I’m embarrassed for having supported this woman against my better judgment. I agree that we have come a long way under mainstream conservatism.
I can’t imagine anyone groveling and apologizing for something so absurd in the Alabama of the 1960s. This is why conservatives have been routed in every battle of the culture war. They are all a bunch of spineless weaklings who are incapable of pushing back against faux outrage.
“Gov. Kay Ivey is contacting state legislators, and apologizing for her role in a racist student skit from her time as an Auburn student.
Ivey was president of her Alpha Gamma Delta pledge class at Auburn. Photos of her sorority sisters in blackface emerged earlier this year. None showed the governor.
But Thursday she apologized after audio emerged of a skit at a Baptist Student Union Party. The audio is a radio interview of Ivey and her then-fiance, Ben LaRavia. He describes Ivey as wearing blue coveralls and said she “had put some black paint all over her face.”
LaRavia in the interview said they were acting out a skit called “cigar butts” that “did not require a lot of talent, as far as verbal talent, but did require a lot of physical acting, such as crawling around on the floor looking for cigar butts and things like this, which certainly got a big reaction out of the audience.” …”
This is stupid!
Who cares that granny wore blackface in the 1960s? No one but leftwing journos who everyone here already hates anyway. The answer should have been “I will not apologize to the mainstream media for something so trivial. I am focused on the real issues facing our state as your governor. The mainstream media is the Enemy of the People and can talk a long away off a short plank.”
Note: Blompf’s sole redeeming quality is that he doesn’t taken shit from these people. It is one of the few areas in which he deserves credit.
In the words of “Red Stick” (from the old Disney movie, Davy Crockett – King of the Wild Frontier), “you talk like woman.” Which makes sense in Gov. Ivey’s case, since of course she is one. The ones that get me going are these effiminate queers such as Ralph Northam and his A.G., and Gov. Lee of Tennessee. In their cases this sort of thing is truly pathetic, as you say.
My grandmother mentioned that there was a popular commercial in the United States called the Frito Bandito around 50 years ago that was taken off the air even back then. She was never offended by it nor did she know any other Mexicans personally who took offense.
I personally love American music of the 1950/1960’s. There is a song by Pat Boone called Speedy Gonzales. No one I know is offended by it.
I have seen blackface in Mexico. I do not think the average person cares. The American witch hunts now extend to 50 years ago???
I do not care if anglos dress up as Mexican images like the sombrero and bandoliers or even darken their faces some. It works both ways. I have pretended to be a Texan with a fake thick accent going into a store to order something. My anglo friends did not care. I look mostly white most of the time.
The United States is truly an exceptional country. But not in a good way.
I have no doubt you and your friends would ‘laugh your asses off’ at a video parody my nephew, Justin, and his wife, Cathy, did awhile back wherein Justin plays the role of president Trump, declaring “I love the Mexican People!,” and Cathy (wearing a sombrero and a grin from ear-to-ear) comes into the picture. If I could share it with you and everyone here, I would. It is hilarious. It is of course mocking this clown president we have, Mr. Trump, as well as the bottom-of-the-barrel scrapings from Mexico he is declaring his love for.
Always nice to hear from you. I am pretty sure we would have fun with the video you described. I can enjoy making fun of others and Mexicans when done in good fun. Most people can also tell when someone is pandering to them like Trump was doing.
There was also a Mexican cartoon mouse named Speedy Gonzalez, miss. His heavily accented voice was supplied by Mel Blanc, the jewish comedian who also did the voices for Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck and many other Looney Toons characters. What made Speedy so funny was that he was always in a hurry, whereas Mexicans are known for being very slow and lethargic. You don’t see much of Speedy these days because the Cultural Marxists have condemned him as a racist stereotype.
Since Speedy was so fast it would appear he was not a stereotype after all. So even by Cultural Marxist standards their condemnation would be illogical.
You know your cartoons.
” . . .it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury signifying nothing”.
Never apologize, never back down. As soon as you do, the SJWs own you. Once you are cucked, you are over. The mark of the coward is now on you, loser.
She should step down, not for what she did in the past, but for the apology.
Like I’ve said before. We gotta get rid of our scalawag and cuckservative politicians.
Now that the old bag apologized for that unspeakable crime the nigras won’t rape, rob and kill us white folks any more.
I bet Kay Ivy was hot, hot, hot, back then.
You heard about the guy who goes to his 50th class reunion and wonders who all of the old people sitting around in the room are?
