Sockpuppet Friday—the “Now EVERYTHING is a Racist Term” Edition!

As usual, you are positively encouraged to engaged in sockpuppetry on this thread. The usual rules apply.

Please be sure to switch back to your regular handle when commenting on other threads. I have made that mistake myself.

And remember, the worst sin you can commit on this thread is not being funny.


And for this week’s Friday Frivolity, Fast Eddie Schultz provides us with the latest reduction to absurdity in the hyper-racializaton of every single issue. Now even the term “break” is racist, somehow. I kid you not:

On his show last night, Schultz said that [Senator Jim] Demint, whom Cain has mentioned as a potential running mate, repeated an “old southern racist term when talking about defeating President Obama during the health care debate.” Schultz’s example? He quoted Demint saying that “If we are able to stop Obama on this [health care law], it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.” For clarity, Schultz repeated the offending line, “It will break him.”

Dr. James Peterson, director of Africana studies at Lehigh University, explained that “break” is a racist verb, “a term that was used to destroy, mentally and physically, slaves.” Accordingly, the Demint line demonstrated “how dark some of these racial discourses can be in presidential politics.”

Right, remember in Rocky IV when the Russian said to Rocky, “I must break you”? Clearly that was racism. And that Red Hot Chili Peppers song, “Breaking the Girl?” Racism. And when Linkin Park sang that, “every word you say to me… takes me one step closer to the edge and I’m about to break”? Racism. That Jennifer Aniston movie, “The Break Up”? Might as well be called “Birth of a Nation.” And can you believe that in the 21st century we can have a weekly show with a name as clearly racist as “Breaking Bad?”

Joking aside, what these morons want to do is reinforce racism, to expect us never to forget for one second that there is a black man in the White House, or think for one second that you can treat him just like any white person in the same position. And as I said the other day it is almost empirically untrue that opposition to the health care reform legislation was racist. I mean after all, a black president (Obama) accomplished what a white Southern president (Clinton) couldn’t. That’s not exactly a controlled experiment, but it is strong evidence that the opposition to the bill was principled, not racist.

And gee, if Herman Cain becomes President, will they constantly accuse his opposition of being racists, too? Something tells me they won’t, even when there is actually better evidence of their racism than there was among Republicans.

Via BreitbartTV and Hugh Hewitt, we have this string of uhhhs from the most articulate president in history. See if you can make it through the whole thing:

The caption states:

Thanks to the Hugh Hewitt Show, we have 2:47 of “Uh, Um, Er” from Thursday’s presidential press conference in Washington DC. The audio you hear is taken from President Obama’s responses to two questions. There are no duplicates.

Uhhh er and uhhh um . . .

Shameful: Occupy Boston Protesters Harass, Spit on Member of Coast Guard

Many liberals to this day maintain that it is a myth that anti-war types spat on our soldiers during the Vietnam era.  So I guess this is mythological, too, eh?

The Coast Guard in Boston confirmed that a woman in uniform was harassed and spat upon by Occupy Boston protesters.

The woman was walking to the train and said protesters spit on her twice, called her foul names and even threw a water bottle at her.

Also if that wasn’t bad enough as PR goes, the same gaggle of idiots caused the cancelation of a food drive.   That is right, the socialists are preventing the poor from eating.

You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
