    Oh, the blackness….

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

      Quite! Mater suggested this AM that the President could possibly be an African Negro, subject to verification of his Certificate of Birth or Immigration. Of course.

    Was Obama meeting Whitey Ford for the first time?

    • ThankYouJeebus

      Whitey Bulger. O is obviously mobbed up.

    • SorosBot

      Even worse; Lita Ford. And he kissed her deadly.

    • littlebigdaddy

      Total racism. It's ok to be "Whitey" Ford. But you never hear about "N-word" Washington.

      Whitey Herzog?

      "Whitey" from the Little Rascals?

    Note to Drudge: you never go full Breitbart. Wait, or maybe you should…

    • Boojum

      So, I just watched it on TPM. It reminded me how his focus has always been on healing and overcoming division. Tks, Drudge.

      • http://krisbunda.com/blog/index.php Designer_Rants

        Not after FOX gets done editing it.

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

          The funny thing is, every news outlet covered it this morning.

          …by pointing out that they had covered it five years ago and thought it was pretty pedestrian. Even FOX News gave it a miss at the time.

          Tucker claims that he covered it, but only the released text of the speech.

          Errr, Tucks? That means YOU DIDN'T COVER IT! You read a speech, just like I did.

          You are not a journalist, you have no business claiming to report on ANYthing, and you should just die by choking on votes.

  • SnarkOff

    THE ACCENT… THE ANGER… THE ACCUSATIONS…” The alliteration.

    The first two Whitey Tapes having failed, Drudge came up with a bold plan, which he called the Other, Other, Whitey Tape. This, for the barely closeted hatstand, was the turning point.

    • BoatOfVelociraptors

      8-track. It's the other, other, whitey tape.

      • BaldarTFlagass

        Hope someone has a matchbook to jam under the tape when it starts double-tracking.

  • TribecaMike

    Drudge taped over the Koch brothers-Connie Chung threesome tape for this?

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

      Maury Povich libel!

    • AncienReggie

      Surprised. I thought the Koch were into Michelle Malkin. For the nonstop grudge-fucks.

    • DrunkIrishman
  • Mahousu

    Turns out it was just Obama giving a long, somewhat tedious critique of Average White Band, back when he was in college.

  • SorosBot

    The whole “THE ACCENT… THE ANGER… THE ACCUSATIONS…” bullshit hype seems ripped off of the opening to Xena; you know "THE POWER … THE PASSION … THE DANGER", only Xena was not a racist like Drudge, and I would love to see her kick his sorry closeted ass and slice that stupid hat of his in half.

  • SexySmurf

    I've actually already seen the tape. It shows Obama hugging TWO black guys, then an Eskimo, high-fiving a Chinaman, and finishing by chest bumping a one-eyed Nicaraguan.

    • Dr_Zoidberg

      Impeach!!

    • Guppy

      Might this be the same Eskimo that Jesus uses as a prop?

  • SorosBot

    It's like, how much more black could this be? and the answer is none. None more black.

    I love it when spittle-flecked screamers with every vein in their forehead and neck throbbing manage to characterize our president as angry. Go through Mitt's fuckin' Boca Raton speech and see the only times he gets enervated — it's when he describes those who aren't paying Federal income tax as "entitled." I don't know what they're gonna try to stick on President Obama this time, but one thing's for sure about Mitt — his loathing of the less monied is 100% sincere.

    • tessiee

      President Obama is "angry" and "militant" all the times that he is not "weak" and "in over his head".

    • LionHeartSoyDog

      It's amazing to me: People who are so poor that they don't qualify to pay federal taxes are somehow "entitled."
      And the 1%rs somehow forget that anybody who buys gasoline or shops for food is already paying tax, whether they can afford it or not.
      I would like to see in the debate: O demolish Rmoney so severely that even the teabagz are embarrassed.

  • WhatTheHeck

    This Whitey tape soon to be turned into a major motion picture: “TRANSFORMERS – THE WHITE SIDE OF THE MOON”

  • YouBetcha

    I'd hit that.

    • Negropolis

      Hell, you'd hit the ocean if it waved at you…

      I think the real question is what wouldn't you hit?

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

        Excuse me, is this the line forming?

      • YouBetcha

        Justin Beiber, Herman Cain, Ann Coulter, and Dick Morris.

        OK yeah, so admittedly that's a pretty short list of people I wouldn't hit.

  • Abernathy

    White people are all like, “THE ACCENT… THE ANGER… THE ACCUSATIONS…”

    • http://krisbunda.com/blog/index.php Designer_Rants

      And black people are all like "WHERE DA WHITE TAPES AT?"

  • SorosBot

    I'm sure this will be a perfectly cromulent video and a real game-changer; I mean, remember when the ghost of Breitbart promised a video that would destroy Obama, and it turned out it showed that he once actually hugged a black guy. And not just any black guy, but a Harvard Law professor!

    That's why Romney is ahead by 10 points today – in the real unscewed polls at least!

    • MissTaken

      Tomorrow Mitt will be ahead by 115 points in the unscewed polls. Barry won't even show up to the debate. Instead he'll just FedEx over the the keys to AF1 and let Mitt become President immediately. By Thursday, unemployment will drop to .0017% and gas will cost 13 cents a gallon.

      • SorosBot

        The Dow will rise to 50,000 points, and working peons all over will agree to provide free labor in return for whatever scraps our employers deign to give us!

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

      The law professor was black, though

      And we thought Clinton was Satan.

  • MonkeyHamlet

    I am saddened and disappointed that a serious journalistic outlet like Wonkette would give publicity to a Turdge Report "bombshell" that will likely be a massive turd serving only to widen the racial divide in our beloved U. S of A. That said, I can't wait for Mitty's Moroni white ass to be red as a injun chief when the blah brotha woops it on Nov. 6.

        Alinsky to Ayers to Wright. They figure they say it enough it will replace Tinkers to Evers to Chance in the public mindset of 60 years ago.

        • tessiee

          I had a college course in speech and hearing where the instructor helped us remember the three small bones in the ear (Incus, Malleus, and Stapes a/k/a Hammer, anvil, and stirrup), by likening them to Tinkers to Evers to Chance: "Bobby Incus hits it to Bubba Malleus, who throws it to Roberto Stapes".

      • kingofmeh

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

          Listen, they got the 47% video out even before October, so you know there's some juice to come. The only thing holding it back is Mitt's such a miserable campaigner, they haven't felt threatened enough.

          You know, other than FOX News covering it for a couple of days, and even then being drown out by the debate, and then FOX complaining about the rest of the media not covering it for the next four years, no one is going to care who is voting for Obama.

    • CommieDad

      I got a call last night from a push polling firm working for McKenna. When asked, I said the fact that Jay Inslee was a DC insider would make me more likely to vote for him. I also like that he voted against repealing the marriage penalty (people should stay single) and that he supports an energy tax that would cost 25 million Washington state jobs.

      They never asked if I would vote against McKenna if I found out he was a woman. I think he might actually have a chance if he was a woman (in Washington State that is a huge political plus). They're debating tonight, so let's hope!

    Three hundred years ago. It’s a reference the audience understood.

    The Accent…the Anger…the Accustations — Sean Hannity’s Obama Tape http://hillbuzz.org/the-accent-the-anger-the-accu

    tape is from 2006, before Barack Obama seriously decided to run for President in 2008

    * Reverend Jeremiah Wright is in the audience (so good chance it’s Chicago)

    * “We don’t need to build more highways in the suburbs”…is a quote Drudge says is in the video. This sounds like a Rainbow Push sort of speech.

    * Drudge has the picture up where he’s shouting angrily…if this is from the Hannity video then it might be at a Rainbow Push meeting because it looks like it’s in a stadium or arena or something and not a traditional stage venue

    * Obama is speaking candidly to a crowd in much the same way he spoke to that gaggle of large Democrat donors in the Getty Mansion in San Francisco back in early 2008 when he made his infamous remark that Pennsylvanians were “bitter-clingers” who wouldn’t give up their guns or their religion

    * this is keeping with Obama’s long-held habit of saying whatever the group in front of him wanted to hear and doing it in language that disparaged other elements of the Democrat voting coalition; Democrat internal politics are all about playing one group against another even if all of them vote Democrat…so just as rich San Franciscans loved it when Obama mocked rural Pennsylvania Democrats it’s very common for black audiences to thoroughly enjoy speeches talking about how evil and terrible white people are and how racism is responsible for all the ills in black people’s lives (with no personal accountability for their own financial situations ever expected of them)

    * I’ve received no less than 25 emails already asking me if I know what is on the tape and all I can say is that I’d bet any money it was made in Chicago; there’s actually a very good chance it could be from some cable access show here because there are a lot of these for the black audience and hardly any of this footage ever makes it into the general public’s view. The tape could also be from a fundraiser or some Jesse Jackson event. There are a lot of possibilities.

  • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

    You know what's embarrassing about all of this, for the GOP? If the right wing really wanted to sound the "OMG OBAMA IS BLACKCK" dogwhistle just in time for the debate, they really circulated this (six-year-old, thoroughly covered) video way too late to have any impact, by deciding to make this a big deal on late evening, Debate Eve.

    Romney doesn't have enough time to formulate a coherent attack over this, so either he ignores it entirely, in which case its only purpose is to demonstrate the hamfisted efforts the right is going to in order to stoke racial wedge politics this time around, or he follows their lead and launches an ill-considered attack without all that much prep work behind it, in which case, Scott Brown's Indian Panic really does become prologue for the Presidential debates, also to Romney's detriment.

    The thing to remember -and at least the activist/"news" wing of the GOP has clearly long forgotten this- is that while a lot of middle-class whites are receptive to racialized messaging, it tends to only be insofar as they are also granted deniability; if the message is simply OBAMA IS BLACK AND HAS THOUGHTS ABOUT BLACK AMERICA AND DID WE MENTION THAT HE'S BLACKC???!! -which is really all this line of argument consists of thus far- then you're really gunning for 27% of the vote at that point.

    If they had another day or two to marinate the argument, throw out some rationalizations, and generally desensitize white voters to the bald racism behind this effort, they might actually have had an effect, but 24 hours before the debate? Way the fuck too soon to have the impact they want. This is Backwards B territory, frankly.

    • Dr. Nick Riviera

      They probably did give this information to Romney Co. a week or more ago

      • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

        Disagree, and here's why:

        A few commentators on the left have noted, and I'm sure Republican strategists are aware as well, that the two dominant anti-Obama narratives- that he is a) an empty suit in over his head; and b)a sinister Antichrist figure deliberately destroying America- are contradictory and mutually exclusive. Pivoting from one to the other is awkward and offers a pretty obvious vulnerability.

        Now, for the past week, the Romney campaign has been focused on attacking Obama on competancy grounds, over Libya, and it's hard to see them making that choice knowing that something like this was upcoming.

        No, what I think happened is that someone pointed Drudge to this old video (which has been on Youtube LITERALLY this entire time), and he more or less immediately started to tease it, deciding on a late release in order to give him enough time to actually come up with a lede based on it. Everything about this seems way too half-cocked and out-of-step with the campaign to suggest that there was any actual coordination happening. Not to mention the fact that Romney's campaign leaks more than a sieve, so it's hard to see this move catching anyone by surprise like it has.

        • sullivanst

          What's particularly amusing to me is the way that Fucker is spinning it as allegedly newsworthy, in that he's pointing out that the speech was given without a prompter and this explains why there are some deviations from the prepared remarks (actually, that attempt at forming a causative link is bullshit, Obama often deviates from prepared remarks even when using a prompter, because he keeps editing the speeches he co-writes even after the prepared remarks go out to the media).

          In other words, he's stomping on his, and the rest of the right's, carefully cultivated myth of Obama being dependent on prompters.

      This?
      Is an interesting observation, and probably pertinent to all those people who say things like, "I just don't like him", or a damn lot of them, anyway. If you said, "You mean because he's black?", they'd be all, "No! God, no!", appalled and highly indignant, because somehow, even they don't realize that that's why.*

      *Not that I'm suggesting that that's the only reason anyone could have; it just seems to me that there are an awful lot of people who dislike him and don't know why.

      • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

        Honestly, I can't really say it's really my own observation; it's just a reformulation, for clarity, of Lee Attwater's famous Southern Strategy admission. The "abstraction" from the overt white supremacism of the mid-20th is very much about giving middle-class whites "permission" to support the same racist agenda into the Civil Rights era, by making the racist intent of those policy positions more and more deniable.

      Others found a transcript of Obama's prepared statements. These sources did not contain all of the quotes teased by Drudge, which suggest the remarks were off the cuff.

      Ha — the DailyCaller page with the video of the whole speech cites a transcript released to the press — so the speech that Senator Obama made public because he was a public figure rather than some sort of underground agitator like the DC wants to portray him was the source of the quotes.

      And the other theory of why they got the quote wrong — that the quote on Drudge was bullshit — turns out to be the right guess. The quote about how Obama wanted more of "our people" to do the work in New Orleans, alleging that it's somehow racist — he actually said "our young people," as in America's underprivileged and underemployed youth. So — elision and deliberate misinterpretation totally change the meaning.

    DC has the full video of Obama's speech here.

    Oh, so the main thing they seem to be harping on is that Obama code-switches, proving… what, exactly? That he's not clean and articulate after all? That he speaks in the negro dialect? What am I missing here? What is the "there" there?

    Are white folks seriously so unfamiliar with code-switching that this is a SERIOUSLY BIG DEAL to some of them, or do they know full well what it is, and are trying to make extremely racist hay out of it anyway? I'm asking in all honesty here, because as an also multiracial guy who also moved around a lot when I was young, I'm completely mystified by the idea that anyone wouldn't know what code-switching is and why people do it.

    • BaldarTFlagass

      I didn't realize there was a name for it, thanks! I've noticed this tendency a bit on the sports talk shows; it seems when the black studio commentators are discussing something and there is no white guy present there is a tendency for things to get a little bit more ebonic, even Tom Jackson. I was raised all over the place, and don't have an accent of my own, so I tend to fall into the local accent wherever I am. While I'm down here in Texas, I have a bit of a twang, but when I return here from a visit to the ancestral homeland up in Mass I'm pahking the cah all ovah Hahvahd Yahd. When I worked for a British lady back in the 90s, I had to tell her that I would be picking up her accent out of habit and that I wasn't mocking her.

    • Negropolis

      Anyone remember when Tim Pawlenty – straight outta suburban Minnesota – was running for president and he slipped in and out of a bizarre Southern(ish) accent on the campaign trail on a number of occasions? Everyone code-switches. It can be uncomfortable, though, the speaker doesn't nail it because it doesn't come naturally. lol

      Anyway, again, everyone does it. As a very general example, you don't answer the phone at work with the same voice as you answer your own personal phone.

      • http://dismalpseudoscientist.wordpress.com Incitefully_Joe

        And honestly there are times where we're conditioned expect a mild amount of code-switching and when we don't hear those cues, it's jarring. See Mitt "Cheesy grits y'all" Romney, for instance.

        But, yeah, you're right, it is something everyone does to some degree or another. At the same time, the most discussed, and frankly most interesting examples typically come from people with mixed backgrounds or in mixed societies. Especially when we're talking about not just linguistic code-switching, but social and behavioral code-switching as well. I honestly think that the way we adapt to our social surroundings is generally really cool.

        Even if it means that Drudge, Hannity and Carlson are apparently going to cast the president as some sort of Were-negro who starts acting "too black" under the light of a full moon.

I went to Mediocre State In The Cornfields, and learned all my Blackademics from Henry Louis Gates TV shows.

Anyone who grew up watching ‘The Brady Bunch,’ this racism and discrimination — at least discrimination against black people, there’s some discrimination against white people — simply isn’t a part of our conceptual apparatus, which is why it’s so strange to have of all people this half-black man born in Hawaii in 1961 walking around like he’s Martin Luther King.”

      Ann, your president is black, he's going to be black on election day and during his upcoming inaugeration, and when he passes on and they carve his giant-ass ears and Chesire-cat-grinning visage onto Mount Rushmore, he's going to be black in perpetuity. You, however, will be forgotten, appropriately relegated to the trash can of history.

      You can come around to this fact now, later, or never. Quite frankly, I don't give shit, but please, shoo fly.

      The Adam's Apple Troll — did they add that thing in the 3rd edition AD&D Monster Manual?

    • shawnthesheep

      Yes, because Coulter was born in 1961 and everyone knows that only whitez have suffered racial discrimination in Amerka since then. What were the 1963 March on Washington and the 1964 Civil Rights Act if not attacks on the white race?

    I've used this Alien simile before, and I probably will again because it is so apt, but the Republicans are spazzing out like Science Officer Ash did when Yaphet Kotto knocked his block off with the fire extinguisher.

    Daily Beast has a clip of Carlson on Hannity, saying that this story wasn't reported at the time, 'and i know because I reported on it.' I see Politico is describing it a dud, and even Allen West says that there is no there there. I do so love it when Drudge, Hannity, and Carlson fall flat.

      If Allen West isn't enraged… wait, how can Allen West not be enraged?

        Obviously his wife has come to terms with those "non-negotiable" acts.

    What I'd like to see is a montage of various politicians of different ethnicities slipping into, or attempting to slip into "black" cadence. This would include Hilary Clinton goin' Southern at Coretta Scott King's funeral, Joe Biden's y'all, and a lot of churchy-Bill Clinton. I think Obama is better at it. Not about race, but based on his singing, he probably has a better ear.

      I don't know; I think Bill Clinton is excellent at it.

      BTW, another good (bad) one is Jennifer Granholm at the funeral of Rose Parks. Look it up. It's epic.

    I don't know if America is ready for a black person talking to other black people about black issues in a black accent.

    Is the joke that it's just a grey box, or is there a universe in which there's an actual video?

    Next on Drudge: Romney talking like a white man to a white audience. Cue the siren!

  • ttommyunger

    This is not nearly as pathetic as Drudge continuing to try to pass himself off as a Journalist.
