Is Tommy Christopher Punking Us?

A lot of the supposedly "professional" news websites engage in traffic-whoring games. For example, posting lots of celebrity/sex stuff (Huffington Post), with computer-generated SEO headlines (also the Huffington Post).

Another game is the ludicrous trolling headline -- a headline designed to troll partisans from the other side.

See, look: Traffic is nonpartisan. Money is nonpartisan. Cranking up your hit count puts money in your pocket, even if you have to enlist partisans from the other side to do so.

So a game has emerged, especially on the left, of just writing the most absurd Troll Headline possible.

Please don't go over to Mediaite for this. Let's not play. But I will "credit," ahem, Tommy Christopher for his, ahem, "writing." And quote all you need to know of it.

Don't bother going over to comment about what a dickbag he is -- he knows he's a dickbag. He intends to be a dickbag. Being a dickbag gets him traffic and praise from his dickbag bosses.

If you want him to know he's a dickbag, don't worry, I'll tell him on Twitter later. And he responds, because he's always so afraid that They're all gonna laugh at you, they're all gonna laugh at you. If you have a good "You're a dickbag" comment, I'll pass it along to him.

Anyway, here's the risible troll headline:

Mitt Romney’s ‘Obama Isn’t Working’ Banner Evokes Racial Stereotypes

Let's note what we always note, and we always note it because it's true: This didn't occur to us. We weren't the ones whose minds immediately sprang to the notion that some minorities don't like working.

That was Tommy Christoper -- but he's not a racist, and you are.

We just thought it was a halfway decent linkage of several notions: 1, Obama actually doesn't work much, with his golf and his vacations, 2, the country isn't working much, due to Obama's policies, and 3, Obama's in over his head he's not working out.

But for Tommy Christopher -- the man who is so anti-racist he must become a raging racist for the Good of the Community -- immediately leaps at hoary stereotypes from the 1940s.

The slogan is a multiple entendre, but one of those entendres, intentionally or not, is evocative of a nasty racial stereotype about black men.

When I first saw the banner this afternoon, the multiple meanings were clear: President Obama‘s policies aren’t working, the Obama presidency isn’t working, President Obama…isn’t working, as in, doing any work.

Uh, obviously. This is what I just said. The obvious intended meaning.

That’s not a nice thing to say about any president, but like it or not, it becomes a more loaded accusation when leveled at our first black president.

Why is it loaded?

Look, I don't happen to believe that a black person cannot be criticized. That is pure condescension, and all condescension is the result of a strong feeling of superiority.

This is the way you'd treat children or the mentally impaired.

Does Tommy Christopher think a black man -- even one who is serving as President of the United States of America -- must be condescended to as if he were a slow child?

Gold stars for the mental gimp?

I don't agree with this. I think this is every bit as racist as the cruder, more direct, and ultimately more honest ravings of Kluxer.

Tommy is instead dishonestly masquerading his transparent disdain for the capabilities of blacks in the guise of being "sensitive" and "anti-racist."

Here is how we treat normal, legally-competent people: We judge their job performance, we rate them, we criticize them.

If Obama, whether by race (as Tommy seems to think) or by lack of talent and intelligence, fails to rise to the level of "normal, legally-competent person whose performance can be judged as anyone else's might be," Obama cannot be President.

Sorry, that's a base-minimum qualification: If you're so incompetent that it is mean-spirited to say you're incompetent, you're too incompetent to hold the job in the first place.

As Obama said: "They talk about me as if I was a dog."

Just to be sure it wasn’t just me, though, I asked several friends...

Oh, this should prove, scientifically, this is in no way a silly, racially condescending conceit.

...about the banner, and four out of four pointed out, unprompted, the stereotype of the “lazy,” “shiftless” black man. One of the people I called was cable news fixture Goldie Taylor, who, upon hearing my description of the banner, said “Are you kidding me? You have got to be kidding me.”

Complete side-point here, but there was once an age when we identified people by their skill-set or profession -- plumber, engineer, entrepreneur, cop -- rather than non-descriptors like "cable news fixture."

Kim Kardashian is a cable news fixture. This description doesn't really pin it down for me.

Wikiepedia says she's a "social critic," editor of a website called "The Grio," and, yes, a "cable news personality."

I guess I'm having trouble with that as a job descriptor -- "Personality."

Anyway, what is she a "fixture" on cable TV to talk about? I looked up her YouTube clips. First one, "the Racist Roots" of Trump's birth certificate charge. Third one, her wearing a hoodie while talking to Lawrence O'Donnell about Trayvon Martin, demanding that the Sanford Chief of Police be suspended for not arresting Zimmerman.

So: Her "social criticism" is pretty much just calling "RAAACIST" on everything.

And this is the person whose sage counsel Tommy Christopher sought out to make sure "it wasn't just him" thinking Romney was a racist.

Now, in a way, all the above is pointless; if he hadn't asked Goldie Taylor, he could have asked another bud like, I don't know, Matthew Yglesias, and would have, of course, got the same answer.

Pretty much all of Tommy Christopher's friends think exactly the same things, because, see, they're diverse.

I can't figure out if this stupidity is just Tommy Christopher being stupid and self-unaware as usual (it's true, Tommy-- as the unexamined life isn't worth living, unexamined thoughts aren't worth having), or if this is some kind of crafty Secondary Trolling beneath the Primary Trolling Layer.

Anyway.

One other observation here: Because the media is so liberal, a conservative really doesn't have to engage in gross overstatement and stupidity to seem different from the media. Just posting an unreported fact (like "Obama ate a dog") is enough to differentiate oneself from the media.

But if the media is liberal, as it is, what's a liberal troll like Tommy Christopher to do to get attention? He can't just say what the media is saying.

No, he's got to say things that are even 40% stupider than what the media's saying. To garner attention from a public already drowning in liberal bias, he needs to be extreme and, indeed, rather absurd.

Eh.

And yet people like Tommy Christopher and his Very Good Friend Goldie Taylor are acceptable voices as far as the media is concerned, but no one in the media will ever call me for a quote.

Because, see, I'm the one who's unreasonable, illogical, and partisan.

Bonus: You'll not be surprised to learn there might be some double-standards in play here. For when Obama made merry of Romney's use of the word "marvelous," Tommy Christopher asked, approvingly, gilddily: Did Obama Just Play the "White Guy" Card on Romney?

And s/he thought that was just TEH ROXXOR.

I wouldn't know half as many racial stereotypes if white liberals weren't constantly teaching them to me.

I interpreted "Obama isn't working" as a form of "this relationship isn't working." He's verbally abusive, and physical abuse is in the works. He's spending all our money, and telling us we're stupid for not giving him more. Fuck this, we're outta here.

51 I think this hypersensitivity about race may reveal the left's Achilles heel. Their policies always fail so they need a leader who cannot be criticized merely because their policies always fail. in 2004 they chose Kerry because Kerry was a war hero and couldn't be criticized (yet somehow he was). Now we've got Obama who cannot be criticized because of his race. If it turns out that he can be criticized, what are they going to do then? Run a black single mother with AIDS and a felony record? A developmentally disabled homeless alcoholic? Who is left who is impervious to criticism?

1) I seriously think, after knowing some far lefties, that it is their innate (albeit primitive) instinct to cry racist/foul against anyone or anything (man-made global warming).

Think of how when our stomach growls, we react - hungry; need to eat.

2) This headline trolling thing is trickling out to the broader, and so-called more respected outlets, and I have to say I have been busted from both deceptive sides of the coin. Some headlines look like a piece we would like to read, and it turns out to be a play on words where conservatives are bashed into the ground with a sledgehammer.

The problem is - with all of this deception, how do we really get a balanced analysis of the news? I really do like to read/see and analyze both sides of the story; from more than one perspective, and more than one source, and it's getting tougher. (The reason I like RealClearPolitics.)

It doesn't matter what you say about Obama or any of his fellow "people of color (so long as those colors don't include shades of white, pink, or yellow);" it'll still be deemed racist. I could create a website called "Obama is Awesome," and somehow it would be skewered for being racist.

83 Liberals are the biggest racists out there. They're the ones who believe that blacks, latinos, gays, women, et al cannot make it on their own talents and ambition. That's pretty damned racist (for the race bit. It's homophobic for the gays and sexist for the women).

Can't call Obama a failure, either. Cannot use the word failure at all.

Why? Because it has racial overtones.

I can prove it.

Black teens have a much higher disproportionate rate of failure in schools.

88 The attorney for George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watchman who shot and killed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, says his client wants to meet with the teen's parents.

The Martin family on Friday sat in the same courtroom as Zimmerman, who was granted a $150,000 bond, for the first time, but the Martin family attorney said they will not meet with Zimmerman.

Benjamin Crump said the Martin family attended the hearing at the request of special prosecutor Angela Corey.

92 Hah. I just wrote this on Sunday. Saw the headlines on Memeorandum and laughed.

“What about the nuclear weapon?”

“The New Tone?”

“What’s The New Tone?”

“It’s brilliant. You rail against gotcha journalism and personal politics. It’s a very strong weapon, because it also boosts your street cred: you’re taking on your own colleagues.”

“Why, you could even take us to task—you know, the old beltway mentality where politics is a game, that sort of thing.”

“I can’t do that!”

“Oh, don’t knock it, it’s very effective. And don’t worry about the journalists you mention: everyone understands it. The journalists you’re tasking will even join in your call for civility.”

“A new tone.”

“Even though yesterday they were telling Louisiana Lyndie she should have had an abortion rather than birth that monstrosity on the world, and tomorrow they’ll attack the opposition again. But today, they’re champions of The New Tone.”

“There’s no stopping The New Tone.”

“If it’s so effective, why not use it all the time?”

“No! You don’t want to wear out such an effective weapon.”

“Remember the Race Card? It was amazing. No flyover politician ever dared criticize their opponent, if their opponent was a liberal minority.”

“They couldn’t even claim that their opponent was less qualified. Pure racism, that.”

“But we overused it, it barely has any effect nowadays.”

“Some gentlemen of the old school across the aisle still abide by it, but gentlemen in politics are rare today.”

“They don’t win reelection.”


Maybe I should add, “So don’t overuse it. We don’t want people to laugh at us like they laugh at Tommy Christopher.”

I've been reading Dean Koontz's biography of his dog Trixie, A Little Big Life, which I am quite enjoying. But anyway, Koontz also talks about his own life. One of his first jobs, back when he was a starry eyed idealist, was working with a federal anti-poverty program designed to help educate the less fortunate. He was only there a short while before he discovered that the project was just a dumping ground to excuse the violent and to provide a source of funds for the corrupt. The experience caused him to have a deep seeded suspicion of government and politicians.

Can you name a free-thinking Democrat leader? One that does not go all-in for global warming, political correctness, green energy, wealth redistribution, higher taxes and bigger government?

Some Republicans and some conservatives believe in some of those things, but ALL Democrat leaders believe in ALL of those things. They are as doctrinaire as Communists.

Couldn't find one, so I went to Cafe Press and made my own. Just a white oval, black letters, ABO.
My kids saw it when they were home from spring break. My daughter stormed into the house and said "Mom, you are such a RACIST! I can't believe you have that racist sticker on your car! You have to take it off! Right now!"
I said, you know I don't like Obama, and I can't see what's offensive about wanting to vote for someone other than him.
She shrieked, "You don't understand! That's a racial slur in Australia, for aborigines! You can't drive around with that, it's offensive! You have to take that off!"
Sigh. Perhaps that's why I couldn't find one ready-made. Did everybody but me know this?
