Kentucky Man Defends Statue of President Obama Eating Watermelon: ‘He Might Get Hungry’

Just when you thought the racist Obama jokes were finally subsiding, another local yokel comes out of the woodwork with anwatermelon obama inflammatory insult.

This time, a Kentucky man, Danny Hafley, has erected a statue of President Obama eating watermelon. When Hafley was asked why he chose to put watermelon in the statue’s hand, Hafley replied that Obama  “might get hungry standing out here.”

Hafley told a local NBC affiliate that he is only defending his right to free speech:

“The way I look at it, it’s freedom of speech,” said Danny Hafley. “I don’t know how other people will take it.”

Hafley bought the Obama mask on sale after Halloween and put up the display around the time of November’s presidential election.

The mannequin, dressed in a grey suit, clip-on tie and blue-collared shirt, was originally standing in Hafley’s yard but the homeowner decided it would look better near the road.

“That’s my buddy,” Hafley said. “He don’t talk. Don’t make no smart comments. If I had a dollar for everyone who stopped and took a picture of it I’d be a millionaire.”

Some of Hafley’s neighbors do believe that the image will cause problems, even though they themselves don’t have an issue with it.

Hafley says he put watermelon in the Obama statue’s hand because “he might get hungry.” No word yet why he didn’t place a slice of pie (0ne of Obama’s favorite foods) or steak in Obama’s hands, but I think we all know the answer to that.

  1. Folks, let’s break this down. Okay? As descendents of the people who were either ALREADY here and slaughtered en mass or were brought here against their/our will to build the wealth of both the northern AND (especially) the southern states, we KNOW what this Kentucky — birthplace of Lincoln — character and others like him are up to. His desire is to serve his master and kill, steal, and destroy. President Obama would most likely laugh at this bafoonery and find comfort in being declared by default as being perceived by a hater as one of the TRUE descendents mentioned above — all the while he actuallly is NOT! Therefore, the hurt intended by this front lawn clown act is directed at the larger group of the chosen. Our dearly beloved sitting, re-elected POTUS can take comfort in earning his African-American stripes daily by absorbing this type of hate unto himself and in doing so with that big, bright smile of his. God is good.

  2. White people have always associated watermelon with black people. Don't forget fried chicken. (That's is fine). But does that mean if a white person eat thoes thing they are really black or will turn black? Oh my, I don't want them to look like me.

  5. SO! I'M HAVING MY SAY' MR. HAFLEY! ARE YOU ANCESTERS FROM IRELAND" IF SO! THE ENGLISH SAID THEY WERE DRUNKARDS COULD NOT BE TRUSTED'THEIVES&LAZY!

  6. The Kentucky man’s excuse for the use of watermelon is that “He (the President) might get hungry.” Why would the President get hungry? This man’s reasoning might be the result of generations of inbreeding

  7. This statue looks nothing like President Obama. The head is not shaped like the president’s, the face does not look like his, the hairline is different, and the mouth and teeth are wrong

  10. Another racist fool who has to remind everyone that President Obama is Black…

  11. the GOP and it's cronies have open the door for African Americans to be oh so disrespectful to the office of the president of United States. I can't wait to call the president a liar, point my finger in his or her face, dress up a mannequins or put in compromising sexual positions. hopefully I won't have to do this for another 16 years.

  12. One this doesn't look anything like our President. However, I am not mad, because I know they mad. This only fuels my belief he's mad he's not me.

  13. Please do not get it twisted that buffoonery does not represent the majority of Kentucky.. Especially not Louisville…but whoever said something about KY sports must have missed the NCAA championship last year and tell them to watch the U of L game today before they bash us on sports now. Please don't kid yourself, no 1 can hoop like Kentucky & the VILLE boys

  21. President Obama election has been hurting Danny Hafley and other racist friends for the last 4 years. Obama re-election will again hurt Danny Hafley and his racist friends for the next 4 years. I hope they don’t get heart attacks. In contrast I have been enjoying Obama presidency for the last 4 years and I will be enjoying his presidency again for the next 4 years. Case closed.

  22. Wow White People are dumb savages, how they ever enslaved us I'll never know

  24. Ignorant!

  25. In this great country, even a stupid fool has the right to freedom on speech.

    • There is nothing wrong with Mr. Hafley excising his right to free speech, by honoring his President with his likeness displayed in his front yard. He made a good choice of the Watermelon, because the it’s rich in antioxidants, and is said to be good for fighting the action of free radicals in the body. This reduces the risk of various types of cancer and heart diseases.

  26. Wow disrespect all around. Still he is President so whether you like him or not four more years has been bestowed once again. If the statue makes your ego get bigger then you may need to try another hobby to make you feel like the man of the neighborhood..IJS.

    Actually, while White racists have made it a badge of shame, a watermelon should be a badge of pride. Watermelons are Southern African fruits. I grew up eating them and they are some of my fondest family memories.Both Egyptians and Israelites ate watermelons. It has a long honorable history.

  28. The phone number for his auto shop is listed below. Call and tell him he’s a racist fuck

  29. Trash is trash, no matter what some whites do to make them feel big and superior, Barak will still be President Obama, will live forever in history as President no matter what. Trash is still trash lol!

    More evidence of the combination of low intelligence and mental illness.

  31. > They are mad as hell because this black man knocked out 3 white men an 1white.
    woman and he is his president also > So what's next <.

  33. Although there is racist implications, his right of free speech cannot be denied. Unless he leaves in an HOA subdivision no one can ask him to remove it. Wonder what he would say if his black neighbor erected one of Romney eating the crow the FTC is about to serve him?

  34. Black people still believe the Watermelon stereotype in 2012?

  35. What do you expect from the drug capital of the south. The IQ matches the number teeth found in the entire state.

  36. Leave it up to those PINK FACE FOLKS so called white.

  37. Some people still can't get over that Obama is the POTUS…the racists can throw all of the hissy fits and make all the racist insults they want, but GUESS WHAT? Obama is STILL the POTUS! Success is the best revenge…

  38. Must we spend our time acknowledging every idiotic racist comment or action that arises. Seriously, who cares what they think? It is what it is. This country gives all it's citizens the freedom of speech and expression. Obviously we are all not going to agree or even like each other, but life goes on. If there actions, words do not have the power to affect my livelihood, quality of life, next. Life is way too short for this meandering over every racist comment/action.

  39. Y White Folks Act Like They Dont Eat Watermelon Lol

  40. Seriously, if President Obama is going to sign a bill that will allow the government/military to detain people without a fair hearing. I really don't care if people are racist against him. He is doing nothing more than setting up African Americans for the chain gang and shackles (slavery).
