CHIMP: Hey You lousy bastard! What the idea of launching a chocolate torpedo in the tub!
I was my turn next!

GORILLA: Shut your hole runt! Just because they taught ya how smoke cigars and roller skate
don't mean you're higher on the evolutionary ladder then the rest of us!

ORANGTAN : Both you dimwits shut it! I'm trying to watch The Rifleman on ME TV.
And ifI hear another out peep out of either of you,
I'll switch the signs on your cages and they'll be using both you losers
in AIDS research tomorrow!

If W can be referred to relentlessly as a chimp,
then I see no reason at all that Barry can't also be.
To not say the same of Barry would be descriminatory.

Had Obama replaced Bush in these pictures, the wailing and gnashing of teeth would have been legendary. Also, do you think the left would have been as forgiving if a movie about Obama getting assassinated would have been made? Funny how hypocritical the left can be.

1. Part of the reason the monkey/George W. Bush jokes exist is because his name is George. Like in Curious George, the children's books. One of the others is some of his personal mannerisms that those who like him find endearing and those who hate him mock.

2. I don't think I need to explain why it is racist to call a black person a monkey and it's not racist to call a white person one. AD's explaination about lawn jockeys should be sufficient, but feigned cluelessness about racism seems to be popular among some white people, so I will be blunt. As a white person, other white people seem to think it's okay to make racist statements to me (which they always find out is a big mistake). "Porch monkeys" is the term I've heard used to describe black people sitting on their front porches, and "monkeys" was used by many of my racist relatives to describe black people in general. Context is everything, and there is a historical context to associating monkeys with african americans in a derogatory manner.

The Left's claim is that they were just pointing out how stupid W is/was when they used monkeys to describe W. I personally think that Obama is dumb as a fucking signpost. So if I use a monkey to describe Obama, particularly his more than obvious stupidity, then why is it somehow racist?


The only possible answer is that the Left is, as usual, engaging in double standards. This particular one is just especially funny because they utterly and completely did it to themselves, and now they don't like it.

Exactly.

If white people had a history of being called porch monkeys, then the Bush pictures would be racism. However, white people don't have a history for that, so it's not racism. It's just being a jerk.

Now, if you ever find a box of crackers with a white politician's name on them, get back to me.

Pictures comparing Bush to a monkey can be in any context: humorous, he's stupid, he's "not curious," he's "Curious George," etc. Pictures comparing Obama to a monkey can only be in the context of racism. It's utterly impossible that anyone could think that Obama is stupid without being a racist.

Nice double-standard.

Because we don't have a national history of treating blue blooded Episcopalians as being subhuman primates, or likening them to apes as a group. There is your reason.

Your "logic" is like saying that they called Laura Bush "pickles" so you see no reason why they can't call Michelle "watermelon" , after all, they are both vegetables.

Some things simply are the way they are. Call a man a "dick" and no one cares. Call a woman a "cword" and it's a bannable offense, even on this BBS and yours if I am not mistaken.

Amazing how a Lib turns into a contorsionist to defend THEIR racism and why it's justified while claiming Republicans are the REAL racists?

Reminds of of that time in Maryland when people in the crowd at a rally for a black man running for the Senate tossed Oreo cookies at him.

Oh...wait....


Or that conservative editorial cartoonist that drew the cartoon of Condi Rice labelling a "House Nigga".


Oh...yeah...that's right...


Wait I got it...remember when that Conservative entertainer called Colin Powell a "house negro"...

"Porch monkeys" is the term I've heard used to describe black people sitting on their front porches,

Traditionally, "porch monkey" is only a reference to black children too young to work on the farm. Children are naturally likened to monkeys, because they crawl around, squeal, and cling to their mothers like juvenile apes. Just thought I would clear that up.

The problem isn't that calling Bush a chimp wasn't racist while calling Obama one could be (and let's be fair, racists have repeatedly compared blacks to other primates, so it's not like it isn't a racist meme when directed at them), it's that the level of disrespect shown for Bush by liberals is far greater than that shown for Obama by conservatives. Bush was vilified in the press as a mass-murderer, and incompetent, an idiot and a monster, while various leftards even fantasized about his assassination (they even made a movie about it). That same press considers a target on a map to be an incitement to murder when directed at a Democrat's congressional district, and equate every criticism of Obama with racism, because they have no substantive arguments against those criticisms.

In other words, it's okay for the left to say anything that they want about us, but any criticism of them is out of bounds and morally suspect. That's the problem.

You are rationalizing.

Rationalizing? No. In fact, I did agree that a monkey reference to a black man had a racial connotation that it didn't with a white. However, the volume and degree of insulting, boorish and otherwise ugly behavior towards Bush by the left is still greater than the right's behavior towards Obama, and that's how the left likes it.

If that person of color is a liberal the. You can't even mention the Founding Fathers or the term "poor work ethic" without having the PC police cite your for using "racist code words".
