Right Wing Applaud Man Who Puts Severed Obama Head in His Yard

An Idaho man really does not like Obama. In fact, he hates him so much he decided to express his disgust by putting his decapitated head on a stick in his front yard this Halloween.

Richard Piersol sees absolutely nothing wrong with the graphic display in his yard and insists it is his right to put an Obama head wherever he wants.

“It’s like free speech. I am pretty much saying I don’t like his politics, and I don’t like him. That’s it,”Piersol explained to KBOI.

He also scoffed at the idea that it is racist, especially since he said his black friends think it is cool too.

“I’ve got a couple of African-American friends of mine that have given me more ideas to put out there to make it look gorier,” he claimed. “And it’s like ‘no, I don’t want to do that. That might offend somebody’”.

His neighbor Wally Lester said that he thinks the display is pretty great and even told his kid that it was not biased at all.

“My son asked me if it was a little bit prejudice towards certain individuals, say maybe the president because it has a head over there with a machete, I said no I don’t think it’s directed towards anybody. I think it just happens to be that situation the way they put it together,” Lester told the local news.

Right Wing News even used the decapitated head display to gloat about how conservatives are not really racist, just anti-Obama, as Piersol and his friends clearly ‘prove’ according to them.

“This is freaking hilarious and awesome. some people don’t like the President, and some do,” Right Wing News said of the decapitated Obama head.  “And guess what? You aren’t racist, just because this one is black. He is half-black, by the way. I think most people hate the white and the black side equally.”

    This is going way too far. The worst thing people did when Nixon was president was make posters of him selling used cars.

    It’s just ignorance, the president is probably laughing at all this stupidity, and it’s not changing the fact he’s president, and will be for two more years. Dummies need to get over it!

    As much as I disagree with this display, he has a perfectly good right to decorate his yard however he sees fit. Years from now people will realize and admit how much good he has accomplished. Just like all other Presidents before him, Obama will be recognized after he’s out of office.

    Okay, I am wondering if mayhaps my uber conservative neighbors would get a big kick out of my sticking a mannequin with a Nathan Deal head on it on a cross in the front yard for Halloween, it could be recyled for Easter later on too.
