Not since the last King Kong movie has our primate friends gotten so much ink in one day. The header above pretty much sums it up.
I am sure everyone has heard by now, written about, or voiced their opinion about the New York Post cartoon allegedly depicting the author of the stimulus bill as a dead monkey. Tsk tsk tsk.
Honestly, I wasn't even going to blog about this monkey, I was going to blog about the other one in Connecticut. But so many folks e-mailed me about this story that I felt compelled to say a few words. I guess this cartoonist, Sean Delonas, was trying to link the two stories in his own sick demented way, (I swear I will never understand the conservative mind. More on that later ) but judging from the outcry from black folks and certain progressives in the majority population, it doesn't look like it went over too well. Travis the chimp was shot in cold blood in front of his owner. (Poor Travis, his owner adopted and raised the big guy like he was her own. She had him for 15 years, and then she had to put the big guy down. "He looked at me like, 'Mom, what did you do?".....I am going to leave this one alone, but you all know what I want to say right?) and there was Travis in the cartoon, full of bullet holes and looking very much dead. But where is the outrage from all my pet loving friends in A-merry-ca? Where is PETA? I guess if you are a big black brute of a pet all bets are off. But was Delonas trying to connect Travis to something far more sinister and offensive, or was he just using Travis to make a political point? (Oh come on field, why would you think he is trying to link Obama to a chimp? It's not like he looks like Patrick Ewing or anything....)
You black folks are losing your natural minds, because you have no doubt what Delonas was trying to do. But my question to you all would be this: why are you surprised? Let me explain something to you: this rag is owned by my man Rupert. It is his paper version of FAKE NEWS, an outfit that I have been screaming about from day one. Some of you believe that my outrage at all things FOX is misguided, that I spend too much time lamenting about the not too subtle racism, and unvarnished journalistic bias over there. So let me ask you; do you still believe that Rupert's organization should be ignored?
Now of course, Sean's defenders and the republicans among us will tell you that this imagery had nothing to do with race, that Sean was just making a point about how stupid the stimulus bill is and that it must have been done by someone as dumb as a monkey. (Don't be so sensitive field, Obama didn't even draw up the stimulus bill. Besides, didn't you and your "moonbat" friends call George Bush a chimp and other nasty names? ) Ahh nope, not me, I would never insult a chimp's intelligence like that. But I get the point; what's good for the goose is good for the O man. So if the Post wanted controversy they got their wish. Race, politics, and violence. You can't beat that trifecta.
Of course Rev. Inc. is all over this. He is outraged and he wants an apology. Yeah okay Rev. But you will be in FOX tomorrow debating with them and helping their ratings by bloviating and showing off your wonderful perm. Totally forgetting, of course, that the paper that published the offensive cartoon and the television station that you loved to star on are owned by the same unscrupulous people.
Now to the conservative mind I told you about: I see where Michelle Malkin posed with "swastika man" and she thinks that shit is funny. See it wasn't just a swastika, it was a swastika surrounded by an "O" intended to make fun of the president. So in Michelle's world and other conservatives like her,that's cool. Forget the offensive imagery, it's all about her political statement. So the swastika, which represents a horrible time in the world's history, is just a silly side bar. Nice.
Oh well, it could have been worse I guess. She could have posed with a man holding a swastika dressed in a monkey suit.
*That pic was taken from a racist website (I think one of my racist pen pals sent it to me to make a point). And it is in no way meant to offend my man Patrick who happens to be a fellow yawdie.
