Pittman No. Carolina  racist Obama kenya

North Carolina GOP state Rep. Larry Pittman is a real card. What a comedian. He's a regular Laugh. Riot! Italicized!

No, I'll do you one better: He oughta get his very own late night talk show... so we can turn him off.

Here's what he told his supporters at a town hall meeting in Concord, via Taegan. Equally disturbing: the crowd laughed:

Someone had posted something with a picture of Barack Obama and across it said "traitor." And, you know, I don't always agree with the guy, I certainly didn't vote for him but I gotta defend him on this one.

I just don't think it's right at all to call Barack Obama a traitor. There's a lot of things he's done wrong but he is not a traitor. Not as far as I can tell. I haven't come across any evidence yet that he has done one thing to harm Kenya.

not funny hahaha no

VIDEO: Ted Cruz fan thinks "Canada is not really foreign soil." Then neither is Mexico. Welcome in, amigos!

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

priceless

Our own Lucian (@lwdgrfx) spotted more right wing hypocrisy, stupidity, and even found some humor in this eye-popping post at Raw Story.

Birther Christina Katok, of course, an avid Ted Cruz fan, proves once again how so many of these right wing extremists are of very little, if any, brain.

As you probably know by now, Cruz recently released his Canadian birth certificate which proved that he was born in a foreign country (Canada) to an American mother.

But Katok doesn't seem to understand a few basics, as you can see in the video where you can watch her say the following at a Texas tea party rally:

As far as I’m concerned, Canada is not really foreign soil,” she explained, adding that she was more worried about the president’s “strong ties to Kenya.” She noted that Obama had not released his long-form birth certificate until after he was elected.

What if Canadians were brown people who didn't speak English, Birther Christina? Would you make the same claim, as far as you're concerned? What if President Obama's skin was as white as yours?

I'll dispense with further snarky commentary, because Lucian nailed it in two sentences. As he points out so astutely:

"If Canada 'is not really foreign soil' because they're our neighbors, then neither is Mexico. Therefore, we no longer need to worry about deporting Mexican citizens here without papers because hey, what's the problem - they're not foreigners!

Trying to maintain Ted Cruz is eligible for the presidency but President Obama is not? Priceless."

VIDEO-- Here we go again. TX GOP Rep. Blake Farenthold: House has votes to impeach Pres. Obama "tomorrow"

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

stfu lights camera

The video is from a town hall meeting in Luling, Texas. Rep. Blake Farenthal responded to a constituent who asked if he would support an investigation into whether Obama forged his birth certificate. Neanderthal Farenthal agreed to check out a 57-page affidavit from (wait for it) Lt. Mike Zullo, Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s Cold Case Posse lead investigator. Apparently it contains proof that President Obama's birth certificate is fake.

Of course it does. Does it also say he's black? Because that's really the point, isn't it?

The Hill:

GOP Rep. Blake Farenthold (Texas) said House Republicans have enough votes to impeach President Obama, but warned the effort to remove him from office would be unsuccessful and could damage the country.

If we were to impeach the president tomorrow, you could probably get the votes in the House of Representatives to do it,” Farenthold said at an Aug. 10 town-hall meeting.

At first, Farenthold had pangs of regret that Congress didn't pursue the president's Kenyanage during the 2008 campaign, but then he felt it necessary to explain why Republicans didn't try to impeach.

See, the country would be harmed if they did that, see, because the House would have rabidly hunted down Obama like an animal, but then the clearly misguided Senate-- controlled by Dems-- would have made them look like the bottom-feeders they are.

What message do we send to America if we impeach Obama and he gets away with what he’s impeached for and is found innocent?” Farenthold said.

Ooo! Ooo! Pick me! I know! I know! The message would be that birthers need lobotomies!

Follow the link to see which other House Republicans are salivating over totally groundless impeachment proceedings and therefore have no right to hold public office.

Donald Trump's wiglets, er, kidlets tell him to kindly STFU... allegedly.

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

The three eldest Trump wiglets, er, kidlets allegedly told Daddy Dearest to STFU, er, tone things down when it comes to one of his favorite pastimes: Being outspoken, er, Obama bashing. Allegedly.

They inexplicably believe that he has a reputation to protect. And by reputation, they mean total lack of self-awareness, a foul mouth and decaying mind. What's left of it, that is.

However, they did acknowledge that former Romney surrogate Donald Trump is what's known in intellectual circles as an "attention whore," thrives on pooper-scoopers of "look at me", and is prone to overkill.

Via the Daily News:

“The three of them met and went to see their dad in his Fifth Ave. office. They showed a lot of respect, but told him he’s worked too long and too hard to build up the reputation he has. They understand completely he’s always been outspoken and that he likes attention, but this is too much,” says a source who knew about the mid-October meeting.

Trump’s rep denies any such meeting ever took place.

He also denies the validity of President Obama's citizenship, college records, marriage, and even a presidential appearance on the Tonight Show.

Pot. Kettle. Preposterous.

VIDEO: America Doesn't Need a Birther-in-Chief

Even if Willard Romney's not a racist, and he is now being accused of racism, he's clearly desperate enough to feel it necessary to pander to them.

:

Stand with the President: http://OFA.BO/81VThc

Holding out hope Romney had a vision for the middle class? Think again.

Mitt Romney: "No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised."

Embracing unfounded conspiracy theories, distracting from real issues.

America doesn't need a Birther-in-Chief.

Joy Ann Reid nailed it in the last 7 seconds (above):

"If you're trying to ingratiate yourself to birthers at this point, you're losing by a landslide."

Actually, they all did. This entire segment was an excellent summary of exactly who Willard Rommey and Co. are:

So Willard, we've all seen President Obama's birth certificate, but where are your tax returns, hmm?

"See any pattern here? Repeat the lie and deny you believe it."

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Today's L.A. Times letters to the editor, because our voices matter:

Re "Truth, lies and Obama," Opinion, July 31

Jonah Goldberg does exactly what author David Maraniss addressed in his Op-Ed piece that Goldberg was opining on: repeat the lies and add, "I think Maraniss is a great reporter, and I don't believe for a moment he is in on a cover-up of Obama's real place of birth or his secret Muslim faith."

See any pattern here? Repeat the lie and deny you believe it. Goldberg and his ilk want you to believe that President Obama wasn't properly vetted. He goes on to blame Obama and the "journalistic establishment" for the lies. What a gloriously accommodating phrase that is: journalistic establishment.

By the way, when most of us voted for Obama in 2008 as "a unifier, a pragmatist and a non-ideologue," we knew he would have to govern with Republican obstructionists in Congress — hardly the vacuum Goldberg would have us believe the president has been governing in.

So Goldberg has no trouble believing that journalists have been duped about Obama's "real" relationship with Bill Ayers (among other supposed duplicities)? But wait a minute, isn't Goldberg himself a journalist? Why hasn't he uncovered anything of substance?

Could it be that perhaps there is nothing to be found?

I am so thoroughly tired of these kinds of ad hominem attacks and the media's willingness to entertain them in the supposed interests of journalistic "balance." And so the myth of the "liberal" media continues.
