Huntsville, Utah’s July 4th parade featured a float (a car) with a license plate saying “ObamaNation,” and sign – “Huntsville Welcomes Obama’s Farewell Tour.” Another sign: Ask About our Assault Weapon Ban – Call Eric Holder. The Secret Service has been notified, don’t cha know! Great video showing it all below.
Weber County Sheriff Lt. Mark Lowther told KSTU his department called the Secret Service after some residents claimed the float represented a direct threat to President Obama.
The people of Huntsville say they are patriotic and the parade is a huge event for the small town. Basically, the people of Huntsville and surrounding areas don’t much care what anyone else thinks. Huntsville rocks!…oh but wait:
City Council member Laurie Allen and Huntsville Mayor Jim Truett told KSTU the parade entry does not reflect the views of the city. Further, city officials argue the float was entered at the last minute and had they seen it, it would not have been approved.
“I don’t think we would have allowed it, in fact I know we wouldn’t,” Allen said. “We just don’t want that. It’s a family-oriented celebration.”
Obama’s “farewell tour” is definitely family oriented. Council members, who have been accused of being “racist,” (no surprise there) are missing the point. My prediction: July 4th, 2013 won’t be nearly as much fun. Read more at The Blaze
