Elisabeth Hasselbeck = Flaming Idiot

I don't watch The View, but my lady friend does. And she cannot stand Elisabeth HasselBITCH, as she calls her. I can't say that I blame her. The View has always had a revolving door of blondes on the panel that have been...well, they have been very faithful to the stereotypes of those with lighter hair, and the intelligence level that goes along with it.

I submit, as Exhibit A, her latest brain-fart. During a recent "Hot Topic" segment, Whoopie Goldberg introduces a story about a study that says that there are a large number of older women who are recently coming out as lesbians. According to Mrs. Hasselbeck, this is because older women are tired of men, and are looking for something different. She actually said this out loud on live television-- that older lesbians are basically women who have been unable to make romantic connections with men, and the fact that so many older men are going for younger they opt for the lesbian lifestyle. Not that the woman has either poor taste in men, or bad judgment, or many other variables that men and women can carry with them for a lifetime. It's apparently the fault of men.

Look, far be it from me to insult someone's intelligence...okay, who am I kidding-- I do that often. This woman is touched in the noggin, clearly. I mean, who the hell would wake up one morning, after 40-50-60-70 years of heterosexual behavior and say "You know what? Let me try it the other way around!" No one does that, unless you are gay to begin with, and are hiding it from yourself or others. MEN AND WOMEN ARE EITHER BORN GAY, OR THEY ARE NOT BORN GAY. Unless you have a Bible so far up your tush that you will only allow yourself to think is gay, from womb to tomb. Period.

I'm a straight man. And there are times when I have had trouble meeting women. Not once, NOT ONCE, did I think, "Hmmmmm, well...these ladies don't like me...what if I bed up with guy? Wonder how that would be?" You know how it would be? Not for me. You know how else it would be? Not at all. Why? BECAUSE I'M STRAIGHT. God, or science, made me this way, and that's the way it is. The intellectually and emotionally stunted folks of our great nation seem to think that it's some switch that can be turned on or off-- that you CHOOSE the gay or the straight. To speak to this in terms that Mrs. Hasselbeck can's not like picking which pair of shoes to wear for the day.

Boy, leave it to issues like race or sexual orientation to bring out the stupid...

Shirley Sherrod: Now, What Have We Learned....?

Shirley Sherrod: Now, What Have We Learned....?

I gotta say, when it comes to idiotic race/racist/racism/racialism stories....when it rains, it POURS.

And we (hopefully) wrap up this round of America's Racial Retardation Tour with the plight of Mrs. Shirley Sherrod.  We all know the story by now, right?  Asshole Andrew Breitart, Conservative blogger and mental defective, wrote an out-of-context story based on a half-edited video of Mrs. Sherrod speaking at an event about issues and conflicts that she has herself had to confront about race. His purpose? According to him, to bring to light the hypocrisy of the NAACP. How'd that work out for you, Andrew? Not well, huh? And that's the fault of the "mainstream media", right? How about that fact that you used a poor example to justify a flawed thesis?

It has always been the NAACP's job to protect the rights of non-White folks that, at a certain time in our history, where being murdered and disenfrancised by a system that allowed those things to happen. As times, and laws, have changed over the years, we find that there are still some instances where their assistance is required; with education reform, for example. But when it comes to race relations, it seems as if they are slighted and mocked by predominately White conservatives that believe that racism either no longer exists, or only exists on the fringes...and is no longer a serious issue to contend with.

Well, unfortunately for these White conservatives, race is still an issue. Talk about the race card-- no one seems to play it as much as the members of Fox News. From Glenn Beck's "Obama has a deep-seated hatred of White poeple and the White culture", to their so-called coverage of the 2-4 guys that are the New Black Panther's all about how much fear they can fill into the hearts of the "disenfrancised" White folks of America. You know, because White folks have always had it very hard in America-- especially now. And with our new Black President, people like me can now have the heel of my boot on the neck of Whitey, so they can do my bidding. Now all we have to do is knock up all the White women, and kill the White men and "cracker" babies, and our mission will then be complete. N-word, please....

And to top this all off, Tom Vilsack and the other jackasses over at the Agricultural Department completely and totally jumped the gun over a non-issue that ONLY needed about 5-10 minutes of research to clear up! I can't bust Brietbart and Fox News' balls too much over this-- they are just doing the stupid shit that they always do. But Vilsack and the others really had their heads up their asses on this one. And why? According to Sherrod, because she was told that the story would be on Glenn Beck's show. So, to get this straight were afraid of Glenn Beck-- this is Glenn Beck we're talking about here-- it's Glenn FREAKING Beck. You were "afraid" that this non-story was going to be covered by him?! Of all people-- I mean, I even give Hannity and O'Reiley more credit...but GLENN BECK?! Mrs. Sherrod, I know this is below you, but I really wish that instead of pulling over to "text" your resignation, you told whoever was on the line to "Go to Hell." I personally would have just said "Fuck you," and hung up the phone. But that's just me-- I'm vulgar.

And now...a day later...after everyone realised what a bullshit story this was...NOW everyone is sorry. O'Reilly is (sort of) sorry. Breitbart is sorry...that the "mainstream media" took his story out of context (serioulsy, asshole?). Barry H. called Mrs. Sherrod on the phone to offer his appologies and regrets. Barry, I gotta tell need to get your little team over there into better shape than it's in right now. You have people working for you reacting to stupid shit that Beck and the other anti-intellectuals at Fox News say and do. Most of us who know better understand Fox for what it is. What you have to do is better educated to zombie-fied, uneducated, unfortunate souls that actually believe that Fox delivers intelligent and thoughtful news. They are a media and entertainment channel-- we all know that! And the more you and the others continue to react to their garbage, the more powerful and "legitimate" they become! So STOP IT!!!!!

Breitbart is now playing victim, and claims that he was given this video by an unnamed source, and it says all these things, and blah-blah-blah. What kind of hack runs a story like this, with NO further research? Or forethought, for that matter. If you want to discredit the NAACP, you're going to have to employ more intelligent tactics than the basic Sourthern Strategy race-baiting that conservatives have used for well over 5 decades. And you have to also understand the fact that White people are going to be criticized...whether you (or any other overly-sensitive White person) want to accept that or not. The problem is that race-centric White folks are not used to being criticized, or debated about their behavior in the past, or in the present. He and other teabaggers have taken a situation that they could have turned to their political advantage...and turned into RAHOWA. And they did that because that's all they know. They know how great they are, and how great America is because of them....and how rotten Black and Brown and Yellow and Red folks are, and how much they are ruining America.

"I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK!!!" idiots and birthers and all other assorted human waste have corrupted the Tea Party Movement, possibly irreperably. They allowed all that moronic rhetoric to get out of control to the point where it has defined them. It was too little, too late for them to try to change their ways, or scoff at those who call them racists...because they didn't deal with this problem FROM THE BEGINNING. And that's your fault, people. It's the same reason why some White folks have to bend over backwards to prove that they are not racists....because of unchecked past behavior, a pattern emerged, and stereotypes and expectations have set in. And now you want to blame everyone that calls you on it.

You people, ALL of you people, need to get over this racial shit. You need to start acting like mature adults, and learn to have rational and intelligent conversations about this stuff. And you need to take personal responsibility for who you are, and what you do...and what you are going to do to get over this crap. Conservatives have to learn that playing the race card in politics is a dangerous and stupid game. And Liberals have to stop screaming "racism!" every ten seconds. But none of you will. And we'll be back at square one soon enough.

So be it.

Glenn Beck is Going Blind? Wow...The Trifecta Is Complete

I am not going to make a blind joke about Glenn Beck's condition. As idiotic as I think this man can be (and often times is), won't mock him for this; it's not right. But it did make me think of an image that I think personifies the current state of the Republican Party. Seeing as how Beck is possibly going blind...and Rush Limbaugh is deaf...and Sarah Palin can's kind of funny to see the irony of the iconic image of three monkeys in line together, covering their respective orifice (or ocular thingies).

That's all.

The Brown Berets Want America Back!

Delicious, tasty, sweet irony! Even if this is drop-dead serious, it's still pretty funny...

A group calling themselves The Brown Berets is making waves over the internets with a video of two members of their community showing up at an anti-immigration rally with a megaphone and some choice words for the predominately White protesters on the scene, such as "You're White! This is Mexican land! Go back to Germany! Go back to Europe!"

Pretty hilarious, if you ask me. I mean sure, racism is racism no matter who is spewing it. But this is the obvious and direct result of the surge of anti-Mexican/anti-immigrant rhetoric that's been regurgitated from the Right for well over a year now. You can even hear some woman in the video telling the protester to go wash someone's dishes-- sure, that's funny...but it's not doing much to help the debate. There is only so much that people will allow themselves to be pushed around before they end up pushing back. Hence, you've got "Chicano Militantism":

Most Americans don’t understand why anybody would want to protest in what they call the “greatest country in the world”. "After all", they say, "don’t we all enjoy so many rights and benefits in this country that no other country in the world has? Why can’t people just stop complaining and just be happy? Why can’t they just speak English and be American?" Many Chicanos feel this type of thinking is an arrogant ethnocentric ideology rooted in a superiority complex inherent in American thought. Why is it right that when a white person raises his/her voice in defiance he/she is considered a hero or rights advocate, but when Chicanos raise their voice they are considered troublemakers and whiners? This a double standard that must be addressed.

Right or wrong, this is what happens as a result of White American racism going unchecked. The Teabaggers have learned this the hard way over the last week or so, as they have begun to work feverishly to debunk claims of racism that the NAACP have recently sought to condemn...this is after well over a year of ignoring or making excuses for racism in their ranks. You know when they shove a boot up Mark Williams' stupid ass...they are willing to make some changes.

Unfortunately, Whites who are innocent of racist idiocy get clumped together with those of less mental capacity and emotional intelligence. And that's a shame, it really is. And it's too bad that there are White folks out there that get threatened by groups like The Brown Berets or The New Black Panther Party, or other so-called minority militant groups. But after all, that's the intimidate certain Whites into "behaving themselves."

I would like nothing more than all people with a racial stick of their asses to just go someplace else. Go someplace where you would feel comfortable. It's a big world out there-- you don't have to stay here. Just leave the rest of us alone so that we can deal with the real problems.

BP Photoshops Their Command Center: The Dumb Get Dumbererer

Courtesy of AMERICAblog and The Washington Post, check out the latest is numb-skullery coming from our environmentally responsible friends over at BP.

It seems as if BP has been altering some photography on its website, using some of the sloppiest Photoshop skills I have ever seen. This was obviously done either by an intern or some staffer that happened to have Photoshop on their machine. Speaking as someone who knows my way around Adobe products, this job is nowhere near a professional job. And in the grand scheme of Photoshop image manipulation, it would have been very easy to make a convincing version. Why didn't they just hire a professional to do this work? Being cheap is what got BP into this mess in the first place! They could have paid someone at least $2000 bucks (or less) to touch up these images properly!

Don't get me wrong, I'm not condoning these crooked mess or the corrupt jackasses who are constantly lying. It's just funny to see incompetence come in ways like this. Just goes to show you that no matter how smart or crafty or slick some people say they are...there's always some numb-nuts around to muck it all up.

Sarah Palin and Teabaggers United in Racial Retardation

I wrote a little article yesterday about America's on-going racial stupidity and, as always, the hits just keep on comin'!

As some of you may know, the NAACP recently authored a resolution condemning racism within the Tea Party movement. Not at all far-fetched, considering some of the rhetoric and imagery present at many of the rallies and other events. I mean after all, if Obama can be linked to the New Black Panther Party because an insignificantly small number of them appeared at a couple of polling places for security purposes (scaring all hell out of the White folks that saw them...Ooooooo), then why shouldn't the teabaggers-- with their stupid signs-- be considered frothing, back-woods, inbred racists? But trying to connect the dots with logic and intellect is not the 'baggers style. And, predictably, they are now pissed at the allegations.

Enter Sarah Palin to the rescue! She came out swinging yesterday with a condemnation of the NAACP condemnation:

“I am saddened by the NAACP’s claim that patriotic Americans who stand up for the United States of America’s constitutional rights are somehow ‘racists,’” Palin wrote in a Facebook post. “The charge that tea party Americans judge people by the color of their skin is false, appalling and is a regressive and diversionary tactic to change the subject at hand.”

TeeHeeHee! I'm sorry, I tend to laugh at almost everything that comes out of this vapid bimbo's mouth. And I didn't even get to the part where she cites Ronald Reagan, of all people-- her go-to when she wants to try to act like she's making a legitimate point. Sorry, doesn't work. If I thought for a moment that she, or anyone else in the 'bagger nation, knew what they hell they were talking about, I might just want to take them seriously. But half-Governor Palin, as always, is an idiot.

And speaking of idiotic bimbos, how about guano-for-brains Mark Williams' saying that it is the NAACP that is actually racist! I am not making that up-- he actually said this, in public, and it's on tape.

"Racists have their own movement. It's called the NAACP. A bunch of old fossils looking to make a buck off skin color."--Mark Williams

This is the same guy, mind you, that said that Muslims worship a "monkey God". I guess that's not racist, right? He also called Obama a "half-white racist president". Yeah, race is never on Williams' mind, is it? And I guess calling Obama an "Indonesian Muslim  turned welfare thug and a racist in chief" has absolutely NOTHING to do with race. Right?

You know what the funniest thing about all of this stuff is? These White folks really have no idea what it means to be a racist or a race-baiter. White folks like this only understand racism in terms of using the word "nigger". They only think of racism as the things that they see in black and white footage from the civil rights movement. They feel that to call them racists is, in and of itself, racist. I think that White people being called "racists" is to them the closest thing to being called a "nigger".

This country has a racist past-- no one can deny that. This country's racism was built and propagated by Whites-- no one can deny that. Any racism that exists from Blacks, or Hispanics, or Asians or any other non-white group towards Whites themselves is a direct result of White racism. Cause and effect. Certain Whites always want to claim all that is good about themselves and America, but when it comes to their own flaws...they cry foul. Groups like the NAACP only exist because of out-of-control White racism that resulted in countless murders of people who's only crime was being Black in America. That is a fact. One only needs to open up any legitimate history book to see that.

It's rather unfortunate that certain Whites feel that they need to revise history for the uneducated, rather than address historical facts and help to move this country forward from backwards, lazy thinking. None of these brain-dead ideologues like Palin, Williams, Tancredo, Beck, Limbaugh, Malkin, or any of the other teabagger shit-heads want to put the time or energy into using the braincells that God/science gave them. They are anti-intellectual elitists that thrive on mass ignorance. They rely on people being "too busy" or "uninterested" in research or education to fact-check and verify moronic notions.

Anybody can say anything in today's media climate. I can easily say "Teabaggers are massively undereducated, dimwitted bigots." I can easily say "Sarah Palin is a fucking moron." I can easily say "Rush Limbaugh is a fat, drug-addicted douchebag." I can say "Mark Williams is an uneducated, inbred pig-fucker." See how easy it was to say those things? Who is going to hold my feet to the fire for that? Who is going to deny those things? And if you disagree, prove that I'm wrong! Where is Sarah Palin's high school diploma? Where is Rush Limaugh's piss test? Show me Mark William's I.Q. score! Show me a teabagger rally that has absolutely no racist signs or imagery! PROVE TO ME, and everyone else, that these people are NOT retarded!

I bet you that you cannot.

SPECIAL NOTE TO 'BAGGERS: You're pissed now, aren't you? If you made it to the end of this post, I know that you must be chomping at the bit like Mel Gibson on the phone with Oksana Grigorveia. I mean, for someone like me to write something like this, I must be a real piece of shit, right? An Obama ass-kisser, an NAACP sympathizer, a racist asshole, right? You make me laugh, 'baggers. I've heard it all before. And I've said it dozens of times, and I will continue to say it: You people have done absolutely nothing to prove to anyone that you are worthy of any serious consideration. You don't know what it means to be Americans. Your hyper-fetishized vision of what you think this country is or should be is beyond anything any rational, educated, sane American could imagine. You have no cohesive vision to run this country. You have no sensible policy ideas or solutions. You are loud, ignorant, obnoxious, unbalanced, uneducated, incoherent, inarticulate mental defectives. All of you.

And if you are a 'bagger, and you are none of these have a lot of work to do to get those other idiots out of the way.

Black and Angry Vs. White and Stupid: No One Wins

So, what do we have going on this week in the never-ending game of America's Got Racist Race-Baiting Racialized Stupidity?  We have the NAACP attacking the Tea Party over charges of racism. We have Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh publicly imploding over the great Black Threat. Then there's Mel Gibson and his "wetbacks" and "gang of niggers." Oh, and we have the New Black Panther party who, according to Fox News, intimidated people at the polls into voting for the Black Muslim Socialist President Obama. There's so much racial retardation going on, I just don't know where to start!

Well, I guess I can start with this New Black Panther thing that's been going around. So, apparently, Glenn Beck is wetting his panties over something that Malik Shabazz said about killing white people, and their cracker babies. Horrifying, isn't it? There is a Black man calling for White deaths. I'm sure all of you innocent White folks out there are as scared as Beck is, aren't you? It's horrible, isn't hypothetically have your life  threatened by this one guy. I'm sorry to be so sarcastic (no, I'm not), but I really don't see what the threat is here. When I think about it, a silly, loud mouth Black kid talking about killing White babies, versus a history of Whites actually killing Black babies, and men, and women...well, I can understand why Whites are scared to death. But it's still silly. Seriously, how many Black Panthers are responsible for the deaths of White people? How many Whites have the Black Panthers killed? Or beat up? How many? Compare that to the number of Blacks that the KKK or NeoNazi Skinheads or other White Supremacy groups have killed. How scared are you now? Probably more so, huh? I mean, now that we have a Black President, White killings may actually be legalized. I wonder when I'll get my government-issued license? My trigger finger is ITCHING!!! And my hangin' rope is lonely!

Should this guy, or any other guy (or gal) be talking about killing people? Of course not. But I can't and won't feel sorry for White folks that are getting themselves all worked up over nothing. Assholes like Shabazz say stupid things all the time. Again, how many White folks over the years have said (and DONE) stupid things in the name of their racial supremacy? And after all of that-- after YEARS of this, I'm not the least be concerned, or afraid, of rogue White folks and their irrational, emotionally unbalanced hate and fears. We got over it, you should too. I know that there are plenty of White folks out there that hear the shit that Shabazz says, and thinks that every single Black person in the country listens to, and believes it. That, in and of itself, could be construde as racist. But I would rather just consider it lazy thinking. Or stupidity. But that's just me.

And speaking of stupidity, we have the Teabaggers. Aside from their ass-backward policies and no-sense government solutions, there are allegations that the group is nothing more than a pack of racists under the guise of a political movement. In a recent push towards that line of thinking, the NAACP approved a resolution to condemn the 'baggers for their intolerance and racism. But ask a 'bagger, any one of 'em, and they'll tell you that they're in no way, shape, or form racists. I mean, aside from the posters at their rallies and the rhetoric from their representatives....they are not racists! See, what I don't understand is that if we are to go by the "logic" of someone like Glenn Beck, the mere fact that at LEAST one person has shown up at a teabagger rally with a racist sign...that should condemn the entire group as being racist. Right? I mean, if we can link Obama to the New Black Panther Party, CLEARLY we can link Glenn Beck and the whole of teabaggers to The Klan. Oh, and by the way...the term "teabaggers" is not the new "nigger." I swear, I have never heard so much self-pity and whining. "Oh, boo-hoo-hoo! I want my country back! And stop making fun of our ass-backward idiocy! Leave us alone, and listen to us! We're right and you're wrong! I saw two Black people at our rallies, so we're not racists!" Please. I haven't heard a teabagger, or any of the morons that speak for them, say one goddamn thing worthy of good braincells.

And speaking vapid, fat idiots...well, I wasn't. But I am now! Our good friend Rush Limbaugh is angry. He's angry that Blacks are, once again, complaining about how awful it is to live in America. After all, Blacks have everything. They have all the money, all the power...from Oprah to Obama, Black wealth reins supreme in America. Even that dead "cracker" George Steinbrenner (isn't that Jewish?) has made Blacks rich beyond their wildest dreams. It's been said that Rush is not really a racist. They say that he is just saying this stuff because it appeals to his demographic. I really don't care if he, or anyone else for that matter, is a racist or not. I've never found the man to be all that bright. Crafty, sure. A "comedian", yes. Smart? Bright? Clever? Nah. I just don't see it. He's an ideological coward that bitches alone in front of a golden dick-like microphone every day. And without that mic, he's nothing but an ignorant shut-in talking to himself. I mean, look-- he probably is a racist, but so what? Who is he really reaching out to? He's one of the people that just preaches to his choir-- he's not "converting" anyone, or making anyone "see the light". He speaks to 1/8th of America's population. That's it! And that's including the dim-witted politicians that gobble on his nob whenever any of them speak out against just how stupid he is. Which means that politicians are akin to whores, scrapping after ANY VOTE that they can get. But we all knew that, didn't we?

There was one point in my life when I thought my Dad was a racist. I heard him say things as a youngster that made me cringe, quite frankly. And he died without me telling him that now, as an adult, I truly understand where he was coming from. He didn't hate White people. But he did have a hard time trusting them. See, he dealt with racism in a way that me and my brother, and my daughter, have never and will never have to deal with. He had White men calling him a nigger to his face. He had White men calling him out to fight, or wanting to kill him, because he told them to kiss his Black ass. Now, I have never been called a "nigger" to my face by a White man, and I can't imagine that happening. If it happened in my youth, that White person would be picking up his teeth with broken fingers. As an adult, I'd probably laugh in their face and call them a fucking moron.

I don't hate or distrust White folks at all. I have White folks in my life that I love very much-- they've been in my home, been around my daughter (who is half white)...I havne;t a racist bone in my body when it comes to White folks, or Asians, or Hispanics, or anyone else. It's difficult for me to condemn an entire race of people because of a few stray shit-heads out there. But unfortunately, there are mental defectives and emotionally retarded folks out there that lack the good sense that God, or science, gave them.

Racism in America will be around for a very long time, ladies and gentlemen. Things are getting better, for sure...but to assume that hundreds of years of racial conditioning will disappear overnight is foolish, silly, naive, and just plain wrong. Some people want to ignore it, others want to amplify it, and more still want to deny it. And no one has the upper hand in the discussion. Are Blacks angry? Yeah, some of us are. Some of us aren't. Are Blacks racist? Not all of us, but yes. Are Whites racist? Not all of them, but yes. Whites are responsible for the racial climate in America. They've propagated it, as well as condemned it. Are Whites stupid? Just the racist ones. Anyone that has their heads so deeply wedged between their ass-cheeks that they think they are racially superior than others is...well, stupid.

Race-centric Blacks and Whites will bitch and moan for many, many years to come. Each side will feel slighted, and ignored, and stepped on by the other. And it's a shame, really. Both sides of this stupid argument are completely unaware that they are more alike than they think they are. People who are generally that ignorant are too blind to see that. So for the rest of us, we have to keep that in mind. Whether they're calling for cracker deaths, or condemning Black-negro socialist hell-bent on ruining America...they know not what they are saying. They don't understand themselves, or other people. If they did, they would think before they spoke. Or, they would just think, period.

That's all.

Mel Gibson: THE END

Boy, oh boy. I just heard the second audio tape released by RadarOnline of the Mel Gibson psycho rant. It was eight solid minutes of him screaming and yelling at the top of his lungs, taking breaks to pant like a wild dog in between. I can't say that I hate the man, because I don't (I don't know him personally). I like his movies a lot, and he always seemed like an affable guy...but now it's clear that this is a man that needs a shit-ton of help.

Listening to this tape you get the impression that this man is not well. He has to be either drunk, stoned, or both-- no sane person says the things that he says, or does the things that he has done. He hit this woman (Oksana Grigorieva), and there is no excuse for that-- any man that hits a woman is a piece of shit, period. And the fact that he apparently hit this woman WHILE she was holding their child...he should have his stupid ass locked up for that shit alone. But man, to hear this guy rant and rage like a's almost sad to see a man that had so much lose it ALL because he left his issues unchecked.

The sad thing is that he is aware of it. At one point, he admits to not only not  having any friends left, but he admits that his career is over. And this is all BEFORE these tapes came out. It's a self-imposed public flogging. And that is sad. Granted, he is not innocent by any stretch of the imagination. But it's still pitiful.

There are quite a few people out there that are supporting Gibson, and making excuses for his behavior, and at the same time trashing Oksana and other women in his life. That, to me, is fucking retarded. Sorry, but it is. Look, this guy does need help, that's a given...but HE HIT A WOMAN-- HE HIT HER, WHILE SHE WAS HOLDING THEIR BABY. What excuse can you POSSIBLY make for that?! What if this was your neighbor, or some stranger, that was doing the exact same thing to your sister, or mother, or friend? Would you have pity for the man in that situation?  You're kissing Gibson's ass just because he made a few enjoyable movies? I call bullshit on that. There are also people that criticize Oksana for recording Gibson. That is also stupid. How else is she going to prove in a court of law that this idiot is a threat to her life? He even talks about killing her on this new tape-- defend THAT. "Oh," a sympathetic moron might say, "He was angry-- people say a lot of things when they're angry!" You know who else was angry? Scott Peterson, Joran Vander Sloot, Drew Peterson, etc. Ask their wives/victims if Oksana was in the right for recording this raging fuck-wad. Oh yeah, you can't. Unless you've also hit a woman (or women), you would not support this asshole.

I really don't know how these tapes got leaked, and I really don't care. I think anyone that is violent to women needs to be exposed-- famous or not. They register sex, why not wife-beaters and rapists (I'm not saying this this douche is a rapist, btw). So-called men like this should be called out. They are worthless, spineless pieces of shit. They are man enough to push women around, be man enough to have your idiocy be heard and known among the masses. We'll see how manly you are then...

The White Fear is Coming For YOU!!!!!!!

Ah, insecure, paranoid, rich white men...will you say anything intelligent or honest to keep your work-class and poor masses entertained (or shitting in their pants, or loading their guns).

From Mexican immigrants to Obama's racism, these silly people just keep saying the dumbest things you could possibly imagine! Not shocking, or surprising...just stupid. I think most people kind of expected this wave of ignorance to crash on us at some point in time or another. And what better time that the election of the first Black president for the White Right to lash out...passive-aggressively, mind you...with their frustrations and anger and jealousy and fears.

Let's take race-baiter and conspiracy theorist Glenn Beck for example. His latest slice of hilarity comes in the form of accusations that Barrack Obama is liked to the New Black Panther party. YAWN-- what? There's a "New" Black Panther party? And Obama's involved, huh? This is horrible. I guess Beck's claims of Obama's racism are correct, huh-- I guess he really does have a deep-seated hatred for White people and the White culture. You know who says that a lot? Paranoid White people. Just like the arguments I hear from Black men about how the "White Man" is keeping them he's not. It's stupid, from all sides. But Beck has a way of making dumb shit sound even dumber. Smugness and ignorance don't mix very well (just ask Sarah Palin-- or not, 'cause she probably won't know what you're talking about).

Of course, we can't bring up stupid racial brain-fuckery without talking about that fat, ignorant nimrod Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh has said time and time again that Obama is the perfect gateway for the pro-brown/anti-White America-haters. Up with Mexicans, up with Blacks, down with Whitey! Yeah, that's what we all think, you know.We long for the day when we can raise our children in a White-free world. The only people that think this way-- that think that Whites are in jeopardy-- are Whites like these two shit-heads.

If you think like Beck and Limbaugh, you think that the world has changed for the absolute worst. And that worst has everything to do with the democratic election of the first Black president. See, with a Black president, all of the greatest fears-- the greatest "White fears"-- are coming to fruition. It's the third or fourth of the Horsemen of the Apocalypse. It's one thing to live in a world that may be multi-ethnic, but you don't have it in your face...and then to live in one where it IS in your face. It's the inescapable truth of a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural country...and the "horrors" that come with them.

Let's just say, for shits and giggles, that Obama IS a racist. So what? Whites NEVER want their feet held to the fire for their racist views-- particularly the ones that bitch about race the most. Racist Whites will do and say anything to mask their views, or allowing others to define what their views are. They refuse to accept the perception of their feelings and their words and/or actions. They make excuses, use talking points, talk of "the race card" ANYTHING to shift the focus of attention from the basic facts. So, if Obama is a racist...why would it bother certain White folks so much? Is this a simple case of a fear that chickens will be coming home...something about them roosting...

When it comes to race relations in America, there are two types of people; those who care, and those who do not. Those of us who do NOT care can live our lives without the need of judging people by something so insignificant, insecure, and immature as someone's race or ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Then, you've got the "others". Those Americans that enjoy the smell of their own farts, feast on their own shit, and swallow their own bile for nurishment. These are the people that find fault in any and everyone that does not think, look, or act as they do. They develop false facts, pseudo-science and religious misinterpretation to rationalize their views. They need to, after all...when you have feelings and emotions that are so skewed and out-of-line with normalcy, there needs to be another reason for it, other than the fact that you're a "racist" or a "homophobe" or a "xenophobe". And that is where the Becks and the Limbaughs, and the Tancredos, and the Palins come in...they HAVE all the bullshit answers that uneducated, hateful people need to feel know, so they can avoid all that "White Guilt" they've heard so much about!

Or Beck,  Limbaugh and the others could just be doing it for the money. Hey, there are a lot of people that eat up bullshit like this (cough-cough-teabaggers). And nothing says ratings like a "racist claptrap"...

Teabaggers on Parade!

Teabaggers on Parade! | Photo 02

I don't know. I just don't know. I have tried to lay off writing about the Tea Party Movement for a while, mostly because I've found myself making fun of them way too much. To be honest, I've felt bad about that. I mean after all, these people are in...well, they're in some kind of pain and are trying to express themselves in the face of mass ridicule. I just thought that maybe, just maybe, they needed to flush the toilet of the lunatics and morons that had the loudest voices in the party, so that they could regroup, collect themselves, solidify their message, refine their voice, and reintroduce themselves with a clear and meaningful purpose. And that has just not happened.

Prime example of the teabagger imbecile-in-carnate...the one and only Sharon Angle. For those who don't know, Mrs. Angle is competing for Harry Reid's Senate seat in Nevada. This woman has said a lot of bat-shit crazy things, but her recent comments regarding incest and rape are just...well...I mean, what can you really say about this woman that isn't being said by so many already? If you don't know, she has (on two separate occasions) made the case that there were other ways to deal with impregnation as a result of rape, even by a relative, that do not require abortion as an option; making lemonade out of lemons is how she described it:

My own personal feelings and that is always what I express, my personal feeling is that we need to err on the side of life. There is a plan and a purpose, a value to every life no matter what it's location, age, gender or disability....I think that two wrongs don't make a right. And I have been in the situation of counseling young girls, not 13 but 15, who have had very at risk, difficult pregnancies. And my counsel was to look for some alternatives, which they did. And they found that they had made what was really a lemon situation into lemonade.
Wow. So, if you get's God's will. It's how it was written-- you were put on this earth to birth a child out of rape through incest, or by a stranger. I always wonder what would happen if people like this had to personally confront these issues. I wonder how righteous they would be then.

How about her comment about using the Second Amendment to support "Harry Reid problems"?

I feel that the Second Amendment is the right to keep and bear arms for our citizenry. This not for someone who's in the military. This not for law enforcement. This is for us. And in fact when you read that Constitution and the founding fathers, they intended this to stop tyranny. This is for us when our government becomes tyrannical...And you know, I'm hoping that we're not getting to Second Amendment remedies. I hope the vote will be the cure for the Harry Reid problems.
I love the veiled,  passive-aggressive tone that these comments, and others like it, really work at hinting to the lesser among us to act on their impulses...while not coming right out and saying what they mean to abdicate themsleves of any accountability. And this is a common message that these asshole 'baggers like to throw around-- always with the threats, to themselves and to others. This is what we continue to see from these people-- irrational arguments, no-sense solutions, and overt threats of violence...and we are supposed to take these people seriously?

But it's not just the dead-brained logic of Sharron Angle. How about Tom Tancredo recently coming out and saying that Barrack Obama is the greatest threat to America:

I believe this with all my heart -- that the greatest threat to the United States today, the greatest threat to our liberty, the greatest threat to the Constitution of the United States, the greatest threat to our way of life, everything we believe in, the greatest threat to the country that was put together by the Founding Fathers, is the guy that is in the White House today.
Really? Barrack Obama is the greatest threat to America-- which America do you mean? The real one, or the one that you and your ilk believe was "stolen" from you? You know, the fake, Bizzarro-World one. The one that mental defectives like you are constantly pining for. The fetishized one that never really existed. It's like this Rush Limbaugh idiocy about how the current administration doesn't really like America.  It's so easy to just say stupid shit like this-- to make these wild hyperbolic statements that really have no logic backing it up. And the audience for comments like this will never take the time to research these people to make sure they are getting the correct information. People like Limbaugh, Bachmann, Malkin, Beck, Hanity, Tancredo, Palin...they need an uneducated and undereducated audience to sell their goods.

And speaking of selling goods to an audience, we have a young lady named Krista Branch, with the song that is being dubbed as the Tea Party theme, called "I Am America."

Pay no attention to the people in the street
Crying out for accountability
Make a joke of what we believe
Say we don't matter 'cause you disagree

Pretend you're kings, sit on your throne
Look down your nose at the peasants below...

I've got some news, we're taking names
We're waiting now for the judgment day

Not a horrible song-- not my style, but it's not all that bad. And she's cute enough-- gotta like that. But yeah, I'm just not buying the "boo-hoo-hoo, they laugh at us" garbage that many of these 'baggers whine about. 'baggers get laughed at because they make no sense. And when they have the opportunity to explain themselves, they've got nothing to say. Hell, Lindsey Graham has even said it himself:

“Everything I’m doing now in terms of talking about climate, talking about immigration, talking about Gitmo is completely opposite of where the Tea Party movement’s at,” Graham said as Cato drove him to the city of Greenwood, where he was to give a commencement address at Lander University later that morning. On four occasions, Graham met with Tea Party groups. The first, in his Senate office, was “very, very contentious,” he recalled. During a later meeting, in Charleston, Graham said he challenged them: “ ‘What do you want to do? You take back your country — and do what with it?’ . . . Everybody went from being kind of hostile to just dead silent.”

That's exactly right. They have nothing to say. They're just pissed because they stupidly feel that the country NOW is being taken away from them. Meanwhile, Bush and Cheney ran this country into the ground-- TRULY and FACTUALLY caused damn-near all of the damage that we are dealing with today...and NONE of these 'baggers where anywhere to be found.

And so it goes, on and on. These people will continue to stomp their feet and be pissed off about losing something they never really had. You know what, assholes? You had your chance. You had every opportunity in the world to be heard, and to do the work necessary for people in the REAL WORLD to take you seriously. Now, you people are nothing more than caricatures. All you have is bitching, complaining, anger, bile, and an uneducated perspective of American history. You are bringing nothing useful to the table, including yourselves.

I know some of you will be pissed about what I've written here, and will try to write some inarticulate, belligerent screeds about what a pinko-commie, Obama-loving asshole I am. So be it. To be defined by vacuous, anti-intellectual zombies is...well, painless. And kinda funny!

Peace, love, and empathy to you all...

Makerbot: The $1000 3D Printer

This is the kind of thing I look at now and think to myself, "where the F**K was this when I was a kid?!" Introducing the Brooklyn-based MakerBot Industries, creator of...the Makerbot 3D printer. Basically, you get yourself a 3D model from the internet, or of your own creation, and feed it into the Makerbot software...and this thing will "print out", or build it!

This thing is pretty cool-- and the fact that it is open source makes it an exciting prospect for things to come.

New iPod Touch, with Camera, coming in September?

This is actually an old-ish story, but it's been popping up again recently. Turns out that the next version of the iPod Touch will feature a camera (5megapixel still and 720p HD video), and the gyroscope introduced in the iPhone 4. Supposedly, there will also be access to the FaceTime app, enabling video chat from the iPod as well.

I had been wondering when Apple was going to put a camera on the iPod-- looks like the wait may soon be over. I also like the idea of having some of the feature available on the iPhone, without having to buy an iPhone. One of the reasons I don't have an iPhone yet is because I use Verizon, and I am not switching to AT&T's sucky service. And really, with Wi-Fi becoming more and more common in major cities, is it really necessary to have this 3G or 4G crap?

Mel Gibson

Mel Gibson | Photo 03

First the corrupt Jews, then "sugar tits" gang rape by "niggers."

I grew up watching Mel Gibson movies. The Lethal Weapon and Mad Max movies appealed to the "guy" in me. Action, suspense, sex, know, guy shit. Fun stuff! And I'd see him in interviews and stuff and he always looked like a funny, fun-loving guy with a great sense of humor that people genuinely seemed to love.

Then, there came the story of his DUI stop, and his belligerent and disrespectful rantings at the cops who stopped and arrested him. We've all heard the story about his slanderous remarks about Jews, his ignorant "I pay your salaries" comments to the officers, and his misogynistic "sugar tits" comment to one of the female officers. I don't know about you, but that was a little surprising to me. This coming from the guy who made "Passion of the Christ", the true testament to his faith-- financed with his own money, even. But he blamed the bottle, went to therapy, and worked on reviving his career. And he wasn't really succeeding at that--  his last film, Edge of Darkness, came and went without any fan-fare whatsoever.

And now...we find out that there has been a lot of trouble with his current girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, and the mother of his new child. There have been stories that she claims that he was abusive-- he had apparently punched her in the face, breaking her tooth (or teeth, not sure). She filed a restraining order against him, for her own safety. And then, the phone calls...which she recorded for proof that he was a crazy, raging nut-case.

Apparently, she captured one of his rants on an audio tape. And what did he allegedly say:
"You're an embarrassment to me. You look like a f***ing pig in heat, and if you get raped by a pack of n***ers, it will be your fault."
"How dare you act like such a bitch when I have been so f**king nice."
"I am going to come and burn the f**king house down... but you will blow me first."

I'll get to the "niggers" and rape comments in a moment-- what baffles me is the blow job that she is supposed to give him before he burns the house down. Now look, we've all been angry and have had our share of fits, and said some stupid and even crazy things. I don't get the nob-job/arson thing. Maybe this statement, more than the others, proves that he truly is insane.

I can only imagine what Danny Glover might be thinking upon hearing about this. I mean look-- I'm not surprised at the racism and the misogyny, but to say these things to the mother of your child...I am speechless. I think a lot of people will just say things like "Mel Gibson needs help", or "He just needs anger management". But he's already had these things after his first public incident. I don't think there's any amount of "help" that will do anything for Mel Gibson. His career was in trouble before...and now, I believe it's over.

I have been angry with people in the past-- friends, girlfriends, ex-girlfriends, strangers on the street, etc. But when you say to someone-- to someone you've been intimate with, and have a child with, that you wouldn't blame a gang of "nigger" for raping them...not only is that beyond's just fucking disgusting. Now, this alleged tape is supposedly under lock-and-key, and has not been released...yet. This tape will get leaked. And we will all hear it. We have our opinions at this point, but what will we think when we hear these words come out of his mouth? What will we think when people take the Braveheart speech and over-dub this rant over it, and put it up on YouTube? That may honestly be the only work that this man will get for a very long time, if at all.

Oh well. Celebrities acting like idiots is nothing new. But this...well, I guess I'll always have Road Warrior...and Signs-- I liked that movie too. And the first two Lethal Weapons. Never saw Passion of the Christ or Braveheart. And don't want to. To support this prick is not in anyone's best interest.

UPDATE: Here's the audio.
