Recently the Healthcare bill was made into law over the Republican objections of “It’s too big” … “it will have us on our knees” … “your cramming it down our throats” seriously when have those objections ever worked?
After all the those objections failed, the queen of the teabaggers Sarah Palin, ex-half term governor of Alaska current um, nothing, put up a picture on her facebook page with the names of 20 Congressman who voted for healthcare in red districts targeted with gun sites. Oddly Bill Owens the Democratic Place filler from a district that hadn’t elected a Democrat since the Civil War, who Sarah “Tweeter Quitter” Palin campaigned against last year wasn’t in her sites. I guess she wasn’t up for a rematch.
Under the gun sites she said, “Don’t Retreat, instead – RELOAD”. Now she claims that this wasn’t a death threat that she’s just ignorant boob that has no idea about what the meaning of the words she uses are, I’m willing to believe that.
However statements like this are fueling the fire of Teabaggers who are looking for an excuse to be violent. So far they’ve focused their rage at 10-year old boys and Parkinson victims, but they say they are going to escalate the violence. Maybe target the seniors who will be able to afford their medicines under the healthcare act, or the babies that can’t be denied coverage for pre-existing conditions.
I’ve read articles that say this is all the Democrats fault, as last summer they should have seen the idiot protesters at the town hall meetings and bowed down to the 5% of the nation that was trying to stop what roughly 70% of the nation wanted. Because giving in to violence always works.
Now these teabaggers who are complaining about taxes even though those that pay taxes are the beneficiaries of the largest middle class tax cut in history. The ones screaming “Baby killer” at people who pass a bill that will make it so people who make less than $50,000 a year won’t have face the choice of going bankrupt in order to have a kid. The ones who think activist judges have mind control powers that stop their kids from praying in schools. These people are threatening violence.
These people can point to all the Fox News polls they want:
They can say how Fox News covering an empty field that was supposed to be a teabagger protest but no one showed up is proof that the media is slanted against them.
They can spout all the stupid things they want, but when they start calling for a Civil War with the justification that God is behind them, they might want to remember one thing. God has always been on the side of the one with the larger Army, and the US Army is pretty damn big.
In closing I’d like to respond to Sarah Palin’s question, “How’s that hopey, changey thing workin’ out for ya?” To her I say, “Shut-Up Stupid, It’s working out fine. How’s that Governing thing working out for you? Oh yeah you quit that.”
