Playing on the word renege, which means to go back on a promise, undertaking, or contract, according to Merriam-Webster, the ever-hateful anti-Obama masses seem to have come up with yet another way to disparage not only the President, but also African Americans.
Circulating on Facebook, a picture of a bumper sticker, reading, “Don’t Re-Nig In 2012,” (pictured left) is making feverish rounds. While Obama’s iconic red, blue, and white logo is crossed out, the bumper sticker makes it very clear that Obama opposers are going above and beyond the idea of just being against Obama politically.

More to the point, the word Re-nig, which, we’re sure the architects of the message thought was a clever play on the aforementioned word renege mixed with the word n*gger (LOL!), takes the anti-Obama sentiment to a whole other level.
According to Technorati, this slogan originally appeared on a T-shirt on a website called “Zazzle.com” back in 2010. The website sells customizable T-shirts, mugs, and other paraphernalia. The author of the slogan, reportedly called “XUBERALLES,” took his name from the Nazi slogan “Deutschland Uber Alles” or “Germany Over All” — so you already see where this is going. Back then, there was a backlash to the shirts and the subsequent Facebook page that cropped up last year.
I guess folks thought it would be even more creative to resurrect this pithy message on a bumper sticker….
While many a racist — at least those who would actually know what renege means; after all, we wouldn’t want to go around making assumptions — is sure to get a hearty laugh at this one, the real truth is that displays such as this, whether real or photoshopped, show why Republicans have increasingly been tagged as the party that is also against women, gays, immigrants, the poor, and really just anyone who doesn’t look like … the sexy John McCain (pictured above)
Good luck with the 2012 presidential election, GOP! We’re guessing your party is going to need all the help it can get, since most of your supporters will be unable to crawl away from their walkers and nursing homes in order to vote.
