Glenn Beck's Cool New Artsy Friend 'Sabo' Can Say The N-Word Any Time He Wants
Remember a few months ago when Andrew Breitbart's website for angry neckbeards launched Breitbart California? And they kicked off the launch with some cool edgy posters of Nancy Pelosi's face on Miley Cyrus's body? And then there were the Abortion Barbie Wendy Davis posters, which totally made us want an Abortion Barbie?
The artistic genius behind those posters is a perpetual darling of the right, an anonymous street artist named Sabo, a dude who is basically a dime-store Banksy, if Bansky was a super racist homophobe. Glenn Beck had this toolshed on his pretend internet teevee show on Monday, mainly so that Beck and Sabo could sit around, chill, kick it, and ask the hard questions, like "why can't we just say n*gger all the time like we want to?" Deep, man, deep.
Who are we kidding? That doesn't even BEGIN to cover the depths of stupid contained in this six-minute segment.
OK first, this dude Sabo has his face blurred out the entire time, as if an entire nation is clamoring to know who makes these shitty photoshop posters of his. Next, he is chock full of wisdom about the n-word, with observations like about how his stepdad called him little n*gger and he called said stepdad big n*gger, but it's cool, because they were a working class family. Wait, what?
Sabo then went on to drop some mad science about how he was at a Prop 8 rally, and some of the gays were making a poster that said "f*gs are the new n*iggers" and he asked the gentlemen about it, and they explained that the gays had supported Bamz, but felt unsupported by the black community in return. Now, there's a whole lot of many words to be said about whether or not this is an appropriate political stance and whether you can reclaim a cultural slur while slurring another culture (prolly not, actually!), and whether or not this is indicative of intra-left tensions and blah blah blah.
Sabo does not appear to have absorbed any of this or given it any thought whatsoever, really. All he really got from the convo was that he should make a shitty poster with two slurs in one.
Are you riveted by that art all up in your face? Shocked? OK, how about confused? Let's go with confused. Dude, when you do not like gay people or black people, it isn't edgy or transgressive to slur them both in one fell swoop (or even separately, whatevs). You are not fighting the power, even if Glenn Beck is pretty sure you're a goddamn hero because you are fighting the thought police.
It astounds me that the people who, my whole life, have accused me and people like me of being a Nazi, of trying to stifle speech and everything else - I don't care what you're saying. It doesn't bother me. It's not going to make me cower in fear and run away crying. However, they have now stifled everyone's speech to the point to where we're now getting down to thought police.
Hey you guys! Glenn Beck will not be cowed, Glenn Beck will not shed tears, if you call him a slur normally reserved for black people or for gay people, because Glenn Beck is a big strong man. Also too probably because Glenn Beck is neither gay nor black.
What fortitude you have, Glenn.
But enough about Glenn Beck. Glenn Beck looks like Noam fucking Chomsky next to Sabo, who tells us that "whites in general have been beat down so much" and then goes on to keep flapping his big blurry lips about how Bamz is just like Hitler, which he can totally say because 80% of his friends are Jews.
Does anyone who isn't a fucking asshole keep a running percentage breakdown of the various ethnic, religious, and sexual persuasions of their friends? NOPE. It's like a giant warning sign: HERE BE BIGOTS. Maybe that can be Sabo's next poster.
