Republicans still having trouble with the Internets  Reply with quote  

It's not that hard to understand. EVERYTHING you say or do on the Internet is recorded and will come back to haunt you.

Link (The Daily Beast)


Quote:

Note to Republicans: Racist “humor,” the Internet, and political ambitions don’t mix. Audra Shay, vice chairman of the Young Republicans and the leading candidate to be elected its chairman on Saturday, is now the latest in a growing list of GOP officials learning this lesson the hard way, based on pictures of a now-deleted Facebook page obtained by The Daily Beast.

I'm not surprised. Investing millions even billions of dollars on Facebook is no joke and i agree with anomaly.

There is a disturbing list of these things, most of which are covered on page 2 of that article. Not surprising, but disturbing nonetheless.

The Liberal's propensity to shoot themselves in the foot is amazing isn't it?

Classic turn around though. "It's those pesky political opponents who misconstrued my support for racial slurs! They did this!" Give me a fucking break. Who are these people? You didn't know coon was a racial slur? Idiots.

I thought that part was awesome. More people should be that ignorant.

I've lived in Texas 99% of my life and I've heard the premise of that word in many forms, sadly.

You wouldn't use the word "coon" to as an epithetic pronoun unless you knew what it meant. That Eric Piker kid sounds like an idiot. He couldn't even deliver his Obama/Osama line without spelling the last name wrong. I'm sort of blown away by female Republicans anyway, but whatever. The trainwreck continues.

Once, when I was a kid working on my first research project (about the American Nazi Party), I discovered an album put out by its founders in a country group called "George Lincoln Rockwell and the Coon Hunters." I think that was my first encounter with the word "coon" in that sense.

Piker isn't claiming ignorance, though. He seems unashamedly racist. It's sick that it took all the pressure possible to get her to remove him.

so we are gonna make fun of the person who was actually standing up to this racist bullshit cause she didn't know that coon was a racist term? i wish everyone didn't know it was a racist term so no one would use it.


maybe she should have looked it up first and played it off like she knew the whole time like most of you guys do.
