Daily Caller Cooks Up Another Stupid Scandal, Commenters Spew Vile Racism

“Umbrellagate?” Are they serious?

The mind-numbingly stupid right wing fake outrage of the day: yes, now they’re even going after the President for asking Marines to hold umbrellas for himself and the Turkish Prime Minister. I just can’t even.

The hacks at wingnut propaganda site The Daily Caller lead the charge, but it’s on every single right wing blog and media website, of course, because they do this stuff in lockstep unison like good little authoritarians: Obama Breaches Marine Umbrella Protocol | the Daily Caller.

Did Obama “breach protocol?” Let’s see what the Marine Corps has to say about it:

Seeing a Marine with this particular accessory is “extremely rare,” Marine Corps spokesman Capt. Greg Wolf explained, but because the president’s the commander in chief of the Armed Forces, if he says “hold my umbrella,” it’s permissible.

The sad thing is that this laughable story actually ended up on the front pages of the New York Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Washington Times and the Los Angeles Times.

This is why the wingnut lockstep army does this kind of freakishly moronic outrage-mongering — because the mainstream media enables it.

Meanwhile, again as usual, the commenters for the Daily Caller’s rage-inducing article are, yes, spewing all kinds of vile racism. They got the subtext right away — it’s a white man holding an umbrella for a black President.

I thought afro-sheen was waterproof?

[…]

Just another occasion where Obama shows his “superiority” to any and everyone around him. Shameful.

[…]

Just another example of the illegitimate Kenyan illegal alien’s arrogance, ignorance, and contempt for the military - and the Marine Corps in particular.

[…]

Next they’ll be carrying shopping bags for Michelle as she strolls ‘Miracle Mile’ looking for a bargain.

[…]

I would roll that umbrella up and shove it where the sun don’t shine. Kenyan Fraud. III%

[…]

The MONKEY BOY BATH HOUSE QUEEN WOULD MELT if SHE GOT WET!!!!!

[…]

Too funny! The first black man given the opportunity to run the most powerful country on earth and he turns out to be no different than all the other two bit corrupt black dictators around the world. For all the world to see no less. Way to go BO!

[…]

Someone…please throw some shoes at this Kenyan clown!!

On and on it goes — currently there are more than 1700 comments, almost all spewing hatred and deranged conspiracy theories. The right wing base in all its glory.
