This kid’s got it right!

It’s not every day we can sit back in our secure bunkers, and rest easy knowing there are some in this new generation of heathens who truly are Real Americans. This kid is one of them, and is dead on about the president of Kenya:

Protestor1

 

Yeah! In your face, Pinkos!!!

The kid’s t-shirt displays his true patriotism even better:

protestor2

It’s good to know we have a new generation of Real Americans ready to carry the flag for us when we pass on to eternity. Hopefully, his parents were smart enough to hold him out of public schools, and build a secure bunker stocked with ammo and gold coins for him to ride out the coming apocolypse to emerge as our new ultra-president/potentate and lead us down the Real American path.

See ya later, fornicators!

Wow. Someone dresses their kid up in a shirt that says we need to fight an imaginary demon by resurrecting a real one. I am flabbergasted at the willful and malevolent ignorance and fantasy-making of these protesters. Can’t they just go play paintball and leave us practical citizens alone?

Paintball?
We play for keeps, sonny boy.

That was photoshopped on the T-shirt, it is pretty obvious.

Actually looking at the full size image (http://andrewsullivan.theatlantic.com/.a/6a00d83451c45669e20120a5bf2abd970c-popup) I don’t think it is photoshopped.

I still love the sign that says Obama is both a fascist and a communist however. I wonder if this kid ever took the time to comprehend that if Obama was a facist… no protest calling him a facist would actually be allowed.

As much as I would like to believe these types of morons aren’t representative of the Republican party or the right, I’m not so sure we can even draw a distinction at this point. It seems the Glenn Beck’s and Rush Limbaugh’s of the world are simply endorsing this behavior or perhaps even inciting it.

I’m still holding out hope that true conservatives are recognizing how out-of-whack these self-proclaimed “patriots” really are. I want the conservative movement to gain traction, but not at the expense of common sense and civility.

I was just watching Glen Beck and he said Saturday’s teabagger march on Washington D.C. was at least half as big as the Obama inauguration.

BWAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAA HAR HAR HAR.

Saturday night I heard the number 15,000.
Then Sunday I heard 30,000 and I switched the TV channel to Fox News where I heard 75,000.

Now, Monday afternoon, Beck says it was closer to half a million.

Sheesh… oh! Hang on a sec… I think he’s going to cry again…

BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAA HA HA HA HA HA HAR HAR HAR…

(ahem…)

But more to the point; this young fellow exhibits perfectly – not the fringe – but the mainstream Republicans of today.

That is: too ignorant to know the difference between a fascist and a communist, and proud of it.
(One thing that might make that image even funnier would be to play Devo’s “Dare To Be Stupid” playing in the background.)

hmmm… wish you could edit these things…
that should say to HAVE Devo’s “Dare To Be Stupid” playing in the background…

Trust me, my old graphic design ideas tell me it is photoshopped.

I thought that was Weird Al’s song.

Like Costner, I suspect that image is for real and not photoshopped.

#11 Costner on 09.16.09 at 7:59 am

I have seen that kid’s image on about a dozen websites thus far. I would suspect if it was photoshopped, shouldn’t we be seeing the original undoctored photo somewhere?

Or maybe another photo from a different angle or some outrage from right leaning blogs?

I could be wrong – it has been known to happen, but I would have thought if it was fake we would know by now.

#12 Warren Phear on 09.16.09 at 8:26 am

I have only seen this image of the kid on this blog. I don’t pretend to know a lot about photoshop…still learning bit by bit. But it just seems to me it would be hard to photoshop…especially that t-shirt. I’m looking at the word McCarthyism, especially the first M, the letter y and the last letter m. The wrinkle in the t-shirt gives just the exact distorted letter images one would expect. Can photoshop do that? And would a photoshopper even take the time to try to make it JUST RIGHT?

#13 Costner on 09.16.09 at 2:06 pm

Well WP, Photoshop is an amazing tool when used by someone with experience, so yes it would be more than possible to fake the text and make it look legitimate.

Sadly we are now in a world where we have to second-guess almost everything we see because so much of what we see is manipulated.
