    Leftist cartoonist accused of "racist" depiction of Obama

    A leftie gets a taste of their own toxic "race card" medicine.........

    Radical -versus-radical squabble over a cartoon image of Obama. Leftist cartoonist Ted Rall was lectured by a Daily Kos administrator that “your depiction of Barack Obama as ape-like is intolerable” and insisted “blacks have been subject to racist depictions of themselves as monkeys and apes. No excuse is acceptable for replicating that history, no matter what your intent."' The cartoon was censored.

    The caricature doesn't really look like Obama, certainly not the ape-like nose. Rall, who hasn’t been paid for his Daily Kos submissions, was furious at being accused of a racist cartoon:

    “Anyone familiar with me and my work knows I’m not racist,” he complained. “My criticisms of the president are unrelated to his race, and to say otherwise in the absence of evidence is disgusting.” [translation: I am a good progressive, it is impossible for me to be racist!]

    He added: “It should be noted that my editors at a variety of American newspapers, magazines and websites, almost all of whom are left of center politically, some of whom are black and many of whom voted for Obama, have never expressed the slightest concern about the way I draw the president.”

    But no doubt Rall as a good leftie has accused conservatives of racism,  for merely opposing Obama...a leftie gets a taste of the toxic race card medicine...

    jed,

    Apparently not.

    Maybe he thinks at least one of us commie/liberal/leftie/socialist/radical/progressive/godless/etc. types will suddenly see the light and come over to the right side and then renounce our previous beliefs and finally be on the correct side of history.

    Hallelujah brothers!!!

    [/QUOTE]WELL  ???????

    "When the article he posted from "newsbusters" is told in its fuller context it takes on a very different meaning of course.

    IMO, if a poster wants to continue taking shots at the left and people who lean toward the left over and over and over, he would be well served to have a better handle on the facts of the situation."

     

    You miss the point...as you often do. I am not calling Rall a racist.

    Rall was accused of being racist because his cartoon of Obama was drawn as most of his cartoon characters were, with a crude nose.

    The point is, the toxic overused 'race card'  being thrown out at a leftie like Rall.. if a conservative cartoonist drew the same character, he /she no doubt would be censored and sent to cartoonists' re-education camp....

    "Just when I thought some of us were making some progress in actually having dialogues as of late there seems to have been a terrible turnaround with some conservatives cheering each on and whose main goal seems to be scoring points."

    Jeez, someone takes themselves far too seriously ...stop congratulating yourself....'dialogue' to you, means everyone agreeing with the failed policies of liberalism...sorry, aint happening.

    Looks like a black Homer Simpson.  

    And in looking at the artists drawing, his depiction of Obama is very similar to his other drawings of males, save for the nose is a little bigger and the skin is brown.  My guess is the guy just doesn't draw black people well.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I have done cartooning for years, mostly for fun, a couple of mine were used by the Providence Journal about 20 years ago. I had many rejected, for various reasons. I would be ashamed to call this one mine, it stinks. The character doesn't look enough like Obama , the cartoon is poorly drawn overall, and quite frankly it isn't funny at all.

    That's all?

    I thought we were all in agreement that sometimes, some people call "racism" falsely...and also, some people call "race card" falsely.

    "Sometimes",  means daily on MSNBC....
