Join me in pointing and laughing at two complete morons from the Party of Our Betters. No larger message to take away here. This post is all about joyous, unrestrained mockery.
The first subject of mockery is Alvin Holmes, who had these lovely remarks to make on the legislative floor:
State representative Alvin Holmes (D) Montgomery, said republican lawmakers would support abortion if their daughters became pregnant by black men. Holmes later said he would offer $100,000 cash to anyone who could show “a whole bunch of whites” have adopted black children in Alabama.
Today at the state house, white parents who adopted mixed race or minority children said it’s time for Holmes to ‘pay up.’
Beverly Owings is an adoptive mother of a 13-year-old bi-racial daughter. “I would like for him to ‘man up.’ He’s made the statement. He needs to put his money where is mouth is.”
The video is worth watching:
Andrew Breitbart once offered $100,000 to anyone who could provide video of Tea Partiers yelling racial epithets at black congressman at a famous incident in 2010. Nobody ever came forward — but if they had, Andrew would have “manned up” and paid. By contrast, Rep. Holmes is dodging reporters’ inquiries.
Next up: Mike Dickinson, who is hoping to run against Eric Cantor in Virginia. This is a video you simply have to watch. Make the time. If time is short, skip ahead to 2:22:
GRETA: You want to have a war on them [Tea Partiers], for God’s sakes. You want a war on them. You don’t want to hear what they have to say.
DICKINSON: I think that they need a war on them, because of the fact of how they portray themselves. They portray this image that’s totally not who they are. That’s totally not who they are.
GRETA: OK, that’s really bad, to portray yourself not as who you are, right?
GRETA: OK, terrible. OK, let’s go to this. Speaking of that, a letter to the Times-Dispatch you wrote January 29, 2013, and you claimed that you were the CEO of Mid-Atlantic Show Clubs, which is a group of strip clubs. Is that right?
DICKINSON: That’s, that’s correct.
GRETA: OK. That wasn’t true, was it?
DICKINSON: I worked for, I consulted for them.
GRETA: OK, it says CEO of Mid-Atlantic. Were you the CEO?
DICKINSON: I was the, I guess, consulting, operations director.
GRETA: So. That wasn’t quite true, was it?
DICKINSON: You got me there.
GRETA: It was wrong. It was a lie. A little bit of a lie. Right? Tiny one?
DICKINSON: [Laughs.] That’s true.
GRETA: Little bit of a lie?
Now, all this is kind of unfair, because these guys are both . . . well, I don’t want to be mean. Let’s just say they’re really, really dumb. All you have to do is listen to them speak to discern that.
But when Republican candidates or politicians make dumb statements (remember Todd Akin? Sharron Angle? Christine O’Donnell?) they become stand-ins for the whole party, and other Republican candidates and politicians must be asked whether they agree.
So I think it’s incumbent on Big Media to demand that Barack Obama be asked if he agrees with these two dumb Democrats. And the answer needs to go on the front page of every paper in the nation.
That’ll happen, right? Because Big Media is about the news. And fairness. Always with the fairness.
