Obama, a Huli warrior and the image nincompoop
By Alfredo P. Hernadez
Obama’s face was superimposed on an image of a PNG Huli wigman in full traditional regalia. When I first saw it, I immediately recognised it as one of PNG. The Huli wigman is a tribal warrior from PNG’s Highlands. However, just before I could consider it as something to be proud of, having considered PNG as my second home, it dawned on me that there was something sinister in superimposing the US president’s facial image on one of PNG’s popular cultural icons.
So the image isn't a witch doctor but a warrior--a Papua New Guinean who resembles an Amazon Indian. It's another example of how right-wingers are trying to link Obama with the worst "savages" in history: Muslim extremists, Communists, Nazis, and Indians.
