They want you to think they are above playing race games, pitting stereotypical, helpless young white people against just as stereotypical, violent black people
The GOP is lying right to your fuckin’ faces…
They almost got away with it this time.
We were all horrified to hear the story of 20 year old Ashley Todd, a young supporter of John McCain.
According to the tale, Ms. Todd, while attempting to withdraw $60 from an ATM in Pittsburgh, PA, was robbed.
The perpetrator of the crime was said to be a tall black man.
He apparently approached her, took her money… and upon viewing Todd’s pro-McCain bumper sticker, beat her into oblivion… even going so far as to carve a “B” onto her face…
… Just let her know that she was being punished for being a McCain supporter.
The media, of course, jumped all over this.
So did McCain’s campaign.
They were happy as hell…
In fact, Senator McCain’s Pennsylvania headquarters immediately went into spin overdrive, releasing details of the attack to the press- even before the police could verify them.
How scary… a helpless young white woman… ostensibly minding her own business… attacked by a scary knife-wielding black mad man who was intent on exacting his radical politically motivated reverenge by way of carving a “B” into her face, representing the first initial of his presidential candidate’s name.
Are our children safe?
Shall we “pro-Americans” begin locking our doors at night?
Not only do we have scary terrorists on the loose… supported by none other than that black-ass liberal… but now we have scary black thugs doing the bidding of “That One”!
Oh, the horror!!
The whole story…
From Ashley Todd’s being robbed at the ATM to the backwards “B” that was carved into her cheek…
… Was a lie.
There was no black man…
… Hell, there was no crime.
Political attack my ass.
The only political attack occuring in Pittsburgh that night was the attack the GOP launched against Barack Obama.
In Ashley Todd, McCain supporters thought they’d finally found their (r)ace in the hole.
She is currently being held in county jail, pending a mental evaluation.
In other words, she’s crazy as a loon.
She’s been charged with making a false report to police.
She’s the scary one… She’s the unhinged one… She’s the one who just ain’t right…
… It’s not Barack Obama.
