Speaking Of Ignorant...

The most entertaining portion of last night's election coverage wasn't on CNN or FOX News ??? it was on Facebook, where all of the crazies congregated to update their statuses in rapid succession. As you may know, I spent the first 22 years of my life in Texas, so 90 percent of my friends on the networking site are Republicans. I did not know, however, that most of them are also clinically insane.

After the jump, my top 10 favorite (and by favorite I mean infuriating) statuses from the aftermath of Barack Obama's victory ??? and yes, the picture at left is someone's actual Facebook photo.

Oh, and the names have been hidden to protect the ignorant.

Update: E-mail me any appalling statuses you find on your friends' Facebook pages! E-mail to: whitney@mollygood.com.

10. Xxxxxx Xxxx is watching the socialists burn down America.

9. Xxxx Xxxxxx is going to quit college so the government can take care of him…

8. Xxxxxxx Xxxxx is starting to think about all the "freebies" hes going to take advantage of over the next four years.

7. Xxxxxx Xxxxxx is america just elected robin hood….say goodbye to all your hard earned money fellow middle-incomers'.

6. Xxxxxxxx Xxxxxx is quitting my job so I can get a piece of everyone elses wealth! Welfere isn't insulting, it's normal right?!

5. Xxxxxxx Xxxxxx has lost all hope in the American people…the next 4 years is going to be the nightmare that might possibly never end.

4. Xxxxxx Xxxxx is so happy about higher taxes and all those abortions heading our way… or not!

3. Xxxxxx Xxxxx is sickened that osama is president. oops! i mean obama.

2. Xxxxx Xxxxx Xxxxxxxxx is guess there are a lot of bums in the US that voted 4 suddam…i hope some crazy radical kills him.

1. Xxxxxxxx Xxxxxx wants to know do we have to start worshiping Allah?

I've seen a few brave souls on Facebook trying to rationalize with these rampant idiots, but the best (actual best, as opposed to most infuriating)thing I've sen today was posted by a friend of mine, name removed, who attends Western Carolina University, which some of you may remember is the school where someone shot a black bear, put Obama signs on it, and left it on campus.

"I am already fed up with reading about how Obama will ruin this country. I feel like every sore loser has come to speak out against someone who has a different idea. The man won. I know it is your right to be bitter that your candidate didn't win, but never have I seen such a group of pessimistic babies. If for no other reason, just blame W. There are many many voters that voted against Mccain because he is a republican. Almost everyone is sick and tired of being let down by a republican reign. The republicans had their chance in power and I'll say it again, they let us down time and time and time and time again. If you say Obama and the Democrats are going to ruin this country, they will have a tough time topping the miserable job that the republicans did, that is for damn sure. All and all, just be happy that things now have a chance to be different and stop your complaining. I am personally ecstatic of how the elections turned out.

The Repubs had their 8 years. What did they do? Destroy the economy. Nearly wipe out the middle class. Invade other countries under false pretenses for their oil. Cloak their base with a mantra of hate and distrust for anyone different from themselves (i.e. not white, Christian and heterosexual). Since their guy was in charge, they seemed to think it was their god-given right to constantly spew hatred in the name of Jesus. I find this odd since Jesus was the original peace loving hippie who hung with known sinners and did not judge them.
Grow up people. Don't you think it is time to heal these gaping wounds this country has been inflicted with over the past 8 years?

I wish people would realize that "Christian" is not one of the requirements to run for president. Even if Obama was Muslim, he still would have had my vote, because it was not MUSLIMS collectively that attacked us on 9/11, it was Al Qaida. Repeat: Not all Muslims are part of extremist groups. I also like how one of Whitney's friends couldn't even spell welfare correctly. People fail to realize how our system works. People are under the impression that welfare means you are raking in all this cash to sit on your ass. My mother was on welfare and all she received was enough for the basic needs. Sitting on your ass is not a good way to make money. It's worth it to have a job, otherwise everyone would be on welfare. Welfare is for people who can't find a good enough job to support their family, but it's not something most people are going to want to live off of for their entire life when they can make more money working or at a better job. By the way, my family qualified for food stamps, etc. and they are some of the hardest working people I have ever met. They worked jobs most of these stuck up assholes would have cringed at. So to act like an Obama administration means supporting crackheads, you are sorely mistaken. Yes, there are SOME lazy people on welfare, but for every lazy person there are 4 little children starving who can't help it their parents are poor. I'm sorry but I don't think it's okay to let children starve in order to have money for your 5th foreign luxury car for your rich family. Some people are so selfish, but yesterday proved to me that the majority of Americans right now are selfless. We should be proud.

Date: Nov 5, 2008 8:11 AM
Subject: Business owners….
Body: Dear Fellow Business Owners

As a business owner who employs 30 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama is our next president, and that my taxes and fees will go up in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, I figure that the Customer will have to see an increase in my fees to them of about 8-10%. I will also have to lay off six of my employees. This really bothered me as I believe we are family here and didn't know how to choose who will have to go. So, this is what I did.

I strolled thru the parking lot and found eight Obama bumper stickers on my employees cars. I have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off.

I can't think of another fair way to approach this problem. If you have a better idea, let me know. I am sending this letter to all business owners that I know.

No. 78 chellelee79 says:

Hmmm. Most of my myspace friends either don't mention the election at all, or have officially announced the end of the world. I've also seen a few bulletins where people are are comparing Obama to Hitler and Marx, and I'm also in the middle of authoring my own bulletin in response to them.

The funny thing is- I'm the only person in my "myspace circle" that lives in Texas, and I'm also the only person in that circle that voted for Obama. I know for a fact I'm the only person in my town that had an Obama sign in my front yard. I got a lot of complaints, but I left the sign up anyways. And then when I woke up this morning- it was gone.

And for Christy- I am seriously relieved there weren't enough people like you to get McCain into office. Your train of thought lacks all rationality and your ever present smarm negates any viable argument you can offer. I AM a christian, I DO believe in God, I make sure the first 10% of my income goes to the church, and I can 100% say that not only is Obama the man I want to represent me, but that he is the man that is best to lead America in the right direction.

I am so tired of the damn trolls and their antics. I thought it was suppose to be Firecrotch Day.

No. 83 say what? says:

man oh man…nothing but doom and gloom from the McCain supporters.

McCain himself has indicated his support for the new prez, why can't his supporters do that? it's nothing but "this country is over as you know it" and crap like that. it's as if they WANT America to go down the tubes just so they can be right and say I told you so.

Country first? methinks not.

Rumour has it (#64) - Exactly, Canada would probably make most republicans shit their pants, we are way too tolerate for their liking. All my friends here in Canada are so happy that Obama won! Congrats guys!

No. 85 say what? says:

@rumoUr 64…Canada sounds pretty great…even tho I supported and voted for Obama, I might move there anyway! but it IS kind of cold up there, and I am a total WUSS when it comes to cold weather. hmmm…a dilemma.

and sar…the "kenyans never lose races" made me laugh long and hard. that was genius.

I used to just skip across the border all of the time. I wouldn't mind moving to Canada but not because of the election, I just love it there. I had some very fun times in Windsor between the ages of 19 and 21.

My daughter and I were laughing at the conservatives threatening to move to Canada or Europe. Then we wondered where they could go that's MORE conservative than the U.S., and it hit us:they can move to the Middle East! Pretty damn conservative there, right?

I'm not sure what else I could add to the comments that hasn't already been said better except that it will be fun to see these haters eat their words when they start benefitting from Obama's governing of the country. Assholes.

@85 say what? - I live in Vancouver, so it's not that cold in comparison with the rest of Canada or in comparison to a lot of US states. I don't even own a winter coat or snow boots and I can't ski.

Um…while Canadians are really really flattered that Republicans would consider moving up here, it's really okay, please don't trouble yourselves. It's not that we wouldn't love to have you, it's just that..um..you wouldn't like it here. It's cold, for one. Brrrr. Very cold. And um..oh! our football is weird. Bigger field, stuff like that. And we have wacky accents, you wouldn't understand a word…you'd just be uncomfortable. So, you know. Hang in there! Stay right where you are.
(Psst-if you voted for Obama, I've got a spare bed in my guestroom, here in Montreal. It's fall, so do bring a sweater.)

First of all, reading all of this makes me a bit sick, but I'm glad people are posting the rants of their ignorant "friends"
While most of the statuses I were happy, I saw a couple of angry statuses and some truly horrible text messages. I'll post both:

Xxxxxx is hellooo depression.
Knowing him, he's talking about a "Great Depression" type of depression

and for the text messages:

On election night:
"I can't fu***** believe that Obama was elected. I'm going to pop a cap in that ni***** ass"

and later, from the same person:
"MESSAGE FROM THE SENATE:
Hold all assassination attempts until Martin Luther King Jr. Day! We don't want to have more than one holiday for a ni****."

No. 104 Keith says:

Maybe all of us expats who left BECAUSE of the last 8 years (really, the s__t started hitting the fan in 1994) should do a head count to figure out whether we outnumber the racist right. Seriously, Obama's election almost makes me believe that there's hope for the US, but don't blame those of us who did leave if we are still a bit skeptical (this article gives good reason for that skepticism).
