The progressive media in our country has done a pretty good job at keeping any incidents of racism or racial insensitivity committed by other progressives under raps. When we hear about any perceived incidents of racism, the left is quick to point fingers at the right without fail. They feel that because they are progressives somehow that means that it is impossible for them to be racist or racially bigoted. Well, anyone who's truthful knows that is not the case. The media can hide it's own dirt on American soil but it can't hide the acts of racism by other progressives in foreign countries. Belgium isn't exactly known as a stronghold for conservatism. It's one of the most liberal countries in Europe. The Obama's are set to visit the Netherlands Monday, so of course the progressive press there would be just as fawning and worshiping as the press here are right? Yeah, one would think that. The Belgian progressive newspaper De Morgen is under criticism for depicting Michael and Barack not as the President and First Lady of the United States but a drum roll please!
This is what the liberal Huffington Post wrote about the incident
. Their headline said
"Belgian Newspaper Accused Of Racism For Picture Of Obama And Michelle As Apes".
Of course if this very same picture came from a news paper such as the Washington Times or the New York Post or was posted on Drudge, World Net Daily or Breitbart etc, the Huffington Post wouldn't have used the word "accused", they would have said that it was racism plain and simple. What a shame. The left finally got their evidence of racism and they can't even link it to the right. They can't blame Fox News, Matt Drudge, Rush Limbaugh or any other right winger for this. It has been stated that depicting blacks as apes is a racial stereotype, but I am confused. If a liberal newspaper does it, then it can't be considered racist, because liberals say that they can't be racist right? It's not in their DNA or something we've been told. So what gives? De Morgen has issued a full page apology. The ape picture was said to have been meant as satire, but very few people were laughing. If De Morgen continues to get further condemnation over their failed attempt at satire, they can always say that that Fox News or the Tea Party is to blame, I have no doubt liberals in this country would buy into 100%
