“Shadow Of Death” Haunts Obama In Halloween Display


Yee-haw!

Just when you thought the anti-Obama madness couldn’t get any more insane, Georgia woman Melissa Neese erected this timely Halloween display, which includes both John McCain and Barack Obama. Note, however, that Obama has the “shadow of death” looming behind him, while McCain’s a pristine as could be.

Despite acknowledging her McCain preference, Neese insists she’s not trying to be incendiary:

“It’s kind of like the shadow of death behind Obama. We’re kind of more of McCain advocates,” said Neese.

Neese said neighbors and passersby need not worry.

“It’s just to encourage people to vote. That’s about it. I haven’t really finished it [display]. I was going to put pumpkins and a vote sign up there,” said Neese.

Because pumpkins will really tone down the message.

      I absolutely hate this. I am originally from the south and I should not be this shocked but I am. I pray to God that the secret service
      is on high alert for Obama, because things are getting insane and the crazies are coming out more and more. People yelling out at rallies “Kill Him”. The attempt by McCain and Palin to provoke racial
      discord. There is such a severe desperation in the McCain camp and I am really frightened of where this is all heading. I would rather Obama lose the election than to lose his life and I don’t put anything past his enemies.

      Senator Obama is well aware of the threats on his life. All candidates and Presidents have dealt with threats to their life. If he gives in to these demands, than all people of color might as well just sit down at the back of the bus and give in to these irrational people. I believe that for every 1 irrational individual there are 10 rational. It is this hope that does not allow me to give up on us.

      I love it! It’s called FREEDOM. She can do what she wants on her property. I find it hypocrytical that gay men can walk around naked and suck each other off at Folsom Street Fair on PUBLIC grounds and she get’s a story out of this display?

      We preach that we want equality and that we don’t throw our sexuality in people’s faces and then all I see are images of men in leather and fetish gear performing lewd acts in public as a celebration of who “we” are? And I have to tell my friend’s that we are not all like that after they ask me where my S&M gear is. Can we as a community understand why we are portrayed negatively when people who don’t “get” us see this?

      Yes, I believe we are who we are. We want respect. Let’s respect her views as well.

      I was listening to an Obama speech today and it was just crap; the same thing he’s been trained to say. Nothing original or inspirational like so many people claim he is. People are setting him up so high that his political fall is going to be even more monumental. Besides the electoral college is really electing the next president. I mean who are we kidding right?

      Jon and No. 4 are correct. It is freedom of speech. I want more lunatics to voice their opinion. I want them out in the open and voice what they think. I think that is the best thing for the Obama campaign. It shows the kind of people that are voting for McCain for stupid reasons and what they want to do. They think they are helping the campaign, but in fact they are helping Obama win (which to be honest, he already has, according to CNN/ABC/NBC). So come out, come out where ever you are.

You’re in Canada and you can enjoy full equality under the law, while sipping on your Mocha-Coco-Frappuccino and trashing the American people. Lovely.

      4, Jon, and Mowan, certainly it is freedom of speech, but it is also freedom of speech to speak out against hate-filled and dangerous displays of racism. If we don’t, we’ve abdicated our responsibility as people who actually believe in freedom for everyone.

      the point is not about whether or not this person has the right to say what they want to say,
      this is about the level of racism and hatred that still lives here. I have to say no. 4, your quite strange. I have read a lot of your posts and
      you are a very angry, judgemental person that seems to look for reasons to hate everybody, especially your fellow gay people and their sexual choices. It feels like you were probably sexually abused as a child and have not worked that out. Life is to short to go around hating everything and everybody, get some help so that you can enjoy what you have left of it.

      Okay, I guess I agree with everyone here more or less…

      BUT

      SOMETHING has to be done about tacky holiday decorations! The woman just sounds clueless, (or has found the wisdom, when talking to the press, of pretending to be!)and tastless, which is nearly as bad as being racist. And tastelessness is at the core of all bad behavior.
      So rather than just drive a pick-up through the lurid creche, here is a tasteful alternative.
      Let’s load up said pick-up with willow rods, colorful squashes and gourds, wheat stalks and purple grape clusters for contrast, drive it through the tacky display, and in it’s stead set up a charming display representative of the season and beautifying the neighborhood.
      It will not only be educational, but a good chance to meet with your fellow anonymous, faceless bloggers, solidifying the community and showing the public at large the core values of the Gay community…Art, Beauty, Love, and Pot-lucks!

      Clearly for Jon, freedom of speech ends when women are chatting up a man he’s attracted to. From his blog:

      “When the half point of the class came we were given a break. I rushed to the rest room to check myself out and make sure I was presentable enough to meet my husband. When I got back out these two WHORE SKANK CUNT SLEEZEBAG BITCHES were already talking to him. Cock blocking TRASH!”

      He must be a McCain supporter; they both use the same pejoratives for women.

      I thought we weren’t suppose to criticize those who use their free speech, Jon?

      Ah Justin, I have a fan. One, how is me stating that this lady has freedom to do what she is doing hateful? How is my opinion of gay men having sex in public and calling it a represention of the gay community hateful? How is my opinion of Obama hateful? I look at things from the middle and am rational. I wasn’t molested (although I did joke about it LOL). I am a realist. No sh!t people are still racist in this country. Segregation was still going strong a generation ago.

      There is literally a battle of old culture and new culture. On the gay side of it…we are WAY better off than we were thirty years ago. A lot of people forget about 1978 in San Fransisco. (30 Years almost…drink MILK) I know about it and I wasn’t even born. I studied my “gay” background so I can understand where it came from. That passion is lacking in the gay community. What I do for a living gives me a HUGE perspective on what the gay community says and then does. If I come across angry sometimes, it’s because I hear gay people bitch about something all day and then later they talk about the different guys they hooked up with online and the drugs they did. These are professional men that should be doing something to move things forward. Not dwelling on what Perez Hilton is saying or which random guy they hooked up with. It’s all about the appearance for them. I study outside of what I am told a gay man “should” be. I’m used to me being gay and outsed from the gay community because I don’t jump on every wagon they do.

      As I said before, we need to respect different views, not come across like catty bitches like a lot of you do on here and attack people you don’t even know behind the security of anonimity. A lot of you come across just as hateful as the people you claim are in the wrong.

      And although I am pretty gosh darn smart, I also have a sense of humor and enjoy using it. ;) I also agree that this display could have been executed a lot better. I would have gone gay with it all the way.

To think that you are 3 decades old and come off like some old bitch that never got laid is kind of sad actually. Your actually quite transparent. I don’t how you got this way but I have my theories. I also read your post in the section about the drug addicted porn star, you did have some grandiose story of how superior you are and how you were “kidnapped and molested”, now you say that was a lie. Reality is your beginning to look like a sociopath. Maybe your just another one of Churchill-y’s personalities, that kind of feels right.

If I must explain to someone so one sided…once Obama is president, a lot of his promises will come up short and the media and people that placed him up on a messiah pedestal will then crucify him. It’s human nature.

      And: I hate hummis but thank you. Yup, I am young, fresh and funny and would love a Hip Hop president. Yup, I still think druggies deserve punishment for their crimes and at no time did I say I was superior just because I’ve never dabbled in them. You betcha I actually proof read my posts and consider what is being said since it really is incosequential to the world. Yup, I have it made since I’ve worked hard to do my thing.

      Your implication was that voters have no control over who the next pres will be, but rather, the electoral college does. And that even though Obama is popular with voters, he will not win because you erroneously believed he doesn’t have the EC votes to do so.

      The reason that this election has gone into smear mode is because there is nothing else to talk about. Neither candidate stands for anything. Neither know what to do for the economy, and if you saw Palin -Couric interview I would not count on the V.P.’s helping either. The debates have been so fucking boring that all we look for is who fucks up the least. Both voted for FISA, the government owns your soul now and there is not a damn thing you can do about it, neither are “for” gay marriage. Neither has any real plan to stop the war in Iraq. At this point I think intelligent Americans are trying to decide which of the candidates will do the least damage.
      I travel the world and people are amazed by the leaders we chose in this country. But I always say that the leaders we have are the American peoples fault. We are not victims. We don’t demand anything of our candidates, but we as citizens are so rigid in our values, so unbendable, so unwilling to meet half way on anything that all the candidates have to focus on is avoiding land mines and trying to offend the least amount of people, or offend the right small group of people because to do so would please a larger voting bloc, hence the Christian Reich vs. the Gays. We have become a sad people and we are paying dearly for it, our country is lying in ruins and we really have nobody with the experience, brains, or character to lead us out of it. I think Obama has the brains and character, but not the experience and the willingness to say fuck you to those that must be told.. McCain just wants to be president out of ego, its about him and him alone, he is an elitist wannabe and the presidency might make him think he made it. But he has not the brains, nor character and unfortunately what good is experience when your dumber than a box of rocks and trying to suck every wealthy cock you can get your hands on. So go on and fight about racism, about who has associated themselves with what controversial figure, who dumped their wife for a rich drug addict, yada yada, cause there really is not anything else to decide this election on.

      WITH THE INTENTIONS TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO GO VOTE FOR WHO THEY WANTED .
      SENCE THIS HAS BEEN AIRED ,I HAVE CHANGED MY DISPLAY AND IN A MUCH MORE TASTFULL FASHION
      SO NOW THAT I HAVE BEEN MARKED A RACIST AND GOD KNOWS WHAT ELSE BY PEOPLE THAT DO NOT EVEN KNOW ME ,BY THE WAY MARTIN LUTHER KING IS ONE OF MY HEROS OF ALL TIME . BUT THATS NOT THE POINT IS IT .

      “And since you are such an Obama zealot…look into ACORN. Explain that one to me.”

      – Barack was never an ACORN community organizer.

      – Barack was never an ACORN trainer and never worked for ACORN in any other capacity.

      – ACORN was not part of Project Vote, the successful voter registration drive Barack ran in 1992.

      There, explained. Stop spreading the Faux News-worthy nonsense, thanks.

      If anyone needs to desperately “fix” this election, it is only logical that it’d be the Repubs, not the Dem. party.

      Marcus, I wish i could bash you as just being negative but I am so afraid that you are right. Our country is in an absolute mess, the stock market is tanking to new record lows with each passing day.
      Nothing the government is doing is stopping it, not this bail out, not interest rate drops, not anything. America can only pour in so much cash for so long, unless something rash happens America will be bankrupt within 4 years. The war in Iraq rages on and we could very well be in another at anytime, if McCain wins we will definitely be into it with Iran and/or Russia if he does. The only positive effect is that people are finally conserving gasoline because they cannot afford it anymore.

      But yes Marcus, we will elect our next president based upon the fact they might of hung out once or twice with a controversial figure, or because some loud mouthed bitch from a frozen wasteland makes sure nobody in America forgets one of the candidates middle names is Hussein and her sugar daddy reminds us that he is not one of us. None of our real problems matter to even we citizens because we live in a world where we are more concerned with if 2 of the 3 main characters in a second rate TV show are sucking each others cocks when they get home at night. We Americans have become a selfish, fear mongering, hateful people who only want to oppress anyone we disagree with or plain don’t like, whether they live within our borders or outside of them. Maybe our karma is finally here to be reckoned with, it sure looks that way. Kinda of sad that what ought to be the greatest place on earth, a land where anyone can feel safe being who they are, a land whose prosperity and abundance is so great that we have no reason not to reach out and share our goodness with the world, but thats not what we are. We are a fucking nightmare.

      Wowzers. Paul is still going on with infantile comments? Yup, I’m extremely boring.

      I was just accepting your assessment of your personality, No. 4. Far be it for me to contradict you and proclaim that you are far from boring, when all evidence belies that thought.

      There was a party scheduled at 4:56 when I left the office. They tried to get me to stay…

      Sure. They needed a jackass for the pin the tail on the donkey game.

      …but I had to come home and put up my own display of Obama and McCain out and do it proper.

      Alone, no doubt.

      ASSuming what I meant to say is obivously what you are trying to hold on to here about Obama. I did make it a point that the electoral college is the end game. I never said it would be McCain.

      You implied that the voters who have made Obama popular have no power over his winning the White House; but rather the EC did. And therefore, according to you, he has no chance.

      You understood my typo.

      After years of dealing with people like you, I’m fluent in moron.

      Gestalt filled in your retard sounding sentence.

      I prefer EST.

      And since you are such an Obama zealot…look into ACORN. Explain that one to me.

      Who says I’m an Obama zealot?

      I am registered independent

      Too stupid to know who to vote for and too lazy to actually vote.

      Hence my middle stance on a lot of things which a lot of people seem to think is evil.

      What’s evil is supporting politicians who are working to curtail, or reverse the equality that LGBTQ’s have fought for over the years.

      We Independents are the ones they are fighting for right now.,/i>

      Popular for the first time in your life. How precious.

      We are the ones who don’t have those blind sided party glasses and pose questions, whether to ourselves or others, on who really is the best this time around.

      You’ll end up voting for McCain. And then when your investments tank further; you are federally prevented from marrying, or adopting; lose any anti-discrimination protections you might have had you will blame liberals for pushing a “gay agenda” for the reversal of rights we now have.

      Melissa, thank you for posting here. We occasionally see people who have been mentioned in a posting show up here and leave a comment, and they are not always as polite as yours.

      I think what this news story shows is how desperate the media has become to report on anything other than the election platforms of McCain and Obabam, or how each person plans to fix your country.

      Voters should be dragged into the news because of their absurdity; like the people who think Obama should be killed. Not someone who was putting up a Halloween display–an unfinished one at that.

      Like Greybat wrote, please send Andrew an updated pick of your display for all to see.

      Wow…I have been in this game since late ’94 and I have not had this difficult of a time IDing a troll. No. 4 has me vexed. On the one hand, he is rather un-troll like in that he uses actual words and puntuation and follows up his posts.

      Yet…he displays every other characteristic of the troll to a T. Dance, dance, dance and try to change what you just said two posts above that we can all scroll back up and read. Self-righteous, saying just off the wall things for no other reason than to get a reaction or having an 8th grade fascination with naughty words. Hyperbole. Even the wolf in the sheep, I mean a gay guy that bashes the “public sex” that we all freaking know does not occur any more among gays than it does amongst the hoes and johns in my neigborhood.

      I mean, it is almost like he is wearing a “#1 Troll” t-shirt. But he has a blog and actually writes. Man, I am stumped…what appears to be a legitimate writer acting like a spoiled potty-mouthed brat.

      If you are out for the lulz, take ‘em, you have earned them well.

      To the central point of this article:
      – It is free speech and she can put up anything she wants in her front yard.
      – It is free speeck and we have every right to call her “racist” or anything else we please based on our interpretation of what she put in her front yard.

      Sometimes the neo-cons are so hypocritical it is like watching a paradox mate with a kangoo.

      Ghost, Your free speech does not give you the right to call someone a racist or “anything else we please”. That’s called SLANDER and LIBEL and DEFAMATION. You certainly have a right to offer your opinion, but calling someone racist requires facts. This woman displaying a piece of art that YOU deem racist does not make it a fact that she is a racist.

      The Obama campaign donated $800,000 to ACORN registration efforts of low income communities during the early stages of this campaign. How can one say that it’s not relevant considering that many of those registrants have come up forged and even desceased living at the address of a fast food restaurant?

      What’s even more odd is that the media only gave it ten minutes of coverage. It hasn’t been investigated and attempts to locate offices came up empty. Was he directly involved? Who knows, but the campaign should address it and clear the air.

      Mr Gh0st…no need to call someone you don’t know a troll I’m actually known to be quite exotic and have a fan club or two. I can deal with golden skinned hazel eyed troll ;) I must admit I’ve never been to a T.Dance. I said public sex at Folsom…not at the Waffle House. LOL. And yes, I write…where will always be a mystery but I can assure you 99% of gay men know about it and love it and it’s global since I can write in more than three languages. I am not a wolf in gay’s low cut jean clothing. I am more than a part of the community. I am just not satisified and very dissapointed with how apathetic a lot of the LGBT community still is. Has anyone even looked at current HIV/STD statistics and safe (or lack thereof) sex practices?

      Politically, has Obama even acknowledged what he will support for the LGBT community? Has he back tracked? Is Michelle fabulous? Will I be able to wear a ring after putting up with my Troll loving lover for years and have it acknowledged in Arkansas?

      A HUGE mistake gay people make is the same one that the “enemy” makes. Both are quick to pop their claws and close their minds. Someone thinking that the Middle Man can’t make up his mind has already closed his. If California or any other state opens the door to marriage equality, you are going to need a Middle Man to mediate the divorce.

      My opinion of what I think is what has people like some (obviously one in particular) on here, making childish insults over a blog. No one asks questions. If they do, they already have an answer in mind and will reject anything that doesn’t match it. And yes, I can be bratty but only when dealing with idiots that are quick to insult so why not make a joke out of it?

      Bottom line and to bring it back to the original topic of this particular Queerty post: Melissa should have had Obama and McCain hugging and placed the looming shadow of death over both their heads.

      Doubtless you’ve heard the smears by now: that ACORN is committing “voter fraud”, on behalf of Obama, in hotly contested swing states. The media has been all too happy to pass that garbage on, without bothering to note that, in fact, the organization attempts to authenticate every registration form their workers submit and by law they must turn in every form to election officials — even if they find a registration to be fraudulent when they call the phone number submitted on the form, or if the forms are otherwise suspect or incomplete.

      They do so, and they flag all questionable registration forms as being suspect before turning them in to officials.

      Of course they have. They have to by law. But what those GOP despots of democracy always forget to mention is that it was ACORN themselves who notified officials about the potentially fraudulent and/or incomplete forms in the first place!

      http://tinyurl.com/3r22dm

      What’s even more odd is that the media only gave it ten minutes of coverage. It hasn’t been investigated

      Google turns up 1,890,000 hits for obama+acorn. Yeah, that’s right, No. 4, no one is looking at this.

      http://tinyurl.com/46zep2

      Not oddly enough, most of those hits are for anti-Obama sites who erroneously believe this is the next Whitewater.

      Here’s a bit of absurdity from noquarterusa.net:

      The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), with a smattering of Obama and ACORN thrown in to the mix assisted in the creation of the subprime housing saga.

      See! Obama caused the housing crisis.

      Then you wonder why the “media” isn’t paying attention this? Obama represented a large group of organizations–one of which was ACORN–in a law suit some years back. That’s pretty much it.

      I was only able to find a handful of partisan and non-partisan sites reporting this story. The rest were all right wing sites claiming that Obama caused the housing crisis, is funding terrorists through ACORN all the way to Obama is using ACORN to over throw the gov’t so that his Muslim friends can take over America. Insane.

      Rather than cut and past endless paragraphs, read a Huffington post article for yourself:

      If this has not been investigated, then how do you know offices are empty?

      You should change your screen name to Walter Mitty.

      Politically, has Obama even acknowledged what he will support for the LGBT community?

      Again, the things he supports and will pursue for us are so numerous, it would take up too much space here to post them all. So get down off your high horse and read the link.

      Has he back tracked? Is Michelle fabulous? Will I be able to wear a ring after putting up with my Troll loving lover for years and have it acknowledged in Arkansas?

      Your lover deserves the Hope diamond for being able to put up with you for years.

      A HUGE mistake gay people make is the same one that the “enemy” makes. Both are quick to pop their claws and close their minds.

      Considering some of the comments you’ve left here, I find the above ridiculous and pompous.

      Someone thinking that the Middle Man can’t make up his mind has already closed his.

      It’s clear that you’ve already made up your mind.

      If California or any other state opens the door to marriage equality, you are going to need a Middle Man to mediate the divorce.

      If it involves your husband taking you for everything you’ve got, I’d be happy to start a fund to pay for the attorneys.

      My opinion of what I think is what has people like some (obviously one in particular) on here, making childish insults over a blog.

      And that is not childish?

      What has readers and posters upset, is the fact that you have no qualms about voting for a man and party who will actively work against LGBTQ equality. You question the free speech of others, while defending the free speech of another. And lastly, you opinion–or, rather–lack of opinion is apparent. You haven’t written anything worth noting, No 4.

      No one asks questions.

      Yourself included.

      If they do, they already have an answer in mind and will reject anything that doesn’t match it.

      Such as yourself and your dubious Obama/ACORN accusations.

      And yes, I can be bratty but only when dealing with idiots that are quick to insult so why not make a joke out of it?

      If by being bratty, you mean you’re acting like a child–a child in a man’s world–then I agree. The reason for the insults? You’ve set the standard:

      I find it hypocrytical that gay men can walk around naked and suck each other off at Folsom Street Fair on PUBLIC grounds and she get’s a story out of this display?

      In your mind this is all gay men do. Except for you of course, your highness. This reads like the trash written over at The Malcontent, or North Dallas Thirty’s blog. And since it reads like that garbage, it will be treated and responded to as such.

      Bottom line and to bring it back to the original topic of this particular Queerty post…

      The bottom line is, you shouldn’t have come onto Queerty, insulting gay men, while protesting against those gay men who were using their freedom of speech to protest something they disagree with.

      The other Halloween display I thought was very dead on in its message; except McCain did correct some of his rabble rousers where as this display reads to me “I hope he dies”. What I find ironic is that their should be a shadow behind each of them. McCain for his Age, and Obama for his race + our society. Either way which VP would you want to take over?

      I don’t have much confidence is the Secret Service bothering to protect Obama. My understanding is that WBush’s ideological purging of the Justice Department also included the Secret Service. Mostly likely, you would be hard-pressed to find a Secret Service agent who isn’t an evangelical or extremist ideologue (i.e., those who believe Obama an the enemy of Jesus and/or anti-American).

      Why is everyone upset – it is clearly not Obama or Biden. I’m not sure who it is, but it doesn’t resemble either. If it’s intended to be the two of them, it was clearly put together by an imbecile without a basic ability to differentiate facial characteristics. Maybe the whole thing is a plea for help, a tortured soul expressing their utter lack of any sensibility or intelligence.
