You’re so vain, you probably think the civil rights movement was about you

Posted on December 3, 2012 9:00 am

Remember when Neil Armstrong died, and Barack Obama honored the astronaut with … a picture of Obama looking at the moon?

Well, Saturday was Rosa Parks day, so what does the president do? Honors Rosa Parks with … a picture of Obama sitting on the bus, looking out the window.

Civil rights doesn’t mean this:

It means this:

It’s all about Obama.

Now, I’m not wanting to get off track and have a discussion about why Rosa Parks got all the attention and not the others who preceded here by being arrested for refusing to give up their seats. If you want some info about that, this link mentions a couple of instances.

Rather, I want to stay on target with Obama making everything about him.

I’m not sure if that’s the problem, or if the idiots that support him are the problem. A little of both actually.

Speaking of the Rosa Parks debate (which I didn’t want to get into), if they ever remake Barbershop, I’d like to see them change the script around just a little. Replace “Jesse Jackson” with “Barack Obama” (NSFW link).

    “I’m not sure if that’s the problem, or if the idiots that support him are the problem.” That’s Obama sitting on the bus. Supposedly most powerful leader on the planet in charge of a country that’s heading towards a second recession took time out from his post-election campaign schedule to pose for a picture to promote his black roots. Unlike most blacks in the US however, he truly is an African-American. If you’re born here, you’re just an American.

    Slight devil’s advocate here, but wasn’t that picture of Obama taken a few years back? That being said, Obama making everything about him shows just how out of touch he truely is.

  3. Basil says:

    It was posted to Twitter from the president’s Twitter account this weekend. It is indeed the picture chosen by the White House to commemorate Rosa Parks Day.

  4. ConservativeRumor says:

    Are we allowed to make fun of the bald spot in the Obama photo, or would that also be racist?

  5. Pug Mahon says:

    Someone needs to work up an image of Obama sitting next to Sad Keanu Reeves on the bench (you know the one), in celebration of that fine actor’s birthday, whenever that is.

  6. ConservativeRumor says:

    If you take a closer look outside of Obama’s window, it looks like he’s actually sitting on a bus in a museum, going nowhere.

    … Sounds like a hell of a metaphor, to me.

    John Roberts says Barokey isn’t a tax, he’s a penalty and so it’s okay for him to be the new Jesus and our ruler in chief. Meanwhile, he already has a photo ready in case Chewbacca dies.

    He didn’t even let Biden on to play the white guy in the next row….Selfish Racist !

    Define redundancy: An empty chair on a bus full of empty seats.

    I did a quick PS of this a few months ago when I first saw it.

    Bacon to Hog Whitman, that’s awesome!

    WooHoo! Linked at:

  13. Tommy the Towelhead says:

    In 1960’s Kenya, blacks could sit anywhere inside the bus, or on the roof if it was too crowded inside.

  14. Hog Whitman says:

    I am never going to come to this place again. These commenters have no sense of humanity. And they small like poop. So there.

  15. 4of7 says:

    Rub some bacon on it.

    Does that really work?
