Quote of the Day

Filed under: Politics — DRJ @ 5:16 pm



[Guest post by DRJ]

From GatewayPundit, here’s a quote from Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings on that bitter, clingy, racist Sarah Palin:

“Hastings, who is African-American, was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through,” Hastings added as the room erupted in laughter and applause.”

Hastings was Nancy Pelosi’s preference to chair the Intelligence Committee despite his impeachment and removal as a federal judge. Under pressure, Pelosi decided not to pick Hastings because of his controversial background.

By comparison, this comment isn’t controversial at all.

  1. So Hastings is equating Jews and blacks with moose? I mean, moose are animals, not people.

    Rob Crawford (b5d1c2)

  2. Disgusting.

    You go ahead and vote for that America.

    I dare you!

    Philip (21ed0a)

  3. It is always a shock to see how really racist the left is.

    Dana (4d3ea0)

  4. It is nice to know that a disgraced ex-judge realizes that Sarah isn’t in his class of people.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  5. Democrats – Proudly embracing racism since 1830!

    Perfect Sense (9d1b08)

  6. The real quote of the day:
    Free Sarah Palin

    Readnek (105b91)

  7. And another distraction from readnek. No hijacking allowed to draw attention from the Democrat Party Of Racism.

    Alcee Hastings, obviously an authority on thinking things through.

    Apogee (366e8b)

  8. Why, oh why, didn’t the Senate attaint Mr Hastings when they removed him from his federal judgeship?

    The astounded Dana (556f76)

  9. “So Hastings is equating Jews and blacks with moose? I mean, moose are animals, not people.”

    PETA disagrees!

    I really like Sarah Palin, but I am worried about her education level. She has a communications degree (I always snicker when I hear fellow students tell me that that’s their major), and from a rather unimpressive school too (Idaho, right?). Ugh, I hope the Dems don’t focus on her lack of experience. How should we respond when someone throws this at us:
    http://www.newsweek.com/id/160080/page/3

    Yikes. That is sort of my point.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  11. You’re impressed by Sam Harris ?

    He attended Stanford University as an English major, but dropped out of school following a life-altering experience with MDMA. During this period he studied Buddhism and meditation, and claims to have read hundreds of books on religion.
    After eleven years he returned to Stanford and completed a bachelor of arts degree in philosophy. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in neuroscience, using functional magnetic resonance imaging to conduct research into the neural basis of belief, disbelief, and uncertainty.

    MDMA is certainly a sign of high intelligence.

    U of Idaho is an excellent state university. Where did you graduate ? What are your degrees ?

    Sheesh !

    Mike K (2cf494)

  12. I really like Sarah Palin

    Another classic Trolly intro – sure you like her, Sweetheart.

    but I am worried about her education level.

    I’d be more worried about being exposed on your first try as an obvious astroturfer. Not too smart, are we?

    Then you end it with a link to Newsweek – priceless.

    Dmac (e639cc)

  13. So we are onto attacking our own kind, DMAC? WTF?! What is wrong with Newsweek?

    My degree is from Ohio State in mechanical engineering.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  14. Please “palinluvah” what kind of loser in their 40s is still relying on their college grades as the reason to be given a job?

    Oh thats right, Barry Obama has to point to his B+’s in college as accomplishments because he has failed at everything else.

    “Community organizer”…failed
    “Proof-reader at a financial magazine”…failed, of course, Barry tried to pass this spellcheck of other people’s market analysis off as some sort of Wall Street international business experience. Most people are fired for resume fraud, but not Liberals.
    “Attorney”….failed
    State Legislator..failed, unless you consider funnelling money to slumlord and allowing born-alive abortion survivors a success.

    Sad state of affairs that a significant portion of liberals believe that grades in classes 25 years ago qualifies one to be leader of the world.

    LogicalUS (742bd0)

  15. oh and less I forget his only executive experienced of any kind was the Annanberg boondoogle in which Obama lead in the wasting 45 million dollars attempting to turn Chicago education into Ayers Marxist indoctrination centers.

    LogicalUS (742bd0)

  16. So we don’t care about book smarts? What do we care about? I know we don’t care about communities, or about helping the poor. I’m sorry, I am new at the political game. Just give me the talking points so I can impress my shit-hippy friends.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  17. …from a rather unimpressive school too (Idaho, right?).

    Hate to point out the obvious but… you do realize that Obama is Harvard law educated, right???

    So resurrecting Roseanna Roseanna Dana, It just goes to show ya….that an Ivy League education does not guarantee a sharp candidate who is consistent or frankly, right about the issues.

    Dana (4d3ea0)

  18. oh and less I forget his only executive experience of any kind was the Annanberg boondoogle in which Obama lead in the wasting 45 million dollars attempting to turn Chicago education into Ayers’ Marxist indoctrination centers.

    Nice candidate.

    LogicalUS (742bd0)

  19. “from a rather unimpressive school too (Idaho, right?)”
    Where the hell did you go to school, you sniveling little snob?

    Jack Klompus (b0e238)

  20. Good point. Clinton was a Yale graduate and he didn’t know shit. The economy was in shambles when he left office.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  21. “I know we don’t care about communities, or about helping the poor.”
    What are you? 12?

    Jack Klompus (b0e238)

  22. I am trying to get my talking points down, Jack. Why are you attacking me?

    palinluvah (c313be)

  23. I really like Sarah Palin, but I am worried about her education level. She has a communications degree (I always snicker when I hear fellow students tell me that that’s their major), and from a rather unimpressive school too (Idaho, right?).

    Question, Palinluvah…..if you have a degree,as you claim, why are you talking about “fellow students”?

    If you’re going to troll, at least be consistent in your storytelling. Sheesh.

    But thanks for letting us know that Democrat partisans like yourself think anyone who majored in communications and went to a state school is stooopid and uneducated, and that only people who went to Harvard or an Ivy League school are worthy of being considered smart.

    Meanwhile, as to the Newsweek article, here’s your answer: “Why should it worry us that the person at the bottom of the Republican ticket has as much experience as the person at the top of the Democrat ticket? If inexperience makes one unfit to be President, why not question the inexperienced person who IS running for President?”

    North Dallas Thirty (efe6ff)

  24. Reread your own ridiculous assertions and that should answer your question.

    Jack Klompus (b0e238)

  25. Actually the bubble did burst during Clinton’s last year in office. We had a recession on our hands at the time. Guess Ohio State didn’t have you studying events of the last decade. Bummer

    sears poncho (319646)

  26. I am confused. At what point did I state I was a Democrat? Can’t you guys read?

    palinluvah (c313be)

  27. You forgot the crown jewel of his career thus far:

    “United States Senator for Illinois”. From which he’s too busy playing hooky to be bothered showing up for “the greatest market uncertainty since the Great Depression” but “I’ll be there if I can help.”

    The last quote I need to track down again, but it was a pretty clear admission that he doesn’t think he can help.

    Al (b624ac)

  28. Sure we can read. But you’re using bigoted liberal stereotypes of ‘the right,’ it makes your responses pretty amusing.

    “I know we don’t care about communities, or about helping the poor.”

    If you can’t find a problem with that statement, then you don’t know the first thing about the VRWC.

    Al (b624ac)

  29. I agree. McCain is really needed in congress right now. His economic knowledge is paramount to the market bailout operation.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  30. Oh thats right, Barry Obama has to point to his B+’s in college as accomplishments because he has failed at everything else.

    Where are his transcripts? Do you have a link? I’ve never seen them. What about his SATs?

    sears poncho (319646)

  31. We not only can read, we also comprehend quite well, and can see through flimsy “arguments” dressed up as something allegedly coherent.

    Your Poseur Troll status has been exposed.

    Dmac (e639cc)

  32. Haha. Jack is funny. I like him. He’s so paranoid he’s attacking his own kind, though. Makes me nervous for his kids.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  33. His economic knowledge is paramount to the market bailout operation.

    Yet more confirmation of Poseur Troll status – outdated, cliche’ – ridden snark. You really need some new material, Trollgirrrlll.

    Dmac (e639cc)

  34. I am trying to get my talking points down

    I think your underpants are showing.

    Dana (4d3ea0)

  35. What did I say that was an outdated cliche? You guys jump on me every time I state a positive about our candidate.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  36. Where you went to school is only somewhat important when applying for your first job.

    What you have accomplished after that is what counts.

    Dr. K (3677c5)

  37. Is your sceen name some type of anagram of Pavlovian Response?

    Dmac (e639cc)

  38. I agree, and I think people underestimate being the mayor of a small town.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  39. Why hijack this thread?

    Oh, that’s right, so…

    Back to the overtly racist comments by Alcee Hastings, the Democratic choice to head the House Intelligence Committee, at least until that stuff about his impeachment for bribery popped up.

    Oops.

    Perhaps the Democrat party’s habit of putting criminals in charge of large government operations might explain some of the mess the economy’s in.

    Apogee (366e8b)

  40. #35:

    What did I say that was an outdated cliche?

    We could start with:

    Makes me nervous for his kids.

    EW1(SG) (aebf24)

  41. Yes, they underestimate her being the mayor of a small town.

    But you totally discount her experience as a GOV. of the lagrest land-area state in the country.

    You, sir, are a troll.

    Dr. K (3677c5)

  42. Excuse me? You come on here and say, “I know we don’t care about communities or helping the poor,” and you expect to be taken the least bit seriously? You dismiss the accomplishment of receiving a degree from the University of Idaho as “not very impressive” and wonder why people have trouble believing your ruse? I’m calling you out on your snobbish and baseless assertions and you have the gall to refer to me as “paranoid”? And allow me to correct you that you are not my “own kind”, okay? I don’t have a “kind” but I recognize ignorance and foolish attempts to craft a persona that is clearly a ruse and a poor one at that.

    Jack Klompus (b0e238)

  43. Whew. I am sick of us conservatives being accused of racism all of the time.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  44. Which brings up a point.

    Anyone else ever notice that the press refers to Sen. McCain, Sen. Obama, Sen. Biden? They should because they are all sitting US Senators.

    But why does the press almost always refer to “Sarah Palin” as opposed to Gov. Palin?

    Shows some sort of bias, don’t you think?

    Dr. K (3677c5)

  45. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.

    I know that Dems don’t have to make sense~but just what the hell kind of connection do moose have to do with blacks and Jews?

    I mean, it’s not like ol’ Alcee is a renowned Judeophile.

    EW1(SG) (aebf24)

  46. Shows some sort of bias, don’t you think?

    No. It shows fear.

    Apogee (366e8b)

  47. Get your comments in quickly for Palinluvah aka AB. He may be banned soon.

    DRJ (c953ab)

  48. oh noo!!! I am going to be banned from this shitty ass site? What am I going to do on Friday nights? Fuck my sister and pop my zits while listening to Toby Keith? You people need hobbies, and fast. What are you going to do on November 5th? I hope it involves some rope, your neck, a stool and some ice cream.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  49. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Dmac (e639cc)

  50. Haha adios you little fucking dork!

    Jack Klompus (b0e238)

  51. #47 DRJ:

    He may be banned soon.

    Awww…okay, I’m over the loss.

    EW1(SG) (aebf24)

  52. Well, the unmasking of the pathetic idiot didn’t take long. Nice work, DRJ.

    Dmac (e639cc)

  53. It’s funny, it only takes just a little poking of a stick into their cages, and the cowardly animal shortly comes out.

    Dmac (e639cc)

  54. Don’t wait on my account, DRJ.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  55. Pathetic is not knowing anything about the economy, but pinning your failing presidential candidacy on the suspension of any real debate over what could be done. He can pretend all he wants, but McCain knows nothing about the economy. Neither does “i majored in education at a shitty state school” palin. Who, pray tell, is going to be an expert on foreign policy when Palin becomes president? I hope that Putin has a dispute over a neighbor’s tree peaking over a fence, because that is right up Palin’s alley.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  56. It’s funny, it only takes just a little poking of a stick into their cages, and the cowardly animal shortly comes out.

    correction, ‘their’ is plural so it should be “the cowardly animals shortly come out.” Did you major in communications too?

    palinluvah (c313be)

  57. Who, pray tell, is going to be an expert on foreign policy when Palin becomes president?

    I know you’re a troll, but I have to answer this one.

    Have you ever heard of a Secretary of State? Do you know why presidents have something traditionally called a cabinet?

    Rob Crawford (b5d1c2)

  58. If you ban me I’ll have to go back to going on actual dates. Won’t you guys/girls be jealous? Just like a conservative to try to silence dissention… banning books… etc.

    palinluvah (c313be)

  59. Well, then, I guess the president doesn’t have to know a damn thing then. My cousin is looking for a job, is it too late for him to get on the ballot?

    palinluvah (c313be)

  60. “a shitty state school”
    Thus sayeth the self-admitted state school graduate.

    Jack Klompus (b0e238)

  61. Substitute “Obama” for “McCain”, and “Biden” for “Palin” and you might have a point.

    But then again, you elites think you know all the answers, don’t you?

    Dr. K (3677c5)

  62. A Vice President with no foreign policy experience. Yep, that will be a disaster all right … like having Harry Truman become President.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  63. Ha, but I have a technical degree from a better state school. (It means I had to do actual work).

    palinluvah (c313be)

  64. What is amusing is the “shitty state school” comment. This from the party that believes that everyone has a right to go to college.

    If he is that dismissive of the “shitty state school” one can only imagine what he thinks of the people who never had a chance to go to college.

    Dr. K (3677c5)

  65. The lying sack of spit should be ignored. Didn’t take very long to admit that it is an asshole troll trying to bait others and hijack the thread. Hope he enjoy dangling from Obama’s nether regions. Can you imagine Obama negotiating with Putin or ImADamnNutjob doing his imitation of JimmuhCarter and Warren Christopher?

    madmax333 (0c6cfc)

  66. Ha, but I have a technical degree from a better state school. (It means I had to do actual work).

    You mean that second rate football factory that passes itself off as a bastion of engineering education? Try going to a REAL school.

    Dr. K (3677c5)

  67. I’ll have to go back to going on actual dates.

    You mean, back into your actual dates. Be careful, farm animals can be dangerous.

    Just like a conservative to try to silence dissention

    Seeing that you’re actually AB, and posting with a different name for some reason, it appears that your ‘dissention’ is actually just dishonest repetition in place of debate. You’re not here honestly, and you’ve added nothing but ad-homonym attacks dressed up in a phony package.

    Good riddance.

    Apogee (366e8b)

  68. Apogee, good news for him however. A state appellate court ruled that convictions for sex with animals don’t require sexual offender registration.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  69. Or thinking that anyone is impressed by the fact that an accredited university can hand a degree to such a stunningly immature, little cretin. He probably thinks we believe the part about him going on “actual dates” too.

    Jack Klompus (b0e238)

  70. Ah, well. I need to catch a plane from ChanChun to Shanghai and I have an hour long car ride. Then off to home tomorrow.

    Ciao for now.

    Dr. K (3677c5)

  71. palinluvah aka AB,

    As you almost certainly know, Patterico has a policy that commenters can’t use multiple names to make it seem like they are different people. You have taken it one step further, portraying a liberal under one name and a conservative under another.

    Thus, I’m virtually certain you will be banned and you have only yourself to blame. However, instead of banning you myself, I decided to leave it up to Patterico because sometimes he chooses to put commenters in moderation instead. I also let you stay because it’s so much fun seeing how quickly you lost your conservative beliefs once your second identity was revealed.

    DRJ (c953ab)

  72. Yeah oooooh wow Ohio State is a “real” school, the bestest school ever so f you Rethuglicans!

    Jack Klompus (b0e238)

  73. BUH-bye, palinluvah aka AB.

    Another example of a leftist lying to make his point.

    Patterico (cc3b34)

  74. I feel an alphabetic kinship, Dr. K. Safe travels.

    DRJ (c953ab)

  75. I’m a 78 year old war hero and grandfather. Also a Repbulican back to the Lincoln/Douglas Presidency, maybe our greatest President except for Raygun.

    I love Palin – just look at my nick. She’s rad and awesome but I’m concerned. Any McD’s manager can manage Alaska. And I’m concerned for my dog. She shoots dogs from helicopters. Maybe she can be put in prison.

    Does anyone else feel the same way (batting eyelashes)?????

    IHeartPalin (e59286)

  76. Clean up in aisle three.

    SPQR (26be8b)

  77. I see in a comment above I violated policy. I’m 76.

    Bel Aire (e59286)

  78. There are obviously too many mentally ill people on the streets these days.

    Dmac (e639cc)

  79. There are obviously too many mentally ill people on the streets these days – who have access to laptops.

    Dmac (e639cc)

  80. Iheartpalin is another horse’s ass. Coyotes are not considered dogs and are known to attack sheep and other livestock. Why don’t you DU/moron.org/huffsus/koskreeps get a friggin’ clue? now bioya your moby assclown.

    madmax333 (0c6cfc)

  81. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.

    Certainly part of that is true about the NYPD.

    The NYPD does tote guns; they do not strip moose.

    Does anyone have quotes from Hastings about dissolving or disarming the NYPD?

    Michael Ejercito (a757fd)

  82. I wonder how many of Hastings’ cousins and uncles and nephews, and so forth, have murdered blacks and jews. Probably many currently incarcerated ones that we can find without looking hard. Jews and blacks murdered by Alaskan moose hunters and their families ( including cousins, uncles, etc. )? – I’m guessing zero percent.

    If scum like Alcee is really considered about those who slaughter blacks, he needs to look inward and at those who vote for him.

    j curtis (3c4f3b)

  83. Alcee Hastings – today’s Worst Person In The Worrrrrrrrrllllllllddd!!!!!!

    At least until Olbermonkey appears on Letterman tonight.

    BTW, did you hear Conan O’Brien slam MSNBC last night for its anti-McCain bias? Good times!

    Icy Truth (d2ca3b)

  84. If scum like Alcee is really considered about those who slaughter blacks, he needs to look inward and at those who vote for him.

    That should say “If scum like Alcee is really concerned about those who slaughter blacks, he needs to look inward and at those who vote for him”

    j curtis (3c4f3b)

  85. Exposed troll AB, posing as worried quasi-conservative nincompoop “palin luvah,” wrote:

    She has a communications degree (I always snicker when I hear fellow students tell me that that’s their major), and from a rather unimpressive school too (Idaho, right?) .

    The truest thing you’ve typed in this thread are the last two words quoted above.

    You da ho. Right. 😀

    L.N. Smithee (ffab10)

  86. So Jews should fear a woman who uses guns and kills wild game? But they should trust a man who’s on friendly terms with Farrakhan and Sharpton?

    Interesting …

    Calvin Dodge (fefaa5)

  87. Thanks to Rep Alcee Hastings, I realize that I am a dangerous gun toting “moose stripper”

    My first thought was; *&E#@&$(*@# MY GOD WHY DO I HAVE TO LIVE WITH PEOPLE LIKE YOU SHARING THE SAME OXYGEN AS ME?!!!”

    But, after researching Rep Hastings, I would expect no less from him;

    In 1981, Hastings was charged with accepting a $150,000 bribe in exchange for a lenient sentence and a return of seized assets for 21 counts of racketeering by Frank and Thomas Romano, and of perjury in his testimony about the case. He was acquitted by a jury after his alleged co-conspirator, William Borders, refused to testify in court (resulting in a jail sentence for Borders).

    In 1988, the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives took up the case, and Hastings was impeached for bribery and perjury by a vote of 413-3. Voters to impeach included Democratic Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Steny Hoyer, John Conyers and Charles Rangel. He was then convicted in 1989 by the United States Senate, becoming the sixth federal judge in the history of the United States to be removed from office by the Senate. The vote on the first article was 69 for and 26 opposed, providing five votes more than the two-thirds of those present that were needed to convict. The first article accused the judge of conspiracy. Conviction on any single article was enough to remove the judge from office. The Senate vote cut across party lines, with Senator Patrick J. Leahy, Democrat of Vermont voting to convict his fellow party member, and Arlen Specter voting to acquit.[1]

    The Senate had the option to forbid Hastings from ever seeking federal office again, but did not do so. Alleged co-conspirator, attorney William Borders went to jail again for refusing to testify in the impeachment proceedings, but was later given a full pardon by Bill Clinton on his last day in office.[2]
