when I saw this story last night, it made me SICK.

Shooting gallery apologises for using Obama as a target

Pennsylvania fairground shooting game used image of black man in a suit wearing presidential seal, clutching ‘health bill’

A carnival game that offered fair-goers the chance to win prizes by shooting a black man has been axed after complaints that the target resembled President Obama.

“I voted for the man. It wasn’t meant to be him,” Irvin Good Jr, the president of Goodtime Amusements, which ran the attraction, told the Morning Call newspaper. “If they took it that way, we apologise.”

The fairground shooting gallery, named “Alien Invasion”, appeared at the Our Lady of Mount Carmel Big Time Fair in Roseto, Pennsylvania, last month, and attracted complaints for using using a lifesize figure of a black man in a suit, wearing a belt buckle labelled “The Prez” and clutching a rolled-up sheaf of papers marked “Health Bill”.

While Irvin Good said “I guess we made an error in judgment and we apologise for that,” other fair-goers were not so sure.

Error in judgement?

Are you kidding?

At a CHURCH FAIR, we have people SHOOTING AT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

These people are not ‘ Christians’. They are evil, mean, vicious pack of racists and they can speak to the Secret Service.

Nobody believes your ridiculous ‘ apology’.
Nobody believes that your intent wasn’t serious.

YOU USED THE PRESIDENT AS TARGET PRACTICE.

At a CHURCH FUNCTION.

In a letter to the editor of the LeHigh Valley Express-Times, a family attending a reunion at the carnival wrote: “We were appalled to find that a shooting game had as its target an unmistakable image of President Obama. One wins a prize by shooting the president on targets placed on his head or heart. Adults and children alike were taking aim at the president.”

CHILDREN were at this function.

They don’t fool me. They don’t begin to fool me.

They are who we thought they were.
