(UPDATE: I understand the Latino book is not anti-Latino, but in fact debunks anti-Latino prejudice. Fair enough. But I’m still looking forward to the RNC’s explanation for including “bondage,” “anal,” and “clitoris.” )
It’s not very often the boys at AMERICAblog get to type the word “clitoris” in a political blog post, but thanks to Michael Steele and the headquarters of the Republican party, today is that special day.
Forget that copy of Playboy, kids, you don’t need to go any further than your local RNC.com Web site. Of course, in all seriousness, it’s far worse than that – the Web site of the Republican National Committee is also promoting literature that is overtly anti-Semitic and anti-Latino.
It all started when earlier this week the GOP started promoting it’s new Web site, http://www.gop.com/obamacard/. The site is supposed to showcase how much money President Obama is supposedly spending by letting you, the visitor, spend money too on your new “Obama credit card.”
Just what products does the RNC propose you buy with your new Obama credit card? Anti-semitic, anti-Latino, and overtly pornographic literature – with pictures to boot.
Basically, the RNC site is set up as a faux online business, like Amazon.com, where you can buy goods by doing word searches. Search for the word “car,” for instance, and you get pictures of various cars and how much you can pay for them with your ObamaCard.
But don’t stop there. Do a search for products dealing with the word “Jew” and the RNC suggests you buy the book “The Jews and Their Lies” (bottom left).
Type in “Latino” and get “The Latino Threat.”
But the real fun starts when you type in the word “gay.”
Gay, you see, is banned by the RNC (at least they haven’t lost their sense of irony). “Homosexual,” however, is a product you can buy at the RNC site, and oh what they showcase with that word (note the two men in the upper left corner – perhaps they’re just very close friends, like Lindsey Graham and Aaron Schock).
A few other fun words you can search for on the RNC Web site…
And if you have the time, try “boob” and “clitoris” too – you won’t be sorry. But don’t try “vagina” – Republicans ban vaginas. But you already knew that.
