If this had been a Tea Party, it'd be racism

Via AOL News:

Protesting the imminent firing of all 74 of the teachers at a failing Rhode Island high school, an instructor hung a doll of President Barack Obama from its feet in his classroom.

The effigy, which was discovered Monday, was accompanied by a sign reading "Fire Central Falls teachers."

Central Falls school officials as well as the teachers union have denounced the symbolic gesture. The union said the teacher, whose name was not released, said he planned to use the figure as part of the day's lessons, although it wasn't clear how.

Oh, but you see, since teachers (and their unions) are usually huge supporters of Democrats/liberals/Obama, the dreaded "R" word was, I'm sure, carefully avoided by the MSM ... !

I have a problem with the guy doing it in his classroom. That's all.

Otherwise it is not at all out of line with the sort of stuff we saw the Left do regarding Bush for 8 years.

And remember, of course that dissent -- especially dissent which questions the legitimacy of the election of the President of the United States or which depicts the murder of the President of the United States -- is the highest form of patriotism.
