As reported by Mary Clarkin in The Hutchinson News, a Kansas Tea party group calling itself the Patriot Freedom Alliance, posted a picture of a skunk on its website saying that the skunk should replace the eagle as the country’s symbol.
“It is half black, half white, and almost everything it does, stinks,” the website captioned the picture.
“It’s satire is what it is,” said Thomas Hymer, who maintains the group’s website, told Clarkin. “Satire in a politically incorrect form.”
Or, you know, a racist form…
Another Tea party supporter, an apparently not very bright fellow named Chuck Sankey, agreed with Thomas Hymer that it’s satire to call a person of mixed racial heritage a… skunk.
“It just makes a point that we’re in trouble and what’s happening doesn’t smell right,” Sankey said. “That’s what it means to me.”
That’s because you’re a fucking idiot, Chuck!
Sankey told The Hutchison News, “Isn’t that the truth? What’s wrong with the truth?”
Obama’s mother was a white American, and his father was a black African.
“It may be offensive to some, of course, but in humor there is always an element of truth,” said Sankey, saying he is neither racist nor bigoted but is concerned about the direction the country is going.
If people are offended by it, Sankey said, his advice is: “Don’t look at it.”
Sankey also said Sarah Palin has been the target of worse insults.
Uh, maybe so, Chuckles, but how many racist insults do you reckon were leveled at Sarah Palin? Wanna hazard a guess?
And Tea partiers wonder why everyone thinks they’re a bunch of dumb racists?
