Illinois GOP Group Apologizes After Reportedly Posting Bigoted 'Jihad Squad' Meme

The Illinois Republican County Chairman’s Association is apologizing after an apparent posting of a bigoted meme on its Facebook page calling several Democratic congresswomen of color the “jihad squad.”

The image shows Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan, who are known collectively as “the squad” in a mock movie poster. The RCCA has not confirmed whether it created the image, though the screenshot shows that the poster bears the organization’s insignia on the bottom right-hand corner. “Political jihad is their game,” the poster reads. “If you don’t agree with their Socialist ideology, you’re racist.”

On Sunday, RCCA President Mark Shaw released a statement acknowledging that “an image which was not authorized by me was posted on the Facebook page of the Illinois Republican County Chairmen’s Association. I am sorry if anyone who saw the image was offended by the contents.”

7. Who came up with the "Squad" moniker ? I don't think it's a positive image for them.

10. Typical hollow GOP walk-back.

The damage is irreversible as well as viral on the internet......

Showing these public servants with guns is a very dangerous idea in today's America.

Now, the whole lot of them need to drive to D.C. and apologize in person......

But not sorry for posting it?
