Now Why Do You Think Obama Went To This Ice Cream Shop?

Doug Powers has the explanation at his blog:

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? Could be.
According to Wikipedia, the Raised Fist is a symbol used by "Marxists, anarchists, socialists, communists, pacifists, trade unionists, and black nationalists. The raised fist is usually regarded as an expression of solidarity, strength or defiance."

Defiance of the will of the American people certainly typifies Obama.
