The Republican Committee of Loudoun County, Virginia, labeled a picture of President Obama with a bullet through his head as "light-hearted" fun, that injected "satire humor into the Halloween holiday."
I've posted it here because I want to continue to document the many, many racist images and emails of President and Mrs. Obama that various local Republican committees around the country have generated since Mr. Obama became president.
When the GOP whines about people calling them racist when they criticize the president's policies, they obscure the fact that people label the GOP racist because of these kinds of sordid and vicious images of the president that they giddily pass around to their fellow racists.
Most decent people have condemned the image, but the fact remains that this is still a part of what the GOP is and whom they tolerate in their party.
"A Halloween-themed email from the Loudoun County, Va., Republican Committee was swiftly condemned by conservative and liberal groups today for featuring an image of a ghoulish-looking President Obama with a bullet hole through his head.
The message, with the subject line “Halloween 2011,” invites supporters to a community parade where “we are going to vanquish the zombies with clear thinking conservative principles and a truckload of Republican candy.” It also features a caricature of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, a jack-o-lantern, and cartoons of zombies.
The email was first reported by the blog Too Conservative, which said the group had gone “way too far” and should be reported to the U.S. Secret Service.
Mark Sell, chairman of the Loudoun County Republican Committee, explained that the email was a “light-hearted attempt to inject satire humor into the Halloween holiday.”
