- A graduate student from UCLA photographed 250 signs that she saw at the 9/12 FreedomWorks rally, and then did scientific experiments to determine whether these signs were racist or not. The grad student’s analysis found “only about a quarter of all signs reflected direct anger with Obama. Only 5 percent of the total mentioned the president’s race or religion, and slightly more than 1 percent questioned his American citizenship.” Only five percent of the signs this lady saw at a rally said “Obama is a Muslin”? What could this mean? It means the media has distorted the Teabagger message, which is Freedom. We’ve attended many of these Teabagger picnics — not just one! — and we cannot agree more. Why won’t the liberal media apologize for calling all of these crusty, self-loathing brain-dead white people mean names? And also, we would like to apply to UCLA’s Teabagger Ph.D. program. [WaPo]
