According to various sources, Polish foreign minister Radek Sikorski made the following cannibal joke about Barack Obama:
“Have you heard that Obama may have a Polish connection? His grandfather ate a Polish missionary.”
Now the Poles are trying to patch things up before Obama takes office under strained relations by stating the following:
“Mr Sikorski did not tell a racist joke,” said Piotr Paszkowski, the spokesman. “He was only giving an example of the unpalatable and racist ‘jokes’ that surround President Elect Obama.”
Are you kidding, of course it was racist. Funny, but racist. It was also the first of many that will unfortunately follow.
If you’ve been reading this blog then you know I’m no fan of Obama’s policies. As a matter of fact, I believe they’re detrimental to America and what it stands for and represents, but I don’t want other country’s leaders making jokes of our president.
Obama is an easy target, but he’s also going to be the leader of the free world.
And yes, you can call me hypocritical because of this post I made, but that’s really funny. So go ahead, I can take it.
