Since the first day as president of the United States, Barack Obama has been subjected to the vile and ludicrous attacks ever made against the leader of this nation. The Birther myth is still alive and well, given its new advocate is Donald Trump, the man who sleeps with a copy of Hitler’s speeches next to his bed. Marilyn Davenport, a California Republican, thought it might be fun to send an email which had a made up photo of Barack Obama as a baby chimpanzee along with his dad and mom who were members of the chimpanzee family. “To my fellow Americans and to everyone else who has seen this email I forwarded and was offended by my action, I humbly apologize and ask for your forgiveness of my unwise behavior.” She went on to state that she never considered how this could be offensive. Ms. Davenport in 2009 defended the action of a mayor in California who sent a similar email. According to the contrite old lady of 74, I would never do anything to intentionally harm or offend, regardless of ethnicity.”
Ms. Davenport expressed fears for her safety, and also promised to hunt down the “cowardly person” who made public her email. I just received a communication from the Chimpanzee Alliance that it intends to urge each chimpanzee this week to spit at anyone who wears a button that indicates support for the Republican party.
