‘You’ve Got a Friend’? Not on Twitter, old ‘white guy’ James Taylor

Oh, dear. James Taylor is trending on Twitter this afternoon, after his performance at President Obama’s Inauguration.

And, not in the good way, for some. “Your smiling face”? More like your giggling madly face.

Newark Mayor Cory Booker is a fan.

But, then again, he also liked the Inaugural poem. No, really.

Rep. Cantor liked Taylor’s performance. As Twitchy reported, he was not a fan of the poem, though.

Some snarky Twitter users bring the funny after Taylor’s performance.

Others? Not so much. They just aren’t fans and make no bones about it.

Ah, youth! Time for another binder? President Obama is having trouble with his binders full of women. Looks like his binders full of old, white guys need to head to the used binder store, too.

Zing! Progressives of pallor strike again.

Of course, out came the oh-so-post-racial remarks, just like with Kelly Clarkson’s performance.

    t’m surprised they didn’t have him sing “Steamroller”. Would be more appropriate for this administration’s plans

      Yeah…especially the live version with the really racy lyrics…can’t post ’em here, as I’m sure the moderator won’t let them through…they do start out with ‘chicken-chokin’, mother…..and I’ll leave it at that…LOL!

    Can someone explain to me why so many white people berate the white race. I just don’t fucking get it.

    • rinodino

      Because of some of the dark evil history that the “White race” in America and other nations have done to people with darker skin tone for many years, not anymore, but some of the BS that was in this country less than 100 years ago,is still mind boggling, and it def. has a white guilt emotion to so many white people.

      Small example: The infamous american newspaper pictures from the 20’s and 30’s of a black man hung/lynched from a tree, with a bunch of white men smiling for the camera, proud of what they had done, because he looked at a white woman wrong or something insane like that, never were charged or put in jail for anything, just smiling for the picture for the world to see…. those type of images and emotions do not go away easy or fast.

      • Finrod Felagund

        Real answer: because douchebags like dave travis here keep bringing up old racial divisions that ended before any of us were born, so they can keep the black people on the Democratic reservation.

        • rinodino

          Sigh, you guys just don’t get it, which is why your party is going the way of BYE BYE

          • Zanshi

            We don’t care if the Republicans go bye-bye, you brainless whack-job. They’ve abandoned conservatives and libertairans the day they forced Newt to resign as Speaker.
            And to educate you further, Biffy, my boy, the correct saying is “going the way of the Dodo”. Imbecillic leftist troll.

          • Finrod Felagund

            It’s cute how you believe that. It’ll make the elections of 2014 and 2016 that much more fun for us.

          • Harlan Hikaru Fox

            And you don’t seem to get that nothing positive comes from your idiotic revenge fantasies and just wanting to see other people get hurt. Things don’t get better for you just because somebody you don’t like gets dragged down. Grow up and be an individual.

        I have no white guilt. My ancestors came through Ellis Island and had nothing to do with slavery, KKK, discrimination or anything remotely related to racism. My family experienced their own forms of discrimination when they arrived here although I will admit, much as I despise you and your incessant trolling, it was nowhere near what black people have experienced. Anyway, I don’t feel guilt and will never feel guilt and have not passed any guilt onto my kids. It has to stop. There is no chance of ever moving this country “forward” if we are forever living in the past. Those who suffer from white guilt are morons.

        • The_Dread_Pirate_Roberts

          Ever hear of NINA, kid? No Irish Need Apply? Or the discrimination against those swarthy Dagoes or those disgusting Bohemians or God forbid, the evil Joos. It was the establishment against everyone, but we changed it. MLK changed it. Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton inflamed it for their own monetary gain.It’s time to move to a color blind society. Fuck Forward. I saw what Forward meant in Eastern Europe. It’s statism and control and has nothing to do with fairness or equality. GE and Soros and Buffet are playing the average Dem for the saps they are.

          • wwbdinct

            Hold on there…I think you have misread my post altogether. Please read it again. My use of “forward” was meant to be sarcastic. I am talking about a color blind society. So I’ll reword what I said to “our country will never advance if we are forever living in the past”.

      • The_Dread_Pirate_Roberts

        The people smiling in the picture were all democrats.

        Not every white person has white guilt. I’ve never lynched anyone, never owned a slave and I don’t feel the need to apologize for anything that was done long before I was born. Republicans have been the ones to end slavery and the KKK wasn’t started by Republicans either. If you want to hate Republicans by all means go right ahead, but don’t mix your history and don’t accuse us of hate when you can read Liberal posts all day long that have nothing good/nice to say about Conservatives. And finally, you’re right images of someone being hung don’t ever go away, but remember, those white guys who were doing the hanging were all Democrats.

        My ancestors were in Ireland when this took place, then came here to have the shit kicked out of them, murdered, discriminated against and all that good stuff. But NOT ONE OF US blames those in the past who did this. We picked ourselves up and became successful powerful and we don’t wish harm on anyone. We are grateful for this country and we LOVE OURSELVES. KISS ME I’M IRISH.

    • CherDash

      Because they’ve been taught self-hate in government schools for the last several decades.

      Where’s your WHITE GUILT, brother?

    • conservativechick

      I don’t understand how they forget or purposely ignore that BO is half white? Actually, he’s mostly white, even though I don’t want to claim his sorry butt as one of ‘ours.’ His Mom deserted him to pursue her own desires and his baby daddy abandoned him, like most do. He was raised by the old WHITE people in a mostly white neighborhood and attended mostly white schools. He’s WHITE.

      They only really hate themselves. Need therapy.

  • sleazyrider

    Sorry Dave..I don’t feel it…Probably because I had nothing to do with it..was it wrong? YES…Asking me to feel some type of guilt solely on the color of my skin..never happen.

    • rinodino

      Not asking you to feel anything, your question was WHY do many feel guilt? I’m just telling you the why part, it’s up to you to feel how you want, but if you want somebody to respect your feelings, you have to respect those that feel guilt about what happened in the past.

  • TocksNedlog

    Always remember and never forget: the people that are dissing James Taylor voted FOR Obama.

    JT didn’t impress me in his Chapel Hill drug days………………………………

  • sleazyrider

    No..that wasn’t my question…read it again…I’m very proud of my race and heritage….No need to berate it..I wasn’t alive then …Thats like blaming an entire race for the actions of a few….just come out say what you really mean..

  • HWarrior13

    Ok,since I’m not 100, can someone PLEASE tell me WHO this guy is ?

  • sleazyrider

    This old man is the product of liberal parents from Chapel Hill, he was doomed at conception.

  • notenoughtime

    Taylor is just relishing the resurrection of the love, peace and togetherness 60’s that has led us to doom and destruction!
