Palin Thinks Obama Wants to Go Back to the Days of Slavery!

March 17, 2012 in Cartoons, Election 2012

Again, real quotes. Sarah Palin actually said that the first African American president of the United States wants to take us back to the days before the Civil War. I struggled with this cartoon, because drawing the president grinning before a slave auction is a pretty shocking image. However, this is the visual interpretation of what she was saying. My hope is that it helps make even more clear what an outrageous statement it was in the first place.

The Obama campaign responded by using these crazy quotes in an ad; Sarah Palin and the Far Right  (source:  Obama vs Palin 2012)

And Sarah Palin responded to that ad on facebook saying she’s taken out of context, although not specifying what the context is; Let’s Talk About the Real Issues, Mr. President
