Patriot Freedom Alliance, the Tea Party of Hutchinson, Kansas, posted a skunk on it's website with a note stating, "The skunk has replaced the Eagle as the new symbol for the President. It is half black, half white, and almost everything it does, stinks."

"It's satire is what it is," said Patriot Freedom Alliance member Thomas Hymer.

Darrell Pope, president of the Hutchinson, Kansas branch of the NAACP, said he doesn't see the humor in it and called it "a blatant statement of racism... intended to be malicious."

Tea Party supporters can tout Herman Cain all they want, Pope said, but the skunk posting is "a statement of what they're all about."

The offending statement has since been removed from the website, but here's a screen capture;

freedom of speech applies to everybody, even the ignorant. let them say whatever they want. remember the adage "better to remain silent and have others think you a fool, then open your mouth and removing all doubt." so let them keep talking. then everybody will soon realize how foolish and ignorant they are.
furthermore, skunks are cute and intelligent creatures, and, as with 90% of right wing propaganda, their statemant is also far from accurate. skunks are not even close to "half black, half white", ratio-wise. plus they are quite good at most things necessary for their survival, and only stink when threatened or attacked.
