Immune to Their Attacks

SMH how white folks got Michelle with the fro and giving Barack a pound. The idiots over at the New Yorker are getting real out of pocket:

The Illinois senator is depicted in traditional Muslim garb in the Barry Blitt illustration set in the Oval Office. His wife, Michelle, is in fatigues, sporting an Angela Davis-style sky-high Afro, an AK-47 slung over her shoulder.

“The New Yorker may think, as one of their staff explained to us, that their cover is a satirical lampoon of the caricature Sen. Obama’s right-wing critics have tried to create. But most readers will see it as tasteless and offensive. And we agree,” Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said.

New Yorker editor David Remnick seemed shocked by the backlash. “Our cover … combines a number of fantastical images about the Obamas and shows them for the obvious distortions they are,” he said in a statement. “The New Yorker may think, as one of their staff explained to us, that their cover is a satirical lampoon of the caricature Sen. Obama’s right-wing critics have tried to create. But most readers will see it as tasteless and offensive. And we agree,” Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton said.

Obama brushed off the brouhaha. “I have no response to that,” he told reporters when asked about the cover, but his supporters are infuriated.

We all know how well versed our man Barack is at brushing off the bullshyte. You can always guarantee that he will show class and strength in the face of this kind of plain foolishness. Barack Obama ’08 – YES WE CAN!!!

    This is just ridiculous. I expected more out of an intelligent magazine like the New Yorker. I guess I was wrong.

    I heared this news earlier on ” Cas ual se ek . C om “. Many discreet news and discreet videos can be found on it.

    BARACK Said he WANTS OUR CHILDREN TO LEARN SPANISH, OR ELSE.

    ARE YOU SENDING YOUR CHILDREN TO LEARN SPANISH? IF NOT, THEN YOU’RE NOT A TRUE BARACK SUPPORTER.- YOU’D be JUST A FAKE BARACK SUPPORTER.

    So go enroll your children to learn Spanish IMMEDIATELY!!!

  • 2cute4u

    Its very unfortunate, but these are the type of things that Obama will have to face throughout his campaign. All of the ridicule will not be in vain, he will be the next President.

  • ThatGirlLinda

    Every since Barack has won Iowa so much racism has come out from every angle. Not just white people but even blacks who have an mentality that they don’t think he can be president. I mean look at the Black Republicans.

    OMG I cant believe they are letting this circulate. I’m with Nikki, WHY hasnt this been pulled? Far less offensive things have been published by the New Yorker and pulled…SMH @ the outlandishness

  • Crustbetweenmytoes

    The artwork is great. I’m not worried about this kind of stuff. The more the racists push, the more right thinking Americans (white and Black) will shake their head and vote Obama on election day. The young people especially are sick of this crap. Sick of their father’s and mother’s hypocrisy. Even the accidental racists (those who swore they were not racists and, by virtue of having grown up in this media racists society, thought Black people complained for no reason) will become ashamed and angered at having been bamboozled and will vote Obama. Change? How about a New World Order…waking up and the President of the United States is Black — and gives a damn.

    This just goes to show they are SCARED because they know OBAMA will be the next president. Hateration in rare form here. I dont even know why i’m surprised, the New Yorker is run by the caucasian persuasion

    Hahaha. Somebody shoulda asked Barack that during his Speech when he said everyone needs to make their children learn Spanish.

  • randomthoughts

    It just goes to show just how racist this country still is. Oh well, they better get use to Obama cause he WILL be the next president. Yes we can!

  • sniper

    @ Whats the World Coming To? (SMH @ racism in 08, GET OUT DA DARK AGES!)

    Actually, I’m a little scared if Obama becomes President – I’ll have to learn Spanish, because he demands it.

    Crustbetweenmytoes….

    Ummm this is NOT ‘great artwork’. When I think of great Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Picasso….those names come to mind. This was clearly sketched by some redneck chewing a straw while batting flies away from their Milwaukee’s Best….oh after having sex with their niece.

  • Lady Architect

    SMH this is so sad. It just makes him stronger in the end though.

  • Slide Like A Fresh Pair of Gators (fka Keepin' It Real - D'Original)

    This is VERY distasteful and I see ABSOLUTELY NO humor in this whatsoever…

    These “so called” educated people and the “editor” know better…

    SOME white people are inherently racist and this is a prime example of that fact…

    I understand that “controversy sells” but they crossed the line with this one…

    What they so affectionately refer to as the “fist bump” is something they’ll (white people) ALL be doing sometime soon down the road in the near future, just like all of the other things that we (Black people) do FIRST that they make fun of initially and be like “why do they do that?”, but then they end up doing it later…

  • http://www.myspace.com/pure_comedy Ariel (Bored @ work)

    WOW this is crazy, but i think its ironic that they drew a pic of the main thing that let black people know that the Obama’s were down and made it into a negative thing. *fist pound forever!*

  • Kittylicious 1 aka Melaine aka I know you Bi****** Want What's Mine - FALL BACK

    The New Yorker should be ashamed of themselves – they knew exactly what they were doing when they created that cover. How come they haven’t done the same to McCain if it was supposed to be so innocent. This just goes to show people that the white people are scared of Barack, they are scared to see a black man in the White House, well I say it’s about time.

    Oh, i guess I’m cool cuz I speak Spanish @ sniper..LOL

  • STOP TRIPPING!

    dang! and these are his friends! black people please stop with this barack will be the next president nonsense. if white liberals feel this way about him, just imagine how the other white folk feel about him.

    he’s going to lose and you should understand that!
