Kobach Revives the ‘Obama phone’ bullshit

Kris Kobach, the far-right, vote-suppressing secretary of state of Kansas, on the same show on which he pondered the idea that Latinos would engage in ethnic cleansing of whites once they’re in the majority, also revived that idiotic Obama phone bullshit. Because apparently he didn’t think he was already being quite racist enough.

Kobach made the remarks on his Sunday radio program on Kansas City’s KCMO after taking a call from a listener who told him he had taken a bike to the polls because his truck was in the shop.

His voice dripping with sarcasm, Kobach told the listener: “Thank you so much for taking your rickety bike to vote, because I believe that your voice should be heard because you cared enough to vote. But President Obama thinks that the people who were sitting in front of the TV all day talking on their Obama Phones who didn’t vote, he speaks for those people. And I’m not saying any particular people, but I’m just saying someone who didn’t vote has an equal voice than you who actually got on your bike because you didn’t have a motor vehicle to get to the polls.”

The Lifeline program started under Reagan, you lying fuckhead.

    I have an Obamaphone. It’s weird. No matter what number I dial, he answers.

    Because apparently he didn’t think he was already being quite racist enough.

    Can a teabagger ever be racist enough?

  • nemistenem

    He Ed, you seem to be even less accomodating and more aptly descriptive of these R Wing morons, or is that just my imagination?

  • He Who Shall Not Be Blamed

    Hey Modus – Did you happen to pick that phone up at a Moscow garage sale in the early nineties? At a big, red, building?

    I hear they might want that back – if they can get anyone there that speaks sane, that is.

    Reagan was being mind-controlled by Obama – hey, time travel isn’t his only technology.

  • tubi

    Obamaphones are just the beginning. Wait until he releases the Obamarang and the Obamamobile.

    “Quick, Biden, to the Obamacave!”

    And I’m not saying any particular people, but I’m just saying someone who didn’t vote has an equal voice than you who actually got on your bike because you didn’t have a motor vehicle to get to the polls.”

    So someone who stays home and doesn’t vote has as much of a voice as someone who rides a bike to their polling place. This is because Obama is still in power after the last time more someones did go out and vote for him rather than stay at home speaking on their Obamaphone. What I’m hearing is whinging that the President is still in power. They are still sore fucking losers after all this time! I don’t think that will ever change.

    But let’s go back to the whole “you should have more of a voice because you rode your rickety bike” bullshit. What if I swim across the Potomac in November to vote? May I have 2 votes then? And if I do it without a wet-suit, might I have 3 votes? After all, if its about deserving voices being heard, and your mode of transportation is the fulcrum, then god damn it I won’t mind risking hypothermia and drowning just to see Kobach and his ilk sent packing.
