Armed with this observation, Mrs. Malkin began her investigation into Alma Thomas and discovered she's not one hundred percent committed to the caucasian lifestyle. Indeed, as Malkin so carefully points out, ALMA THOMAS IS A NEGRO!
Let me repeat that in case you missed it. ALMA THOMAS IS A NEGRO! And that can only mean one thing: Alma Thomas must be a filthy plagiarist.
Of course, Our Lady of the Concentration Camps wouldn't make such a claim without evidence, so she cracked opened the pages of Art in America ever so slightly and learned:
[Thomas] had seen the late Matisse cutouts at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Matisse’s work had prompted her to paint an acrylic-on-canvas version of his collage The Snail (1953), in which nearly all the original colors were reversed. Thomas named her painting Watusi (Hard Edge), after Chubby Checker’s dance hit “The Watusi.” As well as marrying high modernism with the popular culture of black America–then entering the American mainstream–the title she chose noted Matisse’s debt to African art.Yes! Yes! There it is! Right there in that quote from the fancy art book. By what appears to be Thomas' own admission, she translated Matisse's cut outs into reversed acrylic painted colors. Certainly, she did so to fool the simple minded art affectionados who would never see her painting's similarity to the Matisse piece. I mean what other explanation could their be? She was making art? Ha!
Alma Thomas might have fooled the art world with her strange non-caucasian art creating ways, but she did not fool Michelle Malkin. And she didn't fool Mrs Malkin's commenters either. Here's what they had to say:
Obama chose that painting because the artist(?) is black.
Plain and simple.
High expectations of blacks is not a trait held by the Obamas (or by liberal democrats).
Rap artists have been using tracks from real musicians for years. Same thing.
Sad to say, but “Rap” music was started by persons of Caucasian lineage.
Was it public education that allowed white people to devolve to the level that would elect a black socialist?
What may also be plagiarism is an Obama painting titled, “Whistler’s MO FO.”

Art fraud for a presidential fraud… why does that surprise you… in Obama’s ghetto, they call that “sampling” and it’s no different than BHO’s commitment to wealth redistribution… just another punk ripping-off what he can get by with…
Since blacks complain all the time and call me a racist. Since illegals are filling up my neighorbood schools and sucking up my money. Since I am tired of bending over backwards… I AM NOW A RACIST! Get them the hell out of my world.
hmmmm; seems a lot of our black master race tend to take shortcuts to fame, the ny times reporter, the writer who made up the racial story, the prez of the u.s. and now an artist. is this person so dumb that they think in the art world that they could get away with plagiarism?
I wonder if Obamas prefer Kansas Fried Chicken?
