LOS ANGELES A Southern California Republican Party official was under fire yesterday after allegations she sent an email that included an altered photo depicting President Barack Obama as an ape.
An email reportedly sent by party central committee member Marilyn Davenport shows an image, posed like a family portrait, of chimpanzee parents and child, with Obama's face artificially superimposed on the child. Text beneath the photo reads, "Now you know why no birth certificate."
Davenport, when reached by The Associated Press, said she would provide a written statement with her response, but several hours later she had not issued one.
The alternative newspaper OC Weekly first reported the story, and was told by Davenport that the e-mail was "just an Internet joke." She also asked the Weekly, "You're not going to make a big deal about this are you?"
The OC Weekly later reported that Davenport issued a statement in which she denied race played a role.
"I simply found it amusing regarding the character of Obama and all the questions surrounding his origin of birth,"
That’s just ig’nert and tacky, imo.
you remember how they used to call GW Bush a chimp, right?
He has his father’s eyes.....
Yeah, he’s a Chimpy Bushitler war-criminal.
The californis GOP has a central committee? What next a politbureau?
Exactly. My leftwing bro in law used to call him Chimpy McFlightsuit.
But that was okay.
did he call him a ‘smirking chimp’???
That’s horible- liberals never do things like that...
...and anything done against a White person CANNOT BE racist.
1. Chimpy McFlightsuit
A clueless, drunken, arrogant silver spoon who usurps power through family connections and fuels a wartime economy on the backs of future generations. Resembles a monkey in facial expressions as well as oratory skills.
Chimpy McFlightsuit took the oath of office in January 2001
2. Chimpy McFlightsuit
1. A man who looks and acts like a chimpanzee, and who also wears a flight suit in order to look tougher than he actually is.
2. Another name for George W. Bush.
Well, imagine how the apes felt being compared to Obama.
What about their feelings - hmmm?
It could have been worse.............what if they had called him David Gregory?
It’s time to show the left that their Alynski tactic of labelling your opponent to make him fear speaking the truth
is not going to work anymore.
Picture looks closer to Kenya than Hawaii!
Whoever did this is a freakin idiot
Let’s get to the root of the “offense”.
Comparing black people to apes is offensive because it refers to the Darwinistic assumption of evolution and his assertions that some “races” are closer to apes and less evolved than others.
From a creationist point of view, we all decended from one man who was created in God’s image, separate from the animals. Racism based on genetics cannot be a factor in this worldview.
Leaving out the baseless social constructs, why is this worse than doing the same thing to Bush?
They look too nice to be his parents.
