Obama, Hillary Clinton in cage in small-town parade - WND

3-3 minutes

Settler’s Day in the small plains town of Highmore, South Dakota, is a fine time to “get together and come back home,” says Mayor Vikki Day.

The town usually doesn’t create a stir.

Its population peaked at more than 1,100 back in the 1950s, and it’s only about 800 now and falling. Median income is just $29,000 and it covers a mere 1.9 square miles.

But a float in the Settler’s Day parade has people talking far beyond Highmore.

Because it featured caricatures of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in a cage, with a President Donald Trump character on the outside.

The creator of the float, Jeff Damer, explained it represented his feelings.

“I just wanted to put it out there, it was just my view that I feel that they should be charged, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton,” he said in a report by KSFY-TV in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Mayor Day said the city received many messages from people who insisted the float should have been censored, but she disagreed.

“My stance, and the city’s stance is that every person has a right to the First Amendment, to express his or her speech, and the expressions of it, we do not regulate that,” she said.

A blogger in the region, Kevin Woster, considered the float “objectionable.”

But Damer credits his critic for being “civil,” trying to “moderate his page, cussing, insults, this and that.”

Woster said, “I think we’re making some progress.

Damer explained he didn’t want to come across as racist by portraying Obama behind bars.

Damer told KSFY that his regret was that he put his town in a negative light.

On the message board site, one user wrote, “Some people are still under the illusion that there is equal justice for all with the evidence against Hilly and the evidence coming to light that Barry tried to use the power of the Federal govt to over turn an election, jail is too good for these two.”

Another said that was a parade he “woulda happily gone to!”


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
