Obama Visits Black Power Ice Cream
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.
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 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.
