Whatever Happened To Free speech?™

He called him Norwegian?

That seems a little unnecessary.
 
2014-05-19 04:45:01 PM  
He will not be missed.
 
2014-05-19 04:45:08 PM  
To be fair, it was his naive honesty that allowed him to double down and insist that Obama is indeed a Norwegian.  Up to that point, he just assumed most white people thought like he did.

sigdiamond2000: Whatever Happened To Free speech?™


this will be the main topic on hannity tonight, i'm guessing.

It's a really good thing there's no racism left in the United States, because otherwise this really could've been taken the wrong way.
 
2014-05-19 05:00:48 PM  
Norwegian please.

Seriously, this is the only n-word joke I am allowed, as a cracker-ass white girl, to post. Maybe.

Hopefully?

An 82 year old racist cop?

Fox News just hired him as a commentator.
 
2014-05-19 05:51:53 PM  
And Obama kills another job.

Thanks, Obama.

Overzealous bigot cop.  Non-story.

That's nothing, you should have heard what he said about President Fjord.

Damn, got filter p0wned. I made the obvious South Park reference about people who annoy you.

"I believe I did use the term "fart stain" to refer to Mr Copeland. For this, I do not apologize - he meets and exceeds my criteria for such."

"I believe I did use the 'N' word in reference to the current occupant of the Whitehouse," Copeland said in an email to his fellow members of the three-person police commission, according to the Associated Press. "For this, I do not apologize - he meets and exceeds my criteria for such."

You know what, I have to give this guy some credit here for his blunt honesty. It's actually kind of refreshing to see that he didn't just give one of those standard fake "I'm sorry if I offended you" non-apology apologies.

He may be a horrible racist, but he did something that most horrible racists nowadays are too cowardly to do: openly declaring his bigoted views and standing by them.

Whoa, meets AND exceeds. He's not just black, despite being half white, he is a black president, and Obama is the blackest of the black, or rather the great white black president... blackest...master.

According to the Supreme Court, the only form of racism in the US is calling a black person the N-Word when they don't deserve it.

Scans the Bill of Rights. Nope, nothing in there about "Freedom from consequences".

Well hey there, commissioner! Hope retirement's treating you well.
 
2014-05-19 06:19:23 PM  
He took the easy way out. At age 82, his options were resign or die.
 
2014-05-19 06:21:53 PM  
I've heard that Norwegians love fried chicken and watermelon.

I'm glad somebody else observed this, because (I'm a little ashamed to say) that was one of my initial thoughts. The "meets and exceeds" line is a hoot.

Still, good riddance. At least it was in New Hampshire and not Alabama.
 
2014-05-19 06:23:45 PM  
I'm not certain Farkers have much of a right to complain about this guy after that "Sum Ting Wong" headline got greenlit earlier today.
 
2014-05-19 06:29:04 PM  
was it the "N-word" ending in "er" or "a"?

who knows, maybe this 82 year just considers Oobma a "brother" and was trying to appeal to the younger audience.

I think he just made the mistake of speaking outside the echo chamber.  He is probably still in shock that people reacted so negatively to him.
 
2014-05-19 06:36:13 PM  
At his age, he was probably having a flashback to his childhood days...during the Civil War.
 
2014-05-19 06:37:06 PM  
Now he'll get a fat pension for being the police chief of some podunk N.H. hamlet. We all should have it so rough.
 
2014-05-19 06:43:20 PM  
So he called him the southern dialect version of "Negro"? What's the big deal? What if he had called Obama an asshole? Could he still keep his job?

Noam Chimpsky: So he called him the southern dialect version of "Negro"? What's the big deal? What if he had called Obama an asshole? Could he still keep his job?


Okay, to all the people who still waste their time responding to Noam Chimpsky under the assumption that he's serious, may this be the once and for all confirmation that he's an obvious parody troll account exploiting Poe's law.

So please, stop wasting your time.

Monual: I'm not certain Farkers have much of a right to complain about this guy after that "Sum Ting Wong" headline got greenlit earlier today.


I'm not certain you're being serious, but "Sum Ting Wong" doesn't have quite the historical gravity as the n-word.
 
2014-05-19 07:05:27 PM  
Racists??

in NH??

now that is a stretch.
 
2014-05-19 07:17:11 PM  
I am genuinely shocked it took 6 years for a politician or news anchor to drop the N word.
 
2014-05-19 07:18:20 PM  
Was that wrong? Should he not have done that?

We do. All that aquavit and lutefisk is just racial stereotyping.

Agreed. I hold no illusions that racism will ever go away. All I ask is that racists and bigots are honest about their beliefs and quit using dog whistles and coded language. Say what you mean, mean what you say. I'll never agree with you, but I could at least respect your honesty.

How come that question made you so upset? It might be useful for some people to know how far they can go with invective against Obama and still keep their job. I don't remember Robert Byrd being pressured to quit his job after using the southern dialect version of "Negro". Granted, he didn't direct the word towards your special guy.

So he is calling a spade a spade. Northerners pretty much tell it like it is.

He resigned.  He wasn't fired.  Everyone calling him out for being a racist was also exercising free speech.  He didn't have to quit.

Yeah, but it got (rightfully) nuked. As in it doesn't even exist anymore. Didn't even go red.

it shouldn't surprise anyone to know the comments are vile

I'm sure Captain Dan will come by to tell us why this guy's job ought to be protected by federal law any time now.

My first thought as well. I had January 20, 2009 in the N-Bomb Pool.
 
2014-05-19 09:00:14 PM  
I'm so sick of tired old racists in this country. Just look at the comments from the farking article.
When one gets called on their CRAP, 50 more chime in with THEIR hatred. Grow up already, you old coots.
 
2014-05-19 09:06:31 PM  
This guy is probably most likely a Republican hero.
