Racist Eric Bolling Makes Ayn Rand Cry

Speaking of hating the black president. Fox News bigot Eric Bolling:

The president is "chugging 40s" when he should be doing something about the tornadoes, eh?

What do they want him to do? Should he be declaring war and torturing the tornadoes? Bolling's obvious racism aside, I thought far-right conservatives hated government intrusion and interference. I thought they especially hated this "40 chugging" president interfering and intruding.

The far-right -- the Ayn Rand worshipping small-government far-right -- ought to be shouting at the CEOs of Exxon-Mobil and, I don't know, Walmart to be addressing the tornado disasters. The free market. Private enterprise solutions to the disaster.

But why on Earth would they want the president and his big government gangstas dealing with the tornadoes? Lawrence O'Donnell and Bill Maher provide some answers:

    New Rule: The next wingnutbagger who complains about high gas prices being Obama’s fault, must explain to all the other wingnutbaggers why he is in favor of the POTUS and/or the federal government forcing private corporations to do things that will cause them to make less money.

    More info on the race-baiting aspect of the term “chugging 40s”

    40′s” is a slang name for 40oz malt liquor bottles. But Obama drank from a pint glass (not a bottle) of beer that doesn’t come in 40oz bottles. Why did Bolling say Obama was “chugging 40′s”? As even some of Bolling’s Facebook commenter note, it’s an eyebrow-raising choice of words, given the beverage’s long-time association with African American stereotypes.

    Throughout the late 80s and 90s, 40 oz malt liquor was rolled out with “aggressive marketing campaigns aimed at minority drinkers,” which often portrayed black actors and rappers in stereotypical or exploitative fashions. There is a fairly large body of academic literature exploring the relationship between malt liquor and African Americans, and 40 oz stereotypes were even mocked in the 2009 parody of “blacksploitation” films, “Black Dynamite.”

    Hip hop culture has appropriated malt liquor, with numerous songs with “40 oz” in the title. “Rap artists have been popular images in malt liquor advertising and ‘gangsta’ rap performers portray malt liquor as a sign of masculinity,” a 2005 study of malt liquor consumption noted. But more socially conscious rappers have condemned malt liquor’s association with mainstream hip hop culture, with Public Enemy’s Chuck D writing an entire song — “One Million Bottlebags” — on the topic.

    Last month, Bolling infamously devoted an entire segment to questioning the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate, after he had released the long form version, along with birther Islamophobe Pam Geller. (HT: LGF)</blockquote

    One idea I’ve been harping on is illustrating the Aynian “freemarket” as a rainbow shitting unicorn that magically brings wealth to the hardworking producers, and kills the undeserving lazy.

    The T-shirt possibilities, and fertile ground in cartoons in undeniable.
