BronyMedic: The Memphis Tea Party held a protest in one of the more affluent, democratic portions of town - Germantown a few days ago. I managed to drive by it on a patient transport.

I felt sorry for these people.

The mean age of this group was no less than 50. These people were actually on rascals. Or had oxygen tanks. Or looked like death was several steps behind them. And they were holding up blatantly racist signs about Barack Obama the witch doctor.

So I have come to the conclusion that to solve the Tea Party problem, we just wait.


Ironically, they'll solve their own problem by continuing to vote against health care laws that are in their favour.

/and then when they're dead, we'll just pass them anyway

Zerochance: From the very start, the Tea Party has been a radical socially conservative movement. To argue otherwise is sheer ignorance. These patriots didn't give a flying pygmy fark about taxes or big government until January 20th, 2009. That's just their excuse for their reactionary butthurt to the ni-bong in power.

Hell, their stupid farking name alone outs them as the hypocritical, mouth-breathing troglodytes that they are. They're "Taxed Enough Already" at a time when a.) taxes are lower than ever and b.) they willingly vote to extend tax cuts for the uber-rich so that the budget can be balanced on their own backs. If that wasn't enough, their own bullshiat slogans out them for the morons that they are - "fix old no new?" "Keep government out of my Medicare?" For fark's sake.

Yes, the Tea Party is the putrid swan song of a generation on the outs but goddamn if they're not a wart in the ass of the Nation. They need to go the fark away.

Unrelated, but today is Tax Day and I subscribe to the Libertarian Party's FB page, and their board is a gaggle of guffaws today.

halfof33: dave2198: You were more entertaining when you pretended to be retarded. Your real self is kind of a prick, so you might want to just play dumb all the time.

Yep, people get mad at people who don't dial up the rage, and instead track down the source of the alleged slur.

Makes me a right "prick."

GOTCHA!


Right, but you were replying to a post that specifically said that the slur is actually secondary to the fact that the TEA Party paid a guy who is a member of the Family and helped sell the idea of strict legislation banning gayness from Uganda a few years back. If the guy had been *completely* respectful about his terminology he'd still be a bigoted, ignorant, medieval dick-lock of a man... who was hired by the TEA Party to talk to the crowd for a while. That guy should be uniformly denounced in every free country in the world. But here in America we don't just give him a venue to speak. We don't just avoid censoring him. We give him a nice fat podium to stand on, some TV crews, an attentive audience, and a few grand.

And then when people get upset, we have two factions. One to get mad at the guy who called these people a mean name. And another to get mad at the people who dared get upset in the first place.

Jake Havechek: I would suggest that those Tea Party critics take a look at some of the things that their TAX MONEY has been paying for in the public schools. The "Fistgate" tapes. The "Little Black Book". The annual taxpayer sponsored "transgender" events for kids, where kids are brought to mingle with adult men wearing women's clothes, and adult men involved with S&M and other interesting behaviors. The "anal sex" pamphlets and material given to kids at state-sponsored events. And there's a LOT more I could mention, but can't really without making a lot of people sick.

Bendal: A lot of us non-Teabaggers warned the Republicans back in 2008 that if they didn't throw the racists and bigots out of the Teabag Party when they had the chance, they'd end up associated with them in everyone's minds. with one guy who heard about a tea bag party and completed misunderstood.

I really cannot put into words how much I loathe social conservatives.

Kinda like how I feel about creationists, I wouldn't mind them if they simply held their views as personal beliefs. That doesn't bother me at all. What DOES bother me is that they insist on imposing these beliefs on others, often resorting to lying, violence, or passing asinine laws.

Seriously, fark them all. The fact that they hide their hatred and petty prejudices behind the "family" makes me sick.

A Tea Party tax day protest

WTF are you protesting against, you cretins????

Historically low taxes. They think they should pay more as the cost of living in a functioning society.

Wait, what's that? They think historically low taxes are too high and they've have enough of it? That's a stupid platform for a political group. There's no way a reasonable population will allow them to control the political message, let alone elect any of them into office...


Ffs. This, people.

Does anyone remember the interviews from the Tea Party protests? There was one interview in which the interviewee asserted that he was being taxed at an astronomical rate and that taxes have never been this high before. The interviewer corrected that statement and the interviewee basically shrugged.

Things they were perfectly fine with when it was a white Republican in the White House.

Duh.


The first tea parties were under George Bush, and were largely about fiscal irresponsibility. However, like any grass roots movements, and in the beginning they were, tea party protests were a diverse group of mostly conservative and libertarian people. In the beginning, they were mostly about fiscal issues. It's only latter that the tea parties were taken over by social conservatives, and just like the Republican party, fiscal conservatives and libertarians got the fark out.

So what were we protesting about? Well I was protesting against the Bush Tax cuts, and wildly unsustainable spending. I was protesting what I see as the mortgaging of my children's future for the political gain of today's politicians.

Now? The "Tea Party" my area is now closer to the westboro baptist church.

Because some signs on the internet obviously equal the majority thought of the whole movement. You know, like how those Occupiers all hate Jews and bathes.

Don't forget that based on their actions and signs, all people who support OWS
- are truthers
- shiat on police cars
- sexually assault people
- throw Molotov cocktails at police
- support hanging of Wall Street execs

On the plus side, they have cute bag dogs.

Yeah, the whole First Amendment thing, what are you going to do?

Three factions actually, maybe four. There is a group that looks into whether the claims are true, and the people who get absolutely enraged at them for doing so.

Fortunately, facts have a pro-halfof33 bias.

They certainly existed but didn't have anywhere near the numbers or influence or ideology they have now. FOX essentially decided to co-opt an existing, non-newsworthy movement and make it the monster it is today. The earlier movement is irrelevant. FOX could have adopted any somewhat right wing group.

halfof33: firefly212: I agree, totally unreasonable to think that people honoring a guy who advocates the murder of gays would use such crass language.

Hmm, she couldn't answer the question whether it was Lively or not.

She also didn't get any responses when she asked her pals for help.

She also did not report it contemporaneously, but mentioned it later that night.

As I said, that is good enough to stoke up a red hot fire of Internet Rage.


I still think you're arguing the case a singular incident of bigotry from an entire demonstration honoring a bigot.

Ok, if the tweet turns out to be factually incorrect, shame on the attendee. Spreading false information makes you an uncredible witness in the future.

All of the rage still stands as it's not directed at this statement but at he sentiment expressed.

You're in a forest arguing the existing of one tree. Shall we pick another in order for you to deem the rage acceptable?
