ROCHESTER, Minnesota (KTTC) - A Rochester, Minnesota man is raising eyebrows with a disturbing political yard display.
Kevin Mulholland put up the display of a rocking chair hanging from what appears to be a noose from a tree.
The display went up after the Republican National Convention speech of Clint Eastwood when he referenced an empty chair.
Kevin says the set-up is not a representation of hate speech, but simply his own political beliefs, "This guy needs to go. He needs to get fired. I mean, people need to kick him out of the White House."
Neighbors are concerned. Many feel it represents lynching. The Diversity Council says it may be pushing the line a bit too far.
"For me, that display illustrates hate and violence and I think that that violates the values that the majority of our community hold, " says Kay Hockere, Executive Director of the Diversity Council.
Mulholland insists he's not a racist -- just strongly opposes President Obama.
