Wingnuts Furious: Obama Hugged A White Guy

Scott Van Duzer, the charming beefy pizzeria owner who gave President Barack Obama a big ol’ bear hug the other day, says that he has been targeted for retribution by angry Republicans who are boycotting his Fort Pierce, Florida, restaurant. He was also the target of a brief war on Yelp, between negative and positive reviews, most of which came, of course, from “reviewers” who have probably never even been to Florida for chrissakes and what is WITH people anyway?

Van Duzer, a Republican who voted for Obama in 2008, rode his bicycle over 1000 miles from Florida to Washington DC earlier this year to raise money for a charity he founded to promote blood donations in St. Lucie County, Florida. Obama scheduled the campaign visit in part because of Van Duzer’s civic-mindedness. The president-hugging pizza man says that, in the wake of his moment on Youtube,

“People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant…There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”

The possible boycott of a guy who hugged a filthy leftist follows in the wake of momentary business surges for a cupcake-selling guy who refused a campaign visit from Joe Biden and an asshole baker lady who proudly told the Poors that their filthy food stamps are not good enough to purchase her fancy cakes. Oh, and there was something about the deep-seated desire of wingnuts to show support for homophobic deep-fried chicken sandwiches, too.

We are planning to start a Facebook petition in support of Scott Van Duzer. That should set everything right.

Update: PayPal linky for the Van Duzer foundation. Also, “Presidident”? How did we miss that? Fixed!

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • Mojopo

    Count me in – this poor guy is getting hammered on Yelp.

    • anniegetyerfun

      The liberals, who p0wn Yelp, have stepped up and given him approximately 7 million positive reviews.

      • Mojopo

        I see that now – very pleased! Last night it was ugly. Thanks, Internet, for being less evil.

    • sullivanst

      Although, the backlash has kicked in – now showing a five star average on almost 3,000 reviews, apparently only 2 of which predate the wingnut freakout.

    • SecretMuslin

      We should order pizzas from this guy's shop and have them sent to the nearest Obama phone banks.

      • Geminisunmars

        That's a really great idea. I was initially thinking of ordering some and having them delivered, but they'd probably get cold by the time they got to Denver.

      • Doktor Zoom

        Just don't try that with an iPhone. I hear they're really hard to dial.

  • sbj1964

    Now that's what you call Bromance!

  • Kid_Charlemagne

    A wingnut told me his pizza sales help to fund the Red Brigades.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      I think you misheard "he sells pizzas with fun breadsticks"

  • Cleopatriot

    I did not know you could get pizza in Florida. Must be all those elderly New Yorkers that retire there.

  • Goonemeritus

    It’s only fair, I stopped eating in Saudi Arabia after their King kissed G.W.

    • Dimitrios_M

      Funny, had to stop eating for a while around then, too.

  • Texan_Bulldog

    Dude got hugged by a black guy. He better check for his wallet.

    • http://www.wonkette.com ChillBill

      I bet Barry paid with food stamps…and left no tip.

      • Texan_Bulldog

        I bet he also asked for 'motherf*ckin' iced tea'.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      Or, dude hugged a black guy. Probably had a record.

    • sbj1964

      I think Obama got to 2nd base?

    • OneDollarJuana

      Or, dude got hugged by a big, white guy. Now he smells like gunpowder and sweat.

    • tessiee

      And his bicycle.

    • horsedreamer_1

      Like an Albanian stealing Liam Neeson's daughter George W. Bush's watch?

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    Man, the right wing sucks.

    There's the problem in a nutshell. When liberals have a problem with a company or a person, we just boycott them but we don't go and savage them (at least not most of us). We just nobly stay away.

    These assholes, noooooooooooooooooo, that's not good enough! They have to grind him under shoe like he's a cockroach!

    Well, all I can say is, what goes around comes around and the next time it comes around, it will be you being ground underfoot.

    With votes. And I mean that literally.

    Let's take all fifty states back

    • BigSkullF*ckingDog

      Do we have to take all fifty states back? Couldn't we give a few to Mexico?

      • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

        Hey now! Bereft of Republicans, Texas could actually be pretty nice! At least the parts around Austin, Houston and maybe bits of Dallas.

        Besides, we need a national garbage dump.

        • BaldarTFlagass

          After Julian Castro's speech at the convention last week, I am going to shun you for leaving out San Antonio from your list.

          *shun*

          • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

            I'm not that familiar with Texas to know if he might be an outlier in SA. My apologies.

          • Isyaignert

            Yay! I'm going to San Antonio next month on vacation and will compliment the citizens on their fine mayor.

        • MissNancyPriss

          Can Austin be the garbage dump?

    • BigSkullF*ckingDog

      Also, I think you mean all 57 states. too.

      • Generation[redacted]

        Not without my teleprompterz!

    • Mittens Howell, III

      "Let's take all fifty states back"

      Rmoney's bringing it home for us.

      'kna! I'm in. Fired up and ready to go!

    • An_Outhouse

      if you don't have the right countertops, then shut your trap in public.

  • ChernobylSoup

    Good lord. The guy removed aborted fetus toppings from the menu. What else do these people want?

    • Boojum

      He did WHAT? Oh man, those were the best!

    • UnholyMoses

      But he left the halal embryos, so there's that …

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      So the pies now come with Legitimate Broccoli Rape?

      • HistoriCat

        With a nice big Rape Lemons into Lemonade.

    • OneDollarJuana

      Babs Bush left her jar at the restaurant, huh?

    • kittensdontlie

      Oh, I thought those were anchovies….

      • BaldarTFlagass

        My god, that bowling ball! It's my WIFE!!!

  • Kid_Charlemagne

    It's rumored that Obama told him to put arugula on his pies.

    • littlebigdaddy

      I love arugula on pizza! But that's because I'm a filthy hippie.

      • Kid_Charlemagne

        Agreed. Very common topping in Italy. But, considering conservatives ridicule anything that is more exotic than iceberg lettuce, you are, in fact, an effete, chardonnay-swigging communist.

    • tessiee

      it's funny because actual Italians eat arugula.

      • Geminisunmars

        Well, they are all commies too, you know.

  • anniegetyerfun

    That guy is so adorable. See? There are Republicans who aren't filled with hatred and vitriol. Remember when that was common-ish?

    • sullivanst

      Yeah, pretty sure the President was white at the time.

    • gullywompr

      No.

    • OneDollarJuana

      That would have been Eisenhower, a Teddy Roosevelt sort of Republican. Thought of the country first instead of his rich buddies. Probably being written out of Texas textbooks right now.

    • Crank_Tango

      Just goes to show that us libtards are the angry ones, or something.

    • kittensdontlie

      He is a saint and a true patriot.

    • http://loljazzcatz.blogspot.com/2012/06/introducing-bad-note-millstones-of-jazz.html Chet Kincaid_

      You're damn right he's a commonish!!1!1

    • HistoriCat

      I think the last Republican politicians not filled with hatred and vitriol retired or were primaried in 1994.

    • PsycWench

      My dad used to be like that. Now he's an Obama-hating wing nut. It makes me really sad, actually.

      • comrad_darkness

        I hear ya brother.

      • MissNancyPriss

        Is it a Fox New thing? Asking for research.

        • PsycWench

          Partly Fox and partly because he has these rightwing friends and relatives on Facebook that do a great job providing the false consensus effect.

    • AncienReggie

      The first person I ever heard actually use lugubrious in a sentence was a Republican. He was a great guy and a good friend who had read Wodehouse in his youth, used to take me sailing … but yeah, a Republican. Back then they weren't all either crazy as peach orchard boars or greedy rich bastards protecting their own. Of course, Tom's dead now, but not as dead as the Rockefeller Republicans.

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Yep…well, I've only been alive since the Raygun years and was a teenager when Newt and his gang of dickhead stooges took over so I've known such Republicans in my private life but have rarely seen them as elected officials. I have read about the dreaded Northeastern liberal Republicans who helped pass the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and helped Nixon pass the EPA, Affirmative Action, etc. I know LaGuardia was a VERY liberal Republican who absolutely loved the New Deal. This bunch we have now all hail from what was a sliver of lunatics like the Hunts that Eisenhower once derided as "their numbers are negligible and they are stupid"…then the New Right came along…and now we have these prancing jackasses…

      • finallyhappy

        Only alive since the Raygun years and I was already a federal employee when his administration did a witchhunt on projects at my agency. We somehow couldn't find a lot of the files they were looking for(pre-computer and huge storage rooms and the people doing the witch hunt were pretty stupid.

  • SexySmurf

    "Hey, where are the white men at?"

  • MacRaith

    You could have just stopped the headline at "Wingnuts Furious: Obama". What excuse they're giving for their fury today is immaterial.

    • RedStatePinko

      Or just "Wingnuts Furious." The Obama is implied.

      • anniegetyerfun

        You might get away with merely "wingnuts" at this point. All they can do is have cardiac events over this shit, anyway.

  • SpeedoFart

    Remember kids: It's patriotic to hate on them poorz and leftists. Hugging a Democrat is downright seditious!

    • sullivanst

      Fuck those nation-dividing commie bastards! The country should be united… in hating all Democrats and also all Republicans who ever say nice things about Democrats!

    • Mojopo

      I upfisted SpeedoFart, for the name!

      • SpeedoFart

        Awe, thanks! *luv!*

    • LibertyLover

      Dang… who do I report my spouse to? Spouse insists on hugging me…

    • Willardbot9000_V2.5

      Sharing AIR with a Democrat is treason! Besides, what's with this "sharing" anyway, you some kinna commonist? Ghey? Aborted fetus evolutionist? Huh?

      By the way, that name is awesome…I have a sneaking suspicion it's related to Chris Christy visiting the jersey shore…but that's hilarious.

  • http://www.wonkette.com ChillBill

    Scott, how many of those trolls will ever get to hug a President? Exactly.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      I seriously doubt I would have hugged W, except maybe to choke the life out of him like an anaconda.

      • Jus_Wonderin

        You have those thoughts too?

        • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

  • SexySmurf

    Van Duzer, a Republican who voted for Obama in 2008, rode his bicycle over 1000 miles from Florida to Washington DC earlier this year to raise money for a charity he founded to promote blood donations in St. Lucie County, Florida.

    Do you think we can get Wingnuts to start boycotting blood transfusions?

    • sullivanst

      They're suckers for Biblical snake-oil salesmen, so there's a chance they could all be converted to Jehovah's Witnesses. That'd do the trick.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      It's not like they have blood to begin with, the bloodless bastards.

    • OKthennext

      You get a really bad reaction from GOP-positive blood.

      Giggle.

  • mavenmaven

    I fear a "stand your ground" resolution to this story, on grounds of contact miscegnation.

  • SoBeach

    Even the republicans I know realize that the right has completely Lost Its Shit.

    Some may disagree, but I think the solution is merciless ridicule. These people aren't going to change their minds. Best we can do is make it so normal people don't want to be associated with them in any way.

    • Isyaignert

      "…merciless ridicule." Sounds fun and man, oh man, do they ever make it easy!

    • eaglewon

      it'll be self destruction. When you put out that high degree of hate and racism, it comes back to you, seasoned and much more deadly. But their too stupid to understand that. Blinded by rage.

  • Baconzgood

    And if the left would have done this fox would be going ape.

  • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

    I just threw the guy's foundation a few bucks, and not just because of the uproar. There's always a need for blood.

    • IndianaKevin

      It is now, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!

  • MinAgain

    Is there an address on that charity website? 'Cause I feel like writing someone a check and putting "Have you hugged a president today?" on the memo line.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      As a matter of fact, yes. There is

    • Doktor Zoom

      Pay Pal donations

      Snail Mail address

      • UW8316154

        Would you please put this up at the end of the story? I gave the guy some money, and think it woudl be awesome if people here showed our support by doing what we can – even if it's just $5 of something.

        • Doktor Zoom

          Sure, why not! It's linked in the text, but no harm adding it at the end.

    • MinAgain

      Thanks for the info. I sent them a couple of bucks. I would have given blood in his honor, but I just donated over the Labor Day weekend at D*C.

      In Colombia.

    • tessiee

      OK, not to be TOO much of a grammar nazi, but if you mean:
      "Where was the Secret Service? Rounding up hookers?"
      Then the answer is, Probably.
      If you mean:

    "There’s no middle line anymore, and that’s exactly what’s wrong with our country right now.”

    The middle line you refer to Mr. Pizza Man, has moved and been pushed so drastically to the right in the past thirty years, and that is what's wrong in this country.

    Of course, with a name like Big Apple and its New York connotations, I'm sure that most Republicans wouldn't set foot in there anyway.

      But shouldn't there be "an important announcement regarding your Wokette?"

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      Maybe he tried to keep up with Trix at the conventions and checked into rehab?

    • horsedreamer_1

      Writing for Grantland? Meaning, Jim likes his Cali based editors to be big boobs, not have big boobs?

    • CapnFatback
    • fauxcault

      Yeah, and notice he's changed the description to "Ex Gawker/Wonkette, current Guardian/Salon/Grantland contributor." I've been hoping for an explanation for why he's left, myself. Because I'm hopelessly naive about Wonkette's behind-the-scenes goings-on, I can't tell how much of the Rebecca-was-on-acid stuff to take at all seriously (the whole "Jim is probably going to quit because of how we left him all day yesterday and then ran out of battery and never checked in and were just on acid all night like a fucking hippie 17-year-old girl…" from the "Dave Weigel is a Crazy Bitch" post); and thus I don't know if Jim's tweets are just playing along with that narrative (e.g. "I'm still sad that Gary Johnson wasn't able to borrow Wonkette's convention pass last night from the editor on acid whose phone was dead") or if there was indeed some sort of falling out between them. I'm guessing it's all for fun and there's no actual drama there, but it'd be nice to know what the story is then.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I love that the first photo on the Yelp page is of the owner hugging the prez. Excellent.

    • OneDollarJuana

      It's a user-feedback site. Seems pretty good for finding motels and diners. I use it for trip planning. It's also entertaining to read the long-winded reviews from prissy, self-involved whiners who will spend half an hour writing a scathing screed against some very good diner because they saw a fly in the parking lot.

      • Jus_Wonderin

        In my defense, it was one huge, motherfuckin' fly.

        • Steverino247

          HELP ME!

      You really don't want to know. It's where people go to complain subconsciously about their botched first dates and their miserably petty lives by blaming everything on a waiter who forget to bring them water or a plate of Kung Pao Chicken that didn't have enough peanuts.

  • http://wonkette.com OldWhiteLies

    One wonders if there has been, over the last few years, a mathematically and clinically demonstrable increase in exhaustion deaths resulting from overindulgence in [faux] outrage among a certain US demographic. Seems likely.

    One wonders if it can further be demonstrated that this overindulgence in said [faux] outrage has indeed thus hastened said US demographic's worst fear of becoming a minority in said US.

    One sees a true irony. One smiles. This one actually looks forward to aforementioned minority status – especially if above posit proves correct. Tee hee, also.

    • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

      That's the weird thing about this.

      Apart from hugging the Prez, the guy could easily fit in with any number of evangelical fundie nutbags: he raised funds for a local ministry, Tim Tebow (!) endorses him, he seems to be the type to go to church every Sunday and twice on Christmas.

      Like I said, fit in with any fundie nutbag, except he gets it and realizes life isn't about hating people, it's about doing the right thing with your neighbors and community.

      • Biel_ze_Bubba

        Yeah, well "doing the right thing" is now the wrong thing with these fucktards. They want their TV, radio, books, magazines, schools and "news" — and now their pizza — to be 100% rightwing fundie bullshit.

        The Salafists can out-crazy Jones by a country mile… they're the nutjobs who've been vandalizing cemeteries in Libya, because all monuments are heresy. I say we match 'em up with Jones' crew and the Westboro Baptist cretins, four at a time, in a steel cage match. Last one standing moves on to the next round.

    I guess they're also refusing to give blood donations since this is Scott's big cause and why Obama stopped by for the visit? Of course, donating anything sounds "communist" to these clowns….

      Giving blood away is just plain unamercian, dammit. That shit's worth money.

      Or if Bamz had hugged this guy's wife? Good thing some hemp products are hard to find!

  • Steverino247

    I am fortunate in that most of my Republican friends are like this guy. They know I'm an atheist, vote Democratic, etc., but they're reasonable people who respect that I have a different point of view. They're also the same guys who called me within 30 minutes of Sarah Palin being named as VP candidate, asking "Tell me about Obama." They're out there, guys. They really are.

    • Geminisunmars

      So, what did they say about Ryan?

      • Steverino247

        Something along the lines of

        "What the fuck are they thinking?"

        "I really want to vote Republican, but there's none running."

        "I could have voted for Huntsman, but then the crazies took over."

        It amuses me deeply (which I take GREAT pains to conceal) when they blast their own party's candidates as being un-electable extremists incapable of putting the needs of the country first over some insane ideology.

        • Geminisunmars

          Well maybe someday, when the nutbaggers are fizzled out (please please be soon) they might be able to return to some sort of functionality. But until Rove, Cheney, and Norquist are dead and buried (with votes, presumably) this isn't likely to happen. I hope the sane ones will vote for Bamz, or at least just stay home.

        If they hurt someone, we don't use votes.

    So the fastest way to anger teabaggers is to simply be a decent person?

    That sure is telling.

  • mrchokeys

    I have to admit that the republicans are making Obama look good. It's almost as if someone wants them to. It's still a one party state, and the core neocon agenda advances without regard to which "party" is in power. The nature of the political arguments have taken on the sad quality of slaves debating which overseer will be more generous with the food rations, and more sparing with the whip.

  • Gleem McShineys

    Now I have to cross my fingers that Paypal doesn't do a wikileaks and decide to freeze his funds.

    As a child, it was clear to me that a lot of kids were dumb. I didn't hate them, it was just an obvious fact. In my teen years I became aware that it was prejudicial to voice that, though, so I tried to be more tolerant.

    Now I DO hate them. Especially today (9/11). The problem isn't the 1%, it's the 80+% who believe the 1%.

  • Biel_ze_Bubba

    I cannot wait to see what national publicity, plus this guy's winning personality, plus the asshattery of the wingnutz, does for his foundation. Absolutely the best outcome would be him thanking the nutters for bringing him a shitload of money. And selling a shitload of pizza, too, also.
