How to NOT Prove, You're NOT a Racist...

Y'know it's bad when the crazies just don't know how fracking crazy they sound when they respond to the voices in their head out loud. Or in print.

Today's Crazy-in-Chief is Tea Party-Bagger, MarK Williams. A man whose previously said - without flinching or irony - that President Obama is a "Indonesium Muslim turned Welfare Thug In Chief"

And that Muslims are...

[R]epeat after me: Islam is a 7th Century Death Cult coughed up by a psychotic pedophile and embraced by defective, tail sprouting, tree swinging, semi-human, bipedal primates with no claim to be treated like human beings or even desirable mammals for that matter.

If you think his openly calling the President a Muslim/Non-human is a bad prelude to what's coming - you're right.

So the NAACP has got Mr. Williams all riled up because they asked the Tea Party to ixnay on the racism-ay. Williams first response was predictable.

WILLIAMS: You’re dealing with people who are professional race baiters, who make a very good living off this kind of thing. They make more money off of race than any slave trader ever. It’s time groups like the NAACP went to the trash heap of history where they belong with all the other vile racist groups that emerged in our history.

So you see, it's not like any of the tea partiers are racist - the real racists are the people pointing out their racism, like the NAACP - and apparently Barack Obama.

Here's Keith on this:

This sort of Racism-Double-Think is exactly the same thing that both Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck have been employing for years, "We're not the Racists - You Are for noticing how we repeatedly demean people of color for not being - more like us, White-Conservative people"

But this latest bit, just absolutely takes the flipping cake. Just follow along here as I attempt to dissect and decode this web diarrhia.

Dear Mr. Lincoln

We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!

Oh, see what he did there - he made a funny, or is it a turd stain?

Look, he said "Coloreds" - isn't that quaint? It's funny too since it's the NAACP - National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, not the NAABP (Nat. Assoc. for Advancement of Black People) or NAAAAP (Nat. Assoc. for Advancement of African American People).

(Frankly, that "Colored" thing doesn't bother me one wit, it's simply childrish - the big problem is actually rest of what he said)

He's saying that black people via the NAACP don't want to work for what they get (lazy), can't think for themselves (stupid) and can't handle consequences (irresponsible). Yeah, that's an excellent way to show you don't subscribe to blatantly racist bigoted stereotypes. Bravo, - who could possibly doubt your anti-racism bona-fides now?

Sure, I know he didn't say this about black people literally - just the Coloreds - and what he may very well argue is that he's just describing how the NAACP thinks, except that's just fracking ridiculous. The NAACP does not go around saying black people don't need to work hard, or that they need to be lead around by the nose and wiped up after like children.

The NAACP exists to combat ongoing racial discrimination and one quick glance at the FBI Hate Crimes Reports shows that phenomenon is a long way from being a thing of the past.

In 2008 the number of Anti-Black Racial incidents (2,876) outnumbered the total reported Anti-White Racial incidents (716) by Over 4 TO 1.

That's just one stat, but there are plenty more to be had.

Ongoing discrimination and Anti-Black Racial Bias is a not a manufactured dream from the NAACP or ACLU to stoke the fires of Black Resentment and Entitlement, this is what Law Enforcement Agencies around the Country are documenting and providing to the FBI to compile and report. Tell me again how "most of the Racists in America are Black or members of NAACP" Mark - go on, say it and continue to leave all doubt behind concerning the level of your abject idiocy.

You see to Williams incidents like what recently happened to Oscar Grant are nothing but Wolf Cries. Exaggerations. Phantasms. And there's nothing inherently racist or bigoted about SB1070 (except, um, everything!) Meanwhile everybody else who thinks Barack the Magic Negro is knee slapping funny - just has a sense of humor is all.

Hardy Har Har.

And people who protest amid the Tea Party with signs like these - well, they're just GOOD AMERICANS, aren't they?

"Good at what?" one wonders...

In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the ‘tea party movement’.

The Tea Party is part of the "Abolitionist Spirit"? Yeah, ok - another funny or turd, take you're pick. Seems to me that historically speaking, since Lincoln fought to preserve the Union while Tenthers in the South fought for States Rights, I don't see how the Tea Party - which has bashed Obama for gross federal overreach and violation of State Sovereignty with the Health Care Bill, while openly supporting those who have suggested succession as a viable remedy have any leg to stand-on in relation to "Abolitionism", unless he had a brain fart and really meant the Abolition of Women's Rights!

The tea party position to "end the bailouts" for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn’t that what we want all Coloreds to strive for?

Ahhh hahah. Coloreds just love that Guvmint cheese. No, that's not bigoted racist imagery at all - "hey homey, don't bogard da watermelon n' cornbread..."

Just wondering, where exactly are the Conservatives on the New Financial Reform Bill that makes Wall Street responsible to pay for cleaning up their own mess, not the American Taxpayer? Oh yeah, that's right - they want to Repeal It before it's even been signed.

Way to "End the Bailouts" bucko.

What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare?

You gotta Mirror?

What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.

Where the hell does this come from? Nowhere and at no time has Anyone suggested such a thing - except for apparently, within the fever dream nightmares of Mark Williams and his fellow travelers (Limbaugh, Beck, Savage)

And the ridiculous idea of "reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government." What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!

Gee, it's only ridiculous if you don't care about having clean air to breathe, or clean water to drink, or food free of toxins like mercury and pesticides and toys not made with lead, and fish and shrimp that haven't been deep fried in Gulf Crude and Corexit 9527, or Cars that Stop when you hit the brakes, or Cars that drive when you hit the gas or Oil Rigs that don't blow up and burn 11 people alive or mines that won't explode from methane and kill 25 people at a time, or health insurance companies that actually pay for health care instead of making up bullshit excuses not to pay for claims, and pharmaceutical companies that aren't spending all their time and money trying make up phony diseases to sell us more and more PILLS for Non-existent Adult Attention Deficit Disorder, and after we finally get those Pills they don't Give us Strokes and Heart attacks or Mortgages that won't blow up in our Faces and leave us Underwater with Debt, Credit Card Interest Rates that won't double and triple without warning, or bridges that won't collapse while traffic is on it, or for that matter - police men, or firemen, or paramedics, or emergency room doctors or public school teachers.

Yeah, We the people can handle all that shit just fine on our own without that annoying always on our BACK Guvment helping out, thank you very much - just us and our Corporate bailed out buddies on Wall Street who are absolutely looking out for our best interest, right after they check the status of their stock options, latest derivative trades and $million bonus money.

Any second now, they'll be right on our side... a.n.y second.

Yup, Freedom to Live in Corporate Servitude - is my kinda Corporate Fuedalism Freedom.

The racist tea parties also demand that the government "stop the out of control spending." Again, they directly target coloreds.

Stop Out of Control Spending you Say? You mean like the $500 Billion that will be saved in Medicare over the next ten years thanks to the Bill You Opposed or all the TARP money that was paid back at an profit and helped reduce the deficit by about $300 Billion from 2009 to 2010?

Pardon my rank speculation (since there's quite a bit of that going around) maybe you just don't want any more spending on the Coloreds, but all the spending on the Pales like Farm Subsidies for Corn we simply can't eat and end up turning into high fructose syrup which is destroying our arteries?

Nope. Not a racist idea at all that.

That means we Coloreds would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.

Ah, I think that's a swing - and a miss - at Affirmative Action? Golly Mark, don't you know the 1981 Bakke v UC Regents decisions banned the use of quotas in AA Programs? Must have been so long ago, you just plain forgot that the spectre of lazy unqualified black guys getting jobs and access to good schools over better qualified white guys is pretty much A MYTH.

Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government "stop raising our taxes." That is outrageous!

Stop Raising your taxes which haven't been raised, but instead were actually lowered by 40% of the Stimulus Bill - that you Hated? Schizophrenic much there Mark?

How will we coloreds ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?

And the NAACP doesn't when it invests in education and bettering oneself via it's Image Awards program? Yet again, we see the true face of the entire "Spreading the Wealth Around" meme - it's about taking money from hardworking white folk and giving it to those lazy coloreds. It's Reparations They Fear, which is exactly what Beck and Limbaugh have said. It's not like a Colored Man could ever make more than $250,000 and have to pay a marginally higher tax rate than an Appalachian Coal worker making $30,000 a year? It's not possible that a well educated colored may be paying taxes to support an uneducated white - why that's just ridiculous.

If that was possible the image of all the Donor (giving) States in America, contrasted to all the Taker (Freeloader) States in America in terms of Federal Taxes just might look something like this...

Oh wait, it does look like that doesn't it?

Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.


Precious Ben Jealous, Tom’s Nephew NAACP Head Colored Person

Oh that's hilarious, see how he hammered home that final zinger? The NAACP just wants the massa government to take care of colored folk like they used to do - before the 13th and 14th Amendment. That's priceless. Except that before those Amendments passed, it wasn't government that provided "room and board, and handled all their decisions" - IT WAS PRIVATE INDUSTRY.

In the upside-down fracked-up world of this thimble brained cretin, the NAACP want's to repeal two of the most massive government interventionist Amendments -the ones banning slavery (except for the "duly convicted") and the one supposedly guaranteeing the "equal protection of the laws", as well as granting all persons born within the united states full and automatic citizenship.

Yeah, that's right - automatic citizenship - that pesky thing that some of your Tea Bagging buddies in Arizona - and Tea Party Crown Prince Rand Paul - consider the Anchor Baby Clause?

Yeah, fine - I'm now convinced there aren't any racists in the Tea Party. Nope. Not One.

Well, ok - just one. The Guy DOING ALL THE TALKING FOR THEM.

Oh, but geez Mark, you pretty much completely forgot one of the most important Amendments that came out of the Civil War and Reconstruction - surprising since you're such an expert and good close personal friend of Mr. Lincoln and all - the 15th Amendment which granted the Coloreds the RIGHT TO VOTE.

You really think very many of those Coloreds, especially the ones who continue to support the NAACP, are going to be voting for your candidates in November?

I suggest, in all seriousness, you think again. Hard.

Just one other thing Mark, the NAACP is only one hundred and one years old - they weren't even around during the Civil War and couldn't have written any kind of letter to Lincoln since he was long dead - just thought you should know that, since you're obviously too bone-dead dense to figure it out on your own.

[I apologize for the lateness of this comment; I was recovering from illness and missed several days of news. Now that I've caught up to this story, it's enough to put me back in my sick-bed!]

Thank you for covering the racism of Mr. Williams on your blog; it's important that people see just how much vile bigotry still reigns in the "land of the free." We are most definitely NOT in some so-called "post-racial" paradise; the bigots just haven't been wearing Klan sheets lately -- in fact, racists these days feel their views are socially acceptable again, now that corporate media give them microphones under the guise of being "fair and balanced" in their coverage. Ha!

You made some wonderful points. However, I'd like to suggest that Mr. Williams' "humorous" letter to Mr. Lincoln is even worse than you revealed at a more fundamental level, in terms of his delusional beliefs about the monstrous body- and soul-killing institution of slavery itself. Mr. Williams is not just slandering the contemporary (or even historical) NAACP. Oh no.

Think about it...he's supposedly writing in the "voice" of recently emancipated slaves, who fear that NOW that slavery is over, they might actually have to BEGIN TO WORK for a living. Which is to say, all those former slaves had just been free-loading on the plantations of the South. Perhaps in some fevered early-Hollywoodized "Birth-of-a-Nation" dream, wherein the background melodies are Stephen Foster's (whose musical intent has always been mistakenly understood by racists to glorify the antebellum South and a mythical fealty of child-like slaves toward their "benevolent" paternal masters).

See? Mr. Williams believes that slaves had it good, lazing around the property of kindly, fatherly "Massa." They apparently just spent all day on the plantation drinking sweet tea, playing banjos and dancing for the amusement of "Massa" and "Massa's" adorable children.

Williams is even MORE deeply and shockingly racist than you have already painstakingly documented.

Ooops. I forgot another little remark I meant to make.

This part of his noxious "letter" to Lincoln:

"Freedom means having to work..."

just happens to remind me of that infamous phrase in wrought-iron over the gates to Auschwitz:

I think that's what Williams seriously thinks of the NAACP position. That the Left wants people to be subservient to the government, it's happy helpless slaves - when the reality is that the Corporatists like Williams want everyone to be the slaves of industry.
