Worker Suspended For Anti Obama Email

From a color blinded Associated Press:

Month-long suspension ordered in Obama e-mail flap

Tue Dec 14, 2010

BATON ROUGE, La. – A Louisiana State Senate employee has been formally reprimanded and suspended for a month without pay because she sent an e-mail to hundreds of government workers that appeared to try to show President Barack Obama as white.

Senate President Joel Chaisson announced the punishment Tuesday for Senate researcher Tammy Crain-Waldrop. She can return to work Jan. 3 and must send a written apology to Senate and House staff and lawmakers.

What a Christmas present for Ms. Crain-Waldrop.

She also will have to attend diversity training.


Crain-Waldrop sent a message that included a doctored photo of Obama with light skin and says, "Do you like him any better now? No? Me neither ….. Then you’re not a racist."

Chaisson called the message, which Crain-Waldrop sent by mistake to the Capitol e-mail post office box Nov. 30, "highly inappropriate."

This ranks right up there with people being fired for using the word ‘reneged’ or Hallmark apologizing for its greeting cards about ‘black holes.’ This email is the polar opposite of racism. But never mind that.

Not even imaginary crimes against Mr. Obama can be tolerated. For any criticism of the great man is literally lèse-majesté – that is, ‘injured majesty.’

Still, you would think our first ‘post racial’ President would seize on this opportunity to intervene and discourage such a travesty of justice. (He could even issue a Christmas Winter Solstice pardon.)

But of course you would be wrong.

    Reminds me of the Washington fellow who
    was struck off for using a perfectly appropriate
    Scandinavian word, “niggardly” in a sentence
    regarding spending or supplying. Even when
    this was pointed out as having nothing to do
    with the Negro race, he still got busted. Don’t
    bother us with the facts, we be knowing what
    we know!

    She should sue.

    Oh wait…..

    She should sue after the first Arab-American president is evicted from office.

    It is only a matter of time before someone forced to suffer through the reeducation camp known as “Diversity Training” snaps and someone ends up dead.

    Is that Blago’s hair on Obama?

    I think it’s pretty clever and obviously not racist. But then again, anything that doesn’t paint Obama as the opposite of what he truly is, is now defined as racist. Post racial indeed.

      Looks like a slightly cleaned up version of Alfred E. Neuman. Even the slogan fits the bill: “What? Me worry?”

    I’d tell them “F$@# YOU” and cram your diversity training.
    Keep your dignity woman!
    Flip ’em off and find a place to work where humans actually laugh at things.

    JohnMG, you were reading my mind! That was great got my day off to a great start. By the by, where are this nice ladies First Amendment rights? So, let me get this straight, somebody can burn our flag, and it’s free speech. But make a funny picture(hell, it doesn’t even contribute to global warming!)sic, and you are punished outside of the law? So goes our freedoms, with a whimper and a whine.

    As John points out, can none of these LA nimrods see that the image definitely represents President Miracle, not as some garden variety whitey, but as none other Alfred E Newman, the pictorial mascot of MAD magazine? Sheesh!

    Here’s Alfred’s Wicki bio and lineage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_E._Neuman

    Thanks for posting that – I’d looked all over for it – of course the msm can’t display it as often as they did of Bush as chimp, Bush as Hitler, Bush as . . .

    I know in this environment – people are loath to quit a job – but come on – have you seen what goes around the Internet (and where is the proof that this originated with this person)? Passing it on – some people just hit Forward reflexively.

    Diversity training? This guy is half white – why does the media and DNC continue to forget that always?

    And yes, it does look like Alfred E Newman! How damn appropriate.
