    I saw this earlier.

    My ‘favorite’ was the black ‘genius’ at the end. That pretty much sums up anything that needs to be said.

    “i just voted for him because he’s black”
    didn’t democracy see this coming?

    • So CAL Snowman

      That’s probably why the Founding Fathers set up a Constitutional Republic where only land owning White males could vote. It just makes absolute perfect sense.

        Those at the very top of the food chain (e.g., owners of the world’s central banks) have stacked the deck under the auspices of “civil rights”. Conservative White votes are nullified by the votes of everyone else. Congress faces a constant 50/50 split in public opinion and enacts laws according to the wishes of their largest donors (e.g., banksters).

    • MikeS

      “I just voted for him because he’s not White” is what she really wanted to say.

      Democracy saw this coming but, by then, it was already too late.

    • StillModerated

      The Republicans killed the republic. The democrats are slaughtering democracy. So, what we need toady is an Imperial New World Order Party.

    This is a copy of The Tonight Show’s “Jaywalking” segment, which itself was a copy of the Howard Stern Radio Show, where Stern would send Stuttering John Melendez to interview clueless New York airheads at random, often in Harlem.

    Our entertainment industry is just sooo original…

    • Nathanwartooth

      Well it’s easy. You only have to find between 5-10 clueless people to have a segment.

      Send someone out to interview people on the street for an hour and at least 10% will give clueless stupid replies. Easy TV.

    • bigone4u

      I always wondered how Howard Stern got away with focusing on stupid blacks. It’s a wonder the NAACP didn’t complain about him giving blacks a bad image.

      • Stern is an open Democrat voter, perhaps that’s how. But his luck sorta ran out with the “nappy headed hoes” comment re Rutgers women’s basketball.

        • Thor Bonham

          That was actually Don Imus that said that …

        • Nathanwartooth

          Now that Stern is on satellite radio and supposedly about 50% of people who have satellite radio ONLY listen to his station, he can pretty much do whatever he wants.

  • I’ll give that black woman credit for admitting the obvious, and ironically, sounding like the smartest one by saying she didn’t know what the sequester is.

    • Matt Turner

      That was a woman? Well I never!

  • I know I ripped this off, but I’m waiting for the first Hollywoodtard couple to name their kid Sequester.

      I don’t know about you, QD, but I am sick and tired of hearing about the Lardassian clan. When it comes to warping the minds of impressionable, young women – by promoting miscegenation, promiscuity, vulgarity and vanity – they are on a par with Lady GaGa. Of course, we both know who their handlers are…

      • One day soon, they’ll be has-beens. Only to be replaced by low information undertow idols that are even more vacuous and amoral.

    “I just voted for him cause he black.”

    That statement alone should be enough proof that race had everything to do with Obama’s elections. Not to mention that if you didn’t vote for Obama and you’re against his policies, you’re seen as a racist.

    • White and Proud

      I voted against NOBAMA because he is Black and I don’t apologize for it.

      • Katherine McChesney

        So, did I.

      • Johnny Clay

        I would never vote for a black Democrat. They’re number one priority is getting even with YT.

        • “Getting Even” The cultural marxist white haters have already gotten even. White ethnocentrist poltical action is practically socially outlawed. Non white on white crime is sky high with no receding trend in sight. Whites are perpetually racially disenfranchised with literally no sense of identity. Whites are being forced to wear “white privilege” wristbands in a school district in which they are the minority students. Now what if the current “white oppressor” paradigm was false? What if the “oppressor” class was just a cultural marxist invention designed to empower the designated “victim” class over the “oppressor” class? It’s quickly becoming a raceocracy in which your civic victim status represents your moral authority not your character or accolades.

          Get Even? They have already gotten completely even now they are striving for complete racial imbalance. The egalitarians want you dead or politically incapacitated. The nation used to be a closed system. The government controlled what came in and what used to go out. Now we have a complete open system that allows any form of degeneracy and dysfunction to reign over us. It’s power through mob rule. Since whites aren’t ready as a people to commit violence in order to achieve their political goals their status will continue to erode. Their status eroding is symbolic to the country’s image eroding into a deranged amoral deconstructionist proggressive society. When the enemy controls what is truth and what isn’t truth despite claiming reality is a subjective concept what are we left to do? They control the debate the platform and the pundits we can only sit, watch, and beg for mercy and hope the banking/media/government cabal is lenient when they go in for the coup de grace.

          Sorry for the ranting, but you can’t possibly believe they haven’t gotten more than even. They have turned our world upside down ever so slowly. The Citizens still believe they have a small semblence of freedom despite the fact that their thoughts are not even their own. In our society in which all human input and output is controlled by media conglomerates and the education system there is no leeway for freedom of thought/association. It’s all external media stimuli and the organisms desired response to said stimuli. There is no freedom. We are living in an age of dominant social engineering complete with morally bankrupt madmen steering the societal rudder.

  • Luca

    Clearly taped on Hollywood Blvd. For those of you who don’t live in So Cal. you could make an entire TV series on Hollywood Blvd. doing this all day long and never run out of people like this who are totally clueless. They know more about Justin Bieber’s shoe size then they do about the politics that rule their lives and future. Guaranteed, most are Liberals too.

    • pcmustgo

      Yeah, CELEBRITY-TV , this is the problem with White People. So many whites I’ve met in life only care about sports or celebrities and tv shows.

      • pcmustgo

        And Obama’s our first “Celebrity President”. With Michelle even showing up at the Oscars to give away the award for Argo. (egh…)

        DUMBED DOWN.

        Our owners, as George Carlin called them, know how to control us. Distract us with nonsense so that we pay no attention to the real issues. 200 channels with junk plus People magazine, etc. adds up to a lot of distraction.

        • StillModerated

          Why do you think it’s called programming?

        My building is FILLED with stupid liberal Whites whose lives are centered around tv and sports and junk food. I complained a few months ago about getting a neighbor from the Dominican Republic…now we have our first Mexican.

      Because the country is led by “Italian Rome Morphia Gansters”.

  • Puggg

    She didn’t ask the two Spidermen at 1:35.

  • ncpride

    Sheesh…. no wonder our country is such a mess. But I suppose to be fair, I didn’t become interested in politics until my late 20’s.

    • Which means you beat the curve. Most people are apolitical in their young years and young adult years, and general don’t start getting really politically aware until their 30s, usually 35-40.

      • ncpride

        It probably would have been that age for me too, had I not had a daughter start school. Since I always intented to be very involved in her education, I became curious to know who was on our school board, and what they stood for. Of course, that led to who our reps were for our state and so forth, so I started out interested in local politics, and it grew from there.

  • LJR

    There should be a literacy test to vote!!

    • joesolargenius

      Well that would be the end of the Democratic Party if you had to pass a test to vote.

    • The__Bobster

      The American public has been trained to believe voting tests beez razzist.

    • sbuffalonative

      There should be some kind of test. Unfortunately, blacks would always score lower and the test would be thrown out because of disparate impact.

      • America First

        “Disparate Impact” The most revolting, phony, trumped-up, fraudulent and anti-white racist excuse for a legal principle ever concocted.

  • Shattered

    Wow. Totally clueless. Obama voters have got to be the stupidest people on the face of the earth.

    • guest

      And considering that he’s president again because of all of those people who voted for him, all the other countries in the world must think Americans are the stupidest people on the face of the earth. The moment I heard Obama got elected a second term, I immediately thought of all the people in the other countries making fun of us and laughing at us. How embarrassing is that?

      • Guest

        You should see what the Chinese people on the street think of him. He idolizes China but the Chinese people think he’s a traitor. They have a pet name for him.

        • The chinese surprisingly(not) hate non chinese. BIG SHOCKER THERE lol they probably think Obama is just some sad sack of crap trying to further the descent into American madness.

      • Johnny Clay

        It’s not just the stupid people who voted for Obama. It’s the 3 million potentially conservative voters who stayed home and refused to vote for Romney out of “ideological purity” that helped put Obama back into office. Thanks a lot! Happy now?!

        • Joseph

          Yes, sadly you are right. The lesson learned by the Republican Central Committee was not that they need to return to their principles of conservatism to bring back those millions of white middle-class voters, rather that they need to “reach out to the Hispanic community”. Here we are with four more years of His Dusky Hopefulness.

      • A. Windaus

        As an Australian I was left wondering if Obama was the lesser of two evils. I’m a Republican by my ethics and morality, but there was something seriously wrong with Mitt Romney and I would never have voted for him if I were able to. At the time of the election the quote by Joseph de Maistre came to mind: “Every nation gets the government it deserves.” As the American populace devolves both intellectually and morally, so will your leadership.

        • Joseph

          “Every nation gets the government it deserves.”

          This old banality is akin to the idea that rape victims were “asking for it”. Power accretes to itself power and those in government incrementally fashion laws and systems to enhance their wealth and power at the expense of the populus apart from the consent and usually, knowledge of the governed. By the time the majority of a nation determines that the government is at odds with the welfare of the people, they are typically powerless to alter it. This is why control of education, media and disarmament of the population is so vital to government agents.

  • pcmustgo

    The Black lady at the end was doing some stereotypical Black Female Head Bobbling and Weaving and eye-rolling. And neck-rolling.

    • Thor Bonham

      It’s called, Chicken necking…

  • Other Guest

    These people should have their citizenship revoked.

    • Alan

      Do you mean the Whites in the segment as well?

    • Johnny Clay

      If they get reparations, that should be condition number one.

  • D.H. Andrews

    There were some very good reasons why Blacks were denied the right to vote – and determine the direction of this country and everyone’s lives. Most if not all the above filmed people were Ogongo voters, no doubt. They have a new term for them: the “low information voter”.

  • robinbishop34

    Wait a minute… did I just hear that woman say that Portugal had the constitutional right to be protected? Good grief!

  • LastBastionOfHope

    Damn people in LA are stupid as hell. At least in New York, DC, and Boston people would at least know it was a joke. The black lady at the end was no surprise. Everyone knows Obama is in office due to the votes based on his race. What is it something like 97% of blacks voted for Obama? It really is ironic…they call everyone racists, yet they do the most racist thing: electing a black person regardless of their platform only based on skin color.

  • Phineas

    At one time, there was a literacy test

  • ImnotracistOhWaityesIam

    It should be pointed out that the Jimmy’s audience is equally as dumb. Comedy is subjective, but there are numerous times where someone says something absurd and the crowd doesn’t laugh or acknowledge it. A prime example is at 1:32. The crowd doesn’t laugh when the woman states “they have a constitutional right.”

    The audience and the pedestrians are interchangeable, yet the audience has no clue. This is a divine comedy of the uninformed; the stupid laughing at the clueless, and none of it is funny.

  • bigone4u

    I started following the news in grammar school back in the day because of the little newspaper called the Weekly Reader. I went on the newspapers, the Reader’s Digest, Life magazine, and much more. It was great to learn about everything happening in the world. How white of me, I suppose. Total ignorance is what the public school creates today due to its mission to indoctrinate in cultural Marxism.

  • Thor Bonham

    Imagine the tables turned circa 2003 or there abouts .. Same question and white womans say seqesta wut ? I don’tknow, I just voted for Bush cuz he’s white ..
    HHmmmm , what would happen ?

    • Albert

      The fact was that at least this woman was honest and sad to say, she came off looking better that the whites they interviewed who looked like IDIOTS! Literally!

      • Edward

        Sad to say, you are correct.

      • Nathanwartooth

        Too many Whites are concerned with looking and sounding smart above all else.

        Call a White stupid or uneducated is an insult. To many Blacks they could care less, education is a White thing. This why I think she was so honest.

        • Jim

          Well, you can spin it anyway you like, I agree with Albert, unfortunately, the Whites in the segment looked foolish and idiotic. My late grandmother always said it’s is better to admit what you don’t know as opposed to pretending you know the answer to something that you do not. By doing the latter it becomes all to apparent.

          • Nathanwartooth

            Oh I agree. In an effort to look smart and informed they looked the complete opposite.

  • refocus

    I do not want to add to the hopelessness but really… does anyone out there in AmRen cyberspace have even one white friend/acquaintance that could be considered politically racially awake to at least even a small degree?

    Practically everyone I know is so far off the mark that I have started encouraging them to get their flu shots and boosters for their vaccines.

    • Joseph

      The mass hypnosis has overcome most but not all. I have family and friends both who are just as incensed at the bs foisted on us for diversity sake. I actually had an east-Indian physics professor frankly tell me how hard he has to work to even pass an “African-American student” because they are “so stupid”. Now *that* is racially pretty pointed but of course, could only be related in a private conversation.

  • white man awakening

    let US vote for someone cause they are WHITE!

    • Reggie

      I am sure most of you AMRENERS do so all the time.

  • A. Windaus

    The idiocy of the common Obama voter aside, the “sequester” isn’t even a budget cut. The amount Obama will spend in 2013 is US$3.803 trillion, which is more than the US$3.795 trillion Obama spent last year in 2012. THERE ARE NO BUDGET CUTS!
