Skip to comments.NBC Panelist: Ad Calling Obama A Celebrity 'Another Attempt' to Paint Him As 'Other'
Posted on 05/02/2012 5:18:14 PM PDT by chessplayer
On Wednesday's NBC Today, panelist and attorney Star Jones fretted over a recent campaign ad mocking President Obama's celebrity status and implied racial overtones in the criticism: "...what worries me is that it's another attempt to paint Obama as an 'other.' You know, they tried that with 'Oh, he ate dog meat when he was a boy.'" [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]
Even fellow liberal panelist, advertising executive Donny Deutsch, called out Jones for her suggestion: "I hope this is not a black/white issue....Star, you're misreading." Jones stood by her accusation: "When you're pointing the finger saying he's different than us in some way, I think it's a....subconscious attempt to differentiate him from the rest."
Star Jones had better remember the crook-N-Chief is half WHITE. Jones is racist for denying his mother is a white woman, not a black woman. Obama is not black, he is multiracial.
Star Jones is a racist!
sure it wasn’t “m”other?
Why would any one take you seriously?
Why mince words: Obama is an “other”. He has virtually nothing in common with most Americans, including most African-Americans.
He ate dog meat and liked it!
And the Romney dog-in-a-crate story was not an attempt to “paint him as ‘other’”?
Now, be fair. He did not say that he liked it, he said that it was tough.
And what do you do to soften up tough meat?
You beat the hell out of it with one of these:
So, Obama was just saying that he thought the dog he ate should have been beaten with a mallet that had little spikes on it. Had the dog been beaten properly, Obama would have enjoyed eating it more.

The Republic you save may be your own.
Yet Star Jones has been affirmative action’d for every gig she’s gotten
Including this one. Is that “racist” Star?
ETL;s come up with a nice campaign slogan for Obama and team... thought you would enjoy ...
I used that as a tagline on a few posts. I stole it from cartoonist Michael Ramirez:
Sometimes great minds think in the same ruts...
Sometimes great minds think in the same ruts... Thanks for the link.
That’s right. In fact, he specifically said in that book that dog was more tender than snake.
I’ve eaten rattlesnake - years ago - and remember it being tender - kind of like chicken... Then again mom was a terrible cook - and often ‘chicken’ was like rubber...
