Podcast Play Button

Bill Skuby of Skuby & Co. Lifestyle Clothing never expected the response to a window display he placed in his New Jersey store’s window. After all, he had placed similar displays in the same window. But this one, featuring Barack Obama as a witch doctor, was meant to poke fun at ObamaCare. A resident of the town, Spring Lake, stirred the pot, and before long Skuby was fielding thousands of calls and emails, some labeling him a racist, and some even threatening his life. Bill explains how this all happened in this lively interview (24:52).

Dave Gahary, a former submariner in the U.S. Navy, is the host of AFP’s “Underground Interview” series.
