Alaska man files lawsuit claiming that Barack Obama can't be president because he is "Mulatto." Hasn't Sarah Palin been embarrassing enough?

Sorry kid you can't be president. Wrong color.
Courtesy of E News PF:

A man from Juneau, Alaska, has filed suit with the state's Division of Elections to bar President Obama from appearing on that state's ballot on the basis that the President is a "Mulatto", and "the race of 'Negro' or 'Mulatto' had no standing to be citizens of the United States under the United States Constitution." Gordon Warren Epperly, who lists his address as a P.O. Box, filed the nomination petition objection on February 21, 2012. 

According to the complaint: 

Barack Hussein Obama II, Aka Barack Hussein Obama, Aka Barack H. Obama has the race status of being a "Mulatto." Barack Obama's father (Barack Hussein Obama I) was a full blood Negro being born Nyang'oma Kogelo, Nyanza Province, Kenya and raised in the Colony of Kenya. Barack Obama's mother (Stanley Ann Dunham) was a white Caucasian woman being born in Wichita, Kansas on November 29, 1942 and raised in the state of Washington and in the State of Hawaii. 

Therefore: 

As stated above, for an Individual to be a Candidate for the Office of President of the United States, the Candidate must meet the qualifications set forth in the United States Constitution and one of those qualifications is that the Candidate shall be a "natural born Citizen" of the United States. As Barack Hussein Obama II is of the "Mulatto" race, his status of citizenship is founded upon the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Before the [purported] ratification of the Fourteenth Amendment, the race of "Negro" or "Mulatto" had no standing to be citizens of the United States under the United States Constitution.

(You can read the entire complaint here.)

In other words since many of the Founding Fathers were men of their time who did not recognize that people of color should have as many rights as white people, those people should be forever barred from holding office in America?

Now you know why people like Sarah Palin, Sean Parnell, Dan Sullivan, and Don Young keep getting elected in Alaska.  Because the stupidity and ignorance run deep in the Last Frontier.

Jesus who even uses the term "Mulatto" anymore?

  1. Gives a whole different twist on the term brain freeze doesn't it?

    The guys brain is surely frozen, what little there is of it.

    If he wasn't a racist he wouldn't be filing a frivolous lawsuit.

    He and SP are definitely of the same ilk.

    I am appalled that someone would use "race" against our president.

    From birthers to this bastard-it has all been about color and being pissed off that a "black man" won.

    'Purported ratification' of the 14th amendment? Wow, this country is in trouble. These morons don't just want to rewrite history, they want to rewrite reality.

    The fact that the court would even consider a petition like this is disturbing. As disturbing as the fact that someone with Rick Santorum's backward and theocratic-leaning ideology is surging in Republican polls.

    I love this picture of Obama and his mom. She was truly a beautiful lady.
    I just finished reading a really good article on The Palin Place - concerning Palins, of course. But there are some bits and pieces - especially about Bristol I did not know.

    We are at the midway point; it is half-time in America; we are at a crossroads.
    We can continue the path towards enlightenment or we can return to the dark ages where women have to wear chastity belts under President Santorum.

    In President Santorum's America women would be forced into back-ally abortions, contraception and prenatal care would be banned, Planned Parenthood would be padlocked, women wouldn't be allowed to work or serve their country, gays in the military would be forced back into the closet, same-sex marriages would be voided, Terri Schiavo's husband would be imprisoned, collective bargaining would become illegal, evolution would be outlawed, schoolchildren would be indoctrinated in creationism, Medicare would be privatized, education would be defunded, Keystone tar would irreparably damage the planet, and trillions would be wasted on an unwinable war with Iran.

    America is a better and freer nation than Rick Santorum thinks.

    But in the end, it's all up to you. VOTE!

    Barack ROCKS into 2012!

    This is the last stage in any paranoid illness. You start by suspecting that somebody out there is out to get you; in the end, you’re sure that even the people who love you the most under your own roof, your own doctors, your parents, your wife and your children, they’re in on the plot. To quote Matt Damon in the almost-underrated spy film The Good Shepherd, they became convinced that there’s "a stranger in the house."

    This is where the Republican Party is now. They’ve run out of foreign enemies to point fingers at. They’ve already maxed out the rhetoric against us orgiastic, anarchy-loving pansexual liberal terrorists. The only possible remaining explanation for their troubles is that their own leaders have failed them. There is a stranger in the house!

    This current race for the presidential nomination has therefore devolved into a kind of Freudian Agatha Christie story, in which the disturbed and highly paranoid voter base by turns tests the orthodoxy of each candidate, trying to figure out which one is the spy, which one is really Barack Obama bin Laden-Marx under the candidate mask!

  13. Poor Sarah couldn't take it when the media asked a few questions. She whined to her husband, her staff and anyone else who would listen.

    Imagine if she had to cope with what Barack Obama has received all his life.

    The President ignores it - as he learned at his mother's knee.

    This racist is simply more obvious than the others - they talk about the President being "different" or "anti american" - or whatever - means the same thing.

    To me, this guy, the Palins and the secessionist groups in Alaska just emphasize the fact that our President is highly intelligent and they can not stand THAT. How dare he attend Harvard, get a law degree and end up in the WH? We all know beyond a shadow of a doubt that the repubs. like their followers (and so-called leaders) to be DUMB.

    Perhaps Gordon was born in Alaska when Alaska was not a state and was still a territory.

    Hmm, where's his long form birth certificate and independent (of the tea party) proof he's here legally and is an actual citizen of the United States.

    I think Gordon should also have a DNA test. To prove just how really white (if he's white) he really is to the rest of the USA.

    Just like when Sarah Palin goes on about her tea dog whistle racist crap, ahem, her kids aren't exactly all white either. Per Todd's bloodline.

    Which doesn't bother me, yet seems to be such a huge factor to so many white racists in the tea party.

    Come on Sarah, how about a DNA test to prove just how white you are via your tea rants.

    Yet she won't do it. She's all tease and no action unless it another of her self interest only and well paying scams.

    Exactly, 6:11 --

    Sarah's married to a "mulatto."
    If she were President, a "mulatto" and their "mulatto" children would occupy the White House.

    Please petition the court to disallow any further Palin candidacy.

    Oh, by the way, there were rumors that Warren Harding had "mulatto" blood. Should we excise him from the history books, in indict him posthumously? Plus all the electors and WOMEN voters who voted for him?

    The founders didn't allow women to vote, so let's get them out of the way from now on. Please file a petition. That is a further reason for Sarah Palin to get back to her kitchen, her kids, and her Blackberry in Wasilla and stay there.

    Mother of God (I probably shouldn’t use that phrase, seeing as how I’m agnostic), this is deeply disturbing. This idiot makes me miss James Baldwin and Hunter Thompson all the more. To quote 4:22am:

    “From birthers to this bastard-it has all been about color and being pissed off that a "black man" won.”

    That’s it in a nutshell, a “black man won”. “They” cannot and will not accept it. Obama flies in the face of how they perceive America. To “them” he is a total anomaly. They would have preferred Hillary, at least she’s white, but of course had she gotten to be POTUS they would have fought that too, but not to the degree that “they” are going after Obama.

    To quote 4:55am, America is definitely at a crossroad. These racists, moronic fools are showing the rest of the world just how dysfunctional and clueless they are. It’s beyond pathetic. Here we are in the 21st century and still this useless counter productive excrement of the bovine. “They” have no idea how they are shaming our country, no idea how their absurdity defiles what it means to be an American.

    As a black man this kind of disgusting display frightens me no end.

    Landslide in 2012. America won’t continue to be America without it.

  25. Ohhhhh... Well, that makes perfect sense. I mean, shoot, he shouldn't even be allowed to vote, right? And I'm part American Indian, so I guess I should be kicked out of the house I bought and made to live on a reservation. Guess I'll start packing my bags. Maybe the 3/5 of a person who is currently masquerading as President can come visit me and we can lament that we're still wallowing in the 1800s. Oh wait... it's 2012, you say? Well I'll be damned. Does that mean I'm no longer legally property of my husband???

    FYI The term mulatto is still used and isn't necessarily offensive in a few countries in the world such as Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
    But I suppose this guy had to use something ( other than the N word) and he most likely thought it was "high class trailer trash" to use the word mulatto. But this guy DOES admit that the president's mom was a US citizen.
    The GOP racists just better learn to get over it...we minorities, we women, we "the gays", all VOTE and his attitude and position was lost back in the civil war.
    Some of these rcaists will never get over it, but with each new generation their is more diversity, with each new biracial child--there are more families accepting......this unflippingbelievable racist is a dying breed in many ways and the end of this is slow in coming, but it will happen.
    am the prduct of a biracial marriage, my children are in biracial marriages, slowly but surely we are ending the "whites only" not with violence but with loving families. Whites will soon be a minority and THAT is what this guy is deathly afraid of.

We have a Menard in the Valley - Wasilla (Sarah's home) that peed all over his hotel room in Sitka (he was there on city business) - barfs, etc. and then has to resign in total disgrace (his Mother is currently in our State Legislature!). The Menards are close friends of the Palin/Heath families...Palin's son, Track, has been rumored to be the biological son of the oldest Menard son (now deceased). The webs we weave!

    I'm amazed by how all of the far right wing conservatives think of themselves as Constitutional scholars. They seem to think no one else can properly read and understand the Constitution as well as they can, I guess. This suit is only going to be laughed out of court, and I doubt there is a lawyer in Alaska who would want to professionally identify themselves with this.

    This is truly the work of another ignorant far right wing conservative racist, who has no idea how stupid this makes him look.

    That's my favorite photo of the President's mother, I often wonder, in her wildest dreams, if the idea of her son becoming POTUS ever crossed her mind or seemed possible.

    The most beautiful flowers in nature are hybrids, and I think the same applies to genetics.

    I don't see skin color when I see our President, although he self identifies as a black man, all I see is a motivated, smart, calm, hard working person who's done his level best to help all Americans.

    Not to mention that when the Constitution was created I believe Alaska AND California weren't states - or even thought of in terms of what states were comprised of in the then United States of America, and as mentioned - women had NO rights except to be chattel of their husbands. Is Warren Todd's cohort in the AIP?

    OT - Also, doesn't it strike you as likely that Todd's prostitution ring has probably been in place for quite awhile, probably even before Shailey Tripp's being coerced into service? And that the services were enjoyed by more than just local rinky dink politicians and bigwigs especially the closer to Palin being chosen to be VP candidate - that perhaps national political operatives, oil execs, etc. were also ensnared?

    Why would the FBI be involved with just a small-time prostitute like Shailey Tripp - doesn't that indicate that indeed there was a prostitution ring involving many prostitutes and a whole lot of johns? Is this why the truth is being quashed - not so much for the Palins - but for covering up all these people as well as the Palins?

    With Todd Palin in possession of Shay's detailed documentation of the visits she had with Todd's "referrals" - how afraid would they be of what Todd knows and could reveal if they all don't work to cover up the truth?

    With meth and oxycontin being a major problem in Wasilla - is this too a part of the "silence" going on? I find it truly odd the stories of Track's addiction to oxycontin and Sherry Johnston's conviction for selling it, along with Todd's sister Diane B&E's - ostensibly to steal money to buy....oxycontin, and find it hard to believe they are not related!

    I live in a small town - 6000 - and pretty much everybody knows everybody else's business. And you know, for the most part, who the addicts are and where they are getting their "stuff".
