It's been a summer of name calling, as Americans speak out in opposition to government run health care and nationalizing major industries. Opponents have been labeled unAmerican by Pelosi and Hoyer, brownshirts, a paid (angry) mob, political terrorists, and compared to the Klu Klux Klan.

Now, flyers depicting "Teabaggers" as KKK hanging Obama were found on cars after a Townhall meeting. Ironically, the cartoonist is Mike Flugennock, a far left political cartoonist.

This Is How They See You (Image may be NSFW)
By Moe Lane, August 29, 2009

I apologize in advance for the ugly and graphic nature of the image that will be available for viewing after the fold: I would prefer not to show it, but unfortunately somebody decided that it was suitable for distribution after the Reston, VA Town Hall - and I can’t actually talk about it without showing it.

…Yeah. See also The Blog Prof, Weasel Zippers, American Power, Gateway Pundit, and Marooned in Marin: the image comes from Restonian, which is claiming a virtuous motive in removing from the flyer the URL of the group that disseminated this racist garbage - a claim which I personally don’t believe for a second, although you’re welcome to check their archives and make up your own minds. Still, even Restonian concedes that the URL that was removed from the original flyer is for an anti-Tea Party website (I screenshotted that admission, by the way); and the ‘artist’ is one Mike Flugennock, a Hard Lefty (and, apparently, a closet racist) from the area. I see no reason to pretend that it was anything except an attack on the people opposing health care rationing.

I present all of this for educational purposes, not ideological. You need to know what they think of you. Particularly when they sort of don’t want you to know what they think of you.

PS: I’d be fascinated to see the original URL associated with this flyer, myself.

PPS: The 9/12 DC Tea Party site is here.

PPPS: Slightly edited for clarity.
