LCRC Goes WAY Too Far

By Loudoun Insider

This cartoon montage just arrived as part of an LCRC email blast.  I am no fan of Barack Obama, but putting up a photo of him as a zombie with a bullet hole in his head????????????  Like him or not he is the legitimately elected the President of the United States and Commander in Chief of our armed services in a time of war.  THIS IS DISGUSTING AND SHAMEFUL.  Someone should send this to the US Secret Service.

 

UPDATE:  RPV condemns the photo, story at WaPo Virginia Politics blog.

“The disgusting image used today on a mass e-mail has no place in our politics. Ever,’’ said Pat Mullins, chairman of the state party. “The Republican Party of Virginia condemns the image and its use in the strongest possible terms.”

    Specifically to “TruthTeller”:

    Your historic perspective shows lack of understanding. When you said things like “(1) It was the Democratic Party that was behind slavery and segreation” , You are obviously and on purpose committing the FACT that the liberals at that time were the Republicans , like Lincoln.

    More over, the Democrats and Republicans have played alternatively the role of Liberals and Conservatives .

    For decades, the Democrats opposed desegration. Scott Drummond comes to mind as chief example. Once the party moved towards liberal ideas of desegration, where do those conservatives PRO-SEGREGATION moved to?

    You guessed right, like Scott Drummond, they all moved to the Republican party.
    Which party has members opposing the excarcelation of Nelson Mandela?
    You guessed right, the Republican Party was the one with influencial figures, like Dick Chenney oppenly opposing the excarcelation of Nelson Mandela, on the basis ,that regarless of his innocence -he was a political prisioner, remeber?- , to let him walk free would incite riots and all kind of racial warfare.

    Well, no matter the fact that the Republican party s in 1860 championed the fight against slavery, the Republican party, as of 2012, has leading members playing the role of Apartheid advocates

    Now you understand why the current slavery apologists are all members of the GOP, right?

    Regardless of where the Party stood in 1860, unfortunately its socio-economic positions shifted, and the GOP of 2012 is not the same party lead by Lincoln anymore.

    On the same tune, all your other points are flawed, ill-thought and half baked.

    I know the artist who drew a couple of those panels and the company that published them…I find it difficult to believe that either the artist or the publisher (who both earn royalties from the use of the images) would approve of this.

    That Sell guy needs to resign. Hes a puke. I love Obama. Hes the president. Where is his respect. He worked hard for it.

    Plz. Let’s be civil and intelligent and listen to Truth Teller because he is one of the only people on these message boards that makes any sense in the least. Also I wish to bring up the fact that Democrats and Liberals wish to STEAL your hard-earned money to pay for the hobo under the bridge’s alcohol and drugs. Also I condemn republicans due to corruption because power corrupts all and I do believe that this….picture is way overboard on violence. So I repeat myself once again to all of you watchers and liberals and republicans out there. Everyone in office, republican and democrat, is corrupt.

  • Mark says:

    Too Conservative? This sounds like a liberal site for the brain-damaged. So what is it that Obama and his administration have done that merits any respect? He lies to the American people all the time, steals our money, sues other states for enforcing their own laws, refuses to prosecute members of the black panther party for voter violations from 2008, ruins the economy, terrorizes business with massive regulation, threatens others to move their manufacturing base overseas, Oversaw the first downgrade in our nation’s history…and more…and he does all this with a smile on his face and gains much pleasure from the evil that he does. He certainly is NOT legit, did not EARN this promotion, has NO experience for this job and HATES America.

  • Mark says:

    @ TruthTeller-V.2.0: You’re An Idiot !! You are definitely a progressive-lib out to spread misinformation as usual.
    Your bag of nonsense might sound good until someone who knows what they are talking about comes along.

    The democrats are traitors to America. They went communist 60+ years ago. They founded the KKK, they are the party of racism, slavery, the party of treason.

    You say…..
    “Regardless of where the Party stood in 1860, unfortunately its socio-economic positions shifted, and the GOP of 2012 is not the same party lead by Lincoln anymore.”

    So with Obama, the demoncrats are the party of marxist-muslims? Do you know your pres Obama thinks Lincoln founded the Repub party?

    “On the same tune, all your other points are flawed, ill-thought and half baked.” Take your own medicine bub !!

  • Bill Thayer says:

    Mr. Obama is our President, and no one should be suggesting him shot in the head. But other than that, the cartoon is well within old American traditions: our Presidents are not kings, and this is fair speech, if a bit on the tacky side (even if Nancy Pelosi looks better here than in real life). Anyone who’s seen the horrible cartoons of Jackson and Lincoln and other early presidents has no problem with this.

  • Adrian Vance says:

    Mr. Obama is our President. He got there fair-and-square by Affirmative Action as we needed absolute proof it is a rotten idea. The only problem is that proving it invalid has come at a very high price. I have personally lost $1.2 million in this Greater Depression.

  • Gone Blue says:

    Why didn’t LCRC denounce this on their website, apologize as a collective group? To blame it on one person, not the elected official and other supporters that should know what is sent out by their group implies guilt by association. Actions speak louder than words; “sorry” doesn’t cut it.
