Obama: New Yorker cover insults Muslim Americans

CHICAGO — Democrat Barack Obama said on Tuesday that the New Yorker magazine’s satirical cover depicting him and his wife as flag-burning, fist-bumping radicals doesn’t bother him but that it was an insult to Muslim Americans.

“You know, there are wonderful Muslim Americans all across the country who are doing wonderful things,” the presidential candidate told CNN’s Larry King. “And for this to be used as sort of an insult, or to raise suspicions about me, I think is unfortunate. And it’s not what America’s all about.”  More fron the Houston Chronicle

Of course, if it is a conservative candidate or President Bush, cartoonish satire is ok, but if it is Barack Hussein Obama…  well, that is another story.

I found it interesting listening to Rush yesterday when he said the following:

Now, who gets upset over stupid cartoons?  Muslims.  (interruption) No, I do not wish to refine that remark.  I want to make sure that remark is heard and quoted accurately.  Let me try it again.  Obama and all these people are upset about this New Yorker cartoon.  Well, who is it that gets upset about stupid cartoons?  Muslims, radical Muslims, radical extremist Muslims are the ones that get upset over cartoons.  Now back to the audio sound bites.  Bob Beckel, Fox News Channel, Fox & Friends this morning, the fill-in cohost Clayton Morris asked Beckel and Monica Crowley, who was also on the program, about the New Yorker cover, and Crowley said to Beckel, “Why didn’t Obama just laugh this off?  It’s satire.”

The Obama-ites are getting a bit sensitive, don’t you think?  Have they forgotten a little thing called “freedom of speech” or does that not apply to anything that isn’t favorable to their proposed “savior” – the potential first mulatto presidential candidate?
