'some of my best friends ...'

MN State Senator: Integration ‘Ruined’ Minneapolis But He Still Likes Blacks

Let’s just do the direct quote thing: “The system is broke. My best friends are minority. They think integration is foolish. It’s a ploy. It’s to get more money.” Minnesota state senator Dan Hall, R-Burnsville. He says he graduated with a sixth-grade reading level, so god only knows how much worse it would be if he went to school with negroes! Whut?

And why is this red-faced white snausage delivering this sputtering idiocy about the black people who ruined everything for the white people? Because Minnesota’s state senate is apparently doing away with school integration programs. The coloreds never wanted all this fuss, no how, anyway! Dey jes’ happy bein’ alife, wid freedom.

    Edit: How 'bout

    Rep Hall: I oppose equal opportunity schooling, because a fair shot is un-American dammit. also

  2. pukebot

    well some of my best friends are toothless, racist, retarded, baby fucking morons. so there.

    1. ChuckieJesus

      Some of my family are redneck troglodytes, too. Which is funny, because the other side of my family are pretty ghetto. Which is not to say all black people are ghetto, just that some of my family are. Welcome to America in the 21st century: We're related to each other now, but still manage to hate each other nonetheless.

  3. comrad_darkness

    Wait, if he has a sixth-grade reading level, how did he get to state senator? Oh, he's a Republican. Well, then overqualified as hell. I'm surprised the Tea Party tolerates this bastard elitist.

  4. MadBrahms

    "Oh, no, you misheard me. I'm not saying I'm friends with *negras*. Just other maladjusted crypto-racists the majority of society rejects. THAT kind of minority."

  5. comrad_darkness

    This also confirms that my ongoing plan to spend the entirety of my travel budget on high quality booze is the right choice.

  6. Frost/Nixon/Robocop

    Seriously, the R at the end of their name should just stand for Racist. That will stop Lincoln from spinning in his grave.

  7. Lascauxcaveman

    Apparently, in his school district, they didn't cover civics until 7th grade. Way to go, Michigan. This could've been helped if they only had the "No Racist Douchebags Left Behind" school standards back in his day.

    1. Breitbart twink

      Whoa, whoa, he's a product of Minnesota schools, not Michigan. Just to be clear racists in MI are home-schooled.

      1. Terry

        Racists in MI use code. Instead of saying that they don't like black people, they just say they don't like Detroit.

  8. BZ1

    What a model for the failure of the Minneapolis school system, and the effrontery of those who use power as a bludgeon.

      Hey! I hired you fellas to get some tracks laid; not to dance around like a buncha Kansas City faggots!

            Now, come on, boys! Where's your spirit? I don't hear no singin'. When you was slaves, you sang like birds. Now come on, how 'bout a good ol' n****r work song?

          2. ChessieNefercat

            And I'm guessing what riles the types like the gentleman from Minnesota the most is the fear that Lily Von Shtupp wasn't kidding when she said "It's twue, it's twue!

          3. ChessieNefercat

            I just watched the 30th anniversary edition of Blazing Saddles. I had never really watched it all the way through and didn't realize how funny it was. I remember my sons loving the bean scene, but my daughter recalls watching it when she was about four, and wants to know what I was thinking (that it would keep them quiet for a couple of hours replaying the fart scene endlessly?).

  10. EdFlintstone

    Wow, I'm not sure even Palin or Bachmann could clear that stupid bar. I think we have a new up and comer in the tea party.

  11. Barbara_i

    He's got 8 kids? He must have 4 sets of twins. I can't believe this guy got laid 8 times.

    1. [redacted]hse

      Odd, though, how the children have that red hair, unlike any of their relatives.

  12. SayItWithWookies

    Burton says his rule is to "treat everyone with respect, right down the line." And so he respects his white friends' right to live in white neighborhoods, and his black friends' right to be shunted into substandard rental units in crappy school districts. I'm sure he's mystified about why minorities want to live in crappy neighborhoods, but he respects them too much to question it.

  13. metamarcisf

    Did you mean to write the headline as: "Integration ruined Minneapolis but he still likes blacks." Oh, I get it. April Fool.

  14. not that Dewey

    Apparently his reading comprehension has deteriorated further since graduation.

    1. OhNoGuy

      6th grade reading, 6th grade talking.
      If it's gonna be like this, I ain't gettin' no hearing aid.

      What? WHAT??

  15. harry_palmer

    Yet he proves that integration made Minneapolis a better place by admitting it got him to leave.

  16. Gopherit

    Um, Rep. Hall? One thing to note. Schools don't magically put information in your head. You have to actually do some work and…well, you know, learn. If you graduated with a 6th Grade reading level, that says way more about your effort than how good your school was. The browns didn't keep you from learning. Also, it's possible you are just really stupid. Someone has to dig the ditches…..and serve in state legislatures.

    1. OhNoGuy

      I think it's kind of a Buddhist yin and yang thing. He could explain it better over a couple pints of Everclear. At breakfast.

    2. Negropolis

      He's a Republican. They don't have to make sense. In fact, it's a Republican bylaw.

  17. a_pink_poodle

    Aw man am I going to have to drink out of the Colored fountain now? Plus I'm half Asian and half White, do I get to go through the Whites entrance like on my birthday and public holidays and hoof it to the backdoor on the other days?

    1. Crank_Tango

      if you're a girl person I will hoof it to your back door for you. wait, what were we talking about?

      1. a_pink_poodle

        Sorry I'm not a girl person but I'm still open to your offeerrrrr! <3

        Hehe no but seriously you keep the hell away from my backdoor.

  18. philpjfry

    OK I watched while he looked at his notes to see where he went to school, twice. I couldn't get beyond the point where he says "They ruined our schools with sgeregation and integration." Aren't they two mutualy exclusive things? And what is wrong with the states up there? Are the great lakes that polluted? There is just a mass of stupid in that part of the country. Why?

    1. Ken Layne

      Yeah, same here. This guy melted my brain so much with his "segregation is integration" thing that I actually typed "Segregation" instead of "Integration" in the headline. SAME THING RIGHT?

      1. TanzbodenKoenig

        The cognitive dissonance is reaching critical, brain melting levels. I can actually feel myself developing a craving for corn syrup and a distaste for walking and critical thought the more I watch videos like this and surf Breitbart

    2. kissawookiee

      He knew it was one of those -ashun words and was pretty sure it wasn't congregation, since that's Jesusy, so he was just flinging the other two he could think of against the wall in the hope that one would stick.

  19. berkeleyfarm

    I got the impression from a friend of mine who lives in Burnsville that what you speak of is pretty easy there.

    Seriously, wtf?

  20. SorosBot

    Let me guess: this guy's State Senate district is part of the US Congressional district that elected Bachmann, isn't it?

    1. exmartinette

      It isn't, his congressman is John Kline. Just as conservative but a tad more discreet.

  21. 4tehlulz_lite

    So he's complaining about getting what he wants?

    Republicans are the world's worst winners.

    1. Callyson

      I initially read that as "Republicans are the world's worst whiners." But your comment is spot – on as is.

    1. comrad_darkness

      He's a Republican . . . check if his housekeeper is a trannie. (Not that there's anything wrong with that, mind you.)

  22. edgydrifter

    "I don't know why, but when the blacks moved into my neighborhood, crosses just started bursting into flames on their front yards, and bricks started jumping up off the ground and breaking all their windows. It's weird. Now, I have deep respect for those of the black persuasion, but mayhem like that is no good for property values. I think everyone can agree we'd all be better off if those folks stayed in their warrens down by the slaughterhouses and tanneries, as is their native custom."

    –Sen. Dan Hall (R-Bigotsville)

  23. Walkinwiddaking

    Man. These folks are right out in the open without any fear of recrimination. That's scary and at the same time a call to arms.

  24. TanzbodenKoenig

    my best friends are minority

    He does realize, that without integration, those "best friends" of his would still be relegated to second class citizenship and would most likely be shining his shoes instead of shooting the shit with him?

  25. PsycWench

    Your best friends are minorities? Would those be compassionate Republicans? Literate teabaggers?

    1. comptoneffect

      Ha ha, you can't fool me there ain't no such things as compassionate Republicans.

    2. harry_palmer

      No – if that's what he meant he would have said "My best friends are (oxy)morons."

  26. Gold_ManSacks

    LoLZ Minnesotanz are so stupid that the people who brag about having a 6th grade reading level get elected to State Senate. This explains much about Bachmann.

  27. GuanoFaucet

    Sixth grade education means he rode the all-white short bus to school every day, right?

    1. anniegetyerfun

      "The system is broke."

      Reading level isn't the only thing of his that stopped at sixth grade.

    1. Gopherit

      Well, his wife does. I wonder if this is all because they're a shade browner than he is?

  28. user-of-owls

    Aw fuck. Didn't even need Layne (yet) for this one. Asscunt Koran Burner follows through on his asscunt pledge, and asscuntedly burns Korans at his ludicrous asscunt 'church' in ludicrous asscunt 'Florida.'

    Consequence? As yet undetermined number of UN personnel murdered by an enraged mob in Afghanistan. More white hot pokers up this asscunt's ass (cunt) in hell.
    Aw fuck.

      1. genxr

        The funny thing is he's safe in America which protects his freedom to be a tremendous ass, and yet he feels so threatened he carries a gun at all times.

    1. gef05

      BBC are running it as the headline, but CNN has it as a minor lead. Any idea if it was ever more important to CNN than domestic auto sales? For fuck's sake.

      1. Pres[ $ rm -r * ]

        Not surprisingly it is also the lead on the bastion of Middle East sanity, the commie fascist Muslin caliphate loving Al Jazeera.

        This just gives Rev. Asscunt and people like Pammie Geller more ammunition (!) fir their argument that Muslins are evil/must be eradicated…

  29. anniegetyerfun

    They ruined our system with integration and segregation?

    Well, one is rather the opposite of the other, so are you just saying that black people ruined everything by being around?

    1. SayItWithWookies

      He never said integration and segregation ruined America at the same time. They took turns. He's just saying it's segregation's turn to ruin America again.

  30. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    The Republicans are all against integration, but see who is the first up to the stage with the $5s when the black strippers come out.

  31. Callyson

    integration is foolish. It’s a ploy. It’s to get more money
    Er, unless they do some creative accounting up there in Minnesota, don't the schools get funded per student? As in, it makes no difference if you've got a school that is integrated or not, the school gets a set amount of $ per student? Or is that 3/5 rule still in effect?

  32. Boojum_Reborn

    It is the expression of fucktardish pride on his face that is so endearing. It's like he's saying, "Looky Mommy, watch me make a big doody in my pants!"

  33. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    But, really, outside of the Twins and the Vikings, are their people of color in Minnesota?

    1. weejee

      My 'great nephew' went to school there and he did comment that melanin impairment was a rather chronic condition. Also felt it was way TFC compared to C'Addle.

    2. Pop_Socket

      That's a shock to me too. Funny how the biggest racists are in the places where they have the least interaction with the objects of their hate.

    1. ChessieNefercat

      Even Maria Montessori would have given up on the stupid hateful little snot and belted him upside the head.

      Then, sadly, she would have retreated weeping, realizing that some of the little shits just aren't worth the effort (hint, do they sneak swigs of corn syrup behind their desk lids?).

  34. sportshort

    My, my, dey does seem to be popping outa de ignorant bush these days don't dey? I guess dey feels de good ole days is right 'round de cornah, as soon as dey gits rid of dat ebony prez and evahbody keeps they guvvamint hands off they damn medeecar.

  35. bflrtsplk

    The Republicans should just change their names to the Stupids and be done with it. Everyone will understand.

    1. zhubajie

      Relatively intelligent Reps who are mostly interested in small business, balanced budgets, have been forced out for the most part. I know any number of refugees, mournign the days when the party was for rational people and the nuts just went to church, didn't vote.

  36. Gopherit

    Man, the downfisties are out in force today. I am shocked…..SHOCKED….that they have nothing better to do on a friday evening. Speaking of which, have a great evening Wonkateers.

    1. not that Dewey

      You, too. Na zdrovia.

      I am testing my hypothesis that Irish Whiskey ==> fun reading Wonkette comments. So far, it's working.

    2. El Pinche

      Spending hours painstakingly clicking every single thumbs down keeps them from hyper eating or masturbating to victoria jackson. I think Wonkette serves humanity.

      1. ChessieNefercat

        I'd rather the jackasses go ahead and fap off to videos of Victoria Jackson and Sarah Palin going at it and leave us alone.

        It would better serve humanity if they fapped themselves right into heart attacks. Or ate their way to one, either way works for me. Stupid fat bastards.

  37. neiltheblaze

    I honestly never thought I'd see Birchers become mainstream and acceptable. I'm amazed and appalled. This is what happens when only 40% of the voting population goes to the polls. Fuck these jokers – I want MY country back.

    1. XOhioan

      Exactly. I live in Chicago and went to the big Obamapalooza when he was elected. On my way there, I chatted with two young black men who were also on their way to the event. They both admitted that although they were very happy, they hadn't bothered to vote.

  38. gef05

    I'm sure he meant:

    “The system is broke. My best friends are majority. They think Republicanism is foolish. It’s a ploy. It’s to get more money.”

  39. owhatever

    I have been in total awe this week as Republican legislators and leaders across this mighty land have stepped forward to outdumb each other and become a Tea Party darling. Is this a great country, or what?

  40. marinmaven

    It is only because we got liberal, elitist, fact-based, metrosexual booklearning that this level of stupidity and bigotry bothers us. It's our fault really. Sigh.

  41. zhubajie

    He did promise loose shoes, tight pussy and a warm place to shit! That's almost socialist compared to now.

  42. Tommmcatt

    This is the basic difference between liberals and conservatives: This man left high-school reading at a 6th grade level, and my parents taught me to read by age 4. At age 6 I was reading Treasure Island.

    In a nutshell, conservatives are teh stupid.

    1. berkeleyfarm

      To be completely fair, this daughter-of-Nixon-voters had the same experience. But education was valued in our household, and treated as a Good Thing. It was also something to respect and be proud of in the small-town society we lived in.

      Of course back in those days, it seemed like most conservatives could do math.

      That guy has a bad combination of a serious chip on his shoulder and No Home Training.

    1. lulzmonger

      You are represented by the slope-browed, finger-sniffing mouthbreathers you have, not the slope-browed, finger-sniffing mouthbreathers you WISH you had.

  43. Chet Kincaid

    Big city, northern desegregation is an old, dead, absurd issue, a silly fix for a non-problem. Courts don't need to stop cities from segregating kids anymore because they don't live near each other anyway; shuttling kids to schools an hour's driving distance away is an ass-backwards solution to a non-existent problem and further insults minorities by telling them they must sit next to white kids at all costs if they want to succeed.

    The real problem with education is that most cities' and suburbs' school funding is based on property taxes, and every family with children and resources chooses where to live based on this. Come to Oak Country Maple Brook Hills, we're all rich and the schools are opulent! How would you fix this? Fund schools on a statewide basis and make the funding equal statewide. HAHAHAHAHAHA, suburban Moms and Dads will get right behind this! It is a problem that is never going to be fixed, especially since Republican-controlled local governments are all running as fast as they can away from any responsibility for education.

    1. PublicLuxury

      This was an issue on Montana in the early 90's, but for a different reason. Small rural schools sued the Department of Education, in Montana it is called The Office of Public Instruction, to equalize the funding. The schools were soo poor and so far away from each other that combining schools would not solve the problem. They won. The rural schools started to get more State Dollars and began offering more diverse studies. The bigger and wealthier districts raised their levees to keep the funding level current. It was a win/begrduged win

  44. comrad_darkness

    There was a headline the other day with census statistics stating that blacks were migrating back to the south. I totally understand this now.

    1. Limeylizzie

      Don't put the hideous wall-eyed Christie with my favourite Republican, Michael Steele, Rachel loves him and she admitted it on her show last night.

  45. WhatTheHeck

    Now this explains why Tea Party signs are written at, or below, 6th grade level.

    Know who else was/is an illiterate Bigot in office?

    1. Crank_Tango

      I dunno, something about comparing Hitler to today's teabaggers somehow seems demeaning to Hitler, and by extension belittles the holocaust, so I am gonng go with….

      St Ronnie?

  46. ttommyunger

    OK, Bubba. You just try putting that toothpaste back in the tube and see how many cops it takes to guard you and your fucking shitbox of a house 24/7 just to keep you and your fucktard family reasonably safe and sound. Oh, and BTW, how many of those cops are going to be, you know, black?

    1. PublicLuxury

      He lives in the burbs, Tommy. There are no coloreds allowed in the burbs. All the colored policemen, that speak, you know, the colored language, all have to live near Nicollet Mall downtown. That's where 'they' live.

  47. not that Dewey

    O/T, but the new Following Troll is named "FU Wonkette Wankers". According to its description, it would like to offer us some of its double standards.

      You mean double standards like: the government exists only to help those poor poor corporations but don't you dare touch my medicares!

      1. not that Dewey

        Yes — that, or "waaaa liberal media always being mean to conservatives" and then spending 153 hours per day interviewing Newt and Breitbart and Erickson and then prattling on about Barry's "weak poll numbers".

        There's a fine line between "double standard" and "self-fulfilling prophecy".

    2. Crank_Tango

      sounds like someone is crying out for attention. and that is just the same old stalker we have had for a while but with a different name, right? Constantly crying out for attention.

      Hey asshole, if you want to get your diaper changed, you have to shit your pants some more.

      1. not that Dewey

        Well, the 10:1 following-to-followers ratio would seem to suggest that. And, yes, I'm fairly sure it's the same troll, but I refuse to go look.

        …you have to shit your pants some more

        I'm not certain even that would inspire me.

    3. ChessieNefercat

      Who knew that the commenting systems would be such a haven for those worthless asswipes that were temporarily shut down when stalking laws started to appear? Those pesky restraining orders! Now they can stalk people as much as they like with no fear of being arrested. I bet they feel so strong and powerful! Sadly, they are are neither.

      Just the same sorry, worthless losers they have been all their stunted lives. And no matter how much time they spend downfisting Wonkette comments, of all things, they will still be losers. Sadly they're apparently too stupid to grasp this.

      Carry on, downfisting moron! Your clever name changes aren't really fooling anyone, you know. Or do you just forget who you are?

  48. PublicLuxury

    Uppity coloreds need to know their place! It ain't in the WHITE House. See what happens when you educate the rabble? They get all uppity and urban.

  49. Troubledog

    Most people in MN would say Jim Gaffigan has a nice tan. Good job integrating, guys!

  50. imissopus

    I looked up his bio, he was apparently quite the hockey stud as a youngster. So I'm thinking: jock who coasted through high school, and took a lot of hits to the head. Add that to what I assume to be a natural assholishness, and you get this video.

    I don't know about nowadays, but MN used to lead the nation in Native Americans behind bars.

  52. not that Dewey

    America is also exceptional at committing genocide and then finding really clever euphemisms to describe it, i.e. "Manifest Destiny", "War on Terror", "PreColumbian", "American Exceptionalism", &c

    1. Radiotherapy

      "The peculiar institution," "The Indian Wars," "strategic bombing," enhanced interrogation," "freedom is not free," "liberating oppressed peoples," "No domino shall fall," …..

        Thank you. I was having a wee bit o' Writer's Block (namely, "Jameson's") and I couldn't think of all of them.

          Bushmill's for me, I felt the same way..all of 'em.
          "Remember the Alamo," "friendly fire," "the Espionage Act of 1917," "the Sedition Act of 1918," "the Middle Class Tax Relief Act of 2010." "Uncle Joe,"….
          There's got to be thousands of these maniacal misrepresentations.

          1. not that Dewey

            America — FUCK YEAH!

            I will also drink Bushmill's, when available. It's a bit peatier, but whatever. I'm tryin' to get a little Irish in me.

          2. zhubajie

            Me too. Sometimes I get a lecture about it's from the North, but what the Hell, spirits have no politics.

          3. not that Dewey

            the "The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009", the "Troubled Asset Relief Program", the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act ", and "whatever the Breitbart troll has as a talking point at the moment", &c

            The Irish is working.

    2. zhubajie

      The biggest execution in US history, 38 men on a single gallows, took place in Mankato, MN: the leaders of the Sioux Revolt of 1862. The remaining eastern Sioux were exiled to South Dakota. I like to remind southerners of this when I get tired of their whining about the Civil War.

  53. PublicLuxury

    This 'person' obviously still has the reading level of a middle school-er as demonstrated by his obvious lack of being able to read the directions on a condom box. Just think, Wonketters, this person bred. A lot!

  54. BarackMyWorld

    Now, I'm not saying Hall is a racist, but isn't it interesting that he doesn't want to be anywhere near black people?

    1. PublicLuxury

      I do not think it is interesting at all. I think it is wonderful to have color in the world. I am saddened that MY country is still racist. I thought we were past that phase.

      Now for the snark…
      He doesn't want black people near him because in the rural areas they're hard to track and hunt at night.

  55. CessnaDriver

    Minneapolis Roosevelt.

    Jesse Ventura went there! I took auto mechanics there.

    How this putz ended up like this, I will never know.


    According to the 2010 Census, the blacks and the browns are moving to the South, so with what is left up there, Minnesota is becoming the new Texas.
    Worse, Garrison Keillor is retiring.

  57. KenLayIsAlive

    Thank you Wonkette for bringing us "Poop-stew brained State Senator Week" and also thank you for destroying my once strongly held beliefs in democracy. I guess.

    Also, why does this guy hate Prince?

  58. DustBowlBlues

    It's clear that Minnesota us trying to out-stoopid OK in the Moran Olympics. I'm going to have to start paying attention to our lege so I can send Ken some really stupid shit.

  59. Negropolis

    Like this fucker had to illuminate us with the fact that he reads at a 6th grade level. No shit, Sherlock.

    Mr. Hall, your minority friends didn't mean what you think they meant. Folks like this guy are the ones I honestly kind of pity. He is so incredibly earnest in what he believes, and he doesn't seem like a bad guy, just a profoundly dumb man with no interest in expanding his horizons. Poor, stupid fool.

    You're the guy who reads at a 6th grade level, and they're the ones that "destroyed" the district, right? Yo, Hitler; this is the "master race" of which you speak, right? Yeah, ok.

    Yeesh. So he reads at a sixth grade level. At what grade level do you suppose that book of his is written?

    OK, I am from the whitest town in England, I had not seen a person of colour until I was about 14 , our idea of minorities were the Italians and Greeks that ran all the restaurants on the seafront. However, once I started going to parties in London and discovered that Jamaicans had the best music , and were so much more attractive than all the pale , spotty youths I knew, my whole worldview changed, I integrated myself.

    His teachers were "fabulous" but he only learned to read (and speak in proper grammar) at the 6th grade level? Who's to blame then? Seems like a little of that personal responsibility everyone's talking about might come in handy.

    Also sounds like they didn't teach sex ed in his school, either.

    How do we know that the Republicans haven't been punking us for the last decade? There could be a camera trained on us recording our pissy reactions right now!!!

    My best friends are minority.

    MINORITIES : Some of our best friends are racist crackers.

    A proud product of the Minn. school system, and a 6th-grade reading level all in the same sentence?

    I totally believe he has a sixth-grade reading ability. Unfortunately, he has a Kindergarten reasoning ability.

    I have to agree with the good senator here. Once upon a time, Minnesota was inhabited almost exclusively by socialist Norwegians, Swedes and Germans. They had a nice little sort of socialist state back when everybody looked like everybody else (except Indians, who were easily expendable). The we started noticing dark complected people and the Godly GOP pointed out to the good yoeman out on the farm that these dark people were to be despised. So we lost the People's Republic of Minnesota to hate and fear. Amen.
