Well, last night I was watching the Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC and she pointed out a couple of examples of how the GOP is trying to play to the racial hatred that is ingrained in the fabric or foundations of this great country. Needless to say that what I saw was upsetting, but in the spirit of heeding the call to not "...just sit there!" I figured that the best way to not be a passive victim of this sort of despicable campaigning is to expose them and show the world (not that this blog has that kind of reach) what's going on... Yes, like Mumm-Ra I'm determined hold a mirror to the face of those who would employ such acts and those who would endorse them... So let's start with "Obama Bucks" the Obama food stamp, pictured below:
San Bernardino County Supervisor, 4th District

Rachel Maddow also reported that the Republican Party of Virginia sent this out:

To email any staff person, use their first initial and last name @ rpv.org (for example: Jane Doe would be "firstname.lastname@example.org").
Remember that these are the same people behind George "Macaca" Allen, and he lost his election. So I say you email all of them and tell your friends and family to email and call. Let them know that you don't appreciate their appeal to fear and racial division in this country and as a result your going to donate to the campaign of their rival and call everyone they know in Virginia and tell them to do the same.
Lastly, McCain was adamantly defending his supporters during the final debate. He and his campaign said that his supporters are hardworking Americans that are under attack by Obama and that the Obama campaign is exaggerating claims of racial epithets and derogatory statements by the people attending his rallies... Well, Al Jazera (of all Networks) attended a McCain Palin rally to cover some of the underlying sentiments of the attendees. See for yourself and send this out to as many people as you can...
P.S... You can contact us if you want to join our email campaign or start your own... Please!
Note: It was originally reported that the Chaffey Community Republican Women Federated were affiliated with the online and print publication Red Country... This has been corrected. One of the members of club posted an invitation to an event on Red Country's website, and hence the confusion began...Our apologies to the staff at Red Country for propagating the confusion.
