because he’s black and white and stinky LOLBBQGet it? Of course you do! It’s funny, that’s why!
The Patriot Freedom Alliance, which is based in Hutchinson, Kansas, posted a photo of a skunk on its homepage, stating it had replaced the eagle as a symbol of the president because “it is half black, half white and almost everything it does stinks.”
The image appeared on the group’s website on Saturday but was gone on Sunday, said Darrell Pope, president of the Hutchinson chapter of the NAACP. It was also not on the site Monday, the day after an article about it appeared in the Hutchinson News-Leader newspaper.
“They tried to pass it off as satire, but it was hurtful and malicious,” Pope said on Monday. He said the depiction was racist in its reference to Obama, who was born to a white mother and black father.
Pope said he did not contact the group about removing the skunk, but said it never should have been posted in the first place.
The Patriot Freedom Alliance? That is one seriously patriotic sounding organization. The only way it could sound more patriotic is if it were called the Patriot Freedom Lovin’ Liberty Alliance of Patriots Who Love Jesus Amen.
