Right Wing Rages Uncontrollably at Michelle Obama: “Someone Put a Bullet in That Fat Pig”

Sheer hatred
Wingnuts • Views: 30,429

Michelle Obama gave away the Best Picture award at last night’s Oscar telecast, and would you be surprised to learn that this has driven the wingnut keyboard commandos into fits of extreme racist rage? No? Me neither.

The right wing base is absolutely demented with dim-witted anger at Michelle Obama, ranting uncontrollably today at every single right wing website. They have a special hatred for the First Lady, so over the top it sometimes seems like a parody — but of course it isn’t.

I’ll just pick a few representative comments from two right wing sites. The references to “Star Wars” are their clever way of comparing Mrs. Obama to a Wookie. It’s one of their favorite racial slurs.

At Fox Nation:

At least Moochell is crashing the oscars now… Probably not as much fun as crashing through the forest and terrorizing tent campers.

[…]

Narcissists? Somewhere in the WH, the president has locked himself in a bathroom with a bottle of astroglide, a zucchini, and his press photos.

[…]

I wonder how many favors Barry had to call in to get that mule on stage.

[…]

Bought and paid for political plantation hor…

[…]

the First Wookie is with out a doubt and embarrassment to the nation, she has never held a real job, earned a dime herself or cares about this country, do not be surprised when George and Weezy are out of the White House she drops Barack quickly and gets her a NBA star.

[…]

The Obamas are like ill-bred ghettø kids who just won the lottery. Spendthrift, vulgar, irresponsible, and utterly filled with arrogant delusions of their own self-importance.

Disgusting.

[…]

Ugh. I would sooner French kiss an Óràngután.

[…]

Good for Michelle. This is the least masculine she’s looked in years, and that mop of a haircut really makes her aboriginal good looks shine. Lucky, lucky Barry.

[…]

Like a prom dress on a mule.

[…]

this racist is sickening. she has no problem spending tax payers money. thank you skin, food stamp voters for the no class Whitehouse.

[…]

Reminds us very much of Marie Antoinette.

At Hot Air:

Barf-o-Rama. And even in an updo the bangs make her look like Rick James.

[…]

Some country will make Obama king after he destroys Amerika.

[…]

What a hideous beast! What’s happened to our country? Is this some kind of freak-show or what- like Divinity eating poo off the sidewalk in that John Waters flick. My worst nightmare is a dream compared to this. Would someone please open the gates and let me out already?

[…]

Scientific studies show that animals are often attracted to shiny objects. just saying’.

[…]

I think Michelle has no intention of being an ex-monarch. This is all about her running for Senate and then president. After all, the transformation to socialism is not yet complete! Women like her and Hillary cannot stand to have their husbands accomplish more than they do.

[…]

I think The Onion had the wrong person.

[…]

Hey skank, half the country hates you. Go away. Tired of having to windex my TV everytime you muck it up.

[…]

Dr. Zira presented last night?

[…]

My proud ownership of male genitalia precludes the possibility of viewing Hollywood self-adorations. Apparently, this policy has spared me a di**-shrivelling moment.

[…]

Was there a tribute to Star Wars that I missed?

[…]

“All this for a flag?” -Mooch Obama

[…]

As happy as seeing Barak Obama murdered would make me, I think Id be happier if someone put a bullet in that fat pig of a wife.

UPDATE at 2/25/13 12:29:44 pm

That last comment above has now been deleted at Hot Air, and the rest of the commenters are accusing me of faking it (predictably) and spewing hatred at me.

That quote was nowhere to be found on Hot Air until you posted it now.

You and Charles Johnson are dirty liars.

[…]

I just went on LGF and planted an a$sassination remark about Ted Cruz. Hurry, Allah, and link it to smear them before they take it down.

[…]

Charles Johnson, the ‘upstanding’ reporter that he is, will print and Update to his post that Allahpundit deleted the offending commenter…in 3, 2……..yeppers.

Latrine rats, eat the slush you dwell in.

[…]

Charles Johnson got his first, of what would be, chronic yeast infections.

[…]

Googling this Machismo fellow’s previous Hot Air comments makes me think he was really a Kos Kiddie posing as a conservative. His comments were all incredibly over-the-top, like a caricature of a parody of a conservative.

Gotta love their logic:

I don’t know much about uniforms, but they look kind of military to me. If that’s the case, what kind of event was going on at the White House that night? The President’s schedule doesn’t include any mention of a formal event at the White House.

Whoa, I just finally realized this.

The reason those dimwitted oafs think appending ‘TGDN’ to their tweets will protect them from censorship is because this is exactly the sort of fake half-security measure implemented on Fox Nation. Add an umlaut to your Wookie and you’re in the clear; they can’t or won’t touch you.

Randy Thomasson: Gay Rights Ushering in Civil War

Save California’s Randy Thomason on Friday appeared on Istook Live, the Heritage Foundation radio program hosted by former Republican congressman Ernest Istook, to discuss the Supreme Court case on Proposition 8.

He accused the California state officials who refused to defend Prop 8 of “dissing God” and went on to warn that “usurpers of the United States Constitution” have methodically and stealthily “infiltrated” the government and the courts in order to launch another civil war.

Because it went so well for the assholes the first go around.

Regardless of how you feel about the man’s politics, he seems to be a genuine example of a person who truly does love his wife (and has never cheated on her) and loves his kids.

Jenn Rubin:

It is not enough that President Obama pops up at every sporting event in the nation. Now the first lady feels entitled, with military personnel as props, to intrude on other forms of entertaining (this time for the benefit of the Hollywood glitterati who so lavishly paid for her husband’s election). I’m sure the left will holler that once again conservatives are being grouchy and have it in for the Obamas. Seriously, if they really had their president’s interests at heart, they’d steer away from encouraging these celebrity appearances. It makes both the president and the first lady seem small and grasping. In this case, it was just downright weird.

Robertson: Worth Praying Over Clothes to Rebuke Demons

Today on the 700 Club, televangelist Pat Robertson said that demons can attach themselves to material goods and therefore it’s not a bad idea to rebuke them before bringing them into your home.

After a viewer, Carrie, asked whether to follow her mom’s recommendation to pray away demonic spirits over her secondhand sweaters, Robertson recounted a story about “a witch who had prayed over a particular ring and asked for a spirit to come into it, and this Philippine girl was so attached to this ring, she had to buy it and all hell broke loose because she finally recognized what it was.”

“Can demonic spirits attach themselves to inanimate objects, the answer is yes,” Robertson said.

Get the fuck out of my century.

And here she is continuing to display her disregard for the troops, as suggested by RW-pundits like Jennifer Rubin (/////):

[Link: news.yahoo.com…]

WASHINGTON (AP) — First lady Michelle Obama on Monday challenged governors to make it easier for military personnel to transfer their skills to civilian jobs as they return home from Afghanistan and other far-flung posts.

“While this time of war may be ending, the truth is our responsibility to our troops and their families will really just be ramping up,” Mrs. Obama told governors during an event at the White House.

Mrs. Obama pressed states to pass legislation or take executive action by 2015 allowing veterans to receive professional credentials or licenses based on their experiences in the military. Administration officials said that would allow veterans to apply for jobs more quickly rather than having to take courses for skills they already have.

The nation’s governors are in Washington for their annual meeting.

The veterans’ initiatives are part of Mrs. Obama’s “Joining Forces” program, which aims to help veterans and their families. The program has focused in particular on assisting military personnel find civilian jobs, an effort that is expected to take on more urgency as the Afghan war comes to a close by the end of next year.

The first lady wants states to focus in particular on making it easier for veterans to obtain credentials and licenses for commercial driving, nursing, and emergency medical services, administration officials said. The White House has outlined suggested legislative language states can use for implementing the changes.

Mrs. Obama has previously called on states to help military spouses transfer their state-specific credentials when their families move due to changes in deployment. Seventeen states have passed such legislation over the past year, joining 11 states that already had laws on the books.

Never underestimate the ability of people to fail upward in this country. In my years of doing both government and private regulatory work, it’s always best to ask for help from those below you, because those above usually don’t have the first f’ing clue what’s going on.

Liberty Counsel To Gay Teens: You’re Depressed Because You’re Sinners

The Liberty Counsel’s Matt Barber has penned a letter to gay teens — which he condescendingly qualifies as “gay” teens — that confirms the clear animus he and his fellow conservatives have for LGBT people. His outright condemnation that homosexuals are sinner going directly to Hell is offensive enough, but worse yet, he suggests that gay teens are not depressed because of the homophobia they experience, but merely because they’re sinners:

Yeah, its totally because they’re sinners, and not because friends and family heap abuse on them because of their sexuality.

Texas lawmaker wants to arrest police for enforcing gun control laws

A Texas state representative says that a bill banning the enforcement of any new gun control laws is constitutional because it would only prosecute police and other state officials.

Fox News guest host Peter Johnson Jr. on Monday asked state Rep. Steve Toth (R) why his bill to moot any new federal assault weapons ban would not violate the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution, which says that state laws are trumped by federal laws.

“This is not a nullification bill,” Toth insisted. “We target a very specific portion of where the Obama administration’s proposed legislation is infringing on our Second Amendment rights, and it only deals with those two things. For example, the size of a magazine and the type of weapon. We’re very specific about it, and we’re not going after federal officials. We’re simply saying state officials within the state of Texas are are not allowed to violate our Second Amendment as it pertains to these two things.”

I’m getting to the point I would support arresting obstructionist politicians.

re: #142 FemNaziBitch

Short story is that the Afghan government has called for the end of special forces operations in a province, claiming that there have been extrajudicial activities including torture, detentions, and murders by members of the US special forces there. The US military denies, and the ISAF is also investigating the claims.

Is it possible that the accusations are true? Yes.
Is it also possible that the murders were carried out by insurgents/Taliban? Yes.

Longer story:

In a statement Sunday, a spokesman for Karzai said, “after a thorough discussion, it became clear that armed individuals named as U.S. special force stationed in Wardak province engage in harassing, annoying, torturing and even murdering innocent people.”

Karzai’s office cited a “recent example” in which nine people allegedly “disappeared” and a separate incident where a student was taken from his home in the middle of the night and whose tortured body was found two days later under a bridge with his throat cut.

U.S. defense officials strongly deny that military personnel condoned, or were involved in, any kidnappings, torture or murders of Afghan civilians or suspects.

In addition to demanding the U.S. pull out in two weeks, Karzai also demanded the immediate cessation of all international special forces operations in Wardak.

Trent Reznor Announces the Return of Nine Inch Nails: Extensive Touring for 2013 and 2014
“The band is reinventing itself from scratch”

It’s been four years since Nine Inch Nails’ “Wave Goodbye” tour heralded the end of an era for Trent Reznor’s pioneering project. But since that time, Reznor has maintained that NIN wasn’t over forever, just changing focus.

Now, Reznor has announced that Nine Inch Nails will return to action in a big way in 2013. Tours are planned for this summer and fall, all the way into next year. The lineup will include Reznor, Eric Avery of Jane’s Addiction, Adrian Belew of King Crimson, and Josh Eustis of Telefon Tel Aviv, as well as previous NIN collaborators Alessandro Cortini and Ilan Rubin.

That is just one hell of a lineup Reznor has assembled there.

Fischer Declares That Robert Jeffress Is Now ‘the Most Important Man in America’

After Tim Tebow canceled his scheduled speaking engagement at Robert Jeffress’ church last week, Bryan Fischer lashed out at the “bigoted bullies at Big Gay” who were supposedly responsible for pressuring Tebow into backing down.

Jeffress’ addressed the controversy in a defiant sermon on Sunday that apparently send a thrill up Fischer’s spine, as he played a lengthy excerpt from it on his radio program today … but not before declaring that Jeffress is now “the most important man in America” and predicting that the Tebow controversy represents a “turning point in the culture war; we perhaps have bottomed out and with Dr. Jeffress taking such a strong and unapologetic stand for the truth, maybe we are beginning now to climb out of the abyss”:

Buzzfeed has a brief write-up on some of the previous appearances by Presidents & FLOTUSes at the Oscars:

[Link: www.buzzfeed.com…]

FDR gave a six-minute radio address from the White House during the 13th Academy Awards, in which he paid tribute to Hollywood’s stars, directors, and producers.

President Ronald Reagan made a video cameo at the 53rd Academy Awards in 1980.

First Lady Laura Bush appeared at the 74th Annual Academy Awards in 2002. She participated in a taped segment.

Michelle’s appearance was nothing new, but people still freaked out, calling it “inappropriate.”

North Carolina once again shows that it is having trouble finding its way out of the 19th Century.

College Rape Survivor Faces Potential Expulsion For ‘Intimidating’ Her Rapist

Last month, former University of North Carolina assistant dean of students Melinda Manning, three students and one former student filed a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights on behalf of themselves and 64 other unnamed sexual assault survivors, alleging that university officials pressured Manning into underreporting cases and violated the Campus Sexual Assault Victims’ Bill of Rights, the Clery Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and equal opportunity mandates under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Now sophomore Landen Gambill, one of the students named in the case, says she’s being punished by the Office of Student Conduct for “intimidating” her rapist by speaking to the press about her sexual assault.

It is worth noting that she has not publicly named the person who assaulted her - however that hasn’t stopped the university from going forward with their threats:

If UNC’s Honor Court finds that Landen had indeed “intimidated” her rapist and “adversely” affected his life she could be subject to the following sanctions:

Expulsion (precludes matriculation at any UNC constituent institution)

Permanent Suspension

Definite or Indefinite Suspension

Definite or Indefinite Probation

Written Warning

Grade Penalty

Educational Assignment

Conduct Sanctions (such as community service and restitution)

Loss of Privileges

Landen said that she attended a preliminary Honor Court meeting and asked whether she could have violated the Honor Code simply by saying she was raped; the answer was yes.

“This type of gross injustice is the reason why UNC students are speaking out and demanding answers,” Landen told us. “The reason why I’m so vocal about this isn’t because I just want justice for my case. I want to make sure no one else has to go through this if they want to report an assault to the university.”

Drudge is busy bitching simultaneously that the feds are selling another percentage stake in GM and then complaining that Government Motors is contemplating giving the guys in charge a raise.

GM is expected to be a money-loser for TARP, but the other portions have made money for the feds - primarily the bank bailouts in interest payments.

The feds could make a profit if the stock rose to about $70, but that kind of valuation isn’t likely anytime soon with it trading around $26.

Dobson’s book Fatherless, on the other hand, weaves a fiction about a reporter in the year 2042 who’s faced with a world full of younger people who simply do not want to have children, leaving the old to vastly outnumber the young, resulting in the popularization of euthanasia for elderly people.

“We’re not only talking about abortion, we’re talking about infanticide,” the 76 year old told Beck. “We’re talking about euthanasia. And all of that is becoming acceptable. We’re going to redefine life, and that’s what we talk about in this book.”

Yeah, because humanity is in danger because people don’t want kids anymore.
