Rachel Dolezal, 37, is the head of the local chapter of the NAACP and has identified herself as African-American. But her Montana birth certificate says she was born to two Caucasian parents…

    I was born to poor parents, but I self-identify as being rich…

    …social justice requires that someone give me money — lots of money.

    I feel for these ladies, I really do. I have always identified as an Apache Attack Helicopter.

    I’m eating a lot of iron, and have been speaking with robotics surgeons to try to get the blades just right, and have been practicing walking on skids.

    I at first though I was more an A-10 Warthog, but decided that the twin 40MM cannons would be just too much for my lanky frame, so I opted for the bolt on 30′s and thus the Apache in me was born.

    It’s a difficult project that will take years to complete, my surgeon went from memory and missed the boat on my first surgery. He says we can build on this framework….

    Don’t judge me. I am Apache Howlsatmoon.

    Can we call Obama a Hermafro-American?

    I understand the feelings of these victims of wrongskin. People think of me as a Terran. But really, I feel I am a Jovanian (“Jupitarian” for those who use old terms like “Negro” for African) or a Jovanian-Terran, if you must label me.

    Now, before my fellow Jovanians come to Earth and conquer your puny planet, I would suggest that all of you:

    1.) pay me homage,

    2.) send me $1,000 protection money so that I tell my fellow Jovanians not to enslave you,

    3.) if your cash reserves are low, at least send me 10 pounds of Haribo Gummibärchen, and if you don’t have access to that, then 10 pounds of Riesen, Mamba, or Laffy Taffy candies can get you right with Jovanians.

    You will want to do this because Jovanian anti-discrimination leaders aren’t as forgiving as Reverends Jesse and Al.

    And don’t pull that logic of my not having lived on Jupitar (maybe I have, maybe I haven’t), because I feel Jovianian, and that’s all that matters.

    Why is it, when I look at those pictures, I hear Julie Andrews singing “The hills are alive?”

    I am White Bread, therefore I am!

    How’d you like to be a wonk in the ACLU, heading in to work this morning, your cup of Charbucks close at hand, and you click on the e-news and see this story that a WHITE woo-man has been “passing” as black, and ALL y-all got sucked right in!

    Liberals, by nature, hope for the very worst in EVERY situation, and sometimes are rewarded by finding the worst, as they suspected, usually when they are pumping out the outhouses at the local state parks. But they NEVER look under their own skirts or their own beds, and they NEVER see the monsters that most of us dealt with back when we were 5 or 6 years old!

    Remember in “Blazing Saddles,” the scene where the “bad guys” are recruiting “heavies” to wipe out Rock Ridge, and they see the dark skin that was just a result of “not washing up after the weekly cross burning?”

    That’s what we have here in Liberal circles… suddenly, someone has looked under the sheets, and whatever did they find?

    “Where’s the White Women?”

    Seems that they are right here in the middle of the ACLU, sucking on a BLACK teat, talking a BLACK game, denying their WHITE roots… I don’t know… because they (SHE) figure (S) that soul food and Mo-town music means more than blood.

    It’s kinda comforting that, for once, this ISN’T happening to a Republican!

    I am thinking of self-identifying as the offspring of two black sharecroppers in the Arkansas Delta who grew up to be a dashing, debonair adventurer and soldier of fortune. I’ll get Brian Williams to write my memoirs.

    Trigger warning: my memoirs may include a chapter in which I describe (graphically, no need for good taste here) the night at the Arkansas governor’s mansion when I cuckolded the young Bill Clinton, one of those times when he was “working late at the office.”

    By the way, what’s the difference between “self-identification” and lying anyway?

    Here’s an interesting article about histrionic personality disorder, which is often found in her kind of behavior.

    I’m not schooled in psychology. To me, it’s not so much a science as a labeling exercise. You know, it’s weak on identifying cause, process, and effect (the Phase-2 problem).
    However, life experience shows that aberrant behaviors clearly follow identifiable paths.

    You old hands here may recall my series on Prog canon. Those items were intended to be political; but at heart, I think they are deeply psychological, aberrantly psychological, not some kind of “new normal.”

    No, I’m not saying that leftists are all crazy.
    However, there’s no reason to accept the proposition that their ideas and motivations are normal.

    ^aberrantly
    Good word, Doug.
    It helps classify moonbat behavior and thought. I’m not even sure most of their behavior is thought, at least not logical thought, but an almost automatic response to uncontrolled emotion, and it is not connected to the emotion of the survival instinct.
    Somewhere in their brains is a missing ground wire.
