In Which Chris Rock Pees in the Right Wing Punchbowl on the Fourth of July

Comedian’s tweet leads to massive wingnut tantrum

There goes that Chris Rock again, rattling the right wing’s cage:

Well, you know that the incredibly patriotic keyboard commandos of the wingnutosphere weren’t going to take that lying down. Nobody talks trash about the Fourth!

Michelle Malkin’s fake news site twitchy.com did their now-familiar schtick, digging through random comments on Twitter and clutching their pearls over each horrible one of them: Shameful: Aaron Sorkin, Left Celebrate Independence Day by Slamming America; Update: Chris Rock Joins In: ‘Happy White Peoples Independence Day’; Don Cheadle Laughs Along; Zach Braff Piles on.

It’s fun to just pick out the borderline illiterate Twitchy editorial comments from their cut-and-paste jobs:

Unbelievable. Yet, totally believable since it is so predictable. As always, members of the bitter and hateful Left jump at the chance to slam the country that provides them the opportunity and freedom to spew their hatred.

[…]

They will have a lot of unfollowing to do today, sadly.

[…]

Non-Americans join in the bashing. But, hey, let’s totally appease those who hate us, right? Citizens of the world and all.

[…]

Sadly, it’s not just people from other countries. Americans enjoying the freedom that this country, a beacon of light to world, provides decide to “celebrate” with hate as well.

[…]

They are all following the lead of the contemptible Aaron Sorkin. Of course, he has no problem earning millions and enjoying the lifestyle he could only have in suck-y America.

[…]

These citizens decide to provide a little lesson for the haters.

[…]

And this Twitter user sums it up in a nutshell.

[…]

Amen.

It’s okay, pitiful Left. Keep hating; you have the freedom to do so in America, you see. Try doing that anywhere else. Those of us who aren’t hate-filled and delusional will keep loving our country and cherishing the freedom provided by this great nation.

Update: Chris Rock joins in the slamming.

[…]

Some lessons for Mr. Rock.

[…]

Truth is hard.

Update: Actor Don Cheadle finds Rock’s tweet absolutely guffaw-worthy.

[…]

Update: Actor Zach Braff wants in on the action:

[…]

Happy “Independence to Rip Off Other Celebrities’ Tweets” Day, Zach!

The comments from Twitchy readers are exactly what you’d expect — they’re calling Chris Rock a racist over and over and over, telling him to go back to Africa, telling him to go to Cuba, calling him ugly, saying he wants to turn America into “Rhodesia” and kick out white people, and saying he wants to replace all the white Christian holidays with black socialist ones.

And another race-baiting festival of right wing butthurt is going on at breitbart.com: Chris Rock Wishes Us ‘Happy White Peoples Independence Day’.

Still carrying a grudge against a country that has made Chris Rock wealthy and famous way beyond where his waning talents should’ve taken him, this was how the once-interesting and once-edgy comedian celebrated the 4th of July on Twitter today…

To divisive racialists like Rock, nothing will ever be enough. Not a Civil War, not electing a black president, not making “Head of State” a modest hit.

There is, however, a special day coming up I think we can ALL enjoy, and that’s March 15, the one-year anniversary of the big, tough, bad ass Chris Rock attacking a woman.

All for having the sheer liberal audacity to mention that when the Declaration of Independence was adopted, this country was a slave-holding country. In other words, the truth.
