whidbey: Make More Hinjews: We used to bankroll Civil Rights. Now we bankroll Andrew Breitbart and the Fundies.

Because Civil Rights=flatscreen TVs and junk food


No, really... Jews bankrolled Civil Rights. I'm proud of that. :)


Breitbart and the Fundies: I can dance to it. I'm a gunna give it a 78.

Heh.

Corvus:
I am guessing they will ignore the fact the Obama's speech was 100% about supporting Bell about diversity on campus and take other things Bell has done out of context and pretend Obama is actually supporting those elements instead.
I think I will be right.


HE HUGGED HIM. He not only supported his every view, they were probably having sex. They just need to dig a little deeper, since all the tapes of Obama having sex with agitator Negroes have been destroyed by the liberal media. And now Breitbart is dead. But the fight will continue.

Every president gets 3 secret murders per term. Like vacation days, if you don't use them, they don't roll over.

After Andy and Davy Jones, Buildabear Hungryhungryhippos Fartblamfart only has 1 left.

Better run and hide, Pat Sajak.

Yeah that link several people posted to PBS? The 2008 video is 11 minutes long. It's pretty farking dull. I have a feeling that without your echo chamber telling you what to think, you're as impotent in your own imagination as you are in real life, and are flailing around in desperate, ego-soothing wishful thinking. Pretty farking funny to watch, too. They're doing it over in the Breitbart comments section as well.

Obama has done an okay job. And he's going to do a shiat ton better than any of the weird freakshow gop candidate list. and given the consequences of obama NOT winning this election there's no way I'll vote third party. meh.

Bathia_Mapes: Mad Scientist: Did teleprompters exist that long ago?

The teleprompter was invented in 1950. In 1952 former President Herbert Hoover used one to address the Republican National Convention in Chicago.


I heard he used one in his interview for Harvard Law.

It's sad he doesn't even understand why he supposed to be outraged yet. he has to wait for tonight when fox news tells him.

Bloody William: In all seriousness, and please don't respond sarcastically because (fark, I just invited you all to do just that, didn't I?) I'd really like to know, what exactly is Breitbart's point? How is this a smoking gun for Obama? How does it make him look bad in any way?


These long threads are painful to navigate on the mobile version, so forgive me if this has already been said-

It's only bad if Brietbart or his ilk cherry-pick it, pack it in a hand grenade, and lob it over a wall before anyone has seen the full version and can correctly dismiss it as some largely innocuous speech or meeting.

If not beaten to the punch, these fartbandits would be able to turn Charlotte's Web into some pro-Chavez, anti-heartland instruction manual for terrorists.

That video made me proud that we've got a president that honestly seems to give a shiat about being smart and stuff.

Not that I've seen any evidence that that attractive and successful orator in the video is indeed Barack Hussein Obama.

He scoffs at your 3-secret-murder rule.

Here is the list so far.

How is this a racially charged or a "scary" video?


Simple. Obama occupies the White House. Everything that usurper Kenyan ever did is uppity and scary.

Corvus: WE WERE LIED TOO!! OBAMA WAS STILL BLACK IN COLLEGE!!!


He was even blacker in college. Must be some kind of Michael Jackson skin-peeling shiat.

Oh, boy! Now THAT would be a scandal! "Obama has cosmetic dermatological treatment!" It would be the biggest scandal since the John Edwards Hair Scandal or even the Clinton Haircut Affair.

Why are Republicans obsessed with hair, by the way? Why do they all look like their hair was molded in fiberglass? Are they concealing riding helmets and headphones under that hair? Is it because they are afraid of snipers? Or are they still obsessed with black people passing for white with their hair-straighteners and peroxide?

Why does Mrs. Gingrich look like she was stolen from Madama Tussaud's Wax Museum Gallery of Insane Female Monsters? Is she really a Stepford Wife, or just a Philip K. Dick-style Presidential Wife Simulacrum? Why did they make her look so crazy? Not all Southern Women look that crazed. I've seen several who could pass for sane, rational beings if it weren't for their choice of husbands and boyfriends. Speaking of girlfriends, how come Obama doesn't have a couple of ho's under each arm when he attacks Whitey?

How did he pay his way through college? Whar receipts? WHAR tax deductions?

Because if the story doesn't hang together, you should hang Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck separately. Or together, with one rope. That's a classic.
 
2012-03-07 08:24:51 PM
This proves Obama is a liberal elitist who went to an ivy league college and is therefore out of touch with mainstream 'merica -- unlike his Republican counterparts who also went to an ivy league college and are out of touch with mainstream 'merica, but pretend to be as dumb as the people they're pandering to.

dudemanbro: Wow, his speech style hasn't changed much since then. And I too wondered about the hand in-and-out of the pocket thing. Maybe he was stoned and paranoid that his weed was falling out.


It's just a body language issue that he's corrected. Most people when learning to speak publicly focus on the voice but they still sway or pace or rub their hands together. It takes more effort to fix the other things, particularly when you don't notice you're doing it. I hope this is Breitbart's last hurrah, because if it is, it's a massive massive fail.

Yeah, then it'll be interesting on here. None of the regular trolls are here yet either. Once they get their thoughts, in bullet points, from Gretchen Carlson and Co., then they will be here in force to say how this is a conspiracy of the grandest variety. Man, I have really developed a love/hate relationship with them.

Jmast7: The comments over at Hot Air are priceless too:

"Per Hannity, tapes show a Pattern of behavior for Obama and the medias lack of attention to his past and admitting they are withholding the info. What impact did his associations have on his governance? All topics on Hannity tonight. Breitbart guys on the radio show at 4."

LOL! Enquiring minds want to know!


The funny thing is that this exact speech was on PBS's Frontlines "The Choice 2008" and today Frontline just posted the full video from WGBH's archive who filmed it in the first place. So the Lame stream MSM Media did cover this...twice.

....holy shiat, that is a bowtieless tucker carlson.
 
2012-03-07 08:28:56 PM
Seriously? This is damning video that Hannity has been pushing all week? A video of him giving a speech in favor of a professor who happened to push something called "critical race theory"?!

1) Obama has been in office for 3 years and before that was in the Senate. With all that time that he was actually in charge of stuff, a speech he gave in 1990 is the best can come up with?

2) Hannity and his douche friends still dont understand the varying definitions of theory. In the liberal arts, a "theory" is just mental masturbation. It =/= a scientific theory.

To be honest. That's the most useful he's ever been to society.

Sorry but the guy was pure hateful, vile, disgusting trash plain and simple

And to make it even more assholish they are attacking a man who can't defend himself because he is dead. Republicans, this has what your party has become.

Yup. Like I said, it's absolutely fascinating watching a fizzled propaganda coup from the right, and how limp they are without authority-figures telling them how to view the world. It's funny, in that synchronicity kind of way, that I made this post nearly 12 hours ago:

Dr. Mojo PhD: In other words, conservatives need and subsequently seek out authoritarian behaviour. As children, it's what provided them comfort in hostile environments. They literally need to be told what to think. He cannot be shamed because he is a person who is incapable of feeling shamed unless his comfort-giver tells him to feel so.


And now we see this, which fits the predictive mold perfectly of uncertainty in the absence of authority dictating emotion.

Furthermore, in that post there's a link to a release on a study I cite, which notes in part that conservative personalities feature:

- Dogmatism and intolerance of ambiguity
- Uncertainty avoidance
- Need for cognitive closure

And, again, we see all of that here.

They aren't sure what to think, and are frustrated -- intolerance of ambiguity, (need for) dogmatism
They are unsure how to handle this uncertainty -- as other Farkers have noted, the typical shills aren't here hectoring about it, and many of the commenters at Breitbart.com are quiet, preferring not to deal with something so confusing
They need to be told what to think to have their thoughts be "complete", and to eliminate the ambiguity that's a threat to them.

Un-farking-believable. Twelve hours ago, with no way to know this bullshiat would be Breitbart's "smoking gun", and an offhand observation in another thread ends up a perfect predictor of their behaviour.

And, as you said, they will never get it. It's both the best part (for our amusement) and the worst (for the fact that when we stop laughing, they'll still be here).

You are all missing the big point here:

How quickly can the Republican media (Rush/Hannity/O'Reilly) paint BuzzFeed as a commie pinko hacker elitist pedophile website and say that it makes the unedited footage from Boston somehow fake?

RyogaM: That thought experiment is intriguing. Would White sell Blacks to space aliens? If the ballots were secret? I've got to say, yes. They'd probably sell the poor Whites as well. And poor people would probably sell the rich people. And Blacks would probably sell Whites to the space aliens as well. And maybe some would even vote to give people away free. So, what does it all mean? People suck.


===============

-- I remember one on the remake of Twilight Zone of the "box" - open the box and push the button and some one you don't know dies and you get $ 200,000 . the people agonize for a week over it

MADTV did a spoof that was closer to the truth where seconds after being told they whip open the box and start hammering the button asking if they push it more then once do they get more money and every one in the room pushes it with the "mysterious stranger " shouting Stop stop you're breaking it .

And I think MadTv's version would be closer to the truth the Bell's Space traders , not only in America but almost any place .....I concur People suck ,

Except he was bragging about this for months, so as far as I'm concerned, it's fair game. He may be dead, but this was still his project. I'm not mocking him, but it would be poetic justice if his last great hit piece fizzled away into nothing.
