ACTIVIST JUDGES  1:35 am March 1, 2012

Montana’s Top Federal Judge Says Obama’s Mom Screwed Dogs

by Wonkette Jr.

Lost in your eyes.The top federal judge in Montana simply does not care for America’s federal president, Barack Obama. That’s why he had no choice but to send a racist email that suggests Barack Obama is black because his white mother was impregnated by a … dog. A black dog, we guess? “The only reason I can explain it to you is I am not a fan of our president,” Bush-nominated federal judge Richard Cebull said instead of apologizing.

While local GOP public officials are primarily known for forwarding stupid racist emails about the president because of the sin of his race, most stick to the common redneck themes of watermelons and monkeys and African tribes.

Judge Cebull, however, is a maverick. His racist email adds canines to the mix, literally:

“A little boy said to his mother, ‘Mommy, how come I’m black and you’re white?’ His mother replied, ‘Don’t even go there Barack! From what I can remember about that party, you’re lucky you don’t bark!’ ”

It’s funny, you see, because black people are animals! Luckily, Montana’s top federal judge explained that he is not at all racist. He simply does not care for the president, and it has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that Barack Obama was made from the semen of a dog.

“The only reason I can explain it to you is I am not a fan of our president, but this goes beyond not being a fan,” Cebull said. “I didn’t send it as racist, although that’s what it is. I sent it out because it’s anti-Obama.”

Why does Barack Obama want to keep patriots like Judge Richard Cebull from speaking their minds? [Billings Gazette]

Your honor, if it may please the court (and I know it will), can you write my "fuck you" into the court record?

I love that the defense is that he's anti-his boss, as if that's better than him being a racist prig…which he is, also, too, tambien.

ShaveTheWhales March 1, 2012 at 2:31 am

President Obama is not his boss, although that doesn't make the dickhead judge any less racist.

Negropolis March 1, 2012 at 8:07 am

You're totally right. I had a total brainfart. Anyway, his parsing is hilarious as it always is with these unfortunate situations.

BerkeleyBear March 1, 2012 at 10:50 am

He just wanted to get out of ever handling a case involving the Obama administration. You know, so much work. Guess those ranchers suing the EPA will have to find some other troglodyte appointed by W to put their thumb on the scale of justice.

Callyson March 1, 2012 at 11:34 am

I'd like to get him out of ever handling a case. Period, the end.

Huevos Ocupados March 1, 2012 at 1:45 am

I'm starting to sense some kind of trend here…

Biel_ze_Bubba March 1, 2012 at 2:46 am

I'm sensing the end of a career here. This guy's official resume now has "RACIST ASSHOLE" stamped in huge red letters on every page.

Oh — and guess who nominates Federal judges for higher positions?

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:56 am

Who?

Biel_ze_Bubba March 1, 2012 at 3:02 am
FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:08 am

Well, yes, in *this* administration, and, hopefully for the next four years, but if this creep hangs on beyond that period, hasn't he every chance in the world of advancement up the career ladder?

ShaveTheWhales March 1, 2012 at 3:26 am

Sadly, in this instance, Federal Judge is a lifetime appointment.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:37 am

You know how the wingnuts are always praying that doodledy about Barry, something about cutting his life short? May his days bla bla baaah baaah (falls on all fours, munches on lawn) where was I?

Oh, yes. We have no idea how long Mr. DICK Cebull's life will be. However, it would appear that it is not wrong to hope or pray that it be short.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:07 pm

"(falls on all fours, munches on lawn)"

Uh oh, you guys — Frothy's going all Nebucchadnezzar on our asses!
Or Ferdinand the Bull, maybe.

BerkeleyBear March 1, 2012 at 11:33 am

This douche wouldn't want to get elevated to the 9th circuit anyways – too many liberals. I'm sure he's thrilled to be pocketing 140k a year for life (which is really good for most lawyers in Big Sky country) and running GOP fundraisers on the side.

Now, there was a time when impugning the dignity of a lady was a crime – but back then, pointing out the fact that Stanley Anne Dunham willingly slept with a blah man would probably be a complete defense.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 1:15 pm

AFAIK, it is still defamation per se to impugn the chastity of a woman.

BerkeleyBear March 1, 2012 at 2:43 pm

Yeah, but chastity doesn't count if they have kids (I had to research this shit at one point and it stuck). That's why I went with the broader dignity, which has generally fallen out of the law.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:02 pm

"guess who nominates Federal judges for higher positions?"

Hitler?
No, that can't be right.

Negropolis March 1, 2012 at 1:50 am

Oh, poor babies. Are they finally coming to the realization that all the fuckin' money in the world won't gussy up their fucked up policies and ideologies? Are they just pissed that Occupy, Anonymous, and the rest have both finally found out and are exposing their racket, and are dead-set on displaying this in their vote come November?

Keep fuckin' that chicken, conservatives.

Swampgas_Man March 1, 2012 at 3:01 am

Nawww, they're just STILL, ALMOST FOUR FUCKING YEARS LATER, pissed off that the Nearer guy won.

Negropolis March 1, 2012 at 8:11 am

I'm almost sensing some self-awareness, though, as if they are realizing that maybe they can't remove him just by wishing him away with their hate.

Ruhe March 1, 2012 at 8:23 am

Of course they'll keep fucking that chicken. In Republican circles the "sunken money dilemma" is held as a principle that applies to every aspect of life. When it appears that their ideologies are being exposed they'll just double down with more of the same. When you're sure God loves you you know that you'll draw Jack, Ace the very next time…or the one after that for sure.

AddHomonym March 1, 2012 at 1:50 am

"The only reason I can explain it to you is…" "I didn’t send it as racist…" Those are some well-constructed sentences. His lordship displays impeccable reasoning skills. That's great for a judge.

Fukui-sanYesOta March 1, 2012 at 3:21 am

You know what's funny during Rosh Hashanah? A cattle train to Auschwitz

Hey, I just remarked on it. It's not racist or bigoted or anything.

Z Crudmonger March 1, 2012 at 7:50 am

You know who else used trains?

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:11 pm

??
Me, but I'm not sure what that has to do with anything.

finallyhappy March 1, 2012 at 7:05 am

well, he is a judge in Montana- not like he was appointed to somewhere real.

DerrickWildcat March 1, 2012 at 1:51 am

A Magician and Corky?

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:12 pm

Were the original questions:
How do we get these two scumbags to disappear?
and
What is their intelligence level?

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:52 am

So, once you go blah, it's a gateway to human on dog?
Does Frothy know about this?

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:46 am

KNOW about it? He's been humping that particular dog for YEARS!

SudsMcKenzie March 1, 2012 at 1:54 am

He looks like Wolf Blitzer's tan brother.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:13 pm

Strangely, Wolf Blitzer used to be Guy Blitzer, until one day a passer-by mooned him.

smokefilledroommate March 1, 2012 at 1:56 am

I didn’t send it as racist, although that’s what it is. I sent it out because it’s anti-Obama.

So he wasn't merely trying to be a racist prick, he wanted to be an anti-Obama racist prick.. Makes all the difference. Thanks for clarifying.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 1, 2012 at 12:22 pm

If you want clarity, check out the "discussion" tab on that Billings Gazette link. Makes very clear what goes on in the minds of true-blue racist redneck morons.

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 1:58 am

And don't forget the misogyny! Cuz Obama's mother is a slutty, slutty, slut who was into gang bangs and bestiality, obvs.

BTW, I linked to this story in the comments on the previous post several hours ago. Just sayin'.

flamingpdog March 1, 2012 at 2:14 am

Acknowledgments are for librul snobs.

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 2:16 am

Guilty as charged, with aggravated snobbiness. So I can haz acknowledgement?

ChuckieJesus March 1, 2012 at 6:30 am

Here's a pee.

OzoneTom March 1, 2012 at 8:01 pm

And coming out of Arizona, the story involving our favorite Sheriff (after Omar and Andy) busting some "open marriage" types for trying to get some sweet, sweet dog-on-woman sexy-times:
http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2012/02/28

Maybe they just wanted to try for a future U.S. President in the family tree.

A disappointed dog was unavailable for comments.

DerrickWildcat March 1, 2012 at 2:02 am

I keep laughing when I look at the picture of the guy at the bottom. Is there something wrong with me?

flamingpdog March 1, 2012 at 2:05 am

No, not at all, but at least have a little respect for the flag pin he's wearing on this suit coat.

smokefilledroommate March 1, 2012 at 2:11 am

Are you kidding? He's hilarious! Look at him!

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:19 am

No. However, there is a great deal wrong with him.

flamingpdog March 1, 2012 at 2:24 am

I thought you were on vacation?

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:27 am

We're not even gay-married and you never listen to a thing I say. I said I was leaving on FRIDAY. Did you know that today is Wednesday? Wednesday actually occurs two whole days before Friday, in most calendars in use in this universe.

I'm crabby. I miss all of you and I'm fucking crabby as hell and I haven't finished packing.

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 2:29 am

Okay, I missed all of the earlier explanations. Where are you going and why? And why aren't you happy about taking a vacation, Crabby Appleton?

flamingpdog March 1, 2012 at 2:32 am

Well, on the positive side, we're gonna vote to legalize small amounts of marijuana for personal usage here in the Square State come November, not just for sick peoplez.

Ruhe March 1, 2012 at 8:27 am

Are you selling your avatar image as a bumper sticker on etsy yet, cause I'll take two.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Cain't sell what ain't yours, dood. Don't know who the original artist is. It's good, tho, ain't it?

Huevos Ocupados March 1, 2012 at 2:23 am

What happened to respect in this country? We used to at least respect the office of the President, now an asshole can be an asshole no matter what. Maybe Barry ought to lose this jackasses paycheck for 6 or 7 months

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:18 am

Wut, you don't think Seal Team 6 would be a more appropriate response? Nelly LIEbrul.

Jukesgrrl March 1, 2012 at 3:20 am

Seriously, you'd think that incident with OBL would have put the fear of God in them. But they must believe in their own white power. Bwahahahhahahaha.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:26 am

Remember when he cornered RapeGurneyJoe Lieberman (I-MEEEE!) in the Senate? Lieberman was good as gold for MONTHS afterwards. I wish Barry would just cold lift Mitch McConnell off his feet by that turkey neck and whisper "Quit fucking with me Mitch" in his best baritone in Mitchie's ear. The guy is gonna outshit Seamus Romney if that happens.

Huevos Ocupados March 1, 2012 at 2:13 am

You would think that a judge, of all people, would know a thing or two about what makes for a really crappy explanation of an offensive action.

“Your honor, I didn’t rob the bank because I wanted the money, I really just wanted to prove that I’m a badass.”

“Oh, well in that case you’re free to go, my good man.”

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:17 am

Uh … A SQUEEZE ME, he is speaking about a BLAH person. It is simply not offensive to imply that BLAH persons might be dogs also too.

RadioCualquier March 1, 2012 at 2:15 am

Hey Jr., you know who else sent you this tip like 2 hours ago? Ah, I've had my tuner fucked with before. Merry Xmas.
Anyshizzle, talk about wacktivist judges.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:15 am

Lookit all these fucking slackers hanging around late at night in strange, filthy online fora like the fetal-rat-abortions that they are mocking on some fine, upright White folks simply for being white and therefore naturally inclined to associate them culludz wiv bestiality.

Also, can this motherfucker be impeached for conduct unbecoming? Any federal judges in here care to come out of the closet and tell us?

flamingpdog March 1, 2012 at 2:26 am

Dude, we can't even get the Rethugs to help impeach Slappy Thomas, much less a honky from Idaho.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:30 am

Don't mind me, I was just being all Hopey, like my Prez.

I sneaked back in here when I'm *supposed* to be packing and sleeping and shit. Don't give me grief.

Fukui-sanYesOta March 1, 2012 at 3:23 am

I think I forgot to congratulate you on your rehabilitation. If I did, I do so now – don't leave us for a month though, we'll just get lonesome and fighty.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:31 am

I can't remember either, so I'll just accept. I'll try very hard to sneak back, only problem is, the time diff. Most likely I'll be up and about when everyone else is snoring in their beds, and it'll be like being in school when everyone's gone for the holidays, or something, you know? And of course, everything depends on factors not in my control.

But if you get lonesome and fighty, I shall certainly pop in all snooty and condescending and rage at everyone in a shouty manner until they start picking on me instead, as they often do. (Hugs you fiercely)

And you take good care of yourself and if you find your foot anywhere within reach of Mittens' Nuticles, or Santorum's, deliver one of those patented combination ballet-ninja-taekwondo goolie-busters for me, won't you, darlz?

ShaveTheWhales March 1, 2012 at 3:30 am

Best of luck with whatever it is you don't seem to be looking forward to all that much. Come back safe. With any luck, we'll still be here.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:42 am

(Hugs ShaveTheWhales) Thanks. Please be here. I don't think I'd want to live in a world without Wonketteerz and hopefully also even at the Wonketz too.

C_R_Eature March 1, 2012 at 5:59 am

Hey, Froth, best of luck out there, stay strong, try and laugh a little and hurry back. I'll see if I can't send some strange & disturbing things to your gmail addy to make you feel at home.
I'll Tolchock some Troll Yarbles for you, while you're gone.

FlownOver March 1, 2012 at 9:12 am

If they have any yarbles, that is.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 1:11 pm

Hugs, CRE. You're a good friend. Take care of yourself till I get back.

Oh, and if you need any research assistance, drop us a line. I'm sure we can help. Smart people play here.

About the cancer? Can you really?

C_R_Eature March 1, 2012 at 6:20 pm

I'm no Oncologist, but I know Biology, can do research and have, unfortunately, been there with friends and family before. I'll bet I'm not the only one here, too.

Will need keywords and, no promises, will find out what I can. Knowledge is essential. Will take this offline

Deportably_Jose March 1, 2012 at 7:28 am

Can be impeached. Won't be impeached, though. Hell, the Congress won't even confirm new judges, because the Blah guy asked for them, do you really think they're going to get rid of a judge who likes to "joke" that the Blah guy's mom liked to fuck dogs?

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 1:13 pm

I knew you were secretly a Federal Judge, dood.

Maybe he'll Breitbart soon.

Good quote- but I'm sre that is not the kind of weapon they sell over in Virginia(I am too damn close to that state)

That pic is from the self-titled debut album "Dick Cebull and the Montana N*ggerhaters".

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:28 am

Wouldn't surprise me in the least.

PrimlyStable March 1, 2012 at 2:25 am

I think this proves that the only thing Wingnuts hate more than having a black president is the idea of white women having sex with black men.

Jukesgrrl March 1, 2012 at 3:22 am

Apparently they haven't heard we grrls signed the Declaration of Independence.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:33 am

Didn't you hear Jon Stewart say that women do not appear on television? At least wingnuts can't see them.

valthemus March 1, 2012 at 10:44 am

If you've ever hung around the white supremacist web forums you'd see that, indeed, the quickest way to drive those guys truly crazy is to talk about black men having sex with white women. Seal, Tiger Woods, even Melvin Van Peebles… convenient buttons to push to get a dose of instant rage out of your friendly neighborhood racist.

ShaveTheWhales March 1, 2012 at 2:34 am

I love it that Knox is a Montana state legislator who has a job in Texas. It must be his good looks that got him elected.

Biel_ze_Bubba March 1, 2012 at 2:40 am

Hey Cebull — the only barking going on here is coming from you. I think you should have a talk with your mother.

That's a joke, Mr. Cebull. You are laughing, right?

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:44 am

Perhaps we should repeatedly address him as "Mr. Pitbull."

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 2:59 am

Or "Dixie Bull".

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:05 am

(Hands tessiee the crown)

Biel_ze_Bubba March 1, 2012 at 3:00 am

Why would I want to slander an entire breed of homicidal dogs?

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:06 am

It is never a good idea to slander anyone/thing homicidal, at least not while within reach. I hereby withdraw my suggestion.

comrad_darkness March 1, 2012 at 8:43 am

No way, she only lets the dogs have the back door. His mother is a classy lady.

Another joke! I'm sure he's laughing.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:58 am

And when he got older, he graduated to much nastier things.

Anybody who jokes so casually about shooting and killing other people is worth watching.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 3:08 am

Really, the more I look at him, the more he creeps me out. The vacant smile is downright scary, like somebody who tortures animals in his basement. He reminds me of Patrick Hockstetter in that Stephen King book, IT.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:14 am

Or some famous and revolting serial torture/murderer.

smokefilledroommate March 1, 2012 at 3:31 am

The only consolation is that these jerks have to live in Montana. Cold, desolate, cow-tipping Montana.

Fukui-sanYesOta March 1, 2012 at 3:29 am

I used to like trolling Wonkette, but I got tired of it. – you

Your second link is bullshit (it was the only one I bothered clicking) – a poor quality refutation of the Southern Strategy. It contains the following:

Believe it or not, the entire myth was created by an unknown editor at the New York Times who didn’t do his job and read a story he was given to edit.

On May 17, 1970, the New York Times published an article written by James Boyd. The headline, written by our unknown editor, was “Nixon’s Southern Strategy: It’s All in the Charts.”

The article was about a very controversial political analyst named Kevin Phillips.

Let's hear from the architect of the Southern Strategy, Lee Atwater:

You start out in 1954 by saying, "Nigger, nigger, nigger." By 1968 you can't say "nigger" — that hurts you. Backfires. So you say stuff like forced busing, states' rights and all that stuff. You're getting so abstract now [that] you're talking about cutting taxes, and all these things you're talking about are totally economic things and a byproduct of them is [that] blacks get hurt worse than whites. And subconsciously maybe that is part of it. I'm not saying that. But I'm saying that if it is getting that abstract, and that coded, that we are doing away with the racial problem one way or the other. You follow me — because obviously sitting around saying, "We want to cut this," is much more abstract than even the busing thing, and a hell of a lot more abstract than "Nigger, nigger."

di_da_is_alpha March 1, 2012 at 3:43 am

How about some LBJ quotes? The Democrat Party is still the party of slavery, they've just changed their strategy.

"Under my plan, energy prices will necessarily skyrocket."

The price of gasoline now as compared to January 20th, 2009? Obama's toast, and it has nothing to do with the color of the man's skin. So quit hiding you failed fucking political philosophy behind it, you racist piece of shit.

How ya like me now? : )

Fukui-sanYesOta March 1, 2012 at 3:49 am

The "party of slavery" – yes, perhaps if you go back that far. I don't think there's a commenter here who'd claim otherwise, since it'd be disingenuous.

Your segue from the price of gasoline to your accusation of racism is … interesting.

I found this in your first link:

Richard Johnston of the University of Pennsylvania and Byron Shafer of the University of Wisconsin argue that the shift in the South from Democratic to Republican was overwhelmingly a question not of race but of economic growth. In the postwar era, they note, the South transformed itself from a backward region to an engine of the national economy, giving rise to a sizable new wealthy suburban class.

How has that played out? These are mostly states which take more Federal Ameros than they commit. Perhaps that's a badge of honour in your circles, but to me it seems like those states are poverton and the people need help.

How do I like you now? I'm ambivalent. You seem a little stupid, but I'll reserve my judgement.

Your friend,
a racist piece of shit.

C_R_Eature March 1, 2012 at 6:09 am

Oh, boy. We've been graced by a visit from The Boy In The Bubble, again.
The Information Bubble, that is.

Was there a Breitbart post I missed, somewhere? That always brings them out.

DerrickWildcat March 1, 2012 at 3:50 am

I suppose that would explain why Blacks overwhelming vote Dem.

Fukui-sanYesOta March 1, 2012 at 3:53 am

It's because Obama is toast and we like toast.

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 4:47 am

They're too dumb brainwashed to realize that the party that is constantly caught spewing racist, dehumanizing, eliminationist hate speech, as well going to extreme lengths to keep them from voting, is the party that really has their best interests at heart.

Wut iz their goldurn problum, anyway?

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 4:42 am

The price of gas was quite low on January 20, 2009, because of a little something called the Bush Global Financial Catastrophe. The resulting worldwide recession decimated demand for fuel.

However, just a few months earlier, in July of 2008, gas prices reached a record high of $4.11. And not a single lying, trolling wingnut said boo about it, or breathed a word of blame against the Most Incompetent President in History™.

We don't all have Alzheimer's, as inconvenient as that may be for Republicans.

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 4:27 am

Yes, imbecile. 150 years ago, the Republicans were split between the Radicals and the Liberals.

And then with the Civil Rights Act of 1965 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which were passed by Democratic majorities in the House and Senate, and were signed into law by a Democratic president, the racist southern Democrats switched parties and became racist southern Republicans. See Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms, Trent Lott, David Duke, ad infinitum. Some racist southerners left the Democratic Party and became Independents like George Wallace and Lester Maddox.

And the liberal and moderate Republicans who voted for the two Acts were purged from the party.

If you were capable of reading, as opposed to cutting and pasting, you might have noticed that 100% of southern Republicans in the House and Senate voted against the Civil Rights Act, whereas a small handful of southern Democrats voted for it.

As for the ridiculous wingnut meme that Republicans 'passed' the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act, ten seconds of research would have netted you the info that in 1964 and 1965, the House and Senate were both controlled by Democratic majorities, and by wide margins. Republicans could not have passed the legislation if a majority of Democrats hadn't voted for the legislation.

And it is worth noting that Republicans chose Barry Goldwater, a man who voted against the Civil Rights Act, as their presidential candidate in 1964. And by 1968, Nixon had begun developing the 'Southern Strategy' of playing on white resentment of minorities.

And that is why the red states and the former confederate states are so closely aligned.

As for welfare, I'm betting that you have your snout deep in the government trough. Like free market hero Michele Bachmann, who's been leaching off the government her entire adult life. Or free market hero Joe Miller in Alaska, who lived off his wife's unemployment and had every one of his eight children on medicaid. Or free market hero Paul Ryan, who lived off Social Security as a teen, and has been sponging off the government ever since. Or free market hero Newt Gingrich, whose entire career has been on the public dime or profiting from graft and influence peddling using his government connections.

So what's your welfare? Social Security? Medicare? Disability? Farm subsidy? War profiteering? Don't bother responding. I've wasted enough time educating your dumb, dishonest ass.

Lemme try and anticipate Little Mr. Trollfaec's counterpoint:

BUUT ROBERT BYRD!!1

Nevermind that Byrd confessed of his racist past repeatedly and spent the last 50 years of his life trying to make amends, whereas Strom "Segregation Forever" Thurmond, and Trent "We wouldn't have had the problems we have if the Segregation Party had won the presidency" Lott never recanted anything about their earlier racist and pro-segregation positions, which they continued to hold for decades after Byrd found religion.

Which party … Dred Scott…

No Republican appointed justices voted on the Dred Scott case because the Republican party wasn't fully formed in 1857. The 7-2 decision was led by Chief Justice Taney, a Jackson (Democrat) appointee.

That court decision led directly to the "birthright clause" in the 14th Amendment. (A clause many of today's Republicans oppose, citing "anchor babies" and "terror babies" and, other, basically, non-white babies as a problem. Taney would approve.)

In the years that followed, the South became staunchly Democratic because Lincoln was a Republican. And black voters — where they existed — became Republicans for the same reason. But in the last 50 years or so, those allegiances have been reversed, primarily because northern Democrats supported civil rights for African-Americans.

So how much credit or blame can today's Republicans and Democrats take for Dred Scott decision? None. I think all those justices are dead now.

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 8:55 am

Thank you. Confronting patent horseshit is a never-ending chore.

Tundra Grifter March 1, 2012 at 9:50 am

JustPixelz:

A careful reading of the Wong Kim Ark Supreme Court decision (1898) shows the "birthright clause" of the 14th Amendment didn't change the existing law. The opinion holds the law had been the same since America's founding. For white males, of course.

It did extend that right to all citizens – Black, Asian, gypsy – everybody.

That's American Exceptionalism.
So, as the top Federal Judge in Montana,and likely a little proud of himself, no doubt he'd welcome the same show of disrespect for authority in his own court room, seeing it as humor and all. Montana defense attornies, take note of that.

That dishonorable man is very, very white under those piggy-pink cheeks. I move that every defendant with skin even a shade browner than his, who was sentenced from Judge Cebull's bench, should be awarded a new trial in a different court if they so wish. I don't care how much it costs. It's a matter of judicial ethics. He has demonstrated extreme bias and an inability to control it even when the most basic courtesy to his superior is called for. Why should we believe that his prejudice has never factored in to one of his trials or sentencings?

Obvious problems:

1) Just because you're only racist in private, doesn't mean you're not racist.

2) Email sent from a workplace account, much less a government account, is not "in private", by any stretch of the imagination

3) Suggesting that Obama's mother is a whore and into bestiality, because she had a mixed-race child, is not "Anti-Obama"; it's anti-mixed-raced-people. Read: RACIST

4) The fact that this guy is on the bench, anwhere in this country at all.

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 8:12 am

Parsing the many layers of bigotry required to find this 'joke' 'funny' is not so much of a challenge.

1) People of African descent are barely a step above dogs.

2) A white woman could not possibly have sex with a person of African descent without being addled with drink or drugs. "From what I can remember about that party…"

3) A white woman who has consensual sex with a person of African descent must also be willing to engage in orgies or gang bangs.

4) ANY white woman who would have consensual sex with a person of African descent would not hesitate to engage in bestiality.

5) A white man can innocently tell this 'joke' without revealing and acknowledging antisocial, pathological levels of racism, misogyny, and white male supremacist beliefs.

6) A white man who has openly demonstrated virulent hatred, contempt, and bigotry toward black people, women, and minorities can perform competently and impartially as a judge in the United States justice system.

What could possibly go wrong?

Chichikovovich March 1, 2012 at 9:20 am

Nailed it. There are so many dimensions of loathsome in this joke it takes time to unravel them all. One might also add that this tells us that this guy's social circle consists of people who he expects would find this excrement funny.

I remember being struck with how many levels of disgusting there were when McCain told his revolting "joke" about Hilary/Janet Reno/Chelsea. (That someone could tell a "joke" like that, along with the Bomb Iran ditty and still be considered a viable presidential candidate is just beyond my comprehension.) Throws a hateful, hurtful insult at the physical appearance of the Attorney General, the FLOTUS and the president's teenage daughter (his teenage daughter, for Christ's sake!). Suggests the daughter is not in fact the President's natural daughter. Suggests that Hilary and Janet Reno are lesbians – there is nothing wrong if they are, but the suggestion is motivated just by an insulting stereotype of lesbians and a judgement that Hilary and Reno don't fit McCain's and his bozo buddies' ideal of feminine deference and physical appearance. And, of course, it displays the attitude that to be a lesbian is a shameful thing. I've probably even missed a few.

But this piece of vomit spewed out by – ahem – His Honor – has an even denser dimensions-of-hatefulness – to – word ratio.

Doesn't every employer tell you that-there is no expectation of privacy on a company email or on the company computer- so you cannot switch to another email account and be "homefree"

Deportably_Jose March 1, 2012 at 8:23 am

True. But even with the lack of privacy, most non-fuckwitted private employers aren't going to waste time and manpower snooping on employees unless they have a decent reason to do so.

Working for the government, on the other hand, is an entirely different beast, since you are routinely required to save and disclose any and all office communications, and you'd have to be a moron not to know this, or to know this and pull some shit like this anyway. Which is what makes the fact that this guy sent it from a work email (that the original article notes that he sent it to his private email account, among other recipients) particularly galling.

finallyhappy March 1, 2012 at 8:34 am

I worked for the Feds so I know the gov't rules- not that it stopped people from downloading porn,gambling or running a business(not gambling or porn- but still not legal) on their office computers- fired, demoted, put on unpaid leave(or just left alone to do it again until it hit the newspapers). I am sure there would have been plenty of awful emails sent but we were relatively low level in my office so generally anyone I worked with would not have been caught

I worked on pipeline construction out in the Canadian wilderness in the summers to pay for undergraduate school. No radio stations out there except CBC and (french) SRC which only had classical music and sometimes traditional folk. So whoever had the biggest car stereo got to establish the soundtrack for the summer. One summer that happened to be a single-minded Zappa fanatic. He was also one of the welders, and so therefore #1 in the crew coolness hierarchy, so if he said Zappa, it was Zappa. 24/7.

I could sing that guy in my sleep at this point, and I didn't even like it all that much. (Though I did love certain moments – zircon encrusted tweezers/ move to Montana to become a dental floss tycoon was one of them.)

You can say something or print something and the gov't may not do anything about it -but the first amendment has nothing to do with your employer's right to fire you or someone to complain and demand that something offensive be removed- it doesn't affect your first amendment rights- you got to say it or ask for it to be said and now the private sector is getting rid of it- or you.

It should be noted that this amusing anecdote also slyly implies that the mom is a substance-abusing party slut, and she and the animal-negro did it doggie style. Furthermore, it is the mom who comes off badly in the story. Barack is just a biracial child curious about his origins, and Fido managed to score some white tail at a party.

In other words, the judge is basically a 5-year-old. Got it.

OhNoGuy March 1, 2012 at 9:50 pm

You've got to wonder how many of G.W.'s appointments are just short of being stupid enough to send this kind of email from his/her government computer. I'm guessing a lot. Just one more aspect of G.W.'s revenge.

Anthony Hopkins played Col. Harland Sanders?

Tundra Grifter March 1, 2012 at 11:43 am

EllenStranger:

When I was in high school I worked in a (well, the) local restaurant in a very small Ohio college town.

One Saturday during lunch a gentleman in a white suit, goatee, etc., came in with a large party. We asked his wife "Is he Colonel Morton?"

At the time, Colonel Morton's was a local frozen food brand. Colonel Morton, who may well have been just as real as Betty Crocker (or Marie Callendar, for all I know) was a Kentucky Colonel dressed in a white suit, had a goatee, etc.).

She said "No, he's Col. Sanders."

We were very disappointed, as we thought we'd served someone famous.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 2:45 pm

Quite a few years back, a friend of mine worked in a large hospital. Col. Sanders came in to visit some friend of his that was recovering from surgery.

I don't know the exact sequence of events, but they wanted to forcibly take him to the mental ward, and he kept saying, "But I REALLY AM Col. Sanders!". Eventually, he produced enough ID that they let him go about his business.

valthemus March 1, 2012 at 11:12 am

Some people see a black man in the White House the way some people see the queen of England: A figurehead who makes speeches while other people are wielding the actual power. Certain people see Obama as a worthless individual and an illegitimate president simply by virtue of the fact that, to them, black people can't have worth. And they are so absolutely convinced of this fact that, in their arrogance, they think no one of consequence disagrees with them. "So I sent out a racist email… who cares? Surely not anyone I'd think of as important!" When these things happen, the people responsible are often genuinely surprised by some of the people who point fingers at them and shout, "Asshole!"

That said, take out "Barack" and make it a generic joke about a drunken party mom screwing the night away and it's actually pretty funny.

Jukesgrrl March 1, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Yes, "some people" do exhibit those beliefs and/or behaviors. But not all of those "some people" are Federal judges. This overt display of racism calls into question many of the rulings that have been handed down from his bench. The expense of addressing the appeals that might result is reason alone to unseat him. Take whatever attitude you like about Cebull's racism. But he has violated the ethical standards required in his position.

glamourdammerung March 1, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Some people see a black man in the White House the way some people see the queen of England.

Some people think Obama is an alien, shape-shifting Lizard Person/Jew that drinks the blood of Christian babies?

And this is when I realized I read too many conservative internet posts.

Negropolis March 1, 2012 at 10:21 pm

Honestly, just speak for yourself.

bikerlaureate March 1, 2012 at 11:23 am

We need 'Cebull' to become a verb. He deserves a "Google problem" of his own.

glamourdammerung March 1, 2012 at 11:33 am

I wonder if they get to fire him now because every single black person that lost a judgement to this moron has a free appeal.

glamourdammerung March 1, 2012 at 11:38 am

I somehow doubt this counts as serving "during good behavior". The removal would be hilarious just to see the Republicans defending this crap as somehow innocent.

DaRooster March 1, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Black Dog

Good Zeppelin song…

Repugnant racist joke.

Barrelhse March 1, 2012 at 12:08 pm

This guy's pic set off my gaydar.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 12:49 pm

You know, thinking about it, I have to say that I really prefer "knock-knock" jokes to "your mother fucked a dog" jokes.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:00 pm

"Barack Obama is black because his white mother was impregnated by a … dog. A black dog, we guess?"

The implication, and it gives me absolutely no joy whatsoever to understand it, is that a white woman who will have sex with a black man is so lacking in standards that she'll do anything, including have sex with dogs.

owhatever March 1, 2012 at 1:01 pm

Everybody barks in Montana. Or moos. Or cackles. What's the big deal?

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 1:07 pm

(Hugs FlownOver) Thanks, dood.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 1:53 pm

When I lived in North Carolina, there was a lot of Bull Durham (the tobacco company, not the movie, although I used to go to the ballpark where the movie was shot) advertising art in antique stores, etc. This is one of the least offensive images, and fits perfectly with your joke:
http://mainstreet.lib.unc.edu/projects/tobacco_du

nanooknw March 1, 2012 at 2:05 pm

You don't like Obama so you attack his dead mother! That makes sense.
Attacking those who cannot defend themselves, a republican tradition.

Sheesko March 1, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Isn't it telling that even a judge-type person, theoretically a kollitch graduate an' all, can't come up with any other way to denounce a politician he disapproves of? Why not mention some policies he's initiated that he dislikes, and why? No, see, that would be too hard, because of facts.

rickmaci March 1, 2012 at 2:21 pm

“I didn’t send it as racist, although that’s what it is. I sent it out because it’s anti-Obama.”

No sir, you sent it as someone who is worthy only of our contempt but not of the position of US Federal District Court Judge.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 2:47 pm

To "Cebull" is to involuntarily (because you're clueless) reveal that you're a racist piece of shit.
Noun form: A "Cebull" is the kind of slip that you make because you're a racist piece of shit, and are then surprised (because you're clueless) that it causes an uproar, so you issue a half-assed "apology" that makes things even worse.

rickmaci March 1, 2012 at 2:59 pm

Dying to know who leaked this to the newspaper. My guess is somebody who is not a very big fan of his District KKKourt Judge Grand Wizardliness.

Jukesgrrl March 1, 2012 at 4:53 pm

I know a lot of judges because of my mother's longtime career in the courts. The majority of the ones I know are Luddites who require their secretaries to print hard copies of their E-mails. I suspect the one who leaked is a secretary or someone who saw a hard-copy lying around. And hooray for that person.

barto March 1, 2012 at 3:00 pm

So comforting to know that we have such thoughtful, deep-thinking mental giants applying the law of the land!

Jukesgrrl March 1, 2012 at 4:38 pm

The Billings Gazette's Website has 59 comment on this article. Other than mine, 12 comments criticize Cebull. The others are screeds against President Obama. This is the nicest one:

"It is really sad. This judge is a fool. He is an idiot to do something like this and leave himself open to all this criticism. Many of us out here in Montana depise [sic], loathe, and detest this Obama creature. But because he is half black has nothing to do with it. He is a monster, but his race is not the problem, no one cares about his race, it is because he is such an arch leftist, such a liar, such a deceiver."

Common Cause called for Cebull's resignation today. "'If he has any respect for his office and for ideals of equality and human dignity on which our country was founded, Judge Cebull will step down today,' said Bob Edgar, president of the Washington, D.C.-based nonpartisan government watchdog group, in a prepared statement." The organization contacted every representative of Congress drawing attention to this situation.

Andrea Helling, a spokeswoman for Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT), said, "Jon is concerned by the situation because it calls into question the lack of judgment by a federal judge." It would be up to the Chief of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to instigate a special investigatory committee of judges if Cebull is to be censured or impeached. But first an official complaint has to be lodged with the Chief Judge.

I encouraged Sen. Tester to initiate the complaint. If anyone would care to join me: http://tester.senate.gov/Contact/

Troglodeity March 1, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Well, I'm sure that the House leadership is already writing up Articles of Impeachment.

aklibtard March 1, 2012 at 8:26 pm

Because it's not inappropriate for any federal judge to be mass forwarding racist emails about a sitting president. No reason for recusal on cases addressing federal laws passed under said president.

OhNoGuy March 1, 2012 at 9:56 pm

The only fair thing to do is break his wrists and chain him to a toilet at the bus station overnight. It's simply a matter of justice. I'm sure all right thinking people will agree.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:37 am

I knew I'd just get myself deeper in the shit for crabbing. It never fails. Kick the furniture and stub yer toe.

It's not a vacation. I'm going away, on FRIDAY, and I might not be back for quite a while, although I'll sneak in for a bit on SuperTuesday because I must know which of these miserable motherfuckers will finally lose it and start screaming "N*****!!" at the top of their lungs in public while jacking off in the faces of the other candidates. Is that wrong of me? OK, I guess it is.

Let's just say it's not a happy time. I hope everything will be fine and I'll be back in a month or two, but if not, well, it might be a while before I talk to y'all.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 2:38 am

Tom Terrific and Mighty Manfred the Wonder Dog FTW!

Crank_Tango March 1, 2012 at 2:41 am

Little known math fact: if you use many many small amounts of marijuana, it can sometimes add up to larger amounts, and nachos.

The more you know!

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:41 am

Yay~! I bet that will work wonders on your stomach, pdog. Srsly. I dropped 60 lb last year because I couldn't eat, dr. thought it was cancer, sent me for every test under the sun. Started smoking a little of the Noble Weed, and here I am, as fat as a hippo once more, and twice as happy. Here's hoping your innards respond the same way. I recommend the purple strains. They're pretty soothing and relaxing, and these days the stuff you can get just isn't like the old "take a toke and fart yer brain out" stuff we used to have in the old days. Nowadays you can get strains that make you hyper, or sleepy, or hungry, or giggly, or OCD-ey — or pretty much anything, really. Here's hoping!

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 2:46 am

I wish you the very best possible journey, and hope you arrive at your destination safe and sound.

Crab away, if it releases stress. We Wonketteers don't crumple. We are made of sterner stuff than that.

I will hold off on farewells till FRIDAY. ;-)

DerrickWildcat March 1, 2012 at 2:53 am

Are you going Ghost Hunting?

Swampgas_Man March 1, 2012 at 3:03 am

I upfist you in solidarity!

DCBloom March 1, 2012 at 6:20 am

I'm here everyday for a number of years. I rarely comment. Either because I don't have the time, or because by the time I read through all the comments, I realize that you guys have already taken all the good snarks.

ANYWAY…. Frothy, you are one of my favs, so I just wanted to send you a big ol' hug from the sidelines. Your comments will be missed.

UnholyMoses March 1, 2012 at 11:24 am

Wishing you the best, FROTHY!!!

<<man hug>>

Take care of yourself and do try to pop in every once in a while to post one of your righteous rants.

Mmm'kay?

:-)

hunnybee March 2, 2012 at 5:34 pm

hugs Frothy. take care my dear.

Biff March 3, 2012 at 12:10 pm

Just like being pretend-married, nobody tells me anything!

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 2:50 am

I wondered how many would get the reference. Do you remember Beanie and Cecil, too? And "Drizzle, drazzle, drozzle, drone / Time for this one to come home?"

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:52 am

(Hugs the Raven) No, kiddo,let's say g'bye now. I might not have much time tomorrow to sneak in for my Wonketz fix, and I know I won't have time Friday.

I'm just really happy to have found such a wonderful place and such wonderful peeps. And I'll miss my daily fix. But I hope I'll be back soon with vile invective ready for the race.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 2:55 am

No, I'm going walkabout.

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 2:56 am

Hugs, FROTHY! Fare thee well. (Although I'm betting we will 'see' each other in comments tonight and tomorrow.)

I sense we share a touch of internet induced procrastination syndrome.

Jukesgrrl March 1, 2012 at 3:16 am

Frothy, as of midnight it's my birthday and I hereby dedicate the anniversary of my March 1 arrival on the planet to your well-being and safe return to The Wonketeria. In like a lion and out like a lamb, or vice versa; you may choose this year. Fare thee well.

Nothingisamiss March 1, 2012 at 8:14 am

Vile invectives are good for the soul.

DerrickWildcat March 1, 2012 at 2:56 am

Well be careful of snakes.

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 2:57 am

I remember that Cecil was a seasick sea serpent, and that's all.

Tom Terrific wore a funnel for a hat, and he was on ?? Davey and Goliath? Or Crusader Rabbit and Rags the tiger? Some show that aired at 6 am, anyway.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:01 am

Thanks, sweetie! I'll miss you! I'm here for a bit, and if I get done in time tomorrow I've promised myself a few minutes here. You know. One last hit before I go. You take care of yourself. And never quit being a troublemaker!

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:02 am

I will, DerrickWildcat. (Hugs Derrick) I'm taking my camera. It's not as good as yours, but I'm still in practice mode, and if I have time I will take pictures of birds and shit in a country far away and maybe some might even be good enough to show you. I will be looking at your pictures. You take care of yourself.

Swampgas_Man March 1, 2012 at 3:05 am

I remember Tom Terrific as being on Captain Kangaroo, but I'm just a young'un.

RavenRant March 1, 2012 at 3:20 am

TT was on Captain Kangaroo. Davey and Goliath – I always got sucked in by the animation, before I remembered it had tiresome religious messages. I was pretty religious as a kid, but PLEEZE! Leave the cartoons alone!

And Beanie and Cecil went under several names.

Back to the racist/misogynist judge!

finallyhappy March 1, 2012 at 7:09 am

Davey and Goliath- those early claymation christian cartoons- I liked Goliath's voice!

tessiee March 1, 2012 at 3:09 am

You're right, it was Captain Kangaroo.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:11 am

I hug you back.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:12 am

I don't have to tell you how much I will miss your head-noogies.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 3:20 am

Happy birfday, Jukesgrrl! Yay! I'm so glad you were born, man. Have a wonderful birfday for me, and we'll celebrate when I get back. Hugs!

Let us work against that horrible day. What an awful, nasty creature he is.

Huevos Ocupados March 1, 2012 at 6:45 am

Can we really rule out a 'bipartisan compromise' that would find our hero nominating this guy for scotus in exchange for a jelly filled donut (flavor to be determined at a later date)?

C_R_Eature March 1, 2012 at 6:15 am

Easy, now!

Nothingisamiss March 1, 2012 at 8:11 am

"Let us work against that horrible day."

I think I've found myself a one sentence motivation (as if I needed any, but still) for this coming election. Really. Great thought, great line.

finallyhappy March 1, 2012 at 7:08 am

I'm not sure why you are going away- I hope it turns out well. we need to take care of the sane people left in the world- their number seems to be diminishing to me.

Oh, right, for the "shit" part. (Hugs you) Li'l devil.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 12:53 pm

Oh, taking care of business, you know how it goes. There's always something or someone that needs taking care of, and sometimes we just have to step up and do our duty.

I hug you and hope to return much sooner than expected, thereby annoying the shit out of everyone who acted all sad-and-missy.

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Thank you so much, DCBloom! I'm so pleased to meet you! You and I can keep each other company on the sidelines soon, since time differences will probly keep me commentless for a while. (Hugs the li'l flower) I'll look for you!

FROTHY March 1, 2012 at 1:00 pm

Thank you very much.

Wait. You're just trying to make me *feel* better, aren't you? (Hysterical meltdown ensues)
