That’s My Middle Name; Don’t Wear It Out

The bitch is back and I am not talking about Elton John. I just saw Karl “The Bitch” Rove on FOX warning conservatives not to harp on Barack Obama’s middle name because it perpetuates the widespread (and accurate) assumption that conservatives are bigoted. I think that Bill Cunningham’s racist and inflammatory comments over Obama’s middle name are the worst thing yet to happen to John McCain’s campaign, because McCain not only had to denounce Cunningham, he also had to apologize on his behalf! Then Cunningham got all crazy furious about it and called John McCain “John Juan Pablo McCain” and then said he was backing Hillary Rodham Clinton!

I’m thrilled to watch everyone screaming about middle names and Cunningham trying to dodge being called a racist. This whole middle name issue is very simple underneath all the spin and the doublespeak. People like Cunningham are trying to speak to and for those misguided and unfortunate few in our country who believe that America is supposed to be for white people, and that immigrants should always watch their back because no matter how big our dreams are, no matter what we are able to accomplish, no matter how high we fly, we will never be ‘true’ Americans. He’s trying to say that since white people ‘founded’ this country, the only people who are allowed to run it should be white people. He is clearly a white supremacist, but he’s too chickenshit to actually come out and say, “Go back to where you came from!” so instead, he keeps pointing out the non-white ethnic names to make his point that we don’t belong. He’s a Klansman in ‘too sheepish to actually admit it’ clothing! And it’s great because it makes everyone assume all Republicans are like that!! ha ha ha!!! Bill Cunningham is so wrong, and what is truly awesome is he is taking down the whole Republican party with him.

  1. The clip on Crooks & Liars of Bay Buchanan trying to defend Cunningham’s use of Barack’s middle name sums it all up. I’d scream “Quit being such a God DAMNED disingenuous, spineless BITCH!!!” to express my feelings but, in order to *adequately* express how I feel, I’d end up blowing out my vocal chords and, well, I kinda need ‘em.

    Heh

  2. Of course, the whole “this country was founded by white people” bullshit conveniently neglects to recall the people of color, i.e., Native Americans (“native,” get it? they were BORN HERE) who actually settled America long before the Europeans IMMIGRANTS arrived.

  3. I live in Cincinnati where this ignorant, hateful son of a bitch resides. I have considered moving out of this area due to wastes of space like him but, alas, there are still good people here. So, I’m staying.

    I am not religious in the least (anymore) but I grew up Catholic. I don’t understand how most conservatives can call themselves “Good Christians” who “do the right thing” when most conservatives and Republicans in this area adore Cunningham and Limbaugh. And what’s so moral about their hateful, seething, wild, red-eyed rage over people who are just DIFFERENT than them? MY GOD! Is this what “morality” is supposed to be?

  4. It’s assholes like that guy who make me want to appologize on behalf of all white people. But it’s not just racism that he’s spouting, it’s nationalist bullshit. Racism Plus, basically. It means he gets to think he’s entitled to more opportunities than people of color AND the French.
