On the online version of NBC I just read an article about two incidents that (probably) suggest lynching the president. One was an empty folding chair with small American flag attached to it hanging from a tree by a rope in front of a man's house. The second was an empty chair hanging from a tree by a park near where Obama had campaigned in July.This chaired had a NOBOMA sign attached to it.
It is believed the "empty chair" idea comes from Clint Eastwood's speech at the RNC, where he used an empty folding chair and proceeded to "scold" it as if talking to the president.
Is this something that we (collectively) should be appauled by and concerned about, possibly worsening the race war or a beginning to the second coming of the KKK (which I realize has never actually been dismantled but it is no longer an acceptable practice) or is it something we should just let roll off our backs and ignore because it was only 2 individual incidents, therefore nothing to be overly concerned about?
