"But Not BEST Friends"

In yet another example of how those born at the shallow end of the gene pool so often end up in politics comes this howler of a story

This poor guy has to play the "I can't believe how stupid I was card", which actually comes off only slightly less insulting than the outright hostility in the e-mail he probably wishes now he'd never sent

Step into the well-deserved-yet-publicly-humiliating-media-spotlight Colorado State Representative Jim Welker, R-Loveland

Fair Disclosure-the excerpts are not in the same order they are in the story, as there are two issues to post abou-First, about the e-mail and it's author

A Loveland lawmaker has been blasted by his colleagues for e-mailing an essay written by someone else that accused "welfare-pampered blacks" of waiting for the government to save them from Hurricane Katrina.


One passage says, "President Bush is not to blame for the rampant immorality of blacks."


Essay author Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, who is black, is praised on one Web site for taking on the NAACP, a "tool of the largely 'elite, socialist' Democratic Party."

As we'll see with self-described "Reverend" Peterson, he's the type who would have been right at home pounding the spikes binding Christ & Cross together, yanked the Crown of Thorns as deeply onto Christ's scalp as possible, scourging & mocking Christ and piercing Christ's side with the spear, he would have done it ASAP in order to impress his socially economic betters, those calling the shots at the National Leadership of the GOP, and Peterson would have done it without the least hesitation whatsoever

Excerpts from an essay by the Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson posted Sept. 21, 2005, on

• "Say a hurricane is about to destroy the city you live in. What would you do?

If you're black . . . you'll probably wait for the government to save you."

• "When 75 percent of New Orleans residents had left the city, it was primarily immoral, welfare-pampered blacks that stayed behind and waited for the government to bail them out."

• "About five years ago, in a debate before the National Association of Black Journalists, I stated that if whites were to just leave the United States and let blacks run the country, they would turn America into a ghetto within 10 years. (But) I gave blacks too much credit. It took a mere three days for blacks to turn the Superdome and the convention center into ghettos, rampant with theft, rape and murder."

• "Had New Orleans' black community taken action, most would have been out of harm's way. But most were too lazy, immoral and trifling to do anything productive for themselves."

• "Blacks are obligated to help themselves and not depend on the government to care for them. We are all obligated to tell them so."

Just one question for the Good Reverend Jerkoff here

How does ANY of that hateful vitriol express ANY thing Christian-in the New Testament sense of "Christianity", you know, the only one that actually dealt with Jesus and what he commanded be done in his name?

I'm no biblical expert, but the "Rev" Peterson seems far more interested in imitating the morally & ethically corrupt/bankrupt Pharisees & moneychangers in the temple that Jesus melted down about than he does teaching the word of Christ, with no mention of compassion or mercy anywhere in Peterson's nauseating & enthusiastically hateful diatribe

I challenge, I DEFY Peterson to point out where Jesus EVER sided with the Pharisees in further shunning & stigmatizing an already socially shunned & stigmatized group, ESPECIALLY as it relates to condemning the Poor

Idiocy like that so often gets the Major Karmic Bitchslapping that eventually comes due, especially as it relates to pious frauds calling themselves Men Of God

And all of which brings us to the other dimwit here, Rep Welker

Welker is now backtracking from his endorsement of Peterson's shrill class-based diatribe, and claims it was just an oversight on his part

Rep. Jim Welker, a Republican, said Thursday morning that he forwarded the article because of its message about society victimizing people by making them dependent on government programs.

He said he didn't agree with everything in the essay.

So, how's that message going over now Welker, about as well as you'd hoped?

Seems to me the REAL victimization that happened here was the poor of New Orleans actually thinking they counted as lives worth saving in the eyes of our President & Other Government Officials, both elected & appointed

The Government at ALL levels failed it's end of the social compact, and failed miserably because of rampant corruption, cronyism in rewarding campaign contributors & fundraisers and an arrogant attitude of not caring for those at the very bottom of our society financially, socially & legally

And you know the Public BitchSlapping is even MORE humiliating when administered by a member of your own political party, a righteous smackdown performed by someone-Rep Debbie Stafford-who actually dealt with those Katrina displaced from New Orleans & The Gulf Coast, and who angrily pointed out to Welker just exactly which other group was victimized by a shameful Governmental response to Katrina

House lawmakers - black and white, Republican and Democrat - expressed outrage that Welker would forward such an essay.

Rep. Debbie Stafford, R-Aurora, who worked with Katrina evacuees when they came to Colorado, said she was "appalled and sickened."

"These (were) poor people. Many of them were senior citizens and had no way to escape the hurricane," said Stafford, who is white.

And now, Welker is left to the most pathetic of rhetoric to downplay his completely self-inflicted political damage

"Forwarding this e-mail, particularly without comment, showed poor judgment on my part. I found the opinions expressed by this individual, especially if taken literally, to be offensive and inappropriate. I should not have assumed that this would be clear when received by others."

He earlier said he should have put a disclaimer on the e-mail, and will do so in future e-mails of other writers' material.

Brilliant logic Brainiac, forwarding an e-mail without any kinds of commentary or disclaimers probably IS going to be interpreted as your complete support

Something else comes up in the article, an official tribute to Welker's TRUE political talents, mutlitasking

Welker said he forwarded the e-mail over the weekend on his own computer.

But Democratic lawmakers have asked the legislature's technical staff to determine why copies of the e-mails forwarded to them by people who were upset with the content bear a time stamp of Monday afternoon, when Welker was in a committee hearing with his laptop computer.

Truly, this has the potential to be a spectacular version of "Innocent & Naive Deer Caught In The Politcal Headlights"

And with the "Good" Rep, the fun just never stops, as which card does Welker play which only compounds the negative racial aspect of that hateful e-mail?

Yes, if you guessed the following, you're correct

Welker, who is white, said he wasn't implying anything about blacks by forwarding the essay.

"Some of my best friends are of different skin color, like Ed Jones," said Welker, referring to Sen. Jones, a Colorado Springs Republican who is black.

Now gentle reader, I wish I COULD say that's where it ends, but it doesn't, as Welker still had a few tricks up his sleeves yet

Such as finding a way to make that stupid "Some of my best friends are...." comment even MORE of an idiotic strategy that backfires-BIG TIME-in Welker's face

"Some of my best friends are of different skin color, like Ed Jones," said Welker, referring to Sen. Jones, a Colorado Springs Republican who is black.

Jones said that he and Welker are friends, but not best friends.


Perhaps Welker would do well to grab himself a BIG helping of "Shut The Fuck Up", as he has a habit of saying things that get his own party rather grouchy

Welker last year took heat from his own caucus for saying he feared that if gays were allowed to marry, then people might eventually marry their animals. Republicans said they were embarrassed by his comments.

Sure does put a new spin on "Mans' Best Friend", doesn't it?
