Outrage: GOP Party Official Sends Photo Of Obama As A Baby Ape
"A Southern California Republican party official is under fire after sending an offensive email depicting President Barack Obama as an ape.
The OC Weekly obtained the email with the controversial photo, which shows the president`s face pasted onto the head of a baby chimp.
The caption beneath the picture read, `Now you know why no birth certificate.`"
The donkey symbolizes the Democratic Party, and it would be kosher to portray Obama as a donkey. However depicting Obama as an ape is patently racist, in less enlightened times blacks were often portrayed as apes and monkeys in the media.
Marilyn Davenport claims she sent the email as a joke, but nobody is laughing. However there are a lot of people who are screaming for her head. The Republican Party of Orange County should do the right thing, and fire her.
Davenport asked a newspaper reporter: You`re not going to make a big deal about this, are you? Duh, what do you think lady?
The real joke is on the American people, Obama may not have a valid birth certificate. Obama should stop monkeying around and release his birth certificate.
