Link .. say what 



TEXAN LYNCHES INVISIBLE OBAMA | Burnt Orange Report published a picture of a chair hanging from a tree in front of a house in Austin, Texas. In a dark twist on Clint Eastwood’s empty chair meme, it appears the resident, Bud Johnson, lynched the chair as an effigy of President Obama. When asked about the unnerving racist display, Johnson, a Republican, responded, “I don’t really give a damn whether it disturbs you or not. You can take [your concerns] and go straight to hell and take Obama with you. I don’t give a garbage. If you don’t like it, don’t come down my street.” Another chair was lynched last week in Virginia.

UPDATE

Apparently to clear up any doubt that the lynching is an intentional political statement, the chair now sports an American flag.

What a dumbass.  This guy is under a microscope right now.  The Secret Service will be paying him a visit, IRS audits, and all kinds of other Federal heat will be coming his way.

I'm getting sick of these people around the country and the world hanging/burning effigies of our Prez. Why can't it be as peaceful as it was back when Bush was Prez.

Not that surprising - that's generally the kind of attitude some hard rightwingers can go to once they can't look at or defend the facts or a guy like Mittens

Black Panthers (Hate Group) threatens to kill whites because of the Zimmerman-Martin debacle and nary an eyebrow is raised.

 

Not sure, but the chair, like Obama’s birth certificate, was empty.

Right because Granny was just OUTRAGED, outraged I tell you the times that George Bush was hung in effigy. Obviously dl was asleep at the wheel, but granny was leading protests and demanding action.

Or maybe she was drinking her prune cocktail and laughing, like a hypocritical ditty.

Are the states that use hanging as an execution method RACIST??

Get a friggin life, they lynched many, many in the wild west.
a noose is not racist..only in the eyes of people looking to stir up garbage, and keep the hate going. stop looking at the world through a racist peephole.
If it were not for the race card, you feeble minded people would not have anything to talk about.
take a look at other countries if you really want to see racism.
