Sit down, Wonkers, we have some sad news. It looks as if Kansas's favorite votefucker Kris Kobach may be just a wee smidge racist. The Guardian dug through Kobach's campaign finance disclosures, and produced a list of all the people who are SUPER PROUD TO BE WHITE and also super proud to donate to Kobach's gubernatorial bid. Check out these winners!

There's Peter Brimelow, founder of the white nationalist group VDare which seeks to preserve America as a bastion of white culture and protect it from degradation by non-white immigrants and Jews. The site, which has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center, is named for Virginia Dare, the first white baby born to English colonists who disappeared with the whole Roanoke colony. Leave aside the irony of a bunch of lunatics screaming about illegal immigration under the banner of an immigrant child whose entire culture disappeared 400 years ago because they couldn't hack it in this country. Kobach was endorsed by Brimelow to be Trump's vice president -- so it's a safe bet that the guy obsessed with that dead white baby thinks Kris Kobach bats for Team Racist.


Movin' on! Remember that Trump lackey who got fired for hanging around with all the white nationalists? No, not the speechwriter. Ian Smith, the former DHS guy who went to Judenfrei dinner parties. He's also a big fan of Kris Kobach's. Go figure.

And hey, look it's notorious immigrant hater KC McAlpin of The Social Contract, a website flogging conspiracy theories about HIAS, Facebook protecting Mexican child molesters, and Al Sharpton supporting an immigration cohort of "Hispanics, Asians, blacks, and other nonwhites, an amalgam known in Leftspeak as 'people of color.'" Meth and cornflakes: Two great tastes that taste great together! Between McAlpin and someone who appears to be his wife, they've donated $15,000 to Kobach in this electoral cycle alone. Probably because they like his cool hair, not because they think he agrees with their racist rhetoric, right? Oh, and by the way, Kobach was a paid speaker at The Social Contract's "writers workshop" in 2015.

Anyway, Kobach can prove that he's not racist! He has a black staffer to vouch for him, SO THERE. Spokeswoman Danedri Herbert told The Guardian,

I am black and I am his closest staff member. I spend more time with him than any member on his staff. He is not a racist.

Which is pretty much what she told The Topeka Capital-Journal this summer when they asked why the Kobach campaign was paying three staffers who belonged to American Heritage Initiative, a splinter group of white nationalist Identity Evropa.

Herbert said none of the men are members of the American Heritage Initiative, and that she doesn't believe it exists. Two of the men are members of a Christian organization called the American Heartland Institute, she said.

"Secretary Kobach isn't a racist, and obviously, the campaign will not tolerate racism," Herbert said. "It is baffling to me, a black woman who serves as Secretary of State Kris Kobach's spokeswoman, that so many in the media are digging up fake news when they should be investigating real stories."

Doesn't exist? Can't wait for all the nutbags to start using the Snuffleupagus defense when they get caught palling around with Nazis.

Here's what one of the men, Colin Gustin, said last year when chatting up his fellow Kansas College Republicans.

These people know they're not oppressed. They just hate white people and are jealous of us. They know they can bully us with the oppression stuff until they're granted EXTRA rights, because most have been brainwashed with disingenuous, weaponized, cherry picked history into white guilt. They won't stop until we grow a spine. The USA is the least racist country in the world. We have so much racial tension because we ALLOW and SUBSIDIZE tens of millions of people from other groups to come here.

He seems nice.

And it seems that Kansans got the memo that there's something deeply wrong and gross about their Secretary of State, who narrowly edged out sitting Governor Jeff Colyer in the GOP primary thanks to Trump's late endorsement. Currently, the polling is dead even between Kobach and totally normal human being and non-racist, nice lady Laura Kelly. Which should not happen In a state which Donald Trump won by 20 points. It's a weird year!

To paraphrase Florida's next governor, we're not sure what's in Kris Kobach's closet, but the racists seem pretty confident that it's a white hood. Come on, Kansas, Vote Blue! YOU CAN DO IT!

Last week, Yr Dok Zoom talked a little bit about his damn dissertation, which looked at "Wabbit Literacy," the weird thing where we sometimes learn about the world from parodies and jokes long before we ever encounter the original stuff -- like learning about opera from cartoons. More than one person in the comments (which Wonkette does not allow and yet, like life, you find a way) mentioned they were disappointed, as kids, to learn that while roadrunners are real birds, the actual critter looks nothing like this:

Which is not to say that real roadrunners are the least bit disappointing, as animals go, because they're freaking incredible. Yes, even if they don't actually leave lines of flame down the center line of desert highways and go "Meep! Meep!" But they can sprint up to 20 miles per hour, which is faster than you, albeit slower than a real coyote's top speed. Also, yes, real coyotes are among the predators what eat roadrunners, which is why the wily birds adopted the evolutionary strategy of running right through fake tunnels coyotes paint on the sides of mountains.

Once upon a time... about ten years ago, a group of entirely ridiculous men burst onto the scene wearing stupid hats and telling men that wearing stupid hats and telling men that walking up to women in bars and insulting ("negging") them would get them laid. This did not last long, as women also had televisions and computers and were completely aware of these tricks as well, so when some ass came up to us in a bar and said "Hey, nice nails, are they real?" we would laugh and laugh and loudly announce "Oh my god, this guy just tried to neg me! Can you believe that shit? HEY EVERYONE, THIS GUY JUST TRIED TO NEG ME!" and then refer to him as "Mystery" the whole night.

Most of the men who tried that shit only did so a few times before realizing that it wasn't going to work, and thus moved on to other things. Perhaps things that did not involve furry hats and coming off as a huge creep. We may never know, because I would assume that those who tried it are now extremely embarrassed and would never, ever admit to this to us.

Still, there were a few men willing to eat that shit up, as well as some grifters willing to take advantage of that. Said grifters tended to be extremely misogynistic and seemed more like they were teaching men how to be as despised by women as they were than teaching them how to actually be liked by women.

Some of them, like Roosh V, a creepy weirdo who actually does live in his mom's basement, actively encouraged men to rape women who were intoxicated to the point of being obviously unable to consent.

However, even that branch of the PUA tree is wilting away. Many "self-help" style PUA forums like Nextasf and RSDnation are shutting down or have already shut down. In March, Chateau Heartiste, a batshit crazy PUA turned White Nationalist/Alt-Right blog was shut down by Wordpress. This week, rape advocate Roosh V (whom you may recall once called yours truly a "Wonkette typist/clown face, would not bang") announced that he was renouncing his PUA ways and devoting himself to Jesus. He explained to the forum he manages that he would no longer be allowing anyone to discuss premarital "fornication."
