In the Norfolk Nebraska 4th of July parade the honorable mention winners were the "Norfolk Odd Fellows" whose float depicted a zombie like character standing outside an outhouse titled the "Presidential Library".
The dog whistling was loud enough to catch the attention of the US Justice Department. Nebraska Watchdog reported that a "mediator" from the Us Justice Department Civil Rights Division visited the Norfolk City Government and after productive meetings the city will organize a multicultural group to discuss racism and getting along.claims that civil rights division mediators visit communities to quell racial tension after hate crimes have occurred, such as when a lunatic shot up a Sikh temple a few years ago in Wisconsin. The Justice Department credits the 1964 civil rights act and the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 for establishing and expanding this program.
But here all that happened was a float went down the street during the 4th of July that criticized the Administration.
Let’s see if the multicultural focus group somehow gains a veto on parade entries next year.
