Single Flat-Out Dumbest Wingnut Post of the Day

Wingnuts • Views: 15,885

In the non-stop deluge of Obama Derangement Syndrome that pours daily out of the right wing blogosphere, one site regularly stands out for its excessive, extravagant dim-wittedness. One blog is a beacon of stupidity, a shining symbol of what can be achieved by an illiterate religious fanatic boiling with crazed hatred and homophobia in the swamp that passes for right wing commentary, a blogger whose exceptionally thick-headed posts are often turned into Fox News items and cited with approval by all the top wingnuts.

I’m referring, of course, to the renowned Jim “Dim” Hoft, otherwise known as “Gateway Pundit,” the cretin who once accused me of “supporting child porn in schools” because I criticized his use of an anti-gay hate site as a source. Hoft writes his blog under the auspices of First Things, the right wing Catholic site founded by Richard John Neuhaus — and Hoft’s unrelenting idiocy seems to sit just fine with them.

Case in point: today Hoft mustered his considerable writing and analysis powers to come up with our Single Flat-Out Dumbest Wingnut Post of the Day: BUMMER. Kid Dresses Up as Obama Joker For White House Halloween Party.

To set the scene: at the White House Halloween party, kids in costume are filing past Obama as he hands out gift packages; there’s a princess, a detective, a ghost, a skeleton, and then, an African American kid wearing the Joker face paint from the enormously popular Batman movie, The Dark Knight.

Of course, as soon as Hoft sees a black face wearing Joker makeup, it can only mean one thing in his alleged mind: it’s an Obama Joker!

Hoft’s ham-handed graphic rams the point home, in case anyone missed it:

President and Michelle Obama greeted kids for Halloween at the White House.

They didn’t expect this…

One of the kids dressed as Obama Joker.

The kid forgot to write “Socialist” on his T-shirt.

The president pushed the poor child on his way.

Here’s the video. President Obama doesn’t “push” anyone, and he doesn’t even react to the Joker mask. Why should he? It’s Halloween, and the kid picked a scary mask from a Batman movie.

But the dumbly racist “Obama Joker” image is so iconic to fools like Hoft that they’ve apparently forgotten where it came from.

This story is now being pushed by both Fox Nation and Glenn Beck’s fake news site The Blaze, proving once again that it’s impossible to be too stupid for right wing media.

UPDATE at 11/1/10 3:18:18 pm:

But wait … it gets even better, because in this higher quality video posted by the White House, you can clearly see that the kid wasn’t wearing Joker makeup at all — it was a Grim Reaper costume (h/t Gus 802). The section in question starts at about 1:50.
