I read the term for the first time on this website

I’m assuming they mean Obama
But what does it mean?

I think it’s because the letter O looks like the number 0.

thank you!

could it realy be that easy?

Yes. Racists are generally very simple-minded folk.

And so are Freepers. But I’m being redundant…

There’s a post on the first page that has Obama spelled 0bama, but I can’t tell whether that’s deliberate or a typo. It got too redundant to read further.

It’s probably helped by the fact that Obama’s logo is a stylized O.

I think it has something to do with this
