Wingnut School Board President Sends Usual Wacky Racist Emails To Everybody

by Ken Layne

Organic Garden.It’s a week of the year in America, so that means it’s time for another wingnut local official to get busted for sending the hilarious racist emails to everybody. Meet Robert J. Weller, president of the Lewiston-Porter School Board somewhere in the sticks about 40 miles northeast of Albany somewhere north of Buffalo but it does not appear on any maps as it is not on Earth. Weller, who ran for the board in 2007 and came in fifth place and somehow got appointed to the the board anyway, because who even cares, apparently spends all his free time at home forwarding the funnies about the coloreds to “friends and fellow board members.” And, as usual, some worry wart P.C. libtards don’t get the joke.

Weller admits sending the emails, refuses to apologize for them, and bizarrely excuses his racist idiot behavior by saying, “They can accuse all they want to, but I didn’t do anything other than what everybody else in the world does. The president of the school board is no more holy than a minister, and a minister probably sends a lot more stuff than I do. These are just jokes. If somebody wanted to take offense, they had the opportunity to shut if off, just like a radio.”

Uhh.

Anyway, we now turn to the Buffalo News for some examples of Weller’s email-forwarding hi-jinx:

• A photo of Barack Obama, depicted making a campaign promise to deliver jobs to “everyone who can work.” In the background of the doctored image is a group of African-Americans running away.

•A mock news release from the Detroit Police Department that claims the department will replace German shepherd police dogs with “coon dogs, due to the fact the city is not having any problems with Germans.”

• A doctored photo of Chelsea Clinton holding up a T-shirt that reads, “My mom is getting her ass kicked by a Negro.”

The last time this jackass made the news, he was (of course) demanding the Ten Commandments be installed at the district’s schools — because he firmly believes the Ten Commandments are the original forwarded emails of racist jokes.

You turn me off I’m a radio? That racist-ass cracka is a Joni Mitchell fan too?

zenferret June 8, 2009 at 3:11 pm

Obiovusly the minister is a racist because he’s the one that thought about blacks that way. Weller, well since he don’t see color he couldn’t have meant any offense that way.

Crab1 June 8, 2009 at 3:15 pm

Everybody does do this. I just cc’d my entire company a fw email from my grandmother’s pastor back in Ponca City about how Obama ran for president so he could rape a few more white women compared to the normal, everyday black. It’s not racist if it is fact.

Gorillionaire June 8, 2009 at 3:16 pm

Does Mr. Waller have a daughter? Cuz a photoshop of her holding up a t-shirt with something about herself and “a negro” would obviously be such a hoot, right Weller guy? It’s all just a joke, yeah? Email it all over the county? yeah? Heck, maybe it’s even TRUE! Hey, just kidding! Gosh dude, I’m SO SORRY you don’t have a sense of humor!

JMP June 8, 2009 at 3:17 pm

“If somebody wanted to take offense, they had the opportunity to shut if off, just like a radio”

That’s not exactly how E-Mail works; I think you mean that they can ignore it. Of course, you are president of the school board; and well, my boss for one would just love it if I ignored his messages.

rereridiculous June 8, 2009 at 3:18 pm

And He said unto our ancestors, “Thou shall always forwardeth the electronic mails of mocking all races and creeds of man to roam the blessed earth, except of your fellow cracker.”

[re=334155]zenferret[/re]: Which means his jokes were complete dogshit by any standard.

Woodwards Friend June 8, 2009 at 3:18 pm

I beg to differ with Mr. Weller. There are roving gangs of Germans menacing Detroit’s far west side. Been that way for years.

Seriously though, we have this little game in Detroit called “X = Asshole.” For instance let’s say “Owning a Jet Ski” equals “X” and “X” always equals “Asshole” therefore “Owning A Jet Ski = Asshole.”

Robert J. Weller = Asshole.

Quick, someone sign this guy up for a twitter account.

Typing that gave me a thought, can you post a rss feed of someone else’s twitter account on your own site. I can totally see Wonkette randomly hosting VIPs twitter-rss-thingys in the left sidebar there, on the left. Ooooh, I wonder what Meg is doing RIGHT NOW.

The Chelsea joke was kinda funny. Hillary did go after some of these votes, for about a month.

BillyClubb June 8, 2009 at 3:27 pm

A doctored photo of Chelsea Clinton holding up a T-shirt that reads, “My mom is getting her ass kicked by a Negro.”

Is it so wrong to laugh at this one?

Accordion-o-rama June 8, 2009 at 3:28 pm

Asked to comment further, Weller said he “didn’t think the cartoon would offend negroes because they can’t read anyway”.

Seriously, what does is say about the rest of the school board that this guy is the president?

WadISay June 8, 2009 at 3:29 pm

Nice of the Buffalo paper to print all the funnies, so we can all be shocked at this douche. This reminds of a few years ago when a London paper printed the following, as an example of the kind of anti-Irish “humor” that was simply beyond the pale, and could not be tolerated in a civil, pluralistic society:

This rummy old Irishman walks into work one day, holding in his cupped hands a moist, steaming, reeking pile of dog shit, and exclaiming, “Will you look at what I almost stepped in!”

President Beeblebrox June 8, 2009 at 3:31 pm

This school district is more like 30 miles north of Buffalo, right across the Niagara River from Canada City, not 40 miles northeast of Albany. Either way, it’s more proof that Noo York is full of wingnuts even though it’s deep blue. Trust me – I grew up near one of those areas. At least the Seneca Nation reservation has cheap cigarettes and fireworks…

One problem, though – dude forgot the photoshopped watermelon/White House image. Also.

memzilla June 8, 2009 at 3:33 pm

Here in NYC, we refer to that part of upstate New York as “North Alabama.”

The biggest industry of that part of NY State is prisons.

The inmates cannot vote; but the prison population is counted as part of the district’s census tally, for purposes of representation in the State Legislature and Congress.

Guess what the predominant melatonin index of the upstate prison population is?

Another (un?)-intended effect of the draconian Rockefeller Drug Laws.

And yes, Weller = A**hat.

The one about women having smaller feet so they can stand closer to the kitchen sink was actually taught in the school district’s science classes. It’s called EVOLUTION.

“a minister probably sends a lot more stuff than I do.”

I hate to burst his bubble, but the average minister is not a member of Stormfront.

Capricatony June 8, 2009 at 3:47 pm

So if I turn off my email does that mean no more bottomless pit of exhortations to enhance my baby maker/love pump?

Anyway aren’t we ignoring the real injustice here? The fact that racism isn’t funny is a sign of the oppression of the white christian male that is rampant in this country.

Hopey dont play that game June 8, 2009 at 3:49 pm

Thank God Sarah Palin has the balls to tell it like it is: Screw Political Correctness!

If just one racist old man is denied his right to forward racist email, the terrorists have won. And by won, I mean one. Because I don’t know the difference between those words.

BobLoblawLawBlog June 8, 2009 at 3:58 pm

The president of the school board is no more holy than a minister, and a minister probably sends a lot more stuff than I do.

Wait, is this a sentence? Is it a defense? An explanation? Am I just too drunk to figure out why he’s saying that a minister is both holier and more proficient than he is…as a defense to racism?

lizard scum: Being Mormon is a choice, and so is choosing to be a conservative racist douche. Being a race isn’t a choice. A great example of this is; Clarence Thomas’ choice to be a white conservative douche. No matter how much of an “Uncle Tom” he acts like, he’s still a black conservative douche.

iantenna June 8, 2009 at 4:04 pm

serious(ish) question: who’s worse, this type of dude who is essentially a lost cause, or the marin-ite type liberal that knows/understands other cultures about as well but will shout from the mountaintops that they love the blacks and the browns and the whatnots? to wit, a true story from my wife’s work. they have a xmas tree every year, and this marin lady, who happens to be jewish, is offended and demands a menorah (fair enough) and suggests they also ask their african-american co-worker, who happens to be a hardcore baptist, if she would like a kwanzaa bush. yep, just like michael scott.

slithytoves June 8, 2009 at 4:04 pm

[re=334224]rj77[/re]: I live someplace northeast of Albany, and it’s not Lew-Porter cause that’s north of Buffalo. Yes, we do have a prison, which I passed by Saturday to drive to a gorgeous lake camp where I drank bourbon and lost at poker. BTW – our county went solidly for Obama; despite the many Repubs, we have more sense than you think. And we aren’t Kansas.

That last one was also on Reinhold Aman’s site, the guy who write the scholarly books about dirty words. He did time in a federal prison for threatening his ex-wife’s lawyer, and hates the Clintons, so I saw it as an anti-Clinton thing. But heck, maybe it’s racist, too; Dr. Aman would gleefully say guilty as charged.

searanch June 8, 2009 at 5:32 pm

“The Lewiston-Porter schools employ 193 full-time teachers, one of whom is black and another who is Hispanic, according to figures provided by the district.”

“Of the district’s approximately 2,300 students, a little more than 100, or about 4.5 percent, are nonwhite.”

This guy’s probably wondering who forwarded his emails to the outside agitators who brought it to the attention of the press….

Homme June 8, 2009 at 6:06 pm

Haha… Ken, you missed some of the best stuff. From the article:

“Adamant that he’s done nothing wrong, Weller had a message for his critics: ‘Tell ’em he who’s without sin [should] cast the first stone.’”

You see, the bible excuses his racism because you stole a pack of gum from a store once. Probably masturbated too.

“Weller, 72, finished last in a five-way race for the board in the spring of 2007 but was appointed to a board vacancy several months later.”

Ha! He’s a loser! A LOSER! He got a gimme because they didn’t have anybody else. [i]Welp, we don’t have anybody else. I guess we’ll have to get the old racist white guy.[/i]

EdFlinstone June 8, 2009 at 6:16 pm

The black teacher was surprised by Mr. Wellers funny welcome of the school board in white hoods and a ol’ fashioned cross burning. Mr Weller commented to the Buffalo News “cmon who hasnt burned a cross on a black person’s yard.” First Epstein was lynched(per Bay Buchanan) now Weller. Who’s next? David Duke? Is this school district the only one in America without an email policy?

WABishop June 8, 2009 at 6:28 pm

How pleased the teachers of the district must be, to have the official endorsement of the “everybody’s doing it, therefore it’s okay” defense at the highest level.

[re=334432]EdFlinstone[/re]: “Is this school district the only one in America without an email policy?” The school board probably MADE an E-mail policy (for everybody else). And when it was discussed I’d bet my bottom dollar they fantasized what seditious things the teachers, especially the one African-American and the one Hispanic-American, might be using the school computers for. Like mebbe union news! Not to mention those nasty children and their sex messages!
