New York Magazine cover

by

Satire?  Parody?  This is just fucked up.

Middle America is going to really understand the nuanced humor here.  Thanks for enlightening the masses New Yorker Magazine.  Let’s see, an “Obama is Muslim” jab, with a sprinkle of “He hates America”, all mixed up with a heavy pinch of “Don’t forget they are Black”.  They gave Michelle Obama an afro!

Why not just break out the blackface, the Mr. Bojangle’s gloves and the dynamite vest too?  There isn’t even much political news right now.  Nothing is really going to crank up until the conventions so this is dropping a bomb for no damn reason.  Assholes.

    THIS IS OBSURD. WE ACTUALLY SUBSCRIBE TO THE NEW YORKER IN MY OFFICE AND OFTEN RAVE ABOUT THEIR COVER PICTURES…… EVEN IF THE EDITOR MAKES A PUBLIC APOLOGY….. A BOYCOTT IS NOT ENOUGH… I WILL NEVER PURCHASE OR RESUBSCRIBE TO THEM AGAIN!

    SINCE I’M VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE CURRENT PRACTICES OF HOW MEDIA WORKS…. SOME ONE WAS COMPLETELY AWARE OF THE REACTIONS AND EFFECTS THIS WOULD SPARK. THEY KNEW THAT NO ONE ELSE WOULD SEE THIS AS SATIRE….. ARE YOUR SUBSCRIPTIONS REALLY THAT LOW TO HAVE TO PULL THIS? “THE GOOD OL BOYS CLUB” IS BEYOND TERRIFIED OF LOSING THEIR POSITIONS…. I’M SURE THEY ARE LOVING EVERY SECOND OF PLAYING ON THE FEARS OF THE AVERAGE JOE WITH THIS “OBAMA IS A MUSLIM” CRAP!!!!!!

    WHEN BEFORE POLLS SHOWN THAT ONLY 10% OF PEOPLE THOUGHT OR WERE UNSURE OBAMA WAS OR CONNECTED TO THE MUSLIM FAITH… HOWEVER THIS HAS COMPLETELY BLOWN THIS FACTOR OUT OF THE WATER…

    I HOPE THAT PEOPLE WILL STEP UP AND ACTUALLY BE PROACTIVE ABOUT EDUCATING THEMSELVES ON REMEMBERING THAT JUST BECAUSE YOU SEE IT IN THE MEDIA DOES NOT MEAN IT IS TRUE. ITS ALL ABOUT SLANDER.

    LOL I’M PRETTY DISGUSTED ABOUT THE WHOLE SITUATION RIGHT NOW AND UNABLE TO MAKE COMPLETE SENTENCES… HAHA SO LEMME STOP WHILE I’M AHEAD!!!!! THANKS FOR SHOWCASING HOW RIDICULOUS THAT WAS… I LOVE THIS SITE!!!!!!!

    The phrase “terrorist fist jab” never ceased to bring a smile to my face. It is so obtuse and unintentionally funny that it makes Fox News look as bad as it really is. This cover, on the other hand, is a faithful reproduction of a terrorist fist jab. Only without the funny part.

  5. Drunk Punk Says:

    Total bullshit. Fuck the New Yorker. They should go back to putting Lindsay Lohan’s tits on display.

  6. Denver Says:

    It’s a jab regarding Fox News exploiting the knuckle bump the Obamas did in passing. Fox called it a “terrorist fist-jab” (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/06/09/fox-anchor-calls-obama-fi_n_106027.html). Pretty sure The New Yorker was just mocking Fox News, not the Obamas.

    Great work by the New Yorker! Sometimes comedy\satire goes way over everyone’s head.

    Nice job by WILL to blame “white america”. If this was a “white america” guilt fest all of “white america” would be to blame. So quick to pull the race card. But as long as the lemmings continue to buy into the race distinctions the class distinctions will be a secondary issue.

    Bottom line, this smacks of the “can’t make fun of blacks” mentality. When can we take of the kid gloves? What makes the funny is the outrage.

  8. Will Says:

    yeh, my white friends get a little edgey when I bring up White America.

    Bwfull: Sorry, it’s taken me so long to get to this. Are you serious? The attempt at satire didn’t go over anyone’s head my man. Everyone gets what they were trying to do. We just all know that it was a dud. It’s not witty, it’s not insightful and it’s in bad taste. The mere fact that you’d even begin to talk about it from the perspective of playing the “race card” is emblematic of why shit like this shouldn’t be in legitimate publications. People like you are so quick to try and catch black people in some form of “reverse racism”… Can’t “make fun of blacks”? That wasn’t even the New Yorker’s intent. Get your head out of your ass for a half second, get over your own issues and then analyze it clearly. We have a nation full of idiots who actually believe he’s muslim. They actually believe he’s an agent of Bin Laden, trying to take down the US government. This cover won’t change the minds of our mental midgets. It will give them an opportunity to expand there backwards ass beliefs. It’s not about Obama’s status as an African American, at least not to us. I can see it probably is to you, since your knee jerk reaction is to go there. Like it or not “white america” of which I am a member, is the reason why bullshit like this is published in the first place. White America made LeBron look like a monkey on an album cover too, was that playing the race card? How about this, accept what “we” are actually doing, the images we perpetuate…. and Class issues? How is that even relevant to the cover? Oh, I forgot, it’s not.. Just your bullshit ass stump speech. Take that shit somewhere else. Thx.
