A Tea Partier Just Called Me "Communist." Watch My SLAM DUNK Response

A Tea Partier Just Called Me "Communist." Watch My SLAM DUNK Response
by Conceptual Guerilla

So I'm working this morning, like I do everyday, trying to come up with ways to promote my film, when I get this email from a guy who used to call my radio show over in Jackonville.

His name is Rod, and here's what he sent.

Rep. Allen West states that 81 Democratic House members are communists.

A CPUSA official is outraged & I agree. Isn't every Democrat a communist?


I wasn't getting a whole lot done, so I figured "what the hell." I wrote him a response.

First of all, do I really want to empower him by getting all indignant and angry . . . validating how smart he thinks he is?

I'd much rather counter-attack, and put this joker on the defensive . . .

. . Like this.

That's right, Rod. Every Democrat is a communist . . . going all the way back to 1933 when FDR set up New Deal Communism. That would be the same New Deal communism you grew up under. The New Deal Communism that made us the richest, most powerful nation in history. The New Deal Communism that took us to the moon just 36 years after FDR was sworn in.

Let me show you the track record of those New Deal Communist Democrats.

Communist Truman left 2.5 percent unemployment to Eisenhower.

Republican Patriot Eisenhower left recession and 6.5 percent unemployment to Kennedy.

Communist Johnson left 3.5 percent unemployment to Nixon.

Republican Patriot Ford left recession and 7.5 unemployment to Jimmy Carter.

Communist Carter wasn't able to improve much on the recession he inherited . . .

. . . and neither were Republican Patriots Reagan and Bush, who left recession and 7.2 unemployment to Bill Clinton.

Communist Bill Clinton left 4.2 percent unemployment to Dubya . . .

Republican Patriot Dubya left recession and 7.6 percent unemployment to Communist Barack Obama.


No Republican Patriot ever left office with unemployment under 5 % . . . including Reagan. No New Deal Communist ever left office with higher unemployment than they inherited . . . including Jimmy Carter who left the same unemployment he inherited from Ford.

3 out of 4 New Deal Communists left office with unemployment well under five percent.

But wait . . . there's more...

24. The reason teabaggers are told that Hitler was a communist

is that the official name of the Nazi party was the National Socialists.

So they called themselves "Socialists," which meant that they were a left-wing party, not a right-wing party. At least according to AM radio logic.

By that line of reasoning, Cream of Wheat is a dairy product and cottage cheese should have wood splinters in it.

27. Oh, I'm quite aware of where this belief comes from

You're right- some right wingers somewhere observed that the Nazis were National SOCIALISTS...

I guess my pint is that even after all this time I'm still amazed at the teabaggers' ability to completely dismiss facts that conflict with their world view.

38. They get off on that "National SOCIALIST" business

and, as always, have zero comprehension of the topic they're ranting about.

You can always bring up inconvenient questions like, "So how come Hitler invaded the Soviet Union? Why was he allied with Imperial Japan and Fascist Italy instead of with Russia?"

he would have won. Cause Russia was Communist/Socialist and they woulda had a party. alas. Hitler was on the extreme right and Stalin was on the extreme left. so they fought it out. and if it takes a really laughable sex scene to sell that, so be it. (Enemy at the Gates)

45. I think Carter was to last POTUS who had 100% integrity.

He was a good and decent man both in word and in deed. Unfortunately, high interest rates and the Iran hostage situation did him in.

He never, ever lied. Tragically, lying is a prerequisite for public office.

28. Excellent montage, but I winced the most at limbaugh's voice. The other thing that got me

...was how passionate those rubes were about a subject they were admittedly clueless on. A few of the others seen in the first few minutes came across as more articulate ( but only by comparison ) simply because they were sticking to talking points scripts.

I do have to say that what was really unnerving to me was how young so many of the dolts in that video were: I was kind of figuring that demographic were comprised mostly of people in their sunset years.

You all wanna know what motivates these people to buy this shit... well, I'll tell ya. They hate the caricature of what a liberal or democrat is, so they grasp ANYTHING that is its antithesis. They are nothing but cultural bigots, a cult who swarms to something that is against their weird illusion of us. And what's even worse... it's so a tiny elite can run everything, rendering our democracy moot. Stupid fools are giving our country to the 1% while fighting against the very people that would give the shirt off their backs for them. Fuckers!!!
