Trump, for one, said he plans to continue talking about what he calls "the place-of-birth issue." ("I think the word 'birther' is a derogatory term, created by a certain group in the media," he explained.)

Can't slip anything past this douche!

TRUMP BIRTHER, TRUMP BIRTHER, TRUMP BIRTHER, TRUMP BIRTHER

Yes this is the new talking point. People pushing the movement have decided that the term "Birther" is politically incorrect and by telling everyone its "offensive" they can remove themselves from the stigma of being nativist racist assholes. Too late. You bought it and paid for it years ago. You own it now and its not going away.

An ignorant, delusional nut bag by any other name would sound just as stupid Donny. Now go cry yourself to sleep.

You're just being intolerant to his intolerance. Which is doubleplusworse.
 
2012-06-05 11:43:01 AM  
Please, Donny.

Keep talking. Until November.

This new tactic moves the argument from whether their point of view is a valid one to victimhood.

Remember this the next time someone on the right complains about political correctness and the culture of victimhood.

It won't work. They've tried to move that goalpost before. "We're just asking questions1. Why are you making fun of us?"

1 Assumes the questions are valid.

Fine, I'll stop calling them Birthers and start calling them Racists instead.
 
2012-06-05 12:20:15 PM  
Isn't this pretty much what the teabaggers did after labelling themselves teabaggers and subsequently discovering that everyone was laughing at them and not with them? Birtha, please.

Fetch me the fainting couch.

He's right! Apparently it's the "New 'N' Word".

It's almost as if they've coordinated the defense.
 
2012-06-05 01:44:01 PM  
Racist works.

It's way more applicable really, considering that they've gone after Obama, Jindal, and Rubio and not Romney or McCain.
 
2012-06-05 01:56:03 PM  
Of course it's a derogatory term. It's intended to be. Stop acting like a complete lunatic, and we'll stop making fun of you.
 
2012-06-05 02:24:21 PM  
Yeah, Donald Trump says a lot of stupid things to get people to pay attention to him...
 
2012-06-05 02:27:14 PM  
Yes, it is derogatory. It is intended to derogatate derogotaty derogaters.

Donald, you should continue to push this issue loudly and proudly - as often as possible.
 
2012-06-05 02:40:08 PM  
Fine. Tea Bagger it is.

Teabagging Birthers...

Sounds like great band name.

meat0918: Teabagging Birthers...

Trump isn't even a Birther. He didn't pipe up until he discovered he could use it to his advantage.

At best he's an Afterbirther.

You're the real birther for thinking he's a birther.
 
2012-06-05 03:17:18 PM  
Of course it's derogatory. You deserve to be derided. You're stupid, stupid people and you should be cataloged so that future generations can mock your progeny.
 
2012-06-05 03:17:40 PM  
Yes, it is a derogatory term. You've earned it, along with all the other idiots who subscribe to that specific bit of stupidity.
 
2012-06-05 03:18:03 PM

That's right Chump! and it's intended to be a derpogatory term too!

The My Little Pony Killer: Fine, I'll stop calling them Birthers and start calling them Racists instead.


Yeah I'm ok with this.
 
2012-06-05 03:21:32 PM  
Should we go back calling them "Racist shiatheads" instead?
 
2012-06-05 03:21:38 PM  
He's right. It is a derogatory term. It's also literally the nicest thing I'm willing to call Donald Trump.
 
2012-06-05 03:22:23 PM  

sweetmelissa31: You're the real birther for thinking he's a birther.


I'm starting to question when this birther idea was created. Does that make me a birther-birther?

Your inane indignation is amusing,Toupee Parrott. Do carry on.

I'm just not sure the birther idea could have made such a big impact on society by itself. I'm a truther-birther.
 
2012-06-05 03:24:29 PM  
ok, racist it is then...
 
2012-06-05 03:28:32 PM  
Well Donald without the "birther" bs nobody would pay any attention to you at all. They just interview you for the LOL effect.
 
2012-06-05 03:29:15 PM  
"Birther" is incredibly derogatory. there are many, many words in the English language that are offensive. many, many huge words. This awful word makes my skin crawl. I am a very busy man with many, many irons in the fire. Many many huge irons. This word is deeply offensive to me and my many, many friends. Huge friends. Huge. Many many times I have heard this word and been shocked at its use in language. Huge language. many, many languages. I am a very busy man with many, many millions of dollars. Huge dollars.

Many many people find this word offensive as you should too.
 
2012-06-05 03:32:19 PM  
I'm going to stick with "birther," because if I have to call him a "farking nutball" it would be an insult to farking nutballs.

Headso: ok, racist it is then...


i think racist is a derogatory word used to dismiss people that are just asking questions. I'd like it changed to xenophobic.

This.

Are we SURE the Donald is working for Obama on this campaign.

Obama's birth certificate flew into the WTC 2 and that's why there's no real evidence of it.

Hey Donald, ignoring all facts to continue to point out that the president is BLACK is derogatory.

Yeah, this dude in Az compared it to using the N-word...

Wonder how the Black folks feel about that?
 
2012-06-05 03:54:03 PM  
In my day, we would string up Birthers by the nearest oak tree if they so much as LOOKED at a white woman.
