Texas Man Lynches Empty Chair, Says Obama Can “Go To Hell”

“If you don’t like it, don’t come down my street,” the anti-Obama homeowner told Burnt Orange Report.

Texas political blog Burnt Orange Report reports that Bud Johnson, the Austin man who hung this chair from his tree on Wednesday, is a 73-year-old Republican and past “Yard of the Month” honoree from his homeowner’s association.

The chair is believed to be a reference to Clint Eastwood’s RNC speech, in which the iconic actor cast an empty chair as Barack Obama.

Johnson lashed out at blogger Katherine Haenschen when she called him to voice her concerns about the “racist presidential effigy.”

On Thursday, he added an American flag to the display. Neighbors also told the blog that Johnson had a guard out front protecting the chair.
