What is your opinion of the cartoon with the chimpanzee and stimulus bill?
I feel it's discrimnating and knowing Barack Obama just signed the bill and there was a wild chimpanzee, it's just not right.

I think Sharpton just wanted to get in front of a camera and stir up crap and show just how uninformed he is. Obama didn't write the bill, congress did and only a liberal would be so stupid as not to know who wrote this crap bill they all love for $13/wk.
Even if the monkey did represent Obama, and it doesn't, and if people are so upset about people being drawn as monkeys why didn't he say a word any of the times Bush was drawn that way. See link below. Obama should be treated exactly the same as Bush, when you treat people differently because of their skin color THAT is racism.
This is standard operating procedure for libtards whenever they don't like something call it racist.
For the past month whenever anyone was critical of Obama they have been called racist. We do have the right to freedom of speech and press and since this great nation was born political satire has been an important part of it. These people are just idiots, Al Sharpton will find racism in a fire hydrant.Source(s): It is only bad when they think it's their guy.

It was taking two news stories and combining them into one cartoon. There was a wild chimpanzee that bit a woman's face off (literally!), totally beat the crap out of her, and the cartoonist, Delanos, I think that's his name, combined that story with how people feel Congress is beating up America with the stimulus bill. (The crazy real life chimp was shot by police.)
The bill wasn't written by Barack Obama. So, no matter what Al Sharpton says, it wasn't directed toward Obama, but Congress as a whole. A white man is the one who introduced the bill to Congress! (David Obey, a Democrat from Wisconsin.)

It's funny for two reasons.
First, I don't suffer from white guilt, second I'm not a red neck.
The statement which that cartoon made is clear to me-that an enraged chimp could have written a better recovery plan than Nancy Pelosi did.
And don't ignore that fact for your own benefit. The spending plan was written by Democrats in Congress, not President Barry.
And then Harry Reid over in the Senate added his own wish list to the package. Again, Barry did not write the thing.
The folks who are up in arms over this are either blacks suffering from racism, or whites suffering from white guilt. That's my half of the conversation that Barry said America needed to have.
Rememver that? When he was campaigning, Barry said that America needed to talk about race. He said that we had to trust each other, and to listen and respect each other, we had to get things out in the open.
Well, where you at, Barry?

It's only words. Discrimination is not words, but only in a persons mind. What's the problem. When people can't express their opinions, what's this world coming to. Once again we are all becoming sheep. Baahh

The cartoonist captured Comrade Dictator Obozo's likeness perfectly - from the huge dumbo ears to his snobbish chin. I commend him on his excellent artistic abilities.
BTW - have you read the 1st Amendment to the Constitution yet? I don't believe the Comrade has burned it yet. The cartoonist has every right.

Yes, the chimp should have had "B.O." on it so that there would be no mistake in the meaning.
