Bu$h saysNoose Displays "Deeply Offensive"
WASHINGTON (AP) Feb. 12. 2008
President Bush said Tuesday that recent displays of nooses are disturbing and indicate that some Americans may be losing sight of the suffering that blacks have endured across the nation.
"The era of rampant lynching is a shameful chapter in American history," Bush said at a black history month event at the White House, which began with serious comments about prejudice and ended with music performed by The Temptations.
"The noose is not a symbol of prairie justice, but of gross injustice," the president said. "Displaying one is not a harmless prank. Lynching is not a word to be mentioned in jest."
As a civil society, Americans should agree that noose displays and lynching jokes are "deeply offensive," Bush said. "They are wrong," the president said, referring to such displays and jokes. "And they have no place in America today."
George Duhbya Bu$h praised the Iraqis for giving fair trial.
Well, the thing that Bu$h is not talking about is the burning cross, which is the real symbol of racial inequality, and is associated with the KKK, an offshoot of the illuminate.
The Noose always has been a sore subject in my book, but has played a big part in bringing justice in the old West. It has not so much been a symbol of prejudice, as it has been for public display of the execution of notorious criminals of every color and stripe. Especially useful for doing away with criminal leaders who have done crimes against humanity.
Saddam Hussein, the former Iraqi dictator who spent his last years in captivity after his ruthless regime was toppled by the U.S.-led coalition in 2003, was hanged before dawn for crimes committed in a brutal crackdown during his reign.
So George Duhhbya Bu$h, probably, is offended by the sight of the noose, which has been used more than a few times to hang unpopular leaders in history, because it represents justice in a world where nothing else will work.
