NAACP protests anti-Obama poster outside strip club
The Richmond Times Dispatch ^ | September 29, 2009 | Joe Macenka

Posted on 09/29/2009 4:24:47 AM PDT by Captain Jack Aubrey

The Virginia NAACP called it an abomination and a sign of disrespect. The owner of a downtown Richmond strip club called it exercising his right to free speech.

About three dozen people attended a lunchtime protest yesterday outside Velvet, where a new banner on one of the exterior walls depicts President Barack Obama as the Joker of "Batman" movie fame.

Of course Americans hate socialism because Obama was born of a white mother.

Picture at link; much better picture was in paper this morning. If I can find it I will post it.

No worries about the possibility of black women inside stripping for a living and whoring on the streets? No worries about black kids killing each other in Chicago and everywhere else. No worries about 70% of black babies being born outside of marriage. No worries about the black community being almost totally dependent on the government for every aspect of life. Only worries about white folks being racist enough to be critical of the President.

That’s one of the drapes from inside the strip club.

Unfortunately, the building houses a strip club and the owner is no paragon of moral virtue. It doesn’t help the cause!

This “magic negro” has set race relations back 30 years.
I know I trust blacks a little less after this marxist ass clown.

They’re angry because Obama was painted as a WHITE joker.

“How dare they make Barack look like a Honkey!”

With good reason, too.

They voted for Obama for two reasons.

1. He’s perceived as black

2. He promised to use the government to take money from whitey and give it to them.

Perhaps it is symbolic of his being a naked communist.

To be fair, they are a little annoyed about that. ACORN and Obama's other supporters think that work should go to illegals, preferably Hispanic girls aged 13-14.

It's a work of art and a sign of patriotic disrespect. After all, as Pelosi and her socialist friends told us for eight years, "dissent is patriotic".

Why respect him? What has Oboma done to earn it? Can anybody name one thing he's done right so far? Hello? Is he expecting some kind of freebie for this, too?

And though he is trying to dismantle America, his ratings with blacks is unchanged.

I personally will look at ALL blacks as quota boys after this p.o.s.

One of the best posts underneath the story:

"When you own a strip club, there is no such thing as bad publicity."

I think that about says it all. From reading the story, I agree with his right to hang his sign and agree with the sign, but I wouldn't be lining up to stand behind this guy. Not only does he own a strip club, but in the article it says he was convicted of three misdemeanors when he had sex with a minor and filmed it (I guess he was doing home porn to sell???). Not a nice guy....

If it had been a BUSH “Joker” poster, they’d be praising it for it’s artistic value, and demanding an NEA subsidy for taking it around the country to show school children....

The hypocrisy of these people knows no bounds.

If it had been Bush, Beck, Rush or any White guy, the Muslim leaning NAACP would applaud.

I know this mentality. I have seen Blacks lose their minds at ANY criticism of Obama. It has gone to the point where Blacks have actually called the police to report a sign or bumper sticker critical of Obama. This is no accident. I have met Blacks who absolutely believe that it is illegal, i.e., against the law, to criticize Obama. This shows their penchant for totalitarianism as well as their expectation to be coddled and pampered by Whitey.

They are not used to being treated as equals.

Don’t know who the liberace in flowing purple robes is, but I’m willing to bet he doesn’t have to get up early each day and put in 12 hours to feed his family. Community agitator/organizer probably would be a safe bet.

It’s hard to take someone seriously, even if they’re argument is flawed, when they dress up like a clown.

I guess my point is, and I really don’t have one, is that I’m really left wondering two things: 1) Does he have a matching pontiff pointy hat, and 2) Does the flowing robe match the upholstery in his ‘72 Eldorado pimpmobile.

I have the shirt with that picture on it.

It's great, and I get people asking if they can snap cell phone pics of it too.

I wear it all the time.

Sometimes I get some nasty looks, but f em. I couldn't care less about offending Obama lovers.

In fact, I wear the shirt just as much to offend Obama @$$-kissers as I do to put smiles on peoples faces who think he's a POS.

Message vs. Messenger. The "protest" was over the sign. They didn't seem to mind the stripping.
The Oboma image was disrespectful, but the stripping was...well....respectable in their eyes, I guess.

NAACP protests anti-Obama poster outside strip club

There seems to be some moral confusion here. Where were you people before the sign went up? Were you protesting the personal degradation and economic damage strip clubs do to the community?

Oh, I see. You ordinarily wouldn't harass a strip club because that's where the guys in your leadership go for entertainment. Probably seems like sacrilege to have an anti-Obama poster there.

King Salim Khalfani, president of the Virginia NAACP. Seriously, that's his name.

Dancer Kaitlyn McGee handed out a statement from club owner Sam Moore, who did not appear. The statement described him as a “staunch libertarian” and said the banner was intended to show his displeasure with Obama’s policies.

“Mr. Moore would like to say that anyone who believes that his banner is racist is an ignoramus,” it read.

He's, no doubt, a minister at the Church of Oboma.

"The Virginia NAACP called it an abomination and a sign of disrespect. "

Of course it's "disrespect"...what on earth has the Kenyan done to deserve any "respect"? What?

If you really want to get them angry, take that monkey picture that came out with G.W.B.'s face on it, and replace the face with the Kenyan's....then they'll run to the first camera they see (they always do), wearing their African shirts and hats,and protest AMERICA.

I guess it must be the public school education this NAACP director received. It is not racism to denounce the atheistic Marxism/socialism/communism of the Obama agenda. It is absolutely the right thing to do, for any person who believes in this republic's foundation of ordered freedom and liberty. This dubious NAACP director should remember it is that same founding Freedom and Liberty that resulted in the slaves being free here...how ungrateful and wrongheaded he is to align himself with an ideology, Barack Obama’s ideology, that enslaves an entire populous to serve State interests and denies the dignity of EVERY human person - socialism/communism/Marxism.
