Rep. Alcee Hastings told an audience of Jewish Democrats Wednesday that they should be wary of Republican VP nominee Sarah Palin because “anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks.”
“If Sarah Palin isn’t enough of a reason for you to get over whatever your problem is with Barack Obama, then you damn well had better pay attention,” Rep. Alcee Hastings of Florida said at a panel about the shared agenda of Jewish and African-American Democrats Wednesday. Hastings, who is African-American, was explaining what he intended to tell his Jewish constituents about the presidential race. “Anybody toting guns and stripping moose don’t care too much about what they do with Jews and blacks. So, you just think this through,” Hastings added as the room erupted in laughter and applause.
I like guns. I’ve never been hunting though, and certainly not for moose. Apparently, that means I hates the blacks and the Joooooos. Because, you know, anyone who hunts and carries guns must be a racist and an anti-Semite. Isn’t that funny??
Well, hey, at least everyone in the panel was laughing. They all thought it was hilarious. Now, if only they could just get those gosh-darned KKKonservatives to stop talking about race. Oh, wait! It’s the Democrats who keep race-baiting! That’s right. I almost forgot.
Almost. Good to know that Alcee Hastings puts blacks and Jews on the same level as a moose, though. Good. To. Know.
But hey, that’s cool. At least we honkey racist gun-toting hunters can still bitterly cling to our guns and religion.
Best thing to come out of this statement? A commenter at CNN that supports Hastings’ statement creating a new word: warmonglers. Just let that roll around on your tongue a few times. Warmonglers. Really makes you laugh, doesn’t it?
