[UPDATED:] Racist Orange County Republican Email: President Obama and His Parents Are Apes
OCWeekly ^ | APRIL 16, 5:55 P.M.: | By R. Scott Moxley

Posted on 04/16/2011 6:34:52 PM PDT by fight_truth_decay

This afternoon, Marilyn Davenport sent an email to fellow Orange County Republican elected officials, apologized if anyone was offended and blasted the "liberal media" for reporting the story.

"I simply found it amusing regarding the character of [President Barack] Obama and all the questions surrounding his origin of birth," Davenport wrote. "In no way did I even consider the fact he's half black when I sent out the email. In fact, the thought never entered my mind until one or two other people [Scott Baugh, Orange County GOP boss and Moxley] tried to make this about race . . . I received plenty of emails about George Bush that I didn't particularly like yet there was no 'cry' in the media about them . . . That being said, I will NOT resign my central committee position over this matter that the average person knows and agrees is much to do about nothing."

Remember all the ads and comments depicting GWB as a chimp?

The problem is that this woman was probably too naive to realize that any black person who sees a monkey immediately thinks the monkey refers to black people ... although there is absolutely no reason to think this. Maybe it’s in the eye of the beholder, and if you’re race-obssessed, you see racism everywhere.

Apparently, we are no longer allowed to depict monkeys in any context (I read that even Curious George was now considered racist). When I saw this picture, I thought they were suggesting that Obama was the “Missing Link” because he claims to come from African parentage but nobody knows anything about him.

How is the picture racist?

Orectum is 50% white and 46% arab.

He’s a moslem cracker. A halal biscuit.

It’s hilarious that race-baiters get wee-weed up over this. How can anti-black racism apply to a person who’s NOT EVEN BLACK?

A picture like that has to start somewhere..I doubt Ms Davenport made up the photo which was reported sent by her to insiders. If what reported is true in the Update that she admits sending.. someone unknown to her may have sent it to her and she passed it on, like all the FW: FW: type e-mails one gets each day in their mailbox.

....have been trying to find where it may have originated from-- as know I have seen it before.

There’s always one brain dead Republican out there that is willing to give the Leftist evidence that Republicans are racists.

When they do, the Left says we’re all racists and the media reinforces that belief.

When the left does something racist, they deny it’s racist, the media backs that view, and the whole thing is forgotten in moments never to be heard of again in the media.

I got the exact same email - circulating amongst those that oppose Obama. But it was just plain STUPID of an Official member of O.C.’s Republican Party to send it on. What are these folks thinking??!! They have to know someone will send it on to the press & we’ll all end up looking like racists, regardless of all the Chimpy McBush-Hitler cr*p that went around a few years ago. It really is the Stupid Party!

An ape is any member of the biological superfamily Hominoidea (hominoids). There are two families of hominoids:

* Hylobatidae consists of four genera and sixteen species of gibbon, including the lar gibbon and the siamang, collectively known as the lesser apes.

* Hominidae consists of chimpanzees, gorillas, humans and orangutans collectively known as the great apes.

As an ape, I am deeply offended to see Obama portrayed as an ape.

Yes...that's what I was thinking..

In the case of: Tennessee CEO Walt Baker sorry for 'humor' e-mail gag comparing Michelle Obama to Tarzan's chimp

Baker's e-mail, which someone had sent him and he forwarded, contained a photo of Michelle Obama along side a photo of Tarzan's chimpanzee sidekick.

Back in October, several hundred state workers received an e-mail proclaiming "white pride," and shortly after that, 20 Senate staffers were sent an e-mail from a legislative aide with President Obama seen on a black background as just a pair of eyes.

And don’t libs, and lots of people on FR, believe that we evolved from apes? And if Obama didn’t evolve from an ape then he must be less than human, right? So which is worse?

I thought the picture was pretty funny. The truth is that Obama’s ears stick out like a chimp and his self-chosen hairstyle is as chimp-like as can be. Bush also had a bit of a chimp thing going (as the drooling leftists were so adamant about pointing out), and turnabout sure as hell is fair play.

lol... Yes, I think way back when that one single cell got all hot and bothered and reproduced itself it became a two headed monster. I think the diagnosis got peer review under bjClinton when his handlers said his private mind never was in contact with his public mind. He could compartmentalize... like that was what it takes to 'survive'...

Liberals love the TOE and have demanded it be the law of the land and now they want to whine, itch and moan when anyone takes their doctrine to heart... It would be 'rolling' on the ground laughing hysterical if it were not such a travesty of insanity.

If it is OK to portray a Republican president as a simian then it is OK to portray a Democrat president as one as well.

Besides, aren't we all supposedly descended from apes anyway, as the left likes to tell us?

Yes, I know. I’m just saying, what’s the big deal, if we take the liberal tack and point out that humans evolved from apes, according to them. Then it shouldn’t bother them to compare anyone to a monkey or primate.

We would be racist if we didn’t post pictures of Obama as a monkey.

Since LBJ every single president has been depicted as a chimp or monkey.

To ignore this modern phenomenon we would be derelict of our duties to ridicule presiding presidents of this well deserved honor.

And that would be racist.
