Duluth voters caught an eyeful of this on their way to the polls today.
First Wisconsin, then Rochester, and now Duluth? Sadly, it appears that's the case.

For the third time in recent weeks, an Obama hater has chosen an especially hateful way to express their opposition to the president, as a Barack effigy was found hanging from a Duluth billboard earlier today.

Here's the full image:

As the Duluth News Tribune's Brandon Stahl explains, law enforcement apparently thought the visual of a Obama doll hanging from a noose was funny:

In the Upper Midwest, it seems nooses have become the unofficial symbol of the racist anybody-but-Obama segment of the population.

Great !  They can replace the effigy with an empty chair.  And when they take that down, I suggest a golf bag.

People are so whiny, this is COMMON. Nobody cries racism when they did this to Bush all over the place. Dumbasses...

Can you all be that weak?  The sheeple comments...that originated for people who follow the masses, meaning new wave idea, such as Obama.  Hand count, who paid for their own college.  Another, who fought to protect liberty?  Another, who doesn't ask for FREE things from the government?  Yeah, I thought so.

It's sad to see people resort to tactics like this, but it is yet just another example of how many people have an intense hatred of Obama due to his failed policies.

Wonder if the person who did this also took the time to vote?

Please what? Until they catch the people or persons who did it, nobody knows what their motives were. I wouldn't put it past an Obama supporter trying to stir up negativity. The Democratic party has been the Kings of negativity in this election.

If you line up with Glen Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, etc you lend tacit approval to this kind of stuff. Shameful.

Aymee:  is it racist to describe our muslim presidsent as he is ?  What color is he, anyway ?  

The all too familiar cry of   "RAAAAAAAACIST" is now worn out and patriotic Americans are are wearing it proudly when it has to do with the #1 racist in the nation or the #2 Eric Holer. (no typo)  So, bless your heart, just keep on showing your knee jerk jerkiness, honey girl.

 @keny1 What failed policies? I am curious to understand how you think EVERYTHING he has done has been a failure?

 @keny1 keny you are a racist piece of shit who uses racist, homophobic, and sexist slurs constantly.  Fuck off with your crocodile tears.   Phony piece of crap.

@sobobmck Your comment lacks merit the moment you refer to him as a "muslim presidsent" ... figuring you mean a Muslim President. I don't like him either, but someone wouldn't be Muslim if they have dismissed the idea. You are not a Christian if you say you aren't, but even if he were a Muslim, why would that be a problem?

Yes, to jump on this as being racist is a bit of a knee jerk, but the symbolism is there. It's not shocking that people see it as a lynching. 

~Hey everyone, apparently racism is over, Fox News has said so. So don't call white people racist, they'll get offended~

No, I only speak the truth.  You speak conjecture.  Big difference.
