Don't Re-Nig: Site Down

R-RENIG-BUMPER-STICKER-large570

Perhaps you've seen the above picture circulating on Facebook. I certainly have, and I assumed it was photoshopped. Nobody would go in public with that on their car. Right?

Wrong. That's an honest-to-goodness bumper sticker that was, until today, offered exclusively by a company called Stumpy's Stickers. It was only one of many variations on a theme. In another "Don't Re-Nig" sticker, the president is pictured as a chimp. Iterested readers may view that sticker AFTER THE JUMP.

Maybe because Stumpy's web hosts were embarassed, or perhaps because Stumpy's propietors realized they didn't want to wrestle with the massed hatred of the entire United States citzenry, Stumpy's website disappeared on Friday, less than 24 hours after the "Don't Re-Nig" pic went viral.

  1. And there you have it, the REAL reason the right wing good ol boy conservatives are against Obama. Pure, bigoted rascism.

  2. I agree with TL. No matter what the right says, it is all about getting the ****** out of the White House. Period.

  3. I'm beginning to think the KKK is alive and well in this country and has infiltrated the GOP. Scary.

  4. @mytwocents The KKK infiltrated the GOP the second LBJ passed the Civil Rights Act of '64.

  5. @TL

    sadly, yepp

    Expect it to get worse. 2008 they can explain away as a fluke but Obama getting re-elected will be too much for them to accept

  7. Baby Boomers and the most uneducated learning how to use the Internets, that's all. They silently held bigoted views for decades and then they learned how to blog...and they realized they weren't alone in their nutty, racist, backwards thinking. So they feel empowered.

    Look for this times ten if Obama wins reelection. The rhetoric will get even more racist, even more violent.

    Note - these are the same folks who are currently taking credit for ending slavery, giving women the right to vote, and desegregation. Don't let them claim, fifty years down the road, they were the ones fighting for us. They have ALWAYS been on the wrong side of history.

  8. apparently, they've never heard of "once you go black, you never go back". :Þ

  9. The bumper sticker is disgusting, but so is hypocrisy. You were all ok calling Sarah Palin a "c*nt" and Herman Cain an "Uncle Tom."

    TL, by your logic, we could just as easily say that the real reason the left-wing crybaby liberals are against Romney is pure, anti-Mormon bigotry. Stupid, no?

    Posted by: Max | Mar 17, 2012 10:29:11 AM


  10. Max,
    I'm personally not against Romney because he's a Mormon, I'm against him because he flip-flops on every single issue, sometimes within hours from making the first statement. Oh, and the fact the he's republican scum!

  11. I guess some racist bigots still prefer to remain hidden the closet.

    Posted by: Oliver | Mar 17, 2012 10:55:18 AM


  12. Not to mention Romney's track record at Bain Capital. We don't need two-faced blueblood-panderers in the White House. We also don't need lecherous fools like Cain, or jingoistic trigger-happy slander artists like Palin in the White House either. Those three attacked real Americans, therefore they deserve no defense.

  13. Cue in Rush Limbaugh defending these stickers as freedom of speech and how the evil left is censoring free speech.

    Posted by: Dave | Mar 17, 2012 11:28:34 AM


  14. Also, considering a lot of Cain's attacks were aimed at black people (especially his plantation remark), and his role as a mouthpiece for more GOP attacks on the President with impunity (or so they had hoped), using him in your concern trolling was a bad move, and reveals your own hypocrisy (in essence, you're saying "It's OK if you're a Republican). He deserved every bit of criticism he got, especially for being a sleaze, unable to keep his hands to himself, and exacerbating the problem of racism whenever he spoke.

    Posted by: Sarm | Mar 17, 2012 11:30:26 AM


  15. Ah yes, I forgot that angle, Dave.

    When businesses react to Limbaugh's (and company's) influence = "THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!!"

    When businesses react to humanity's influence = "FREEDOM OF SPEECH IS UNDER ATTACK!! THE LIBERALS ARE CENSORING US!!"

    When will they learn freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences? This time in the form of losing business.

  17. It's totally all right to compare the US President to a chimp. For eight years Bush was compared to a chimp on a daily basis. Too late to complain now, lefties. You've lowered the level of discourse in this country, now deal with it.

  18. @MAX

    Where can I buy or could have bought those bumper stickers that had printed on them Sarah Palin a "c*nt" and Herman Cain an "Uncle Tom."

    Oh ..... they never existed.

  19. The website is back up...

  20. Yes, it's all totally fine, on both sides. Just be aware that it gives away what kind of person you are. Be ready to OWN it.

    Posted by: shane | Mar 17, 2012 12:46:07 PM


  21. The difference is that GW Bush frequently made faces that looked, well...chimpy. http://www.totaldiatribe.com/img/BushChimp.jpg

    A reasonable comparison would be the Obama "snob" criticism since he actually has made faces that can be read that way. http://images.sodahead.com/polls/002285935/012977906_obama_snob_xlarge.jpeg

    But the Obama/chimp thing is flat out racism AND YOU KNOW IT, so don't even go there.

  22. The adolescent mentality that generates this crap beautifully illustrated the true feeling of a good portion of the right wing in this country.

    Posted by: ronsfo | Mar 17, 2012 1:02:32 PM


  23. Saw this on Huffpo yesterday. Lots of pretty sickening bumper stickers.

    And yeah, show me the Sarah Palin is a c u next tuesday bumpersticker.

    I don't approve of the use of that word. Two wrongs wouldn't make a right, anyway. This is blatant racism. No excusing it.

  24. and yes @TJ's comment!

  25. Bush jr = chimp: meaning stupid and the fact that he DID look somewhat simian.

    Obama = chimp: meaning racism. No one can call Obama simian looking or stupid, so the comparisons to a chimp have to refer to the historical accusations from whites that blacks are not as evolved as whites and are therefore closer to apes/chimps than humans. It's racism and its disgusting.

    Was calling Bush a chimp right? No, but the man WAS an idiot. But neither is calling Obama a chimp in any way okay. It's vile and the f* cker who made those bumper stickers should expect some serious consequences for his "freedom of speech".
