Obama Monument Toppled in Georgia

by at . Comments

Police in Georgia are investigating the toppling of a monument dedicated to one of Michelle Obama's relatives, which was knocked over outside Atlanta.

Monument to Relative

A stone monument to Michelle Obama's great-great-great-grandmother, Melvinia Shields, was pushed over and will need to be inspected for cracks.

Officials say that Shields was born into slavery in the mid-1800s and later settled in Rex, Ga., about 15 miles southeast of downtown Atlanta.

The monument was installed a year ago as a celebration and recognition of Shields' connection to the First Lady and the White House.

It wasn't immediately clear when the monument was toppled, or who did it, or why they did it... but you can draw your own conclusions in that regard.

Yes- let's draw our own conclusions! Was it the IRS? MAYBE a Gay rights activist? A Fast N Furious survivor? Zimmerman? How about a Fox News journalist? I mean since we are drawing our own conclusions and all. Could it have been an OBAMADONTCARE patient? Maybe it was someone who didn't get a free cell phone. Whoever it was-this is most assuredly HUGE news. Yeah- with scandals coming out daily- TEA PARTY TARGETING- Libya coverup- THE GOVERNMENT taking over Verizon- why in the Hell would anyone want to write about that simple stuff! Not when you got a story like this that can feed the already simmering racial fire.
