This was called the "Fight of The Century," and it took place on July 4, 1910. Guess what? Jeffries got his ass kicked. Fucking shithead. Johnson held it for another five years, hahahaha. More like the Great White DOPE, amirite?
"The Great White Hope" became an infamous racial phrase, used whenever a black person managed to climb over white persecution and become successful.
Fast forward to August 19, 2009, a couple weeks ago. The inherent racism behind all the slobbering, blubbering Obama-fearing is finally starting to come out. Well, it's been out, but the republicans holding office have just been hiding it real well until now. Republican Representative Lynn Jenkins feels that "Republicans are struggling right now to find the Great White Hope." Whoops?
It's curious, when she was naming off "great young republican minds", she neglected to mention Bobby Jindall -- a great young republican mind who has a bright future. Bobby Jindall is not white.
Jenkins, unsurprisingly, never apologized - "I was explaining that there are some bright lights in the House, and I was unaware of any negative connotation. If I offended somebody, obviously I apologize."
Ah! IF she offended anyone, THEN she apologizes! That's very sincere, Mrs. Jenkins! It's obvious you know what you did, thank you!
"Though Jenkins claimed that she was unaware of the racial history of the phrase, she had voted for a resolution in July 2009, only one month earlier, that had text which explained the history of the phrase. Jenkins responded by saying she had voted for the resolution without reading it first."Nice!
But this is old news. This fucking cunt has made some new news for herself. Elizabeth Smith came to a town hall discussion being held by Jenkins to ask about health care. Smith is a 27-year-old working single mother. Her 2 1/2-year-old son has not been to a doctor in 21 months, with the exception of emergency room visits, because her son is not covered under any insurance. Jenkins' disgusting response shows more than anything the complete detachment republicans have from the people they're supposed to represent.
"Go be a grown up."
Really. She told this struggling mother who cannot afford medical care for her son to "be a grown up." This is the hurdle republicans can't seem to overcome. You see, by telling Smith that she needs to "be a grown up," Jenkins confirmed that she completely lacks a sense of empathy. This isn't fucking about Elizabeth Smith. It's about her son.
"I think we can agree we need reforms, again it’s just how we gonna do it. I believe people should be given the opportunity to take care of themselves with an advancebale tax credit to go be a grown-up and go buy the insurance."Oh, yes. There's video.
It truly staggers the mind, trying to figure out why republicans have any support at all. "Problem? Tough shit. Vote for me."
Jesus, just look at her. Have fun dying miserably confused about why you missed out on all the good things in life, you disgusting racist pile of shit.
On a higher note, I discovered yesterday that my great grandfather was in the KKK. Kill me.
