KOmmie Heads Explode Over New Yorker Obama Cover

A vicious rightwing magazine published a cover featuring militant Muslim Barack Obama and his AK-47 toting wife fisting bumping as an American flag burns in the fireplace. OOPS! It wasn't an EVIL rightwing magazine that had this cover but the very LIBERAL New Yorker magazine. But don't worry. The left will somehow manage to blame this on those wascally Republicans. Meanwhile over in KOmmieland, KOmmie heads are exploding as you can see in this THREAD titled, "The New Yorker Obama cover: OMFG, WTF?" So let us now watch the KOmmies explode in bloody Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, wondering why the New Yorker did not include a cigarette in Obama's lips, is in the [barackets]:


Anybody got any opinion on this new New Yorker cover?

[Hilarious! But not as FUnnie as your reaction to it.]

I got one: OMFG! I'm sure it's some kind of joke right? There's no other ulterior motive to publish cartoons like this right? They got the new McCain Manchurian Candidate cover lined up for next week right?

[John McCain is the kindest, bravest, warmest, most wonderful human being I've ever known in my life. ]

This is disgusting. Might be worth cancelling a subscription or two.

[Or zero since you read the New Yorker FREE on the web like the rest of us.]

This is an encouragement of every dark, racist, ignorant, and violent impulse that Obama's candidacy has inspired in the hearts of a presumably small number of Americans. Blitt and the New Yorker better pray every day that no act of violence is directed at Obama in this campaign. If it is, they will be culpable.

[Then you WON'T be blaming evil rightwingers with blood on their fingers?]

Since this is coming from a "liberal" publication, what this does is provide an opening for the right wing to discuss these same memes again and again, thereby amplifying them and distracting the media from the real issues of this campaign, not to mention distracting us from the deep problems with John McCain.

[Is it okay if we just laugh about it?]

I know that the New Yorker targets its image at a certain kind of smugly self-congratulatory clique within the "chattering classes," and the editors probably think that for this reason, it can't possibly do any harm, but this is ridiculous. Most people perusing the newsstand won't have enough time to digest the irony; it will effectively reinforce the subconscious connections that right-wing whisper campaigns have been trying to promulgate for months.

[Most people NEVER even see the New Yorker but your whining is now making them curious.]

the Goopers and Freepers will use this diary and others like it, and the responses in the thread, to yack on and on about how the lefty blog world overreacts to stuff like this. As if they wouldn't go five times as overboard if it was caricature of their candidate.

[Hee! Hee!]

I have no doubt that we will see the GOP at its lowest in this campaign.

[Even though it hasn't happened and this cover appeared on the cover of a LIBERAL magazine.]

PLEASE let some right wing asshole bring up this cover..PLEASE PLEASE. Y'all will want to see my Republitard education on Pay-Per-View. LET those RWF (right wing f*ckers) feel 'brave' and bring up some some Obama myths.

[Naw! We'll just laugh watching YOU bring up the Obama New Yorker cover.]

This cover is an absolute DISASTER for Obama, as some type away it isn't a big deal. Mercy...

[And the FUnniest thing is that the cover appeared on a LIBERAL magazine.]

If the cover gets non-stop coverage on the networks and cable news channels for all of next week, then sure, I'd be prepared to say it's a disaster on that magnitude. But I somewhat doubt it.

[It's already THE hot topic of the Web.]

Is Rove behind this?

[Congrats on being the first KOmmie to pin this on Karl Rove!]

Burn every magazine that dares print a viewpoint that might harm your candidate! Because if you don't, there's NO WAY he can win November! Run in fear! The Republicans are coming with silly pictures! Hide the children! Don't let the American people see!

[Do I hear Chicken Little clucking in the background?]

Time for Daily Kos Community To Mobilize a boycott that CRIPPLES the New Yorker.

[Cancel BOTH your subscriptions.]

I think they should be shut down. f*ck 'em. And I've read it my whole life. this is intolerable. They are off the rails. Time for an adveriser boycott.

[DUAC! DUAC!]

i think we should cripple the new yorker.

[Kneecap 'em!]

So. Without even considering the alternatives, these brain trust candidates would crush free speech based on their first glance.

Doesn't this drawing illustrate that dimbulb Fox newsbimbo's description of the Obama's fist-dap as "a terrorist handshake" or something? Couldn't this be a scathing parody of what the Left perceives the Right is making their candidate appear to be?

Did anyone actually read a printed word?

No? Why? Too many syllables?

I have to say I agree with the one moonbat's assessment of the rag's readeship, aside from leaving out the phrases "Intellectually inbred," "Myopic," "Thunderingly trivial."

Once again, disent is NOT allowed on the left. Toe the mark or ELSE shut em down. Period.

You know, I had Illinois Nazis but I've NEVER suggested that they not be allowed to parade around, march and spew their filth. Same thing with the KKK. I'm also more than happy to see the DU/DK idiots spout their BS.

An enemy you can SEE is much easier to defeat unlike those lslamofacists folks like CAIR who are QUITE adept at hiding their true agenda from view.

Besides, it IS all one giant Rovian plot anyway :) -tm

The Kosites have finally proven my contention that Lefties are too stupid or too humorless (probably both) to understand satire.

It's no secret that the New Yorker is a Democrat organ; but which Democrat Presidential candidate does the NYer support? Was this cartoon inspired by Rove (the Left's all purpose ogre) or by Hillary? Gee, what a poser!

For myself, I'm going to buy this issue of the New Yorker, remove the cover, laminate it, and put it in the back window of my car.

By the way, besides being stupid and humorless, the Lefties are no friends of free speech, e.g.

"I think we should shut them down. f*ck 'em."

"i think we should cripple the new yorker."

etc., etc.

"I think, i think" No, very little thinking go on over at Kos; just knee jerk reactions; but's it what you expect from communist and Stalinist wannabes.

Yes. Despite everything else, that is what it was meant to be, a parody. I challenge any of you reactionary dimwits to prove differently.

How about this? Let's say that one way of going after things like the Muslim stuff and the birth certificate stuff, and the terrorist greeting gestures, and super scary militant wife, is making it obvious it's frigging ridiculous.

Some people get it, some don't. I'm pulling for those who do.

Then I guess you on our side, right? But we all know that's not true.

Your fellow liberals are upset and make calls to "Mobilize a boycott that CRIPPLES the New Yorker" and say that it "Might be worth cancelling a subscription or two " yet you call US "reactionary dimwits." I would call that projection.

Idiot. That's all we ever said it was. It was all you hysterical ninny, Stalinist wannabes that are consumed with mindless panic because you know how close to the truth it is. And you know it will resonate.

Now go inflate your Osama/Obama date doll. Cunt.

Hey t-man,

Thanks for explaining the obvious. Now go over to Kos and explain it to those knuckleheads.

We here at DUfunnies knew it was a parody; it was your fellow dolts at Kos who were too dense to realize it.

If John McCain is the nicest person you've ever met in your life, then I guess it's fair to say that he didn't call you a c*nt, too.
