snitchin on his oral hygeineBarack Obama likes basketball, and so will hold a basketball-themed fundraiser. (Presumably he will do other stereotypically black things, like hold a massive rummage sale for his giant stockpile of old Alizé.) The Washington Free Bacon is covering this event by doing the responsible journalism the Lamestream Media won’t, and exposing all of the tall, rich black men who almost certainly have giant equipment … in their spacious homes for practicing basketball.

Politico reports that the Obama campaign has announced the “Obama Classic,” a fundraiser starring former and current NBA stars. Those announced to attend include failed baseball player Michael Jordan, “Ewing Theory” namesake Patrick Ewing, and anti-police activist Carmelo Anthony.

Hahaha, that’s cute how the greatest basketball player of all time is actually a failed baseball player! And how one of the greatest centers of all time is awful because he couldn’t win a championship with the Knicks, just like pretty much everyone ever! And how Carmelo Anthony is an “activist”! I mean, have you seen him on the court?

So lazy.

While best known for his disappointing stints with the Denver Nuggets and New York Knicks, Anthony has also taken up the mantle of the “stop snitchin’” movement, appearing in a video promoting drug use and encouraging those who are questioned by the police to refuse to “snitch” on drug dealers, murderers, and other criminals[.]

By “appearing in,” Free Bacon means “standing next to his idiot friend laughing hysterically because this is ridiculous.”

In one segment, Anthony stands on a street, wearing a red shirt and baseball hat and laughing while another man talks about life on the street, snitches and the NBA. Anthony, 20, doesn’t respond to any of the comments about violence, except to laugh.

Also, via Wikipedia, the Stop Snitchin’ videos actually helped catch corrupt police officers, because Carmelo Anthony is a Machiavellian genius.

The publicity of Stop Snitchin’ actually helped to identify several corrupt police officers in the Baltimore area such as former BPD officers William King and Antonio Murray who were sentenced to 315 and 139 years in prison, respectively, following an investigation caused by the DVD which identified the officers as drug traffickers.

Discount Bacon doesn’t stop there, though, oh, no. This is all a part of a grand conspiracy to make The Wire a reality on our streets.

Like President Obama, Anthony has declared his affection for The Wire, HBO’s critically acclaimed drug drama. An Obama donor recently hosted a controversial Wire-themed fundraiser for the president’s reelection campaign.

We are all millionaire athlete gay stick-up men now. #Obama2012

A hint to Carmelo Anthony: take a page from Ice-T and advocate shooting cops for freedom.

    When I heard this on NPR this morning my very first thought was about all the racist commenters (everywhere) and what they might say. Then I went back to bed and tried to snuff myself with my pillow. Thankfully, my weiner dog didn't want me to die and nuzzled in to find me.

  • ChernobylSoup

    I begrudgingly admire the "failed baseball player Michael Jordan" remark.

      as Childish Gambino aka Donald Glover says:
      'they said me rappin

      but that would make me MJ
      so motherfuck all y'all'

    • Come here a minute

      It only follows that if they call Obama a failed president they are calling him the most successful president ever.

    • BerkeleyBear

      The "Ewing Theory" drop (the idea that sometimes an otherwise awesome player can actually keep the rest of his team from achieving their highest potential) is an interesting attempt at crossover humor, but most Bill Simmons' readers probably would love the chance to be at any event with Ewing, MJ and Carmelo.

    I was a pro basketball player for nine years, made a couple million, and now live comfortably, and I support Obama. So I'll be at the party, too. It should be fun. Basketball was fun, I met a lot of girls, made a lot of money, and I now enjoy my two houses, one a beach house, three cars, beautiful model wife, and two kids, and two dogs (pure-bred, of course). So just because you play basketball and make a lot of money and live a comfortable life, that doesn't mean that you cannot support a Democrat for president! I also have a line of fashionable sportswear, a line of men's formal wear, a cologne, and a line of custom-made water bottles, travel mugs and coffee mugs. Joe Biden is a friend of mine, too. Obama and Biden are pretty good at pick-up basketball, too!

    "Controversial," in this article, couldn't be more redundant if it tried.

    I don't remember this kind of bitterness when non-blah incumbents held fundraisers, but that's probably what comes from being outside the Beltway.

  • Goonemeritus

    Why doesn’t Obama hold fundraisers with sports that are dominated by white people like Luge & Curling? Could it be he has a deep seated resentment of white people?

    • GunToting[Redacted]

      Duh, black people are afraid of cold weather. That's why you never see them skiing.

      • Negropolis

    • Biel_ze_Bubba

      Those may be the last sports that actually are dominated by white people. (And hockey, but that's awfully working-class.) Golf, cricket, and tennis got s(p)oiled years ago.

      There's always yachting, but there are about as many Democrats as blacks in yachting circles. It's hard to have a fundraiser with three guests, no matter how much you charge them.

        Don't quote the Liberal Bible to me. The only one that counts is the Conservative, Tea-Party Bible, which edits out all that lib claptrap that has snuck in over the years.

        The new version of Leviticus 19:33-34 is:

        And if a stranger sojourn with thee in your land, ye shall not vex him, unless he be black, or mexican, or any color really, other than lily white. Or if he be Muslim, and if he be not white, than he surely is Muslim.

        But the stranger that dwelleth with you shall be blamed for all your ills, and for taking your jobs, and deported, and there shall be no amnesty; for ye were strangers in the land of Egypt, but were still much better than those ragheads: I am the LORD your God.

And I felt badly — he looked like he was sort of in distress. And I said, 'Sir, here's a place.' And he said, 'That's a handicapped space.' I said, 'Oh I'm so sorry, I saw that Obama sticker and I thought you were mentally retarded."….
