DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Mark Williams, The Tea Party Express’ Non-Racist Racist

July 16th, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana

Having read and re-read and re-read and re-read the “parody letter” that Tea Party Express talking head Mark Williams wrote to Abe Lincoln in the voice of NAACP President Ben Jealous, speaking for “The Coloreds,” I’ve got to say:

I DON’T GET IT.

In an effort to defend the Tea Party’s position that it isn’t racist, Williams cleverly decided this week to turn the tables on an, uh, obvious target: the NAACP. He called them out for being “racist” (Naturally!) due to the fact that the 99-year-old organization’s name still includes the word “colored.”

In case you aren’t familiar with the NAACP, I’ve included their mission and vision statements below:

We at DISGRASIAN hate to lend any more attention to the Tea Party–they’re a fringe Continue reading DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Mark Williams, The Tea Party Express’ Non-Racist Racist

Sure, Two Wrongs Don’t Make Right-Wing…

The 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference, affectionally known as CPAC, is under way as we speak in our nation’s capital.

Conservationists. No wait, Conservatives.

In today’s update on the conference goings-on, HuffPo pulled this choice quote from Jason Mattera of the Young America’s Foundation:

“Our notion of freedom doesn’t consist of snorting cocaine, which distinguishes us from Barack Obama.”



Oh ho ho ho ho! ZING!

Can’t help but wonder, though: does the conservative notion of freedom include driving drunk, getting arrested, and  gobbling pharmaceutical heroin? Just wondering.

(Cock-sure commenters, we know that everybody’s parsing words. But this shit is seriously SO SILLY.)

We Get It Already, Blasians Can’t Drive Escalades

December 2nd, 2009 | 8 comments | Posted by Diana

As Gawker aptly pointed out yesterday, nearly every hack comedian in America managed a take on this setup: “Blasian Tiger Woods crashes his Escalade.”

Ha.



There are many versions, but the joke goes something like this:

Tiger Woods crashed his Escalade yesterday!
Well you know, he’s Black and Asian [pause for yuks].
And of course… the Black part of him bought the Cadillac [insert ghetto grin] and the Asian part of him was driving [insert buck teef]!

Click here for the sampler flight of punchlines.

Surprisingly, though, not one comedian seemed to find a way to make the “joke” funny. ZzZZZzzZzzZZZzZzzzzzZzzzz.

Thanks, Jasmine and Colin!

Go Blue

To the Vietnamese-American readers that I may have hated on too quickly this week, because of their undying, ungodly, unexplainable commitment to the support of Sen. McCain:

Hey. I’m sorry for calling you “gooks.” That was really rude, huh? Here’s the thing–I say–I was joking with a veteran–I hate to even go into this. I was joking with an old veteran friend, who joked with me, about Vietnam…. well anyway. I’m not really sorry.

So, anyhoozle, I think there’s a way for you fucking head-up-your-ass, middle-class-fearing, Vietnamese McCain supporters to redeem yourselves in my judgmental eyes us to bridge the gap between us and allow us to be straight with each other again.

The Obama campaign is in dire need of Vietnamese-speaking volunteers to spread the good word and explain what’s what on the issues (think of it as missionary work) to the large Viet community there. The staff can train you, explain the issues, and help you help us. HELP US. Get on your moped and skedaddle over to Virginia. IF YOU WANT US TO BE COOL AGAIN, that is, then HELP US ALL.

Ma peeps!!!
