Romney Camp Mau-Maued, Savaged Over Adviser’s Innocent ‘Black People Don’t Understand’ To Brit Paper

Anticolonial is anticolonialHere is a question. Why doesn’t Bablack Obamblack understand the U.S.-Britain “Special Relationship is special”? Is it because he is black?

In remarks that may prompt accusations of racial insensitivity, one [anonymous Romney advisor] suggested that Mr Romney was better placed to understand the depth of ties between the two countries than Mr Obama, whose father was from Africa.

“We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special,” the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have”.

May it prompt accusations of racial insensitivity, The Telegraph? May it really?

Well that is a load of BALLS. Everybody knows the reason Barack Obama doesn’t understand the “Special Relationship is special” is because he keeps giving such shitty gifts to the Queen.

(If we may pour out a little of our drink on the ground for the so-canned social secretary Desiree Rogers, we do wonder: since they hired that awesome gay dude instead, can we surmise that our gifts to foreign leaders have stopped being really, truly, embarrassingly sucky? Someone in Washington please ‘splain us in the comments: was present picking part of the social secretary’s job, as per our assumption? Surely it wasn’t Michelle herself picking out passive-aggressive piles of sad?)

Anyway, we will be sure to remind Madeleine Albright and Henry Kissinger and, uh, other Jews and Poles and Mexicans and Cossacks and Chinamen that only Anglo-Saxon people understand why we have to lick the Queen’s dick every time she rolls over. Also, somebody should tell all those black dudes in Britain that unnamed Romney advisors don’t think they’re British. Soon we shall be as beloved throughout the world as we ever were under Bush II — THE BUSHENING. Can’t wait!

    I bet President Romney would tie Tony Blair to the roof of Air Force One.

    • sullivanst

      Tony Blair would then explain how he couldn't ask not to be tied to the roof of Air Force One, because that might compromise his ability to ask not to be tied to the roof of Air Force One at some indeterminate point in the future.

      Someone on HuffyPo who claimed to be a British American (could be, but on HP you never know given how many crackpot commenters are there) got huffy about how we Americans don't understand the term Anglo Saxon, that he was proud to be an Anglo Saxon, blah blah blah. Yeah, well, we all know that using that particular term in American politics has a very different meaning, buddy…

      ETA: that commenter is still trying to say "it's a British phrase, not an American one, and Romney used it quite correctly." Yeah, keep telling yourself that…the rest of us see straight through him…

      • sullivanst

        Yeah, well, it's not a term I heard much while living in England, but when it was deployed it was mostly used either by or in reference to overt racists.

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

          I probably heard it a lot more than you did, growing up, being on one of those far-flung posts of Empire surrounded by topee-wearing louts. But by the time I was grown, the term had fallen out of favour.

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

      "Because we kicked their limey asses twice (and then left them alone) and then saved their limey asses twice. Seems like they ought to be giving us gifts for hell sake."

      Ouch…. almost true though. Except, the US was 2 years late to WWII and nearly 3 years late to WWI [kick off was 1914, not 1917].

      By the end of which, the UK had suffered 2.5 million dead and wounded — or 3.5% of the population. France had 5.9 million dead and wounded — or over 10% of the population. (A huge loss of manpower that took more than a generation to recover from, so yes, we needed help midway through WWII.)

      By comparison, the US suffered 320,000 dead and wounded… or 0.25% of the population.

      By 1918, Europe had lost 16 million men, with over 21 million injured. Then came the Flu, which claimed another 50 million worldwide. I'm surprised there was anyone left by 1920.

      'Saving our ass' seems a little cruel, no…?

        You see, that's the efficient way to win wars for other people: hide behind your oceans while they all kill each other, then sweep in to enjoy the spoils of hegemony for 40-50 years. U.S. of A. is practically the Bain of War!

    • belgium88

      By "kicked their limey asses" do you mean "were successful due to a number of fortunate incidents not least ongoing turmoil in Europe that prevented full British deployment to the American Colonies"? And by "twice" do you mean "once", since the War of 1812 ended in stalemate?

      Also American intervention into WWI wasn't that big a deal, though their (incredibly late) intervention in WWII was greatly appreciated.

      History is complicated I know, try having almost 2,000 years of it instead of a couple hundred.

  • sullivanst

    Is Romney's flunky really trying to imply that an ex-colonial can't understand US-UK relationships?

    Really?

    REALLY?!!

    • prommie

      No no no, he's trying to imply that Obama's a NIGGER!

      • sullivanst

        Oh. I didn't realize the Romney campaign had hired Michael Richards. I should've guessed.

        • prommie

          Its not Michael Richards, but they are quoting him all the time: "look at the nigger." Pretty much the message Sununu was sending too.

          • FakaktaSouth

            EW stop saying that word you are making me squidgy for real. Well, not for real, I am NOT UNPLEASANTLY ANYTHING you hear? But still. It makes my teeth hurt.

          • prommie

            I hate to sugarcoat what they are doing. That is exactly the message they are sending, that crude and hateful and Lee Atwater-y nasty. Just exactly what Michael Richards said. It should make people's teeth hurt when they see it.

          • FakaktaSouth

            I understand, truly. Jarring literary devices are some of my favorite tools. It's just, I don't know, it is so much worse down here if you were a kid that was NOT of a fucking redneck, racist, backwater, trailer trash upbringing, that it's like touching fire. Makes me jumpy.

          • prommie

            Believe it or not, "boy" makes me jumpier. The N-word (ok, no more) is naked hate, "boy" is just cold superiority, doesn't even confer the dignity of telling someone you hate them.

          • sullivanst

            I'm struggling to understand this word "jumpy" where I fully expected to see "stabby".

          • prommie

            Its southern for "skeevy."

          • FakaktaSouth

            That's exactly what I am trying to say – it's not just a word that makes me really really murderously ragey, cause it does, it also scares me. It's reeeeeeeeally a Pavlovian reaction – it is "in your face" terrible when it is SUCH a big freaking deal around here. The "sayers" and the "don't sayers" and the divisions with white people and racists and black people and all the hatey gross stuff. It's just a gross under-current sometimes.

          • prommie

            And then there are the compound words involving "-rigged," "-rich," "-chasers," and "-toes" which can slip out of even non-sayers. Its bad, yes.

          • Boojum

He thought the definition of species should be changed to accommodate his world view. It took me more than a year to get him off my grad committee. The other faculty couldn't believe a science prof would say something like that. He finally said it to one of the other profs and was forced to retire.

      Their first Olympics squad since 1948, I believe…

      • superdave

        Yeah, but they just got in because they're the host country. It's the Olympics version of affirmative action.

  • randcoolcatdaddy

    Mitt Romney should know about special relationships with other countries. He outsourced enough jobs to them…

    “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have”.
    Did Romney or his unnamed aide fight for King and Country? Did he later join in the insurgency against his colonial overlords:

    … Onyango worked as a mission cook and as a local herbalist.[63] He joined the King's African Rifles[65] during World War I.

    In 1949, Onyango spent at least 6 months in Kamiti Prison. He was probably tried in a magistrates' court on charges of political sedition or membership of a banned organisation, but the records do not survive, because all such documentation was routinely destroyed in British colonies after six years. He was tortured to extract information about the growing insurgency.

    I don't get the impression Romney has any coherent foreign policy ideas whatsoever. Larrison consistently ridicules Romney and his neocon foreign policy advisers. At any point I expect to hear references to "Munich", "unconditional surrender" and something along the lines of how Iran is the greatest threat we have faced. Or maybe it is Syria. Or somewhere.

      "I don't get the impression Romney has any coherent foreign policy ideas whatsoever."

      He sends other countries a buttload of American jobs; he probably figures that's good enough.

  • Guppy

    There's nothing more anti-American than a possibly anti-colonial bent.

    OK. Obama vs. Elizabeth, one on one hoops. Winner takes the N. Sea oil.

      Too soon late, most of that's already been extracted.

    Is it just me or does anyone else think of the 70s actor John Saxon when you hear the term "Anglo Saxon"

    • docterry6973

      Who is a Brooklyn Italian, and so knows nothing about England either.

  • tessiee

    "he keeps giving such shitty gifts to the Queen"

    Which at least raises the question of what would be a good gift to give the Queen. I mean, she's probably already got a lot of books, right?

    • viennawoods13

      She'd probably appreciate a good bottle of gin.

    • prommie

      She has a "piper" who wakes her up in the morning by playing outside her bedroom window. Maybe a harpist to accompany the piper?

      • tessiee

        Are you seriously telling me that Queenie has…
        A PIPER AT THE GATES OF DAWN???

        BEST.

    Why do the Brits want RMoney? Because the founding of The Church of latter Day Saints makes the founding of the Anglican Church look sane.

    Yep, pissing off Irish-Americans is always a sure-fire winner in presidential elections.

  • vulpes82

    What's funny is that Queen Lizzie II, Sovereign God-Empress of Albion, Immortal Iron-Fisted Tyrant of the British Isles, is more German and Scottish than Anglo-Saxon.

    • TribecaMike

      My Cockney step-brother calls her "that nice German lady."

      • vulpes82

        To be fair, she's also half-Scottish/English aristocratic melange. Between the Queen Mum, Diana, and now Kate, we might actually get an ENGLISH(WO/MAN) on the throne by the end of the century!

    Liberals taking it out of context? Then would you 'splain to me what the fuck is the proper context? Cause from over here where I'm spitting in your soup, your comment is beyond insulting.

    While you're at it, don't forget to have Mittbog preach American Exceptionalism to that Eurotrash throughout his visit.

    • Generation[redacted]

      Yes, the real context is YOU DIDN'T BUILD THAT.

    It's good that Romney reminds us of how the WASPs should run everything, by right.

    Seeing as how the Brits opposed the slave trade before it was fashonable in those states now labelled "leans Romney" I'd say Obama understands better than they think.

    Assuming they think, of course.

    Does anybody in the Romoney campaign realize the Queen is part gerry (Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, House of Wettin)?

    In remarks that may prompt accusations of racial insensitivity,

    Oh, those Brits, and their propensity for understatement.

    Oh WAIT, they said that because this is a shitcakes Murdoch tabloid, and that phasing was more or less intended to blunt any criticisms by pre-emptively crying "RACE CARD!!!". Never mind, then.

    Only lithe and winsome RAF widows desperate for lost embraces, who meet trumpet-playing Negro Army Yanks enjoying the status of free men in Europe, both cautiously intrigued, then jitterbugging with abandon in the ballroom, dispatching a craven Nazi spy, and finally clinging to each other for safety from the London air-raid, his strong and swift vessel at last plowing her English Channel, understand the Special Relationship.

    What's so great is that this trip is supposed to demonstrate Mitt's ease with foreign affairs.

    Let's review: he meets with the soon-to-be-outgoing PM Cameron, he goes to fundraisers by ex-pat bankers and pro-Israelis, and he attends the opening ceremony of the Olympics. Whew! He'll need a vacation after all that heavy lifting. This foreign policy-making is hard!

    Heaven help us if his dressage horse beats out the Queen's. Ann will be trying on tiaras at Harrods.

  • arihaya

    Obama is very much Anglo-Saxon, his mother is a Dunham who surely could trace her ancestry back to Hengist and Horsa.

  • paulabflat

    anyone think mitt's going to get a high-falutin', sit down royal dinner with the queen and all of her lackeys?

    will the queen be presenting ann romney with any family heirloom jewelry?

    suck on it, mitt! your horse has a better chance.

    the queen likes horses. more importantly, the queen likes dogs. think she don't know what you did to your dog?
