Right Wing Idiocy of the Day: ‘Obama Ate Dog, Liberal Dumbass!’

Logic fail
Wingnuts • Views: 27,691

If you think the proper answer to Mitt Romney’s abuse of his dog is to point out that Barack Obama ate dog meat as a child in Indonesia, you might be a wingnut.

Seriously, right wing bloggers. This is the most pathetic example of “I’m rubber, you’re glue” politics I’ve seen yet. You’re kidding, right?

Of course, they’re not kidding. They think equating a child eating dog meat to a grown man torturing and abusing a helpless animal is perfectly logical.

Received this morning through the LGF contact form, from an admirer who used the email address “youRsuchAnIdiot@Dumbass.com” and the subject “show us a dog’s view from Obama’s dinner plate:”

Hey dumbass why don’t you show us what it looks like when a dog is prepared for dinner. Obama ate dog. He even stated it in his book. LMAO Liberal dumbass!

Seamusgate isn't a huge deal to me but if this dummy thinks there's equivalency between Obama's actions as a boy with his stepdad in a foreign nation and Romney's as a 40 year old father then there's something not functioning.

My kids, if they didn't like what the rest of the family was having for dinner, had the option of "peanut butter sandwich" or "Cheerios."

Maybe they didn't have peanut butter or Cheerios in Indonesia.

Can't discuss until I've done both. /

Considering that some cultures will eat stuff that others wont, I'm not particularly shocked that Indonesians can and do eat dog, or that Obama did so while in Indonesia (and it's not like this is some surprise or amazing revelation - it was in his book that came out years back).

However, American values on animal cruelty are something that most people are familiar with (being in America and all) - and most wouldn't treat their own pets like that.

To further expand on this, note that Obama was a child at the time he admitted to eating dog, and wasn't in any position to argue otherwise. That compares with Romney, who was an adult at the time the incidents occurred with his dog.

One thing is not like the other.

The GOP/TP could not operate or function without being "outraged" or foisting fear and loathing. I shudder to think what would happen if we had an event such as this. I'm sure the steady leadership and thoughtful members would act reasonably.

I think Romney's treatment of the family pet is a big deal in that it demonstrates to me a lack of good judgment and a lack of empathy to the point of depraved indifference to the life and well-being of a living critter in his care. That he thought this was a funny story some years later that he felt demonstrated his ability to deal with crises emphasizes those disturbing qualities. I have a number of other reasons I would not vote for the man, but these are included in the list.

This is rather absurd because I found semi-popular reference to this as far back as 2007, 2008. It's a passage in his book in which he describes,

With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy).

This took place somewhere around the time that Obama was 8 years old and living in Indonesia. Whatever one feels about either this or the Seamus story there is a big difference between the experience of an 8 year old boy in a foreign land where dog meat not an uncommon staple and a 36 year old mature adult. In any case, it's false to say "Obama eats dog meat." I tried sheeps brains once and nearly puked.

I've always thought that the fixation on not eating dogs is a bit weird. I mean, I can understand why people are squeamish about it, but let's face it, a dog is pretty much on a similar sentience level as a lot of other animals that people have no problem farming for meat.

The Evidence That Might Be Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Undoing

A three-person disciplinary panel of the state’s high court said there was enough evidence to prove “beyond a reasonable doubt” that the sheriff and three of his closest allies participated in what the panel believes was federal crime in December 2009.

The alleged crime doesn’t stem from battles over immigration, pink underwear or any of the other things that have made Arpaio famous. Instead, it deals with a feud among local government officials in which the panel said the sheriff and his allies took things way too far.

The ruling was the result of almost two years of investigation by the State Bar of Arizona as well as two months of sworn testimony, including from Arpaio himself, in front of the Supreme Court’s disciplinary panel last year.

The panel looked at whether the two prosecutors, former Maricopa County Attorney Andrew Thomas and his aide Lisa Aubuchon, violated ethics rules as part of the feud with local government officials in the county. During the melee, Thomas and Arpaio launched criminal investigations into at least 14 people they were doing battle with, largely over budget issues.

I think it's because we're so used to seeing dogs as our best friends. I understand the taboo. Beating Obama up over it on the other hand is painfully stupid.

To illustrate: when Zedushka was a teenager, he hitchhiked through Europe. One of his fondest memories is riding the ferry from Brindisi (Italy) to Patras (Greece) and getting off the ferry where vendors were selling some kinda meat on a stick, which they were broiling right out by the sea, so the aroma wafted to the ferry passengers. He ate a bunch of those sticks.

I asked him if he knew what kind of meat it was (never mind it wasn't kosher) and he said "I dunno, lamb? Goat?"

I've been all over the world at one time or another. I consider myself to have good insight into, and respect for, other nations and cultures. There is an exception to this, however. I am very squeamish about food. If it's not Texas-Mexican home cooking, I am at least suspicious of it. I know, the Aztecs made tacos out of those disgusting little hairless dogs of theirs, but that was a long time ago. They gave up that and human sacrifice at about the same time, which seems fitting to me.

OK, I'll admit that Philly, Chicago, and NYC have good grub, too, but most other places are neolithic camp sites or cannibal warrens by comparison.

As for English food, I think the great explorers like Drake, Hawkins, etc. fanned out across the globe and started the British empire mostly because they were looking for something decent to eat.

Why do the wingnuts assume they'll be able to punch liberals (i.e. any one who disagrees with them) in the mouth with impunity? They seem to believe that because 'liberals' are generally anti-violence that 'liberals' are incapable of violence.

News for you guys. This 'liberal' had spent much of his adult life studying violence. It's why I'm anti-violence. But I'm more than capable of it if I deem it necessary.

Republicans would remove the requirement that dogs get "unfettered access" to an exercise area outdoors. Even more disturbing, Tea Party Republicans would remove requirements that the water be "free of debris, feces, algae, and other contaminants." In addition, the new legislation removes the requirement that the dog's living space be cleaned of waste at least once a day.

They're remarkably consistent in their treatment of the helpless.

Today's "Projecting More Than An Imax Theater" statement comes from our ol' favorite, John Boehner:

Boehner accuses Obama of ‘bogeyman’ re-election strategy

Republican House Speaker John Boehner charged that President Barack Obama's re-election strategy will be to "pull out every bogeyman they can" to scare voters and distract them from economic issues. The speaker made the remarks in a CBS News interview aired Wednesday.

Boehner, who hails from Ohio, spoke out as Obama traveled to the critical battleground state to defend his handling of the Great Recession, the top issue on voters' minds heading into the general election campaign.

"The president's going to try to make the election about anything other than his failed economic policies, because he can't run on his record," the speaker told CBS News. "And so they're going to pull out every bogeyman they can."

Abused, definitely not. Eaten depends on what's available.

Nobody thinks goat is that weird to eat, and goats are pretty freaking smart. Many breeds of them, anyway.

I unwittingly ate goat a couple of years ago. My friend and I were at our favorite restaurant in Mykonos, sitting at the bar waiting for our table and while chatting with the bartender (it's a family owned restaurant and we've been going for years), she put a plate of "nosh" down and we ate it. Only later did I find out it wasn't lamb (which is what it tasted like to me). Very tender.

The "Warren Adkins" interviewed in this report is actually the pioneer gay rights activist Jack Nichols, co-founder of the DC branch of the Mattichean Society. He led the first gay rights march on the White House in 1965, and developed the earliest links between gay rights and various liberal churches. He was later a writer and columnist. He died in 2005.

My brother's dog ate our neighbor's goat.

Well... actually, he ate half the goat. Left the other half on their front lawn. We weren't rural people, this was an upscale suburb and neighbor-girl had a pet for her 4H project.

The dog was gone the next day. Dad told us he gave it to the Army... but in hindsight, I'm pretty sure that was a lie.

Seamusgate isn't a huge deal to me but if this dummy thinks there's equivalency between Obama's actions as a boy with his stepdad in a foreign nation and Romney's as a 40 year old father then there's something not functioning.

Agreed. I find trying to make some kind of substantial statement by focusing on "Seamusgate" to be silly. There's enough completely and utterly bankrupt in Romney's political ideology to do the job. Libz should stay out of the stupid rhetoric game, because the frightwing is much, much better at it. Not that the frightwing would stop this kind of idiocy if libz stopped doing it, but the frightwing actually motivates people with this kind of non-serious nonsense because they have a huge media mouthpiece that will promote this stuff with no shame whatsoever.

On a tangential note, a while back I was talking to a Japanese student (she's a medical biological researcher) about the movie "The Cove," which depicts what seems to most Americans (me included) as cruel hunting of dolphins where they're herded into a cove and slaughtered in water that runs red with blood.

She pointed out that it seemed to her hypocritical for Americans to be so outraged when we (well, most of us) turn a blind eye to the cruelty of the poultry and meat industries. I'm not sure that the parallel is precise, but I do think that she has a point. Our collective moral smugness is pretty hard to defend at times.

Okay.

But political discourse in America thrives on irrelevance these days.

If Romney can make a convincing case that he will do a better job of running this country - and doing so as if it were a country rather than a business - then I would consider voting for him.

So far he has said or done little to convince me.

Gotcha. That's part of his problem though. He's hellbent on repeating the tired cliche that this nation needs to be run like a business.Anyhow my whole original point was that comparing what Obama did as a boy with what Romney did as a grown man is stupid. I am not going to be voting against Romney because of what he did to his dog. It bothers me he did that yes but it's not why I am voting against him.

Like the Spitfire and B-17, the Beech Bonanza had a role in the creation of the Israeli Air Force. Unlike the Spits and Forts, it has returned to IDF service in the twenty-first century.
In May, 1948, South African Zionist Boris Senior purchased one of the first production Bonanzas and flew it to what was then the Palestine mandate. Among other things, he stopped to refuel in none other than Luxor, Egypt, then veered from his declared destination of Beirut and landed at a clandestine field run by the nascent aviation branch of the Haganah. There it was rigged with bomb racks and, reportedly, a side-firing machine guns in time for independence on May 15th. It was actually the fastest plane in the new IDF until the first real warplanes arrived later in the month. It was involved in many operations, including the successful attack on an Egyptian naval force that was preparing a seaborne landing near (or perhaps in) Tel Aviv. Two more early Bonanzas arrived later in the year. 1
More than 50 years later, the IDF acquired several examples of the current A-36 Bonanza for general liaison and light transport work.

1 An Illustrated Guide to the Israeli Air Force by Bill Gunston, 1982. (Author Gunston was involved in Senior's flight from South Africa to Israel.)

re: #18 Gus

This is rather absurd because I found semi-popular reference to this as far back as 2007, 2008. It's a passage in his book in which he describes,

This took place somewhere around the time that Obama was 8 years old and living in Indonesia. Whatever one feels about either this or the Seamus story there is a big difference between the experience of an 8 year old boy in a foreign land where dog meat not an uncommon staple and a 36 year old mature adult. In any case, it's false to say "Obama eats dog meat." I tried sheeps brains once and nearly puked.

It's entirely irrelevent.

If you ask me what young Barack Obama should have done when his stepfather offered him some dog/snake/grasshopper, the answer is, 'Give it a try.'

If you ask me what young Mitt Romney should have done when starting out for Canada, the answer is, "Let the dog in the back with the kids, Mitt, or you're gonna regret it when he freaks out."

What I can't figure out is if the nutter blogs know this, and it's just a fun comeback to people complaining about Seamus, or if they think they're actually on to something significant. I can no longer tell.

327 SanFranciscoZionist  Wed, Apr 18, 2012 2:47:43pm

re: #45 NJDhockeyfan

Considering that Obama was a child in Indonesia when this happened (if true) this is a nontroversy IMO. He would have had no idea what he was being fed.

Jim Treacher is an idiot.

It sounds like the stepdad wanted to let him experience some of the more interesting local foods, which is, frankly, one of the few positive things I've heard about the man.

re: #226 sagehen

My brother's dog ate our neighbor's goat.

Well... actually, he ate half the goat. Left the other half on their front lawn. We weren't rural people, this was an upscale suburb and neighbor-girl had a pet for her 4H project.

The dog was gone the next day. Dad told us he gave it to the Army... but in hindsight, I'm pretty sure that was a lie.

So that's where the Army gets their goat-eating dogs from.

It's a completely valid comparison ... if you regard a middle-aged Romney to have the maturity, judgement, and free-will of a 7-year old Obama.
