Birther Ad Is Not Raaaaacist, It’s Just Stupid

As usual, a far left web site has gone stark raving bonkers. Yes, yes, I know, this isn’t actually shocking or special. But, yesterday, Think Progress has ramped up the bat s**t crazy to level 8

Washington Times Runs Anti-Obama Birther Ad Featuring Racial Undertones

This latest national edition of the Washington Times features a full-page ad that claims that President Obama is not a natural-born citizen of the United States. The ad was purchased by the anti-Obama website ProtectOurLiberty.org. While the group has placed several birther ads in the Washington Times in recent months, the version that ran this morning contains far more inflammatory imagery — three monkeys, apparently intended to represent the U.S. Congress, courts, and the media:

What is the ad?

Scared Monkeys responds to Think Progress with

Hmm, I guess the liberal intellectuals at Think Progress do not get the reference of the “see no, hear no and speak no evil” monkeys and comparing them to Congress, the Courts and the MSM. Even your own post says that the monkeys represent Congress, Court and Media.

Everything is raaaaacism in Liberal World. Except when they are beating up Black Conservatives at TEA Parties and calling them racist names. When a Democrat candidate for President calls another candidate, who is half Black, “articulate and bright and clean.” When the same candidate makes a remark (technically, this is bigoted) about Indian’s owning 7/11’s. When there is a “most respected” Democrat who used to be a leader with the KKK, and stated he would never serve with Blacks in the military. When they are blocking the Civil Rights Act. And when they do everything they can to pander to minorities, then keep same minorities poor and beholden to the Government.

Really, the ad is not racist. The Three Wise Monkeys apparently go back to the 8th century, and have several meanings along the same lines, none of them racist. Those of us who are not wackadoodle nutjob race baiters understand the meaning of the use of the three monkeys in the ad. Still, the ad is idiotic in content. Regardless of what any British law says, the U.S. Constitution says that anyone born on American soil, of which Hawaii was in 1961, is a natural born citizen (I’m not going to discuss natural born and certain US properties outside of the 50 States, not relevant). Obama is a natural born citizen. The only way he would not be is if he was not born in the 50 States.

While the argument about Obama’s eligibility can be interesting, it’s time to move on. The media, the Congress, and the courts have no interest in why Obama has fought so hard to release his long form birth certificate. Oh, maybe that’s sorta what the monkeys represent.

Apparently, Think Progress doesn’t like Free Speech.

Oh, and speaking of barking moonbat unhinged crazy, Excitable Chucky has a screed up saying why he left the Right. Like he was ever there. The Other McCain, Jules Crittenden, The Jawa Report, and Israel Matzav destroy Mad King Charles’ whiny girly man looooooonacy.

    I must say I agree with you, Teach. The monkeys don’t qualify as “racial undertones” in my book. I am also glad to see that you do not subscribe to the idea of conjuring up ways to believe that Obama isn’t a citizen. Somebody write this down! It’s a historical benchmark! Reasic and Teach agree on something!! 🙂

    Oh, and I’ve seen someone posting under my name at least twice now, and I just happen to have caught them. I’m worried about what that person might say under my name when I don’t see it. I’m sure my reputation here isn’t great, but I wouldn’t want to lose what little I have by someone else making tasteless comments for me. Could you check the email used for the two comments I’ve questioned? Is there any way to put a stop to that? Any ideas?

  2. This is almost as sad as Joy Behar asking if calling Black Friday “Black Friday” was “racist”. I almost fell out of my chair, but luckily Whoopi informed the Dr. Behar, Rocket Scientist, that the black on black friday was not a negative connoation nor did it refer to people of color, simply that that was when most companies finally broke into the “black” after being in the “red” all year.

    As you say, everything is “racial” to these people.

    And I’m tired of the “birthers”. Even if they are correct, which I believe they’re not, do they really want PRESIDENT Biden????

  3. Sorry for the late response, server issues are keeping the system from sending out emails.

    Thank you for that, Reasic. We do agree. I do think there is something funny in why he won’t release the full BC, but, in my book, he is a natural born citizen till someone can prove otherwise, and I have yet to see a valid argument that over-rides “born to an American citizen in the state of Hawaii.” The argument these folks are making about his dad being British, etc, in no way stops him from being considered natural born, since mommy was a US citizen, and Barack was born in Hawaii.

    I looked, it is a completely different email address. I’ve seen some folks using that same handle around the blogosphere and on Forums, but, if it happens more, I will ban the email address or IP (can’t ban the name, obviously 🙂 )

    That Behar one was a hoot. She could benefit from some Prozac. Biden could be more fun, though. Just imagine him making all the appearences that Obama does. You know he would say something nutty.

    But, yeah, the BC issue was interesting originally, but, time to move on. Nothing will ever get done, and pretty much the only people who are left who actually care are the really wild conspiracy folks. We have bigger fish to fry.
