The president of the California Republican organization that distributed this image, Chaffey Community Republican Women, Federated, said: “I never connected, It was just food to me. It didn’t mean anything else.”
What do we take away from this? That the people who run Republican organizations are either disgustingly racist or completely, totally ignorant and stupid.
The state party took pains to explain that these people are volunteers and not formally connected to the Party. If it were Democrats who did this, they’d be called a cell. This is how the Republicans are working this year, in a decentralized way just as — wait for it — a terrorist organization works. Cells of fanatics who do things like this, who call out racist epithets at rallies, who spread lies that are parroted… and all “unconnected” to the Party providing culpable deniability.
