GOP booth sells ‘racist’ $3 Obama bills at state fair
KOMO News 4 reported that the Republican Party booth at the Evergreen State Fair in Washington was selling a “racist” $3 bill.
“The controversial bill features Barack Obama wearing a headdress, propelling a widespread myth that he’s Muslim. Some call it a joke, but not everyone’s laughing.”
“Carol Ronken is, in fact fuming over the bill which she found at the Evergreen State Fair’s Republican Party booth.”
“‘It’s racist. It’s disgusting,’ she said.”
“On the bill the words ‘da man’ are printed under his face, perpetuating the myth. Obama is, in fact, a Christian.”
“‘To make money on top of it even makes it worse,’ Ronken said. “They weren’t giving it way; they were selling it for $3.'”
