IT'S JUST HOW HE LOOKS  10:31 am September 26, 2012

Virginia GOP Group Definitely, Definitely Not Racist

by Rich Abdill

"Commentary"There are probably, somewhere, very reasonable members of the contemporary GOP who are genuinely interested in improving political discourse in a way that is constructive, well-reasoned, and responsible. You could find them, if you looked.

A tip: Don’t bother searching in Mecklenburg County, Virginia.

Turns out, the people running the local GOP outfit there are a smidge… racially insensitive. Not in the “Suggest that his brownness indicates he is less fit for college/the presidency/America in general” way, either — in that way where they post pictures of the president wearing a Nobel Peace Prize on a giant gold chain.

From the Washington Post:

“These kinds of images have no place in political discourse — period,” said Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia. “They are offensive, tasteless and should never have been posted anywhere, let alone a local unit’s Facebook page. The Republican Party of Virginia condemns this sort of imagery in the strongest possible terms. I am in the process of contacting our Mecklenburg County unit to inform them that this is unacceptable behavior from any local unit associated with our party.”

A moment of detached, objective analysis: If the party of famous, confirmed slur-slinger George “Macaca” Allen is saying you’re being kind of racist, you’re probably being extraordinarily racist.

Even after the party called them out and the Post was like “whoaaa,” however, they haven’t taken any of the pictures down. And — surprise! — the chairman isn’t going to, because America.

R. Wallace “Wally” Hudson, chairman of the committee, was surprised to hear from a reporter that anyone had taken offense.

“If that group is that sensitive, I’m sorry, they’re just not human,” he said, chuckling. “It’s not American. If they’ve got a problem with it, we’re not going to change what we do.”

Wait wait wait — “that group,” “just not human”? Who is “that group”? People? Black people? Why does Wally get to decide who is a homo sapien? Don’t worry. He keeps talking.

“We know our regular readers, who are good conservatives, they’re gonna get a kick out of it,” said Hudson, 55, a retired airline flight crew member who became chairman in May. “The rest of them, if they don’t want to see it, they don’t have to look at it. We don’t consider any of it racist.”

You hear that, Good Conservatives? If you’re not laughing at this caveman thing, you’re not human:
He also sells Geico? This one too, you humorless not-humans:
Esteemed artist unknown.

Don’t worry, there’s fodder for the birthers too:
Only Romney's MONEY is from overseas.

And, yes, some shiz for the Godwin’s Law addicts:
The horrah! THE HORRAH!

If you can’t tell, that’s a graphic, posted last month, explaining how Hitler, Mao Zedong and Stalin are providing policy ideas to former Attorney General Janet Reno in the name of genocide.

BUT WAIT! There’s more! The group also posted a strange, rambling pseudo-article attributed falsely to 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft about how George Soros is a “demon” who killed Jews. They provided commentary of their own, posted as a comment under the group’s name:

Describing Gerorge Soros as “evil” is too kind of a word to describe him. This man has been allowed to orchestrate the downfall of this country and is the puppet master of the Muslim POTUS. This man has criminal behavior going back to childhood when he served up his own people to his Nazi masters in Hungary. He is a communist, a molester of humanity and is a student of history. He knows what to expect of the American people because he is able to use the decadence of our uninformed and under-educated society of dimwits further his aim of destroy the United States of America.

Muslim POTUS? Nazi masters? Is it possible? The elusive double-bonus wingnut hillbilly sooper-score? It’s actually happened! The small, neglected Mecklenburg County GOP managed to combine a Nazi reference with a birther reference, with triple bonus points for using the word “molester.” Nobody thought it could be done.

What a Cinderella story. [WaPo]

There is no snark in me for this garbage. It's hard to get happy after seeing this.

BadKitty904 September 26, 2012 at 10:43 am

My great-grandmother – a tiny, genteel Southern lady – was arrested as a pro-civil rights demonstrator in Atlanta in 1965. Forty-seven years later and we're *STILL* dealing with this kind of willful ignorance and un-American BS? It makes me sad for the Land of the Free and Home of the Brave… :0(

Barbara_ September 26, 2012 at 10:49 am

Oh BadKitty, I am loving your great-grandmother.

Ah, I feel much better now, thanks.

miss_grundy September 26, 2012 at 2:37 pm

Actually, it would be nice if all these haters suffered brain aneurysms (with votes) on Election night when the Pres is reelected. I would also like someone to throw some eau de skunk through the window of their meeting place and a big old bag of urine. Really smell up the place….of course, do it with votes ;-}

Terry September 26, 2012 at 11:23 am

Note that even after the Va State GOP rep "was in the process of contacting" the County GOP people, the County GOP'ers didn't take that crap down off of their Facebook page.

DemmeFatale September 26, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Yep, Barb.
This is the kind of Wonkette post that makes me want to say: Kill. Me. Now.
When I see "READ MORE," my answer is: aw, do I have to?
I weep for humanity when I see this.
Oh well, I will enjoy watching their heads asplode when he is re-elected, (in a landslide).

In the meantime, I need more coffee. *sigh*

Barbara_ September 26, 2012 at 12:43 pm

Demme, I just popped over to the ReaganCoalition website and I am amazed by how many people post things like, "We must get rid of Obama by bullet or ballot" and think that this is kosher. Spooky stuff.

HELisforHEL September 26, 2012 at 2:05 pm

I hate them. I hate them all. I have absolutely come to the conclusion that anyone I know who finds this type of horrid shit funny is no one I want to engage with. That's one Facebook does well–it weeds out the assholes in your life pretty quickly.

I LOLd at that line. Dear god – someone who understands real things that have happened in our past!

YouFail4eva September 26, 2012 at 11:34 am

That's what's so hilarious. They also managed to include a "education is an elite thing that we don't need" schtick in there. It's amazing that one liberal billionaire can put the entire right wing on edge when he hasn't even done anything, while Sheldon Adelson just broke the all time record for most money given by a person to campaigns.

Tundra Grifter September 26, 2012 at 12:02 pm

BTF: That one caught my eye, as well. Should anyone doubt the GNoP is anti-science, learning and knowledge in general. Don't believe in man-made climate change. Don't believe in evolution. Don't believe in studying history.

That's quite the trifecta right there!

Mecklenburg County is down on the border with North Carolina. Big surprise. I wonder why they even have a local Republican Party there, the nearest Democrat probably lives in Richmond.

"He knows what to expect of the American people because he is able to use the decadence of our uninformed and under-educated society of dimwits further his aim of destroy the United States of America."

Are they talking about Soros or Romney?

chicken_thief September 26, 2012 at 11:10 am

To pound his point home with a sledge hammer, the under-educated (and PROUD OF IT, GAWDDAMMIT!!!!) dimwits don't even realize that, if true, [Soros] would be talking about THEM.

Hudson said he posted most of the images himself, after coming across them online. He said critics were playing “the race card.”

WOW. It takes a special breed of navel-gazing asshole to be this calculatingly obtuse.

BadKitty904 September 26, 2012 at 10:50 am

I'm not sure it's calculating or deliberate. I'm guessing he really *IS* bone-deep ignorant…

Gleem McShineys September 26, 2012 at 2:27 pm

I always thought navel-gazing meant a kind of self-involved introspection.

In these cockbuckets' cases, what with their heads so far up their asses, navel-gazing means peering out of it like a peephole.

Who says the GOP doesn't recycle? This is probably from Clinton's reelection from 16 years ago. And it is So Timely. Half the country doesn't know who the current AG is, much less one from the end of the last century.

My Libertarian brother would send me the 'Clinton will take your guns away' constantly. Yeah, we all see how Bill and Hillary came to his apartment and took all his guns, then used them TO KILL HIM, STEAL HIS STEREO AND HIS TEEVEE AND RAPE HIS WIFE!1!!1!
Oh wait, yeah, none of that idiocy happened.

NorthStarSpanx September 26, 2012 at 1:07 pm

I think if Romney were to ever be President, he'd asked all the non-White's to do our country a favor and self-deport.

Redgyal September 26, 2012 at 2:34 pm

The irony of your statement is that the REAL favor to our country would be for the White people who think that way to self-deport.

ibwilliamsi September 26, 2012 at 10:47 am

When the State Chair of the Republican Party tells you to take your racist shit off of your Facebook Page and you don't because "sensitive people aren't human", it's time for the Chair to quit. Your people are OFF THE CHAIN and if you don't want that shit splattered all over YOU, then you should get out of the way. You can't have it both ways. No one ever heard of you before this. Now EVERYONE knows what kind of a leader YOU are.

Good luck getting a job November 7th if you don't stand your ground this time. Because you ARE going to be unemployed November 7th, and four extra weeks of unemployment isn't going to kill you if it buffs up your resume by showing that you won't tolerate racist bullshit.

actor212 September 26, 2012 at 12:28 pm

Some people actually do, the smart ones. You know, the ones who keep their cameras in their purses or bags or pockets (or around their necks) and don't stand in a pack of twenty the middle of a sidewalk unfurling maps the size of billboards.

In fact, I'd say most tourists blend in nicely and if it wasn't for the increased foot traffic, you'd never know it was tourist season around the city for those folks. Well, them and the fact our hunting licenses are valid…

sewollef September 26, 2012 at 1:21 pm

The interesting thing about tourists in NY is that we [locals] often think that all New York's money is made in the financial district, which is why the economy of the city is bigger than most countries.

However, last year, [2011] saw a record number of tourists in NY, some 50.5 million. Now let's assume each of those tourists spent a reasonable $1,000-$1500 on their stay.

That makes up to $75,750,000,000 added to the economy of the city. Or, a fair chunk of change.

But the thing that pisses me off is, the fucking MTA still can't renovate the decrepit subway stations in the boroughs or put trackside arrival indicators that other subway systems around the world have had for decades. And, AND… claims to be broke since it keeps increasing the fares. Grrr.

After all, a rich, white woman whose books are subsidized by the GOP bulk buying program pulled herself up by her own bootstraps would know everything there is to know about racism in America.

There are probably, somewhere, very reasonable members of the contemporary GOP who are genuinely interested in improving political discourse in a way that is constructive, well-reasoned, and responsible.

At least they put the blame squarely on Obama for tanking the economy in 2008 before he became president.

He did it retroactively, the same way Romney retired from Bain Capital before they laid off all those steel workers.

SayItWithWookies September 26, 2012 at 11:19 am

Keep it up, Mecklenburg GOP — the crazier you get, the more isolated you'll become, which will only increase your feeling of being beseiged, which will drive more people away, and will only leave an even crazier core — and the cycle of conservativism will continue. I doubt you'll ever go completely extinct, just because you can find flat-earthers and snake-handlers still clinging to the vine too, but you'll get so small nobody notices anymore. That's my conclusion, as a student of history.

The truly sad, ironic and just plain messed up fact is that these people making these fucked up posters and mailings would DIRECTLY BENEFIT from the Affordable Care Act! It would be as if these same people went on a rampage about traffic lights forcing them to stop at intersections, while tweeting from their cars on the road. But, Darwinism. Perhaps the lack of healthcare will weed them out…

I'm such a sick puppy, I really hope he just cold fucks with their heads after he gets re-elected. Not in terms of policy, but little lifestyle things that make them even more nuts.

For example:

Playing Kanye and Dre's "N-s in Paris" at an inauguration event
Showing up for a press availability in his workout clothes, including a mesh "and1" jersey
Prominently mentioning a love of fried chicken and watermelon (preferably in the context of a molecular gastronomy reduction of the first to a charred piece of bone marrow and the second a dollop of foam, just for the twofer effect)
Having an actual "hip hop bbq" on the south lawn, with 2chains on the mic and Rihanna grinding on a stage throughout her number
Publicly commenting on how "fresh and young" the debutantes of Virginia look in the spring (lip smacking optional)
Replacing all the images of white leaders in the Oval office and West Wing with portraits of famous people of color
Putting a bust of Stalin or Mao next to the one of Churchill in the White House in the name of diversity
Donning "whiteface" for his final appearance at the Gridiron Club.

The list is potentially limitless, and I know he has thought about it (he dropped a couple of hip hop references in one set of jokes that tell me he could go to head exploding levels of swag without much effort).

Redgyal September 26, 2012 at 11:51 am

This post leaves me hollow and empty. Those pictures are unnecessary. Yes I understand that we need to know that these people exist, but maybe like the Westboro Baptist Church and that yahoo down in the Florida, it's time to stop giving them attention. I also fully acknowledge that it can be fun to mock them, but there are so many richer targets for our mockery. Callista, Ann, Paul, Michele, Willard…..

Posts like these just make me sad.

schvitzatura September 26, 2012 at 3:50 pm

OT, but perhaps worthy to relate:

I got a phone call from a former fellow town board member (Yay! The most basic of political representation, next to HOA chief or little league president in suburban Amurica. Volunteer with a extremely modest per diem). He had since gone on to great things in the local GOP apparatus. He asked me if I wanted to be in a commercial. I asked what kind of commercial. He said the kind of commercial that would say "Nannybooboo Obammerz gives me a sad". I said probably not, since I was leaning (leaning? Hell, more like ground-parallel) toward the current incumbent.

I think he thought we were simpatico on this or something and that I would agree to "501c-a stardom". Surprise! Then I asked did he know who was paying for it. He said he was too low level a drone functionary to know. Then I mentioned Citizens United. I think he started to guess we were not on the same wavelength and that I liked transparency and who is footing the bill (I'm ready for my closeup, Mssrs. Koch/Adelson). Then I said I would have voted Republican if the party was closer to say a Nelson Rockefeller position/state of affairs and not having been transformed , lo these past 40 or so years.

The clincher, and this is where he went totally apeshit was when I mentioned "Southern Strategy" and "dog-whistle politics". He muttered "bullshit, total bullshit/it's a myth, complete fabrication" multiple times and called me a bigoted McCarthyist, painting the whole GOP as some sort of racist institution. I said "if the shoe fits".

I don't think he appreciated that.

Do you, fellow Wonkpeeps, think that we can still be collegial colleagues? Can we still be friends?

His fellow comrades downstate seem to be unmitigated pricks at a minimum, sociopathic unreformed racists perhaps.

Describing Gerorge Soros as “evil” is too kind of a word to describe him. This man has been allowed to orchestrate the downfall of this country and is the puppet master of the Muslim POTUS. This man has criminal behavior going back to childhood when he served up his own people to his Nazi masters in Hungary. He is a communist, a molester of humanity and is a student of history. He knows what to expect of the American people because he is able to use the decadence of our uninformed and under-educated society of dimwits further his aim of destroy the United States of America.

That actually made me laugh. Usually this shit either pisses me off or makes me want to move to Sweden. I must be in the mood for some wingnuttery today. Can't wait for these assholes to cry and whine for another 4 years come November.
