Leftists figure it's fair game to insult Rice's race -- after all, she's "only a conservative"

Leftist columnists and cartoonists have opened up with both barrels on Secretary of State-designate Condoleezza Rice. As many remember, moonbat Ted Rall used his waste of space in newspapers everywhere this summer to insult Dr. Rice's race. Project 21 sent a formal letter of protest (under my signature) to Rall's synidcator, Kansas City-based United Press Syndicate, demanding Rall's removal from their slate of cartoonists, barring an apology. We also sent letters to the National Association of Black Journalists, the NAACP and Rainbow/PUSH, asking for their support in the matter.

United blew us off, saying that it was a free-speech issue; the NAACP sent us a form letter that basically said thanks, but no thanks; and from the NABJ & Jesse Jackson, we heard crickets.

Just last month, political cartoonist Jeff Danziger went down the same racially insulting road. At least Danziger had the where-with-all to pull the cartoon after a ruckus ensued over it's content.

Well, now that Dr. Rice has been nominated as the next Secretary of State, the moonbats are crawling out of the woodwork.

Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Pat Oliphant has scrawled cartoons for multiple days of Dr. Rice as represented by a parrot with exaggerated lips, bucked teeth and dark skin, perched on a pirate's (President Bush's) shoulder.

A new column in the UK's Mirror newspaper continued the insult-fest.

IF THERE were a monkey in the White House - and many reckon there is - then his trainer would be the world's most powerful person.
Other political cartoonists made Condi fodder for varying degrees of insulting fury across the nation.

As I've said here and elsewhere though, I'm not holding my breath waiting for any outrage on the part of the "soul patrol." After all, both the "soul patrol" and the remainder of the leftists out there have proven that racist statements against blacks are OK (contrary to their constant bleatings), provided they're against blacks who happen to be conservative.

Well gosh, Mike; you were expecting a fair assessment of Dr. Rice's accomplishments, no doubt?

I can understand the pirate association
Ms. Rice is an abxolute treasure.
I'm 79----I'm not too much into hero worshiping. There are exceptions----Ms Rice is one

I guess you've never seen a political cartoon before. Let me explain, since apparently you haven't. In political cartoons, physical features are lampooned and exaggerated, no matter what your race is. Now do you understand?

The cartoons are very much racist in nature. I hope there is a very strong outcry against them.

However the article IMHO is not. If you read the full article is appears the "monkey" being mentioned is President Bush and Rice is the trainer. Even the 2nd sentance of the article makes that clear when it says "In the case of George W Bush, almost everything he knows about foreign policy has been learnt from Condoleezza Rice." So this article has to be taken in full and not in part. It is not at all racist. Although it is very disrespectful to the President.

But who would expect a respectful article from the UK press? We'll see who they want help from next time a threat is on their doorstep!

Let's try it on the other foot. If Rush Limbaugh had done a cartoon about Jesse Jackson and Clinton in a similar fashion, lefties like you would have screamed until hoarse. The soul patrol would have been advocating the death penalty.

And you know it.

Damned hypocrites.

The Inspector is right. What if Cox & Forkum produced an ad depicting Jackson or Sharpton as stereotypical blacks? The liberals would come unglued. Of course, those two fellows are too classy to do such a thing, but the comparison is telling.

I think that having Ted "What Gall!" Rall and the other liberal asshats expressing the sentiments of a growing number of left-of-center voter is actually helpful. It promotes discourse about race and the divisive issues that the "Party of Inclusion" have been pimping for years. As the libtards continue to alienate more and more of their constituency, the Republicans will surely benefit.

I am only glad to have the great opportunity to live in the south and not have to read the garbage you people put out. I typically love political cartoons, however, your group goes well beyond any reason. Hopefully, I will never have to live near your rag circulation

Um, actually, Pat's been drawing her as a parrot for quite awhile now - long before she was being considered for yet another job she isn't qualified for.

See, Condi's been Bush's parrot since the beginning and Pat has been portraying that literally in his cartoons.

This is just another conservitve right wing way of trying to make the left look like something they are not.Racist. That belongs to the Rebublicans!Please,Condi has the rebal flag on her back.Any African-American that supports Bush has a hidden racial backing.
