MORGAN HILL, Calif. — Some residents are calling a symbolic political display erected by a Morgan Hill homeowner that features two watermelons and a noose racist and even vaguely threatening towards President Obama.Listen Señor Gomez, you're either with us or against us. Why don't you drop the chalupa and go back to Spainland with your 30 relatives?
The apparent reference to President Obama made some people passing by, including Republicans, uneasy.
"We shouldn't be threatening with a noose and a watermelon," said San Martin resident Ben Gomez. "I believe that's a little over the top. I like the chair and the teleprompter. I mean, they're just copying Clint Eastwood, so I can't blame them on that one. But the noose goes a little over the edge."
Look, it's not like people aren't joking about lynching Mitt Romney. I mean, somewhere they must be.
