Representatives of the Republican Party, still reeling from their November losses, are at it again. First, Limbaugh, one of their party leaders and chief spokesperson, said he wanted Obama and our country to Fail. Then Chip Saltsman, candidate for RNC Chair, sent out a "Barack the Magic Negro" CD to his fellow RNC members. Now, Rupert Murdoch, owner of Fox News and a large RNC contributor, has his NY Post newspaper publish an extremely racist cartoon against Obama's Stimulus package.
Here is what some have said about the cartoon: Barbara Ciara, president of the National Association of Black Journalists said: "To compare the nation's first African-American commander in chief to a dead chimpanzee is nothing short of racist drivel."
The Rev. Al Sharpton called the cartoon "troubling at best given the historic racist attacks of African-Americans as being synonymous with monkeys." Sharpton planned to picket the Post on Thursday along with others.
Judge the cartoon for yourselves. Clearly Racist!! It appears the RNC is not only desperate, they are resorting to mean racism to rally their troops. Shame on them!!
NY Post cartoon seems to link Obama to dead chimp
