I try not to get caught up in the two party system , It doesn't matter who the current "Marionette in Chief" is because the actual people in power don't change. I mean Obama ran against a Corpse , do you really think they didn't want him in power?.... dude comes from NOWHERE and becomes the president? C'mon
And the Peons argue over race... , or swallow whatever else the MSM feeds them.

well the joke is on them, imo, because quite frankly, I wish we had access to good witch(shamanic) doctors in America. Heck we can't even get access to a wide range of herbal medicine.

I'm pretty sure the one with Obama is racist. It is a direct play towards race.

The difference between it and the GWB pictures is that it shows GWB as being evil, a donkey and so forth. Those are things he choose to do, where as the Obama one is based only on race.

So I'd have to say the image itself is racist.

But how the media will take a thing like that and paint all kinds of people who have no association with it as racist themselves is another story.

It isn't racist, it is accurate. It would take a witch doctor to get his plan to work, and be deficit neutral.

the puppeters decided to use a different color for the puppet that time, to create a bit of diversity, and basicaly, to make us turn our attention away of their plans.

different puppet, same puppeters

Obama been elected in my opinion, to create a "oh so fresh wind of renewal" a diversion if you guys want, just keep our minds busy fighting the "race card"and not focusing of the puppeters stabbing our backs

2) He is black

Badmedia is right !

The image is CREALY racist but it will pass for outrage in the see of outrage. Some of you people one here are in such freaking denial, it's scary! But don’t insult people’s intelligence.

What makes it racist is that it is a specific stereotype usually used to reduce black people to undeveloped or tribal. Obama is supposed to be this articulate educated guy but because he’s half black , he has to be reduced to a stereotype respective to the black race. Its not a general term as to say he's evil or incompetent or socialist.
If a black protestor had a picture of McCain depicted as a "cracker redneck pig" it would be racist too.
My guess is this has to be a plant in order to confirm that the protestors are white racists because the image is so grotesque, hence, why the media chose this one to make the round. Things will go downhill after that. Those of you who think it’s just funny really have the joke on you.

The picture was created to elicit a response. If all you have in your mind is race, race-based issues, then guess what you'll see.

Lighten up. It's just a picture.

I suppose maybe myself, being a good chunk Native American, I don't see the 'witch doctor' as being barbaric, undeveloped or any other negative stereotype. Shamans, it seems, are universally revered by their perspective peoples.

I'm not saying that this picture isn't racist at ALL, just that it's no worse than Bush as a Nazi, or any of the others.

Now, if it were Obama in chains, that might be a bigger deal, but then that would just portray him as a salve, and I think most of us are slaves in one way or another anyway, so he would just be an American then.

Although each of those references would require some kind of Pop Culture background to understand.


I think Dr. Korvorkian what have been a better picture though few people would have gotten it.

Well DUH!
The picture is the instigator in playing the race card to begin with! The response it will elicit is probably gonna be bigger than you think and that's where the joke is on you. But like I always say, somebody wants it that way. We’ll see who as things unfold.

Picture is not doing anything. Who ever interprets it that way, plays the race card.

Lighten up.

Oh a Native American would most likely be portrayed that way also if it was the case and then some more racist rhetoric.

I think that when things are boiling down to a civil war, it’s not the time to take things lightly. But the point is that, somebody actually really WANTS a race war. That somebody will push it until it gets there. I’m sure some already foresee this outcome.

Concatenation my friend!

How is that racist?? Obama isn't Indian. They are calling attenting to his desire to radically change healthcare in this nation.

Native Africans have very dark skin, his head is superimposed on an Indian witch doctor.

I second this motion!

Anyway it could have been alot more racist, but it is pretty racist, but so is portraying Bush as Hitler technically, well it could be.

Too much or too little political correctness can be bad, but it's tough to strike just the right line.

But if they were trying to be offensively racist I think they could have done so easily.

I'd say this is political satire in my humble opinion.

Exactly! And get some cultural lesson with that. You always have appreciate intellectual honesty.

There were actually images of better taste that were more effective than this garbage. I can’t find it right now but there was one with a picture of Martin Luther king with the phrase: “ He had a dream, we have a nightmare”. Now that’s what I call a poignant slogan. That could actually make some blind Obama supporters take a pause. But all this racist crap will just highjack healthy political dissent.

The first thing that came to mind when I saw the picture, was a Witch Doctor stumping for his healthcare plan. We will all be falling back on voodoo and the ancient crafts if Obamacare passes in its current form.

We can argue all we want but there is only one truth and it is sovereign so not subject to interpretation. That truth will make itself very clear and don't pretend you're surprise when denial applies no more.

i starred your post. we are one people............! the race angle is to stir up strife religion ignited long ago.

i see more and more of this in atlanta..............; the racial spin. it is time to let that issue go; however, humans are carnal in nature and therefore self-centered. imho, there is no agapa love to be found where there is strife.

i like the pic 'cause it depicts obama's medicine man health care.

am i saying this right? o, well, who cares?
