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?
