Obama's critics are racist--unless they're DUmmies
If you oppose President Obama, if you don't like him, you MUST be a RACIST! You're criticizing him because, as a racist Rethuglican, you can't STAND having a black man in the White House! Unless of course you're a DUmmie. Then you have free rein to criticize Obama all you want, because, as a progressive, ipso facto, you CANNOT be a racist, and you're only criticizing him because he's let us down by not being progressive enough.
That's about the size of things in DUmmieland. And the DUmmies are too dense to see their DUbble standard--as we'll see demonstrated today in this THREAD, "MO State Fair clown dresses up as Obama and gets run down by bull" and this THREAD, "UPDATE Shameful Missouri State Fair stunt smears Obama."
See, here's what happened. There was a rodeo at the Missouri State Fair over the weekend, and the rodeo clown came out with an Obama mask on and got chased around by a bull, as rodeo clowns are wont to do. The crowd laughed and cheered. Now I personally don't find that shtick all that funny, but some people do. De gustibus non est disputandum. I mean, who can explain how Carrot Top is able to make a living?
Well, anyhoo, you'd think that the Missouri State Fair just conducted a Ku Klux Klan rally, complete with lynching and cross burning. Never mind that there's a long history in America of people making fun of an unpopular president, even going so far as donning a mask of the fellow and doing antics that mock him. No, if you do anything to mock BARACK, you must be a racist!!
So let us now travel to DUmmieland, where eight years of caricaturing George W. Bush as "Chimpy McBushitler" and "Chimpus Khan" were perfectly OK, and where the hypocrisy on this day runs in Rodeo Red, while the commentary of your humble guest correspondent, Charles Henrickson, who lives in Missouri but hasn't been to the fair, is in the [Barackets]:
MO State Fair clown dresses up as Obama and gets run down by bull
[Oh, I don't think Obama ever gets run down by bull. Indeed, he thrives on it!]
Most of Missouri is out of touch with reality.
[Said a member of the Reality-Based Community®.]
What racist crap!
[Yes! CLEARLY racist! There can be NO other explanation!]
I remember when I went to see Independence Day in the theater. When the aliens blew up the White House, the audience erupted in cheers. Clinton was President then.
[Well, uh . . . that's, uh . . . hmmm . . . that's because Clinton was The First Black President. I mean, before the current First Black President, of course.]
If I had been at a rodeo 10 years ago, and if they'd had a clown dressed up as Dubya, I would have been cheering for the bull.
[Send in the clowns--as long as they're wearing Bush masks. Diogenes, call off your search. We have found an honest DUmmie.]
Every last bit was meant to be racial.
[Now we've found a mind-reader.]
It wasn't racist when clowns did it for Bush . . . it's not racist now.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!!!]
Which clowns? How did they make fun of his race?
[That's a clown question, bro.]
W.H. Harrison's campaign involved races between two teams rolling huge balls of cheese up a hill.
I think Obama has been disrespected at a level that many if not most of us has ever seen.
[I guess you had your eyes closed during the Nixon, Reagan, and Bush administrations.]
When will it end?
[January 20, 2017. I'm counting down the days.]
After all he has done. . . .
[That's the problem.]
I get mad at him over policy. . . .
[Then you must be a racist!]
Meanwhile, I live in the projects and have a lot of black and brown friends. That's how I like it.
[Dear DUmmie loyalsister, how can we neanderthals become as noble and enlightened as you? How can we ever measure up?]
I will never go to Missouri.
many blame Obama for problems created by Bush. And they defend their ugliness by comparing their rabidly racist comments to the legitimate criticism leveled at the lying, usurper Bush.
[IT'S ALL BUSH'S FAULT!! EVERYTHING!!!]
Obama is far from perfect and I am no fan of many of his policy approaches. . . .
How far will the continuing backlash go? Obama-hate is getting out of control.
[Just wait until Obamacare kicks in. You ain't seen nothin' yet.]
"Obama-hate is getting out of control." Including right here on DU. It's a disgrace.
Can you point some of that out? I haven't seen any hatred. there is some pointed criticism of unwarranted spying on Americans and proposals to cut SS, but I haven't seen any hatred.
[No, it CAN'T be hatred. We're progressives! Criticize Obama? It's not racism when WE do it.]
Look in here. . . .
[DUmmie michreject links to a thread where lots of DUmmies DUmp on Obama.]
That is one ugly thread. It looks hardly different from how we used to bash Bush.
[DUmmie Isoldeblue stumbles into some truth, thus coming perilously close to realizing that harsh criticism of a president--even mockery--can be motivated by something other than racism.]
Democratic Underground has turned into Obama Underground. my President - worship him or leave. People are now willing to accept murder, torture, domestic spying, proposed cuts to SS and Medicare, and post bizarre excuses and personal insults whenever someone questions Dear Leader.
[OK, DUmmie Isoldeblue made a free throw, but now DUmmie Doctor_J makes a slam dunk! And for this Brief Moment of Mental Clarity, we hereby award Doctor_J today's Kewpie Doll! Congratulations!]
Disagreeing with policy positions is not hate.
[Nor is it racism. Thank you very much. I rest my case.]
They are proving that their hatred is race related and nothing else. Bigots will be bigots.
[And DUmmies will be DUmmies.]
F*** Missouri. F*** Obama haters. F*** anyone that has looked at the man cross-eyed.
[F*** all those haters! I HATE haters!!]
America has, because of the election of Barack Obama, let it's true color(s) be shown to the world, Been going on six years now and the man's skin color is still the major factor that a substantial body of the populace hate him for and judges him on. This country is racially, psychotically sick.
[Canada beckons. Heed the call.]
This has to be punished.
[To The Hague with the rodeo clown! Off with his mask! Off with his head!]
No amount of Raid can eradicate this scourge.
[Napalm! Napalm the whole state of Missouri!]
Cut those f***ers off the government tit!
[No lactose for the intolerant!]
Let them use their g*dd*mn farm subsidies to fund their f***ing fair!
Well, to be fair. . . .
[To be fair or not to be fair, that is the question.]
Well, to be fair, if Bush would have jumped out in an orange jumpsuit 6 years ago, I would have cheered.
[So I guess it depends on whose clown is being gored.]
Conflating Bush hate with Obama hate is absolute bullsh*t. One is nothing more than unadulterated racism and the other is about political leadership and policy. It is absolutely naive to think that these people hate Obama because of his political policy.
[And you know this how?]
If Obama is a "Marxist-Socialist", then I'm the Prince of Wales.
[Greetings, Charles! How's the grandkid?]
Mocking the president is immoral.
[Unless his name is Chimpy McBushitler.]
