Republican "Jokes" that First Lady is a Gorilla

There are 2445 comments on the www.thesaudavoice.com story from Jun 16, 2009, titled Republican "Jokes" that First Lady is a Gorilla. In it, www.thesaudavoice.com reports that:

Here we go again! It seems that with each new day comes a new racial insult, epithet or extremist rhetoric at the hands of a Republican - directed at the Obamas, of course. Afterward, it is promptly followed by the predictable and disingenuous apology with an, "I had no idea it was offensive" or "if anyone was offended" statement attached to it. The latest perpetrator (or, for right-wing idealogs or extremists = freedom fighter, truth speaker, or "real" American) is GOP activist Rusty DePass.

Last week, a gorilla escaped from an exhibit at South Carolina's Riberbanks Zoo. Trey Walker, advisor to South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster, commented on the escape on his Facebook page. Mr. DePass responded to the post with the following comment: “I’m sure it’s just one of Michelle’s ancestors — probably harmless."

She should be given a special cage at the Harlem Zoo. There, she can raise cats and all the visitors will think, "how cute that gorilla takes care of 25 cats".
Also, they could set her free in the Congo.
I like Obama and Michelle and the adorable kids. You sound "jealous" because they in office.

Maybe you should build that cage for yourself since your acting like an animal! LOL

I don't remember any Democratic politicians referring to Barbara Bush or Laura Bush as any kind of animals. Like I've said tons of times; Republicans today are the meanest people. Just turn on any radio and TV program featuring the Republican point of view and you'll understand what I'm talking about.

I cannot believe what I am reading!
Keep in mind that the first human came from Africa.
we are proud of ourselves and would never wish to look like pale weak things.
If anybody has issues With Barack, I guess it is because they are racist pigs and their comments will in no way matter to someone with a brain.

People make all sorts of jokes, some of them not too nice. It is sad that the GOP only finds humor in racist jokes.
DePass rents his wife by the hour.

We are all created in the image and likeness of God.
All of us have something special to give to the world and our different variations in skin color makes the world a more colorful and beautiful place to be.
For those ignorant people, the skin color is as a result of a pigment called melanin.
People born in areas with more sun need it to survive and those brothers and sisters in the western countries do not really need much of it.
We can all make the world a better place by eradicating ignorance.
We are all beautiful in our own special ways.

Nobody was calling Sara Palin a pig. The comment was referring to her views on policies. What this jerks said was a mean thing to say. Yet, the Republicans jumped all over David Letterman for what he said about Sara Palin's daughter.

Michelle Obama is a Class Act, everybody can't look like a supermodel.
All White women are not pretty, Nancy Regan,Hilly, Chelsea, Nancy Poloski nor is Joe Bien's wife attractive.
Most White women, Black women and some Asian women as they get older look matronly with a small percentage of women and men who are in the "more attractive range".
Most White women/Black women/Asian women that I see on the day to day over the years, most are average looking.
Rusty DePasse is ugly, he had to "Buy a woman"! Overweight, bald, has turkey-neck, pot belly and arrogant. The only reason why Rusty has a woman is because "he brought her" after 5 years she'll bail out divorce him and find someone her age! Besides his young wife is not attractive, she just short, thick and has large fake breasts.
