Wiles: Shutdown is Racist Plot Against White People


Rick Wiles of TruNews has once again managed to rise above the din of the merely idiotic rhetoric of the right wing and show them how to really do the absurd and the hyperbolic. The government shutdown, he says, is a racist plot by Obama against white people.

“Is the racist Obama administration specifically targeting conservative white people for shutdowns and evictions? I really think so. I think he is deliberately trying to provoke an outbreak of anger.”

“Have you noticed that the only people being shut down or evicted are white Americans?” Wiles asked, saying that white veterans are getting the shaft while Obama is helping black welfare recipients. “Please tell me how all those welfare people living in federally-owned housing complexes are still there during the shutdown?”

He claimed that if the government shutdown closes national parks then it should result in the closure of the White House too: “And what about Barry Soetoro and his little wifey Michelle? They’re living rent-free in a federally owned house at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Somebody ought to remove them, send some National Park Service police officers over there to remove the Obamas, shut that place down too.”

Now that is how you make yourself sound like a moron.

    I really find it astonishing, just how willfully ignorant so many Americans are of how our government works. If the President was powerful enough to just shut everything down, then why have a Congress at all? Is this skidmark on the nation’s underwear really admitting that the people he supports in the House of Representatives are parasites with purpose whatsoever?

    If you were to point out it’s constitutionally prohibited to reduce the President’s compensation or emoluments during his tenure, I half expect Wiles would implode into a singularity of self-contradictory stupidity.

    200 people were arrested during an pro-immigration protest on the National Mall, including Congressman Charlie Rangel. I’m sure he will be tickled pink to know he has officially been designated an honorary White American.

    The President is just squatting in the White House, like he wasn’t elected and he doesn’t work there?

    Not why would the President want to punish white folks when he’s half frigging white himself. Guess that half doesn’t overcome the haters.

    Is he actually saying that only conservative whites are veterans? Or that only conservative whites visit national parks? Or that only conservative whites are government employees?

    Mr Wiles, I’d like to introduce you to a concept called reality.

    Pah! Typical Obama! First he rams Obamacare down our throats, then when Real Americans™ stop him he lashes out and mildly inconveniences some white people!

    “Please tell me how all those welfare people living in federally-owned housing complexes are still there during the shutdown?”

    Yes, it’s unfair that middle class white people are slightly inconvenienced unless we also make poor people suffer terriblyl.

    Well, I actually kinda agree with him. If you are going to shut the federal government down, shut the whole friggin thing down. Like Napoleon once said, if you go to war, don’t be a pansy ass about it. Go to war!

    No mail, no air traffic controllers, no FDA, no EPA. And what’s with this getting paid whilst on furlough? Passing a law to make death benefits for the military families that are suffering the loss of their life partner? Hell no, I say.

    The Tea Party doesn’t have any guts. They aren’t ideologically pure enough for me!!

    One thing they really should add is that during any shutdown the salaries of elected officials are the first thing to be cancelled and the last thing to be reinstated afterwards.

    David @11: Well, technically the mail supports itself, so that could stay open, but why not that giant, money sucking “public works project” known as the national highway system? Let’s show *that* down and watch the Tea Party explode. (In their own homes, of course. They won’t be able to get anywhere else.)

    It’s obvious: He’s white on his mother’s side. Only a man who’s white on his father’s side would feel allegiance to the white race.

    It’s like those people from Charon “in the uncharted, southern part of the galaxy.” Some are white on the left side of their face, and black on the right. Those are the wrong kind of people. You have to be black only on the left side of your face to join the elite of Charon.

    @12 – they can’t, it’s unconstitutional. Like the President, Congress can’t change their own pay (for the current term).

    But if it helps, political appointees are treated like regular civil servants (some are essential, some aren’t, depending on job function)
