Alaskan Idiot: Obama Is Of ‘Mulatto Race,’ Thus Not Eligible For Presidency

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Burning the midnight oil, moving the Computer Mouse over the Online.Mr. Gordon Warren Epperly — of the PO Box 34358, Juneau, Alaska Epperlies — can expect a lengthy and almost certainly inappropriate phone call from pearlescent loony Orly Taitz, and maybe, too, an honorary DDS/JD she will print on discontinued “Certificate of Participation” cardstock from the Office Depot. What in blazes for, you may ask. It’s because Epperly is really pushing the envelope on goofball schemes to invalidate Kenyan interloper Barack Obama’s entire presidency/personhood, using our liberal activist court system, naturally. Whereas Dr. Orly Taitz, Esquire, settled for making up some nonsense about Obama not being born on real American soil to real American parents, Epperly is straight-up skipping that bit of politesse, to crow in the general direction of the Alaska State Division of Elections, “BUNK THAT! THAT PRESIDENT IS NOT WHITE, Y’ALL!!!”

Epperly is trying to prevent Obama from appearing on the ballot in Alaska, because of the Constitution, a sacred and unalterable document which, in his estimation, only gave “Negroes” and “mulattos” civil rights, not political rights:

Barack Hussein Obama II is not a “natural born Citizen” of the United States

As stated above, for an Individual to be a Candidate for the Office of President of the United States, the Candidate must meet the qualifications as set forth in the United States Constitution and one of those qualifications is that the Candidate shall be a “natural born Citizen” of the United States. As Barack Hussein Obama II is of the “Mulatto” race, his status of citizenship is founded upon the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Before the [purported] ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the race of “Negro” or “Mulatto” had no standing to be citizens of the United States under the United States Constitution. /1

As the Fourteenth Amendment is only a grant of “Civil Rights” and not a grant of “Political Rights,” Barack Hussein Obama II does not have any “Political Rights” under any provision of the United States Constitution to hold any Public Office of the United States government. Furthermore, there is considerable debate within the enclosed supporting documents that shows Barack Hussein Obama II was not born on the soil of the United States and that he was not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States at the time of his birth. If this is true, it would appear that Barack Hussein Obama II may not only be in want of having the status of being a “natural born Citizen,” but he may not even be a “citizen of the United States.” Being absent of proper status of Citizenship, Barack Hussein Obama II, nor his Delegates, have the qualifications to appear on the Election Ballots for the State of Alaska.

This goes on for ten pages, folks, which is about ten pages past our attention span. So help us out, would-be Orly Taitzes. Are the rest of the arguments in Epperly’s filing as totally impregnable as this one? More importantly, was the Fourteenth Amendment only purportedly ratified and how is this going to screw up the numbering on all the following amendments (if any of them are even valid)?

      Why, that racist just to suggest that.
      Always playing the race card.

  • GunToting[Redacted]

    I automatically assumed that the "Alaskan Idiot" in question was Sarah Palin. I'm somewhat disappointed.

    • prommie

      Apparently Alaska has many.

    • Not_So_Much

      Any story/sentence that includes her name invariably ends in disappointment.

    • GOPCrusher

      Considering the number of people that live in Alaska, and the Idiot/Population ratio, I also made the assumption that Sarah was the lone Idiot.

    Holy shit, the president is part negro? Who knew? This changes everything.

    We don't have to listen to this guy, because Lincoln illegally annexed Alaska. Therefore, all the folks there are Russians.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      Not only that, Lincoln did it from the grave, in 1867. Talk about illegal.

      • Egregious644

        Well, there you go then. No wonder Andrew Johnson was impeached! How dare he impersonate Abraham Lincoln making an illegal annexation!

    Also, too, I think we should all send this nice man a postal card to thank him for pointing this out.

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      I think we need to locate some "gone postal" cards.

  • Native_of_SL_UT

    Maybe we could compromise and declare that Obama is only 3/5ths of a President.
    Oh wait, he's only half negro so if my math is correct, that would make him 4/5ths of a President.

    • Mahousu

      That still makes him more than twice what W. was.

    • revmatty

      7/10ths, actually.

    • sewollef

      Well ok then… if Mr Obama is only 70% president, does that mean that only 70% of your vote goes to him? And if that's true, then who gets the the other 30%?

      Or…. or, is it that you can only vote for Mr Obama 70% of the time? And if that's true…. then who does the other 30% of the time belong too?

      See where I'm going with this?

      No? Damn…. I was hoping someone could explain all this to the mathematically-challenged.

  • prommie

    Noone uses that old term "mulatto" anymore. The polite term, according to Rush Limbaugh, is "halfrican."

    • starfanglednut

      He really says that? Ugh.

  • WinterOuthouse

    What the Fuck is he talking about?

    • James Michael Curley

      From the passage of the 13th and 14th amendment Jim Crow laws were argued to be valid because those amendments did not address voting/political rights. This argument was be put forward by Dixiecrats in 1965 when the Voting Rights Act was being voted on in Congress.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I bet I know what the tailgate of this guy's pickup truck looks like.

  • Baconzgood

    Can he do this? He's from Alaska and Alaska wasn't a state in 1789 when the constitution was ratified.

    Check mate racist loon!

    • emmelemm


    • Chichikovovich

      In fact, it belonged to Russia, where the slaves were white! So I guess he'd better report to the market right away.

      • Dashboard Buddha

        Too stupid to provide useful labor. I'm thinking Soylent Green.

      • Chichikovovich

        Addendum: Aw crap. Alexander II freed the serfs in 1861, six years before Alaska was annexed by the US. If only he could have held off for a decade or so.

        (But then, if a 100% American president's slave-freeing is no good, why should some vodka-swilling foreigner's be any better? Somebody should slap this guy in chains just in case. Pending the outcome of litigation. Which will surely be completed in 15-20 years, tops.)

  • Lucidamente1

    And besides, he's only 3/5 of a person.

    • Maman

      so we need an additional 2/5 of a President?

      • Chichikovovich

        No way are we bringing Bush back into the White House!

  • UW8316154

    I'm at work. Will someone please facebook this guy and report back? Maybe check out his AOL account, if there is still such a thing.

  • SorosBot

    Birthers, you're not supposed to admit that all your conspiracy mongering is just because Obama's black; you're doing it wrong.

  • Generation[redacted]

    Epperly is really pushing the envelope on goofball schemes to invalidate Kenyan interloper Barack Obama’s entire presidency/personhood

    Eu contraire, this is the first truly honest court filing of the birthers' objection to Obama's presidency.

    Governor Palin is ineligible, too, owing to her vagina-bearing status?

      It's just snobbery….

    • Swampgas_Man

      All the "news" is about the Oscars and Angelina Jolie's legs today, so this snuck in by default.

  • SorosBot

    The Constitution also refers to both the President and Vice President as "he" at several points. So in 2008 did this racist ass sue to get Palin off the ballot?

    • northernbassist

      No. He decided to wait a couple of years and go after Lisa Murkowski in 2010, by claiming that, and I quote:

      "–Lisa Murkowski is not qualified for the Office of U.S. Senator as she is not a citizen of the United States under Article I of the Constitution of the United States.

      Enclosed is a "Proclamation" declaring the political privileges of candidates to hold public offices of the United States. The "Proclamation" shows that U.S. Congress has never made provisions in the U.S. Constitution for women or non-white citizens to hold public offices."

      I grew up in Juneau and this guy's name is familiar to me–that name was associated with stables, so perhaps the horseshit doesn't fall far from the horse's ass, or something.

    Wow, way to be ahead of the curve with a trend that was 4 years too late. Next thing you know he'll be telling us that we should watch this show "Friends" and that Jennifer Aniston could be, you know, married to a big star.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      "There's this really funny show about a bunch of Jews in New York you should check out, I think it's called "Steinberg" or something…"

    • prommie

      Being of an older generation, I didn't have "Friends." In my day, we all wore onions on our belts and watched "Thirty-Something," which, believe it or not, was set in Philadelphia.

      • Chichikovovich

        Ah, yes, Thirty-Something. When the my generation were little kids, the big kids said "Never trust anyone over thirty!" Then in our twenties we watched Thirty-Something and that same generation taught us why.

  • edgydrifter

    By Epperly's own peculiar logic, nobody gets to hold any office or even vote, because Political Rights aren't mentioned at all in the Constitution.

    • Ramon X

      Just what are political rights anyway?

      I forget who said it (Bill Maher?), but someone said these racists have actually grown up. They call O'Dawg all these different scary names because there's one they can't use just sticking in the back of their throat. It starts with "N," ends with "R," and is NOT "Nation Builder."

    • GOPCrusher

      Oh that is so 2000. Today's hip Klansman go full tilt racist and then get shouty and ragey for someone pointing out their racism.

  • chicken_thief

    Like Obama gives a fuck about being on the ballot in AK anyway. The handful of his supporters up there can easily write his name in. This sort of like my mom telling me that she isn't going to give me that $5 a week allowance that she gave me back in '71 anymore.

    I bet Orly got all hot and bothered when she heard about this. I sense wedding bells in the future.

  • Mahousu

    OK, I read the whole thing. His main argument boils down to the fact that Dred Scott was never overturned. Seriously.

    He also has the usual birther nonsense, and some stuff about how he doesn't like the certification of nomination that the DNC submitted in 2008, but the main argument is that Dred Scott was only partially voided by the 14th Amendment because, you know, black people.

      He got the idea from his annual filing against the IRS, claiming that Pollock v. Farmers' was "only partially voided."

  • MissTaken

    Seriously, can someone explain the difference between "Civil Rights" and "Political Rights"?

    I have a suspicion that according to this drippy dick juice that me being a vagina-carrier negates my right to vote (despite the purported ratification of the 19th Amendment).

    • prommie

      Missy, your participation in the political process is limited to withholding the vagina from your man, if he does something you disagree with.

            …nah I can't resist it; you still get one.

    • Chichikovovich

      We talked about this a bit on a thread from this weekend. Basically, the distinction is one pulled out of the deepest, darkest regions of the plaintiff's ass. "The 14th amendment guarantees civil rights? AHA! So then it doesn't guarantee higgle-piggle rights, among which rights include running for president!"
