Teabaggers on Parade

Remember the tea parties-- those well orchestrated " grass roots" gatherings orchestrated by lobbyists and attended by right wing riff raff? Remember those oh so sincere, all American teabaggers carrying signs that could make you laugh or cry-- or both?

Here's an internet album of stupid tea party signs and the teabaggers who believe them along with some sardonic captions by yours truly. In all cases I've linked to the original source of the image.

Have a laugh or get out the kleenex:-)

Oops. Don't look now, but Medicare IS socialized medicine

How do you spell racist?

LMAO--'nuff said :-)

Muslim and Marxist both start with "m" but that's about all they have in common. Did these folks flunk seventh grade or something? At least they can spell


Learn to Spell!

Fair and balanced?? yeah-- sure and I'm the tooth fairy

Stay tuned for more from the lunatic fringe. They're planning more teaparties once the weather warms up. Kinda makes you feel all warm and fuzzy and proud to be an American, doesn't it?

Obama was right on when he announced the push to increase educational opportunities for American children. Tea baggers are obviously the children that got left behind long before nearly-illiterate Dubya got to the White House. ;D

Pictures speak louder than words sometimes. Some of these made me sick just thinking that there are such ignorant people in this world. The one with the lion was the worse in my opinion. I'm with JamaGenie on education. And lets just hope none of these people are teachers.

I find the Sinclair Lewis quote really scary when I look at these people. They are sad and scary at the same time.

What annoys me almost more than all this is that they've taken a great thing (tea) and tried to ruin it with their nutty politics!

Jo said...

Some of those signs (and the T-shirt) actually made my stomach churn. Those folks have no idea they are actually just demonstrating their ignorance, and not much else.

Alex said...

OMG...I am quite terrified - these people have the right to vote?! Thank you for enlightening me. Socialised medicine...all private health-care providers peddle propaganda. I am an NHS's saved my skin many a time.

Right you are about the tea, Amanda.

Hello Jo and Alex-- yes the signs are truly scary aren't they? I meant it when I said I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I am always astounded at the mixing together of completely un related movements and people as in " Hitler and Karl Marx" and Karl is spelled with a C not a K-- how do you spell " uninformed"?
