Fox Facebook Page Explodes in Racist Rage at AG Nominee

President Obama nominated Loretta Lynch, a well-respected and largely apolitical U.S. Attorney from New York and the denizens of the Fox News Facebook page just happened to notice that she’s black. And then they predictably went full-on racist about it.

    Faux News – fairly unbalanced.

    Sandra Murphy Clark:

    “Does Obama know any white people that are qualified for anything except for being the first black?”

    1. This doesn’t make any sense. It’s an incoherent attempt at thinking.

    2. Obama knows lots of white people. His mother was white!!! He was raised by his white grandparents after she died. He himself is as much white as black.

    3. Lynch wouldn’t be the first black AG. The current one is also black.

    4. The vast majority of Obama’s appointments have been…white.

    Sandra Murphy Clark clearly isn’t bright or educated. That is AKA the GOP base.

    He’s the raciest president? They have the hots for him, I guess…

    Those don’t make it past the selective memory filters. These folks are basically complaining that all of Obama’s black nominations are black.

    Those were all Democrats, posting racist comments to make racists look racist.

  • dugglebogey

    They seem unconcerned with the fact that her credentials seem to indicate that she’s well qualified for the position.

  • Die Anyway

    It’s disappointing to see those comments coming from fellow Americans but doubly disappointing to see such nastiness from so many women. Of course, women have the right to be just as mean spirited as the meanest of men but I had hoped for better. Every day my father’s words ring truer and truer: People are no damn good!

    Liza Marie Carleone obama, keep on drawing that racist line, u will be out of office soon and comes a WHITE president, we will not soon forget all these antics …

    Somehow, I don’t think President Hillary, no matter how WHITE, is gonna please Liza all that much …

    M. Catharine Evans at American Imbecile Thinker:

    If confirmed, it looks as if Barack Obama’s nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, will be carrying out Eric Holder’s politics of racial vengeance. Based on her family history, social justice statements and close ties to black activists, Lynch will deploy law enforcement resources based on race and political ideology, not on the rule of law.

    .

    She goes on to cite facts that a non-bigot would regard as positive aspects of Lynch’s life and professional experience, such as early exposure to the civil rights movement in the South, prosecuting the cop who viciously attacked Abner Louima (Evans a fan of cops beating a raping people?) and comments she made during a lecture at a conference in Moscow regarding rooting out official corruption (Evans favors corruption?). Nothing, of course, suggests that she has not followed the law or would not do so in the future.

    The piece is really quite insane, and will no doubt garner many links from the average everyday bigot conservative who will cite it as proof that Lynch will disregard the law as she goes on a Mau Mau campaign to kill whitey and install a communist government.

    dugglebogey @ 7,

    No she’s not. She’s black. To quote one lackwit, ” They’re two thirds of a person”.

  • DaveL

    Raciest president? He’d be up against some pretty stiff (har!) competition, between Clinton’s sexual shenanigans with a White House intern, JFK’s reported dalliances with anything remotely female; Andrew Jackson’s marrying Rachel Robards before her divorce was finalized, etc. I think the most that could be said about Obama is that he’s carried on a relationship with a married woman since 1992.

    “keep on drawing that racist line, u will be out of office soon and comes a WHITE president, we will not soon forget all these antics …”

    Yeah, Liza Marie! Then we can FINALLY get a white person in who’ll be sure to be fair and not just appoint their OWN kind…..here’s to Jeb Bushes AA, gay, female AG!……….

    Eric Holder’s politics of racial vengeance

    WTF is this all about? As a son of the South, and whose families are no doubt at the top of the reparations list, I have yet to get my fancy letter from the AG. Or by “vengeance” do they mean “historical contextualization”?

    This sadly is a real thing with the Right these days, not just the gibberings of FB morons. Going back to the Sotomayor nomination, I saw conservatives argue with all earnestness that the only way to avoid the appearance of racial favoritism was to nominate a white male. In other words, actual favoritism benefiting the dominant group is less of a sin than the appearance of favoritism benefiting minorities.

  • felidae

    Not a word whether she is qualified or not, just that she has too many X chromosomes and too much melanin in her skin!

  • teawithbertrand

    I’ve long thought how painfully ironic it is that the election of the nation’s first black president has done more to prove that racism is alive and well in this country than almost anything else in recent memory.

  • Nemo

    Sad to see those Italian and Irish names there, of people who seem to have forgotten that their own ethnicities were only recently promoted to “white”.

  • dan4

    Got to love how all of these idiots jabber about “racism” and yet don’t take any issue at all with the commenters who actually use racist slurs.

    Oh wait, no. I don’t.

    #20 teawithbertrand – That’s been one of the most disappointing things about modern ‘Merka, you’re right. It’s both appalling and telling that many of those making those nasty comments apparently have no trouble at all letting pictures of themselves sit right alongside their ignorant, hateful crap. No shame at all. To me, that part is at least as bad as what they’er saying–the fact that it’s perfectly acceptable to be known as a racist. Regressive ‘Merka shows its ugly face again.

  • Anri

    One could make the point that these racist comments on Fox forums are an example of getting fleas from lying down with dogs.

    I personally suspect it’s a case of lying down with dogs… because you’re a dog.

    (If that metaphor makes any sense.)

  • dingojack

    Anri – that’s a little unfair — on dogs (and fleas). Do either deserve to be lumped in with Faux News viewers?

    dingojack@30, The problem is finding something as disconnected from reality, reason, and responsibility as fauxoids. The obvious candidates all have some redeeming feature, even if it is nothing more than aren’t in USAlienstan (which is considerably unfair to the whichever part of the Universe they do infest).

    Don’t be mean to dogs.

    Dogs are quite sensible about a lot of things. One thing, I’ve noticed, is that a Chihuahua and a Great Dane will play together, in spite of their extreme size/appearance difference. I’ve never seen a sign of “breedism” between dogs, though I’ve noticed that the males do tend to wag their tails a lot at the females – though the females are comfortable growling or nipping at them, and don’t wear burqas. Dogs appreciate naps. Dogs, in other words, are pretty cool.

  • teawithbertrand

    @28 dhall

    Remember the cries of “Hooray! Racism is over!” after the 2008 election? The case is quite the opposite as it turns out. Anyone who claims that the unprecedented rancor and hatred this president has faced have nothing to do with race is either lying or hopelessly naive.

  • teawithbertrand

    Having said that, the most charitable thing I can say about our friends on the Fox News Facebook page is that they just don’t know any better. I think it was Jon Stewart who observed that we’ve done a great job in this country teaching everyone that racism is bad, but a terrible job of teaching what racism is. I’d bet cash money that if you asked any one of these idiots, “Are you a racist?” they would all deny it vehemently. And bear in mind, anytime you hear someone say “I’m not a racist, but…” you are about to hear something outrageously bigoted.

    And just think of the complete ignorance and lack of self-awareness one must live with to post something like “That n*gger is a racist for appointing that other n*gger,” Truly astounding.

    I remember when Bill Clinton was running for President and he made a campaign promise to appoint the first woman Attorney General. That proved to be a mistake, for the Republicans that contolled the Senate rejected not one, but TWO of his first woman nominees because they were married and mothers, forcing Clinton in the end to appoint Janet Reno, who was single, and childless. The sexism and arrogance smelled like shyt even back then.

    Also, didn’t President Bush Sr. say he was against racial quotas, then turn around and after Thurgood Marshall, the first black man to sit on the Supreme Court retired appoint…..another black man, the most conservative one he could possibly find?! Sure, replace a genuine civil rights activist with a sell out and hypocrite!
