And, Quite Naturally, Politics Wins Out



*cracks neck and knuckles...pops collar*

I was gearing up to do a post on Red Tails (and trust me, it shall come), but the Republikkkans are at it again and I felt some announcements were in order.

*clears throat*

South Carolina Sucks

I'll just go ahead put SC on the same shelf as Arizona and Georgia.

And Iowa...we can't forget about Iowa.

Behold the Lemming Factor, in All Its Lemming Glory

Many white Americans are racist - I get that.  Many white Americans fear people of color - I get that too.

Many white Americans are the reason why people like Limbaugh and Beckkk have shows, why people like Coulter sell books out the ass, and why Newt Gingrich is relevant right now.  And that...*shakes head*  I just don't get.

Jon Stewart once posited that maybe the Republican problem isn't their candidates, but the Republicans themselves.  He then used, as example, videos of Republican, predominantly white crowds cheering on dimwitted, racist, yet conveniently moneyed white politicians.  And he's right.  Other than the filthy rich white elite, who else keeps putting these shitheads in power?

They don't give a fuck about the poor.  Why can't the white sheeple just absorb this fact already?  These people give a fuck about their own pockets.  They give a fuck about publicity, and power, and prestige - a whole lot of P-words which don't include the poor.  They bitch about the poor declaring class warfare in light of the Occupied Movements, but they conveniently forget to mention that their own wealth is a direct result of class warfare.

In a country where fifty percent (50%) of working citizens made less than $36,000 last year, race should be the last thing on any sane, rational, intelligent voter's mind.

And yet....

Amerikkka, honey, you are stupid.  Your IQ is in the negative, and you deserve every ounce of ridicule and disregard you get from the rest of the world.  You deserve the shitastic economy you're stuck with, you deserve to fall from status completely, and maybe after a few more decades of this - spearheaded by shiny, grinning white presidents, I hope - maybe the reality of your situation will finally sink in.

White America, You Are Racist.  Stop Whining About It.

And you've been told repeatedly that it would be your own undoing.

Ta-da!!!!

  1. As a Georgian I must agree! My mother and I were out the other day and on this truck we saw a sign that said "Get rid of Obama! Take back the plantation!" I constantly tell my family and friends that if the white Georgians had a choice they'd make us slaves again. Also, I live around the town were Troy Davis is from and not one eyelash was batted when he got executed. They made one of our few Black reporters go interview his family.If you call them out on their racism, you're the mean evil Blackie stirring up trouble.This doesn't fit with the post 100% but I had to get this off of my chest in a forum where I'd be understood.

    1. Another Georgian here. Newt Gingrich is a douchebag, much like the rest of his GA counterparts (in particular, that idiot Westmoreland, Chambliss, and our last governor Perdue). I don't understand why the title of the Hulu video makes it sound like this is anything new when it comes to Republicans. They've been doing it for 30+ years now at least. All their racist BS shows is that the Republican Party has nothing to offer. Their neoliberal policies (not that the Democratic Party isn't neoliberal either) have failed hard and they know that more of the same won't work so they resort to bigotry to get into power. I'm just numb to all the bullshit now.

  2. My family always said that hard heads made for soft asses. It seems these sheeple have heads of diamond because the rich have shown constantly that they only care for other rich people. Hell, they barely care for each other except for the fact that they all worship the Almighty Dollar. Since people learned that having more currency gives you more power, the rich have demonstrated that they give negative 9000 fucks for the poor. And yet poor whites still eat the shit rich whites feed them because they think they're on the same team.

  4. I am sooo beyond angry right now. I am Female, a POC, and AMERICAN. Of all the things on that list the last one is the only thing I have ever really come to see as a disadvantage.Probably because I know the first two are nothing to be ashamed of.I know the crap associated with being a woman and black is more of a product of ignorant people fed misinformation by others who felt their sense superiority and power was challenged somehow. Some people just cant feel worth a damn without trying to make somebody else feel worthless. However, even if I was to relocate to somewhere outside of America on top of being female and a POC I would be from a country that is considered the world over to be full of stupid, disrespectful, deceitful, greedy, classless,leaches. There's a negative American stereotype to go along with everything. I'm an American female. Therefore I must be spoiled,man castrating,money waster, with no sense of family values. I'm a Black American. Therefore I'm a loud, lewd, slutty,ugly,obese, color-struck, lazy,greedy, breeding machine,Jezebel, Mammy,Sapphire,Welfare Queen variation. I don't even want to think about what would be added if I were Gay. The sad part is I can't really fault them for associating negativity with America,because the country seems to have worked damn hard for that reputation.So I doubt even leaving the country (if I had that option) would solve any of my problems. As much as I want to believe that somewhere else has to be better than "this" I know I'd probably only be exchanging one kind of discrimination for another. (I know I know ... do I want any cheese to along with that whine?)

    On a less pathetic note, I don't think anybody is surprised about how ignorant the Republicans are being. We all figured they were gonna use that "Post Racial Society" stupidity in order to be blatantly racist and not be challenged (like the good ole days). What I'm actually surprised about is the amount of people actually calling them out on their shit in the mainstream media and on the net. I am not exempting the Democrats from ridicule. For the most part they may be sane and well meaning, but they are cowards. Both sides have been weighed found wanting. This is my first year eligible to vote in this election. I can't sit it out because I'm afraid that one of those RepubliKKKans might be elected because the frustrated smart folks are sitting it out, and leaving the polls to the sheeple.I'm just upset that instead of making a real decision I have to vote for the lessor of two evil's or live with the consequences.I'm ready for this to be over. Anyone else have a headache?

    1. I think it's an expectation of excess "family values", rather than a lack thereof, that freaks out non-Americans.

      People outside the US are expected to know and understand American culture and politics, which are sometimes given priority over their own, while Americans are not expected to reciprocate. A certain level of arrogance from Americans is therefor assumed, and pre-emptively guarded against. The likliest way to get that guard to drop is to disappoint the assumption. I'm not saying you would be everyone's favourite person outside the US, but I think displaying an honest interest in, and clear respect for, the country you are in would go a fair way towards undercutting the dumb American stereotype. (Not taking it personally that people resent the enormous power of the US government in/over their countries is also a help.) I'm not accusing you particularly of any of those behaviours, just noting the main differences I can think of between the Americans I respect and the ones I have no time for.

    2. Yeah. I understand that respect and cultural sensitivity should be a practice of everyone visiting a different country.I also don't expect everyone to like me that would be extremely naive. I was just having the weirdest day when I wrote that comment. Respect is something that should be expected no matter where you are from and I do not fault any place in the world for whatever negative assumptions they have about Americans because like I said we seemed to have worked for that rep by being arrogant,xenophobic and disrespectful. I was really just lamenting the fact that although America is in a bad place right now ,and as a result I am regretting being in America, getting out of dodge (going away )wouldn't really change much because prejudice whether based in facts or stereotypes exists everywhere.

  6. God! I didn't get to see Newt second ex-wife's interview. I'm going to see how many people isn't going to vote for ol Newtie because of it. We we already know they're going to keep him in anyway. Should teach Herman Pain...oops!..Cain a lesson about where he stands in this racist world.

    1. It really should.

      It's okay for the white guy to be a lecherous, two-timing hump, but it's a unacceptable for Negroes.

      Yup. Happened to have my radio on NPR this morning where they interviewed some Gingrich supporters in SC. This one woman was talking about how he asked for forgiveness so she forgave him. Obama can be accused of having sex with a gay prostitute, Clinton almost gets impeached because of a BJ (to my knowledge he didn't have multiple affairs or kids all over the place), but Gingrich can cheat on his wives and act like a sociopath. The fear of criticizing capitalism in the USA and its racism will be the death of us all if something is not done and fast.

  7. Another issue is the perpetuation of the myth that Black people in America don't want to work, that THAT'S why we have such high unemployment rates.

    What a convenient way to avoid talking about racial discrimination in the workplace. It's a great way to avoid the fact that job placement agencies have no trouble finding your average white person a job, but don't even bother with their more melanin-enhanced, often highly educated applicants.

    Paul Mooney once noted that during the slavery era, a Black person would America had 14 jobs. They did all that work for free. But now that Black people themselves are free, employment is suddenly nowhere to be found.

  8. Thanks for hooking up with two of my posts, and to condemn the state that I live in lol.

    This is (another) problem with white people (especially of the conservative variety) when it comes to elections. They would, in a nanosecond, vote against their best interests just because the candidate has the same skin as they do. For them, whiteness is the most important commodity they have, and they trust it unconditionally without any question even if they end up getting screwed.

    They don't care about what's right and what's needed. They just want a white man as their leader to tell them what to do.
