9/12 Teabagger Protester: “Barack Obama is too black to be President”

Sunday, September 13, 2009

In case you think you missed anything by not attending yesterday’s so-called 9/12 Teabagger protest in Washington DC, don’t worry because here’s a sample of the stupidity of the people in attendance.

This wingnut tells a reporter:

“Barack Obama is just a bad guy. He’s too black to be president.”

Watch it:

    I love how this clown tells the reporter to film the woman of color to his left as proof he’s not a racist. So clever!

    Maybe next year, this happy American family can leave their 10 year child home as well? This is how racism and stupidity is acquired: kids learn it from their idiot parents.

  2. Joe in Colorado says:

    According to this guy, his racism is justified because he has a black wife? Bizarre. This makes about as much sense as saying “my brother was killed by a drunk driver, so I get to drive drunk.” Sorry pal, this isn’t how the world operates.

  3. feminazi says:

    I agree, Tiny Dancer. Adults have the right to be as ignorant as they wish but they don’t have the right to infect their children with their ignorance. As I watch this video, the sight of the young boy holding the sign really makes my blood boil. This is not in any way an example of responsible parenting.

  4. Brigadoon says:

    Some in the mainstream media are reporting the crowd at between 1.5 to 2 million yesterday. I don’t know where they get this number from because the Washington DC police say the number was between 50,000 and 70,000 people.

  5. VicoDANIEL says:

    1.5 to 2 million? ROFL! Yeah and my last name is Kennedy and I have a trust fund! Please.

    The rightwing, corporate-owned media are shills for these extremists. They love to give them a voice because it’s lazy. They point a camera on them, then interview a few nuts like the guy in this video and pronounce themselves “the most reliable source of news in the world.”

    It will be very interesting next month to see how these same media elites report the March on Washington. If the expected numbers hold, we should have 150,000 to 250,000 depending on factors like weather and the swine flu.

    I expect CNN, FOX, and even MSNBC to downplay the numbers by at least 2/3rds.

    There’s a Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young song titled “Teach, Your Children Well.”

    The chorus goes:

    Teach your children well,
    Their father’s hell, did slowly go by,
    And feed them on your dreams,
    The one they picked, the one you’ll know by.

    I think the man in this video needs to listen to this song and think long and hard about the shit he’s feeding his kid. Assuming the kid in the video is his kid.

  7. this entire “tea bagging” crap should just be renamed a KKK rally – this is all about racism – nothing else.

    as much as these people hate liberals, democrats and the government – they hate blacks even more. and every day the “elders” of the GOP stay silent (which i guarantee they will) – moves this movement a little more closer to the introduction of violence.

    obama is in the proverbial rock and the hard place – he has to stay out of the fray because he will be demonized if he gets involved. and the less he gets involved the more it is driving the teabaggers insane

    nothing will satisfy them – short of martial law and the installation of cheney as president.

    we are fucked. period.

    oh – and the media is the world’s biggest enablers.

  8. Peace Nick says:

    Where were all of these patriotic Americans when George W. Bush was lying the nation into the Iraq war while cutting taxes on the rich?

    We had to borrow money from China to pay for it and now the CBO says it is unlikely the U.S. will ever be able to zero out the debt we now owe.

    I guess when a Republican borrows and spends the nation into a ditch, it’s OK, but then a Democrat spends money to help the American people, it’s all a communist plot.

  9. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    These people are fucking nitwits.

    A few weeks ago, McCain had a townhall out in Sun City and the audience peppered him with all sorts of questions about President Obama’s allegiance to the constitution. It was embarrassing. I’m quickly losing hope for this country.

    “Barack Obama is just a bad guy. He’s too black to be president.”

    And you’re too stupid to open your mouth.

  11. bradfrmphnx says:

    I really feel like our country is in trouble when I see things like this. Instead of moving forward, some are lost in past quagmires. I think it takes away from all of us the very liberties so many have fought and died for. I try hard to be positive, stand up for good, care about others, and help out my fellow man. This very same poor excuse for a man, will stand there and look you in the eye and tell you that Jesus doesn’t want gays to be married because it will ruin family values. Yet look at the example he is setting for his son. It is so disheartening to me.

  12. Abby Peripatetic says:

    I think for moderate conservatives — what few there are left in this country, such radical extremism is frightening.

    Signs depicting death camps, eugenics and wild claims Obama is Hitler isn’t red meat fodder.

    It’s lunacy.

  13. libhomo says:

    I couldn’t bring myself to even watch the video. I need to get around to doing the post I want to do about racism being a pickpockets diversion tactic.

  14. I didn’t even watch the video. So much stupidity going around. Not only is it immoral, it is illogical.

  15. Jolly Roger says:

    I said back in the 2004 campaign cycle that the antigay measures were simply ways to open the door to overt, naked racism.

    The Klanservatives have owned the Republiklan Party for 30 years. There is absolutely nothing surprising about any of this.

  16. majii says:

    Now I’ve seen it all, and I am truly disgusted. He is teaching his children to hate themselves. They are inter-racial just like President Obama. My daughter is African American and has been dating a white guy for almost 3 years. They plan on getting married sometime within the next year or two, so I’ll probably be grandmom to inter-racial kids, but I’ll never teach them to hate anyone. I don’t believe this man knows the difficulties he is creating for his children that they’ll have to deal with in the future as the demographics of America change. I do not feel sorry for his stupid wife, but as a retired educator who dealt with thousands of emotionally/psychologically damaged children for more than 30 years, I feel sorry their children.

  17. Big Hank says:

    Sorry son but I’m not buying the black woman is your wife. The energy and the body language just ain’t there.

    This guy is a clusterfuck moron. He’s the type who still thinks Iraq was behind 9/11.

    Man, is that kid gonna grow up to be a mess, or what? What a bizarre NIGHTMARE! Imagine if he were gay? With that sicko for a Dad and that dishrag for a Mom? Are there any atheist prayers one can say for the poor kid? Where was Social Services on that day? Sad, sad, sad.

    It just illustrates my point about the Czars & Czarina’s. The conservatards won’t be happy until everything is being run by Grand Dragons & Imperial Wizards.

    I attended 9-12 (so you didn’t have to!) and shot video of it. It refutes the wild attendance claims being made.
