How is nailing a chair to a tree the same as lynching something representing a black man?

"That person there is the racist," Ken David said of those responsible for nailing the branded chair on his property. "I never was a racist and I never intended to be a racist. The only thing I'm for is liberty and freedom."

Man, "you're racist for noticing my racism" has jumped the shark

"That person there is the racist," Ken David said of those responsible for nailing the branded chair on his property. "I never was a racist and I never intended to be a racist. The only thing I'm for is liberty and freedom."

A majority of the Davids' lawn chair display remains intact one day after the election with a suspended lawn chair near their house and another one - which replaced a chair that was stolen last month - hanging closer to the street. The latter chair now has a drying potted plant sitting in it as a sign of "distress," Ken David said.



It's like a 4 year old read a book on literary symbolism.

"The signs will stay up and they might be up for four more years - if they last that long," he said.

Christ I would hate to be this guy's neighbors.

Really, if I held up a banner that said "Obama Sucks" and used a rope to hoist it from treebranch to treebranch, would I be called a racist?

It was nailed to the driveway, not to the tree. Which makes subby fail even harder.
 
2012-11-08 07:44:45 PM  
Whoops, guess Nadie's fail, not subbys. Just noticed subby got it right, although lord knows how nailing a chair to the ground to make it harder to throw away is as racist as lynching an effigy of a black president.

Still, nailing his dumbass display to his driveway is funny. I don't think vandalism is OK but it is just a lawnchair. It was probably one of his neighbors sick of looking at his tacky display of stupidity.

We need to put this guy next to that vicious coont in Michigan that made fun of the dying child. Those two living next door to each other would be a laugh riot.

Not in my neighborhood. He'll, they'd probably get along great.

I imagine there is a fundamental difference between somebody putting something in their own yard, as opposed to having other people put things there.

I'm not going to take a principled stand on whether hanging the empty chairs indicates racism.

I will take a principled stand on this, however: His green Crocs indicate he is an idiot.

In 1998, my boss was a nice Jewish woman with a nice house in a gated neighborhood.

In late November, her neighbors started harassing her about her 1997 lack of Christmas decorations.

In mid December, while she was at work, they dug a two foot hole with three deep post-holes (like a lego), filled it with concrete, and sunk a nativity scene into it.

She called the cops, they figured out who did it, and arrested the vandals.

Nailing the chair to his driveway is the same kind of dickish, but on a smaller scale. It doesn't matter how justified you think you are, you're not.

At this point, I'm for doing all the gloating possible.

Maybe nailing a chair to a tree is meant to signify Invisible Jesus.

Or maybe Jesus was in the chair, but he has risen!

The Lakeshore Ethnic Diversity Alliance in Ottawa County says the lawn chairs are racially insensitive as they are hoisted from a rope, invoking implications of a lynching.

*eyeroll*
 
2012-11-08 09:32:15 PM  
So he was hoisted on his own petard?
 
2012-11-08 09:33:32 PM  
Hey, free chair!
 
2012-11-08 09:35:58 PM  
PSH! ITS NOT RACIST! JESUS WAS WHITE!
 
2012-11-08 09:36:44 PM  
The guy is an idiot but it's hardly a racist statement to hang a chair in your yard.

Sounds like another republitard got hoisted by his own petard, in his own yard.

suck it neocon..long and deep
 
2012-11-08 09:38:31 PM  
If they want to put their money where their mouth is they should just hang themselves on their lawn, that will get some attention.

I don't generally condone vandalism but I do condone morons being mocked and villified. It's not like they trashed his car or broke his windows. This is less harmful a good TPing.
 
2012-11-08 09:41:43 PM  
I laughed, but I felt legitimately bad about it afterwards.

I'm really not outraged by his display, he just seems like an idiot, but I'll answer this.

No. Banners are designed to be held up with ropes. There's no symbolism there. If you take an object and then say "this object represents Obama" then hang it from a tree don't be surprised when people link it to a lynching. Whether it was his intention or not, It's not a long bow to draw and he really should know better.
 
2012-11-08 09:44:24 PM  
Want to make a statement? Put a chair with a sign saying" four more years" on your own property.

/and Keep Your Grubby Dick Skinners Off Other People's shiat.
