Virginia GOP Has Serious Issues, Including a Pronounced Tendency Towards Racism: Barack Obama Official Portrait Edition


WTF is this crap from the Sully District (Fairfax County) Republicans??? A few comments on Facebook sum it up pretty well (see below). Also note that the Fairfax County GOP is also home to Fredy Burgos…yeah, this guy. Let’s see how long it takes VA GOP Chair John Whitbeck to move against the Sully District GOP for this racist garbage. As always, not holding my breath.

“They absolutely HATE HATE the fact that Obama had no scandals, no drama during his 8 years. Meanwhile, a year into this clown’s term, we have four people indicted and a full-blown investigation. They can’t stand that!” – Lola Arce de Quintela

“Yet another illustration that Republicans are a bunch of racists, including in Fairfax County. No wonder Kyle McDaniel left the GOP in disgust.” – Jayant Reddy

“In one picture they let us know how they feel about communities of color. I had to say something to them but it is probably deleted by now.” – Donte Tanner

    The Republican Committee in Fairfax has long been known as a group of white supremacists.

    • Kinda like the Republican committee in PW County, eh?

    • notjohnsmosby

      Thankfully there are only a few dozen of them at this point.

  • James McCarthy

    Just chalk it up for reference. It’s just one more example of radical right hate and desparation. President Obama needs no defense. The right wing slime is testimony to success.

  • Harry

    Lowell, well, with Corey Stewart’s new best friends being white supremacists, neo-nazis and pedophiles, I suppose you are correct.

  • Pat Hynes

    I think any elected official who has received support from the Sully GOP should call this out. Silence is acquiescence with something this malevolent.

    • Agreed.

    • old_redneck

      Republicans call out another Republican for being a bigot? You must be joking. Never happen.

  • Fairfax County Democratic Committee Chair Dan Lagana:

    The Virginia GOP strikes again. This is transparently racist and absolutely repulsive.

    Furthermore, in the immediate aftermath of the “religious test for leaders” scandal and a bizarre and poorly conceived attack on the Fairfax County Sheriff, the Fairfax County GOP and Sully District Republicans thought it was fit to post this racist garbage. #maga

    Allow me to remind everyone of something.

    Reagan was born and reared in Illinois. He want to California to seek his fortune. In 1980, after he was nominated as the GOP Presidential candidate, he had to make his first speech as the candidate.

    Where did he make that speech:
    1. In Illinois, celebrating mom, home, and apple pie, or,
    2. California, celebrating opportunity.

    Answer: It’s a trick question. Neither. He made his first speech as the candidate in Neshoba County, Mississippi — home of Philadelphia, MS, scene of one of the most heinous lynchings of the civil rights era.

    And that, my friends, is all we need to know about Republicans.

    Reagan’s speech at the Neshoba County Fair.

    Schwerner, Chaney, and Goodman murdered

      and keep in mind that when he gave that speech praising “States Rights’ the murders of Chaney, Goodman, and Schwerner had been just 16 years before. If you think “well, that was a long time before!” keep in mind that 9/11 was 16 years ago. Not exactly ancient history.

  • John Farrell

    What does Tim Hugo have to say about this?

    Tom Wilson, are you ok with this?

    How about John Cook?

    Or Pat Herrity?

    Elizabeth Schultz, denounce this, today!

  • Fairfax County NAACP President statement:

    The decision by Fairfax County Republican Party and the Sully District Republicans to post the unmistakably racist caricature of President Barack Obama in a prison uniform on their social media page must no go unchallenged. It was unfortunate that President Obama was subjected to the repulsive and racist treatment that he was throughout his tenure in the Oval Office, but to see those reprehensible actions persist and promoted even today by our local Republican Party is deeply troubling. The Fairfax County National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) demands that it be removed immediately. In addition, we demand an open apology be issued to the African American residents of Fairfax County. The residents of Fairfax County deserve political parties that maintain a high level of decency and civility. We deserve parties that seeks to unite our communities, and promotes healthy exchanges of ideas. We deserve parties that recognize that perpetuating negative stereotypes and race-baiting only serve to further agitate our already charged environment, and increases tension among our impressionable youth. We deserve better!!

  • Diana Rhodes

    I cannot believe the Republicans of Ffx County and Sully would post this! They are horrible people. Racist, nasty trash.

    • Yeah, sadly not surprising they’d post this….

  • Diana Rhodes

    In addition, how can they honestly believe that THEY are Christians? No true Christian ever acts like this!
