The political system in America, by and large, works pretty good. Sure, there are occasionally disagreements between various political factions, but most of the time things don’t go past the argument stage. There are occasional issues with Donald Trump’s more ardent supporters, but even those pale in comparison to what goes in in some other places in the world. There’s not real political violence here, just the occasional depictions of it in entertainment. A parade float in Indiana depicted Hillary Clinton being executed in an electric chair with Donald Trump pulling the switch.
The float was in a parade sponsored by the Aurora Lions Club. The club, for their part say that they didn’t have any input into the parade floats, nor did they screen any of the parade entries. The city of Aurora itself has gone out of its way to distance themselves from the content, saying that it doesn’t reflect the values of any of townsfolk. However, the float’s creator says that the placement of the politicians is clearly coincidental, and not some sort of artsy political statement.
“I could have taken and put Donald Trump in that float and had Hillary pull the handle,” said the float’s creator, Frank Linkemeyer. “Nevertheless, I would have never pleased everybody. It definitely was all for laughter.”
