Not cool, not cool at all. I think he sucks at his job, but that's as far as ANYBODY should take it.

Wow......just wow.

I am no fan of Obama, but this is blatant racism that should not be tolerated... How does a newspaper editor allow this crap to be published???


Its Belgium what you going to do? Invade them?


Different country different culture.

I don't have monkey ancestors, I have human ancestors. I think this is a very funny picture. If you search for racism in it I guess you will find it though. I don't get the racism though. Nobama is only part black and what does that have to do with gorilla faces ? I took it as insinuating that the Nobamas are dumb and do what they are told like zoo monkeys. Quit being so racist everybody.

Of course you don't. You probably believe that story about Ham and his ancestors being hewers of wood and carriers of water too.

We not only have ape ancestors but amoeba ancestors too.
The metaphor of God blowing life into the dust of earth is really a simplified version of life being made up from star dust told by advanced beings to the primitive people of our early history. There's no lie there just a simplified version of panspermia.

Not defending this, but Belgium and other parts don't have the sensitivities we Americans have on such topics. I am in quite constant casual conversation with many people from different European countries, and they just don't see the big deal. Many of them would look at this and just think it's funny, without a ounce of racist thought behind it.


So do I....Sorry if that offends someone, and I am from the USA....

I started laughing immediately and am still laughing actually....People need to find a sense of humor in things instead of being so uptight all the time!

How many times was Bush portrayed as a chimp?

When it happens to a black guy, it's automatically racism?

This is what's wrong with our country. Political correctness is just another form of racism. When we get past the notion that certain groups of people are in a "protected class", we might finally advance closer to having equality.

Here we go again, let me get those scissors as the race card has been used to it's MAX.

Bush also had several images of him as an ape and other animals. So has others before him again. But the second a half black President steps into office, it must be racism. Give me an effing break!

I'm a white EUropean and I find this deeply offensive. Whatever you think of the Obamas there's no need for this. Its bollocks.

Please answer truthfully:

Do you find it "deeply offensive" because it's a black man or because he's the President of The United States?

So what.....?
They are acting like trained pets of the bankers....


Complete with the usual organ grinder's monkey antics and tin cup begging blather . . .

and complete with the nastiness of a scorned organ grinder monkey all too eager to bite the hand that fails to cough up enough money.

And complete with all the destructiveness of a trained organ grinder's monkey who's been 'taught' to be supremely destructive when it doesn't get its narcissistic way so it begins to scratch, claw, bite and fling poo on everyone who annoys it . . . and to soil its own nest to destruction . . .

The truth hurts.

If he doesn't want depicted as an animal, he should consider stopping acting like such a rabidly destructive creature that he seems to delight in being.

He loves the perks and power and !!!CONTROL!!! but has NOT A SHRED of patriotic responsibility--except to destroy, destroy, DESTROY as his organ grinder bosses have trained and ordered him to do.

The resemblance is uncanny... Michelle/Michael actually doesn't look any different, whereas you can somewhat tell they photo-shopped Barak.

I think I'll just call it humour, leave it at that and move on.

What kind of president requires spending 10 MILLION Euros on his personal safety? That is just one half of the trip, the other half cost as much from the US side.

Not only that, look at what the people in the countries the US President et al visit have to live with (I have experienced this first hand myself once they to my country), the people are effectively BARRED from travel to areas he is in, if you happen to live in that area, you are INPRISONED in your own house, you have to get permission from the US Secret Service to enter and exit your house, WTF?

Even Colonel Gadaffi could drive down the street in Libya without all the eounterage, the people liked him, that's why. Well, with the US president doing this to our people in our countries when they visit, we don't like him either.

Keep making enemies of your so called allies Mr President. please go home.

Was this offensive to you ?


Was this offensive to you ?


Why is it offensive when it is done about a man that is half black and half white but not offensive to the all white man ?
If you go looking for racism, that is all you will find.

It's all about context. I am always amused by non-black people who try to insert a different race into the equation to justify their point.

How about this...if it were a depiction of a starving Jew behind barbed wires with a swastika on a coffee mug, would you find that amusing? Would anyone find that amusing?

Come to think of it, I can't recall seeing any swastika cartoons or depictions lately anywhere.

The only people that I always see screaming racist racist from the tree tops are Americans and Muslim extremists.

The rest of the world prefers to not knee jerk and see the joke for what it was, a characture of a president bumbling about like a chimp, same as George Bush did, nobody cried racist there did they, in fact it was accepted.

Here is a thing, I was on a business trip to America one time, and two friends / collogues with me, they're dark skined and muslim, and they saw a luggage bargin and we walked through a park and yanks were staring at me like I was a white suppremist with 2 black slaves in tow with my luggage. I cant help but look backat this and thinking, Y'ALL ARE DUMB ... yup, y'are.

I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out the correlation between a monkey face on Nobama and the massacre of Jewish people by the Nazis. What point are you trying to make and why do you assume I am not black ?
It's like a Rorschach test, what you see in the images tells loads about how you think and the type of person you are. If you see racism in that picture then I would say you are the racist.
I see pure political humor here. No racism to see here.

1. Because NOT ONE SINGLE black person calls Obama "NOBama". Not one. Not even hardcore black Republicans. Meet many people every day and as far as I am concerned that is a fact.

2. You know fully well what point I am trying to make in regards to comparing the swastika and monkey face on Obama. If you haven't spent enough time talking to qualified people or reading up on history, then shame on you. If you feel you have read enough, and STILL don't quite understand the issue, then (a) you need to spend more time living among people and walk a mile in their shoes or (2) you are just a pretentious individual looking for attention.

I am done with this. Go educate yourself and then we can discuss.

I grew up in Frayser TN, I went to a school that was 98% black. I have never looked at black people as anything but people.
