Obama Staffer Ticketed For “Monkey” Remark

I caught this story over at protein wisdom last night, but, quite frankly, after the dumpster dive at Crooks and Liars (previous post),  I felt too dirty to continue using the laptop. And, it is a doozy!

Moving to nip in the bud some potential bad press, White House hopeful Barack Obama’s campaign persuaded a delegate to step down after she was ticketed for calling her neighbor’s African-American children “monkeys.

Ticketed? What?

On Saturday, two neighbor children were playing in the tree next-door to her house.

Ramirez-Sliwinski “came outside and told the children to quit playing in the tree like monkeys. The tree was not on Ramirez-Sliwinski’s property,” Carpentersville Police Commander Michael Kilbourne said.

But, of course, the mother of the children felt it was racist, because the kids are Black (I refuse to use African-American. I ain’t that PC). I mean, jeez, all little kids are like monkeys when around trees, no matter what their color. But, here’s where it gets good

Ramirez-Sliwinski’s $75 ticket was for “disorderly conduct,” which Kilbourne defined as, “when a person does something that alarms or disturbs another.”

For calling two kids playing in a tree monkeys? That is alarming and/or disturbing enough to get her a ticket?  This is being punished for speech, which, last time I checked, was guaranteed by the 1st Amendment. Sure, certain stuff, such as incitement to violence, and against the law, and rightly so, but this is beyond the pale. Next thing you know, I will be ticketed for the enormous number of times that I have not only called Democrats “surrender monkeys,” but actually used pictures of monkeys, and Barack Hussein Obama has been a part of that a few times.

Hey, let’s see that BHO, yokay?

    I called a toddler a monkey a few weeks back watching him climb. Thank God he was white. I could be in trouble otherwise.

    Thank God they weren’t playing on a “jungle gym”! Instant P.C. death penalty!

  3. But, was he fully white, Stacy? I’m sure some sort of liberal defamation group will find fault with you 🙂

    ROTFLOL, Bob!

    Seriously, in wireless sales, back when I started, we always had this saying that if one didn’t start selling instead of being an order taker, we would replace them with trained monkeys.

    Most of my staff at the past 2 stores were Black. The last store, I did most of the hiring, this one, I took over with most of the staff. And the business has had a large influx of Black since about 2001-2002, so, in order to not get the shit sued out of us, we say “college kids for min wage.” I catch myself almost saying it now and then.

    My niece plays like a chimp, and my nephew swings like an orangutan, and my Godchild eats bananas like a gorilla, and my grand son smiles like an ape, and when we speak about righteousness, the left-wingbats go APESH*T! BANANA UP MATEYS!!
