Heritage not hate!

Hello, it is your Wonkette, and we are here to report to you that this whole “I’m a bigot, give me all the cash on GoFundMe” thing is no longer a random occurrence, nor is it a pattern, it’s a damned INDUSTRY. Meet your new grifter, Jim Boggess of Flemington, New Jersey! What act of bigotry and subsequent backlash has beset poor Jim? Oh, just that he put a sign in the window of his establishment, Jimbo’s Deli, asking people to celebrate their “white heritage” for the month of March. Apparently Boggess never got the memo that ALL THE MONTHS are White History Month, including the one where Americans perfunctorily make note of famous black Americans through history.

Well, of course, people said all kinds of mean things to Boggess, and he lost a ton of business, and despite the fact that he SHOOK HANDS with the mixed-race customer who complained in the first place, people still think he’s an asshole. And he’s begging for YOUR bigot money with a GoFundMe called “Jimbos white history sign gone bad.” [Sic, obviously.]

Fuh real, y’all. Get a load of this money beg:

It was only supposed to be a white thing but people read more into it than that. I did get tons of supporting letters from all across the USA. Which was very comforting during such a stressful time. Then the bottom dropped out and customers were no longer coming into my deli, and now I am forced to close down my Deli and lose my American dream. I have become heavily in debt and getting shut off notices from everywhere for both business and home. I don’t think I deserve this just because I wanted to be proud of being white and be able to celebrate my heritage like everyone else does. If you read this , please leave a comment and what state your from so I can see where my support is coming from. Thank you for all the support and. I WILL stay strong and hope to find a job.

Well golly gosh, Jimbo, we can’t imagine why people would “read more into” a bitter old white man whining that nobody is paying attention to his “white heritage.” Sorry, dude, but you done fucked up ya OWN American Dream! Also, we are very curious if Jimbo even knows what his “white heritage” is, because if he had been a little more specific — say, if he were Irish-American — we don’t think anyone would have batted an eye! Accompanying the beg is this picture, yes really, this picture:

forcedout

Yes, he was FORCED OUT of business, just for saying that maybe, you know, we could think of the Whites once in a while! The good news is that, as of this writing, poor Jimbo’s GoFundMe only has $215, sadface. But for some reason, we have a feeling it will grow.

And all this time, Wonkette has been trying to get its slice of the bigot GoFundMe pie, saying look, we fired a gay, for freedom, and for Jesus, and we’ve gotten a LITTLE, but nowhere near what these bigots with their pizza and their flowers have gotten. The pizza people can retire, and the florist lady can go to Branson as many times as she wants, WHERE IS OUR BIGOT MONEY?

So, we are going to have to double down. Wonkette promises that, if somehow it happens that we get big enough that we need a personal assistant, we will not hire a gay for that position, unless we think he is really hot, or if he’s otherwise “qualified” for the position. WE PROMISE. We will reject all gay applicants out of hand, unless we don’t want to. WON’T YOU CHIP IN $5 TO HELP US GET BIG ENOUGH THAT WE NEED A PERSONAL ASSISTANT, WHO WILL NOT BE GAY, UNLESS WE WANT HIM TO BE? Or her. It could be a she-gay. That would be fine too.

It’s what baby Jesus, the Founding Fathers and America herself would want, dammit.

    I’m guessing it would be impossible to explain to any of these types why Irish History is different than “white” history, or how whiteness evolved in the United States as an in-group out-group qualifer. *Sigh* Just like I still don’t understand what “white heritage” is supposed to be. I think it involves bad fast food restaurants?

      See, the manager at the local Kinko’s is blah, which wouldn’t be appropriate for a White History Month sign.

      • Lizzietish81

        Next to the clinic I escorted at was a Copy Cop, and the manager hated the fetus fetishers and would occasionally shoo them away. Even better was the post office next to that, where the post master would come out and yell at them for disturbing the public.

  • Spurning Beer

    I’m getting a button made that says “Kiss me –I’m white!”

    • Donald E Niman

      1. Someone could do a Kickstarter campaign for buttons and other trinkets for bigots: “Kiss my ass — I’m White!”

      2. And then when “someone” catches shit for doing that, they can do a “GoFundMe”.

      3. Profit!

    Jimbo’s analysis fails to take into account the confounding variable that his food might have sucked, too.

    …so this dumb-ass has owned this shop for how many years?! Why all of sudden does he feel the need to post this sign now?! These shit heads have failing businesses and have found a way to get their fellow bigots to bail them out.

    Occasionally when we go to a restaurant, something will go wrong. The food is poorly prepared, the service is careless, it’s noisy, menu items are unavailable. After that we may say “they’re off the list”. This nut and his “whites only” sign would be off the list before we opened the door.

  • Lizzietish81

    This reminds me of back before hating Bush wasn’t in fashion, we (me, my sister and her husband) were coming back from a camping trip and stopped at a restaurant we had been to the previous year that now had a sign proudly proclaiming that it was serving “Freedom Fries”. I went in sat down and started loudly ordering FRENCH Fries! Made in the FRENCH Style!

    • You’re like Victor Laszlo in Casablanca!

          Fun factoid about this scene, the extras were actual French refuges.

            As was the singer, Madeleine Lebeau. (I use the past tense because she was a refugee at the time. She’s still with us.)

          • Steverino247

            How many diamonds did it cost them to get in the scene?

          • richardgrabman

            In Casablanca? A funner factoid is that Dominican strongman Rafael Trujillo was in extra in the airport scene.

        • Vive la France!

            I’ve never understood all this anti-French bullshit. Without France, there would be no United States of America.

    …I’m a little confused:

    -When gun NUTZ boycott Target/Starbucks/Chipolte because they ask them not to bring their weapons into their business. That’s LIBERTY & FREE MARKET

    BUT!!!!

    -When the public at large decides not to spend their personal income at a racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise bigoted business then that is “Forcing” them out of business.

    Whatever happened to the “Free Market”?!

    • Liberalandold.

      His business was already failing. I do believe he got an idea to save it by becoming controversial. He’s an idiot.

  • AnOuthouse

    The sign was up for three days and that caused a bankruptcy? The story smells fishy and I’m guessing the store did too.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      The tuna salad smells fishy, also, too.

      True story: my sister’s first part-time job at about age 15 was as a waitress in a small ice-cream parlor/sandwich shop. (Not Jimbo’s obviously.) Every day they would stick the leftover tuna salad from the day before into the new batch. Every fucking day. That place is long gone and I’m not starting a GoFundMe campaign to revive it.

    Now, we all know the score. This didn’t put him out of business. If he did this in March and is closing his doors in April, he had some ongoing long-term issues (possibly he had a sign on the door previously saying every sandwich was made with his own feces, maybe?) and was going to go under anyway. Might as well cash in on the retard vote while he’s at it. I would be tempted. There’s a lot of money out there and a lot of idiots willing to send it to bigots and haters, and the bar to make it into that club is pretty low.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      That “Celebrate Your Feces Heritage in February – Shite History Month” sign really hurt his walk-in trade.

    I have ‘friends’ back home, in Philly, I believe would have hatched a plan like this one. If this bag-o-dicks gets his money, they might still. I grew up in a southeastern Pennsylvania, working-class neighborhood. Actual geniuses are, of course, as common as Navajo code-talkers. Tool-kits who BELIEVE themselves to be geniuses are flowing in the streets like PBR-infused urine. And all (literally all, everyone of them, to a person) of those Dunning-Kruger poster kids are raging racists. It’s in the water they drink. Along with all the heavy metals.

    Jimbo, here, is no outlier. He’s no rare bird. It’s ugly behind the closed doors, even on the coasts.

      • Mehmeisterjr

        “April is Actual Bag of Dicks Month” could be just the publicity he needs.

      • Good idea, except for one thing. Those seem to be dicks of color. Can they send him a bag of proud, white dicks? You are what you eat.

    I wonder why Jimbo didn’t include the generous wages and benefits he gave his employees as reasons why his shithole deli went under.

    “I was not joking about White History Week … I’m serious about that. White Americans really do not not know their history, and that’s one of the reasons they’re in trouble. And when I suggest White History Week, I’m not making a parody of Black History Week, but I’m suggesting that the truth about this country is buried in the myths that white people have about themselves. These myths have to be excavated and only can be excavated by white people.”

    – noted ghey kommy blah man James Baldwin, 1986

    • Angry_Cop

      He’s right about that. What’s worse – and what he doesn’t and really couldn’t address – is that what white folks believe to be their history is a mishmash of fairy tales and outright self-serving lies.

      • undercover epicurean

        More..

        “I want to establish, a modest proposal, white history week. Because the answer to these questions is not to be found in me, but in that history which produces these questions. It’s late in the day to be talking about race relations, what are you talking about!? And as long as we have ‘race relations’ how can they deteriorate or improve? I am not a race and neither are you. No. We’re talking about the life and death of this country. And one of the things, I’m not joking when I talk about white history week, one of the things that most afflicts this country is that white people don’t know who they are or where they come from. That’s why you think I’m a problem. But, I am not a problem your history is. And as long as you pretend you don’t know your history you’re going to be the prisoner of it. And there’s no question of your liberating me because you can’t liberate yourselves. We’re in this together. And, finally, when white people, quote unquote white people, talk about progress in relation to black people, all they are saying and all they can possibly mean by the word progress is how quickly and how thoroughly I become white. Well, I do not want to become white I want to grow up and so should you. Thank you.”

            Our history in general. There’s a hell of a lot of ugliness in it, no matter where our genes got their start. But any decent counsellor will tell you that knowing and accepting and owning it is where you start fixing it.
            And anyone who thinks that doubling down on the ugly is the way to ‘fix’ things needs to have their noses rubbed in it. For an extended period of time. Perhaps in a movie theatre?

      No doubt where he intends to park the proceeds from his gofundme campaign.

      • Redgyal

        True. And I’m sure they teach the type of history his likes down there too.

  • beatbort

    I’ll bet if he puts this pitch on the GoBundMe site, he’ll do a lot better.

    • Jus_Wonderin

      GoBungMe…even.

    • Shibusa

      GoBundy: $1.3 million in taxpayer monies, there for the taking.

  • Wait, isn’t this the sort of thing Rand of the curly hair says should happen? The invisible hand (or customer) of the free market? Be a bigoted asshole, have customers stop buying, lose your business? Gosh, and now they’re complaining because it actually worked? (once) I’m confused.

    Interesting. Yesterday his GoFundMe listed a fundraising goal of $126,900. Today it states the goal is $1.
    Jimmy ‘Bogus’ went about this all wrong, just like all the other stupid grifters who are trying to cash in.

  • Mehmeisterjr

    Cliven Bundy could make a fortune giving seminars on how to grift this just right. Do they have The Learning Annex in Nevada?

    Always the grift with these conservative scumbags.

    Your Tweet (TM) had the perfect term for this: Bigot Bucks. I urge you to use, disseminate, repeat, exploit, and otherwise promote this excellent term!

    • dshwa

      Bigot Bucks! Bigot Bucks, No whammy, and STOP!

  • Zippy

    Sorry Jimbo- it’s just not enough to be proud of your pasty white ass, you’ve got to actively hate some other group of people to really open the spigots and rake in the bigot cash. Try turning away someone you think is a ghey or shooting the first blah person that happens to walk by- that always riles up the rubes and opens their wallets. You’ve got to step up and differentiate yourself from the others, it’s a crowded field out there in the wingnut self pity industry. You need to elevate your brand and increase your customer awareness. Maybe try telling everyone your dishwasher was a secret ghey Messican illegal alien recruited by ISIS and trained at that desert terrist camp just outside of El Paso- intentionally infected with the Ebola. So you had to turn him away AND shoot him in order to protect your fellow precious white peeps from an infected corned beef and rye sammich. That should get the wingnut cash flowing.

    • TheBidenator

      I was thinking the same thing- if only Jimbo had put a sign up saying “white history month- fuck the Messicans and build the dang fence!” he’d be swimming in wingnut bucks as part of the pity industrial complex for self sufficient individualists….he’s doing it wrong, you’ve got to be stupid AND offensively hateful, not just stupid and offensive.

      • lurch394

        Pity industrial complex: I’m going to remember that!

        Ah, so I did.

  • Callyson

    It was only supposed to be a white thing

  • BearGHAZI

    so totally boggess

  • TheBidenator

    Every time I see something like this it makes me enraged because of the money these fuckers can raise but it also makes me chuckle…these are the hard workin’ self sufficient white people who don’t need charity or the gummint, remember? There are few things in this world more reliable than wingnut hypocrisy- it’s like the sunrise just count on that shit.

    • Blank Ron

      Irony. Sweet, sweet irony.

    The invisible hand of the free market is also available for bitch slapping idiots.

    No, it doesn’t. I would rather die poor and nice that earn 800k by fucking people over.

    • Enfant Terrible

      Having scruples really sucks sometimes.

  • Pat_Pending

    GoFundMe is some sort of Ponzi scheme, eh what? The early investors are getting paid out big time, and now that the glommers are glomming it’s sort of losing steam.

    • Enfant Terrible

      It has that same dynamic, and the latecomers are in for a major sad.

  • Enfant Terrible

    Completely sucking at public relations is not being “forced out of business”.

  • laineypc

    Here is what I want to see to give him the moneez: “Dear Deli Customers, I did something terrible and dumb I realize now that I am clueless about white privilege, but I am starting to learn more. In addition to putting “I am so sorry about that dumb sign earlier, it was a huge mistake. My bad. I am trying to understand.” in my store window, I plan to participate in a Beloved Conversations workshop by Mark Hicks http://www.markhicksedu.com/ to get a better handle on this race stuff! “

    Quelle douche.

    Well, I read this article this morning, and checked the GFM account amount at that time. Then I just checked it again right now.

    He made a whole $5 in twelve hours today.

    I wonder how many sandwiches he could have sold today had he kept his bigoted asshole er mouth shut?

    To avoid market exhaustion, please allow two Social Security payment cycles to elapse before launching your new grift in this category.

    Thank You.

    THERE is a problem with this article that we forget a true liberal would repeat what Voltaire said as i quote “I may not agree with a single thing you say in fact i may loathe it,but i will defend it to my death your right to say it” keep that in mind.

    • qadesh

      well, except for this tiny little problem:

      Evelyn Beatrice Hall

      From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

      Evelyn Beatrice Hall

      Born
      1868

      Died
      after 1938

      Pen name
      Stephen G. Tallentyre

      Occupation
      Writer

      Evelyn Beatrice Hall (1868 – after 1938),[1] who wrote under the pseudonym S. G. Tallentyre, was an English writer best known for her biography of Voltaire entitled The Friends of Voltaire, which she completed in 1906.

      In her biography on Voltaire, Hall wrote the phrase: “I disapprove of
      what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it”
      (which is often misattributed to Voltaire himself) as an illustration of
      Voltaire’s beliefs.[2] Hall’s quotation is often cited to describe the principle of freedom of speech.
      Hall appeared to be an important influence in the life of her brother-in-law,[3] Hugh Stowell Scott
      (pseudonym Henry Seton Merriman). Upon his death in 1903, Scott left
      £5,000 to Hall, writing that it was “in token of my gratitude for her
      continued assistance and literary advice, without which I should never
      have been able to have made a living by my pen

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evelyn_Beatrice_Hall

      • Steven Dutch

        True. She had no intention of perpetrating a hoax. She was merely paraphrasing what she felt Voltaire’s philosophy to be.

        Good thing, too, because if he HAD said it, we’d have grounds for kicking him out of the Great Thinkers Club. Because it’s an incredibly stupid thing to say. There are things I’d risk my life for, but I only have one, and I’ll be d*****d if I’m going to waste it on defending utterances I despise. There are too many other things worth risking my life for.

  • Chode

    Well, since Middle Easterners and North Africans are counted as “white” by the U.S Census, obviously he was alluding to celebrating a “Middle Eastern” Heritage Month through his store…Am I right? ;)

  • Eva Porter

    This reminds me of when my kid asked “when is it kids’ day” in response to Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, etc. I looked at her wearily and said “everyday is kids’ day…” She was eight at the time.

  • toomanyrappers

    We need a month to teach everyone about the Reconstruction Era. White history, indeed. Not much there to celebrate though..

  • Incoming Ham

    You’re a bigot Mr. Grift
    You really are trying to steal,
    You’re as phony as a Tom Cotton, you’re as truthful as Ted Cruz, Mr. Grift,
    You’re a completely full of shit and trying to work the rubes!

  • WagMoreBarkLess

    He’s going out of business because he badly miscalculated with his special White Heritage Month menu: white bread, white rice, whitefish and mayonnaise.
