Skip to comments.GOP activist uses Facebook to compare first lady to gorilla (Rape OK, Gorilla Outrageous)
Posted on 06/15/2009 6:13:03 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA
You see, according to a report by WIS10 TV in Columbia, S.C., Rusty DePass, a prominent Republican Party activist, happened to see a Facebook post by an aide to state Attorney General Henry McMaster.
The post described an escape by a gorilla on Friday from the Riverbanks Zoo in Columbia.
DePass, once a state Senate candidate, responded to the post with these words: "I'm sure it's just one of Michelle's ancestors - probably harmless."
Columbia Mayor Bob Coble appears to have seen no clear jest at all. He told WIS10: "You know, I think the comment is inappropriate. It's a racist comment."

Truthfully, both are outrageous. When someone with GOP ties does such things, it makes it easier for the Dems to allege we’re all racists. And the Press is happy to report it as fact.
Self inflected and permanent.
Bush was called a chimp for eight years.
Wouldn’t most leftists, who reject Creation, say that the poster was scientifically correct?
Why not agree that both were idiotic?
Probably so, Bob. Deal with living in an imperfect world.
I think it is funny. I believe it is covered by the 1st Amendment.
Not only that, but where are the Darwinists?
Don’t continue to reinforce the notion to the left that all they have to do is call us “racists” and we’ll stop criticizing them.
That’s right, Bush the Chimp and nobody complained. But this is also why the press, and everybody else spends so much time assuring each other that the very very average looking Michelle is “beautiful”. To do otherwise could be evidence of latent racism.
Fred Sanford: I’m calling you ugly, I could push your face in some dough and make gorilla cookies.
I myself would not have made this comment, or the Letterman “rape” ones either.
Neither would I. There’s just a whole lot of hypocrisy in the “outrage.”
It’s a tasteless comment. We don’t need to defend it, it ought not be defended.
I would not have made these kind of comments about either the Bushes or the Obamas.
But it is ironic - and striking - that the media seldom if ever mentioned the Bush hatred, and now is looking for any reason to tag Obama opponents as “haters.”
Most Americans don’t even know that a book, a play and a movie were made depicting the assassination of George W. Bush, while he was president. Would the media treat any similar work about Obama the same way? To ask that question is to answer it.
I’m not. To the contrary, we can and should criticize them for each misstep, for each disasterous policy and bill, for each betrayal of the people and nation. We just shouldn’t make it easier for them to undermine us.
Why not point out obvious double-standards?
Is it me or does the press characterize any GOP member involved in any controversy as being “prominent” even though we have never heard of them? Maybe it’s me.
Yes, but by morons! I don't want to sink to their level.
Every time a liberal really screws up in public, the democrats MORAL EQUIVALENCY RESEARCH SQUADS take to the field, rooting out republican acts of transgress, minor or major, that they can blow up and exaggerate to cite examples of “they do it too”.
The media not only aid and abet these witch hunts, they lead the way as the faithful suckling servants of the dishonest left.
In that photo, all bochelle was missing was her (BET b-ball cap on backwards,a BET silk jacket)and a raised clenched black gloved fist salute.
Have you noticed that the FR has attracted quite a few of those obumo metro-sexual anarchists floating trolls lately?
As it goes, a picture “says a thousand words.”
Sounds like something Letterman would say.
Remember how the left came out with articles/studies on the benefits of lying during the Clinton scandals?
And this is just some of the milder stuff.
`eff `em if they can’t take a joke.
She is one angry looking beatch.
That's mean. I've always thought of gorillas as cute.
My opinion: both the "Michelle/gorilla" and the "let's have some perverts jump Sarah's children" comments were inappropriate. Letterman was far worse, but both were completely out of line.
I have to believe MO is a Shemale.
The person who posted the comment is an idiot. Always assume that ANYTHING you post on the Internet, even a “private” email, will eventually be read by everybody.
I think Eddie Murphy was very close to reality when he related his cookout experience with his Uncle Gus.
“Your wife’s a bigfoot, isn’t she Gus. You shaved [her] down and taught her to speak.”
The left called Bush a chimp for 8 years.
How is that different from this?
Pointing out hypocrisy is not tantamount to defense.
We’re better than they are. Surely you are aware of this?
I don’t think Michelle looks like a gorilla. She is just butt ugly, inside and out IMO.
And he issued an apology, something they would never even consider doing.
Yes, the “press” don’t need anything to make a story about conservatives anyway. Spin is their game.
OK, we’ll just stick to calling her Aunt Esther.
Bush isn't black. Call Obama something else.
Instead of saying the escaped gorilla was one of Blackie O’s ancestors, he should have said the gorilla had escaped to knock-up Obama’s daughters Sasha and Malia.
There are no black or white apes. Thus to tie a racist label to the comment is stupid and intentionaly fraudulent. The lie proffered regarding the comment being racist is deliberately to hide a greater truth.
The basic position of most of the left is anti-religious/anti-creationist/pro-Darwinist. Their belief is that man evolved from apes. The comment from the activist has nothing to do with race and everything to do with the belief system of liberals ie... if you evolved from the ape, then the ape has to be your relative.
The persistent position of a liar is that no matter what you do, they will lie to oppose and discredit you no matter how careful you are. They will correspondingly compromise you into ineffectiveness.
The appropriate and ONLY antidote to this position is to grow a pare and give it back to them. Something limp-wristed Repubs and “Conservatives” have been negligent in doing.
Your comment that the activists statement was somehow “inappropriate” is a false statement, playing right into the hands of the lying left.
My recommendation to you is pull your head out of your A$$, get some whevos, and stop being a wuss.
