Hey Robert, I’ll get right on going to the back of the bus, sitting down, shutting up and getting in line for the fascist in charge when all those folks in Washington D.C. start acting like Americans instead of goosestepping bambi wannabees who think that not making waves for the selected resident is gonna keep them in power. I got news for ya, more than freedom is on the line right now.
Imagine a judicial nominee said “my experience as a white man makes me better than a latina woman” new racism is no better than old racism.
Robert had the WH response all ready to go:
“I think it is probably important for anybody involved in this debate to be exceedingly careful with the way in which they have decided to describe different aspects of this impending confirmation. I think we’re satisfied when the people of America and the people of the senate get a chance to look at, ah, more than just the blog of a former lawmaker, that they’ll come to the same conclusion that the president did.”
Blah, Blah, Blah!
Robert? RACIST, RACIST, RACIST, RACIST. Did I say it enough for you? Sonia is a racist, sexist, liberal leftie judge who definitely appears to have been groomed by the same people as Gumby to help effect change on a global level. I am not afraid of you because I KNOW there are more Americans that are getting more and more riled by the tsunami of sh*t coming out of Washington, D.C. Come on over; we’ll debate the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Okay, now that we have the racist label out of the way, let’s all start digging on what “The Powers That Be” are REALLY TRYING TO HIDE with all the deflection surrounding the racism event because once again Bambi’s administration COULD NOT VET someone properly. It’s there, it’s hiding and it probably has something to do with business law, international relations, and/or corporations.
Republicans? Michael Steele? Are you listening? Better stand up and fight this nomination. Just sayin’ ya just don’t know what is going to happen tomorrow.
I can already imagine the email I will be receiving after this hits the net…
Today’s Are You Freakin’ Kidding Me? Award goes to my state senate for passing “Islam Day” to be observed on September 24th, 2009 at a time when we are at war with Islamic Jihadists.
H/T to Atlas Shrugs for paying more attention to the state in which I reside than I do; probably because it doesn’t make one iota of difference what a few sane individuals think here. “We gotta vote for Obama, he’s a local boy.” Remember, this is the state that wants to establish it’s own sovereignty independent of the United States as a Hawaiian Nation with no military and an unarmed populace, (by design), that will lickety split become the territory of Japan, China, or Sweden (who already has a stake in this island chain). A few of my closer associates already know that I am shopping for a new state to live in, and I am sure the locals will be happy to see me go.
HONOLULU — Hawaii’s state Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill Wednesday to celebrate “Islam Day” — over the objections of a few lawmakers who said they didn’t want to honor a religion connected to Sept. 11, 2001.
The Senate’s two Republicans argued that a minority of Islamic extremists have killed many innocents in terrorist attacks.
“I recall radical Islamists around the world cheering the horrors of 9/11. That is the day all civilized people of all religions should remember,” said Republican Sen. Fred Hemmings to the applause of more than 100 people gathered in the Senate to oppose a separate issue — same-sex civil unions.
The resolution to proclaim Sept. 24, 2009, as Islam Day passed the Senate on a 22-3 vote. It had previously passed the House and now goes to Republican Gov. Linda Lingle.
The bill seeks to recognize “the rich religious, scientific, cultural and artistic contributions” that Islam and the Islamic world have made. It does not call for any spending or organized celebration of Islam Day.
“We are a state of tolerance. We understand that people have different beliefs,” said Sen. Will Espero, a Democrat. “We may not all agree on every single item and issue out there, but to say and highlight the negativity of the Islamic people is an insult to the majority” of believers “who are good law-abiding citizens of the world.”
The second AYFKM? Award goes to Senator Will Espero, who I swear must be portagee for his comment above. I am not a local hawaiian, even though I am now considered kaimaina, and I will state unequivocally that Hawaii is NOT a state of tolerance; far from it. From the first week that I lived here when local hawaiian women were spitting on my 3 year old and myself because of our white skin and red hair, to being called a haole bitch almost daily, to the continued stink eye and frowns I receive every time I walk into a bank or grocery store, Hawaii is NOT about tolerance or embracing different cultures. It is just more words with totally opposite actions. A great day in Hawaii is a day that I do not have to cross paths with a local, and put up with the reverse racism that goes with it. (And people wonder why I try to keep my identity under the radar.)
My last comment is rather a question; how much did Bambi’s travels here have to do with this occurring?
P.S. I wonder how this is going to affect our economically downtrodden tourism?
