Virginia GOP Affiliate Ignores Orders to Remove Racist Obama Imagery From Facebook
A Virginia GOP affiliate thought it would be hilarious to post photos of President Obama as a witch doctor, a caveman, and a thug on the official Mecklenburg County GOP Facebook page. When Virginia Republican Party officials asked the chairman of the committee, a dude named Wallace “Wally” Hudson, to remove the images, Wally laughed and refused.
Because racism is always hilarious, and if you don’t think so, you should shut up and quit being so goddamn sensitive, that’s why:
RICHMOND — Virginia Republican Party officials on Tuesday ordered their Mecklenburg County affiliate to remove photos portraying President Obama as a witch doctor, a caveman and a thug from its Facebook page.
R. Wallace “Wally” Hudson, chairman of the committee, was surprised to hear from a reporter that anyone had taken offense.
“If that group is that sensitive, I’m sorry, they’re just not human,” he said, chuckling. “It’s not American. If they’ve got a problem with it, we’re not going to change what we do.”
He didn’t seem any more inclined to take the state party’s feelings into account when told in a subsequent interview what Mullins had said.
“They can do what they want,” he said, chuckling again. “I’m waiting for the phone call.”
Note the classic defense against patently racist behavior—“They’re too sensitive.” Such nonsense is always the first refuge of a racist or an asshole defending racist behavior.
