NATION OF SELF-PARODIES  2:01 pm April 26, 2010

by Jim Newell

IS THIS A PROTEST FOR OR AGAINST THE LAW? “The conflict over a sweeping crackdown on illegal immigration in Arizona intensified Monday as vandals smeared refried beans in the shape of swastikas on the state Capitol’s windows.” No no that was just Nazi Lou Dobbs playing with his poopy. UPDATE: We have replaced the funny actual image of Lou Dobbs with this one, of his poopy swastika. [AP/TPM]

Bean Partiers?

bago April 26, 2010 at 2:05 pm

Who let the beans out?

Nappied Hypotenuse April 26, 2010 at 2:06 pm

Pinto or Black?

Radiotherapy April 26, 2010 at 2:08 pm

Probably goes good with Dora-itos and Krystal Nachos.

SayItWithWookies April 26, 2010 at 2:10 pm

It’s just typical that the protester bringing the salsa in the shape of a hammer-and-sickle was held up by the cops.

4tehlulz April 26, 2010 at 2:11 pm

Obviously a guerrilla Taco Bell campaign gone horribly wrong.

nappyduggs April 26, 2010 at 2:11 pm

That’s one-third of the way to a decent plate of nachos! What a waste of perfectly good hobo beans.

WhatTheHeck April 26, 2010 at 2:12 pm

I hope there was lard in those beans because Az wants no pork in their government.

Oblios Cap April 26, 2010 at 2:12 pm

Cover all the white Arizonans with those refried beans and everybody will have to produce papers. That’ll get the law repealed.

Just sayin’ you might want to dial it back a bit.

Beans, beans, the magical fruit

I agree with the words of police state law Rep. Pearce here: “It’s outrageous that these people continue to support law breakers over law keepers,”. Yes, supporting a legislator who would pass a law that blatantly violates the Constitution is outrageous.

And law supporters are “fed up with the many problems brought on by illegal immigration.” Um, what problems? There isn’t a single one mentioned in that article.

Come here a minute April 26, 2010 at 2:18 pm

It’s neither for nor against — it is art about the law.

weejee April 26, 2010 at 2:18 pm

Dora had the frijoles refritos in her backpack

Crank Tango April 26, 2010 at 2:18 pm

Also, if you lay one tortilla chip on top of another, you can make a tasty yellow star, also.

TakingAmes April 26, 2010 at 2:20 pm

[re=564317]4tehlulz[/re]: Yet he seems confused. “If I had anything to say about it, we’d be doing it in Colorado,” Tancredo told Denver news station KDVR. But, he said, “I do not want people here, there in Arizona, pulled over because you look like should be pulled over.” Wha?

It strikes me that the phrase “Nazi Lou Dobbs playing with his poopy” pretty accurately describes this man’s entire oevre for the last ten years.

They should’ve drawn a picture of Mohammed in refried beans. That really would’ve confused them.

Lionel Hutz Esq. April 26, 2010 at 2:29 pm

Are we sure this is not a viral marketing campaign for Taco Bell’s new Bratwürste flavored refried beans?

[re=564330]Extemporanus[/re]: A few years ago, a catholic church in my neighborhood underwent a renovation. Somebody got the idea to put up a sign “Jesus at work”. All I could think when I first saw it was that Manuel and Juan were gonna be pissed that Jesus got all the credit.

Extemporanus April 26, 2010 at 2:32 pm

[re=564331]Radiotherapy[/re]: Sí, amigo, and no es de estufas los Mexijews will sell you to refrito it on.

southern mark smith April 26, 2010 at 2:33 pm

[re=564317]4tehlulz[/re]: But Bill Kristol thinks that only 5 – 13 people will ever be affected by this law, as far as he can imagine, so it’s really no problem.

Extemporanus April 26, 2010 at 2:34 pm

That new image looks like shit.

Tim April 26, 2010 at 2:34 pm

Maybe it’s just the business man in me, but swastikas on Gubmint buildings are gonna save us money. There won’t be any public buildings with out swastikas when I’m governor. And that’s just right. Makes sense to me.

Does it to you?

CapnFatback April 26, 2010 at 2:36 pm

[re=564320]ArkansasFred[/re]: Nicely done, sir.

BOOBIES! April 26, 2010 at 2:36 pm

The green mounds underneath the swastikas are made of guacamole.

Is this some kind of a joke? What’s the difference between Lou Dobbs and a shitty swastika?

Lionel Hutz Esq. April 26, 2010 at 2:41 pm

Jim: Re: Update:

You say you have changed the image, but I can’t see any difference? How does one distinguish a poopy swastika from Lou Dobbs?

Buzz Feedback April 26, 2010 at 2:42 pm

65 degrees at 7 in the morning? I could never live there.

Sancho April 26, 2010 at 2:42 pm

And are the AZ authorities sure it’s actually beans? I’d hate to be the poor cop that had to lean in real close and give that thing a nice physical inspection, only to discover it was the far more frightening possibility.

GoinGreen April 26, 2010 at 2:49 pm

“If I go to another foreign country, if I go to Mexico, I have to have papers,” said Bill Baker, 60, who took time off work at a downtown Phoenix restaurant to sell umbrellas and Mexican and American flags to the largely Hispanic crowd of protesters. “So I don’t feel there’s anything particularly harsh about the law.”

He didn’t “take time off” – the fucking restaurant was closed because all the chefs & busboys were busy marching in protest!!

Tommmcatt April 26, 2010 at 2:52 pm


The swastika has a lot more charisma.

Godwin’s Law: the Refried Bean Edition

Mr Blifil April 26, 2010 at 3:08 pm

Smearing swastikas from poop would be the most creative endeavor Lou Dobbs has ever attempted.

The Huffington Pogue April 26, 2010 at 3:10 pm

So, are they calling the law a Nazi law or implying that the country is being taken over by immigrants and therefore we must couple our racist refried bean stereotypes with symbols of hatred? This is more confusing that when the LaRouchers crashed the Tea Party Health Care forums.

El Pinche April 26, 2010 at 3:11 pm

[re=564359]GoinGreen[/re]: He’s wrong anyway; you need a passport to enter another country, but not while you’re walking around there. And this applies to anyone a cop thinks might be illegal, and is incredibly vague what kind of “papers” would serve to prove US citizenship. Normally, people can walk around without carrying ID.

What Fresh Hell is This? April 26, 2010 at 3:26 pm

I think it just magically appeared — like Jesus on a tortilla!

GOPCrusher April 26, 2010 at 3:29 pm

[re=564340]southern mark smith[/re]: Heard his comment on Faux Noise Sunday and almost did a spit take. It was followed up later with Charles Krauthammer claiming that the reason Arizona has such a problem with illegals is that they don’t have a fence up along the border. All the Messcans sneaking into the country are being funneled in to Arizona because of the lack of a fence.

Needs moar facepalm!

Monsieur Grumpe April 26, 2010 at 3:43 pm

Bean style protests makes me hungry.

Virgin Birther April 26, 2010 at 3:44 pm

Note to protestors: Look around you, you’re in Arizona: the buildings are brown, the landscape is brown, the wind is brown, you’re brown, even whitey is brown. So maybe you could use something with just a touch of contrast next time? Hell, even some of that green shit you sell the gringos on Futbol Christmas would read better than brown on brown on brown on brown. Don’t y’all have at least one faggot in your ranks that you could run these things by?

snoidoid April 26, 2010 at 3:46 pm

Step 1: Boycott Arizona until we see Governor Brewer’s birth certificate.

Step 2: When she finally shows it, protest that it isn’t the real one, and demand to see the real one.

Step 3: Return to step 1.

southern mark smith April 26, 2010 at 4:14 pm

[re=564435]GOPCrusher[/re]: I don’t have the fortitude to watch that crap live. The buzz from my bloody mary is too valuable to waste, and so I wait until TP summarizes it for me, and I can drink in peace, on a Sunday morning.

And that way my 3-year-old won’t smear “refried beans” on the teevee.

Lascauxcaveman April 26, 2010 at 4:19 pm

[re=564451]Virgin Birther[/re]: The green stuff? Oh, you must be referring to what the gringos call “gwock.” Smear that on a window, and after 15 minutes of direct AZ sun, it’s browner than frijoles, hombre.

What Fresh Hell is This? April 26, 2010 at 4:40 pm

I demand that bean recipes henceforth be given only in English!

Ducksworthy April 26, 2010 at 5:31 pm

The worst thing is… I suspect those may be post-consumer frijoles.

mustardman April 26, 2010 at 6:53 pm

Soooo….who was the luck person that had to figure out if it was beans or something else?

AKAM80TheWolf April 26, 2010 at 10:30 pm

That looks like smeared shit to me

Missouri might be the “Show Me” state, but now Arizona is the “Show Me Your Papers” state.
