Dem Rep Discovers It’s No Fun Having to Walk on Eggshells

Mind you keep your Newspeak dictionary up to date. You wouldn’t want to be forced to crawl and grovel as you cough up a sniveling apology for using a word that is no longer deemed politically correct, like the dumbest man in Congress, Hank Johnson (D-GA). Excerpts from a “somewhat verbose” speech Johnson delivered on the House floor, expressing his deep regret for having spoken the forbidden word “midget”:

“You know, everybody knows what the ‘n-word’ is … We don’t say the ‘n-word,’ we refer to that word as the ‘n-word.’ I had never heard of the ‘m-word.’”

Johnson went on to explain how he recently learned about the hurtful past behind the m-word: “It was at one time socially acceptable. But to my discovery, just within the last 12 hours or so, I have found that the use of the of the ‘m-word is no longer socially acceptable. Now, the ‘m-word’ refers to a group of people, the little people.”

By “little people,” he does not mean leprechauns — or welfare moochers.

“When we say little people, I’m not talking about the Helmsley little people; I’m not talking about the 47%; I’m not talking about the takers instead of the makers as some would describe them; I’m not talking about the middle class, working people, poor people, working poor people — that’s not what is meant by the little people term. It really refers to a medical condition, dwarfism is the name of that medical condition, and sometimes I guess one can even say abnormally small people, abnormally small people which to me is — I like that term better than dwarfism.”

After some time he came to the actual apology:

“I wanted to say to all of those who may have been offended by my use of the term the ‘m-word,’ I want you to know that it was out of ignorance and not spite or hatred that I used that term and please know that I will never use that term again.”

He got an amen from fellow commie Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), who bobbed her empty noggin and averred, “we should all learn what to say so as not to offend people.”

But it’s still fine to use an obscene epithet to describe decent Americans who believe in limited government.

Best not to offend the little people.

    How did either of these people get elected? I wouldn’t trust either of them to care for a pet rock, much less take care of the business of the Nation.

    Hey Hank, maybe if the people on Guam were all “little people”, there would be less risk of it capsizing.

    He dissed the vertically challenged…what a mental midget.

    Half of Congress should be arrested, tried, and executed for crimes against the American people. Hank certainly would be among the first. Then a rule passed that no one with an IQ under 120 be elected to Congress.

    That will weed out many Dems.

    I’m offended that this mental midget has a cushy congress job and I have to work for a living. How does somebody with a singal-digit IQ get elected anyway. Oh, yeah. His constituents are all dumber than he is.

    Do you think he ever wondered why Guam never floated away, or does he think there’s a giant chain and anchor under it.

    HOW THE SPEACH SHOULD HAVE ENDED:

    “I wanted to say to all of those who may have been offended by my use of the term the ‘m-word,’ would it make you happy if I pulled out a gun and blew my brains out? Well FUCK YOU, it’s not going to happen. I suggest you grow a spine and stop being so thin-skinned. that goes for you niggers, too.”

    …………..

    He’s probably afraid someone was going to run him over with a MIDGET RACECAR.

    I’m in favor of anyone who wants to run for public office having to pass (80%) a sixth grade ecconomics and civics test from 1960.

    Hey guys, being “offended” has become a major industry in Amerika. Your odds of a major payday are a million times better than buying a lottery ticket. All you need is some liar, oops, i mean lawyer, a loud mouth, and the right color skin, and you’re in.

    I remember seeing(many, many moons ago) a western starring nothing but “little people”. Best line in the whole movie: “Shoot low, they’re riding Shetlands”.

  • HookLineandStinker

    Don’t worry. It’s still very muck ok to offend Christians, conservatives, Republicans and “Teabaggers”.

  • Alxandro

    I thought the M-word was already reserved for Messkins?
    Which btw, you can’t blurt our unless you are one.

    That will weed out many Dems.

    Plus at least one Repub, Boehner.

    Perhaps his apology to offended people should NOT have included the thought they they are abnormal.

    Just saying.
