Don't liberals understand the "art of satire"?

7-26-2008

Liberals are famous for using race as a weapon in which to attack blacks who don't subscribe to their dingbat ideology. In the case of the satire cover of the New Yorker featuring Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, it seems the chickens have come home to roost,no pun intended lol. Liberal activists have gotten their chuckles over the demeaning of several famous black conservatives and republicans in recent years. Now all of a sudden, the laughter seemed to have stopped cold a few days ago. When a picture of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas was created to make him look like a "lawn jockey", some liberals couldn't stop laughing to save their lives. When a picture was created mocking Condi Rice showing her in a military outfit saying "I'm fighting for whiteye", That was seen a comedic genius by liberals.
When a photo of Former Lt. Governor of Maryland Michael Steele was manipulated to show him as a "simple sambo", liberals were shooting milk out of their noses, it was better then Comedy Central to them. So why the laughter stopped with this cover of the New Yorker? Liberals can't take a"joke" or is it that liberals can' t take a joke when the target is one of their own? The New Yorker isn't a conservative magazine by no stretch of the imagination. It's very liberal to say the least. The satire of the cover was meant to try and portray the tactics the "right wing" was going to use or habr used against him and his wife. Well the satire missed it's mark completely, and Obama and his legion of sheep are very upset over the cover. To offended Obama supporters all I can say is "tough duck". What goes around truly does come around. The New Yorker broke cardinal rule number one in creating so called satire. The rule is to never ever ever use another liberal as the subject matter in which to demonstrate the satire. If the magazine cover showed a conservative painting a picture of Michelle Obama with an AK-47 and Barack with an Afro,,liberals would have immediately figured it out and that would have been acceptable to them. In the case of the New Yorker, the "evil republican" wasn't in the cover to clarify the message of the editor. Liberals claim to be so sophisticated, I wonder why they didn't figure out the meaning of the message the magazine was trying to communicate? Now Vanity Fair has come to the rescue of the New Yorker by printing it's own "satire" cover showing McCain using a "walker" and his wife CIndy with a handful of pills. I have yet to hear "offended " Obama supporters " come out and condemn the Vanity Fair's cover as "offensive" as well. Actually the Vanity Fair cover is truly more offensive then the New Yorker. People started to form their opinions on Michelle Obama based on her comments both past and present. Cindy McCain a long time ago had a problem with an addiction to prescription drugs, but what does that have to do with "political" satire in regards to Vanity Fair? Vanity Fair has gone to far, to them it's ok since the targets are two Republicans. With liberals, the ends justify the means of course just never when it's one of theirs being used to make the point.

Is the McCain one finally a cover? Because it started out as a cartoon, which according to liberals is not the same thing as a magazine cover, so to them it's apples and oranges. I wish I was making that up but I'm not....

I'm still waiting for the outrage on that site, and since it's an art site it is very liberal.

Obama is the sanctified one and just like Muhammad, no cartoons that show him in a negative light can be created or published.

It's enough to make me hurl...

lol, just like ribbons and medals are interchangeable to john kerry vegas lol. I don't believe that the Vaniety Fair's cover of John and Cindy will be used for publication vegas. I could be wrong, Liberals as usual miss the whole point of the cover regardless of whether its going to be published as a cover or is a "cartoon". It's the "content". They always want to overlook reality in favor of living in a fantasy land. As for the Danish Cartoons, liberals forgot that several people where KILLED over "just a cartoon". Obama became upset when he was shown in a speedo outfit with a surfboard. Obama was upset when a reporter mentioned his big ears, Obama became upset when a picture surfaced with him in a Middle Eastern or African garb. This whole thing should be a lesson to liberals vegas, I seriously doubt they learned it though.

I don't see the cover as racist because I only feel sympathy for people who are real victims of racism.

Some of the most vile racism and misogyny I've ever seen is directed at black women. Yet not too many black men call these jerks out for that bigotry! I don't wanna hear black people whining about how racist white people are when black people are mean and evil towards one another!

My mother and her sisters were mistreated because they were dark skinned women!

Yes blacks mistreating people based on how light or dark you are that is called colorism!

I find colorism to be more disgusting because some black folks enforce that poisonous ideology on other blacks and colorism is more brutal towards black women than the men!


Don't even get me started on how mean and hateful black nationalists and black liberals are to conservative or freethinking blacks in general!

Yes, I think some of the most racist people in America are white liberals!

That takes me back to 1980 when I was five years-old and had a new book: Little Black Sambo. It was one of my favorites for a while.

You sound like the kind of guy who appreciates Ward Connerly.

Back in the 1960s, during the Civil Rights Movements, most blacks were tired of seeing how other blacks were portrayed in cartoons: jet-black skin, large lips; most of these were labeled as the "Censored 11" cartoons. They demanded that these cartoons not to be shown again. They also demanded that there should be more blacks in cartoons, and should be portrayed in a positive way.
When Charles Schulz, the author of "Peanuts" first introduced Franklin in 1968, some in the community thought it was a political statement; this was shortly after Dr. King's assination. Schulz's response was that Franklin was just part of the gang.
Franklin was not portrayed negatively and hung out with Charlie Brown and they would reminisce about the tales their grandfathers told them.
However, there were members in the community that criticized saying that he was not portrayed "correctly". Whatever the heck that means.

There was the issue on the cover of "Time" magazine, when OJ Simpson was arrested for murder and they posted his mugshot on the cover.
They argued that the color tone of the mugshot was altered in a way that some members in the community found it racist.

Ward has some views I appreciate. He's more of a libertarian at heart.

Peanuts to this day remains one of my favorite comics. Charles Schulz is an American Icon and he is still missed. Your absolutely right. There was no hidden agenda by Shultz in the creation of Franklin. I can understand blacks being oversensitive on the issue of race back in sixty eight due to the decade itself. Of course they were wrong about Schulz. Forty years later, however the oversensitivity has gotten old quick.

I remember the cover. To this day I could never understand their argument. I think it is impossible to make a person look guility just by altering the skin tones on a magazine cover. A person can have a certain look or facial expression that can portray themselves in a negative light.

CB, How is a white person today going to escape the racist label. I firmly believe that global warming is a hoax invented by a bitter presidential reject.An article today by The Business and Media Institute:
Climate change is no longer just an environmental issue. It’s now an issue of race, according to global warming activists and policy makers.

“It is critical our community be an integral and active part of the debate because African-Americans are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change economically, socially and through our health and well-being,” House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., said July 29.
I am not a successful white person but reading between the lines of this article says I will pay. In reality I firmly believe that the left is purposely trying to start a race war.After all it is the left that continues to stir the ashes.

Actually mike its very easy. Whites need to stop going on the defensive when oversensitive blacks and manipulative black race hustlers use the word. When whites try to justify to blacks who used the "r" word against them that they aren't racists, the only thing whites are doing is validating to these types of blacks that they do indeed have power over them. Think about it. The only reason Jesse Jackson was able to become who he is today was due to corporations bowing down to him instead of telling him to kiss off or take a flying hike. The same goes for Sharpton and others like him.

Amazing how Americans can be so stupid to buy into an environmental farce. The very same people who sing Al Gore's praises as a savior to the world's climate in reality have no ideas of Gores lack of background on the very issue in the first place. Suckers are truly born every second.

It is strange to me that members in the black community would find something that they say is offensive. Whether it is a drawing, a satire, or even a joke itself, they would find some ways to make themselves feel like a victim.
However, these same people who would make this argument seem to have no problem when these same mediums that are directed toward a white person.
I saw a Chris Rock concert on TV one time. Now, Chris has been known to make jokes about racism. Sure, he said the n-word in his act but later in the concert he made jokes about white people. While he was joking about whites, he used the derogative term "cracker"; it was "cracker this" and "cracker that". Most people in the audience were black and were laughing. As a Caucasian it didn't bother me one bit, because I knew that it is just a joke and an act.
I turned him off, because I just didn't think he was that funny, not because I was offended because he made jokes about white people.
However, what does bother me is the double-standard that's out there. If a white comedian where to make jokes about racism and said the n-word in his or her act, he or she would be condemned on all sides that it would make his or her head spin.

I know a young black female that hates the N word regardless if it is said from another black person's mouth. She believes it is disrespectful to blacks who had to suffer from the word being used to attack them decades ago by racist whites. She's right There are blacks that feel if they change the spelling to nigga instead of nigger, its ok for blacks to use it in communication among other blacks. My fried, myself and other blacks don't see it that way.If a white person was to say to a black person "Yo whats up my nigga", that black person who was perfectly alright with his friend saying it, will be ready to punch the white guy if he said the exact same thing even with the word ending in "A" instead "ER".

Chris Rock has never been funny. Without race, he has nothing. Basically he's a one dimensional comic. A lot of black comics are just like him. A friend of mines works at a comedy club, and I normally can get free tickets. Most if not all the black comics I've seen do make fun of whites in the routine. I have yet to see it fail, however I have yet to see a white comic make fun of blacks in their routine. It could be out of fear of being called a racist. More then likely that is the case.

The not so funny thing about double standards is that they aren't fair.

When the Wayan brothers starred in the movie "white chicks", some people thought it was funny that two black guys dressed up and looked like "white blond bimbos".
When Ted Danson went to a friar's club roast dressed in black face, black groups and the media got on him hard for doing it.

If someone called you a racist, the first thing you should do is laugh in their face. Next, invite them over for dinner and ask if they like Mexican (lol).
