GOP Facebook image is disgusting!
link: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=30334764&op=1&o=g...

The picture is Obama eating fried chicken, and the sing reads:


Miscegenation is a crime against American Values.

Repeal Loving v. Virginia

Miscegenation means: a mixture of races; especially : marriage, cohabitation, or sexual intercourse between a white person and a member of another race.

Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1 (1967)<1>, was a landmark civil rights case in which the United States Supreme Court, by a 9-0 vote, declared Virginia's anti-miscegenation statute, the "Racial Integrity Act of 1924", unconstitutional, thereby overturning Pace v. Alabama (1883) and ending all race-based legal restrictions on marriage in the United States.

8. There is another racist photo on that page, of Mother Theresa
feeding a dark-skinned child. Same poster put it up. I reported that one as racist, as well.

4. It says it was added 10/20
So it has been up five days and not one person administering the site did anything about it. Apparently the site administrator finds this correctly sums up Republican philosophy.

within 30 seconds. I suggest that others do the same. My wall post identified the photo and notified them that I was sending links to it to the media.

30. Easy
Not all racists are actually intellectually stupid. There are racists in the south who know the history of race relations in the US pretty well, including such things as miscegenation laws. In fact, I think more Klansmen are aware of the concept of miscegenation than regular Americans.

As I keep saying, like a broken record: the modern GOP are the Wallace people. That's pretty much all they have left.

46. Ironic that Wallace himself might not be among those Wallace people now,
were he alive. Didn't he recant his racism later in his life? I remember reading such.

I might be wrong, of course. I remember the racist Wallace.

57. Yes, he did
Wallace was worse than a simple racist: he was a demagogue who gave the white voters of Alabama--and most of the rest of the south--what they wanted. And he remained a Democrat when most of his followers became Republicans.

But all the Wallace people, and their kids and grandkids, are Republicans now: they are at the core of the Teabaggers, the Birthers and every other crazy conservative movement. Much of their style, beliefs and political culture come straight out of the white supremacy movement that informed their political socialization. Only the names on the signs are different.

38. That caption on the photo of Mother Teresa is about as far from Christianity as you can get--
Edited on Mon Oct-26-09 10:09 AM by Mrs. Overall
aren't the Republicans always on the soapbox about their Christian values?

What f'ing hypocrites.

47. Actually, I think the one with Mother Teresa may be a satirical jab
at the members of this facebook group - along the lines of "A Modest Proposal."

Mother Teresa is such a conservative icon for anti-choice purposes, that I just can't see this as something even these people would create.

The Obama fried chicken one, however....that's not ironic at all.

60. I contended that they are too comfortable with Racist images.
The Republicans who carried various signs that included the Swastika and pictures of Obama with a Hitler moustache at their Teabagging Parties were completely comfortable carrying those Swastikas and Hitler imagery.

The reason why they are comfortable carrying the Swastika?

They decorate their homes with Swastikas!

They are Neo-Nazis, that's why!
