This is Trump’s America: A tribal-tatted swole dude yelling “COOK MY BURRITO, BITCH!”

Welcome to Trump's America
This dude has some thoughts he’d like to share with you

Pledge Drive continues! If you enjoy this blog, and can afford it, please click on the “donate” button below and send some bucks my way!  Thanks!

So this was the scene outside a Trump rally in Phoenix Arizona last Saturday: A “tribal”-tatted, Trump-supporting Swole-American yelling “F–KING COOK MY BURRITO, BITCH” at a gentleman he evidently believed to be of Mexican descent.

Some of his other, er, observations:

  • “Get the f–k out of here! Our country, motherf–ker, our country!”
  • “Proud f–king American! Made in USA, bitch, made in f–king USA!”
  • “Build that f–king wall, for me!”
  • “Trump! I love Trump!”

You can watch the whole performance below, in a video that went viral this past week after being posted on Gawker.

If you pause the video 55 seconds in, you can spot a tattooed number “43” under the arm of the muscular fellow, later identified as Zack Fisher;  this just happens to be a favorite symbol of a small but spirited organization called the Supreme White Alliance. You can probably guess what sort of group it is.

Naturally, Fisher has been warmly embraced by some of Trump’s most obnoxiously racist fans.

But before we get to that, let’s hear a bit more from Fisher himself — who explained to The Tab that, why no, he wasn’t a racist at all.

I love all colors. I’m no racist. I am who I am. There’s people out there of all colors that are horrible. Whites, browns, blacks, yellows out there, it doesn’t matter. It’s the color of your heart. …

It sucks that people are scared to stand up for what they believe in, and yet Latinos can do it and it’s fine. And if we do it? We’re racist. White people? The only race you can legally discriminate against.

He apparently spends a lot of time thinking about White Chicks, a Wayans Brothers “comedy” from 2004 in which two of the Wayanses play rogue FBI agents who go undercover as, well, white chicks.

People make movies about us and do we get mad? Like White Chicks? If there was a movie called Black Chicks, it would be a huge race thing. … We couldn’t do that, no way, they’d be like, “this is so racist.” And yet they can make a movie making fun of white people.

And what a widely celebrated film it is! Richard Roeper declared it “the worst movie of the year,” while Roger Ebert informed his readers that “it took an act of the will to keep me in the theater.” It’s got a Rotten Tomatoes score of 13%, ranking it lower than Wild Hogs, The Love Guru, and Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

I just wish people could get over what happened back in the day, to Mexico or Blacks. That was back in the past, people don’t get over it and it sucks. I forgive and forget. A lot of people don’t.

Dude, you haven’t even gotten over “White Chicks!”

Fisher may want to pretend that he’s not racist; many of his new fans don’t bother denying their racism.

Heartiste, the pickup-artist-turned-internet-Nazi, declared Fischer to be the “Sh-tlord Of The Week” for this week, encouraging his readers to adopt Fisher’s catchphrase “GO F–KING COOK MY BURRITO BITCH” as their own.

“If America is to be great/White again,” Heartiste declared,

she’ll need the help of ALL her sh-tlords, from the meme-making pranksters to the theme-cranking intellectuals to the shitlib-shaming musclebros. … it’s all to the Good in the Time of the Trumpening.

Heartiste’s fans were equally enthusiastic

A fellow calling himself Southern WASP happily declared:

It’s happening — the same noble White Man’s spirit that created the United States, as an act of rebellion, is now returning.

 

An older gentleman calling himself ultimathule1 happily explained that the video “just made my day!” It also got him thinking wistfully about growing up in a much whiter America.

I’m 60 years old, so I was 4 years old in 1960 when the U.S. was just a hair under 90% White. That”s the Whitest that it’s ever been, before or since. I have clear, wonderful memories of my childhood in the ’60s, growing up in a Finnish immigrant family with loving Old World parents and surrounded by normal, psychologically-healthy White Americans.

These days, ultimathule1 complained,

We Europeans are being squeezed into impending extinction simultaneously from below and above. Regardless of whether Trump wins or loses, he has unleashed a powerful force – the angry and fed-up White Man who will no longer take his dispossession passively, but who will push back and fight for everything he loves. To quote Steve McNallen, the founder of the Asatru Folk Assembly, “The existence of my people is not negotiable!” Let that be one of our war slogans.

The Asatru Folk Assembly, in case you’re wondering, is a white supremacist Odinist sect.

Captain Obvious suggested that he would soon be personally taking up arms:

Shiznat’s starting to get real. I’ve been thinking a lot about the Ruger Alaskan 2.5″ in 44 magnum – will it fit in the pants pocket of my Dickies work jeans?

In a followup comment, he explained why he needed a gun he could easily conceal:

I live on the outskirts of Sh!tlibistan. Folks here would totally phreak out if they saw open carry. … we have a metric sh-t-ton of nogs & muds & mystery meats & other troublemakers in the immediate vicinity [and we’ve even had mohammedan events]. So I need something with stopping power [for large nogs & mohammedans & sh!tlib pitbulls & whatnot] which doesn’t bulge too much.

Fisher, too, has evidently taken up arms, telling The Tab that since the video of him went viral he’s been carrying a “gun, with a bullet in the chamber. And that’s fine, I carry a gun with me everywhere and always.”

At the same Trump rally, an apparent friend of Fisher showed up in a “F–K Islam” t-shirt; after being escorted from the event, apparently by Trump’s security detail, he strapped on a gun and gave this interview to Eric Rosenwald, who also shot the video of Fisher.

Not all Trump supporters have picked up guns. Some, like the gleefully grinning young man in this earlier video by Rosenwald, prefer pepper spray.

This is what Trump has wrought.

‘natural law’ actually goes all the way back to the Ancient Greeks, although obviously its specific content has changed.

True, but the political philosophy used by present-day libertarians lies on a line that runs from Locke directly through Ayn Rand. It’s Locke’s particular ideas about property (which he partially cribbed from others, but upon which he put his own spin) that Perry is almost quoting there. It’s probably because Rand was strongly influenced, whether she realized it or not, by Lockean ideas, and Atlas Shrugged is like the Bible to these folks.

Like Locke and Rand, Perry has some ideas about property that sort-of work in the abstract but which fall apart when applied to reality. Locke’s philosophy about property presumed limitless resources, and Rand took that to a bizarre extreme by making Galt’s Gulch stupidly rich in natural resources. Perry wants people to live in total independence from others, but that requires a lot more land per person than a lot of folks realize, and the Earth is finite. There just literally isn’t enough land on Earth for everyone to have ~20 acres or more (depending on climate). Quality of life is also limited when you have to source your entire lifestyle from your personal plot of land, because you can’t rely on someone else being willing to rent you the use of a road to get to/from a market at a reasonable rate than you can afford to pay. And how do you guarantee that your access to water will never be threatened by other people’s use of the same water resource that you are using?

But, of course, the question that made him go ballistic didn’t even address that, but rather who would keep Perry’s neighbor from forcibly evicting him from his property if government had no greater power over the neighbor than it has over Perry himself. Locke actually did have an answer to this (government should have power to enforce laws, natural and otherwise), whereas Rand just thought that it would somehow work itself out because capitalists universally behave in a perfectly moral way (but only with other capitalists; it’s perfectly moral to throw a government worker down the stairs or purposefully engineer a disaster that will kill millions of non-capitalists). The answer that Perry sort of groped toward was the Rand version, the one that makes no sense whatsoever.

@PoM – no argument from me there; I’m in complete agreement with every point you made re Locke, Rand, etc. 🙂
My comment was only in reply to epitome of incomprehensibility – I hadn’t even seen the clip with Perry at that point. I was making a general statement about the history of ‘natural law’ as a concept.

We had a ‘Natural Law Party’ over here in the 90s. They actually contested just about every seat in the 92 election. Unfortunately none of them got elected though so we never found out if yogic flying would sort out all the UK’s problems.

(Compared to the current debacle that’s going on with our political parties this morning, they don’t seem so daft now)

I was asked to stand twice for Labour on the local council, the first time in 2007 just after I left university in Chichester, the second a few years ago on the Isle of Wight. Both times I have refused, and I still would not do it. Both these constituencies are on the ‘wealthy’ south coast and are Tory strongholds. I know a lot of my mum’s friends are Tory voters despite being dispossessed and retired benefit receivers, but they choose Tory for the Queen and religion. A lot of them are strong Ukippers as well. I did not vote Labour in the general election, which was a mistake I regret now, we should have shown more solidarity and not split up the left vote. I voted Green as they were more in line with my beliefs. Labour is still too Blairite, tho I hope this changed soon with Corbin. I would vote Natural Law if they were to stand, they are as much of a laughing stock as myself and my comrades are!

Lol Tumblr? I give it 5 minutes before you are accused of trying to spread colonialism and patriarchy by some gendervoid demiqueer foxkin ?

So, just to summarize, Strykr5 is opposed to the word mansplaining because he “[doesn’t] like using gendered terms much like most people in civil society,” but he also thinks it’s cool to mock people specifically for having certain genders. That about figures.

The whole “Remove Kebab” thing is a nauseating reference, right up there with all the other terrible neo-nazi racist garbage. It’s a reference to the ethnic cleansing of the Bosnian Turks in Serbia, specifically, and has been expanded to include the genocide of Islamic adherents. It’s a line in an amateur music video made by three Serbian border guards, called “Serbia Strong”.

The last multiplayer online game I was involved with, I was part of a group that was generally pretty cheerful and fun but had a lot of drama and some very sexist/racist undertones. They started using the reference for – well, for pretty much anyone the group was fighting against.

When I figured out what they were talking about, I decided that I’d had enough of the online gaming community. Haven’t looked back.

tim gueguen:

I have my suspicion that in 1960 there were probably Americans who didn’t think Finns were in fact properly white. ultimathule’s supposed Finnish immigrant parents at the very least probably had problems at some point because they had accents, and hence didn’t sound sufficiently American enough.

When Finnish immigration to US started in the late 19th century, Finns were considered second class whites at best and outright savages at worst. Ultimathule was apparently born around 1956, when most of that prejudice had already passed.

As Monzach noted, it’s ironic that Finnish neonazis tend to go along with Germanic neopaganism that’s so popular in international white supremacist circles. Traditionally, Finnish nationalism is all about being different from Scandinavia/Sweden.

Nailed it.

@Valentine, Jack and kupo

Incidentally, tonight I had homemade kebab made with baguette, with a variant of bisque with morroccan spices on the side. My 4 year old niece (of “mixed race”) helped make it, yelling “YAAAAAY” all the way.

They probably wanna nuke this house right now, but well, fuck ’em, dinner was awesome.

@Sinkable John

Mmmm, bisque.

I really don’t see where all the hostility is coming from. I just said that I don’t like using gendered terms much like most people in civil society.

You’re awfully delicate and fragile aren’t you? I went back and reread my comment and it wasn’t particularly hostile. I explained to you the purpose of the term. That’s all.

I’m also not sure what you mean by saying most people don’t like gendered terms.

I’m so sorry you thought your apologia for Notch’s sexist asshole behavior would actually go over well. Maybe next time you’ll not try it on a site devoted to mocking misogyny.

In my experience anarchists are generally informally collective. I’ve worked with several anarchist groups and they all had a similar consensus decisionmaking process–and honestly the best-run events I’ve ever attended or helped out at were hosted by anarchists; everyone takes responsibility, knows what he/she is doing, shows initiative, and is strongly motivated to make things run well and efficiently. Although they have fewer/no illusions about what people are like, they do cooperate well, for two reasons–first the anarchists I know communicate in a very sophisticated way; they can clearly and effectively express their needs, come to agreement, ameliorate dissent, and acknowledge and channel emotions. And second, to be fair, the groups are pretty homogeneous; they tend to come from similar backgrounds, classes, demographics and regions. (I remember years ago hearing a research seminar about the inverse relationship between group homogeneity and ability to come to consensus–progressives value both diversity and cooperation, but one tends to retard the other).

Libertarians, as far as I can tell, just have a hard time accepting that humans are dependent and interdependent. I just this morning listened to the Perry interview–I agree, libertarian comedy gold :)–and the question I wanted Sam to ask was ‘OK, everyone agrees you own your land, you can proudly sit on your hill and not be beholden to anyone…then what happens? Are you really content to live entirely on and with what you yourself can produce from your land?’ They might argue no, I’ll sell the products of my labour…but then we get into another whole set of regulatory issues I’m willing to bet libertarians would really prefer not to discuss. What’s a ‘fair’ return for your labour? What if you don’t have anything to offer that someone else wants? What if there’s a huge oversupply of egotistical software geeks and no actual computers in the libertarian paradise? How can you pay someone to teach you a skill you can sell?

Just putting my hand up as another libsoc and also someone who’s been majorly into anarcho-punk over the years. Crass, Conflict, Poison Girls… not all of that music has aged well, but some of it really holds up. Also, all this food talk’s inspired me to look up some new lunch places – might grab a veggie gözleme… (Also also, I hear Stardew Valley is excellent, but I have a glut of good games at the moment, so I’ve been putting off picking it up.)

@Dalillama, @Mish, @PoM – Thanks for the insights into the term “natural law” and ideas of property ownership.

@Alan – But levitation’s against the law of gravity! Not allowed. 😛

I have no idea why you’re being so fucking hostile to me. What exactly brought this on?

I was?

@Alan

We had a ‘Natural Law Party’ over here in the 90s.

The States are infested with those; every last one based principally on homophobia, with a side of transphobia and sprinkles of every other bigotry under the sun. They tend to be theocrats of a sort that would make Daesh blush.

@Virgin Mary

I know a lot of my mum’s friends are Tory voters despite being dispossessed and retired benefit receivers, but they choose Tory for the Queen and religion.

There’s a bit of historical irony for you, Tories having gotten their name from supporting a Catholic for the throne.

@Guest

I’ve worked with several anarchist groups and they all had a similar consensus decisionmaking process–

C.T. Butler and Amy Rothstein codified the process in 1987; you can find it here. (Both of them are also really excellent people).
