Origins of the Tea Baggers


From Network, 1976. Gerald Ford was President.

Add in a dollop of racism, a hefty bag of ignorance, four conspiracy theories, and a tax scam. Place in large corporate payola cauldron, and percolate through Fox News. Season with blast email and garnish with a Bible quote, Ayn Rand, or your own theories about economics, law, and the United Nations. Goes well with Stupid on a Stick. Serve with a hot American bottle of whine.

People should be angry, but they should be angry at the right things.

Fox News and the rest are very good at getting people angry at the wrong things.

And that's the problem.

I'm sorry, but I can't help but giggle every time I read the term 'tea baggers'.

Do you think they even have an *inkling* that it has an alternative (and very, very dirty) meaning?

Teabagging on Wikianswers

Some do, but remember that a lot of these folks think Iraq bombed us on 9-11 and that taxes are a violation of the U.S. Constitution. They live in their own world and wait for End Times, where they will stand at the right hand of Lyndon LaRouche.

Ohhh! Those would be the people who keep telling me that Canada is a communist country because we have 'socialized' medicine.

One of them threatened to punch me in the face after I (jokingly) said "Don't make us come down there and burn down your Whitehouse again".

Years ago an idiot knuckle-dragging hillbilly who was accusing us of trespassing ('cept he didn't own the unposted land we were on) told us the reason nobuddy could come on the stripmine where he was yee-hawing was 'cuz of the time he plastered a kid with his four-wheeler. (Which was the little kid's fault, not the idiot driver's, according to him.)

I just teabagged that kid!

Giggle smirk.

He went on to repeat the claim that he had "teabagged" a five year-old, while I continued with great effort to hold back the laughter, asking him whether he didn't have to register with the police after something like that.

He never got it.

Neither do these lackwits.
