My friends over at Stop the ACLU have have been discussing the New Yorker cover picture depicting Presidential contender Barack Hussein Obama, Jr, in a turban, fist-bumping his gun-slinging wife with an American flag burns in their fireplace here and here.
Of course, the New Yorker says it’s satire. The left says it is evil, racist, and a low-blow smear campaign. The right is having a good chuckle and probably will have a good time with the pix.
According to Politico, The Obama campaign is condemning as “tasteless and offensive” a New Yorker magazine cover. The Obama campaign quickly condemned the rendering. Spokesman Bill Burton said in a statement: “The New Yorker may think, as one of their staff explained to us, that their cover is a satirical lampoon of the caricature Senator Obama’s right-wing critics have tried to create. But most readers will see it as tasteless and offensive. And we agree.”
The way I see it, this may be well orchestrated plan to place their Messiah completely into victim status.
The Jesse Jackson gaff that was leaked after a FoxNews show was directed at white liberals to facilitate them to see that Obamination in a down trodden colored liberal who they (the white liberals) can flock around in guilt to support. Lets face it about 80 - 90% of Black America will vote for Obamination regardless of what Jackson says or doesn’t say.
The continued notion that Obamination is a victim has been running the leftist circuit for months. Heck, Bill and Hillary Clinton openly victimized Obama and took the focus off the Messiah of the leftist party. They wittingly or unwittingly contributed to his success.
Well, the New Yorker is now painting Obamination as a victim. There has been so much speculation about radical and islamic ties throughout the whole campaign process so far. I suspect this is designed to rally the Left and Liberal base and help distract them from Obomination's counter gaffs.
Jonathan Raban in the British paper Guardian Unlimited has a good piece about American Politics How US politics got personal
US voters don’t want to hear about Iraq, terrorism and the fallout from 9/11. Instead, they want to talk about identity - race, religion and the glass ceiling. But how long can this holiday last?
Yes, the Sorros dominated left Obama for President machine is really good. They are working overtime facilitating fresh ideas, AND, duping and running circles around the American public. What we have is a junior senator with almost no experience other than being a community activist associated with ACORN and an black nationalist church running for President of the United States, the highest office of the land. My liberal friends are falling all over themselves in supporting Mr. Change. Folks we are being manipulated and conned. The cartoon is another way to keep the real issues off balance.
