I don't think anyone has stated the truth yet . I scanned down kinda quick so if someone did point out the obvious I'm sorry .

John McCain was wrong, human beings are apes not monkeys . (I don't see no tail)

They are Persian and its disgraceful for a US senator to label a Persian a MONKEY.

America would probably invade Iran if an Iranian made this comment about the US president.


But its cool for the Iranian president to call americans the "white devil" and the "great satan", right?



When did he do that? When he was addressing students at Columbia University? Or was it at the United Nations? Please enlighten us.

But he'd be correct.
Like he is about his views on Is-Rael.

That's a lot better than what some of the good people in Iran would call him...not openly of course as they would be killed or jailed forever. The man is very polished...a very polished dictator and that is all. He has called those of Jewish descent worse and will again so come off your high horse and live in reality with the rest of us.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad does look like a monkey. I know some white guys that look like primates as well. I know a woman that has a horses face ect I mean if you do not believe in evolution you might be offended, if you are a religious zealot you might call it blasphemy. But we came from primates according to science. Now if the shoe was on the other foot and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called the president of Israel a baboon im sure some people would cry anti-semitism foul! And if he called ol John a lemur people would laugh, but again this the ol race card. It was and is offensive to african Americans , but they are far from Persian.

Id bet there is a anti American sub agenda behind the race thing with most. I mean we have a lot of anti American sentiment out there that would love to spin this thing as some form of biggotry. It is unprofessional for John McCain to make that remark though on any level it's playground talk, talking sh1t! then again none of our politicians have any shame any more anyway. Not very diplomatic.

You just insulted P.O.W's everywhere. Shame on you. FYI he was shot down, it happens regardless of your training or skills. I dont even care for the man and his politics but his service and being captured and tortured is something entirety irrelevant


Oh the ignorance of some people

US Senator John McCain used his Twitter feed today to call Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a "monkey."



John McCain ‏@SenJohnMcCain
So Ahmadinejad wants to be first Iranian in space - wasn't he just there last week? "Iran launches monkey into space" news.yahoo.com...

www.twitter.com

John McCain has called the President of Iran a monkey. This is absolutely disgusting behavior by a US senator. Tweeting racist jokes about the President of another country.

How dare he racially abuse the President of another country. All hell would break out if Ahmadinejad spoke like this about the US president.

McCain is trying to pass off this racism as a joke and still hasn't bothered to remove the offensive remarks,

This is outrageous ! I can see somebody saying that he looks more like a Chimpanzee, but not some monkey, and besides, who can blame him for wanting to be shot into space like a monkey ? I just don't see why we can't help him do that.

He does not run that country, Clerics run Iran. He is just the mouthpiece for them. He is in a sense a trained monkey. He is extreme with a hint of "nice guy". I wonder if everyones thoughts were made public if any of us would be found to be free of prejudice/racism. I think we all know we are prejudice to one degree or another. Feigning disgust at this little joking jab is naive.

The sad thing is, both countries would be better off with monkeys running them. Monkeys dont use money, dont pollute the air and water, they dont build weapons that threaten thier very existence.

Something to be said about bein a monkey. (end sarcasm)

McCain is a senile old man,we should expect better than this from our elected leaders but if this is going to be accepted as the norm then we don`t need educated leaders we can just drag some bums out of the gutter and put them in office as our leaders and the bright side is we would only have to pay them half as much as we pay the current leaders.

I'd disagree on both counts. He's a human being and intelligence is relative. This guy has alot of knowledge. How much is radical knowledge is debatable. There are many threads here on ATS suggesting that weather control is practiced by the US and used as a weapon against perceived ennemies. Are these those folks "not that bright"?


Do you really want to debate the intelligence levels of the average conspiracy theorist?

Good god you sensitive thing you..

Dinnerjacket does look like a monkey.

So what? Nothing racist about it... I didn't know that even white people could be offended by such a comparison.



Many humans, regardless of skin colour and whatnot, look like monkeys/apes - why is that so hard to believe? Does it not only further prove the evolutionary theory? Darwin himself and Galton his cousin also looked like apes/monkeys...


Racism is rarely what's spoken, but often the context in which it's spoken. While McCain's comment could be confused as racist to some, it's more of an insult to Ahmadinejad's appearance than his race. The guy DOES look like a monkey, especially with the way he grows his facial hair. Regardless of race, McCain insulted the man; a politician should not publicly insult the figurehead of another nation.

McCain is a dumbass.
