Marilyn Davenport, a Southern California Tea Party activist and member of the central committee of the Orange County Republican Party exposed herself, the GOP and the Tea Party for the racist pigs they really are when Davenport sent out an email to her fellow conservatives this week which included an Obama family portrait showing them as apes under the words “Now you know why no birth certificate.”
And whats Davenports original reaction after being busted?
*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.”
Scott Baugh, chairman of the OC Republican Party, told Davenport that the email was tasteless, “When I saw that email today I thought it was despicable,” Baugh said. “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.”
“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 [Scott Baugh, Orange County GOP boss, and this writer] 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.”
Davenport continued: “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.”
See the GOP and Tea Party isn’t racist. Not at all.
