A Steaming Pile of Cracker Rap

Shorter Crackacon Rappers Chowder and Lush, Breitbart’s Island of Misfit Boys
MR. AMERICA!! (By Powdered Zombies)*

    • Did you know that white guys can say “niggers” if they are wearing knickers? ‘Cuz the two words sound just alike, which is just fucking hilarious, if you ask me. Sometimes I totally crack myself up.

      The whole “rap” was written around the HIALRRIOUS and TRANSGRESSIVE observation that “knickers” sounds like…you know (giggle, snort, fart, tee hee, etc.). If he dresses up like a bartender next time he can spin off of “jigger” I guess. It’s kind of the long away around, but it’s art. What must it be like to be stuck on untarded 4th grader forever?

      The sung chorus sounds like Nu Metal, intolerable, and the rapping is rhythmically unimaginative and predictable. The second guy is the better rapper, managing a credible syncopated sing-song phrase at one point, and working in a reference to George Washington’s wooden teeth (“a grill made of wood”). This is like a bargain-basement The Lonely Island (“Dick in a Box”) track with conservative themes.

      In comments, we learn that Alan Grayson is corrupt and evil-looking.

      If Sullivan isn’t a Democrat or liberal or progressive, then why should Democrats, liberals or progressives care about what he says? He’s obviously not trying to help them.

      And on the same note, why write this to conservatives? They believe this nonsense in one way, shape or form. Why not write a story about “How do Republicans keep their sanity after getting trounced in the 2012 election?” Wouldn’t that article be more constructive?

      One More Thing: didn’t conservatives used to label Animal Farm as communist propaganda?

I guess they long for the days when a perfectly good, upper-class whiteboy could call black people niggers, could slip a roofie in some freshman’s beer and butt rape her with impunity and get away with it ‘cos daddy can afford good lawyers, then some day grow up and embezzle business partners and clients while the government chases him for unpaid child support.

Menu: roast turkey, oyster/pancetta cornbread stuffing, house cured ham with a Jamaican glaze, Thai green papaya salad, cold sesame noodles, raita, slaw, mango chutney (for the ham), lots of fresh baguettes with various spreads and cheeses. Now I’m making turkey stock and rendering ham fat, got everything else cleaned up.

      Wow, I actually made it all of the way through that trainwreck. The thing that kills me about the conservative mentality, particularly as often expressed by their younger male co-hort, is their need to steal and co-opt the symbols of oppression to burnish their martyrdom and unfounded feeling of victimhood.

      Privileged white dudes yammering on about oppression through a Bullhorn while standing on the necks and backs of actual victims of oppression or worse.*

      *GWB standing on top of the remains of the WTC with bullhorn is but one egregious example.

      The other notable thing about the video is the sense I got that those two dudes really do think they are the coolest, most cutting edge, guys on PlanetSmug™

      The aforementioned Buffalo ass-scratching reminded me more of a mocker of the badonkadonk bootie shake seen often in Rap Videos.

      The thing that kills me about the conservative mentality, particularly as often expressed by their younger male co-hort, is their need to steal and co-opt the symbols of oppression to burnish their martyrdom and unfounded feeling of victimhood.

      If there’s any consolation, it’s that such appropration clearly demonstrates that they have lost the culture war and that, while they’d never admit it, they know it. Youth culture has been a riff on Black culture ever since the Jazz Age, and there’s nothing that they can do to change that fact.

      I honestly think that they’re losing their minds because they can see their party dying before their very eyes. If their 2012 presidential campaign is predicated on limiting access to contraceptives, it’ll spell the end of the Gormless Old Patriarchs, no mere 40 years in the wilderness.

      Jim’s (February 11, 2012 at 21:10) “Who Castrated Ann Coulter?” link begin by calling her smart and courageous:

      “In 2008, for example, [Coulter] declared that she would not merely vote for, but actively campaign for Hillary Clinton if the Republican Party were foolish enough to nominate John McCain for President.”

      And of course conservative talk of this declaration was all over the internet. But McCain was nominated on March 4, then Obama on August 28, and Coulter did not campaign for Hillary in the interim. After buzzing about her bold declaration, nobody on the right (especially not Coulter) wanted to dwell on her failure to follow through.

      Neither does this David Catron fellow at the American Spectator. He wants to cite her courage vis-a-vis the above bullshit, the better to chide her for supporting Romney … something she also did in 2008 (per Wikipedia) prior to McCain’s nomination. David Catron doesn’t mention that, either. Instead, he hammers away at the pretense that smart, courageous Coulter has just recently changed:

      “Once immutable where her core convictions were concerned, she has executed a vertigo-inducing volte-face”
      “It first became apparent that something awful had happened to Coulter last November”
      “Coulter has been somehow altered. Her inexplicable support for Romney”

      Et cetera. Of course she’s totally full of shit, as is this nonentity David Catron. All that’s hardly worth underscoring. But for me, the sequence of events nicely encapsulates the conservative movement.

      I think some people hear rap and mistakenly conclude that it’s like speech, but more regular, having less rhythmic, dynamic and tonal variation.

      Really, it’s metered and/or in simultaneous dialogue with a metered accompaniment. Only the pulse is more regular, or present, than in speech; and as in all music, the pulse need not be stated all the time.

      The above is common-sensical, but I think it helps explain why bad rapping can be less interesting, less musical even, than listening to someone speak. Bad rapping sacrifices the varied musicality of speech in a clumsy quest for meter. It is insulting and maddening even in an unknown tongue.

      That’s a fair observation, and I’d say probable, but I also must add that I feel a bit sorry for the party in question. I mean, the Republican Party has been infected with this brain parasite for quite some time, tottering about zombie-like, fighting to retain its humanity while its core is eaten alive from the inside out.

      Now that it is finally crumbling to a stinking heap in the hallway, I feel some relief, but mostly pity and a little bit of fear that the parasite will seek a new, stronger host.

      The key word here seems to be “coupled.” There’s one CPAC booth, see, but two partnerships, and two partners total.

      Hey Fenwick, is this what you were part of in Germany?

      Hiya, Wiley! Fortunately the idiotic 1950′s nukes-as-air-defense-weapons idea was long gone when I joined in 1973.

      My focus was on enemy ground forces. I knew next-to-nothing about ICBMs (other than what I learned open-source); our high-priority targets included enemy road-mobile nuclear missile units that employed Transporter-Erector-Launchers (TELs). [Same thing with SAMs and AD artillery, Major.] Such nuke and AD units constituted only a tiny fraction of Group of Soviet Forces Germany (the twenty Red Army divisions stationed in East Germany). The real meat-and-potatoes work was against ground combat formations, mainly armor and mech.

      There were two types of mobile SSMs, the now well-known SCUD and the FROG. In Soviet organization, the longer-range SCUD units were controlled by Army-level HQs; the FROGs were organic to Divisions.

      By today’s standards, both SSMs had limited ranges and were very inaccurate. (Check out the Circular Error Probable numbers, Wiley!) Export (and design-copy) SCUDs and FROGs are still in weapons inventories throughout the world. Iranian and North Korean missiles are largely based on the SCUD; Gaddafi had some FROGs in the 2011 Libyan civil war.

      Sometime I really should write more comprehensively about my MOS training and the meat-and-potatoes of my work. Maybe I might write a Fenwick Story about Military Liason Missions and Bumper Numbers. Or Cold War tactical nuclear weapons doctine. (US and Soviets had different doctrines; both sides trained for a nuclear battlefield.

      Ooo! Ooo! I know!: [apologies to Kubrick]….

      ((Btw, I’m curious: Are there any Sadlies with a Navy or Marine background? We’ve got AF and Army vets. Needs moar Sea and Sand folks!))

      Wiley: Also I once asked if you were AF. Were you? What was your MOS? I’d very much like to learn more about your training and duties. [But don't want to open anything painful for you, Wiley. You've had far too much pain from it already. It's just the old Fenwick Question Machine....]

      Question for Fenwick, since I didn’t know you knew missiles: I have heard the Iranians have Sunburn missiles that could seriously fuck our carriers up – I also think if we fuck with them they will close the Straits of Hormuz and knock out the Saudi oil ports – bad fucking news for the world economy. What do you think?

      Ibn Thundra! Nicetaseeya! Howyadoin?

      I would love to see them, Pup. My absolute favorite large-bird species…and these are b-i-g birds, indeed. So graceful and majestic in take-off and landing…and especially flight, with the folded-back neck. In feeding, such wonderful combinations of patience, stealth, and lightning strike.

      I spent one summer on the Chesapeake Bay. I’m a night person anyway, so I liked to go out and sit quietly and watch them fish nocturnally. Eventually the herons accepted my presence, and fished without concern as close as 10 feet. I totally fell in love with them.

      Also enjoyed the bats nailing insects drawn to the streetlights; I could see the bats clearly and observe their flight for several seconds. Also there were mockingbirds going all through the night. God, I love critters.

      Hiya S. cerev! I don’t know much of anything about modern missiles, except what I’ve gleaned from reading. I’m particularly out of my depth in air and naval missile environments. Also, much of modern missile warfare is EW and ECM in addition to the missiles themselves. I don’t have nearly the technical understanding of missiles that Wiley and the Major have.

      About your questions: I believe it would be a mistake to actually send carriers into the Gulf, or operate them anywhere near the Strait. They are definitely more vulnerable (and more provocative) in such waters.
      Keep them in Indian Ocean.

      I believe that an Iranian strike on Saudi oil facilities would almost certainly lead to a counterstrike on Iranian oil facilities. In my estimation, the oil production of both countries would be crippled … and deal a savage one-two punch to the world economy. (Dunno, of course; I’m not an economist, either.)

      OT, but Slaggie Gallagher was on UP with Chris Hayes on Saturday and seemed (to me) to be advocating for forced marriage for men (gay or straight) so that women wouldn’t have to raise children on their own. It was very, very surreal.

      Maggie apparently was impregnated by her boyfriend during her sophmore year at college, and rather than marry her, he dumped her, which has obviously scarred her for life.

      It occurs to me that should I complete the time machine, one of my missions is to go back to that time, find the dud in question and tell him “Don’t hit that, unless you wear two condoms and a full body latex suit” If that wasn’t persuasive enough a knee to the groin followed with a drop kick to same before he hit the ground might be a sufficient deterent.

      So i did a gizoogle search on Gallagher which led to the wikipedia and this gem:

      Her parents were initially active in their local Catholic parish, but drifted over time. Her mother left the Church when she was eight, but remained interested in spirituality. Maggie Gallagher herself moved toward an atheism influenced by Ayn Rand and, to a lesser extent, Robert A. Heinlein. In her 20s she reverted to Catholicism because her experience as a single mother made her consider the importance of fathers and the linkage of sex to procreation.[4]

      Definitly a strong vibe of whatsinitforme going on with a healthy dollop of punish the sluts who got away with the sexytime.

      Anywoo the picture at the wiki was not recognisable so I did the google image search which led to a most disturbing realization:

      Related searches: maggie gyllenhaal.

      I do feel sorry for those that were looking for sexytime images who managed to type in the wrong name.

      I’ll jsut say that the energies required to be a hateful busybody and terminal scold definitely have a way of snuffing out inner and outer beauty.

      Come again? (no pun intended…well, perhaps a bit of one) Aside from the blatant ignorance of not knowing the “linkage of sex to procreation” until she was already knocked up in her 20s, perhaps a little education in the area of contraception might have helped her avoid a lifetime of religious oppression.

      But it is the logical non sequitur that gets me–Did the Church provide her with a husband, then? Is that why she “reverted”? Is this an admission that the attraction of globally-organized, patronizing, wealthy religion has nothing to do with spirituality or philosophy but everything to do with the Power to force others to do what you want them to do (for Gallager and about a billion others)?

      Anyway, he swooped, and scraped over my head. I figured he just got a bad reflection off the ol’ scalp, so I shifted a little.

      You turned in the paper assignment for your political science class. I am not your political science professor and my name is not Dr. Johnson. The mistake was understandable as you are only a senior.

      Anyone know where we can get a zombie that we don’t have to return in good condition?

      Is there such a thing as a zombie in good condition? Isn’t being in bad condition sort of the sine qua non of zombiehood?

      Ravenholm. Except we don’t go there anymore.

      T-38 engines don’t ingest bats very well.

      I’m sure there is a well known amount of biomass that a turbine of a given size will swallow. A single bat = fine pink mist. A solid column of Mexican free-tails issuing from their roost could be trouble. There’s probably a seagull, starling or Canada goose standard.

      Ravenholm.

      I spent about ten nights working my way through there using only the gravity gun throwing saw blades and concrete blocks. Then I went back and did it guns blazing and found myself much more emotionally fulfilled.

      Mostly bats are incredibly weak and gentle

      Batman is NOT weak.

      The J85 engines on the T-38 were originally designed for an air-launched decoy. They weren’t built to the standards that a commercial jet engine requires. A small bird could indeed cause one to compressor-stall.
