$3 million, $5 million, let’s not quibble

July 31, 2010

Bill Clinton, scolder-in-chief about how we’re not doing enough to help Haiti, is going to spend millions on his daughter’s wedding, including tens of thousands of dollars on posh port-a-potties. How about give your little brat a ridiculously posh wedding at 3% of that cost and spend the rest on Haiti? For this alone, if for nothing else, if you don’t hate Bill Clinton, you’re a cunt.

Charlie Rangel, scolder-in-chief about how the rest of us need to pay more taxes has been dodging and evading for decades.

The Democrat Party isn’t just the party of the unworthy rich. It’s the party of an arrogant upper-class that thinks we’re just that goddamn dumb. And, from this week’s reactions to Rangel and Clinton, they’re probably right.

Every American who gets a squishy feeling about Bill Clinton and Chelsea’s wedding and feels sorry for Rangel–you’re a cunt.


Who do you believe?

July 31, 2010

The Wikileaks guys who published all the Afghanistan stuff are saying they offered the Obama White House a chance to redact what they were going to publish to make sure that they didn’t blow anyone’s cover or get anyone killed, and the White House ignored them. The Obama White House says they never did.

Who do you believe? and why?

Shirley Sherrod says the White House pushed her to pull over on the side of the freeway and resign immediately. The Obama White House says they never did.

Who do you believe and why?


The View from The White House

July 28, 2010

Really, Barack Obama went on The View?

Can’t wait to see him on Jersey Shore in the hot tub, getting the youth of America involved in his agenda.

This post ends here. I’m resisting my ODS.


Scientism

July 26, 2010

I just read this article, I don’t remember what it was about or even where it was. But it started with the standard issue paragraphs:

Until recently, scientists have not been able to explain X, but now advances in Y explain why Theory Z, which we all believed all along, is right. Or why some politically correct asinine theory that goes against all common sense is right.

Time, Newsweek and US News have a quota of at least one of these stupid articles a week. Psychology Today has a quota of at least 1 article an issue not start this way.

These days, “advances in neurobiology” account for about 90% of this bullshit breathless reporting of stupid grad student projects that get reported under the imprimatur of the venerable (or is that venereal?) institution that is sheltering these medium-management-IQ-refugees from real life. 

Kiss some intellectually faddish ass or die is the new motto of what passes for higher education in America with the exception of hard science education.


Mark Williams, exit stage right

July 24, 2010

Mark Williams is the douchebag talk show host who used to be the ringleader of the Tea Party Express, one of several Tea Party organizations.  His group has nearly half a million members.

AFTER Ben Jealous of the NAACP called out the Tea Party movement on sheltering, tolerating, embracing racists, Mark Williams posted this on his blog. AFTER, not BEFORE. This wasn’t an example available beforehand to Ben Jealous of Tea Party racism. Oh, no, Mark Williams opened his mouth,  spewed out a flaming pile of dogshit, rang the bell and ran as a RESPONSE to the NAACP:

Dear Mr. Lincoln

We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!

In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the ‘tea party movement’.

The tea party position to “end the bailouts” for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn’t that what we want all Coloreds to strive for? What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.

And the ridiculous idea of “reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government.” What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!

The racist tea parties also demand that the government “stop the out of control spending.” Again, they directly target coloreds. That means we Coloreds would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.

Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government “stop raising our taxes.” That is outrageous! How will we coloreds ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?

I hate Mark Williams more than I hate any American still alive. More than I hate zombies Pelosi and Reid. More than I hate the totalitarian dipshits in San Francisco who just banned pets and pop. More than I hate Michael Bloomberg. Are you getting it? I hate Mark Williams a lot.

Were I enamored of conspiracy theories, I’d be hoping to find video of Mark Williams taking a payoff from someone in the NAACP. But I know guys like Williams and they’re real and Ben Jealous was exactly right so let’s admit it right now:

There are a shitload of racists in the Tea Party movement. Racism isn’t the core of the movement, but as a new movement, the Tea Party is more about warm bodies than anything else. The Tea Party welcomes anyone who shows up to an event because it gives them a better chance to get on the news.  They’re not welcoming racists–they’re welcoming anyone who shows up and they aren’t checking ID.

There has been almost no overt racism at Tea Party protests. Seriously, a few signs edge up to the line, fewer cross it, and the worst are probably plants. 

 Though I hate Mark Williams, I’m glad his neurotic racist compulsions made him lash out at blacks. It gives the Tea Party the mandate to put the racists in their ranks on notice. We need to put out Racism Is Not Welcome signs. Thank you, Ben Jealous.

Because, let’s tell the truth, there are a lot of fucking hardcore racists going to Tea Party protests and they need to be ejected.  They’re not waving racist signs. They’re under cover. There’s  a lot of  “don’t ask, don’t tell” going on in the Tea Party when it comes to racism.

How do you detect these racists? Voluntary hyperthyroidism is the first sign. They’re a little bit bug-eyed and intense. They think the income tax is unconstitutional even though it’s in the Constitution. They think black people in America are a menace.  They don’t much like Jews either. And they creep you out, because you can tell they’re holding back something weird.

In a lot of people, racism is skin deep. You really can turn them around just by giving them a DVD of  “The Blind Side.” Or telling them they’re relics who aren’t welcome anymore at a Tea Party protest if they’re going to be that stupid. 

Then you have shitsacks like Mark Williams and every single asshole who still defends him.  Here’s what Williams said when forced to resign from the Tea Party Express:

“We are in a war for the future of this country and the Left and their allies in the news media have decided to use my personal comments and views as a weapon to injure the Tea Party movement and conservative activists. I will simply not allow them to do this.”

Mark Williams is a horrible deep proud racist. 400,000 people in his organization didn’t detect this or didn’t care. I find it hard to believe that Williams’ blog post was the first indication to anyone following him that he was a virulent deep racist. Mark just vomited on the Tea Party movement as a whole, though his followers are mostly 400,000 assholes, and I’m sure he at least wink wink nudged nudged in his newsletters and most of his followers ignored the racism because they liked everything else, and a few took comfort in their Nazi hearts.  So fuck you all of you. Like fuck Germans who ignored the smokestacks. No, I don’t have any of Mark’s newsletters. It’s possible he was completely in the closet until this week and none of you 400,000 Tea Party Express people knew anything about the racism of your Leader. Yeah, right. Fuck you, every one. You knew. I hate you, all 400,000 of you. But you can make it up.

All you TP Express people–Repudiate Williams in no uncertain terms. Declare yourselves not to be racists. Stand up and accept responsibility for embracing this charismatic racist turd.

Let’s get clear in the Tea Party and admit that Ben Jealous was right and we should heed his call to arms. No racist gets a pass. We purge. We probe. We go Leninist on racists.

If you’re a racist, get the fuck out of the Tea Party now. If you don’t skulk off voluntarily, we will eject you.  What is the percentage of racists in the Tea Party movement? I’m going to upper bound it at 10% and I think it’s closer to 1%. The Tea Party has gotten nothing worth getting from letting this minority of racist dipshits stand next to us without looking too closely at them.

The Tea Party should stand up and say Ben Jealous was right and that we’ll turn over Mark Williams and they can do whatever they want to him on Pay Per View. I hope it’s Thunderdome.


In Defense of Shirley Sherrod

July 22, 2010

Here’s what happens when you don’t post things to your blog timely. Now I have to completely change this post up because the story has completely changed. It doesn’t invalidate anything I had to say before, but now I have to say a lot more.

For context, for future generations who will read this like it’s the Hadith, Sherryl Sherrod is a Dept of Agriculture bureaucrat who gave a speech at the NAACP convention this year. (Future generations–if you don’t know what the Dept of Agriculture and the NAACP are, go look it up on Wikipedia. If you are reading this you sure as hell have Wikipedia, right?)

In her speech, Shirley allowed as to how she might have discriminated a little bit against whitey in her youth and she was somewhat sorry about that because she realized that the difference between rich and poor is even more important than the difference between black and white if you’re going to make a career about pretending to help those who won’t be helped.

(Of course, Shirley is right about the poor thing–all welfare bums have more in common with each other than they do with productive people. And there are almost zero multi-decade poor people in America who aren’t slimeballs, sleazebags, deadbeats and welfare bums. Shirley wuvs these asshowes wike Bwistow wuvs Wevi, and with about as much wationality. Yeah, I’m still pissed at Sarah Palin.)

(So when am I going to get around to defending Sherryl? Wait for it…. you’re going to be waiting a little while, but I will do it.)

Shirley Sherrod is a standard issue black racist worthless (till last week) federal bureaucrat.

She wasn’t just a racist 24 years ago. She’s still a racist now. Her full speech is full of banal racism. Everyone’s bitching about how it was wrong to quote just a little bit of it.  It’s not doing her a favor to quote the whole thing. And what she’s had to say since then hasn’t covered her IQ in glory.

 She’s  always made a really good living playing the oppressed card in the quasi-governmental  community organizing sector where Barack Obama also learned to tap dance for the guilty white liberal man.

Sherrod wasn’t a Fed until 2009. She sued the feds for some kind of racist something, and got mid-6-figures out of it.  I don’t know the details and I don’t care. I just hate people who sue like this. This is why I hated John Edwards from day 1.

Anyhow, she got hired into the Dept of AG bureacracy in 2009, coincidence I’m sure, and other racists in the Obama administration cannot be proved to have anything to do with Sherryl the pilot fish serendipitously attaching herself to the biggest safest whale of all.

 Now, we must stop and talk about what the definition of racism is. A too-large percentage of black people and white liberal people say that unless you’re a member of a privileged class you can’t be a racist.   If you’re a member of an oppressed class, you can hate based on race all you want and that doesn’t count. Go listen to all of Sherrod’s speech and decide whether she thinks this is right or not.

My definition of racism is much simpler: hating people because of their race. By my definition, as a racial group, black people are the most racist people in America. Except perhaps for the Japanese, who keep it under their hats instead of using it for begging rights.

Ok, now, the main event…

 In defense of Shirley Sherrod:

Watch her whole tape or don’t argue with me.

Shirley stood up in front of a (friendly) crowd and honestly, sincerely, said politically incorrect things to try to move them in her direction. Sure, in some of her speech she pandered to the crowd. Like people on the right don’t? Like Sarah Palin isn’t more pander than human?  (Seriously, I’m so sick of Sarah that I’m thinking I must have an unconscious crush on her.)

Sherrod led with rehearsed shtick slamming Republicans to get crowd armor down for what she really wanted to say.

She wanted to admit mistakes, tell personal stories, get people to move more to less racism.

And for that she was crucified.

She spoke very seriously, without malice, about her own racism, about her regrets. There’s no question she was trying to do good and meant NO HARM. I’d have cheered her were I there.

I am sick and fucking tired of everyone who refuses to let those who mean no harm when speaking about race escape without being destroyed.

Al Campanis, Jimmy the Greek, Shirley Sherrod..

If you don’t get what they have in common, you’re a racist race monger.

Hey, Andrew Breitbart, you’re one of my heroes. But this is more than inflicting collateral damage and revenging yourself on the NAACP for calling the Tea Party racists.  Way too much.

Andrew, you’re now a member of the lynch mob going after anyone who speaks honestly and without malice about race. I don’t give a flying fuck whether you only got a clip of the video and couldn’t wait to post it till you had the whole context. That’s what a lynching is–stringing someone up before you have all the facts. You lynched this woman, and I mean that with every bit of racial subtext and context that can be attached to the word “lynching.” I’m really interested to see what you will say about this fuckup. If you go all defensive and nitpicky, you’re dead to me.

The NAACP has had a great week and honest people have to admit that Mark Williams’ unforced error (see my previous post) proves them right about racism in the Tea Party: Mark Williams had 400,000 members of his Tea Party Express.  Williams is a racist piece of shit. I hope almost all of Williams’ followers are as shocked as I am. Until they repudiate him, fuck them. Williams hadn’t outed himself as a vicious racist before Ben Jealous threw down the gauntlet. And then the racism boiling over in his sad little soul just boiled over like a boiling over thing….I’ve been watching too much Red Eye.

The Left was right. There’s significant racism in the Tea Party. True until otherwise proven, you 400K Mark Williams followers. What say you? Seriously, you Tea Party Express people need to do something.

UPDATE: Mark Williams has resigned from the Tea Party Express, gracelessly, dishonestly and exactly like the little bitch he is.

Hey, Eric Fuckwad Holder, you say Americans are cowards when it comes to talking about race, but I haven’t heard you yet defend this gutsy woman. I don’t care if you do it later this week–too little too late, as usual.

Hey, Barack and your SecAg Tom Shitsack. You fired this woman like she was radioactive based on You-Tube. Everyone says you jumped too soon. Well, yeah, governing by You-Tube is pretty pathetic.

But  nobody I’ve seen yet has said this: You jumped too soon because you bought the original story hook line and sinker because you felt, deep in your heart, that it was true. You know goddamn well that black racism is a virulant undergrowth in mainstream black organizations.  “Killing cracker babies” is way more a mainstream sentiment among blacks than you dare admit. You found Sherrod guilty because that’s what you expected to find.

Barack, this story felt true to you. Christ, you over-privileged little racist punk surrounded by all your little racist punk advisors.

Oh, and for everyone denying that the pressure to fire Sherrod wasn’t from the White House…

Barack Obama is a goddamn liar.

Robert Gibbs is a goddam liar’s bitch.

Tom Shitsack, Secretary of Agriculture, is trying to take one for the team.  He’s after 72 virgins in heaven, which in America, is cushy jobs and perhaps an ambassadorship. Christ, we’ve become so third world when it comes to our privileged class. From now on, I’ll call him Secretary Bwana Shitsack.

I hate most everybody this week except Shirley Sherrod. Sure, she’s a racist. Sure, she’s done lots of bad things and made a career from race-mongering. But she’s the only person this week I’ve seen actually speak truth to power.  And then she outed the liars in the White House who tried to keelhaul her.  And she’s trying hard to think about her racism and talk about it and be honest.

You go girl.

UPDATED because I kept calling her Sherryl instead of Shirley Sherrod. My affinity for alliteration is absolutely asinine.


Bristol and Levi sitting in a tree

July 20, 2010

If this doesn’t kill the Right’s love affair with La Palin, nothing will.

Sarah Palin has made a mess of her family. She’s done nothing that indicates strength or values dealing with her stupid slutty daughter Bristol. I’m sure that welcoming Bristol’s bastard brat seemed the right thing to do politically at the time. That’s why Sarah did it. Not out of principle or love or anything except political appearance.

Unfortunately, Sarah didn’t take into account the 18-year-lifespan of the story. Or what a dumb bimbo her daughter would keep being. Or what a feckless fuck the baby daddy was.

Now, bratty Bristol has informed Sarah via People magazine that she’s in WUV with Wevi and they’re going to get married and fuck you mamma.

It’s time to rescue some dignity, Sarah. They have ice floes in Alaska, don’t they? Put both of them on one and then go home and shut up about everything for the rest of your life.

Update 2016: Every nasty thing I’ve ever said about Sarah Palin was prescient.
