Im actually still trying to understand your correlation too. That wasnt a very funny "jew image" you described compared to all the bush and obama monkey pics posted. And there are quite a few good jokes about jews and swastikas and every other demograph...just not yours.

Wait, were you TRYING to make a joke?

And Ive heard black guys call obummer WAY worse than that. Some of the most racist things said about him around me came from fully black people.

You sir, should educate yourself with the real world, you know, the one outside of your pc...

Just when I thought all hope was loss for us as a Country. I really want to applaud all of you guys for putting those petty "obama-hate" feelings to the side. I am dead serious, it is cool to see people that are just "not having it". This was in very, very poor taste and very immature-whatever the cause is.

Disrespect and plain ol' ignorance at its finest.
It made my day to see you guys actually agree (with a few minor fools) on something, about someone, that catches so much fire on here.
I'm glad we know when to put the pickets down.
Kudos to everyone.


For the record linking apes to anyone of African descent is an old old weapon of racism which is completely erroneous and completely immature from Darwin to his Eugenics promoting cousin. Some of you still subscribe to this belief unknowingly. To everyone that claims that we are all suffering from a lack of sense of humor are simple insensitive, insolent cavemen who cannot see pass their own ego to determine if this may be offensive.
Laugh away........by yourself.......and when you open your eyes............ to look around, that's when we will be laughing at you.

He was trying to paint a picture for the other......... I don't see how you can get all.....whatever I did NOT take it as a joke. You can't justify peoples lack of compassion or ignorance for that matter. Let that man get out of his own whole.

I wasn't joking. I never joke around on these type of issues. I was trying to make a point and apparently it hit home. Genocide is genocide, irrespective of circumstances.

Racism at it's finest. Those that see racism in this picture. The Holocaust comparison was not a good one at all. Comparing a monkey face political satire comic to the slaughter of Jews to make a very racist point. Tsk tsk tsk

So only a fool sees no racism in a political satire comic ? That is a very narrow world view you have there to say the least.

I see pure political humor here. No racism to see here.



It's not funny and there's not much politics involved.
I could draw a short political satire comic better than this filth (and i suck at drawing)

Which reminds me - translation of the caption above the two images is literally -
Vladimir Putin is president of Russia.
He sent us this contribution upon our request,
and because not enough time - has chosen images instead of text.


1. upon our request
2. not enough time

Conclusion, they are stupid

or simply Belgium is the most unspeakably rude word in the Universe.

Your throwing that term around like that makes it okay. "political sattire with racial undertones".....Really the captions with the selling weed and the 'first black president'. Okay, look lets put it under a new light.

If its all jokey-jokey. Why an ape???? Why not anything else. That is the most disgusting and disturbing thing. Just because its "political sattire" doesn't make it okay, funny, entertaining, acceptable...
I'm honestly not here to call anyone anything.
But it is foolish to play it off as just a joke. If it is a joke, its the kind where no one laughs, which makes it NOT FUNNY OR COOL!

Here I will quote some other post for you.




It's extremely poor taste, classless, and ignorant IMO. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...





Its satire, and in poor taste, I don't know if anything more need be said. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...





Exactly, no matter what`s your opinion on Barack and Michelle Obama, I`d feel insulted if I was a black person and/or an American citizen. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...


We see where you are coming from and what your saying. Can you honestly say we are all being to 'sensitive'?

It is not funny says you and the other racist humorless people on here. Everything said or drawn about Nobama is not racist. In fact I would say most all is not racist. Again it's funny that when things were said and done about Bush nobody like you pissed and moaned about it. But I guess he had no crutch to lean on.

More to the point, what is not funny about it ? He has been pushing his horrible Nobamacare on everyone so it compares him to a drug dealer and the monkey face I already explained.

Really?
With that comment alone, I feel I am wasting my time trying to explain this to an adult. Your comments are insolent and they are the smoking gun of an undercover racist simply because you are pretending to be oblivious. You are acting like " I can't possibly see how this is racist"!!!!!!!!
You are honestly staring at this same picture I am looking at.........
Please stop with the bush comparison. He literally behaved like an ape. I know you guys hate obama but damn I think your making a wild stretch to compare him to bush. REALLY!!!!!!!!!!
I'm done.
Its not racial when it comes to bush, because bush doesn't come from a people where that is a common historical disrespectful joke.
The racist attitude has morphed into this undetectable virus!!!!Its in peoples sub-conscious mind.
Your name is Christian Voice, yet your feeling mischevious, and at the same time your a defender of the word of God, and yet this is funny?!?!?!?!

Really drug dealer and monkey face.!!!!!!?????
Its 2014 and im going to throw this at your ignorance.

All jokes aside. Peace and many blessings........A picture is worth a thousand words, and all of those words are disrespectful, and in VERY VERY POOR TASTE. BOOOOOO for belgium .

I suspect that many of the people who are upset over this image are the same people who loudly defended that Danish newspaper's right to print a cartoon depicting Muhammad a few years back.

Okay i get it but how is that funny? I feel sorry for Americans without teeth, kidneys and social healthcare for a long time now, longer than Obama being president.

Monkey face never funny, not Bush not Obama and i would get angry if someone did that to my picture.

There is nothing anti Christian about the pictures, being mischevious is not anti Christian, and I honestly do not see the racism in the pictures, but then again I do not think in terms of racism. It truly shows where your mindset is.

Danes speak their mind, to the point it becomes offensive yes, to some. In fact in Danish culture they have a term called "cosey racism", like racism is to be considered cosey. I have lived all around the world and Danes are the most stonch nationlists and (I wouldn't say open minded, more open mouthed
).

In fact their laws regarding dual nationality (it is simply not allowed), along with many laws designed to protect Danes (and prevent non-Danes), are being challenged head on in the EU. Danes are some of the shallowest superficial people in the European Union.

I certinally would not use Denmark as a good model. Free speech and offensive hate speech is a very gray and fine line, variable, depending on whom one asks.

It is a difficult thing to judge and somebody somewhere is always offended.


It could be argued on ATS there is no freedom of speech, in fact if you openly and routinely criticise America and so forth, you will eventually (and usually quickly) end up with having to make new accounts. Free speech only exists in limited amounts everywhere, until you piss somebody off that disagrees with their view.

We truly are raising a generation of sissies. People complain about bullying all over the US now and if people are offended by someone placing a monkey face onto someone as a political joke then I am beginning to understand things a bit. A generation of humorless sissies. It is no wonder that people are being prescribed antidepressants at such an alarming rate. Good grief.

I agree with you for the most part about sissies and bulllies. I really do. But when something offends an individual that is in poor taste and I exclaim my dislike for it that makes me a sissy?!?!?! What would you prefer, someone to laugh at things that are intended to be funny to toddlers.
This is ATS you can't just go all the way in on people.
This is not humor, and I wish you could go talk to your grandparents. It is completely, and utterly shameful for anyone to speak on the first family. ROFL only we are aloud to talk about them lol.
But I guess that's the lost generation you speak of.

It truly shows where your mindset is
Is it possible to think in terms of racism whatever that is suppose to mean.
A cat is a cat my friend.
We are derailing others from talking about how insane this is.

honestly thats the one thing i actually miss about bush....he looked like a bewildered chimp and we were actualy allowed to call him this (what with no social stigma about it)

more on topic if its from a satire site that somewhat explains it but still kind of surprised they decided to run with it

and fyi while not a fan of mr or mrs obama this was in bad taste and they looks no where near as much like an ape as bush did
