|It's NOT about his race!|
|No, seriously, it has nothing to do with Obama being black...|
|We would say the same thing if the president was white!|
|It's not racist when you spell it wrong!|
|This isn't racist, everyone knows Latin Americans invented nationalized health care!|
|If it's one thing I hate, it's a half-breed loosely-woven Indian cloth...|
|So, the dumbest guy in Kenya can become a constitutional law professor, Senator and eventually president of the United States? Damn, that "click-clack" talk they do must be binary code, smart sons a bitches! Fastest runners too? Dammit!|
|Oh please, now you're going to tell me that referencing "massa" on his plantation is racist? What's next, you gonna say "Tar baby" is a racist term?|
|This can't be racist, it's isn't even ABOUT black people!|
|Oh please, you liberals will read racism into everything! Give it a rest already!|
|See! It's not "racism" it's "concern". "Concern" that a black guy will come and take all of our money and give it to his black friends back in the 'hood.|
|"Kenyan" is SO not the Teabagger code word for "nigger"! And, besides, I used ebonics to talk like those people, I'm not a racist, I'm an interpreter!|
So, ok, not all Teabaggers are racists, they just don't give enough shit to the ones who are. It's like how these same guys blame all Muslims for terrorism because they don't speak out enough against the extremists. If I said "All Christians are hate-filled, racist, homophobic assholes" because of the funeral protests of the Westboro Baptist (God Hates Fags) Church, every Christian I know would say I was completely off-base and wrong as wrong can be... and you know what, they would be correct to say that. However, it's perfectly fine to say "If those Muslims don't do everything they can to help us get rid of the extremists in their religion, then they're just as guilty in their complicity." It's the same thing. If the Tea Party isn't all a bunch of complicit racists, then they need to start helping round up all the "extremists" in their party who are and kick them all out. Otherwise, they're guilty by association, just like Obama and William Ayers...
But, I digress, the point is that not all Teabagger protesters are racists.
|This is the excetion, not the rule.|
|See, it's not about racism, it's about keeping people who can't speak English out of "are country".|
|This combines both the "American Values" of anti-intellectualism with the completely non-racist obsession with Obama being a foreigner because he has a funny name and brown skin. Perfectly innocent.|
|If you want to be a true "patriotic", you need to descend, preferably into a hole or deep crevasse.|
|Translation: "Senate & Congress, read it before "You'ns" vote, if you can read."|
Ah, come on now, not ALL Teabaggers are uneducated and just reacting angrily with a combination of ignorance, fear, latent prejudice and misplaced patriotism! You liberals always pick out the worst possible examples to make us look bad. You do it all the time, always demonizing the Republicans and the Tea Party and we never do anything like that to you guys. It's all the Democrats, always, every time. (Don't read my last post, by the way, may contain proof of hypocrisy!)
Ok, ok. Not ALL Teabaggers are racists who can't spell.
|If my dog can't be bothered to read, neither can I! Also, stop "crushing the rich" with your talk of a 2% tax increase!!! Those people create JOBS! What? Oh, I'm here in the middle of a weekday afternoon because I'm laid off right now...|
|Damn that socialized medicine! Give me good old, privately-funded Medicare!|
|Look at all these people, working together for one common goal... of protesting a society working together for one common goal...|
|That's right, GOVERNMENT! Keep your damn government hands off of my government-provided socialized medicine safety net. Don't steal from MY socialized medicine fund to pay for socialized medicine!|
|Obama has the crisis of "competnce", not us!|
|Ayn Rand took government money to get medical procedures done. That's your hero of non-reliance and personal accountability? Sounds about right...|
|Faked? Probably. Accurate? Definitely.|
Now I'm just being a jerk. Everyone knows the Teabaggers aren't racists, they aren't uneducated, they aren't willfully naive or blissfully ignorant. They are hard-working, tax-paying men and women who are fed up with the government getting bigger and bigger and our taxes going up and up. It doesn't matter that Obama lowered taxes for the entire middle class, because the whole time he was doing it, he was imagining himself raising taxes on us instead, and cheating in your mind is still cheating! So whatever, Obama lowered taxes for the middle class, but he wants to raise taxes on the rich! Don't you know we depend on rich people to create jobs?! Sure, we're at record national unemployment right now and the largest hiring agencies in the country right now are state and federal governments, even though they have eliminated nearly 350,000 jobs since Obama took office. Which, by the way, doesn't count as "reducing the size of government" because we all know Obama wants to grow government, and if he oversaw the laying off of nearly 350,000 government employees, it was only so he could make way for more welfare cases and illegal immigrants to come in and get abortions and not say prayers in school! Cutting taxes and reducing government only counts when it's tax cuts for rich people and reducing government services to poor people, everything else is just more Kenyan Socialist mind tricks!
You just don't understand. Teabaggers only want to get "our country" back. They just want things to go back to the way they were in the good old days!
|We want to go back to a time when we should be in the kitchen right now...|
|We just want to go back to a time when Jesus was the only God allowed in America and it was ok to publicly discriminate against everyone who disagreed!|
|We want to go back to a time when all men had to carry guns, you know, to prevent rustlers from stealin their horses...|
|We don't want the "new" Hitler, we want to go back to when the "old" one was still around!|
When the Teabaggers say they want to "take back America", what they mean is "we want to take back white America". Complain about it all you want, but what else about the "good old days" do you long for?
Or is it that you want to go back to the "good old days" when women and minorities had no rights and couldn't challenge white men for supremacy? Oh wait, no, that's racist and Teabaggers aren't racist!
Or is it that you want to go back to the "good old days" when the middle class was the strongest in the world and a man could provide for his family comfortably on an honest day's work? Well, the rich were taxed at anywhere from a 70% to a 90% tax rate then, and we all know the Teabaggers are against taxes almost as much as they're against immigrants, so that can't be it either...
Or maybe it's that you guys just want to go back to before cellphones, computers and the internet and stuff were around, is that it? It's not racism, sexism or homophobia... it's just regular old technophobia? You want to drive cars again that get 10 miles to the gallon and can be fixed with a monkey wrench and a hammer? You long for those post-war fashions? You miss McCarthyism? What exactly is it about the "good old days" and "your America" that you feel you have lost that you, all of a sudden, in the last 4 years, have decided you have to "get back"?
Ah, NOW I get it! You want THAT America back! The America where a woman knew her place. The America where the MAN was in charge. It wasn't about race, because everyone just KNEW who the entitled race was. You didn't have to be racist towards blacks and minorities, society did it for you! You didn't have to fight the government for the right to protect your way of life, because the government was on YOUR SIDE back then! I totally get it! Teabaggers aren't racists, they just want to go back to when coloreds knew their place without having to be told. Teabaggers aren't racists, they just want to go back to when Mexicans stayed in their labor camps where they belonged and only came out to make tacos and tamales and sing their happy Speedy Gonzales music and maybe record "La Bamba". Teabaggers aren't sexists, they just want to go back to when a woman's place was in the home and they didn't bitch about their rights because they didn't have any. Teabaggers aren't anti-government, they just want to go back to when the government put the needs of white males above everyone else's again.
How does that southern slogan go again? The one that is invoked to defend flying the confederate flag over state buildings? "Heritage, not hate"? Yeah, that's it. It's heritage, not hate! Teabaggers don't hate women, coloreds, immigrants and homos... they just want to go back to a time when those people knew their place and stayed there. Oh, and they want to cut taxes for the rich, so they can lay off more working class Americans and ship their operations overseas and make billions in profits doing it. Don't ask me how that's in their best interests, it's all explained in detail on a sign up there somewhere...
