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]

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

  2. nappyduggs

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

  3. Oblios Cap

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 That’ll get the law repealed.

    Beans, beans, the magical fruit
    The more you eat
    The more likely we are to send you home in a cage.

    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.

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

    [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.

    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.

    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?

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

  18. Lionel Hutz Esq.

    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?

  19. Sancho

    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.

  20. GoinGreen

    “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!!

  22. Mr Blifil

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

  23. The Huffington Pogue

    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.

  24. JMP

    [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.

  25. GOPCrusher

    [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!

    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?

    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.

  28. southern mark smith

    [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.

  29. Lascauxcaveman

    [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.

  30. What Fresh Hell is This?

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

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

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