Great pic from Iowa T-Bagger protest-- "All of these people are idiots"
Edited on Fri Mar-26-10 10:41 AM by Earth Bound Misfit

Obama supporters, including Brendan Shelely, 19 and John Magana, 24, mix in with tea party members.

Wa Po's full story & more pics:
A tea party protester in Iowa wants to be heard
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/gallery/20...

ETA: One very telling quote in particular from the bull-horn carrying IDJIT speaks volumes:

"And now the most pro-choice president this nation has ever elected is forcing us to have health care"

Does that mean he'd be okay with it if the same bill were presented by a Pro-life Repuli(HELL NO YOU)CANT? The fucking stupid is going to make my head explode.

Edit to add photo caption.

2. But he's standing next to a guy with an Obama sign.
This photo makes it look like he's calling Obama supporters idiots.

6. If you read the caption at the link
It says the two are together and infiltrated into the rally. The kid holding the sign is 19-years old. Yay, kid!

32. Hello
It's amazing seeing the response this little poster is receiving. Yes that is me in the picture (the woman from the post added a "l" to my last name, but I'll forgive her). Just to clarify for everyone, no one around m other than the guy with the "Thank You" sign was an Obama supporter. They were nothing but a big old group of hate filled conservatives and boy did I get hassled.

47. It's funny if you look at it this way...
You know when your debating someone on an issue and the other person finally agrees with you? You sigh say 'thank you'. The photo looks like that "These people are idiots" "Thank you".

And thanks for the picture. I think I'll use it as a computer wall paper.

7. The guy with the sign has a positive Obama T-shirt on so....
I think the guy next to him is his friend.

I thank both of them for showing and standing up to fascism.

15. yup, the guy with the Obama shirt and the one with the "thank you"
are the "infiltrators"- Brenden Sheley (19) and John Magana (24) mixed in with the Tea party crowd.

Pretty cool.

9. This is great!
He is obviously standing with supporters of HIS "kind" - in a counter demonstration. But it is still great.
My recommendation was immediately offset by a minus.
The freepers don't like this very much.

BWaaaa!

20. I remember during the campaign,,
as it was nearing the end of it.

Palin made a stop and all of her supporters were mugging for the camera and there was this one boy a teenager he was standing in different spots under their signs mouthing OBAMA,OBAMA,OBAMA.


I cracked up as I watch the reporter on CNN kept talking and giving updates as boy jumped from place to place...

25. Reminds me of the "original"...


This one CRACKS ME UP, because of the smug look
on the sign holder and the dawning awareness on the face of
the BushBaby.

42. I laughed my ass off
for a good few minutes after seeing this picture.

So understated and factual. "These people are idiots."

It's like a Ron Swanson recitation of facts speech.

46. Classic, and here's an example of their stupidity...
A quote from the linked article below: "We're Republican by registration, but I'd even vote for a communist right now if they would start to change the way we're running the country. We need to get our Constitution back."

50. Brendan Shelely gets how to defuse Tea Bag style energy
Brendan Shelely stepped into the Tea Bag picture and used their energy to invalidate their message. I think this is the way to neutralize this energy regardless if it is tea partiers, or some other fear/hate group
