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.

Maybe I’m just a little too angry coming off of this post, but…

Fuck notch. Absolutely FUCK THAT FUCKING ASSHOLE. He’s everything that I despise about techbro nerd culture–self-centered garbage heap who whines about how much he was bullied and then BECAME a fucking bully in response.

He deserves every bit of loneliness and misery that he clearly brings on himself. I don’t get where his narcissism comes from, anyway. He made one game that was modeled after someone else’s game, talked himself up right and left for not selling out, sold out anyway, and hasn’t done shit with his life since except apparently party like the frat boys he’s obviously always had a jealous hard-on for.

Just such a gross, horrible person who somehow imagines himself a tragic hero. Not enough vomit in the world.

I followed that lady, and I’m sending her a DM of support. Fuck notch.

Oh, old friend. You were not missed. I’m just going to steal a Louis CK joke real quick.

“White people wish that black people would just forget… everything that ever happened to anyone. They’re like, ‘Come ooooooonnnnn.'”

What impresses(?) me the most with this guy is that he doesn’t take it in the direction I’m used to. I’m used to “this (usually slavery) didn’t directly to you, so you can’t complain about it because there are no negative aftereffects.” This is “yeah, lots of bad shit keeps happening to you, but you should just not care,” which I think is worse. So that’s different in that it’s much more stupid.

What’s hilarious to me is that white people keep bringing up slavery, like that’s all black people got to be angry about, as if white people hadn’t behaved in a shitty manner towards us since that time, by killing us, raping us , and burning down whole cities of black folk.

No, black people, the indigenous peoples, and Hispanics are mad about 100 years of lynching, followed by the fifty more years of institutional exclusion, general shitty behavior, and all of the hundreds and hundreds of deaths.

We mad about shit people did a year ago, six months, or Hell, just last week, when some Senator put up billboards glorifying the fifties, that said Make America White Again. Oh, the irony! We got more than just land theft and slavery to be mad about.

Of course people like that glorify the fifties. That was the last time they could push all their sins they were committing off on everybody not white. But now the rest of us refuse to carry their sins and keep handing them back to them. (We keep talking back to em, not respecting them and getting uppity. We gotta clapback for everything they say. ) They gotta carry that shit themselves. Some white people cannot handle that. The sheer weight of atrocity sitting on their backs, is enough to drive a person mad, especially those operating under the delusion that they’re good people. They’ve been told their whole lives, what special, snowflake, cinnamon buns they are, and In their minds they can’t be good with that amount of history sitting on top of them. One of those beliefs has to go, and so they really do wish we’d forget about it.

It’s like that narcissist you finally have that fight with, where they want you to just forget about ALL the tons of awful shit they did to you, and trust them again, but you keep bringing they shit up to bolster your argument about why they were never your friend, and now they mad, cuz you ain’t cooperating with them.

“Hey!Quit bringing up the shit I did, and just let me hurt you some more!”

Though most of these “STEM” bros either don’t have a STEM education beyond sophomore level courses in college or they got their degrees (or did one major project) and then quit STEM. Being successful in a STEM career depends on good written and oral communication skills and reading skills just as much as it depends on knowing your field well. You also need to be able to get along well with different types of people.

I just took my boyfriend out for his birthday at a neighborhood Ethiopian restaurant.

As usual, I got the vegetarian combo. Yum.

We’ve had the same Ethiopian server there for years now. She asked me how I was and I said that my boyfriend was celebrating his birthday (June 24). No way! She has the same birthday. So they bonded over being summer babies.

Ooh! Ethiopian food is yummy!

People in the Twin Cities complain about how many East African immigrants have come here in the past couple of decades, but I don’t see what the problem is if it means there is Ethiopian food to be eaten.

I seriously think the availability of good food is a workable pro-immigration argument to give to people who are on the fence. If I was to introduce a new Minneapolis resident to the local cuisine, I would probably take them to a Vietnamese place because thanks to the large Hmong-American population we have lots of Vietnamese food here. Meanwhile I’ve never even tried lutefisk despite being part Norwegian and Swedish and MN supposedly being a place where people eat lutefisk. Does anyone really want to go back to the restaurant options of the 1950s?

It may or may not be incredibly obvious that I’m drunk posting right now.

Bill Cunningham, legendary photographer of New York City street fashion and charity events, has died at 87.

Bill Cunningham Thought Every New Yorker Was Worth Photographing

Cunningham lived a hyper-ascetic existence. He famously wouldn’t take so much as a glass of water from event hosts for fear of seemingly unduly influenced. He was content living an apartment with little more than a bed and a file cabinet, eating at Chock Full o’ Nuts and sporting a bright blue French street-cleaner’s jacket as his uniform. . . .

Cunningham’s detachment from the elites helped him connect to the part of fashion where the real energy was contained: young people, eccentric outliers, and the denizens of the street.

The ad exec Ronnie Newhouse, once his fellow editor at Details, told the New York Times . . . “[W]e’d be at a show, and I’d say, ‘Bill, it’s really hard to see from the last row.’ He’d say, ‘All the people who tell the truth are in the last rows.”’

Pfft.

I remember 1960 white America too. Lots of problems. Lots of problems.

Battered children.

Battered wives.

Minorities (people of color, Jews, and Catholics) treated as second-class citizens.

Air pollution.

Big business ruled.

Addiction to alcohol.

Addiction to cigarettes.

That’s what I saw with my own eyes, not what I read in the newspaper.

There was plenty of good in the USA of 1960. But I can’t forget the bad. I’m so happy about the strides we’ve made. Can’t stop now!

History has always been a favorite area to read about and study for me. I even delve into war/conflict history, despite how sad it makes me feel, because in my perspective it’s a way to remind myself that bad things have/continue to happen and I don’t want to be a part of such evil.

Life is hard, even if you’re an angry roidy white dude – member of a group who historically has had the least hard life ever in the written history of humans – its what you do and how you treat others in spite of hardship that is important. Yelling at someone to ‘cook your burrito’ will NEVER be written in history as the kind of thing a hero worth admiration was known to say. The crap that some of our white American leaders/military commanders were on record as having said is pretty awful on its own, regardless of any b.s. hand-waving about ‘being of a different era’ – those men will have to stand before whatever god/spiritual force they believe(d) in and account for all they did and said just like the rest of us will. There have been evil women throughout history as well, unfortunately there has been a lot less documentation about them to preserve a record of their misdeeds for future generations. Humans are a mixed bag of bad and good, well, unless viewed from the perspective of animals.

@ryeash,

I was super into Minecraft for a long time, including moderating a decently big server, and I still intend to get back to it some day. I was supremely bummed to find out Notch was, well, the way that he is… but I guess I’m also pretty used to a lot of successful people in games, film, music, etc. turning out to be slimy jerks. He’s just another one to add to the pile.

I’ve also never really bought the, “They did something cool, therefore they must be a cool person” hype, so it’s not like I lost a hero or anything. Minecraft has always pretty much just been social virtual LEGO to me, so aside from avoiding Notch & his followers on Twitter, I guess it feels like nothing much has changed.

Far more significant people to my life have turned out to be far worse scumbags, so it feels like this one didn’t faze me much.

@Axe, thanks for posting that link about Jennifer Scheurle. I’ve admired her for some time, and it was nice to be able to do a tiny wee thing to help.
Your “yay slacktivism” made me smile, too. I’m giving a conference paper this week about social media & feminist activism in Australia, so such terms are at the forefront of my mind. There’s an ongoing debate around whether social media engagement constitutes activism in the material sense, and also how important (or not) cultural politics should be to feminism at present. Fascinatin’ stuff 🙂

As for Notch, yep, agree with everyone above. I used to play Minecraft with my son a LOT and Notch was basically a god back then. I asked him (my son, that is, not Notch) what he and his friends thought about GG: “ugh! bunch of idiots. Not interested in that shit.”

WeirdWEIRDg, but does it not seem a bit patronising to say ‘oh I don’t mind immigration because they bring good food’s. Cos seem to me that’s what it saying here.
I mean…

Fuck the food. Fuck anything about the people whether they are good bad beautiful ugly or whatever. If people want to live in my country then good. I want to live in my country as well so I think they’ve made a good choice.

Like to say ‘oh it’s okay I like Chinese food therefore I like Chinese immigrants’ really makes me crunch. No one says to me ‘oh Kaminskyy? And you’re living in England now? That’s great cos I love shashlik and borsh!’ fuck if someone said that to me I’d want them to leave me the fuck alone if anything.

You don’t need to justify yourself for not hating immigrants for fucks sake. Especially with such silly reasons about eating and liking the food. Guess what you can not like foreign food or food from other countries and still be a good, non racists person. -_-

@Kat – Heck yes. Being a “psychologically healthy white” in the 60s and 70s meant you did not talk about, or associate with, people of a different color, let alone acknowledge the problems of segregation and Jim Crow. Homosexuality was something from a different planet altogether. Domestic abuse was quietly accepted. No one questioned the wisdom of big business, the military, or the government. It was the era of “better living through chemistry” – saccharine, thalidomide, DDT. Communists were hiding under every bed.

ultimathule1’s “psychologically healthy” childhood came at the expense of the psychological health of everyone that wasn’t white, male, straight, and Christian. The rest of the country was expected to defer to their happiness by remaining largely invisible and voiceless. Where the two came into conflict, the rest of us were expected to step aside and sacrifice our dignity. That’s an enormous price to pay.

These guys are so fragile. When they’ve been told all their lives that they’re the most important humans by virtue of characteristics they had nothing to do with, it’s not surprising they have egos of the finest spun glass, and that their first instinct is to pitch a violent tantrum. They’ve never been told “no”. Now we have a legion of angry Dudley Dursleys with guns. Thanks, NRA.

I don’t think WWTH implied that at all. I’m not sure where all this anger is coming from. She didn’t say it was justification for being pro-immigration. She just said it’s another positive thing that immigration brings to an area. Food is a big part of culture, too, and being able to experience the food let’s you experience a small piece of a culture.

Understandable. I’m bad at compartmentalizing, so I’d probably go Steampunked’s route. I’ve been having a crisis over Breath of the Wild after Aonuma said that there would never be a female PC because too many wimminz might destroy the Triforce or whatever bullshit, and I’ve been waiting for that game for years. Legend of Zelda is my favorite series; that kinda broke my heart.

I don’t expect the creators of things I love to be pillars of society or anything–it’s just nice when they’re not complete dumpster fires, and it sticks in my mind too much to enjoy what they created when they are.

@Axecalibur

ConcernedApe already got my hopes up by calling someone out for demanding that he make same-sex marriage a toggle option in the game for people who objected to it. As in rather than just not getting into a same-sex relationship, you could make it impossible to get into one at all. He’d made it a point to address same-sex marriage in an FAQ before the release, because the Harvest Moon series only allowed hetero romances. I thought that was cool.

@Kat I guess all these racists crawly from the wood work are making people surprised that being a ‘shitweasel’ isn’t normal XD

@kupo
I’m not angry I just swear. And it wasn’t the last point really. Just the first part. I know in England lots of people like curry right and therefore Indian and Pakistani immigrants are more accepted as British. What I mean is when there is discussion like this one I see many people suddenly have to give a small story of niceness to make sure they are not seen like the others. It seems force and awkward to me. At least here on WHTM we can say safe that we’re probably not like the ‘shitweasel’.

Also I know food is a big part of culture but there is a habit that immigrants are reduced to their food as a go to ‘this is what’s good about so and so’. As if there is no variation. What if I am Chinese migrant who prefers roast beef and doesn’t like Spidey food? And then all the praise I hear About my country fellows immigrants is all about ‘how yummy’ Chinese food is?

If you are not picky good food from any country will satisfy. I cannot say I dislike many things. Accept beetroot.

No one wins a medal of tolerance for liking food from around the world. And no one is immediately intolerant just cos they prefer their chicken plain and their potato boil.

Food is a big part of culture because when traveling it is easy to take with you. You carry recipe in your head. Same way the Jews carry the melodies of klezmer or a Muslim carries their religion with you. Things like this survive the trip but then define the person. No one is asking you to like the food and no one is upset you don’t like it – not if you treat them with respect.

*gasp!* That’s what I was playing before I bought Stardew too! I was on the fence about picking it up at first, because I was finally making progress in Story of Seasons–and frankly, the faux 16-bit nostalgia games are getting old–but that FAQ and the $14.99 price swayed me. If you were wishing SoS had shaken up the old Harvest Moon formula more than just throwing in a bunch of extra items, I would definitely give Stardew a shot.

I’m glad I got it now for sure, because my 3DS with Story of Seasons in it was stolen. I’d finally gotten a good routine down, too 🙁 It was hard to get used to all the rental fields. I forgot about the spice one for a whole season.

Notch sics harassment mobs on people he disagrees with. That ‘splaining “disagreement” happened weeks ago, and the woman on the other end is still dealing with the fallout. Fuck that. Fuck Notch. Fuck his sympathizers.

And whether or not you like the term ‘mansplain’, it’s a thing that happens. Call it what you’d like, but it’s as supremely irritating as your tired “women are jerks too!” rebuttal. Just because it happens the other way around sometimes doesn’t mean it isn’t predominantly a problem women face and one that comes with real-world consequences, such as not having our experiences or knowledge taken seriously.

Here’s the thing. It literally doesn’t matter what you dislike. Seriously. It ain’t about that. He didn’t respond with ‘womansplaining’ (an issue of its own, but whatever). He said “c**tfusing”. Why? If he wanted to employ an equal and opposite term, he woulda used the former. But he didn’t. Why? Not rhetorical, BTW. Why?

I remember a while back, some Bernie supporters were asked to describe Hillary Clinton in 1 word. Ignoring the fact that some people used multiple words (*eyeroll*), quite a few of them used pointedly sexist language. Why? There were people in the comment section of the video saying it was OK, cos Hillary is bad, yadda, yadda. ‘She’s a shill and a warmonger! This has nothing to do with sexism,’ someone typed, presumably with a straight face. Really? Nothing? Why, when given “Hillary” as a prompt and few seconds of time, is w***e the 1st word out of a disturbing number of people’s mouths? ‘Lefties’ even

Whether or not mansplaining is an appropriate word is irrelevant. Why does someone, while decrying sexism (perceived sexism anyway) call a woman a c**t? Why is that word on your keyboard fingers? Again, not rhetorical. There’s more to the story of Notch, but I think this is an important ‘case 0’ to look at. If I’m arguing with any disenfranchized group and use a slur at them, one has to wonder why I’ve chosen this argument and what I want from it

Am I making sense?

This isn’t the first sexist thing Notch has done.

Tl;dr version: we can’t have wimmens in minecraft because blocks can’t be curvy!

I’m not going to get into the whole splaining argument right now. Instead, I advise you to read up on it before you dismiss it.

I am now officially embarrassed to be white. Jesus that guy was cringeworthy to watch.

Ugh…the crop leveling. And of course, fertilizer has to be super hard to come by. I understood certain items being limited in the shops, but not fertilizer. And there just wasn’t enough time in the day to be running around collecting weeds and twigs. There wasn’t enough time in the day, period. Why add all that content and then penalize players for not going to sleep early enough?

At least that part wasn’t as bad as in New Beginning. It was great that you could fully customize the town and expand and all, but it eventually wasn’t even possible to navigate the whole map in a day.

When I think of all the weeds and twigs I sold or destroyed to make room before I knew they could be turned into fertilizer…sigh. Anyway, Stardew Valley will begin downloading soon. 🙂

That seems more like a disagreement than anything. Personally, I dislike using gendered terms that have negative connotations like “mansplaining” as well. Makes it seem like rude behavior is something only men do.

If you don’t like using them, don’t use them. And don’t police the terms other people use, because it expresses the simple fact that ‘splaining is different when men and whites do it versus non-men and non-white people.

Nobody is asking you to like it, but you can just sit on your dislike and be quiet about it.
