by Jack Stuef

Happy Halloween, America! So what are you going to come as to our blog costume party next week (which is back ON), Wonketteers? The lynched figure wearing a white yokel’s old work clothes or the giant KKK salt shaker? Both are obvious winners. [Raw Story via Wonkette operative "Monsieur Grumpe"]

Real America, ladies and gentlemen.

SecretMuslin October 21, 2010 at 7:24 pm

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

PresBeeblebrox October 21, 2010 at 10:10 pm

I can haz Canada nao plaes?

Negropolis October 22, 2010 at 2:50 am

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

DashboardBuddha October 21, 2010 at 7:25 pm

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

cymchikster October 21, 2010 at 7:26 pm

I call salt shaker! Dibs! Dibs!

DashboardBuddha October 21, 2010 at 7:27 pm

""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 October 21, 2010 at 7:46 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 8:04 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 10:12 pm

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 October 22, 2010 at 9:55 am

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

Steverino247 October 22, 2010 at 11:45 am

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

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 October 21, 2010 at 7:29 pm

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

F the south.

JustPixelz October 21, 2010 at 7:54 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 7:57 pm

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 October 22, 2010 at 1:54 am

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

HistoriCat October 21, 2010 at 10:28 pm

"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 October 21, 2010 at 11:04 pm

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

snoopyfan2010 October 22, 2010 at 7:13 pm

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

fuflans October 21, 2010 at 7:37 pm

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

Dr_pangloss October 21, 2010 at 7:39 pm

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?".

JustPixelz October 21, 2010 at 8:29 pm


imissopus October 21, 2010 at 8:10 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 8:12 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 9:07 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 10:30 pm

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

DCHatesMe October 21, 2010 at 8:24 pm

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

Groupshrug October 21, 2010 at 8:30 pm

Faux News Just signed him for a show with Juan Williams

Gopherit October 21, 2010 at 8:32 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 8:35 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 9:27 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 9:45 pm

We prefer that, too, PL.

HistoriCat October 21, 2010 at 10:32 pm

Pics or … oh, never mind.

ttommyunger October 21, 2010 at 9:29 pm

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

ttommyunger October 21, 2010 at 9:30 pm

…and being a Missouri Boy.

CapnFatback October 21, 2010 at 10:35 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 10:13 pm

Needs moar hate.

Giveusabob October 21, 2010 at 10:19 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 10:37 pm

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 October 21, 2010 at 10:52 pm

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

Negropolis October 22, 2010 at 2:55 am

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

Giveusabob October 22, 2010 at 4:13 am

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 October 22, 2010 at 4:31 am

How do you just guess something like that?

BarryOPotter October 22, 2010 at 10:24 am

Inductive reasoning?

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 October 22, 2010 at 7:24 am


Come here a minute October 22, 2010 at 7:59 am

The old work clothes are undoubtedly too small now.

iburl October 22, 2010 at 8:07 am

A cotton-pickin' racist.

bbqboy October 22, 2010 at 8:14 am

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 October 22, 2010 at 8:45 am

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 October 22, 2010 at 10:20 am

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 October 22, 2010 at 11:38 am

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 October 23, 2010 at 5:41 pm

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 October 25, 2010 at 9:36 am

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 October 22, 2010 at 7:30 pm

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

aguacatero October 22, 2010 at 8:39 pm

Chacun a son goober.

BarackMyWorld October 23, 2010 at 4:41 pm

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.
