I went looking for loonies at the Tea Party

I went to the DC tea party with some trepidation. The anti Obama racist rhetoric of Dr Yeagley had me preparing for the worst. Of course I know AOW and Frogburger are not racists, but at any large gathering there is the possibility of the lowest common denominator.

I marched with friends and checked the signs and could not find one. The protesters were well behaved and polite. About the only off the map talk was the focus on the birth certificate. In an ideal world Obama submits his birth certificate to the document lab and reasonable people live with the results. President Biden using a martyred image of Obama ( disqualified by a fake BC) would produce more extreme leftist legislation than Obama.

Of course many of us pointed to the bug eyed commies Bush= Hitler bit. This was in reference to the war on terror. Frequently the same Commies call 9-11 the Reich stag fire. When a person says Hitler was a great speaker too, this is to point out Obama is a populist loony. There is nothing racial and given the messiah talk and iconic photos a few grains of truth.

Obama pointed to a post racial America. Indeed if America is to be considered post racial than Obama must be subjected to the same treatment as other presidents. I will point out that we do understand the vile history of comparing Blacks to Apes. Such a attack would indeed be racist, especially given the history of this type of comment. Yet historically one can see Ape Lincoln and Bush portrayed as a Chimp.

The special history of Blacks makes some satire problematic. If Obama is portrayed as a con man, this is another stereotype and would be racist. We can not ignore our history when we respond to dreadful policies.

The Tea Party was on message and not cluttered with extraneous themes like your average so called Peace Protest. When I visited those farce Protests I either see the US flag burning or the dreaded Pseudostinian flag. What does the cop killer fraud Mummia Abul Fraud Jamaal or Poultry abuse have to do with Peace anyway.

Maybe it is time for a different type of activism. The theme should be "There is No Free Lunch". The Obama talk of imaginary savings and crony panels is smoke and mirrors. Of course tort and insurance form goes by the wayside.

We are more divided than ever before and much of it lies at the feet of the media. Yet big media is dying with the exception of Fox that offers something different.

The Duck seems to think I quoted the number 2,000,000. I was claiming a very lowball 200,000 and that is way too low. The people were still arriving as others left.

The Tea Party movement still needs star power. However, if a comedian were to entertain us with poignant satire it would lose some of its down home appeal.

The Tea Party People do need a better logo than the Marxist clenched fist. How about an empty wallet.

I'm sorry to be off topic, Beak but over at Stormfront.Lite (i.e. Gay Eagle) there is an interesting response to Yeagley's call for a race war.
Seems that someone finally figured out that Gay Eagle has the hots for Obama.

Any thoughts?

I don't know where to start. Obviously, I STRONGLY disagree with this statement. He IS a con man, period. Why sugar coat it just because he is black. If his worshipful followers don't like it-fuck them.

Calling him Hitler is a different story all together. If we're going to go down that route, we might as well go the whole hog and refer to him as Obama$Hitler. Look familiar?

You sir, are a liar. Flag burning is extremely rare and you have never seen it at a peace rally. You are a liar.

Beak this one is a pretty funny tea-bagger moment:

Protesters who attended Saturday’s Tea Party rally in Washington found a new reason to be upset: Apparently they are unhappy with the level of service provided by the subway system.

Rep. Kevin Brady asked for an explanation of why the government-run subway system didn’t, in his view, adequately prepare for this past weekend’s rally to protest government spending and government services.

Seriously.

The Texas Republican on Wednesday released a letter he sent to Washington’s Metro system complaining that the taxpayer-funded subway system was unable to properly transport protesters to the rally to protest government spending and expansion.

“These individuals came all the way from Southeast Texas to protest the excessive spending and growing government intrusion by the 111th Congress and the new Obama administration,” Brady wrote. “These participants, whose tax dollars were used to create and maintain this public transit system, were frustrated and disappointed that our nation’s capital did not make a great effort to simply provide a basic level of transit for them.”

A spokesman for Brady says that “there weren’t enough cars and there weren’t enough trains.” Brady tweeted as much from the Saturday march. “METRO did not prepare for Tea Party March! More stories. People couldn’t get on, missed start of march. I will demand answers from Metro,” he wrote on Twitter.

Brady says in his letter to Metro that overcrowding forced an 80-year-old woman and elderly veterans in wheelchairs to pay for cabs. He concludes that it “appears that Metro added no additional capacity to its regular weekend schedule.”

Now your task is to figure out which way this bozo voted on funding for the Metro. Come on, he's a right winger from Texass, shouldn't be tough.

And it was deleted already. ;-)

Btw, one doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to figure that out.

No response to my calling out your sniveling lie about flag burning, Beak?

Once again, you are a false patriot and a liar. Now, can you defend your assertion or do you recant your lie?

Flag burning was not uncommon at the RNC protests in NYC.
