Simple Question: What If This Were Obama?

Want to bet we would hear shrill shrieks of R-R-R-A-A-A-C-C-C-I-I-I-S-S-S-M-M-M from the Obama campaign, the DNC, assorted race hos, and the MSM?

But somehow they find this acceptable.


First he tried to justify it in terms of it being Halloween.

He says "it should be seen as art, and as within the month of October. It's Halloween, it's time to be scary it's time to be spooky."

But then he tried to argue that it was OK because Palin, after all, is only white.

"I know if we had done it with Barack Obama, people would've probably thrown things through our windows," Morrisette said. "The image of a hanged black man is a lot more intense than the image of a hanged white woman -- for our country -- in the history of our country."

Yep – it is that racial double standard again.

So got that – the tolerant Left thinks thinks it is “art” to depict the murder of white women with the wrong political opinions. But there are some lines that they refuse to cross – even though we are oftent old that art is supposed to be “edgy” and “cross boundaries”. I guess those are only conservative boundaries. Because please notice that Joe Biden isn’t depicted as a part of the display, though John McCain is.

And its just as well – even if Morrisette’s “art” were to include a hanging Barack Obama, and it were accepted as part of the spirit of the season, there would still be a serious uproar. After all, calling such a display “spooky” would be simply one more opportunity for the usual suspects to holler R-R-R-A-A-A-C-C-C-I-I-I-S-S-S-M-M-M!

Great commentary from Don Surber, Michelle Malkin and Gay Patriot.

Comments on Simple Question: What If This Were Obama?

I must point out that your painting with a wide brush. Even the far left Keith Olbermann came out strongly against this smarmy, hate filled attention whore. (based on the few clips of this jerk, I get the feeling that he just wanted to be on TV, he's so self absorbed and smug, so I'm personally torn, it would drive him mad to go un noticed, and he doesnt deserve his ego to be fed, but then again, he's wrong, and a bad person, and he's the reason why freedom of expression is a double edged sword.

But who is saying this is "art" besides this jerk? Who has defended this or agreed that it's keeping with the spooky season?

Who, besides this jerk, says it's OK because she's white?

I see nobody defending this guy, and yet, you decide that he represents a entire political party?

He represents one person, himself. I'm sure there are people who agree with his views, but I have faith in even the farthest nutcases of the left that his sort is a very minor minority.
Much like I cannot believe the girl who faked her attack represents anyone but the smallest number of nutcases on the far right.

It is not racist to say that a the image of a hanged black man would evoke a more emotional response from people. It would touch the most tender nerve that runs through American history. There is no history of angry mobs indiscriminately hanging white women. There is no history of people being racist against white women, and therefore this is not a racist action. If a person were to do that to a black mannequin, of course it would be viewed as racist, regardless of meaning, because of our shared history.
That is just the way it is, Social Studies teacher.
Furthermore, in an earlier post, you defended the first right ammendment of the KKK to hand out flyers. How is this any different? It's despicable, but it is still protected free speech.

Actually, I defend the right of this moron to hang Palin in effigy -- just as I do the right of the idiots who have since hanged Obama in effigy. Interesting, though, that those have faced criminal charges. I guess that some animals are more eaqual than others on Obama's Animal Farm.
