A Real Monkey For Ya… Al Sharpton Goes Apes#*t: "My People, My People.."

H/T Tim Blair         

The Puff Ho screams “me too, me too:”    Most provocatively, it compares the president to a rabid chimp. Either way, the incorporation of violence and (on a darker level) race into politics is bound to be controversial.”

Racist! Racist! Racist! The New York Post is accused of running a racist cartoon: 



The monkey deal relates to a crazed Connecticut chimp incident. Prominent hucksters nevertheless take offence:

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

In fact, recent history reveals that US Presidents are synonymous with monkeys. The Guardian‘s Steve Bell spent most of George W. Bush’s two terms portaying him as an ape – which, incidentally, the Post‘s cartoon doesn’t do to Obama.

UPDATE. This is rich. Britain’s leading monkeytoon journal joins the complainers.


                            Al Sharpie rubs it…

Curiously, the left never had a problem with this:


So lets see the Obamessiah depicted like this. That might get the ball rolling… We definitely need some balance…

  1. “…… African-Americans as being synonymous with monkeys.”

    Fact is, if you believe in Darwinian Evolution (I don’t) then you would believe this to be true – that Africans are closer to primates than white men. Hitler believed this BTW.

    Oh, and Mohammad said the black Africans were “raisin heads”
