Do you Lefties hate it that Limbaugh was so dead on right? He has called this one correctly from his first utterances on the subject. Long ago, during the early primaries, this same time last year or so, Rush said that any criticism of Obama will be objected to by the Left as racial in nature.
So now we dovetail Travis the dead Chimp, a joke of a “stimulus” by Pelosi & Reid, and a political cartoon from the NY Post.
Let’s briefly review the history of the event. Congress wrote the “stimulus.” The stimulus was objected to. Citizens called Congress in massive numbers and their voices were clear – vote NO on the stimulus. Congressional Dems and 3 Republicans completely ignored their constituency.
Here’s a few more facts: Political cartoons are a time honored tradition in the US. In said cartoons all manner of depiction have been used to lampoon the various parties and personalities. Our now retired 43rd President was depicted in every manner of lampooning possible. And guess what – he was depicted as a big eared chimp many times.
More facts: The cartoon was depicting Pelsoi and the Congress as the monkey. If we use our memories to recall facts we will see that Obama requested Congress to work on the stimulus long before he was even President. And on his first Friday in office, the 23rd of January, he even met with Congressional leaders at the White House to try and iron out some of the objections of Republicans. Anyone remember that?
So if the stimulus was written before Obama was President, and if the NY Post says the monkey was Congress, as they were the authors of the bill, then what’s the issue here? I have laid out the chronological facts, so what’s all the falderall about? Or is this just the legendary “political opportunism” in action?
Well the first issue of contention is the Dems can’t take the heat. They know this “stimulus” is nothing more than a spending package called a stimulus. Many Dems have said so themselves. But they are feigning support, despite their vocal objections, because they must stand behind their fellow Dem lawmakers.
Then there is the racial aspect to this. And this is where Limbaugh was dead on the money. He said hundreds of times that any criticism might be couched by the Lefties as “racism” on the part of Republicans. He said the Lefties would use any objection they could run with, and darn if racism ain’t a great one for demonizing your political opposition, truth to the allegation totally aside.
That’s the beauty of screaming racism or any other “ism” objection. Once ya scream the “ism” you automatically get public sympathy on your side. Ain’t it nice how that works? Anyone remember the Duke Lacrosse deal? Rich White boys raping that poor, poor Black stripper, forced by evil whitey to show her nakedness to the former slave owners? It’s White slave masters AGAIN abusing the poor Black property, right? What a load!
Anyone recall how nearly 100 Duke professors signed onto a petition excoriating the Lacrosse players saying they should be booted from school, jailed for life, crucified, drawn and quartered, etc? And they were proven wrong, weren’t they? Those players did nothing to the stripper as we now all know.
Well, here we go again. The Lefties are tapping into this racial overtone to make political mileage. They know what the cartoon was, but if political mileage can be gained, all the better. They know Pelosi and Reid authored the “stimulus.” Google it and read it for yourselves. But if the Lefties can use the flap to attack our side, truth be damned, right my touchy-feely friends?
Here’s some reality for those of you so challenged.
Obama is the President and he’s sorta Black. Politicians are lampooned in cartoons. Since Obama is a politician he is open to lampooning. Bush was depicted as a big eared monkey dozens of times. And saving the best for last, the cartoon was depicting the “killing” of the idiot author(s) of the “stimulus,” and that WAS NOT OBAMA – it was the Congress! Can those of you so dimwitted or so partisan, grasp this? Ya know, the truth.
As well, I have read objections from Black CP’s and commented on them. Let me inform some CP’s of a universal truth. Y’all ready? Now pay close attention:
Obama WILL be treated as all other politicians are treated. Equality DEMANDS EQUAL treatment. How can we be truly equal if some can take such an innocuous cartoon and use it feign racial outrage to make political hay? Or would some maintain Obama cannot be lampooned in the traditional manners because he’s Black, like using something not at all racial to gain a “leg up” in the political argument? That’s just disingenuous and a damned low blow. How will we reach racial equality with this type stupidity being forwarded?
Rush was right, just like the bumper sticker says! He was the only person in media with the gravitas and the guts to call this one on the number! And you Lefties are playing right into his hands. Are y’all so damned stupid you can’t see this?
And to my fellow CP’s, get a damned clue. If you’re a whitey like me and you jump on this bandwagon you are playing a partisan political game. And if you’re Black and you are saying this crap you are either so driven by a racial motivation that you see race as the ultimate arbiter in any Black/White interaction, or you too are playing the politics game.
Regardless of one’s race, to take something not at all racial and say it is to make racial or political mileage from it is to be demonstrating your total and complete dishonesty. Or your total and complete ignorance. Regardless, when you open your mouth and make such ignorant and totally unfounded statements, you are showing your true intentions.
Rush can think his way around you folks, even as I guess he accurately states, “With one-half of my brain tied behind my back, just to make it fair.” Huh? I always thought that was a joke. Ya mean he actually is so much more honest and intelligent than the average Lefty?
Those of you, Black or White who forwarded this as racial, are really killing your argument here, but I’ll bet you’re too deep in your self-imposed outrage to see the truth.
Ruah was/is right, AGAIN!!!!!!!!
