Tea Party Victory Fund Airs Racist ‘Obamaphone’ Ad Claiming Pres. Obama Enslaved America

The “Obamaphone” woman appears in a racist ad sponsored by the Tea Party Victory Fund, which falsely claims President Obama’s policies have “enslaved Americans.”

Late last month, conservative media lit up with a video of an African-American woman excitedly praising President Barack Obama because he supposedly gave racial minorities in Cleveland free telephones.

The video received prominent placement on the pro-Romney Drudge Report and spawned a popular #Obamaphone hashtag on Twitter.

Although there is indeed a federal program which provides low-income people with free or reduced-cost cell phones, it began in 2008 under President George W. Bush. The idea of providing subsidized phone service to low-income individuals originated with a program started under President Ronald Reagan.
