A wingnut wears a “National Tea Party Convention” T-shirt at a KKK rally — er, at the “National Tea Party Convention” — today in Nashville, Tenn. Politico unsurprisingly remarks of the convention that the “roughly 600 attendees … came primarily from the South and were largely white and older.” A recent poll shows that almost a quarter of those who identify themselves as Repugnicans want their state to secede from the Union. I say to them: Don’t let the red, white and blue door hit your treasonous, free-loading asses on your way out, bitches!
“‘Tea Party’ Movement: Who Are They and What Do They Want?” asks the Christian Science Monitor.
You can read the article if you please, but there’s no need.
I can answer those two questions. Handily.
Who are the “tea baggers”?
The “tea party” “movement” is not a “movement” and it’s nothing new.
The “tea party” douche bags are the same people who dubbed the Gore-Lieberman team “Sore Loserman” when Democrat Al Gore won the popular vote in 2000 but the White House went to loser Repugnican George W. Bush anyway.
These assbites were the losers of the 2000 election, but they called the other side — the winners — the losers. The sore losers.
They threw such a tantrum to have their guy installed in the White House, even though he’d lost the election, that there was no national outcry, as there should have been, when the radical-right-tilted U.S. Supreme Court, in its infamous 5-4 vote, installed Gee Dubya as “president.”
The “tea baggers” are, in two words, sore losers. OK, three words: sore fucking losers.
Not only can they not accept it when they lose elections, but they’re white supremacists, too. Look at the news coverage of “tea parties” and the Repugnican National Convention and the “National Tea Party Convention” (which is going on as I type this sentence) and other wingnut gatherings. They look just like Ku Klux Klan gatherings sans the burning cross. You see a sea of lily-white faces.
I’m a blue-eyed white guy, and these Stepford “patriots” give me the fucking creeps.
What do the “tea baggers” want? They want nothing short of the democratically elected President Barack Obama removed from office, whether it’s done bloodlessly or not, although most of them probably prefer blood (as long as it’s not their own, of course). They hate Obama doubly because he is a Democrat and he is black. To them he’s like a black Bill Clinton, for fuck’s sake.
The “tea baggers” can’t come right out in “polite” company and call Obama a nigger, so they use code for “nigger,” such as that he is a “Muslim” or a “socialist” or that he isn’t a U.S. citizen or that he actually is on the side of the “terrorists.” Or they even say, with a straight face, that Obama is the “racist.”* (That kills me: white supremacists calling their victims “racist.”)
These “tea baggers” proclaim themselves “patriots,” yet they would, if they c0uld, shit and piss upon the will of the majority of the American voters (53 percent of the American voters voted for Barack Obama to only 46 percent for Repugnican John McCainosaurus) and put their own stupid white man (or maybe Sarah Palin-Quayle, who is a stupid white man in a woman’s body) in the White House.**
“No, they wouldn’t do that,” you protest?
Oh, really? They already did — in 2000!
The majority of the “tea baggers” also want to impose a Taliban-style “Christian” patriarchy and theocracy on the entire nation. They want to completely reverse all of the gains made by women, by non-whites, by non-“Christians” and by non-heterosexuals. They want the return of the “good old days,” when stupid, rich, white, “Christian,” presumedly heterosexual men ran the show. You know, the “good old days,” when an uppity Negro never could have been elected as president of the United States.
Who are the “tea baggers”?
They’re fucktarded traitors, the progeny of the fucktarded traitors whom we blue-staters failed to polish off in the Civil War, that’s who they are.
They succeed as far as they do only because too many non-“tea baggers” naively believe that the treasonous “tea-bagging” fascists can be reasoned with, that we really can have some fucking “bipartisan” national Kumbaya.
No, the “tea baggers” cannot be reasoned with, and no, there will be no Kumbafuckingya.
The “tea baggers” are our national stain that persists even after the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement.
You cannot reason with a stain.
You can only remove it.
*This past week Politico reported:
A new poll of self-identified Republicans released Tuesday shows a large slice of the GOP believes President Barack Obama is a “socialist” who was not born in this country, should be impeached, wants the terrorists to win and only won the 2008 election because ACORN “stole” it for him.
The survey of 2003 self-identified Republicans, who typically trend much more conservative than voters who “lean” Republican, was conducted by Research 2000 for the liberal blog Daily Kos.
According to the poll, 63 percent of Republicans believe Obama is a socialist; 39 percent think Obama should be impeached; 24 percent said Obama wants “the terrorists to win”; and 31 percent agreed with the statement that Obama is “a racist who hates white people.” [Never mind that he is half-white himself, that his mother was white and that he was raised by white people…]
Those numbers are just a portion of the results from the poll that paints the GOP as much more socially conservative — and in some cases conspiratorial — than most analysts would be willing to grant.
According to the survey, 36 percent of respondents do not believe the president was born in this country, and 21 percent think the liberal advocacy group ACORN stole the election for Obama.
Meanwhile, nearly a quarter of the Republicans polled, 23 percent, want their state to secede from the union.
Those polled also showed strong opposition to the expansion of gay rights.
Fifty-five percent said gays should not be allowed to serve openly in the military, while 77 percent opposed gay couples getting married and 68 percent believe gay couples should not receive “any state or federal benefits.” In addition, 73 percent said openly gay men and women should not be allowed to teach in public schools….
Fifty-one percent of those polled believe sex education should not be taught in schools; 77 percent want creationism taught in schools; 31 percent want contraception outlawed; and 34 percent believe birth control is “abortion.”
Those polled showed excitement for this fall’s midterm election, as 83 percent said they plan to vote.
Among those surveyed, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is the favorite candidate for the 2012 presidential election…. Asked whether they thought Palin is more qualified than Obama to serve as president, 53 percent said yes.
**This is what the wingnuts attempted to do in Venezuela in April 2002: forcibly replace the democratically elected brown-skinned socialist President Hugo Chavez with their own unelected right-wing light-skinned “president,” against the will of the majority of the people of Venezuela. The right-wing traitors in Venezuela failed because the people rose up against them and they returned Chavez to power within three days.
This is why the wingnuts demonize Chavez: he survived a U.S.-backed right-wing coup attempt that few, if any, democratically elected progressive Latin American leaders before him survived.
