I wonder why the libs were not apoplectic and "triggered" when all the libs were hanging Sarah Palin in effigy? Did not that noose and a body hanging from a chimney disturb them then???


I wonder if they were disturbed when the lib "comedian" had displayed a beheaded Trump?


Libs are so two faced hippocrites.

I think it should be investigated though, as a potential safety hazard. I can see how if someone left a noose on their doorstep, that would be threatening. But this was not intended as a threat.
does not matter if there was intent. Only what is perceived. Remember these:

Who could forget the targeting of a black student with shoe nooses? It just never gets old.

what delicate flowers, sure to be looking up an ambulance-chasing lawyer as we speak so they can be reimbursed for their pain and suffering.
Wow. I hope they never go to a farm, rodeo or ranch. I'm sure they will mistake a simple lasso as some kind of noose.

I can't deal with these dramatic people anymore. Traumatized? Horrifying? COME. ON! Enough of this!

This, I understand:

“It was rage to see something like that,” Lyonni Flowers added.
Rage is understandable. "Traumatized" is not the same thing, and I'm so sick and fricken tired of people overusing the word.

The two women asked for a manager at the store on Millers Road in Wilmington, though they say it took some time for him to come.
Because it's the Home Depot! That happens to everyone! While I like that the store almost always has what I need, I hate going there when I don't know exactly what it is that I need and know I need to find some help - because it takes forever to find help. That had nothing to do with who they were, it had everything to do with it being the fricken Home Depot where it happens to everyone.

Be angry? By all means, but stop this nonsense of "it was so traumatizing" - when you have NO DAMN CLUE what "traumatizing" actually is.

You can't stop idiots from being afraid of everything.... Why the media keeps listening to them shows an agenda...

The noose did not appear to be displayed in any threatening manner.......

They never do, but let's not let that stop the hysteria and histrionics.
