Hate speech, apparently, depends on the speaker 

This is an actual campaign flyer distributed by an actual Democrat, Chris Fitzhugh, of the Tennessee state legislature. I think this makes up for the "ban the Bible" mailer, don't you? Posted by Hello

OK, I admit it -- there's a small part of me that thinks that both this little bit of ugliness and the "ban the Bible" mailer are hilarious, but it's the part that worships this comedian (may he rest in peace), not the part that goes to church at least one Sunday a month.
CWCID: Best of the Web.

UPDATE (Thursday afternoon): Best of the Web corrects, and so shall we. It was Craig Fitzhugh, not Chris, who distributed the flyer. BOTW also acknowledges that the flyer is a rip-off of an old Internet gag, as tagged in the first comment to this post. But that doesn't mean that Fitzhugh didn't distribute the image on a flyer.

UPDATE (Friday afternoon): The Democrats are crying foul. This looks like a dirty trick.

That picture is older than the internet, except it usually says, "Arguing on the internet is like running in the Special Olympics [etc.]"
