urban dictionary definition of firebagger is fucking greatness
Edited on Fri Aug-19-11 11:17 AM by snooper2
:rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

1. Firebagger 72 up, 37 down
A person nominally of the political left viewed as excessively critical of President Barack Obama, especially if the tendency is to reflexively or obsessively criticize him and seemingly not other political figures. Etymology: Jane Hamsher's popular, left-leaning FireDogLake blog was regarded by Democratic moderates as having gone around the bend in being hypercritical, such as when Hamsher appeared on Fox News to denounce Obama's Health Care Bill, got involved with Neocon zealot Grover Norquist and even reportedly Tea Party activists. Thus, <b>FireDogLake + Teabagger. </b>

"Firebaggers are just pissed because Obama hasnt invited them into the Whitehouse and/or isnt the Great Liberal Savior they thought he was going to be (depending on the firebagger doing the bitching)."

On edit I found a picture to go with this :P

9. What's so insulting?
Can't you just be called a bunch of pony-loving, fire-bagging, starry-eyed, naive, idealistic, don't-understand-how-the-world-works, you'd rather have President McCain, dirty fucking hippies without taking it personally?

Jeez, you're so touchy.

11. Right, nothing personal in that.
I don't know how this term is allowed to stand on DU as it insults a huge portion of the Progressives that are not happy with Obama's policies and lack of leadership.

7. I will admit that I did not criticize congressional dems for offering to cut Social Security during
the debt ceiling negations.

8. You didn't use the second definition...
Firebagger

A term of derision used (usually on blogs) by supporters of U.S. President Barack Obama in arguments with people who criticize Obama and other Democrats from the political left. The term is a conflation of "Teabagger" the term of derision used to describe right wing Tea Party activists and Firedoglake, a left-leaning political blogging community founded by Jane Hamsher.

10. Do you suppose this sort of thing would be tolerated if the word were "Obamabot"?
Edited on Fri Aug-19-11 11:28 AM by Marr

28. It was more of a rhetorical question, since we all know the answer.
But if you'd care to address it, that would be fine.

27. What difference does that make?
Posts are, I'm told, deleted here for being intentionally divisive, accusatory, insulting, etc.

23. Which, for the record, urban dictionary also define....
"If an Obamabot is pursued or confronted about his or her seeming blind loyalty and lack of knowledge, he or she will typically launch a 'counter attack' (to a perceived attack) and accuse those who differ as racist, ignorant, hateful, etc. and/or will become resentful, indignant,
insulting, and even threatening (in cases which are most extreme)."

25. As opposed to Sandbaggers
"The president is great, he can do no wrong! He's a brilliant strategist! Three dimensional chess! A vote against Obama is a vote for the Republicans!" etc.

Here's my picture :)



What other Democratic subgroups can we demean here?

26. Liberal Christians are always an easy mark.
So are Democrats who subscribes to any foreign policy philosophy that rejects pacifism as ineffective.
So are Trade Unionists.
So are Fair-Traders and anybody else who opposes free-trade or outsourcing or supports a hearty tariff policy.
