Businessman Carl Paladino is not a popular guy. He is very unpopular in Buffalo, New York, where no one likes him, and even his own son is always like “GOD DAD, please stop embarrassing me and my company with your terrible Archie Bunker shit.”

In an email blast earlier this week, Carl sent out a deluge of dumb, racist memes to everyone on his contacts list, including one declaring March to be “Stop Blaming White People Month.”

See! It’s funny because systemic oppression is all in your mind! Or something! Either that or Carl Paladino just really wants a hug. I am going with the latter, because he seems like a very lonely person who has probably alienated everyone in his personal life. Otherwise, he’d probably do what other jerks do and just send out his weird email blasts and chain letters to his friends and family members. Now, he’s just sitting around like Stella Dallas’s daughter wondering why no one came to his Stop Blaming White People party.

The saddest thing about “Stop Blaming White People Month” — other than Carl just really needing a hug — is that the only people celebrating it are, in fact, white people like Carl Paladino. Which really doesn’t work because probably Carl Paladino is not blaming white people for anything (except being AWESOME!) to begin with. White people are super great, says Carl Paladino, who is definitely one of them, in case you were questioning that. You can tell this because of how racist he is being.

Said email blast also included a real clever meme on how the Democratic party is the world’s biggest hate group, because they hate rich, white, straight men who never did no one any harm.

Yes, surely it is a conspiracy.

Paladino, who is by the way a school board member, also included a swell meme about running protesters over with a truck.

OH, and also Russia is great and Democrats are bad, something something Kermit.

When the NY Daily News contacted Paladino about the memes, he responded by saying “It’s pure unadulterated humor” and “Get a life.”

And therein lies the problem, Carl. If you have to tell people something is supposed to be funny, it almost definitely is not actually funny. These memes, and going around saying “LOL what if Obama had sex with a mad cow and then got mad cow disease! That would be cool huh!”? Not funny. And also probably why your family is not hugging you or taking your email blasts anymore, and why you never made it as a stand-up comic.

    He’s right about democrats hating people. I certainly hate this asshole.

    • BearDeLaOursistance

      Nevertheless, the fact you’re willing to regard him as “people” speaks to your considerable generosity of spirit.

    Funny thing, when Carl was a kid, Italian wasn’t white yet in much of the USA.

    • laughingnome

      It was one them there whatcha call ethnics.

    • Lizzietish81

      My Right Wing Friend keeps posting memes about how her grandparents came in the right way and worked hard and shit.

      Soon I will let her know that they were probably spit on too for being Italian.

      • teele

        Except they probably didn’t tell her about that because they couldn’t speak English, and she never learned Italian. Memory is a bitch.

      • Little Lulu Ω

        I recall watching The Tonight Show in the 1960s (probably with Joey Bishop subbing) and Jimmy Dean was the first guest. The two were telling “jokes,” and Jimmy Dean asked Joey if he knew the sound that the Pope’s helicopter made when it landed at the Vatican. Joey gamely replied, no, but he seemed a little uneasy. Dean made a spinning motion with his hand and said, “Wop! Wop! Wop!” Dean cracked up like the cracker he is; Joey Bishop changed the subject.

    • BearDeLaOursistance

      Logic’s never the strong suit with this crowd. He’s probably the type who would fight to the death for the right to say “n{{clang}}”, but would send you flying across the room for “dago”.

            I’m calling you an Italian hippie!

    • Michael Smith

      If there ever actually were a “White History Month,” I would want it to focus on this – What is white? When people start calling themselves / others white? Why did that happen? How does a group become white? What are the requirements? Are there any groups who will never be white? Why?

    • wait! what?

      They had to edit out the ‘Sicilian speech’ in “True Romance” before Carl could watch that movie, too.

    I’m still not seeing this journalist thing. On the whole, they don’t really seem the sort of people to work tirelessly at anything, but when they do work, it seems to involve bending over backwards to give republicans a rather more than fair shake.

    • mancityRed6

      anything short of mindless fawning and accepting whatever the Republicans say as the spoken word of God means they work for the Democratic party.

    Maybe if he got together with the straight pride people he’d be able to carpool.

      He did run for governor of New York and got fucked. With votes.

      • The Wanderer

        Good. He needs to keep on getting fucked. With votes.

        • teele

          Because, honestly, who else is going to fuck him?

      • Spurning Beer

        The School Board hates him, too.

  • MizzMazz

    These guys aren’t funny. Ever. They can’t be; they don’t have the mental capacity. Truck meme: hurting people. Hahaha! Kermit one, well that’s just a stupid strawman, and not funny at all, and the top one? Pure projection.

        Video is a little annoying, but they have great words that pack the insult in, just like the French have for cooking.

    • ziggywiggy

      Of course this is the creep who thinks this is funny: “I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortable in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla.” talking about first lady Michelle Obama.

      • MizzMazz

        Despicable. Deplorable. Disgusting, and all other words that are synonyms. Michelle is a lady I would be proud to meet, and work in her garden with her. There is nothing bad about her, nothing at all, but these assholes…they have nothing, so they go to appearance and not-so-veiled racism.

    Those “jokes” are so pathetically unfunny it’s almost sad. If this guy wasn’t such a racist douchebag I could feel sorry for the loser.

    • Lascauxcaveman

      If I was a born and bred, unapologetic racist with a poor understanding of the world around me, and had the mentality of a 12-year-old schoolyard bully, I would think they’re funny.

    The Democrat (sic) Party is the world’s most successful hate group. It attracts poor people who hate rich people, black people who hate white people, gay people who hate straight people, feminists who hate men, environmentalists who hate the internal combustion engine, and a lot of bratty college kids who hate their parents.

    Whereas the Republic (sic) Party attracts….old racist white guys, young racist white guys, a whole bunch of really stupid people, and the superrich who only hate taxes.

    It’s a bit sad that they do in fact trust Russia more than democrats. We know that because they colluded with Russia, Assange and Comey to fix the election.

      One of my best friends is a Palladino with 2 LLs. Her paternal grandparents came to NY from Italy. She moved to TN with her Mom when her parents split, and that’s when we met. She was 13. She was spit on and called a Mexican, as though that’s a terrible thing to be, by the lovely white schoolchildren on the bus, because she has Italian heritage and a darker complexion than most of the people in my area. This was the mid-nineties. Carl has no motherfucking clue what he’s talking about. But we knew that already.

  • Ms.MLG on Maui

    A word of advice for young Wonketeers from someone who grew up almost solely around white Republican males-

    Do not let them hug you. Just don’t.

      • Ms.MLG on Maui

        No hugs. None.

    What a pathetic little man. Servile authoritarian little pig.

  • Bub the Hoohah! loving Zombie

    How funny would a jet black Cadillac Escalade with “Black Lives Matter” on the doors and a “MAGA” plow on the front be to ‘ol Carl I wonder?

    • The Wanderer

      I think the sheer dissonance would cause his head to explode.

    • It’s okay when rethugs do it.

    • Alan

      That would be different and definitely not funny.

  • Rick Hill

    You see? Conservatives are never…NEVER…intentionally funny. Here, lemme tell you a real funny joke:
    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    Because there’s a frickin’ moron in the WH

  • Nick Scroggs

    Basically soudns like every freaking meme and “joke” form 90s Republican circles. I cannot think of nay straight-hating gay people, men-hating feminists, or parent-hating college students that I’ve seen in person in my life. Come to think of it… Andrea Dworkin, whatshername who shot Warhol… Maybe Carl Paladino’s still stuck in the 1960s? Edit, like some freaky kind of mind-time displacement like the Boys of Silence in Bioshock Infinite?

    • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

      It’s all a substitute for thinking. The 1990’s (pre Limbaugh) is the last time they actually did any thinking, so they are stuck there.

      • CatCafe #ShePurrsisted

        You’re off by just a bit, the last time they did any thinking was when they only had lizard cortexes, so they are stuck THERE.

  • Relativicus

    “Paladino” is a Northern European name?

    • Latverian Diplomat

      Is a misspelling of paleo-dino, i.e., old dinosaur.

    • The Wanderer

      To him, maybe.

  • BeverlyCrusher’sWig

    They can’t even meme correctly! There isn’t a confederate flag anywhere near that Trump plow.

  • Tiny kaiju

    Every day is Ignore Carl Paladino Because He’s an Asshole Day

  • pgjack

    This is one of Trump’s many gifts: say anything you want that offends anyone you want to offend and when you are called out on it just claim it was a joke. Ha, ha.

  • Bub the Hoohah! loving Zombie

    Ya know, I find myself agreeing with Carl on this. The REAL problem in America is how terribly disadvantaged and downtrodden white people are.

  • Tony Emond

    As a racist asshole in New York, Paladino feels the need to prove that he’s the most racist, biggest asshole around. ’cause things are bigger in New York, or whatever.

    • I thought that was a Texas thing?

      • Hardly Ideal

        I thought Lewis Black put it pretty well once: “Don’t mess with Texas?” How about “Don’t fuck with New York?”

    • Bitter Scribe

      He’s from Buffalo, where there apparently are a lot of nice people, too.

      The current New Yorker has a well done and absolutely infuriating and heartbreaking feature on a safe house for immigrants that operates in an abandoned school in Buffalo. The people there, most of them volunteers, do everything they can to comfort these desperate people, many of whom are heartsick over being separated from children and other family. But it’s in a shitty part of town and there’s the constant fear of being picked up, so the residents are effectively forced to stay inside, prisoners. ICE so far is keeping its hands off, but workers and residents alike live under the fear that they could be raided at any moment.

      Read it if you can. There’s an explanation of the ridiculous situation that makes it better in some cases for immigrants to enter Canada illegally (as outlined in a previous Wonkette post).

      • Bebecca

        We have become horrible as a nation.

  • Bitter Scribe

    How is this asswipe still on the Buffalo school board?

    • CatCafe #ShePurrsisted

      Because people don’t fucking vote in local fucking elections. We just had an 11% turnout in fucking Los Angeles, where our ballot included a spot on the LAUSD school board, and TWO candidates were being put forward by pro-deVos billionaires avowedly supporting for-profit charter schools, who spent millions on a smear campaign against a devoted, hardworking teacher, and now we are facing a fucking run off between one of the funnel-tax-dollars-into-for-profit-schools guys and the teacher fella. ELEVEN PERCENT.

      • Bitter Scribe

        I’m afraid you’ve put your finger on it.

  • I thought a paladino was a horse with a spotted ass?

    • Doug Langley

      Nah, it’s a character you run in D&D.

      • Hardly Ideal

        I thought paladins were lawful-good alignment. Most paladinos seem to be awful-stupid.

  • Republicans are genetically incapable of comedy. This is a well known science fact.

  • Greyhame

    I mean being a racist asshole is bad enough, but his terrible attempts at meme comedy are just pathetic.

  • Scrofula

    Carl, you stupid bastard, you are taking a broad demonstrable truth about white people fucking up the world, and making it specific, to YOU, by becoming a Stupid White Man. Get over yourself, FFS.

  • nightmoth

    Re: blaming white people, why can’t blacks just get over it, I never owned slaves, etc., etc., ad nauseam—This is what William Faulkner had to say:
    “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.”

    • mardam422

      That can’t be from the Bible. How can it be when it doesn’t say I can discriminate against someone other than me?

  • YoBunnyBunny

    How about a month for white people like him “TO STOP BLAMING POLITICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY DISENFRANCHISED PEOPLE–who also happen to be a lot smarter than you–FOR WHY YOUR JOKES ARE STUPID, NOT FUNNY, AND YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD!!!!”

    I like the ring of that…

  • Leave Kermit out of this, asshole. You’re looking for Pepe.

    • Tiny kaiju

      And like bread dough…well, you know how it goes.

  • Tiny kaiju

    …why you never made it as a stand-up comic.
    It is also why he never made it to being Governor of New York

  • WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot

    Man, racists and conservatives sure use words wrong. Hatred is intense ill-will, a republican emotion i.e. this idiots memes. Disgust is revulsion caused by something unpleasant or offensive i.e. a liberal emotion that causes conservative hatred….because we’re better than they are.

    • CatCafe #ShePurrsisted

      If they had cognition, they’d be able to function with something other than their lizard cortexes.

  • SeriousSummer

    He sounds Italian, not white, to me.

    • CatCafe #ShePurrsisted

      I mean, right??

  • Panika MCD

    maybe he could start by taking responsibility for his own bad choices…?

  • Hairstrike Alpha

    Carl is a real hit at the KKKs annual mixer. Best stand up comedian ever according to sister fucker weekly!

  • fawkedifiknow

    Low life’s like this guy have been waiting their whole lives to support an asshole like Trump, so I suppose we can’t act surprised now.

  • Stephanie Rakowski

    He and McCrory can give each other the hugs they obviously missed out on as children

  • Edith Prickly

    Any Paladino ain’t a pal of mine. What a fucking douchebag.

  • Edith Prickly

    I know this sort of guy all too well. They bitch about “political correctness” when nobody laughs at their shitty racist/sexist/etc. jokes, but don’t you dare criticize one of their heroes. The bag of salted dicks with your name on it is over there, Carl.

    • Hardly Ideal

      I forget where I saw it and it’d a bit OT, but someone tweeted something to the effect of:

      “Millennials can’t take a joke”
      Dude, we stay up late at night reading goofy shit on the Internet. We just don’t like racism.

    • davidhollenshead

      They also decide who is considered “white”.

  • John Resistant Tovarich Smith

    No Carl, I only hate YOU! You fuckstick.

  • Doug Langley

    Why does it not surprise me this asshole is a businessman?

    • davidhollenshead

      White Privilege ???

  • Persistent Demme

    KERMIT LIBELZ!!!!
    (You people have your own frog, use him instead!)

  • Hardly Ideal

    That truck meme is just lovely. I guess he’s taking his tips from Egyptian dictators?

  • sgt. jmk of the résistance

    When life gets a little frustrating, and things aren’t quite going my way, I sometimes cheer myself up by remembering how badly Paladino was spanked in the 2010 governor’s race in New York, and the pleasure I took in not voting for him.

    And yeah… Carl, cupcake… in future, use your own scummy excuse for an amphibian. Kermit’s on MY team.

  • psychobroad

    Wasn’t he the guy that fucked a horse?

    • mailman27

      Yes. Yes, he was. So I heard.

  • CATMAN

    The pickup truck proves my contention that the bigger the tires are on the truck, the bigger the asshole behind the wheel will be

    • davidhollenshead

      You know which trucks are not used for work, by the hight of the lift kit.

  • Iron Monkey

    Must be that Carl needs a hug because he is one of the whitest people I have ever heard of.

  • HorseChestnut

    Please, tell me how poor your community is and how much economic anxiety you have, while driving around a fat pile of flaming money with a lift kit. Keep calling me lazy, while you drive it a quarter-mile down the road to get smokes. If you shout loudly enough, it might become true!

    • davidhollenshead

      Those tires cost a grand per tire.

      • HorseChestnut

        EXACTLY. Thank you.

  • James

    Paladino is also the guy who went after the Khan family, implying they were terrorists and by extension, Gold Star Family members who came to their defense were terrorism supporters.

    • Keith Taylor

      What a charmer. Being a soft libtard I won’t wish anything really hideous upon him, like leprosy or elephantiasis, but I can’t help hoping he gets ingrown toenails. And never mind Jim Henson. KERMIT should sue him. The idea that Kermit is not actually a real person is just another conspiracy theory.

      • davidhollenshead

        Kermit is real, and recently told me that Paladino is not a real person, only a Lizard Man in a Human Skin Suit.

  • UpstateNYObserver

    Hope they’re paying Henson’s for using Kermit’s image…that’s most definitely a copyright infringement. Palladino got fairly deep pockets to pluck some serious dollars out of too. That would be fun to watch. Jim Henson’s Creature Shop — is that an image you want Kermit associated with?

  • mardam422

    Carl Paladino is an asshole. Now THAT’s pure, unadalterated humor, I don’t care who you are.

    • Lefty Wright

      You have to phrase it like a joke. Try it this way. Say “What’s the difference between Carl Paladino and an asshole”. Wait a few seconds for the right timing, then say ” Nothing”.

      See. Much more funnier.

    • HarpyLibtart

      That’s an insult to assholes, which are useful for keeping random shit-dribbles IN, unlike the anal fissure, which is way grosser, hurtful and allows indiscriminate poop-leakage.

  • Weevie

    And ALL those people in his email rant run on list thing hate him. Success at last!

  • azeyote

    i doubt he could get a hug even if he payed for one – although there’s always pee hookers if that would do

  • Heyzeus Ahchay

    Hey, Carl, dude — I just met you and not even in person and I already hate you! Maybe I should switch my party affiliation to Democrat so you won’t be a lying asshole (just an asshole). Go hug a bag of dicks.

  • Celtic_Gnome

    I wonder if it’s difficult to play the victim card while controlling all three branches of government on the federal level and a majority of the state legislatures?

    • HarpyLibtart

      No, there is no end to the oppression of the mediocre white man…
      Not only they now have to compete with gross icky wimmenz for jobs without the benefit of having sandwiches made for them anymore, they have to keep redrawing districts and getting headaches trying to think up voter ID laws because scary ethnic people want to participate in democracy when they’re not busy with the white genocide, those slutty feminist harpies keep being mean to them when they’re just trying to impose some good Christian order on their unruly vaginas and now these race-traitor libtards are attacking them every time they try to relax with some good old-fashioned poor-fucking and racism lulz, acting like they’re bad people or something…
      It’s reverse racism, is what that is. :P

    • Chris

      It’s a hard job but I’m confident the current crop of Republicans is up to the task.

  • mailman27

    He totally blew it in the Kermit thing, missing a chance to say “Democrat” party on the bottom line of the otherwise hilarious meme thingy. Sad.

  • Goposaur
