Tea Party Calls Biracial Obama A ‘Skunk’

He is, after all, married to that uppity woman.

Tea Party Calls Biracial Obama A ‘Skunk’ | Addicting Info

Because it’s been at least twenty minutes since a teabagger did something overtly racist, the Patriot Freedom Alliance Tea Party of Hutchinson, Kansas (Kansas? What a shocker…) posted a picture of a skunk on its front page with the caption:

The skunk has replaced the eagle as the new symbol for the president. It is half black, half white, and almost everything it does, stinks.

Thomas Hymer, the “patriot” that runs the page insists that the picture is not racist but merely politically incorrect satire. Of course it’s not. Just like the pictures of Obama as a monkey and a witch doctor have absolutely nothing to do with the color of his skin.

So, seriously, are we saying it's not racist when a racist says it?

So all those comments you made on how stupid George Bush was, were not discrimatory comments against the mentally challenged?

I like how you stand in judgment of prejudice of others, while you display overt prejudice yourself.

There you are on display: commiting the same equivocation/generalizing error you lecture me about. Finding one minor example of a dumb comment, calling it racist, slapping the Tea Party label on it, and denouncing all Tea Parties, or "right wingers" as racist by slapping the label on it.

It seems you are an addict. You demonize anyone outside elite academic circles. I don't think you can stop your addiction.
