Teabaggers are TRAITORS, not patriots
Edited on Tue Jan-11-11 01:37 PM by raging_moderate
I swear if I hear one more Teabagging "moran" crow about how patriotic they are by wishing harm to their fellow law abiding citizens and wanting to take down our government I think I might go postal myself. Those are the statements and desires of TREASON. Then, on top of it, they start throwing around Thomas Jefferson (and other founders) quotes to make themselves sound credible. Jefferson was fomenting treason against King George you asswipes! Not against the newly created USA. If he was caught doing so by the Redcoats, he would have been either hung or shot by firing squad. That is what happens to those guilty of treason.... they're shot or hung. If you feel strongly enough to take that risk, I guess I can't stop you myself, but I'm quite sure there are plenty of Marines and soldiers who would be glad to. True patriots work for and with their nation to improve it or change it as they wish and hope. They vote, they run for office, they read (that's R-E-A-D), they write, they contact their duly elected representatives, they dismiss lies and propaganda, they support the concept of open ideas and debate by all, they support the concept of free speech, but not lies, sedition, and vitriol. Our founders would be rolling in their graves if they heard you use them as examples of destroying what they built.

We have common enemies, and those are the corporate slime that have bought this country for their own use and disposal. We are not enemies of each other. That is what they want. We are made to go for each other's throats, not noticing that our treasury is being looted, our infrastructure decays, our education system destroyed, and about 1300 rich assholes with no allegiance to this country at all are making out like bandits.

3. and dupes -of their media
I call them traitors at times too, in reaction to their false accusations of our side. Their media is more scheming, however, and more responsible.

7. some are saboteurs...
the few running for office I agree, are saboteurs (similar to the thousands the GOP has managed to wedge into the govt for years). They are also traitors, as are all who support them

6. tea baggers are selective about recalling history
they only choose words and phrases to quote when it suits their agenda, and most of those phrases are taken out of context and don't apply AT ALL to today's United States of America.

and I agree. They are TRAITORS to this great nation by the very FACT that they want to bring down the government, which we are all a part of through our votes.

8. Exactly and I am absolutly certain that they would also.......
have been Tories of the most vicious kind during the revolution. How do I know this? It's simple. They are conservatives. They can't adapt to change, or new ideas, or anyone different, nor do they have the mental capacity to look at anything in any other light than they have imprinted in their closed minds. What they do have in abundance is fear.

9. I would agree, IF
Their main goal were a violent overthrow of the government.

If their plan is to "take over" through the ballot box, there's nothing traitorous about that.

How many of them have marched on Washington and tried to take over the Congress by force?

12. while Jefferson's quote is typically distorted, your characterization of it is inaccurate
I'm assuming that you are referring in the OP to the "tree of liberty" quote that the teabaggers are fond of tossing around (if you have a different Jefferson quote in mind, I apologize). That quote was not in relation to King George. Here is a link to the entire Letter to William Smith in which the quoted language appears.
