Hillary Takes A Hit! A Water Balloon To The Face In A Small Town Iowa Parade

The Arcadia, Iowa Fire Department held a 100th Anniversary Parade. It’s your basic Red, White, and Blue Americana kind of thing.

Kids ate watermelon and sweet corn. People laughed and enjoyed a day without work and perhaps sipped an adult beverage in an aluminum can. American flags adorned almost every float. Shiny fire trucks proudly displayed their steadfast protection. Peace and happiness filled the hearts of everyone present.

It was the kind of thing that gives you hope that decent America still exists.

Then this.

A Hillary For Prison float? Half the audience groaned and the other half chuckled….but my oh my, that’s just the half of it…all the kids were not handed candy…they were given ammo in the form of water balloons and told to throw them at, you guessed it…Hillary!

The local paper, The Carroll Daily Times Herald reported:

It was a typical summer celebration in small-town Iowa. The sun was shining on children carrying bags full of candy as the Arcadia Fire Department was celebrating its 100th anniversary on Saturday with a parade, a party in the park and a big water fight that would serve as the grand finale.

A young blond boy, no more than 8 years old, ran out into the street near the intersection of West Center and South Gault streets because one float was handing out water balloons. The child grabbed his balloon, took aim and did his best Nolan Ryan impression as he fired the balloon at a man dressed in an orange jumpsuit and Hillary Clinton mask while standing on a platform inside bars, fencing and barbed wire above a “Hillary For Prison” sign tacked onto the side.

Bull’s eye.

The prideful smile of a job well done was written all over the boy’s face.

You gotta love small towns. They represent the heartbeat of America. This is the kind of thing to really give you hope for America’s future.

Of course, the local Democrats weren’t too happy!

Some in the crowd were laughing and cheering as the float rolled by, but others could be heard moaning and grumbling that it was “over the top” or “a bit too much.”

Tim Tracy, chairman of the Carroll County Democrats, said demonstrations like this don’t help things in an already charged political climate.

“The Carroll County Democrats participated in the Arcadia celebration in an appropriate and dignified manner,” Tracy said. “We saw a lot of children along the parade route. Children aren’t politically savvy. It’s sad to imagine that some of them may have been wondering why they were being mean to that lady and throwing things at her.”

Another woman, who wished to remain anonymous for fear of repercussions at work, said the whole thing just made her feel sad.

“I’m glad my grandkids weren’t there to see it,” she said. “Here we have what could be the first woman president in our history — and to treat her like that — I thought was disrespectful to her and disrespectful to women.”

Boo Hoo! Great idea for a great float. Can’t people have fun anymore without it being an insult to women or damaging to children. The kids looked to be having a pretty good time and reportedly threw more than 400 water balloons at Hillary!

“It was my idea,” Kyle Julin of Manilla said. “Pretty much me and Josh (Reetz). It took us about a day-and-a-half to build.”

Julin said he, Reetz and Adam Corky (Clinton impersonator) are not affiliated with any official political organization. Julin said he’s an independent and as of March 2014 Reetz was a registered Democrat.

Julin said the crew had been throwing around the idea of entering the parade for awhile.

“Probably a month ago we joked around about it, and at the beginning of last week we decided to do it,” Julin said. We started on it Wednesday night.”

If this is any inclination about the small town support for Hillary…she might want to start writing that concession speech.
