Dumbass Quote of the Day

I haven’t done a dumbass quote of the day in a while, but this certainly qualifies. It’s from lunatic Rep. Allen West:

During a Sunday rally with constituents in a newly drawn district he wants to represent, West accused President Barack Obama of wanting to enslave the American public.

“He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning, and having that title of American,” West said, according to a WPTV report. “He’d rather you be his slave.”

Yeah, that’s a comparison a black man should be making about another black man.

    Only racists and/or idiots would agree with Rep. West’s assertion.

  2. MikeMa:

    West seems to go out of his way to say things so completely ignorant as to be a walking poe.

    Communists in congress.
    Americans are Obama’s slaves.
    Supporting Obama a threat to the gene pool.
    Censor the news.

    A tool for the GOP future. Stupid, mean and proud.

  3. Modusoperandi:

    “No Obamacare!” (All of audience cheers), “No more Medicaid!” (Most of audience cheers), “No more unemployment insurance!” (Retired portion of audience cheers), “No more Social Security!” (Complete silence), “I mean, ‘no more SS for those under 55″ (Audience cheers)

  4. Azkyroth, Former Growing Toaster Oven:

    Where did the Repugs find another black man?

  5. dan4:

    Not that it invalidates the stupidity of West’s comment, but Obama is actually half-black.

    ed, how cute, you go after anyone who doesn’t go by your politically correct rules. Allen West is probably one of the most intelligent and honest politicians in this country. He also spent 22 years in the U.S. Marine Corps, but I know that means nothing to an overweight lazy liberal progressive. I also happened to notice that Conservapedia struck a nerve with you in the exact same way I did. You need to accept the fact that if you are a “public” radio host, then you’ll be critiqued from time to time, and YES even mocked, so you need to wipe your tears dry everytime you’re mocked by someone who has the nerve to call you out dude! By the way, starting this fall me and another guy are going to have our own radio gig on WOCR, now I know what you’re thinking “we won’t have many listeners”,….well…you’d be wrong I have friends down in Alabama and Arizona who have spread the word about our upcoming radio gig, and it will leave me and my friend with a good start so far as audience size goes. Because as you know even though they’re all the way down south they can still live stream it from the internet. And you along with others at WPRR will be some of the first biased losers that I expose to our audience. Have a nice day!

    This is undoubtedly true…but not in the way you think.

    By the way, starting this fall me and another guy are going to have our own radio gig on WOCR

    I hope you speaks better than you writes.

  8. lancifer:

    TCC,

    “I hope you speaks better than you writes.”

    I spewed a little beer from my nose when I read that.

    I like the way Chrisstab made no attempt to organize his ineffectual screed into paragraphs. The occasional use of punctuation and capitals is better than no punctuation and all caps I suppose.

  9. Markita Lynda—damn climate change!:

    Chrisstaab sounds like a commenter I get on my FB page–different person, though. Do they all chant the same misconceptions together?

  10. chrisstaab:

    Well you see, I know how to use good grammar, I just don’t get all crazy about it when I’m just writing responces to a blog that doesn’t even have the slightest bit of credibility, and all the bias in the world. And our radio show in the fall will consist of discussions on several issues, as well as my co-host and I exposing the biased hacks (Ed Brayton,Jeremiah Bannister,Rachel MaddCow,Mike Malloy etc.) to our listeners.

  11. chrisstaab:

    Anything else?…Or are the attacks on my grammar the only thing you guys have against me?

  12. chrisstaab:

    And by the way Markita Lynda I wish you would tell me what “misconceptions” I have ever taken part in?

  13. Dan J:

    chrisstaab spewed:

    Anything else?…Or are the attacks on my grammar the only thing you guys have against me?

    *yawn*

    Boring troll is boring.

  14. chrisstaab:

    Well Dan J,…..then why did you bother commenting then?

  15. chrisstaab:

    I also love how Ed just kind of lets his little henchmen on here comment on all of my comments, while he does nothing. How funny. LOL

  16. TCC:

    Anything else?…Or are the attacks on my grammar the only thing you guys have against me?

    Criticizing you on substance would imply that there is substance to be criticized.

  17. TCC:

    Staaby, we prefer “goon squad.” You should see our union meetings.

  18. Dan J:

    TCC mentioned:

    Staaby, we prefer “goon squad.” You should see our union meetings.

    Which reminds me… must bake cookies for next union meeting.

    Staaby blathered:

    Well Dan J,…..then why did you bother commenting then?

    Seriously, Staaby; we find you pathetic. You’re a young guy who doesn’t seem to have emotionally matured past the point most of us reach by age 12. If you had any interesting arguments to put forth, most of us would love to hear them. Unfortunately, you never seem to get past, “You’re a fatty!”

    Your comments regarding Ed’s reaction the the Conservapædia entry seem to indicate that you failed to either read or comprehend his post about it. The question I have is, “Are you horribly ignorant, horribly dishonest, or both?”

  19. chrisstaab:

    Well if you can’t find the substance in my responces then you need to learn how to read sir. When my co-host an I start to reveal the lies created by the left in the fall season on our radio show, please don’t get too upset. One of the topics we’ll be starting with is the highly disfunctional homosexual lifestyle. Plus we already have willing listeners out of state and even a couple in state, but far more out of state, it’s perfectly normal for Ed to feel jealous.

  20. chrisstaab:

    Mr. Dan J isn’t going to make any progress. I will have my time on the radio mic starting in September, and I will be using all of my evidence and sources against the lefties at that time. People like Dan J. are just upset because they feel they cannot match what I’ve got! So sorry you feel that way sir.

  21. TCC:

    Plus we already have willing listeners out of state and even a couple in state, but far more out of state, it’s perfectly normal for Ed to feel jealous.

    I’m sure Ed is practically green with envy.

  22. chrisstaab:

    As well he should be. We are going to have a great audience. It’s kind of funny,….because 3 out of….like 30 people already want to call in during the first airing as they have told me this. But I told them to keep in mind that I want libtards to be able to call in as well, so that I can make them look and feel stupid on the air.

  23. dan4:

    @6: “He spent 22 years in the Marine Corps…”

    When did Ed state/imply anything to the contrary?

  24. Dan J:

    People like Dan J. are just upset because they feel they cannot match what I’ve got! So sorry you feel that way sir.

    Wow. Hopelessly spaced out and dangerously unaware. Good luck in life, Staaby… you’re going to need it.

  25. dan4:

    @19 “…disfunctional homosexual lifestyle.”

    Major criticism: All homosexuals have the same lifestyle? Minor criticism: The word is actually spelled “dysfunctional.”

  26. chrisstaab:

    again with all the grammar crap dan4,…I’m sure you’ve mispelled words before when typing fast,….well…maybe you don’t type as fast as I do. But anyways, Dan J, I don’t need luck, because with people who think like you, I don’t think it will be that hard for me to make it to the top, so to speak.

  27. dan4:

    @26 “…mispelled…”

    LOL!

  28. TCC:

    We are going to have a great audience. It’s kind of funny,….because 3 out of….like 30 people already want to call in during the first airing as they have told me this.

    I try not to use language like this, but…this made me lol.

    Also, note that what I did in that last sentence is the proper use of ellipsis points…twit.

  29. Modusoperandi:

    Any nation where West is “probably one of the most intelligent and honest politicians” is doomed. Doomed, I say!

  30. shockna:

    So, chrisstaab, care to share any of the “lies” you’ll be exposing, or any of the particular viewpoints you’ll be espousing?

    Or will it just be the generic right wing raving about the super-free-and-totally-not-abusive-market, ebil guvmint, dern homosheckuals, and about how the rich shouldn’t have to pay taxes, but the extremely poor should pay more?

    The claims of a “dysfunctional homosexual lifestyle” lend you absolutely no credibility.

    I think I’ll call in, if only to shred your entire viewpoint over the air. What’s the name of the show?

  31. slc1:

    Re chrisstaab @ #6

    Allen West is probably one of the most intelligent and honest politicians in this country.

    He’s right up there with James Inhofe, Michele Bachmann, Steve King, Jim DeMint, Sarah Palin, and Ken Cuccinelli. All together, their IQs don’t add up to the triple digits.

  32. matty1:

    OK, I’ll have a go at the substance of Chrisstaabs post instead of the grammar. I see three main claims in there.

    1. Allen West is more honest than any other politician because he served in the US Marine Corp.

    Firstly, is he really the only politician with this background and second how does his military record tell us anything about his honesty in his political career? I’d also question what honesty has to do with being a dumbass, you can be honest and stupid.

    2. Ed Brayton is overweight.

    He has admitted as much himself and that fact says nothing about anything else. Do you really want to discuss health issues?

    3. You will have a radio show soon that at least 30 of your friends are going to listen to and which will expose the shocking fact that bloggers are biased towards their own opinions.

    Couldn’t be more pleased for you, feel free to let us know when the podcast is available.

    Did you have any more substance?

  33. chrisstaab:

    I think it’s funny how all of you only have these so called come backs that are subjective at best, and some of you still continue with the grammar crap,…ok….cool! I hope some of you choose to call Mark and I when we’re on the air to discuss our right-wing ideas, which are far better than anything that your side has ever produced. The only thing I worry about is the left-wing rhetoric, because it will lower the IQ of my audience by 100.

  34. democommie:

    Chrisstabbedtrhoughthefuckin’skullwiththeicepickoftheburnin’stoopit:

    Allen West was in the USMC for 22 years and left as a LTC–not his idea, I’m fairly certain. He’s a fucking piece of shit and you love him, color me unsooprized.

    That someone like you, a chancre on the diseased penis that is the GOP, has a radio show planned is not something that will keep me awake at night.

  35. chrisstaab:

    Well you’re not awake anyways because their is no woman who would want you, and another thing, I would be careful with the violent rhetoric because while I do have 30 friends willing to listen to my radio program, 5 out of those 30 are cops. Just something to think about sir. ;)

    Well that statement is offensive, threatening, subjective, immature, and proof that you are an unhappy person who is living a life that doesn’t matter to anyone else sir, because you are a disgusting human being.

  38. Hercules Grytpype-Thynne:

    maybe you don’t type as fast as I do

    You shouldn’t let your typing get ahead of your thinking, son. Slow your fingers down and let your brain catch up. Of course, given the present evidence, this means you’d only get to post a couple of comments a day, but we all make sacrifices.

  39. Dan J:

    Pure comedy gold, Staaby!

    Well that statement is offensive, threatening, subjective, immature, and proof that you are an unhappy person who is living a life that doesn’t matter to anyone else sir, because you are a disgusting human being.

    Open mic night at the Funny Bone continues!! I think Staaby needs to research terms like irony and hypocrisy.

    Chris – for your elightenment & edification.

    You’ve got it pegged perfectly, Dingo.

  40. democommie:

    “Well that statement is offensive,

    your problem, honey, not mine.

    “threatening,”

    Really? in what sense?

    “subjective, immature”

    Absofuckin’lutely, dickface, absofuckin’lutely. The first rule of dealing with fuckbagtrolls is to treat them like fuckbagtrolls. You should be aware of this, going forward. Nobody owes a lying, deluded piece of shit like you anything like courtesy.

    “and proof that you are an unhappy person who is living a life that doesn’t matter to anyone else sir, because you are a disgusting human being.”

    Awwww, I’m so hurted by your taunt. Gosh, I may wind up crying.

  41. MikeMa:

    Chrisstab
    I assume you will be calling out the rushbo for his weight (and drug and fidelity) issues as soon as you clean the drool from your keyboard from this psychotic episode, right?

  42. Modusoperandi:

    chrisstaab “I do have 30 friends willing to listen to my radio program, 5 out of those 30 are cops.”
    Venn Diagram! Venn Diagram!

  43. kermit.:

    “He does not want you to have the self-esteem of getting up and earning, and having that title of American,” West said, according to a WPTV report. “He’d rather you be his slave.”

    The only way that most of what the wingnuts say approaches truth is to see it as projection. That is, when it says anything meaningful at all. Conservative policies for the last 30 years has been to reduce personal freedoms, transfer middle class money to the rich while destroying real wealth; working full time to demolish faith in government (“We can trust big businesses”); replacing standard English with newspeak, and science with doublethink; and establishing a police state.

  44. Modusoperandi:

    kermit, well of course it’ll look bad if you put it like that.

  45. JustaTech:

    So, Christ Staab, do you hate all women, or just liberal ones? I ask this question based on your decision to alter Rachel Maddow’s name to “Rachel MaddCow”, while not altering the names of the male “biased hacks” you listed with her. I am sure that Dr. Maddow doesn’t care, but I am interested in your mindset and what it might indicate about your own biases.

  46. caseloweraz:

    JustaTech, I was about to raise a similar point. There’s something indicated by altering names that way. It generally indicates utter contempt, going beyond criticism of the person’s views. In this case, since Dr. Maddow is one of the brightest and sanest people around, I’d say it’s likely to backfire.

  47. democommie:

    ” There’s something indicated by altering names that way. It generally indicates utter contempt, going beyond criticism of the person’s views.

    I know that you aren’t referring to my gentle jibes, aimed at the terminally skullfucked Christer Stabber, but thanks anyway.

  48. slc1:

    Just for the information of those still following this thread, fuckface chrisstaab has been given the heave ho by our host.

    Lancifer,

    Just for the information of those still following this thread, fuckface chrisstaab has been given the heave ho by our host.

    No! Reading his pathetic posts and the sarcastic replies was the most fun I have had in days.

    I was going to point out that he had found a way to combine his two favorite organizations in one pseudonym.

    “Christ” with a nice “SS” inserted to butch it up.

    I miss him already.

  50. lancifer:

    Hmmm, somehow I attributed slc1′s remark to me.

    Oh, well. I still miss ChriSStab.
