LET'S HAVE A WAR  1:14 pm March 23, 2012

Daily Caller: Obama Commented on Trayvon Because Black Panthers Told Him To

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

Not a man who should start a race war.Whew! Tucker Carlson’s Daily Callgirl couldn’t quite figure out how to blame Barack Obama for Trayvon Martin’s death, but thankfully star “reporter” Matthew Boyle came up with the next best thing: President Barack Obama only commented on the death of a young man shot by a guy muttering “fucking coons” because the Black Panthers told him to.

Matthew Boyle, our hats are off to you! Seriously, those are some big black balls you got hanging under that belly.

Obama and the White House have previously refrained from commenting on the case thus far. Following demands by the New Black Panthers and others on scene in Sanford, Fla. that the White House get involved, Obama jumped into the fight. When first asked about the case, White House press secretary Jay Carney essentially declined comment, offering a boilerplate statement of condolence to Martin’s family.

On Thursday, the New Black Panthers and other left-wing political figures including the Rev. Al Shartpon rallied in Sanford, Fla., demanding justice for Martin – and that police arrest the man who shot him, George Zimmerman. The Panthers, Sharpton and other left-wing political figures on scene invoked the racial components of the fight, with some alleging this was a “hate crime” and others claiming this was “racism perpetrated by violence.” They riled up the thousands in attendance, but urged them to avoid resorting to violence of their own.

Great job, Boyle! What will you spend your bonus on when the race war comes?

 

Hola wonkerados.

To improve site performance, we did a thing. It could be up to three minutes before your comment appears. DON'T KEEP RETRYING, OKAY?

Also, if you are a new commenter, your comment may never appear. This is probably because we hate you.

A blow up doll that he will name Ariel.

Nothingisamiss March 23, 2012 at 1:18 pm

She won't have him.

weej_bain March 23, 2012 at 1:35 pm

I have a confused. Thought Barb was inferring a Tucker-Boyle-Ariel Sharon three-way. Now try and get that image erased anytime soon.

Why can't Tucker spend his trust fund on Lamborghinis, cocaine and $2000 a night call girls, like a respectable spoiled little rich boy?

beavertank March 23, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Because those can only annoy a small segment of the population at a time. A true spoiled rich kid won't settle for less than annoying 5% of the country at a time.

elviouslyqueer March 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Why can't Tucker spend his trust fund on Lamborghinis, cocaine and $2000 a night call girls rent boys

Fixed, for accuracy.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 23, 2012 at 3:07 pm

Or a vanity campaign for the Senate?

(claps hand over own mouth)

Never said it! Never said it!

fitley March 25, 2012 at 11:46 am

Because he's a self-loathing closeted gay?

Clancy_Pants March 23, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Mitt Romney: "Speaking for the New Black Panthers is not something I would do, but I am good friends with the owner of the Carolina Panthers"

Toomush_Infer March 23, 2012 at 3:37 pm

And he did own a small country that had panthers…

Yesterday I said I didn't want it to rain today. Today it hasn't rained. Obviously the rain clouds are doing what I tell them.

bikerlaureate March 23, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Props. I was trying to create snark about some poor slob being tasked with explaining "Correlation does not equal causation" to these shills, but your pithy example is hard to beat.

Gleem McShineys March 23, 2012 at 3:02 pm

May I suggest you say "assholes, stop being assholes" and maybe Matthew Boyle will cut this shit out!

ChernobylSoup March 23, 2012 at 1:20 pm

"Previously, thus far" is the new also, too.

el_donaldo March 23, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Fidel Castro, Angela Davis, the ghosts of Adolf Hitler and Saul Alinsky, the New Black Panthers, Al Sharpton, and other left-wing figures…

Fixed.

SorosBot March 23, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Yeah, Obama does whatever Al Sharpton and the New Black Panthers (all what, three of them?) want him to because he's black. That is a perfectly cromulent argument, and in no way stupid or racist.

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 1:25 pm

They're embiggening an issue out of proportion.

Studebaker Hawk March 23, 2012 at 1:28 pm

Why else would he pose for a photo in a Bootsy Collins outfit with a bucket of fried chicken? Q.E.D.

The old "A black guy made me do it." It's not just for South Carolina anymore.

That took a while..

edgydrifter March 23, 2012 at 1:21 pm

On the other hand, taking orders from Koch Industries is patriotic!

beavertank March 23, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Of course, they're job creators! What have those lazy shiftless bl… I mean… Of course, they're job creators!

Texan_Bulldog March 23, 2012 at 1:21 pm

In honor of the Hunger Games opening today, can we gather a bunch of these right wing douche bags & have them fight to the death?

prommie March 23, 2012 at 1:24 pm

At least there are four of them doing that right now.

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 1:26 pm

They do that already – it's called the Free Market.

beavertank March 23, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Only if you build it in the desert and call it "Thunder Dome".

…I don't much cotton to these newfangled post-apocalyptic movies.

pickletickle March 23, 2012 at 1:22 pm

If there's a race war, wouldn't Barry then, by definition, have to target himself. Half-breeds…they just can't win.

facehead March 23, 2012 at 1:22 pm

"The New Black Panthers" sounds like a reality show about hot middle-aged black women who seduce young men.

In any case, obviously Hitler told Obama to do it.

ChernobylSoup March 23, 2012 at 1:25 pm

You have just described the one and only reality show I would ever participate in.

Edit: I'm not a black woman. Not really a "young" man either, but I'm sure the network can bend the rules.

beavertank March 23, 2012 at 1:33 pm

I always see that as the real-world version of a bad Marvel comic spin-off targeting a younger audience that invariably fails because it's the worst thing perpetrated on mankind since Twilight.

My version of the world is MUCH more entertaining than militant angry blah people.

SorosBot March 23, 2012 at 1:35 pm

It could be a spinoff of MILF Island!

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 1:39 pm

DeBORah was promised a spin-off.

Dashboard Buddha March 23, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Wouldn't that be Black Cougars?

prommie March 23, 2012 at 1:22 pm

On the alt text, you coulda stopped it at "Not a man"

Chill-A-Sketch March 23, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Today, we are all Black Panthers.

(Didn't I tell you this shit would happen?).

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Everything's going all helter skelter.

MarionNYNY March 23, 2012 at 1:28 pm

I get the reference. You're not as young as your pic.

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 1:33 pm

I'm actually younger – I just read books. And watch A&E.

Dashboard Buddha March 23, 2012 at 1:56 pm

Just wait 'til I get to the bottom of the slide.

Callyson March 23, 2012 at 1:23 pm

So, first Boyle went after Obama for essentially declining to comment, and now he is after Obama because he did comment. What reaction could Obama have given that would have pleased Boyle? Expressing condolences in sign language maybe?
Well, I've got a gesture for Boyle…
Moran.

James Michael Curley March 23, 2012 at 1:23 pm

Tucker Carlson used to be somebody wasn't he? Blew his fifteen minutes in 8:20.

SayItWithWookies March 23, 2012 at 1:28 pm

He was on Dancing with the Stars. I can't remember which star he was paired with though.

James Michael Curley March 23, 2012 at 2:07 pm

Mrs. Curley watched it. Was it with Tom Delay?

V572 Flambé March 23, 2012 at 1:34 pm

He pretty much went in the dumper after Jon Stewart went on his show and bitch-slapped him.

James Michael Curley March 23, 2012 at 2:05 pm

Forgot that.  Saw it too.

SayItWithWookies March 23, 2012 at 1:24 pm

What the fuck is "racism perpetrated by violence?!" Racism abetted with violence I can see, but the racism was there before the violence. What weaselly fuckin' language to use. Racism perpetuated by violence. How's that?

Grief_Lessons March 23, 2012 at 1:30 pm

It seems you're perpetrating some grammatical intolerance, there. Perpetrating it by lucidity.

Dashboard Buddha March 23, 2012 at 1:55 pm

Lucid libel!

elviouslyqueer March 23, 2012 at 1:38 pm

Word salad goes in, word salad comes out. You can't explain it.

anniegetyerfun March 23, 2012 at 2:49 pm

No, no, no. Violence is just violence. It only becomes racism when someone notices, and mentions, that the victim was black. IT'S LIKE YOU'RE NOT EVEN LISTENING.

lefty74 March 23, 2012 at 1:24 pm

Tucker Carlson has no dick!

SmutBoffin March 23, 2012 at 1:25 pm

I demand that the president execute federal law, appoint federal executive, diplomatic, regulatory, and judicial officers, and conclude treaties with foreign powers.

OMG THE PRESIDENT IS DOING EXACTLY WHAT I TOLD HIM TO DO! WHEN WILL THE DAILY CALLER WRITE ABOUT THIS!?

MarionNYNY March 23, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Accusing the President of pandering to the radical left! I'm shocked. Never would I have expected this from Fox News or a journalist of Mr. Carlson's caliber.

Exhausted66 March 23, 2012 at 1:27 pm

M. Boyle.

So aptly named.

weej_bain March 23, 2012 at 1:27 pm

And Mittens only spoke about how he is the anointed after Al Jazeera called for Frothy & Neuter to play the Hungarian card. This is an even sillier cause-effect than the Evilgenitals saying every tornado is doG's wrath over America's love of all things ghey and abortinplexy.

freakishlywrong March 23, 2012 at 1:27 pm

Just once, I wish Barry could say something, anything, and hear resounding silence from the orcs. Maybe his acceptance speech in November.

Sharkey March 23, 2012 at 1:28 pm

I guess Condi Rice wasn't available for comment.

Goonemeritus March 23, 2012 at 1:28 pm

This feels kind of old-school isn’t there some way Islamofacists could also be blamed. Where is the creativity in this, perhaps a little more blackboard time is called for.

starfanglednut March 23, 2012 at 2:05 pm

And teh wimminz, with their abortions and birth control.

CrunchyKnee March 23, 2012 at 1:28 pm

The New Black Panthers? Didn't they release an album recently?

Selfish_T March 23, 2012 at 1:29 pm

The hackitude is strong in this one. I predict a long and lucrative career in right-wing political commentary.

freakishlywrong March 23, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Wait till these fucking conservatives learn they're defending a Latino.

bumfug March 23, 2012 at 1:29 pm

Fuck! The Daily Caller knows everything! If they find out about Zombie Abbie Hoffman we're really done for!

swordfis March 24, 2012 at 8:33 pm

Steal this shroud.

samsuncle March 23, 2012 at 1:30 pm

What I want to know is who told Tucker that he looked good in a bowtie?

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 1:40 pm

His mother. Every day she tells him he looks sooo handsome.

Dashboard Buddha March 23, 2012 at 1:53 pm

Also the rentboy that his mother hires for him comments positively on the ties as well.

ManchuCandidate March 23, 2012 at 1:30 pm

Boyle seems to be shilling a meme of "Black people have no reason to do or be anything."

RadioStalingrad March 23, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Wait, what? They're off script here, I thought Obama took his orders from Media Matters and Soros.

GOPCrusher March 23, 2012 at 4:37 pm

Aren't the Black Panthers the new militant arm of the Soros Empire since ACORN was taken down?

larryfinexx March 23, 2012 at 1:31 pm

Charlie Manson is the puppett master

FakaktaSouth March 23, 2012 at 1:32 pm

Oh good, if the 2-live crew NBB are there, then Fox can cover the protests from their usual angle as well.

ALso, that picture. Oh god, I don't care what Jon Stewart says, a bow tie is much preferable to whatever the hell THAT shit is. Tucker is a dick.

Fare la Volpe March 23, 2012 at 1:34 pm

Even dicks grow hair.

FakaktaSouth March 23, 2012 at 1:37 pm

I know, and I like dicks after all. Jon shoulda said something better. Tucker the fucker (which I also like) or something

FakaktaSouth March 23, 2012 at 1:36 pm

NBP? Maybe? Damn. I am whiter than Mitt sometimes. I can't EVEN do rap names.

C_R_Eature March 23, 2012 at 1:32 pm

It will be a great day when our schools get all the money they need and the Daily Caller has to hold a Bake Sale to publish bullshit.

twoeightnine March 23, 2012 at 1:34 pm

"What will you spend your bonus on when the race war comes?"

Hopefully a hoodie.

And no, not another white one like you already own.

CivicHoliday March 23, 2012 at 1:39 pm

Apparently Matthew Boyle and other Daily Caller "journalists" have been reading our comments section, since I am pretty sure one of us made a joke about Obama using the word "soul" and how that could be used to associate him with the Black Panthers.

not that Dewey March 23, 2012 at 1:56 pm

1. strip a Wonkette comment of all sarcasm, intelligence, and context
2. publish it with a straight face in a rw hack journal
3. ???
4. Profit!

sullivanst March 23, 2012 at 3:03 pm

3. wait for the knuckledraggers to suck it up like it was ambrosia.

Beowoof March 23, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Wow, those guys really got nothing do they. They should get on board with the Onion before they completely embarrass themselves. At least then folks with think the dumb is on purpose not a reflection of political philosophy.

CommieLibunatic March 23, 2012 at 1:51 pm

This is starting to get confusing. Is Obama some grand dictator? Or just some puppet for (insert organization name here)? STOP MESSING WITH MY HEAD, CONSPIRACY THEORISTS!!

Oh, what the fuck ever.

sullivanst March 23, 2012 at 2:59 pm

Cognitive dissonance – they haz it.

spends2much March 23, 2012 at 1:54 pm

Tucker Carlson; born on third base, but still manages to get tagged out after taking a grounder in the nuts. Idiot.

Sassomatic March 23, 2012 at 1:59 pm

"Following demands by the New Black Panthers and others on scene in Sanford, Fla. that the White House get involved, Obama jumped into the fight."

I'm kind of appalled that this is even considered a "fight." A guy stalked and murdered an innocent kid. Reminds me of the time many years ago when a guy I was seeing turned violent on me and I tried to tell. I was met with "It's not my business if you two got into a fight."

ttommyunger March 23, 2012 at 2:16 pm

So, does Tucker use jelly or syrup when tossing Boyle's salad? Just askin…

hagajim March 23, 2012 at 2:16 pm

Al Shartpon? Doesn't a shart come with Santorum?

johnnymeatworth March 23, 2012 at 2:19 pm

Wow, is it 1968 already?

GreatChristiano March 23, 2012 at 2:20 pm

O’bammer just gets punked by everybody; he should learn we would respect him more if he stpos doing what everyone tells him to do, dang nambit!

Whose watching the neighborhood with Zimmie hiding???

Lionel[redacted]Esq March 23, 2012 at 2:21 pm

Can we just give Tucker the WIN! for the Election Cycle, and go back to ignoring him?

GortRay March 23, 2012 at 2:23 pm

That shitball zimmerman was out hunting that night, plain and simple. He was gunnin' for an unwelcome minority. And as he was non-black and living in a gated commune in the south he assumed he would get away with it. And apparently he was correct in that assumption.

glamourdammerung March 23, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Exactly.

Chasing someone with a gun is not self-defense. The word for it is "hunting".

glamourdammerung March 23, 2012 at 2:33 pm

More like "Obama did not comment on a case that has some disturbing aspects because some asshole like Tucker would make it into yet another 'controversy' to indulge in yet more poutrage".

anniegetyerfun March 23, 2012 at 2:44 pm

The Panthers, Sharpton and other left-wing political figures on scene invoked the racial components of the fight, with some alleging this was a “hate crime” and others claiming this was “racism perpetrated by violence.”

Yes, unlike Trayvon's murderer, who used the sweet, loving term "coon" to describe his victim. You know, raccoons! Cute, little cuddly creatures. Clearly the Panthers are the racists here, by trying to drag this animal-loving shooter's name throught the mud.

sullivanst March 23, 2012 at 2:46 pm

I'll take Common Logical Fallacies for $400, please Alex.

What is post hoc ergo propert hoc?

dadanarchist March 23, 2012 at 2:53 pm

Trayvon Martin's murder demonstrates that a "New" Black Panthers would probably be a good idea (the actual NBP is a laughable shell of an organization whose only function is to haunt the dreams of FOX news bobbleheads).

Doktor StrangeZoom March 23, 2012 at 3:11 pm

OK, so in 2012 we're actually having freakouts about Black Panthers, the Weather Underground, communists, and the threat posed by women using birth control?

Shit, I hate these continuity reboots. JJ Abrams, you have a LOT to answer for.

GOPCrusher March 23, 2012 at 4:41 pm

Make love. Not war.

Doktor StrangeZoom March 23, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Groovy.

Wile E. Quixote March 24, 2012 at 10:51 pm

I'm hoping that President Obama will make "Acid, Amnesty and Abortion" his 2012 platform because I could totally vote for that.

Steverino247 March 23, 2012 at 3:34 pm

You know, if I was a black man who had somehow survived to age 50 without being shot and I was an office holder of a position where I knew people wanted me shot so badly they would encourage target shooters to pretend it was me they were shooting at, well, I'd have an opinion about shooting black men. I wouldn't need anyone to tell me to have one.

It's a good thing stupid doesn't burn because if it did, this would cause third degree burns.

Toomush_Infer March 23, 2012 at 3:40 pm

So, Tucker – a young black man wearing a hoodie and Skittles gets followed and killed for being suspicious in a white neighborhood, and all these folks are trying to gin up a "racial"aspect to this?….is that what you're saying?…..is it?….well, what could they be thinking?…

flageek March 23, 2012 at 5:43 pm

This isn't new… it's far from new. There has been a concerted effort by the frightened, old, rich white guys to come out on top when they're officially out-numbered by the mud people (their term, not mine). It's why "Stand Your Ground" otherwise known as Lawful Night Riding is just a small part of disenfranchisement, voter suppression, and the prison industrial complex. Dictators, or want to be dictators/oligarchs need to keep the majority downtrodden, frightened for their very existence and powerless…. case in point, Afrikaner South Africa.

And, the population needs to be reduced, not our class, but all the others. Affordable, can't have that, Medicare and Medicaid, not that either. What's left will be desperate, improvised to a degree not seen since Edwardian England, and most important, beaten and tractable.
