I downloaded the Michelle Obama photo more than three months before the flap that was created when it was discovered by the masses and then drummed off of the internet. I didn’t put it up at the time because it was already out there, so there really was no point.
But a reader of mine just posted a comment about the left that struck a nerve with me and I thought that perhaps now would be a good time to put it up, along side of a GW Bush picture that dates back to August 2005. If there is anyone that can give me a convincing reason that one is offensive and the other is not, I will take it down.
The following is a comment by a guy who calls himself David London.
“Just stumbled on this website while looking for the disputed Michelle Obama pic. Found it (with difficulty). Shame that there is incipient censorship on the NET. Yes, the picture is insulting, but there is a very long tradition of insulting one’s political enemies. If you’re in politics, you just have to take it.
Calling people racists is the easiest (and sadly) most effective way of silencing them. Strangely, it is the inheritors of the Free-Speech Movement who are the most zealous censors.”
This is an incredibly clear, concise way of putting it. Kudos David London for dropping the comment. So the above pictures are for all to see. Give me a reason as to why one is offensive and the other is not. JD
