WTF? It had been called "Godfather's" for over a decade before Cain took over. Shouldn't this guy be whining about Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppala?

that's not nearly as menacing as you think it is.


that said, i am taken aback by how many people seem to like Cain. Granted, I didn't take any of their political opinions that seriously to begin with, but this certainly didn't help.
 
2011-06-25 07:13:17 PM  
But somehow the libs thought that the John Stewart "amos and andy" impersonation of Cain was funny. Double think much?

He's the fun guy that conservatives pretend to support to assuage their racial hatred of Obama. There is no real support for him. He's sorta like how Jesse Jackson was for liberals in the 80s.
 
2011-06-25 07:17:49 PM  
But Cain is only a symptom of the problem. Perhaps because Italian-Americans have generally integrated into society at large, it has become acceptable to mock them. Thus we have the "goombahs" of "The Sopranos" and the "guidos" of "Jersey Shore."

Um, those farking oompa-loompahs self-identify as guidos. In fact, if you're in the northeast and you're an Italian-American under 28 and your arms are exposed and your hair is gelled right now, there's a 95% chance you call yourself a guido.

Then again, other assimilated immigrant groups have been spared such mockery.

After all, can you imagine someone callous enough to open Shylock's Bagels? What about Third Reich Beer & Sausages?


... that last one would actually be pretty hilarious.

The difference? The liberals in this thread are actually saying "What the fark? This is stupid," instead of giving half a crap or, more common with NRO whining, tacitly defending it.

Also, the writer of TFA isn't a liberal. He's a writer for Esquire who wrote the book "How Italian Food Conquered the World." He's a butthurt Italian, not a libtard.

People like him because he is not a politician. He just says what he thinks. Which is why he is never going to actually be a politician.

He should be writing about The Jersey Shore instead of Godfather's Pizza.

Yukon Callmeal: The liberal mind at work.


Uhhhhh, wrong. This is a hypersensitive Italian-American at work. It happens quite often. The minute you associate anything "Italian" to the mafia, you're stereotyping Italian-Americans...even though it's been Italian-Americans who engrained the mafia into American pop-culture...

I don't find it offensive, just annoying. I find hypersensitivity to ethnic issues equally annoying.

Get over it

Are you Leftists ever ashamed of yourselves? The way that you feel that you must mock and destroy anyone who dares to disagree with your point of view?

Disgusting and pathetic creatures, you are.

FTFA: Indeed, Uncle Ben, once shown as a white-coated servant, is now depicted in ads as a corporate executive, looking not unlike Herman Cain. Aunt Jemima, once a bandanna-wearing kitchen cook, now looks like Oprah Winfrey.


In other words, "Italian American stereotypes are offensive and we shouldn't stand for them. Also, did you ever notice that all of the blacks look the same?"

The funniest thing about Biden is that he's better presidential material than any on the GOP clowns running.

No self-respecting (or even self-hating) Italian would want to have anything to do with the culinary atrocity that Herman Cain is responsible for.

When did liberals say they hated him? When did they say they hated Sarah Palin?

Liberals just see them for the intellectual light weights they are and laugh in their general direction. You take that as hate and they continue to think you're stupid for thinking these people can run a country.

Liberals also had Qaddafi, so you should probably go vote for him. Obama's bombing him so he's probably a strong capitalist leader fighting against communism.
