Daily Mail ^ | 04/16/11 | Staff

Posted on 04/16/2011 8:13:53 PM PDT by BunnySlippers

A member of the Tea Party has sent a racist email with a picture of Barack Obama and his parents as chimpanzees, it has been revealed.

The email sent by Marilyn Davenport, a Southern California Tea Party activist and member of the central committee of the Orange County Republican Party, was titled: 'Now you know why - no birth certificate.'

The attached picture showed a mocked-up photo of the President as a baby chimpanzee being held by his so-called parents - also chimps in human clothing.

Why is it they can call Bush “Chimp” but calling a black man “Chimp” is off limits?

I don’t remember anyone on the left being outraged when some Dem ass clown posted a demeaning photo of Trig Palin.

Sorry I'm not buying it. As 2012 draws near look for more of these "racist Tea Party" stories. Right around Dec. we'll start seeing them hit U.S. papers, and they'll spread like wildfire in the MSM. I've been to 5 different Tea Party rallies, and you'd never met a nicer group of people. Are there a few nut jobs, probably, but they're a definite minority.

Compare any conservative gathering to the nonsense still happening in WI. The media soft pedals the violence and "hate speech", but look at any leftist site and you'll see the real story. People being beaten for disagreeing, union thugs refusing to leave the capital and allow legislators to vote, shouting down people the union opposes. The left seems proud of the outrageous behavior.

Look there are idiots in any organization.

There could be plants (probably will be as you say) ... but there are also genuine bonafide dumba$$es within the tea party as well.

I’m calling this Marilyn Davenport out as one of the latter.
She isn’t worth defending in any way, even the “they are worse” type of defense.

Also, being a total &%$*ing moron is no excuse

Cut her loose.

Wasn’t long ago newspapers had a cartoon of Condi Rice with big lips and acting as a dummy who just does she she is told, yet not much from minority groups, much less liberals of the outrage. Racism is just purely politics anymore, it has nothing to do with rights for people. Liberals are the biggest racists in this country.

I gotta say, here is proof the marxists have been waiting and begging for, that some tea party wig would bring down the whole movement. What a straw for brains we had among us. Irreparable damage here. Absolutely costly for the black vote!

Sure, if this is a true story then absolutely cut her loose with extreme prejudice. I just know how the left loves to plant people like this to tar whoever they disagree with.

My only point is don't be too quick to be taken in by stories such as this. Remember the stories of the black rep being spat at by members of the Tea Party. It was bogus, but the MSM ran with it without a shred of proof.

Every group has nut jobs, but while they're a minority amongst conservatives, the nuts are celebrated on the left.

I am anti Obama’s policies. I am a Conservative. But I fail to see why so many are pretending not to understand why this is offensive and why it does have racial overtones.

The woman did an idiotic thing. I am not assuming she meant to be malicious but she sure as heck was not thinking. She should acknowledge her poor judgment and then shut the heck up about it.

We need to stop defending stuff that should not be defended just because it was done by another conservative.

That picture is an obvious fake.

Everyone knows Obama’s mother and the putative father, Barack Obama, Sr., were never within a thousand miles of each other from the time he was born.

Unless that is Malcolm X in the picture.

Hmmm......

Just something to consider as you read the "chimp" story.

Yes - it is wrong.

Just as wrong as all the Chimpy-McBush-Hitler pictures of Dubya as a chimpanzee the lefties tittered over for the eight years of the Bush presidency.

But, but, it’s more. Those 15 million or so black voters cast 70 million or so votes! Heck, Chicago alone probably accounts for 90 million votes and that’s a lot for a city of 7 million people.

You’re right, but that one vote probably won’t matter.

Playing the race card is so yesterday. Several emails were circulated portraying President Bush as a Chimp and much worse. Where was the indignation then? The double standard is also old.
