The above cartoon appeared in the New York Post earlier today, immediately giving now-Irrelevant Race-Bater Al Sharpton a massive chub:
The cartoon in today’s New York Post is troubling at best given the historic racist attacks of African-Americans as being synonymous with monkeys. One has to question whether the cartoonist is making a less than casual reference to this when in the cartoon they have police saying after shooting a chimpanzee that “Now they will have to find someone else to write the stimulus bill.” — Al Sharpton, Racist
The cartoon was, in actuality, a(n unfunny) reference to the shooting of Connecticut Celeb-u-Chimp “Travis.” Travis, who mauled and bit his owner’s friend, was executed earlier this week by a police firing squad, setting off a frenzy of angry non-existent Travis fans all over the United States and Southern Cambodia.
See, folks… the idea was that the “stimulus bill” is so retardedly stupid and damaging to the country that only a crazed chimp could’ve written it. Get it? It’s a JOKE. Even a Cave Man can do it? Even a Chimp could write it? Get it?
The Stamford, Connecticut chapter of PETA released the following outraged statement:
“We of the Stamford, Connecticut chapter of PETA are shocked. Shocked that the Stamford, Connecticut Police could actually hit a moving target.” — Stamford, Connecticut Chapter of PETA
So what does the above cartoon have to do with racism?
Al Sharpton, that’s what.
The pork-filled fascist stimulus bill was authored by Congress, not Obama. The “monkey” was actually a chimpanzee. The “chimpanzee” was actually referring to a real chimpanzee, not a black man. Please… it’s 2009, folks. Can we stop looking for racism under every white hood yet?
Until those financially vested in the business of racism (ahem) join the ranks of the unemployed and the far left stops segregating people by color, I’m afraid that racism doesn’t stand much of a chance of ever dying in this country. Let the stupidity go. (Oh, and for those who actually are racist… knock it the fuck off, already. kthxbai!)
Then again, maybe Sean Delonas really is a racist. Hmmm… I didn’t think about that.
