Racism for Breakfast, Yum!

Marketed as a political satire -- Obama Waffles seem to be flavored with bigotry.

obama waffles box

Breakfast may be the most important meal of the day -- but what if you're serving your kids Obama Waffles?

The waffle mix, depicts a tried and true racial stereotype of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama -- hey kids, remember Aunt Jemima? On the top flap he's also wearing an Arab-like turbin -- just in case voters forget Obama's middle name is Hussein.

The box was meant as political satire, said Mark Whitlock and Bob DeMoss, the two writers who created the mix.

BIDEN here’s your red meat
Start going for their THROATS, bring up that this putrid racist image demeans Michelle Obama by Books A Million, and bring up Lou Dobbs buying this crud, to show media bias, and bring up Black children including Barack’s girls having to STILL SEE THIS GARBAGE in this century!
Don’t mince words, and let the shame spill on McCain and Palin Tony Perkins said was such a great ticket, and Romney and Gingrich speaking at this HATE-FEST!

As a mccain supporter I don’t think there’s nothing really wrong with this.
It’s just a waffle box and politicians waffle.

Election years are just like Christmas time - the best and worst of people come out, and usually at the least convenient time. It’s enough to make people sick, or at least show how sick people can be.

Wow…you’re a McCain supporter and you see nothing wrong with this?

Not a shocker there!

Well No Biggie, lets also add McCain to an Alzheimers commercial since he can not remember how many houses he own. Also, he does not know how terrible the economy is.

And Sarah Palin and her daughter…hmm lets add them to a box of condoms, the slogan, “If you are for abstinence only education, then you are bound to be a grandmom at the age of 30 if you do not buy these condoms now!”

Lol seriously, none of this nonsense has a part in this election. Now that we have minorities in this election, things have gone out of control. Its not about issues anymore, its about if you want to vote for a minority at the top of the ticket, or rather have one at the bottom of the ticket.

If anyone have enough since can see how desperate the McCain campaign is these days that they will do and say anything. They have the nastiest and sleaziest commercials. They are also using Obama’s words everyday. First they are using “Change” even now they are saying, “Enough.” Maybe McCain is a secret Obama supporter!

You know, I’m a Democrat and will DEFINITELY be voting for Obama. Gotta tell you, could this be a slur from the other side? Yeah, sure. But it’s actually kind of funny. Now, hopefully, they’ll come out with a line of adult diapers with McCain as the spokesman. Maybe a moose hunter’s scope with Sarah Palin as the face. And Joe Biden, that’s a no-brainer. Slap him on some Amtrack Acela commercials.

Just to clarify, I think the white “turban” on Obama’s head was supposed to mock the similar article on Aunt Jemima’s head.

On another note, this isn’t racism. They aren’t doing it because Obama is black, they are doing it because Obama is a politician. Don’t get offended so easily.
