The creator this South Dakota parade float sure knows how to get the left all hot and bothered. One might say they were "triggered" by this float.
South Dakota's 50th Annual Settler's Day parade was a big hit. One of the floats at the parade caused some serious controversy.
The creator of this float, Jeff Damer, said he feels that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama should be charged with crimes. That was what inspired him to create this float.
"I just wanted to put it out there, it was just my view that I feel that they should be charged, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton," said Damer.
Damer did express regret it may have shed a bad light on his town.
“It’s just a wonderful time to get together and come back home,” said Vikki Day, the Mayor of Highmore.
But one parade float did get people talking.
“I had to think about it with the mask of Obama, coming out as racist,” said Jeff Damer, the creator of the controversial float.
The float portrays former President Barack Obama in a cage with Hillary Clinton, while current President Donald Trump stands on the outside.
“I just wanted to put it out there, it was just my view that I feel that they should be charged, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton,” said Damer.
Damer’s float has stirred up a lot of talk on social media. Highmore Mayor Vikki Day says city officials have received a lot of messages from people who think she shouldn’t have allowed the float.
“My stance, and the city’s stance is that every person has a right to the first amendment, to express his or her speech, and the expressions of it, we do not regulate that,” said Day.
What was great about it was the interview where the woman explains that the cities stance is that they back freedom of speech. They refuse to back down from their decision to let the Hillary and Obama behind bars float be a part of the parade.
The left is all about freedom of speech as long as it is anything they agree with. Since this float had Crooked Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama behind bars they are up in arms over this.
One of those upset by the float was South Dakota blogger Kevin Woster. He feels the float came off as offensive. Woster shared wrote an article sharing his views on the float:
