Remember when we said that the continuous train of blatantly racist Obama slander was about to really pick up steam again? Well, here we go.
The John Locke Foundation, a conservative North Carolina-based think tank, is in full cover-our-asses mode after posting an image of President Obama in chains, drag, and with a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken in front of him. They can thank blogger Tara Servatius for the attention.
According to Servatius, she never considered the picture’s message, because she doesn’t “think in those terms.” Here’s the “justification” she gave The Sun News:
At the time, I was searching for a picture of the president in drag to illustrate his southern political strategy of courting young voters, 70 percent of whom support gay marriage. It was one of the first photos to come up on Google Images. Regrettably, I didn’t think about the racial implications of the picture when I posted it. I simply don’t think in those terms. Unfortunately some people do.
So she had no idea how a picture depicting the President — who just happens to be a black man — with a bucket of fried chicken between his legs would be interpreted? Also, being gay and engaging in drag are two different things—you don't know shit, Servatius.
No surprises here, but we're not letting her cook with the clueless act, and neither should anyone else.
