Inspired By Fox News

A Minnesota couple doesn't understand why people are so upset with their noose and chair reference to President Obama. After all, they got the idea from Fox News.
Mulholland said she doesn’t consider the display a form of hate speech and doesn’t hold animosity toward blacks. She said the display isn’t meant as a direct threat to Obama. Perhaps it's not a threat, but it certainly has the impact of a hate-motivated display, said W.C. Jordan, president of the Rochester branch of the NAACP as well as the Minnesota/Dakota Area State Conference president. He heard about it through the city's hate-crime prevention task force. "It's pretty much gone viral," Jordan said of the Mulhollands' display, and he's heard about it from people outside the state.
