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.

Yet questions remain…

Was Safran using his right hand or left hand? Or both, as in being a moderate?

Was he wearing a bomb vest during his “procedure”?

What picture of I-bama was he using? The Ché/Hope one? The Joker/Socialist? Something else? We have a right to know.

simulating a sex scene to an image of US President Barack Obama.

It’s pretty obvious that this was a test run of ObamaCare’s answer to proactive prostate health. No blue or red pills here. Just an Obama photo and a chair in an empty room.

Mammograms could be a “hoot[ers]” too.

If you think about it, this all makes sense. It explains why the [Anti-]American MSM has gone blind to all of Obama’s screw-ups and also why Olberman doesn’t show his palms while on camera.

Australia has several personalities which are fresh, intelligent and irreverent. Don’t really know who the American equivalents are, not Howard Stern or Michael Moore though some might make the lazy comparison. Safran is one of them. This upcoming show is an irreverent take on ‘race’. His previous show was on religion. Both pet topics for him. He currently hosts a radio show alongside a 73yr old catholic priest. Worth a listen.

Australia’s upstart comedians go through great lengths to create PR for their. It oftens bite them in the back.

PunditFight on October 7, 2009 at 2:22 AM

Obama and his buddies all jerk off to Chaves, dinnerjacket, Castro, Lennin, Stalin, Marx, the list goes on. Are the lefties upset that someone figured that out?

As for Olby…good grief. Do the left even watch this cretin? Hard to believe, well, maybe not so much for the lefties. They probably don’t even realize he’s insulting their intelligence with his crap, they just lap up what he shovels them.

I say that because I actually got a liberal that doesn’t watch a lot of these liberal tv shows to go look at Olby and see him in a different way. I told him it was all complete sarcasm and there’s no way Olby expected anyone to believe the insane crap he spews. The liberal said he laughed through the entire segment he watched. (Ok, he isn’t that smart to begin with, but it was a fun exercise).
