Military Veteran Builds a Parade Float. Now the Department of Justice is Coming Down On Him.

We had a good run, America. A good run indeed. But the constitutional order and the mutual respect for the freedoms of assembly, religion and speech is coming to a swift end.

This, my friends, is fundamental transformation.

The U.S. Department of Justice has joined the discussions over a controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade.

The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue. Also at the meeting were the NAACP, the Norfolk mayor and The Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

The Odd Fellows organized the parade. One of the floats included a zombie-like mannequin standing near an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library.”

The float’s creator, Dale Remmich, has said the mannequin depicted himself, not President Barack Obama. He said he is upset with the president’s handling of the Veterans Affairs Department.

The float says, without words, that Obama treats veterans who need the Veterans Administration like excrement.

AG Eric Holder has his troops looking into this obviously protected political speech, while he pointedly has them not looking into the IRS scandal or the Obama administration’s serial violations of the Hatch Act.

Those are at least possible crimes in play. Making a float to protest a scandal most definitely is not.

Or it wasn’t, until the thin-skinned Barack Obama and race-baiter Eric Holder came along.
