"People are saying a lot of bad things and boycotting my restaurant," Scott Van Duzer, 46, told POLITICO. "There's no middle line anymore, and that's exactly what's wrong with our country right now."


How sad. How true.

Fark the teabaggers. Next time I'm in Florida, I'll swing over to Ft. Pierce and have one of his pizzas.

FTFA: Van Duzer's June bike-trek was part of his Van Duzer Foundation, and helped raise awareness for blood donation shortages. Founded in 2008 to support a local firefighter whose house burned down, the foundation has since raised more than $600,000, Van Duzer said. Van Duzer said he rode with a few kids from the Boys and Girls Club and met with U.S. Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin to discuss blood shortages. Obama told The New York Times that Van Duzer's effort in promoting blood donations was part of the reason the campaign decided to visit his pizza shop.

Boycotting a guy who raises money and awareness for homeless firefighters and blood donation? shiat man, why not just kick a bunch of orphaned puppies, walk over to the nearest grotto and worship Satan while you're at it, assholes?

Bloody William: shotglasss: pciszek: unlikely: Pokey.Clyde: Teahadis? Really? God, you came from the shallow end of the gene pool, didn't you subby?

It's a fairly standard synonym for the American Taliban. I'm surprised you hadn't heard it.

I still prefer "teabaggers", since that's what they called themselves until someone told them what it meant.

You are either stupid or lying. The f-tards on MSNBC started that.

Wrong.

Or to quote National Review Online:

They asked people to send a tea bag to the Oval Office. One of the exhortations was "Tea Bag the Fools in D.C." A protester was spotted with a sign saying, "Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You." So, conservatives started it: started with this terminology. But others ran with it and ran with it.

If conservatives had any balls, they'd take their licks and swallow the fact that they teabagged first.


Bloody William (can I call you "BW"?), I'll see those two links of yours and raise you this one.

This is the actual Freeper thread in which the Tea Party first organized online, a full week before the earliest event listed in the timeline in The Week's blog article that you linked to!

Note that they come up with the name "Operation Tea Bag" in the subject of the thread. The very Weeners was one of their own suggesting that they pick a different name! Several others who also knew of the innuendo meaning of "teabag" also warned them to change the name. But, the majority, even after having that meaning explained to them, continued to push for keeping the name, on the grounds that the innuendo would obviously be applied to their enemies,, not themselves!

Read the whole thread. It's not all that long (all of one page and only a dozen posts on a second page).

This is where it really started, and this is why it's sweet, sweet Karma to call them that.

The more this election drags on the more I lament for the loss of the Republican Party. The party of Lincoln has fallen upon dark times. We sold our ideals for hollow arguments, our values for bibles, and our national pride to corporate interest.

Has it really come to this? Are we so blinded by pure hatred that we are willing to our own? The man simply hugged the president. He is a small business owner who makes great strides in his community, if this man was $100 million richer he would be upon a giant marble base for all to gaze upon, he would be a hero of the old republican guard and model for the new! But no, we have taken a person who has earned success in the most ethical way possible and turned him into a target for boycotting. He runs a charity about donating blood for Christ's sake! Not about converting gays with the power of prayer, not about supporting fundamentalist teachings, not to shout vile things at scared young girls as they make the toughest call of their lives inside an abortion clinic, but giving blood! It doesn't get more non-partisan than that.

Bloody William: Vangor: A. Snatchfold: Significant issues like hugging the president?

Support for a President would be a significant issue. As said, boycotting this is ridiculous, but this isn't because he hugged the President; this is because he has explicitly said he would vote for President Obama.

Really? Just... voting is enough now? It's your right to boycott that just as it's your right to boycott anything, but unlike boycotting a chain of restaurants where the head vocally advocated a policy that limits the rights of my friends and loved ones, boycotting a restaurant because... the owner said he would vote the other way just seems petty.


Right wingers are not known for understanding any type or level of context. Group X does Y, so Y can do X. They see eveything in the barest of arguments that will help them continue the 'Us vs them' mentality, keeping everything balanced. Democrats respond to something? Well then so can WE! However, they never fully explore WHY things occur and instead just run with it because the other side did something.

They never do apples to oranges comparisons. Hell, they are incapable to do apples to rocket launchers comparisons. They see both items as tangible objects that people can physically hold, so both situations must be EXACTLT the same in every single aspect no matter what. Because democrats boycotted a store, so will they. However, all they can wrap their minds around is the idea that democrats only boycotted because of party affliation. 'You hate them because they are republican!' "no, I'm boycotting because they send money to damage the rights of others.' 'He likes Obama, I'm going to boycott him!!' They don't even wait to see why he likes Obama. Just liking him is enough to warrent a boycott.

They do it all the time with their attacks. Any side not them will point how someone on their side said something wrong, lying or vile and respond with a criticism to it. All they see is that someone said negative about someone on their side, so they respond with either equal or worst levels of verbal retaliation on ANYONE on the other side. Democrats say that this senator is wrong because he see gays to be evil and inhuman? Well, right wingers will counter by saying that this democrat who mentions that people should grow their own garden is a lazy fat evil biatch. Its similar to how every time an actual politician will say something bad, they dig up some random blogger saying something bad (but not at the same levels of bad) are exactly the same, so excuse our side.

they never see why a republican got a negative reponse, just that the republican got a negative reponse, so all they focus on is turnabout is fair play. However, they never remotely even come close to something on the other side that can justify their "both sides are bad' mentality.

tony41454: Nothing like a Fark hypocrisy party! CHIC-FIL-A!!!!!! You hypocrites wanted to boycott a company just because its owner stood up for morality. NOW you're saying it's NOT okay to boycott this RHINO (he was a guest at the White House earlier this year) for HIS policies. Fark off, hypocrites. I say boycott him. And I wouldn't be talking so loud about "right-wing political partisans" if I were you, because the left-wing PPs are all over the place here.

How can you people even sleep at night? Good grief, liberalism is rightly called a mental disorder.


Bloody William's repetition of Lando Lincoln's comment aside, the real false equivalency is this: The Chik Fil A owner was putting money from his profits to fund those causes that the boycotters were against, making customers indirect supporters of the owner's causes. The more nebulous "I wanna elect this guy" and "I want this specific policy enacted" false equivalency aside, this pizza parlor dude is putting his profits towards blood donations and local victims of hardship, making his customers indirect supporters of aid for people who need help.

The tertiary false equivalence is that, of course, of a small business versus a large one in several states. Many large fast food chains have boycotts levied against them, usually by left extremists. Animal cruelty folks, environment folks, the list goes on. Because of their size and ubiquitous nature, they don't notice the loss in business. A small local business that may lose 30%(to pull a number out of the air based on the idea that Florida is a swing state and not all right-wingers are this extremist) of its customers, he'd notice that.

Yeah, they sold out the last good thing they had going for them, but that was back in 1964 with the southern strategy; their economics had been retarded since Teddy left for the bull moose party; their foreign policy was never that great and went straight to hell when the likes of Cheney got their hands in the pot under Nixon. Reagan's deals with the religious right just made a terrible mess worse. So when precisely did you join this clusterfark that you feel you can lament it's current position?


I was born into it. Family is from Pennsyltucky, born in Georgia and spent most of my life here on and around military bases. I've been listening to Limbaugh since I was little. Hell even called into his show once when I was maybe 11 to tell him that "Maybe we should talk it over before we storm a Chinese base to take back our electronic surveillance aircraft". I have seen a lot of good republicans, my dad included, been talked down to like some sort of "race traitor" for daring to even think of compromise. I mean when a man graduates from west point, serves in the military for most of his life, wins a bronze star, earns a legion of merit, who considers himself a strict constitutionalists, and has a picture of him circa '83 with a cutout of Ronald Reagen, is shut off for not being republican enough then I consider it time to lament.

He admitted that many people have a different image of him on Fark versus when they meet him in real life, cementing the idea that what he posts on Fark is nothing but a lying fake character (thus a waste of time). The master of semantics, who will shill for republicans but smugly call out to anyone describing him as one 'When did I ever say I supported republicans?' All his arguments boiling down to how he never technicallly claimed to be something so he can get away with cheerleading for one side and leaves him a route to escape the conversation before he actually has to admit to taking a stand on anything.

Komen was assholish by trying to dictate what parts of women's health they would and would not support.

Rush called a woman a slut repeatedly because, at 58 years old and having been married 4 times, this supposedly straight man still has no idea how birth control pills work.

That really is a silly argument. Of course he has the right to say what he wants.

But he isn't entitled to have the business he has - he has to earn it. If you say something that annoys part of your customer base, there may be a consequence of doing that.

These people aren't "part of his customer base," they state in their reviews that they've never eaten at his restaurant. They don't even live in the same state.

No different than a guy in Boston talking about how much he supports the Yankees. He may make a great pizza, but he shouldn't be surprised if he doesn't have a lot of people ordering from him when the Yankees face the Sox.


These people aren't boycotting him, they're leaving false negative reviews for his business. It's not the same and you're being disingenuous by trying to pretend it is.

That being said, the teabagger response to some guy showing his affection for the president of the US just shows how un-American they are. Courting treason in fact. But then, what else would anyone expect from some idiotic teabagger?

Has it really come to this? Are we so blinded by pure hatred that we are willing to our own? The man simply hugged the president. He is a small business owner who makes great strides in his community, if this man was $100 million richer he would be upon a giant marble base for all to gaze upon, he would be a hero of the old republican guard and model for the new! But no, we have taken a person who has earned success in the most ethical way possible and turned him into a target for boycotting. He runs a charity about donating blood for Christ's sake! Not about converting gays with the power of prayer, not about supporting fundamentalist teachings, not to shout vile things at scared young girls as they make the toughest call of their lives inside an abortion clinic, but giving blood!

Some money given to Chick-Fil-A is donated to anti-gay causes, and their CEO publicly denounces gay rights. Hence, people who support gay rights would be dissuaded to give money to that company knowing some of those funds are working against their interests.

Pizza Guy is a Republican who merely said he was VOTING for Obama. Not donating money. Not giving any other support than his one vote. What does boycotting his business accomplish?

It started with people ordering pizzas to be delivered to homeless shelters and a GOP office (the latter outside the delivery zone). Then the owner was getting asked for people to whom pizzas could be delivered. Eventually the buy-cott turned into a donation drive for the Van Duzer Foundation, which seeks to increase blood donations among other good works.

And you guys say Obama is truly history's greatest monster? Obviously he has some stuff to learn from this evil man. I mean, civility? THE HORROR!!

Somacandra: FTFA: Van Duzer's June bike-trek was part of his Van Duzer Foundation, and helped raise awareness for blood donation shortages. Founded in 2008 to support a local firefighter whose house burned down, the foundation has since raised more than $600,000, Van Duzer said. Van Duzer said he rode with a few kids from the Boys and Girls Club and met with U.S. Surgeon General Regina M. Benjamin to discuss blood shortages. Obama told The New York Times that Van Duzer's effort in promoting blood donations was part of the reason the campaign decided to visit his pizza shop.

Boycotting a guy who raises money and awareness for homeless firefighters and blood donation? shiat man, why not just kick a bunch of orphaned puppies, walk over to the nearest grotto and worship Satan while you're at it, assholes?


Teabaggers have no class, as long as they can stick it to Obama no matter who gets sacrificed for the better cause.

There is no honor in these hate groups....

Republicans are assholes.

Not all of them are. The owner of this pizza parlor is Republican. He voted for President Obama in 2008 and plans to vote for him in 2012.

On the other hand, I'll agree with anyone who says that the Tea Partiers are assholes.


I guess I should say 'Most republicans are assholes."

Dancin_In_Anson: AdolfOliverPanties: Secondly, he wasn't talking about pizza boycotters, but rather those on that side who have this philosophy that they will do ANYTHING, including causing intentional harm to people and the nation, just to get "their guys" back in power.

Don't give me that shiat. He'd stand shoulder to should with the Occutards who invaded bank buildings or shut down ports on the west coast...which caused harm to the people who worked there and the people who depended on the commerce that came from those ports just to get those guys out of power...

serial_crusher: I'm sure you never said anything bad about Chick-Fil-A on any social media sites.


I said plenty of bad things about their owner on here. I never questioned the quality of their food, or put any reviews up on places like Yelp. Those are two different things.

AdolfOliverPanties: I would LOVE for those assholes, and their counterparts on the left to be sequestered or at least rendered powerless in some way so the farking adults can do the talking.


I'd hope you wouldn't consider me in that group. I'd like to actually compromise, but I don't see the point in stepping back one inch to people who have no intent on compromising themselves, on the assumption that giving in first will promote cooperation. I know these people won't compromise, so I see no reason to be anything but intransigent. Admittedly, given that the GOP is utterly intransigent, I can't recall the last time there was an issue I was willing to compromise on. Maybe the deficit deal when I'd accept billions in cuts as long as there were tax raises.

Somewhere, there is a thread with a bunch of right-wing shills attacking those that would protest against Whole Foods and Chick-Fil-A. In bizarro world, they are pissed that people are attacking this small business owner for expressing his free opinion.

Dinki: FirstNationalBastard: I can't wait until someone compares this to the Chick-Fil-A boycotts.

The Politico comments section has that all over the place.


And just boycotting the place would be the same. Intentionally tanking social media rankings for a hug is something completely different.
