When not participating in their other favorite pastime shrieking Muslim slurs at frightened children and their families attending a charity event, conservatives in Orange County, California typically return to their good, old fashioned racist roots in the form of some hilarious black-president-is-a-Socialist-monkey-from-Kenya email, picture, or other awesomely bigoted internet-related humor.
And guess what people?? They’re getting better at it!
“It’s much more racist than the watermelon email,” a county party official said. Can you say mission accomplished!?
Thanks to the bitter old lady talents of one elected member of the Orange County Republican Party, ancient GOP official Marilyn Davenport, life for the gross, hell-bound, eternally damned gays isn’t the only thing that gets better these days.
Life is also improving for terrible hate-filled lunatics, white supremacists, world famous dentist-lawyer-real-estate-agent-birther-freakshows named Orly Taitz, and of course those lovely pillars of the community like Marilyn Davenport who enjoy sending emails with the words, “Now you know why no birth certificate,” accompanied by an Obama family portrait showing them as apes with Obama’s face plastered on a baby chimpanzee.
“I simply found it amusing regarding the character of Obama and all the questions surrounding his origin of birth,” Davenport wrote. “In no way did I even consider the fact he’s half black when I sent out the email. In fact, the thought never entered my mind until one or two other people tried to make this about race. . . . I received plenty of emails about George Bush that I didn’t particularly like yet there was no ‘cry’ in the media about them.”
So true. Leave it to the liberal mainstream media elites to ignore all the horrible, meany, racist jokes bein’ sent around about America’s first (and only!) conservative white Christian cowboy president of special needs.
Reached by telephone and asked if she thought the email was appropriate, Davenport said, “Oh, come on! Everybody who knows me knows that I am not a racist. It was a joke. I have friends who are black. Besides, I only sent it to a few people–mostly people I didn’t think would be upset by it.”
Like white people, duh! Besides, everyone knows black people are monkeys, but everyone also knows monkeys are awesome and adorable, so it’s totally not racist. This is how jokes work, especially when you’re a miserable old 80-year-old wretch who hates anyone whose skin tone does not rest comfortably between skim milk and marshmallow fluff.
Just ask longtime Orange Country (read: no blackies welcome!) Republican activist Tim Whitacre, who defended Davenport because that is what white people who hate black people do for each other.
“Marilyn Davenport is a staunch, ethical Republican lady. There is nothing unethical about this from a party standpoint because it wasn’t sent out to the party at large with any racist statements and it wasn’t signed as a central committee member. As a private individual, she is just real big on Birther stuff. One of her passions that drives her is the president’s lack of forthrightness about where he was born. Marilyn believes that nobody knows where he was born and so this picture says a thousand words.”
“She is not a perfect lady, but she is no racist. She is a gentle person who would feed you, help you, be there for you if you were in trouble. She is known as a pleasant, loving person, and it kills me that she is being attacked by this non-story knowing her mindset.”
As an unhinged nutjob who no likey brown people?
Another GOP official, who also asked not to be identified, said that Davenport is “a really, really sweet old lady so I am surprised to hear about this.”
For the rest of the population however, racist black-people-as-monkey jokes should probably be left to those not elected to represent one of the nation’s two biggest political parties, like say those delightful patriots who named their movement after a sexual act involving testicles being (willingly or unwillingly) dipped in another participant’s mouth.
Scott Baugh, chairman of the OC Republican Party, called the email tasteless, saying, “When I saw that email today I thought it was despicable. It is dripping with racism and it does not promote the type of message Orange County Republicans want to deliver to the public. I think she should consider stepping down as an elected official.”
Michael J. Schroeder, an Orange County resident and former chairman of the California Republican Party, also said he was disgusted.
“This is a three strikes situation for Marilyn Davenport,” Schroeder said. “She was a passionate defender of former Newport Beach City Councilman Dick Nichols, who stated that he was voting against putting in more grass at Corona del Mar’s beach because, he said, there were already ‘too many Mexicans on the beach.’ She was also on the wrong side of the fence with the Los Alamitos mayor and his White House watermelon patch picture. Now, she has managed to top both of those incidents by comparing African Americans to monkeys. She has disgraced herself and needs to resign. If she doesn’t, the Republican Party must remove her.”
Remove her?? Haha, puh-lease! C’mon, do you even know the Republican Party? The racist li’l lady deserves a promotion!
Good thing, Marilyn Davenport knows sending racist emails is nothing to get worked up about.
“That being said, I will NOT resign my central committee position over this matter that the average person knows and agrees is much to do about nothing.”
Unlike a certain monkey man from Kendonesia’s birth origins, I suppose.
Quick someone alert the Donald! Looks like we just found him the perfect (non-primate) running mate.
Hey, The Marilyn Davenport, guess what you’re hired!
Turn your hearing aid up, I SAID, YOU’RE HIRED!!!
What are you a monkey brain or something??
