presidential library-2

Remember when the Bush Department of Justice investigated the placing of a billboard on Tenth Avenue in Manhattan, with the words “This Is Our President” and a picture of President Bush as Alfred E. Neuman?

Yeah, neither do I.

That billboard remained there for the last two years of W.’s Presidency.

But back then, we were all guaranteed the right of Freedom of Speech, so nothing happened. No investigation, no comment from the Bush Administration.

Fast forward to July 4, 2014. The citizens of Norfolk, Nebraska, held a parade, and one of the parade floats, a flatbed truck, held a “zombie-like mannequin” standing next to an outhouse labeled “Obama Presidential Library.”

Via Daily Caller: Eric Holder Gets Serious About Limiting Speech, Investigates Obama Outhouse Parade Float

The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating a float that appeared at the annual Fourth of July parade in the small town of Norfolk, Neb. because the float featured a blue flatbed truck carrying a zombie-looking mannequin in overalls on the door of an outhouse labeled “OBAMA PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY.”

The Justice Department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team to Norfolk (pronounced “Norfork” by many locals.)

The Community Relations Service team investigates disputes concerning discrimination.

The Justice Department bureaucrat attended a meeting on Thursday about the float fracas. Also in attendance at the meeting were representatives of the NAACP, the town mayor and members of The Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the group that organizes the yearly parade.

The man behind the controversial float, Dale Remmich, has explained that the overalls-clad mannequin in front of the outhouse represented himself — not President Barack Obama. The point he was trying to make concerned his frustration with Obama’s mismanagement of the Veterans Affairs Department….

The parade committeeman noted that the float was a huge hit with most people who watched it proceed slowly by. It even won an honorable mention in the awards ceremony….

Personally, I think Holder needs to “lighten up.”

And I am providing the official Merriam-Webster definition of the term:

Lighten up: intransitive verb: to take things less seriously.

Really, the last thing I need is an investigation by the DOJ…

    Hahaha! That’s funny, Shifra, and appropriate. Obummer’s WH is just so sensitive (snift, snift). Remember when Holder made noise about walking away after the re-election, but then decided he wouldn’t because there were still some things he and OBummer wanted to accomplish? Besides erasing our borders, I’m thinking this was it. #PansyMen

    He’s lucky the comparison was with the building and not with its contents …

    Maybe there’s a laptop in there with a wireless internet connection.

    We don’t care what color you are Eric and Barry. We just care that you both are Bolsheviks who hate the USA.

    If liberals didn’t have double standards, they would have no standards at all.

    Nebraska Governor asked HHS several questions about the illegal immigrant kids being shipped there and HHS said that it would provide no information in response to Governor’s questions. Transparency!

    This is great! Whenever I hear about the future DB Library, I will always think of this. I’m thinking of building one in my yard.
