Newsweek: Hey, Whities, You’re Old, You’re White And You’re Finished


Your days are done, white man. In its November issue, Newsweek and writer David Frum want you GOP whities to know that you’re old, you’re white, and you’re finished.

Not only does Newsweek want white Republicans to know their salad days are over (and that they are racist, no doubt), but the aging magazine has done so with a cover illustration that portrays Obama wearing the uniform tunic of a Revolutionary War soldier — maybe even with allusions to founding father and first general of the armies George Washington.


Nov. 2012 Newsweek Cover

You can add this Obama-as-George Washington image to the many other Old Media claims that Obama is somehow just like some of our most revered Presidents. We’ve been told he’s somehow “just like” Lincoln, John Kennedy, and Franklin Roosevelt. Of course, he’s closer to Woodrow Wilson and Jimmy Carter, but, well, you know.

You might recall that Newsweek is soon to stop printing its hard copy, newsstand edition and will go all electronic at the end of this year. This will be Newsweek’s penultimate newsstand issue, so it isn’t a surprise that one of its last issues is as outrageous as many of its most controversial past issues.

As to David Frum, the writer of the article cited above, you might also recall that he lost his job at the American Enterprise Institute basically for not pulling his weight there.

As one AEI insider told The Daily Beast back in March of 2010, “David didn’t come to the office very much, and… Arthur [Brooks, the AEI president] arranged a lunch with him to talk about coming more often to the office to earn his salary.”
