I find it interesting that he is an anti-tax tea party member yet lists his community's library and sports complex as likes. I can't access his wall.
How did you find him op?
We have a mutual friend.....UH OH!
He seems like a racist to me. It's not just Obama he hates, but also Michelle Obama, about whom he tells the falsehood that she was disbarred for embezzlement, and Herman Cain, who enrages him for out-polling Ron Paul.
Without the racism, there's no logic to his irrational perspective. Not that racism is logical, it's just the only explanation that makes any sense.
Also, he must be hoping the FBI or Secret Service will put him on a watch list, or he wouldn't have his privacy controls set so everyone can see his wall and his info.
Ron Paul supporters scare the fuck out of me as much as the people who worship Michelle Bachman.
Anybody know a crazy ass Ron Paul fangurl? They're fucking nuts. The caravan to places like Florida and Iowa to take part in straw polls which is the only way Paul old, crusty ass gets any attention.
They're like the Tea Partiers but only smaller and most of them are batshit crazy.
Wasn't the girl with the backwards "B" on her face a Ron Paul supporter who got let go for being TOO crazy?
I found a post where he suggests Obama (Ovomit) should be tried and executed and I reported him for hate speech.
It really does seem like a lot of the anti-Obama sentiment is fueled by racism. Pretty sad.
OP, is your mutual friend aware of this guy's racism?
I would start to wonder....
Holy Shit! We're from the same hometown!
And we have a mutual "friend"!
I can't believe this freak is from Studio City, California. I didn't realize there are such freaks in the Los Angeles area. You can google him as well.
I encourage people to page down his wall and, at minimum, report this post.
OVOMIT must be jailed, impeached, and EXECUTED if we are to save America.
[quote]I find it interesting that he is an anti-tax tea party member yet lists his community's library and sports complex as likes.
I find it par for the course. These are the dumbest people in our country. Hypocrisy is part of the platform.
I hope if a Republican wins, whatever tax benefits he was looking forward to only applies to heteros.
I reported that message, too. His racism is pretty overt. He has one post on there to the effect that he 'likes them robes' or some shit. It's in reference to some Muslim cartoon, but you know it's innuendo for his kkklan leanings. He also allows people to make homophobic comments, and refers to Obama as a 'fag'. I'm not even sure he's a real person, at least not really gay.
Ha - his page can't be found, now.
It is important to remember that not all cocksuckers are Democrats, but that all Republicans are cocksuckers.
I think gay Republicans are a pathetic breed; genuinely pathetic.
I don't even like the Democrats, but to embrace the Republicans and think you have a modicum of dignity is pretty pathetic. I don't give a shit if the Republicans they know don't care if someone is gay. If you support a party whose platform specifically targets you and you still support them because you're THAT selfish, THAT greedy and THAT desperate to join in on the vilification of other groups (including your own) then there is something wrong with you.
The "fiscal conservative" defense is complete bullshit considering the cornerstone of the GOP platform is corporate welfare. You'd have to have a single-digit IQ to think privatizing gains and socializing loss to the tune of over a trillion dollars or that tax cuts to ONLY the wealthiest 2% during two wars, is considered "fiscally conservative."
They're as pathetic as the "govt: hands off my medicare!" crowd.
R16 what are you talking baout - I just found his page, and under the ridiculous picture of Obama and Geitner kissing one of his "friends" writes "Well for the most part we all knew he was a fag!! Sooner or later the truth always comes out!!"
Then another "friend" writes "Someone shoot them please."
Now that should not go unnoticed.
This is one fag we could do without. Maybe he'll choke on one of his cookies.
And he's named "Brent."
His parents must have known he'd be a nasty queen when he dropped out of the womb.
Absolutely, r18. I work with lot of Republicans who consider me a friend, but there was a big dust-up recently after about the 10th work-related party I didn't go to.
Someone tried to guilt me into it, saying they're all my friends, and I said, "No, I have no Republican friends. It's part of my job description to get along with co-workers, and that means being polite and friendly at work, but I'm not going to pretend we're really friends, because every time they vote, they vote to deny my civil rights, and the politicians they vote for want me dead or in prison.
I bet he posts on here. He is probably that sad trick that keeps following me from thread to thread.
Donate. Volunteer. Vote Democratic.
Wake up people!!
And he's a 5'8" fattie.... come on Brent, keep swallowing those cookies. You know that's how you want to go out. With a bang.
Brent Bateman is a writer, singer/songwriter, and producer hailing from the Midwestern cornfields of Illinois and Iowa. Bateman has worked in television news, radio, film, and print throughout his professional life.
Bateman has appeared in a select number of films, and was the creator and Executive Producer of his own talk show "Issues with Brent Bateman," while attending Western Illinois University in 1989.
Fresh from college, Brent spent nearly seven years working in the Riverboat casino industry, where he penned his first book, "Licensed To Steal," a behind the scenes look into the unglamorous world of the casino business.
During a brief stint as a television reporter in the late 90s, Bateman realized that his true passion was not inside a television studio creating local news.
After moving to Los Angeles in 1999, Bateman spent six years creating a web fund raising organization, Cookies To College, which is poised to raise tens of millions of dollars for students future college costs and their schools.
Bateman will appear in "The Fantasy," a feature film he's written based on his time spent in the strip club industry in Los Angeles. (2008)
His latest feature length film research for, "The Lincoln Bedroom," will take Bateman back to his home states of Illinois and Iowa, to uncover the true sexuality of the 16th President of the United States of America, Abraham Lincoln. This film will alter history.
Brent has also inked three episodes of a half hour comedy positioned for cable called "The Cleaning Files," based loosely on his year long adventure cleaning homes of the rich, the famous, the poor, and the afflicted in the Los Angeles area.
R24, I think this is him. Your poor guy has the misfortune of sharing the same name.
[italic]I reported that message, too. His racism is pretty overt. He has one post on there to the effect that he 'likes them robes' or some shit. It's in reference to some Muslim cartoon, but you know it's innuendo for his kkklan leanings.[/italic]
Uh, no dear. He believes that Barack is a Muslim. Most Republicans do.
I don't see anything on this guy's page that I haven't seen on every Right wing site out there. Nothing stands out. It's the same crap they're always pushing.
I also don't see any racism, except from the people here who theorize that everyone hates Obama because he is black. This might be the case with this man, but I don't see him actually using the word nigger, or featuring photos of Obama with a bone in his nose. It looks like the typical Liberal/Democrat = Communist, Obama is Muslim malarkey.
I can't believe you guys are getting all in a tizz about this. This is small potatoes. You guys must be really sheltered. I don't think the guy broke any Facebook rules either. I saw the Left doing this type of stuff, in regards to Bush, and rightfully so. It's just political tripe that's published every day on the internet, and in newspapers.
R26, he may have shaved and lost a little weight, but I think it's the same guy.
I was going off of the R21 link and as R25's text shows, the "Cookies to College" matches the cookies obsession on the facebook page.
The Imdb Brent also is a "singer", which also matches the facebook page.
Both he and the guy in the psycho link you show were raised in "middle America" and were "former" journalists.
Either way, the one in your link and the facebook page are loathsome pieces of shit.
It's funny how he hates Fox News.
Edwina. Let's see. I have ran 28 businesses successfully, and my family created the BOWL-A-THON formula for fundraising, which has raised hundreds of milions of dollars for chartiy, namely Junior Acheivement, and we also brought a 60 million dollar windfall to our local ecomony in 1998 for hosting the womens international bowling congress tournament. So...I know more about the econony then you will learn. My family supported hundreds of families over a six year period. Here's what I know about Islam. It's a filthy murdeorus cult, and it should be banished in Ameirca. But, it's the murderous CIA that created this so-called war on freedom. The murderous CIA trained and gave guns to the Taliban to create more wars around the world. As I have said before, it's not the united States business to police to world. Edwina...bitch slapped.
You're right r28. The pictures look so different to me but the "boardwalk" work and "cookies" stuff weaves throughout.
[quote]Brent Bateman OVOMIT must be jailed, impeached, and EXECUTED if we are to save America.
What is it with these folks? I keep hearing this bullshit impeach thing. Impeached for what? Doing the same shit Bush did?
R27 read R33. Tell me if Facebook allows you to suggest that the President should be executed to save America.
OP here I know of him through a friend. He's gay as shockiing as it may seem. Everyone should report this crazy.
I love how a poster said he doesn't see any overt racism. He called someone a "nig" and asked if Michelle was eating "chitlins" in one pic. If you read on more you will see that he is a major racist.
That pic of the other Brent Bateman is NOT him.
You guys should friend him (he friends anybody) and then out him on his wall. He hides the fact that he is gay to his phsyco followers.
Where are you seeing that he's gay?
It's human vomit like this that drove me from my hometown, Moline.
I'm sensing there's going to be a field trip!
R27, you don't see any racism on his wall?
I mean, sure, he spends much of it calling Obama racist (conservatives LOVE to accuse others of what they themselves are actually guilty of), but come on... just a sample:
In reference to a picture of Michelle Obama:
[quote]Watermellon ass gorilla tranny farted and was checking for trax.
And this one just makes no sense, it's just a spew of racism:
[quote]Another nig calling a black man racist. Hey, let's go listen to some hate music and we can call each other nigger, hoe, motherfucker, and all kinds of ignorant, ape like names all night long.
And this one:
[quote]Ray Nagin is disgrace, and a pig racist nig.
So tell me again that you don't see any racism??
I just flagged and reported this message:
[quote]The dow low homosexual, filthy muslim, usurper FRAUD in the white house must be executed.
It asked me to categorize it... and only let you choose one category. It honestly fit most of the categories... threat of violence, threat against gays, against a religion, against a race... seriously.
R44, Ron Paul is saner than most on the Republican presidential hopeful stage, but that doesn't mean he's sane.
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.
That I agree with him on a handful of issues doesn't change the fact that the REASON for thos positions tends to be dramatically different, and doesn't change the fact that he's batshit insane and flat-out wrong on many other issues. He'd be a very scary President. Extremist, for sure.
But, you know, if the choice was between Bachmann or Ron Paul, and I were forced to vote instead of abstaining, then sure, my vote would go to Ron Paul without question.
But if it's between Ron Paul and ANY Democrat ever, Ron Paul couldn't get my vote if he paid me.
Why do you consider him "batshit insane?" Do you really consider his position on the important issues to be wrong and harmful to you? Or do you just see him as being the greatest potential threat to the Democrats in the upcoming presidential election?
Are we sure this guy is gay? He sure seems to hate everyone even going so far as to call Obama a gay Muslim. He hates Jews, *nigs* and seemingly everyone else. I reported his page but how effective is that?
He's a racist, sexist, homophobic guy who pushes white privilege. You just deeply want to ignore that part. You haven't read his early newsletters, which contained a lot of blatant racism. You've probably never even heard of the John Birch society.
He supports DOMA, even though that goes against everything else he believes.
He's a complete isolationist. He's a confederate. He's against the civil rights act, social security, and medicare. He thinks we should go back on the gold standard (something that would cause an immediate global economic crash). He belives in the fantasy of supply-side/trickle-down economics.
Why on earth would you support this loon?
In RE: the Facebook loon. It really does seem to be some sort of paranoid disorder, full blown. The fact that he's gay seems incidental.
I wonder if he posts on DL. What do you think, OP?
He's not as scary as the NuJack troll.
He's not just racist, he seems like a schizo and the type to end up on a tower with a gun. He can hardly write coherent sentences.
Even Klan guys would look at him and go "what a freak!".
I love how on his website he goes on about how "Barack and Michelle Obama have single handedly pushed back race relations" yet his facebook wall would be largely blank if it wasn't for his use of racist slurs.
[quote]He's a racist, sexist, homophobic guy who pushes white privilege. You just deeply want to ignore that part.
That is quite simply blatantly untrue. I have attended several rallies for Ron Paul here in NY. Each time, there were non-white people present. In fact, the person who organized the first rally in NY was a black woman. I have also seen gay couples there who were obviously unafraid to show that they were gay. At no time did I see anyone react negatively towards any of the gays or non-white attendees. Not once.
[quote]You haven't read his early newsletters, which contained a lot of blatant racism.
Also not true. If you are being told that, take a good look at who’s saying it because they are deliberately looking to mislead you. I have been a supporter of Dr. Paul’s for about twenty-five years, and have read many things in that time that he’s written. None of it was even remotely racist. What you are referring to is a the substance of a failed attempt to discredit Ron Paul. What you are referring to was an anonymous contribution that appeared in his newsletter back in 1992. As soon as it was brought to his attention, Ron Paul declared the comments as being entirely contrary to his own beliefs. It is something that, although it was long ago proven to have no bearing on Dr. Paul or his platform, still gets trotted out by those desperate to smear him but are unable to come up with anything of factual substance to do so.
R54, it was not just one contribution to his newsletter, it was many. That you would lie in an attempt to convince people Paul is not racist is very telling.
[quote]That is quite simply blatantly untrue.
No dear, it's true. You're just deeply into your denial. It's sad and pathetic.
[quote]Each time, there were non-white people present.
As if that disproves anything. This is right up there with "I can't be racist, I have black friends!" And remember, there are gays in the audience for Michelle Bachmann. Doesn't mean she's not a raging insane homophobe.
[quote]Also not true. If you are being told that, take a good look at who’s saying it because they are deliberately looking to mislead you.
Wrong. More denial on your part. It's pretty well known, and I've read it myself, so you can really just go soak your lying head in that one. You want so badly to believe because of his anti-war stance or some other hook, that you're willfully blind to the rest of his insane batshit and bigotry. Sorry.
And I notice you're utterly silent on his recent defense of DOMA, and is general opposite to gay marriage.
Really, you need to stop drinking the Koolaid of the cult of Ron-Paul. Back away. Put down the crack-pipe.
[quote]He supports DOMA, even though that goes against everything else he believes.
His support of DOMA was because of the implications it had in terms of the separation of Church and State as stated in the Constitution. He has come down on the side of gay marriage being allowed, but that the decision is not one that should be made by the federal government since the power to do so is not specified in the Constitution.
Ron Paul voted against gay adoption in DC. How did he justify that with his 'Libertarian principles?'
Paul gets a whopping 38% from HRC.
[quote]His support of DOMA was because of the implications it had in terms of the separation of Church and State as stated in the Constitution.
That sentence makes absolutely no sense at all, logically.
[quote]He has come down on the side of gay marriage being allowed, but that the decision is not one that should be made by the federal government since the power to do so is not specified in the Constitution.
He thinks marriage should be up to the states (contradicting his support of DOMA) but is absolutely FINE with states voting away basic civil rights of a minority by banning same-sex marriage.
I'm sorry, was that supposed to be a DEFENSE of Ron Paul??
this guy rocks!!!
R55, I have read the text on the page at the URL you posted. If you read it carefully, you will see that all but one of the quotes came from people other than Ron Paul. The one quote on there that is attributed directly to him is not racist in nature.
Let’s get clear about something - the newsletter was one that allowed commentary by anonymous readers. That is what the rest of the quotes on that were drawn from. However, the author of that article appears to have written it in a way that is deliberately misleading. I’d say [italic]that[/italic] is very telling.
My post above ought to say, "by: R54" and not "by: 5."
You don't seem to grasp that giving a platforom to racism is aiding and abetting racism. You seem to bend over backwards to appologize for Ron Paul with no real reason for doing so.
So let's be really clear about something: Ron Paul is an extremist whacko. Just because he's anti-war doesn't make him a champion of the people.
I think the FB poster is going to have a mental break soon. If I were the secret service I would be watching him VERY closely. YES he's gay. I know someone who knows him and showed me his FB page. He's definetly gay.
I wonder if Obama Hater was the racist troll that kept posting on here a few months ago?
There is still one who posts here.
He's getting worse. How do I report him to the secret service?
R69, I reported it again as Hate Speech. I clicked "Credible threat of violence" where he put "Execute the president". I'm not sure how credible it is but I don't think one should be threatening the president in a public forum.
R72, I did the same thing. I think we should all do that.
I reported too.
Wow he never stops with the racism and threats against the President.
As scary as he is, so are his friends who "like" his heinous posts...
Whatever is wrong with him it's catching. We are having our own Wall St. protests here and the freepers are calling for the protesters arrests and even death for treason and un-American activity. They don't seem to understand that freedom of speech and peaceable assembly is our right. Ugly, ugly mood right now and these so-called tea party patriots are anything but American.
The wackjob hasn't posted today. Maybe he got arrested for making threats. That's pretty serious stuff he's saying
Just watched Adel on the filthy VMA's. WOW WOW WOW. That little fatty is amazing live. The rest was this ghetto, 2nd grade educated, trash party, featuring a bunch of primate monkeys screaming over a mic. Had to turn it off it was so sickening.
No he's not racist at all!
Any of you have the balls to write to him or friend him?
What R48 says.
He's going to be at Sundance??
Check out his latest rants.
Has everyone here reported his posts?
He's not going to be at Sundance. He's got delusions of granduer. He actually thinks Fox news is copying his status and making them headlines. No joke. He's been saying for years that his movie is coming out, his music, his apps. Totally crazy.
This guy seems to hate EVERYONE.
Scary, and I'm sure he posts on here, too!
oh, so he's mentally ill.
The Tea Party needs to stop proping up Allen West and Herman Cain. This "Let's find a black consevative just to equal the communist democrats" who used racism to steal the white house is not working. Here's the truth. There is NOT ONE COUNTRY in this world that is goverened by BLACKS that is not full of corruption and murder. It's just that simple. Blacks cannot govern themselves. Look at what they did to music.

YES!! Call him out on his gayness~!!! all his freaks will run in droves! This will be fun!!!
Commented and linked to his FB page....LOL Yeah educators will surely want to be involved with this nut job. POST on his charity page!! Go get this queen!
Someone needs to make a Cookies To College Facebook page with his photo..
The picture of the guy in the skull T-shirt and well known straight dude Ed O'Neil is especially creepy. Is that the Bradster?
Since this extreme weirdness has been going on for some time with no intervention from Facebook, I'm beginning to think this is being allowed to continue for a reason. Honeypot for dangerous people?
Isn't this freak an actual FB friend of the OP's?
...make that 'Brentster.'
OP here. No i don't know him. I only know a guy who used to go to H.S. with him in Illinois. My friend says this guy has seriously gone crazy in the last few years. I just posted this because i am appalled that FB will not ban this wackjob.
You can't always trust the Secret Service, OP. Some of them were in on the assassination of JFK - that's how he had no protection when he was shot.
He probably doesn't even realize how mentally disturbed he is. What kind of gay would support an anti gay canidate?
Wow this guy is 100 percent a danger to society. I would lock him up in a mental institution for his page alone. Seems parnoid, schizo and delusional. WOW
I KNOW this guy! Hung with him in the mid 80's. Also worked with him at the riverboat. He seriously used to be a normal guy. In reference..that IS him in the Quad Cities Pictures ad. He also WAS a friend of mine on FB. (in which I did report his posts) We would laugh at all he was saying because the dude is TOTALLY nuts!!!! He used to be normal when he lived in Rock Island. As soon as he moved to Studio City, he got a medical marijuana card and has completely lost his mind! He is WAY out there! It seems as though FB DID ban his page though, my buddy at work got on it the other day and he is nowhere to be found. Darn.....
And BTW, he IS gay.
Looks like OP's linked Facebook account is gone.
This guy finally got kicked off FB and has disappeared. Word is (my friend knows him) he has been locked up by the Secret service or institutionalized by his family. Just an update
That's good news.
But there are about a hundred thousand (or ten) just as scary and irrational Obama haters.
this nut is still at it...check out his voice mails...what a freak!
Is his blog still up and why hasn't the SS or CIA been to pay him a visit? That guy is dangerously insane and racist.
Well, unfortunately I just found out he was arrested for attempted murder the other day and he killed his dog, so hopefully we won't be hearing from him anymore. He truly does have a mental illness.
How did you find out about his arrest? Are there any links to new articles or arrest records? What happened?
[quote] hailing from the Midwestern cornfields of Illinois and Iowa
[italic] Quelle [/italic] surprise.
The only good thing about people from this part of the country is that they are slowly dying off and not being replaced. Most of the Repug men I know (and I'm surrounded by them) are now encouraging their wives to have as many babies as they can, vs. 2 or 3 at most a generation ago. There's a very real fear that straight WASP male-dominated culture is rapidly becoming obsolete, and that fear is tangible. The irony is that more and more, their children are fleeing this part of the country due to lack of jobs. The real death blow to them is that a lot of their kids have more evolved views of diversity.
I think it's safe to say that this story, from beginning to end, has been slightly underreported.
The Sundance part is just to much.
Wow. Very scary.
Let's hope the same fate befalls our relentless racist/homophobic/right-wing/"bi femme" multiple personality troll who has been on a rampage as of late.
Sorry to read about the dog. I hope that's the only harm he accomplished.
I heard he stabbed his boyfriend (I knew him from Illinois) to within an inch of his life and then chopped up his dog. The other poster is correct. Supposedly the boyfriend escaped the house and ran down the street. He supposedly thought they were demons.
