Texas Republican Lynches Empty Chair of Obama
Remember the Clint Eastwood fiasco at the GOP convention? Where Eastwood had an on stage conversation with an empty chair that supposedly had an invisible President Obama sitting in it? Well, a Texas Republican has taken that skit a step further, by lynching an invisible Obama in a chair.
In the despicably sick display, homeowner Bud Johnson has a “lynched” empty chair on display in his front yard to depict President Obama.
When asked about his front yard display, Johnson was unapologetic.
“I don’t really give a d**n whether it disturbs you or not,” Johnson told Burnt Orange Report. “You can take [your concerns] and go straight to h**l and take Obama with you. I don’t give a s**t. If you don’t like it, don’t come down my street.”
Lynchings, executions carried out by hanging, usually by white mobs, were used to terrorize African-Americans after the Civil War.
President Obama has faced racist backlash to his presidency since taking office. At a GOP Convention in Montana, birthers put on a nasty display to demonstrate their disdain for President Obama by setting up an outhouse labeled “Obama’s Presidential Library”.
A photo of an anti-Obama bumper sticker, labelled “Don’t Re-Nig In 2012,” above smaller print that read, “Stop repeat offenders. Don’t re-elect Obama!” went viral in March.
In addition, President Obama has also been referenced as a tar baby and un-American, which many consider code speak for “not one of us” because he’s black.
