Cassy Zobel of McKinney, Texas has been the target of harassment by a deranged Republican who vandalized her Obama/Biden re-election yard sign with the message: “N*GGER LOVER — Obama Sucks Dick!”
The back side of the sign was covered with, “Romney & Ryan: Christian. White. Anti-Gay. Republicans Rule!”
My next door neighbor rang my doorbell this morning and showed me my sign, which he had kindly removed from the ground,” Cassy told blogger Egberto Willies. “We have at least 4 African American families living on this street. I’m so offended, not just because whoever did this is ignorant and misinformed and trespassed and vandalized my sign, but infinitely more for my neighbors who might have driven by and seen it.”
“I support the President because he believes in all people, he prefers diplomacy to bombs, and he is part of the party of inclusion, not exclusion,” she explained. “I support him because he believes that food and medicine for our kids shouldn’t be put on the table for cuts before tax breaks for big corporations. I support him because he supports my right to determine what I do with my body and what my daughter someday chooses to do with hers.”
In a posting on her blog on Friday Cassie wrote:
“I find it interesting that our little suburban city was just named the 2nd best place to live in America,” Cassy noted. “I suppose there should have been a caveat. ‘Best Place to Live If You’re A Bigoted White, Christian, Anti-Gay Person Who Doesn’t Support Our First African-American President And Hates Everyone Who Does.’ That was probably too long a title, though.”
Helpful Hint From Heloise on how to keep your Obama/Biden sign vandal-free on your property: Get one pair of rubber gloves, a facemask, goggles and a can of pepper spray and spray sign liberally.
