DOJ investigates Nebraska parade float critical of Obama

DOJ investigates Nebraska parade float critical of Obama


The U.S. Department of Justice has sent a member of its Community Relations Service team to investigate a Nebraska parade float that criticized President Obama.

A Fourth of July parade float featured at the annual Independence Day parade in Norfolk sparked criticism when it depicted a zombie-like figure resembling Mr. Obama standing outside an outhouse, which was labeled the “Obama Presidential Library.”


The Nebraska Democratic Party called the float one of the “worst shows of racism and disrespect for the office of the presidency that Nebraska has ever seen.”

The Omaha World-Herald reported Friday that the Department of Justice sent a CRS member who handles discrimination disputes to a Thursday meeting about the issue.

Also at the meeting were the NAACP, Norfolk mayor Sue Fuchtman and the Norfolk Odd Fellows, which coordinated the parade.

The float’s creator, Dale Remmich, has said the mannequin depicted himself, not President Obama. He said he is upset with the president’s handling of the Veterans Affairs Department, the World-Herald reported.

“Looking at the float, that message absolutely did not come through,” said NAACP chapter president Betty C. Andrews.

They'll find that Dale and the Oddfellows are just trying to live up to their name.

Odd no one from the IRS was at the meeting.  I'm sure Holder will be sending them an email.

The Community Relations Service (CRS) is part of the United States Department of Justice. The office is intended as a peacemaker "for community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, and national origin" and was created by the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Originally under the Department of Commerce it was moved to the Department of Justice by order of President Johnson. - 


If an investigation is warranted, seems like the perfect group to peacefully investigate.

I guess the fools are getting the attention they sought.

 Why is it a liberal that constantly brings up race or relgion? I didn't say that.

I always think of parade floats as being pretty, having a funny theme, etc. but that thing is just plain ugly not to mention in poor taste. But as others have said, they're getting the attention they wanted.
