The Daily Asshole

Gotcha! You thought I was referring to him, didn’t you? (Warning: if you click on the previous link, your computer might grow horns, a tail, cloven hooves and a forked tongue & kill Max Von Sydow.)

Well, no. I was referring to one of Mr. Romney’s GOP brethren, Arkansas State Rep. Jon Hubbard (R-Jonesboro).

(courtesy Arkansas Statehouse)

Somehow in his lifetime, Rep. Hubbard honed his hate, got scared & educated and wrote a book using the blood of non-Christians.

Mr. Hubbard believes that slavery was a good thing for African Americans, and that African Americans have ruined public education for us white folks because of their supposed “lack of discipline and ambition.”

That’s it, you say?

C’mon Jules, he’s just spewing the same shit some of his fellow politicians from both parties have been saying aloud for the, oh, last few decades. Tell me something I don’t already know.

Ok, well, this isn’t in the book but, Mr. Hubbard is all for people showing birth certificates when they show up in hospitals for non-emergency care to make sure them damn illegals don’t use up any medicine that’s supposed to go to ‘muricans. He’s also allll about defending Christianity in America — whatever the hell that means. Fucking over people of color is a Christian value, see. That’s what I gleaned from his proclamation. Lord help those who could benefit from the committees he sits on.

This particular tome is a doozy too — it’s chock-full of fun statements like:

“… the institution of slavery that the black race has long believed to be an abomination upon its people may actually have been a blessing in disguise. The blacks who could endure those conditions and circumstances would someday be rewarded with citizenship in the greatest nation ever established upon the face of the Earth.” (Pgs 183-89)

And, since he’s got his knickers in a twist about immigrants, he wrote this:

… the immigration issue, both legal and illegal … will lead to planned wars or extermination. Although now this seems to be barbaric and uncivilized, it will at some point become as necessary as eating and breathing.” (Pg 9)

Hmm … this sounds familiar. Mighty familiar. Where oh where have I seen this before? <scrunches forehead, frowns and rubs chin with thumb and forefinger–my sarcastic thinking pose>

Thanks a lot, Arkansas. I hope this choad doesn’t run for national office.

  1. “Lack of discipline and ambition.” Well, you learn something every day. I always thought it was the watermelon.

    While it’s not surprising that such show-stopping stupidity and bigotry co-exist in one dull fellow, it’s distressing that the critter can impress enough others to win their trust and vote. Then they pay him for the honor. Mind boggling.

  2. See, I knew you weren’t referring to Romney when you titled the post “Daily Asshole”. Romney is more of “Asshole of the Year”, thus leaving plenty of room for (only slightly) lower levels of …. asshole-ness? Asshole-inity? Whatever…..
    There’s a “”?!? Lord, do I actually dare GO there? I mean, I did used to re-enact as a WW2 German soldier, but I’m not certain I have the intestinal fortitude for that!

      • Actually, I have to tip my feldmutz (hat) to They sound a lot like what we were trying to do as German WW2 re-enactors. Yes, we all believed Hitler was evil, that what the Nazis did during WW2 was bad, and that the war was started for evil reasons. BUT – and like mine, it’s a big one – the German military showed some outstanding qualities, both in weapons and in soldiers’ behaviour, that is definitely worth studying. People are shocked to learn that the French had better tanks than Germany in 1940 – the Germans simply co-ordinated things better. The German airplane manufacturers gave us jet aircraft, rocket aircraft, helicopters, and the first truly “smart bomb”, a guided glide bomb that sank an Italian battleship with just one hit. They played with spaced armour, sloped armour (Both found on modern tanks), subs that could run underwater for days and make BETTER speed submerged than surfaced, and gave us the grandfather of the assault weapon, the Sturmgewehr 44, which inspired the Kalashnikov AK-47. Our infantrymen, on average, had almost 100 people behind in the supply chain, the Germans had only a dozen early war, and only 1 or 2 late war. They fought harder, further, faster, and longer with less than any other army, PERIOD. Hate Nazism, by all means – I sure do. But you have to admire the guys (and women) who fought for their country – even if doing so was a misguided, politically-driven action.
        (Puts away soapbox.) We now return you to your regularly scheduled blog, already in progress. 😀

      • I think I’ve read the Stalingrad book. To be honest (though it sounds like I’m bragging), I’ve read so many WW2 books I’ve lost track. Heck,half my library is still in storage from our move down here – TEN years ago! Any particular point, or just wondering if I’d seen them? One of the most memorable books I’ve read was the autobiography of Guy Sajer, a German soldier who made it all the way through WW2, from Poland in 1939 to the battles around Berlin. He gives some great insight into the mindset of the German soldier at numerous points throughout the war.

Push it out, shove it out, waaaaay out...
