So president Obama announces his bid for reelection like and hour ago, and these racist-ass Republicans couldn’t wait to start the bullshit. Remember all those supposed-to-be-funny racist emails back during the 2008 campaign? Well, at least one veteran of the race baiting game, California Republican official, Marilyn Davenport, is back at it again. This time, she’s pulling the “Birther” jokes out of her ass. This time, she’s in hot water for circulating an email with the above pic depicting Obama as the offspring of monkeys. The punchline being, hence the reason there’s no birth certificate:
ORANGE COUNTY (CBS) — KCAL9 received a tip about a racist email circulated to some Republican Party members depicting President Obama’s parents as chimpanzees.
This week Marilyn Davenport, a Southern California Tea Party activist and member of the central committee of the Orange County Republican Party circulated what some are calling hate e-mail to an unknown number of her fellow conservatives.
Written under the words, “Now you know why — No birth certificate!”, is an Obama family portrait depicting his parents as chimpanzees.
When asked if she thought the email was appropriate, Davenport is quoted as saying, “Oh, come on! Everybody who knows me knows that I am not a racist. It was a joke. I have friends who are black. Besides, I only sent it to a few people–mostly people I didn’t think would be upset by it.”
Former Chairman of the California Republican Party Michael Schroder has demanded Davenport’s resignation saying it’s not her first brush with racist rhetoric.(source)It’s bad enough that Arizona passed a “Birther” law which requires anyone (who they think is Kenyan) to submit a birth certificate, or show that you’re circumcised (if you have a penis) to be on the ballot. This has never been done before in history (yeah white folks, see how they change rules once Black people get in the game?). Now you have this so-called non-racist because she has Black friends, continuing in racist tradition. Oh yeah, watch the following video and listen to them detail her racist and racism-defending antics as well as those of others. Hopefully Republican officials get her out of there; she gotta go. Everybody knows her, “I have Black friends,” response is quite typical.
Keep it post-racial Teapublicans!
