GOP Gone Wild: Racist Texan Lynches 'Invisible' Obama Chair

Clint Eastwood sent out his dog whistle to the GOP wing-nuts in the nation during the Republican National Convention when he had his stage conversation with an empty chair that supposedly had an invisible President Obama sitting in it. Texas Republican Bud Johnson heard the dog whistle and took the skit to a disgusting level, by lynching an invisible Obama in a chair.

Any American recognizes that lynching is a direct reference to the racial strife in this nation when African Americans were lynched (primarily in the Southern states) by racist whites. 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. [SOURCE]
I don’t really give a damn whether it disturbs you or not,” Johnson said. “You can take [your concerns] and go straight to hell and take Obama with you. I don’t give a shit. If you don’t like it, don’t come down my street.”
I guess that our President must be getting used to the racist backlash to his presidency. 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.

Laugh, cry, get mad, wonder WTF - all of that. Does everyone think they are living in a movie that has no consequences. Hate is hate and thanks for calling him out!

As always, the racism train is never late in this country.

Ned / Reggie - Someone needs to tell Bud the following, "Obama won. Again. Get Over It. Again."
