Virginia GOP Group Definitely, Definitely Not Racist

News

There are probably, somewhere, very reasonable members of the contemporary GOP who are genuinely interested in improving political discourse in a way that is constructive, well-reasoned, and responsible. You could find them, if you looked.


A tip: Don't bother searching in Mecklenburg County, Virginia.

Turns out, the people running the local GOP outfit there are a smidge... racially insensitive. Not in the "Suggest that his brownness indicates he is less fit for college/the presidency/America in general" way, either — in that way where they post pictures of the president wearing a Nobel Peace Prize on a giant gold chain.

From the Washington Post:

“These kinds of images have no place in political discourse — period,” said Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia. “They are offensive, tasteless and should never have been posted anywhere, let alone a local unit’s Facebook page. The Republican Party of Virginia condemns this sort of imagery in the strongest possible terms. I am in the process of contacting our Mecklenburg County unit to inform them that this is unacceptable behavior from any local unit associated with our party.”

A moment of detached, objective analysis: If the party of famous, confirmed slur-slinger George "Macaca" Allen is saying you're being kind of racist, you're probably being extraordinarily racist.

Even after the party called them out and the Post was like "whoaaa," however, they haven't taken any of the pictures down. And -- surprise! -- the chairman isn't going to, because America.

R. Wallace “Wally” Hudson, chairman of the committee, was surprised to hear from a reporter that anyone had taken offense.

“If that group is that sensitive, I’m sorry, they’re just not human,” he said, chuckling. “It’s not American. If they’ve got a problem with it, we’re not going to change what we do.”

Wait wait wait -- "that group," "just not human"? Who is "that group"? People? Black people? Why does Wally get to decide who is a homo sapien? Don't worry. He keeps talking.

“We know our regular readers, who are good conservatives, they’re gonna get a kick out of it,” said Hudson, 55, a retired airline flight crew member who became chairman in May. “The rest of them, if they don’t want to see it, they don’t have to look at it. We don’t consider any of it racist."

You hear that, Good Conservatives? If you're not laughing at this caveman thing, you're not human:

This one too, you humorless not-humans:

Don't worry, there's fodder for the birthers too:

And, yes, some shiz for the Godwin's Law addicts:

If you can't tell, that's a graphic, posted last month, explaining how Hitler, Mao Zedong and Stalin are providing policy ideas to former Attorney General Janet Reno in the name of genocide.

BUT WAIT! There's more! The group also posted a strange, rambling pseudo-article attributed falsely to 60 Minutes' Steve Kroft about how George Soros is a "demon" who killed Jews. They provided commentary of their own, posted as a comment under the group's name:

Describing Gerorge Soros as "evil" is too kind of a word to describe him. This man has been allowed to orchestrate the downfall of this country and is the puppet master of the Muslim POTUS. This man has criminal behavior going back to childhood when he served up his own people to his Nazi masters in Hungary. He is a communist, a molester of humanity and is a student of history. He knows what to expect of the American people because he is able to use the decadence of our uninformed and under-educated society of dimwits further his aim of destroy the United States of America.

Muslim POTUS? Nazi masters? Is it possible? The elusive double-bonus wingnut hillbilly sooper-score? It's actually happened! The small, neglected Mecklenburg County GOP managed to combine a Nazi reference with a birther reference, with triple bonus points for using the word "molester." Nobody thought it could be done.

What a Cinderella story. [WaPo]

'Bella" by Wonkette Operative 'IdiokraticSubpoenaKommissar'

Sunday already, which means a substantial portion of US America is preparing to be astonished/heartbroken/outraged by the series finale of that show with the dragons, while another portion is just going to stay off Twitter for three days because nothing will make any sense. Yr Dok Zoom tends to come very late to trendy things, so get ready for our own thoughts on the gamy thrones show sometime in about 2023, or never. But we'd be glad to tell you just how much we enjoy the brilliance and humanity of the Cartoon Network series "Steven Universe," which debuted in 2013 and we started bingeing on the Hulu last month, late again.

Hell, we still want to talk about that one Mrs Landingham episode of "The West Wing," which we first watched years after it aired (We finally bought our new used car yesterday, and know one thing: don't drive over to the White House to show it off to President Bartlet). We might even get around to reading Infinite Jest someday. We hear it has something to do with a superhero team and a guy named Thanos. So hey, let's talk about culture and missing out and patching together some knowledge of what's happening anyway.

Get Me Roger Stone

Roger Stone, his wife would like you to know, is broke. And he is not dealing with it well. Once in khaki suits, gee, he looked swell, full of that yankee-doodle-dee-dum, but now no one calls him Al anymore and he has to stand on a street corner singing "Brother Can You Spare A Dime?"

Yesterday, the conservative but also kind of Never Trumper site The Bulwark revealed the details of a grifty "fundraising" plea sent out by Stone's wife Nydia, begging supporters to give money to the Stones in order to help them keep up the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed.

It was titled "I am embarrassed to write this."

"Dear Friend," begins the missive. "My husband and I have an urgent new problem and we need your help. I told my husband I was going to write you, one of his most valued supporters. I am embarrassed to write this, but I must."

"Mrs. Roger Stone" tells a tale of woe: FBI agents swooping in on them at the crack of dawn to arrest her husband, a subsequent "fake news" feeding frenzy causing friends and fans to abandon the Stones.

"He laid off all our consultants, contractors and employees, and we have 'pulled in our belts' like so many Americans in 'tight times,'" she wrote, sounding for all the world like a plucky working-class patriot, not the wife of a man who made and lost his fortune lying in the service of power.

She should have been more embarrassed.
