Did I Just Say That Out Loud?


I totally lifted that title from David Safier’s post at The Range, Does John Huppenthal Write Blog Comments As Thucydides and Falcon9? David is a former BfAZ writer and still close friend of the blog. Plesae click through to read his whole post.

David’s point was that if the whole Thucky/Falcon9/Huppenthal saga were a sitcom, Superintendent Thuckenhal’s next line would be “Did I just say that out loud?”

To be sure, there are many “Did I just say that out loud” comments from our friend. Here’s one of my favorites, made to a Craig McDermott post last year, The 2014 Republican Dream Team is Assembling…:

As for Huppenthal hating public education and hispanics, that’s not going to wash. Huppenthal grew up in south Tucson, all of his friends were Hispanics. He was the only Caucasian in his social group. Jimmy Ortega, Manny Gonzales, Luis Rodriguez, Charlie Praciado, Marcelino Lucero. Just because he won’t support the “we hate Whitey” curriculum of extreme Chicano activists doesn’t mean he can’t do well among Hispanics.

Here, in one tidy paragraph, you have (1) Huppenthal’s trademark sock puppetry; (2) the cluelessness of Thucky referring back to details of Huppenthal’s childhood when he’s pretending not to be Huppenthal; (3) the old “I’m not racist, some of my best friends are ____” line, which tells everyone you are indeed a racist, and (4) the somewhat newer “they are reverse racists” (i.e, “we hate Whitey”) line, which removes any remaining doubt you are a racist.

What an amazing lack of self-awareness. It’s awesome.

  1. Why you be gettin’ all Huppenthal his business? Lot’s of great people speak of themselves in the third person. Ted J Crews, for instance, is also not a racist because he too has many friends of color. Ted Crews is also sick of Whitey. Wait, maybe he is pro-Whitey and anti-anti-Whitey. You damn Libs with your intelligence and big words and science and facts… You think just because you’re right on everything that matters that business and the rich should suffer as a result. When Jesus wrote the 2nd Amendment he made it pretty clear that he meant white males. And Common Core science is the devil’s work. When man discovered the first surface coal mine, as he rode atop a dinosaur, near the edge of the earth, 6000 years ago, right after the earth was created on the 7th day, it was just as clear then, as it is now, that all kids need to learn in school is to hate the poor, distrust immigrants, fight the gay agenda and protect tax breaks for the uber wealthy. Now I lost track of what I was saying. Thanks Obama!
