“Just Call Me Hussein”: The Meme

Feb 28, 2008 by

Thanks to everyone that has participated in the latest MOMocrats Smackdown: “Just Call Me Hussein” Day.

Why all the fuss? Some ig’nant fools apparently think it’s helpful to their cause to liken Barack Obama to a “terrorist” because his middle name is “Hussein.” And we ain’t havin’ none of that. Why? Because “bitch is the new black,” and we? Are bitches.

We’ve decided to extend the reach of this important blog action by making “Just Call Me Hussein” a meme. If you are reading this and haven’t posted, consider yourself tagged. All you have to do is post your “Hussein name” in the title of your blog and share a story about how someone tried to make you feel bad about your name. (See examples below.) Help put childish bullies like Bill Cunningham in his place by declaring yourself a “Hussein!”

When you post

—whenever you post—be sure to link us so we can find you. Now, go! Spread that meme far and wide, sistahs (and brahs)! Bitches get shit done!

  8. Just call me Mini Hussein Van Bohemian. Whew! Glad I didn't hyphenate when I got married! "Mini Hussein Hottotrot-Van Bohemian" sounds really dumb!


  9. I usually do not jump on bandwagons and at first I was happy to change my pen name middle name. That was until I saw that distasteful video posted in one of these links. It went right over my head at first. Hillary's mocking followers, ya see. I am not prone to follow the leader and feel real bad that I feel into this trap.

    I decided to follow those who are using buttons with Barack (insert rose) Obama buttons. I did not like the middle finger icon above nor the Democrat one. I am a people not a party. Senator Obama is a gentleman, not given to giving people the finger, ya see. That is New York Yankee fan behavior. I prefer California Angels laid back loving kind myself.

    Attitudes are contagious ya see.
