How the fark do you get from this:

asked him how he would vote on a planned increase in property taxes.

To this???

According to the Rapid City Journal, Clayton responded by asking her how she planned to vote in the Presidential election.

"Should we deport you back to Kenya with Obama?" Alderman reportedly asked. "Are you even American; are you American?"


That's zero to DERP in record time.
 
2013-01-24 12:44:14 AM  
At least it was a real apology, not the "I'm sorry if..." bullshiat.

I'm sorry if you take offense at non-apology apologies.

Well, I do take offense and apology not accepted!!

Good day, sir!

Sadly, he'll probably still get re-elected by those stupid Rapid City buttfarks that will blindly rationalize that it's all her Kenyan fault.

... But don't you dare call them racist.

Escalated quickly? How about not quickly enough.

Seriously, don't half-derp us. We deserve better. Get your n*bongs out in the open, call him a damn dirty ape or something... show your true bigot colors.

Stop beating around the bush, you oxygen-poaching waste-of-father's-jizz monkey-f*cking imbecile - make your true heart beat out in the open.... pussy.

I know. Every f*cking morning at 4:45 I was reminded of that fact when I heard Al Green blasting out from the minaret loudspeakers.

"أنا في الحب معك."

Please, grow the f*ck up, Fartbanjo.

"I apologize for being a total dick. Please forgive me that I hate our President so much I assume that anyone who even mentions elections has to be black."

does she have a accent or something?
 
2013-01-24 04:27:25 AM  
He should resign, actually.
 
2013-01-24 04:35:49 AM  
"I apologize to the KOTA reporter, I apologize to everybody on this council for any discord that I might have caused, I apologize to the city staff who had to spend their valuable time taking care of this, I apologize to the citizens of Rapid City."

So... he's sorry that he was rude to the reporter and sorry for the trouble he's caused the council, but not for being a racist.

I suspect the only thing he's learned from this is to be more clandestine about his hatefulness and racism.
 
2013-01-24 04:38:30 AM  

whidbey: He should resign, actually.


I agree... and seek professional help dealing with his racism.
 
2013-01-24 04:48:47 AM  
We've got your lions reporters, only in Kenya? Come to Kenya we've got reporters?

JohnnyC: whidbey: He should resign, actually.

Resign yes, but the fact that you even suggest he needs professional help for racism is more disturbing than his racism.

Don't associate with racists and don't do business with them. Where they are in power, make your voices known.

is the media REALLY going to put out an article every time some pissant politician in a podunk town or some bald white kook in a double wide says something retarded about Obama?

It's like the media is deliberately trying to keep us riled up with one stupid article like this after another. LIke we really need to know every time some jackwagon opens his pie hole.

Yes, stupid people prefer republicans over democrats. We know that already! ENOUGH!!!!!

TV's Vinnie: is the media REALLY going to put out an article every time some pissant politician in a podunk town or some bald white kook in a double wide says something retarded about Obama?


so you're upset that a site for journalists, picked up on a local story that involved a journalist?

yeah. damn the media for reporting what politicians do and say. They should do their real jobs and report the sports scores.

He was so sorry, he didn't even bother to find out her name.

Every dickhead who ran for dogcatcher is not worthy of national news every time they diss Obama.

What's next? HOA directors and grade school hall monitors getting press by talking smack about Obamacare?

"I apologize to the KOTA reporter, I apologize to everybody on this council for any discord that I might have caused, I apologize to the city staff who had to spend their valuable time taking care of this, I apologize to the citizens of Rapid City."

In other words, "I'm sorry anyone thinks this is a big deal."

What an asshole.

Lionel Mandrake: At least it was a real apology, not the "I'm sorry if..." bullshiat.


Put the brakes on that and look at this again:

I apologize to everybody on this council for any discord that I might have caused

Perhaps it isn't a "sorry if" thing, but he's still pulling the "okay, I may have farted in the elevator but we all fart sometimes" thing.  For a bunch of people who are skeptical about it, right wingers really pull their own evolution through everybody else's nose.
 
2013-01-24 05:39:22 AM  
I totally misread the headline as "rabid city councilman," which would have made perfect sense.

My dad lost his wallet 35 years ago. someone found it and returned it to him. local paper did an article on it, local news station seen it, did their own story in it. It later ended up on huffpo and the daily mail. complete with big long 400 comment long threads about it.

It's not a conspiracy to make you hate republicans. It's how the media fills up space/air time. It just happens that there are more dumb as shiat republicans than there is old guys getting their wallets back after 35 years. deal with it.

It's the gaping maw if the newsotainment advertorial complex.

Fark likes to get double-dip on hating on it, while profiting from it.

I bet he sat there smugly, basking in his mastery of debate.

Personally, I thought it was just that.

"I apologize to everybody on this council for any discord that I might have caused"

Might have? You essentially told a black woman to "go back to Africa" and she took offense and filed a formal complaint. You didn't maybe cause discord. You irrefutably caused it. Farking dick.

/"you" meaning the farkwad in TFA, not personally directed at Lionel Mandrake

It wasn't national news, it came from the local ABC station. Why wouldn't they report on local politics?

Thank you for that valuable piece of Facebook Wisdom.
 
2013-01-24 07:56:50 AM  
FTFA: Alderman, who was also investigated by the city council for comments he made about a fellow council member, claims that he does not watch KOTA and did not know Walker was black.

That's doesn't matter asshole. Even if she wasn't black, why the fark were you questioning her citizenship and asking if she was voting for Obama?
 
2013-01-24 07:57:38 AM  
Has she released her long form birth certificate?
Have the pixels been checked on it if she has?
 
2013-01-24 07:58:14 AM  
So, I'm assuming this guy was drunk off his ass when he answered the phone call?

2013-01-24 08:02:49 AM  
Did they ever find out how he voted on the property taxes?
 
2013-01-24 08:05:26 AM  
I'm sorry if you're offended that I'm the real racist for noticing the racism that wasn't there.
 
2013-01-24 08:07:51 AM  
He had no idea she was black when he suggested she be deported to Kenya.

Seems legit.

2013-01-24 08:16:56 AM  
Yeah, like the racist shiat-kicker is actually sorry he said that...

Though, I'm sure he's sorry the community found out about his ignorance, at any rate.

These people are cowards, who don't even have the strength of their fark-up, backwards convictions.

Why don't you just stop asking questions and go back to whatever jerk-off country it is you came from. Thanks.
