The inauthentic children of Republicans [Darleen Click]

The attacks on Trig Palin were legion. The Bush twins were gossip and mocking fodder in ways Heiress Clinton never was.

Just as women, minorities and gays who identify as Republicans or Conservatives somehow stop being real, so even their children stop being, well, children.

On MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry on Sunday, the panel was discussing several topics of the “of the year” variety. In the below clip, panelists are shown photos ‘of the year” and asked to offer humorous captions. Host Harris-Perry shows a Romney family photo that includes his adopted grandchild, who happens to be black, and this is the reaction [...]

The panelists start laughing the moment the photo is on the screen, because obviously. Then the first response is Pia Glenn off-camera sing-songing “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same” and the rest of the panel chuckles along. It’s funny because Romney is white and his grandson isn’t, which is obviously hilarious. Because as everyone knows, the races should not mix. [...]

He’s not a child adopted by loving parents prepared to provide him with a better life in keeping with the family’s values. Nope. He’s just a token. A punchline, not a person. But it’s funny, because Republicans are racist, see? So it’s all fine!

  1. - This is what you get, nervous lying en-grope head explosions whenever the Left encounters truths they just can’t process.

  2. That’s not at all a nice way to talk about a little baby.

  3. “one of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same”

    - One of these things is a child of color that is an embarrassment to the Lefts narrative, so they have to pretend its something to snicker at, desperately so.

    - Besides being as wrong as its possible to be these people are dispicable embarrassments to the human race.

  4. Does Miss Harris-Perry hate her white relatives?

    She really has issues or is flat out evil/psychotic.

  5. Casual liberal racism casually on display?

    well knock me over with a feather!

  6. - The usual formula for Bumblefuck officials careers:

    - Get appointed (usually with racial overtones).

    - Fail miserably in ever aspect of the assigned task.

    - Get some sort of award for phantom excellance.

    - Retire or resign to a cushy private industry job, which ever can be pulled off the easiest not requiring any admission of wrong doing, as long as they can take the money and run.

    Forward.

  7. I bet Romney doesn’t even know that kid is black.

    That’s how white Mitt is.

  8. - Now that the Left has firmly established its H8T and intolorance for DD they should attach to the T Party and piss on the Left every chance they get, perferably with Palins help.

    - In other “Not” news but TMI:

    - Is there some fucking way we could make it clear to the Left and the LGBT crowd that we don’t need to know their sexual preferences, because we really really really don’t.

  9. - The Lefts dog whistles are starting to cross fire and drown each other out these days….Its getting so confusing and hard to know who to pander to anymore.

    - Kissing the ass of a demographic thats certainly less than 3% of the electorate probably isn’t a winning formula if the Lefturds aren’t interested in backing the play book anumore.

  10. From “the love that dare not speak its name” to “the love that won’t stfu” in just a few short years, BBH.

  11. Thought experiment: A group of conservatives look at a picture of a homosexual couple that adopted a heterosexual child and make similar remarks. What happens next?

  12. I can’t be certain, but it will involve rainbow flags and indignation.

  13. here is a new singing from Mr. brantley gilbert

    he’s white

    not unlike your typical member of the romney family

  14. Those people are sick. Truly sick.

    See, if those pasty progressive folks did adopt a child who happens to be black, it would only be to prove their lack of racism. It would have nothing to do with wanting another child.

    I don’t like Romney as a politician, but I don’t think Romney the man or his progeny are likely to be bad people. On the contrary, it’s much more likely they are much better people than their detractors.

    BTW, I’m reading “Black Rednecks and White Liberals” at the moment, and it is certainly an eye-opener. Basically, everything progressives have done to “help” black folk has harmed them. It’s one thing to know that in the abstract, and another to see examples of failure over and over again .

  15. It’s fascinating how quickly it becomes obvious some people simply have no souls.

  16. Basically, everything progressives have done to “help” black folk has harmed them.

    - Apparently sometime after 88 BC the old adage “theres no benefit to robbing a man of his individualism and dignity” got lost, but with Progressives its invisable like WMD’s and their own self-h8ty racism.

  17. >“Black Rednecks and White Liberals” at the moment, and it is certainly an eye-opener. <

    it is

  18. They really don’t. Trying to talk to them as if they were adults is about as productive as nailing Jello to a wall. They can’t argue logically.

    At all.

  19. But it’s funny, because Republicans are racist, see? So it’s all fine!

    Actually, I’m quite surprised that the allegations of “child abuse” haven’t risen up yet – based on the failing to raise said grandchild in a proper “authentic culture”.

  20. I guess only Madonna, Sandra Bullock, Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie can raise a black child authentically in their various homes, apartments and chateaus around the globe.

  21. Clearly, he should have been aborted. Hail Moloch!

  22. -….and speaking of criminals down under, would this be listed under fire sale?

  23. “Kissing the ass of a demographic thats certainly less than 3% of the electorate probably isn’t a winning formula if the Lefturds aren’t interested in backing the play book anumore.”

    I’m working from the premise these days that 3% figure is way low. Well, it may well be that 3% are born full on homosexual with no physical attraction for the opposite sex, but I am coming to believe a healthy majority of progressives are so amoral they are functionally bi-sexual. They wanna get their rocks off, anyone will do. In a pinch, a Dalmatian would be fine, ain’t no big deal.

  24. They can’t argue logically.

    They can’t even argue emotionally, except to demonstrate that they have the souls of jackals.

    The only proper response to that photo was “Awww! Cute! Nice to see racial acceptance in public.”

    PERIOD

  25. madonna’s super cool she’s got not one but two negritudinous progenies

    she’s a very responsible person is why they let her do that

    cause of she’s got her act together

    and Angelina Jolie kicks ass enough to where her dirty hippie fiance can be a self-styled muy importante artsy fartsy pussy and no one’s the worse for it

    and Sandra Bullock has nice teeth

  26. oh my the 80 lowers arrived today. on to harbor freight for the milling.

  27. So “nice teeth” is enough for Sandra Bullock, but it just proves Romney’s racism, in the world according to Durp.

    Because famous people make better parents, I guess.

    I’ll wait for that one to sink in…

  28. One of my brothers was engaged to one of Joan Crawford’s granddaughters (it didn’t work out) and being rich and famous does not a great parent make.

    Y’all have seen the movie.

  29. she’s a very responsible person is why they let her do that

    cause of she’s got her act together

    I hope for your sake you were trying to be facetious.

  30. I’ve never been more serious about anything in my life

  31. no big demand for adoption of black children in the black community in amerikkka? those single moms are busy.

  32. nespresso serious

  33. I’m reading “Black Rednecks and White Liberals” at the moment, and it is certainly an eye-opener.

    Great book.

    Basically, everything progressives have done to “help” black folk has harmed them. It’s one thing to know that in the abstract, and another to see examples of failure over and over again .

    “It is no accident” as they themselves were wont to say.

  34. I’ve never been more serious about anything in my life

    If so, that is at once both sad and frightening.

  35. Not frightening, just sad.

    (That will be the headline of pikachu’s obit…”

  36. Fundamental Unseriousness is one of the longstanding charges against Jeff’s blog that gets mocked routinely.

    Happyfeet sticks around so Jeff’s detractors have something to point at.

  37. This once again illustrates who the true racists are in this society.

  38. Supporting the gay agenda is not about making Dems look good but, making Republicans/conservatives look bad.

  39. the gay/feminist/black/proggtard agenda is undermining traditional american society. see: cyrus,miley.

  40. and the elitest rinos are ok with that. if we had an oppositional party in america to the present ruining class they would be exposing the knock out game for what it really is : the demonrats’ new black kkk.

  41. “Supporting the gay agenda is not about making Dems look good but, making Republicans/conservatives look bad.”

    Yes and no. Supporting the gay agenda makes proggs feel good with a morality greater than that of Christians. That this strategy makes the religious right look morally stunted is a feature.

  42. On ABC tomorrow night as she twerks in the new year?

    Funny what does and does not get you kicked off of suspended from of TV

    Objection: “Awww! Cute!” is sufficient. ;-D

  44. >h/t Mark Levin<

    ruining class gots to ruin

  45. >suspended from of TV<

    ask phil?

  46. We can only that they are making a fundamental error. Just because liberals are dumb enough to vote for anyone with a D next to their name, does not mean conservative are dumb enough to vote for just anyone with an “R” next to theirs.

  47. “reverend white” is mr. black kkk. same with sharpton, jackson and farakhan. with some jew bashing for flavour.

  48. >We can only that they are making a fundamental error <

    nah in woody wilson's time attack the blacks/huns et al in baracky's time attack the white/jew et al. same proggtarded playbook.

  49. Just because liberals are dumb enough to vote for anyone with a D next to their name, does not mean conservative are dumb enough to vote for just anyone with an “R” next to theirs.

    I think they know that, even if the Republicans don’t, and that they’re counting on exactly that.

    A lot of “moderate” Republicans are going to get beat, and the GOP will conclude they didn’t moderate enough.

    In the meantime, welcome back Speaker Pelosi.

    That’s my prediction for 2014.

  50. From dicentra’s 9:13.

    The super PAC, called Defending Main Street, has not yet submitted a major donor disclosure to the Federal Election Commission. But documents filed by other groups show that two labor organizations, the International Union of Operating Engineers and the Laborers’ International Union of North America, directed a combined $400,000 to the Republican group in September and October.

    Nice partners there.

    The United States Attorney’s Office announced today that three members of Local 17 of the International Union of Operating Engineers pleaded guilty before United States District Judge William M. Skretny to violations of the federal Hobbs Act Extortion statute and agreed to testify in the upcoming trial of their seven co-defendants.

    Pleading guilty were:

    Carl A. Larson, 50, of Boston, New York; Larson formerly worked as an organizer for Local 17

    Michael Eddy, 44, of Gowanda, New York, a member of Local 17

    George DeWald, 50, of Springville, New York; a member of Local 17.

    Each defendant faces a sentence of up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $250,000 when he is sentenced in May 2014.

    In pleading guilty, each of the defendants admitted that he participated in a campaign of threats, violence, and property destruction against non-union contractors in an effort to force those contractors to enter into a collective bargaining agreement with Local 17.

    Larson pled guilty to trying to force an Orchard Park contractor and its owner to sign with Local 17 by threatening the owner personally and after the contractor’s owner was stabbed by another Local 17 member. On February 5, 2003, the contractor’s owner asked Larson, “What are the positives [to signing with the union]? You guys slash my tires, stab me in the neck, try to beat me up in a bar. What are the positives to signing? There are only negatives.” Larson responded by telling the owner that “the positives are that the negatives you are complaining about would go away.”

    >As an early teen, I was fascinated with Abbie Hoffman’s “Steal This Book.” The book, by the 60?s radical Yippie, was a guide to using the capitalist system to destroy the capitalist system. Hoffman gave advice on how to cheat various institutions, such as the post office (e.g., mail an envelope to yourself without a stamp, with the return address of the person you want it to go to, and the post office will send it “back” to the returnee for free) all with the goal of disrupting civil society. For someone growing up in a nice suburb, this was mind-blowing stuff.<

  52. My prediction for 2014?

    Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.

    Poor Dr Sowell. He sees the problem. Still placing hope in republicans.

    ObamaCare looms large and menacing on our horizon.

    This is not just because of computer problems, or even because some people who think that they have enrolled may discover at their next visit to a doctor that they do not have any insurance coverage.

    What ObamaCare has done, thanks to Chief Justice Roberts’ Supreme Court decision, is reduce us all from free citizens to cowed subjects whom the federal government can order around in our own personal lives, in defiance of the 10th Amendment and all the other protections of our freedom in the Constitution of the United States.

    ObamaCare is more than a medical problem, though there are predictable medical problems — and even catastrophes — that will unfold in the course of 2014 and beyond.

    Our betters have now been empowered to run our lives, with whatever combination of arrogance and incompetence they may have, or however much they lie. [...]

    In our two-party system, everything depends on whether the Republicans step up to the plate and act like responsible adults who understand that ObamaCare represents a historic crossroads that will determine what kind of people we are going to be, for this generation and generations yet unborn — citizens or subjects.

    This means that Republicans have to decide whether their top priority is internal strife among the different wings of the party — another circular firing squad — or whether either wing puts the country first.

    *Sigh*

    Labor unions huh?

  53. >In the meantime, welcome back Speaker Pelosi.<

    nah sumthing happening here. too many saying whooray for our side. "if you want your plan you can keep…."

  54. >or whether either wing puts the country first.<

    k street rinos sux

  55.

    This means that Republicans have to decide whether their top priority is internal strife among the different wings of the party — another circular firing squad — or whether either wing puts the country first.

    Of course it will be a circular firing squad. The groups funding Karl Rove’s mainstreet project will see to that.

  56. On the citizens or subjects thing, my guess is that the Establishment will argue that since “subjects” is the logical ground between citizens and slaves, being subjects of a benevolent, properly managed government is a sure fire winner amongst moderates and independents.

    So from where I stand, defeating the Establishment wing of the GOP is a necessary first step to putting the country first.

  57. It would help if the country put the country first, as this would tend to alleviate more than a few of the intraparty squabbles. But the country may not be up to their own task.

  58. >if the country put the country first<

    proggtardia or bust?

  59. sdferr: i don’t want to “live” in their country.

  60. A prog warning smaller progs not to be so… intolerant.

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/12/30/why-the-duck-dynasty-controversy-could-hurt-democrats.html

    Most low-level progs are not so reflective or cognizant of their overreaches. But even with this one’s gentle remonstrations to the herd, collectively they’ve built such a head of steam that I don’t think there’s much control. We’re witnessing a stampede of leftlibprogs that deserves whatever push back we can still muster, on every front they’ve opened. Full-bore cross-spectrum in-their-face backlash, with a crescendo November 2016, just as lil’ proggie fears.

  61. Pushback on every front will hurt the GOPs continued rebranding of the party as moderate and centrist.

  62. >The backlash to the attack on Robertson was a reminder that the White House, the DNC, and progressive activists could soon find themselves living in an America in which those who think like Phil Robertson are calling the shots, because there are still just enough of them to take control of both houses come this November and quite possibly the White House in 2016.<

    and effin destroy the proggtarded

  63. >because there are still just enough of them<

    defund ALL of the proggtard agenda. hi npr , edu , et al

  64. “with a crescendo November 2016, just as lil’ proggie fears.”

    2016? You mean when President Christy leads the nation in a mandatory* diet to gain control over medical costs running up the national debt with the obesity dragging down single payer?

    *yes, mandatory. As in the NSA knows what you’re eating, and if there aren’t enough rice cakes in your diet, the IRS will be taxing a penalty on your fat ass.

  65. defund proggtarded positive feedback NOW

  66. “sdferr: i don’t want to “live” in their country.”

    Steal This Book is, in a way, a manual of survival in the prison that is Amerika. It preaches jailbreak. It shows you where exactly how to place the dynamite that will destroy the walls. The first section-SURVIVE!-lays out a potential action program for our new Nation. The chapter headings spell out the demands for a free society. A community where the technology produces goods and services for whoever needs them, come who may. It calls on the Robin Hoods of Santa Barbara Forest to steal from the robber barons who own the castles of capitalism. It implies that the reader already is “ideologically set,” in that he understands corporate feudalism as the only robbery worthy of being called “crime,” for it is committed against the people as a whole. Whether the ways it describes to rip-off shit are legal or illegal is irrelevant. The dictionary of law is written by the bosses of order. Our moral dictionary says no heisting from each other. To steal from a brother or sister is evil. To not steal from the institutions that are the pillars of the Pig Empire is equally immoral.

    Community within our Nation, chaos in theirs; that is the message of SURVIVE!

  67. Kinda goes with my comment at 9:11pm too.

    “Our” morality…

  68. - The ironies abound: “”We feel betrayed, lied to, and we’re pissed off.”

    - Bumblefuck and his gestoppo administration lying to the electorate? Knock me over with a feather.

    - If/when OCare goes down it will be the loss of their own supporters like the Unions and the Women block that does it.

  69. @yesnicksearcy
    Hey Dean and Melissa! Me and my prop say “Hi!” @Hwoodpolitix @Deanofcomedy @BBUMH @DLoesch @MHarrisPerry

    - The Left, vicious, racist, and petty. So what else is new?

  70. Guys, you forget: these are our intellectual, moral, spiritual betters. *

    We don’t lecture and hector them. They lecture and hector us.

    *I must have missed the memo announcing this, but it must be so, because they have told us.

  71. It would help if the country put the country first, as this would tend to alleviate more than a few of the intraparty squabbles. But the country may not be up to their own task.

    A top meme-attack on Conservatives – GOP – Republicans by the Democrats is “You are too stupid to join us, to vote in your own self-interest.” That’s a winning argument they use to attract their voters.

    When we have one Party who ‘Community Organizes’ over half the citizenry using ‘Vote for your own self-interest’ as an argument, and keeps winnings elections that way; and the ‘opposition’ Party quails at challenging them on it, and at times even joins in the treasury-handout-fests, well, we get to where we are right now.

    There’s not many ways to counter the ‘Vote for US, because SELF-INTEREST!‘ without some sort of manual reset.

  73. In some sense, we can see the price of our human, wide-ranging, adaptive intelligence as the particularly difficult problem of self-made maladaptive error. Abstracting, we might think that the forms of error would therefore be of particular interest to human beings — so much so, that for the most part humans would be naturally prepared to defend themselves against themselves. And I think, again for the most part, we have good reason to believe this to be so. But that brief description is only where the difficulty begins. This problem, in other words, is quite the maze, lab rats.

  74. “Actually, I’m quite surprised that the allegations of “child abuse” haven’t risen up yet – based on the failing to raise said grandchild in a proper “authentic culture”. – ”

    I suspect anyone who tried that line in public would be picked up and shook in the jaws of a mighty lawyer for all to see. Romney ain’t running for anything right now and he has no reason to put up with a lot of shit about his family.

  75. Do they mean the “authentic culture” that was pretty much lifted directly from Southern Whites who got it from their ancestors from Northern England? That authentic culture?

    Okey-dokey.

  76. “authentic culture”

    gives a whole new meaning to “acting white”
