A small town in Tennessee was outraged to find that a human dummy, meant to represent the GOP, was hanged in effigy holding Marsha Blackburn signs.
“An unknown person hung a dummy from a tree at the corner of 130 and Snell Road. The dummy had a GOP outfit on, a white dunce hat, and a Marsha Blackburn sign hanging from it. Under that, there’s a sign reading “Stop the Hate,” said Fox17.
Nothing said “stop the hate” like the lynching of a political opponent. Democrats truly have not changed since their days of slave ownership.
According to the report, the Blackburn effigy was hanged close to a nearby elementary school, sparking outrage among residents. The owners of the land on which the effigy was hanged do not live in the town, and the identity of the culprit remains a mystery.
The report said that the same thing happened in 2012, when Mitt Romney and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) made a White House bid on the Republican ticket.
“It happened in the Romney/Ryan election. They had him hanging in the tree covered in red paint and signs on there with slashes through it, that kind of thing. And then Trump, we had the same thing hanging there,” a resident told Fox17.
Proof that Democrat violence is not a new trend, it has just been heightened since Trump took office.
