Norfolk Wing Nut Doctor hates President Obama so much that he hangs a Nazi flag

Dr. William Wheeler, a viciously anti-Obama Norfolk resident, decided to shock and offend his neighbors by hanging a Nazi flag because the President took executive action on immigration.

VA Wingnut Hangs Nazi Flag To Protest Obama’s Immigration Action

Local news channel 3 is reporting that a resident in the Ghent neighborhood of Norfolk, VA found a most peculiar way of protesting President Obama’s decision to take executive action on the issue of immigration: to hang a Nazi flag outside his home. The man who hung the flag, Dr. William Wheeler, would not speak on camera to the news station reporting the story.

However, an area resident who came to see the situation for herself and to address Dr. Wheeler about the flag, did. However, when Beth Booker tried to talk to Dr. Wheeler about the flag, she says that instead of reasonable discourse, she was instead insulted. Booker says of the incident:

I wanted to have a dialogue with him as to why he hung that hate flag out in the neighborhood. It’s amazing how somebody can have so much hate in them and feel it’s okay to express themselves. Granted, there’s freedom of speech. He can do and say whatever he wants to, but I think you need to have some respect for people in this country. And that flag represents nothing but hate.


Maybe they don't want us to vote...

What's up with the White English Speaking World?

The legislative bodies of the white English speaking world are now led by right/center right political parties. With the election of the Republicans to both houses of Congress, we now join The UK, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia with conservatives in charge of our national legislators.

Anyone has any idea what's going on here?

Is this just a co-inky-dink? Or what?

The Smithsonian Names Sarah Palin One Of The Top 100 Most Significant Americans

The Smithsonian Names Sarah Palin One Of The Top 100 Most Significant Americans, Leaves Out President Obama

In the following list, which of these people don’t belong?

Abraham Lincoln
George Washington
Franklin Roosevelt
Neil Armstrong
Martin Luther King Jr.
Frederick Douglass
Eleanor Roosevelt
Sarah Palin
Hellen Keller
Thomas Jefferson
Frank Sinatra
Michael Jackson
Mark Twain
Walt Disney
George W. Bush
Henry Ford
Jackie Robinson
Babe Ruth
Steve Jobs
Muhammad Ali

This is merely 20 of the people Smithsonian Magazine included in its list of the 100 most influential Americans of all-time. ALL-TIME! That means in all of American history, even prior to the founding of our nation.

And if you immediately picked out Sarah Palin as one the people on this list who stick out like a sore thumb, congratulations. You’re a sane and intelligent person.

The other person, though more deserving of the honor than Palin and yet probably doesn’t belong there either, is George W. Bush.

Smithsonian put together their list by enlisting Steven Skiena, Distinguished Teaching Professor of Computer Science at Stony Brook University, and Charles B. Ward, an engineer at Google who is an expert in ranking methodologies. The pair used “an algorithmic method of ranking historical figures, just as Google ranks web pages,” and “their concept of significance has less to do with achievement than with an individual’s strength as an Internet meme — how vividly he or she remains in our collective memory.”
