The Amazing Racists!

Pat Buchanan:

White men were 100% of the people that wrote the Constitution, 100% of the people that signed the Declaration of Independence, 100% of the people who died at Gettysburg and Vicksburg, probably close to 100% of the people who died at Normandy. This has been a country built basically by white folks, who were 90% of the nation in 1960 when I was growing up and the other 10% were African-Americans who had been discriminated against.

Tom Coburn (addressing Supreme Court nominee, Sonia Sotomayor):

You’ll have lots of ‘splainin’ to do.

Lindsey Graham (Samuel Alito confirmation hearing, January, 2006, referring to Democrats’ questions about Alito’s membership in the now-defunct group, Concerned Alumni of Princeton, which opposed women and minorities being admitted):

GRAHAM: If you don’t mind the suspicious nature that I have — it’s that you may be saying that because you want to get on the Supreme Court; that you’re disavowing this now because it doesn’t look good. And really, what I would look at to believe you’re not — and I’m going to be very honest with you — is: How have you lived your life? Are you really a closet bigot?

ALITO: I’m not any kind of a bigot. I’m not.

GRAHAM: No, sir, you’re not. And you know why I believe that? Not because you just said it — but that’s a good enough reason — because you seem to be a decent, honorable man. … Judge Alito, I am sorry that you’ve had to go through this. I am sorry that your family has had to sit here and listen to this.

Lindsey Graham (Sonia Sotomayor confirmation hearing, July, 2009):

Judge, I — I may be wrong, but every case I’ve seen by the Puerto Rican Legal Defense Fund advocated against restrictions on abortion, advocated federal taxpayer funding of abortion for low- income women. Across the board when it came to the death penalty, it advocated against the death penalty. When it came to employment law, it advocated against testing and for quotas.

I mean, that’s just the record of this organization. And the point I’m trying to make is that whether or not you advocate those positions and how you will judge can be two different things. I haven’t seen in your judging this advocate that I saw or this board member. But when it came to the death penalty, you filed a memorandum with the Puerto Rican Legal Defense Fund in 1981 — and I would like to submit this to the record — where you signed this memorandum.

Jeff Sessions:

Judge, there was a — apparently, unease within your panel. I — I was really disappointed. And I think a lot of people have been that the opinion was so short. It was pro curiam. It did not discuss the serious legal issues that the case raised. And I believe that’s legitimate criticism of what you did.

But it appears, according to Stuart Taylor, a respected legal writer for the National Journal — that Stuart Taylor concluded that — that it appears that Judge Cabranes was concerned about the outcome of the case, was not aware of it because it was a pro curiam unpublished opinion. But it began to raise the question of whether a rehearing should be granted.

You say you’re bound by the superior authority. But the fact is when the re — the question of rehearing that 2nd Circuit authority that you say covered the case, some say it didn’t cover so clearly — but that was up for debate. And the circuit voted, and you voted not to reconsider the prior case. You voted to stay with the decision of the circuit.

And, in fact, your vote was the key vote. Had you voted with Judge Cabranes, himself of — of — of Puerto Rican ancestry — had you voted with him, you — you — you could have changed that case.

Bay Buchanan:

Sonia Sotomayor is a gift to conservatives. But we must find the guts to exploit it. Sonia Baby needs to become the poster child of the Left. With her as point, we can strip away the scab hiding the real identity of those in power: anti-white male racists who support a radical agenda of massive illegal immigration, reverse discrimination and gun control. It is time we showed Americans we are ready to fight for them against the likes of Sonia Sotomayor and her pals.

Todd Tiahrt:

If you think of it in human terms, there is a financial incentive that would be put in place, paid for by tax dollars, that would encourage…single parents, living below the poverty level, to have the opportunity for a free abortion. If you take that scenario and apply it to many of the great minds we have today, who would we have been deprived of? Our President grew up in those similar circumstances. If that financial incentive was in place, is it possible that his mother might have taken advantage of it? Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice, if those circumstances were in place, is it possible that we’d have been denied his great mind?

Tom Tancredo:

If you belong to an organization called La Raza, in this case … which is from my point of of view any way … nothing more than a … Latino KKK without the hoods or the nooses. If you belong to something like that in a way that’s going to convince me and a lot of other people that it’s got nothing to do with race. Even though the logo of La Raza is “All for the race. Nothing for the rest.” What does that tell you?

Zell Miller:

Our globe-trotting president needs to stop and take a break and quit gallivanting all around. I think Rahm Emanuel ought to get some Gorilla Glue and put it in that chair in the Oval Office and say ‘Sit here awhile.’”

Rush Limbaugh (on Sotomayor):

The real question here that needs to be asked — and nobody on our side, from a columnist to a TV commentator to anybody in our party has the guts to ask: How can a president nominate such a candidate? And how can a party get behind such a candidate? That’s what would be asked if somebody were foolish enough to nominate David Duke or pick somebody even less offensive.

Glenn Beck
(on Sotomayor):

They’re just like, “Hey, Hispanic chick lady! You’re empathetic?” She says yep. They say, “You’re in!” That’s the way it really works.

Lou Dobbs
(responding to remarks from Condoleezza Rice that slavery was America’s “birth defect”)::

We’re living with the issue of race. We’ve gotta be able to talk about. And I can guarantee you this. Not a single one of these cotton-, ah, these just ridiculous politicians should be a moderator on the issue of race.

Jon Kyl (Sotomayor confirmation hearing):

[…] when you made the statement that’s now relatively famous. “I would hope a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion.”

So here you’re reaching a judgment that not only will it make a difference but that it should make a difference. You acknowledge that they made a big difference in discrimination cases but it took a long time to understand — it takes time and effort. “In short, I accept the proposition that difference will be made by the presence of women and people of color on bench and my experiences will affect the facts that I choose to see. I don’t know exactly what the difference will be in my judging but I accept that there will be some based gender and my Latina heritage.” You said that you weren’t encouraging that. And you talked about how we need to set that aside, but you didn’t in your speech say that this is not good. We need to set this aside. Instead you seem to be celebrating it. The clear inference is it’s a good thing that this is happening.

  1. Simply disgusting aren’t they.. every last one of them. You know if it was just one or maybe even 2 you could excuse it as maybe a fluke..but look at the list.. it is an epidemic.. they all are afflicted with it.. It’s so sad they can’t see what they are doing, or can see it and just don’t care.. I really think it is the last.

    • they’re just the tip of the iceberg. the racist and sexism is stunning. it’s what faux news is built on. they don’t even bother with the wink, wink, nod, nod anymore. it’s out there for all the world to see.

  2. Oh, yeah … as a white male in America, I can sure feel the persecution day in and day out.

    It’s such a rough life …

  3. this might be your best yet
    and i love you got Dobbs in……..

    and bay buchanan needs to be shipped to Somalia

    • thanks dcAp! 🙂
      there were so many to choose from. i could probably repopulate the cast just with faux news employees.

    • “bay buchanan needs to be shipped to Somalia”

      Oh, come on! That’s completely inappropriate!

      What did Somalia ever do to deserve that?

      • she’s one of the most horrible women on the planet. others, like bachmann and palin, are stupid opportunists, but bay is just evil and nasty. i don’t think she has even one redeeming quality.

  4. The only racist in those hearings is Sonia Sotomayor. It’s pretty brazen of her, you, and her liberal supporters to say (a) white men suck (b) white men will lose power (c) everyone’s better than white men and (d) how dare white men not accept that they’re going to be ground to dust under the new, liberal regime.

    • jeb

      Wow, I must have missed all those comments. Still it’s pretty sneaky of her to hide those real anti-white male feelings by following the guidelines of the law in 17 years on the Federal bench.

    • where did i put that can of raid? hey, mr. roach, next time you pass by, thanks!

    • Mr. Roach,
      After a close look at your avatar, your comment started making sense to me; i.e., vital kill zone down in your thorax; nothing in the vestigial protrusion on top of your exoskeleton.

      You must be an American cockroach, widely found around garbage of one type or another, or spreading filth and disease in one way or another. An insect that is programed to think of race in terms of color; not species. Like most insects, you’re deathly afraid of, well, everything.

      Unfortunately, since your perspective will always be from the lowest level— the filthy ground level backwardness of an ignorant fear-filled racist— you got nothing to say worth listening to.

    • Turn off the radio. Contrary to their absurd statements, Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity don’t actually present news. They had their stories about Judge Sotomayor written long ago. Out of curiosity, if she’s such a racist, why didn’t anyone object to her previous appointment by the elder President Bush?

      • i could just hug you, wickle! faux news had a script already in place for whomever the nominee might be. it’s like madlibs where they just fill in the name and particulars here and there.

    • distributorcap

      yep – the constant harping by Kyl, Cornyn, Miss Lindsey and Sessions about the wise Latina remark sure makes Sonia look like a racist.

      lets not forget about Sessions remarks about the KKK a few years back

      You must be President of the Pat Buchanan fan club

      • each time they mentioned the wise latina remark and got all agitated about it while she kept her cool, she looked wiser, and they looked like desperate idiots. 😆

    • KarenZipdrive

      Mr. Roach,
      I believe Sotomayor said, “Honky men suck. They have tiny penises and huge egos.”
      Yeah, right. Must be why she married a white man, you ignorant slut.

  5. jeb

    Poor Alito. He had it so rough. So what if he belonged to that group and then put it on his resume when he was seeking job with the Reagan administration?

    It really is hard to believe that we’re still putting up with this BS nonsense in this day and age. These people should be ashamed but unfortunately, they don’t seem to have a sense of shame.

    • i’m waiting around for their offspring to marry people who are not wasps like themselves. i love when their heads explode. you know, like they do when one of their kids or sisters or brothers come out as gay.

  6. Michael Hart

    Brilliant nonnie; but why did you go with undersized heads? Sure I know the answer; there would no room for any of them, then.
    Bay Buchanan is around the bend— maybe farther than Fathead Pat. But Tancredo— a Dick from my own state— is beyond loathsome in his stupidity; he doesn’t know a “logo” from a “motto,” and he doesn’t know how easy it is to uncover his lies about La Raza.
    And what can you do with pathetic fucks like Sessions and Graham— living proof that dementia can strike at any age; well, at least it’s progressive and incurable.

    • thanks mh! they don’t need big heads, because their brains are so tiny.

      i have a new theory. i was thinking that i’ve never seen pat and bay together. is it possible that bay is pat in drag?

      i despise tancredo. he’s the lowest of the low. i don’t understand why people like ed schultz give him a platform. he’s not too bright, and he just says the same shit over and over again, and none of it is true.

      as pathetic as lindseypoo and little jeffy beauregard sessions are, the people who keep reelecting them are even more despicable.

      • Tancredo gets put in front of microphones for the same reason that the big four in talk radio — Limbaugh, Beck, Hannity, and Savage — are big. People like their commentary big on vitriol and short on substance. “Real conservatism” right now is defined as hysterical hatred of the Left and everything related to it.

        He attracts viewers/listeners, so he’s good for business. Never mind how disgusting he is.
        Since the difference between Republican politics and a horror “splatter” film is sort of subtle right now, he fits right in.

        • distributorcap

          tancredo is like one of those giants poops that circle the bowl…..

          an endless stream of shit…..

        • i get that he goes out there as a fringe guy who spews the really radical stuff in order to carry water for the party. what i don’t understand is why they picked him. i tend to believe he picked himself, and he’s sort of a free agent. the reason i say that is that he comes off as rather dumb and quite effeminate when he speaks. i don’t think he’s who the rethugs would pick out of central casting.

  7. Dusty

    Nonnie, this is wonderful, a great piece of artwork from you chica!

    Like Beach Bum said over at my place..Bay and Pat are really the same one ever sees them together. A little cheap makeup and a nasty wig..and presto..its Patty turned into Bay! 😉

  8. jeb

    There was an article in the Dallas newspaper the other day outlining Kay B’s dilemma when the vote comes before the full Senate. She has to appeal first to the angry white men in Texas who will vote in the Rethug primary when she tries to unseat Gov. Goodhair, but if she does that she’ll have to worry about Hispanic voters in the general election.

    Of course she told the paper that none of that was an issue and she’d decide her vote on the merits. Oh look, a flying pig.

    • Jeb, think of how many Blue Dogs will face a similar Evan Bayh for instance. The unemployment rate is roughly 11% in Indiana. That isn’t as bad as some places..but it ain’t good and most unemployed folks have no health insurance.

      • i think that if any of them showed a trace of courage, people would vote for them, even if there are a few issues where they disagree. courage is not very evident in politicians these days. it’s the one tactic that hasn’t been tried yet.

    • and what about the wimmens? even though it’s texas, i would think that there are quite a few women who found the rethug questioning very insulting. they would never have asked half those questions of a man, hispanic or not. it’s all going to come down to turnout, and i think that governor goodhair is going to win hands down.

  9. Great post Nons, and the comments have been quite interesting as well!! Good comebacks!
