Mike Lunsford: Racist of the Week

In case the original article goes “poof” here is the basic text

Surprise, shock and some fear in a local neighborhood, after an anti-Obama display is hung from a tree. The display is at a home at Symmes and Hicks Road in Fairfield.

And the person who put it there says the message isn’t political, it’s racist. Shawn Ley spoke with the man who isn’t shy about his views.

There it is, right above the “McCain-Palin” sign: a make-shift ghost, hanging from a noose. A Barack Obama sign attached upside down. Obama’s middle name: “Hussein” spray painted and misspelled above.

Mike Lunsford hung the ghost in his yard. He spoke to us off-camera, saying his views could hurt his employers business … but he says make no mistake: He doesn’t want an African American running the country.

Lunsford says he believes Barack Obama is not a “full blooded American.” And he says the United States is a white, Christian nation – and only with white Christians should be in power. With Lunsford not willing to share his views on-camera:

In the morning Mike Gets out of bed and looks out into an empty field, wondering where his world went wrong.  He was sure that he and his kind would rule the world some day, but alas, he was born about 50 years too late, and in the wrong country.

One wonders how he gets by on such hated, I know a few racists and even they aren’t quite so “in your face” about it. They tend to hide it under a “scholarly” hat, as in “I’m justified in my beliefs because of this historical or anthropological fact” this guy really takes the cake.

Anyone else know more about him?
