As news spreads across the country exposing Republican racist roots, we have our local GOP crawling out from under those same rocks. GOP posted an insensitive, tone-deaf cartoon on the DougCo GOP Facebook page. The cartoon depicts the former president in a courtroom next to an angry, loud caricature of New York DA Alvin Bragg. Mr. Bragg, who is Black, holds open his briefcase containing a banana as his “evidence.”
Not only is the cartoon blatantly racist, its publication calls into question the maturity and historical understanding by some Republicans. America is supposed to be better than this. The GOP are no patriots and lack insight into the ideals of our Constitution.
