DUmmies can't STAND having a black man in the Senate!
First of all, let me say right off the bat: I do not want to do a whole DUFU on the DUmmies' demand for gun control. Not that there's any lack of material. All of DUmmieland, 90+% of the threads right now--this is ALL they're talking about. Here are some typical, actual thread titles: "F*** the 2nd Amendment!!!" "F*** THE NRA!" "Nobody needs to own a gun. NOBODY." "To the 2nd amendment extremists - you have the blood of children on your hands." "If there are bigger pussies in the world than gun nuts, I don’t know who the f*** they are." "Obama is not going to take your guns away. We are."
That's what's going on in DUmmieland right now. I kid you not. But seeing as how this is the DUmmie FUNNIES, the first rule of the DUFU is, it's got to be funny. And I didn't think that would be. All it would be is . . . DUmmie: "We're outraged! Children died! F*** you gun nuts! We're gonna take your guns away!" FReeper: "Oh yeah? Come and try!" Et cetera, et cetera. Meh.
BTW, I do think that gun control would have helped in the Connecticut situation: Mrs. Lanza should have controlled her guns better, kept them locked up away from her disturbed son. Ultimately, what might have helped was more son control.
But let's turn the page and move on to politics more suited for satire. And that came today in the news that South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is naming Rep. Tim Scott to be the replacement for outgoing Sen. Jim DeMint. So now here we have a minority woman governor naming a minority man--a black man--to replace an evil white oppressor. Tim Scott will be the ONLY African-American in the United States Senate! So the DUmmies are jumping for joy, applauding the Republicans for their enlightened approach, yes? No no no no no. What we learn from several threads today is this: The racist DUmmies can't STAND having a black man in the Senate!
We start with this THREAD, "Haley to name Tim Scott to Senate Seat (SC)," and take it from there. So let us now dodge the verbal bullets flying around DUmmieland and go watch a high-tech lynching, in Racist Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, more in favor of government control than gun control, is in the [brackets]:
Haley to name Tim Scott to Senate Seat (SC)
[Huh? Wha--?? I thought it was going to be Stephen Colbert! Weren't there polls? Shouldn't she have to follow a poll?]
Colbert should run in 2014
[South Carolina is not Minnesota. The Franken factor may not work there.]
I don't think he's as crazy as Alan West.
[Now why would you compare Tim Scott to Allen West? Scott is not replacing West; he's replacing DeMint. But let's see, why would you do that? Tim Scott . . . Allen West . . . what could it be? Oh, I don't know, could it be . . . RACISM??]
On the plus side, I am glad there will be at least 1 black senator, even if he's on the wrong side. Too bad Patrick has basically ruled out running for Kerry's seat.
[Maybe Deval Patrick will name William Rivers Pitt to take Kerry's seat. Hey, it could happen.]
It's crazy that even though Obama got over 70% of the Latino vote, the 2 Latino who have been mentioned as future presidential candidates are both Republican.
[It's racism, that's what it is. Democrats are racists.]
He's not only a Republican, he's also a Tea Bagger like Demint.
[He's just another Deminted Republican.]
he could be purple with yellow dots, and it still wouldn't be a plus!!!
[This DUmmie is an Itsy-Bitsy Teeny-Weeny Yellow-Polka-Dot Bigot-Meanie. And a Purple-People Hater too.]
A raving wingnut is a raving wingnut. . . .
[A racist Democrat is a racist Democrat.]
this jerk is a food-stamps-denier, a Labor punisher, an "impeachment" a-hole, an earmarks hypocrite, one of those Gawd-talkers-to. . . .
[Sound good to me.]
[Can someone say Tolkienism? Here is a DUmmie reacting to the news . . .]
I don't want to be on the side of defending any republicans, but calling someone a token seems to cross the line of good taste. I think we can find ample reasons to criticize this guy without involving race.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
It is in bad taste for an African American to align themselves with the modern GOP.
[This pasty-white liberal Democrat DUmmie is telling black people what they can and cannot do. Nice.]
Is a Democratic pick-up in South Carolina possible with this guy running for reelection?
[Yes! You just need to run THIS man in 2014 . . .]
[It's not easy being Greene.]
