Must not call Obama a skunk

But you can call conservatives anything you like, of course
"An ultra-conservative 'Tea Party' group has defended its depiction of President Barack Obama as a skunk as satirical - after it was accused of being racist.

The Kansas-based Patriot Freedom Alliance came under fire for posting a photo of a skunk on its website. The caption above it read: 'The skunk has replaced the eagle as the new symbol for the president. It is half black, it is half white, and almost everything it does, stinks.'

Area president of the National Association for the Advancement of Coloured People (NAACP) Darrell Pope called the depiction a 'blatant statement of racism'.

He said: 'As far as I'm concerned it's proof of the kind of organisation that they are, which I felt it always had racial overtones in the first place.

Thomas Hymer, who maintains the website, defended the post which has now been taken down by saying: 'It's satire is what it is. Satire in a politically incorrect form.'

Skunks are a race apparently. I would have thought that they were a species.

Dear Mr. Pope,
Are you saying that the picture and message are racist, but the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People isn't? It is time to get off the soap box and eliminate all racism, not just from the white side

I still don't understand what race has to do with anything. You can say everything he does stinks w/o pointing out that he is a halfbreed.

Albert,

Are you saying it's an insult to be called "half-white?"

Or are you saying that somehow it's an insult to be called ONLY "half-black?"

Let's see...

A skunk is part white and part black.

President Obama (peace be upon him) is part white and part black.

A skunk stinks.

President Obama (peace be upon him) stinks.

Sounds fitting to me.

Too many people forget that our illustrious leader is just as much white as he is black.

We must not forget that Bush was half monkey.

Obama stinks worse then a dozen or so roadkill skunks on the interstate in july

This provides another good reason for having a President or Head of State who is above politics and beyond the kind of party-political abuse shown here, such as many countries have for that very reason (as the Head of State should command general respect as a symbol of the country).
