COLLEGE JOURNALISM MAJORS  2:31 pm March 23, 2010

Teabagger Tries To Harass Congressman’s House, Lists Wrong Address, Stands By His ‘Journalism’

by Jim Newell

Something else entirelyThe Politico has a funny story, so /LINKBAN temporarily: Teabaggers are harassing poor Virginia freshman Rep. Tom Perriello. (To whom you libtards might want to spare some reelection $$$ if you can, since he’s a good, populist voice who has made many tough votes and could use a Reward. This is how it works when Democrats actually pass major laws; we’re so used to just bitching about everyone and everything and ruining their careers, which is more fun.) ANYWAY, the teabaggers are trying to destroy this guy’s life, and having some trouble.

A tea party organizer angry over Rep. Thomas Perriello’s (D-Va.) vote in favor of health care reform published what he thought was the freshman member’s home address on a blog, in case any readers “want to drop by” and provide a “personal touch” to their views.

Rather than giving out Perriello’s address however, the tea party activist mistakenly printed the home address of the congressman’s brother. Perriello’s brother and wife have four children under the age of 8.

In the post, the author gives out the address to his “friends” in Perriello’s district.

The author was tracked down and is this idiot named Mike Troxel, head of the Lynchburg Tea Party, which may or may not even be in Perriello’s district. But who cares? Teabaggers won’t be redlined into obscurity by these damn Democrats.

Troxel, however, still thinks that the address is Perriello’s house, because of Journalism:

Troxel found the address through a directory website and said he would only replace what he currently has on the blog with an address provided by Perriello’s office.

“If they would like to provide me with the address of Tom, then I’d be more than happy to take it down,” he said. “I have no reason to believe it’s not his house.”

“We’re pretty ticked off he voted for it,” Troxel said.

Troxel, a 2005 graduate of Liberty University, added “I was a journalism major in college, so I have every reason to believe my research is accurate.”

Emphasis ours, because why not emphasize the funniest sentence ever?

Fuck-Tard-Ed. They are soooooooo fucking fucktarded. Liberty University, the cargo-cult university, like those bamboo airplanes the natives of Nedw Guinea built, in hopes it would lure the real airplanes back, conservative know-nothing “universities,” they look the same, to someone too dumb to understand what a real university is.

So…um what’s Troxel’s address. You for folks who would like to apply their fists…er, I mean personal touch.

What a douchbag.

Troxel’s address can be pretty easily found, once you google him and discover he is the owner of Matshark, LLC. Googling that company name gets you to an address and phone number.

Same thing with the makeup of the so called intellectual class. At the University I am working at (whose name shall not be disclosed) the new “radical” thing that is sweeping the faculty and students is something called “red toryism” (yeah I know, someone please call the oxymoron police) promulgated by this well meaning, but dense English fellow called Paul Blondel. Our cultural war of postion is somewhat lacking, I am afraid.

You can be ticked off that he voted for something, dickhead; but that doesn’t give you an excuse to encourage others in your angry mob to go to someone’s home and personally harass them or worse; that would be true even you had the right address up.

And we’ve also got teabaggers throwing bricks with death threats through other Congresspeople’s office windows. As funny as they can be, I’m dreading when the next McVeigh comes up from the teabagging ranks.

Many years ago, when I made the mistake of being politically active, a radio talk show host put my home number out on the air. I was just leaving work at the time and did not learn about it until I got home to see my angry wife and two frightened children wondering why everybody wanted us to go back to Russia. Needless to say, I called his producer and, several references to pigfucking later, I got a promise of an on-air apology the very next show. The damage was done however, as both my sons vote Democratic as a result.

Not that I normally approve of the assholish “posting someone’s contact info” business myself, but if *anyone* has ever been asking for a little bit of applied karma, it’s a toss-up between this guy, and that guy Vassar Bushmills over on CNN’s new blog.

But, honestly, our wonkette editor is right. We shouldn’t. We’re better than that. We only deface electronic petitions with dick jokes, and that sort of thing. Doing that sort of thing would be LITERALLY the first step towards becoming Michelle Malkin, and that’s really the last thing anyone wants.

I love the merry band of idiot teabaggers in Tom Perriello’s district. Because their congressman doesn’t openly disparage Muslims on the House floor anymore (google Virgil Goode for laffs) they just have cold gone nuts.

These are the same bumbling idiots who planned to burn Tom Perriello in effigy, until the property owner thought twice about having a bunch of gun-toting retards light stuff on fire in his front yard.

Seriously though, throw a few bucks to Tom. He’s one of the good ones.

Not just a journalism major.

A journalism major at Liberty University.

Let’s hear it for Mike Troxel, whose home address and phone number in Lynchburg VA are apparently listed on White Pages.com.

m_supercomputer March 23, 2010 at 4:45 pm

AHAHA, LIBERTY. I went to college in Lynchburg (at a non-retarded school, honest), and it was bizarre. One of the school rules (at least at the time) was that they weren’t allowed to view any ‘ungodly’ movies, even while they were at home for spring break. And if other students found out that they did so, they were required to turn them in.

Also, the two town institutions closest to Liberty & Falwell’s church: the biggest Wal-Mart I’ve ever seen and an always-busy Cracker Barrel.

Still waiting for the first teabagger to get shot for acting like a dumbfuck on someone’s property. The cognitive dissonance from the resulting feigned indignation over shooting an intruder on private property will make it all worth it.

“I was a journalism major in college”, but apparently never graduated? from Lynchburg, and I was so hoping that the derivation of the name wasn’t from some sordid past. Luckily, a quick perusal of the town’s history leads to John Lynch, its founder. The city’s economy seems to be suffering with major industries shutting down and a very low median salary. Sigh…

“I was a journalism major in college, so I have every reason to believe my research is accurate.”

Well, he apparently only learned fundie journalism at Liberty, which uses the Prosperity Gospel staple “name it and claim it” (aka “blab it and grab it”). In other words, he only has to think it’s true, facts be damned.

I am not sure any have done the shootings based on race, but teabager murder sprees have already happened a few times now. Of course, the “liberal media” plays it down.

ThePerfesser March 23, 2010 at 11:29 pm

If he studied journalism at Jerry Falwell Academy, he probably became an expert in the art of the documentary.

Down there, they consider “The Flintstones” to be one of the great documentary series.

I once took a scientology personality test and therefore I have no reason to doubt that my understanding of personality types isn’t completely accurate.

And I have concluded that Mike Troxel is a complete and utter troxel.

And if he moved 10.396 blocks up the street, he’d have the same address as Barry! Only in Lynchburg. Virginia.

[re=538158]freakishlystrong[/re]: i did some research on this – actually it just came to me; but i have drunk tea, and i have every reason to believe my belief is true!!1! – and it appears that there are local variations on the “tea” in the teabaggers tea bags.

for the most part, though, it’s a blend of spent grain from moonshining, psilocybin, crank, thalidomide, and grass clippings for flavor. (local and regional variations include ritalin instead of thalidomide, crack instead of crank, bread mold extract, and toe jam.)

fork-wielding maniac March 24, 2010 at 9:38 am

[re=538953]fork-wielding maniac[/re]:also, too, in the more rural areas of southern states, “bathtub” teas are popping up. this is a rather foul brewing process in which the loose “tea” is loaded into a dirty sock, brewed in dirty bathwater, and left to steep in the sun on the front porch.

JadedDIssonance March 24, 2010 at 10:14 am

I visited Liberty U back when I was an impressionable High School Kid. I was interested in studying music and sat in on some of their Courses of Music. Turns out, I had already learned more in 2 years of High School than they knew as graduating seniors. I rest my case or something. Did you know they’re not allowed to watch Rated R movies? Also, they have spies who sit at the movie theaters and hand out Demerits to kids who try to sneak in and see one? Yeah, shittiest school evar.

I did a web search on “Mike Troxel is a douchebag,” and this post came up first in the results. Congratulations!

So “We’re pretty ticked off he voted for it” translates into “We will invite people to come to his house and harass him about it,” eh? OK, then, Mr. Troxel, let’s just plaster your home address on that idiotic blog entry of yours, and see how many folks want to come pay you a visit to explain their feelings about the fine job you are doing there at the keyboard.
