On Monday the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals handed down a decision upholding the injunction against President Trump’s Islamophobic travel ban — the second appeals court to have done so. And, unlike the Fourth Circuit’s more sweeping decision regarding the ban’s discriminatory intent, the Ninth Circuit made its decision on the far more narrow ground that it ran afoul of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
And commenters on the far-right Breitbart website reacted by (predictably) attacking the last President, because really why not? One likened former President Obama to a “king” and another blasted this and previous rulings as “stupidly stupid”:
And it just went downhill from there, as one commenter revived the racist Birther conspiracy and another called Obama a “simian”:
And it further spiraled out of control when a liberal commenter (yes, they’re rare but they exist) called out the pack of right-wing hyenas. One commenter, Skywolf, called her a “bag of wind moron” and boasted that he has a “master’s degree and a very successful career” — which I totally believe:
Oh, and his “cock is rather large,” which is even more believable:
Odds just increased that Skywolf is a broke neckbeard:
And for some reason Jo thought Dodd-Frank — passed in 2010 — caused the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis:
But that’s not what you’re all here for, is it? Back to the racism:
Kerygma, who claims to be “Hispanic, Latino, Mexican, 2nd generation American,” referred to Obama as a “failed gay Super Negro” and called Section 8 housing a form of “economic slavery”:
frankjohnson221 pulled the old “Obama’s half-white so I’m totally not racist” card:
And now let’s segue back to the Birther and eugenicist bullshit:
And a handful of idiots who understand neither the recent court decisions nor the Islamic faith:
I get the feeling I know what “88” references here:
And Moa claims that Islam doesn’t qualify as a religion because, he says, it isn’t one “in the Western sense” and, thus, doesn’t qualify for First Amendment protections. This is utter horseshit and would get one precisely nowhere in court. All manner of beliefs are protected by the First Amendment — hell, even atheism is protected, and that’s damn sure not a religion in any sense. Just check out this Defense Department list of recognized religions.
And ‘ole Harry Hotter claims that non-white immigrants have caused rapes and “gangrapes [sic] with extreme violence” have risen by 1000%:
