The US Secret Service is investigating an effigy of President Barack Obama found hanging from a building in the hometown of ex-president Jimmy Carter, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Monday.
The paper said footage from the local WALB-TV station showed the doll was hanging by a noose in front of a red, white and blue sign that says, "Plains, Georgia. Home of Jimmy Carter, our 39th President."
A witness told the television station that the doll wore a sign with Obama's name on it, according to the report.
A Secret Service spokesman said the doll was removed Saturday but declined further comment, the paper said.
Now we have al-Queda emboldened who are upping their threats to this nation and we're more interested in a hanging effigy of Obama? That makes national news?
Personally, I'm not one to go out and hang an effigy. If there is any "race" motive to this (as the liberals would claim), I'd be willing to bet it's staged to make it look like one. Finally, where were the Secret Service when the following effigys/hangings were done?
Video of Bush burned in effigy in Washington DC, on the day the Age of Obama began
and in Alaska.
Oh yes, I forgot, in the above cases, it was "free speech."
