Ha ha, because he's black!
The Republican “base” can’t decide if Barack Obama is a fancy educated Harvard elitist or a scary foreign Hawaiian Muslin from the Jungle or just a common fried-chicken & watermelon colored, on welfare. If only they could somehow find out “the truth” about this terrorist who will soon be their American president. Meanwhile, a racist Republican gal in the “Inland Empire” — the poor white trash part of exurbian Los Angeles — sent out her little newsletter to the local GOP ladies, and she illustrated it with this hilarious thing, which shows how Barack Obama will be featured on the new food stamps for black people, redeemable for Kentucky Fried Chicken, watermelon, ribs and, uh, Kool Aid. So funny!

The Riverside Press Enterprise reports:

She said she doesn’t think in racist terms, pointing out she once supported Republican Alan Keyes, an African-American who previously ran for president.

“I didn’t see it the way that it’s being taken. I never connected,” she said. “It was just food to me. It didn’t mean anything else.”

She said she also wasn’t trying to make a statement linking Obama and food stamps, although her introductory text to the illustration connects the two: “Obama talks about all those presidents that got their names on bills. If elected, what bill would he be on????? Food Stamps, what else!”

What a country!

  1. I wondered if the Republican ticket was sending out Klan robes to everyone who requested a yard sign. How remarkably pitiful is this atrocity – pathetic!

  2. “Watermelon, Kool-Aid, fried chicken, and ribs. I had absolutely no idea that all of these foods were linked with black stereotypes! It is just food to me!”

    Ah the Inland Empire, making Orange County look like the place for intellectual, restrained conservatism since 1980.

  3. Give her a break, it’s just a coincidence that she picked fried chicken, watermelon, and ribs to put on her adorable Obama Bucks. Mere happenstance.

  4. Wow.

    I think that we’re going to see more and more of this from Republicans over the years. As more and more of the intelligentsia abandons the party, all that will be left will be the angry and pathetic white crowd that we see milling around after Palin rallies.

    Pretty soon, graphics like that will be found in the National Review.

  5. America’s racists these days are cowards. They never own up to their own racisty shenanigans.

    Back in the olden days people would print racist coupons and be like, “YEAH I DID IT. F U, LIEberul!” But now they’re like, “Waaahhh, I didn’t know nig — I mean black Americans liked KFC…”

    At least own your racism and be proud, trashy lady. Own that shit!

  6. Really, I can’t even comment on this shit anymore. They’re becoming parodies of themselves to the extent that I can’t even think of anything else to say about this.

    *stutters for a while, then stabs self in the face with this here coffee mug*

  7. The water flows over the decks and into the lower compartments running towards the boiler rooms. Fried chicken and watermellon in the lifeboats. Check your racist baby jeebus relates at the rail. Report to garbage disposal.

  8. Trademark owners should sue for defamation. Trademark owners could take her house and car. Of course, who the hell wants more inland empire real estate.

  9. [re=137491]Simony[/re]: I hope you mean George Wallace. Henry Wallace was the nice Democratic Vice President who was in the tank for socialism, Alger Hiss, and Paul Robeson.

  10. There’s a reason people attach “-tucky” to the end of every city in the Inland Empire.

    San Bernadinotucky
    Rancho Cucamongatucky

    etc. …

  11. “What, does fried chicken and watermelon have a negative cooonotation with the coloreds? That is NEWS to me, hunny! There ain’t no bananas in there, so what’s the problem??”

    I can’t wait to these little shits have to suffer the “indignity” of Barack being president. This is all I want and I want it right now!

  12. [re=137461]grendel[/re]: Yeah, just like today, while shopping for a party, I picked up Kools and Colt 45. What a coinkydink! The new rims look fly on my Focus, tho’

  13. Wow, seriously… what the fuck’s up with these Republicans? Are they really so stupid they couldn’t predict this reaction from 100 miles away?

  14. “The newsletter is not the first such episode Barajas has had to respond to this week. The Sacramento Bee on Wednesday posted an image it said was captured from the Sacramento County GOP Web site that showed Obama in a turban next to Osama bin Laden.

    “It said: “The difference between Osama and Obama is just a little B.S.” The site also encouraged members to “Waterboard Barack Obama,” a reference to a torture technique. The Sacramento County party took down the material Tuesday after being criticized.”

  15. This is the funniest thing ever. I LOVE watching America’s love of money being pitted against their hatred of black people. AND when Barack’s elected, that will probably mean no more Boomer presidents…EVER! What am I going to watch when this is all over?!?!

  16. [re=137531]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: Mmm! Popeyes! There isn’t a white southerner alive that doesn’t eat Popeye’s like it’s going out of style.

  17. This is actually one of the reasons I wanted Obama over Clinton; because the wingers can’t help themselves and the middle is sprinting the fuck away from these people. A cankles epithet just doesn’t have the same stark relief.

  18. [re=137468]bup[/re]: Yeah, and let’s not forget the Grape Nehi and Orange Soda for special occasions. I’m sorry – she’s full of sh*t.

  19. Hey racist, I have an issue with this horrible peice of work you’ve made. The photoshop work bites my ass. I mean come on. Nice shitty Outer Glow on that gross black Britannica-lookin’ font. It really brings out the clipart. GB2MSPAINT

  20. [re=137522]NewSpence[/re]: No, I meant Henry and only in a droll, Mencken-esque mood.

    I’m sincerely proud of this nomination and of his campaign.

  21. It’s the cute little donkey thing that does it for me. I mean, BO looks like Pinocchio on the Island of Lost Boys. So fucking adorable! It makes me love him MORE. And it’s on topic because it says Democrat.

    You guys must have tossed out your sense of Ironic Hipster Humor somewhere on the road to Vitory.

  22. “The difference between Osama and Obama is just a little B.S.”

    Okay, I have to begrudging say that was good, they get a 1/10 of a point and a glossy of the Jonas Brothers.

  23. [re=137581]SeminoleInDior[/re]: EXACTLY! These are not black foods, they’re southern foods. Southerners love barbcued ribs, fried chicken, watermelons (climate’s just right for growin’ em), and we love a sugary, inexpensive soft drink. Barack is from Chicago…not in the South, hence these foods not about him, therefore not racist!

  24. [re=137607]magic titty[/re]: Actually they are funny if the jokester is a simpleton with a childish view of the world and shitty graphic skills. You see, it works on so many many levels.

    Of course, as McCain said last night YOU probably don’t know what Freddie Mae and Fannie Mac are.

  25. This isn’t racist at all. You know what’s racist? John Lewis saying mean things about John McCain. Why, if Obama had agreed to all of those town hall meetings, none of this stuff would happen.

  26. [re=137629]Hooray For Anything[/re]: Yes. Town meetings are the bedrock of American democracy. Ask anyone who’s bought an election in a tiny New England town.

  27. Strappo – If David Alan Grier did it, it would be his editorial statement as a black person, which, because he has that status in society, he’s entitled to make.

    If a non-black person does it, I cannot be seen in any other way than intending to promote racial division, which harms my nation. As a result, I am very angry.

    McCain may lose a couple of states over this. I know this, because I know all real Americans retch and recoil in tears at this insult.

  28. [re=137554]Serolf Divad[/re]: Yes they are. Because they obviously thought that if the Democrats ran a black candidate, overt racism would benefit them. It hasn’t, and they are about to pay a very big price for that miscalculation.

  29. I can’t wait for this woman to be inundated with hate mail and death threats. That way, the McCain campaign can blame it on Obama’s refusal to do more town meetings, then demand an apology.

  30. [re=137467]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: I just gotta say that your “China” comment on this thread was the coolest, snarkiest, absolutely-fucking-laugh-out-loudest thing I have ever read on Wonkette. I nearly pissed myself. After wading through this vile, racist poop all morning I needed it.

  31. 1. Look at an electoral map
    2. Drive to the nearest state that’s red
    3. Punch someone in the face

    If you live in a state that’s red and you haven’t already done so, punch yourself in the face.

  32. The foodstamp reciients of InlandEmpiretucky are around 89% white. That, and the omission of Sour Apple Jolly Ranchers indicates this clip artist is living in the 70s…or possibly in her 70s

  33. [re=137626]Strappo[/re]: Very true. You can laugh at the retards, but it’s still not funny, what they do.

    I know. I thought Fannie Mae was the lady on the stoop on 227.

  34. She said she simply wanted to deride a comment Obama made over the summer about how as an African-American he “doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”

    “It was strictly an attempt to point out the outrageousness of his statement. I really don’t want to go into it any further,” Fedele said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “I absolutely apologize to anyone who was offended. That clearly wasn’t my attempt.”

    I think her punishment should be to go down to South Central, distribute the newsletter, and apologize to anyone who might take offence to it.

  35. Ur kidding right? She didn’t mean to offend anyone? Well, I do.
    Hey Diane-Fuck you. And if i run into your trashy ass, i’ll bitch-slap you so hard you’ll SEE watermelons…
    Then again, i wouldn’t be caught dead in LA…unless it was to kill Diane.

  36. [re=137674]Cape Clod[/re]: “It was strictly an attempt to point out the outrageousness of his statement.” Yah. It’s all his fault. Forcing me to make his point for him. Anyways, he started it, that Mister Kool-Aid swilling, elitist, half-blood. Can I have my ball back now? I want to go home.

  37. “I didn’t see it the way that it’s being taken. I never connected,” she said. “It was just a burning cross and a dead man with dark skin hanging from a tree. It didn’t mean anything else.”

  38. So, Diane, can I make a picture of a dollar bill with a wet dog? I mean, I wouldn’t mean anything racist by it, it’s just a symbolic of a certain scent.

  39. [re=137648]AnnieGetYourFun[/re]: Hmm, since you pointed that out, I’ll take away the Jonas Brothers pic, besides, I think they’re all 18 and over by now.

  40. As a former resident of the O.C. (I got out as soon as I could, thank you), I’d like
    to state for the record that the “Inland Empire” is often fondly referred to as “The Dirt People”.
    And you can see why.

  41. well first of all there are NO food “stamps” (it’s all on an ATM-like card and second you can’t buy KFC with food stamps!! duh! (elitist rich bastards don’t know anything about anything!!) and third if she didn’t mean to offend anyone we are to assume she meant this as a compliment to obama and she is really going to vote for him? right

  42. [re=137776]cricket feldstein[/re]:

    The people from the Inland Empire are also derisively referred to as 909-ers (the area code). They make traffic suck, hard, on the 91 freeway and make Newport Beach and Irvine unbearable on the weekends. The 909 is redneck for southern California.

  43. I couldn’t be more white, but I like fried chicken, ribs, and watermelon.
    And I’ll be on welfare and shopping with food stamps if things don’t turn around pretty soon!
    Yer durn tootin’ I voted for Hopey! And I’ll do it again if I get the chance.
    Jeese Louise.

  44. “She said she doesn’t think in racist terms, pointing out she once supported Republican Alan Keyes, an African-American who previously ran for president.”

    Well why didn’t she say this sooner? I totally understand now. The slave master who owned my great-great-great granmother wasn’t a racist either. I know this because he fucked her and why would a racist do that with a negro?

  45. racist? it’s just a cute nod to his religion depicting the traditional meal served at the feast of eid. red-flavored kool aid and watermelon have always been essential and sacred to the festal shenanigans, as have zakat foodstamps.

  46. [re=137524]Worlds End[/re]: That’s right, Obama’s a Socialest! Jeez I love it.[re=137531]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: How ’bout Chick-Fil-A?
    [re=137626]Strappo[/re]: Wasn’t it a feth of breash air when Juanito said that?

  47. Seriously, people, can we refrain from painting an entire region with a broad brush? I recently moved from DC back to the Inland Empire where I grew up. And this douche-y woman who thinks her sad little piece of clipart pasting is clever is just a fucking moron. But DO NOT think that everyone in the area is like her. She does NOT represent my I.E. When you make such broad generalizations (*cough* sterotype *cough*), you lose friends and influencing people in all the wrong ways.

    Representin’ the I.E.

  48. She is fully aware that this is a racist stereotype, she probably thought that her stupid stunt would stay within the local GOP lady group(who surely found this was haylarious), but as soon as it went national her semi-closet racist a– started back-pedaling.

    I bet she has black friends who she says are great and equal *as long as they don’t breed with/mix the white kin*

  49. I am NOT OFFENDED. We are in the Brand New Great Depression. Everything is as high as giraffe pussy. If I could get a large bucket of spicy kfc chicken breast (slathered in hot sauce), a slab of bar-b-que ribs, a gallon of red kool-aid (spiked w/ SKOL vodka), and sliced fresh watermelon in exchange for some coveted tender baring Obama in naughty furry lingerie, I’m ALL FOR IT. Matter of fact, I was going to vote for Nader and now that I know that Obama bucks perfectly coincide with my medical marijuana prescription and recent/permanent employment-free disposition…sign me up!!! Obama/Biden 08!!! HOLLA!

  50. Alan Keyes? That guy hasn’t been black for 20 years. I used to get really riled up about this stuff, now I just feel sorry for these blatantly racist a-holes.

  51. “I didn’t see it the way that it’s being taken. I never connected,” she said. “It was just food to me. It didn’t mean anything else.”

    My eyes just rolled so far back up in my head that I can see my own shoulder blades.

  52. Day by day by day, the frightened, paranoid Republicans are just digging their holes deeper and deeper. Pretty soon, all the Republicans, and their confused friend and Democratic traitor Joe Lieberman, will be living in those holes, and the rest of the world won’t have to worry about them anymore. What a bunch of morons.
