Here Is How You Do Your Non-Apology Apology For Fried-Chicken-Related Racist Facebook Posts, GOP

Are you having a bummer of a day? Maybe work seems like it will never end, or maybe your lumbago is flaring, or maybe it’s just that a black man is president. In any of those cases, we have a hilarious Facebook post from the Rutland County, Vermont, GOP to make you feel better!

Just wanted to let you know — today I received my 2012 Social Security Stimulus Package. It contained two tomato seeds, cornbread mix, a prayer rug, a machine to blow smoke up my butt, 2 discount coupons to KFC, an “Obama Hope & Change” bumper sticker, and a “Blame it on Bush” poster for the front yard. The directions were in Spanish. Watch for yours soon.

Hah hah hah chortle wheeze KLUNK. WE DIED. But it seems that some stupid sensitive Democrat pantywaists found this, for some reason, “offensive.” Well, here, thanks to the Rutland County, Vermont, GOP, is how to apologize to them!

I totally regret that some members of the Democratic party* were offended** by the satirical post*** on this page yesterday. There were some that commented on the post that they did not see how the possibly inflammatory comments were anything other political commentary. This page is not the original author**** and the intent was to show the author’s frustration at the current economic situation***** that he/she finds themselves in.

I realize now that there are those that were deeply offended and for that I am very saddened****** and I will make sure that our editoral process will result in posts to our pages that reflect the spirit of good natured political discussions. My hope is that we can get back to the critical dialog necessary to move Vermont and the US back towards economic prosperity.*******

Put on your Parsing Hats, everyone, we got Text to consider!

* Only pussy Democrats

** were “offended” — the term of art in every non-apology apology, viz., I’m sorry your face got in the way of my fist.

*** Dudes. Satire. Like Mark Twain, Joseph Heller, and Jonathan Swift!

**** Fuck you, we didn’t even write it, so why are you getting all up on us just for distributing it?

***** You know who else was “frustrated”? No, not him: this gal! Frustration turns people into unfunny, blithe racists. Science fact!

****** Oh right, saddened. But still not actually “sorry.”

******* Why won’t those other people have a proper dialogue while we are making fried chicken jokes at them? Is it because they are on welfare? PROBABLY.

Oh, the other thing you will want to do is delete your youface page entirely, apparently. We guess that’s step two.

Non-apology apology, you’ve been PARSED! [TheGrio]

  • Texan_Bulldog

    I don't understand the cornbread mix reference but I do know, based on the size of a lot of the Tea Party folks on Rascals, that they've never met a piece of fried chicken they didn't like.

    • Gopherit

      Maybe saying watermelon would be too obvious?

    • sati_demise

      or biscuits or gravy or french fry or …….oops, got to go !

    • Warwhatgoodfor

      get it with some of that sausage gravy with fried chopped up chicken livers mixed in, and you are in 500 pound can't walk without a scooter waiting for my arteries to finally give out heaven. Yumm!!

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Yeah…I guess they were being tasteful and not racist with that stuff. Now had they included refernces to grape soda, grape koolaid and filing for bankruptcy that would have been obvious. You know, it's getting to the point where getting pissed at Republicans for their forays into offensive racism is a lot like getting upset at a Palin for smearing shit on his/her face. It's going to happen…it's who they are so instead of trying to make them apologize so Faux Nuuuuz can give them handjobs of consolation…we should just print these out and distribute them into affected minority and non-racist white communities. After they lose election after election everywhere but Texas, Mississippi, Louisianna and Alabama they'll fucking learn to stop being pigfucking white supremacists.

  • http://wonkette.com Chill_Bill

    Keep fucking that KFC, GOPers. Hate and clogged arteries will catch up with you sooner or later…

    • sewollef

      Well of course, when KFC decided to 'rebrand' and drop the 'Fried' part of Kentucky Fried Chicken and shorten the whole name to its acronym, a screenwriter friend of ours suggested that they should just call it, Kentucky 'F' Chicken.

      Thereby leaving it open for people to choose the most suitable word to replace the 'F'.

      It was funny when he said it at the time.

  • nounverb911

    I've been growing tomatoes since before Reagan went senile.

    • OneDollarJuana

      The only good tomatoes any more are those you grow yourself because Republican farmers.

    • http://wonkette.com Chill_Bill

      Since the mid-seventies then?

        I was guessing 1942.

          I think it actually happened after he defeated the Nazis.

        • flamingpdog

          Or 1492.

          INDIA! INDIA! INDIA!

    • emmelemm

      Yeah, that's the only part I didn't quite get. Wouldn't watermelon seeds have been more apt?

      • http://wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

        You would think, but tomatoes are red, like all good Communist, and they are fruit, meaning they are teh ghayez, and eaten by Italians, meaning they are loved by organized crime. Plus, like Obama, I'm sure they originated in Kenya.

        Don't know what this has to do with a prayer rug, though, but it is hard to keep up with today's racist.

        • Crank_Tango

          Worse, didn't they actually come up illegally from south america? Tomatoes, I mean.

    *put items in a bowl. cover it in gravy. Melt some cheese.* Rutland County GOP will eat that shit up.

    *take your insulin*

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Yes and make sure you include frying it all in Crisco first…they'll eat that shit faster than Chris Christie would eat a triple chocolate heart attack guaranteed on a stick piece of fried dogshit…or something…I mixed up my metaphors trying to consider what a gross pig Governor Moobsie is…

        Seriously, I always loved KFC coleslaw. The rest, not so much.

        • Barb

          I have the Top Secret Recipe book just so I could learn how to make their slaw. The recipe really nails it.

            Do share!

          • Barb

            * 8 cups finely diced cabbage (about 1 head)
            * 1/4 cup diced carrot
            * 1/3 cup granulated sugar
            * 1/2 teaspoon salt
            * 1/8 teaspoon pepper
            * 1/4 cup milk
            * 1/2 cup mayonnaise
            * 1/4 cup buttermilk
            * 1 1/2 tablespoons white vinegar
            * 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
            ————————————–
            If you have tarragon vinegar it is perfect.

        • http://wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

          KFC makes one of the better mass consumption slaws out there. I also think Ivar's does a good job. When ever you eat something greasy, it is just nice to have the slaw to clear the pallet.

  • Blunderthing

    Yeah, It's getting harder and harder to politely say, "Fuck! There's a nigger in the White House! Get yer white ladies in the root cellar and get out yer torches!" Of course, in the past, the apology for that was: "I am sorry that some niggers find that dragging them out of their homes, throwing a rope over a limb and hanging them is offensive, but we certainly do not condone that this Wednesday at midnight near the big elm way far out in the country. Please do not be there wearing your hoods and carrying tar and feathers. We are god fearing people."

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Well…it's like Lee Atwater said…they can no longer say "N-Bomb, N-Bomb, N-Bomb" with the pitch and tone of the Bodysnatchers…that "backfires" so they have to try and be sneaky little racist shitheels and speak in code…forced busing, states rights and welfare queens, etc. The media is so fucking corrupt and chasing-its-own-tail dumb that they never trot out that little Lee Atwater clipping everytime some smug fuckface says "uppity" or whatever…which is truly a crime. That entire quote should be printed on a shirt and sold to enrage these pants pissers…

      • http://www.kalimao.blogspot.com MittBorg

        Could you give me a link to the quote? I have an idea for a tee shirt …

        • Willardbot9000_V2.5

          Okay, sure:

          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"

          Source: Wikipedia. You'd have to condense it, but that's pretty much how the GOP behaves politically in a nutshell.

  • http://wonkette.com/ FlownOver

    Lucky them – they inhabit a world in which this bafflegab "satirical post" is meaningful. To me it sounds like Sarah Palin on meth (i.e., it sounds like Sarah Palin.)

        • Madam Killjoy

          No, no, no… the banks are VICTIMS in this. The Community Reinvestment Act allowed those people who don't deserve loans to get them. It doesn't matter that the CRA came to be a mere 35 years ago and that it has zero to do w/ the housing bubble and the utter criminality of the mortgage industry. Those who got a loan they couldn't afford or didn't understand are at fault, not the banks, because for true wingers, it's about race, always. Even if the little guy is crushed in the process. I knew this country was racist, but it took Obama's election to show me just how bad it really is.

    Just wanted to let you know — today I received my 2012 Social Security Stimulus Package. It contained two tomato seeds, cornbread mix, a prayer rug, a machine to blow smoke up my butt, 2 discount coupons to KFC, an “Obama Hope & Change” bumper sticker, and a “Blame it on Bush” poster for the front yard. The directions were in Spanish. Watch for yours soon.

    That is the pithiest example of American White Folks Psychosis I have seen. Well-done, Mystery Author!

    • poorgradstudent

      The only thing missing was a hint of phobia over the effeminization/homonizaton of the Anglo-Saxon race, but the phrase "up my butt" comes kind of close.

    • Butch_Wagstaff

    Just wanted to let you know — today I received my 2012 Social Security Stimulus Package. It contained two tickets to The Book of Mormon, margarita mix, a college loan, a machine to blow orgasms up my twat, 2 oz of weed and a heathcare voucher, an “Obama Hope & Change” bumper sticker, and a “Blame it on Bush” poster for the front yard. The directions were translated for all Americans. Watch for yours soon.

      I feel robbed. I got my stimulus package here in Utah and all it had was a Book of Mormon and and 55 gallon drum full of something I can't identify from EnergySolutions. No instructions at all.

  • Callyson

    Hey, Mittens, here's your apology:

    I totally regret that some members of the Republican party* were offended** by the examination of Mitt Romney's business record*** in the media finally. There were some that commented on the that they did not see how the factual observations and calls for deeper inquiry were anything other political commentary…
    I realize now that there are those that were deeply offended and for that I am very saddened****** and I will make sure that our campaign will result in posts to our pages that reflect the spirit of tucking questions under the rug, or at least limiting discussion of them to a quiet room somewhere. My hope is that we can get rid of the Party of No so that we can finally do what is necessary to move the US back towards economic prosperity.*******

    OT, but BREAKING NEWS!!

    We are saved! This recession is destined to be over soon, now that the Bush Institute and Our Beloved MBA Ex-President have just now released their first book on the most Critical Issue of our Day – Economic Growth. With a forward by Bush 43 and a collection of the leading lights of Chicago School Economics, "The 4 % Solution: Unleashing the Growth America Needs" is sure to be a winner in Our National Conversation and a hit at the Republican Convention.

    Do not confuse this book with The Seven Per Cent Solution. This book is clearly a masterwork of economic theory not seen since Laffer published The Curve Theory.

    A snip from the review from Talkingpoints Memo: "…ideas floated in the book include: extending the Bush-era tax cuts, lowering the corporate tax rate and expanding the tax base." Now, that's new!

    The 4% Solution is being sold on Amazon Books.You can Get it Now! Sadly, no one has reviewed it yet.

    There's also a Twitter hashtag, #4percent should you want to join in on all the Trickley-Downy Fun

    • Native_of_SL_UT

    At some point, you would think that Conservatives would realize that their attempts to disguise their racism and hatred for all things non-Anglo-Saxon actually make things worse.

    • radio-of-owls

      We Yankees have a heroic vein of some of the most poisonous racism you've ever seen. But in some ways these attitudes seem more Hobbesian than our duller, simpler Southern brethren, because it's a war of all against all that is based as much on ethnicity as on 'race'/color. By the time I was eight, I could both identify your ethnic background and call you the relevant slur without batting an eye.

      It is curious though that these Vermontonians feel compelled to hate something they've never seen before. I wonder if they circulate hateful emails with cracks about anchor baby-ing, job stealing and drug lording in reference to chupacabras.

    Slightly O/T, from HuffyPo:

    The right-leaning National Review Online released an editorial Tuesday arguing that Romney may not be required legally to release his tax returns, but that at this point, he needs to do so anyway.
    "It is to President Obama's advantage to fight the election out over tactics and minutiae," the editors wrote. "By drawing out the argument over the returns, Romney is playing into the president's hands. He should release them, respond to any attacks they bring, and move on."

It contained a bill for two wars the government couldn't pay for, a Homeland Security department that doesn't work, and tax breaks for Mitt Romney and Company. Oh, yeah, and there was a nice letter saying that if I needed healthcare, abortion, or wished to practice my pagan Islamist homosexual religion that I could kiss his ass.

    I'd rather have tomato seeds.

    It contained two watermelon seeds, cornbread mix, a prayer rug, a
    machine to blow smoke up your ass and 10 coupons to KFC. The

    Somebody toned down the racism because it was too overt.

    Not sure why everyone is so surprised that Yankees can be rank racists. Vermont may come across as all hippy-like, but there are some for-real mountain folk in that particular neck of New England who don't cotton to the blah folks as much or more so than your Southern Cracker. Sometimes it's the very reason they live in such a white state. See, also, the popularity of the Confederate flag in some parts of Upstate NY.

    • 102415

      I used to wonder about the Upstate NY confederate flag thing plus that weird accent they like to use and then I found out there was a Union prison at Elmira. I think they just stayed put after the war. Binghamton was a huge KKK center in the 1920's.

      • Madam Killjoy

        I knew there was a Union prison at Elmira, but I never considered the possibility of the former inmates staying put. Interesting. The Klan was active Downstate as well. Racism, unfortunately, knows no state boundaries.

        And, yeah, that Upstate Southern Accent. Very confusing when first encountered.
