There Is Nothing Racist About This New York Post Cartoon

NY Post

according the paper’s editor-in-chief Col Allan:

“The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington’s efforts to revive the economy.”

Allan is obviously an idiot if he can’t even admit that the cartoon was, at minimum, in very bad taste. Given the racist notion of likening blacks to monkeys, you can’t compare the country’s first black president to a rabid, “violent” chimpanzee and not acknowledge that it was in bad taste, even if you were simply intending to go for the “it’s-so-poorly-written-a-bunch-of-monkeys-might-as-well-have-written-it” punchline (which, curiously, Allan doesn’t even explicitly say they were doing.)

The cartoon’s “author,” Sean Delonas, has a history of homophobic and otherwise offensive cartoons that people have been complaining about for a while.

Let’s hope this is the last straw to this loser’s career:
