    Halloween Palin Prop Sparks Controversy In West Holly

    How are they getting away with this.

    "I know it's Halloween, but when you're using a vice presidential candidate with a noose around her neck, that to me has gone too far," a man identified only as "George" stated.
    "Whether I'm Republican or Democrat, it's not about that. It's about this and a noose, and it's just wrong."

    "I know if we had done it with Barack Obama, people would've probably thrown things through our windows," Morrisette said.

    "The image of a hanged black man is a lot more intense than the image of a hanged white woman

    If someone had hung Adolf Obama in effigy, Jesse Jackasson would be there crapping his pants in righteous indignation and it would be covered by every network.

    Of course it's difficult to hang Plugs Biden in effigy, unless the manequin had the word "retard" written on it.

    The page also shows that McCain raising out of some flames is part of the display, and then the "artists" (libspeak for "excuse to do or say whatever I want") saying everything is fair game on Halloween. Fine then, where is Obama with a Biden ventriloquist dummy/corpse on his lap? Or Obama carrying a big hammer and sickle, slashing at the Constitution? It's all fair game, right?
    Romans 6:18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.

    Differences between Obama and God: God's plan to save us is actually written down for people to read. Rush Limbaugh.

    I have a feeling you would be singing a different tune if it had been the Messiah up there.

    The local news rewards retards by televising their "art"
    At least once every human should have to run for his life, to teach him that milk does not come from supermarkets, that safety does not come from policemen, that news is not something that happens to other people. ~ Robert Heinlein

    Outrage comes from both sides when this imagery is used with a Democrat candidate, but only from the right when it is used with a Republican candidate. Hypocracy much?

    I think someone should do the same thing with Obama and Biden and call it art. Heck, add a burning cross.
