Racist Dipshit Sticks Foot in Mouth; Bites It Off

3197673.jpgRemember last week, when I told you about the classy Utah Senator, Chris Buttars, who said of a bill he opposed: “This baby is black … It’s a dark, ugly thing”? Well, Buttars wanted to make amends with the NAACP after the incident; unfortunately, he doesn’t know how to shut his racist mouth.

See, first: After agreeing to meet with the NAACP, Buttars backed out after learning that the media would be present because, well, the media does this weird thing where they report what you say, and since Buttars can’t help but to say dipshit things, he probably wisely backed out. Of course, that didn’t stop him from saying dipshit things — in fact, Buttars told the Salt Lake Tribune that he had become the target of a “lynch mob.

Duuuuuude! If African-Americans start accusing you of racism, among the top five stupidest things you could say is that you’re the target of a lynch mob. Appropriately, the NAACP took umbrage:

“The man knows nothing about what a lynch mob is,” said Edward Lewis Jr., the former regional president of the NAACP, holding an article about a lynching in 1925 in Price. “It’s an insult for the man to say he’s being lynched when we know what real lynchings are.”

And what does Buttars do in response? Jams that fucking foot of his through the back of his throat:

“Lynch mob is a Western term. You wouldn’t find one person in 10,000 in Utah that thinks that’s a racist term,” Buttars said in a phone interview Tuesday evening. “That’s not a racial term in my opinion. How do I know what words I’m supposed to use in front of those people?”

First of all, you are an idiot, Buttars. A third-degree bigot without an ounce of decency, you dumb fucking git. (Sorry, Senator Git). And second of all — I’m just guessing here, but if you’re trying to say the right thing, maybe you ought’nt refer to African-Americans as “those people.”

You assdrink. Quit your fucking job and go hide in a hole and die.

I think you're being too judgmental. Maybe his foot tastes really good and he just can't resist sucking on it.

hey there you free speech phony, yeah right…YOU!!!and pull your pants up!!

you are a hypocrite liar who publicly preaches free speech (except when it is something with which you disagree)but who really hates open discourse.

let’s see how stupid you people really are: (rules of the truly stupid souless morons):

1. anyone who might say, “hey, you have a black mark on your {record}{shirt} {soul}” is a racist devil to be destroyed.
If i say “that black mark on your record is one ugly baby” I should have my gonads removed by a team of man hating lesbian trasgendered half elf midgets with a speech impediment.

Pay attention to which media outlets are pumping up this story. These are the enemies of free speech.

2. Only black people can use the word “lynched”, even if they live in Lynchberg, Tenn. or Lynchberg, Va. And they should be fired if they aren’t black. All whites who are named Lynch must be sent to a concentration camp run by …. you get the idea.

3. If i say “white lie” I am a racist who must be destroyed, unless I am a homo, woman, oriental, indio, or….anything besides a white male.

This reminds me of the lynching of Don Imus. And that was concocted to discipline the talk show host roster to not speak ill of Hillary.

You do yourself a disservice by calling yourself "truth speaker" because you sound a lot more like "crazy speaker" or "really hyped up nonsensical speaker"

It's Lynchburg, VA in case you didn't know... I just want you to be able to speak the real truth in the future which is why I'm correcting you.

The "Honorable" Senator Buttars is certainly welcome to his free speech. It's better to know someone is batsh!+ insane than to have them harbor those ideas and work their insidious evil surreptitiously.

@"truth speaker"- ...Senator Buttars? Is that you?

Anyone remember when DC mayor Anthony Williams was force to fire a staffer for using the term "niggardly" at a budget meeting? Sad thing is, it isn't a racist term in that setting (it comes from two old english words basically meaning the same thing as miser). Guy basically lost his job because he offended another staffer with a limited vocabulary. Then again...after all those terms with Mayor Barry, this barely made the papers.

truth speaker - while i constantly find myself surround by the kind of easily-offended person you are attempting to satirize (I'm in college, we like getting offended), no one here is saying Buttars can't say those things, just that he's an asswipe for doing it. They're allowed to think/say that, too. Aside from on a moral level - I often find myself the only person defending offensive people on principle, but it's still not a good and right thing to say - on a political level, this guy's either too old school for his own good, or he's a goddamned idiot. A smart racist knows how to hide.

diablo - my statehood-blessed friends are always shocked by my tales of hometown dc politics. i'd forgotten that one, thanks for the fodder. Some college once tried to get a guy fired for calling an outdoor potluck a "picnic" because they said it was racist. oof. at least that one failed.

OK, first things first. You know that sniveling bitch like toad who used the word "niggardly" in front of a group of african americans was either showing off or being condenscending. Either way, the smug little shit needed to go. Secondly, "truthspeaker" is a dick.


Read up on that case before you go judging people you've never met and don't know.

How do a certain group of people become the owners of a word? The senator, concerning the word 'lynch' is correct, in my humble opinion. Think of a lynch mob rushing an old west jail to string up the cattle rustler. It doesn't have to apply to Blacks at all.

And using the word 'niggardly' is NOT condescending... the speaker was complimenting the audience with the assumption they were familiar with the word.

Jesus, people. *eye roll*

I've lived in Utah, and I believe the Senator's plea of ignorance regarding "lynching." I would also believe him if he claimed to have never met a black person; that's the kind of place Utah is.

@ Trilbynhiss

*giant eye roll*

Right. Because no other state has a moron/asswipe in their legislature.

People who think that the phrase "lynch mob" only has to do with black people need to check out the classic book and subsequent film "The Ox-Bow Incident".

Btw, was the dorky South Park character Butters named after this clown or is that just a coincidence?

I don't really see how his original comment is racist. I don't get the sense that he was actually envisoning a baby when he said it. If he had blurted out "puppy" instead, would we automatically conclude he hates black dogs? It was just an unfortunate choice of words, from what I can tell. Unfortunately, he also chose to be kind of a jerk about it.

This is right up there with that chick on "The Apprentice" who called out her opponent for talking about the "pot calling the kettle black." At least most people agreed that to interpret that as a racial slur was descending into sheer nonsense.

And finally, I would not let the media or anyone of any color take me to task for using the word "niggardly". The uproar over that still makes me mad. I think we all have more important things to do than worry about offending the ignorant.

Did truth-speaker just say "oriental"?


Honestly as much as I hate to side with an American Senator (most of whom I can't stand for other reasons than biggotry). I think if you want to get past predjudice than stop taking people to task about poorly worded speech choices and maybe start enlightening your children about "hate". Hateing an old white guy senator for misguidedly using the word lynch is just as ugly as biggotry. Grow up. I mean my 12 year old still laughs at the word Uranus but I don't smack him down for being insensitive to non earth planets.

Oh and Dustin, I think the "those people" he may have been referencing could be the media whores who spend their time looking for someone to screw up the use of a word so they can use it to their advantage. If you go looking for a reason to hate, I guess you already found one.
