Now it's offensive!

The Associated Press has jumped all over a comment by the al Qaeda #2 jihadist for referring to Prez-Elect Obama as a "house Negro":

In al-Qaida's first response to Obama's victory, [Ayman] al-Zawahri also called the president-elect - along with secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice - "house Negroes."

Speaking in Arabic, al-Zawahri uses the term "abeed al-beit," which literally translates as "house slaves." But al-Qaida supplied English subtitles of his speech that included the translation as "house Negroes."

It's mighty nice of the AP to mention Condi Rice and Colin Powell now, eh? The term wasn't AS offensive when ONLY those two were the targets of such vitriol -- and from their own [African-American] countrymen! Former prez contender and all-around hack Al Sharpton was recently caught referring to Rice and Powell as "HN's" just like al-Zawahri, not to mention nouveau Communist Harry Belafonte.

This isn't to mention

... the Democrats who threw Oreo cookies (black on the outside and white on the inside) onto the stage during an appearance of Maryland’s former Lieutenant Governor Michael Steele when he was seeking a seat in Congress ...

... the Democrat bloggers who posted a doctored photo of Michael Steele on the Internet, depicting him as a “Simple Sambo” with a Jim Crow-era “black face,” nappy hair and thick red lips ...

... Democrat [cartoonist] Pat Oliphant drew Dr. [Condi] Rice as a big-lipped, buck-toothed squawking parrot ...

... Democrat [cartoonist] Ted Rall referred to Dr. Rice as President Bush’s “House [N-word]” ...

... Democrat John Sylvester characterized Dr. Rice on his radio talk show as a stupid, servile black woman, calling her an “Aunt Jemima” ... (Source.)

The only places I recall reading about these incidents was on conservative blogs. The AP didn't seem very interested in these outrageous instances of blatant racism.

Does that really surprise anyone?

Yeah Hube:

It was amusing to see the AP all atwitter because Muslim extremist terrorists "insulted" poor whittle Obama.

The AP never got so excited when GW was villified!

All I can say is F the MSM.
