Man, this is getting irritating. Now, you can’t even decorate your house for Halloween without some neighborhood busy-body screaming “Oh, that’s so racist.”
A photo of the Halloween decoration at the center of the controversy shows a faceless, but life-sized figure hanging from a chimney. Some members of the community thought it represented a lynching and that the figure in the noose was black.
“This is very sensitive. This is something that has gone on in American history that we won’t forget,” Millie Hazlewood. “But we don’t have to keep on recycling and bring it back up, and at this point in time, no.”
Excuse me, Millie, you over-sensitive knucklehead, but YOU were the one who brought it up. You thought these racist thoughts, not the decorators. Would it have been better if the person was white? Isn’t that racist, Millie? You would rather the person hanged be white?
They have done this every year. Now…not so much:
The decoration has now been removed, replaced by a sign claiming they will no longer decorate for Halloween and Christmas.
The homeowners place the blame for that decision on Millie Hazlewood.
These people won’t stop until they suck the joy and life out of everything.
“I had never intended anything that I had put up to come across as a hate crime,” son David Maines said.
David Maines said he was trying to come up with his own version of a figure called Gallows Kicking Body he saw on a Halloween Web site. The problem? The online version costs $3,500.
Millie, you should be ashamed. Now you have caused this boy to start to think twice before doing something, to silence himself, out of fear of offending someone. Great work.
And another thing, these noose findings are a fraud. I’m not buying it. And if it turns out they are, then the perpetrators are getting the results they wanted.
