Bob Cesca A Professional Dirt-Bag?

5 03 2010

Needing a quote that I saw last night at the Huffington Post, (yes, the progressive/marxist blog) so I could finish a piece I was writing, my eyes caught the following headline… “The Tea Party Is All About Race“. As you can imagine, my blood pressure immediately went up and I began screaming obscenities at the Author of the piece, Bob Cesca. Yeah, I know he couldn’t hear me, but screaming at my PC monitor was preferable to throwing a statue that sits on my desk, through the screen.

Bob Cesca has written for the Huffington Post for quite sometime so I have become accustomed to him always taking the Marxist hardline against anything in the middle or to the right of the political spectrum. In fact, his stuff is so predictable that most of the time all you have to read is the headline and the last paragraph of whatever it is he has written, and you pretty much know the whole story. I admit to already NOT liking this guy because the stuff he promotes is bad for America, but this time he went too far, and I have two good reasons why I would like to stuff him into a garbage can.

1. He takes a few people that may be considered racist and uses them as examples to say that all Tea-Partiers are racists.  (As of today, there are 266 Tea-Party groups/organizations across the country) Bob must play a lot of RACE CARD games in his spare time.

2. He knows his headline will get thousands and thousands of marxist/progressives to come running and read his article. At the same time on the same page he is suddenly promoting his new book. I think using such a divisive, sensitive, and explosive subject to promote his book is disgusting.

Read his POS article below, then answer this question… do you think he qualifies for DIRT-BAG status?

The Tea Party Is All About Race

I was going to open this piece with an analogy about the tea party groups and why they’re treated seriously by the press and the Republicans. The analogy would go something like: “Imagine [insert left-wing activist group here] getting a serious profile in a mainstream newspaper, and imagine serious Democratic politicians appearing at their convention.”

The problem is, when I really evaluated what the various far-left activist groups are all about and compared them with the tea party movement, there really wasn’t any equivalency. At all.

Because when you strip away all of the rage, all of the nonsensical loud noises and all of the contradictions, all that’s left is race. The tea party is almost entirely about race, and there’s no comparative group on the left that’s similarly motivated by bigotry, ignorance and racial hatred.

I hasten to note that I’m talking about real racism, insofar as it’s impossible for the majority race — the 70 percent white majority — to be on the receiving end of racism. That is unless white males, for example, are suddenly an oppressed racial demographic. But judging by the racial composition of, say, the Senate or AM talk radio or the cast members playing the Obamas on SNL, I don’t think white people have anything to worry about.

This isn’t an epiphany by any stretch. From the beginning, with their witch doctor imagery, watermelon agitprop and Curious George effigies, the wingnut right has been dying to blurt out, as Lee Atwater famously said, “nigger, nigger, nigger!”

But they can’t.

Strike that. Correction. TeaParty.org founder Dale Robertson brandished a sign with the (misspelled) word “niggar.” So they’re not even as restrained as the generally unstrung Atwater anymore.

Most of the time, they merely imply the use of the word. Rush Limbaugh referring to the president as a “black man-child,” for example. Every week, a new example pops up on the radio and somehow the offenders are able to keep their job while Howard Stern is fined for saying the comparatively innocuous word “blumpkin.” Limbaugh, on the other hand, can stoke racial animosity on his show by suggesting that health care reform is a civil rights bill — reparations — and no one seems to mind. And no, the impotence isn’t an adequate Karmic punishment for Limbaugh’s roster of trespasses.

The tea party is an extension of talk radio. It’s an extension of Fox News Channel. It’s an extension of the southern faction of the Republican Party — the faction that gave us the Southern Strategy, the Willie Horton ad, the White Hands ad and the racially divisive politics of Lee Atwater and Karl Rove. It’s an extension of the race-baiting and, often, the outright racism evident in all of those conservative spheres.

But unlike the heavy-handedness of Dale Robertson and others, the tea party followers are generally more veiled about why they’re so outraged by our current president.

In the New York Times this past weekend, David Barstow profiled a teabagger from Idaho:

SANDPOINT, Idaho — Pam Stout has not always lived in fear of her government. She remembers her years working in federal housing programs, watching government lift struggling families with job training and education. She beams at the memory of helping a Vietnamese woman get into junior college.
But all that was before the Great Recession and the bank bailouts, before Barack Obama took the White House by promising sweeping change on multiple fronts, before her son lost his job and his house. Mrs. Stout said she awoke to see Washington as a threat, a place where crisis is manipulated — even manufactured — by both parties to grab power.

 

Now you might be saying to yourself, I don’t see the racism here. But if you eliminate all of the reasons for Stout’s participation in the tea party movement as being contradictory or nonsensical, all that’s left is race.

Let’s deconstruct.

She claims to be against the bank bailouts, but the tea party is against the president’s bank fee designed to recover the TARP money. They also appear to be against financial regulatory reform. None of this makes any sense. If tea partiers are against the bailouts, basic logic dictates that they ought to be in favor of getting the money back. Or do they prefer that the banks keep the money and orchestrate further meltdowns? Honestly, I’m not even entirely sure they realize that the bailouts and the recovery act (stimulus) are two different things. But they’re also against the recovery act — you know, whatever that is.

She also told the New York Times that she’s tired of politicians “manufacturing crisis.”

Right. Three things here.

First, where was she — where were the teabaggers — when the far-right endorsed and supported a massive increase in the size of government, unitary executive power grabs and unconstitutional measures fueled by fear-mongering over the very remote threat of terrorism? Crickets chirping. The odds of being killed in an airborne terrorist attack are literally 1 in 10 million. You’re much more likely to kill yourself than to be killed by a terrorist.

Second, I refuse to believe that health care is a “manufactured crisis.” People are going broke and dying every day. Even the most conservative estimates show that there are 9/11-level casualties each month due to a lack of adequate health insurance. The horror stories are readily available online. Just Google “health insurance horror story” and see how manufactured the crisis is.

Third, look at any bar graph of the economy as of one year ago or any basic jobs number and tell me if the crisis is manufactured. Hell, Pam Stout’s son lost his house! How can she possibly suggest the economic crisis was manufactured?

I hate to single out one person, but Stout’s incongruous anger is indicative of the entire movement.

From the outset, the tea party was based on a contradictory premise (the original tea party was a protest against a corporate tax cut). And when you throw out all of the nonsense and contradictions, there’s nothing left except race. There’s no other way to explain why these people were silent and compliant for so long, and only decided to collectively freak out when this “foreign” and “exotic” president came along and, right out of the chute, passed the largest middle class tax cut in American history — something they would otherwise support, for goodness sake, it was $288 billion in tax cuts! — we’re left to deduce no other motive but the ugly one that lurks just beneath the pale flesh, the tri-corner hats and the dangly tea bag ornamentation.

Irrespective of whether the president passed a huge tax cut or went out of his way to bring Republicans into the health care process, the seeds of racial animosity from the far-right were sown during the campaign. In those lines waiting for then-vice presidential candidate and current tea party heroine Sarah Palin, their loud noises spread the pre-scripted lies, lies that entirely hinged on the president’s African heritage. A white candidate would never be accused of being a secret Muslim. A white candidate would never be accused of being a foreign usurper. Only a black candidate with a foreign name would be accused of “palling around with domestic terrorists.”

In the final analysis, when you boil away all of the weirdness, it becomes clear that the teabaggers are pissed because there isn’t yet another doddering old white guy in the White House — like they’re used to. That’s what this is all about.

Raaaaaaaaaaaacist…blah blah blah. Typical when you can’t argue w/facts you just play the race card.

“But judging by the racial composition of, say, the Senate or AM talk radio or the cast members playing the Obamas on SNL, I don’t think white people have anything to worry about.” Um, he forgot to include MSNBC anchors…

“went out of his way to bring Republicans into the health care process” HA HA HA, yeah 13 months after trying to ram it down our throats he’s trying to get RINOs to suck it up.

“Only a black candidate with a foreign name would be accused of “palling around with domestic terrorists.” This guy checks his facts about as well as the NY Times.

whatever, I’m sure his book will be a best seller…NOT!

Thanks!!!

UPDATE: I just came from his dumbass site and found that he had already put a link to my rant in his latest musing about the reaction he’s getting from his racist article. He linked with a quickie… “There’s also this one. Though he’s violating digital copyright laws by reprinting my entire essay without permission.

UPDATE: I shortened his piece of crap essay. I would hate to violate a law or his little feelings.

Total scumbag, hypocrite maximus, Bob Cesca.

He whines incessantly about race, while at the same time mocks Boehner’s skin color, and posts pictures of George Bush next to a chimp, to try and note similarities.

“In fact, his stuff is so predictable that most of the time all you have to read is the headline and the last paragraph of whatever it is he has written, and you pretty much know the whole story”

Always!!!

Then he bans you from his site(s) when you disagree. Of course they 1st label you a troll…then comes the ban.

That’s not surprising, he and his ilk follow Alinsky’s rules which teaches them to take-no-prisoners, because they must control the argument. If they don’t control the argument they know they can never win.

Nicely done, Gio.

With these leftists, when all else fails, throw the race card.

Oddly enough, I think they’ve overplayed it so badly that everyone is becoming desensitized to the accusation (especially a false one) of racism.

Oh the irony.

6 03 2010

Hey Blonde,

I was just cruising through your new blog. What’s this about you forgetting the map? Oh, and the Nissan brake-pin thingy. Don’t worry about it.

Being called a racist really gets under my skin (applause pause for intended pun). The lefties may have overplayed the race card, but I still don’t like it one bit. The policies of the Democrats in congress over the last 40 years have always been to keep minorities on one plantation or another. This way the Dems can blame the plight of minorities on the GOP to garner their vote. Some minorities have woken up to what the Dems have been doing, but they have a hard time breaking through the wall of ignorance the left has helped to build. I could go on for hours on this subject, but I won’t.

Let’s just say… If anyone were to call me a racist to my face, they would need an Emergency room shortly thereafter!

Gio-

P.S. Now go have fun on your trip darn it!

Blonde

Back atcha, Gio,

Ha! I don’t forget much, I’d linked the map elsewhere, it was just Iguana Man getting some content. The brake pin thingy, well, we’ll check again in Houston, but I’m not too worried. We leave on Friday. It’s been cold here, so our outdoor stuff to do has been backed up. Thank you Al Gore! Coldest winter ever in Fla. that I can remember.

Nobody likes being called a racist, but when the leftists and media continue to throw it because you wear a pink t-shirt or some nonsense, it loses its shock value.

I’m waiting for your next rant. How about this: He has failed, will he ever take responsibility? I ask this for two reasons, (1) I saw a bit channel surfing, I think it was Cal Thomas’ show, where they showed a clip of the Vain Obama blathering that if health care reform failed, it would be the media’s fault, and (2) it’s time to change my tag, and I thought that was suitable.

Finally….I see you have some Kosbots here who are dying to make their case, has this been going on long?

Cheers,

B.

It wouldn’t surprise me, one bit, if America learns that Cesca was “Tea-Bagged” as a young man and possibly, just never got over it. Any Corksucker, of this stature, should be used to being tea-bagged. Cesca, in my opinion, is a grade “A” bonafide “TOOL”!!!

Bob Cesca: The Tea Party is All About Race, Part 2 | Twitmerlin - News, Celebs Gossip, Social Media

[…] Last week, I wrote a piece about the tea party movement and the obvious through-line of race, race-baiting, racism and the use of the Southern Strategy within the movement. The responses were mostly positive and supportive, while the responses from the far-right and tea party people were predictably obnoxious, contradictory and fact-free. […]

Marco01

If Tea Partiers are so opposed to racism, why don’t I ever hear a strong denunciation against the racists among them? They always seem to just deny them or make excuses.

And calling liberals/progressives Marxists is nothing more that name calling designed to silence the opposition.

Liberals/Progressives believe in the power of a properly regulated free market to provide the most prosperity for the most people but that it is not the answer to all our problems. Sometimes government is the solution. FYI, Marxists believe that government is the only solution and are completely opposed to the free market, a bit of a difference, no? I hope that clears it up, probably not.

11 03 2010
DCG

You don’t hear strong denunciation against them because you aren’t listening to the right press. The SRM doesn’t give a conservative’s point of view (rarely), they are about promoting the liberal agenda.

“Liberals/Progressives believe in the power of a properly regulated free market to provide the most prosperity for the most people” bwahahahaha…put down the kool-aid.

“Sometimes government is the solution” Yeah, that works well with the Post Office, Medicare, Medicaid, Welfare, etc. They are sooooo prosperous. Cut the govt size in half and you could get twice as much work done for half the cost thru the private sector.

“Cut the govt size in half and you could get twice as much work done for half the cost thru the private sector.”

Of course. That’s why services provided by KBR, Halliburton and the other thieves are so much better than the military. Why don’t you support our troops?

Wow take a flipping week off from the blog only to come back and find we have been taken over by some real freaking garbage… Wow Gio , what the hell have you done?????? And when have you ever removed or altered a post Gio???? Are you watching our backs again, for our own good?????? If so, I think you have missed a few…
As for the article, I know I am not a racist and I have attended tea parties… I wonder what they call all of our Black tea party goers???? Are they race traders or uncle Tom’s?????
I actually think ALL those that apposed George Bush should be heading up the tea parties since obama has done a trillion times what George ever did and only in a years time… Where are they now?????
When someone can name 1 government ran program that is not costing more than expected and actually running like Americans were told it would I might take the time to listen to what they had to say but they cannot BECAUSE there are not ANY……… Fannie and Freddy are prime examples of total governemt FAILURE…….. If it were not for them, our housing market would not be what it is today…. IN THE TOILET……
I have read our constitution over and over and no where does it say we are entitled to any health care of any kind…. What it does say is, I am free to go after whatever makes me happy in my life, AS LONG AS I WORK FOR IT…….. AND THAT OUR GOVERNMENT HAS LIMITED INVOLVEMENT……..
