If you did not understand that the Slim Pickens character (not only in Strangelove but his entire body of work) is often as a dumb-fuck ignorant red-neck, perhaps you shouldn't have used him to broad brush white voters.

I thought the analogy was apt.  And I think I can think that without cosigning onto everything you read into Slim Pickens' character.  Personally (though I haven't seen the film in a while) I always saw him as more of a ya-hoo cowboy loose-cannon type than explicitly "red-neck."

Nothing in Dr. Strangelove suggests Lt. Major Kong is a racist or a Redneck.
He is a Texas cowboy bravely carrying out duty to his country.
And his reading of the survival kit instructions to his bomber  crew is hilarious.


He wasn't racist but IMO red-neck is apt.

and the yee-haw as he rode the bomb as a rodeo rider evoked a sterotypical "southern gool ole boy" personna.

And the equation of white people to Slim Pickens was questioned.

Rodeos are not southern. Cowboys are not good ole boys. And Red's description of his role in Strangelove is apt. As is Knicks analogy to white Trump supporters.

Works for GOP Congresspeople too.

Approximately one out four Cowboys were black but not according to the romantic popular culture.

I read about guys like Bass Reeves and Nat Love (aka Deadwood Dick) when I was a youngster.

*Also, the town of Yuma AZ was named by a black cowboy. After losing in a gunfight his last words before dying were supposedly:

“You mah..., you mah...”

*(Very old joke)

I think of rodeos and Nascar as southern pastimes and Cowboys as red-necks.

Red's description was reasonable.

IMO Knicks need to blame "whites" is not.

Genetics. (see above)

knicks has a tendency to blame white people for lots of things.

Were whites responsible for Obama's election as well as Trump's?

What role did black voter fall-off in '16 play in electing Trump?

He can blame whomever he likes.

Troll, while knicks and I may have our differences, I think we can agree on one thing, that you are an indecent piece of shit.



Thanks for proving my point. Peddie.

Why can't we all just get along?

Oh, yeah.

Because we in our tribes!

Ungawah!

Go, Sox!

Let's go, Mets!

Red State.

Blue State.

Donkey.

Elephant.

German. French. Virginia, West Virginia.

Evangelical. Catholic, Jew, Baptist, Methodist, Presbyterian, Hindu, Muslim, Taoist, Maoist...

This side of the river! That side!

That's part of the issue, for sure.

But the real issue is people like Knicks and Banks, both of whom think they know everything, and both of whom can't stand letting anyone else have the last word.

Which is where I come in. My primary purpose here is to unite you all.

That is my role, and for that I am glad. Peacemaker of sorts, since you can all, at the end of the day agree on one thing.

Hating Utley!

You may now all do what Chris Carlin told Fatso and Fruit Loops to do.

See ya!

May not know everything, but I know more than you.

Thanks for proving my point. Buckwheat.

But lemme ask you this. If they are cloning, a child in Czechoslovakia. And they decide that 8 is enough and stop the process on number 9, is that an abortion?

And what do they call that?

They call it "Send in the Clones".

43% of Whites voted for Obama in 2008.

39% (to almost 60% for Romney) voted for Obama in 2012.

So no, Whites were not responsible for Obama’s election.

Gosh I could gab about the ideological symbology of Strangelove roles all day!

Don't get me started on Pres.  Merkin Muffley and its clitoral implications. 

General Ripper seems like the best fit with the current administration.
