(HUTCHINSON, Kan.) — Hutchinson's "tea party" calls itself the Patriot Freedom Alliance. Nobody would expect the group's website to say good things about President Obama. But some, including the head of the local NAACP, say the group has crossed the line.
"As far as I'm concerned it's proof of the kind of organization that they are, which I felt it always had racial overtones in the first place," Hutchinson NAACP President Darrell Pope says.
The website displayed a photo of a skunk with a caption saying: "The skunk has replaced the eagle as the new symbol for the president. It is half black, it is half white, and almost everything it does, stinks."
"You would think that an organization that claims to be about patriotism and what this country is supposed to stand for would have a better way of expressing it than what they're doing," Pope says.
