Seemingly Racist Delaware Park Signs Merely Really Stupid, Not Apartheid For Your Spanishes

So here’s a thing that’s been going around the intarwebs for a few days: Signs at two school playgrounds in Milford, Delaware, have totally different meanings in Spanish and English. The English version is the usual legal ass-covering warning telling parents that they need to supervise their children. The Spanish, version, however, translates to “You must have a permit to play on this field. Violators are subject to police action.” Well, damn, that sounds like a pretty clear attempt to tell Spanish speakers to take their filthy niños elsewhere, doesn’t it? Or as “DelawareDem” on Daily Kos put it, It is an obvious intimidation tactic and a not so subtle “Whites Only” sign. So if you are a white English speaking “American,” you can play here at your own risk so long as you have a parent or guardian watching. If you are brown, if you dare play here without a permit we will arrest your immigrant ass. That is the fucking height of racism, and I will see to it that who ever is responsible for this sign will have their public careers ended immediately. Which is a sentiment we can get behind, though hahaha at the notion that pissed-off lefty bloggers can immediately get a government employee fired. That power is reserved for Dead Andrew Breitbart, silly! Read more on Seemingly Racist Delaware Park Signs Merely Really Stupid, Not Apartheid For Your Spanishes…

‘Worst Governor Ever’ Sign Ruins Sarah Palin’s Teevee Show, Results In Weird YouTube Coversation

Sarah Palin’s Discovery Channel show was filming in Homer, Alaska, and decided it needed a lot of security to keep the mama grizzly bear safe. But this couldn’t stop some woman who dislikes Sarah Palin from putting up a “WORST GOVERNOR EVER” sign. Palin confronted the woman, and like all conversations between politicians and angry members of the public, it was rather awkward. But also Sarah Palin is dumb.

A Children’s Treasury of Boston Teabagger Dorkery

HELLO, SAILOR! Not sure what this fellow is even protesting or if he’s just proud of wriggling around in Mitt’s magic underwear, but it’s safe to say that his Tea Party Shirt has the best spelling and grammar and font of any Teabagger shirt, sign or words scrawled on Sarah Palin’s palm.

New York State Farmers Still Love Hillary Clinton

Wonkette operative Christine Longiaru (via Jessica Keltz) found this charming rural decoration while “traveling for work” in upstate New York. The most awesome thing about this anti-Hillary agricultural-simulacra tableau is that the guy finished it, stepped back, gave it a proud once-over, and went back into the house completely satisfied with his work.
