Conservative super-PAC FreedomWorks made video of fake panda bear performing oral sex on fake Hillary Clinton


hillary panda masks

There conservatives go again, showing off those family values of theirs. And by family values I mean hypocrisy, incredibly vile taste, and sexism.

David Corn at Mother Jones is reporting on tea party group and super-PAC FreedomWorks (where Dick Armey used to work) producing a video of a fake panda bear performing fake oral sex on a fake Hillary Clinton. The video was scrapped, but that won't erase the sick incentive, the reporting, the mental image, or the disgusting subject matter:

In one segment of the film, according to a former official who saw it, [Adam Brandon, executive vice president of the group] is seen waking from a nap at his desk. In what appears to be a dream or a nightmare, he wanders down a hallway and spots a giant panda on its knees with its head in the lap of a seated Hillary Clinton and apparently performing oral sex on the then-secretary of state. Two female interns at FreedomWorks were recruited to play the panda and Clinton. One intern wore a Hillary Clinton mask. The other wore a giant panda suit that FreedomWorks had used at protests to denounce progressives as panderers. (See herehere, and here.) Placing the panda in the video, a former FreedomWorks staffer says, was “an inside joke.”

Another FreedomWorks staffer who worked there at the time confirms that ”Yes, this video was created.” [...]

"How was that not some form of sexual harassment?" a former FreedomWorks official asks, noting that two female interns had been requested to act out a pretend sex scene. "And there were going to be thousands of Christian conservatives at this thing. This was a terrible lack of judgment."

"Lack of judgment." That's putting it mildly.

FreePAC, a FreedomWorks conference in July, 2012, was supposed to have shown the video, but that never happened. Apparently some of the saner staffers were appalled enough to change a few minds.

According to a former FreedomWorks official, Adam Brandon defended the film. He found it to be creative and funny. To repeat, he found it to be  creative and funny.

As we've noted in previous posts, including AUDIO– Fox mocks 102-year-old who waited hours to vote: “What’s the big deal? She was happy, conservatives have a very twisted, perverted definition of the word "funny."

Other examples of their so-called humor:

VIDEO: John McCain jokes about “mercilessly interrogating, waterboarding” John Kerry at confirmation hearing

Taco restaurant thinks their “How to Catch an Illegal Immigrant” t-shirts are “witty and comical”

Karl Rove: “We should sink Todd Akin. If he’s found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts!”

Pennsylvania GOP official’s “joke”: Obama supporter is “mentally retarded”

VIDEO- What makes Mitt Romney chuckle: Abusing dogs, gay schoolmates, employees, Medicare recipients, the sight-challenged…

I could go on, but I won't.

Obama punching bag "with a black eye" raffled off at seminar for "lawyers, accountants and other professionals"


The following was shared via email (links and bolding mine):

I am getting this from a first-hand attendee...Today, at LSCC's Magnolia Room, after an Estate Planning Seminar, John Feldman (of Cauthen & Feldman, PA in Tavares) raffled-off a 5' punching bag of President Obama (w/a black eye). While he may have thought this was funny, it was offensive to some attending. This seminar was attended by lawyers, accountants and other professionals, though I use that word loosely under this circumstance.

The event was sponsored by the First National Bank of Mount Dora, Florida Hospital Waterman and Lake Sumter's Foundation.

The author of the email wanted this "inappropriate behavior" to be "called out."

Aside from the obvious, what was also inappropriate was that only "some attending" were offended. The utter disrespect shown toward this president has been appalling and all too commonplace. In fact, there was a similar incident at the Indiana State Fair in July.

Hey vile, subhuman, cowardly, despicable offenders, consider yourselves called out.
