We don't know the national origin of the chair. It probably did not come from Africa. The White House claims it was manufactured in Hawaii, but there are no ownership details to establish that. Some speculate that it's actually a Manchurian chair from China.
When the Hope and Change Revolution is finally complete, Mitt Romney is in a reeducation camp and all Americans are obligated to pay double for their mandatory daily ration of broccoli, then the First Amendment of the Constitution will read, "Thou shalt make no graven images of Obama as they are all considered racist."
Take poor Bud Johnson, America's latest racist sensation in the hit liberal game show, "Everything is Racist Now, Especially You."
A Texas man who hung a chair from a tree on his front lawn — in an apparent rebuff of President Obama and nod to Clint Eastwood — has taken down the display after offended locals associated it with the lynching of blacks.
Austin homeowner Bud Johnson, 73, said he removed the stupefying sight Thursday because of a misconception. “I decided to make the change because some people are stupid,” Johnson told an Austin American-Statesman columnist.
There's a difference between stupid and deliberately obtuse. Also see, "Making stuff up".
Some of you ignorant racists will probably wonder how one goes about lynching a chair. After contacting several Chairologists, we learned that chairs do not have spinal columns or lungs and cannot be lynched. But after consulting several Critical Race Theorists, we learned that all the Chairologists were guilty of human privilege for denying the inherent biological properties of chairs, especially brown chairs.
Area resident Robert Stephenson told CBS affiliate KEYE TV the display appears “pretty racist” and there’s “no way you can take that the wrong way.”
How could you take an empty chair the wrong way? It's not possible. It's the most blatantly racist thing since peanut butter and jelly or calling Obama a socialist.
The real problem here is the color of the chair. Offhand the chair appears to be metallic gray, rather than black or brown, but this may have been Bud Johnson's fiendishly racist way of disguising the true race of the chair.
Also we don't know the national origin of the chair. It probably did not come from Africa. The White House claims it was manufactured in Hawaii, but there are no ownership details to establish that. Some speculate that it's actually a Manchurian chair from China.
“No, it has no other meaning!” Bud Johnson told KEYE, explaining why he hung the folding chair and a small American flag from the tree. “It’s not a lynch. ... It’s the only place I had to put the goddamn thing!” he said.
Sure Johnson claims he had no other place to put the chair, but did he consider donating it to the Obama reelection campaign as reparations for the slavery that Obama's white ancestors practiced on Michelle Obama's black ancestors?
That would be a meaningful disavowal of his white privilege in thinking that he can hang things up without triggering memories of lynchings and water hoses and slave ships and merit based hiring practices.
Local county Dems are condemning the display as a “hateful act.”
“I’m sure he’ll argue that it’s freedom of expression ... but to me what he did does not enlighten me to his side at all,” Andy Brown, chairman of the Travis County Democratic Party, told the Daily News. “It says nothing on the issues.”
I don't know about Andy, but it says a lot to me. It says that we live in a country where a man can't hang a chair in front of his own house without the police showing up and the media accusing him of racism.
That says a lot about the issues right there.
Bud Johnson said,"No, it has no other meaning. I'm not a racist. I don't dislike any race."
Could there be a more racist statement than that? He might as well lynch a whole dining room set next or maybe a sofa.
Meanwhile Burnt Orange, the local lefty blog that broke the story is hot on the trail of a very racist man walking a Portuguese water dog on a leash in what is already being called a hateful lynching that brings back the worst days of the Civil Rights Movement.
