Texas Republican Combines “I Have Black Friends” and “Obama is Hitler” In Floor Speech

There really ought to be an IQ test to be a Congressman or Senator in the United States. I mean – you are required to have a college degree now for a job with a Federal Contractor loading paper in the copier in a mailroom.

Why exactly should we allow people in office who consistently are too stupid to figure out the difference between Portrait and Landscape???

This clown starts of with the standard white racist conservative “Tom Argument” — I’m not a racist! I have black friends!”

“Uncle Tommy Sewage is a “brilliant man” who I would have voted for President.” “Brilliance” and “Intelligence” in this case being a function of being a chocolate-colored minnow in the shallow end of the pale gene pool, instead of being just another crack whore in the shallow end of brown minnow pool. The vast majority of Uncle Tommie Sewage’s arguments are diaphanously constructed juvenile screeds assembled to keep the gravy train flowing by providing cover for racist conservatives. This one is no different.

A guy by the name of OldSpazzy hits it on the head over on Youtube –

Reductio ad Hitlerum, also argumentum ad Hitlerum, is an ad hominem or ad misericordiam argument, and is an informal fallacy.

The fallacy claims that a policy leads to—or is the same as—one advocated or implemented by Adolf Hitler or the Third Reich, and so “proves” that the original policy is undesirable. For example: “Hitler was a vegetarian, so vegetarianism is wrong.” The tactic is often used to derail arguments, because such comparisons tend to distract and anger.

The argument presented by this conservaclown – Rep. Louis Gohmert of (where else?) Texas is…

Hitler gained power by convincing people who would not normally vote to vote for him. Obama won the Presidency by convincing large numbers of people who don’t normally vote to turn out…

Therefore Obama is Hitler, and Obama is a dictator like Hitler.

Bulldiddle.

Another One for Uncle Tommie Sewage

Kansas Republican’s “Great White Hope”

Representative Lynn Jenkins

Representative Lynn Jenkins

Republican Party Looking for a “Great White Hope”

The latest blunder comes courtesy of US Rep. Lynn Jenkins, who represents Kansas’s 2nd District. According to a bio posted on her site, Jenkins, a Republican, grew up on a farm, where she “learned the values of hard work, keeping your word, and the importance of serving your community.” But Jenkins, like many of her fellow GOP members, is incensed about the new healthcare reform bill supported by the White House.

She’s also incensed that Democrats have taken control of the House and Senate. She’s praying for a challenger. Someone who can assume the mantle of the right. Someone who holds dear traditional conservative values. And someone, apparently, who is Caucasian. Today, the Associated Press reported that Jenkins told attendees of a Kansas rally that the Republican Party was in need of a “great white hope.”

Once the media got a hold of the story Jenkins quickly began to backpedal. Through a spokeswoman, Mary Geiger, Jenkins apologized for her word choice and said she did not intend to offend anyone. The White House has not yet weighed in. It’s possible, of course, that Jenkins didn’t understand that “great white hope” is an extremely loaded term.

It was first employed near the beginning of the 20th century, when boxing promoters cast about frantically for a white fighter who could challenge Jack Johnson. Johnson, a black man, was the target of a vicious racist campaign, and in 1912, he was twice arrested for transporting white women “across state lines for immoral purposes.”

Guss it would be unfair to inform Rep Jenkins…

“Once you go Black – you can’t go back!”

Your Brain on Racism – Birther Meltdown

Birther Whack-job extrodinaire Orly Taitz does a complete meltdown on MSNBC –

This is your brain on racism.

To give you a bit of background on some of these folks – here is a bit of background by Skeeter, over at The Skeeter Bites Reports

But this particular conspiracy-theory movement is more sinister than most. The ‘Skeeter Bites Report has uncovered a wealth of evidence that the “Birther Movement” against the president is inextricably tied to white supremacists and other far-right extremists — and is profoundly marked by an absolute refusal among its practitioners to accept Obama as president because he is black, or because of an equally-false belief that he is a Muslim.
