For those that have a vested interest in keeping phony race issues alive, the uproar over a cartoon published by the New York Post has provided fuel that they apparently hope will keep the issue on life support.
Ignoring the fact that huge swaths of white voters cast their ballot for Barack Obama in November, perpetual victim advocacy groups such as the NAACP have called for the firing of the cartoon’s creater, as well as the editor. For those who may have not seen the cartoon in question, it depicts cops shooting, ostensibly a chimpanzee, although monkey has been bantered around as if they were the same thing. One of the cops in the cartoon is exclaiming that They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.
The cartoon was insensitive in that it was actually referencing a woman that had been attacked by a pet chimpanzee earlier in the week. What groups like the NAACP, the nightmarishly racist Al Sharpton and others either do not understand or do not want you to understand is that Obama did not write the stimulus bill. That is the role of congress (see civics 101). The quantum leap from congress was a bunch of wild monkeys that needed to be disposed of to Barack Obama himself was being compared to a monkey is the argument of these old race hacks, that see their power dissolving, an (unintended?) consequence of what many see as the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. They may be half right in their assertion there. The fact that Obama is half white is 100% correct, and I’m sure most whites wouldn’t take kindly to being referred to as sub-human.
Congress was the target of this cartoon though, and these old, dying racists know it, and, like the dinosaurs, are trying to find a way to stay relevant.
As Don Meridith put it on the old Monday Night Football..”Turn out the lights, the party’s over…” The party is over for these victicrats, killed by their own sword…
