Skip to comments.When is Something Racist? When the Left Says It Is
Posted on 01/10/2012 8:42:39 AM PST by Interesting Times
In a short piece in the Culture Monster section of the Los Angeles Times, Christopher Knight decries a satirical depiction of the First Lady based on a 1775 portrait of famed French lover of luxury, Marie Antoinette. The image replaces Maries face with Mrs. Obamas, and the young queens puffy-sleeved left arm with a bare muscular black arm clearly a poke at Mrs. Obamas penchant for going sleeveless to show off her buffed guns. Her right hand points to a spot on a world globe, and the image caption reads Choosing the next vacation.
Obviously a pointed commentary on Michelle Obamas high-end wardrobe and frequent lavish getaways such as a glitzy Spanish jaunt and her familys recent $4 million, 17-day trip to Hawaii, right? If you think so, then youre not getting the pics overt racism, according to Christopher Knight, and youre probably racist yourself for laughing at it, according to the left.

How long will the race card work for the Dems?
“...... Mrs. Obamas penchant for going sleeveless to show off her buffed guns...”
Right beside you, Cyber!!!! But the bricks are starting to give a little, so....
Thanks for the racist ping. It is a leftist curse-word that excuses all their attacks on those who disagree with them.
That’s a pretty cool nick. I wonder how many people you beat out to get “zot?”

Interesting question. When I signed up, it wasn't taken.
McKinney...this is one psycho witch....
For whatever my words are worth to you?
I’m part Injun- take a look at my Avatar here:
The Left’s accusations of RAAACIST! ( Hat tip, the little Gay Boyz at HillBuzz who coined the spelling... ) are just monkeys flinging poo.
People in the real world pay it no mind. They have better things to do...
"Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal".--James (Jim) Cone,

SEAN HANNITY: But Reverend Jeremiah Wright is not backing down and has not for years and in his strong stance on the teaching of black liberation theology is nothing new. He had the same things to say last spring when he appeared on "Hannity & Colmes:"
WRIGHT: If you're not going to talk about theology in context, if you're not going to talk about liberation theology that came out of the '60s, systematized black liberation theology that started with Jim Cone in 1968 and the writings of Cone and the writings of Dwight Hopkins and the writings of womynist theologians and Asian theologians and Hispanic theologians, then you can't talk about the black value system.
HANNITY: But I'm a reverend
WRIGHT: Do you know liberation theology, sir?
Malik Zulu Shabazz, chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense(NBPP):
"We believe in a Black first philosophy and a Black Liberation Theology."
Although it [The New Black Panther Party] says it sees capitalism as the fundamental problem with the world and revolution as the solution, the new party does not draw its influences from Marxism or Maoism as the original party did. Instead, in a carefully-worded, roundabout form of ethnic nationalism, they say that Marx based his ideology and teachings on indigenous African cultures, and that the NBPP therefore need not look to Marxism or Maoism as a basis for their program, but can look to ideologies that stem directly from those African origins.
"The Justice Department originally brought the case against four armed men who witnesses say derided voters with catcalls of "white devil" and "cracker" and told voters they should prepare to be "ruled by the black man." ..."
One poll watcher called police after he reportedly saw one of the men brandishing a nightstick to threaten voters.
As I walked up, they closed ranks, next to each other, the witness told Fox News at the time. So I walked directly in between them, went inside and found the poll watchers. They said theyd been here for about an hour. And they told us not to come outside because a black man is going to win this election no matter what.
He said the man with a nightstick told him, Were tired of white supremacy, and he starts tapping the nightstick in his hand. At which point I said, OK, were not going to get in a fistfight right here, and I called the police....

I bet every one of these guys would produce a truly scary MMPI.
ETL, where were those last two photos taken?
You betcha- my closest neighbors are a pair of Gay Gals and my next nearest? A family of what I call "my black Angels."
I'd do anything in the world for them- because they befriended me when my wife died.
But because I won't cheerlead for the Left's assorted narratives and causes, I'm the bigot.
To Hell with them- I try to take people as individuals, not special members of some special group.
>>where were those last two photos taken?
Sorry, been extremely busy last few weeks. The link is below. Should have included it with the pics as I usually do.
