Sick: Twitter Racists React To Harriet Tubman On The $20 Bill In Grossest Way Possible

Almost on cue, as soon as the news that former anti-slavery activist and women’s rights hero Harriet Tubman would be replacing notorious ethnic cleanser President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, the internet steeled itself for the outpouring of anger and complaints coming from upset whites. Excited liberals made some excellent jokes, while white supremacists and racists in general were very displeased.

The right-wing seems to have two reactions to this new development. The first is to blame “Obama” for “pandering” to African-Americans and blackwashing history, discarding the value of Jackson’s military victories and praising him for organizing genocide against Native Americans. The second is to try to twist the narrative, painting Tubman as a “black Republican” and Jackson as a “Democrat,” even though of obviously the natures of the parties have not remained constant over the past two hundred years.

Here’s the best and the worst:
