Raaaaacist Furniture

Via Drudge:

A Northwest Austin homeowner, who hung a chair from a tree meant to symbolize President Obama, has taken it down.
The political blog first talked about the display in the Spicewood Estates area Wednesday night.
The fold-up chair, with an American flag attached to it, was hung from a tree in front of Bud Johnson’s home and some neighbors complained that it was racist.

I may require some brief fun with a chair, the tree in front of my house, and a camera. Antagonizing people is uncool. But so is this Orwellian noise that even your furniture could be raaaaacist.

    Does this mean the left concedes that Obama is an empty chair?
