Howard Stern Interviews Obama Supporters 2012

Ian Schwartz, Real Clear Politics, September 24, 2012

Howard Stern contributors Sal and Richard travel to Harlem to interview Obama supporters and ask them why they are voting for Obama.

Stern and his crew ask denizens of Harlem various outrageous questions, including if they believe Obama will find and kill Osama bin Laden; if Romney is a Muslim and if Obama is a Mormon; if Obama made the right choice by picking Paul Ryan as his running mate and if he did it because he is black.

    Proof positive we have lost our Republic.

    • Ask white women about politics and you’ll get answers that make black Harlem druggies look like Edmund Burke!!

    •  Proof positive they never had a mind!

    • ed91

       proof positive blacks don’t deserve to live/work in a white civilization.

  • The__Bobster

    This is why voting tests should be brought back for the Bantus. Most are too stupid to cast an informed vote, yet they vote anyway.

    • Only property owners should be allowed to vote, just like the Founding Fathers intended.

      • The__Bobster

        Ah, even better.

        BTW, if you owned a Congoid (something I would not recommend), would that make you a property owner? 

        • The Worlds Scapegoat

           No, that would be a weapon of mass destruction, or at least a destructive device and subject to a $200 tax stamp from the BATF.

      • Bad_Mr_Frosty

        Owning property isn’t really what it used to be. I’d say you can vote if you’ve paid taxes for at least 5 years. So if you start working at 16, you can vote by 21. If you go on any public assistance, you lose the right to vote until the next time you file a tax return.

      • elitist

         Great idea!

        Then intellectuals like me with my ivy league phds who spend lifetimes studying and reflecting would be disenfranchised in favor of someone with an IQ around 67 who buys a dilapidated shack in Detroit for $450 in cash!

        • Puggg

          Property ownership is impossible for a lot of people in big expensive cities.  A good work around is to use net tax contributor as a prerequisite for voting.

        • Indiana Guy

          not really, that person would not live long enough to vote.

      • NorthernWind

        I can support that motion; reducing voting rights back to who the Founding Fathers intended. Yes, that does include women’s suffrage. In fact, such a measure would deny ME the right to vote… assuming that I was an American citizen, because I do not own property.

        I know that this position is contentious but I really do not think that women should vote. Many share conservative (paleoconservative) views but on the whole they are too easily manipulated my emotional appeals. I’d bet my legs on the idea that had women never obtained the right to vote we never would have received multiculturalism or massive immigration or the end of the death penalty in many states.

        Now let me be clear, I do not blame women for multiculturalism or whatever else. They have been manipulated. The greatest strength of women, their tenderness, softness in speech, caring disposition, greater ability to empathize with people, and many more great strengths have been capitalized upon by our enemies. When women gained suffrage suddenly politicians had to take into account their nature. For example, showing an advertisement of Blacks suffering under segregation affects women more than men. Politicians must now consider these things when promoting a platform or risk losing the election. Suddenly national strength and integrity is harder to maintain because women do not really value the militarism or immigration policies which explicitly reject people based on race. They would have a harder time than men in sending an asylum seeker back to their country (where they might be killed or even tortured) than men would. They have a harder time seeing a criminal hang even knowing that they committed a terrible crime (unless that crime affected them personally).

        It’s perfectly natural as biology has made us this way. Men are colder and stern towards outsiders since they are those who traditionally had to deal with such people. Women dealt with things back home. They raised children and where the fabric that made family and community life possible (which might be why more women support socialist ideals). Men worked to ensure that they could provide for their family and community and they fought threats to the community, dealt with foreign relations, negotiated treaties.

        Clearly I cannot layout my whole argument in an article comment but I hope that the gist of my point is apparent to some. We understand that lots of “progressive” changes have been bad but many don’t realize how far back our problem goes. It did not start in the 1950-1960’s, it started long ago perhaps as far back as the French Revolution.

        • schmenz

           Eloquently stated, NorthernWind.

        • Indiana Guy

          I agree wholeheartedly!!!!If women were never given the right to vote then abortion wold still be legal.

        • Persephone Gray

          You have my complete agreement. I am a woman, and I believe in the equal worth of men and women, but I do not believe in their equivalence. Male and female have their respective roles in life, and ought to be in natural, harmonious relationship rather than competing in the same arena at each other’s throats. I have always said that governance is best left to men, while the running of the home is best left to women. In a traditional marriage, a decent husband discusses his views with his wife, and considers her opinions when making his own decision. In this way, women have always been able to express themselves and offer their husbands guidance and insight, while their husbands remained responsible for action in the public sphere.

      • sarah stein

         I work all over the United States and at times out of the country.  My employer pays for my temporary housing.  I don’t think I should be penalized for not purchasing something that I have no need for.

        • Indiana Guy

          your a female, you wont be allowed to vote on that basis alone so fuhgeddboudit

      • Indiana Guy

        only MALE property owners. Liberalism would disappear tomorrow if women were not allowed to vote. Please don’t tell me there are conservative women. The facts are that without the female vote, the country would never have become the way it has. There are conservative male voters too, the facts are that the majority of white males are conservative yet the majority of white females vote liberal.

  • jedsrael

    Only a racist would post this stereotypical National Geographic style African cultural safari ebonicized racial insensitivity.

    • blight14

       Stern is ‘special’, he’s immune to the usual labels……….

    • Indiana Guy

      did you run out of adjectives?

  • Nomesayin’?

  • Defiant White

    I suppose that as a jew, Stern gets a pass for pointing out the ignorance and stupidity of what’s populating New York City.  Of course, if I were to go to a Hassidic neighborhood, I’d probably get the same answers because they’re stuck in the Middle Ages.

    Nowhere else in the world can you travel from “Israel” to the “Congo” by bus.  NYC is the crowning achievement of multiculturalism.  We should build a wall around it and sell tickets.

    • Howard Stern is NOT a true Jew, because his mother is not a Jew, but Italian. His father Ben was a Jew.

      Jewish law says that if the mother is Jewish, ALL her children are automatically Jewish as well -irrespective of the father’s race or ethnicity. The father could be Japanese, Sudanese, Chinese or a Romanian magyar – it makes no difference.

      • Persephone Gray

        Genes are genes, it doesn’t matter which side they come from.

        If not, his acting skills are exemplary…….

        • The Worlds Scapegoat

          Actually they are terrible. He would fit right in on the Seinfeld show. 

          • blight14

             Meant that if Stern ISN’T of the Tribe he’s a very good actor…..he fits all of the stereotypes…..

    • blight14

       WELL stated! Thank you for the fantastic idea……I agree 100%…..

    • Indiana Guy

      Uh, you are absolutely wrong there. I am not a member of that community but I do business with them. They are as sharp as a tack. They are well aware of current events EXCEPT when it come to entertainment trivia.Most of them have computers and are on the internet. They do not watch TV. They do watch some DVD’s depending on the family. You’d be surprised at how sweet and innocent the children are. You’d also be surprised at how nice the people who are in the strange garb are. They are not hostile to outsiders unless outsiders are hostile to them or are openly flaunting immodest or immoral behavior. You should not let appearances deceive you.

  • Persephone Gray

    Funny, I’ve listened to it three times but all I can hear is the sound of a toilet flushing.

    • RisingReich

       Be careful with that ‘flushing’ stuff.  Someone might deem you to be insinuating something uncivil, and ‘flush’ your post.

      • Persephone Gray

        Ah, yes, God forbid that I should be uncivil… thank you for the reminder, Comrade. 😉

  • IstvanIN

    Universal suffrage is the worst thing that can happen to a democracy.  Or a republic.  Or a constitutional monarchy.  Or a dictatorship for that matter.

    •  Just what is the perfect political system? Democracy only seems to lead to a slow, protracted decline.

      Recently, C-SPAN aired a black forum on voter suppression and disenfranchisement. One of the black panelist said we should vote like they now do in South Africa. Everyone and anyone should just walk into the voting booth without providing identification of any kind.

      Another black female panelist reminded the group of an alleged African proverb: that enough ants can take down an elephant.

      That, of course, is their goal. 

      • IstvanIN

         Actually our original republic was a pretty darn good idea, with its balance of powers.  Unfortunately the courts have gained too much power, especially in terms of redefining the constitution.  Our politicians are too cowardly to stand up to the courts. Andrew Jackson once asked how the Supreme Court could enforce its rulings.

        A constitutional monarchy could be just as effective as long as neither monarch nor politicians gain the upper hand.

        Any system requires a nation with a single, or at the very least an overwhelming majority, people united by race, culture, religion and language, in order to function in the long run.  Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa are doomed because they are artificial countries.  Our 90% founding British stock were a single people.  Today’s multicultural America is an artificial construct.

  • nymphas

    Solutions that are easy:

    1.  Forced Emasculation of all undesierables (obviously very difficult indeed).
    2.  Forced Deportation of all illegal residents, racebaiters, and sociolists (this can and should happen).
    3.  Imediate deportation of all Asians who arrived here less than say 50 years ago (no camps no problems)
    4.  An immediate policy of importation of Northern Europeans to the exclusion of non caucasians (caution must be made because many of these will refuse welfare and actually work and take jobs).

    “In dreams begin responsiblities” (William Butler Yeats).

    • Derelictus

      Hmm, only Northern Europeans?  Are you a Nordicist?

    • newscomments70

      “4. An immediate policy of importation of Northern Europeans to the exclusion of non Caucasians ”
      Northern Europeans would not immigrate to such a “racist” country. 70% of Swedes believe that massive third world immigration is a good thing. Have you ever been to Northern Europe? I have. And I have never met so many brain-dead liberals in my life.

      • Indiana Guy

        negro fatigue is setting in all over Europe

  • As a rule Stern is an idiot and an un-funny scumbag.  But this one is pure commedy gold.

    As others have pointed out, this is what literacy tests were designed to do: keep clueless dolts from voting.

  • bluffcreek1967

    The ignorant and mind-numbing Blacks interviewed on Stern’s show are actually quite representative of Blacks in general. This is not an aberration. Naturally, there are exceptions. But in my experience, while some Blacks might be a little more articulate than others, the overwhelming majority that I’ve encountered are dumber than dirt.

    Whites who don’t engage with Blacks on a regular basis tend to think they speak like Bill Cosby or Morgan Freeman. But what you’re hearing on Stern’s show is the usual level of intelligence and coherence of the average Black person.

  • Make that:
    (1) property owners who are solvent (i.e., assets are greater than their liabilities),
    (2) no one who is getting direct governmental benefits (disabled military excepted) (don’t want those who get wealth transfers voting to get more — this includes mortgage interest deductions),
    (3) pays taxes (“No Representation Without Taxation!”),
    (4) a literacy test, and
    (5) maybe some basic (8th grade?) math while we’re at it….

    That ought to clear the voting rolls of, oh, 95+% of NAMs (non-Asian minorities). 😉

    • Indiana Guy

      Thomas Jefferson was never solvent.

  • Years of liberal media propaganda has paid off. The Black Messiah doesn’t need to say or do a thing, his adoring ignorant minions are ready to do his bidding. The fact that these people are pretending to be making an informed, intelligent decision is the most revolting part of this story. Why don’t they just be honest and say “I hate white people, I don’t trust them and I’d rather have a mulatto in the White House who is more inclined to make excuses for my poor behavior, preserve my victimhood and shower me with benefits he derives from others.” We can only pray he is not re-elected and a revolution ensues.

  • And people question the need for literacy tests. Go figure.

  • WmarkW

    And people accuse Fox News viewers of being ignorant?

  • Bon, From the Land of Babble

    More fallout from The Great Society. 

    Democrats have gotten what they wanted:   supporters who are mindless, brain dead morons — uneducated and dependent.  It grates me that so many women complain: “Romney wants to take away my rights!!”  Complete and utter idiots — and the DNC will give them food and a bus to the polling venues to make sure they are canceling out YOUR vote.

    If there were an IQ test required for voting, the Dims would never win again.


  • Hell. I don’t even watch T.V., read the newspaper or care about politics in general and even I would recognize such questions as nonsense. It’s a shame these people are allowed to vote.

  • AmericanTaxPayerNoMore

    Voting was never supposed to be a Right.  I don’t expect people to be experts but you can’t be this dumb and expect to cast a Vote.

    And you can’t Vote if you can’t speak English neither.  I have seen “Vote Here” signs written in spanish and some asian language.  What is that?

  • zWsA

    I’m terrified at the thought of a democracy where wise men are outnumbered by morons at the polls. The average IQ of American voters has been in nonstop decline since 1867. Incidentally, the quality of US presidents has followed a similar pattern of decline.

    • Sheila Dinehart

      Ben Franklin worried about that too.

  • I find it hard to believe that these people have the mental prowess to feed themselves; if they were any dumber they would have to be watered.

    • Sheila Dinehart

      ha funny remark…they ought to be water-boarded.

      • ed91

         they’re vegetables Sheila, that’s the reference, not terrorists.

    • We saw this during Katrina–a population that’s completely government dependent and unable to fend for itself.

  • Stereotypes are indeed based on facts.

  • She’s Italian.

    • John Bonham

       She is a Hungarian Jew .. Not too sure where you’re getting your info from but, I’ve listened to Howard say this, time and time again..

      • The Worlds Scapegoat

         Luis gets it from the ADL.

        Actually you are right. Stern’s mother is jewish, and so is he.

      • I stand corrected then. I thought I heard Stern say his mother was Italian, on one of his shows, several years ago. 

  • Coleman91444

    The Idiocracy has arrived  in full force.  The only way back is to test everyone  and if they don’t know who the candidates are and what their policies are, they should be turned away from the voting booth as Too Stupid To Be Allowed to Vote.
    As for Stern, he could just as well have asked these morons who would be a better vice presidential candidate- Adolph Hitler or Genghis Khan. They would have chosen one or the other and carried on about “oh yeah, he beez da betta choice cause hims policies be helpin’ people and ****. He gonna do da betta job!”

  • John Bonham

     ^^^  This

  • John Bonham

     Seems you took a bit of the liberal brainwashing yourself  (schools I suppose ,that’s where they get most of them)… You say you own a business ,eh ?
    I guess ( by your post) that you’re a small business owner that clears just “UNDER” the $250,000  mark … Am I right ?? Of course I’m not , even if I WAS you would tell me that I’m wrong.. If you think that there are whites out there that would be the same as these blacks, why not do an interview yourself ??  Get your camera rolling and post it on you tube .. Was just wondering why Howard didn’t think of that himself and post the results.. Now I’m not saying there AREN’T whites just as uninformed I’m just saying that there isn’t as many, and it would be a hectic job weeding through the interviews to get the most uninformed for posting, to prove the point..

  • John Bonham

     Huh ??

  • blight14

     He IS an unbelievably disgusting creature, that isn’t up for conjecture….

  • godzillabloggs

    “I own a business which has an almost all White working class employees”. 

    What a terrible confession.  It seems as if you have deliberately deprived yourself of the benefits of diversity.

  • Defiant White

    It’s not the “Harlem populace.”   It’s America’s sainted, holy, #1 protected class:  The precious negro.

    Do you think a white comedian/radio personality could go into any ghetto in September of 2012, interview a handful of negroes and show how stupid they are?

    Yeah, countless “non jewish MCs and TV hosts” might have pulled that stunt 20-30 years ago, but not today.  Only a jew or another negro can make the negro look stupid.  Whites who shame negroes are racist.

  • blight14

    Oh, I don’t know, McCain MAY still have a chance IF Obama doesn’t ‘kill’ Bin Laden…….friggin morons, goodness!

  • Seek

    Howard Stern actually is Italian on his mother’s side.  And as far as beliefs go, he’s Jewish only in name.  Either way, he’s priceless entertainment and a lot more convincing than Rush Limbaugh, a loud, talentless hack.

  • The Worlds Scapegoat

     ” It was for all races, but during the wonderful “civil rights” period of
    our now godforsaken country, a particular high-strung economic/power
    elite who gets hysterical at the mere mention of its name made sure all
    idiots had the right to vote. This ensured their path to more power.”

    + infinity

  • The Worlds Scapegoat


    There are plenty of videos like this showing how stupid white people are. Go to you tube and watch Jay Leno’s Jaywalking.  There was one a while ago (10 years) that showed Americans were too stupid to know where Iraq was. They were shown a map that said Iraq over the continent of Australia. Americans, white Americans, said we should bomb Iraq and pointed at Australia. You can be sure that they don’t show smart people on these video clips. Pointing out how stupid black people are by distributing these videos does nothing to further white people. It actually makes us look stupid.

    • Puggg

      When Iraq II started in 2003, I actually heard a black woman say that she was worried about the war interrupting the ability of her pusher to bring her weed.  She was worried that the war in Iraq “would spill over the border from Iraq into Mexico.”

      You’re right in this sense.  The more we make fun of other people’s failures or stupidity, the more we give ourselves a lowest common denominator baseline, basically excusing ourselves for not being what we could be because we’re better than those stupid blacks that Howard Stern interviews or better than the Bundys on Married With Children or better than the typical Maury Povich show trash guests.  By dwelling on the LCD, all we will ever be is just one iota better than the LCD.  Which isn’t very good.

    • sarah stein

       Black, white, doesn’t matter.  How do we stop them from reproducing?

    • Persephone Gray

      I remember that video. It was truly shocking.

      Despite progressives’ theories to the contrary, having more and less advanced people live together and interbreed doesn’t raise the lower to equality with the higher; it drags the higher down.

      In this Dark Age, all excellence is being pulled down into the mud of ignorance and mediocrity. That includes whites. Naturally, it is apparent first in those whites who were at the lower end of the spectrum to begin with. The speed of this decline is increasing. There will be fewer and fewer remaining of the “natural elite”; but the highest percentage will still be among whites, and if we come out the other side of this tunnel, *they* will be the seeds of the new beginning.

  • Dan Reardon

     I would bet they know what NBA team is leading the playoffs or who’s on Jerry Springer this afternoon. I’m also sure they know exactly how much they’re entitled to on their EBT and what day of the month it’s due.

  • Puggg

    Your trying to be ignorant was not the same kind of ignorance as their ignorance, because you are not and can never be ignorant.  Otherwise caring then taking a vacation from caring is not the same thing as never caring to begin with.

    The truly stupid are people who are so stupid that they don’t even know they’re stupid.  Yes, there are people that stupid and ignorant.

    I happened to think Stern picked out the dumbest answers provided to his people for entertainment value.

  • sarah stein

    Being ignorant is boring,  but proving yourself to be ignorant,  now that’s entertainment.

  • sarah stein

     How smart would a “homeowner” be if section 8 housing popped up across the street.  Now his property values plummet by 80%, and this motivated seller is getting his house broken into every week. lol.  It’s better to rent if you’re not living in the middle of nowhere.  At least you don’t lose money on the sale of the house.  When you start getting sick at old age, the hospital will take your house anyway.

  • Howard Stern, no matter what he says, I do not listen to.  He has got to be one of the most slimey, worthless pos i have ever seen.  To me his talent and show are somewhere between gilligans island and mr ed the talking horse.    The people he interviewed are probably all brain damaged from listening to his show;

    Why would you Vote when you can’t even read the Language the ballot is printed in?  I don’t understand you.

    No, the ADL and SPLC doesn’t pay me but they should.  I’m always writing anti-immigrant and anti non-white sentiments so I’m sure they use me in their quest to keep The Great Big Lie alive.

    • Persephone Gray

      I believe he was being snarky about your capitalization of the word “vote” and your ungrammatical use of the word “neither.” Don’t worry, some people seem to think they’re being clever when they equate a well-educated white who speaks a non-standard English dialect to an ignorant, ebonics-speaking black. It is obvious you are smart and articulate, and your point is a valid one, so just ignore him.

      • AmericanTaxPayerNoMore

        My abuse of the English Language stems from my childhood.  It was my way of rebelling and I’ve never bothered to correct it and now it’s just old habit.

    Howard Stern was one of the first guys on the radio to poke fun at the criminality and stupidity of urban Black people.

  • Persephone Gray

    I believe the point of restricting the vote to property owners is not because it somehow demonstrates intelligence but because property-owners have a physical stake in the nation, i.e. they literally own the country, and therefore ought to be the ones who decide how it’s run. In other words, the vote is considered to be a privilege — and an obligation — of physical ownership, much in the way that the shareholders of a company dictate the running of the business.

  • The only reason they want Obama in office is cause he is black….period!!
