Obamas’ Secret Service Raid Museum And Remove Offensive Painting Of “Lynching Obama” Empty Chair!
Shown below is the deeply OFFENSIVE painting, done by a well known artist, and until yesterday was hanging in the Fenimore Art Museum at Cooperstown New York. This painting shows a chair hanging in a tree, and prompted complaints over concerns about the message the artwork seemed to send.
The SS (that’s the Secret Service to you ) paid an urgent visit to the museum to investigate the complaints that the artwork on display depicted the indisputable desire to see President Obama lynched, and had other racially insensitive implications as well.
The painting has since been removed, and the artist, although insisting that he meant no harm and was “just eastwooding” has agreed to destroy the artwork rather than risk offending the sensibilities of the President and his adoring public.
The Fenimore Art Museum will not be held accountable.
Now for the real story – because it’s really quite as bad. Oh, and I don’t have to mention that all the stuff up above was satire do I? Once you read this though, you will wonder how much longer until my little lead-in becomes reality.
Va. man: No lynching connotations to
strung-up ‘Nobama’ chair

A chair with an anti-Obama slogan hangs from a tree in Centreville, Va.
A Centreville man who hung an empty chair from a tree in his backyard with a sign reading “Nobama” attached to it denies that it was meant to represent any inference to lynching or had any racist connotations, though he did manage to “get on the radar” of the Secret Service.
Doug Burger said he was “Eastwooding,” according to local Washington news outlet WJLA.
“I loved Clint Eastwood’s speech” at the Republican nominating convention, he said.
And another snip:
Mr. Burger said that people always steal his political signs, so he thought he’d at least make them work to take it away this time, and that he failed to see what all the fuss is about.
“I am not a racist in any fashion,” he said. “I know how to build a noose, really. If I wanted to make a noose, I could do that. I did not. I had no intention for that to occur.”
He has taken the chair down from the tree, but said he felt the whole hubbub was “really an attack on free speech.”
It appears that this was not an isolated incident – oh noes!

In Austin, Texas, a homeowner hung an empty folding chair from a tree branch in front of his house and later attached an American flag to it. He reportedly told a Democratic political blogger who said she had concerns, “You can take it and go straight to hell and take Obama with you.”
