Watch As Republicans Cut Off Obama Impersonator's Microphone After He Makes Fun Of Michele Bachmann

Tyler Durden's picture




 

A republican-organized roast at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside headed by comedian Reggie Brown, meant to poke fun at democrats broadly and the president in particular, turned horribly wrong, after the comic flipped the tables and after joking at Obama's expense for a good 15 minutes, decided to take some well-deserved stabs at republican candidates. After telling the crowd that as president Obama, who had a black father and white mother, he celebrated half of Black History Month, and naturally joking at Weiner's expense, he went on a less than welcome rampage, saying if former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney were to become
president, he would have his "first lady, second lady, third lady". Brown also said former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty missed
the conference because he was having his foot removed from his mouth, adding that the operation would be covered under President Obama and Mr
Romney's respective healthcare reforms, along with spinal transplants. Yet when Brown launched into a gag about Tea Party stalwart Michele Bachmann, his microphone was cut off, the music swelled and the comedian was ushered from the stage.

Must watch comedy.

Freedom of speech, US style.

 

You are allowed to speak your mind as long as it goes the right way.

 

Too bad this guy, who was born in the US, still has not understood what freedom of speech means in the US.

Some guys will never learn though.

It means that when you are paid in the US to deliver a roast and that your employee is not happy with what a roast, that it is your fault.

What happened is that I went over my minutes. They told me I had 20, but they aired a video before me and then my intro took up more time. When our liaison—they guy who introduced me–came up to me onstage, he said, "Hey, I am sorry—your time is up," and so I finished and went backstage. I was told it was because of my time, not my act, not because of anything I said.

But still, that crowd couldn't handle a single Republican joke (I feel embarrassed for all Americans when I see them clap for W, etc.), so the OP is still on point.

edit: also relevant: this quote and news item came out many hours after the OP

You don't understand what freedom of speech means in the US.  It doesn't mean you get to say whatever the fuck you want, whenever, to whoever, and suffer no consequences.  This guy was hired to do a job, his employers obviously didn't like what he was saying, so they removed him from the stage they had paid for.  Simple.

Freedom of speech means government forces "can't" silence you or jail you for voicing ideas that government officials don't agree with.  I have "can't" in quotes because obviously we don't have freedom of speech in this country.  There are many examples of egregious violations of the freedom of speech; this ain't one of them.

Disclaimer: this is a fucking stupid story.  What does it have to do with anything, really?  Every time I read the name 'Obama' or 'Bachmann' I get a little bit dumber.  I expect to be drooling by the end of election season, and I really don't need ZH to contribute to my stupidization.

Heh, in the spirit of this thread I'll humour you:

Your argument is, "You have the right to free speech... as long as you're not dumb enough to actually try it." a fair enough claim to make, considering the state of the US today.

But if they paid for a 'roast'; they got what they paid for, so the comedian fulfilled his obligation. If all they had wished for was a 'ten minute Obama hate', they should have related that to the comedian. But in light of the audience/guests that could hardly be considered a roast.

Ah, but you don't have to make things up for me to say, you can simply copy and paste:

Freedom of speech means government forces "can't" silence you or jail you for voicing ideas that government officials don't agree with.  I have "can't" in quotes because obviously we don't have freedom of speech in this country.  There are many examples of egregious violations of the freedom of speech; this ain't one of them.

When you pay for the product, you can determine if "you got what you paid for."  You didn't, so you don't.  This comedian, if he feels his contract was violated, can sue his employers.  There are no other legal issues in play.  Calling this a violation of the right to free speech is not only laughably wrong, but lessens the charge itself.

Yawn.

Actually, if you had paid attention, and weren't so obsessed with your agenda of vehemently defending the principle of 'employer's prerogative', you'd have seen long ago that all I've argued is that the organizers got what they paid for: a roast. If that was indeed in the contract, the comedian has a pretty solid case if he wasn't paid (and if he really wanted to go through all the bother and expense).

"If you can't take the heat..." maybe you shouldn't ask for a roast.

What this article, and inadvertently your posts, are a prime examples of is how Americans (for the most part) just love to dish it out, but are unfortunately too thin-skinned to take it.

Still omitting your preface I see; I guess we'll just have to assume it's there...

OK, just making sure you're not still clinging to the demonstrably false belief that his freedom of speech was violated.  "Contract violation" and "human right violation" is a pretty important distinction, despite all your blather to the contrary.

I bet that he still got his fat paycheck for the venue, what else would a professional impersonator want? In fact, I bet that the publicity that he has received has also backlogged his public engagements schedule.

It's funny, he made fun of the left for 15 minutes straight, but as soon as he started hitting the right, they took him off stage. Gotta love those spineless partisans of both the left and the right, they can never see the humor in their own idiotic behavior, rather they only see the idiocy in the "other team".

But, there was a great ending to that night that was beyond partisan politics: Ron Paul wiped the floor with every other candidate there. He fucking cleaned house!!!

Chump,

on a few things, I do agree with you.

  • There is no freedom of speech in the USA. The mainstream/commercial media is owned by the big money. They also own the government.
  • Now, legally, with the Patriot Act, people will be put in jail for their speech. Remember, the US Constitution has been suspended.
  • As for the Republican party, they are just pitiful. They are intellectually bankrupt. They cannot take a joke. No wonder they gave America such great leaders like GWB an McCain.
  • As for the Tea Party, they are ready to cut some spending but they are also ready to finance endless wars and the state of Israel with close to $3T already spent.

Waooo, people love to cling to their myth.

A fine line between the government and a republicans organized event, featuring an impersonator mocking public servants and/or politicians. And, in the end, the US is not about freedom of speech, it is about public vs private means of censorship.

As long as censorship is done on private means, well, it is okay with US citizens.

It's not a fine line.  Dude was hired.  Dude's employers didn't like the job he was doing.  Dude was fired.  It doesn't matter if he was making fun of Obama or Bachmann or reading stories to children.

Seriously, bitching about "free speech" here takes something away from all the actual cases of violation of free speech.  Learn to discern.

As long as censorship is done on private means, well, it is okay with US citizens.

Yeah, no shit.  If I hire you to lay bricks and you spend your time yapping about Dancing With the Stars or which quarterback you'd like to see play for whichever team, you're gonna get fired whether you think your "freedom of speech" was violated or not.  It's the exact, same principle at work here.

Same principle? Same as same can be understood by US citizens.

So this guy was hired to deliver a roast which includes the possibility of pouring fire on the audience.

Does the guy perform accordingly? Yes.

In your example, the guy is hired to lay up bricks and spend his time yapping. Different. Very different. In one, the guy delivers the product he was paid for. In the other, the guy does not.

But again, it is the US meaning of same. Human beings have a same right to freedom and under that same right, it was therefore normal that the US started as a slaver nations as human beings have indeed a US same right to liberty.

 

And indeed, I have yet to learn how to discern the US citizens way.

See, that's the thing, you're resorting to analysis of the contract now.  Either the comedian had the innate, human right to stand there and speak, or he did not.  Either his inherent right to free speech was violated or it was not.  The fact that you're acknowledging he was paid to deliver a product means your argument is null and void.  When you pay him, you can determine if his product is satisfactory.

And US citizens don't need people from other countries to "discern us."  How silly for you to comment on another population's laws when you don't even have a fundamental understanding of them.

If you want to look on the bright side of this. She could be the candidate that the american people believes has the qualitfications for serious, structural tax code reform. (Ben and Timmay have been begging for it. Obama put Volcker on it)

She can say "When I worked on the tax code, I was going after cheats, now I realize that the code is to complex to catch the cheats and it needs deep structural reform"

And the two party system could "let" her win in 2012 or 2016 so that democrats could blame her for taking away all the well intended incentives for people, but are often abused by rich people or professional gamers. (Like the dude in wisconson, who won the lottery but still collected food stamps, cause the rules said he could. Or companies like G.E. who would say look, we need to save money on taxes so we can pay engineers to figure out how to prevent the next fukishima)

The Dems could also get her to conceed in the same regard that the US should fix obama care in the same way. Norquist let all the pubs out of the "promise" last week when they dumped the ethanol subsidy. For those that don't know, norquist claims to be a "starve the beast" dude, but what he really wants is status quo on all the loopholes in existance, cause they fit (or did fit) his world view and paybacks for his constituants.

I know these parties will do anything to cling onto power, and only want to share it with themselves. But every once in a while they have to do the right thing for the people to keep thier hedgemony, or even the hedge itself in tact.

If she is not going to campaign on tax reform and accomodation of Obama care. Dr. Paul needs to explain why he wants a gold standard, but then lead the people along during the camapign for actual solution which is sound money poilicy, and then tax code will fix itself.

And sure,  4,8,12 years from now all the loop holes and incentive models will creep back in, but you have to renew the foundation every once in a while....

Palin.

Scary to see all those obese goons cheer the Bachman sell-out.  God help America.

That's because the teleprompter said "[look like ventriloquist dummy - now]"...

He has that look down pat... thus the realism factor...

One track minds.

The Dems would have done the same thing to a Bush impersonator.

As soon as the truth is turned in their direction; their ability to withstand it withers.

We have two parties dominated by idealogues that hold fast at conventions but turn to pudding when it matters.

I'll never, ever, forget the bailout vote and watching Republicans become spineless jellyfish.

That was the moment I was done with supporting ANY Republicans, or with any party, or any politician.

Politics is the distraction.

The atmosphere at this convention shows you the polarity that leads to delusion of the followers and their gullibility in believing that politicians will accomplish anything.

This is true of both sides, and it will lead to a collapse of the system entirely.

I can't wait.

I'll say it once (last year before the elections) and I'll say it again now:

"Current politics is best represented by a two headed dragon. Politicians pay lip service to opposing ideologies but both the Republican and Democratic parties are part of the same big government dragon body. The body is moving in one direction; bigger and more powerful government. More control over the electorate. Having the two parties serves a greater purpose though....it divides the populace (sheeple?) into two camps that are always at each others' throat. I think this tactic is called divide and conquer. Until we wake up and get away from the 'Repubs this....' or 'Dems that....' blame game then we will be slowly boiled...just like the frog in the frying pan...all while the dragon stands by watching and laughing."

And .....the sheep continue bleeting.

Michele is a war whore.

Even if you are too lacking in humanity to care about war, you must realize that wars cause fiscal chaos to Uncle Sam's balance sheet.

So she's the bait-and-switch choice for ding-bats.  Yes she talks about fiscal restraint, but only to keep the funds flowing into war related activities, ie. the Zino-Entity.

I like the way he slowly turned the tables.

The brainless ones in the crowd looked so confused, looking to the others for confirmation and reassurance.

Perhaps they should have used more ancient primate techniques to calm their confused grey matter - it seemed for the first time two independent thoughts was flowing through their little heads and the poor dears looked confused and disoriented.

If that's the leadership of the Republican party they are in worse shape than even I think. They need to change the name from tea baggers to pie eaters. What a bunch of over weight old farts. They couldn't lead a bunch of goats. If they weren't so destructive it would be funny. They must have switched the sign for the RLC with the AARP Weight Watchers sign. This is too easy, what a bunch of Mo-Rons. There is no wonder the Republicans are having trouble finding a candiate, no one wants to suck up to a bunch of old fat people, you couldn't keep your breakfast down cause they all smell like cheese.
