: Morton Salt’s motto was “When it rains, it pours.” As your designated reporter of overt public stoopidity this week has been a two-prong gullywasher…… (1) an NC fem-Dem’s audition as NC’s own Sheila Jackson-Lee…. and (2) another “Duke Frat boys did WHAT?” over at the Gothic rockpile in West Derm. Meet this week’s Dumb & Dumber……
“Did they find that flag the astronauts left?” Everyone who catalogues “really stoopid statements by high profile politicians” has their favorite Sheila Jackson-Lee comments. This one is my personal favorite uttered by that infamous Democratic Congressional fool regarding the Mars Land Rover.
Wait a minute, AgentPierce. The MARS Land Rover went to Mars. The astronauts went to THE MOON. ???? …….. Hey, don’t shoot the messenger. I know that. You know that. Pretty much everybody knows that except Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) and probably Joe Biden…. and maybe Jean Farmer-Butterfield (D-Wilson).
OK, I’m being a tad unfair. Rep. Farmer-Butterfield didn’t say anything stoopid about space travel. She confined her recent “SAID WHAT?” bloviation to the House debate over unemployment benefits.
If you get your “news” (cough, cough) from either WRAL or The N&O you haven’t heard what this babbling magpie said on the floor of the NC House this week. The reason neither WRAL nor the N&O quoted this goober-ette is because to have done so would have exposed her as “dumber than a dust bunny”.
Look, I “get” that the media holds AfAm elected officials to considerably lower standards than non-AfAm elected officials. I don’t get WHY the media does so. But they do. It seems incredibly racist and downright insulting to do so….. but maybe the media feels “they have to”. Insulting to AfAms and insulting to you – the general public.
I’ve always assumed when it comes to black public figures, their media sympathizers figures “Bless their hearts. They just don’t know no better.” With “friends” like that, who needs enemies.
Why do Sheila, Maxine, Cynthia and now Jean make these outrageous bloviations? There are two theories:
(1) The “…. don’t know no better” reason….. and
(2) Because, like dogs licking themselves….. because they “can” ….. and get away with it.
As is so often the case, the better story here is how the media composed their reporting to protect the Democratic dummy-ette. That she is as flat-out dumb as Jackson-Lee (or Cynthia McKinney or Mad Maxine Waters et al) is a given.
Jim Goodmon’s attack dog Mark “Binky” Binker had to tap dance all around Madame Farmer-Butterfield “Said What” without quoting her…. in order to preserve any semblance that this woman is sane. What “Binky” would not report was Madame Farmer-Butterfield bloviating:
“In my opinion, this bill will promote more people being in jails, prisons – yes, it will increase the crime rate,” Farmer-Butterfield told fellow lawmakers. “It will increase homelessness, domestic violence, alcohol and substance abuse, the need for counseling. And indeed it will cause more suicides and mass killings.”
YIKES…. all this babbling loonie left out was “male pattern baldness” and “bad breath in dogs”. Classic Lib/Dem hyperbolic BS aimed directly at a mouth-breather constituency…. which apparently are Madame Farmer-Butterfield’s “peeps”.
Oh…. then this nitwit proceeded to “push the wrong button” when she voted on the bill…. and, of course, DEMANDED the right to re-vote. The “dumbing down of America” moving at warp speed.
I hear Bill Barber immediately signed her up to perform at his next Fayetteville Street Race Rally & Fish Fry.
WRAL’s Binker knew, of course, that her blurt was waaaay over-the-top plum foolishness so he omitted it so as not to (further) embarrass her. Binker and his bunch do that A LOT with their Lib/Dem buddies.
THAT is exactly why God created AgentPierce and Carolina Plott Hound. To tell you “the rest of the story”.
The story here is not that this silly refugee from Sanford & Son said something outrageous. The story, as it often is, is how a partisan media PROTECTED HER.
Meanwhile….. over at Duke.
A Duke fraternity – Kappa Something – “had a party recently that got out-of-hand”…… stop me if this sounds familiar. No this one did not involve “a couple of insane strippers, etc” but did involve the partiers “making fun” of Asians. They all dressed up and behaved as negative stereotypes of Chinese and other Oriental-types.
Why? Dunno. Must be a Duke thing ???
That might be OK in a totally private situation but a Duke Frat Party promoted with fliers (with r’s instead of l’s) all over campus passed “private” from the get-go without collecting $100. Ergo….. Duke “Asians” and Asian sympathizers were bonkers….. protest vigils, indignant letters to the school papers, all the usual HOW DARE THEY stuff that college campuses were designed for.
Contrary to myth and legend….. Duke 2013 has more students from Mombai and Kyoto than they do from Newark and Morristown (those cities are in New Jersey). A drive thru the Duke campus is akin to a boat ride thru the Small World pavilion at Disney World….. without the endless playing of “it’s a small world after all”.
The privileged (and very very bigoted) Frat boys spawned from Limo Liberal Loins within a 50-mile radius of The Empire State Building are still a sizable contingent on the West Derm campus…. but not as much a majority as they once were. BTW…. NO ONE does abject bigotry better than Limo Liberals and their spawn. No body!
So all Hell broke loose….. the media surrounded Duke Chapel….. the frat was admonished…. everyone drew a comparison to “that other party” (the 6th year anniversary is next month by the way) ….. and the name Mike Nifong slithered back into the “news”. Yeeee HAHAHA.
Other than the above…. it has been just another “slice o’ heaven” week on the Internet.
