Obama Visits Black Power Ice Cream

Coincidence? Obama enjoys a scoop

A Saturday jaunt to a Maine ice cream parlor by US President Barack Obama has brought serious concern after analysis of the the shop’s logo shows a striking similarity to the logo used to represent Black Supremacy in America.

Obama was photographed Saturday by reporters enjoying a scoop of vanilla in front of Mount Desert Island Ice Cream in Bar Harbor, Maine, which proudly advertises its “fearless flavor” on its website. However, its black,  clenched-fist logo bears an uncanny resemblance to the one created to represent the supremacist movement in the 1960’s.

In fact, store owner Linda Parker admits to intentionally modeling her logo after that of the Black Power Movement, telling a reporter in 2008,  “Everyone has seen enough cows in the hillside.”

The US Justice Department has come under scrutiny recently after its Obama-appointed Attorney General, Eric Holder, threw out a case of voter intimidation against members of the New Black Panther Party.

Black Power and Ice Cream Logos

Since then, former Justice Department lawyer J. Christian Adams has come forward to tell the American public that racial “payback” is underway at the Justice Department, against Whites in favor of Blacks.

Republican Congressman Frank Wolf has asked the Inspector General to investigate possible Obama Administration involvement with  the Justice Department on its handling of the New Black Panther voter intimidation case.

“Something is rotten” at the Justice Department, Rep. Wolf says.

Why President Obama chose to patronize an establishment with such a politically-sensitive logo at this time is uncertain. Some speculate that his handlers, or Obama himself, decided on the press shoot to send a subtle message to his core radical base.

UPDATE (July 21, 2010): The Bar Harbor Times, a local newspaper in Bar Harbor, Maine, picked up on this article and the controversy it started. They even interviewed the owner of Mt. Desert Island Ice Cream, Linda Parker, who called this report “crazy.”

UPDATE (July 22, 2010): More MainStream Media coverage of this article from CBS News and NY Magazine, of all places.

UPDATE (July 23, 2010): This article inspires a Barack Obama Ice Cream naming contest (winner: Barocky Road w/Marxmallows), and the influential (yet left-leaning) DC blogger Wonkette also does a write-up.

    hahahah. you people are so over the top with your paranoid ignorance about your own country. Bar Harbor, Maine is located in the state that is tied for first, second, or third most caucasian US state with Montana or North Dakota. Secondly, the “rich” are congregated on a self incorporated sliver of land known as Northeast Harbor and VISIT there from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The rest of the year, the year round voting and taxpaying inhabitants make less than most of you – check out the census bureau on that one. If you ever get up there, visit the Hancock County fair (Bar Harbor, MDI, Ellsworth, Bucksport and Blue Hill) and you’ll see for yourself that Maine is tied with West Virginia for having worst dental problems in America; an indication of high incidence of poverty

    Bill, in what way did he “just tax small businesses a trillion dollars?” He just passed new small business tax credits. You need to stop drinking the Rush Limbaugh/Fox News/Glenn Beck kook juice. As to small business, I have worked in three, my wife ran one, my parents own one, and I have plenty of relatives who own them.

    “People here are saying the woman who runs the business is white but that doesn’t matter, she’s definitely a Leftist and has sympathies with the Black Power movement.”

    And you know this how, dipshit?

    Amazing. Self hating white people posting such BS here!!!!!!!!!

  6. Sane, intelligent person says

    Silly, silly, silly.
    Just go enjoy an ice cream, everyone. How about it?

  7. Doc Els says

    Leftists don't hang out in ice cream parlors. They gravitate towards coffee shops where poetry is read. There are a few of them up here. Anyway, watch out for next weeks feature flavor, 'Barachy Road'.

    The clenched fist symbol didn’t start with the leftwing “black power” movement. It started by the Bolsheviks in opposition to the open handed Roman salute used by the Facists under Benito Mussolini and co-opted by the National Socialists. It was used first at the 1936 Spartacaid Games in Madrid Spain. Of course when Hilter signed the pact with Stalin it disapeared until the invasion of the old U.S.S.R. It is a symbol of Bolshevism which means oppression and genocide! The left loves to lie about it’s symbols that are drenched in blood!!!

  9. DEAL WITH IT says

    The saddest thing is hearing white middle-class Americans whine about how they have it so hard.
