George Bush Heckled At Thomas Jefferson’s Slave Mansion

Hello everyone. How were your Fourth of July weeks? Well that’s wonderful. The worst Fourth of July experience this year was probably that of Jesse Helms, who hilariously died. But important founding father Thomas Jefferson also died on the Fourth of July (five, ten years ago-ish), and that’s why President Bush spent his holiday at Jefferson’s house, Monticello, among the ghosts of his “mocha” bastard slave children. And then RADICAL LEFT protest group Code Pink harassed him a bunch of times, just like they did every day when Jefferson lived his naked life with Sacagawea. [YouTube]

    Is there some sort of protester dress code that forces you to dress like a douche?

  • Uncle Al

    Best part:

    President Fucktard says, “Lookie us! We believe in free speech in the United States of America”–just as the camera shows the woman being dragged off by goons to Guantanamo….

  • NoWireHangers

    Damn Peaceniks. Why not just cut to the chase and use a gun? It’s what Charlton Heston would want you to do.

  • TGY

    [re=30325]Cicada[/re]: They want to make absolutely certain that security dudes get the right person for the full body cavity search.

    Wait, I read about this in ‘The Cask of Amoticello’ or possibly ‘Riunite’.

  • mephistopheles jefferson

    Forget about the hippie agitators – why does W. actually pronounce ‘Monticello’ in proper Italian (with a ‘ch’ sound) rather than the correct manner? How does he always manage to fuck up?

  • crookedE

    I admire anyone who still has the energy to heckle that guy.

  • Rev. Peter Lemonjello

    No furry costumes? That’s not a protest we can believe in.

  • Delicious

    [re=30335]crookedE[/re]: No shit. Just watching those protesters makes me tired.

  • FreshCliches

    Side note: In quoting Jefferson during his speech, Dubya also conveniently left out a statement by Tom that could be construed as a diss against the Christofascists.

  • Terry

    Did you notice in this and other footage from the event that most of the new citizens were pretty darn fair skinned? How did they manage that? Send the rest to Williamsburg for their ceremony?

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=30335]crookedE[/re]: You cannot stop Code Pink. They are like Jezebel on speed.

  • graceless

    [re=30338]Delicious[/re]: Me too.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=30328]Uncle Al[/re]: What’s the problem? She’s just being dragged off to a free speech zone where she can celebrate freedom to her heart’s content.

  • DemmeFatale

    The Code-Pinkers must have some balls on them. Just listen to all those 29 percenters cheering and clapping!

  • Truculent

    [re=30325]Cicada[/re]: Dressing like a homeless clown proves you’re not pwned by The Man. Or you have bad fashion sense. One or the other.

  • kudzu

    [re=30348]DemmeFatale[/re]: I say the balls on them should be Truck Nutz, chrome, may I suggest?

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=30337]Rev. Peter Lemonjello[/re]: I whole-heartedly agree. What has activism come to if it no longer permits teh furries?

  • heathenish

    nonthin like a little free speech on the 4th of jooly, is there! just as long as your not dumb enough to try it!

  • heathenish

    nothin (sorry i’m upset by all this freedom)

  • Guppy06

    [re=30335]crookedE[/re]: Has anybody yet organized a heckle-fest where everybody just throws their empty beercans at the president without bothering to stand up?

  • hockeymom

    “Twat Heckles Twit”

  • jasonelias

    You know it’s bad when Uncle Sam heckles you.

  • RuperttheBear

    [re=30411]jasonelias[/re]: I think he was just advertising for a tax preparation service.

  • badco/LoJ

    Thanks a lot, dumbfucks. They’re applauding him now.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …ironic how they “support free speech” as they hustle her off to jail.

  • JerseyTrash

    I like how the good Christian 28-percenters screech back “Shut the fuck up!1!11!1″ whenever one criticizes Dear Leader.

  • Advocatus_Diaboli

    Do the last remaining supporters of Bush (all 17 of them) just follow him around the country to all his stupid photo-ops?

  • BeatrixSlaughter

    [re=30334]mephistopheles jefferson[/re]: Actually, that is the correct pronunciation.

    I was just there last week when the secret service were checking it out in preparation for his visit. It was pretty funny to watch the Monticello staff try to stop them from breaking everything they touched.

  • Lazy Media

    Montichello is how the name of Jefferson’s mansion is pronounced, because Jefferson was an urbane cosmopolitan who knew about stuff like Italy. Montisello is how the town in Georgia is pronounced, because, well, it’s in Georgia.

  • bitchincamaro

    I call bullshit! Not a Taser in sight!

  • Borat

    ummm…did ya all forget what jefferson actually grew on his plantation? there’s like a wine cellar there full o hash and vintage coca leaves. vintage baby, it only gets stronger with age!!!

  • villageatrois

    Y’all call that a proper hecklin’? Sheeit, not even small arms fire. Now, way back when Hillary when to Bosnia, that was some fine hecklin’
