Since I started running this blog, I’ve collected any random, funny photos I’ve seen on the Internet on the off-chance that I could post it on HolyTaco. When I found the photo above of the black Hitler, I didn’t really think I would ever have a chance to use it. It was one of those, “wow, this is a photo of a small black Hitler. There’s no way I’ll ever use this, but maybe I should save it just in case.” So you can imagine how excited I was to hear about this story. According to the IndyStar.com:
FRANKLIN, Ind. (AP) — A Republican county election clerk said Friday she has apologized to two employees for distributing copies of Internet blog posting referring to Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama as a “young, black Adolf Hitler.”
The employees, who had voted for Obama in Indiana’s Democratic primary, discovered the printouts at their desks after returning from Labor Day weekend, sheriff’s Deputy Doug Cox said in a police report made public this week. One of the workers complained, and surveillance video showed Johnson County Clerk Jill Jackson placing an item on one worker’s desk at 5:27 p.m. on the Friday of Labor Day weekend, Cox said.
“She admitted to being responsible for the letter, but only did it as a joke,” Cox said. Jackson told Cox she had intended to speak with the workers upon returning to work but forgot.
However, she told The Associated Press on Friday that she did not intend it as a joke but was merely passing along to the workers an item that already was circulating around in the office, much like a fundraising order form or an interesting newspaper article.
The item does not mention Obama by name but refers to events in his life that make clear Obama is the target.
The unsigned posting urges readers to send it to everyone they know.
“The U.S. citizens are just not ready to give up their country to this young, black ‘Adolf Hitler’ with a smile, poor direction and absolutely no experience!” it said.
We take no political affiliation here at HolyTaco (we are members of the “Hate Everyone” party) but sometimes fate steps in and gives you a black Hitler photo and then a black Hitler story. It’s not politics, it’s kismet.
