The comments are really pouring in to Fox News’s article about rapper Common’s invitation to the White House. Here’s a selection of some of the most recent ones, from just the first couple of pages:

well, sad to say we have a black-nixxer president. he’s a darker version of the white-nixxers Democrat Senator Robert Byrd spoke of on live CNN tv back in the 1990’s. now, because the word “nixxer” had “white” in front of it he never got called on it (plus, he’s in the favorite party - N.a.z.i.-crats) but we have a racist in the white house, what more can be said. uck fobama

I’ve never smoked a cigarette in my life. I’ve never had a drink, never had a joint, never had any drugs, never even had a cup of coffee. So, those are some good things about me. I probably have some bad things about me, too.

I really don’t understand how anyone is surprised anymore by the naked racism of Fox or its viewers.

When it gets down to calling the first lady a “ho” what more is there?

I think it is rather high time to turn the tables and simply say that yes indeed, that black president is smarter than the lily white GOP. He has done a lot to fix the economy while you guys simply wreck it by doing the same greedy BS over and over. He got Bin Laden while GOP boys had their thumbs in their asses. He is well regarded around the world, while Bush is an embarrassing a joke.

He loves his wife and is a dedicated father.

In fact, in every single way, he is better.

And this proves that white skin does not make up for lack of accomplishment.

re: #41 darthstar

Ah a chance to revise and extend my remarks from the ODT:

In a late-night appearance in the East Room of the Imperial Palace, Lord Vader declared that “justice has been done” as he disclosed that agents of the Imperial Army and stormtroopers of the 501st Legion had finally cornered Kenobi, one of the leaders of the Jedi rebellion, who had eluded the Empire for nearly two decades. Imperial officials said Kenobi resisted and was cut down by Lord Vader’s own lightsaber. He was later dumped out of an airlock.

The news touched off an extraordinary outpouring of emotion as crowds gathered in the Senate District and outside the Imperial Palace, waving imperial flags, cheering, shouting, laughing and chanting, “Hail to the Emperor! Hail Lord Vader!” In the alien protection zone, crowds sang “The Ten Thousand Year Empire.” Throughout the Sah’c district, airspeeder drivers honked horns deep into the night.

Dumped out an airlock? That sounds like Vader took a page out of President Laura Roslin’s playbook aboard the Galactica.

Conspiracy theorists quickly suggested that video showing a confrontation where Kenobi was willingly sacrificing himself when he was struck by Vader was the real deal and that Vader has created a whole paradigm shift to elicit support for the Empire. One such theorist - who goes by the name Kevin Smith, suggested that a crazy dude named George Lucas uncovered the original video, but later had to go back and made repeated changes to the video at the behest of others (perhaps against his will). Either that, or he became infected with some parasite that controlled his abilities.

It’s just become so common-place and never should have been. The internet and the past few years have really shined a light on the dark underbelly of this country.

I love how the same crowd who argues that illegal aliens should be shot if they get caught crossing the border are screaming that killing Bin Laden was illegal.

I won’t even pretend to take that line of debate seriously, unless it’s coming from someone who realistically might have taken the same line under Bush. Not because I’d agree with them, but because it would be clear it was actually their opinion.

Most of these guys would have cheered their fool heads off if Bin Laden had been captured, extradited to the US and shot without trial on the White House lawn—so long as it happened during a Republican presidency.

I have a friend in the anti-death-penalty movement, very active. All the anti-death-penalty activists hate the Mumia people, because they show up and act out at all events, and as far as she can tell, they have no principled disagreement with DP at all, they just want their guy freed or canonized or something. And they hog the media.

I hate it too and I am probably one of the biggest opponents of hte DP you’ll ever meet but let’s lie about what liberals stand for because we saw signs at ANSWER rallies.

You know what’s really sad? I’ve almost become desensitized to this shit. I mean now when someone points it out I am more inclined to respond with something like “Typical.” rather than outrage. It’s just become so common-place and never should have been. The internet and the past few years have really shined a light on the dark underbelly of this country. Fortunately there are more of us than them (I hope).

Thing that’s always distressed me is the thought of how many of these folks, hiding behind the anonymity of the net, are letting the racism they keep bottled up IRL run wild on the net. I look at the comments on such forums and wonder how many of these virtual Klansmen, in real life, are bankers, teachers, police officers, pilots, etc. The Digital Age has allowed men who, in time past had to hide behind white sheets, now hide behind screen names.

re: #74 SpaceJesus

and he has an entire political party right there to embrace him with open arms

Dovetail with historical fascism:

From the bottom it is simple race baiting, fear and malaise mixed with some seriously backwards interpretations of Christianity.

But at the top of the heap of the GOP mentality is the so called “objectivist” philosophy of the GOP. It forms a pseudo-intellectual veneer full of pretentious language to a program of glorified greed and indifference to others. Much can b blamed on the rather evil writings of Ayn Rand. Ron Paul liked this woman so much he named his son after her. She is the favorite author of Newt Gingrich, Clarance Thomas, Barton and of course, the Koch brothers. To be fair to Rand, greedy evil bastards would be that way without her, but she gave them high language to appear reasonable with.

Without exaggeration, it is an utterly self absorbed and self serving view of the world that would be very difficult to get further from normal definitions of goodness. She was born in Russia, got out from under the communist system after having been a teacher there. After coming to America, she insinuated herself into a certain NY intellectual and financial set. She developed a G-dless economic theory that is in all ways an exact counterpoint to the Stalinists and Marxism in general.

The central tenant she rejects is altruism and an individuals duty to other lesser people “bums” and “moochers.” She goes so far as to adamantly argue that altruism itself is evil. Her answer is a perverse and extreme view of Adam Smith which is in of itself unworkable without some form of limitless energy.

What is it with conservatives and the inability to understand that energy is conserved?

She wrote: “My philosophy, in essence, is the concept of man as a heroic being, with his own happiness as the moral purpose of his life, with productive achievement as his noblest activity, and reason as his only absolute.”


The implied philosophy of the ubermensch - the “individual as hero” as she put it, echoes Nietszche less than what fascists made of him. This is not lost on Americans who flirt with fascism. It is proof that taking an insane template and arguing the opposite, based solely on philosophy with no contact in the real world will produce an equally crazy result. As such, it is just as delusional, just as unrealistic in the actual world, just as heartless and just as utterly unworkable as Stalinism. However, it does very much appeal to the plutocrat. In this view, he is no longer shackled by any duty to society. In fact, society exists to serve him as he is the only one who drives it. Altruism leads to socialism. Socialism destroys all freedom. Freedom while defined in abstract and high language reduces to enjoying the benefits of the social contract yet none of the duties. So the cant goes….

But don’t take my word for it. Look at her and her philosophy for itself. You hear it dripping from the gorged mouths of plutocrats everyday. They are each convinced that they personally earned what they have and than no-one and no circumstance helped them and because of that owe nothing to society or anyone else. Simply evil.

First off, I think judging a woman simply because of her ideology is shallow as hell and secondly, Ann Coulter and “hot” should never be used in the same sentence. She’s not physically attractive at all. On a random beautiful woman, I always thought the woman who played Michael Corleone’s Sicilian wife in the Godfather was pretty.

“While not even casual hip-hop fans would characterize him as a controversial rapper…”

In other words, even casual hip-hop fans are barbarian scum. (No surprise.)

NJ police better be careful. They are being critical of Eric Holder’s “people”.

Ubama is working on some serious Karma, he and Moooooshele are in for a world of hurt when all this crap comes back at them 10 fold and it will; You can’t put that much hate a disrespect out without it coming back and biting you in the A$$. I would say 2012 will be the start of the Karamic revenge and continue until everyone who served under ubama and mooshele are in jail awaiting execution.

What’s wrong with the head wookie wanting another garbage mouthed Rev Wright clown to entertain them?

It is just so pathetic, how stupid these useful idiots in the media are. The amazing part is, they’ll tell you they are the smartest people on the face of the earth. They don’t give a damn what they are doing to the country their children have to live in. I want to spit on them!!

re: #153 HappyWarrior

It always amused me when I was told by right wingers that Ann Coulter was “hot” and used as an example why conservative women are more beautiful than liberal women. First off, I think judging a woman simply because of her ideology is shallow as hell and secondly, Ann Coulter and “hot” should never be used in the same sentence. She’s not physically attractive at all. On a random beautiful woman, I always thought the woman who played Michael Corleone’s Sicilian wife in the Godfather was pretty. Something about those dark haired girls, man though I’ve grown attracted to the more darker shade red heads too though not the gingers heh.

Ann Coulter looks like a skinny man in drag.

It is rather obvious from her shrill voice that she was born female, but if I had just seen a picture of her, I would think she was possibly a transgendered person who hadn’t had certain demasculinzing plastic surgery yet.

Speaking of beautiful Israeli women…back in oh, 68 or 69, there was an Israeli exchange student in my English class. I sat right behind her. She had copper colored skin and hair. She was the most gorgeous creature I’d ever seen. I barely passed English that semester.

Well there is the secret of guys like us getting the most beautiful women.

If a woman is truly beautiful and very smart, this society puts her at a tremendous disadvantage. The average pretty sorority types hate her and other women hiss in her presence. When she opens her mouth and is much smarter, then feminine insecurity does the rest.

With men, they already think they have no chance so when she opens her mouth and says something smart, they turn to complete jerks. Masculine insecurity does the rest.

The upshot is that such women are often very lonely and feel terribly isolated.

If you can talk to one of them intelligently without having your ego threatened, have reasonable manners and actually care about her ideas like you would with anyone else, getting a date is easy.

When it gets down to calling the first lady a “ho” what more is there?

I think it is rather high time to turn the tables and simply say that yes indeed, that black president is smarter than the lily white GOP. He has done a lot to fix the economy while you guys simply wreck it by doing the same greedy BS over and over. He got Bin Laden while GOP boys had their thumbs in their asses. He is well regarded around the world, while Bush is an embarrassing a joke.

He loves his wife and is a dedicated father.

In fact, in every single way, he is better.

And this proves that white skin does not make up for lack of accomplishment.

Obama is better in many ways than Bush. But how do you get that he is a more loving husband and a more dedicated father? By every indication, both presidents have been exemplary in this regard.

Well first off good luck.

Second of all C is always failing in grad school. However, I have never met a prof who gives them out freely. Hopefully she is no exception to this.

Any professor can make a test that is simply too much for the class. There is always a difference between what you think you covered, what was actually covered and what the students actually could be reasonably expected to absorb. That is what the curve is for. If your classes bombed a test, the assumption should not be that they are stupid, but rather that you over did the exam.

If it makes you feel any better, I was once convinced I had bombed a certain final utterly - it was Goldstein, classical mechanics. I had never walked out of an exam feeling I had stunk up a place so badly.

By absolute standards I had. I only got a 68 out of 100.

It turned out that was the highest grade in the class by 20 points. This was not because I was clever. It was because I happened to remember that a certain integral converged to pi/2. That saved my about 20 minutes that allowed me to work on more of the exam. It was a matter of trivia that saved me.

The point is that the exam was ridiculous for the class and the time considerations. That sometimes happens, and most professors recognize this.

I do recall many complaints that she had a reputation as a mean person who treated people “like the help.” I don’t recall anyone using the term wookie as a new form of the N word about her, or calling her physique names openly or disparaging her earned achievements.

Of course Nancy never went to Princeton either and was well kinda dumb.

Racism on Fox is new news because … ?

re: #182 LudwigVanQuixote

Well there is the secret of guys like us getting the most beautiful women.

If a woman is truly beautiful and very smart, this society puts her at a tremendous disadvantage. The average pretty sorority types hate her and other women hiss in her presence. When she opens her mouth and is much smarter, then feminine insecurity does the rest.

With men, they already think they have no chance so when she opens her mouth and says something smart, they turn to complete jerks. Masculine insecurity does the rest.

The upshot is that such women are often very lonely and feel terribly isolated.

If you can talk to one of them intelligently without having your ego threatened, have reasonable manners and actually care about her ideas like you would with anyone else, getting a date is easy.

That’s not such a bad deal for the lady. She could do worse than your sort.

re: #204 fenrisdesigns

It’s going to take a lot of hand-washing for Fox to deny that this is representative of their target audience. We’ll probably get some sugar-coated “only a few extremists” talk, but not much else.

One unfortunate unintended consequence of the internet is that whack jobs and buffoons can congregate in one “place” and therefore make themselves feel powerful and somewhat “normal.” It’s the echo chamber thing. Surely Fox has a way to ban people who post this kind of crap. There can’t be tens of thousands of folks with internet accounts doing this.

re: #220 Slumbering Behemoth

I don’t find her all that attractive, but FFS the comments on her looks are disgusting. If you don’t like her ideas, criticize those, not her looks.

We’re talking about the same petty, jealous assholes who made dog jokes about Chelsea Clinton when she was a kid. Comments about Michelle Obama’s looks are not surprising at all. Some people just can’t look past their grade-school mentality to talk policy disagreements. They’d rather just be assholes.

That said, I think she’s a pretty woman. I don’t think she’s a supermodel, but she’s attractive and knows her body well enough to dress in a flattering way. And the girls are going to be gorgeous when they get older.

I’m sorry, but I just didn’t have time to write out “anks” or hold the shift-key down while typing the letter g. Seriously…no response would have been better…and smarter.

I drove across country, back from the Tetons and saw some of the devastation from the floods in the mid 90’s…my folks were in Iowa with the Red Cross, 20mi off the interstate and I could not reasonably stop to see them….sheets of water to the horizon

Keeping your eyes on hers, is a good start for most guys.

This racism really has me wondering what the misogyny will look like when we have our first female president.

You already nkow what it will look like.

Three will be endless crude references to her menstrual cycle. There will be nonsense about her sex lif and her looks. Womens shows themselves will add to it by discussing her weight and her wardrobe more than her policies.

I really wish these White House Press Briefing transcripts included the names of the journalists asking the questions. This was kind of amusing:

Q — is it an appropriate thing for him to be here?

MR. CARNEY: He has spoken out about — very strongly against — as an elected official, as an American and as a father, against those kinds of lyrics. And he opposes them. But he does not think that that is the sum total of this particular artist’s work, which has been recognized by a lot of mainstream organizations and fair and balanced organizations like Fox News, which described his music as very positive.

Q Are you sarcastic when you say that?

But it would be even more amusing if the transcript indicated that final question came from the Fox WH correspondent. :P

He doesn’t masturbate either, he’s pure, like a male version of Christine O’Donnell wearing a woodland creature on his head.

Trump’s just conserving his essence! Besides, I think he was lying his ass off about drinking; rumor has it he has a stash of pure grain alcohol and rain water…

re: #151 Charles

I guess the word ‘watermelon’ isn’t in Fox News’s automatic comment filter, because they’re really yukking it up with the watermelon jokes over there.

I hate to ask if they’re breaking out the fried chicken references too…

/wish I didn’t have to…the bad craziness creeps

re: #219 lostlakehiker

I recall a lot that was said about Nancy Reagan. And not just by anonymous commenters dredged from some swamp.

Politics seems to bring out the most vicious sides of people. That aspect of it is pretty bipartisan.

That didn’t happen with Margaret Thatcher. I’m guessing the first woman to be president will be conservative [Republican? depends if that party survives]. A conservative woman will get the conservative vote because she’s a conservative, and she’ll earn some fence-sitter’s votes because she’s a woman.
