The perpetually offended liberals who complain about everything from the US flag and national anthem to Halloween costumes are at it yet again; in what maybe their most absurd complaint about something ever.
Over the Halloween weekend during Sycamore, Illinois’ annual Pumpkin Festival a group of libs started protesting and demanding the removal of a 12-17 year olds pumpkin display depicting Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The display, which mocked Trump and his biggest campaign issue of securing the Southern border, featured a pumpkin Trump standing behind a brick wall that said “Made in China”, while 6 gourds dressed with sombreros were placed near the wall along with a pinata, a sign being held by the Trump pumpkin read “I will build a great wall … to keep out the illegal Gourds.”
The Dekalb Daily Chronicle reports that the group of liberals weren’t offended by the Trump display per say, but by the sombrero wearing gourds:
A handful of people with signs protested during the festival. One sign read “Don’t reward hate.”
Jocelyn Santana, of DeKalb, said many people were bothered by the stereotypical portrayal of Hispanic immigrants, regardless of the intent of the boy who made it.
“The depiction of the culture was offensive,” Santana said. “It impacts the growing Latino population in Sycamore and DeKalb.”
Even worse, she said, was that the display received an award.
“The stereotypical message was validated by the award,” Santana said. “That was the larger issue. That’s what we were protesting.”
Some time during the weekend the boy who created the display and his family voluntarily removed the display after talks between the Sycamore Police, the protesters, the boy and his family and the Sycamore Lions Club which puts on the annual festival.
Prior to its removal the Trump display was given 3rd place in the 12-17 yr old age group for “Satire, news, and current events” category.
Mrs. Santana told the Daily Chronicle that she would have been fine with the display if the gourds were left blank, but decorated with the sombreros she and her 4 children felt offended and thus joined with some others to protest next to the display during part of the 5 day long festival.
If liberals and the Social Justice Warrior crowd want to flip out over this, I’d hate to see how they react in the coming weeks when Thanksgiving displays start popping up all over the country.
As the great Mark Levin has said for years Liberalism is a mental disorder.
