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

Extremely twitchy

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.

Romney Retreats to Multi-Million Dollar Mansion to Mourn His Loss

“Who will make my peanut butter sandwiches now? Oh yeah, the maid.”
Politics • Views: 23,420

There is no joy in Mitt Romney’s multi-million dollar mansion on the beach at La Jolla: A Detached Romney Tends Wounds in Seclusion After Failed White House Bid.

SAN DIEGO — The man who planned to be president wakes up each morning now without a plan.

In other words, exactly what he would have been doing as President.

Mitt Romney looks out the windows of his beach house here in La Jolla, a moneyed and pristine enclave of San Diego, at noisy construction workers fixing up his next-door neighbor’s home, sending out regular updates on the renovation. He devours news from 2,600 miles away in Washington about the “fiscal cliff” negotiations, shaking his head and wondering what if.

Gone are the minute-by-minute schedules and the swarm of Secret Service agents. There’s no aide to make his peanut-butter-and-honey sandwiches.

Can’t you feel his pain? No aides to make his peanut butter sandwiches. He’ll just have to settle for having one of the wait staff do it.

It’s not what Romney imagined he would be doing as the new year approaches.

Key word in this sentence: “imagined.”

The defeated Republican nominee has practically disappeared from public view since his loss, exhibiting the same detachment that made it so difficult for him to connect with the body politic through six years of running for president. He has made no public comments since his concession speech in the early hours of Nov. 7 and avoided the press last week during a private lunch with President Obama at the White House. Through an aide, Romney declined an interview request for this story.

After Romney told his wealthy donors that he blamed his loss on “gifts” Obama gave to minority groups, his functionaries were unrepentant and Republican luminaries effectively cast him out. Few of the policy ideas he promoted are even being discussed in Washington.

Which ought to give people a clue about how serious his “policy ideas” were in the first place.

As hard as this has been on the multi-millionaire, it’s even harder on his wife Ann. Not even her stable of horses can bring her solace, as she weeps in private.

By all accounts, the past month has been most difficult on Romney’s wife, Ann, who friends said believed up until the end that ascending to the White House was their destiny. They said she has been crying in private and trying to get back to riding her horses.

And the bitterness and anger at the 47% is never far below the surface.

In private, Romney has told friends he has little interest in helping the Republican Party rebuild and re-brand itself.

Advisers also said he felt no need to explain himself after his comments to donors about Obama using the power of incumbency to give ‘gifts’ to female, black and Latino voters leaked into the public sphere. One adviser said Romney regretted the remarks ‘coming out the way it did.’ Fehrnstrom, meanwhile, said, ‘He was expressing the frustration that any challenger would feel about an incumbent who used the powers of his incumbency ’ as we would have if the shoe was on the other foot.’
