So she's going to start deportation hearings for Boehner?

Well, so we're going to be picking on the Wops instead of the Micks for a change?

Seriously, kids. Latinos will be one of the largest ethnic groups in the country by 2030. Might want to back off that panic button, because the kids who are coming up, they're going to remember who talked smack about them for a long while. You want to piss off 35% of the electorate, keep farking that chicken...

Olive complexion? She's concerned that our nation is being overrun by illegal Mediterranean immigrants? Huh.

I think she couldn't stick to the Mediterranean Diet and is out for revenge. Fat, fat revenge.

REP. O'BRIEN: My son who's a Kansas resident, born here, raised here, didn't qualify for any financial aid. Yet this girl was going to get financial aid.

YOU DON'T KNOW THAT, YOU RETARDED PERSON!!

For all you know, she could have been paying by check because she was an international student. Or, she could have been a 5th generation American paying by check because her parents are rich.

Your son didn't get financial aid because you're a farking Congresswoman who makes $141,000 a year, you pedantic twat.

She's a State Representative in Kansas. She gets $184.40/day for the 90 days per year the legislature is in session, plus 30cents/mile in travel allowance and $6775/year in expenses. So, $32k and half the year off.

ahh..I missed that.

I thought she was a federal moron. I don't know enough about her situation to say why her kid would or wouldn't receive funding, but I know she sure as HELL doesn't know the financial or immigration status of that other girl.

THIS IS WHAT REPUBLICANS ACTUALLY THINK

/it is, actually. i had an argument with a republican about arizona SB1070 a while back, and he couldn't accept the fact that there are americans who have olive skin and speak spanish. so when i brought up the fact that the law opened up the possibility of americans being stopped simply because of their skin color, he had no idea what i was talking about. it was the same sort of impasse that i've seen when discussing torture, in which wingnuts automatically assume that every muslim is a terrorist.

Eh, I'd say let this one go. Judging by the "O'" in front of her name, it was probably just some drunken rant brought on by too much of the ol' Irish cough syrup.

You know how those types are. We should compliment her on her ability to control that infamous Mick temper and not go after that girl with a broken bottle of Jameson.

So you're saying drunken Irish Micks know how to use a N*gger knife. I don't think so...

I'm half Irish. I look Irish. I am as pasty and freckled as a redhead can be. Firecrotch too.

My dad is Italian, and he looks like he could be a mulatto. I'm getting a kick out of this.

I'm German-Irish and Japanese. Born in Okinawa even. Can I get a nod from most sushi places even for knowing how to use damn chopsticks? Not with this pale mug. My daughter looks more Asian than I do...

I like a martini with a very slight olive complexion.

Mmm... Dirty martini...

An albino?

Nina Blackburn: For instance, with the song "Kill Whitey."

Ice Cold: That shiat was a whole big misunderstanding. They took the whole thing out of context.

Tone Deaf: They were trying to say we were advocating killing white people and shiat.

Tasty Taste: Yeah! Do I look like the type of nagga that could kill a whole buncha white mutha farkas? I mean, you know, if provoked, but not on a humbug."

Nina Blackburn: Well, in the song lyrics I'm quoting: "He'll rip you off. He'll take your money, make you work for free. Though you may scoff. It isn't funny. He's the devil, see. Kill Whitey."

Ice Cold: Right. Now how can you listen to that and think we're talking about killing all white people?

Tone Deaf: Fact. We were talking about one specific whitey. Whitey Deluca our ex-manager.

Tasty Taste: He ripped us off for 70 g's.

Ice Cold: That's right. And Whitey Deluca wasn't even white. He was Italian. He was one of those olive complexion MFs you know.

Nina Blackburn: If I remember correctly, he ended up murdered?

Ice Cold: We wasn't in town when that shiat happened.

Tone Deaf: Wait a minute, we were here.

Ice Cold: No, no, no. We were in Cleveland like a "mo fo" remember?

Tone Deaf: Oh, yeah.

O'Brien has been the target of scathing media coverage since her remark, and numerous Kansas Democratic Party lawmakers have asked her to apologize. For her part, O'Brien counters that she's been told she's "got olive complexion" and that she's not going to apologize until she's "had time to think."

So then she must be illegal to right?

and that she's not going to apologize until she's "had time to think."


That's Republican for "being told what to say".

And this is why Republicans think "Illegal Mexicans are everywhere!!!" because they think every mestizo the see is an illegal.

I have an olive complexion. I'm also a 4th generation American citizen by way of Germany. And unlike the Mayflower/Confederate era folks, we actually did have papers.

Save your expertise for your drunken family reunion, Paddy.
 
2011-02-15 07:02:08 PM  
Oh, you idiot. Please come to my home and start identifying illegals on sight. I'm sure you'll have no issues. We'll start at our most famous landmark, the Alamo, and go from there.

Republicans, this is why Texas will go blue sooner than you imagine. Think about that for a second.

Was the audio recording not complete?

Based on what she said it doesn't sound like the girl with the "olive complexion" was given the financial aid. In fact she was told she needed some form if ID, which she did not have. Then the story ends when the girl with the olive complexion asked to speak with someone else.

Did the next person give her financial aid? If so why not include that in your story?
 
2011-02-15 07:04:35 PM  
Well, seeing as how when I tan, I can get really dark, does that make me an illegal? I blended in with the Italians just fine. Can I switch????


/had pre-cancerous moles so I have to be careful.
 
2011-02-15 07:04:46 PM  
So mommy had to go in with her baby boy to help him fill out the forms? Her kid doesn't know his social security number or something? That deserves a sound mocking right there.
 
2011-02-15 07:06:44 PM  
I would have have been pretty humiliated bringing my mom to Financial Aid with me.

Is Mama's little USA Hero not man enough to face those scary grad students behind the computer?

my gf is half japanese half persian so i'm...wait what we're we talking about again?
 
2011-02-15 07:08:04 PM  
Your son doesn't qualify because, judging from the fact that you accompanied your pwecious adult son to the financial aid office, he's probably still a dependent of yours and you make too much money.

Cut back to the limo, George is reading from O'Brien's speech.

George: ...and the Jews steal our money through their Zionist occupied government and use the black man to bring drugs into our oppressed white minority communities.

Jerry: You're not going to open with that, are you?

Later . . .

George (still pretending to be O'Brien): --Astroturf? You know who's responsible for that, don't you?! The Jews! Ah, the Jews hate grass. They always have, they always will.

Tim: We'll be ready in a minute.

George: Would you excuse us for a minute Tim boy, we're kind of in the middle of something.

Tim: With all due respect, Mr. O'Brien, we're just about to leave.

George: Tim, who's the head of the Aryan Union, you or me?

Tim: You are.

George: And who's responsible for making hate mongering and fascism popular again?

Tim: You are.

George: Good. I think you forgot something.

Tim: I'm sorry.

George: Good. Now get out.

Was it the Frisco Skins or the Bash Boys or some other bunch of shaven-headed window-lickers I used to know who said, "No one darker than a paper bag!"? That way, you needn't carry a color wheel around with you to figure out whose door you should spray paint the swastikas on while drunk. Scary that people like that can get elected even to state-wide office in this day and age.
