Green Room

Good news from Chris Rock: Obama is sort of our dad and our boss

posted at 12:41 pm on February 6, 2013 by

Via the Examiner, the only thing that makes this slightly less creepy than Demi Moore’s famous pledge of allegiance to The One is the fact that Rock can always plead “it’s a joke” later on. Is it, though? If you wanted a concise explanation of why liberals are suddenly A-OK with kill lists and drone strikes, you could do worse than this.

Exit question: Is the president still our dad and our boss when he’s a Republican?

On the other hand he makes more sense than his crazy Uncle Joe.

He may be your Dad, Mother Fletcher, but he is not mine!!

Just remember, most of President Hollywood supporters also seem to be awfully pale…and stupid, but i digress.

A stupid, hurtful remark on my part. I apologize.

I’d say Obama has about as much chance of being Chris Rock’s daddy as anybody else….

This kind of thinking is how left-wing south american strongmen come to power.

PaPa Doc Soetoro.

“The dictators, without exception, have built their power on the social irresponsibility of the masses. They have exploited it consciously and have made no bones about it. The German masses have been told for years that the masses only give out what is put into them. They reacted to this by becoming servile followers. They themselves brought about the infamous situation. It would be nonsense to assert that the Psychopath General alone could have conquered 70 million people. ”
-Wilhelm Reich, “The Mass Psychology of Fascism.”

Da nada…Besides, your sig name is based on a machine gun, so how bad could you possibly be?…lol

BlaxPac on February 6, 2013 at 9:46 PM

America is sort of like a Fatherland, if you think about it.

And Obama is the father.

Is that what he meant?

Good Lt on February 6, 2013 at 11:01 PM

You miss some of his better stuff there…

“but every mass shooting is done by guys who live with their mother. So I believe you should need to have a mortgage to buy a gun. A mortgage is a real background check. Even if you go to jail for 30 years, you’ve still got to pay your [expletive] mortgage.”

Lets restrict gun ownership to gentrified land owners only.

Heck, lets go further, lets also restrict voting rights to gentrified land owners only. Why not?

I’d worry about being called names for promoting ideas like that; but I’m just agreeing with Chris Rock here so I’m good, right?

What’s the definition of mass confusion? Fathers Day in Harlem.

Bevan on February 7, 2013 at 5:37 AM

Chris probably needs a dad. If he had one in the first place he might not have become such a vulgar slug.

FireBlogger on February 7, 2013 at 9:01 AM

Don’t the Norks consider Dear Leader to be a father figure? Perhaps Rock would be happier living there.

Odysseus on February 7, 2013 at 9:07 AM

Ahhh yesss,,, Fascism is alive and well in the 21st century.

Open The Door on February 7, 2013 at 10:29 AM

So naturally if you misbehave Daddy is going to send the drones your way.
