The New York Post, Racist “Journalism”, & Right Wing News

I’m not a huge fan of mainstream news. There is certainly a cultural bias when it comes to their brand of journalism. But the latest example proves that there’s a slant so obvious that makes you wonder why anyone would refer to it as ‘news’.

The DailyKos got wind of a gem from the New York Post back in December of 2013. Since it was purchased by the asshole Australian head of News Corp Rupert Murdoch, it became tabloid fodder for angry white men. Now, in its recent assault against everything journalism defines, it – like much of the conservative press – took aim at the Commander-and-Chief and reduced him to the racist caricature of a sex-hungry negro looking for some white ass. It’s all in full bloom in the front page of the latest edition with a picture of President Barack Obama laughing with the Prime Minister of Denmark Helle Thorning-Schmidt.

I guess black men and white women can’t be seen together, let alone converse with each other, especially if they’re world leaders. You know why? ‘Cause we luvs to fuck some white bitches an’ shit.

The NY Post, following in the footsteps of the National Enquirer, chose to make something out of nothing for sales. The only thing they got going for them are the infamous photos of Obama and Schmidt together talking an iPhone selfie. What’s more painful is their blatant use of racism that opens up old wounds from the past and sexism that reduced the Danish politician into a mere piece of ass:

“Just as in Blazing Saddles, the Post’s front page calls forth one of the most disgusting racist tropes in our country’s history: the sexually aggressive black man pursuing a white woman. And it’s all the better that in this case she’s blonde. Over decades, this trope resulted in the lynchings of thousands of black men accused, in some cases, of doing little more than looking a bit too long at a white woman. The brutal murder of Emmett Till falls into this category.

The front page of today’s New York Post sought to tap into exactly those sentiments, and to direct them at the President of the United States of America. Let that sink in for a minute…

Oh, and let’s not forget the sexism of that front page, which essentially called Helle Thorning-Schmidt, the Prime Minister of Denmark, a sex kitten, not to mention “red hot.” Sexualizing (or, as Rush Limbaugh did to Sandra Fluke, slut-shaming) any strong and/or threatening woman is typical for the kind of right-wing thinking represented by the Post. And, of course, notice that the Post says that she is “O[bama]‘s,” itself another way of reducing her to being just someone else’s sex object.”

This article was written by Andrea Peyser, going so far as to refer to the Prime Minister as “the Dane”:

“Thorning-Schmidt placed her hands dangerously close to Obama’s side. The president’s cackling head moved inches from the Danish tart’s and yards away from his wife’s. Obama then proceeded to absorb body heat from the Dane, which he won’t be feeling at home for a long time…

…Here was the president, publicly behaving as if he was plotting his next hook-up.”

Maybe taking a selfie at the funeral for one of the world’s more courageous leaders was in bad taste. However, I doubt they would be crying if it was George W. Bush. I highly doubt they would make up stories of his sexual appetite using mere photos. But since this is a black democrat – a liberal – their anger is bubbling over in the form of racism this country wants to deny heavily but can’t conceal, nor won’t fix, no matter how hard it doesn’t try.
