linda storm sorenson

Last week, an obviously racist meme appeared — AS IF BY MAGIC — on the personal Facebook page of one Linda Storm Sorenson, chairwoman of the Delta County Republican Central Committee in Colorado. Said meme featured a still from the terrible movie “Bedtime for Bonzo” in which terrible actor Ronald Reagan feeds a chimp from a baby bottle, with the accompanying text “I’ll be damned … Reagan used to babysit Obama.”

When approached about the meme by Jason Salzman, who broke the story on his site, Bigmedia.org, Sorenson took responsibility for the meme and insisted it was a hilarious joke, noting “I really don’t care if people are offended by it … Un-friend me. Stop looking at me on Facebook.” Which really does prove that Republicans are bad at both common decency and being funny.

However! Her colleagues on the committee have a different theory about how the meme got there altogether: HACKERS. Probably hackers from Media Matters! Because definitely not-racist person Linda Sorenson would never post something so obviously racist! They were more than happy to explain this to The Daily Sentinel:

“This whole thing is a hoax. Someone got into the Facebook somehow,” said Vic Ullrey, vice chairman of the committee. “It was hacked and somebody got into it, definitely.”

When asked why Sorenson was the specific target of the alleged hacking — possibly a federal crime, if true — Ullrey said, “I have no idea,” later adding, “Just to damage the Republican Party, no doubt. … Just to make us look bad,”

Sue Whittlesey, DCRCC treasurer, said, “That whole thing is bogus. Somebody hacked Linda Sorenson’s Facebook page, and posted that out there.”

“We believe it has something to do with (conservative-media watchdog) Media Matters. They’ve been harassing her the last few weeks,” Whittlesey said.

The whole theory definitely makes sense if you ignore the fact that Sorenson did actually post the picture herself and thought it was hilarious. Unless the evil Media Matters hackers actually, like, hacked her BRAIN somehow and are forcing her to post racist memes and think they are hilarious against her will. Which sure, is maybe also a possibility.

However, it’s going to be pretty awkward now if the Delta County Republican Central Committee now has to figure out a way to claim the meme was totally not racist after saying that the evil Media Matters hacker squad — which definitely is a real thing that exists — placed it there to make her look bad and racist, even though she is totally not racist at all. In fact, when Vic Ullrey was asked if she was racist, Vic Ullrey said “Absolutely not.” Which settles that, obviously.

    Media Matters? PFFT. Everybody knows Facebook itself HATES HATES HATES conservatives.

  • AngryBlakGuy

    …ok, on a serious note! Why the fuck do they continue to defend these racist ass weasels?! It takes more effort to cover up their stupidity than simply kick them out. I know all “conservatives” aren’t racist, so why do they put up with this bull shit. The GOP is a “Zombie” party at this point

    “When asked if he’s ever heard Sorenson say anything racist, he said, “Never.”” Which may even be true – depending on whose definition of “racist” one is judging.

  • Greg Comlish

    Off topic, but I’m very concerned that we’ll have another over-earnest over-cautious Democratic campaign that’s going to let Trump effectively set the terms of the debate. Trump will say outrageous bullshit and gin up media coverage. Then we end up “debating” some contrived, poorly framed question like whether or not all minorities really deserve the freedoms and privileges that America gives them. Minorities lose that debate just by the framing of the issue.

    There’s really no sense in debating Trump at all. He’s pure id and I think the way to attack him is simply with a series of disjointed images: Trump’s outrageous comments interspersed with clips of violent and disturbing footage: George Wallace, the KKK , chimpanzees infected with the rage virus. Then the debate can be about whether or not it was too extreme to associate Trump with the Klan. Obviously Trump loses that debate just by the framing of the issue.

    • Squirrel_t_robot

      A proper debate with Trump would be humiliating him as much as possible.

      He can’t stand it when people are mean to him.

      Not shame – Trump hasn’t any.

      But embarassment about his failures – that would work wonders.

      • SterWonk

        “A proper debate with Trump would be humiliating him as much as possible.”

        Sam: And then we were convinced by polling that he was going to be seen as arrogant no matter what performance he gave at the debate. And then that morning at 3:10 my phone rings. It’s Toby Zeigler; he says “Don’t you get it? It’s a gift, that they’re irreversibly convinced that he’s arrogant, ’cause then he can be.” If your guy’s seen that way, might as well knock some bodies down with it.

  • Lance Thrustwell

    Some people do look more chimpanzee-like than other people. We are, in fact, all of us simians – something that only RWNJs tend to deny. One could, on this basis, non-racistly argue that Obama is perhaps not the least simian-looking public figure out there. Of course, Stormfront Sorenson undoubtedly meant it in a racist, blacks-are-a-lower-species sort of way.

    But to illustrate my first point, it ain’t a black or white thing, it’s a human thing:

    • anon_the_great

      Wait, what? Our Prez least looks like a simian? I think you’re trying to be anti-racist here but you’re failing. It is not evah OK to talk about how much a black man does or doesn’t look like a chimp. Evah. In any context. Period. I know, I know, you have your rights an all, but I’m just tryin’ to help here.

      • Lance Thrustwell

        Oh, I know. I just have Utopian dreams where anyone can compare anyone else to some kind of lower simian, and it isn’t any more or less insulting whether they’re black or white – because everyone knows in their bones that every variety of human is exactly the same species – Homo Sapiens. But, sigh, I know that’s not the world we live in.

      • bupkus23

        Yeah, you’re trying to help, alright.

    If there were something funny about that (which there isn’t, intentionally anyway) it would be that the whole point of Bedtime for Bonzo was that Reagan’s character had to – and did – prove scientifically that there was no genetic basis for bad character.

    You know, I wonder if these things representing Obama as an ape ( of some sort or another ) are as much Republican’s idea of “payback” for all the times Bush was portrayed as a chimp. We already know how Republicans tend to repeat Democratic criticisms as smears ( like Bush’s vacation days, golf, and teleprompter use ) – except for one little detail.

    The thing is, there really was no racial component to the Bush caricatures ( and that what it originated as – a caricature, where specific features are exaggerated for comic effect ) – and there’s really no attempt to caricature Obama in these things ( I have seen caricatures of Obama, based on his ears – which even he says are big ). They just outright go for the racist “joke”.

    • Lance Thrustwell

      Most Republicans who do something like this would be quick to claim exactly what you’re saying – that they think he just looks like a chimp, it’s not a racist thing! (Or, alternately, that sure, they’re insulting him, but it’s because of his policies, not because of his race). But I think this just covers up the less convenient truth that many of them are just plain uncomfortable with an obviously intelligent, articulate, accomplished black man in the oval office. The ‘revenge’ they are taking is on that, not for Bush.

      • bupkus23

        I think my whole point was that in trying to get “payback”, those posting such crap fail, because they ignore the racist aspect of their portrayal.

        I do agree with Han, above, that it is all de-humanization of the other. And the desire to de-humanize comes out of their failure to attack with “meaningful” criticism. I beelieve that many of the attacks on Dubya also arose out of being unable to articulate intelligent criticism ( and, lord knows, he gave more than enough fuel – the effort to legitimately criticize him should have been minimal )

        But I was in no way trying to “excuse” the racism in Sorenson’s FB post – or the reaction of her fellow Republican committee members in trying to deny she posted it ( there’s something almost more disgusting than Sorenson’s unconscious/unapologetic racism – they clearly accept that the post was wrong, but cannot accept responsibility for it ( and trying to profit from it still, by blaming “Media Matters” ).

    • HanBarbara

      Well, those who you want to dehumanize, you first depict as animals. Here’s a link to cartoons of the Irish shown with ape like features (with a few African Americans thrown in) from Britain and the US https://thesocietypages.org/socimages/2011/01/28/irish-apes-tactics-of-de-humanization/
      But it’s really disingenuous for anyone who knows about recent history to claim that it’s not racist to portray black people as ape like. No payback involved, just racism.

    What is fucking amazing about this is THE WOMAN ADMITTED TO IT….and then the party denies it by blaming a hacker. I didn’t think it was possible that the Republicans could lower the value of truth to below zero but they have done it!

        Thanks, K! This what I sent:

        I am an older white woman who grew up in the South and I am very upset by your fucking “Obama as a chimp” photo. Want to know why I don’t find it funny, you humor-impaired assholes? Because my parents challenged segregation and as a result they were targeted by the KKK. Local Klansmen took to throwing copies of The Thunderbolt in our driveway at night. That was J. B. Stoner’s newspaper: the man who killed 4 little black girls in the Birmingham church bombing. Every single issue compared blacks to monkeys and even claimed that “Negroes were the result of human and ape matings.” You racist cretins who persist in spreading and laughing over this “black people look like monkeys” bullshit are a disgrace to this country as well as the whole human race.

        *Also, bitch’s phone number is (970) 210-6102 (haven’t called yet: too mad)

        • Zango LeHoonery

          That’s a nice missive there. I like the personal touch.

        • JustDon’tSayDittos

          please please please post the reply!

          • nightmoth

            So far, crickets.

          • JustDon’tSayDittos

            How about now?

          • nightmoth

            Still no email reply. The phone number: (970) 210-6102 DOES work and now that I’ve calmed down, I left Linda a message on her answering machine.

      I think that they see how blatant lying hasn’t affected Trump very much, and they figure that it won’t affect them either. Thanks, Donald.

    Actually, it’s possible. Republican brains have shown they have a negligible firewall and are incredibly easy to hack and infest with a virus. Typically this is done by sitting them in front of a television machine and turning on fox news

      People working on Trump’s campaign have complained that the policy proposals he makes in his speeches are often influenced by whatever the last person to talk to him said.

    Oh those silly folks, don’t they know in the age of t-Rump, that they can throw all of that c̶i̶v̶i̶l̶i̶t̶y̶ PC namby pamby pinko commie B.S out the window and speak their racist, xenophobic, anti gay speak in a loud, blustery voice, with their head held high?

    Hell, from what I’ve seen, the overtly racist politicians out there are actually doing really quite well….

    Trump has made racism OK again. Jim Hoft has this post:

    With the requisite comments:

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Jesus fuck. You know why it is seen through race? Because you racist fucknozzles started making black gorilla jokes like in seconds.
      Fuck these people with rusty votes and fuck Trump too.

      • Land Shark

        At least they admit Hillary will win.

    • OrdinaryJoe

      Not every event. Just the ones that are racist get seen through the “paradigm or race”, whatever the fuck that bit of argle bargle means.

    We are truly in the Age of Trump, when a thing can be both racist and not-racist, when a person can be both responsible and not-responsible for an action, when a politician can be both a complete fuckwit and not-a-complete fuckwit.

    I’m pretty sure this has something to do with the recent theoretical update on Schrodinger’s Cat, but I’m both smart and not-smart-enough to figure out what it is. http://www.outerplaces.com/science/item/12287-physicists-prove-that-schrodinger-s-cat-is-both-dead-and-alive

    I happen to live in Delta County, in the (mostly) liberal bastion of Paonia, which is about 30 miles east of Delta proper. A coworker once said, “If you only have a year to live, you should move to Delta, because it’ll seem like forever and you’ll be glad to go.” This is nothing. You should check out the anti-Obama billboards on the north side of town, or peruse the letters column of the “Western Slope Watchdog.”

      That part of the Rockies is more like Mississippi with snow.

      • Kele Lampe

        Not quite that bad. It depends what town you’re in.

  • thixotropic jerk

    Since she is a proud Trump supporter, I am surprised* by her inability to “ape” her leader’s programed response to evidence that he’s a racist by ignoring it, denying it, and then blaming the accuser of being the REAL racist. Pro Tip: you’re not going to stay chair of the Delta County Republiterds very long hogheart if you can’t spit out the official propaganda when required.

    *not surprised actually because she is a dumb

        • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

          I mention him because of how ironic it would be that such a bigot would be a fan of Dan’s. You completely mistook what I said and seem to be quite a dick.

          • theCryptofishist

            The only thing sad was your rebuttal, which again, was predictable in nature. You’ve lived up to your title admirably. I believe you’re lying about not knowing of a book aptly titled as stated in my response. I don’t care for such books and yet I know of it; a simple Google search beginning with either “listen” or “liberal” would show it.

            You can keep your nose pointed to the sky and mutter all of the demeaning little things you want. I could not give a single sh*t.

            “cell phone autocorrect”?! That would imply you believe there’s an actual word, “apposed” (with the ‘d’ – there actually is one without), which autocorrect would have chosen over “opposed”.

      Well, let’s look at few recent common decency examples among prominent Repubicans:

      Dennis Hastert – Confessed in open court to being a serial child molester.

      Josh Duggar – Fingered his little sisters, beat and attempted to strangle a hooker.

      Gamrat and Courser – ‘Nuff said.

      John Ensign – ‘Nuff said.

      And on and on and on. Don’t hand me that soft soap. The Party of Lincoln has morphed into the Party of Airport Bathroom Pervs.

      • Nicholas B Scott

        Josh Duggar? A “prominent” Republican? So are you sticking to legislators or is anyone associated with a party fair game? Because I’m pretty sure the Left has plenty of their own naughties. John Edwards? Anthony Weiner? Bill Clinton?

        • Celtic_Gnome

          Nice examples.Every one of ’em consensual. Unlike your standard Republican prevert.

          • Nicholas B Scott

            Wow, ok. Delusional level ONE THOUSAND. I’m not even going to dignify that with a response beyond the response I’m responding with.

          • Celtic_Gnome

            Ah, but you did dignify it with a response. Art, please tell our contestants and the studio audience about our lovely parting gifts.

          • Dr. Krieger IRL

            As parting gifts, we offer our contestants gift baskets overflowing with STFU and GTFO!

            Ha! He thinks he doesn’t notice that he is a contestant-worthy nincompoop.

          • Jena-Auerstedt

            Just show us on the doll where Nicholas B Scott did whatever it was that he did to you, child. And probably to lots of others

        • Mehmeisterjr

          You are so transparently duplicitious that I could almost believe that you are Josh Duggar himself.

          On June 18, 2013, it was announced that Josh Duggar of the television show 19 Kids and Counting would serve as the executive director of FRC Action, the non-profit and tax-exempt legislative action arm of Family Research Council.

          Springing board much? How much more prominent do you want?

          Pictures of Josh enthusiastically endorsed by the Palins? Huckabee? Santorum? Want more? He was clearly a rising star.

          Studiously, you chose the one golden boy who hadn’t yet run for office (but was clearly being groomed for future greatness) and avoided mentioning all of the actual office-holders I did cite. I didn’t even mention another Huckabee favorite, Justin Harris. Nor did I mention the serial killers that Huckabee inexpliciably set loose on the public. Nor did I mention his son’s curious history with animal abuse.

          And….

          Are you really equating Dennis Hastert with Anthony Weiner? Weiner was skeezy and we are well rid of him. It was embarrassing and he was promptly gone.

          Dennis was a serial child molester, as he himself was forced to admit in open court and the Republican establishment knew all about it. And they averted their eyes selected him as Speaker of the House, third in line for the Presidency.

          I realize that you follow the Ted Cruz rules of debate, which amount to making stuff up and shouting la-la-la loud while blocking you ears but remember that it was the Bush White House that mysteriously introduced a fake-reporter into the approved Press Corps who turned out to have to legitimate press credentials but did have credentials as a gay prostitute who pretended to be a Marine and who, when last heard from was hanging around military bases.

          We don’t even know who authorized his multiple entries to the White House because the Bushies stole the records and have sequestered them.

          So spare me your tippey-toe accidental self-revelations. It all rings hollow, pal.

          Hey, maybe you are Jeff Guckert/Gannon. If so, get yer nose out of the air. If not, still do so.

What disturbs me more than anything is the possibility we could lose a national election to people who think like this.

    • anna rampage

      Maybe I’m being too optimistic, but I think anyone who runs against trump is going to win by the biggest landslide ever.

      Typically the turn out for primaries only consists of those ardent supporters who rarely signify the support of the majority…

      • Dutchman

        I sincerely wish that I could share your optimism but I remain unconvinced that American’s as a group are not stupid enough to elect Trump.

        • Sakonyachen

          I think they are smart enough to not vote for Trump. But are they smart enough to vote against Trump? That remains to be seen unfortunately.

          • theCryptofishist

            Oh, I am so sick of the Bernie or Nothing crowd. I get it, his issues are my issues to a pretty large degree. I don’t see Hilary doing anything about income inequality. I will vote for Bernie on Tuesday.
            And, I have been reduced to saying “Whoever you vote for, vote for down ticket people, also, too” because that’s the only fucking good I can find in this.

            It’s actually a pretty small group of the full of shit. There were the PUMAs last go-round swearing they would vote for no one but Clinton. And that was against McCain. Now we have Trump. See how quiet they get when Bernie concedes. They are looking for Internet points. This was not a thing in ’08

    Why does the media even ask anymore? Is there anyone who is surprised by this anymore? They ARE racists; it’s obvious, it’s BEEN obvious since 2008. Report it as fact, and move on. Those that support them already know, and those that don’t support them shouldn’t be insulted by the ridiculous lies.

    SHE has more integrity than the VIce-Chairman, at least, even if she is racist scum. SHE admitted it. HE insulted everyone’s intelligence by coming up with the hacker story.

    Same thing when the Klan endorses Trump. Suddenly the media asks the GOP if they are ok with a Klan endorsement – the Klan is their BASE; they have been ok with Klan votes since 1964; why would an endorsement ever be a problem?

    It’s like the media thinks that there are Americans left who are not aware of the racial divisions and how the political parties exploit them. Weird.

    Wasn’t there a Linda Storm doing porn back in the 80s? I seem to remember that name from old VHS tapes. Is that the same person? If so, damn…! Time hasn’t been kind to her.

      • Odd Jørgensen

        Yes, people view porn, just awful ain`t it? Surely you would never stoop to such deprave and base instincts right?

        • DolCane

          We know that is about your level of entertainment. Animals are known to play with themselves and eat their own, and others, excrement.

  • E.A. Blair

    What happened to the Republican “virtue” of self-responsibility? Oh, yeah – it doesn’t apply to them. I’ve figured out why Republicans oppose comprehensive health care: if it weren’t for bacteria, they’d have no culture at all.

    • DolCane

      No, we oppose government control of healthcare. If you knew anything about geopolitical history you would know that when a government takes control of a society’s healthcare, it is the first step to a totalitarian regime. I’d rather have brains than “culture”; especially today’s culture.

      • MarkM

        I live in Canada jackass. Tell me all about how it’s a totalitarian state. You really are not much good for anything but regurgitating rightwing talking points are you? Do you have a sleep learning machine with old Rush Limbaugh shows in it on the nightstand?

        • theCryptofishist

          The Limbaugh it the fattest river in Africa, and the second fattest in the world.

          • MarkM

            And by far the oiliest.

      • SeeTrain65

        If you had been taught history from someone other than Alex Jones, maybe you’d have learned something.

      • The Wanderer

        Wrong. The United Kingdom is not a totalitarian country. Canada isn’t either. Neither are France, Germany, Iceland, etc.

        Your point’s disproved by simple observation.

      • anwisok

        Yes, absolutely! Why, let’s look at some totalitarian regimes that have bloomed after taking control of the nation’s healthcare: Sweden – nnnnnnnope. Denmark – also no. Finland – ummmmmm, no. Germany? France? Spain? No, no and no again. Great Britain? Canada?

        • natoslug

          Sure, cherry-pick among existing countries it may look like he’s wrong, but if you add in all of the imaginary countries bouncing around in DolCane’s vacant skull, you’d see that the real ones are in the minority.

      • Pierre_de_Fermat

        Wow, so that’s how it happens. Was that how the Commies took over Czechoslovakia in ’47? And the gov’t control of healthcare is … like fluoride? Done by insurance companies? So the insurance companies are conspiring to set up a totalitarian government? Are there more of these “geopolitical history” things that you know/imagine? We really need to know because it is getting so difficult to distinguish RWNJs from The Onion. You guys might be having these problems as well.

    • E.A. Blair

      It’s obvious that the poster “Guest”, formerly known as DolCane, is totally clueless when it comes to recognizing snark, and is therefore unqualified to read Wonkette.

  • DolCane

    Yeah, because Left-Wing nut job, Commie Marxist Demoncrats are such examples of virtue and always “respectful” when speaking about Christians and Conservatives. Not!

    Is the meme in poor taste? Absolutely. Does it rise to the level of being racist? Definitely not!

    What is more racist? Wanting to give people in need a hand up, or a hand out? Demoncrats are interested in the latter because they prefer to keep people enslaved to the government so they can garner votes, instead of helping people climb the economic ladder so they are no longer in need of government handouts.

    But carry on with your ignorance. People are getting wise.

    • Salmon River Libby

        Well, if it makes you feel any better; I believe that monkeys have more brains than libtards like you. Feel better now?

        Oh, that was a cogent, thought out response. For a third grader.

        • Snuff

          A response equal to the the level of the discourse, you’ve presented so far.

        • SeeTrain65

          Thank you, pre-schooler.

        • SnarkOff

          A third grader would say “poopferbrains.” “Shitferbrains” is much more sophisticated.

        • MarkM

          “cogent, thought out response” is redundant. Cogency implies thought. You clearly don’t have much knowledge of proper English – or much of anything else, for that matter.

    • Walter Wellstone

      No, that’s not it. The whole thing is racist. What happens is that being racist is not a problem with conservatives. When we express outrage at these things you people act surprised and look for false equivalences. So, knowing that, we reserve the right to call conservatives whatever we want because racists don’t deserve any respect.

      • DolCane

        False equivalence? Typical response. Thanks for proving my point. Libs always look past the actual thought and interject their own warped mindset as a substitute. But carry on with your delusion. So knowing how you think; we reserve the right to call you out. Liberal, anti-American, Commie Marxists don’t deserve any respect.

        • Walter Wellstone

          So, what’s your problem? Is it that we have an issue with the whole episode reeking of racism? Is it that we’re calling you people out on it? Should we just let it go and laugh about it? Is it OK in your mind to compare the President with a chimpanzee?

        • nightmoth

          Intolerant haters like you who clearly state that they don’t respect other viewpoints are the anti-Americans here.

        • SeeTrain65

          Yeah, “liberals” do that. You had 17 candidates who couldn’t tell their asses from their elbows, and you just gave the nomination to the one that can’t get his facts straight in the same sentence.

          Tell me again who doesn’t deserve respect, you teabagging hypocrite.

    • nightmoth

      Hey, asshole— That “black people look like monkeys”meme is about as racist as it gets, and was very popular with the KKK down in Georgia where i grew up. You give Christians a bad name–that’s why we call hypocritical pricks like you “christianists” around these parts. When have you ever given anybody a hand up OR a hand out? Way to repeat an unoriginal talking point, little parrot..

    • qadesh

      Too bad that you are not getting wise. Yours was a typical reichwing fundie nutjob racist, ignorant hate-filled screed.

        He’s at least inspired me to think about writing a series of books on democracy in Hell.
        “The Demoncrats have argued that the rich are being subjected to less eternal suffering than the poor, while the Republicangels argue that the poor are simply unwilling to lift themselves up out of the circles where the most suffering occurs.
        Satan has remained silent on the topic, perhaps because he is saving his energy for his new bill, the Affordable Torture Act, meant to bring a certain level of suffering to all.”

    • anna rampage

      Okay, perhaps my first response was a little harsh, and I apologize if I came off as being a little offensive. My bad….

      It appears you don’t really have a good grasp as to what kind of “humor” or other forms of communication would be considered offensive to minorities, so my suggestion is this. The next time you’re hanging out with your friends who are African American, ask them if they feel that being compared to a monkey would be considered racism in their world….

      Oh, I’m sorry, you probably don’t have any actual black friends…

      So if you don’t, perhaps you could go down to the local African American church, sit through one of their services, and at the end of the day, take a random polling of the congregants to see if they would consider this meme to be racist, and see what kind of response you get…

      • MarkM

        I doubt if his pals at the klavern would disabuse him of the notion that comparing black people to apes isn’t racist.

    Note to republicans, before you post something that might be considered racially insensitive, or out right racist, it might be best to check in with a friend who belongs to the minority you’re about to disparage, and see if they find it funny, or racist & offensive.

    And if you do post something that people point out as being racist, homophobic, sexist, or whatever, before you blow it off as being funny and that people are just being too c̶i̶v̶i̶l̶ “P.C”, check in with someone from the group you just disparaged to see if they find it funny, or offensive.

    • Kaki Maguire

      Except that Republicans do not have friends who are minorities…

    Sorenson says, “If you don’t like it, lump it,” but her colleagues claim her page was hacked. I am confused. Why would someone hack her page to post something she thinks is appropriate? I don’t think that’s how it works.

  • At the corner, turn left

    Here in Japan, when a particularly large earthquake hits, all the cell phones around the area go ‘whoop, whoop, whoop’ alerting everyone to the event. Could you here at Wonkette devise some sort of international troll alert system so we can join in the fun before the troll gets banhammered? Real-time mockery is such fun. Please?

    Over at Democratic Underground, we used to call Dubya “Chimpy” throughout his time in office because of his vaguely simian features, and we thought it great fun. In fact, a couple of days before he was sworn in, Salon published a story titled “Hail to the Chimp” and that kind of got it started. And as you can see from this graphic, we did this over and over and over and over and over for eight years because, as I said, it was great fun. Perhaps we might want to keep that in mind as we criticize this spinny GOP twat.

      The difference is that there aren’t decades-to-centuries of racist implications when you say a dumb white asshole looks like a monkey.

      • DrCaligari

        Yes, I understand the difference between a black president and a dumb white asshole. I’m only saying we should keep our former behaviour in mind, or we run the risk of seeming a tad hypocritical.

        • rantingcitizen

          “a tad hypocritical” to the racists that still carry the attitudes of southern whites of a hundred years ago? I really don’t care, they cannot be salvaged anyway.

    • christina dobbs

      Except, in thi case, one is insulting the monkey not the former president…lol

    • Vegan and Tiara

      Some things just never get old.

    • There is a difference between calling a white man a monkey and calling a black man a monkey. That’s just a FACT. Problem with it? Talk to centuries of racism.

      • rantingcitizen

        Spot on. When my sophomore HS guidance counselor in North Carolina, with a masters from the University of NC, told me that blacks were not human beings I knew that the south was a lost cause. That was confirmed when my Florida HS senior English teacher quit teaching in my senior year because our school was facing court ordered integration the next year. That was 1966 in Orlando. These people are still there and haven’t changed. Many of their children and grandchildren are the same as their older family members. If better minds prevail, we are still easily 100 years from this kind of crap ending.

    • Your ….concern… is duly noted.

  • Bonnie

    You have to excuse her, she is a Republican female candidate. Didn’t Phyllis S. give us instructions on how to be a Republican female candidate or wife. Wrap yourself up in saran wrap when you great your husband, and ask for his assistance on any thought. You’ll have to excuse her bigoted, blustering, it comes with the territory. She handed her brain over before she reached adulthood.

  • Cranky Man

    Hey! Cranky was born there. When my dad got a job in CA , at the tearful goodbyes with the grandparents, grandpa showed me a model 94 30 – 30. “This is yours now, your Dad will keep it for you until you’re old enough to shoot niggers and Japs, there’s a lot of them where you’re going” my dearest child hood friends were Mason and Hector, a Japanese kid and a Columbian kid.

  • Mark McCauley

    Poor racist Can’t Understand Normal Thinking. At least she has the Colorado GOP there to apologize for her, claim she didn’t do it, and lie for her.

    • Why do you think posting a SEXIST picture is an appropriate response to a RACIST picture?

      FYI: women do not like that word. Not even when it’s used against despicable people like Sorenson.

      • Mark McCauley

        Get your panties out of that bunch. The word has no gender connotation any more, regardless of your “righteousness”.

  • Roy Jones

    Could be she was just incredibly stupid but, truth to tell, I’ve never met a bigot who wasn’t also a fool.

  • hankusmc

    Couldn’t have been true if it was a hoax or not. Everybody knows the difference between a human and a monkey, even stupid people. :-)

  • j d jackson

    This stupid bigot is one fat ugly bitch to be calling names. I could say I think she is a stupid slut and ass monkey for the Holy blow boys of the far right .

  • Jana Logan

    Still wondering what the big debate is here……
    This poor excuse for a potus IS a monkey-devil reincarnate. Period. She stated her opinion, it’s valid. She’s free to do so. The truth has always hurt the liberal scum. So, to all of you bleeders out there, I hope you can cry enough tears to put out the flames that will engulf the Obama’s asses when theyre in HELL. ??

    • But no, you’re not a racist, are you…? Scum.

      • Jana Logan

        Awww….boohoo

    • Felicia Brown

      If they go to hell you will be there with them with all the hatred you are spewing. It is okay to disagree with the president on policy issues but to attack him personally calling him names and scum is pure racists and downright hateful. How the hell you look at yourself with all that venom spewing out.

      • Jana Logan

        Aww…boohoo

    • Georgette

      My dear, hell is for hateful and evil people. Please read your Bible. I am sure from reading your post, you will be at the very bottom of hell before Obama will.

      • Jana Logan

        Aww….boohoo

    • doktorzoom

      Huh. Suddenly a whole bunch of comments on a month-old story? Weird. Oh, also, “Jana Logan,” congratulations on creating a Disqus account solely for the purpose of posting this drivel. And here’s your very own Fourth Of July Banhammer.

      • Jana Logan

    Hehe….it’s fun pissing off all you lib scum…. Hearing you grasp makes me laugh?

    • Liberal business owner

      A POS like you doesn’t piss me off. I realize that you are too much of a moron to care anything what you say.

    • Bob Pineo

      “Hearing you grasp”?????……you imbecile.

    • TheMadProfessor

      I’m listening to hear you grasp why your post proves you’re an idiot.

  • tariq

    A privileged class (white) politician in America is a racist? How shocking.

  • Fred Derf

    he he he, what a bunch of morons – your propaganda didn’t work, Pres. Trump and the Repubicans now rule, that F00L obama (no, someone pointing out that obama is a complete incompetent failure is not a racist – they are just pointing out the facts) is history as are his idiotic attempts to destroy the U.S.
