The Apes of Wrath: Chimp=Bush, OK; Chimp=Obama, "THAT'S RACIST!"
The above cartoon appeared in a New York newspaper the other day, using the occasion of the chimp attack in Connecticut to make a comment about how stupid the stimulus bill is. Now I don't find the cartoon particularly funny, not because it uses the image of a chimp, but because the image of a chimp lying on the ground, bleeding, with bullet holes in it, is not my idea of lighthearted humor. But using chimp imagery to convey stupidity--that's nothing new.
But to gauge the reaction of Democrats, DUmmies, and the PC police--my, you'd think you're watching Muzzies reacting to a cartoon of Mohammed! Witness this THREAD, "Al Sharpton is on his way to the NY Post to raise hell about this toon." The DUmmies take the chimp as a reference to Obama, and therefore they cry--cue the gif of the black kid--"THAT'S RACIST!"
Of course, seeing their desire to squelch free speech, we could reply, "THAT'S FACIST!" (dummiespell for "fascist"). What's more, it's hypocritical! If anyone dares to compare Obama to a chimp--OUTRAGE!--yet for eight years, on a daily basis, the DUmmies referred to President Bush with names like "Chimpy McBushitler," "Chimpus Khan," "Curious George," and so on.
It's "The Apes of Wrath"! So let us now get our binoculars, approach carefully, and observe the DUmmies in the Mist, in Monkey-Butt Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, the Jane Goodall of the blogosphere, is in the [brackets]:
Al Sharpton is on his way to the NY Post to raise hell about this toon
[I am now picturing Al Sharpton as King Kong, straddling the top of the New York Post Building, holding the cartoonist in his giant paw. Is that racist?]
BOYCOTT NY POST!
[YOU SAID "BOY"! THAT'S RACIST!]
The insinuation is that the bill was very poorly written. That's all really.
[LOUSY RACIST FREEPER TROLL!]
People have to be very sensitive when making any comparisons to black people and monkeys. . . .
[But they can be completely INsensitive when comparing WHITE people to monkeys!]
It's a dogwhistle. His "base" will understand what he means. . . .
[Now you're comparing conservatives to dogs. I guess all mammals are fair game if it's about white conservatives.]
he knew he would push some buttoms. . . .
[Let's not bring benburch into a discussion about monkeys.]
I always compare a chimp to Bush, not Obama. I think I've even called him Chimp many times.
[And I've even read that in DUmmieland, like, 47,000 times. Now take the next step and see the double standard. Hypocrisy, thy name is DUmmie!]
Now look, I am not one of those people who see racism in everything. But I am no dummy. . . .
[Well, yes, you are.]
So, where's the monkey-stimulus bill connection?
[ben seeking info on how to stimulate a monkey.]
Don't people refer to a certain ex-President as the chimp?
[LOCK! BAN! DELETE! DOWN THE MEMORY HOLE!]
Calling Bush "chimpie" for 8 years hasn't helped. . . .
Obama is going to be insulted the next 8 years. . . .
[EIGHT years?? I thought Baracky Baboon was only elected for four!]
insult him because you find him unacceptable as a president NOT because of the color of his skin.
[Sounds like a plan! And if you guys can do "Chimpy McBush" for eight years, then we can throw in an occasional "Chimpy McBama"!]
