However, the head of the Garvin County GOP, Allie Burgin, confirmed that the flier was real, but insisted that the speakers would have "debunked" the link between the Republican Party and the Ku Klux Klan. "I feel like the GOP gets a bad rap," he said.

He did not comment on the appearance of the dancing bean on the flier.


I...

Wha....

But....

Hanlon's Razor needs to be updated to include things that can be attributed to malicious stupidity.

It's nice to know that you can meet with fellow Conservatives to learn about the KKK

Find out some things you may not know about the NRA,

IT'S AWESOME

Planned Parenthood,

Even if you scream outside their office 6 days a week, they'll help your 16-year-old daughter arrange for health care, birth control, and even an abortion (which is totally justified in your specific family's case)

Ku Klux Klan,

Hey, everyone, did you know liberal Democrat hero Robert Byrd was a Klansman? Robert Byrd! Democrat Robert Byrd! Klan! (Also, next month's monthly meeting has been moved to the Denny's on Rt 47)

and other organizations

I can't even imagine.

Yeah! I can't get outraged about racism either. I mean, I'm totally a racist so maybe that's why.
 
2014-08-07 12:00:30 PM  
this is the problem facing the modern GOP. How do you reach out to minorities when a large portion of your base can't even recognize the most blatant racist imagery?

You don't care that the Oklahoma GOP thinks it is a good idea to associate itself with the KKK? That doesn't bother you?
 
2014-08-07 12:04:38 PM  
the amazing thing is not that democrats thought it was a hoax... it's that some republicans thought the democrats created the flyer to discredit their party and then they found out that their party doesn't need help to get discredited.

I imagine the John Birch Society, AMAC, Fark Independents™, Scientology, NAMBLA, Amway and Americans for Tax Reform will all have recruitment tables in the lobby.

Nope. Because, you see, I actually read this article. And dude in the article said it was to debunk some myths and blah blah blah. Yeah, I just don't care.

Da Wife is a musicologist with a special interest in Victorian England. She belongs to an organization that meets at an annual conference, and a good time is generally had by all. This year's was at UNLV!

The organization's acronym is NABMSA.

Many lulz are had at the expense of people trying to pronounce it.

Holy... I mean, I... I just don't...

Wow.

I love how they are totally hyping that the Governor will be there and the Governor's office is saying, "No.  No way.  You have got to be out of your mind."

Honestly, I do wonder if this is just the work of a crazy person.

It's like they want to lose every election from here to eternity. Democrats really don't have to do anything but watch the GOP tear itself apart.

If your opposition thinks your campaign materials are fakes to discredit you, you are doing it wrong.

Former Okie here. This is Oklahoma, where the Democratic Party is farther to the right than Massachusetts Republicans. And the Republican Party is somewhere to the right of Genghis Khan. And they'll win just fine locally. They'll go farther to the right as the demographics change.

A flyer would be good advertising. Everyone loves Krispy Kreme Kronuts.

To give me accurate and unbiased information on PP, the NRA, and the KKK.

the strangest part is that he was never a chicago politician
The closest thing was that he was a State Senator ... meh, hardly chicago. 
I am not even sure how we elect our state senators or state reps. From what I can tell, they appear, do nothing, and get magically re-elected.

So we got ourselves a real cowboy roundup around the campfire? That's where they'll go a-ridin' into town, a-whompin' and a-whumpin' every livin' thing that moves within an inch of its life. Except the women folks, of course.
