Cartoon seems to link Obama to dead chimp

New York Post is standing behind cartoon some consider racist

NEW YORK - The New York Post is standing behind a cartoon that some have interpreted as comparing President Barack Obama to a violent chimpanzee gunned down by police. The cartoon in Wednesday's Post by Sean Delonas shows two police officers standing over the body of a bullet-riddled chimp. One of the officers says the other, "They'll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill."

Civil rights activist Al Sharpton called the cartoon "troubling at best given the historic racist attacks of African-Americans as being synonymous with monkeys."

Finally the first example of racism being used as an argument to quell any satire/criticism directed to the new prez arrived.

More from the "we have Obama" folks is coming. That would be interesting to see how the freedom of speech guarantees would fair against the attacks from the part of population that just can't comprehend certain principles.

I missed the thread. I should have checked carefully, coz the topic is too juicy to go unnoticed.
