A photograph of a bumper sticker that features racist, anti-Obama language has gone viral on Facebook and other social networks.
The sticker reads “Don’t Re-Nig In 2012,” in large white type, above smaller text that reads: “Stop repeat offenders. Don’t re-elect Obama!”
The offensive design appears to have originated at a site called Stumpy’s Stickers, where it can be purchased. The site sells variations on the same idea, including another “Don’t Re-Nig” design featuring a caricature of a black man’s face with a missing tooth, a picture of a chimp that reads “Obama 2012,” and another with a drawing of several Ku Klux Klan members that reads “The Original Boys In The Hood.”
Perhaps, having lived through the 2008 election and, like many people, read Mark Halperin and John Heilemann’s book Game Change less than a year later, you might feel that reliving the events of that election cycle a third time by watching the HBO film Game Change is a bit more than you can be prevailed upon to bear.
If so, then the clip below is just what you need. Comedian Joe Mande has been kind enough to watch Game Change for you and condense the whole business down into a tight, neat 43 seconds. Enjoy!
