Since we're going to get a boatload of new material from these knuckleheads in the coming weeks I thought a new dedicated thread was called for. So without further adeiu I bring you their opening salvo....

Tea Party groups plan 'strike'

Quote :
Washington (CNN) - Some Tea Party activists from across the country are planning a 'national strike' on January 20, the one-year anniversary of President Barack Obama's inauguration.

The idea of holding an economic protest sprung up during the holidays as the result of a conference call held by various Tea Party group leaders, according to Allen Hardage, a conservative grassroots organizer from Georgia.

"Tea Party activists are frustrated that despite a huge turnout over the last year Congress is ignoring them," says Hardage, who is national operations director for the planned strike. "The question is that if the elected officials ignore you, what do you do to exercises your right to self-governance? So we decided to hold a National Day of Strike where we go after the large donors of the people pushing this radical agenda."

American Cartoonist Getting Death Threats from Tea Baggers

So you think only the Radical Islamic crowd can't take a joke?

You would be wrong.

An American cartoonist, Mark Fiore, is getting death threats today for daring to make fun of the Teabaggers.

Fiore, by the way, was declared the "undisputed guru of the [animated political cartoon] form" by that left wing commie rag the Wall Street Journal.

On his website, Fiore says...

"The death threats keep coming this fine morning. I guess the Tea Party crew is determined to have "death panels" one way or another. The dustup started because of this cartoon:"

IMO Michele Bachmann should be tied down with leathers in a psychiatric hospital.
She is on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

Tea Baggers Demand Transparency from Dems But Ban Media from Convention

Quote :
It is par for the course that there is a media blackout of the keynote speech by Sarah Palin on Saturday night, Feb. 6. But this event is sounding less like a grass-rootsy political affair by the minute. In addition to succumbing to the right wing’s irresistible impulse for secrecy and jackboot control of the media, tickets for the event in its fancy venue are priced for the elite at nearly $600 per person. (As this is being written, the convention website says tickets for the full meeting are sold out, but tickets for the Palin speech Saturday night are still available at $349.)

What this shows is that the new Tea Bag Party (TBP) is quickly taking on the qualities of a typical political party: Money-grubbing, dysfunction, hypocrisy and elitism.

The Press At The Tea-Party Convention

Quote :
As the right continues its secession from the middle and cocooning in its own media, we see the following press release:

Tea Party Nation has received hundreds of requests for press credentials to cover this convention. Everyone from a small town newspaper in Iowa to Fox News has asked for press credentials. We have had requests from Canada, England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, Norway, Croatia and Japan. We have been hard pressed to accommodate all of these requests and do not have the space or resources to support the entirety of the press corp. Indeed, we have asked the hotel if they would be willing to provide a press room during the convention. However, given these practical limitations, we have approved the following press organizations:

Fox News

Breitbart.com

Townhall.com

The Wall Street Journal

World Net Daily

Murdoch, Breitbart, and Farah. It gets creepier and creepier.

Latest tea party target: Its own convention
Quote :

Meanwhile, about 50 local tea party leaders from across Tennessee are planning to attend a sort of counter-convention caucus set for this Saturday in Nashville, while some activists are discussing staging protests outside next month’s convention, which will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center.

Joseph Farah’s Big Birther Speech

By David Weigel 2/5/10 10:10 PM

NASHVILLE — WorldNetDaily Editor-in-Chief Joseph Farah gave a 40-minute dinner speech to the National Tea Party Convention and spent at least 10 minutes of it on jokes and meandering observations about the citizenship of President Barack Obama. The strangeness started with a joke about an “international medical convention” where an American doctor bragged about putting a guy with “no birth certificate and no brain” into the White House. Then Farah shared his ambition to make sure that “signs saying ‘Where’s the Birth Certificate’” appear at every Obama campaign stop in 2012.

Those comments got a positive reaction from the audience, but I felt Farah start to lose the room when he entered a long digression on how, in his view, there was more proof that Jesus Christ was born than proof that Obama was born in Hawaii. Farah moved on — but later, he joked that he couldn’t say how old Obama was “because he doesn’t have a birth certificate.” That got applause — and when he finished, he got a short standing ovation.

Here we have a case of the real "Palin Derangement Syndrome"

Man Charged With Stockpiling Weapons Was Tea Partier, Palin Fan
Quote :
The Massachusetts man charged this week with stockpiling weapons after saying he feared an imminent "Armageddon" appears to have been active in the Tea Party movement, and saw Sarah Palin, who he said is on a "righteous 'Mission from God,'" as the only figure capable of averting the destruction of society.

As we reported yesterday, Gregory Girard, a Manchester technology consultant, was found with a stash of military grade weapons, explosive devices including tear gas and pepper ball canisters, camouflage clothing, knives, handcuffs, bulletproof vests and helmets, and night vision goggles, say police. They believe Girard, who pleaded not guilty at his arraignment, was "preparing for domestic and political turmoil," and feared martial law would soon be imposed.

Girard's wife said her husband had recently told her: "Don't talk to people, shoot them instead," and "it's fine to shoot people in the head because traitors deserve it."

Babbin Jokes About Norquist: I'm Glad He Didn't Fly That Plane Into An IRS Building (VIDEO)
Eric Kleefeld | February 19, 2010, 10:26AM

At the CPAC conference, Human Events editor Jed Babbin introduced Grover Norquist, the top anti-tax conservative activist in the country. During his introduction, Babbin joked about the recent airplane attack on an IRS building in Texas, which reportedly killed both the alleged perpetrator and a person who was in the building.

"And let me just say, I'm really happy to see Grover today," said Babbin. "He was getting a little testy in the past couple of weeks. And I was just really, really glad that it was not him identified as flying that airplane into the IRS building."

Tea Party Protesters Berate Apparent Parkinson's Victim (VIDEO)
Quote :
Tea Party protesters campaigning against health care reform on Tuesday berated and mocked a pro-reform advocate whose sign indicates that he has Parkinson's disease.

"Got Parkinson's? I do and you might. Thanks for your help," the older man's sign reads. He wandered over toward the anti-reform teabaggers protesting outside the district office of Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (D-Ohio). The Tea Party's responses, captured on video by the Columbus Dispatch, were unflinchingly callous and cruel.

"If you're looking for a handout, you're in the wrong part of town. Nothing for free. You have to work for everything you get," one teabagger chided, bending over to get in the face of the seated older man. The next Tea Partier dropped a dollar in his face, saying, "Start a pot, I'll pay for you. I'll decide when to give you money," in a mocking tone of voice. After some grumbling about "Communism," an offscreen teabagger yelled, "No more handouts!"

This was not the only Tea Party protest where opponents of health care reform forced comparisons to Communism or sounded like lunatics, but the Dispatch video lays bare a primary argument of the Tea Party protesters: America's 45 million uninsured aren't their problem. And they will tell a Parkinson's sufferer just that, with contempt, to his face.

Comedy that writes itself. The blank stares these imbeciles give the interviewer when he asks them specific questions as to what they're protesting about are priceless. Oh,and pay special attention to the guy's comment and how he's dressed about 1:10 into the video....

Carl Paladino's Emails: Tea Party-Backed Gov Candidate's Emails Feature Racism, Bestiality, Porn
Carl Paladino, the Tea Party favorite for New York governor, is in hot water yet again.

As the Huffington Post uncovered last week, the multi-millionaire developer has a history of being "racially offensive" and putting forth derogatory comments. Today the blog WNYmedia.net published a series of bombshell emails that Paladino sent around or forwarded on to friends, associates and coworkers.

These emails run the gamut from your standard email chain smut to greatly disturbing racist imagery. Many of the latter type of emails targeted President Obama and his wife Michelle.

Here's a brief rundown of some the emails obtained by the news outlet (WARNING: OFFENSIVE MATERIAL BELOW)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When confronted about the racist emails....
Quote :

"To me it's just humor," Paladino said. "I'm not racist and have never related Obama's color to my political taste for him." "I'm not ethnic sensitive to ethnic humor," he continued. "dago, spic, polack whatever we hear the humor every day."

What Teabaggers,Fox News,and Hate Radio will never admit.........
Taxes lowest in 60 years, thanks to Democrats and Obama
Quote :
In fact, tax refunds reached an all-time high this year in part because of the stimulus, the president said in his weekly address on Saturday. Meanwhile, taxes are at their lowest levels in 60 years, according to William Gale, co-director of the Tax Policy Center and director of the Retirement Security Project at the Brookings Institution.

"The relation between what is said in the tax debate and what is true about tax policy is often quite tenuous," Gale told Hotsheet. "The rise of the Tea Party at at time when taxes are literally at their lowest in decades is really hard to understand."

Voters Don't Like Tea Partiers
by Jonathan Singer, Wed May 05, 2010 at 10:47:04 AM EDT
Quote :

The findings of a new [url=ABC News/Washington Post poll:[/url]
Among registered voters, 15 percent say they’d be more likely to support a candidate for Congress who’s associated with the Tea Party movement – but 24 percent say they’d be more apt to oppose such a candidate. Focusing on strong sentiment produces a similar result: Just 9 percent are “much” more likely to support a Tea Party candidate, vs. 17 percent much more likely to oppose one.

Among all Americans, 34 percent say the more they hear about the Tea Party the more they like it, but 43 percent instead say the more they hear the less they like it.
Quote :
The media continues to be fascinated by the group of ardent conservative Republicans and Republican-leaning Independents who form the base of the GOP -- the type of people who still approved of George W. Bush back when 70 percent or more of the nation disapproved of the job he was doing as President -- but when it comes to actual voters, it turns out that there isn't nearly as much interest. And if there is interest, it's not positive. Many more say they're likely to oppose than support at Tea Party-backed candidate than support one. Many more say the more they hear about the Tea Parties the less they like them. Perhaps it's time to stop the fascination with this exceedingly overly covered group?
