Black Man Puts His Feet On Desk, Wingnuts Furious

And stop looking at the white women!
Can you believe this guy? Our queen gave us this holy desk back when his people were still slaves or whatever, and now he’s putting his feet on it?

Oh, the wingnuts. How crazy they make themselves, every day, all because it’s no longer acceptable — even on Fox News or talk radio — to say the “N word.”

This is the rest of the forwarded email making the anger-bear trailer-park rounds today:

Damn straight!

But don’t worry, it’s still okay if the white guy does it.

At least he's not taking a dump on the desk, in this picture.
Thanks to Wonkette operative “Rich F.” for sending both the wingnut correspondence and the Dubya picture.

    Well shit. Reposted from previous thread:
    Let these blacks sit at the front of the bus and all hell breaks loose.

    Happy Black History month.

    Well, Dubya lost the popular vote, too, just like Rutherford B. Hayes, so the least we could do was allow them this one indiscretion. Obama, being a man of the people, cannot place his feet on the people’s coffee table.

  3. V572625694

    Looking at the lower picture reminds me of how utterly successful Karen Hughes was at restoring our relations with the Muslim world.

  4. SayItWithWookies

    Their new story is that they’re mad about President Obama defiling the place where the sacred heels of Dubya once rested. Has that man no respect for history?

  5. bago

    He even puts his feet on the floor of the people’s house, tracking mud all over the beautiful white house.

  6. SmutBoffin

    Also, Obama cannot use the W.H. toilets or the vibrating dildo in the Lincoln bedroom, since they were the gift of the Kaiser and the Pope, respectively.

  7. Advocatus_Diaboli

    Further, in over half of the cultures of the world, it is recognized not only as disrespectful, but as an extreme insult.”

    So now the wingnuts are worried about insulting mooslems?

    Irony is indeed dead.

  8. gurukalehuru

    I’m guessing that every president since Rutherford B. Hayes has had his feet up on that desk. It’s like Graumann’s fucking Chinese.

  9. Ruhe

    “Sorry, Libtards, we’ve studied the Dubya photo, as you call it, closely and we are certain that the desk pictured there is an early 20th century reproduction put in place while the original Resolute Desk was still at the Smithsonian being disinfected from all the Lewinski cooties. So, Obama is worse than Bush.” – Leigh and Leslie Keno

  10. Limeylizzie

    [re=514461]Advocatus_Diaboli[/re]: Yes, but invading those aforementioned cultures is seen as polite n’est-ce pas?

  11. Crazy Like Fox

    Hey, look, we even let him be *president,* okay? How much more does this guy want?

    Give ‘em an inch…

  12. Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Hell, if I were president, I’d not only have my feet up there, I’d not have any shoes on.

  13. Ruhe

    [re=514445]Buzz Feedback[/re]: The sarcasm of your comment is so sadly to the point that it will probably work for many posts to come.

  14. MzNicky

    Well, what do you expect from a guy who born secretly in a grass mud hut in Kenya not Hawaii, is a secret Muslin, tries to brainwash our children with TV messages about staying in school, won’t reveal his grade transcripts from Harvard Law School, and whose tall Negress wife want the gubmint to make our fat-ass kids exercise, plus other stuff. He’s BLACK, people! Wake up!

  15. Suds McKenzie

    “absolutely never done in an executive setting” Bwwaahahaha. Most executives don’t even wear pants.

  16. Redhead

    Well, duh Wonkette. It’s totally different if a (white) Repug does it – his feet aren’t all smelly from working in the fields, barefoot, all day. (They’re also not gross from being deployed somewhere, in a time of war, for months that somehow turn into years and with limited if any access to a shower.)

  17. iwillsavethispatient

    You know, somedays I think it’d be easier to let the wingnuts run the country. I live in a temperate climate, I’m not absolutely broke, I could probably survive.

    In fact, this guy should be president, since he’s so scatologically minded: Joe the Plumber dumps on John McCain and Sarah Palin. No, only joking, but I needed to share the headline with you anyway.

  18. eclecticbrotha

    What an arrogant mofo. How dare this shoe-shining usurper sit relaxed while genetically superior Aryans stand giving deference to him? Its enough to make Robert E. Lee’s head explode.

    “Our” furniture in “our” White House. It sure is getting harder by the day to avoid using the phrase “uppity Negro” in a sentence.

  19. MzNicky

    So really — the wingtards didn’t even bother with a Google search for a Dubya feet-on-the-desk photo before manufacturing this latest outrage? Hell, I knew there was one out there without really even knowing it. In fact, I think the tards just photoshopped Obammy and his guys onto the one of President McFlightsuit. Same camera angle, hand on side chair, and everything!

  20. Ducksworthy

    He is showing the traditional muslin sign of disrespect by showing soles of his shoes to the creeps from the DLC that his major funders required him to hire.

    Joe the Plumber says—

    “I need to talk to candidates before I endorse,” he told me afterwards, explaining that his bar is pretty high. “We have a series of conversations – 20 to 30 minute conversations – and I grill them. I ask them questions about energy, education – make sure they’re straight.”

    How the fuck exactly does he “make sure they’re straight?”

  22. Extemporanus

    Shit, if Obama knew it was gonna be that kinda party, he woulda stuck his dick on the Resolute Desk!

    (Unlike Bush, who kept his dick in a rusty Altoids tin stashed behind the spiderhole pistol desk lamp Cheney gave him for singlehandedly capturing and killing Sadam Hussein.)

  28. AnnieGetYourFun

    Imagine how mad they’re going to be when they realize that the drawers are all filled with gin and juice.

  29. BlueStateLiberal

    Obama should just completely re-decorate the Oval Office with African decor, and e-mail the photos to the wingnuts so that they’ll all have heart attacks and die. Problem solved.

  30. SuedeDwayne

    Excerpt from overview of the Nixon White House tapes:

    “Because five microphones were placed in the President’s desk, they picked up the sound of anyone writing on the desk, or setting down a coffee cup or a glass. Furthermore, they picked up the sound of Nixon’s chair banging into the desk, his feet banging on the desk when he put his feet up, and the sound of his knees knocking against the kneewell of his desk.”

    So Nixon is also disrespectful the desk, but he invented the Southern Strategy. Egads, what’s a wingnut to do?!?!?

    Wingnut syllogism:

    Major premise: All shoe-sole-showing is a Muslim insult
    Minor premise: President is showing shoe soles*
    Conclusion: President is Muslim

    As someone finishing a graduate degree in anthropology, I can say with some confidence that no comprehensive surveys of “half the cultures in the world” has ever been done in regards to puttings one’s feet on her majesty’s bureau.

    Science has, however, proven that more than half the posts on free republic are a total waste of bandwidth.

    the body language in that bush photo is interesting. bush looking his typical petulant self, rove enjoying the show, while hughes is clearly chastising andy card who is tuning her out… he’s very practiced at it: “‘Where’s lunch?’ They’d ordered cheeseburgers, but after fifteen minutes, they had not arrived. ‘Go get me Andy Card,’ Bush said to one of the Secret Service agents  [Card was] stolid and jovial, a man of solid, loyal character. Bush looked impatiently at Card, hard-eyed. ‘You’re the chief of staff. You think you’re up to getting us some cheeseburgers?’ Card nodded. No one laughed. He all but raced out of the room.”

  46. SlouchingTowardsWasilla

    I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that every President since Hayes, with the exceptions of Nixon and Reagon, neither of whom could have erections, has actually had his ass on that desk at some point while someone sat in the chair blowing him.

  47. ShiningMathPath

    Contrast Peggy Noonan’s ode to Ronald Reagan’s propped-up foot, a

    “highly polished brown cordovan wagging merrily on a hassock.. It was a beautiful foot, sleek…. Such casual elegance and clean lines!… But not a big foot, not formidable, maybe a little frail.”

  48. kizzytyler5

    Emancipation Proclamation: 1863. His people weren’t slaves them although I understand your point. I hope Sarah Palin runs for president so we can all see how stupid and crazy her followers are.

    Thanks for posting this so when the political dimwits who send me things like this send me this one, I’ll know where to find the response to it.

    And yes, these dorks are looking for any possible excuse to defame Obama. They will stoop as low as they feel they need to go because it really bothers them that a black man is President.

  53. CaliforniaMike

    El Dubyo was known to fart loudly and then accuse the person of lowest status in the room of having done it. Unfortunately, he tried to pin one of his SBD’s on Nancy Reagan once, and she was on him trying to scratch his eyes out before the Secret Service could stun her with a tranquilizer dart.

    Compared to the Dub, complaining about Obama would be like complaining about Billy Graham (he always forgets to flush the toilet).

  54. AnnieGetYourFun

    Indeed, I would never talk to my advisers with my feet up on the desk! My advisors, maybe, but not my advisers!

  55. HipHopOpotamus

    http://estnyboer.com/bush/images/desk_0903.jpg

    Does this photo taken in the Oval Office convey anything to you about attitude and arrogance?

    Would you speak with the Prime Minister and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands while pointing a finger at the Resolute Desk – a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880?

    We should inundate his Crawford, TX Ranch with emails demanding that he stop desecrating his office and keep his fingers to himself.

    This arrogant, immature, self-centered idiot demonstrates repeatedly that he has no sense of honor, or of simple decency.

    While this gesture is disrespectful in any culture, it is absolutely never done in any executive setting.

    Further, in over half of the cultures of the world, it is recognized not only as disrespectful, but as an extreme insult to point. In some cultures it could also get you killed!

    He thinks of himself as a king – above the rules of civility — and not as a servant of the people, humbly occupying our White House for his term in office.

    Electing him once was an enormous mistake — and will cost us in many ways, for generations.

  56. NotthatLC

    Please for the love of God REASSURE me that someone sent the lower picture to these mouth-breathing morons. It’s too bad it’s not physically possibly to point and laugh online.

  57. BlueStateLibtard

    The really funny thing is that they did the same thing a year ago, when they were all outraged over a photo of Obama without his jacket on in the Oval Office, and then five minutes later, some smartie-pants liberal did a 30-second Google search and found photos of a jacket-less Dubya, Reagan, etc. My goldfish have better memories than them.

  58. knobwurst

    I couldn’t help but notice that in Chimpy’s photo, everyone’s ignoring him. They’re probably so taken aback by seeing the bottoms of his loafers (regardless of what kind of footwear he’s wearing, on bush’s feet, they’re loafers) that they had to look away. Or, they knew better than anyone what a dumbass he is…

  59. Veritas78

  75. Hello Sunshine

    Highlights from Free Republic’s thread on this (I visited so you don’t have to):

    “Obama is demonstrating his skillful ability to shine their shoes.”

    “President Reagan never ever took his jacket off in the Oval office, he was simply extremely humbled to be in there. While Obama has his jacket on in that picture, I seen many where he doesn’t. One thing that I noticed about many of Obamas Oval office pictures is that, he never has very much things on that desk. Never. Google previous Presidents, and their desks are just stuffed with binders and papers. Obama’s rarely has anything.”

    “Not since LBJ gave an interview to a reporter from the toilet have we seen such hubris……..Recall what happened to LBJ’s presidency.”

    But my favourite one comes after someone says that Obama should at least have taken his shoes off and her certainly knows how to do that, followed by a pic of Obama taking his shoes off outside a mosque:

    “Think he has to remove his shoes at the airport? Then why should a non-muslim do so at an Islamic mosque?”

    Um… because he doesn’t want to, how can I put this, insult half the cultures in the world where traipsing your size 12s into a mosque would be considered offensive?

  76. desertwind

    Ha ha. This is making me all nostalgic for the big news story two or three days after the inauguration around a photo of Obama at the desk without his suit-jacket on.

    Ahh. So because Bush did it, it’s okay for Barry to do it? But just to be clear, if something was “done to Bush,” it’s not okay to do it to Barry? The rules of double standards and political correctness are more complex than the IRS guidelines. I’m just asking because when a cartoon about the chimp that mauled the lady early in Barry’s latest career move had some obtuse reference to Barry by naming the legislation he supported, everyone jumped up and down that this denigrated the office of the president. Even the “r” word was used. But then I cited an entire website comparing Bush to chimps, I was told that comparison was irrelevant. In fact, it was fine. Is this where the rule of “doeth until Bush what thou would not dare to doeth unto Barry” kicks in?

  87. Diamondhypothesis

    Hey wonkies (snickering), This will be my first comment and I looked through at least 6 photoshopped Trig Palin photos; with coat hangers and parodic references. I saw probably more comments on this picture than the conjunction of all 6 pics. I get the zeitgeist of the site, well from what I read from the another site; That it’s grotesque and you may be as foolish as you like. Whether I’m blogging the washington post or some ‘Stake and cheese’-satiristic gruel of sin, I find the ironic. The picture is usually kitschy and the conveyer captions despicably; yet commenters find ways to be more offensive and irrelevantly complaining, almost purposefully. I get blog sites are venues for uttered about convention, but I think I see the deepest darkest contraries to other wise certain opinions they’ve share publicly. Cowardice loons on a trip of ‘freedom of speech’. So I’m going to do something ironic to my behavior….. let ‘bama smear his “feets” on every white face while dancing bug bunny’s scat cat dance of the 50s. Here is why……. Because no matter how some may try to prove to have logistic stand points on delegate obama, You can’t help but shutter at his butter brown complexion and slender posture brightening the pages of encyclopedias from cryptic, fat, old and lazy white clones. ;)
