#Twitchy.com Entertains the Wingnut Base With Obama-Hate

Extremely twitchy
Wingnuts • Views: 26,379

twitchy.com, the site owned by Michelle “Internment Camps” Malkin, has hit on a winning formula with the right wing base — just copy their nastiest and most logic-deprived tweets from Twitter, repost them with equally nasty and logic-deprived one-liners, insert some advertisements, and bam, you have a website that’s sure to please the knuckle-draggers’ contingent. Tonight’s example is yet another dose of pure unvarnished hatred for Barack Obama, which is mostly what twitchy.com sells.

This is the tweet that sets off the hatefest, a photo posted by the White House on the anniversary of Rosa Parks’ famous bus ride:

In the bizarre echo chamber of the right, this photo is just more evidence that President Obama is an out of control malignant narcissist: Narcissist in Chief: President Obama Honors Rosa Parks Anniversary With Picture of Himself; Update: Adam Baldwin With the Win.

The commentary on this image, from “Twitchy Staff:”

Just when you think President Obama’s impossibly large ego can’t grow further, he makes it happen!

President Obama loves to insert himself in other people’s biographies. He also loves to honor people, most recently Neil Armstrong and Vice President Biden, with pictures of himself. All. About. Him. His laser-like focus never wavers from his own image.

And the narcissism continues: To honor the 57th anniversary of the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus, President Obama paid homage with a picture of himself.

Yes, how dare the first black President of the US think he might be important. How much more uppity could a first black President be?

This is followed by several tweets from right wingers hurling insults at Obama, concluding with this one from Adam Baldwin (that the “Twitchy Staff” thinks is a “win”):

Wingnut humor is a sad, miserable, vindictive thing, full of fear and loathing. Twitchy commenters agree:

I don’t generally hate people, but I really do hate this man.

[…]

Is there really no end to that Pryck??

Why didn’t he dress in drag?? Bright RED lipstick would suit o’blamo to a T

[…]

I don’t hate him … its more a deep loathing, sizzling away on the front burner, with the gas turned all the way up. I don’t know him personally, therefore it hard for me to equate my feelings with regard to BHO to hate. I do hate what he, and the rest of the career kleptocrats are doing to this Nation.

[…]

Yeah…half white, half black….who cares? We care that he’s ALL Communist…

[…]

Hate, loathe and despise are just the tip of the iceberg of how I feel about him.

[…]

I’ve said before, I’ve enjoyed a whole life without feeling hate toward anyone…and then this man came along. Now I know what it feels like to hate.

There’s more in this vein, of course; a lot more, some of it openly racist. These are the people who consume what twitchy.com is selling.

Well Mike, I'm abnormal. -- When FZ appeared on the Mike Douglas show (solo, playing guitar with recorded backup), Mike said "Your latest album is called Zoot Allures. How do you come up with such names for your records?" (or something equally banal!) Frank's succinct reply is printed above.
