Texas man receives death threats over scarecrow that was deemed ‘racist’

Published

A Texas man has been forced to retire his Halloween scarecrow after having his address posted online and receiving death threats because someone thought it was racist.

In a photo of the scarecrow that was published on Facebook, chains hanging from a nearby tree gave the illusion that the scarecrow was being hanged from one of the branches. In reality, the scarecrow was standing on the ground and the plastic chains were not connected to it in any way.

The scarecrow also appeared to have black hands and feet, as the homeowner had used an old pair of baseball gloves to create the hands.

“Many commenters called for the homeowner to be arrested, or the house to be shot at or burned down. The house address was included in the original Facebook post,” Click2Houston reports.

The fact that the photo was an illusion did not get in the way of the social media outrage machine however, and the homeowner, identified by Click2Houston only as “Roderick” soon became the target of an internet mob. The photo was posted by an exterminator who had been to the house as he was going to be spraying for bugs. It was shared nearly 1,000 times before being set to private.

“People have been coming by and taking pictures with him for years,” Roderick told Click2Houston. “There’s never been an issue, I never even thought it was going to be an issue, no one’s even suggested this might be an issue.”

Roderick had constructed the scarecrow himself a decade ago out of yoga mats, pvc pipes, duct tape, old toys, and a brown pair of boots. He had also constructed a “Slender Man” scarecrow using white gloves and a white mask for this Halloween season — however, he has retired both due to the internet outrage.

“I’m dealing with murder threats, drive-by’s and house burning” threats, Roderick said. “I like trying to be scary … but yeah, not anymore, no more Halloween celebrations.”

Roderick’s neighbors have defended him, asserting that there is “not a racist bone in his body.”

Journalist Andy Ngo has been forced to leave the United States after enduring credible death threats from ANTIFA domestic terrorists over the course of many months.

Ngo made the shocking announcement that he has relocated to London during a recent appearance on Sky News. He explained how ANTIFA’s reign of terror forced him to leave his home of Portland, Ore. and then the country to protect his safety.

“For a number of months now there’s just been increasing threats of violence against me, promises by Antifa extremists to kill me,” Ngo said about his ordeal.

Big League Politics has reported on how ANTIFA targeted Ngo in the past with violence in an attempt to intimidate him and prevent him from telling the truth about the domestic terror organization:

A Twitter post from Friday shows that the attack on reporter Andy Ngo, who was savagely beaten by an Antifa mob in Portland, Oregon, was premeditated.

“I am nervous about tomorrow’s Portland antifa rally,” he said on Twitter. “They’re promising ‘physical confrontation’ & have singled me out to be assaulted. I went on Tucker Carlson last year to explain why I think they’re doing this: They’re seeking meaning through violence.”

He posted several screenshots from a Facebook event – which of course portrayed the violent mob as the victims of violence themselves – and screenshots from a local Antifa website promoting the event.

“Oregon City Proud Boy [redacted] targets the Portland DSA in a Facebook thread encouraging other members of the hate group to participate in the June 29 assault on Portland. Local far-right Islamophobic journalist Andy Ngo – who participated in the Patriot Prayer and Proud Boys attack on Cedar Riot on May 1, 2019, and who was the first to publicly promote the June 29 Proud Boys event – also targets the DSA while dismissing as hoaxes a series of assaults against the Portland LGBTQ community, some of which were gloated about by far-right activists.”

Another part of the post noted that the group was planning on “physical confrontation,” but said that there are “plenty of other ways to help” if one is unable to partake in the violence.

Ngo’s fears were confirmed when he was attacked Saturday.

Ngo’s experiences show that ANTIFA is not an idea, but a dangerous group of terrorist thugs at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution. By standing strong and continuing reporting the truth about ANTIFA, Ngo is refusing to let the terrorists win.
