Dear Commons Community,
The above picture of President Barack Obama depicted as a kind of zombie with a gunshot wound in the head was distributed by the Loudoun County [Virginia] Republicans in an email to its members. In an apology, GOP Loudon County Chairman Mark Sell said it was meant as Halloween “satire”.
While Republicans across the state of Virginia have denounced the picture and have offered apologies, it was an incredibly poor lapse of taste and judgment.
It is not satire but foul and incendiary imagery.
