Caged Obama, Hillary on parade float causes stir in South Dakota

Highmore’s 50th annual Settler’s Day is “just a wonderful time to get together and come back home,” Mayor Vikki Day said, but an interesting float at this year’s parade is giving some folks palpitations.

“I had to think about it with the mask of Obama, coming out as racist,” Jeff Damer, creator of the controversial float, told KSFY. “I just wanted to put it out there, it was just my view that they should be charged, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.”

The float featured a trailer with two people inside a cage wearing Obama and Clinton masks, the word “Guantanamo” spray-painted on a sign above. Another man wearing a President Trump mask stood outside the cell next to a makeshift wall with the words “Build the Wall.”

The trailer was ringed with numerous American flags, and featured Trump Make America Great Again flags flying from the rear gate.

Day told the news site the city received a lot of calls and messages from people complaining about the float, but officials don’t regret allowing Damer to participate in the parade.

2. And the no-neck clod that came up with this, is called Jeffrey Damer.

Pronounced Dah-mer.

You just can't make this stuff up.

4. I hear you.

Many are of the opinion that show trials against Obama-era officials and other Democrats - the kind one sees in Argentina - could 'never happen' here.

I'm not so sure.

7. And looking at Google

I'm not certain that Highmore, SD even has paved streets. Crossroads in literally middle of nowhere, hour away from closest Interstate and even further to major city. While that sort of life appeals to me, believe i'd be a bit more careful in where I want to live next, as to live next to idiots who buy into whatever lie Hairplug Himmler is selling them next.

These people personify the word “deplorable.”

9. Jesus. I'm sorry I clicked on it too

Read the comments. Absolutely sickening and deplorable. Also fascinating- those “red blooded American men” think Melania is hot and are constantly commenting on it. They LOVE her nude lesbian porn photos. Sick!

12. Why the fuck are we linking to an EXTREME RIGHT WING SITE?

The American Mirror is an extreme right news source/blog that does not have an about page or contact information.

17. Who paid them this time?

https://money.cnn.com/2018/02/20/media/internet-research-agency-unwitting-trump-supporters/index.html

A Donald Trump supporter who unwittingly helped a Kremlin-linked operation to meddle in American politics says he only learned of his part in the Russian plot when the FBI showed up at his doorstep months later.

Harry Miller was paid as much as $1,000 by the Russians to build a cage that was used to depict a person dressed as Hillary Clinton in a prison cell at a rally in West Palm Beach, Florida in August 2016.

The stunt was part of an elaborate scheme run by the Internet Research Agency, a troll group in St Petersburg, Russia with links to the Kremlin, that was designed to undermine the American political system, according to a new federal indictment. The agency and thirteen Russian nationals associated with it were named in the indictment, which was made public by Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office on Friday.

In early August 2016, the indictment says, the Internet Research Agency began reaching out to Trump supporters in Florida to organize a statewide "flashmob" that it dubbed "Florida goes Trump."

19. We just don't understand these people

And are unfairly "demonizing' them instead of trying to understand them.
