  1. I must also be anti-Texan since I am against Obama polices for the same reason I was against Bush’s polices. I am against their wars, their bailouts, their debts, their take over of the health industry, their foreign aid, their trade policy, their immigration policy, etc etc.

    1. I must also be anti-Texan

      Bush was a damned yankee carpetbagger. No real Texan would have a granddaddy named “Prescott”.

      -jcr

      1. I wonder if he talked like a redneck while he was at the Massachusetts prep school. Or at home for Thanksgiving dinner with his parents.

        1. He probably liked the affectation of it.

      2. No real Texan can spell “Prescott”

        1. I’m not a Texan. 😉

          -jcr

        2. Maybe not, but they can cut and paste it with the best of them 😉

  2. png > bmp for web browsing

  3. This flowchart is racist.

  4. I made it all the wat to “Are you white” before I fell out.

    1. See how much more complex and nuanced race relations are in Obama’s America. Up until now, that was the first question.

  5. Haha. I actually laughed almost out loud at this.

  6. But did anyone else get excited when you heard somebody called Obama a liar during his speech, but then got down when you realized he was from South Carolina?

    1. Ho ho! What a delightfully ironic display of the basic principal of racism. Well done, sir.

    2. That was what was most funny about that SNL skit. That and the fact that the only thing Joe Wilson is really known for, besides the outburst, is something to do with support for the Confederate flag.

  7. I support the president. In fact, if I ever meet him, I’m gonna give him a pat on the back and a loud “atta-boy!”

  8. Are you sure you guys aren’t Republicans?

    Are you sure this wasn’t posted by Matt Welch?

    1. Are you sure you are not a Communist?

      Are you sure your name is not Josef Che Sunbeam Mao?

    2. Are you sure you’re not white?
      Are you sure you read the question correctly?

    3. Are you sure you’re not an idiot?

      Because if you say you’re not, I don’t believe you.

    4. ONNTA=Racially enlightened, no?

    5. Sounds like someone needs to be Polanski’d.

  9. Where is the page? How do you get to stuff that is older than, say, 3 hours ago?

  10. I don’t understand these crazy flashing screens, “reply to this” links frighten me, I’m just a caveman, but what I do know is having to go out of HnR to see the next post is just retarded.

    1. You don’t have to leave the post. The links have been restored. Look right above the orange bar.

      1. Mr. Squirrel,

        It sure would be nice if the first page contained, at the least, all of today’s posts .

      2. Where is the rest of the blog? You’ve been a busy squirrel today, haven’t you?

  11. “Remember me” checkboxes are racist.

    1. Seriously. I have to uncheck each time because I is scared of the cookie monster.

  12. Remember name, email, and website on this computer for 30 days?

    I have a feeling our cycles are all gonna synch now.

    1. Threadwinner. Right there.

  13. Threaded comments are racist.

    1. Don’t be ridiculous! Threaded comments aren’t racist.

      They’re fascist.

      1. Fucking libertarian facists. I hate them even more than those communist Nazis.

        1. It’s fucking libertarian RACIST fascists. Get it right!

          1. and it’s fucking Communits RACIALLY PROGRESSIVE Nazis. Get it right!

            1. But what about Illinois Nazis? I hate Illinois Nazis.

              1. Really hate Illinois Nazis and their damned Nazi Olympics.

  14. Checking out my awesome comments on a previous thread is also racist.

    https://reason.com/blog/2009/10…..nt_1405244

    1. Using search feature = racist.

  15. Why are you assuming racists are anti-Obama? I’d think they’d favor what he’s doing for the reputation of racism.

  16. …but then got down when you realized he was from South Carolina?

    “Yo, I got a solution – you’re a dick! South Carolina, represent!”

    1. Sad, pathetic Southern states, you shall never match the Almighty Texas!

      1. Maybe not, but Georgia is so awesome, we only need to say it once!

        OK…not really, but I figured “what the hell”

    2. Sad, pathetic Southern states, you shall never match the Almighty Texas!

  17. You know, I might be crazy, but it looks to me like you can even reply to older comments, such as this crystal ball prediction by yours truly.

  18. Reminds me of that Ayn Rand flowchart they had up a few months ago.

  19. This flowchart is clearly wrong. I got caught in an infinite loop, but I hate Asians, so I know I’m racist.

  20. Sage,

    I went back to that thread and told Stevo that a wise Latina would be appointed to the SCOTUS.

    1. You should have also told him he would become a RACIST.

  21. Reminds me of that Ayn Rand flowchart they had up a few months ago.

    They charted her flow? Which week of the month was it?

      1. No, I’m not following that link. Never, never, never. 🙂

        1. How do you ever hope to achieve perfection if you don’t follow Ayn Rand’s flow?

  22. It’s very simple. If you think Obama is ineffectual, a tool of corporate elite interests, a weak leader, or a misguided liberal, or if Obama just plains annoys the hell out of you, you are not a racist. If, on the other hand, you sincerely believe Obama is a “Marxist”, a “radical leftist” or “hates America” then chances are you are either a racist or just a moron. Reason’s defensiveness on this issue makes me wonder about the editors and people who post here.

    1. Perhaps you should read Reason’s voluminous citations of people in the MSM and lefty blogosphere who are shouting racism whenever a non-leftist disagrees with Obama. Sometimes the defensive really are under attack.

  23. a tool of corporate elite interests,

    Fucking corporations, all up in their corporate buildings, acting all corporationy.

    1. You know, they make money.

      1. They make money? The evil racist bastards!

        1. I’ll bet they follow Ayn Rand’s flow.

  24. If … you sincerely believe Obama is … a “radical leftist” … then chances are you are either a racist or just a moron.

    Citation needed.

  25. The Rand chart is funnier. The racist chart should ask whether you are white before asking if you are Republican and if you are from the south.

  26. Are You an Anti-Obama Racist?

    As opposed to a pro-Obama racist?

  27. But… but… Glenn Beck said Obama is racist, so I’m just racist against racists…

    It’s like meta-racist, you wouldn’t understand.

  28. Conservative cuteness trumps racism. Fuck!

  29. Shut the fuck up, Lefiti.

  30. I wish some NFL team would change their name to the Caucasians. Then I could be the mascot. Call me mighty whitey. Then Warty could buff my ass so bright, you’d have to wear sunglasses to take in awesomness of my whiteness.

  31. Ron Paul’s newsletters. I rest my case.

  32. For Pro-Obama racists, see http://www.esquire.com/the-sid…..ama-061308

    some quotes: “White people are faced with either a negro or a total nutter who happens to have a pale face. Personally I’d prefer the negro. National Socialists are not mindless haters. Here, I see a white man, who is almost dead, who declares he wants to fight endless wars around the globe to make the world safe for Judeo-capitalist exploitation, who supports the invasion of America by illegals–basically a continuation of the last eight years of Emperor Bush. Then, we have a black man, who loves his own kind, belongs to a Black-Nationalist religion, is married to a black women–when usually negroes who have ‘made it’ immediately land a white spouse as a kind of prize–that’s the kind of negro that I can respect. Any time that a prominent person embraces their racial heritage in a positive manner, it’s good for all racially minded folks. Besides, America cares nothing for the interests of the white American worker, while having a love affair with just about every non-white on planet Earth. It’d be poetic justice to have a non-white as titular chief over this decaying modern Sodom and Gomorrah.”

    1. Thanks for that link. Those guys get points for having, um “fairly original” beliefs, but all those points deducted for being borderline insane. I especially love the Neo-Nazi dude, who I’m guessing has all sorts of praise for Hitler, with a long list of grievances against Bush. OMGLOLFTW.

  33. I think that the flow chart itself is prejudiced in that it assumes that if you are white, from the south, or don’t agree with Obama that you’re a racist.

    Why is there such a need to lable someone simply because you may not agree with them?

    If Obama has done anything right, it was uplifting the ban that Bush had implimented on seeing our fallen soldiers on their final return home from war. We need to see their sacrifice so that we can be humbled and know that war should never be conveniant, pretty, or for profit. But rather only when necessary.

    The destination of wisdom and enlightenment is traveled down the path of humility.

    From the variety of life springs forth the fountain of diversity which only makes us more distingushed and less insignificant.

    1. Uhh, the chart is a joke.

      1. Sarcasm is racist.

        1. That’s because understanding sarcasm is a sign of intelligence

  34. I am still a racist if I hate only the white half of Obama?

    CB

    1. nope, just half-assed.

      1. How can you hate the Oreo-cream filling?

    2. I am still a racist if I hate only the white half of Obama? No it only makes you the same as Obama himself

  35. The ratio of times I’ve heard people (who hadn’t just actually said something openly racist) called a racist for disagreeing with Obama to the number of times I’ve heard people complain that anyone who disagrees with him gets called a racist is near infinity.

    1. H(People called racist for being racist)/H(People complain about being called racist) => infinity?

      So you’ve heard people openly say racist things about Obama WAY more than you’ve heard people compain about being called racist for disagreeing?

      1. No, I’d say that’s maybe .1 to .3 or so. I can’t been actually keeping count, just noticing the discrepancy.

  36. In response to Cracker Boy,

    You’re only a racist if you judge others solely on the merits of your own self love.

    Humility is the opposition of pride.

    Humility causes one to see the beauty in that which is superficially ugly, and see the uglyness in that which is superficially beautiful.

    1. It’s not the heat; it’s the humility.

  37. Troy,

    They already have the Vikings.

  38. Eupraxsophy

    You’re taking this much too seriously.

  39. Are You an Anti-Obama Racist?

    As opposed to a pro-Obama racist?

    Like Rev. Wright?

  40. Humility is the opposition of pride.

    [citation needed]

  41. We is all racist now!

  42. Uh-oh,the unemployment rate just went up to 9.8%(17% including those who are worn down from looking). This makes Obama look bad. When are they going to excise these hate-facts from tv? It is obviously racist information and intended to make Obama look incompetent.

  43. I like what you guys did with the comment system. Much neater. I just wish the articles weren’t centered like that.

    That said, I guess I’m an anti-Obama racist. Woot.

  44. ok, first off, you’re just a tree huggin’, mountain lion savin’, angry at the world cuz you couldn’t make the cheerleader squad P.O.S.!!!! And secondly, OBAMA IS NOTHING MORE THAN A MODERNDAY COMMUNIST WHO IS TRYING TO GIVE HEALTHCARE TO ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS AND LEAVE US WITH THEIR FUCKING BILL OK DUMBASS?? AND HE’S ALSO TRYING TO GET ACORN AND ALL THOSE OTHER TREE HUGGER ORGANIZATIONS TO DO THIS BECAUSE HE’S GOT FRIENDS INSIDE THE COMPANY AND HE WANTS TO POCKET AS MUCH MONEY AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE…..
