Presidential Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced today that President Obama has signed an Executive Order in the wake of the publication of a controversial cartoon in the New York Post. Gibbs explained, â€œThe Order is directed to the CEOs of broadcast and print media as well as Internet Service Providers and contributors to the internet.â€
He quoted pertinent portions of the Order:
Effective immediately, any and all references to or depictions of any of the great apes or monkeys of any description is hereby prohibited as being contrary to the Administrationâ€™s goal of racial equality.
A PRS Operative asked whether the President considered the constitutionality of such a prohibition.
Gibbs responded, â€œWe would expect a stupid question like that from a racist bastard like you.â€
Details at eleven.
