Frosty the klansman.


Why are folks bugging out over Frosty the Klansman? Isn't he on private property? I know, I know, it's not exactly in keeping with the Christmas spirit in this wonderful nation of ours, but hey, to each his own. Leave Mark Eliseuson alone. He is just trying to get into the Christmas spirit. (Is that a noose in Frosty's hands? Man that Frosty is some character.)

Actually, if you think about it, a snowman is a perfect metaphor for a klansman: It's very white, it's pudgy looking, and it will melt when the heat is on. Perfect.

Of course, as is usually the case here in A-merry-ca; my man says that he is not a racist.

"The reaction: Eliseuson has the gall to say this isn't racist, says Elon James White at ThisWeekInBlackness.com. Who is he kidding? He even added a noose "just in case you weren't exactly sure what he was going for," or thought the snowman was wearing a "weird, mis-shaped pope hat." As a native Idahoan, says Cienna Madrid at The Stranger, I am ashamed that my state is "mostly known nationally for its potatoes, terrible congressmen, and now, giant racist snowmen." Idaho is getting a bad rep, but "it's really a wonderful state, I swear."

Ms. Madrid, I am sure it is. Mr. Eliseuson is just an anomaly. A bad actor among some very fine people. Wait....

Anyway, relax folks, I think Frosty the Klans man has been destroyed.

"Mark Eliseuson fashioned a pointed hood on his snowman's head, and attached a noose to its stick arm, prompting "appalled" neighbors to complain to the police. Although the Idahoan has since destroyed the snowman, it's not the first time he's rubbed people the wrong way." [Source]

"..For Frosty the snow man
Had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye saying,
"Don't you cry,
I'll be back again some day."

I love the holidays! Don't you?

LMAO...

It's Idaho.

SARCASM: You people are getting are too sensitive. Idaho is a state that is accomodating to you people. Just look at the racial makeup of the Boise State University football team.

LACoincidental said...

Cute, but a complete non-story. What does it matter if some bigot in the middle of nowhere makes giant Grand Wizard snowman?

But, I also realize that even the fields need a break.

$5 says this is Sarah Palin's neighbor in Alaska...

PilotX said...

Ha! My wife is from Idaho, I'm sure she'll love this story.

brohammas said...

My parents live in Idaho... guess they have to come here to see the grandkids.

Thank that man for saving me money on plane tix.

Hey, I love that blue field at Boise State. And I do like mashed potatoes. :)

chicago dyke said...

ha ha ha, it's just so "funny."

i guess if i made a snowman representing a giant white penis that i cut into 100 pieces and threw all over the ground in front of a dyke snobeing, everyone would "laugh" at that too, right?

oh, wait...

this cracker does it for the attention. like most of them. what a loser. wake up, dood. you don't live in alabama. you probably couldn't get a job there, because, you know, too many qualified black men with bigger dicks than yours already have them, but you probably already know that, and that's what makes you so angry.

cue anon commenters at this blog talking about al sharpton, will smith, some sports figure, and obama in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1...--

don't worry, troll. we already know your dicks are soft, small and limp and you're lamely obsessed with black men like FN.

chicago dyke, "don't worry, troll. we already know your dicks are soft, small and limp and you're lamely obsessed with black men like FN."

fyi, most of anons are Black and have been on FN blog for quite a while. We are not trolls but regulars here....Pay attention, Ms. dyke.

Field, this was a hilarious post. I have to ask, didn't you find it funny that Elton James last name was "White" who went after a White guy about a White snowman with a noose. lol. I can't stop laughing. Where the hell do you find these outrageous stories, in Idaho? :D ..LMBAO

You should frame this post. It is truly a winner.

Sandy248 said...

Is it me or is it ok for you to show your inner klansman since Palin and the Tea Klux Klan became media fodder.

rikyrah said...

some folks have lost their damn minds.

mellaneous said...

Field I saw this at raw story and while this seemed somewhat harmless the other stories about the resurgence of Klan appearances around the country and the handing out of racist literature got my attention.

I think we will see more overt racism as times get tougher.

What better way to get at what's causing all the hardship than to start hating your neighbor.

Jibreel Riley said...

folks calm down, he is my neighbour then again he is always telling me how he is glad that I'm not like those Negroes he sees on TV

Wesley R said...

Yea, look at at the Boise State Football Team, Idaho, Utah, BYU, etc., they know were to go to get the talent. Factor in the other sports also. The down side for the bigots is that some of their daughters will become intimate with the players and the bigots will soon have brown grandkids, nieces, nephews......
Throw in the Wyomings etc, and that changes the election landscape as well.
So now we hear the wingnuts want to go back to some JimCrow days type of ish. "You cant vote unless you are a property owner" for one. Let's see what else comes up.
They can try all they want. The numbers are against them. Soon this will be a majority, minority country.

Mack Lyons said...

"Tarring" Frosty the Klansman with black paint would have been a rather fitting end. And it'd give the guy pause as he has to shovel up all the "tarred" snow off his lawn and, of course, thank his lucky little stars that whoever did it didn't target the house instead.

You forgot George Soros, the biggest Becktard bogeyman of them all.

Oh yeah, and Mooslems, you can't forget the Mooslems.

Sarge said...

C'mon, Field, cut the guy some slack. Anyone can plainly see it's just a seasonal, available seasonal materials garden gnome gone horribly wrong. No dye for the red hat and blue coat, no broom, so he had to use SOMETHING!

Why do people who buy into the myth of white supremacy do so many things that just add more nails to its coffin?

But...look who's doing the nailing.

brohammas said...

Wesley R, you just called the entire Intremountain West bigots?
Come on man.
There are just as many good white people in Montana and Wyoming as there is in NYC (percentage wise not numericly), and just as many biggoted idiots... there just arent any black people.... there arent that many people PERIOD.
Come on Wesley, step up your game.

field negro said...

"Is it me or is it ok for you to show your inner klansman since Palin and the Tea Klux Klan became media fodder."

Hmmm.

Wesley, I don't know too many folks out West. But I do know brohammas, and he is good people.:)

BTW Wesley, WTF is up with our Sixers? Did you see them blow that game in "the A" last night? Geez.:(

LOL@ Jibreel.

Mellaneous, you are right, this stuff isn't funny. It does go to a larger problem. And the big R will loom larger as times get tougher.

Anonymous said...

Yes, chicago dyke was correct...loserman does this for the attention...like many wingnuts beleeve it is okay to molest children...as long as it upsets those Libruls.
Overt racism was given the greenlight by st reagan. Sarey and Addison Graves Wlson are just the latest ones. Still, most of us (US) like meritocracy, hence the use of 'Socialist' to describe the Blue Dog Presidency of Obama. Can't use the word they really, really want to say.

"prompting "appalled" neighbors to complain to the police"

Where were the neighbors from? Philadelphia?

Anonymous said...

Field,
I think Sarge is on to something there with the yard ornament. I've never understood those little beasties.

Aloha from Makaii

PilotX said...

This is that age old debate. My wife and my friends say they prefer overt racism so they know who they're dealing with but growing up in Chicago I'm not used to the overt stuff. Maybe I have delicate sensibilities but I know how to deal with the covert stuff but I don't know how I would deal with the in your face stuff. I might be stunned into silence. It would take a few minutes for it to register, one of those "didn't this mofo say what I think he said? nah, ain't no way......"

teachermrw said...

Perhaps he can make a Sarah Palin snowperson to accompany the snow Klansman.

And, I bet you the guy is a Bible-thumping Christian.

Field,
OFF TOPIC

One more thing....I've noticed you haven't mentioned or noted the new Attorney General(Kamala Harris) in California yet??.

I've read on Wiki that her Dad is from Jamaica so thought you would be on that story.

Aloha from Makaii

She's not even black, who cares.

Not white here either, black as coal, but thanks for playing dumb dyke.

I guess every blog has to have the village idiot. Thanks for volunteering and continually providing entertainment Ernesto.


Drop me a line if you want some original material. The stuff you keep using over and over and over makes you sound...well you know....

what can you say about ernesto? the guy is about as deep as a puddle. he waits all day to watch olbermann and maddow and then runs to his computer to repeat what he heard. he is parody of the msnbc liberal.

Wesley R said...

Field,

Your guy brohammas is a little to sensitive for me to deal with. As far as the Sixers I've known their star since he was 14 years old. I told him after his first year that he needed to leave because he's more of a west coast player. His teammates are good athletes but they no basketball IQ.

field negro said...

Wesley if you are referring to the other AI you are right. His game is pure West Coast. And he isn't a superstar. He needs to be on a team as a second or third fiddle.

Whitey's Conspiracy said...

It'd be a lot easier to defend Idahoans, who do come out in numbers to protest most every racist event that gets publicity in their State, if their current politics weren't so Tbaggerish, looney, and vaguely '50s-ish.

The Purple Cow said...

Anonnymous 4:54 - if you are going to use crude slang at least get it right. A Lesbian is a 'pillow muncher' - not a carpet muncher.

A carpet muncher is a fascist. This relates to Hitler's penchant for literally chewing his office carpet when he flew into a rage in the last year of the war.

Unless you are accusing AB of being a fascist, in which case fair enough.

Rudy said...

I actually played football in the WAC.

The folks in the mountain states are that bad.

We did have an incident in a Wyoming hotel though...LOL. Our free safety accidently entered the wrong ball room en route to a team meeting. It must have been Billy Bob night or something, because those guys (in there 10 gallons and shit kickers) looked at him like he was out of his damn mind...LOL.

Aside from that, no incidents to report.

field negro said...

LOL@ Rudy. I went to grad sschool with a kid who played football for the University of Idaho. [Vandals I think]The kid was from South Central La. and he had some great stories as well.

Purple Cow, you are such a good person. You are always educating the ignorant free of charge. :)
