Bashing The President's Daughters: The Most Disgusting Part Of America May Be Its Freedom Of Speech

All I can say is, I surely hope these people don't travel to foreign countries. Bush made us look like assholes. Obama is trying to make America a statesman again. These people would make us look like neanderthals: When little Malia Obama wore a t-shirt with a peace symbol on it, little did she know she would incite the ire of some very, very upscale cretins. These comments were posted on the oh-so-dignified Free Republic:

  • What we now are sending the ghetto over to represent us. and if so who the hell is that flea bag who looks to be dragged from the trash dumpster.
  • Looks like a bunch of ghetto thugs. A stain on America..
  • These ‘adorable little angels' sat in Rev Wright's ‘church' and were spoon fed hate whitey/hate America for most of their lives.
  • the world must be laughing like mad right now at that we have this kind of street trash in our white house.
  • Its the sign of the American Chicken.
  • I am just hope this is a late April fools joke because this trash walking around the streets of Europe makes me cringe.
  • "Well we're movin on up, to the east side. To a deluxe apartment in the sky. Movin on up to the east side. We finally got a piece of the pie..."
  • If the kid starts making political statements then she is fair game. Wonder when she will have her first abortion.
  • Daddy better keep an eye on that thug. I'd hate for Miss Obama to be punished with a child.
  • They make me sick.... The whole family... mammy, pappy, the free loadin' mammy-in-law, the misguided chillin', and especially ‘lil cuz... This is not the America I want representin' my peeps

In addition, the thread includes a picture of Michelle Obama speaking to her daughter with the caption, "To Entertain Her Daughter, Michelle Obama Likes to Make Monkey Sounds."

And possibly the worst:

DIRTBAGS! All of them. Our WH is now a joke to the rest of the world. We have no respect and this is not going to turn out well, mark my words. We will be hit, and much worse than last time. We are now seen as weak and vulnerable. Ghetto and Chicago thugs have taken over the WH.

Certainly the lamest:

And quit picking on little Chacha & Malaria.

Remember, people, keep repeating: Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of...

The Christofascist "Golden Boy" Is Back: Ralph Reed Sets His Sights On A Kinder, Gentler Coalition


The man once dubbed the “right hand of God” by Time magazine is returning to lead Christians everywhere along the "right" political path.
“This is not going to be your daddy’s Christian Coalition,” Reed said in an interview to describe his new venture, the Faith and Freedom Coalition. “It has to be younger, hipper, less strident, more inclusive and it has to harness the 21st century that will enable us to win in the future.”
"It's got to be more brown, more black, more female, and younger. It's critical that we open the door wide and let them know if they share our values and believe in the principles of faith and marriage and family, they're welcome." Faith and Freedom Coalition.

Sounds harmless. But think: Who's Faith and Who's Freedom? I wonder what Tony Perkins will say? This country can't handle TWO politicos who get their orders directly from God.

Of course, I looked up Reed in wikipedia and found these tidbits:
  • In college, Reed wrote a column for The Red & Black student newspaper attacking the late Mohandas K. Gandhi. Titled "Gandhi: Ninny of the 20th Century." He was accused of plagiarism and had to resign his post.
  • He INTERNED for Jack Abramoff as early as 1981.
  • In 1987, Reed was accused of rigging an election for president of the College Republicans (Univ. of Georgia)
  • Reed's "born again" experience happened in, of all places, a Washington D.C. bar. He said "the Holy Spirit simply demanded me to come to Jesus". (What a crock - of Ages - sorry - couldn't resist it.)
  • In 1985, Reed got righteously arrested along with his compatriots during an Operation Rescue picket.
  • Reed was hired as executive director of the Christian Coalition by Pat Robertson. He led CC from 1989 until CC Reed led the organization from 1989 to 1997, achieving national prominence which included an appearance on the cover of TIME. He resigned and moved to Georgia after federal prosecutors began investigating allegations by the Christian Coalition's chief financial officer, Judy Liebert. At this point, the group's finances were collapsing, and the IRS and Federal Election Commission were investigating it.

Infamous Reed quote (the one he'll have to live down the rest of his life)

"I want to be invisible. I do guerrilla warfare. I paint my face and travel at night. You don't know it's over until you're in a body bag." -Ralph Reed (Norfolk Virginian-Pilot, November 9, 1991)
Another that smacks of just a little bit of hypocrisy:
"Calling gays 'perverts' or announcing that AIDS is 'God's judgment' on the gay community is not consistent with our Christian call to mercy. " (Active Faith)"
"Hey, now that I’m done with the electoral politics, I need to start humping in corporate accounts! I’m counting on you to help me with some contacts." - Ralph Reed to Jack Abramoff in an email messaged dated November 1998, several days after the general election (Washington Post, June 22, 2005)
And ABOUT Reed:
"I used to tell people he was going to be either President of the United States or Al Capone. Whatever he did, he was really good at it." - his mother, Marcy Reed
"He's a baby-faced assassin. He's silky smooth, butter wouldn't melt in his mouth, but he's a vicious guy."
-Former NH Republican Senator Warren Rudman

For years, Tony Perkins has taken up where Reed left off. How will Perkins react? Will he be willing to pass the helm of his ship to someone else?
