Hutchinson Tea Party Website Draws Criticism

KSCB News - December 12, 2011 8:20 am

A Hutchinson tea party group says its depiction of a skunk as the new symbol of the U.S. president is satire and people don’t have to look at it if they don’t want.

Patriot Freedom Alliance says on its website that like the president, the skunk is "half black, half white, and almost everything it does stinks."

Local NAACP president Darrell Pope sees no humor in the depiction, which he calls a blatant statement of racism.

Local tea party supporter Chuck Sankey says former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has been the target of worse insults than what’s on the website.

Patriot Freedom Alliance meets regularly and has hosted rallies in the Hutchinson Sports Arena.
