Temper Tantrum Tuesday: What I’ve learned from the Teabaggers

Teabaggers claim they have seen no evidence of Racism at their rallies.

The teabaggers are having a wonderful time educating people about things that go against the liberal bias of reality. For instance they let us know about threats that if you just paid attention to the real world you would never know about. Like these horrible threats.

House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, says, "This (health care) bill is the greatest threat to our freedom in the 19 years that I've been in Washington."

Nuclear proliferation? Not as big a threat as allowing children to remain on their parents insurance until they are 25.

Dependence on Foreign oil? Not as big a threat as not allowing insurance companies to set lifetime caps on coverage.

The Great Recession that devastated the middle class? Not as big a threat as not allowing insurance companies to deny payments based on unrelated pre-conditions.

Terrorism? Not as big a threat as allowing workers to keep their coverage after they leave their jobs.

If you look at the world through the liberal bias of reality you would think there were bigger threats to freedom but the teabaggers are ready to set you straight.

Other teabaggers think there are other threats as well:

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., says "that (the gay) agenda is the greatest threat to our freedom that we face today."

The liberal bias of logic would tell you that allowing gays to serve in the military at a time when our forces are stretched to the breaking point would preserve freedom, but luckily Tom Coburn is impervious to the liberal bias of logic.

Ex-Republican congressman from Arizona and now full-time nothing Tom Tancredo says President Barack Obama is "the greatest threat to the U.S. ... the greatest threat to our liberty" today.

The liberal bias of math would have you believe that because Obama got an overwhelming majority of the votes he should be allowed to be President, but the teabaggers know that numbers have a liberal bias.

The teabaggers have changed the way politics is debated as well. Instead of using the liberally biased way of looking at a politician’s record to see how that politician might vote they have found a simpler way, play the Hitler 7 degrees of Kevin Bacon, if Kevin Bacon was Hitler. Here’s how it works:

Mother Theresa had a moustache, Hitler had a moustache, therefore Mother Theresa is Hitler.

Any facts in the matter are irrelevant.

They have also changed the way to leave messages in comment sections. Instead of reading the article and pointing out what they agree or disagree with they just look for the word “change” and leave a message in all caps, socialism. Example.

“I like how Dominos changed their crust from the cardboard tasting crust to the new garlic crust.”


Finally they have taken the rallying cry from someone they despise to use as a slogan.

When Chief Running Bull yelled, “I want my country back.” He literally wanted his country back.

When teabaggers say it they have no clue what they mean.

It is impossible for me to take Tea Bagger seriously. They haven't taken a stand on a single issue that's made sense yet.

Even worse is the ones that originally had a point, even if slightly crazy, have caved in to the big money.
Rand Paul started his campaign wanting to cut the deficit by ending the military wars, legalizing pot, ending the Bush tax cuts, cutting out government services.
In order to get the GOP donor money he now wants the wars to keep going, keep the war on drugs, more tax cuts. The only thing he has left is to push cutting government services back to where they were in 1807. Simple math shows that even cutting all domestic government services won't balance the budget. But it will create 3,500 jobs a year as removing safety regulations from mining will kill that many miners.
