Tea Party Group Compares POTUS to a Skunk

Patriot Freedom Alliance, a Hutchinson, Kansas Tea Party group, is coming under fire for making a racially-tinged Obama skunk reference. An offensive illustration comparing President Obama to a skunk was posted on, the website of the group, with the caption: "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."

It was removed from the Patriot Freedom Alliance web site after being highly criticized for its racially charged message by the NAACP.

Local newspaper the Hutchinson News reported that Thomas Hymer, who maintains the web site, defended this message saying: "It's satire is what it is. Satire in a politically incorrect form."

Area NAACP president Darrell Pope told the paper that the caption attacking President Obama is "a blatant statement of racism[...] intended to be malicious."
