    what hmmmmm? is there a history of obnoxious white women being lynched? if they talked about raping her would have been another story.

    but that's too complicated for you, eh?

    hmmmmmm

    Arresting the person who did the tasteless Palin display would have been harder because it was done on private property. The Hanging of Obama at the University of Kentucky was done on public property and probably without the consent of the property owner. Both acts were tasteless IMHO. I would also point out that the person in CA did take it down after public outcry. Both actions have no place in our political discourse especially at an institute of higher learning.

    I actually agree with you. My point was due to the obvious implication of the OP.

    Done on private property verses the Public's property is the difference....certainly you can understand the difference k-man?

    From your article....

    now this one was at a PRIVATE college, a SUPPOSED Christian college, so these guys were not punished by out government but to me, this is the most offensive of all, because it was done by CHRISTIANS going to this CHRISTIAN college....and it is an absolute SHAME for this to happen with SUPPOSED confessed Christians...they are suppose to represent me...:(

    Its 2008 they shouldn't have been arrested for this. GET OVER IT PEOPLE!!!!!!!! If the people who hung the Palin effigy weren't arrested then neither should these two.

    But but but I thought this election wasn't about race or history. After all what happened before BHO was born shouldn't count right?

    Yes-burning him in effigy would be much more appropriate and historically sensitive. I think the guillotine is also acceptable.

    I get it but an arrest is extreme.
