San Bernardino County Republican Party- Shame on You!

An example if how just out of touch our party is on the subject of race check out the idiots running “The San Bernardino County Republican Chapter” in Upland, California. They are in trouble after they ran an altered image (see above) of Barack Obama that utilized stereotypes of blacks and was labeled as a “food stamp.” The group used the picture in a newsletter it recently sent out to 200 members, along with the caption, “Obama talks about all those presidents that got their names on bills. If elected, what bill would he be on ????? Food Stamps, what else!” You stay classy, San Bernardino.

The idea that (presumably) educated people would think it’s a good idea to circulate such racist imagery kind of makes our brains melt. At least this Sacramento group’s sign, while still offensive, was nothing new and simply borderline juvenile. We have to give props to California Republican Party chairman Ron Nehring who expressed the proper amount of rage at both incidents when he said:

Any material that invokes issues related to race is unacceptable, tarnishes our party, diminishes the hard work of the tens of thousands of volunteers who are working hard every day for our candidates, and must be condemned. This material I’ve seen inspires nothing but divisiveness and hostility and has absolutely no place in this election, or any public discourse.

Still, we wonder how many more examples of this absurd bullshit we’ll have to endure over the coming weeks as November 4th draws closer.
