  • Obama Halloween mask is now racism




    When an employee at the Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Kentucky showed up to a recent costume party in a unique getup featuring Obama’s likeness wearing a straitjacket, it appears there was scarcely any negative reaction. In fact, the employee performed a routine along with other colleagues that resulted in a third place finish for the dressed-up team.

    After the party was over, however, a hospital official issued an apology for the ostensibly offensive costume, explaining that employees will not be allowed to wear such attire at future events. While some would contend that even that action was an overreaction, the Human Resources vice-president was not satisfied with merely offering a statement.

    Each employee of the medical center — about 750 total — will now be required to take diversity training classes as the result of one staff member’s innocuous costume.


    The local newspaper is a subscription-only site, but the "teaser" gives a rather interesting detail:

    A picture of a Jennie Stuart Medical Center employee wearing a President Barack Obama mask and a straitjacket was taken Friday at the hospital’s annual costume party.

    The man wearing the mask is accompanied by two African-Americans dressed as security guards. The three hospital workers in the photo are identified as David Jones, DeWayne Oliver and Mike Hobson, and the group won third place in Jennie Stuart’s costume contest for their skit titled, “VIP Special Delivery.”

    Whoops! Someone's hollow cries of "racism!!!1!1!!" has jumped the shark. Now, you're a racist if you criticize or lampoon Obama even if you're Black.

    See the picture on our local television coverage.


    Where were these people's complaints about how "one must respect the President" back when it was Bush getting lampooned (and indeed frequently outright threatened), not just at Halloween? Oh, wait. That's right. When it was Bush, it was "free speech" and people were just "expressing themselves in a harmless fashion."

    People getting Obama Halloween masks was a good thing according to the Leftist media back when it meant certain victory for the lord and savior. Now it's "insensitive" and "offensive." What abject, festering bullshit.

    Big law suits and bathroom toots;
    We're all getting Dixie-fried.

      Clearly, that man hates Barack Obama because he's Black.



      Which is sort of a problem, like dividing by zero.
