Any more conservative dog whistles and the Zodiac killer over here would have the entirety of the North Shore Animal League chasing after him.

With every quote in that piece, I kept thinking, "He can't get any more moronic", yet he was adept at continuously lowering the bar. It's a talent

Is he just making up shait now?   It's so hard to tell these days.

What the fark is the Zodiac speaking about?

Anything in particular, or is this just standard conservative "here are a list of bad things I don't like" batshiattery?

Not that I fully comprehend any of his rants, but the world would be a more pleasant place without him. Did I miss something? Have people been complaining about "White Christmas" being racist? Does anyone actually think it's in reference to white people and not snow?

I often want to thank the USA for taking Canadian toxic trash. A few more should convinced to join him, named Kenney & Ford. 

Kenney in particular is a fascinating individual. A premier who once threatened to sue the Jesuits for not being Jesuity enough, who believes that conversion therapy worked for him. He's a really special boy

Has anyone ever actually complained about either the song or the movie being racist, or is it just the Republican persecution complex reaching new heights of absurdity?

He's  trying to be proactive knowing he left his constituents during a deadly snow storm for the sunny, sandy beaches of Cancun, which he blamed his daughter for. He loves any kind of attention and seems to relish the negative kind.

Bing has been controversial most of my life, but as an artist, not because of his song. His predilection for beating the f*ck out of his kids took the shine off his star

I missed last weeks blm/antifa/satanic/communist meeting. Did we vote on white Christmas being racist? I thought it was just the aborted baby potluck.

lordjupiter: Is anyone seriously attacking "White Christmas"?  Or is sh$tty Wolverine just making things up again?


Yes. This month, Gen Zed in my family have been mentioning it in TikTok, and bring it up when it's on the radio. The song is being used to parody racists.

I ahven't watched the movie since something like 2000, because the alst time I saw it, the Black people in it were treated like total racist stereotypes, and I couldn't handle the racism. It made me feel too sad and angry. I got serious gross twinges up my spine. Jim Crow was a craptacular time.

I've no time this holiday season to spare a thought for or about Ted Cruz, other than to say:

Fark Ted Cruz. Fark him, his family, his ridiculous beliefs, his duplicitous bullshiat, his uncaring attitude towards his own constituents, his inability to see beyond his own wants and needs, his psychopathy, his bigotry, his hate, and his goddamned haircut.

What gets me is this: if he's Canadian, how the hell does he think he can run for President? Or has the coke wrecked his brain?

I think I just answered my own question...

Seems like he's just trying to score rightie points.  This has only been a thing a few times and not much of one.

The last time was a hoax:

https://scroll.in/article/906871/from-white-christmas-to-santa-went-crazy-an-activist-lawyers-list-of-controversial-xmas-songs


In 2014 some people tweeted things after the song was sung by a black guy too close to Eric Garner's death:

https://metro.co.uk/2014/12/05/uproar-over-claims-that-white-christmas-is-racist-4975940/


And maybe most ironically, it was banned when Elvis sang it in 1957 because it was too racy, not too white.  I wonder who had a problem with it then?  Probably not liberals:

I found his source
"BBC bans racist song White Christmas"
https://rochdaleherald.co.uk/2018/12/08/bbc-bans-racist-song-white-christmas/
Which also headlines like:

Farking conservatives just do not understand satire.

I have no doubt that you could find some random shiatty blog post attacking the song. It has had 200 views, 199 of which are outraged MAGAts.

Let me put it this way.

I lived in a small redhatter town, and was in a store when the Bing Crosby song began playing. Throughout the store, I heard several people loudly sing along to the line White Christmas - and nothing else. It was kind of creepy. And they gave special emphasis blaring out the word white.

Ted Cruz is virtue signaling to the oppressed folks who get dirty looks singing their white power version of an old tradition.

I actually believe Ted Cruz is NOT a moran, and his brand of idiocy is purely performative.  His Harvard professors objectively described him as a brilliant student, and if you look at his academic credentials, at least on paper, you'd be pressed not to think he's actually really smart.

This ultimately means his idiocy is a reflection of how he really feels about Republican voters.  Like he's deliberately saying the stupidest shiat he can muster because he knows they'll eat it up.

His seat is probably safe, but at least he'll never be President.

Ted's brilliant attempt to immunize us all against your own personal hell's crazy uncle's worst dinner table joke in the next two weeks has succeeded.  Vax on Ted.  Natural immunity.  Have fun wandering the airport men's rooms.

White Christmas, Blackface, and Minstrel Shows
By Jessica Mason Dec 7th, 2019,


"White Christmas" was a Berlin "jukebox musical" designed to stitch together many old Irving Berlin songs.

Many of those songs were previously used in Minstrel /blackface shows and movies but those connections were mostly whitewashed out of White Christmas.
