Two things need to be outlawed, if we are truly to reclaim our Nation’s Freedom: child voice slavery and the computer program “GarageBand.” Also: FEMA death panel for anyone who does a terrible lip sync to their own terrible computer song. All three of these Crimes Against Freedom are on display in the above video, but we’ve found some teabagger classics that are even worse than this one! Join us for a musical tour of the Teabaggers’ finest efforts in song ‘n video! You will not be able to get any of this stuff out of your mind for a long, long time.

This one is called, obviously, “best TEA PARTY RALLY song ever.” Besides the pure musical/lyrical genius, is there a reason why this particular song is the best TEA PARTY RALLY song ever? Yes! The person who posted this to the YouTubes says, “Fun song easy to learn. In only 2 mins…”

Hey, uhh, what? Taze her? This is from the Pittsburgh city council or something, somebody doesn’t want to pay their property tax so they will kill everyone with this sound.

♪ ♫ I am a dingbat, I am going to fucking kill myself … ♪ ♫

Hey you fuckin’ Mexicans, “Engleees is the lanyungleesh,” so don’t be speakin’ Chinee I caint read it.

This Paultard one is so awful it’s not even entertaining, but you should go ahead and skip to 2:51 for a completely irony-free use of the famous “GET A BRAIN, MORANS” picture. Wow.

And this is … what is this? Some kind of Pac-Man theme song made by a colony of broken robots on Sad Island?

And, finally, the child abuse again. IS IT FUNNY TO DO THIS TO OUR NATION’S SPECIAL NEEDS????

  • RPolanski

    [re=549465]freakishlystrong[/re]: This past Sunday, Harry Shearer did a great tribute to the Young Eagles who so valiantly conquered the lesbian titty bar in West Hollywood on the the RNC’s dime. This beautiful tribute was heard on his Le Show radio show broadcast on KCRW, 89.9 in Santa Monica. Here are the touching lyrics:

    Imagine really bad background tinny artificial keyboards like John Ashcroft used.

    Let the Eagle Land

    Flying so high, stuff gets in your eye
    Why wouldn’t you take a stand
    Everyone loves young eagles
    So, let the eagles land

    A next so extreme, seemed like a dream
    But it put a big dent in the brand
    Just for the sake of the eagles
    Just let the eagles land.

    Young eagles, they fly on Friday
    They stay up all weekend long
    But when they fly over West Hollywood
    Their sense of direction goes wrong

    Young pigeons and crow, who care where they go
    Their flights are completely unplanned
    But you’ve got to guide the eagles
    So let the eagles land.

    When you fly toward the stars, you may fly through some bars
    Air traffic controls undermanned
    Take pity on the eagles
    And let the eagles land.

    Brought tears to my eyes it was so patriotic.

    Oh, flying at night’s never easy
    Even along southland shores
    When you deliver them to their bondage
    Don’t stare at the eagles’ sores.

    Ho. They’ll soar again, heaven knows when
    But they’ll be the bird in the hand
    ‘Til then just think of the eaglet
    And let the eagles land
    Just let the eagles land.

    Wow, those were strange and terrifying — of the ones that loaded. I like “Press 1 If You Can’t Dance” — every country song ought to blend patriotism with a stubborn unwillingness to learn new words or assimilate changing cultural norms.

    The PacMan song had the advantage overall, though — it was just as substantive as the others, but, being instrumental, didn’t have the distraction of all those irritating lies.

  • President Beeblebrox

    I couldn’t take more than one minute of the first video.

    If I had a TARDIS, I would take these videos back to Philadelphia in 1787 and show them to the Constitutional delegates – “Here, guys, this is what yr Constitution will create. Let’s take out that 3/5 of a person and Indians not taxed thing and avoid that nasty civil war, that way there won’t be child voice slavery and GarageBand songs in 2010 that play on yr rich-guy tea-tariff revolt against Triple George up in Boston… m’kay?”

    It might not work, but perhaps it would make Franklin write some pithy prose and send some of the states back to the warm embrace of His Britannic Majesty’s government, where they now have socialist gay Marxist free health care…

  • harrison grrgeron

    shouldn’t the first video be called a revolution’s steeping.

  • One Flew Over the Wingnut

    Wow, wow, wow…I didn’t think an amount of suck that large could be contained on a single blog and not crash the entire internets, yea crash all of reality with it. Maybe it did, maybe I’m moving but you’re all stuck in time and space…at least those of you who watched them all. The last one is the worst of the bunch, and that’s saying a lot. Not because of the singing which is uniformally terrible in all of them; especially the one with ron jeremy and that porn star from the 70’s who sang “more, more, more” NO, NO, NO! But I digress, those were all offensive in their own small way but the last one was the worst. The Pittsburgh one shows that using education funds to train retards to sing ad-lib is a terrible idea and should be cut out of the budget. But the last one…ugh, even the Pac-Man one with its gratuitous Palin and Beck imagery didn’t get me as angry…it was annoying, but fuck all, Palinista’s are arch-retards, so it’s okay.

    That last one, with Obama all gussied up as Hitler was only the beginning of the immense amounts of bigotry that ensued, this was really QUITE ironic with use of Nazi imagery; I’ll wager there’s no chance the little authoritarian follower who made it would understand the delicious irony of the content of that video….maybe if he sat and thought about it for 1,000 years. So the subtext is teabaggers cannot sing AT ALL (or carry a tune at least), are racist, very poorly educated, completely lacking in self-awareness, are anti-intellectual, majorly homophobic, can’t speak English but demand everyone else speak it, use Nazi imagery with a casual style that belies who the real fascists are and love idiots who use crazy and bigoted memes regularly. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, these guys are a moustache away from wearing Brownshirts…maybe if Tancredo let his grow..or Palin didn’t get electrolysis for a month which she’s clearly shameless enough to do; they’d have a mighty ‘stache to rally behind. (especially a porno ‘stache like mullet Ron Jeremy in video #2).

    Sinclair Lewis once wrote that “when fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag carrying a cross”, this applies here; fascism will rise cloaked as anti-fascism works too. These people are crazy and terrifying; they are moved by dog whistle politics and are ready to react against anyone who doesn’t follow the Bush line; they are Manichean robots with a reactionary propensity toward violence…They should never be allowed near an open mic and for god’s sake need to be kept away from anything approaching music.

    Lastly, I’d like to thank our beloved editors at Wonkette for braving the lake of fire to find this shit; I’d excoriate you normally but I realize and empathize with the intense pain you went through compilling it all. OH and purple mushrooms for all the semi-attractive women in those videos, and cock punches for every guy involved….what am I saying? cock punches for all!

  • One Flew Over the Wingnut

    I was quote searching earlier for a paper…and I found this nugget:

    19) “Rove’s re-election strategy was elegantly simple: Scare the bejesus out of Jesusland. F@ggots are headed your way! Satanic Muslims are hiding everywhere! That’s all it took to get Jesusland to do the job. Intellectual conservatives like the National Review staff are flattering themselves if they honestly believe Jesusland cares about conservative thought. The “reality-based” folks are learning that Jesusland doesn’t even care about jobs or the economy. In Jesusland, it’s all the will of Jesus. No job? No money? Daughter got her clit pierced? Jesus is just f*cking with you again, testing your faith. Got the cancer? Oh well. Soon you’ll be with Jesus. Reality is no match for a mystical world in which an all-powerful god is constantly toying with every detail of your mundane life, just to see what you’ll do about it. Keep praying and always keep your eye out for homosexuals and terrorists, and you will eventually be rewarded … all you have to do is die, and then it’s SuperJesusLand, where you will be a ghost floating in a magic cloud with all the other ghosts from Jesusland, with Jesus Himself presiding over an Eternal Church Service.” — Blogger Ken Layne after Kerry went down to defeat in November

  • Larry McAwful

    It’s ironic that the speak-English-or-die lady keeps showing pictures of immigrants in English classes when it’s the anti-foreign and anti-immigrant people who consistently vote to defund English classes for immigrants and their children. Immigrants *want* to learn English; it’s the only way to get and hold a halfway decent job in this country. A more accurate summary of that sentiment would be a song called “America: Do Not Enter Without White Skin and a Gun.”

  • Larry McAwful

    The “Yankee Doodle” remix is interesting. The photos, I mean. Notice how every time you see black people, they’re by themselves, but every time you see a crowd, there are no black people in it. In other words…

    Token Doodle went to protest,
    Posing with the white folk,
    Never saw him in the crowd though,
    Hanging with the right folk.

    Token Doodle, keep it up,
    Glamming for the photos,
    Mind the white crowds all around,
    We’ve got our film, now go home!
