I don’t even have to read these to know what they’re saying. Here’s a guess: “Them brown people ain’t got NO bizness sangin’ Gawd Bless Murica! Durty un-Mercian immgrint scumbags! Dey took err jerbs!!” I’m sure the language is much worse, but am I in the ballpark?
That’s right, America! According to the people who run a bumper sticker company, you can safely call anyone a nigger because it’s just not a bad word anymore. After all, their bumper sticker “2012: Don’t Re-Nig!” is a fast seller, so it must be OK, right?
Paula Smith of Hinesville, Georgia has a company called Stickatude.com. And they’re selling their own version of an anti-Obama bumper sticker that reads “Don’t Re-Nig 2012.” Ms. Smith told me in a telephone conversation on Saturday afternoon that the bumper sticker has been in their inventory since June 2010, but just in the last few days it’s started selling. The price is $3. Ms. Smith insisted that the bumper sticker is not racist. I asked her about the “N” word, for which “nig” is the shortened version. “According to the dictionary [the N word] does not mean black. It means a low down, lazy, sorry, low down person. That’s what the N word means.”
This, my friends, is what happens when people who are still waiting to evolve thumbs get involved in politics. The other stickers on her site aren’t quite as racist, but they’re really, really dumb all the same. One actually says, “As long as there are test, there will be prayer in public schools.” What the fuck does that mean? And shouldn’t “test” be plural? Stupid people make my head hurt.
Oh, this is going to be a nasty election — the racists and bigots who have been sleeping somewhat quietly under their pile of cow shit are slowly awakening and coming out to barf their insane Dark Ages ideas all over us once again. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride. Don’t believe me? Here’s a parting bit of elegantly-worded wisdom from the Nig Woman that might convince you:
I just want someone that’s going to help the United States and not give it other countries all the time. And stop giving the immigrants the benefits that most Americans inside their own states can’t even get because they’re giving it others who don’t even live here as an American.
Yeah, whatever. Do let us know if those thumbs eventually come in, will you?
These people are still waiting for their prehensile tails to drop off before they come down from the trees. Click the story link to see the full photo, which shows the lovely FOX NEWS banner proudly stamped on his t-shirt booth!
This is how serious the birth control situation is in Kentucky, because broken condoms result in tragedies like this man, selling apparel to people who want to honor America’s founding dressed like hobo Klansmen. Were there even other tragic people interested in buying from him, or was his booth FOR SOME UNIMAGINABLE REASON labeled “Tea Party Fox News” on the front? SEE THE ANSWER after the jump:
Yes, the brown “INFIDEL” t-shirts read, “Everything I Need to Know About Islam I Learned on 9/11,” which is why they are calling themselves “infidels,” for irony.
Our politicians say the terrorists haven’t won, but watching how many of my fellow Americans are acting, sometimes I wonder. This poster really gets to the heart of the matter, doesn’t it? It recently appeared on Salon in a tiny thumbnail, so the artist cooked up a larger version to share on Facebook. It’s brilliant! (You can download a hi-res version as well.)
Leave it to the crazy-as-fuck Westboro Baptists to actually be jealous that someone else is threatening to burn the Koran. “We did it first and nobody cared!” That’s right, nobody cares. No go crawl back under the cow patty you crawled out from.
Westboro Baptists: they may be pathetic excuses for human beings, but they certainly don’t disappoint for sheer entertainment value!
One of those angry at a Florida preacher’s plans to mark Sept. 11 by setting fire to copies of the Quran is Shirley Phelps Roper, a leader of the Westboro Baptist Church.
…Her irritation Wednesday was not that the Rev. Terry Jones and his Dove World Outreach Center’s planned bonfire would offend Muslims worldwide and probably increase the danger to American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.
It’s that in 2008 she and her father’s Topeka flock set fire to a Quran in plain view on a Washington, D.C., street and nobody seemed to care.
“We did it a long time before this guy,” Phelps-Roper said by telephone from a street corner in downtown Chicago, scene of the latest Westboro picket — against Jews this time, not gays.
Dick Cavett of all people (where’s he been lately?) has written an op-ed on the NY Times about the whole WTC non-mosque outrage currently sweeping New York City. He pretty much sums up what the rest of us are feeling: being completely floored by these people who try to rationalize their racist, contradictory opinions, these bigots who claim to be fighting for freedom of speech and religion while fighting to deny others those exact same rights. Out of one side of their mouth comes “I love Muslims and they’re welcome to worship as they please!”, while out the other side comes “Muslmins are terrorists and I don’t want this terror-cell mosque near this sacred site!”
A woman tells the news guy on the street, “I have absolutely no prejudice against the Muslim people. My cousin is married to one. I just don’t see why they have to be here.” A man complains that his opposition to the mosque is “painting me like I hate the whole Arab world.” (Perhaps he dislikes them all as individuals?)
I remain amazed and really, sincerely, want to understand this. What can it be that is faulty in so many people’s thought processes, their ethics, their education, their experience of life, their understanding of their country, their what-have-you that blinds them to the fact that you can’t simultaneously maintain that you have nothing against members of any religion but are willing to penalize members of this one? Can you help me with this?
Do these people ever stop and listen to themselves? Apparently not. The Bill of Rights applies to all Americans, not just the white Christian ones. Get over it!
Well, it’s official: to the average racist-minded citizen, black = Muslim. Thus, following that logic, black = America-hatin’, evildoer Muslim terrorist who wants to bomb your city, rape your wives, and eat your babies. In that order.
It was just a matter of time, though, wasn’t it? Those who think all Muslims are terrorists are really just afraid of non-whites in general. When your worldview begins with skin color, you’re only headed for trouble.
So what happens when a “union carpenter who works at Ground Zero” stops by the idiot demonstration to ask why these yokels are coming to New York and making a stink about something that has literally nothing to do with their lives of driving gas-guzzlers around some half-abandoned exurb somewhere while listening to AM radio and hissing through their dentures at the Taco Bell for letting all those Messicans into Real America? Watch the awful video and find out for yourself!
I remember hearing Dr. Laura on the radio in the mid-90′s, which was when she was second in popularity only to Rush Limbaugh. She was known for her “tough love” approach to callers’ problems, which basically means she was an asshole to them. She put them down, she made them feel like bad people, she called them stupid and immoral. Oh yeah, and sometime around 2000 she called homosexuals a “biological error.” I haven’t heard about her since then, and honestly I’m surprised she’s still on the air.
Well, was still on the air. You see, after yelping the word “nigger” 11 times during a recent call, she can’t imagine why people are boycotting her sponsors. She’s just flabbergasted that people are “restricting her free speech” this way. Her logic: “Well, black people say it all the time to each other, so what’s the big deal?” So she’s decided to “retire” from her radio show and just stick to writing ignorant books instead.
So good riddance, “doctor” Laura. You won’t be missed in the slightest, you wretched old cow.
No stranger to controversy, Dr. Schlessinger has been under intense pressure in recent days following an exchange with a caller on her radio show last week in which she used the racial epithet — the so-called N-word — 11 times. The caller, a black woman, was complaining that she was married to a white man whose friends and family members frequently made racist comments in her presence. Dr. Schlessinger responded by arguing there was a “confusing” double standard — that blacks could use the epithet freely while whites could not.
“If anybody without enough melanin says it, it’s a horrible thing; but when black people say it, it’s affectionate,” she said. “It’s very confusing.”
Even after the caller complained — “I was a little caught back by the N-word that you spewed out, I have to be honest with you” — Dr. Schlessinger repeated it a number of times, insisting her caller had “too much sensitivity.”
You know, I’m just about at the point of denying I was born and raised in Arizona. I don’t think I can comfortably call it my home state anymore. The people are just getting too fucking crazy about everything. Guns and brown people are the most popular targets for them lately.
Case in point: some GOP jerkwad running for the AZ Corporation Commission is pushing for something that could actually result in deaths during the hot summers:
Many illegal immigrants could have a hard time getting power, water, natural-gas or phone service at their homes in Arizona if a political candidate gets his way. Barry Wong, a Republican candidate for the Arizona Corporation Commission, told The Arizona Republic on Tuesday that, if elected, he would require regulated utilities to check the immigration status of customers, a move he says would keep costs down for other customers.
…Serving a growing number of people with power, he said, raises utility rates because it requires building new power plants. He said asking utilities not to serve illegal immigrants could protect other ratepayers from utility hikes.
Well if it means saving money for everyone else, by all means! Cut those wetbacks off — they don’t need water or electricity anyway, the filthy brown bastards. This is the kind of thinking that apparently gets people political attention in Arizona nowadays. What’s next, demanding proof of citizenship before people can buy groceries? Why not, at this point?
I also noticed this guy’s last name is Wong. That indicates Asian heritage — is he so sure he can prove his citizenship? Shouldn’t he be under constant surveillance as a potential spy and subversive??
The Texas GOP actually wants to make it a felony to issue a marriage license to same-sex couples. Normally I’m completely unimpressed by anything or anyone even remotely related to Texas, but this shows they’ve got balls. Crazy, dangerous, and self-destructive balls, but balls nonetheless. Here are some other juicy turdbits from their latest hate manifesto, as posted on huffingtonpost.com:
We believe that the practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society, contributes to the breakdown of the family unit, and leads to the spread of dangerous, communicable diseases.
How about gay sex in public restrooms or cheating on your wife with a rent-a-boy? You Republican troglodytes sure seem to have a corner on that lately. Just keep tap-tap-tappin’ those feet, baby!
Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God, recognized by our country’s founders, and shared by the majority of Texans.
How about getting married, having 3-4 kids, then fucking around and smoking crystal meth with male prostitutes in hotel rooms? Sounds like wholesome, Christian family-oriented behavior to me.
Homosexuality must not be presented as an acceptable “alternative” lifestyle in our public education and policy, nor should “family” be redefined to include homosexual “couples.”
Here, let me suggest a slight re-wording: The GOP must not be presented as having any ground in reality whatsoever, having been led by neocon religious zealots into a state of unbridled hatred for non-Christians, non-whites, and homosexuals. There…I did that one for free, but the next one will cost ya.
Such ignorant, loathsome people. You’d think they’d be more worried about the oil their politicians helped bring to their shores than what two people do in their own bedroom.
