Racist Bake Sale Proves College Republicans Are Annoying

The gay race probably even gets free cupcakes.UC Berkeley College Republicans (newsflash: they have those!) want to make a serious point about how affirmative action is racist against white males, which they will accomplish by holding a bake sale that is racist against everyone else. Brilliant populism! The backdrop for this is a law proposed by California governor Jerry Brown that would allow state colleges to consider race and gender in applications, which in the reduced terms of a harebrained GOP student bake sale demonstration of “why this is bad” means that white male snack fiends have to pay $2 per cupcake, and everybody else pays a few quarters less for a baked good according to a randomly assigned scale of “this is how much less than a white guy you are worth.” Who can refute that kind of mathematical argument?

Asian-Americans? $1.50. Latinos? $1.00. Black people, oh, they are very cheap compared to white guys, they only pay $0.75. Ladies are worth 25 cents less than men across the board. Moral of the story: find the black ladies on campus, hippies! They will buy you cheap snacks.

From CNN:

“We agree that the event is inherently racist, but that is the point,” [Berkeley College Republican] President Shawn Lewis wrote in response to upheaval over the bake sale. “It is no more racist than giving an individual an advantage in college admissions based solely on their race (or) gender.”

Yes, eight black women are worth one white guy, is what they are trying to say, which is racist against white guys. UNASSAILABLE LOGIC. [CNN]

    Great, now I have to pretend to like minority people so I can get my hands on discounted festive buttery baked goods.

    1. MaxUdargo

      Remember, being black isn't about something as superficial as your skin color. Blackness is based on something more profound and meaningful: the length of your penis.

      Or, if you're a woman, then okay, your skin must be at least as black as Halle Berry's. But whose isn't?

      1. ChuckieJesus

        Or, if you're a woman, then okay, your skin must be at least as black as Halle Berry's. But whose isn't?

        Shit, even low rent honkies like my husband are dingy compared to me. Blax and whites have been in the same families for several generations, now. You know how you end up looking like your spouse as you grow older? Yeah, kinda like that.

    1. Callyson

      Berkeley alum here…Sadly, Cal's College Republicans were one of the more active groups, at least when I was there. Some kind of twisted rebellion against the prevailing liberal spirit on campus, perhaps. I like to think that the kids are in for the shock of their lives when they get to the real world and see what the Republicans have done to this nation. Or maybe I am just too optimistic…

      1. superdave

        Yup. Another Cal alum here. The College Republicans were the most organized, active political group when I was a student too. I think because they're surrounded by unwashed hippie freaks they band together into a tight knit Fascist Youth Group or something.

        1. ChuckieJesus

          Nothing like having wider society against you to make you band together harder. That's true for any subculture.

    2. mumbly_joe

      It's worth noing that there's UC Berkeley, and then the City of Berkeley. The City of Berkeley is the one that tried to ban army recruiters. UC Berkely is the one that employs John Yoo to teach people about International Law.

    3. BerkeleyBear

      When I was there, they liked to brag they were the biggest group on campus. Which was probably true, since 1) everyone with the slightest non-PC worldview (ie every straight white or asian male on campus) at some point was tempted to go to some event involving them and thus be counted as a "member", 2) it was a great beard for closeted/doubting gay guys (including, I'm pretty sure, their treasurer who was also my roommate one year (we were in a fraternity together, which it turns out was also a great beard for a number of folks) and 3) every other group was so damn specific (Hemp Enthusiasts for Eastern European Nuclear Security, Serbo-Croatian life sciences majors for ethical warfare, etc.) that none of them had critical mass.

      I knew a bunch of them in college. This is exactly the bs they pulled back then (the less organized version of it was screaming shit at marchers in a Get Back the Night event – I'm still embarrassed I didn't beat the shit out of one asshole when I had the chance).

    1. MaxUdargo

      Step 1: Sit down with your fellow young Republicans and think up the most obnoxious, inflammatory demonstration of assholery you can. Snicker.

      Step 2: When everybody gets upset about your obnoxious, inflammatory demonstration, express shock at the "intensely violent reaction" and express fear and dismay that anonymous comments on your group's Facebook page contained death threats. Fan yourself with your hand. Shake your head in disappointment.

      Step 3: Later attend conservative convention of some sort and be greeted as a hero for standing up to those who would impose "political correctness" on honest Americans simply trying to engage in civil discourse. Cry tears of sadness. Or snicker. Doesn't matter, you're a young Republican. All your emotions are sarcastic.

      1. Chichikovovich

        That's about right, except in this case you should replace step 1) with step 1*) Do the same tired crap that college Republicans have been doing since the 80s, back when Rush gave them the idea in the first place, and act like you're all original and daring.

      1. Fare la Volpe

        Hon, you chase that Nubian Goddess to the ends of the earth. Just don't show her the Obama watermelon e-mails from Aunt Dolores.

      2. PalinzADummy

        The thing I like most about Black women? They don't take shit from nobody. So you just go ahead and tell that li'l lady you got dibs on her.

        It sure was nice knowing you!

    1. PalinzADummy

      "Hi, I've got a white guy I'd like to get rid of, and heard you offer eight black women in exchange?"

      I'd suggest you call your local branch of the Black Panthers, but pretty much any urban neighbourhood you make that offer in, you're bound to get results.

    1. PalinzADummy

      I had to order another dozen lace-edged lawn handkerchiefs just yesterday to mop up all the tears I've shed over their plight.

  2. OC_Surf_Serf

    With all the money we owe China because of Republican policies shouldn't Chinese-Americans get them for free?

    (And seriously…a bake sale? Why not be a courageous example to other College Republicanss and just go Galt?)

    1. PalinzADummy

      They haven't thought out their position, obvs. And they're not gonna go Galt. These tender little buds are Mummy's and Daddy's darlings. They come to Berkeley to go to school and their parents buy them a fucking condo and a sportscar so their privileged little asses won't have to worry about little details like rent and transportation. Within weeks, they wreck their cars because no one ever told them they need to get the oil changed, or pay their parking tickets, or park in permitted areas in order to reduce the risk of getting towed. Go Galt? Pah! It's a miracle they can wipe their asses without the maid.

  3. weejee

    Oh noes!!!1! There is a serious disturbance in the farce. A total Twinkie rebellion in Berkeley. Will the rascals get appropriately sprayed with canned icing to show them just what for?

    1. PalinzADummy

      Berkeley, which was once (like all other State schools) a place where working class people could send their kids, has now been taken over by these milksops who can afford to pay the increasing fees the Regents impose; and the working-class kids for whom it was built are increasingly not able to obtain a college education at all.

      Sorry. Extra crabby and hateful today, in honour of impending medical appointments.

      1. BerkeleyBear

        Ah, Cal's still a good deal (if you can get in). It costs a lot more than it should, but that's still about 1/3 of what private schools cost. Of course, if I was a minority or poor student with really good grades/SATs, I'd apply to the Ivies or even the dreaded Stanfurd (rhymes with turd), because their endowments can actually make for a much cheaper college experience.

        It also always had a core of white entitled douchebads (and some Asian douches for color). Exhibit A is {ete Wilson the double Cal grad turned governor who decided law and med school students should pay double since they'd make it back some day (public service be damned).

        1. PalinzADummy

          I hate Pete Wilson with the heat of a thousand suns, may he develop incurable hemorrhoids and remain, ever after, unable to sit in comfort. But despite the fact that it costs 1/3 what private schools cost, working-class people simply can't afford a four-year degree there any more. Of course, working-class families can't afford to *live* in Brk anymore either, but that's another bitter rant for another time.

  4. SexySmurf

    College Republicans have been doing these bake sales for years; they need to try something they've never done before. May I suggest sex (the consensual and/or heterosexual kind)?

    1. PalinzADummy

      Oh, come on. If they REALLY wanted to raise big money they'd offer to be buggered by the entire progressive contingent of the greater Bay Area. They'd be rich overnight.

    2. poncho_pilot

      college republicans are not exactly creative types. they probably got a memo with instructions and diagrams.

  5. SorosBot

    Hasn't this stupid stunt been performed often by dumbass entitled racist white asshole college Republicans since at least the mid-90s?

    1. PalinzADummy

      They're not exactly original thinkers, nor creative in any way. They tend to take an idea, usually from lefties, and then flog it to a tired, cliched, and agonizing death slowly over the decades.

    2. GOPCrusher

      It's easy to be outraged over Affirmative Action when you've never been affected by it, because you've never had to actually go out and get a job.

    1. Tommmcattt

      Asians can barter whatever they want with me and get "it" free.

      I've been working this way for the cause of freedom and equality for a long, long, time.

      You're welcome, America.

  6. justkillmenow

    Isn't affirmative action about access? If they really want to tell the story then white guys shouldn't be allowed to have any of the tasty baked goods. Chances are those guys are too fat already.

  7. BaldarTFlagass

    "UC Berkeley College Republicans (newsflash: they have those!)"

    I don't believe it. I'm sure it's some kind of hip-ironic performance art group or something, kinda like how Talking Heads got started.

    1. PalinzADummy

      There's not a whole *lot* of them, or anything, but they exist. Mean, spiteful, hateful, unpleasant, attentionwhoring, addled little shits.

      1. poncho_pilot

        i think it's funny that they go to schools that are, well, liberal and then whine and moan about how liberal they are. well, not really funny. what's the word? dumb? i think that's it.

        1. PalinzADummy

          Where else could they attentionwhore as successfully? If they hung out with their own, they'd be lost in a sea of stupid attentionwhoring addled sluttage. Here, they get all the attention.

          1. poncho_pilot

            fair enough. so you think it's like a small pond/big fish kind of thing? but replace fish with "grain of sand" and pond with "vaseline".

          2. PalinzADummy

            I'm not sure I'd put it in such excruciatingly painful terms (since I know that by "vaseline" you mean "lube," and by "grain of sand," you mean "pubic hair that gets caught INSIDE her thereby rubbing her raw and ending your boner"), but, essentially, yes.

          3. poncho_pilot

            well i meant lube yes. and i really meant sand.

            don't have sex on beaches no matter movies tell you is romantic.

          4. PalinzADummy

            Yeah, I learned that from some late-night full-moon beachside fucking in my profitless yoof. Looks great, hurts like fuckall.

  8. SayItWithWookies

    Now if only Yale and Harvard Business School had discriminatory policies against legacies and children of rich influental assholes the Dubya era never would've happened.

  9. JustPixelz

    Another factor in admissions decisions is SAT scores. The College Repubicans should adjust their prices for that too. Higher score = higher price. That would have the added benefit of discounts for their own members.

  10. CZL

    The Young Conservatives of Texas pulled this shit at UT when I was there. I gave money to my POC buddies and had them buy me cookies. Then I gave them away and asked people to please remember to vote Green or Democrat in all elections.

  11. freakishlywrong

    When did they start letting Republicans in to Berkley? Really, can we have one nice place that we don't have to share with conservatives? Something we can call our own?

      1. PalinzADummy

        Yup. That miserable prick clings on there like some fat, slugshaped alien lifeform, draining whatever is good and respectable right out of the school.

      2. BerkeleyBear

        Yep, but they stripped him of his rights to teach first year students (ie basically keep him caged for the like minded).

        I've long told people that the most rabid right wingers can be found at the heart of places like Cal. It is a badge of honor thing. Now, the good news is that, like a lot of youthful rebellions, a fair number of people get better with time/exposure to the real world (just like a fair number of the far left nuts also moderate). The bad news is that a number don't, and become hate mongers (Max Boot comes to mind).

  12. Dr_Zoidberg

    And this is exactly what is wrong with the Republicans. Instead of stating their opposition to policies in a mature, calm, well-stated manner, they go for the cheap shots designed to stir up trouble.

    Idiots.

    1. Oblios_Cap

      I sat in a waiting room at a surgeon's office for 6and a half hours being subjected to FAUX "News". Christ, what a bunch of whiny-assed titty babies.

      I think I lost at least 30 IQ points.

      1. PalinzADummy

        But why didn't you say something? I'll admit, I only started recently myself, but I now make it a policy to ask any business to change the channel. If they refuse, I tell them politely that I cannot give them my business any more. (Only one has refused so far.)

          1. PalinzADummy

            Oh god I am SO sorry! Foolish of me to have made the assumption.

            That's the kind of thing that just makes me want to pull out an AK-47 and let fly.

  13. anniegetyerfun

    It is no more racist than giving an individual an advantage in college admissions based solely on their race (or) gender.

    Yes, show me where this happens, and I'll buy the lot of your fucking cupcakes. Show me where a college student has EVER been admitted to a college SOLELY on the basis of race or gender. Please.

  14. FakaktaSouth

    This is so stupid. Shouldn't they just make more muffins that are only FOR black people, instead of making the prices different? Cause I didn't get a girl discount with my diploma, I just got to be there cause I had a vagina. Right? Stupid racists can't even make their points correctly.

      1. FakaktaSouth

        Dude, you know this. Specially if there's a sweet bouncy rack to go with – talk to your girl…I didn't get the deal I got by keeping these things to myself…

  15. Goonemeritus

    Only a true evil genius could turn something as wholesome and wonderful as a cupcake into a vehicle for hate speech.

    1. 102415

      Then you didn't see the Drunken Negro cookie at the now closed down NYC bakery that was produced the day after Obama won the election.
      No, I won't provide a link to The Villager photo.

  16. Chichikovovich

    These Republicans – so behind the times. I was reading the same crap in the 80s and it didn't make sense then. OK, get a clue, whiners: a) Today (not 30 years ago, today) the top schools would be 75% female if the admissions offices didn't put their thumbs heavily on the scale in order to admit enough men to get a 50% gender balance. b) At most schools, but especially the top California schools, whites benefit significantly from affirmative action at the cost of Asians.

    So you better adjust your prices a bit: Asians are at the top, and being a woman college applicant hurts relative to being a man. Now you may feel that is unfair too – more power to you. But lose the crybaby tone of poor oppressed white guy please. If it were not for affirmative action, some Asian woman currently at Irvine would have gotten into Berkeley and you'd be at Cal State Chico.

    1. SorosBot

      But the conservatives know that gender-based admissions hurt men, because having a penis magically makes you smarter while a vagina makes one good at cooking and cleaning but not at anything brainy.

      1. PalinzADummy

        Just like having teh white skin magically makes you able to make speeches without a teleprompter, while … etc.

          1. PalinzADummy

            Hey, I didn't say *I* held that ret@rded belief. It's the teabaggers that are making all the teleprompter comments.

      1. PalinzADummy

        That's what some of the SW guys at this one company told me. Dumbasses ended up getting bought out by Peachtree, so much for their good pot.

    2. Diabeetis

      I was just about to say the same thing: it would have been more realistic if these idiots charged Asians the most.

  17. Doktor Zoom

    Oh, this is so very, very modern and original…except that rightwing douchebags were doing this in the 80s and 90s, too.

    Hope these guys wore their parachute pants!

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      I'm sure they have some kind of sliding scale, like they did back in the slave days-octoroons, quadroons, mustees, all that kind of racist bullshit. Lucky for them Tiger Woods went to Stanford and not Berkely, or their little heads would have exploded at the CaBlInAsian thing.

      1. rahelio

        Or like in South Africa where they had a "brown paper bag" test, here they just hold up a cupcake to the black kid's face. "if your skin is darker than this chocolate frosting, you get $.25 off!"

        1. genxr

          My macaroon is white on the left side and black on the right side. Not like his, which is black on the left side.

    1. Not_So_Much

      Indeed. But we vanilla men would appreciate it if you'd perpetuate the myth that the chocolate are not bigger! Thanks for your support.

        1. Not_So_Much

          Sweet (see what I did there?)!

          That sounds waayy better than 'maneuverable', or 'cute in its own way'…

    1. zappadoo76

      Your black maid would get cupcakes for free, since blacks only pay 25 cents, and women get a 25 cent discount. Just tell your maid to get four cupcakes. Let her keep one of them, and give me one as a tip for having the idea. You get the other two. This problem will be on your LSAT exam.

    2. prommie

      Oh, thats like when you incorporate a business with your wife as majority shareholder so you can bid on those minority set-aside contracts, the Republicans would have no problem with that, whatsoever.

  18. BaldarTFlagass

    Why do these guys have to be such douches in college? I mean, there's plenty of time for them to become total unreconstructed dickheads once they graduate.

    1. HistoriCat

      And do they still wear those idiotic straw hats? Because that just makes me want to punch them in the nuts.

        1. HistoriCat

          Snake Oil Salesman of course. Although I keep thinking of the Music Man episode of the Simpsons … same kind of sliminess I suppose.

    2. Rotundo_

      Because a higher education allows them to be exposed to new ideas and critical thinking. And then shit all over them and the people with them and act like the entitled selfish rubes their parents raised them to be. Most of these dweebs are destined for work with daddy in the family business or some other cozy little gig that doesn't require them to think or work too much for a nice check and a healthy slice of the pie. They are legacy types just like Dubya, only on a lower evolutionary glidepath heading downward.

          1. PalinzADummy

            What an enthusiastic fellow! If I didn't know better, I'd suspicion as you might have some experience with these two lovely ladies.

    1. rahelio

      Turns out that "post-racial" didn't mean America had gotten rid of all its racists, just that white people could cared even less about racism than they did before.

  19. SheriffRoscoe

    Openly admitting that your publicity stunt is inherently racist, in order to deflect criticism that it is racist. Clever!

    1. prommie

      Thats the hedonic value adjustment! The same thing that says there is no inflation happening, because we just enjoy these new ipads soooo much that they are actually worth more than the old ones, and therefore are worth more, and therefore, cost less, rather than more, compared to how orgasmic they make us feel.

        1. PalinzADummy

          Holy shit, did I channel you? I can't believe this. I'm letting my comment stand as a humiliating reminder to myself to READ THE FUCKING THREAD FIRST. Thank you. (runs away, sniveling)

  20. prommie

    David Horowitz is still alive? This is vintage Horowitz idiocy. What is he doing now, wandering from campus to campus and just screetching about the liberal oppression of conservatives in the quad in front of the Library, like Brother Jed Smock?

  21. Doktor Zoom

    Following the bake sale, the College Republicans marched to the baseball field, occupied third base, and announced "We hit a triple!!!"

  22. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Why don't they make it interesting. Any one who's parents work at a hedge fund or who make over a million dollars, pay only 15% of the price. Those with middle class parents pay full price. Those who are poor or a minority would pay a discount, but they won't be allowed anywhere near campus. That seems a little more like reality.

    1. Doktor Zoom

      Black students are allowed to purchase cupcakes, but they will be watched very closely any time they are near the table, and as they leave, will be asked to show their receipt.

      1. PalinzADummy

        That's definitely MUCH more like reality as I know it! One of my partner's kids (now grown) looks totally white to me, except he has nappy hair. You would not believe the difference between how HE was treated and the younger kid (who has straight hair but darker skin colour, like mine) was treated when shopping in dept stores. Infuriating.

    2. SexySmurf

      If their parents work at a hedge fund or who make over a million dollars, the government would probably pay for the cupcake.

    3. SorosBot

      The poor and the middle class have a discount, but in exchange for a five- or six-figure debt once they graduate. And probably no job from which to earn money to pay it.

    4. WABishop

      How about basing it on the percent of your tuition, fees and living expenses that were paid by some other party, like your parents? Merit-based scholarships and student loans not included.

  23. hfpw

    So, find a Native American woman, she gets free cakes, she 'buys' all the cakes and distributes them to everyone else – thus a) proving that there are advantages to affirmative action and b) bankrupting the campus republican group. It's a win-win!
    Of course the main reason they are selling for free to native american women is most likely because there are none on campus.

  24. Ducksworthy

    We agree that the event is inherently racist, but that is the point. It's fortunate that the only people who have ever experienced racism are young white me and only to the extent that it mildly hurt their feelings which felt a lot like how they imagine the fire hoses and dogs felt to their negro predecessors or whatever. Scum.

    1. genxr

      Don't forget the murder and wholesale riots and burning down entire neighborhoods because some kid looked at a white woman the wrong way. That feels a lot like hurt feelings.

      Funny how these same people want to hold all muslims responsible for 9/11 but don't want all white southerners held responsible for decades of evil perpetrated and condoned by all of them.

      Someone recently told me to get over, that "we (the south) got rid of separate drinking fountains a long time ago." I had to tell him that no you didn't, the federal government did, over the South's loud and violent objections.

    1. PalinzADummy

      Only if you're white. If you're black, you get a free fire hose in the face and a pack of snarling dogs and cops with truncheons who will beat the shit out of you if you try to eat that cake.

  25. orygoon

    Someone should point out to the little fuckers that they stole every one of those cupcakes from the Native Americans, and look at who gets all the money?

  26. Lascauxcaveman

    What I'm getting here are the delicious chocolate cupcakes are cheaper than the boring vanilla ones. I'm good with this.

  27. Blueb4sunrise

    Where in the GOP maths does this fit in with the outrage over the Justice Dept. spending $16 for muffins, coffee and fruit?

    1. finallyhappy

      I once paid $15 for a bagel and coffee at a Los Angeles hotel- 1 bagel, some eh cream cheese and a cup of coffee. Why isn't someone investigating that!!!

    1. Rotundo_

      A good hickory axe handle is a handy thing, you don't really want the head, just the handle, lighter and more aerodynamically shaped than a baseball bat, a good reach and with sufficient mass to let the bastards know you mean business. Maple works well too, a bit more dense and weighty, but workable as an alternate.

    2. PalinzADummy

      It wasn't that long ago that some SFPD cop destroyed Dolores Huerta's spleen with a well-aimed baton blow. These protestors are not getting ANYthing like what we used to get back when. It's not great being pepper-sprayed, but it's much worse losing your spleen from a violent beating.

  28. Not_So_Much

    This 'upheaval' is making me upheave.

    Can we just agree that college republican leadership (likely) have significant sexual identification issues and ignore them?

    1. Fare la Volpe

      Whenever my school's LGBT club was planning our end-of-the-year mixer, we always made a point to send out the first invitation to the campus Republicans. Guaranteed a good turnout.

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      Way back when, in 1975, when I was 16 and didn't really know shit, I was accepted at Pepperdine; between scholarship and parents, it was gonna be a free ride. And hey, college at Malibu? I mean, it's all Beach Boys all the time on the Muzak, right? Ended up blowing it off for a variety of reasons, but occasionally wonder what kind of horrible turn I might have made had I attended. Of course, I probably would have stoned/flunked myself right out during the first semester.

  29. proudgrampa

    Frankly, i am not surprised that this came out of Berkeley. My impression is that it has become somewhat elitist over the years.

    As I say, just an impression.

  30. Neoyorquino

    Oh, let them have their cupcakes. They need some consolation. What are the odds that any of the UC Berkeley College Republicans have gotten laid by their fellow co-eds this semester?

    1. PalinzADummy

      Zero. Zilch. Zip. Nada. Nought.

      The closest they've ever gotten to a cunt is being called one by everyone who knows them.

  31. BaldarTFlagass

    What are they going to do with the proceeds? Rent an F-150 and a James Byrd lookalike actor for a "Jasper Texas Reenactment" for the homecoming parade?

    1. PalinzADummy

      Given the minuscule likelihood that any of them ever got laid, more likely they'll either try to spend it on a prostitute, or beer, to drown their sorrows in.

      Since most prostitutes charge at least enough for one crack rock, and they're not likely to raise THAT much, my money's on beer.

  32. genxr

    It's a fair point, and there's only one way to make it right. We'll have to brutally oppress Republicans, lynching and murdering them at will, for, say, the next 80 years. Then we give them a discount on cupcakes.

      1. genxr

        One thing we can learn from the South: If you go straight to beating and lynching and shooting and burning down neighborhoods, there's really no need to threaten anyone.

    1. glamourdammerung

      Going to need some construction cranes and some good chain because they got a lot of fatties and rope just can not handle that kind of weight.

  33. Wonderthing

    For too long white people have been forced to take jobs that are decent and reasonably paid. They have settled into communities with a more than adequate police force, fire department and sanitation disposal company. Their children are cruelly driven in Mercedes SUVs to classrooms with teachers that care about them. It's time we stood up and looked down on the bottom class, and said, we want more of the same and you guys should cough up the bucks. As in NOW.

    1. Chet Kincaid

      The great thing about American racism is that we've gotten most white people to identify with the small percentage of white people who actually live like that. The morons even think that most of the poor are brown, and most browns are poor! And lots of browns think all white people are rich, too, but even if it were true, there's not a goddamned thing they can do about it. The revolution practically counters itself!!

    1. BaldarTFlagass

      I dunno, Chet. Seems like most of the 'big' stories are handled by Ken, and are usually written in a manner that has me being put on hold when I call the suicide hotline. Easing into the week with the "child's play" material may be better for the group mental health here.

    2. Geminisunmars

      The money behind Christie is the fast food industry. They want that Michelle Obamer out of there before she can ruin them totally.

    3. prommie

      He really is such a big fat fuck, its ludicrous. He wears his pants at the level of his underarms, becuse his stomach extends up to his 4th chin. And a mean, nasty, vengeful, crude, bombastic, angry angry narcissist. He's just fucking horrible in all ways. Cronied-up, corrupt, mean as a snake.

      1. AJWjr.

        He is what they aspire to, because you know if he was from or in a lower social caste, he'd be in that Hoveround right next to them.

    4. Rotundo_

      Isn't that last word misspelled? Big Fat White Dope makes sense, but Hope? Not so much. Besides which the fat jokes would cause him to keel anyhow. I can see the headlines now: The Incredulous Bulk vs. Barry, any hack could riff on this for weeks and not run out of material. Sorta like Christie's pants! Oh! I keed, I keed! They'll have to remodel all the toilets in the whitehouse to fit Christie's ass, yep, anyone could just go on and on and on and on………

      1. PalinzADummy

        Damn, you're good at this. Is it wrong of me to admit I LOLed loud enough to scare one of the cats right out of my crotch (where she was sleeping peacefully)?

  34. Monsieur_Grumpe

    This reminds me of a time where I was admiring a bumper on a rusty vehicle that was festooned with rabid right wing stickers. While reading them and chuckling the apparent owner came up to me and asked if the stickers offended me. I said “Not really, is that what you are trying to do?” He replied “Yes.”
    I responded” Well, I always said, everyone should have a hobby.” He seemed to be puzzled by this and drove off without saying anything else. This bake sale is not so much an attempt to make a point; they just like being offensive.

  35. Flat_Earther

    If Stanford Student, Dread Scott, was to travel to Berkeley and attempt to purchase a cupcake would he be returned to Stanford without his purchase (nor any for his wife and two kids) since he could not rightfully claim to be a student at a public institution?

      1. Flat_Earther

        Taney would clearly see that denying the purchase of cupcakes would clearly negate Brown’s attempt at affirmative action.

  36. Mahousu

    You have to understand, for a Republican to attend Berkeley, he [no point in "he or she"] has to be obnoxious, or clueless, or (preferably) both.

    In other words, an average Republican.

  37. L188188

    There is nothing as irritating as a puerile, sniveling, self-entitled "college republican". Think James O'Keefe or these Berkeley wankers and try to hold your gorge down.

  38. imissopus

    Meh. I seem to recall someone bringing to light that James O'Keefe was involved in one of these in his wild and crazy Rutgers days, which pretty much says it all.

  39. rickmaci

    They've had their panties in a twist since they found out their snowbilly sweetheart had a history of going all Mandingo fevery white on Rice and so the only way to soothe their poofter souls was to bake twinkies or something. Stay in the closet boys, much safer world for you in there. Have fun with yourself in the dark.

  40. Fare la Volpe

    It must be so tough being a rich, white, heterosexual male in America.

    Excuse me while I go get fired from my job for talking openly about my partner, and then get refused from the blood mobile because I've seen another man's penis in the past 20 years.

  41. jus_wonderin

    “It is no more racist than giving an individual an advantage in college admissions based solely on their race (or) gender.”

    In other words, my Daddy's money talks and that is all that matters.

  42. ragnarok4msm

    My question is just what have the democrat members of the Congresssional Black Caucus done to improve the quality of life of constituents in their predominantly black districts?

    When was the last time any one of them spoke out about:
    Saggy pants, gold teeth, fake gold chains, wearing monogrammed sports hoodies, gangsta mentality, wearing hats with sales tags off to one side, having babies without supporting them, speaking ebonics, calling each other ni@@a, unprotected sex with multiple partners, calling women 'hoes', heffers, and bi-tches.

    And they won't speak out. When you ask them about these things, they tell the world, "it's a black thing, you wouldn't understand". Of course we can't understand, they can't speak English half the time.

    If anyone needs proof of the disparity between their socialist democrat leaders, look how well their leaders dress versus their constituents. Black leaders have perfected the socialist agenda for their race down to just two classes: the rich, privilaged, few and the poor uneducated masses. When was the last time a member of the black caucus sought legislation to build a black college in any one of their districts?

    Black leaders claim the republicans and the Tea Party are the enemy. Yet, they've built their fortune on the same party that supported slavery in the Civil War and attempted to defeat the Civil Rights Act of 1964. How ironic.

    If their looking for Uncle Toms in the GOP, they're looking in the wrong place. Just look in the mirror. Their hooking their own people on EBT's. It keeps their votes secured.

    Oh, and while they politcally correct the rest of us preferring to call themselves African-American, they envoke their ignorance of the fact their own race uses the terms:

    Congressional BLACK Caucus,
    National Association of the Advancement of COLORED PEOPLE,
    and calling each other NI@@ER.

    Instead of marching against discrimination from other races as they claim, they should be marching against their own leaders minding the plantation.

    1. SorosBot

      Hey it's been a while since a Breitard came by and started spouting off openly racist bullshit. I haven't missed it; now fuck off shithead.

    2. Chichikovovich

      Hey there, lil' feller. (You don't mind if I call you "lil' feller", do you?) There isn't a single thing you've written that people here haven't seen a hundred times from more accomplished racist trolls than you. Your sole claim to originality is your uncommonly poor spelling. (Three 's' 'es in "Congresssional" was an imaginative touch, and "privilaged" is one I've never seen before.)

      But I believe that criticism should be constructive. You should be aware that it detracts from the effect of a message meant to mock poor African-Americans for purportedly poor English if it is overflowing with obvious spelling mistakes and atrocious grammar. So spend some time revisiting your grade school grammar and spelling books, and pay special attention to the distinction between "they're" and "their", which is frankly a pretty basic one. So bone up a bit and I'm sure with a bit of work you'll be able to offend people and make them angry, rather than make them laugh at you and regard you as pathetic. Which is what they do now.

      You know I'm just telling you this because I care. Good luck lil' feller.

      1. SorosBot

        I like how he thinks that Congressmen should seek to set up "a black college". Someone doesn't seem to know that, despite the best efforts of assholes like him, segregation has been outlawed and there are no "black college" anymore; there's a reason people the former black colleges are now called "HISTORICALLY black colleges" instead; they're just colleges now, that once served a very important purpose for the victims of segregation.

        1. Chichikovovich

          Ah, good point. I wrote too quickly. In addition to the even-worse-than-usual spelling, that bit about "no black colleges in the district" was also completely new to me. Too dumb even for most of the racist trolls.

          Sorry, lil' feller: I should have given you a bit more credit.

      2. ragnarok4msm

        I got me all A's in spelling. It's the COPY and PASTE that I do, without reading what I copied for errors. That is my problem.LOL

    3. SexySmurf

      Saggy pants, gold teeth, fake gold chains, wearing monogrammed sports hoodies, gangsta mentality, wearing hats with sales tags off to one side, having babies without supporting them, speaking ebonics, calling each other ni@@a, unprotected sex with multiple partners, calling women 'hoes', heffers, and bi-tches.

      You need to stop watching so many rap videos and go actually meet a real black person.

      And while we're on the subject, what is up with those videos that say "To be continued…" but they're never continued. I've been waiting 15 years for the second part of "California Love."

      1. Fare la Volpe

        Can someone please explain to me how "saggy pants" (wtf? are we in 1993?) have systematically held the black man back?

        1. SorosBot

          Along with "fake gold chains", I guess we're bank in the disco years now. And I've certainly never seen a white suburban teen wearing saggy pants, no not ever.

          Is "wearing hats with sales tags off to one side" a stereotype now? I have never heard that before.

      2. mumbly_joe

        This. I live in El Barrio, and there were at least three places in there where I just stopped and thought ot myself, what the everloving fuck is this cracker on about?

        1. SexySmurf

          I'm afraid you wrecked yourself. "Check Yo Self" was the sequel to "It Was A Good Day." "California Love" was the Pac and Dre video inspired by Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome (filmed on the actual set). It ends with Pac waking up from a dream.

          I'm white and grew up in the 90s so I know everything about rap.

    4. CapnFatback

      When was the last time any one of them spoke out about:
      Saggy pants, gold teeth, fake gold chains, wearing monogrammed sports hoodies, gangsta mentality, wearing hats with sales tags off to one side, having babies without supporting them, speaking ebonics, calling each other ni@@a, unprotected sex with multiple partners, calling women 'hoes', heffers, and bi-tches.

      Oh, hey, I know this! These are lyrics to the Teabagger version of "We Didn't Start the Fire." Only in their version, they DO claim to have started the fire, in the shape of a cross, on their black neighbor's lawn.

    5. GOPCrusher

      Wow. The "Democratic Plantation" meme?
      Maybe you should take this to your nearest A.M.E. church and let us know how that works out for you.

          1. PalinzADummy

            Just imagine constipated old Senator Johnny McCaincient trying to take a shit. Much grunting and straining for very little in the way of results.

    6. Rotundo_

      Oh aren't we a special one! Just chock full of regurgitated racist talking points today aren't we. Well you have a great day, bless your soul, and good luck out there. Thanks for taking time out of your day to share with us, it's always good to see that the same sad talking points are still there like a pair of comfy old shoes, just waiting for the next generation of racist half wits to barf up for attention.

  43. Eve8Apples

    Dumbass College Republicans. Everyone knows brown people don't buy cupcakes from whitey – they steal them and pistol whip whitey in the process.

  44. grex1949

    If it's so difficult to be admitted to Berkley, tell me how these Young Republican fuck-tards make the cut?

    1. GeorgiaBurning

      They're admitted as a minority- not being Asian, hispanic or female. Remember, this is UC Berkeley, not the Citadel

  45. owhatever

    I wanted to participate in this much-needed protest, but had a tennis appointment at the same time with my personal trainer. So I ordered several dozen muffins from that little Jew bakery to be distributed (turned a nice profit), and rented a stretch Hummer limo to carry the costume, which was worn by my butler, Heaves. Just like when George Washington fired the first shot for freedom at the Concorde on 9/11/1777, we all must sacrifice for freedom and equality.

  46. mumbly_joe

    To be fair, with a few refinements, we could turn something like this from a trite, vaguely racist Republican idiocy into an actually apt analogy. For example, if:

    *For the past 20 years, any black person caught with baked goods was brutally murdered and had his baked goods confiscated.

    *For the past 20 years, any white person caught sharing his baked goods with a black person was probably also murdered and had his baked goods confiscated.

    *For the past 20 years, any black and white people trying to room together as inter-racial roommates were summarily murdered and had their baked goods confiscated.

    *The college republicans have, in the past few months, started coming to campus armed, because they accuse president of the university (who is the university's first black president, in this analogy) of being a secret Kenyan who wants to take away all of the white peoples' baked goods.

    See, now we're getting somewhere!

  47. Eve8Apples

    Here's the way it works in the real world:

    The latinos, women and black people work in the bakery at 5 cents per hour making cupcakes. They have no health insurance, no paid vacation, no paid sick leave and no 401(k). Because the latinos, women and black people have to work for a living, their income is taxed at 35%. The white boys then sell the cupcakes to them for $1.00+ each. Because the white boys don't have to work for a living, their capital gains are taxed at 15%. When the white boys mismanage the bakery and drive the bakery to near financial collapse, the latinos, women and black people have to bail out the white boys' bakery because they're "too big to fail." The white boys then take their bailout money and attend a tea party rally where they bitch about socialism.

  48. GeorgiaBurning

    Save this idea for the next time the Repubs need to fund a war, the proportions of payment can stay the same. How many cupcakes will it take to buy an aircraft carrier?

  49. AlaskaGrrl

    So… if a black woman comes along and buys all their little muffins, sets up a table right next to them and starts selling the goodies for $1, what would that mean? Other than the white boys are idiots?

  50. Tommy1733

    I don't think this statement, made by one of the participants, is valid: "It is no more racist than giving an individual an advantage in college admissions based solely on their race (or) gender." He is ignoring the motivation behind Affirmative Action, which, while it is based on race and gender, is not "racist" in its intent to harm any race of people. I do see their point, but to me the salient factor is what does the research reveal about whether AA is effective in its goals or not?

    This protest event removes all the background, that is to say the most important part, of AA. Instead it is pantomiming actual racist practices that are part of our nation's history, thereby propagating them.

    1. SorosBot

      It's also completely wrong, since Affirmative Action is not "giving an individual an advantage in college admissions based solely on their race (or) gender", but rather using race and gender as just two of the many factors in deciding who to admit.

      1. Tommy1733

        Well, to be fair, I am sure the process of selling a cupcake is also a highly complicated process involving many factors.

    1. anniegetyerfun

      I do believe that the good residents of Oakland should be made aware of the discounted baked goods that will be for sale on the campus. It's only a BART ride away, after all!

  51. Beck_is_Trig

    It's funny, I read this article likening teabaggers and their blind ideological fealty to the Bolsheviks but shit like this proves there is a definite differential to juxtapose. Bolsheviks were out in the open with their desire to impose dictatorship, they didn't preach democracy to the masses. These assholes on the other hand preach 'individual liberty' and 'meritocracy' while every political thought they have originates from a position of protecting and maintaing every inch of ill-gained, government conferred and protected white privilege. They know it exists and celebrate it…newsflash, teabagger-honkies, this is the reason minorities hate you….oy, I could write a book about this bullshit but it would be too venomous and therefore wouldn't be taken seriously. Either way, I hate fucking wingnuts…

  52. SaintRond

    What about that little pecker snot George W. Bush who with his mediocre grades was granted admission to Harvard under the "Legacy Program" because his father attended? There are thousands of those "Legacy" admissions at all the good Ivy League schools, and the "legacy" they're referring to comes from a time when blacks weren't even allowed in the door unless it was for food preparation or sweeping the goddamn floor.

    These college Republicans appear to have a subconscious desire to have someone kick them in the teeth. I knew they were all perverts.

  53. GregComlish

    The only reason there are still lots of white people left on most campuses is because of "diversity". The only reason there are still lots of men left on most campuses is because of "diversity". If colleges went by academic qualification alone, then Berkeley would be almost 85% Asian with the rest mostly going to Jews. And at least 2/3 of the student body would be women.

    The reason white men aren't achieving parity isn't because of diversity requirements. It's because they spend all their time playing XBOX and jerking off to internet porn. And along comes a policy that could bail their under-performing asses out but the conservative movement has their heads are so far up their racist/sexist asses they can't even tell. They just assume that of course all the white men are better than everybody else. Fucking morons.

    1. ProudLibunatic

      So true, GC.
      When my daughter graduated from UCSD a few years ago, she noticed that a lot of the boys took 5 years to graduate, and seemed to be majoring in beer-pong and video-games.

  54. widget2011

    Sounds like typical Batman philosophy, always running arourd protecting the oligarchs (he himself being an oligarch) against those upstart embecile underclass trying to break out of the lower classes. Since they must rob & steal shit to break out of the poverty, good ole Batman must stop them, because the oligarchs (who robbed and stole from the lower classes) to amass their tremendous fortunes must be protected.

    BTW Batman = Asshole!

    1. GregComlish

      WTF. The way you talk about Batman you'd think he was Mitt Romney or something, fighting the redistribution of wealth with his Magic Mormon underwear.

        1. widget2011

          No, but I'm pretty sure Robin has! BTW, I liked the Saturday Night Live animated series in the 80's/90's called Ace & Gary a whole lot more than Batman & Robin, and I do believe that that was the characters were based on that "cartoon". Which brings me to another point. Why is it that every "Batman" feature film movie neglects to even mention Robin's existence? Riddle me that Zhubajai? My theory is that the "Robin" character made the "Batman" character way "too gay".

  55. Redhead

    But how much do they charge gay people? Or do gay people not get to buy any, because the campus Republicans refuse to recognize them as people?

  56. caitifty

    So is anyone planning to turn up with fire hoses and dogs to drive them off the campus? You know, so they can really get with the experience of being an oppressed minority.

  57. snoopyfan2010

    Gosh, if these people want to claim that they are being discriminated against, I hope God does them the favor and makes it happen.

  58. rambone

    Hmmm . . . One Andrew Breitbart/Matt Drudge for eight Beyonces/Ciaras/Halle Berrys/ Mariah Careys (is she a negress???) ?

    Works for me!

    Someone point me in the general direction of the nearest gay bar!

  59. wrksuxcreatbeer

    Ah this ain't news. UC Berk has always been full of these smug white "irony dweebs for anything that keeps my parents in bucks and my ass off the job hunt for a few years while I network my way to a life convincing other people to pay me for bullshitting them". Wow. Long quote, eh?

  60. Negropolis

    You remember that affirmative action white dudes had, oh, for the first few hundred years of our existence, right? Also, why don't you guys complain about points given on applications for legacy students?

  61. superdave

    If Berkeley is any indication, us Asians should be worth the most!

    As an Asian, male, Berkeley-alum, I'm gonna say I'm worth 10 BILLION DOLLARS!

  62. anniegetyerfun

    I went to Mt Holyoke, so our "College Conservative Coalition" was all female, and they were still fantastic douchenozzles. They actually held a "conservative awareness month" where they wore pearls and twin sets every day, and walked around the student center asking others to wear their blue ribbon of awareness. And then they were MAD that they were being DISCRIMINATED AGAINST when no one wanted to pin that fucking thing on their sweatshirt.

    90% of them turned out to be total dykes.

  63. Chichikovovich

    Thanks – that's a useful reference. Though the article is a bit misleading because it focuses on admissions directors who admit favoring men. That's something that many admissions directors are going to be reluctant to admit, because the legal situation is so unclear. Nobody knows how courts are going to rule on a given process. I know many people in admissions offices and every one of them reports – off the record – needing an effort to get enough men into a class. (It would be a social disaster, not to mention a recruiting catastrophe, if a co-ed university had a wildly skewed gender balance.) So I think the actual numbers are much higher than this story reflects.

  64. One_who_wanders

    Oh I agree with you about the actual numbers being much higher. I work in Higher Ed and especially among Liberal Arts colleges the pro-male bias is almost universal. Sometimes they add men’s sports so they can recruit athletes more easily and tell themselves that the reason they are admitting men with lower scores is because they are athletes.
