No one said it was racist when people pointed out that G.W. looks like a chimp. Some people look like chimps, we are all great apes, after all.

"No, I'm not going to sell them anymore, I'm sold out!" haha.

simon666 - 2008-09-25

yeah but white people weren't called "porch monkey".

takewithfood - 2008-09-25

Technically Curious George isn't a monkey. But still, dude should (and probably does) know better.

simon666 - 2008-09-25

Yeah technically it's a cartoon. But Curious George is a signifier for "The most curious little MONKEY" by-the-way.

Hooker - 2008-09-25

Sometimes I really hate your country, guys. Sorry.

tamago - 2008-09-25

It's okay. Sometimes I hate it too.

And you people with common sense and intelligence, it's probably useless for us to argue with Cena_mark. He seems to suffer from arrogant stupidity.

You can usually appeal to arrogant people's sense of logic and you can work your way around stupid people's train of thought, but arguing with an arrogantly stupid person is like trying to shoulder bash your way through a brick wall.

I'm Mike Galanos - and on behalf of my African American ancestors, I AM OFFENDED! Good day, sir. I SAID GOOD DAY.

Geoff Marr - 2008-09-25

The man on the phone just sounds so innocent

Meerkat - 2008-09-25

Why does the phone dude make me think of Family Guy?

takewithfood - 2008-09-25

Honestly. It's the unintentionally whistled 's'.

Cena_mark - 2008-09-25

I've seen tons of parodies of George W. Bush comparing him to Curious George. Some calling him Uncurious George. There are websites that compare pictures of the President to pictures of monkeys. What's with the double standard?
The liberal media is cool with people making fun of W. but you can't say anything negative about Obama.

Meerkat - 2008-09-25

This is not a liberal vs. conservative issue, you fucking sped. If Bush was black and people did the chimp thing then you can be 100% certain that they would be called racists and deservedly so.

If the cartoon had been a bunny that likes eating Arugula instead of lettuce, then that would NOT be racist. Bunnies have big ears.

You don't always have to reduce everything to some sort of junior high school intramural sports rivalry. Grow up already. Lefty blogs are not the mainstream media. You queef.

Cena_mark - 2008-09-25

Listen "Queerkat", anyone who puts their bias aside can see that the resemblance is uncanny. But everybody at CNN and MSNBC just need a story to make Obama look good so they leap on it and call it racist.
Guys like you just try to call out "racism" to compensate for your lack of black friends.

Meerkat - 2008-09-25

My sister in law is black, you prancing bumblefuck.

Corman's Inferno - 2008-09-25

You just called a black presidential candidate a chimp. Keep it up, you sad, petty little man. He's going to kick your dick in on Nov. 2nd.

Cena_mark - 2008-09-25

Your brother marrying a black woman doesn't make you any less racist than you are.

I didn't call Obama a chimp. Please find my quote where I call him a chimp.
I'm not voting for Obama because of the issues. If Condi were running for president I'd vote for her in a heartbeat.

simon666 - 2008-09-25

Cena, why don't you read the first thread. It covers this. Also, Bush, quite literally, bumbled verbally when he spoke in public for many years. It is only now that it has got somewhat better. Bumbling when you are in a position requiring a lot of responsibility, makes you look like an incompetent. Thus, the HUMOR of the moniker "Uncurious George" who shares the first name with the President.

Get it now? 1+1=2, 1+paperclip DOES NOT EQUAL hot air balloon.

KnowFuture - 2008-09-25

The difference is W sucks.
Not as much as his supporters though.

Spike Jonez - 2009-03-10

I love it when racist fucktards just assume that everyone else is racist and just holds it all in or something.

Corman's Inferno - 2008-09-25

"Listen "Queerkat", anyone who puts their bias aside can see that the resemblance is uncanny."

How is that not calling him a chimp, you fucking dumbass? Goddamn, no wonder you love McCain and Palin.

Cena_mark - 2008-09-25

Its call a simile. "A '''simile''' is a technique that uses words such as "like" or "as" to compare two ideas. Even though similes and metaphors are both forms of comparison, similes allow the two ideas to remain distinct in spite of their similarities"

On a side note, we can never have constructive dialogue about race in this country unless we stop overusing the term "racism"

You are a fool Whoreman's Inferno. No wonder you love Obama bin Biden.

Merzbau - 2008-09-25

"Listen 'Queerkat', anyone who puts their bias aside can see that the resemblance is uncanny."

And I note the complete absence of simile from what you said. What you actually fucking SAID was that he looks like a monkey.

"On a side note, we can never have constructive dialogue about race in this country unless we stop overusing the term 'racism' "

I just love it when Republicans trot out this turd of a thought. First of all, it's retarded, like saying "we can never have a constructive dialogue about the potato famine until you stop whining about being 'hungry'"; second, I almost always see this deployed alongside a bizarre insistence that racism isn't a problem anymore, and that society is "colorblind" now.

So what's my snappy nickname, champ?

Merzbau - 2008-09-25

Ooh! In before you claim that "x looks like y" is a simile!

Corman's Inferno - 2008-09-25

"On a side note, we can never have constructive dialogue about race in this country unless we stop overusing the term 'racism'"

Yes, let's take the racism out of the debate about race.

Let's take the economy out of the debate about the economy.

Let's take public education out of the debate about public education.

Let's take foreign policy out of the debate about foreign policy.

Fuck it! Let's just say that we must ATTEND TO URGENT BUSINESS RIGHT NOW and cancel the debate!

KnowFuture - 2008-09-25

"Obama bin Biden"

...don't you have a party to go ruin somewhere?

KnowFuture - 2008-09-25

Oh, and to beat you to it: BlowFuture...you fucking tool.

a flaming monkey - 2008-09-26

this thread is immensely entertaining ...thank you.

... As a flaming monkey, I thought I should at least make some sort of comment.

Cena_mark - 2008-09-26

HoFuture you don't have all angles covered as you might think.

"Let's take the economy out of the debate about the economy.

Let's take public education out of the debate about public education."
My argument doesn't go by that logic. What I want is for petty accusations of racism to go away. We can't have a serious dialogue on racism if its reduced to Al Sharpton blowing his megaphone at everything he considers racist.

Stog - 2008-09-26

Cena_mark: Shut up, wigger.

Cena_mark - 2008-09-26

I may be a wigger, but that means I am in touch with the black part of my soul. It gives me a great understanding of black America. I have even been called an honorary black man by some of my black friends.
I would love to see a black president, but Obama is not the one. Please do not confuse my opposition to Obama with racism, for it is not.

KnowFuture - 2008-09-28

No, it gives you a great understanding of eating a dick.

OxygenThief - 2008-09-28

Cena_mark is the biggest faggot that every faggoted faggots...and I never want him to leave poetv.

UnderANeonHalo - 2008-09-25

These 5 are for the side by side comparison of Obama and Curious George making me giggle uncontrollably. Also why is this racist? I mean seriously they do look similar. I have a black friend who's sister calls her monkey because she says she looks like a monkey, some people just do. Hell, Ron Pearlman looks like that monkey from skunkfu.

http://www.skunkfu.tv/iframes/characters/images/baboonimage04_ 04.jpg


And anyways, if the guy is a racist then oh well. We do have the right to openly voice our beliefs and opinions in this country, and as far as I'm concerned being a dick isn't grounds enough to revoke those rights.

Cena_mark - 2008-09-25

That is the logic of most people here.

Merzbau - 2008-09-25

Nobody's calling for the t-shirt guy to be legally punished or have his freedom of speech taken away, you goddamn moron. Yes, we have the right to say anything we want in this country; no, this does not mean we have the right to not be called out as a stupid racist fuck.

UnderANeonHalo - 2008-09-25

I'm not your friend cena, so might I suggest that when the juvenile name calling starts I be "underaneonGAYlo!".

UnderANeonHalo - 2008-09-25

Geez, I attract trolls like a bridge.

HankFinch - 2008-09-26

well, that explains your girlfriend! *ba dum tisssssss*

UnderANeonHalo - 2008-09-26

Fiancee, we're engaged ya know.

Cleaner82 - 2008-09-25

Fellas, we're going to have to deal with this when the man is voted in. Politicians are mocked, there are only so many uncreative caricatures to go around. For better or worse it's gonna happen.

So suck it up!

Knuckles - 2008-09-26

haha, I have no problem with it. Republicans can draw caricatures of Obama as a chimp to their little black rotten hearts' content. I hope they enjoy themselves. It'll be the only semblance of power they have left.

Meanwhile Obama and his democratic supermajority will cloture filibusters, legalize gay marriage, install a system of universal health care, and appoint the most liberal supreme court ever.

Camonk - 2008-09-26

Four stars. I just can't give five stars after having to scroll through this many morons responding to Cena_Mark. I'm a racist!

Randroid - 2008-09-26

This is precisely why I give it 5.

glendower - 2008-09-26

I hate to say this, but there is a double standard. Comparing a white person to a monkey does not have a racist precedent. But as this interviewer mentions, blacks and other non-whites were depicted or described as monkeys for centuries. This shirt cannot help but hearken back to that past. Its the same type of thing with the noose symbol. I'm tired of Cena and other conservatives' disingenuous "whats the big deal!?" attitude.

j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-09-26

Saying that "Barack Obama should be lynched like a faggot loving terrorist nigger" is a racist statement is absolute bullshit. It's called a SIMILE. Notice the words "LIKE A." Now did anyone say should be lynched BECAUSE he's a faggot loving terrorist nigger? Damn, you people really such at reading.
