Your Wonkette Teabagging Photo Tour, Part I

by Jim Newell

It is time. You must see what we have seen. There will be more, and they will be worse. This shitty, muddy, 500-person national protest with NO TEABAGS. Prepare to GO GALT.

Hey lady, Obama is the *other way.* TURN AROUND, and then maybe he’ll consider resigning so that the English Parliament guy on YouTube can take over.

Ha ha sucks to be you! Go play soccer or whatever it is the kids do. (Look at Internet pornography.) Or maybe go to school on this school day.

We saw a group that was about 99% black people, and whoa hey, what a mindfuck! Didn’t they know that it was unsafe for them at the teabagging festival, because of racism? But then it turned out they were just a school group taking the usual walking tour, ha. Still: run!

Shut the FUCK up.

This was the best sign of the day, in the non-ironic sense. Tax slavery does suck!

This lady has offered the beginnings of a delicious beverage! MMM. This could be the next wingnut fad, in which Fox News and Dick Armey would urge protesters to show up in various municipal parks to drink sweet herbal vaginal rinse together.

What the kid on the right is trying to say is that he’s roofied Obama’s tea.

When these kids are in jail for various meth/assault weapons charges, they will remember this day as something of a turning point.

Haw haw u is going to debtor’s prison.

The afternoon climaxed with a mud orgy of umbrella-fucking.

SICK OF TEA PARTY TAX DAY YET? Somehow we are not, yet. More to come!

That photo with the sign reading “I dont want to drink Obama’s tea” is fairly counter-productive to the cause, one would think. But whatever I TOTALLY AGREE!!!!11!

Haw haw u is going to debtor’s prison. I got a good belly laugh out of that one.

I sometimes forget there are two Amurkas; the one where people finish high school and the one where people drop out in 8th grade and forget every single bit of spelling and grammar they learned. These signs are PAINFUL to read. ELLIPSES ARE NOT THE ONLY KIND OF PUNCTUATION YOU CAN USE IN SENTENCES.

PS: Wherefore art the RonPaultrolls today? Are they all still teabagging Nobama? I need some entertainment.

Canadian Rap Star Flavour Flav April 15, 2009 at 4:25 pm

If it’s a silent majority, those of us in the vocal majority will each have to vow to punch TWO people in the face.

I just can’t get over this; do people not remember that there was an election six months ago, and Obama, who won handily, is now doing exactly what he said he would do?

I hate everyone today, but most especially the fucktards in these pictures.

BadKitty April 15, 2009 at 4:26 pm

Maybe the “silent majority” should have fucking voted? Cause otherwise I’m pretty sure you’re the big-mouthed shit-for-brains minority.

Lemming Caution April 15, 2009 at 4:27 pm

“Stop Cutting Defense”

This shit makes my head hurt so bad. There’s just no way of convincing people that a 4% increase does not, somehow, amount to a “cut.” Or that the Secretary of Defense is not a secret ACORN operative for suggesting we not make one type of fighter jet anymore.

The phrase “silent majority” just makes me break out in hives all over.

I’d like to take that one lady’s pointy American flag umbrella for a spin through that crowd. Instead, I think I’ll make “Tea Party Day” into “Beer Day.”

loquaciousmusic April 15, 2009 at 4:27 pm

This makes me SO SAD that I had to work today and couldn’t go to New Haven and see the “Tea Party.”

I made up for it, though, by talking with my students about the Tenth Amendment, because we’re studying the Little Rock Central High desegregation in 1957. At one point, I said, “If there’s a dispute between the federal government and a state’s government, who wins every time?”

“FEDERAL!!!” they yelled enthusiastically.

Ah, youth.

davitydave April 15, 2009 at 4:31 pm

I caught the Tea Party in front of the San Francisco Civic Center. There aren’t any federal offices there that I’m aware of, so I’m not sure why they chose that location specifically. Nancy Pelosi’s office and a brand new federal building are each only a couple blocks away from there protest location. Regardless, when I got there, the police were dispersing them because they didn’t have permits. Really, is it that hard to properly assemble 42 people?

Anyway, I shot pics of several of them and their signs (Randians, Nobamans, Don’t Tread on Me-ers, Anti-Socialists, etc.) and will have them online later today. I’ll post a link once they’re up.

regularguy April 15, 2009 at 4:32 pm

I don’t know if the “Don’t Ruin My Future” sign is aimed at the government or his Mom. I’m leaning toward Mom since she’s got a hood on the kid and is holding an umbrella over him. Junior won’t melt, lady.

3) have never even picked up an Ayn Rand book, let alone read Atlas Shrugged

The last big demonstration I attended, greeting the Republitard conventioneers in NYC in 2004, there was the *nicest* young man with a suit, Brylcreemed hair, and large-framed Gucci glasses who was ambling through the scruffily dressed protesters taking long meaningful looks at everyone. He was no more conspicuous than any other ill-camouflaged Federal operative would be.

In the center of the large Gucci logo on the side of his glasses frames was, of course, the pinhole camera whose leads trailed down the croakies running from the earpiece to the concealed recorder in his suit.

How considerate that this generation of Republitards has shown up and willingly offered themselves to have their portraits taken. The first challenge we would have is identifying the idiots, and like the idiots they are, they’ve solved that one for us. Also.

Crab1 April 15, 2009 at 4:36 pm

I don’t understand how these people have children. There must be people out there who out drink me and make worse decisions when drinking. Gah! Stupid america.

Lionel Hutz Esq. April 15, 2009 at 4:36 pm

Surely it is a law now that anyone other than Neil Peart who takes Ayn Rand seriously should be locked up for their own safety?

But I am glad to see all the people using their kids to make a political point. Although, it must boarder on child abuse to make your child carry a sign saying that he won’t drink Obama’s tea. Poor kid won’t get laid forever because of that picture.

To my eternal shame and self-disgust, I have read “Atlas Shrugged” and the one redeeming characteristic of John Galt, ironically the one which these fuckheads seem most unwilling to embrace, is that he went the fuck away.

Lazy Media April 15, 2009 at 4:46 pm

Atlanta’s rightwingnuts are way more organized (numerous, too), and Fox is pulling out the stops for it. Hannity’s going to broadcast from 7 to 10 at the state Capitol, which is the same MARTA stop that white suburbanites take to go the Braves’ games, so should be a pretty big turnout. Although, Wednesday night, WTF? All the Babdists and other fundagelicals are supposed to be in church. My guess is they’ll get a couple thousand Hannity and Boortz fans. Cobb and Gwinnett counties are the epicenter of smug, suburban know-nothingism east of the Mississippi.

Also, none of those people are in the top tax bracket. Nor will they ever be, unless they win the fucking lottery. You don’t see Warren Buffett out there, now do you?

The people who are enamored of Rand and her “philosophy” are really no deeper than the shallow teens who live for the next “Twighlight” book. Last weeks New Yorker had a great Talk of the Town piece about a local meeting of “Objectivists” who seem to spend their entire time together masturbating to their shared “brushes with Ayn” stories.

I know I come late to this retarded spectacle, but after just a few minutes perusing the photographic evidence, I have a humble request for the editors. Please, won’t you stop? You’re just giving these pathetic bitterz the negative attention they crave, and assisting their reighteously indignant delusions that with a 10th grade education, they too will be a captain of industry whose taxes will be raised by a mulatto Muslim with a gay dog.

Uniquely American orthodoxy that someday you’ll be rich + wingnut belief that their voices “haven’t been heard” when they were heard for 8 long years + heaping helping of stupid = just sad, actually. I

DeepFriedTwinkies April 15, 2009 at 5:44 pm

I attended the teabagging party in Fairhope, AL. It was eerily similar to a Disney Cruise. I hate to tell ya’ll, but there were only a few benign spending signs, and about 1000 American Flags…lots of music, a tribute to every branch of the military, and a warning that there would be no party-bashing. It was a dixie love fest. I asked an elderly couple if they brought their guns, and they laughed and told me “you might be a spy”. I told them, “my cover is blown”. I took pictures, but the only teabaggers in the crowd were an elderly couple, about 100 years old, who had a couple of teabags hanging from their hats.

And I point this out over and over. The military is a biggest socialist organization in the US. They all get paid the same for each pay and grade, they get subsidized stores where the prices are kept low, free healthcare while active duty, and subsidized programs for your children and spouses.
I speak from experience being a military dep for 40 years. But tell one of these teabaggers that, and they will go apeshit on you. But there they go, honoring them a their Teabagging, down with socialists, muslins, and left wing fascists rallies.

Good news, everyone– The Governor of Texas is threatening to secede from the Union!

And ain’t this precious, according to HuffPo, one of the Teabagers at the Austin rally said she “took the day off of home-schooling her three children and brought them to the rally to teach them about civic duty. Knowlton, a critic of the Social Security system and the United Nations, said she felt camaraderie at the demonstration.”

I’m not sure whether this makes me want to laugh or cry

In fact, they were conquered by force and undisguisedly ruled as a subject province for several years afterward, accompanied by the abrogation of any treaties existing prior to their defeat.

Seriously, since when is it ok for a governor to be talking secession? That’s bullshit. But he’s just pitching his little baby fit before he sucks on the federal teat just like he knew he would anyway.
