What a Joke!

Here we go again, the racist tag thrown around to belittle someone that you don't agree with. Yay journalism!

CPAC Speaker Bashes Obama, in Racial Tones by KATE ZERNIKE

How can conservatives win the youth vote that overwhelmingly went for Barack Obama in 2008? At the Conservative Political Action Conference, apparently, some are betting on using racial stereotypes.

In a panel appealing to conservatives under 30, Jason Mattera, author of a forthcoming book called “Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation,” likened the gathering to “our Woodstock.”

“Except that unlike the last gathering, our women are beautiful, we speak in complete sentences and our notion of freedom doesn’t consist of snorting cocaine,” he said, “which is certainly one thing that separates us from Barack Obama.”


He then mocked what he described, with a Chris Rock voice, as “diversity,” including, he said, college classes on “cyber feminism” and “what it means to be a feminist new black man.”

Now that you have read that, listen to Jason Mattera's speech... Go ahead and skip to 3:30 where he does his 'Chris Rock' voice. Did you hear it? No? Try again...

Here how I see it, first of all, if he is doing a Chris Rock impression, it is the the worst I have ever heard.

Second, the guy is from Brooklyn, and like a few people from around there, he has a bit of an accent... I could tell no difference from how he talked at the beginning to how he talked at the end. That is, as far as I can tell, how he talks.

Third, if he was doing a 'voice', I would have called it more of a Christopher Walken. But since Christopher Walken is a white guy, it is harder to label him as 'racist' for doing that.

Of course in the comments, the liberal lemmings take the bait like sharks to chum.

What can I say? This is almost as disgusting as Sarah Palin's VP campaign rallies.


Let's face it, there's no way around it,. the Republican Party is the old southern dixie-crat, un-repentent, segrationists in a new suit.


i know who rupaul and barney frank, but who's jason mattera? (i can safely guess i can continue not knowing who he is.)

[or what the shift-key is... Sorry, back to the comments]

These folks have no ideas, no policy proposals, no solutions, and they are left with all that they are good at - name calling - disgraceful!

Woo! we got Palin in the first comment! How many of them do you think heard the guy actually speak? How many of them said like stuff about Bush?

Seriously, there was not one ounce of racism in there. He is just a guy that isn't too happy with the president that is currently in office. There is nothing wrong with that is there?

Can I only dislike the policies and actions of presidents or people that are of the same race as me? I wonder how Kate Zernike feels towards Clarence Thomas? What 'voice' does she use when discussing his rulings...

BTW, here is a link to Jason Mattera's book, Obama Zombies: How the Obama Machine Brainwashed My Generation.

I just pre-ordered one. He can thank Kate Zernike for pointing me his way.
