Hate Speech - or Joke?

I personally condemn the picture and I can't find any humor in it.  My question is simple. Does anyone else condemn this?

And who supports it? I have joked around with photoshop pictures before, but I have never put anyone in a Hitler or KKK uniform because that goes beyond being a joke and crosses over into the realms of full blown hate speech.

It's hilarious.

You can dress Obama in a Black Panther beret and patch, you can put Biden in a Klan outfit, hells - you could put Nader in whatever silly politically charged outfit you want.

If you take politics too seriously, you're just going to get even more disappointed than you already are.  Just take a chill pill and laugh at the funny picture.

Or whatever.

You're probably overly offended by this one I saw in another thread on this website.

 Haha!

Lighten up, man.  They're just silly pictures.

Bollocks!  It's just people screwing around...you should hang out on the internet more often, there's a lot worse out here than silly little photoshops.

Politicians in any country are not worth getting your knickers in a twist over, get a life and do your best for those loved and important in your life, she does not care less about you so why do you care about her. She is no Einstein with the solution to ANY problem in the US let alone the world.

Well said! 

The picture shows the bigottry and small mindedness of those who post it, not of the posted person.  If we get upset at everything that is said about politicians we like or dont, we would not have much time to enjoy life.

To me it illuminates the fear from the opposition to do and say anything to win.

Excellent way of putting it.  I wanted to say I didn't condemn it but didn't have a good way of explaining why but that pretty much says it.

I don't like the "there's much worse out there" or "why should you care?" points.  I do think people should care.  You can't say that you worry about what the rest of the world thinks about us and that you shouldn't care about silly politicians at the same time.  Plus, they are still people.  How would you feel if you or someone in your family saw that sort of stuff circulated about you?

I think Sarah will be able to laugh at the stupidity.  I did.

That's funny as hell Jafo! 

But, to curtail any thought of malice, controversy or fear of offending, I am a Black Man.

Now, ask yourself:

If this was a Nazi uniform, would all the Jews, Hungarians and Homosexuals be offended and rush off to the Museum Of Tolerance?

If she was dressed as a Turkish soldier vintage 1915 - 1917, would that anger all the Armenians who's ancestors were caught up in a near genocide?

If she dressed like Rev. Jim Jones, should you run out and hide all the Grape Kool-Aid out of fear of it being spiked with cyanide?

I'm not one of those oppressed minority members sitting around all day pointing fingers blaming the world for keeping me down for 400 years.

Why?

Because nobody can.

I'm well versed in both US and World History,  and I find that as time passes, HISTORY has slowly eroded into HIS-STORY.

Bottom line people, you have the freedom of choice.  And it is your choice how you want to walk through life.

It is also your prerogative to sit around all day and let pictures like this piss you off too!

CHOICE!  Have the common smarts to use it wisely.

The answer to your first question I believe is yes.  Perhaps not rushing off to a museum, but they would be offended.

The answer to your second question can be answered by Moderateman - since he is of Armenian descent.  I suspect he would be as well.

 Please do not confuse the picture that I just painted in your mind as examples of equally racially offensive subject matter, with the real picture posted directly in front of you.  Which I guess is meant to piss a black person off more than anyone else, because we all know historically the KKK were advocates of Black Slavery.

I guess you could try to feel sorry for these poor depraved pathetic bastards since black slavery isn't returning any time soon, what the hell do these guys have left to bitch about and protest?

To me they're just sad little ghosts who talk rather strangely and happen to have long pointed heads, an obvious birth defect due to their long line of incestuous inbreeding.

I'm just letting you all know, this picture doesn't bother me not one bit.  I find it neither offensive nor entertaining and the topic has absolutely nothing to do with my reason for coming to WinCustomize. 

One has to ask those who want to dish this kind of crap out i.e. the OP whom as we've already experienced, appears to thrive off causing controversy in these forums, can they take it when it's dished directly back at them?  Usually they can't.

I call these kind of folks Drama Queens.  And for those who fit this profile, save the drama for yo' mama.

I promised myself that I wouldn't fall into this trap, but once I saw where this was headed, I had to say something.

The answer to your first question I believe is yes. Perhaps not rushing off to a museum, but they would be offended.

The answer to your second question can be answered by Moderateman - since he is of Armenian descent. I suspect he would be as well.

And that is my point exactly Dr. Guy.

It is also a prerogative to sit around all day and let pictures like this piss you off too!

That is their choice.

I call this an example of political free speech.  Might not be to everyone's tastes and might not be how the OP would choose to exercise his right to free speech but, it is free speech as shown IMO.

Free speech is free speech , hatred or not.

If it's ok to do it to Obama , then the Soccer Mom VP candidate is fair game. She's not above playing it either

Bollocks! It's just people screwing around...you should hang out on the internet more often, there's a lot worse out here than silly little photoshops.

I know, but I was kind of taken aback to see this kind of cynical far left stuff posted here. This is the kind of thing I would expect to find at Democraticunderground or the Daily KOS. I like the moose hunting Governor quite a bit, so I guess this kind of thing bothered me more than say a Bushitler would at this point.

Ask yourself a simple question. Do you condemn the same when it happens to Obama? If so , then fine , you simply have a  narrower view of free speech and can be aplauded for taking the high road with this nonsense. If not , you're just a right wing hypocrite. IF so , call Fox , mabye you could get on Hannity and Firends or something

what far left stuff? You mean playing the same game as played on Obama ( the Muslim/Terrorist stuff? ) out on the Intertubes and on Fox?

You got it.  What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

immature and stupid came to mind.  My funny bone didn't get all tickled over this one.  And I would feel the same if Obama was mocked by the "right" just as much as I do those who feel the need to mock Sarah from the "left." 

I defend their right to this twisted sense of free speech so I guess I'll just respond with a roll of the eyes.

YEP!

Agreed.  I support it as it is free speech.  But that does not mean you have to like it, or support the author.

we all know historically the KKK were advocates of Black Slavery.

Think of the KKK crowd as the imbecile retarded sons of fascism....too stupid to distinguish/discriminate race unless it's 'painted' for them in 'black and white'.

They are the sad pathetic progeny of a society that considers 'free speech' an absolute and thus sacred.

If I were boss-hog, er, president I'd have them all round up and shot....Soylent Green for the less discerning palate...
