[I just sat down to write a post about these dumbasses in their dumbass t-shirts but had a sense that I’d covered this ground before. Turns out, I have. Soooooo, here it is. When idiots get some new material, I’ll write some new material. Also, Dave Weigel? Journalism fail. Then again, folks figured out you were a hack when you posted dick pics to Twitter during WeinerMadness 2011. Is there no one left who take journalism seriously? Don’t look at me. I’m just a blogger. -ABLxx 7/5/11]
At a fourth of July celebration in Lexington Kentucky yesterday, white folks were wearing t-shirts that had “Yup, I’m a racist” emblazoned on the front. A reporter at the Louisville Independent Examiner interviewed some of these asshats, and wouldn’t you know, they’re all idiots.
Look, I understand that people have valid differences of opinion when it comes to government. Small versus big. Regulation vs. deregulation. Low taxes vs. high taxes. I GET IT.
But here’s what you need to understand: From what I can tell, a lot of these Tea Party people do not know what the hell they are talking about. They just don’t. These are the same people who were screaming about healthcare reform, and Obamacare out of one side of their mouths, while screaming “keep the government out of Medicare!” out of the other. These are not people who are using their noggins, is what I’m saying.
Ask your average Tea Partier what the hell it is they want, and you won’t get an answer. They just “want their country back,” or they “want their rights back,” or they “want the government to stop taking away their rights.” So what’s the deal? Did somebody steal America? Can you please give it back to these asshats so they will STFU.
As for the “we want our rights back” crap, just replace the word “rights” with “guns.” That’s what this is really about, isn’t it? What rights have been stolen from you? Oh, none.
The truth is, Obama isn’t taking away anybody’s rights. You may disagree with his spending policies, and you may disagree with his social policies, and you may disagree with his foreign policy. But you cannot say that he is taking your rights away. Taxes for everyone but the hella rich are lower under Obama than they were under Bush. And really… with the guns? For Biebs’ sake, you’re allowed to carry guns in national fucking parks! The Supreme Court just affirmed everyone’s right to keep guns in their houses and blow people’s heads off for practically no reason at all! “I don’t like your face! And neither does my AK-47! ::rat-a-tat-tat::”
So seriously? Shut the hell up about Obama wanting to take your rights away. You don’t know what you’e talking about. And you’re stupid “Yup, I’m a racist” t-shirt is going to end up on the back of some black hipster in Silverlake, and everyone will “ooh and aah” at the irony of it all. Your stupidity is only making the hipsters stronger. So just fucking quit it, won’t you?
Check out the video after the jump. At the 1:30 marker, the woman being interviewed, who doesn’t have a clue as to what she’s talking about– not one clue — because she is probably a member of Fox Nation, says that Pakistanis are coming across the border in Arizona.
Fucking Pakistanis. Crossing the border. Into Mexico.
Go ahead and marinate on that for a minute.
Happy Birthday to you, America. Aren’t you proud?ABLC]
