You dumb fucking ignorant ass rednecks
Do you not realize how moronic you look in your wife-beater T-shirts and beer bellies gathered around some ignorant ass fuck who knows as much about politics and history as rush limbaugh waving your flags and acting all patriotic now?
Where were you when your drunken coke-addled preznit was spending our blood and treasure on his drunken follies intended only to fatten the wallets of the same men who bought the election for him in the first place? Where were you when the same idiot fucktard was deregulating everything he could get his greedy hands on to again enrich the bank accounts of the men who purchased the election for him?
Now you are sitting here amidst the ashes of "The House that Bush Built" wondering how the fuck you can blame this monumental failure on someone else.
Let me give you a word of advice. Shove that fucking teabag up your ass. You aren't seeking redemption of this country...you are merely trying to assuage the guilt because THIS FUCKING CRISIS WAS ENABLED BY YOU!

I am sorry. I passed one of these teabagging parties this am and was thoroughly and utterly disgusted at these poseurs trying to act like "Good Americans" all of the sudden. I hope they all fucking choke on the bile that their ilk spills. :mad:

9. Those were precisely my thoughts too
at least those that were in attendance this am.
I was doubly pissed because the Texas National Guard was "coincidentally" parked in the same lot as they were--of course, there was a 4th of July parade getting ready to be underway...and they had to park "somewhere" dontcha know?

after all, your average freeper is full of crap, so they need extra crappers to handle the overflow.

and I agree with you. I have friends who are some of the ones who were in support of the bush/cheney cabal and I will never let them live down their complicity in all this. They'll either change their ways or they will quit calling me friend. I'd rather they see the light but I can live with the alternative if I must.

14. Wouldn't you like to go up to them and ask "How long have you been really paying close attention to
what is actually happening in this country?"

If they'd answer honestly, I'd bet you'd find out it's an average of something less than 2 years.

Simple-minded folk with little or no in-depth knowledge of what they're talking about. Just noise-machine talking points.

67. Trouble is though ...



... all you'd get would be a string of TP's from OxyRush or Hannity. I remember when Sam Seder interviewed some of the freeper types that were protesting Letterman in front of the Ed Sullivan Theatre. He would ask a relevant question and their answer would be completely illogical and from way out in right field. I still get a laugh out of it when I think about their 'protest'. Over two thousand promised to be there and maybe a dozen showed up. There were more media types than there were protestors. Typical. They talk a good game but when it's time for results it's a completely different story. They are just so full of shit that it is hilarious.

20. Lalalalalalaa, I can't hear you!!!
I called my aunt this week. She's worried that Obama is going to "ruin America".

It's hopeless. All we can hope for is that they don't vote. I hate to sound so powerless, but when the number of idiots increases, we become an idiotic country. And it didn't happen yesterday. These people are being fed by their churches, I believe, among other ways. These preachers are setting a context for conservative politics. That's part of it. The media is probably more responsible than anything. They gave the assholes a pass, as they ran around exposing a CIA agent, lying to the UN, killing a million people in Iraq...

Your post really sums up the sentiment over the last ten years, as we watched powerless. I still remember the first day I found this forum. And I'm grateful.

We may never heal in our lifetimes. Too many idiots.

46. There is a theory
That a civilization will start to fail when the top 1% of thinkers decide to leave.

These are not necessarily the top earners or the most popular and most people wont even notice that they are gone, but once they leave the level of innovation in a civilization goes down drastically. They are the 1% of people who truly can think.

And they have been leaving the US for decades since Reagan took the white house and drove the country into a ditch.

America is over, but like a chicken with it's head cut off, it just doesn't know it yet.

91. It is/was a very big chicken, but I think it is already dead. We killed it in
the 80s and have been living off the carcass ever since.

And like that Thanksgiving turkey after a week, there's nothing really left and it's really starting to stink.

38. I don't think the OP was saying ANYTHING about their right to assemble/protest
He/she was merely pointing out the monumental stupidity of the people at the one witnessed. In fact, it's the Republican Party that traditionally is more prone to attack that right.

Remember how we were "unpatriotic" for not supporting Bush's policies? (Gee, whatever happened to "it's your duty to support your President in time of war?" Funny how fast THAT principle disappeared on January 20th.)

Remember his "free speech zones?" And his "loyalty pledges?"

Yes, even the morons have a right to free speech. One of the many, many reasons I love this country.

They are protesting the uppity negro in THEIR White House.

That kind of protest I have a *little* problem with.

Sure, they are saying it's about taxes or bailouts or etc. etc., but the real reason is racist.

44. The 1st Amendment doesn't give one the right to incite violence
and call for the assassination of public officials. That is not protected speech. Read the signs at your tea party today.

Oh, and as long as you're preaching 1st Amendment: flag burning is protected. Doesn't that just totally piss you off? Oh, and those protesting the policies of your dear leader, the drunkard GW Bush, were also entitled to protest without fear of being detained or arrested -- even though homeland security didn't see it that way under Bush. Oh yeah, they called us unAmerican.

Go back to FR where you can be among your own kind.

Oh, and, thick or thin crust?

55. Read his post again.
Where did he say that they don't have a right to protest? He's disagreeing with their politics and criticizing them for what he sees as ignorance. He did not say that they don't have a right to protest. He didn't mean that they are idiots simply for protesting. He meant that they were idiots because of what they were protesting.

What you're doing is a common right wing rhetorical tactic (I don't know if you're doing it on purpose or not). When someone disagrees with you, instead of actually arguing the issues you start acting as if your rights are being suppressed when nothing of the sort is happening.

42. Who the shit has an "I hate Obama" rally on the 4th of July?
I'd like to ask one of them "Er. What's a Socialist? I know what one is, I want to see if you do". I'm not holding my breath for a correct answer.

50. They can memorize talking point but can't think.
They're the ones who fight like hell about paying taxes -- and now, on the 4th of July, are the ones bitching about fireworks displays being cancelled due to lack of revenue. They don't see the cause and effect relationship. Bbbbut it's patriotic! It's the 4th of July! Yeah, and you want your trash picked up and the police department on call, too. Make a choice, dumbass.

The rant and good cup 'o coffee and my morning is now complete :)

Have you seen a chicken with it's head recently cut off? That ProPalin group seems to have had it's head cut off, and they are now without brains and running in circles. BUT, me thinks it's a game. Palin wants to freak them out. A well established and basic psychological manipulation of group think. So that when she makes her comeback, they are grateful, emotionally relieved, and vindicated in their faith in Palin. They will support without question. It'll be a revival!!

I'll laugh my ass off if she gets the Rep nomination. Come to think of it, I'll laugh my ass off if she doesn't. A win-win for me :)

including people on our side two.

If the OP wants to rail against teabaggers, bush supporters, etc, that's fine, because that's their behavior. Using redneck as a slur, is pure bigotry especially when so many voted for Obama. The OP embarasses me. I want left leaning people who consider themselves rednecks to feel welcome here.

just my opinion. Rednecks, as a whole, are a group too many DUers kick around to make themselves look like good liberals or Democrats. I guess everyone needs a whipping boy for their anger.

73. Wow.
Way to spew.

What, exactly, was it about the "tea party" that bothered you?

I'm sure it wasn't people exercising their right to assemble; I fully support that right.

I assume you disagreed with the message, although you didn't actually share the message or your disagreement. If you had, I'd probably join you in disagreeing with that message.

Or were you just imitating the bigotry rampant in the U.S. with your assumptions and descriptions?

I'm not patriotic; I never have been. I'm doing my best to wriggle out of the family festivities, because I really don't give a shit one way or another.

If I WERE to celebrate something about my country, it would probably be the Constitution and the Bill of Rights; I think peaceful demonstrations are a perfect way to celebrate Independence.

But that's just me.

92. Their idiocy has cost all of us a great deal, and they're flaunting it.
I'm with you, HWNN. I'm outraged that they don't even have the decency to be sorry for what they've done. On the contrary. And regardless of all that's said about brainwashing, they know better. Their fervor for the destruction of the last 30 years comes from a basic hatred for the opportunity for all that this country was meant to be, and was in fact in other times, which I won't tolerate - from anybody.

This is a war against society that they're supporting. And it's global. I have no tolerance for them what.so.ever. They are in fact a blight on humanity in my book.

There is plenty of track record to know this RW by. They have no excuse for still siding with it. (And I include in that the "Blue Dog" creeps too - they're the same thing in disguise.)

104. The Tax issue has been hijacked by the freeptards, because it's the only thing that we have left.
While the whole teabagger thing is ridiculous, the concept is valid.

The same idiots that enabled the Military Industrial complex, Big Ag, and Big Oil to reap enormous profits, enabled dubya to grant them near immunity without cost.


The only way this transfer of wealth is going to continue is if we continue handing over our tax dollars willingly and without demanding a detailed account of how the tax money is being spent.

There have been many people, long before BushCo that have questioned the overall legality of the Tax system in America. I for one have actually started reading Title 26, and it reads like something that Bernie Maddof would create. There is absolutely no way that they want you to compremhend this system, because they obfuscate the intent at every step.

The most effective way to maintain a fraud is to keep it shrouded in secrecy, and play on peoples fears of losing out, being unpatriotic, or by using threat of punishment. The tax system does this, and there is a whole mythology developed around the brutality of the IRS.

Refusing to be a cooperative, complacent part of the fraud is key, and I feel that the Republicans, who are part of the fraud are now busy at work shaping public opinion by releasing the craziest rabid dog idiots strategically to blacken the eye of the Truth in Taxes movement.

For me, it is simpler to distill it into something that everyone can understand. I for one, am ex-military. I watched huge sums of money pour into the Military during the Reagan years, and have seen absolutely no gain from it. I see the Military abandon bases, leaving the public to clean up the toxic mess left behind. I see new weaponry developed for no real threat, yet Military remains a sacred cow, unable to take the slightest budget cuts, while our Veterans are stonewalled after serving years in the service.

I see the military machine used as a political weapon of Empire building, without a clear threat.

For me, it is very simple. I will not participate in this fraud. If that means living within my means, and absolutely shunning working within the Rat Race, then so be it. This is the difference. While the teabaggers refuse to pay taxes out of spite, I do not pay taxes because I do not earn money within their framework. The framework they have created maintains a system of control via automatic witholding and forced compliance with a tax law that is voluntary. Most people voluntarily fill out a 1040 because a large amount of their wages has been witheld from them by their employer, and they want it back. If you don't file, you'll never see it, so in that case, did you ever earn it?

We all know that the Freeptards are idiots, but the only way of actually exerting any control on the Government is by witholding the purse strings and demanding accountability.

NO Indirect taxes that go into a black hole.

114. I'm a "Redneck" and I suggest you check your fucking fire!
I never voted for the Dip Shit, nor have I ever supported ANYTHING he has ever done. Nor have I ever voted for or supported any asswipe Republican.

However, I do see a lot of 'ignorant ass fucks,' who are supposed to be educated and more intelligent, constantly ridiculing all Rednecks and people who live in Red States. Here's a clue for you... There are MORE Republicans in your Blue States than Republicans in Red States, and typically 40% Democratic voters in Red States. Wrap your allegedly more 'intelligent' minds around that and think about it for awhile before you open your fucking trap.

Oh, and it's kind of hard to say that Democratic Government is much better, when Corporate America and the Wealthy Elite still get the big cash giveaways, while average people in this country still get the same chump change token efforts that cost them more in the long run. It makes it very difficult to keep saying on the job site that the Democrats will represent average peoples' best interests, when they only look out for THEIR best interests.

117. Ausage their guilt? No, more like complain their taxes are too high.

They want a politician to bribe them into voting again with more tax cuts. They think it's somehow similar to this country's founding principles. How dare the government actually tax us.

A morally depraved bunch.

119. Meh... the ones that I saw at the last tea-bagging party did not look like "rednecks".
I didn't venture out today, but I would guess that they were of the same socioeconomic status.

This kind of idiocy transcends class. As several have said, deeming someone a "redneck" is not a fair assessment as to how they approach politics.

Other than that, I agree with your assessment. They are a bunch of self-absorbed assholes that only care about themselves. They take absolutely no credit for our current situation. Unless, of course, they can pawn it off on democrats.

125. they don't care what you think of them anymore than we care what they think of us
we're irrelevant to each other, and that's part of the problem. Off my soapbox now.

132. Here's the thing, they are protesting while their taxes were lowered
Talk about your group of uninformed, unwashed, under-educated, first-cousin-marryin', ER-as-their-primary-carin', Americans. Yes, that's right Americans and they vote however they are told to vote, they protest what they are told to protest and they are blind to how it keeps them poor and disadvantaged. I used to live in Spartanburg, SC. This was the home of a non-union BMW automotive manufacturing plant. So, you had international business types, people moving from Chicago, New York, and even Detroit to this little back-water state.

A friend of mine told me about a guided bus tour they took in town before they moved there. The highlight of the tour was going past the Chamber of Commerce building, why you ask? Well, on the sidewalk in front of the building was a group of rednecks waving confederate flags and even one little old lady in a hickory rocker. What were they protesting? Glad you asked.

The chamber of commerce erected a circle of flag poles with various state and international flags representing the origins of businesses operating in their fair county. I think you may already be ahead of me here... These rednecks were protesting for the confederate flag to be included in the circle of flags.

My friend said the busload of soon-to-be residents waved and cheered. The rednecks, thinking they had supporters waved and cheered back. What those backwards-thinking rednecks had no clue of was they were a laughing stock. This was what most outsiders think of a hayseed-filled, backwater state like South Carolina is really like. It is hard for outsiders to think otherwise when presented with examples like that.

So, when CNN broadcasts the images of these tea-baggin', hate-filled, under-educated, goofy-dressin', racist, unpatriotic, rednecks I cringe. I cringe because when those images show up on the TV screens in other countries, I can hear them silently nodding their heads saying to themselves, "see, those stupid Americans, that is what America is really like..."

134. Alcohol, cigarettes, unhealthy poison food, and meth
will take it's toll.

Along with non-survivable stupidity.

Put your money where your big mouths are you ignorant rednecks and stop relying on government handouts for your survival.

153. No, the ignorant teabaggers make a big deal of small government
and no reliance on big government programs. That's what they call "socialism." It is the height of hypocrisy to rail against government programs, all the while being the beneficiaries of them. Let the "bootstrappers" bootstrap their own asses without relying on government "handouts." They should start getting rid of "socialism" by not accepting any.

137. You dumb fucking ignorant ass rednecks
The classic definition of a Red Neck is poor white working class people. The type of people that Democrats, Socialists and Communists is supposed to champion. I come from a poor working class family of southern descent. We have always been fucked over by the elitist in both parties. Only an elitist would start a thread with "You dumb fucking ignorant ass rednecks"

141. Redneck? What, do you mean an Asian woman? What, do you..
...mean a Black man? What, do you mean someone of Albanian descent? What is this racist stereotype of which you speak? "Redneck"... What a Hispanic?

Of course not. You wouldn't say Nigger, Chink, Spic or Greaser, but you trot that shit out, with the whole 'wife-beating T shirt' crap. Gee where do you get one of those? What does it say? "I'm a Redneck and I beat my wife?" You folks who insist on using the word Redneck to describe a particular group of people make me sick because if it was any other demographic being called some insulting name, you'd be up in arms. Why can't people post without breaking it down into that?

150. They're probably wishing they DIDN'T get media coverage now!
The big Dallas-area tea bagging convention was at Southfork Ranch yesterday. I'd heard it being built up last week with a radio news report saying they expected 50k. Video from the event was pathetic. In one shot, with musicians onstage, there looked to be 50 people in the chairs down front. They did manage to include a shot of someone's homemade "Run, Sarah, Run" sign.

I'm all for like-minded people gathering to tell each other what they want to hear (Obama, Reid, Pelosi=bad), but they really need to call these gatherings what they are...Republican Pity Parties.

152. These fuckers just permeate
They are such idiots and cowards that they skulk around trying to permeate everything. I went to the local college part of the Rivals.com site last night see if any interesting football or basketball recruits were being talked about and some jerk, probably fitting the description in the OP, had posted a thread with a screed about being ware of "socialism". Damn fool, I posted in his thread "God Bless America and President Barack Obama". I haven't returned yet to see how patriotic he really is when faced with someone supporting the President. These turds try to permeate everything to sneak their slime in. It's time to just start shouting them down.
