KSK Off Topic: Vote for Barack Obama And Receive A “Get Out Of Racism Free” Card!


It’s primary day here in the DC area. Due to the fact that I am a registered independent and a convicted embezzler/animal sex offender, I’m not eligible to vote in any of these things. I tried to change my registration, but I was far too late to do so. But, if I were eligible, I would totally vote for this guy, Barack Obama. In fact, I even gave his campaign ten dollars, and I plan on happily voting for him in November. Now, I have political reasons for voting for Obama. I like him, I like his policies, I think he’s a great leader and all that shit.

But fuck all that for a moment. There’s another reason I want to vote for Obama, and it is this. Voting for Barack Obama gives me, a white person, a new and refreshing way to let people know that I am NOT a racist. For years, after making a terrible ethnic joke, I always tried to counter any accusations of racism with the tired excuse, “Hey, I’ve got black friends.”

First of all, this excuse has been beaten into the ground by too many white people (such as me) over the years. No one buys it anymore, and rightfully so. You’re just a boy crying black wolf if you say it. Second of all, I haven’t seen my one black friend in over a year. Which sucks, because my friend Turk (not his real name, nor does he call me JD) may know more about pornography than any man in history. The darkest friend I have after that is my friend Tony, and I only say he’s dark because he wears lots of black and is on lithium. The rest of my friends are whiter than a blank Word document.

So that excuse doesn’t wash any more for my lily-white preppy Bethesda ass. If I want to deflect any and all racial criticism, I’m gonna need something better. And that’s what this knight in shining chocolate armor gives me. How racist can I be if I actively contributed to and voted for a silky smooth black man to be leader of the free world? Answer: NOT RACIST AT ALL!

Did I complain about that fat black woman who was walking too slowly down the sidewalk, whom I could not get around? Sure did. But I’m not racist. I VOTED FOR OBAMA, GOD DAMMIT. Do I know every line of “Blazing Saddles” by heart? Oh, yeah. But I’m not racist. I VOTED FOR OBAMA, GOD DAMMIT. Does my sphincter tighten if I’m alone in a parking garage late at night after a movie and I see a black man approaching? Possibly. But I’m not racist. I VOTED FOR OBAMA, GOD DAMMIT. Do I think that John Thompson may be legally retarded? Good God, yes. But I’m not racist. I VOTED FOR OBAMA, GOD DAMMIT.

You see? With one pull of the lever, I’ve got a whole new excuse for all my minor prejudices and subconscious anxieties towards people who are different from me. And that buys me another decade or so to avoid confronting and trying to fix all those pesky inner flaws. Oh, the freedom tastes so sweet!

AND it gives me carte blanche to accuse OTHER white people of being racist, which is just about the most enjoyable thing in the world. Because, if you didn’t know it by now, the fact is that the most racially offensive thing to call a white person today is “racist”. “Honky” and “cracka” don’t bother them in the least. But call a white person the r-word? Holy shit, do they get upset. It’s terrific fun. Look at all those Massholes. They voted for that white Clinton bitch in the primary. WHAT A BUNCH OF FILTHY RACISTS! If only they had voted for Obama like me, then they would be extremely NOT racist. But they didn’t, so fuck those unenlightened, Klan-rallying racists.

I’m also hoping this vote gives me an opportunity to broaden my ethnic joke repertoire. Ever notice how Asian people treat other people as if they’re completely invisible? Or that some black grocery store clerks always need the key? Those are topics I’d really like to touch on. Not that I’m racist. I VOTED FOR OBAMA, GOD DAMMIT.

I tell you, playing this Obama card will work absolute wonders for us all. We’re about to enter a whole new world of acceptable ethnic humor, which I think will help unify us all. Can we make it happen? Well, if I may be so bold: YES WE CAN!

UPDATE: Some other asshole had this idea before I did. Well, fuck that guy. He's a fucking racist.

1.) I'm not voting for someone who has the perfect look to play Tom DuBois if they ever make a live-action Boondocks movie.

2.) Wake me up when this asshole does something in the Senate besides work on his Presidential campaign, which he claims isn't about race, though he gladly uses African-American colloquialisms that would get Clinton/McCain skewered in the media to his advantage.

Look, none of these sumbitches running for Pres have an ounce of experience at anything other than kissing the collective ass of the special interests and lobbyists.

Weathervane McCain was against the Bush's tax cuts before he was for them.

sHillary is one nasty-ass ballbuster which should probably endear her to to me, but it doesn't. I still say she pees standing up.

Huck just wants to bring God and religion to the world which means you all would have to go to fucking church on sundays instead of watching football..so fuck that asshole with a buzzsaw.

Obama did drugs and bragged about it in his book..if thats not a reason to vote for his black ass I don't know what is. Plus he does stand up better than any of the other fuckwits running.

What other reasons do we need to vote his black ass in?

actually, Barack hasn't taken any money from lobbyists.

and you aren't electing a man, but an administration. I'm pretty sure the team he puts together will have some "experience whatsoever in domestic or foreign policy making." I doubt the scary and slightly retarded mug of Dubya is whats keeping Iran from starting shit. Its not as if the Dems would sit on their hands if they actually DID something.

sucks that you can't vote in the primary as an Independent though. You can in VA.

Add another -10 from me.

I'm sorry you don't like it when the black guy uses black slang, MD. You're going to be furious when you find out that he's also fathered two black kids.

And devang, you're right. Messages of hope and idealism never work in politics. Just look at those empty-headed idiots who said stuff like "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself" or "ask not what your country can do for you..." Who wants a return to those nightmare days?

SonOfSpam said...

I know one person who won't vote Obama because he's Muslim (he isn't, of course), and another who won't vote for him because his middle name is Hussein (which is scary).

At this point, either Obama or Hillary would be such a cockslap in the face of these kinds of people...if nothing else, please vote out of a sense of Scahdenfreude!!!

Just look at those empty-headed idiots who said stuff like "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself" or "ask not what your country can do for you..." Who wants a return to those nightmare days?

So Obama is either going to suffer from a debilitating disease and have to roll around in a wheel chair, screw his attractive secretary while avoind his horse-faced wife (who was his cousin), spend money to make the lives of poor people slightly better and aid and abet a world war by choosing sides and openly flaunting the obligations of a neutral country, and then repeal the 22nd Amendment.

Or Obama can take three shots in nine seconds in Dallas, after he copulates with every breathing female in a 50 mile radius while doped up on pain edications for a back injury he suffered when his crappy skippering allowed his PT boat to be cut in half by a Japanese destroyer - at night, and by setting race relations back from the previous administrations gains because he was worried about losing the Southern vote (the ones his daddy couldn't buy with bootleg liquor money).

Obama's got my vote.

Amen, BDD. Why do you think I chose a Wu-Gambino alias as my nom-de-tubes? It allows me to add comments in all of the Hines Ward posts without being completely racist, just overwhelmingly so.

but yea, this is clearly a way better post than that one was. so i guess that can kind of act as your card, if i'm the one doling them out... which i am.

Joe said...

Obama is probably the single worst presidential candidate of the last 20 years. He stands for nothing except special interest pork barrel spending, and padding the pockets of the fat cats in Washington. He'd rather steal your television rather than cut your taxes.

Not to mention hes a fucking Muslim. Come on now, seriously, the leader of the free world a Muslim? Yeah that'll work out real well.

We could get into a long and arduous argument on this issue, but this isn't the forum for it.

We respectfully agree to disagree on our views.

"Yep, we need someone who's got no experience whatsoever in domestic or foreign policy making."

So if the Senate doesn't make domestic or foreign policy, who does? And if you're worried about Russia, shouldn't you try to disarm them from nuclear weapons? Sort of like that one bill does...what's it called...oh yeah, the Lugar-Obama Bill.

miamidiesel said...

@otto man: -10 for failing to use a Simpsons reference in trying to deflate my argument. Know your role goddamnit.

As for Obama, the man is all style and no substance. It's easy for him to say he's been against the war from the start and wouldn't have voted for it when HE DIDN'T ACTUALLY HAVE TO VOTE. Since he's been in the Senate, he hasn't done anything substantive to lead opposition to the war. You're telling me that somebody named Barack Hussein Obama would've had the balls to vote against the war in Iraq in the post-9/11 environment that that vote was taken in? Maybe there is a Barack Hussein Obama who would've had the balls to vote against it, but not this asshole, who tucks tail and retreats off all those dreamy things he says in his speeches when he has something at stake politically. Take a look at this article, which chronicles his backing away from positions (on admittedly lesser issues). He tells college kids in Illinois in 2004 that he's for decriminalizing marijuana when he's running for Senate. Now? His own goddamn campaign managers don't know what his position his, but it appears he's just for "reduced sentences". Is he for or against ending the embargo on Cuba? What's his position on universal healthcare? Time and again he's made a speech in favor of what some might think is an ideal position on these issues, and now that he's actually in office and has his position at stake he's backed off of the positions that would comprise the real change and hope he talks about. This guy is so full of shit Mr. Hankey is blushing. Seriously, fuck this guy.

Dammit, no wonder I don't have the inside scoop like Joe does.

@ otto man: well if the choice is going to be between a giant douche and a turd sandwich, why not go choice three and vote for the awesom-o 3000

I have it on good authority that Awesom-O is not, in fact, an actual robot. He's a bigger phony than Mitt Romney, who is, oddly enough, an actual robot.

@otto man: We respectfully agree to disagree on our views.

Fine by me. I don't want to get fed to Tommy Thompson either.

And for everyone's sanity, I'll apply the truce to MD too.

@bacsonkadonk: I know it's the Moonie Times. But they have video evidence!

Can't we all just go back to hating on Pats fans?

Russell said...

I know no one wants to hear it, but I'd like to point out that Greg Schuler is stupid. He said FDR repealed the 22nd amendment.

FDR was president from 1933 to 1945. The 22nd amendment was passed by Congress in 1947, and ratified in 1951.

In closing, Mr. Schuler is a dickface.

Awful Chief said...

Listening to Obama's sweet empty rhetoric is like listening to Madden after Thanksgiving dinner. It's not at all substantive, but it's still great. So just vote for the guy.

Greg Schuler said...

@Russell - um, FDR was the reason for the 22nd Amendment, Therefore, for Obama to become FDR (which I would want to see - Obama with those little glasses and the cigarette holder, he'd be looking real tight) he would need to find a way to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which has never been repealed.

So in closing, you are a retarded fuckwit. And an asshat.

Greg Schuler said...

@ottoman - like Stephen Hawking then?

smurphette said...

@miamidiesel: You started out so well with the Boondocks, and then you had to go and ruin it by talking about the Senate. I work in the House, so I can tell you that the Senate never does anything anyway, and he (and Billary, and McCain) might as well use his time constructively by campaigning.

Well according to the feminazi in the article. Sadly the piece is not satirical like yours. She manages to basically say that all black are voting for Obama and all women are voting for Clinton. Apparently if you're not feminist you are too busy cooking supper and having babies to make an intelligent choice so you go with the woman or whoever's holding something shiny.

Sorry all you white guys, if you vote Obama you're just sexist!

She likes her a big brush!
