Aussies scandalized by comedy show featuring man masturbating to photo of Obama

posted at 5:36 pm on October 6, 2009 by Allahpundit

We already have a version of this show. It’s called “Hardball.”

Set me up for the easy joke, baby, and I’m going to take it every time. Every time.

‘John Safran’s Race Relations’ shows the skit involving the presenter simulating a sex scene to an image of US President Barack Obama.

The segment in the first episode of the show depicts Safran masturbating to President Obama inside a Palestinian sperm bank, and also encourages a Palestinian film crew member to do the same inside an Israeli sperm bank.

Australian Family Association spokesman John Morrissey described the show as “filth”…

“The sperm bank story is an edgy comedy sequence about the ideal of cross-cultural harmony,” the spokesman said.

Really? It’s not a satire of media hype over how much the world loves Our Savior even though, when it comes to translating that love into policy concessions, he’s been left, er, empty-handed? A lost opportunity, my friends. Maybe SNL will take up the idea next week, if they can figure out how to turn it into a critique from the left.

Needless to say, I’m looking forward to CNN fact-checking this one. In lieu of an exit question, here’s a piece of video I’ve been meaning to post today but for which I couldn’t find a good peg. I don’t know what made me think to add it here. Brace yourselves — for the fight against death.

With Brian Williams holding the photo. And Katie Couric selling tickets. With Bill Schneider commenting on how popular it should be. As Charlie Gibson claims he didn’t see anything.

Should’ve known from the headline that it was John Safran. He’s always been about shock value. He was the object of a devotional crucifixion a few months ago.

Well, to each his own, but I don’t agree. I know he got in trouble with some of Beck’s fans recently because he said that he disagreed with Beck’s assertion that we are better off with Obama as president than are we with McCain.

So, I guess it just depends on what kind of circle it is.

Fight against death. Is that a show re the death of his show. Oberman has no viewers becaus he’s no good. He is a ranting lunatic. He tries to bait people into arguments so they’ll talk about him. He tried this with O’Reilly and Rush. Rush simply ignored him but O’Reilly mentioned him a couple of times and then figured it out. Then ignored him. He’s pathetic.

Lindsey, speaking in front of La Raza, after receiving an award, called anyone who opposed amnesty ‘BIGOTS’ and told us to ‘shut up and sit down’.
As the wife of one of the BIGOTS that protects that border, that dotted line, between US citizens and the Mexican drug cartels, I have absolutely NO LOVE for such a waste of skin.
Also, the Sonya Sotomayor vote didn’t endear him to me….
