Conservative blogger posts Obama photo in chains with fried chicken

Source: CBS-WRAL affiliate

A blogger for conservative NC think tank The John Locke Foundation is being asked to explain why she illustrated a story on President Obama's position on North Carolina's proposed marriage amendment with an altered image of Obama in chains and high heels with a bucket of fried chicken.

On Monday, "Meck Deck" blogger Tara Servatius posted a story stating that the president took a public position against the amendment to boost his chances of winning North Carolina in November. Accompanying the story was an image of the president’s face Photoshopped onto an African-American man wearing high heels and chains. Between the man's legs is a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Update: Servatius has since resigned.

The story didn’t come to our attention till Wednesday evening, when liberal-leaning bloggers began tweeting links to it. Within an hour, the photo was removed from the story, though at the time of this post, it was still available on the think tank’s servers.

Do they really think this kind of shit isn't going to get found out? Adding insult to the injury is that nobody associated with this shithole "think tank" thought to say "you know this post may not be the smartest thing we've ever done".

Not a lot of thinking going on in that tank IMO.

3. From August 2010: Tara Servatius Linked to Terrorist White Supremacist Group : League of the South



Here is a picture of WBT-1110 hate radio personality Tara Servatius attending a League of the South meeting. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, there are 29 hate groups in North Carolina. 4 of these are League of the South groups located in Charlotte, Durham, Wilmington and Burlington.

The League of the South is a White Supremacist Organization that advocates the destruction of the United States of America and the US Constitution.

9. Why are these goons working at a think tank named after John Locke? He wasn't regressive.

While some of his writings could be twisted to fit the patrician model that is embraced by Republicans, he was nothing like these people:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_contract

And that link to this woman's activities with the racist group, where do they get off connecting these people with the Founding Fathers?

Although there was slavery at the time, perpetrated by the most dangerous corporations of that era, plantations, did they learn nothing?

Instead, they want to take us to before the Revolution and the Constitution and any of the amendments. The depravity of this kind of thinking is sickening.

Because in following the story of the picture we see much, much more.

15. Libertarians think he is their founder; and they attach themselves to "states' rights" movements

and "states' rights" movements are frequently excuses for the slavery of southern states.

What libertarians see in Locke:

The Limits of the Sovereign: By definition, moral sovereignty can only be that which protects the individual liberty; all else is tyranny (immoral power of one over another). Lock had argued that the role of civil government was only to protect the public good and “Civil interests I call life, liberty, health, and indolency of body; and the possession of outward things, such as money, lands, houses, furniture, and the like.”

http://www.class.uidaho.edu/engl_258/Lecture%20Notes/social_contract.htm


(Notice 'possession', rather than the less materialist, and more empathetic, 'pursuit of happiness' of the Declaration of Independence).

And libertarians like smaller units of government, like states, rather than countries. So they throw their lot in with the other states' rights fanatics - the white supremacists, who are still trying to paint the American Civil War as an attack on states, and nothing to do with slavery at all, no sirree - and who also think that states shouldn't have to listen to federal laws like the Civil Rights Acts.

22. Thanks. IMHO, libertarianism leads to patrician governance:

See if you see the simliarities to the way the GOP wants and is running things. Democrats marvel at the corruption, nepotism, bribery and dirty tricks they use, but they shouldn't. Just because we don't have aristocrats as we once did, doesn't mean it won't end up the same.

I've argued online with libertarians in the past and those who are the most honest espouse most of these views here. Some define democracy as 'mob rule' and are against direct presidential elections, etc.

When I pointed out the similiarites with their push for privatization, ending the public sector, not paying taxes, ending all regulations as being turning the control over to a corporate state that is little different from this below, they yell they aren't in favor of monarchy, but you decide if the effect would be the same:

"Early Roman society was made up mostly of free citizens, but there was a core group of aristocratic families. The distinction between the general free population and the aristocrats gradually became clearly defined into ‘orders' known as the plebeians (the majority) and the patricians (the aristocrats). There doesn't seem to have been any ethnic basis for the division. Instead, the distinctions came about through wealth founded on land. The original patrician families became organised into clans (gentes) of families tied together through marriage and by owning so much land they ended up controlling Roman society.

In Rome's early days, the patricians had total control of all political privilege and all high offices including the priesthood. They achieved this out of a powerful sense of social solidarity. They were absolutely determined to hang on to their power and exclude the rest, the plebs, from sharing in it. As you can imagine, this was an arrangement that the plebs - especially the wealthier and more educated ones - resented. A political struggle between patricians and plebs, called the Conflict of the Orders, ensued.

Essentially, the plebeians fought to end the patricians' monopoly on political power and all the chief offices of state. One of the most significant changes came in 455 BC when the ban on inter- marriage between plebs and patricians was lifted. In practice what happened was that patrician families accepted marriage with wealthy pleb families because one of the key ways to keep power was to marry money. These wealthy plebs really became indistinguishable from the patricians and had little in common with the rest of the plebs.

The word plebs just means everyone else apart from the aristocracy. It started out meaning something like the ‘majority' or ‘all the rest' but came to mean the ‘mob' or ‘common rabble', and included everyone except those wealthy plebs who had gained a foothold in Rome's upper class. You can read about them in the section ‘Ordinary Citizens'. The old patrician families struggled for survival as intermarriage and the growing power of the wealthy plebs eroded them.

By Augustus's reign (27 BC-AD 14) only about 15 patrician families were left, and by Trajan's (AD 98-117) just six. In Constantine I's time (AD 307-337) the title ‘patrician' had come to mean anyone who held high office in the imperial court. Because the patricians controlled Roman society, the rest of the population became totally dependent on them, working as labourers or tenants on their land.

Out of this developed the patron-client relationship:

The patron acted like a father figure to his clients, who were often his freedmen (former slaves): He took a personal interest in their careers, financial concerns, and any legal or business problems.

The client had a duty of loyalty to his patron, which meant helping with money if his patron was in public office or had been fined, for example, or if he was captured in war and held to ransom, and generally offering him support.

Patrons and clients could never appear against one another in a court of law, even as witnesses. Having plenty of clients was a sign of status and especially useful to politically-ambitious nobles."

45. Locke also just happens to be the author

or one of the authors, of the Fundamental Constitutions of Carolina, which was adopted, but never ratified, in 1669.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fundamental_Constitutions_of_Carolina

And that's really all there is to it. Locke's own authorship, as the wikipedia entry attests, is something in doubt. I happen to think the thing really was drafted by committee, with Locke and Shaftsbury acting mainly in an editorial capacity. The prose is not really much like Locke's other writings, though that may be because he was writing in a legal idiom.

Art Pope and the other folks behind the John Locke Foundation simply stuck Locke's name on their group based on this tenuous connection in order to give it some intellectual respectability. It's simply this local connection between North Carolina and Locke, a silly one, especially given that Locke never visited Carolina.

They would like to be a little Heritage Foundation for NC. Really, though, they are simply another venue for the endless repetition of GOP talking points.

Locke has nothing to do with it.

52. White supremacy is a joke and exists only in un-informed minds

Take one example...academic achievement in accredited American universities.
Asians beat out American whites handily. Disproportionately more doctorates
are awarded to Asians in proportion to population in US.

Another example, median income by country of origin...again south Asians beat out American whites as a group.

Take sports, African-Americans excel in almost all major sports except ice-hockey.

24. She intended it to be homophobic. Her column was mocking Obama for opposing a homophobic amendment.

Amendment One will be on the May 8 primary ballots in North Carolina. If passed, we will have a constitutional amendment stating that no relationships other than marriage between one man and one woman have legal validity in the state. Equal marriage for gay people is already illegal in North Carolina. This amendment would wipe out legal protection for children, domestic violence protections, domestic unions, and any other kind of legal rights for all other couples, straight or gay. A spokesperson for President Obama said that the president is opposed to the constitutional amendment. This little right-winger wrote a column mocking the president for this position and illustrated it with this photo. In her semi-apology she states that she intended it to be mocking of his position on equal marriage. She says that the racism was inadvertent. Riiiiight.

The South is known for watermelon, fried chicken, potato salad, gravy, all that stuff served at KFC. And a staple of those Sunday church picnics, family reunions and the food given to people to keep them going after funerals. But then, the GOP is the insane clown posse of 2012.

16. Even when they mock what some of them call 'talking black' or whatever, they are talking about the

English language as it was spoken many years ago, in the South. When I moved to the northwest, I got my first racist voicemail.

I'm white, but to the wrong number who called me, I must have 'sounded black.' That's what he said, 'Why don't you go back to Africa, or learn to talk white!'

I called my white landlady who was married to a black man, and she listened to it. I was more than a bit shook up at the vehemence. And my naive assumption that racism was mostly a southern problem. She gave me some history so I'd understand.

But with the food things, for some reason the racist think it's different that blacks like the same food as whites do. They like grits, beans, collards, cornbread, sausage and chittlings, too.

It's cognitive dissonance at its worst. They need some face time in front of a mirror.

To me, fried chicken is simply a southern cuisine. So the picture seemed perfect to illustrate Obama's Southern strategy. My goal was to tell the GOP to avoid this issue at all costs."

There is nothing wrong with sitting on the grass and eating fried chicken.

There is nothing wrong with his clothes, whether he's gay is or not.

People that don't recognize that and don't respect him as a human being have a serious perception problem.

They are petty and don't have enough joy in their lives so they seek to drag others who are happy down.

27. "If it offended anyone, I'm truely sorry."

I hate it when I see that phrase. She didn't view it as offensive. (They never do.) How do you change people's minds when they can't even recognize racist content. As far as she was concerned there was nothing wrong with it.

35. Why is she being asked to explain?

"Conservative blogger"...I think that explains everything perfectly.

44. Racism, sexism...it's so clear that whenever someone supports any of the -isms, they are always,

in every single situation, just not very intelligent. They can't prove their point with civil words, so they have to toss in hateful images or hateful speech to get their message out. I'm so sick of it.

It's time for corporations that advertise on ANY FUCKING NUT-JOB RADIO PROGRAM to pay a price!

54. Original title was "Obama goes gay ..."

The original title of the article with the picture was "Obama goes gay ...", not "pro gay". It was cleaned up several times.
