First Amendment or too far? You need to make the call on this, I-A-B.

Anyone who thinks presidential campaigns used to be staid and quaint affairs isn`t very familiar with the attacks leveled in partisan newspapers and handbills in 1828.

Rick_S-"Obviously hate speech"

Obviously you`re an idiot.

Is this racist? Probably.

Is this protected by the First Amendment? Yes.

What would happen if Chris Rock gave a concert at the White House and used the line `It`s time to Re-nig`? He`d get a standing ovation.

Would THAT be considered `racist`? No.

Double-standard much?

Why is one of these `horrible` and the other not? (note: any attempt to rationalize will automatically brand you an imbicile.)


EmagehtmaI-"give up the right to complain when someone keys your car."

No you don`t. One is legal, one is not.

pakalolo-"OBAMA 2012!!"

You`re in Europe, you can have him.

icklevamp-"However so is protest, I say key the car."

A criminal act is not a `protest`.

I agree with Tekinette. All politicians do these days is trash each other, they do nothing to solve any problems. It is all smoke and mirrors, they do this so you won`t notice how they pad their pocketbooks. Started with Regan, but Obama has perfected it. It is a shame that the first "black" president didn`t and won`t do anything positive to leave his mark on history. Instead he is becoming the richest "black" man in the world on our tax dollar. Too bad, but I kind of knew that would happen. Look at his background and you will see where he is going.

"caused 20 million people to LOSE their healthcare "
Um, no. It`s predicted that in the worst case scenario, 20 million people will lose their employer sponsored health care by 2019. That`s in no way actually happened already. Best case scenario is an increase by 3 million in that time frame. Read this news report for some more info.

#mitchy-boy: Welcome to IAB! Eh?
As a Canadain I have to keep a close eye on the USA, since everything they do, our gov`t is likely to copy.
There is no "free health care": Obamacare has raised peoples` rates, caused 20 million people to LOSE their healthcare AND will cost taxpayers double what was projected.
Bush ended the Iraq war. The withdrawl timetable he (and the Generals of course) set out was followed exactly by Obama.
He did kill Bin Laden, after years of Bush being criticized for `hunting him & ignoring other problems`.
He did no such thing for women. `Wage gap` is a feminist myth utterly disproven by facts.
DADT wasn`t perfect, but having no rules may or may not be better, time will tell.
Also, Clinton instituted DADT, not the Republicans, just reminding everyone!

I`m just a humble Englishman, so maybe I don`t know the full story, but why don`t people like Obama? He is bringing in free health care, he ended the war in Iraq, he sorted out Bin laden, ensured equal pay for women,sorted gay rights in the forces. Thats all i can think of for now.

Fox news has become its own religion. You cant talk a fox head out of being a fox head they are just like devoutly religious because if you try and get them to look at their beliefs in a logical way they refuse and look at you like your an enemy to them for merely presenting another side. They will never see the news they are being fed as biased....sad really that being said obama is not the living up to many peoples expectations but this bumper sticker is just like a dunce cap on wheels

OpsAss13... your reply is an article stating the bumper sticker came from a now closed website.

I didn`t question the existence of such a bumper sticker. I questioned the picture of it on the back of a vehicle. The picture looks odd to me.

Oh.... and seeking the truth and questioning the obvious that is trying to be sold to me, is never a waste of my time.

@ junkaroo,
Regardless of your feelings regarding Obama, this sticker is disrespectful of every black person (African American if you prefer) in America, and it is inappropriate for that reason. You`re perfectly within your rights to disrespect a person if you feel that need but it`s wrong to disrespect a population in order to do so.

Obama deserves any disrespect he gets at this point. No president has ever shredded the constitution as much, while having the hat of "constitutional law professor" on top.

"Renege" means to back on a promise. "Re-Nig" is poorly (if at all) disguised hate speech and has no place in our society.

Ah, clever.
Although after thinking about it for a while, I don`t think it`d be very effective to people who give things a think. The sticker`s referring to the whole slavery thing that happened in America. Bringing that up usually makes people feel sad and sorry for the people that had to go through that, and they may feel like giving Obama a fair go to make up for it. Even though he`s not a descendant of any slaves from that era.

It doesn`t even make sense. A play on words is meant to have another meaning but the meaning shouldn`t conflict. On one hand we have "Don`t re-elect the black guy" paraphrased for obvious reasons. On the other hand renig is to take back. With reference to Obama, don`t take back in 2012. The only thing to take back is votes. So don`t re-elect the black guy in 2012 but don`t take back his votes and thus keep him in office.
Guess I can`t be too surprised that one ignorant enough to be racist is ignorant enough to use a contradictory play on words.

"Free speech is allowed. However so is protest, I say key the car."

Protest means you can hold a sign saying you don`t like the sticker. Keying the car is vandalism/destruction of property...

All you brick wielding, key scratching a$$holes need to grow up and leave other peoples property alone.

Photoshopped? The size and perspective looks off? Plus the bottom of the sticker is on the recessed curve of the door handle hardware, and yet the sticker runs straight across without indenting? But maybe it was just put on.

Why are you surprised or shocked that there are racist people here? or anywhere? Heck some people would do such a thing just to get a reaction from others. Heck even an Obama zealot would post such a pic thinking they would make the other side look bad.

Not only that.... the rhetoric and vile name calling flies from both sides. This past week has been really bad. But I think it`s going to get a whole lot worse before November.

Still looks shopped to me.... But, I am not an expert on PS.

That...isn`t even clever. To renege on a deal or something would be to break it or go back on one`s word. If anything, they`re saying the opposite of what they`re suggesting; I`d say voting against the president rather than giving him a second term would be closer to reneging than not.

That`s stretching it quite a bit, it`s mostly just a fcking retarded sticker/statement that probably came from some idiot saying `Well gee, I don`t know what that there `re-nig` means, but nig kind of sounds like I am a racist!, and re means to do again, so...` and eventually decided to tie it to obama. Of course any literate human being would be embarrassed to have this thing on their car to begin with, so I think it`s safe to assume the fact that they butchered the definition isn`t going to cause too much of a problem.

So, you don`t believe in free speach? Only if they say something you like or agree with? Yes, this is stupidly racist, but they have a right to be stupidly racist if they want to. Despite hate-crime legislation which is inherantly unconstitutional, Freedom of Speach means you have to tolerate idiots like this. If you don`t then you are as bad as any other censor out there.

Not how it works @paperduck! All submissions go into a big pile (file?) and Mods look through them for good stuff!
However, Mods find stuff on their own and post it too. Especiall @FancyLad since he runs the place, but a couple of others too.
Multiple submissions happen all the time, only the "first picked" gets credited.

Is that close @Fancylad?

@Edgarska19: @Crackr didn`t say "Buck Fush" was "racist" he said it was "tasteless" (obviously!). Both are, correct?

@darkmagic14n: It is their right to speak their mind and to post whatever they want on their property. Just don`t be surprised if someone decides to punch them in the face over it... or destroy the said property the message is on. Not everyone is so reserved in holding their anger back, or just using words instead. And though it is illegal for them to punch someone in the face, I doubt I`d feel bad if the the said person had kicked the poo out of someone who would post something so pathetic and juvenile on their vehicle.

It`s arguable to say it`s covered by 1st amendment rights. However, if you display this bumper sticker, you give up the right to complain when someone keys your car. I`m no Obama supporter, but essentially calling the man the N-word on a bumper sticker is not what I would consider a logical argument against his reelection. Honestly, this just perpetuates the racist, redneck stereotype of the TEA Party. I prefer the "One Big A$$ Mistake America" bumper sticker myself. Funny, and only offensive to grandmothers.
