NOBODY can call Obie a "n*gger" -- ever

A man who had helped with Obama's campaign used a naughty word after he had been drinking:
"The head of the state firefighters union has resigned over a racist comment he made the day after Barack Obama became the first African-American to be elected president.

The Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin announced the resignation of Rick Gale and said his comment was "offensive, inappropriate and racially insensitive and does not reflect the views or our union."

Gale, who is a lieutenant with the West Allis Fire Department, headed the union for eight years. He admitted in his letter of resignation that he used the "single racially charged word" while watching the TV news as he had drinks with several board members after a meeting. He apologized to the union and the public and said he is resigning from all the boards he served on, including the State of Wisconsin Retirement Board. He was appointed to that board by Governor Jim Doyle, who was an ardent supporter of Obama throughout the presidential race.

Gale had worked on Obama's Wisconsin campaign.

You've got to be on the alert all the time, even when drinking. Even Fascist Italy was more tolerant than that. You could be locked up for criticizing Mussolini but if you criticized him in a bar, you were OK.

Is it offensive to call someone a nigga if they're not? Even blacks are saying Obama is not black, but a half-breed. This news will, no doubt, be very upsetting to his White, Leftist worshipers. Sorry folks. Have another Kool-Aid and get over it.

Here in my part of the South they have been known as high yellow, even by the blacks, for some time.

I was driving home from work about a year ago with all my windows down in the car.. I was in the far left lane about to move into the 2 left turn lanes on a major road way.. I see this older asian lady in the far right of 3 regular lanes of traffic just make a beeline for the left turnings lanes.. So she cuts across 4 lanes and almost runs into me in the fifth.. At the top of my lungs I called her a ni**er.. Since her windows were down too, she had no problem hearing me and the look of total confusion on her face was priceless.. Ever since then I have been calling everybody a racial epitaph of a different race.. In this case though I called her the correct term for a completely ignorant person, which she is..
