Saint Jo Ad

It's a little blurry, but here's the "Notice" that appeared in the Saint Jo equivalent of the Green Sheet. I referenced this a couple of days ago. (Thanks, Thomas.)

that's what he's doing to our country..nigger rigging it for us all. it's easier to bring everybody down to the nigger's level than to bring them up to the level of white-americans. all you have to do is look at the continent of africa.

Racist. There's nothing else to say about it. You can close the comments on this thread now.

Unacceptable. So is this representative how the mindset in Saint Jo?

The gap between the hinterland and modern America is great. That language is probably only heard from a certain age bracket.....thus the solution is not far off.

That's the kind of comments that were very frequent a few years ago in the Alvord Gazette.

I dont understand what the big deal is.

The government is always trying to change the ways of the past. Just keep using the old term until the president signs this into law.

I will personally mail $500 cash to whoever will post the name of the Company that printed this and their physical address as well as the names of any other persons responsible for this ad.

Post the information along with address - can even use a P.O. Box.
I may even throw in some extra if this can find its way to a major news outlet in the DFW area.

When will we get beyond the racism? Our country is a great experiment which seems to be going badly at the moment. It's time to band together not splinter into groups that fight each other.

What tiny little minds that find humor in this denigration of the president of all of the United States. Wise Co white trash examples like this (and several bloggers) just continuously embarrass themselves.

To 5:56 p.m. How can you say we are embarassing ourselves. Obama has embarassed this entire nation. Get your head out of the liberal media and open your eyes.

6:43 youre a f*cktard. our credibilty around the world went up after obama was elected. no question.

get your head out of rush limbaugh and glenn beck books.

Last time I checked, Barack Obama has achieved quite a bit more - about one hundred fold - more than any Wise County blowhard - complaining about the state of our nation.

Comments like 9:58 come from someone that probably didn't do sh*t in college, has a lame-*ss job and claims that are somehow qualified to speak about national affairs and desparately needs their *ss kicked.

Tempest in a teapot.

Consider the possibilities:

1) The publisher of the newsrag thought it was funny.

2) The copy person at the newsrag thought it was funny, and the publisher had no knowledge of it.

3) The copy person at the newsrag was pi$$ed at the publisher, and inserted it for retribution.

In any event, it should in no way serve as an indictment for St. Jo or Montague County, Bud Kennedy be damned, than any of hundreds of examples one could find in Denton, Dallas, or Tarrant Counties.

I grew up in Texas. Heard that term as a kid, used it into my adulthood. Determined that it wasn't polite, and stopped using it. But I can't believe that some folks are such pantywaists that they think this constitutes an egregious act.

You know, a couple of synonymous terms are 'jerry-rigged' and 'southern-engineered'. As a white Anglo-Saxon Christian, am I to take umbrage and go running to find a dip$hit newspaper columnist to air my grievance?

As John Stossel says, "Give me a break!"

There's nothing but poor white trash in Saint Jo...

I was raised to respect the President no matter if you agreed with them or not. It was called being a loyal American. The fighting and ugliness is hurting our nation - and you are as much of the problem if you join in.

As for the ad - racism pure and simple.

That's absolutely disgusting, and I would hope any decent person would agree.

everyone should respect the potus whether he is a nigger or only 1/2 nigger.

Anonymous said...

all you sanctimonious PC sorts continue to miss the point.

1) The term, nigger-rigging is based on the reality that historically, black tradesmen did inferior work. While that is not the truism today that it once was, there's still something to it, at least in carpentry, electical and mechanics. That has been my personal experience.

2) Blacks, just like many whites, continue to use the term in recognition of a hurriedly and poorly done task that lacks in quality but will be good enough for now.

When the niggers quit saying it, I'll quit saying it. In the meantime, the double standard is more destructive to race relations than cultural terminology.

Besides, it is kinda funny.

"Presidential Solution" Ha, surely even BO can laugh at that.

Obammy is Not the way. He is on his way out next election just wait and see the land slide vote.

Time to reenigg. LMAO

@9:05 --

The word is jury-rigged, not jerry-rigged. It is not a slur of any kind.

Anonymous said...

@11:15 While the term 'jury-rig' in fact predates 'jerry rig', the latter is in fact a recognized adjectival phrase connoting a hasty and perhaps shoddy field repair.

The pejorative of 'jerry rigging' originated among Allied forces upon observing makeshift repairs that German soldiers had made to their arms and matériel.

You're partially correct, in stating that jury rig is not a slur, inasmuch as in the strictest sense it has to do with deploying a spare assembly, especially in a maritime context.

Sure enough, Wise county and Montague county, which is where St. Jo is located, is full of bigots. At least four of them have shown up on this thread. But in reality both counties have been among the last to embrace the change that was envisioned by one of the last Great Republican Presidents that actually believed in fiscal restraint, as well as Civil rights. He also came from Illinois like our current President.
Oh and yeah, 6:43 does need a new news source rather than Rush and Glen. Haters foment hate, and hate will get their "Christian" asses into hell a lot faster than they can say AMEN.

This thread belies the assumption that bigots and racists are uneducated. Sadly though, the ability to put together a coherent and well structured sentence doesn't preclude ignorance.

Where are all the people that whined during Bush the Second about the meanies attacking the President? "You are either with us, or against us?" The people saying that we should execute traitors that dare speak against the President?

You're awful quiet now.

12:05, You are going to be busier than an Amarillo windmill. You can start with about half of all Afro-Americans, Robert KKK Byrd, and all rappers. Let us know how you are progressing.

What are you fed up with white guy?

The N word?

Well....start by kicking the ass of all those people that you are trying to protect from the use of the n-word. They use it nonstop.

How about you start with some gang member in South Oak Cliff, have at it, Chief!

Anonymous said...

the afro-americans, rappers etc. do not say "nigger" they say nigga.

i will though, qualify my statement by saying i will kick any white guy's *ss who uses the Nword in a derogatory manner.

5:30, I hope you feel better after kicking Robert Byrd's ass. He'll probably put up a good fight but I think you can take a 92 year old man.

I am always astounded how very quickly leftists want to just relinquish the 1st Amendment rights of others when it comes to perceived "ignorant speech". The entire Bill of Rights is something that is gleefully being swept away via supporting this current administration. An administration who admittedly hates what America represents and a potus who was a member of the Marxist party in college, where he attended under the umbrella of financial aid as a foreign student.

But, hey. Facts beez all rayciss n' sheeit, gnome sayin'?

To all the niggers on here complaining about racism:
Get over it. The entire world hates you, not just White Americans. Hispanics, Russians, all Asians, all Europeans, they all hate you, and for very good reason. You are both completely worthless and highly destructive to any civilized human society.
Now, with that out of the way.
If you niggers want to stop being treated like and called niggers, then FIRST and FOREMOST, you MUST STOP being niggers, and living nad behaving like niggers. Until you niggers stop, nothing will change. This is an ironclad, 100% guaranteed promise.
That is the price and the reality of living amongst human beings more evolved and civilized than yourselves; when you act wrongly, you get called out for it and treated accordingly. It is this social aspect that promotes self-responsibility in society, something that is completely and utterly foreign to niggers.
If you continue to act, live, and behave like niggers, you WILL be treated as niggers and called out as the niggers you are. It will NEVER stop, until you stop being niggers yourselves. The burden is on YOU to stop being niggers, not on everyone else to stop calling you out for it.
It is in your hands now, as we all wash our hands clean of it. It is not our responsibility to show and teach you unevolved apes how human beings are supposed to live, act, and behave in modern human civilization.
If you want your depraved situation to change, then YOU niggers must change, or else it WILL continue forever after.
Trust me, we all are hoping that one day, you worthless niggers evolve into something that can at best pass for even a low level of humanity, we really are. But we are not holding our breath.
So make the change, or don't. We really don't care anymore. It is you niggers that will suffer the consequences, not us.
