Ugly is as ugly does

How low can we go?

The October newsletter by the Chaffey Community Republican Women, Federated says if Obama is elected his image will appear on food stamps — instead of dollar bills like other presidents. The statement is followed by an illustration of “Obama Bucks” — a phony $10 bill featuring Obama’s face on a donkey’s body, labeled “United States Food Stamps.”

And this is the image:

What’s worse than a picture of a smiling Barak Obama surrounded by fried chicken, watermelon and kool-aid?

How ’bout calling for Obama to be waterboarded?

The Sacramento Bee on Wednesday posted an image it said was captured from the Sacramento County GOP Web site that showed Obama in a turban next to Osama bin Laden.

It said: “The difference between Osama and Obama is just a little B.S.” The site also encouraged members to “Waterboard Barack Obama,” a reference to a torture technique.
See id.

Here is a link to, and a snip from, the Sacramento Bee piece:

Sacramento County Republican leaders Tuesday took down offensive material on their official party Web site that sought to link Sen. Barack Obama to Osama bin Laden and encouraged people to “Waterboard Barack Obama” – material that offended even state GOP leaders.

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has pushed the party to try to broaden its appeal, took issue with the site. “In the governor’s view, it’s completely and totally inappropriate,” said Julie Soderlund, a Schwarzenegger spokeswoman.

Good on ya, Schwarzenegger. You gotta call it on that one.

And this is the image.

Obama. Negro Smiling Caricature. Food stamps. Fried chicken. Watermelon. Terrorist. Should be tortured.

The man, the legend. The guy who started it all back in the Year of Our Lord Beer, 2000, with a couple of pages worth of idiotic ranting hardcoded on some random porn site that would host anything you uploaded, a book called HTML for Dummies (which was completely appropriate), a bad attitude (which hasn’t much changed), and a Dell desktop running Win95 with 64 mgs of ram and a six gig hard drive. Those were the days. Then he went to law school. Go figure. Flagstaff, Arizona, USA

  1. Don’t kid yourself. You’re not really surprised. Sickened, perhaps, but not surprised.

    I know I’m not.

    There have been plenty of times during this election where I have read transcripts of conversations with voters, and watched video clips, and wondered how in this age of modern marvels and almost limitless access to knowledge any adult human being in a developed nation could be capable of such stupidity.

    I don’t think it’s something we’re capable of understanding, to tell the truth. How do you understand bigotry and racism? How can you trick your mind into seeing only stereotypes, into believing fables and long discredited myths?

    I’m not sure it’s possible.

  2. Yep. The socialization of Merica wasn’t to be easy. Point now, how about thinging about what’s going to shake out once he is assasinated.

    Jeebus knew it was coming.

  3. And the Obama bucks were put out by a frickin WOMENS group??

    “It was strictly an attempt to point out the outrageousness of his statement. I really don’t want to go into it any further,” Fedele said in a telephone interview Tuesday. “I absolutely apologize to anyone who was offended. That clearly wasn’t my attempt.”

    I really don’t want to go into it any further. I bet you don’t. Not meant to be offensive = we didn’t mean for certain people to ever see it. Lying sack of shit.

  4. So that’s ugly, but people who call Palin a “Cunt” isn’t? The ugliness of the posts towards Palin, on this site, and others is just as vile.

    Go back and look at your posts and the posts of your readers and tell me about ugly.

  5. KG,
    You do have a point. Callling Palin a “cunt” is not above board by any stretch of the imagination. There is enough to say about her without resorting to that word. I happen to like “clueless” myself.

    But, at the same time, I don’t hear anyone suggesting we should “kill” Sarah Palin.

  6. BJ,

    Nice to see you acknowledge KG’s point. Yes, that Obama bucks bit was not funny at all.

    But point not well enough made to motivate you to take down the “my pussy is hot” graphic?

    But you know that if there were some sexual innuendo in the Obama bucks bit, the ACLU would ride the First Amendment stallion to the rescue — or is that only if Larry Flynt prints something utterly offensive like saying Falwell engages in incest?

    Or suggesting that Todd Palin impregnated Bristol Palin?

    Nice bed fellows you have in the Obama camp!


  7. …kg & sty…sooooo, fucking transparent…

    …or maybe my extra chromosome gives me the power to see through bullshit like yours…

    …but then you’re not as good at yer shit as the whiny old man you support…it was almost beautiful how he quickly went from a defensive stance regarding the underhanded tactics his campaign has used against obama, to declaring himself the real victim of unfair & despicable practices…
    …nice touch, indeed but i believe it was seen through by a good portion of the populace…

  9. I really hope that there’s not any confusion about the huge difference between words that are just outright disrespectful, and words that promote, propagate, or foster hatred. it would be like comparing larry flynt to hitler. ultimately, by buying into any party that identifies with the worst kind of human slander imaginable, it would be your mind and your right to a free-thinking existence falling prey to the system. i’m not even talking shit. i’m just saying, “nice bedfellows you have, too, bro.”

  10. Gotta admit, I’m not surprised. America likes to think it’s that “Bright shining city on the hill” but it has its fair share of ignorant motherfuckers. All those “Undecided” voters are just Democrats who can’t vote for McCain, but won’t vote for Obama. I’m less worried about the outright stupid racist than the loners, who bouyed by what they perceive to be a culture of allowance, goes ahead and does something. Rove, Libby, Hilton (sorry, but 2 DUI’s a coke bust, skipping rehab, and 86 minutes in jail!?!, if that was me I’d be in county for a year no question) have helped perpetuate the “do what you want, no consequences” attitude that extends from BushCo. to that S.M.I.L.E (Soccer Mom I’d Like to Execute) who thinks that putting down the mochochino and cell phone in order to touch the turn signal is to much trouble. Sorry, but because I’m black a lot of people seem to think I have an opinion about this election (and I do but only as a yellow dog democrat). That and they’ve cancelled The Middleman so I have some extra thinking time.

  11. TedBike3000 – I am really starting to think we have more than our fair share of ignorant mofos here. Like the bumper sticker I read stated, looks like the gene pool needs some chlorine.

    And well said Snake Hawk, good post.

    Smarter – what election hasn’t been full of spoofs on candidates, often pretty tasteless? Can you recall one that stirred this much anger and apparent hatred though? And where does it all seem to be coming from/going towards? Tasteless vs. Racist, are you saying they are comparable?
