Rudy Giuliani: Hey, Did You Ever Notice Obama’s Not One Of Us? If You Know What I Mean?

Screw you too, pal
Apparently tired of being associated with competent mayoring on 9/11 and then never shutting up about it, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani seems determined to reframe his legacy. Why he’d decide that acting like the Second Coming of Lester Maddox is a bit of a mystery, though. At a private dinner for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Wednesday, Giuliani shared his suspicion that Barack Obama doesn’t really love America because he’s a weirdo foreigner. Giuliani was careful to note that he only pointed this out because he cares. Read more on Rudy Giuliani: Hey, Did You Ever Notice Obama’s Not One Of Us? If You Know What I Mean?…

Deeply Stupid Small Business ‘Seasalt & Co’ Will Sue You For Bitching Bout Its Sweet Lynching Ad (Updated)

What? It's just a picture.
Update: Since this story broke, Seasalt & Co. has removed all posts after February 14 from its Facebook page. See end of post for more. So here’s a nice little case study for your How Not To Do Corporate Communications, Ever textbook, and if Yr. Dok Zoom were still teaching business writing, he’d probably get at least one or two class periods out of it. You got this little Florida-based computer graphics concern called “Seasalt & Company,” where you “offer Photographic Editing Tools to help artisans creativity thrive.” Which is to say, you sell Photoshop add-ons that adjust the lighting and color of photos. You have a new package of somegodddamnedtechthing coming out (really, REALLY unclear, Seasalt & Co!), and you announce it on your Facebook page with the big mysterious teaser pictured above.

Vermont Proposes Official Latin Motto, Wingnuts Tell Vermont To Go Back To Mexico

Now write it down a hundred times. If it's not done by sunrise, I'll cut your balls off.
Here’s a sweet little story of Democracy in Action. A bright eighth grader writes to her state legislator with an idea for a law: Vermont doesn’t have an official Latin motto, so why not adopt one? And for that matter, make it a reference to history? Neato! Read more on Vermont Proposes Official Latin Motto, Wingnuts Tell Vermont To Go Back To Mexico…

NYPD Union Seeks Advice On Racism From Terribly Sane Pastor Who Loves Segregation

Everyone in the photos behind me would slap me if they heard what I'm saying. Joke's on them -- theyr'e dead!
This ought to go well. Since the NYPD is still feeling most butthurt indeed that Mayor Bill de Blasio hasn’t yet fired his black son or burned his wife’s wardrobe, some of the city’s finest are looking to other sources for advice on building better relations with the black community. Or at least in the case of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, the NYPD sergeants’ union, they met last week in Washington DC with several “national African-American leaders,” including Alveda King, Martin Luther King’s rightwing niece, and E.W. Jackson, the former Virginia lieutenant-governor candidate who’s OK with segregation, believes that Planned Parenthood has been worse for the black community than the KKK, and that the 3/5 compromise was a pretty good thing since it at least gave slaves some political recognition. No, we did not make that up. Did we mention he’s a Republican? Read more on NYPD Union Seeks Advice On Racism From Terribly Sane Pastor Who Loves Segregation…

Pittsburgh Police Chief Says No To Racism. Cops As Fine With This As You’d Expect

Wow, that's so controversial!
Yet another leader of a large police department is learning that you’d better not ever suggest that racism is a thing that exists, or you will be accused of Disloyalty to the Thin-Skinned Blue Line. In Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Police Chief Cameron Mclay is getting a lesson in how post-racial America works: Read more on Pittsburgh Police Chief Says No To Racism.

These Real Patriotic Americans Just Want To Hang Obama From A Tree Is All

KKKlassy
Everyone knows that it was Jesus who wrote the Constitution, and what better way to exercise your biblical rights to petition your government than to gather half a dozen like-minded ‘Mericans outside the White House to have a good chuckle about killing the president?

Non-Racist Texas School Board Member Posted SO MUCH KKK Stuff Online

This never ends well
We suppose this counts as good news, at least in the end. Chris Harris, a member of the Hooks Independent School Board in Texas, has resigned after posting multiple racist images and messages to Facebook last week. He later explained that he wasn’t racist at all; he just got a little worked up in a Facebook discussion of the grand jury’s decision not to indict Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, which is a perfectly reasonable explanation for why Harris posted this image in the discussion thread: Read more on Non-Racist Texas School Board Member Posted SO MUCH KKK Stuff Online…

Wingnut ‘Comedian’ Steven Crowder Sure Wishes Chris Rock Would Stop Being So Racist

Steven Crowder and his inner furry
There is exactly one good thing to come out of the fact that unfunny rightwing comedian Steven Crowder has slagged Chris Rock for comments Rock made in a recent interview with Frank Rich at NY Magazine’s Vulture website: It reminded us to go back and read Chris Rock’s long, excellent interview with Frank Rich at NY Magazine’s Vulture website.

Gun-Humpers Awfully Quiet About 12-Year-Old Dead Boy Tamir Rice’s Open-Carry Rights. Huh.

But what about his Facebook page? have we found anything there to prove he deserved to die?
As everyone on the Internets knows, there’s nobody more dedicated to freedom and our precious rights as Americans than the Open Carry crowd. They love freedom, at least as long as it’s the freedom to walk around with an AR-15 anywhere you want to, and if someone says walking around packing heat just for the sake of pissing people off is stupid, then that critic obviously hates America and freedom, even if they’re the NRA. And if police ever hassle open carriers for carrying openly, you bet they’ll post indignant videos about how their rights are being menaced, and they’ll all shout “Moron Labia” and call for armed revolution if necessary.

Deleted Comments Of The Day: In Which We Hear From Some Turkeys

We elected not to use the Cosmo-Kramer-as-turkey image we first saw. You're welcome.
We really were planning to just get a couple of new posts up today and then coast on recipes while getting ready for Thanksgiving, but darned if we didn’t notice a couple of high-priority, short-shelf-life messages from idiots in the Comments queue. They simply would not wait until after the weekend, no sir. Read more on Deleted Comments Of The Day: In Which We Hear From Some Turkeys…

Donald Trump So Mad Obama Ruined America For Black People

This time he means it!
Photo by Gage Skidmore Donald Trump is a YOOOGE expert on many things — in fact, all the things — but one of all the things about which he knows more than anyone else is how President Obama turned our post-racial United States of Color-blind America into a cesspool of racial divide and hatred.

Ted Nugent All Racist About Ferguson, Nation Back To Normal

Still very much on the NRA board
Guys, we are trying so hard not to be All Ferguson All the Time, but then, dammit, along comes Ted Nugent and posts this idiocy to his Faceplace: Here’s the lessons from Ferguson America- Don’t let your kids growup to be thugs who think they can steal, assault & attack cops as a way of life & badge of black (dis)honor. Don’t preach your racist bullshit “no justice no peace” as blabbered by Obama’s racist Czar Al Not So Sharpton & their black klansmen. Say, did we mention that this man is on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association, and they wouldn’t dream of asking him to leave? The strongest thing the organization has ever said about the guy is “Ted is seen as Ted more than as an NRA board member.” Hey, he’s a rock star, he says wacky things is all.

Ben Stein Is Still A F*cking Racist Idiot

Would you buy a used socioeconomic argument from this man? (Also, the Flim Flam Brothers want their costumes back)
Great rightwing thinker Ben Stein — who no doubt breathes a sigh of relief every time he remembers that Newt Gingrich got called “a dumb person’s idea of a smart person” before that title could be bestowed on Ben Stein — has a fresh new understanding of where all of America’s problems with race come from: poor blacks, who were just on the verge of all becoming wealthy before they destroyed themselves with the drugs and the crime (and probably that hippity hop music), and then liberals enslaved them with government programs.

Eric Holder Sending Black Panthers To Steal All The Elections Again

You can tell they hate America since they don't have guns
The Department of Justice is sending federal monitors to observe elections in 18 states, and the Wingnuttosphere is pretty darned cheesed about it, because this can only lead to tyranny and the UN taking over and — worst of all — black people voting, many of them as often as once!!!

Pennsylvania School Board President Sorry If You Were Offended By His Hilariously Racist Videos

Brad Rigler
We do not know much about what a school board president or member in Pennsylvania does, but there are two things we can say for sure you should not do if you hold one of those positions. One, don’t be a screeching gun nut who proudly uses pictures of Nancy Pelosi for target practice. And two, if you have a channel full of YouTube videos you created of yourself making (or pretending to make) racist prank phone calls, take them down before your school district finds out about them.

Deleted Comments Of The Week: An Armed Society Will Teach Black Teens Some Manners

Scootaloo is neither a gun owner nor Jewish, as far as we know. She worships Rainbow Dash
It’s time for our weekly mucking-out of the ol’ comments queue — a chore that we manage to be more diligent about than we are when it comes to changing the water in our betta fish’s tank. Sorry about that, Flushy, but the slime is just a lot thicker in the comments queue. This week, we have some fresh steaming nonsense from a couple of Internet warriors who are quite unhappy at the life sentence handed to Florida sociopath Michael Dunn in the first-degree murder of Jordan Davis. According to one “Jim Smithill,” Jordan Davis got exactly what he deserved for being a black teenager in a vehicle that was rudely playing loud music — as we all know, it’s the thuggish rear-seat passengers who cause the most trouble: Read more on Deleted Comments Of The Week: An Armed Society Will Teach Black Teens Some Manners…

Cliven Bundy And His One Black Friend Star In Weirdest Political Ad Of 2014 (Video)

Oh, sure, we’ve called several ads weird, or even the weirdest. We thought maybe we’d seen all the weird that could be seen when Minneapolis mayoral candidate Jeff Wagner walked out of a lake holding a coffee cup last year, but this thing we are about to unleash on you poor Wonkers… well, it just blows Jeff Wagner out of the water.

Study: White People, You’re Racist

Scene from several documentaries by Dinesh D'Souza
Here’s some fascinating Social Science Facts for your consideration! A University of Delaware study found that 67% of whites supported voter ID laws — but that support jumped to 73% when the question was accompanied by a photograph of African Americans voting (it was the same 67% when the question had no photo or a photo of whites voting). In a press release, researcher David C. Wilson of the Center for Political Communication said, Read more on Study: White People, You’re Racist…
