Star Parker: Nuttier Than a Snickers Bar


Star Parker, self-declared former welfare queen turned right wing pundit, is prone to making pronouncements so extreme and absurd that even her fellow conservatives feel slightly embarrassed for her. Here’s a perfect example, during an episode of Hannity about black conservatives:

“When we look at who is behind this strategy, the liberal Democrats have not changed their M.O,” Parker said amid a discussion among African American conservatives on Fox News’ Hannity.

“This is not a new strategy, they used it during slavery. Remember, every time the word ‘freedom’ was mentioned and African Americans at that time heard about freedom — if you ran away, they would bring you back to that plantation — the overseer — the overseer today is the Congressional Black Caucus, their exclusive job is to keep them on the plantation, keep them uneducated, and keep them unarmed. And this was the same job as the overseer of the slave plantation, which was liberal Democrats.”

“They would take that slave, they would strip the skin off of him and make everybody watch,” she added. “And that is what they do to us.”

Criticism…having your skin stripped off…same thing, right? Tomato, tomatoe.

    And the “liberal” Democrats were doing all of that to maintain the status quo? It’s a shame that the parties didn’t have to change their names when they change ideologies.

    I’m throwing out my wingnut to English dictionary, it is apparent that it’s not that words have different meanings to these people it’s that they have no meaning at all.

    Not only is Parker using wildly different definitions for the words she uses, but her syntax is so badly borked, I can’t even parse what her statement is actually supposed to say.

    Does anyone have the slightest clue what that word salad was supposed to mean? I’ve tried re-punctuating it, but it’s still completely incoherent.
