SNOHOMISH COUNTY, Wash. — A $3 bill has both Democrats and Republicans talking.
The controversial bill features Barack Obama wearing a headdress, propelling a widespread myth that he’s Muslim. Some call it a joke, but not everyone’s laughing.
Carol Ronken is, in fact fuming over the bill which she found at the Evergreen State Fair’s Republican Party booth.
“It’s racist. It’s disgusting,” she said.
On the bill the words “da man” are printed under his face, perpetuating the myth. Obama is, in fact, a Christian.
“To make money on top of it even makes it worse,” Ronken said. “They weren’t giving it way; they were selling it for $3.”
Ronken snapped a picture, then called the local newspaper.
Republican county chair Geri Modrell says she never approved the bill.
However she also says she’s not going to waste any time looking for the originator because “it’s tough enough to recruit volunteers and she doesn’t want to alienate another.”
The GOP – Having Racist Volunteers Is Preferable to Doing The Work Ourselves!
If you’re a member of the GOP and this pisses you off – it should. Remember this is how a lot of people see you – a bunch of mean-spirited isolationists afraid of Blacks, Mexicans, Jews and other assorted Foreigners. You can change that, but it’ll take a considerable amount of work. Or you can sit back, do nothing, and let the nuts define who you are.
