Offensive: Hagan Supporters Use Lynching Image On Church Flyer

HaganLynchFlyer

An inflammatory flyer with an image of a lynch mob, paired the text “Kay Hagan doesn’t win! Obama’s impeachment will begin! Vote in 2014,” was distributed to churchgoers in Fayetteville this weekend.

According to the Fayetteville Observer, the flyers were placed on car windshields at the Kingdom Impact Global Ministries church.

“My daughter said, ‘Mom, look in the background. They’re lynching somebody.’ It’s the lynching of an African-American man,” McNair said.

At the bottom, the flier reads, “Not endorsed by any candidate. Paid for by Concerned Citizens of Cumberland County.”No contact information for the group was on the flier.

McNair, 39, said she was confused by the image on the flier and whether it was meant to scare her into voting or frighten her away.
