You All Ought to be Ashamed of Your Damn Selves

by Fred

I seriously thought this video would be more disturbing than it was. My drunken brother and I thought it was disturbing– and we used to throw cats at each other. Not much bothers us.

I posted this on facebook, and the comments are all sweet and mild, like, “What software is that?” I guess facebook users aren’t disturbed by a rich white guy swinging a whip at a negro public servant.

I’m not really admonishing you friends of The Fred Effect. You guys are excellent. I’m admonishing the YouTube and facebook people. You are jaded. Too many Transformer movies, probably.

Incidentally, if I’ve seemed distant lately, please remember that I love you all. I try to get around to as many of your sites as I can. Cartooning takes much more time than writing. I like the hard work, and I’m glad that you all don’t have to read so much text from me. Text is okay, but I’m just not feeling very “text”y lately.

More cartoons to come!

I’m more offended by Romney’s real life singing. I’ve heard mating cats sound better.

This is hysterically funny. But then, maybe I’m a little twisted.

perhaps too many people have forgotten history, thanks to so many shiny distracting things that need to be PURCHASED. Those who forget history, etc, etc. Anyhoo, it was a really good cartoon though Fred, and even I was sitting there admiring how you mixed all the voices together, and wondering how you did it. My bad.

Why admonish the Facebook people?
You know they’re not real, right?

I assumed the whip was a bit of extra percussion for the music, rather than an instrument to punish the president. They make a good duo. How about calling them Uncle Remus and Brer Rabbit?

I thought it was pretty hilarious. But I am a little bit worried Romney might use that whip on his dog Seamus. Um, if Seamus were still alive that is…

. I cannot say I have ever been able to be, or have felt, ashamed that I am a natural-born citizen of the United States of America. NOR that my country is what it is. I only hope that a year from now I will have cause to be as proud of myself as a citizen of such a great nation as I am of my country. I will never choose to be anything other. And WOULD never wish to be anything other than a young adult with the freedom to say what I please, what I believe, no matter who is in office or what he or she does– this is a given.

I think it’s funny, too, Fred, but what I like about your posts is that since you couch them in humour, they may also give pause for reflection to people who think there are never moments when they absolutely should feel ashamed and wish to change certain attitudes and actions of their fellow Americans. I am an ex-pat American, married to a British-Australian; I certainly have moments when I hang my head for both countries in moments of shame. This does not mean I don’t love these countries. I take a dim view of the wilfully blind who refuse to criticise the land of their birth when the criticism is justified, and may help to make much needed change in the culture; there are times when it must be acknowledged that the emperor is quite naked! I think the ability to reflect dispassionately upon a country one loves, and which one is a citizen of, is a fundamental necessity to being a good citizen of the world – which, if you are going to travel and live overseas, you need to be. When we engage defensively in rhetoric, constantly preening ourselves and saying how “great” we are – in short, being blindly patriotic, bombastic and vain – it usually means we are short on self-reflection, self-criticism, and the ability to understand in a meaningful way how our attitudes and behaviours impact on others who are not just like us (which, guess what, turns out to be MOST OF THE WORLD). Unfortunately, there’s a lot of that going around, common as dirt, which is why I comment upon it here. Thanks for all your funny and clever and poignant work, Fred! Cheers, Tina

Most of us were link our selves at Facebook, and I consider it as social community, without any criticism/ discrimination from one another… I don’t think that it provide a special tribute to all the white man than black, everyone is level and can be a great friends…

You’re exactly right; it’s “stubborn pride”. Having to take food stamps means you couldn’t make enough money on your own, it makes us think we’re “losers” and is a tremendous blow to our ego…

Very creative video, very funny! I am quite frustrate with “Obama’s” performance as he sit as the president… Hopefully a person who will change to him will grab a great opportunity and make itself worthy…

The video made me laugh. But I feel a bit of guilt. President of the United States is one of the characters.

I found the video funny. But using President characters made me a bit of depress.

Dr Fred-enstein,
3 weeks is too long for you to be away. The blogosphere is blander for you absence. Get back to business before Knucklehead does a “Whatever happened to…” about YOU.
