Big Brother cast member: Pres. Obama is a "Muslim monkey"

big brother racism

Yes, I admit it, I watch Big Brother and have since Season One. Sue me. Mr. Laffy and I have no idea why we started, considering we're not fans of reality [sic] shows... which is ironic, because Mr. Laffy writes/produces reality shows. (Before you ask how one writes an unscripted show: He writes host dialog and figures out how to whittle down over 300 hours of footage to create a storyline for a 41-minute show.) So anyway.

Last year Big Brother had, erm, issues. Racist issues. Nasty ones. Ugly ones. Involving two blonde women targeting their fellow African American, Asian, and gay house guests. It was not easy to watch, the viewer backlash was loud and clear, and they both got fired from their jobs. But one of them came in second and was rewarded for her on-air behavior with thousands of dollars, despite her vile conduct.

Clearly, CBS, squirming amid the uncomfortable howls of protest, has learned a thing or two and is making every attempt to improve the screening process of this season's contestants.

The Los Angeles Times:

Absent in the promotion of the new season however has been any mention of the elephant in the "Big Brother" living room — the racist and homophobic comments that clouded last season, but did bolster ratings.

Key words: Bolster ratings.

In TV land, ratings are everything. Without ratings, shows go to TV Heaven (or Hell, depending on the show), with some exceptions of course. But CBS knows better than to repeat this particular mistake, especially one that was so egregiously offensive. Right?

But already a similar controversy is heating up. Fan websites discovered this week homophobic and racially inflammatory comments on social media from new cast member Caleb Reynolds, an "adventure hunting guide" who lives in Hopkinsville, Ky. In commentary on his Instagram account, Reynolds referred to President Obama as a "Muslim monkey" and used an anti-gay slur.

CBS's response? No comment. No comment about whether Racist Caleb will be a house guest. No comment about whether they knew about his disgusting racist, bigoted "commentary." Only silence, per the L.A. Times.

I guess they're weighing whether boosting the number of more rubbernecking viewers and spiking media coverage trump prejudice and hatred. That should be an easy choice. If CBS has to mull this one, then Big Brother will be evicted from my house.

VIDEO-- Romney supporter: Pres. Obama's father was a "Muslim, an atheist, and a communist... All three."

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Election observers believe that Ohio is the state most likely to decide who becomes our next President. These interviews were conducted with Ohio voters at a recent Romney rally in Defiance, OH.

See Interview B-Roll - Social Issues here: http://youtu.be/_6-ePaZ8148

Produced and edited by Chase Whiteside (interviewer) & Erick Stoll.

Stop me if you've heard this one before: A Muslim, and atheist, and a communist walk into a bar... and they were all Barack Obama's dad.

These are the people who can't answer simple questions about their own claims. These are the people who claim their freedoms are being taken away... as they vote to take away the freedoms of others. These are the people who support Mitt Romney.

"Rapists shouldn't be allowed into this country."

I wonder if he'd say the same about ignorami.

"I don't believe that gay people should be given the same rights."

"Same sex marriage is unnatural... it would happen in nature. It doesn't."

Gingrich: Blame Obama for suspicion about his religion; Geraldo Rivera VIDEO: Blame hoodies for Trayvon Martin killing.

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Let's see now, who can we blame today? Geraldo Rivera said this:

That's right, he said, “...I’ll bet you money that if he didn’t have that hoodie on that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that violent and aggressive way.”

He's blaming a hoodie, which of course, is saying that it's as much Trayvon Martin's fault for wearing one as it is George Zimmerman's for pulling the trigger, because Trayvon would automatically be "perceived as a menace" and was clearly asking to be shot... just as a woman wearing a short skirt or low cut top should be blamed for being raped because she was "asking for it."

Got it.

Mark Zuckerberg better be looking over his shoulder right about now.

Next case: Newton Leroy Gingrich.

While he was in Louisiana, Gingrich said that President Obama is to blame for being perceived as Muslim. Yes indeedy, it's all the president's fault that ignorant bigots use religion to thinly veil their hatred of "blah" people.

Here's what Newt said when a reporter asked if he was concerned that so many people still believe President Obama is Muslim:

"It should bother the president. Why does the president behave the way that people would think that [he is a Muslim]?” Gingrich said. ”You have to ask why would they believe that? It's not because they're stupid. It's because they watch the kind of things I just described to you.”

The former House speaker had already told reporters at the Port Fourchon Operations Center he finds it “very bizarre that he is desperately concerned to apologize to Muslim religious fanatics” and is at war with the Catholic Church. [...]

Earlier this week in Lake Charles, LA, the Speaker passed on the opportunity to correct a man who told the crowd Obama is a Muslim even though later that day he told a reporter he does believe Obama to be Christian.

And recently he Gingrich referenced “Obama’s Muslim friends” on a radio program:

“First, look you need to understand the elite media is in the tank for Obama. They’re going to do anything that helps re-elect Obama. They’re totally committed to Obama. It is just astonishing to me how pro-Obama they are... You think you’re going to see two pages on Obama’s Muslim friends? Or two pages on the degree to which Obama’s persistently apologizing to Islam while attacking the Catholic Church? Do you see anybody in the elite media prepared to see say, ‘Gee, you know this is kind of odd that we really worry a lot about the Quran and nothing about the Bible?”

And people still ask why the racism and bigotry in this country is intensifying? Not only is it being fueled by comments like all of the above, but it became more overt once Sarah Palin encouraged hate speech on the 2008 campaign trail, which is not only documented in the movie "Game Change," but also by the Secret Service here.

This kid is obviously asking for it. So is this guy:
