John Boehner’s Future Son-In-Law?
Chris Rock once said that whomever you attack or make fun of, there’s a good chance that individual is going to wind up in your family tree, if he or she is not there already.
My friend and fellow racism-chaser, the Field Negro, had the following on his blog, Get your laugh on, ladies and gents.
Apparently, the Field, who blogs from the “city of brotherly love” (aka Philadelphia) is seen taking to task an elected official who called one of her collegues an “uppity N–ger”:
“Buena Vista Township Clerk Gloria Platko is resisting demands that she step down after another local official, Interim Township Manager Dexter Mitchell (a Democrat), taped a phone conversation in which Platko referred to Township Supervisor Dwayne Parker (also a Democrat) as “an arrogant nigger.”
The 63 year-old Democrat later apologized for the “slip of the tongue,” but shockingly insisted that her use of the slur doesn’t make her racist, because she has “eaten Thanksgiving dinner with black friends at their house.”
Ah, yes, the “I have Black Friends, therefore I can’t be a bigot” argument. Works wonders for those who get caught with le slip of le tongue (NOT!). The amusing thing is, those who utter those “slurs” actually believe that just because you have an ethnic friend (or two), when you make those slurs, having them as friends gets you a “get out of jail free” card.
Word to the wise – it DOES NOT. In fact, it should make your ethnic friends question your ass about the sincerity of your friendship.
Of course, we all know that the ReThugs don’t have the market cornered on bigots – though they’re trying like hell. Gloria Platko is a Democrat. Democrats have some bigots in their midst as well (cough, Harry Reid, Max Baucus, Bill Clinton, cough). Well, maybe I’m being a little hard on Clinton, and no, he doesn’t get his Black Card returned to him, but the other ones have done just as much to stymie the POTUS’ agenda as anyone on the ReThug side of the aisle.
So, the Field’s’ racism-chase (and me as his loyal sidekick) brought the next development. Orange Julius (aka Speaker of the House John Boehner) has had a “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” moment, courtesy of his daughter, Lindsay, who’s engaged to, as Field puts it, “a fellow Yawdie” (meaning he’s from Jamaica, mon):
I bet John Boehner would never call a “dark skinned” person an “arrogant Nigger”. No matter how much that Obama fellow pisses him off he would never say that. (Publicly.)
He really wouldn’t say it now that he is about to get a “dark skinned” son in law.
Not only is he of the darker persuasion, but, to my pleasant surprise, he also happens to be a fellow yawdie.
Yeah, mon, a Jamaican. And there’s more: he got busted by the po-po in Florida for smoking the good stuff back in 2006, so I really don’t know what the beef is, except he’s a brotha and apparently, arrogant enough to propose marriage to the Speaker’s Daughter. Which is development enough, considering her father belongs to a political party that’s doing it’s damndest to return things back to the 1950s:
They’re going to the chapel and they’re ganja get married.
The fiancé of House Speaker John Boehner’s daughter was once busted for pot possession, a new report said Wednesday.
Lindsay Boehner, 35, is engaged to Jamaica-born Dominic Lakhan, who was arrested in 2006 in Florida after a police officer pulled him over for a traffic violation, the National Enquirer reported.A cop in Pembroke Pines, Fla., found 4 grams of cannabis in his ashtray.Pot wasn’t the only illicit substance allegedly in the car. Cops also “observed in plain view a 16 oz. Natural Light beer can opened in the driver door,” the Enquirer said, citing a police report.“Officer also detected the odor of burnt cannabis emitting from the interior of the vehicle,” according to the police report.” [Source]
You know it’s sad when media outlets like the National Enquirer can be counted on to tell the truth about these things, ’cause we all know Boehner’s going to keep his yap shut or else cry into his bourbon in the nearest Capitol Hill bar, especially at the thought of being grandfather to some brown kids, and father-in-law to a Yawdie, while continuing to get punked by that Black Man in the White House.
