    Real America, ladies and gentlemen.

  • SecretMuslin

    i hate this country. I would like a new one now please.

    • PresBeeblebrox

      I can haz Canada nao plaes?

      • Negropolis

        Preferably Real Canada, though. Canada Francais is so lame.

  • DashboardBuddha

    The primer colored Monte Carlo in the background is a nice touch.

  • cymchikster

    I call salt shaker! Dibs! Dibs!

  • DashboardBuddha

    ""Said they want to shake my hand. They said they're glad to see a little white pride is still left in this country"

    You miserable shitheel…you gutless fucktard. White pride? Why don't you do something useful with your life…invent something that will improve the lives of everyone? Maybe get a job? Hell…at the very least, kill yourself.

    • JustPixelz

      Clearly, the man gave a lot of thought to how to use his freedom of expression to show white pride. And this is the best he could come up with. Plus fly the Confederate flag and wear his CSA cap.

      But … it is protected speech. Mr Hoskins can get the ACLU to represent him. I'm sure he's a longtime admirer of their work and will welcome the support.

      • glamourdammerung

        I did not see this when I wrote my post, but I find it amusing that someone else came to the same conclusion. Though maybe this yokel is unaware of who Timmie McVeigh was.

    • PresBeeblebrox

      That's whut we call "Whaat Praad" in them thar Suthren parts.

      Srsly, when are they going to say "fuck it" down there and just cold storm Camp Lejeune to start a Second Civil War?

      • BarryOPotter

        Don't lull (lulz?) yourself into a false sense of security. It's ah-coming! I read about in The Onion:

      • Steverino247

        When they lose fifty pounds and find their ammo in the folds of their fat asses.

      • Carcuntz_R_Us

        Pahd'n mah Sauthanese:

        Mahzoorey ain't paht uv thuh Sauth, y'all! It's nawth uv thuh Mazoorey Comproemize, and we don't wownem! Buncha dayum cahpetbaggahs!

        Please take me NOW, blue states! PLEEEEEZE!

  • petehammer

    The reporter acts like "white pride" and "racist" are two separate things. That Venn Diagram is just one big circle.

    F the south.

    (Rides off on four wheeler)

    • JustPixelz

      Rational people are able to be proud of their ethnic heritage without demeaning others. Irish, Chinese, Jewish, Italian … those "prides" co-exist with acceptance and respect for others.

      For the non-rational people, it's a different story. They have only their guns and bible to cling to. Also their Confederate flag. And off-roader 4×4. And pudding cup beard.

      • glamourdammerung

        Sorry, I missed the point of your post. I was just finishing putting the 'Angel of Death murdering all the firstborn Egyptian children' scene up in the front yard.

        • Sparky_McGruff

          I just finished putting the "Who Would Jesus Lynch" sticker on my car. And polishing the trucknutz.

      • HistoriCat

        "I have nothing going for me but pride in my whiteness. That's all I got to live for 'cept the time daddy said I was the best kisser in the 4th grade but that was a long time ago."

    • Failure_Artist

      The news media has to pretend there is ambiguity even in the most clear cut of situations, otherwise it's bias.

    • snoopyfan2010

      Seriously, are they saying that the only thing white people have to be proud of is a history of hate? *sigh*

  • fuflans

    you just know he couldn't figure out how to get a round kkk ghost body.

  • http://wonkette.com Dr_pangloss

    O'Reily starts segment on his show "War on Halloween" in three two… "Goverment Pinheads crush a real American patriotic Halloween Display. Why won't the Pinheads at the ACLU step in for this guy?".

    At times like this I like to recall Maggie Simpson turning into an alien and Dr. Hibbert's solution: "Fire! And lots of it!"

    Idiot racist offered commentator job on Fox in 3…2…1…

  • chascates

    Nothing like a lynching to illustrate the power of the white man.

    I mean the power of the ignorance of the white man.

    • Naked_Bunny

      Lynching seems to be the proudest thing these guys can ever think of.

      I think it's intensely stupid to be proud of accidents of history like your race, your sex, your country of birth, etc. — stuff that happened without any effort on your part — but if you must express pride, can you at least try to do so in a positive manner? There's plenty of cool things white people have done that don't involve murder.

      • HistoriCat

        Yeah but those white people were smart. Or talented. Or took pride in their workmanship, etc.

  • DCHatesMe

    KKK ghost looks like a muslin burqa minaret. White pride fail.

  • Groupshrug

    Faux News Just signed him for a show with Juan Williams

  • Gopherit

    What kind of teabagger backs down when a local cop asks him to take down his insanely racist and riot-inciting "Halloween display"? This is the pussification of Murika.

  • JMPEsq

    Kevin Stowell: "Haha I cant believe you Wankette morans think this is racist when it's just a festive display, besides the lynched guy probably looked at a white woman and would've deserved it"

  • PublicLuxury

    One time I was at a conference the ballroom was filled with other professionals. People were staring at me. Some had BIG smiles others were snickering. I looked behind me and then realized I was the joke. I looked and my shirt was unbuttoned. I was very embarrassed and I wanted to leave with my head hung in shame. This experience is not even 1/4 of the shame I feel when a person in MY country does something like this. I'm embarrassed that a portion of the population owned another, hurt them, hung them, beat them…

    I prefer my breasts hanging out for the entire world to see…

    • Naked_Bunny

      We prefer that, too, PL.

    • HistoriCat

      Pics or … oh, never mind.

  • ttommyunger

    White Pride? Cornholers like this actually make me ashamed of being white. Fuck!

    • ttommyunger

      …and being a Missouri Boy.

    • CapnFatback

      Hoskins truly showed White Pride by flaunting the fact that, being white, he can afford a 4-wheel ATV to haul his "freedom of expression" the twenty-five feet it takes to get to the garage.

  • PresBeeblebrox

    Needs moar hate.

  • Giveusabob

    As a MO resident, I do have to admit to getting the warm fuzzies, when seeing in the video that all of this douchebag's neighbors actually sounded like reasonable human beings, who did not condone this behavior.

  • CapnFatback

    I'm wondering how many years these have been up without someone raising a stink. Hoskins says he erects the display "every year," and judging by the bandanna and red/black top, he tapped Michael Jackson's "Beat It" video for a model for the lynched man.

  • second_gen

    Ya'all need to come to Michigan to see a REAL Halloween display!

    • Negropolis

      Where is that in Michigan? I MUST get a picture of, of…it.

      • Giveusabob

        My guess would be somewhere near Reading, MI.

        They also have crazy Xmas light displays too, as witnessed via my primary redneck half of the family (the secondary half being from Texas).

        • Negropolis

          How do you just guess something like that?

          • BarryOPotter

            Inductive reasoning?

  • Extemporanus


    • AddHomonym


  • transfatz

    Scratch one of these guys and you will find a drawer full of penis pumps and a very unfaithful wife. Just check the back pages of "Popular Ammo" or "Bear Attack" magazine and you'll see what I mean.

  • Thedongsofwar


  • Come here a minute

    The old work clothes are undoubtedly too small now.

  • iburl

    A cotton-pickin' racist.

  • bbqboy

    Are there any Confederate Laws about flying Tattered Flags?
    That thing is an embarrassment to General Lee.
    And Daisy Duke isn't too happy either.

  • Sgt_Biyatch

    Oh…now I get it…that racist redneck bastard! At first I thought the KKK pyramid monster was lynching a Chinese food container dressed in chinos and a windbreaker. Because, if I was ever attacked by such a thing, I would probably lynch it, too.

  • Redhead

    Well thank goodness someone's standing up for those poor oppressed white men. I mean, the cops are OBVIOUSLY targetting them with all their meth busts.

  • OkieDokieDog

    This is offensive.

    This too: also is offensive – the talking Walmart ad at the top of the page telling me congratulations!!! I've just won a… whatever. Scroll back up to see. Oh "gift card".

    I'm currently pissed off at WalMart and have added them to my FUCK YOU, I don't need your made in China crap, list.

    • obiwanacracker

      And in a related story, there's something about the adware on the new and improved Wonkette site that is constipating my poor computer(s). By the time I view all comments on any particular article we slow to a crawl. I loves me some Wonkette, but…

      • Lefty_Lucy

        I thought it was just me!!!!! WTF is up with that?? I blame it on "gravatar", whatever that is. It's forever making me wait for it to shovel crap onto my computer before finally jamming the browser.

  • osamabindrinkin

    Can we get confirmation that the costume ball's back on, pretty-please?!

  • aguacatero

    Chacun a son goober.

  • BarackMyWorld

    I like how the local station calls its broadcast "Heartland News," as if every other local channel in the area is broadcast from the east coast.

    Sorry, every other comment I could think of had already been made.
