Yes, the last two words of the headline were sarcastic. :)

Seventy-three-year-old Don Christy wore an orange prison jumpsuit and a shaggy blond wig as he drove a golf cart displaying a campaign poster for presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump on Monday in the Independence Day parade in Sheridan, near Indianapolis.

The parade entry seemed to show an Obama effigy sitting on a toilet that read "Royal Flush."

...

In 2014, an Independence Day parade float in Nebraska ignited an outrage — showing a figure standing outside an outhouse labeled "Obama Presidential Library."

Because it's racist to associate black people with flushing a toilet?

Ever since Bush got out of office, Republicans have been going out of their way to prove every bad thing that's ever been said about them.

Especially the fella behind this whole thing, scum and nothing more.

"Someone else is an a-hole, too, so it's okay for me." Yup, gotta love that logic. :applaud

Why not?

The left uses that excuse all the time. Why can't anybody else?

Every major city in the country has Black Hebrew Israelites preaching real hatred and advocating for hate crimes. They aren't trying to hide, its just that the media isn't interested in talking about them because Black Racism Doesn't Matter.

Remember that it goes back much farther than 2008. It started around the time of the first civil rights movements and Nixon's "Southern strategy" for the GOP.

I'll bet you can't come up with one public figure on the left who can be quoted as saying anything like that.

No, but public figures are irrelevant to this discussion.

But, for sure, I can come up with oodles of DP members who have said that kind of thing...maybe even you, eh?

Hey if that's your standard, someone on DP is bound to have said practically anything, no matter how asinine.

designing a parade float calling the president a lying african/african lion on the 4th of july of all holidays, is insanely racist, why do you need that explained to you?

Of course the above just the opinion of a lone crank with no substantiation behind it. Also quite common here on DP.

I believe he's just trying to claim that racism is okay because the 'other side' does it.

i dont think hes saying racism is okay, i think hes saying racism is okay against black people.
