Florida Teabaggers changing their name...

Ever notice how right-wing groups who want to infringe on others' liberty, love to put "liberty" in their name?

"Jolted by the re-election of President Barack Obama, the defeat of congressional tea party icon Allen West and the cracking of Republican anti-tax orthodoxy during the recent federal budget showdown, the tea party movement is trying to rebrand and repackage itself in South Florida."

"The South Florida Tea Party — the group that helped Marco Rubio launch his Senate bid and that hosted Donald Trump during his last flirtation with a presidential run — is shedding the words “tea party” as it undergoes a name change."

'“We felt for branding reasons that we wanted to differentiate ourselves from certain organizations that have the name ‘tea party’ and we can’t control,” said Everett Wilkinson, leader of the organization that will now be called the National Liberty Federation."

4. The right thinks they own the words liberty and freedom

and heritage and the flag and the military.
I see freedom gun stores and liberty auto sales and heritage dry cleaners. I never shop at those places.

19. Yeah I hate that crap

I've come to instantly pigeonhole a group or venture when I see those words.

If I hear: freedom, patriot, liberty, enterprise etc, my first reaction is "Uh huh, right wing scumbags".

8. NLF - perfect

The Viet Cong (Việt cộng), or National Liberation Front (NLF), was a political organization and army in South Vietnam and Cambodia that fought the United States and South Vietnamese governments during the Vietnam War (1959–1975), and emerged on the winning side. It had both guerrilla and regular army units, as well as a network of cadres who organized peasants in the territory it controlled. Many soldiers were recruited in South Vietnam, but others were attached to the People's Army of Vietnam (PAVN), the regular North Vietnamese army. During the war, communists and anti-war spokesmen insisted the Viet Cong was an insurgency indigenous to the South, while the U.S. and South Vietnamese governments portrayed the group as a tool of Hanoi. Although the terminology distinguishes northerners from the southerners, communist forces were under a single command structure set up in 1958.

Obviously we need to investigate this insurgency movement before any more dominoes fall!

9. They only chose that name because

Troglodytes for America and the Ku Klux Klan were already taken.

Cheers!

21. In all seriousness

do NOT
repeat
DO NOT

let them wash off the stink with their name. This is just an attempt to run away from the embarrassment they earned, and the fact they helped the GOP lose two elections! They know the GOp wants to either drop them or hide them, and they should not be allowed to do either...Even if you have to say "the group once known as the tea Party", keep the shame alive, frame the shame!
