With nothing better to do and a desperate need to find something — anything — with which to disparage the Obama family, the Tea Party has not only turned on the children, but their t-shirts, as well.
When a photo surfaced that appears to show Malia Obama wearing a Pro-Era t-shirt, right-wingers could not help themselves. After all, a teenager was listening to rap music; This was certainly a big deal!
The Gateway Pundit, the same rag that pushed the lie that Michael Brown fractured Officer Darren Wilson’s eye socket, did some digging and found some lyrics that, yes, can be considered objectionable. The ever-reliable repository of filth that is the Tea Party News Network, however, took things to a whole new level as it pretended that listening to rap music somehow helps prove Malia’s father is anti-police…and “anti-white”:
Barack Obama has been accused of lighting the fire under the tumultuous, anti-cop sentiment that is raging across the country. After all, he has had a history of attacking police officers in words. Back in July 2009, Obama said Cambridge police acted stupidly in the incident involving his friend Henry Louis Gates, before he knew any of the facts. Most recently, Obama made controversial statements faulting the Ferguson Police Department in the death of Michael Brown and pushing the debunked narrative of Brown’s unarmed innocence.
Obama, who made his living as a rabble rousing community organizer prior to becoming president, attended a black liberation theology church for over 20 years in which racist, anti-white, and anti-America sentiment was preached by Jeremiah Wright, who Obama described as being like his uncle.
Recently, a picture from Instagram of the oldest Obama daughter, Malia, was leaked. The controversy in this picture is the shirt that Malia Obama is wearing.
“How do you feel about the First Daughter wearing a shirt promoting an anti-white, anti-police group?” asked Jennifer Burke of TPNN.
The lyrics Burke posted included exactly one line that can be construed as anti-police — a statement against racist “stop and frisk” policies that included the words “slaughtering pigs” — but, oddly, there was nothing to support her “anti-white” claim.
” Many will find it disconcerting that such music is being played in the White House,” Burke predicted, and she was right. The rabid Tea Party crowd leaped on the opportunity to engage in what amounts to a good, old-fashioned e-lynching of the Obama family:
Of course, when we look at the Tea Party’s chosen role model, Ted Nugent, we see true depravity, as was demonstrated in his song, “Jailbait”:
Well I donґt care if you’re just thirteen
You look too good to be true
I just know that youґre probably clean
Thereґs one lil’ thing I got do to you
Jailbait you look so good to me[…]
Jailbait won’t you set me free
Jailbait you look fine fine fine
I know I’ve got to have you in a matter of time
Honey you you you look so nice
She’s young she’s tender
Won’t you please surrender
She’s so fine she’s mine
All the time, all mine mine
Itґs all right baby
Itґs quite all right I asked your mama
Wait a minute officer
Donґt put those handcuffs on me
Put them on her and I’ll share her with you
Shortly before writing “Jailbait,” at the age of 30, Nugent took legal guardianship of a 17-year-old girl so he could have sex with her. In addition, Nugent was accused of raping Courtney Love when she was 12 years old, and he 28.
The party of “family values” is bashing the Obamas over rap lyrics Malia may or may not enjoy, yet overwhelmingly accepts a pants-pooping pedophile who, as HuffPo’s Larry Womack noted, “wrote, recorded and released a semi-autobiographical pedophile joke. And then campaigned with Rick Perry.”
It all comes down to whether or not one considers child molestation a “big deal,” it seems, in comparison to a single line regarding killing police officers.
