Today, Burnt Orange Report received a photo, reproduced below the jump, of an empty chair "lynched" from a tree in a Republican's yard. One can easily interpret the display to represent a racially motivated act of violence against the President.
This was in front of a home in Northwest Austin, usually thought of as a liberal enclave in big red Texas. Now, one could easily argue "it's just a chair, what's the big deal? That's not racist!"
Clint Eastwood must be so proud. In the time since the post went up last night, the homeowner added an American flag to the chair, and someone was sitting in the yard, guarding the lynched chair.
