Birther Oklahoma Man Erects Tombstone With Obama’s Name On It As Halloween Display
As Oklahoma family has been putting up a tombstone with President Obama’s name on it for three years. One neighbor who recently moved into the area said, “I was absolutely offended.”
“He is the president of the United States and it actually is about respect,” Ms. Phillips said. “It’s a total respect thing because this person is still alive.”
[su_center_ad]Dwayne Dockens said, he’s sorry if people took it the wrong way but he has no plans on taking the tombstone down, according to KOCO.com.
“I certainly didn’t mean to offend anybody or cause any problems. Don’t know that I would take it down,” he said.
Dockens claims the tombstone which reads, “Obama ?” is harmless.
“[My family and I] made them a few years ago back when it was a big deal, questions up about [Obama’s] birth certificate,” Dockens said. “And we made all these ourselves so just thought it was kind of humorous and, you know, went ahead and put him in there as well.”
Dockens said erecting the decorations with his family brings them cheer.
But, Phillips said she is worried about the message the tombstone sends to children.
