Huff Poster Paints Lieberman in Black Face

On the one hand, liberals enjoy portraying themselves as models of tolerance and racial sensitivity. But woe betide someone who runs afoul of their orthodoxy. Liberals don't hesitate to bring out the crudest racial imagery to mock them.

We've all seen the vulgar caricatures of Clarence Thomas, Condi Rice and Ward Connerly.

Add Joe Lieberman to the liberal media hit list. Have a look at the image of Lieberman that popped up at Huffington Post today. It's in a column by one Jane Hamsher, who, her bio informs us, is a 'progressive blogger.'

Guess being progressive means never having to say you're sorry for resorting to this kind of stuff to make a political point.

Hat tip to Little Green Footballs.

There were ugly racist cartoons drawn attacking Condaleeza Rice too.

The socialists are vile in their propaganda (whether they be Nazi, Communist, or Green).

"Diversity" and "Tolerance" are words used to sell their brand of thought control. They do not actually embrace those principles. If you oppose their political agenda, you are "the enemy" and can be depicted in an ugly fashion regardless of what you might think their "rules" say about such depictions.

They aim low because they are slime.

Well stated. They are filth and need to be judged and treated like exactly what they are.

Even more sad is the fact you know full well the lefties are counting on this "graphic" (they were careful not to call it a photo) will get out, and someone will believe it to be genuine, thus further hurting Leiberman.

I've often wondered what it would be like to go through life with absolutely no sense of shame, no decency, no decorum, and not a shred of dignity. Now I understand all I have to do is change my voter registration to "Democrat" and I can have all that with no apparent consequences whatsoever.

The linked NewsBusters article has links to the racist cartoons of Condi, Clarence Thomas and one showing Ward Connerly as a marionette.

JMO, Lieberman is going down in next weeks CT. democrat primary.

The moonbats have taken over the American democrat party.

Also, the lefty fascist moonbats think nothing of using blackface to make their point, afterall the DUmmies and KOSkids are so much smarter than everyone else in thier little minds.

Also where is al gore? Not only is he a sore loser, he's a fair weather "friend".

Ok, I have to ask, because it's driving me nuts (and if I am betraying my ignorance here, I welcome correction).

How is Jane Hamsher (whose colum featured this "graphic") different from Mel Gibson?

And for some reason, the first thing that comes to mind is the blackface scene from "The Jazz Singer" starring Neil Diamond.

Leaving aside the image's vulgarity for the moment, just what was the message supposed to be? Lieberman as slave? But in announcing that he will run even if he loses the primary, Lieberman is acting very independently. He is being the diametrical opposite of someone who slavishly follows another's orders. Indeed, the Dems complaint is that he is NOT taking orders from his Dem masters! So on top of everything else, the image is just plain dumb.

Even by the low standards of Ned Lamont supporters, this is appalling, and something the Connecticut Ping List will have plenty to post about.

That image is supposed to be funny, right? Putting black-face on a Jew?? That is funny to liberals??? This is vulgar and disgusting.

The irony is that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are campaigning for his opponent the very day this image is exposed.

Meanwhile, Mel Gibson is reviled as the poster boy for Jew hatred from our beloved liberal media.

Lieberman is going to win as an Independent.

It's predictable. Whenever anyone on the left does anything racist, it goes nowhere in the leftist-dominated media.
Whenever anyone on the left misconstrues anything that anyone on the right says, it's all over the leftist-dominated media. It's so blatant, so obvious that we don't need to recall examples.
Nothing that we see in the leftist-dominated media is worth any credibility at all.

Notice the faux Republican graphic atop the Huffington web page on which Jane Hamsher "apologizes."

People who glance quickly at the page will associate Hamsher with Republicans.

Huffington Post is a weird amalgam of DU, Kos, and Liberty Forum. All crackpots all the time.

Lamont exposed - he tried to pretend he doesn't even know there are bloggers around his campaign, but apparently cbsnews.com didn't get the new Lamont campaign memo:
