The not-so-casual bigotry of the Left [Darleen Click]

Sometimes, I cannot avoid certain sections of the Los Angeles Slimes

David Horsey replaced the token conservative, Andrew Malcolm, on LAT’s “Top of the Ticket” column and has been spewing anti-conservative hate and mockery ever since. He eagerly seized on the Minority babies story, something that Left-liberals have gleefully made a story over their own perceptions of how conservatives will react.

Pudgy, pink Gerber babies are no longer the typical child being born in the United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, moms who are Latino, Asian, African American or mixed race are now giving birth to just over 50% of American babies. […]

When they grow up, all these little brown babies will be working hard to pay for the Medicare and Social Security benefits of a whole lot of old white people like me. […]

It is inevitable that America will change. That bothers some folks, I know, but it can be a dramatic change for the better if only we pull our heads out of the sand, stop clinging to outmoded definitions of “real Americans” and do the necessary work to bring all these new babies into the great American family.

David, of course, purposefully ignores that the majority all those “brown” babies — Hispanics/Latinos — self-identify as “white”.

“Real” Americans have little to do with the racial balkanization lionized by Left-liberals, but with American principles and values. If those babies are raised American then they will be American in the most important, and only sense, of what our Founders put together.

But hey, broad-brushing the American heartland as peopled with stoopid rednecks and hicks — people who still actually believe in liberty and charity — then one can mock the values they hold by association.

  1. I guess the Dems have written off South Dakota.

  2. Imagine if you changed that around … This is overt bigotry.

  3. she’s been eating carbs

  4. If she cut down on the Big Macs for a while, they’d look exactly like a Williamsburg, Brooklyn couple.

  5. I do notice a certain cruel logical inconsistency in the Left pushing this news.

    On the one hand, they cite events such as these and interpret them to mean “it’s all over for you, white devils, wait until the brown children grow up and give you payback.”

    OK, well and fine, I suppose, but in the very next breath they criticize the white devils for opposing the tacit open immigration policies of their government (contrary to the written law) as “racist” and “xenophobic.”

  6. But hey, broad-brushing the American heartland as peopled with stoopid rednecks and hicks — people who still actually believe in liberty and charity — then one can mock the values they hold by association.

    Not all them phat bitches be fat! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82dDnv9zeLs

  7. The cartoon gal is curvy. I wouldn’t expect a denizen of Los Anorexia to appreciate that.

  8. Meme-pushing or no, there are a much larger number of white folks in the USA, as the media will be sure to point out when they harp on the fact that there are more white devils on public assistance. You can’t have it both ways, other than both ways are to point out that white people are the suxxor. Except lefties.

    That cartoon looks like an illustration of the people I see at the autions and rodeos. Although most of the girls around here don’t wear belly-shirts. It’s also an exercise in subltety since there are no helpful arrows pointing out that those two are probably related. /sarcasm

  9. green jobs lol

    A move designed to punish Chinese solar panel makers that charge unfairly low prices in the United States could, ironically, end up hurting American-based solar panel installers, a fast-growing sector of the green economy.

  10. I guess the next thing after publishing a cartoon like that is wondering why so much of the south is turning Red and why they hold DC in such contempt.

    Deliverance is a funny movie. See, it’s basically one of those deadly African jungle movies where some bone wearing, stone age, cannibal tribe wants to boil you in their big cast iron pot that they somehow manufactured despite all their heathen primitiveness. The twist is that they set it in Georgia where some guys from Atlanta find out that rednecks live without law, are retarded, and will rape and kill strangers for no reason. Of course this kind of “exists to be villains” crap is just as silly in northern Georgia as it is in some random African Jungle. The joke of the movie was was to claim that we can have deadly off the map adventures right here in the US.

    You can tell that it’s urban legend/adventure movie bullshit because in reality the movie makers had no fear to go up there with a cast and FILM A MOVIE there and received nothing but cooperation. That’s how dangerous it REALLY was off the map in North Georgia.

    But somehow the premise of Deliverance became “true ” in the eyes of those who saw the movie and weren’t smart enough to realize that it’s a movie. It became a trope in central casting. It became a major element of portrayals of the south. And they tried it in the west too. We got to see “The Hills Have Eyes”. So now rednecks are the new chanting dancing spear throwing jungle cannibals in the minds of the popular culture. They are toothless, devolved, blithering, ugly, out of style mutants.

    Now city mouse half believes that his country cousin wants to rape him, and maybe eat him like in Chainsaw massacre. The city is now the good safe place where the decent people live. Except when you open the paper.

    So City mouse wants to make Country mouse the scapegoat for all his arrogance and failure and doesn’t want Country mouse to breed or prosper or make any decisions about what the future holds. And even the large prospering cities in the South are suspect to the costal types. So we get cartoons like this. Then, the cartoonist has the chutzpah to wonder why the South dislikes him, votes against his ideas, and argues with his assumptions. “Well fuck ‘em if they can’t take a joke” he says.

  11. Why do a couple of kids ostensibly from South Dakota look like refugees from Appalachia?

  12. jdw I remember the day that drunken suburban wannabe gangsta jumped up on stage and started talking smack about how some sister should have won Swift’s award. I had this momentary fantasy that Taylor would sweetly take the mike back, “accidentally” step on his foot, and then nail him in the chest with all 90 pounds of her bad self, knocking him onto the 1st row and closing with “get off my stage, bitch”.

  13. This sort of cartoonish stuff is bad for the soul, even when only glancingly encountered I think.

    But, it’s May 21st today and the Supreme Court of the United States will be issuing a decision — one way or the other — on the hated ObamaCare law within about a month, give or take a few days. Could prove to be a very good thing. Like make for less misery.

  14. We just need to remind ourselves that we’re dealing with a quality of mind that sends academics on a mission to lynch the author of a blog post which belittles Black Studies as a serious academic discipline, and then the next week this same website posts an article which kind of praises The Unabomber.

  15. Note that when someone like Horsey wants to mock white folks, he never depicts anyone who looks like himself.

  16. Cartoonish “thinking” from a cartoonish mind.

  17. A good columnist doesn’t need to illustrate his columns. A good cartoonist doesn’t need a column to explain his cartoon.

  18. You could just as easily do a cartoon depicting a painfully thin, blue-state urban chic couple standing around at some cocktail party and bitching that if redstaters didn’t have so many baby’s, the Democrats wouldn’t have to import voters from Central America to remain competitive electorally.

  19. Casual beauty: The Banjo — L. M. Gottschalk

  20. via Powerline: James Ceaser, Claremont Review of Books, Restoring the Constitution

    His close:

    ” […] There is an obvious reason why liberals have sought to erase the concept of political constitutionalism from our collective memory. It is that the actual Constitution stands as an impediment to liberal political theory and political ambition. Ask liberals what they want from government and they will readily admit to the following two propositions: (1) that the federal government should possess any power that the majority believes operates for the public good; and (2) that the public good is promoted by enacting a set of new economic and social rights said to be fundamental to human beings in a modern society. Whether this theory of government is good or bad, it is not constitutional, a point that Progressives themselves originally emphasized at the beginning of the 20th century. The leading Progressive thinkers at that time launched an open assault on the Constitution, arguing that the powers given to the national government were inadequate to meet the needs of a modern society and that the structural division of authority among our institutions made effective administration impossible. (If anything, Progressive theorists probably exaggerated the constitutional impediments to federal power, preferring to make the Constitution look like a far more laissez-faire document than it was, in order to discredit it.) The Progressives favored a “living constitution,” which in their account was said to be wholly at odds with the actual Constitution.

    This open attack on the Constitution failed to win the support of the American people. Grasping this error, the liberal heirs of the Progressives changed tactics, replacing frankness with stealth. Instead of opposing the living constitution to the actual Constitution, they decided to bring the living constitution, like a Trojan Horse, inside the Constitution. At first the doctrine of the living constitution was interpreted to mean that the Supreme Court should step aside and allow the political branches of the federal government to do their will; later, with a transformation of legal philosophy to embrace progressive ideas and a more friendly Court, the doctrine was conveniently amended to allow judges to enact parts of the living constitution that legislatures were too timid to pass. Finally, to assuage the misgivings of some who fretted about the intellectual integrity of a process of judicial interpretation that counseled ignoring the actual text of the Constitution, liberals announced that none of this mattered anyhow. The Constitution, they declared, could be effectively altered by what the public decided in a critical election: the people spoke in 1936 against the written Constitution, settling this issue for all time.

    These arguments of distortion and evasion worked for a generation. Ignoring our Constitution became our constitution. Now that we face a new crisis created by undisciplined government, the moment is ripe for a revival of political constitutionalism. Without it, we shall soon be a constitutional people in name only. “

  21. *all these little brown babies will be working hard to pay for the Medicare and Social Security benefits of a whole lot of old white people like me. *

    uh, yeah, not if past performance by their parents is anything to go by in terms of predicting future results. We’ll add to the wellfare rolls and the uninsured. Diversity rules!

  22. here is what failshit California is worrying about as it swirls down the shitter

    Lieu said dispatching dogs to chase a bear into a tree where the hunter can get a clear shot of the animal “violates the principals of fair chase.” (sic)

  23. Jonah Golderg on the same subject as Ceaser:

    [T]he “living Constitution” is a quintessential tyrannical cliché precisely because the bad faith of its adherents is so glaring. [T]he original progressives … at least … were honest about what they were after. Today’s living constitutionalists insist that their project has a rich and serious intellectual lineage, but don’t you dare write or say anything that suggests that its intellectual history is actually relevant. They want to claim all of the authority of an intellectual tradition without having to defend or even acknowledge that tradition’s roots in Darwinism, Hegelianism, and various efforts to make Lady Justice look like Robocop with a garden rake.

    Meanwhile, the very same living constitutionalists are the first to hide behind old Lady Justice’s skirts and invoke the original intenet of the Founding Fathers as soon as it becomes advantageous. [….]
    [….]
    In short, the living constitutionalists want a monopoly on what the Constitution means. It is a golden goose for progressives, an unalterably sacred text for everyone else.
    (Tyranny of Clichés, 167-8, 70)

    It’s good to be the (Priest-)King.

  24. The fox, the puma and the boar agree with Lieu.

  25. See, it’s basically one of those deadly African jungle movies where some bone wearing, stone age, cannibal tribe wants to boil you in their big cast iron pot

    It’s worse now, leigh. Now Georgia just quietly inserts flesh-eating bacteria in city folk’s open wounds.

    Still awaiting the new banjo ditty accompaniment, and for Burt Reynolds to arrive with a fully-strung vial and 12-gauge IV needle.

  26. The best deadly African jungle movie, inspired by American folklore, to ever be made.

  27. Link is frelled up, Ernst

  28. The progressives argue with the cartoon characters in their head, and lose anyway.

  29. I’m fond of this one as well, the true story of which is much more interesting than the true story behind this movie.

  30. That what I get for copying links from google:

    The Naked Prey
    Shout at the Devil
    The Ghost and the Darkness

    in that order

  31. “The Naked Prey” was *awesome*!!!

  32. Four more deadly african jungle movies.

    Sorry, no jungle.

  33. Of course the deadliest deadly african jungle movie of all wasn’t set in either Africa or the jungle.

  34. India can be pretty deadly too, you know.

  35. she needs to work that belly fat

  36. You could just as easily do a cartoon depicting a painfully thin, blue-state urban chic couple standing around at some cocktail party and bitching that if redstaters didn’t have so many babies, the Democrats wouldn’t have to import voters from Central America to remain competitive electorally.

    Have you never watched the first five minutes of Idiocracy?

  37. In other news , Trayvon’s mother is introduced as the mother of the New Civil Rights Movement.

    “It’s so easy for me to cry everyday but I can’t. I’ve got work to do,” Sabrina Fulton said. Martin’s mother was overwhelmed by support from Empowerment Temple AME Church.

  38. Never Squid.

    And I hope the New Civil Rights Movement treats Sabrina Fulton better than the New Peace Movement treated Cindy Sheehan.

  39. Cash for Trayvon(‘s Mother)!!

  40. Someone is misspelling her name. She was Sybrina or Sabryna a few months ago.

    Cindy Sheehan had a long ride on the corpse of her soldier son. She didn’t realize and likely still doesn’t that she was just a tool. A cog. A brick in the wall.

  41. Civil rights now means black people can do whatever they want to and everyone else has to take it, I guess.

    Take your beatings like good, contrite crackers.

  42. I’m far more amused than outraged with Cali morons. Here’s a chart. Here’s another.

    I’m sure somewhere in Greece an impotent loser is saying something nasty about a German right now, too. Who gives a shit?

  43. I think “some folks” is CODE for “slope-headed, cross-burnin’ cracker motherfuckers”…

  44. So Brown’s estimate of tax collections was low. I guess he forgot to include the loss of revenue from businesses and people fleeing the state because of politicians like him.

  45. I’ve been laughing at the spin that Obama got Merkel to “agree” to his proposal of stimulus spending, rather than cut off their allowance. I’ve read all the reports I could find (easily) and nowhere do I find Angela (Oh, and Buh-rock? It’s Ahn-gela with a hard g) Merkel saying, “Yeah, sure. I’ll write the check myself.”

  46. I reckon those yucky heartland white folks in the cartoon are products of the public education system. Just sayin’.
