Pity The Poor White Man




Posted at 20:54 by Tintin

Shorter George Picard, The American Genius:
How Obama Betrays Martin Luther’s King’s Dream

    • To celebrate Martin Luther King day, here are five incompetent niggers and two worthless spicks that Obama hired just because of their skin color.

Of course, no Martin Luther King holiday would be complete without some poor oppressed white guy doing the tried and true schtick about how it’s the niggers that are the real racists, particularly the colored usurper in the White House who has spent the last four years taking America away from true Americans and giving it to his black buddies. Meet George Picard, who writes under a pseudonym at The American Genius for obvious reasons

President Obama has mocked Martin Luther King by policies and actions that judge people by the color of their skin and not by the content of their character. … Among his dreams was an America where his four children would be judged not “by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”

You might be forgiven for imagining that King was expressing a desire that his children could eat at any lunch counter and sit anywhere on the bus, but only if you are a Negro-oppressed white man will you realize that King was in fact expressing a prophetic condemnation of affirmative action and that he lived in abject terror that his children might get into college with lower SATs than their white counterparts.

The man who campaigned on the theme that there was no “white America” or “black America” has used his powers as President to practice identity politics on a scale never before seen in America. Barack Obama has overtly chosen top officials on the basis of their skin color and not on the content of their character.

Because no president before Obama has ever chosen a white person of low character for public office and even if they had it was purely coincidental that they were white.

Of course, first stop on Picard’s white outrage tour is that wild-eyed, Black Panther loving Eric Holder whom

Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer has called him one of the most incompetent attorney generals in American history

Both Kraphammer and Picard have apparently forgotten all about John Mitchell, which would, of course, have absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Mitchell was, you know, white.

And don’t forget, while we’re being outraged, that uppity Negress at the EPA, Lisa Jackson:

She is blithely unconcerned that Congressmen have taken her to task for performance.

If she were truly competent (and white), she would immediately step down the moment someone in the opposition party criticized her.

When Obama went looking for a Supreme Court Justice is was so obvious that he had a very narrow filter of who would “qualify” that Time’s Mark Halperin wrote that “White Men Need Not Apply.”

And, of course, like Martin Luther King, George Picard and Mark Halperin, I too have a dream that I will live to see the day when there is finally a white man on the Supreme Court.

    Yeah, Kraphammer’s indictment settles it – I’m sure he gave an extensive and exhaustive not to mention objective analysis to support that conclusion. And what about Gonzalaez? Oh, right – he ain’t exactly white.

    I can understand the Republican dilemma when it comes to King’s speech.

    When all you have to offer the world are hollow, empty, vacuous shells desperately attempting to resemble real live human beings and failing, it’s troublesome if they’re going to be judged on content. Therefore, because everything is projection, they have to assume everyone else is as hollow and devoid of being as they are; and as a result, the only justification for why someone would select a woman or minority over the cold emptiness of their souls is because the person making the selection is prejudiced against them.

    Because hey, we’re all empty on the inside, but I’m a white male on the outside, so that means I’m superior, right?

    I “love” how their whines always devolve into “no black man is qualified for any position*” to show how its “always affirmative action” and “they’re always so incompetent and unqualified.” Yeah, those Obama appointees are so incompetent, we have so many “Heckuva job Brownie” moments to look upon. Oh wait, no, they are doing a competent job even when handling a broken system given to them by Bush, but see, they are black and thus incompetent. Because it’d be a tremendous blow to their self-esteem and their view of self-superiority over all black people if it turns out that black people can be competent and just as good.

    Of course, this is just a long way of saying that people who recognize that competent individuals need not be white are the real racists.

    *Except Clarence Thomas and the handful of tokens the right chooses because of their skin color because they think it will serve as a counter to all charges of racism.

    Speaking as a person of Pallor, I must say that I am not offended in any way that none of my people have been chosen for high office in the U.S, government. As I would certainly never appoint any people of the United States to high (or any) office in the government of Pallor.

    Well, that’s basically what they really object to. They’ve gotten a great ride because everyone else has been shut out and they’re looking around at who the least competent suckers who’ll be in trouble if there’s an actual fair assessment of ability and are starting to cotton to the fact that “holy shit, it’s me”.

    Hence all the screaming about how anyone with a vagina or melaninated skin is inherently inferior. It’s the only thing protecting their overpaid, underqualified employments. And thus their right to sneer at anyone further down the ladder.

    A bullet from the back of a bush took Medgar Evers’ blood
    A finger fired the trigger to his name
    A handle hid out in the dark
    A hand set the spark
    Two eyes took the aim
    Behind a man’s brain
    But he can’t be blamed
    He’s only a pawn in their game

    A South politician preaches to the poor white man
    “You got more than the blacks, don’t complain.
    You’re better than them, you been born with white skin,” they explain.
    And the Negro’s name
    Is used it is plain
    For the politician’s gain
    As he rises to fame
    And the poor white remains
    On the caboose of the train
    But it ain’t him to blame
    He’s only a pawn in their game

    The deputy sheriffs, the soldiers, the governors get paid
    And the marshals and cops get the same
    But the poor white man’s used in the hands of them all like a tool
    He’s taught in his school
    From the start by the rule
    That the laws are with him
    To protect his white skin
    To keep up his hate
    So he never thinks straight
    ’Bout the shape that he’s in
    But it ain’t him to blame
    He’s only a pawn in their game

    From the poverty shacks, he looks from the cracks to the tracks
    And the hoofbeats pound in his brain
    And he’s taught how to walk in a pack
    Shoot in the back
    With his fist in a clinch
    To hang and to lynch
    To hide ’neath the hood
    To kill with no pain
    Like a dog on a chain
    He ain’t got no name
    But it ain’t him to blame
    He’s only a pawn in their game.

    Today, Medgar Evers was buried from the bullet he caught
    They lowered him down as a king
    But when the shadowy sun sets on the one
    That fired the gun
    He’ll see by his grave
    On the stone that remains
    Carved next to his name
    His epitaph plain:
    Only a pawn in their game

    So, semi-progressive President appoints semi-progressive people to posts, where they enact lukewarm progressive policies. This, of course, means they’re incompetent.

    Because they do things he doesn’t approve of that means they’re incompetent.

    Also rösti, Spanish potato tortilla, and colcannon are all good. Plus cooked potato bits are nice fondue dippers. Potatoes are also great on pizza, either sliced thin and fried in rosemary/garlic/pepper oil, or mashed with scallions, cilantro, etc for a kind of open face bolani. And of course, soup. Potage Parmentier is what I usually do, or roasted cauliflower/leek/potato.

    Tig’s list is excellent UNTIL PIZZA which is just wrong. Latkes are good, especially if you can make them look like bird’s nests. Røsti is fantastic but is pretty specific about the kind of potato you use and you have to have cold leftover cooked potatoes. Colcannon is improved by fresh greens (sorrel, claytonia, ramps, things unlikely to be available at this time of year). I like to make duchess potatoes but that’s a job (papas duquesas!).

    AWESOME, thanks, everybody. I was actually looking for side dish recipes, but IMO you can’t have too many potato recipes in the queue. I will be adding all these to mine.

    Taking a break. LaRousse, IIRC, has 99 preps for spuds.

    Spuds savoyarde (no autocorrect, I did NOT mean sabotaged) made with some nice herbs and good stock are nice. What’s dat Indian dish with spuds and cauli… aloo gobi? That’s very good. Do you have a small cast iron skillet? If so you can make potatoes Anna on the stovetop. Oh man, potatoes Anna! Potato gallettes are nice. Cube smallishly and saute in butter/oil then add fresh parsley. French fried potatoes persillade are to fucking die for. Kick up your scalloped by making a pave. Slice thinly on a mandoline, lay on a buttered sheet pan, sprinkle with salt and lay a bit of fresh herb – parsley leaves, tender thyme sprigs, tarragon – and top with another slice; brush tops with melted butter and put into a hot oven for chic potato panes. Potato fucking salad? French or American style, both are great. Basic Leek and potato soup or creme vichysoisse glace are equally easy and delightful. Spanish omelet. Garlic mashed potates. Pommes de terre Macair which you can glaze for potatoes Byron. German fried. German potato salad. Savonnette. Pommes de terre soufflées are fascinating, a real tour de force. Twice baked – add some lemon to the mashed part. Homemade loyal chips! Easy, deefuckinglicous, magical even.

    Umm, along with the other suggestions (but most definitely NOT pizza) that’s all I can think of right now. And I hafta get back to house cleaning.

    Of course it doesn’t have sauce, it has the rosemary/garlic/pepper oil. And only Parmesan, and not too much at that. The bolani one also doesn’t have sauce because the potatoes are the sauce, and no cheese but it’s drizzled with yogurt/mint/garlic sauce. Also too no thick crusts, more like a flat bread.

    Alas, it is possible to have bad pizza that just plain isn’t good at all.

    One time I was some place where the sauce maker must’ve had a cold or something, because there was far, FAR more anise in the sauce than needed. I like black licorice, but when I bite into a slice of pizza I don’t expect or want it to taste like black licorice…

    Latkes. Shred your potatoes, reds or whites, not bakers, shred half a yellow onion while you’re at it. Soak in salted water with a pinch of baking soda for 15-20 minutes. Drain and press all water out in a clean towel. Beat an egg and add a couple of tablespoons shmaltz or butter, thoroughly mix with shredded spuds and onion, salt and pepper. Heat griddle, flat-top or large skillet to very low heat, ~265F. Form bird’s nests from the shredded veg, form lightly into discs and place on greased (shmaltz! or butter) griddle. Cook on griddle, very low heat for 10 minutes, flip. They should be golden brown on the bottom and hold together. Cook for 8-10 minutes and turn off heat. Make whatever you’re going to serve with them.

    Suggestion: latkes benedict/florentine, cook 60g bacon or pancetta, add 1/4kilo spinach, cover and turn off heat. Press liquid from spinach/pancetta mixture. Serve each latke with a blanket of spinach, a poached egg and cover with hollandaise.

    Yesterday I was in “don’t gibe a shit” mood and we came near to ordering out for pizza. I manned up and took some chix this out of the freezer, defrosted, tossed ‘em in a pan with a we’e bit of Olivia and a handful of garlic cloves. After a decent sautéing I added some honey and preserved lemons. A bit more cooking led to removing the thighs then adding some white wine (vermouth, yeah) and a big-ass dollop of butter. Served over rice cooked in some leftover roasted chix broth. Tasty.

    Tonight we got stuffed green peppers, Classic eastern euro food, slightly jazzed for American tastes, and a lovely salad salad with roasted golden beets.

    Sitting on the ramp in Casper. Memphis is on weather hold. Even the control tower crew has gone home.

    During a test flight last Summer, we had our test airplane all nice and crippled, per Extended-Range (ETOPS) test requirements, and were approaching a certain airfield (which I will not identify) at twilight. This also happened to be that tower’s closing time. While we were turning, in our crippled state, to make approach, the tower voice announced he was going home, and passed us to sector control. (He kindly warned everyone else up there to watch for our heavy experimental jetliner, without noting we were having self-inflicted problems.)

That disaster has ignited a huge debate in our ranks, on the subject of human factors and automation in the flight deck.

    Made it to Memphis, over an hour late.

    All “Centers” control en route traffic above a certain altitude (which I’d have to look up). We talked to several Denver sectors, then Kansas City before we got to Memphis’ airspace.

    As you descend towards the airport you get handed off to Approach control for vectors to the final approach. Shortly before landing you’re switched to the tower controller, who owns the runways. Then a ground controller and finally the company’s ramp controller to get to a parking spot.

    Whichever pilot isn’t flying that leg spends a lot of time switching radio frequencies and talking on the radio.

    Yes, but let’s give the conservatives full credit for being able to find the least competent black people to fulfill the needed role of token. It would be unfair to fail to point out that Republicans are every bit as dedicated to advancing the careers of incompetent black conservatives as they are the careers of incompetent white conservatives. Michael Steele, Herman Cain, Clarence Thomas…

    Unfortunately for the GOP all of the competent persons of color are Democrats.

    Or its redneck cousin, oleometh

    Back in the days when I was a wee Willy in Wisconsin, my old man used to make the run to Illinois to get Oleo. (Oleo had coloring added to make it look like butta, the adding of colorants WI had outlawed at the time.) It had all the look and feel of a drug run, including evading police who were intent on inspecting cars returning from IL with illegally-colored vegetable resin contraband.

    Legalization of coloring additives to oleo ended the rampant cross-border smuggling.

    From Major Kong’s link above

    If the White Southerners of the nineteenth century could be resurrected to witness BRA, they would be horrified to the marrow of their bones at the disgrace that their descendants are now suffering under, and would wonder aloud why White men – especially freedom loving Anglo-Saxons – would consent to suffering the humiliation and dishonor of allowing themselves and their women and children to live under such a disgusting African despotism which has no precedent in world history.

    Ya’ think Sherlock?

    Apparently we are living in Black Run America and under African Despotism. As mush as I would like to think that this shit is parody, Jonathan Swift would headfor the fainting couch in awe.

    I think my people should round of these Anglo-Saxon freedom lovers and move them to some special reservations we (the NAACP and other Black Barbarian organizations) are building in the Mohave desert.

    Them would be some just desserts.

    If he then used the barn to run moonshine, race at a clay track and frustrate the ambitions of a local corrupt politician, it could be cool in a retro kind of way. Especially if he jumped the barn over a pond every week.

    We were on a 90-minute ground hold, so we were just sitting out there waiting. We could have shut everything down and gone into the ramp office, but then we would have had to redo everything when we got back out to the plane. Plus, sometimes they’ll end the ground hold early so it’s best to be ready to go just in case.
