You want to know what happens when you call the first Black president a “racist” on national bug-f*** crazy teevee?
Glenn Beck, Lynchmaster
“Shhh. Ah hates niggraohs!”
A group gets angry at the latest insane hitler-speak (just substitute “Jew” for “liberal,” or “leftist,” or “communist,” or “socialist” in Rightie Rhetoric these daze and see if it doesn’t sound like Adolph — even old Pat “I defend Hitler” Buchanan would have to agree) and organizes a boycott. 50+ advertisers refuse to advertise on bug-f*** crazee’s teevee show.
But that’s not what happens. THIS is what happens.
Take a look at the ENTIRE blogosphere in an almost exclusively Rightie conniption fit about somebody you’ve probably never heard of! (Hint: He-who-you’ve-never-heard-of founded the group that’s boycotting bug-f*** crazee, but left it to serve in the Administration BEFORE any of this happened.)
Red is righties, Blue is lefties (a Greasemonkey plugin)
And, uh SAVE the file. It’s a testamentary document of WHO gets their marching orders straight from Oogie Boogie Central, and when their masters yell “Frog!” they reply “How high?”
Seriously. Not one of these a**holes ever HEARD of Van Jones a week ago.
Suddenly, the lynch mob is out.
I know this because I spent all day seeing this blogswarm, this MEGA blogswarm happening, and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out what the hell was happening. Then it hit me.
This is Glenn Beck’s payback. But they made a mistake, and tipped their hand as to JUST how coordinated this gaggle of paid internet goons actually is. It’s a lot worse than ever I feared.
If you think this is a “new” Republithuglican tactic, consider the last writings of White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster before he committed suicide on July 20 , 1993:
“I was not meant for the job or the spotlight of public life in Washington. Here ruining people is considered sport … The W[all] S[treet] J[ournal] editors lie without consequence.”
Here’s what Van Jones is quoted by the Kansas City Star as saying in a typically sleazy editorial from some Republithug a**hole*
“And Barack Obama is not an asshole,” … “So, now, I will say this: I can be an asshole, and some of us who are not Barack Hussein Obama, are going to have to start getting a little bit uppity”
[* Or, perhaps a typically gutless liberal, wh0’ll cut you loose before s/he even knows what you’ve done wrong. Because Democrats and Republicans share only two salient features in common in my experience: they both fight Democrats all the time and would never make common cause with one. Republicans defend war criminals. Democrats only defend perfect and spotless Democrats, and not even then, generally. ]
Here’s what our Olympian Editorial A**hole has to say:
Summation: Jones won’t and shouldn’t survive in this job. His radical statement detract [sic] from Obama’s hopes of shining a spotlight on the need to create green jobs.
The a**hole’s name is “Yael T. Abouhalkah” and he makes me ashamed to admit that I wrote for the Kansas City Star between 1989 and 1994.
If you think that this happened all by accident, stop reading now: you’re too naive and inexperienced in the Real World to be reading this, and does your mother know you’re using her computer?
This kind of stuff doesn’t happen by accident. Even huge stories don’t get this kind of MEE TOO! MEE TOO! kind of Beatlemania. No: the Beck to Bloggers to willing “Mainstream” media is clear, and we can trace the circuitry of a massive Right Wing conspiracy (which we knew about) to control all media debate through whatever thuggish means.
We just never realized how HUGE it was.
These are the bastards trying to choke the breath out of American debate. These are the perverts gang-raping the Goddess of Liberty. These are the traitors who claim that anyone who doesn’t think like they do isn’t a True American.
As if they’d know.
This is a high tech lynch mob.
Aimed at a Black man.
Who dared to get uppity.
Van Jones, Lynchee.
But they’re not racists. Just ask them.
[Note: Mr. Williams invites the inevitable Rightie trolls to post their “devastating” comments on HIS blog, where their “acid” commentary will be more quickly read and cause him to weep more intensely at their irrefutable “logick.” There, their four-letter invectives will NOT be taken down, where here, they will. Unlike his guttersnipe bloggery, the DD is a respectable blog. Thx.]
UPDATE 10:03 PM PDT:
Van Jones has resigned. End of line.
The Washington Post — formerly a great paper that I’m now ashamed to have written for — has a rather creepy story on the resignation. The commenters (remember, Washington DC is mostly a Black city, but you couldn’t tell it by the comments) are vicious Righties bordering on Jukey Kallikaks, who are even creepier.
MSNBC is reporting the following:
Environmental official had signed 9/11 petition, disparaged RepublicansBy WILL LESTERAssociated Press Writer*
updated 18 minutes ago//
WASHINGTON – An environmental adviser for President Barack Obama, Van Jones, has resigned amid controversy over past inflammatory statements, the White House said early Sunday…
A Democrat who disparaged Republicans!
What a terrible, terrible thing that is. (Considering that we’re called subhuman 24/7 365 on hate radio).
