Yesterday, President Obama was photographed outside the Mount Desert Island Ice Cream shop in Bar Harbor, Maine:


Notice anything familiar about their logo?

It’s pretty much the same thing as the “black power” logo, except with a spoon


Here’s a review of the shop from 2008:

A sign outside Mount Desert Island Ice Cream in downtown Bar Harbor features a familiar emblem in an unfamiliar way. The logo of the black power movement — a raised fist — clenches a spoon.

Shop owner Linda Parker thinks the tongue-in-cheek sign adds some spice to typically bovine advertisements.

“Everyone has seen enough cows in the hillside,” she says.

Well, the sign is an attention-grabber, and it grabbed Obama’s attention, that’s for sure.

Since nothing happens in this administration that isn’t planned out in advance, it’s almost as if this is an “in your face” about Obama’s Attorney General’s dropping the voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party. Or is it just a coincidence and he just wanted some ice cream and the closest shop just happened to be one with a black power logo? Eh, could be.

    Wonder which agency handled(paid for) the “ice cream procurement”? Did the owner ask for tax breaks?

    The One is a southpaw wearing his watch on his left arm holding his cone with the right.

    Hard to tell if he ordered
    Pelosi Peach,Rocky Reid or Frank Fudge.

    These pigs love to indulge on rich foods and sweets, but go around preaching a different message that we poor, lowly ones should not eat these foods.What hypercrites.

    I am, so disgusted about having a different plane for that stupid dog. These people have no class. They are just commers living like the rich on our money.

    Don't you think it would be good to at least get the one fact right? It's Bar Harbor not Bay Harbor.

    Don't tell the Obesity Police — that would be his wife — about this.

    Thanks for the chuckle. You teabaggers really are embarrassing yourself. I didn't think it was possible that you teahadists could find a new low to sink to, but your fake outrage over Obama's choice of ice cream locale really "takes the cake" [no pun intended]. I should feel sorry for you like I would feel sorry for the retard working at Pizza Hut, but I will continue to feel joy knowing that you unhinged teabaggers can be outraged over the most inane and banal issues. Enjoy!

    That sounds like communist talk to me.

    A completely INSANE take on a friggin ice cream shop, fer gawd's sake! Where the he// do this nutcase ideas come from? Can't wait to share this with my teens – they'll love it!

    People that use the term "teabag" must have a fetish for this sexually explicit act…they bring it up often enough and must marvel at how they get away with its crude use. Trouble is, it is directed towards people with class and do not wish to go down to that ugly level. Everyone knows that replying with a clean word like "communist" would bring about an unending tirade of rebuke. What a double-standard… what a shame. Oh, forgot to go hee hee on the pun btw..

  18. abc on August 13th, 2010 8:20 am

    You did well on your comment about the outrage over the ice cream. I notice that you chose to ignore the outrage over the first dog's private jet! How about it! Can you find a way to justify it?

  19. TAXEDENOUGHALREADY on August 16th, 2010 11:36 am

    Did you really say retard? I thought we already dealt with that issue. Oh well, c'mon Nov 2………………………

  20. UncleBob on November 3rd, 2010 8:15 pm

    Careful….. using the word "retard" is politically incorrect! C'mon super Democrat… it's Mentally Challanged"! Get with the program fool!!

  21. DaBandit on September 6th, 2011 10:08 am

    In our department, we had a black administrator that was so publicly racist, he said he would only eat brown bread over white bread. How deep can it run?

  22. DaBandit on September 6th, 2011 10:11 am

    The sign does have some significance to it. One has to wonder if those who travel with Obama made a note to send him there for a purpose?

  23. Flynn on October 12th, 2012 1:49 am

    I can think of only two reasons. It's either the ice cream there is really good or it's far enough away that his lafayette dentists won't find out.
