Oznog: Don't forget the monkey pics! BUSH you can compare to a monkey... but Obama, that's totally racist.
Republican Party: "Take those pics down - they're offensive and racist!"Translation: "Hey, morons - Take those pics down - We don't want everyone to know we're racist!"
untaken_name: Likwit: Spoken like a true racist.No, you're the racist. Boy, this is useful dialog.
Waldo Pepper: I don't know if it is as much racist or simply lazy weak humor. Once the man became President all gloves are off concerning his position and everything should be acceptable as long as you leave the family out of it.
Likwit: Spoken like a true racist.
untaken_name: Likwit: Spoken like a true racist.Let me add: Only on Fark would someone who treats everyone of all races the same be called racist by someone who decides how to treat people based on what race they are.

Mad Mark: Mock26: What do you call a girl from Virginia who can run faster than her brothers?A virgin!That's racist bigoted!
markfara: Let's keep in mind that these are the same dumbasses who thought that the Onion's "Obama's 19-Year-Old Son Makes Rare Appearance At DNC" story was real, and demanded to know why the MSM wasn't covering it.Fact: A significant percentage of today's Republican Party are is simply too stupid to engage in anything remotely resembling reasonable debate. About ANYTHING.
untaken_name: digistil: Both are in poor taste, but only one is racist. Please let us know if you truly don't understand why only one is racist.If it's only racist when done by, for, or against persons of one race but not others, it's racist. Therefore, the very idea that comparing people to monkeys is only racist when it's done to members of a certain race is, itself, a racist idea because it requires you to differentiate between people based solely on race. If you continue to push the idea that only people of one race cannot be compared to monkeys, you are actually perpetuating the stereotype. This is why historical context is a bad basis for perpetuating ideas, because if the actions of people many years ago are still used as a basis for determining our actions today, then we have not progressed at all, only codified negative stereotypes into the public consciousness so deeply that they become ingrained. Should a small child, knowing nothing of history, make fun of a black child by comparing them to a monkey, they will be quickly corrected and told that we do not call black people monkeys because in the past they were compared to monkeys. This just perpetuates the idea. The only way to end racist stereotypes is to quit letting them be effective. This means ignoring racist idiots instead of bringing MORE attention to them and their ideas.

AverageAmericanGuy: Gutsy move to repudiate the images before the press uproar begins.We saw how well that worked with the Todd Akin situation. Sometimes it's just better to quietly remove all evidence rather than make a big deal out of a relatively minor issue.
