skullkrusher: sdd2000: I seem to recall death threats to three young ladies just for one of them saying- "Just so you know, we're ashamed the president of the United States is from Texas." We collectively owe her an apology if effigy burning is acceptable.

you send Death Threats to the Dixie Chicks? Damn, that's farked up. You certainly should apologize.

Karma Chameleon: These people are farking dipshiats, and I personally feel hey should not be allowed to vote or procreate, but I for one am proud to live in a country where this type of thing is allowed to happen. That's kind of the whole purpose of freedom from tyranny, no?


They attacked an effigy. That's not freedom of speech, that's a threat of violence, and actually probably could result in a few FBI visits for good reason.

Allowing it to happen doesn't help anyone. Reasonable discourse can take place anywhere. Violence is not acceptable for a modern civilization.

All those Hindi-speaking libs in the US are very bad people for doing that.

That picture was taken in the US, right? I mean I wouldn't want to think that you were an idiot who posted a picture of something that happened in some other country for the purposes of critiquing Americans. Only a complete moron would do that, obviously. So, which city was that picture taken in? Probably LA or New York, right?

I would be shocked if any of the Conservatives who voiced outrage over the slightest insult to GW or Reagan would even show the slightest amount of concern about this. It will never happen because they are hypocrites and un-American traitors.
 
2012-07-04 08:59:26 PM  

dennysgod: Yeah i know they burned effigies of Bush during his administration but the big different was that back then they where done at organized anti-government rallies and usually in front of some sort of government complex where that kind of stuff belongs, not at some family orientated event.


Mmm, I think it was pretty classless then, and pretty classless now. Perhaps a little more so now because it was not at a political rally, but either case shows a lack of class or the ability to express much coherent thought beyond "I no like you, I burn you!"

randomjsa: FloydA: NFA: Remember back in the days of Reagan when Republican talk radio hosts where outraged at civilized criticism of a sitting president? They claimed it was anti-American and typical of the "Left".

That's different! Civilized criticism of a sitting Republican has no place in public discourse!

And irrational hate coupled with stupid stunts were completely justified when Bush was in office.

Yes they should take the high ground and be better than liberals were during the Bush years, but the only people who have a right to criticize them for this are other Republicans.


And now on top of being a coward and a post-and-run hatemonger, we can add predictable to applicable terms to describe you on here, because I called this post perfectly.

stupid Americans defending a textbook example of political speech on the 4th of July. What nerve!

Skullkrusher rushes to the defense of people whose rights aren't actually being violated. Thank heavens that we have skullkrusher to defend people with whom he might even disagree against all threats, imagined or fabricated.

what if the one imagining others imagining threats is you? Then what do we do? Oh, I know, chalk it up as another example of you being a dishonest nitwit. Yeah, that suits

What if the dishonest nitwit is you? Then what do we do? Oh, I know, chalk it up as an example of you resorting to insults when your intelligence fails you. So first impluse in your case.

no one noticed how you created an argument out of thin air and talked about imagined threats being defensed. Your secret is safe with me.


Go back and read what I wrote. You evidently didn't the first time. Perhaps read the second sentence and - get this - apply context from the first. See if you can figure it out instad of immediately being obtuse and insulting.

HAHAHAH, oh, wait... you're actually serious?

If a "liberal" (your word, which means anyone to the left of Caligula) pulled a stunt like this in the Bush years (incidents overseas don't count) it would have been the lead story on Fox News for a month. But yeah, go right ahead and claim that this should be handled by their own and the opposition has no right to complain.

This is a perfect thread.

The only reason that they could have done this is for racist reasons, right? If that is the truth, then why do people burn and stomp on effigies of non-black people? Are these people saying that the effigy of Hillary Clinton means that women should stay in the kitchen?

Considering a shiatton of comments in this thread are claiming this was a racist event, I had to speak my peace. Why aren't you jumping on them for avoiding the subject matter?

As for my opinion of the article, it protected political speech. If they want to burn an effigy of Obama, its their right to do so.

Also, people have been burning effigies of leaders for centuries. Now, just because a black man is in charge, its automatically racist?

Since it happened in Arkansas...at a rodeo...I am sure there was a lot of racial comments and overtones. I don't consider an effigy bashing in itself a racist act (unlike an effigy-lynching) but I am sure it was an event polluted with racism. And this is supposedly a family event.

Sure it is "protected speech", it was still classless and they shouldn't be surprised people think of them as a bunch of inbred hicks.

Most of them would never own people. They're like most of the lower-class dipshiat dittoheads who, through a steady diet of talk radio and right wing blogs, believe they'd be captains of industry if it weren't for them minorities and gheys, even though most of them don't have the intellectual capacity to become assistant manager at the Rib Shack.

TsukasaK: Wayne 985: If someone tells me that Obama hates America, I'd like to ask them, "Based on what?"

Having done precisely that, I can tell you that you won't get anywhere. First you'll get rehashed faux news talking points. Those debunked, all pretense of rationality goes out the window.

"I can't stand the guy, he's a Muslim for crying out loud!"
"There is NO PROOF that Obama is a Muslim. Stop listening to Fox!"
"I just believe that he is, and that he hates America"
"But.. Why?"
"I just do."

My mother is utterly convinced that this country will not exist in four years. This conversation above is repeated almost verbatim any time politics comes up in conversation.

I made a bet with her that, if it does, she'll stop watching Fox.

Here's hoping.


That's about what I get. You can't do anything about people who believe "I don't care, that's what I think" is a valid argument.

You know a bit about me. I am pretty damn progressive on civil rights. I am for marriage equality, transgendered changing their birth certificates to the sex they feel. I am also very harsh on birthers and truthers.

Yet, when I make a post about my economically right side, I get people accusing me of being a republican bigot who hates gays and believes that Obama was born in Kenya.

Playing upon stereotypes in this day in age should be obsolete. Not all southerners are racist. Not all southerners are white. Not all southerners are Republicans. There were most likely black people in that crowd due to the demographics of the south.

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." --President Theodore Roosevelt

hell, a friend of mine burned that asshole in effigy and I thought the flame colors were very nice.
I don't feel bad about being there either.
Hanging a figure in effigy is an age old practice, you can't pick and choose which are allowed and which aren't.
I don't know where this happened, if it was in school it wasn't appropriate, if it was during an organized protest I have no problem with it.



And you must remember all the criticism Hillary heaped on Obama during the primaries.....

One side does it, the other side does it. It's about time that lying tard in the WH was shown what the people actually think of him.

I think your complaints would carry a bit more weight if, once in a while, you would tell other Republicans that throwing acid and placing gunsights on political opponents was wrong, creationism is foolish, burning and lynching effigies is a bad idea, and nobody has a civil right to beat up gays and lesbians.

I agree with you that stereotypes should be obsolete, and I agree with you that civil rights are important for all. If you would, every once in a while, criticize the Fark Republicans as vehemently and effectively as you criticize the "libs," I think that you would be a very effective spokesperson for the right wing. But you can't really complain about the mote in your neighbor's eye until you've drawn the beam out of your own. Gnomesane?

As my tea-party step-father explains it: "People like Rubio and Romney are patriotic and love America, while Obama hates America and is trying to destroy it so the Muslims can take it over". So of course he can't respect the President. That would be un-American.

I really wish I had the patience to find one of these people and question them, purely out of curiosity.

If someone tells me that Obama hates America, I'd like to ask them, "Based on what?"


Based on this:
1. Increased the deficit more than $4 trillion, causing the first-ever downgrade in the U.S. credit rating and for the first time raising serious questions about U.S. financial stability.
2. Issued 106 new major rules that cost U.S. businesses $11 billion in implementation and more than $46 billion each year.
3. Blocked Boeing's new South Carolina factory from opening to assuage his union supporters.
4. Raided a Gibson Guitar factory for violating an arcane India law even though India does not believe the law has been broken.
5. Issued an "ambush" election rule allowing quick unionization and limiting an employer's ability to present reasons for non-unionization.
6. Restricted how companies hire unpaid interns, cutting the link between students and employers.
7. Blocked the construction of the Keystone Pipeline that would have given jobs to thousands of American workers, further reducing the domestic oil supply and forcing our ally Canada to turn to China as a more willing partner.
8. Cut authorization of permits restricting drilling in Gulf and slowed permitting of new oil drilling so our future oil supply will be restricted and gas prices will be higher.
9. Mandated third party certification for all manufacturers participating in the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star program, which has raised costs for manufacturers and created a disincentive for participation in the program.
10. Funded Solyndra and other unworthy companies, wasting taxpayer money but also discouraging other privately funded companies from entering the market.
11. Only moved on Bush free trade agreements and failed to enter one new free trade agreement, even while our competitors have entered many, making U.S. goods more expensive to export.
12. Pushed for passage of card check legislation that would infringe upon the rights of workers and make the United States a less desirable place to open a business.
13. Created a new rule requiring every employer to post notices on union "rights," (found illegal by a federal court in April).
14. Changed rules on unionization votes so the majority of employees no longer need to vote to unionize, allowing easier unionization.
15. Disparaged the city of Las Vegas twice, which led to an immediate and dramatic fall-off in hotel room bookings and hospitality jobs.
16. Proposed onerous restrictions on government officials attending trade shows, threatening vital cooperation between business and government to create jobs.
17. Mandated that every hotel swimming pool have special access for the disabled, causing pools to close or hotels to add expensive add-ons, hurting the hotel industry and employment.
18. Imposed a requirement that every employer with more than 49 employees provide health care insurance or pay a fine.
19. Allowed the United States to become the highest corporate tax nation in the developed world.
20. Required every children's product to undergo expensive testing, threatening thousands of small businesses that make children's products.
21. Demonized businesses and one-percent income earners consistently as greedy.
22. Increased the number of IRS audits of successful job creators while dramatically cutting audits of those reporting no income.
23. Proposed regulating gas fireplaces in homes, threatening a large segment of the market despite no energy rationale.
24. Failed to approve one new nuclear plant, increasing our energy dependence.
25. Defended EPA "strong-arming" of property owners by threatening fines -- March 2012 Supreme Court's unanimously rejected EPA position.
26. Ignored proposals of his own Bipartisan Deficit Commission and thus guaranteed further choking deficits and financial uncertainty.
27. Imposed a 2.3 percent new excise tax on innovative medical devices.
28. Imposed a new investment income "surtax" of 3.8 percent.
29. Raised the Medicare Payroll tax from 2.9 percent to 3.8 percent.
30. Required every individual to buy health insurance as part of his healthcare reform, which the Congressional Budget Office says will cost twice as much as the White House originally advertised.
31. Proposed a seven percent hiring quota for "disabled" workers in every job category for government contractors, creating a new expensive burden to doing business with government.
32. Expanded the definition of "disabled" to include people with diabetes and heart disease, among others, and specified new quotas for hiring under this definition.
33. Opposed "repatriation" of U.S. corporate profits made overseas (and already taxed), thus encouraging U.S. companies to invest those profits in foreign enterprises.
34. Proposed higher taxes for business-use airplanes, raising the cost of many U.S. operations.
35. Sought to give the IRS the power to license all tax preparers, discouraging entrepreneurs by raising the cost to enter the market.
36. Attacked the Supreme Court twice directly, undercutting confidence in the separation of powers.
37. Raided California medical marijuana facilities, harming entrepreneurs and threatening medical treatments.
38. Sought and signed the Dodd-Frank financial reform law with its hundreds of new rules and restrictions that impose billions in new costs on financial companies.
39. Advocated for the "Buffett Rule," which would discourage U.S. investment and barely dent the deficit.
40. Expressed plans to raise the capital gains tax, which would discourage U.S. capital formation and drive investment overseas.
41. Created new emissions standards for industrial boilers that may cost hundreds of thousands of U.S. businesses a total of $14.5 billion.
42. Pursued his campaign pledge to adopt electronic medical records, at an estimated cost of as much as $100 billion. The plan is already costing jobs.
43. Set new energy-use mandates for many products, discouraging innovation and consumer choice and raising product costs.
44. Imposed new restrictions on the number of hours driven by truck drivers, costing more than $400 million with no proven additional safety benefit and raising the cost of goods shipped in the United States.
45. Failed to confront drug company payoffs/rebates to doctors, thus raising the cost of health care.
46. Negotiated secret trademark treaties that are so secret their effects are unknown.
47. Failed to make government more transparent by restricting FOIA requests, according to the Washington Post, making review of government actions difficult.
48. Neglected to do anything about providing guns to Mexico drug cartels, which resulted in the death of U.S. Border Patrol agents, causing worldwide doubt as to U.S. rule of law.
49. Perpetuated the fraud of "green jobs" to sell and justify stimulus funds with little evidence to support the market for these jobs.
50. Investigated leading U.S. companies, such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Intel and Qualcomm, which encouraged other countries to do the same.

8. Cut authorization of permits restricting drilling in Gulf and slowed permitting of new oil drilling so our future oil supply will be restricted and gas prices will be higher.
9. Mandated third party certification for all manufacturers participating in the Environmental Protection Agency's Energy Star program, which has raised costs for manufacturers and created a disincentive for participation in the program.

Which of Obama's policies do you disagree with?

(please note, arugula, mustard, shirtsleeves, death panels, and broccoli are not, technically "policies," and OMG SOSHALIZAM can only count as a policy if you can actually define what the word "socialism" means and explain how Obama is doing anything remotely similar to it.)

I wasn't responding to you. I was responding to the poster who struck out "Republican" and left only "white". Apparently the Tea Partiers are pretty cool with black Republicans.
