thunderbird8804: From the Hitchens article on the tea party, funny stuff.


I'd hardly call that funny, informative and insightful, sure, but funny? I don't find any of this stuff funny except in the mocking way. I feel like I'm living in the civil rights era where the word ni**er was a Conservative staple. I have live 30 some odd years and I have never seen such ignorance take center stage and bask in what they believe to be righteous, something as disgusting as pure evil and stupidity, and to have it given air time in our media outlets.

Obama is full of empty rhetoric and showmanship.


And what if he were? That means it's OK for the tea party? I thought the tea party was supposed to be better than the establishment politicians. So if Obama is full of empty rhetoric, I would think the tea party would elevate itself above that crap, and start dialogue with some depth.

"But HE did it TOO" stopped working for me when I was about 6 years old.

They are for limited government, fiscal responsibility and personal freedom.

If that was REALLY what they were for? Nothing.

But when they promote making being gay a crime, how can you claim limited government or personal freedom as two of their platform positions?

Republicans did such a bad job at governmenting that the people of the U.S. elected a muslumcommiefascist who was born in Kenya. So they changed their names and became community organizers ( whom they despise).

You posted that. Thread 5480421 (new window). You posted that you wanted a government solution to national transportation, and then posted a quote from the head of the government stating that government is not the solution to our problems. And we still don;t have a private rail network... it has to be a nationalized thing.

If you don't want to be called out on hypocrisy, don't be hypocritical and then accuse others of hypocrisy.

Igor Jakovsky: Jackpot777 Quote 2011-02-03 02:47:50 PM
I have a challenge for you all.

Find me a picture from a Teabagger function with more than two black people in frame, not counting the staff at the function's location.

12.4% of the population identified as black / African American in the 2010 census. And 2.5% more were self-identified as mixed race. That's well over 45 million people.

How hard could it be? Easy, reasonably difficult, or trying to find Waldo in an image that hasn't had Waldo added to it yet?

OK

Not hard really


Nice. I'd like some more info, if you don't mind.

I did notice the hand-written 'GODS' on the t-shirt of the first image (and I did just ask for one) is repeated (twice) in the second image. And all the black people are wearing similar white t-shirts.

Are they advocating a particular website or organization other than that of the Tea Party?

I'll put it another way. When I was on the streets protesting it was for good reason, war, torture, Patriot Act, Homeland Security, fascism. What are these people protesting? Half of the things they are protesting are things they supported just a few years ago (government expansion for one deficits for another), the other half are Health Care for their country-mates, socialism, nevermind the fact that America is and has been very socialistic for decades, bail outs, even though it was Bush who created them, ect.

Yeah, you people keep saying that, but apparently you're full of shiat.

Link (new window)

On the surface, it appears that Hartsock cleverly egged on some moonbat protesters, in a desperate attempt to provide some false equivalence with leading conservatives like Sarah Palin and Sharron Angle. However, the damaging claim he makes in his video's title is belied by the footage, which actually shows the most reprehensible, racially-charged suggestion being made by unidentified people outside of the protest. If this video was from a Tea Party event, I expect Hartsock (or his influential mentor, Andrew Breitbart) would be the first to point this out.

When will you people learn to avoid anyone even tangentially connected to Breitbart? They'll give you just enough talking points so you can regurgitate them, then you look stupid when it's all exposed as a fraud.

austin_millbarge: /thinks wearing the flag as clothing is massively disrespectful.


I wonder sometimes what people in other countries think of us and our obsession with the Star Spangled Banner. I mean, you can argue that you see the Union Jack on a lot of clothing but at the same time it's symmetrical and graphically interesting to look at. I think that whenever the flag was redesigned they could've done well to hire someone with OCD to do it.

CSB- One of my German cousins told me that she feels really uncomfortable going over to our aunt's house because there are little American flags everywhere or chotskis with red white and blue themes all over them. I'll be honest, I felt uncomfortable going over to her house during the Bush years myself what with all the war drumming. I still feel uncomfortable going over what with the Palin worship.

Dixie_Normous: antidisestablishmentarianism: F*cking baby boomers. Can we blame them for everything that has gone wrong in the world from the 60's until now? First they were hippies, now they are the extreme opposite or just apathetic.

Don't blame me. I was born in 1958. I was a little child in the 60's; a high schooler in the 70's and I hate about 80% of the people my age and older with their regoddamndiculous money grubbing ways and their hate of younger people (who I think will do much better than we did - smarter than when we were their age), their inability to take change, their ignorance and their arrogance, their intolerance, their hate of other races... I also hate their fat little hands, their huge gunts, the fact they can't walk two steps without wheezing and needing their Rovers or whatever those things are called (I could kick one of them in the gunt, watch them fall and then run circles around them while they roll around on the floor unable to stand without help).

Remember folks, liberal protests are so much less racist/crazy/violent. It's the new civility.

And in addition to the calls for lynching Clarence Thomas (and his wife!) and sending him "back to the fields", sending Alito (a native born Italian-American US citizen) "back to Sicily", my favorite is the old white woman dressed all in purple who challenged O'Reilly do a duel.

But yeah FarKos, left/liberals are all sane and civil. And it's not like all those recent violent incidents - Stack, Lee, and even to a considerable extent Loughner - were from lefties. Keep telling yourselves that.

Arab Lover: Conservatives simply lack the capacity for wit. When they try to make a joke it's always awkward and square.


Hmmm, I'm going to go ahead and, uh, disagree with you on that, yeah. It seems to me that liberals would be much less happy considering they are all on Section 8 housing, WIC, AFDC, Medicare, Social Security and addicted to daytime television, untaxed Funyons and generic cigarettes.

Conservatives would seem to be much happier since they all have suped-up Hummers and are the VP's of Fortune 500 lawn service companies that pay $1000/hr. for them to swim naked with undera ge boys and guzzle sweet tea.

grotto_man: More gratuitous bashing from FarKos, surprise, surprise.

Did it ever occur that they deliberately took a picture of a single person wearing flag clothes, very likely the only one? You don't see anyone around her dressed that way, do you? Not that non-Tea Partiers never dress in flag clothes.

Nor has it occurred to anyone else that this crowd might skew older because younger folks might have work and childcare commitments that preclude traveling to DC for a townhall?

As far as the "OMG They're all white crap", there are non-white Tea Partiers, they're certainly open to people of all ethnicities, and it's a massive display of left/liberal racism in invalidating a political movement because it's "too white" (a practice that would NEVER be applied to mostly black/latino/etc movements).

The Tea Party is a national embarrassment. They ride their fat asses around on government scooters carrying misspelled, racist, contradictory signs wearing XXXL American flag clothes and founding fathers costumes. They are nothing more than corporate ass-kissers and Republicans who vote Republican, run as Republicans, and use all the stupid Republican catch phrase slogans but won't call themselves Republicans.

If you love America and war so much why not shut the fark up and pay your taxes? You people are lizards.
