The "What in the Fuck did you say Motherfucker??" Item of the day

GOP Congressman, Rep.Richard Baker of Baton Rouge was overheard telling lobbysits the following, concerning Hurricane Katrina and the damage it caused:

"We finally cleaned up public housing in New Orleans. We couldn't do it, but God did."

I suddenly feel the need to travel to Louisana with a bat, a ski mask, and a getaway car. But I'm wondering how black conservatives feel about their choice of party affiliation over the past few weeks.

Oh hell no!!!!!!!Flog his ass... Some lightening or something needs to "touch" him.. If that aint the damn devil speaking....(punk ass).. I really cant believe dude said that!

HadEnuff said...

I went to this guy website and
there's no way to send him a
stank ass response to his stank
ass comment. Typical. Louisiana
is really a foul state. New
Orleans was the only place a
black person could possibly catch
a breath of fair air.
Even one of their senators made
a racist comment about why poorer
(black) residents weren't
evacuated before the storm. I can't
find the quote now, but she said it.

I guess what's really in a man's heart eventually comes out of his mouth, hunh?? I see your true colors...

Last night, a friend living in Baton Rouge told me there was some SEVERE backlash mess going on in Baton Rouge concerning the N.O. evacuees. I guess that comment proves it...

Nia said...

Good thing racism isn't alive in today's society, otherwise this comment might be taken out of context. *mumbling* asshole

Bre said...

What and asshole. I can't to hear what happens when he comes face to face with a Katrina survivor who heard about when he said.

I had a scary thought last night when watching the news coverage, and hearing the announcement that the Mayor is allowing some people to return to the city... the time is ripe for gentrification (or, as they'll euphemisize it, *redevelopment*)-- the hurricane, unfortunately, might be seen as a blessing in disguise to corporate developers.

Somehow, I think that a lot of displaced New Orleans residents will never be able to return to their homes. Sad...

melette said...

It amazes me how many stupid people are in politics. I mean, seriously. Keep your mouth shut!

Richard Stanford said...

Here is another good one. This is from Mary Landrieu - Democratic Senator from Louisiana. When asked on Fox news whether she would criticize Mayor Nagin for leaving all those school buses there instead of using them to evacuate people, she responded:

"...I will answer it. I am not going to level criticism at local and state officials. Mayor Nagin and most mayors in this country have a hard time getting their people to work on a sunny day, let alone getting them out of the city in front of a hurricane."

Say, what!? Why didn't she just come out and say that blacks are lazy, cuz that's what she meant!

It's a sad fact that despite the Democratic party claiming to help African Americans, they sure don't show it. Louisiana has been a "blue" state for nearly 55 years and been run almost exclusively by Democrats. I's like to see someone - Republican or Democrat - from the Louisiana gov't publicly pledge their relection on helping people get back into N.O. and get their lives back.

Crackpot Press said...

"getting to work" means keeping the transit system going.

Did anyone else hear that Cheney wasn't around for the first week of the 'Cane, cuz he was shopping for a house nears Rumsfeld.

YEs, it's true.

The Humanity Critic said...

I would have to heat that from another news source besides FOX news, they are known to lie continuously to protect this administration. I'll buy it if I hear it from anywhere else to be totally honest.

Plus, if it is true that she said it, she included other mayors around the country along with Nagin, so to say that it is racism is a stretch. Sounds like it was just a commentary on getting people motivated as a whole. No where near the douchebag level of blatant racism that baker displayed. Not even close actually.

Republicans are cock smokers said...

The crappy right wing definitely isn't for black people because Bush let those people die in New Orleans, thinking that his vacation was more important. The Democratic has a long way to go, but the rupublican party actually hates black folks. Get that shit straight right now.

Chele said...

Who overheard him saying that and how did you find out? I HATE stuff with no sources.

Thank you! Now I can rant and rave like everyone else

Really, doe....that is some foul ish. But that's okay because he will be judged by the same measure he is meting out now. Dummy.

I just want to say that this dude looks like a fat Patrick Swayze. Which I know matters vastly less than the fact that he is pretty much a genocidally racist US congressman, has been identified as such in a major newspaper, and yet will probably not be hurt electorally by such a comment being aired so publically...

Have you ever been to N.O.? The public housing needed to be cleaned up. Most of those buildings are barely habitable. Choose to take the comment in a racist light (it's so easy for you to do that), but reality is that the public housing that will be rebuilt after Katrina will better serve the poor community (there are white people too in public housing.) To quote yourself quit being a "lazy racist". You are not always a victim.

The Humanity Critic said...

(shaking head) More vaginal anonymous posting:

"Have you ever been to N.O.? The public housing needed to be cleaned up."

I have been to N.O, and I have been to many states where the public housing was deplorable. What's your point?

"Choose to take the comment in a racist light (it's so easy for you to do that), but reality is that the public housing that will be rebuilt after Katrina will better serve the poor community.."

Those are racist staements because the public housing was wiped out, with thousands of african americans lost in the meantime. If the housing was wiped out without lives lost then his quote "not being racist" could be debateable, but because of his history of racially insensitive statements, and the lives lost, his quote points to racism.(It is easy for me to say that, just like it is easy for your bitch ass to be posting anonymously, like a bitch. ahem)

"(there are white people too in public housing.)"

But the majority, based on a pesky detail like facts and figures, were african americans.

"To quote yourself quit being a "lazy racist"."

Wow, you are on my nuts so much you quote me from a entirely different post? Wipe your mouth sweetie, you have some white stuff on your lips. But the thing that trumps your drivel, as inbred as it is, is that Baker apologized!! If he didn't say anything wrong then why did he apologize?? Exactly, that is the sound of your douchebag rant being flushed down the toilet, dirty motherfucker!!..lol Who's next?

To further quote myself: "You just got bitchslapped in a public forum, just try not to be so cowardly about it next time"

Richard Stanford said...

Here's another complete idiot politician. This makes me madder than Bush or Cheney.

While people were suffering with no food and water, this politician uses the Military to go to his house to rescue his belongings. The National Guard truck gets stuck waiting for him, and they have to call in ANOTHER rescue truck AND a rescue helicopter!

Like this gumbo eating scumbag couldn't buy more stuff. This makes me madder than hell. He lives in a affluent, white neighborhood, too.

What's suprising is that he's black, he's a Democrat and his name.....NOT KIDDING....is William Jefferson.

The story says he is under investigation by the FBI for fraud, so I wonder if he was going back to "clean up"?

Read for yourself:

The Humanity Critic said...

Hell, abusing power is non race specific, and what he did was deplorable. But when it comes to preferrential treatment, we have learned that you can get out of Vietnam due to preferrential treatment and still become president.

At least that guy didn't say that the hurricane was a good thing, forsaking lives, just to get rid of public housing. Now that is despicable, figure that, a conservatove. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/09/09/AR2005090901930.html

But while you are just mentioning black guys as some sort of counterpoint, there are some conservatives one you can also name that don't comapre of the ignorance of Baker's statements as well.

Richard Stanford said...

You're right. No one else's actions will somehow negate Baker, who has proven himself to be a 1st class idiot.

Soul Searching said...

I'll donate to the fund to send you there to kick his ass.

miyna said...

oh, no he did not say that mess...

i'm telling you, this country is going straight to hell. period.

ManNMotion said...

Wow, finally an honest politician who actually says what he means.

Richard Stanford said...

Wouldn't you know it! Guess who:

"This city for the first time that anyone can probably imagine is drug free and violence free and we are intent on keeping that way. The bad guys have been rooted out accordingly."

Who said this? You guessed it, America's Mayor, Ray Nagin.

Translation: Katrina "took care" of crime (read: public housing), and we're not going to let the ganstas back in.

Sound familiar?

The Humanity Critic said...

Damn, you really have to dig deep to try to find anything that even comes close to rivaliing what Baker said. I hope that you are trying to be sarcastic, because if not your examples are rather lame.

I bet if you ask Nagin if he would trade in the lives lost to a "low crime rate", e would take the lives every time. He is not saying that he wanted this tragedy, but the guy has to find a silver lining somewhere.

So, wouldn't you know it, another failed attempt to find a quote more deplorable than bakers!!! Good luck with that though.

So far, no quote you produce "sounds familiar" to Baker's hatred.

Richard Stanford said...

I thought your post was geared towards pointing out a politician who made a stupid and inconsiderate remark? Who cares what color or party affiliation he/she has?

Nagin said exactly what Baker said, even going further. Nagin said "The bad guys have been rooted out accordingly." Rooted out by what? By Katrina, which was an act of God - same thing Baker said.

While Baker used a more politically correct term like "cleaned up", Nagin took no such care. He said: "This city for the first time that anyone can probably imagine is drug free and violence free."

Nagin is plainly saying that since the poor black folks in the inner city of New Orleans are gone, so is the crime and drugs.

In your own words, "Hell, abusing power is non race specific." So what you're saying in this case is that insensitive remarks ARE race specific - essentially black liberals get a pass?

Baker says it, he gets post dedicated to him. Nagin says it, albeit more bluntly, and he's looking for a "silver lining"? Why the Double Standard?

Both Baker and Nagin should be slapped, but for some reason, you want give Nagin a pass. Why?

The Humanity Critic said...

Oops, my bad. Dude, if you knew how many lunaticd troll here you would be defensive too.

"I thought your post was geared towards pointing out a politician who made a stupid and inconsiderate remark? Who cares what color or party affiliation he/she has?"

It just seems that you only come back with either black democratic quotes, some I do find deplorable, but your tactic just seems like a strange game of counterpoint with a hint of sarcasm. That's just me.

"Nagin said exactly what Baker said, even going further. Nagin said "The bad guys have been rooted out accordingly.""

But he could have been talking about the police and the national guard troops coming together and rooting out the criminal element. To guess what he implied, is again, reaching.

"Rooted out by what? By Katrina, which was an act of God - same thing Baker said."

Not really, especially since Baker has a history of saying racially insensitive things. Along with the fact that along with the "public housing" he talked about lives were lost. Not the same, sorry.

"Nagin is plainly saying that since the poor black folks in the inner city of New Orleans are gone, so is the crime and drugs."

That is silly, especially since those same black folks will be back in the area within months, so you're reaching again.

"Baker says it, he gets post dedicated to him. Nagin says it, albeit more bluntly, and he's looking for a "silver lining"? Why the Double Standard?"

1: because they aren't the same thing 2: Plainly, no disrespect, it's my motherfucking blog!!

Richard Stanford said...

" 2: Plainly, no disrespect, it's my motherfucking blog!!"

True. You do speak the truth. We'll just have to disagree on this one.

Have you ever used an escort service? I'd love to read a post about some exploits with a call girl.....

The Humanity Critic said...

Damn Rich, what a way to switch gears!!..lol I have never used a call girl service, not because I'm against "paying for sex", but for the police factor. Man, that would be embarrassing as hell to get caught with your pants down, literally..lol

Richard Stanford said...

Oh well, I thought you might have had some funny stories about tapping some "by the hour" ass in a seedy hotel room.

What if we started a legal defense fund for you to use to bail you out if you got caught? It could be your first "Blog Investiagitve Report", like thos punks at Dateline and Primetime pull?

Here's another one. Perhaps the Bush admin was a little skittish in massively increasing FEMA's budget cuz of this. This is from the LA Times - about as left-wing as you can get for a newspaper! Click to read...

http://tinyurl.com/8g7ym

Exceprts:

"...federal auditors are still trying to track as much as $60 million in unaccounted for funds that were funneled to the state (Louisianna) from the Federal Emergency Management Agency dating back to 1998."

"Keith Ashdown of Taxpayers for Common Sense, a Washington watchdog group, said recent Louisiana history showed that FEMA 'money earmarked for saving lives and homes' was instead squandered in "a cesspool of wasteful spending."

Looks like the Dems down there were diverting the levee and disaster research money on better things like improving public housing and healthcare......NOT!

Just goes to show you, Red or Blue, the politicians are gonna stick the little folk in the gut every time, especially in the "Big Easy".

The Humanity Critic said...

My man Keith Oberman breaks it all the way down, here: http://www.wimp.com/administration

This time there are no "John Kerry looks french", or "freedom fries", or "he voted for it before he voted against it" asshole rightwing spin. He fucked up and america knows it, Karl Rove can't save his miserable ass this time..lol

The Humanity Critic said...

You are giving the Bush administration too much credit. They cut the funds for FEMA for other reasons, probably to pay for wars that we didn't need to be in.

When Clinton was president, he had a legitmate guy running it who did an outstanding job.(just check his record) So the reasons in that article are NOT why they gutted FEMA, we are talking about the Bush adminsitartion here..lol

Also, he stopped the Army Corp of engineers from working on the levies, he can't run from his incompetence and people can't even apologize for him anymore.

His slow response time + gutting FEMA + him hiring two pair of tits to run it + FEMA turning away help because of the piss poor leadership = 1 Incompetent president.
