At the Family Research Council’s Value Voters summit in Washington D.C. this month attendees caught speeches by Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, while vendors hawked conservative-minded products and knick-knacks, including a controversial product called “Obama Waffles.” The waffles feature multiple caricatures of Barack Obama; on the cover he is drawn with wide eyes and a large grin, on the back of the box, he wears a sombrero, and on the side, he is pictured wearing a turban-like head covering. The waffles were conceived by Bob DeMoss and Mark Whitlock who claim the product is in no way racist, even though the box features a “Bling Bling Waffle” rap, a suggestion that the waffles will taste better if pointed towards Mecca, and a recommended serving size of “four or more illegal aliens.”
