DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Bigotry ‘n’ Japan, Post-Tsunami

March 18th, 2011 | 10 comments | Posted by Jen & Diana

As you all know, a week ago, an 8.9 earthquake hit off the eastern coast of Japan, unleashing a 23-foot tsunami that so far has claimed 7,000 lives, with another 10,000 still missing (and feared dead). Nearly 400,000 people–a good number of them elderly–have been displaced and are living in shelters. Meanwhile, the damaged Fukushima nuclear plant raised its crisis level from level 4 to 5 out of 7, which, according to CNN, “indicates the likelihood of a release of radioactive material, several deaths from radiation and severe damage to a reactor core.”

In the outpouring of sympathy and support for Japan that came from all quarters, there were those who thought what was happening in Japan was…HILARZ.

There were those who thought what was happening in Japan was from God.

There were those who seemed more concerned with the fate of the Japanese Yen than the Japanese people, and then there were those who felt very strongly that Japan finally got what was coming to them. They took to Twitter with their talk of “payback” and “karma” for Pearl Harbor, atrocities committed against other Asian countries during WWII, the killing of whales and dolphins.

And the people expressing these sorts of sentiments haven’t just been randos with too much time on their hands, they’ve been well-known and famous, with huge followings on Twitter, radio, and TV.

Below is a list of the last week’s most notable offenders:

Tweeted last Friday by the rapper to his 4 million+ followers:

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Limbaugh Supporter Faxes Death Threats To CA State Senator Leland Yee

January 28th, 2011 | 5 comments | Posted by Diana

Whoever said that a lazy racist isn’t an effective one?

Last week, Rush Limbaugh’s ching-chong impression of Hu Jintao caused a major stir. Some people were shocked, some weren’t surprised, heaps were deeply offended, scads joined in on a collective smack of the forehead. More definitively, a group of Asian-American lawmakers, led by Sen. Leland Yee (D-CA), demanded an apology for the comments.

Limbaugh–always a victim of the left–called his racist tirade “a service.” But I call it a big, sweaty, hairy back off of which even more brainless (Imagine!), more hateful, more ignorant, more racist dickburgers saw the opportunity to leapfrog, into a space much more dark, even dangerous.

Take for example, a death threat that was sent by one of those ignorant dickburgers to Sen. Yee, by fax, on Wednesday, in defense of Limbaugh:

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Rush “Ching Chong” Limbaugh

January 20th, 2011 | 6 comments | Posted by Jen

I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again: modern-day racists are lazy.  They’re lazy in their spelling.  They’re lazy in naming their children.  And lest you think they’re only lazy when it comes to things that are difficult or require a certain amount of thinking, they’re even lazy when it comes to their pastimes, to activities that only serve to please, like building snowmen, for instance.

Take, for example, Rush Limbaugh whinging yesterday about how FOX News wasn’t translating a speech given by Hu Jintao, which resulted in Rush’s dumb ass only being able to make out a bunch of unintelligible ching chong:

I mean, he’s not even giving racism the old college try!  This racism is so bald, not even the anti-political correctness crowd could give it a pass.  This racism is even beneath young children.  This kind of racism is just lazy.

But you know one thing that’s great about lazy racists? Continue reading DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Rush “Ching Chong” Limbaugh

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Rush Limbaugh And His Fear Of A Green Planet

September 17th, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Diana

For those of you that haven’t yet had the chance to fall in love with the new Nissan LEAF commercial that Intern Jasmine posted on Wednesday, Rush Limbaugh’s description may suffice:

“If you didn’t see the commercial it is pathetic.  Al Gore coulda written the thing.  It starts out with a poor little polar bear barely surviving on a tiny little what is supposed to be melting glacier — which is common, ordinary practice, them on an ice floe. The polar bear can swim 60 miles. They go out there and they cool off on these things, sit in the sun on them.  Then it shows a distant glacier that the small little one had broken off from.  And then the polar bear swims and swims and swims and swims and finally gets to the iceberg and keeps going, keeps going, keeps going through neighborhoods. It goes all the way down to America from the North Pole, all the way to America, and finally finds a driveway where there is an electric car, sneaks up on the owner who is about to get in it and gives the owner a hug.  The polar bear with tears in its eyes gives the frightened owner of the Nissan a hug.  For supposedly doing something to save the polar bear.  The whole thing is just a fraud.”

We all know that Rush Limbaugh believes that global warming is a bunch of bullshit. We know he is a bloated blowhard, drug addict and idiot. He’s also an insensitive, irresponsible fuck when it comes to words:

“They got market research that obviously says this is the way to sell the electric car.  Sell it with guilt, sell it to these Nimrods who think like this idiot who took hostages at the Discovery network building.”

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! The Sherrod Charade

July 24th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Jen

Shirley Sherrod

Back in March, Andrew Breitbart wrote a post called “2010: A Race Odyssey — Disproving a Negative for Cash Prizes or, How the Civil Rights Movement Jumped the Shark” for Big Journalism, one of his five websites, in which he claimed that accusations of racism are merely a “trick” of the Left:

As I have said over and over and over, the left has one trick that it will use again and again when its back is in the corner: shout ‘racist’ in a crowded country.

Which is funny, given how Breitbart was the first to post that heavily-edited and manipulated video of USDA employee Shirley Sherrod giving a speech at an NAACP event, and the first to call Sherrod’s speech racist:

“In this piece you will see video evidence of racism coming from a federal appointee and NAACP award recipient and in another clip from the same event a perfect rationalization for why the Tea Party needs to exist.”

That video, which appeared on July 19, touched off a two day-orgy on the part of the right wing-media, in which not only Sherrod, but the NAACP, civil rights activists, the so-called mainstream media, the Obama administration, and pretty much anyone who’s ever been engaged or concerned with race issues was labeled racist. Media Matters For America has a full timeline, but here are a few highlights:

“The—this woman on tape saying these racially charged things that she didn’t want to help farmers, in particular white farmer. That she said she wanted him to go out and deal with one of his own and she put him in touch with a white lawyer. Just the latest in a series of racial incidents.”–Sean Hannity, Hannity, July 19

“The former civil rights group known as the NAACP does not just invite anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and radical America-hating Marxist Jeremiah Wright to speak at their events…They also invite government officials who hate whitey Continue reading DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! The Sherrod Charade

When Worlds Gently And Mindfully Collide

His Holiness the Dalai Lama with President Barack Obama, at the White House, on February 18.


OBAMA: It is good to finally meet you here, your Holiness. Thank you for coming.

DALAI LAMA: It is good to see you, President Obama.

OBAMA: Your good friend Sharon Stone called the White House today nine times in anticipation of your arrival.

DALAI LAMA: She is–what do you call–a hoot. Very good intention, but very hot mind.

OBAMA: Indeed.

DALAI LAMA: (leaning in) And of course, as nuts as a bowl of almonds.

OBAMA: Yes!

[gently, they chuckle]

OBAMA: Your job seems… challenging.

DALAI LAMA: Your job also seems challenging. However, this is a good test for you.

OBAMA: It is. I believe that that ultimately, the American people are good. We all want to benefit humanity, just go about it in different ways.

The Politicizasian Of Suffering In Haiti

January 13th, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Diana

That ignorant windbag Pat Robertson’s theory as to why Haiti was struck by yesterday’s devastating 7.0 earthquake, which has tragically taken hundreds of thousands of lives, is not surprising: the country made a pact with the Devil to escape French colonialism, of course! (Crikey. Let’s not forget that this man and his evangelist buddy, Jerry Falwell, once blamed the 9/11 attacks on gays and the ACLU.)

And it’s hardly shocking the Rush Limbaugh discouraged Americans from contributing to relief efforts, at least those linked at the White House “propaganda” website:

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! The Obama Bow-cklash

Obama Bow Japan

To the angry, inflammatory, right-wing pundits (like Michelle Malkin and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh), and all of the folks that are losing sleep over the fact that President Obama (gasp!) bowed while shaking the hand of Japanese Emperor Akihito…

Kirk Walters Bow Cartoon

…there’s a fascinating new concept we’d like to introduce to you called “SHOWING RESPECT.”

Rep. Joseph Cao Admits He’s a Closet Case

March 4th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen
Meowww, Mrs. Cao!

On Tuesday, in front of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus, Rep. Joseph Cao, the first Vietnamese-American elected to Congress, admitted to being a closet case. A “closet Democrat” that is. His exact words were:

“Don’t tell the Republicans, but I might be a closet Democrat,” said Cao to a round of laughter.

Now, this sounds like a prime example of Rep. Cao, who comes from a heavily Democratic district, panda-ring–what you’d call pandering to our people–but methinks there is another explanation.

TRANSLASIAN: “THE GOP SHIP IS A’SINKING. WE’VE GOT THE HEAD OF THE RNC KOWTOWING TO THAT CRACKHEAD RUSH LIMBAUGH AND MY RE-ELECTION IN 2010 IS A HAIR’S BREADTH AWAY. ABORT, ABORT.”
