Rachel Maddow Cites ‘Excellent And Profane’ Mommyblog On California Anti-Immigrant Idiots (Video)

Rachel Maddow Cites 'Excellent And Profane' Mommyblog On California Anti-Immigrant Idiots (Video)  You know when you’re a kid and your name is in the paper because you won 2nd place in the Pinewood Derby, and your mom clips it and puts it in a scrapbook and you tell all your friends? That’s how we feel about Rachel Maddow reading a full paragraph — not just a three-word snippet — from a story in Yr little mommyblog, recipe hub and pony meme repository, Wonkette.com. It’s a thrill, like Navin Johnson seeing his name in the new phonebook and just knowing he’s really arrived, he’s somebody now.

Never mind that 30 years later that clipping in the paper just leaves you wondering whether you really need to keep that old yellow piece of newsprint, it’s still a thrill, and we’re going to savor it. Maddow used our piece on the anti-immigrant jerkwads in Murietta, California, as part of a long setup to her interview with Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, which we have below in the longform clip; for just the Wonkenpart, we have the short clip below, which we sincerely hope the nice folks at NBC won’t nuke.

And yes, the immigration thing is a tragedy. But we got mentioned on Rachel Maddow!

And here’s the full 23-minute segment with the interview; the Wonkpart starts at about 5 minutes in:

We showed our mom.

    I should get Wonkette tattooed on my ass. I bet more people see that than the phone book these days.

    • But should I let my fingers do the walking?

        Not unless you want MsAnthrope to scratch your eyes out.

      Look any preschooler will tell you that if you mix up all the colors you will get brown every time.

      • justamakanik

        I think that’s probably the biggest concern the protesters have.

  • goonemeritus

    I think the time has come to ask whether the world reallyneeds any other news source other than Wonkette.

      Throw in The Daily Show for balance, and I’m with you 110%!

    I live in Southern California and am deeply ashamed. Not all of us are xenophobic, hateful bigots.

  • WA Bishop

    Not just a passing reference or citation but called out specifically, Wonkette dot com [pause]. Anyway, Rachel Maddow reads the same blog as me! #fapfapfap

  • KatieAnnieOakley

    (Keyborged again.) I had to rewind and pause that headline and help my wife parse it out. (She does the same for me when it’s Chinese, I is total illerate in her native tounge…) All those idiots yelling dredged up memories of some yahoo yelling “Go bach to China” at her at the Safeway, so we had to have an extended conversation about what dicks white people can be. We love Rachel, and such as this place too.

  • crummett

    Our little Wonkette is growing up! We’re so proud!

  • Chick_Tract_Fil_A

    oh. ihopeihopeihope she saw my comments!

  • Brendan_M

    Yeah, watching Rachel for years it has been obvious she reads Wonkette. Nice to hear her admit it.

  • Duckler

    I cheered that live like I was a part of something, even though I don’t know any of you personally. But I gave you money like thrice and DokZoom has upvoted my internet things at times.

  • glasspusher

    I would just like to say, I was reading teh Wonkette long before it was cool. How did your pinewood derby go? Me and my older bro helped my younger bro when he was in it (me and the older one never did it, perhaps it was after our time) and the day of the race, it looked like every other kid had their dad pay a design and fab team 5 grand to do their cars. No, I’m not bitter…

  • fauxpinky

    Well-deserved shout-out. Great job Wonkette. And Maddow is totally awesome…

    That photo of the woman screaming with the sign about “giving our children diseases”—–turn it into a black and white still and it could have been taken in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957.
