I just had an argument with my father about the sexism, misogyny, xenophobia and rampant racism within the republican party. Then I get online and this happened. I want to beat my head into a wall. He's so nonchalant about it.

I ended up reaming out a friend on twitter because (thanks to her family's opinions) she said she wasn't positively certain that he meant to call Obama that and maybe it's because he's a shitty public speaker who can't pronounce things correctly.

I think it's so funny that he's always giving Obama shit for using a teleprompter, when he is a fucking test book example for why teleprompters are necessary. For people like him who can't speak or pronounce or censor themselves worth shit.

I can't believe this fucker has any support. The US is fucked up.

Genuinely an easy way to find people to avoid tbh.

Considering how it's been pretty much open season on everyone during this election cycle, I wondered when Black people were going to get it. I guess it's our turn right now.

I can't fucking wait until November. Privileged white men are going to fucking FEEL IT. You're going to have LGBTQI, women, racial minorities, all sorts of people coming out with RAGE.

This is what division does to the party. If the Republican party is not completely ended by November, it will be a shock.

You have either more faith or less faith in people than I do.

Oh my fucking god.

Wow. Just...wow.

...Y'all know what? I can't even get mad at this. I'm too flabbergasted to manage anything other than, "Wooooow." Just...woooooow.

It is definitely pizza and booze night for me when I get home, because dang.

I swear, between the Trayvon Martin stuff, the Hunger Games flip outs over Rue actually being black, and now this, I just can't with America right now.

Also, bet this is the end of Santorum ragging on teleprompters.

Same, I just can't with America right now. At least you live in Japan because ugh, It's getting to the point where I don't want to walk around my apartment complex.

This just proves that he's not uncomfortable with this word and that it's probably part of his everyday vocabulary.

I know I'm privileged and probably just sheltered in this regard, but the totally flippant way he said it was the thing that shocked me about this, rather than the fact that he used the word at all. I grew up in an environment where not a single non-black person out of my family and friends ever would've said that word, and while I know there are tons of white people out there who do say it, hearing it said with such a completely casual tone made my jaw drop. It's totally obvious that it's a word he uses all the time, and he thinks nothing of it.
sakuraberries 30th-Mar-2012 06:59 am (UTC)
What the fuck. Why is this man still in the running. WHY.
phoenixblaze 30th-Mar-2012 06:59 am (UTC)
I just, what is this? Every time I think it couldn't possibly be worse or more insane I'm proven wrong the same day.

I'm honestly thinking of getting into politics. There's no way I could be worse and more offensive than these guys.

Oh wait. People are going to think my vagina will get in the way. My bad.

I literally ran here from Tumblr when I saw this. When I read the caption, I couldn't believe it. I thought the video must have been a parody, or that somebody subbed over him, but when I played it, I was surprised to hear his voice saying it. I'm not surprised he said it, no. I'm not naive. I just couldn't believe that he wanted to forfeit his campaign so early. He seemed to be enjoying himself.

But no, I'm not surprised. This word has been poised on his lips for months. He's gotten a chance to say horrible and despicable things about the LGBT community, wants to control women, thinks Puerto Ricans should learn english, and already said that black people were abusing the welfare system. He's been dying to say it so much in public. I bet he even purposefully slipped up, so that his constituents could know exactly how he feels about having a Black man in office. And I bet he calls Obama the n-word over and over again until he turns blue in the face behind closed doors and with Republican friends and relatives. I just know it.

Ugh, trashy. I really do hope the GOP tries to distance themselves away from him. He's had too many slip ups. Everybody knows they like their racism disguised and sugarcoated.

Quite apt.

I saw the cut version that was linked to and literally gasped.

Wow. I can't even. :/
