Conservative Professor Protests Use of Term ‘Tea bagger’ In Front of Ladies

pornography, basically.How is America’s Socialist Patriarchy oppressing women lately? This time it’s truly awful: college professors are referring to America’s patriots as “tea baggers” in classrooms! WHAT?!? Now some of you may not know this, but the term “tea bagging” leads a sneaky double life, both as a term for the hazy Jesus warrior collective trying to trample the federal government with their army of scooters, and also as an oral sex act involving testicles. This is offensive to student lady ears in classrooms everywhere according to University of North Carolina Wilmington criminology professor Mike Adams, who asserts that right-wing women should not be sexually harassed by professors talking about nuts. Nuts! There is another term that has two meanings. GAH. There we go again! 

Normally the official Republican stance on women’s rights sounds like, “pregnant women are lying criminals who hold abortion panty parties if you don’t strap them down,” so why is a conservative professor bothering to complain about sexual harassment of women? Because it happened to be a lady UNCW student that wrote a letter to the administration complaining about some librul professor using the term “tea bagger” in her classroom. In the GOP hive mind, “lady” means “sex thing used for lifeless sex between gay Craigslist hookups.” Ergo: a lady is offended, it must be “sexual” harassment! Here is Mike Adams, complaining:

The Associate Provost for Institutional Diversity and Inclusion, Dr. Jose Hernandez, has been forwarded an email, from a female student, expressing her concerns about the use of the term “tea baggers” in the classroom. Therefore, it is now his responsibility to move forward with an investigation against the professor who has allegedly been using this term in the classroom. I’m sure that the female student feels excluded by hearing obscene sexualized references to her and those who share her political beliefs.

Mike Adams, he is so chivalrous! Speaking up for the harassed ladies! Would this still count if a male student had complained? Haha, no, then it would be a much more serious charge of “political harassment.”

And then, blah blah some irrelevant stuff about college sexual harassment policies and the Obama administration until finally his column detonates into the death star explosion of paranoia and persecution that can be the only logical conclusion of his disingenuous claim that he actually gives a shit about the sexual harassment of women:

The time has come for conservative students to take the gloves off and start fighting campus indoctrination by turning the weapons of the left against the leftists themselves. By taking my advice and using the “harassment” mechanism, one of two things is guaranteed to happen:

1. We can get rid of scores of leftist professors who create a climate of “intimidation” and “offense” in the classroom.

2. We can enlist the help of campus leftists in restoring the standard of “proof beyond a reasonable doubt” in campus sexual assault and sexual harassment cases.

At least we seem to have found a winning formula for sexual harassment that Republican men will care about. Just try to take away Mike Adams’s right to not be sexually harassed for his political beliefs! [Townhall]

          ZOMG. I will NEVAH be able to listen to that again, not even the Zappa version, without barfing. Thank you so much, Nostrildamus.

      1. An_Outhouse

        I'm still waiting for my tea bagging.
        (I think. I''m interpreting this as the guy with the sign wants to suck my balls, right?)

  1. DaSandman

    I agree that "tea bagger" is completely inappropriate.

    I propose we rename them "ancient testes sucking halfwitted racist fucktards"

    1. Rotundo_

      Works for me, I always tended towards traitorous cocksucking vermin myself as a descriptor of them, but this works ok as well. Hmmm, maybe I should drop the "vermin" label as it is a bit over the top. Yours is probably the more diplomatic

  2. Tundra Grifter

    It is very true that when The Movement started, these fools called themselves Tea Baggers.

    Happily, I was already an avid fan of Wonkette – I knew from the getgo they would have to change their name.

    Now it's our fault they picked it?

    1. Doktor Zoom

      No, it's our fault that we kept using it after they found out what it meant. Especially that Rachel Maddow, who lesbian harassed all right-thinking people by saying that term and then blatantly giggling in the commie prevert fashion for which she is notorious.

  3. SorosBot

    My, for that professor use such a vulgar term in front of the weaker gentler sex is so uncouth, that lass must have required a fainting couch! Why, if the university allows this, next they might allow co-educational dancing, or the women to wear pants!

    1. fuflans

      it is has been a day of outraged pearl clutching and fainting couches.

      my my what ancient fat white people and their entitled offspring have to suffer in obama's america.

    2. PsycWench

      I graduated from that university and believe me, there was plenty of co-educational everything. It was a couple of years before Douchebag got started there, though.

    1. finallyhappy

      I was in BWI with an entire team of soccer players(women) from Liberty. I was tempted to ask them if they couldn't get into a real college.

  4. Grief_Lessons

    This guy is a sack of shit. I intend no double entendre: he is literally a burlap bag, filled with human excrement, who has somehow acquired the ability to speak.

    1. Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Not in a serious discussion of politics, no.

      Plus I understand there is a secondary meaning to that word.

      1. RedneckMuslin

        Yes, there is a secondary meaning. There is a guy running for President named Santorum. Can you imagine parents naming their kid that?

  5. SayItWithWookies

    It's so refreshing to see teabaggers taking something like inclusiveness and asking themselves "Now how can we use this as a weapon?" Mike Adams' dildo collection must be pretty fucking intimidating is all I can imagine.

      1. Rotundo_

        I always wondered what the dimensions on an official size and weight league regulation Dildo Mallet would be: Roughly the size of a croquet mallet or somewhat larger? Depending on the rules of said league or regulatory body the handle length must be defined as well. I'm guessing here, but I am thinking croquet sized mallet with a shorter handle for close in defense and offense use.

    1. SorosBot

      It's a support system for a very successful minor league basketball team that has managed to get away with not paying its players.

    2. Gorillionaire

      Chapel Hill is actually a very progressive little town. Dudes like this "conservative professor" are around but they are out numbered and therefore are a hundred thousand times more victim syndrome enhanced.

  6. elviouslyqueer

    1. We can get rid of scores of leftist professors who create a climate of “intimidation” and “offense” in the classroom.

    Oh. You mean "a climate in which students are taught to think for themselves." Right. Can't have that at all.

    1. Beowoof

      Thinking is considered dangerous, they want to hear how wonderful Jeebus is and how the Kenyan, Muslim, Socialist in the White House needs to be removed post haste. Thinking we don't need no stinking thinking.

  7. Trannysurprise

    They should be happy. "Tea Bagger" sounds so much more polite than "Bunch of Racists and Homophobes."

  8. FakaktaSouth

    Oh yeah, like I am gonna give a rat's ass about offending a bunch of cocktard bullshit twats that didn't know enough not to name themselves (cause THEY STARTED IT) after something people do for fun and profit. (holla back Callista G!). Oh, is that just me? Whatever.

    1. prommie

      Yeah, fuck them shitbag fuckstick dipshit ratbastards, they all have their heads up their asses and shit for brains. Motherfucking shitstains, they can go shit in their hats. Ahh, its nice to reminisce about when Dad was still alive! You remind me of my Dad, is that the way it usually goes, dudes fall for chicks who rmind them of theiur father?

      1. FakaktaSouth

        Dang. If I had a dollar for every dude with daddy issues…plus, HEY that was my first swears of the day. I have teabagging tourettes. (and no class, I KNOW)

          1. Rotundo_

            Does it follow string theory? And wouldn't it be a hoot to hear Hawking on a profanity laced tirade on his little robo-swedish vocal generator? You would think they could auto-tune his ass now and make him sound like Mariah Carey…

        1. Jukesgrrl

          Murrica always elects presidents with daddy issues, too. Or mebbe only people with daddy issues RUN for president.

        2. Pristine_ODummy

          I dunno, girl. Seems to me you got WAY more class than all these ball-dipping, cocksucking, ass-whoring motherfuckers in our political system.

          Wut? Was that rude?

  9. SorosBot

    "2. We can enlist the help of campus leftists in restoring the standard of “proof beyond a reasonable doubt” in campus sexual assault and sexual harassment cases."

    So the campus Republicans are filing frivolous claims of sexual harassment over a mean word because they want to make it easier for them to get away with rape. And they admit it here. Nice.

    1. Fare la Volpe

      We had a big name libertarian speaker come to my university my last semester, and the main topic of discussion was how the sexual harassment code was "too broad" in his words. He genuinely argued that men were getting in trouble on "trumped up" charges of rape and sexual assault (not even harassment, full blown assault; like semen deposits, vaginal tearing, and facial bruises are things that can be faked).

      The whole school facebook bombed the event page and the women's center stood in silent protest when he finally arrived. An entire block's worth of students stared him dead in the eyes as he minced toward the auditorium. I was so proud.

        1. Fare la Volpe

          For the life of me I can't remember, and the page has long since been deleted. Weaselly little fucker though; face like a rat. He was the head of some bullshit Paultard lobbying firm like "Freedom Liberty Eagle Babies Ronald Reagan Inc. Ltd. Says NO to Big University Socialism LLC."

      1. SorosBot

        If you listen to some of the MRA (men's rights activist) groups, it sounds like there is a plague of women making false charges of rape, and so prosecuting rape must be made even harder. They must be right, since rape victims are just treat so well in our society, pretending to have raped must be so fun! And of course, any rape that someone is not convicted of means the bitch made it up; it's not like we're dealing with a crime that's unusually hard to prove beyond a reasonable doubt or anything.

        1. Fare la Volpe

          I have an old buddy from high school who posts crap from those misogynists regularly. He's become convinced that feminists are the sole force keeping him from getting a job, a decent house, or in-laws that like him. The fact that he's an indolent loaf of a man with no work experience, a poor credit history, and an inflated sense of self-importance has nothing to do with it, natch.

          1. SorosBot

            Of course it's the feminists' fault; here he is without a job when some places are hiring women, who are of course by nature inferior and worse at everything than him, as a white (am I safe in assuming that?) man.

          2. Fare la Volpe

            Blindingly white. If you call him on it he'll claim 1/32 Native ancestry or some bull, and argue that makes him a minority too for real you guys!

      2. Pristine_ODummy

        Kudos to the whole fucking school for standing in solidarity against that prick.

        It's assholes like this that make you worry for the LayDeez in your life, you know?

  10. Mort_Sinclair

    All the professor has to do is call them tea "partiers" using air quotes every time s/he utters the word "party" or "partiers." There. Fixed. That's not to say that conservative twit couldn't benefit from a little tea "partying."

  11. Lionel[redacted]Esq

    It will all be fine, as the 'baggers are going back to their original nickname: The Cockgobblers.

    1. Beowoof

      I don't know, some folks I know who lovingly engage in that activity would be offended at having these twits lumped in with them.

  12. imissopus

    Sounds to me like some granola-crunching hippie coed turned down the advances of a certain UNC professor, forcing him to seek release by masturbating to the rape scenes in Ayn Rand novels. The campus leftists will pay for that!

  13. Poindexter718

    Perhaps the young lady's delicate sensibilities would be less offended if the professor noted that many teabaggers are gay?

  14. OneYieldRegular

    Nothing helps foster a sense of community in a university like trying to "get rid of scores" of one's colleagues.

  15. widestanceshakedown

    Taxed Enough Already/Bitchin' About Government = TEABAG, so STFU, freaks, you started the whole mess being too stupid to know the term was already taken.

    Stop stealing terms for sexual activity just so you can whine about them later.

  16. HistoriCat

    In the GOP hive mind, “lady” means “sex thing used for lifeless sex between gay Craigslist hookups.”

    That is a beautiful sentence – bravo Kirsten!

  17. BklynIlluminati

    Can we still discuss the Cleveland Steamer that Boehner and McConnell keep performing on Senate and Congressional discourse??

    1. littlebigdaddy

      In which case I would guess that the students are too busy catching hurricane-fed waves at Wrightsville Beach to give a rat's ass about this.

    2. 102415

      I have fond memories of the beach there. Now it's choked with ugly cheap looking million dollar tacky piles.

  18. Pristine_ODummy

    For those who don't know "Dr. Mike," what he really meant by this: "2. We can enlist the help of campus leftists in restoring the standard of “proof beyond a reasonable doubt” in campus sexual assault and sexual harassment cases." is "We can get those goddamn whorish cunts on campus to STFU already about how they're being sexually harrassed and raped because if they didn't WANT that to happen, they would wear burqas and attend Anal Roberts U, or whatever."

      1. Pristine_ODummy

        He's the kind of raging asshole that, if you have female relatives who don't conceal-carry and aren't prepared to blow someone's nuts off, you'd worry if they got within a mile of the goober.

  19. DashboardBuddha

    Some teabagger person made a video avowing that teabaggers are ok with the term teabagger.

    teabagger also.

  20. owhatever

    He said, "obscene sexualized references." Heh-heh-heh. Republicans talkin' dirty before they get busted for some weird sex act with another hillbilly.

    1. DahBoner

      "Republicans talkin' dirty before they get busted for some weird sex act with another hillbilly

      Sounds an awful lot like "foreplay", not their usual get me another beer, woman!

  21. HelmutNewton

    I dunno what the crybaby teabaggers are getting so upset about. According to Urban Dictionary, teabagger can also mean: "One who carries large bags of packaged tea for shipment; or a person who is unaware that they have said or done something foolish, childlike, noobish, lame, or inconvenient."

  22. CrunchyKnee

    I'll stop calling you stupid, racist, fucktards "tea-baggers" when you stop saying "democrat party."

  23. Gleem_McShineys

    "The time has come for conservative students to take the gloves off and start fighting campus indoctrination"

    Let me guess: because of the bare handed fighting, you're probably going to call yourselves something like the Bare Fist Beaters.

  24. DaRooster

    "The time has come for conservative students to take the gloves off…"

    Bring that shit on! I can only hope it comes down to that…

    1. NorthStarSpanx

      But these Christian thugs have been shoving their Christian-First/Second Amendment-Creationism-righteousness down our throats with State Legislative bodies support lo these many years, what do they look like with their gloves off?

  25. SexySmurf

    2. We can enlist the help of campus leftists in restoring the standard of “proof beyond a reasonable doubt” in campus sexual assault and sexual harassment cases.

    I hate to be the Nerd in the Red Shirt once again, but sexual harassment is a civil offense and the standard to prove guilt as always been a preponderance of the evidence not beyond a reasonable doubt. You would think a professor of criminology would know this.

  26. mumbly_joe

    The time has come for conservative students to take the gloves off and start fighting campus indoctrination by turning the weapons of the left against the leftists themselves.

    This is hardly a new strategy on the right. See everything David Horowitz actually says that isn't about how muslims are evil or anyone slightly to the left of his own fascist ass is synonymous with the Black Panthers, (who he will take great pains to tell you he used to be a member of, even though his contemporaries were pretty sure he was a right-wing infiltrator, even back then.)

    They're all about equating diversity of ideology -even when that ideology is literally that science is evil- to other forms of diversity and claiming that people who don't believe in science should be placed in science departments, because multiculturalism. They also like to claim that calling screeching racists out on their screeching racism shows that liberals are the ones who are really "intolerant", for not being tolerant of blatant racism.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      Gotta give fact and fiction equal time, ya know — tolerating batshit crazy right-wing nonsense is the teabaggers' take on "tolerance". (a.k.a. "fair and balanced", in certain media circles.)

  27. the_problem_child

    Conservatives hate evolution. In this case, the language has evolved without them. Good luck with that.

  28. BornInATrailer

    Given the history of conservatives, how long before we find the Tea Party lady student has posted a craigslist add looking for someone to "dunk" on her while she furiously flicks the bean?

  29. UnionAgitator

    “The time has come for conservative students to take the gloves off”

    Why are the nutsuckers wearing gloves while teabagging?

    They’re such prissy little pervs.

  30. Dr_Zoidberg

    As a woman, I am hella more upset over the restrictions of my reproductive freedoms than I am over hearing 'tea bagger'.

  31. Fare la Volpe

    The comments are priceless. I cannot believe anyone would say or think this irony-free:

    The only truly oppressed group is the group that is identified as evangelical Christian. If I want to experience vitriol and disapprobation, all I have to do is talk about my Christian faith in any of my college classes.

    Hal, will you concede that evangelical Christians are an oppressed minority?

    1. Rotundo_

      When Snowbilly Griftqueen is jumping up and down repeatedly and they're too preoccupied with masturbation to find anything to get offended about. Though there are signs even that act is getting old with republicans in general (Griftqueen, not masturbation), but I'm betting there are some baggers that still spring wood at the thought of her.

  32. nappyduggs

    How about black students being assigned essays on "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn"?

    Ladies are capable of hearing a term relating to cocks 'n dicks without blushing and getting engorged (paging Dr. Rod Johnson!) It is usually those of the closeted gay male persuasion who can't seem to get clandestine peen off the brain.

    I see this as an extention of black conservatives calling liberals racist, rich people claiming the poor don't pay enough taxes, or Sarah Palin defenders calling her critics sexist…This strategy of mis-using things they were supposedly against in the first place is getting bizarre. I can't wait for Rick Santorum to accuse someone of homophobia.

  36. mavenmaven

    So this jerk wrote a book called "Feminists Say the Darndest Things: A Politically Incorrect Professor Confronts "Womyn" on Campus"
    This review suggest that Mr Adams might have a "problem" … “At the outset of his second jaunt across the campus, the highly opinionated professor of criminal justice at the University of North Carolina–Wilmington explains his reason for targeting feminists: “I want to find out why they hate us.” Unleashing salvos of sarcasm, he collects his correspondence addressed to feminist students, professors, activists and administrators, including some letters never mailed (probably for the best). Claiming that “feminist scholar” is an oxymoron, Adams asserts that feminists have no sense of humor, are the biggest censors on college campuses, lack the courage to act as individuals, engage in “widespread academic and personal dishonesty” and attempt to solve problems by changing society rather than their own behavior.”

    Bet he likes watching football with his guy students!

    1. unclejeems

      The first thing people who don't get it do, is to accuse their opponents of lacking a sense of humor.

        1. Pristine_ODummy

          Despite the Jews' repeatedly pointing out that it's hard to maintain your sense of humour when someone's stomping on your head with jackboots, haha.

    2. ShaveTheWhales

      You know,this almost makes me wish that I lived closer to the Right Coast. I'm a 63-yo straight male. I've considered myself a feminist for at least forty years, and I'm seriously inclined to demonstrate my courage to act as an individual to this asshole.

  37. RadioEnron9/11

    Cue Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever,
    A little American History lesson: You see fellow patriots, we are really just conservatives here. Sticking to founding principles. Before there was the Tea Party, they called themselves teabaggers. What was it, a month or so before the Dick Army, et. al. got all crimson? And then they realized why we were snickering. And we snicker to this day that the Right Wing of the Republican Party initially named themselves after a sex act at which they are, no doubt, proficient.

  38. glamourdammerung

    And I protest the casual racism that is considered acceptable from movement conservatism.

    But given this moron's statement about women, he is merely trying to use imaginary chivalry that apparently only exists on this one issue to whine about how mean folks are to conservatives "for no reason".

    1. Pristine_ODummy

      No, no he isn't. You misunderestimate Dr. Mike. His *real* intent is to get those horrible Cunted-Americans to lighten up and accept *actual* rape and sexual harrassment without whining about it all the time.

      Check out Sadly, No for details of Dr. Mike. He really is a rat-faced testiclesucker.

  39. glamourdammerung

    Too bad this clown is too stupid and/or dishonest to admit that there is a term for what he is demanding: political correctness.

  40. mip6467

    Glad I wasn't the one to have to point out that it's UNCW, and not Chapel Hill. Not that I want to call out my alma mater (UNCW was good to me), but I would hate to think he got so much credit as to have people believe he could teach at Chapel Hill. He's a bit of a byword, at UNCW, for being an idiot. His anti-feminine rants are legendary, so this is all very amusing…

  41. tarheelbornbred

    Check your facts. The University of North Carolina is a public ivy, located in Chapel Hill, NC. The person of whom you are referring to teaches at University of North Carolina at Wilmington. Referring to UNCW as UNC is an egregious insult to the southern piece of heaven. I would appreciate a published correction to this article. Thank you.

  42. fuflans

    well ok but you tea people are still stupid, fat, uninformed, screechy, whiney, short-sighted, self-centered, hypocritical and an absolute disaster in office.

    but if you don't like bagger, that's your right i guess.

    I figured teabagging would be right up the conservative "ladies" alley considering they don't enjoy consensual sex.

  44. ChuckyK

    Hello all.
    Being new to this site I will take some time to introduce myself.
    As you can see my name is Chuck
    I look at myself as being Progressive.
    I am self employed. Self reliant and caring to those underprivileged.
    I am a big fan of Jon Stewart, Steven Colbert, Rachel Maddow and Keith Olbermann.
    The President, Mr. Obama is, in my opinion, the greatest thing since sliced white bread.
    Anyway, I'm rambling.
    I must go and feed my pets.
    Good to meet you all.
    Before I go, if I remember right, and I may be wrong but, what ever happened to the thumbs down?
    Just that I have some friends curious.

  45. lulzmonger

    Hypocritical assclown is hypocritical.

    Teabaggers came up with the name – & they knew damn well exactly what it meant right from the start (some of them are/were HALO-addicted online geeks & had done the teabag dance-o-triumph over fallen foes, & had it done to them). Does "Teabag Teh Dems Before They Teabag YOU" ring any bells?

    Now they're all butthurt because it makes them look like the sick fucks they are.
    A river: cry me one.

  46. Dexter Linwood

    The Associate Provost for Institutional Diversity and Inclusion

    I'm as liberal as they come, but good lord with that formal position name.

    You know, this is all the baggers' fault for being so incredibly self-unaware at the beginning. We're calling you what you called yourselves from day one on television, you idiots.

    BTW, Mr. Adams knows how hard it is to get rid of professors, let alone for something they said, right? Yeah, good look with that conspiratorial crusade you douchebag.

  47. Redhead

    A – It's the University of North Carolina Wilmington, not UNC, that employs this looney tune. Totally different school, 3 hours away.

    B – Adams is suing the school claiming he was discriminated against for being a white Christian male who talks shit about the school every single chance he gets because the school passed him up for a promotion (that was not promised or guaranteed). Four years ago. And he's spent his time since then being butthurt and crying about it (oh and making comments to women in his classes on a daily basis about how they're the inferior, weaker sex, and comments which have garnered complaints that he sexually harasses them.)

        1. Pristine_ODummy

          Why're you making excuses for Mike, Biely? Oh, wait, I get it. You're friends, aren't you?


  48. ttommyunger

    What was left out of this account was the fact that the professor and the female student were alone in an empty, locked classroom at the time. While expounding on the finer points of political discourse he unzipped and produced his penis and testes to illustrate the meaning of his treatise and at this point the female student protested and insisted he put them back in his pants. Also not mentioned was the fact that the professor was unable to do so due the the grip the young woman had on his member, also, too…

    Son of Bitch, next thing you Jimmy Hoffa and a bunch of union thugs will be kicking the shit out of conservatives on campus.
