No one ever said this race was going to be pretty, but that doesn't mean it is sad when you see the racist elements of the GOP pop out from time to time. The buttons in Texas, the t-shirts in Georgia and now a local Republican website in New Jersey is a small sample of what some on the right will throw at Barack Obama.
After local Democrats “alleged racist campaign tactics,” the Republican Club in Pemberton, NJ removed a banner yesterday from its website that compared Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) to O.J. Simpson. “Obama loves America like O.J. loved Nicole,” the banner read. Though the image has now been removed, Blue Jersey saved a screen shot of the offensive banner:
This one was taken down once someone said something, but it certainly will not be the last. Dirty (and unfortunately racist) tricks are what the GOP knows best. They can not win a debate on the issues, so for whatever prejudiced and ignorant reason a local Republican leader in New Jersey decided to do this.
As long as they keep it up, we will continue exposing and shaming them for it.
