It's Okay To Hang Palin.

The PG-13 link is [url="http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-palineffigy29-2008oct29,0,1328064.story"]here[/url].

This is probably the most disturbing anti-Palin act yet. It is one thing to try to protest and block traffic and try to shout out a candidate at an event rally. What happened in California flies over the line and then looks back and spits on it. :sadder:

Like. Seriously. This is...really pushing it.

Now. If I were to do the exact same thing except with Obama...I would be shot out of the air so fast.

This is clear racism. Apparently it is okay to hang a white person as a sign of opinion...I can guarantee you it is not okay to symbolize the hanging of a black person.

This is utterly despicable and beak-dropping.

I really don't know what to say. Edited by eagle_eye222001

Because it's NOT a death threat. I doubt they did it because they want to kill her. They did it to prove a point or to be funny, not because they actually want her dead.

And I garauntee you it would be perceived as a death threat if it was Obama there, or Joe Biden hanging there and Obama up in the chimney on fire instead of McCain. I loves me some political satire, but this is equivical to the burning of mock-dolls of famous people as a sign of hatred. it would be more of a joke if they portrayed Palin as a vampire and McCain as a zombie. Now THERE's hollowe'en related political jokes.

think about it if somebody did that about Obama the person would be beaten by people and be called racist but [i]SINCE[/i] it's Palin(who we need to remeber accepted a down syndrome baby with loving and open arms) and is (gasp) conservative woman politician who actually holds values then hey Freedom of Speech! I see double standards.

Don't forget she's a gun-totting 'bada**' who wants to nuke Russia and is a buety Queen! In that respect it totally ok to diss her like this.

Also, watch this video:

[url="http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-palineffigy28-2008oct28,0,541630.story"]http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-pa...,0,541630.story[/url]

Wait till the part where the reporter interveiws an Obama supporter, (she's the female one with Sunglasses, can't miss her), and listen to her words.

[u]Basically she says this:[/u]
[b]Girl:[/b] Yes they should be allowed to keep that up, I have nothing against it, hey Palin would even think its funny, right? I mean she's a gun totting bada** who likes killing things and all. Freedom of Speech, (something along those lines)
[b]Reporter:[/b] So you'd be ok if those guys had Obama up there instead right?
[b]Girl:[/b] Oh no, I'd burn the house down.
[b]Reporter:[/b] *stutters in surprise* B-but isn't that double-
[b]Girl:[/b] Yes thats waht i'd define as double standards, (almost proudly)

Wow.

It's in bad taste to do this in any circumstance. However, it is free speech.
