Gee, What Do You Think Attracted Obama to This Ice Cream Shop?

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.
