Democrat Congressman Goes Absolutely Whackjob With Students When Asked If He Supports Obama Agenda

June 15, 2010

If Representative Bob Etheridge were a dentist, he’d be drilling into Dustin Hoffman’s teeth while repeatedly asking, “Is it safe?

But he’s a liberal politician, so he’s just grabbing kids in a manner that clearly crosses the line to criminal assault and yelling “Tell me who you are!” over and over again.

As I’ll show at the end of the article, a different potential title for this write-up could have been, “So It IS Okay To Demand Someone’s Identity After All?

Democrat Congressman Goes Nuts When Asked if He Supports the “Obama Agenda”; Attacks Students – Video

Here is shocking video of North Carolina Democrat Rep. Bob Etheridge being asked by some students on a public sidewalk in Washington, D.C. if he supports the “Obama Agenda.” Once he realized the students were asking him that question, he went bonkers. Etheridge hit their camera and then grabbed one of the students by the arm as he repeated over and over “Who are you, Who are you? Tell me who you are?” The students identified themselves as such, but Etheridge persisted. At one point he then grabbed the student whose arm he had been holding onto and pulled himself up beside himself with his arm wrapped around the student. The student repeatedly asked the Congressman to “let go of my arm.”

There is no scenario under which this kind of behavior is acceptable. Etheridge represents the 2nd District in North Carolina, and faces a tough re-election battle. This video ought to seal his defeat. It’s time for voters to say to Etheridge, “Who are you” to treat people like this?

Mike Flynn at Big Government has more.

I mean, my goodness; and I thought I was embarrassed and paranoid about the Obama agenda.

This is one of the ways that you fans keeping score at home can know that the Obama agenda has been a complete and abject failure: Democrats are going flat out psychopath when asked about said complete and abjectly failed agenda.

A dramatic re-enactment of Democrat Bob Etheredge immediately after being asked if he supports the Obama agenda:

In his apology, Bob Etheredge pointed out how completely wonderful he’d always been, saying, “Throughout my many years of service to the people of North Carolina.  I have always tried to treat people from all viewpoints with respect.”

And I hardly ever grab kids who had merely asked me a perfectly legitimate question while screaming at them.

Etheredge said he’d had a bad day, which I’m sure was also a perfectly good excuse for Jack Torrance in The Shining.

Neither man is psychologically competent to hold national elected office, mind you.

Remember how the media tore into and destroyed George Allen for using a word that could have damn well meant just about anything to refer to a different college student?  Apparently, according to the mainstream media, it’s okay to criminally assault students, just as long as you don’t use a nonsense word like “macaca.”  Wrongfully imprisoning and criminally assaulting a kid is fine, if you’re a Democrat; using a phrase that had every single mainstream media reporter in the country desperately searching through obscure etymologies to find a racist definition is an offense that demands resignation, if you’re a Republican.

If Bob Etheredge isn’t hounded out of office in national disgrace, led by the Washington Post, you can rest assured that Joseph Goebbels is alive and well in the American media.

But thus far, the mainstream media is offering the story that these kids might have had a motive for asking their perfectly innocent question.  Because, in mainstream media land, the politician’s right to demand an answer while committing criminal assault clearly trumps the kids’ right to ask an innocent question on a public sidewalk.

Another interesting angle: Democrats have gone almost as completely unhinged as, well, Bob Etheredge, over the Arizona law, in which police officers can ask potential illegal immigrants about their status if they apprehend them for being involved in a different illegal action.  That, of course, is wrong.  How DARE those pig cops question those poor, innocent people.  But some whackjob Democrat congressman who grabs kids on a public sidewalk and repeatedly demands an answer about their identity?  That’s different.  Because we’re Democrats, and over-the-top abject hypocrisy is our way of life.

Dan Rather: ‘Obama Couldn’t Sell Watermelons’

March 10, 2010

We can only wonder what would have happened if Fox News anchor emeritus Brit Hume had said the following:

“Part of the undertow in the coming election is going to be President Obama’s leadership. And the Republicans will make a case and a lot of independents will buy this argument. “Listen he just hasn’t been, look at the health care bill. It was his number one priority. It took him forever to get it through and he had to compromise it to death.” And a version of, “Listen he’s a nice person, he’s very articulate” this is what’s been used against him, “but he couldn’t sell watermelons if it, you gave him the state troopers to flag down the traffic.”

[Youtube]

If Brit Hume had said that, the left would have ripped their robes in self-righteous outrage and shouted, “BLASPHEMY!”

But it wasn’t Brit Hume who said that our first black president couldn’t sell watermelons.  It was liberal legend Dan Rather who said it.

And so instead of pulling out every stop to label the statement as a rant of typical racist conservative hate, the same media talking heads who would have been all over this story are either omitting it completely or else giving it the “he didn’t really mean it” spin job.

Chris Matthews jumped in with a frenzy to prevent liberal icon Dan Rather from saying something even more stupid or more racist.

Chris Matthews – who once managed to forget Barack Obama was black for a whole entire hour – apparently had his memory jogged when Dan Rather started spouting off about Obama and watermelons.

If Rather had been given a chance to fully explain himself, maybe he would have said something like, “Obama couldn’t sell watermelons.  What he needs to do is sell something he CAN sell.  Maybe he can’t sell watermelons, so he should sell fried chicken instead.”

And it’s such a shame that Obama couldn’t even manage to sell watermelons if the (presumably white) state troopers were out helping him.  I mean, after all – as Harry Reid can vouch – Obama is a ‘light-skinned’ African American ‘with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,’ and you’d think he could have a fine career in roadside watermelon sales.

And Bill Clinton would hastily point out that if Obama didn’t have the knack for selling watermelons (or fried chickens), he could fulfill his true calling of serving his betters their coffee.

All of that is just the very recent stuff.

And these are the very sort of slime who have repeatedly characterized conservatives and Republicans as being “racists” when they’ve got more racism in their pinky fingers.

George Allen was a Senator and a leading hopeful for president when he said one word which so outraged Democrats that they ended his career.  He didn’t talk about black people selling watermelons; he didn’t try to lecture on the advantages of ‘light skinned’ African Americans vis-a-vie the “darkies” who were more likely to suffer from “Negro dialect”; he didn’t suggest that a man who is now president of the United States would have or should have been serving coffee instead.  He used a single word – macaca – that required a study in etymology to suggest that it might just possibly be racist.

There was no suggestion that Allen wasn’t a racist, or that he probably meant something else, or that there should be forgiveness, or even that we need to get past the ‘gotcha’ moments.  They simply screamed that he was a racist and destroyed him.

And there’s your selective tolerance of liberals.

Which is why we always seem to have a cult of pardon for liberals, to counterbalance the cult of demonization that the very same people who pardon the liberals apply to conservatives.

I’m not inclined to assume that Dan Rather is a racist.  That seems to be the prerogative of liberals.

But I am more than inclined to point out that these people are a bunch of  self-righteous hypocritical slimeballs.

Teleprompter Boy Wishes Us A Happy “Cinco de Quatro”

May 6, 2009

Let me preamble by pointing out that if George Bush had done this, it would have been sufficient for a blatantly dishonest and biased media to broadcast the footage everywhere in order to create the narrative that Bush was hopelessly stupid, and it would have inspired a four-part CNN miniseries questioning why President Bush was so hostile and so ignorant regarding Hispanic culture.  Mainstream talking heads would have crawled out of myriad holes to opine on this shocking display of stupidity and insensitivity, and “journalists” would have produced dozens of offended Mexicans to document their outrage for mass consumption.  Many would discover some deeply hidden and obscure racist meaning to “cinco de quatro” a la “macaca.”

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama’s joke wasn’t lost in translation—even though he referred to a Cinco de Mayo celebration as “Cinco de Cuatro.”Obama jumbled his words as he welcomed guests to the White House to observe the Mexican holiday, sending the crowd into laughter before he referred to the day correctly.

“Welcome to Cinco de Cuatro—Cinco de Mayo at the White House,” said Obama, in what appeared to be an attempt to note they were celebrating on the fourth of May instead of the fifth.

Cinco de cuatro means “five of four” in Spanish.

Youtube.

It continues to amaze and astound me that the mainstream media bask in the glory of all that is Obama and characterize him as the most brilliant man who ever lived.  Bush used his teleprompter ONLY for major speeches; Obama takes his teleprompter EVERYWHERE HE GOES and can’t even seem to successfully say, “Good morning” without being able to read it from some screen.  And Bush was the stupid one?

I mean, Bush had his share of awkward constructions, but at least they were HIS awkward constructions.  Without his teleprompter, Obama is like THIS:

And like this:

Youtube:

We no longer have a president; we have “the Teleprompter of the United States” (TOTUS).

obama_teleprompter1Let’s realize something.  TOTUS might be brilliant; TOTUS might be inspiring; but Barack Husseing Obama is a first class pompous idiot.  The same media that relentless attacked and characterized Bush for his every foible is too dishonest and too biased to do the same with their new messiah.
