The Koolaid Drinkers Are At It Again!!

Okay, the Obama lunatics have gotten utterly ridiculous!! Have you heard about this story?

Japan phone company pulls 'monkey' ad that hints at Obama

(CNN) — A Japanese cell phone company has pulled one of its television ads that used a monkey that appears to portray Sen. Barack Obama.

The commercial opens with a crowd rallying behind a well-dressed monkey speaking from a podium. The supporters are cheering and waving signs that say “Change.” In the ad, the monkey was encouraging users to change providers.

The company behind the ad, eMobile Ltd., insists it had no idea of any racial undertones and says the ad was just a nod at Obama’s worldwide popularity.

Eric Gan, president of eMobile, points out that their company’s mascot is a monkey – an animal revered in Japan — and has been used in previous ads.

“When we saw the idea for the first time, it was ‘Hey, you're copying the idea from the presidential election in the U.S.’ Yes, but, you know, that's how you make a presentation. How you make an impact. We thought it quite was interesting,” he said.

Bloggers immediately voiced their disapproval of the ad and accused the company of being racist.

Gan says the company was unaware of how the ad might be interpreted, but “now, of course, we know.”

This is just completely asinine. Now the company is pulling the ad. Why should they? I didn't know that Barack Obama owned the word CHANGE. When did he copyright it? I must have missed something.

The Koolaid-drinking Obama lunatics actually think that this is racist. I'll tell you what is racist. The racists here are the Obama lunatics who would equate a monkey with a black person. The Japanese and this company in particular didn't equate a monkey with Barack Obama or any black person for that matter.

The point of this cellphone ad is to get people to switch cellphone providers. It is not to mock Barack Obama. It is not "stealing an idea from the U.S. Presidential election". It is not racist.

If you question Barack Obama, you're a racist. If you ask Barack Obama a question, you're a racist. If you say anything about Barack Obama, you're a racist. If you don't support Barack Obama, you're a racist. If you don't kiss Barack Obama's ass, you're a racist.

Enough already!! We're sick and tired of this bullshit!! What's next? A call for a boycott of Japan, and anything Japanese? Sanctions? A war against Japan? When is this bullshit going to end?
