    'Obama' wears straightjacket, crowd goes insane

    Company orders 'diversity training' for hundreds of employees

    It’s hard to decide which is scarier: a grinning “Barack Obama” wearing a straightjacket or the reaction to his appearance at one company’s annual Halloween costume party.

    An employee of Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Hopkinsville, Ky., must have thought he had the costume contest all sewn up when he sauntered into the party wearing an Obama mask and a straightjacket.

    And he probably couldn’t believe his luck when he and his two pals actually won the third-place trophy for their Halloween skit “VIP Security,” according to local TV station WZTV.

    However, soon after their shining moment, a snafu erupted over their Obama schtick.

    “I think it is very, very offensive,” C.E. Timberlake, a local pastor, told the TV station. “And really, that shouldn’t have happened.”

    Company officials weren’t impressed either after a photograph of the costumed trio began circulating around the office.

    Is this the first President in our history that is off limits when it comes to jokes and ridicule?

    Why?

    Because one company didn't like what their employees did?

    Or did NSA agents turn up and take him away, torture him, arrest his entire family and eventually have him executed (Like what would happen in a country that really had no freedom of expression).

    Far right wingers like yourself can never seem to get enough of feeling victimized by something or other.

    Um, yea. We were not the ones having a cow about it. Those employees now must go through mandatory "sensitivity" training. I dont remember anyone having a cow when Point Break came out and people were dressed like presidents, some still alive, robbing banks.
    Oh yea, they were white.

    White guilt is about the only thing blacks in America have going for them--well maybe white teenagers who act black as to rebel until they have their own bills to pay and say to hell with saggy pants. If I were a black person, I would leave the US they are so horrible.

    I agree that it seems stupid to do that. But, this is the company's doing, not the government's. The First Amendment only applies to laws and the government, but a private business can decide that they don't want political speech if they don't want it. From the "source"(WND, really?):

    The company also admonished employees about wearing costumes “with political, religious, ethnic or gender-based overtones.”
    Which seems as if they just don't like that sort of thing going on.

    Were the people in question jailed or something? No? Didn't think so.

    The idea that Obama is "off limits to jokes and ridicule" is asinine. Like, weapons-grade crazy talk.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    It's not "mandatory," they can always quit! Free market, baby!
