University of Alabama's Crimson White student newspaper forced to apologize for "racist" cartoon of Obama.
Link ---> [link to themattwalshblog.com]

The University of Alabama’s student newspaper has been forced to apologize after printing a profoundly disturbing, offensive, racist political cartoon about the president. Here’s the cartoon [Warning: NSFW]:

Pic ---> [link to themattwalshblog.files.wordpress.com]

The students of UA — leaders of the future, the greatest young minds in the country, the best and the brightest — were driven to the edge of rebellion by this sick and twisted, racially motivated attack against the Greatest President to Ever Preside Over Any Country Anywhere at Any Point Ever.

Here’s just one of the hundreds of angry comments that poured in after this horrible hate crime cartoon was published:

“I am completely and utterly disgusted with The University of Alabama. No matter where you stand with your beliefs and how much you disagree with his decisions, [Obama] has EARNED his position in office and deserves the respect that all of the past presidents received. Ask yourself, what does this say about The University of Alabama? I can tell you what my peers and fellow classmates think it is, racism.”

This woman, a student who apparently passed high school and gained acceptance to a large American university, just made the claim that no other president has ever been subjected to criticism and mockery. And she is, of course, absolutely correct. We’ve had white presidents murdered while in office, but even they never had to endure the unspeakable horrors of satirical cartoons and lighthearted parodies. We’ve had a president impeached and a president forced to resign. Our most recent white president was mocked so regularly that Comedy Central actually made a sitcom entirely devoted to making fun of him. Yet none of these had to deal with the sort of anger and hostility directed at Obama. Obama stands alone in that regard. Lincoln and JFK are looking on from the grave, thinking, “man, that guy has it rough.”

Now, you may see this image and think two things: 1) It’s actually making fun of Obama’s critics, not Obama himself. 2) Even if it did make fun of Obama, there is absolutely nothing racial about it.

You may think such things — if you’re a racist.

I used to imagine that it was possible to make substantive critiques of Obama’s policies without necessarily being a slobbering white supremacist. But I’ve finally been forced to face the ugly truth. After all, it’s a widely held belief on college campuses that all criticism of Obama stems from racial bias. This means that either they’re right, or our higher academic institutions are filled to the brim with mush-brained, dimwitted morons who possess the critical thinking skills of developmentally delayed toddlers. If the latter is true, we are doomed. We must flee into the woods before our civilization is destroyed by the Walking Dumb. I can not accept such a horrible vision of the future, so I choose to believe option one: they are right.

Criticizing Obama = racism. Period. End of discussion.

And, by that equation, I have been guilty of racism. God forgive me. I thought I just specifically disliked one particular black man named Barack Obama for very valid reasons, but, it turns out, you can not oppose one black politician without opposing all black people. Oh Lord, I am a Klansman. I thought my feelings were driven by my intense ideological belief in small government, fiscal and social conservatism, as well as a general distaste for dishonesty and corruption, but, in fact, it is all rooted in my underlying hatred for minorities. I am so ashamed. I didn’t even know that I hated minorities until a bunch of college students and MSNBC hosts brought my attention to the fact.

I got into an argument with a white liberal a few days ago. He insisted that I could “never bring myself to support any black public figure.” I retorted that there are plenty of black public figures who I do support. I mentioned Ben Carson, Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, and Alan Keyes, as four examples. The white guy then informed me that those four “don’t count.” I’m still learning how this works, so, at first, I thought it was the pinnacle of racism for some pretentious white liberal to authoritatively decree that these educated, accomplished, distinguished black gentleman “don’t count” as black. He stripped them of their ethnicity and heritage in order to win an argument, and then called me racist. I admit, initially this seemed a little inappropriate.

But I am in the beginning stages of my Journey to Left Wing Enlightenment. I’m still learning the rules.

I’m still learning about myself.

I thought I opposed Obama because his signature health care law has been an unmitigated disaster, leaving millions uninsured, thousands unemployed, and millions of small businesses scrambling to deal with the burden of complicated regulations and crushing fines. I thought I opposed him because he told bold faced lies about Obamacare, duping his gullible and easily manipulated supporters. I thought I opposed him because it is abhorrent to liberty and freedom that a central government body should be given the authority to penalize its citizens for failing to buy a product.

I thought I opposed him because he has placed a fabricated “right” to free birth control over a divinely endowed, constitutionally guaranteed right to free religious expression. I thought I opposed him because the birth control mandate can not be justified on constitutional or ethical grounds.

But, really, it’s because he’s black.

I thought I opposed Obama because I value human life, yet he, as he reportedly bragged, is “really good at killing people.” I thought I opposed him because of his fanatical support for infanticide. I thought I opposed him because of his drone program which has murdered thousands of innocent civilians in Pakistan. I thought I opposed him because he’s the first president to assassinate American citizens without charge or trial. I thought I opposed him because he has funded and armed terrorists in Egypt, Libya, and Syria, as well as drug cartels in Mexico.

But, actually, it’s the blackness.

I thought I opposed Obama because he’s done nothing to alleviate the unemployment rate. I thought I opposed him because he’s more interested in expanding food stamp enrollment than the private sector. I thought I opposed him because, under his watch, median household incomes have dropped, poverty has gone up, high paying jobs have gone down, and fewer businesses are opening. I thought I opposed him because I’d rather have a healthy free market economy than a suffocating Welfare State.

But, nope, it’s just his skin pigmentation.

I thought I opposed Obama because he stole money from middle class Americans and gave it to banks, auto companies, unions, and green energy schemes. I thought I opposed Obama because he hates the free market but is the worst crony capitalist to ever sit in the White House. I thought I opposed him because he pretends to be a fighter for the poor, but he’s actually only interested in fighting for his pals on K-Street and Wall Street, which is why his administration is stuffed with lobbyists he vowed he’d never hire. That’s also why he handed out over one thousand waivers to his donors, exempting them from the requirements of Obamacare.

But, nah, I just hate his skin color.

I thought I opposed Obama because he’s a corrupt, lying, tyrant. I thought I opposed him because he used the IRS like it was an arm of his reelection campaign. I thought I opposed him because he let our ambassador die in Benghazi after sending him there to facilitate arms transfers between Libyan terrorists and Syrian terrorists, then lied about it in front of the American people. I thought I opposed Obama because he promised to stand for civil liberties, and then proceeded to preside over the most expansive Surveillance State in human history. I thought I opposed him because his Justice Department prosecutes journalists and blackmails whistleblowers.

But, never mind, it’s all about his ethnicity.

I’d totally love all of these things if only they happened under a white administration. Seriously. Remember Clinton? Conservatives wanted to criticize him for a thing or two, but we were all like, “hey, it’s cool guys: he’s white.”

I am a racist. There’s no other explanation.

Guess it's lost on the intellectually challenged that BOTH the football players depicted are black.

And no one "forced" them to apologize and personally I wish they had not.

But as the article states and is lost on most--ANY criticism of Obama is considered racist from his foreign policy disasters to this trainwreck on our healthcare system.

Obama can make no mistakes and is more infallible than the Pope and anyone who says otherwise is clearly a racist, right?

When pigs fly this is racist!

But two weekends ago our in-state rival Auburn University won the game and upset us by returning a 109 yard missed field goal attempt.

The week before this they had "The Miracle in Jordan-Hare" where Auburn QB Nick Marshall threw a hail mary pass on 4th and 18, that should have been picked or batted down but ended up in the hands of an Auburn receiver for the touchdown for the win.

Despite being Alabama, this is probably the MOST liberal institution in the state, as well as the Crimson White being one of the most liberal newspapers out there. I'm actually surprised the editor "ok'd" the cartoon, as I have NEVER seen anything remotely pro-conservatism or anti-liberal in the paper. Every single week there is an article about some LGBT issue or feminist problem. My point being just because this is the University of Alabama, don't assume they are conservative/republican - because they (the paper) couldn't be further from those values.
If you can justify killing one man, you can justify killing every man.

The Greatest Lie is the one never told, but assumed.

Don't think that's gonna happen. You give Nick Saban a month to prepare for any team and it's bad news. Stoops has been bashing the SEC and this isn't a deflated Alabama team like when we played Utah. I'm feeling it's going to be like the Capitol One Bowl against Michigan State a couple years ago.

Re: University of Alabama's Crimson White student newspaper forced to apologize for "racist" cartoon of Obama.
Despite being Alabama, this is probably the MOST liberal institution in the state, as well as the Crimson White being one of the most liberal newspapers out there. I'm actually surprised the editor "ok'd" the cartoon, as I have NEVER seen anything remotely pro-conservatism or anti-liberal in the paper. Every single week there is an article about some LGBT issue or feminist problem. My point being just because this is the University of Alabama, don't assume they are conservative/republican - because they (the paper) couldn't be further from those values.

Yeah I've never been a fan of the Crimson White, they always seems to just blow smoke when it talks about sports. Also, every week there is an article bashing the Greek system which is the most conservative part of the entire school and it is constantly expanding.

As far as the whole school being liberal I'd have to disagree. But I don't think there's a single Greek writer on the Crimson White. [link to blog.al.com]

The entering undergraduate population might be conservative as a whole; however, the faculty is almost exclusively liberal - especially in the sciences....which then converts the undergraduate population like zombies.
