Barbara Espinosa calls Obama a monkey on her radio program on KFNX in Arizona.
It all begins with a radio caller criticizing the President for how he’s handled the country.
CALLER: Anybody who says that they don’t know anybody who is trying to destroy this country… All you have to do is see that "rabbit ears guy" sitting in the Whitehouse and what he’s done to this nation in 3 years. I sit here wondering why I spent 30 years in the marine corps defending this country against Communism and did two tours in Vietnam.
ESPINOSA: I don’t call him guy with "rabbit ears". I call him a monkey.
Espinosa says she is not a racist. She says her last name, which is of Hispanic origin, should remove any doubt that she is racist. She also said the "monkey" comment was prompted by a Google image cartoon that was sent to her.
There is already a petition on Change.org asking for her radio program to be removed. Allison Atwell signed the petition saying:
I’m signing to send Barbara a message that there is such a thing as free speech in this country, but when you use your job as a platform to promote your racist beliefs, there are consequences.
Carlindelco at Youtube published this video to highlight the fact that George Bush was called a monkey. Here is a snapshot from his video.
