The Early Tea Bag Wearers – Updated

This is a re-posting of an earlier video produced by Keystone Progress.  The people in these videos will eventually staple tea bags to their hats and refer to themselves as “tea baggers”.  When they found out what the term “tea bagger” meant, they got their panties in a knot and now call themselves  “bigots”.

It’s a reminder of how all this hatred and racism towards Obama began.

And remember “monkey man”?  Thanks again to Keystone Progress for being there and capturing the truth.

Things have not gotten better.  The hatred, racism and violence has only gotten worse.

UPDATE:  The people in the above videos are the ones that cling to their guns and Jesus while living in the parts of Pennsylvania that either will be or are already open to gas drilling (fracking).  Soon, these people will be seeing this when they turn on their faucets…

I Want My Country Back

Yes, you heard me.  I want my country back… back from the Tea Party and the big corporations that financially support them.  I do NOT want my country to return to the Tea Party and Republican principles of:

  • Repealing the Civil Rights Act because the central Government should not tell States how to treat American citizens.
  • Eliminating the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.  Women should not be voting.  They don’t have time for politics because they need to be in the kitchen cooking and they should be waiting on their husbands.  The bible tells us that women are subservient to men.
  • Returning to slave labor and sweat shop labor practices because businesses should be free to abuse their employees without Government interference.
  • Dismantling Social Security because seniors should have planned better for their retirement.  Too bad and too sad if Wall Street bankers stole most of their IRA money.  Tough luck if the seniors worked at jobs that didn’t have a pension program or 401K program.  If these seniors worked for minimum wage, they still should have thought ahead even if it required providing less food and clothing for their children so that they would have that extra money to save for their retirement.  Some Republican candidates are claiming that Social Security is unconstitutional.
  • Dismantling Medicare because health care is not a right, it is a privilege and the Tea Party does not approve of privileges except when it comes to their idols and themselves.  Besides, only the privileged deserve health care.
  • Eliminating disability payments because people need to be more responsible and not get injured on the job.  This includes our military veterans.  They should stop whining because after all, they volunteered.
  • Forcing Catholics, Jews and Muslims to commit sins by having to read and study the protestant bible in public schools.
  • Allowing property owners to create toll roads.  People have a right to collect money from anyone that crosses their property line.  Good luck with getting to work on time and having any money left over from your paycheck after paying all the tolls.
  • Supporting “Second Amendment” solutions as a means of conflict resolution.  This might also work as a method of population control.
  • Returning to the glory days of lords and serfs.

I want my country back from hate mongers like Beck, Palin, Limbaugh, Malkin, Kristol, Bachmann, Rove, Cheney, and all the rest that appear on Fox News, the opinion network.  The goals for these people are to divide our country and to make piles of money while undereducated people do their dirty work for them.

I want my country back from racists such as Beck, Laura Schlesinger, the Tea Party and the Larouches.  These people are so upset because there is a black family living in, what they perceive as, the White(‘s only) House.

I want my country back from people that profit from the suffering of others (Beck, Palin and Limbaugh).

I want my country back from politicians that place Wall Street above and before Main Street, such as Pat Toomey, Tom Corbett, Jim Gerlach and all the other Republicans and Tea Party members.

Yes, I want my country back.  The one where everyone is treated with respect and  equality, the one where everyone receives good health care, the one where everyone receives a livable wage, and the one where everyone is free to practice their religious beliefs without interference from other religions.

I want back, the country that was progresing forward.  Not the one that is currently heading in Reverse.

The Three G’s

Glenn Beck claims it’s all about the three G’s… God, Gold and Guns.

Let’s take a good look at what is presented in the New Testament.

  • Jesus was a poor man so he would never have had access to gold.
  • Jesus was a peaceful man so he wouldn’t have been carrying weapons.

Using Beck’s logic,

If Jesus had access to gold, he could have bought off the money hungry Pharisees.

If Jesus had access to weapons, he would have been able to kill his opponents and therefore he would not have been crucified.

Without the crucifixion, Glenn Beck and the Fundamentalists wouldn’t have a religion.

So, is it God, Gold and Guns or is it poverty, peace, pacifist Jesus?

Quarantine Fox

Strange that the very people that promote terror and murder will never accept responsibility for their words.  Of course, these promoters of terror and murder would never commit a direct act themselves and are very aware that there are crazy people in the world that will do their dirty work.

Anyone Want A Cracker?

Just how would the media react if the head of the DNC defended a song titled “Bush the Idiot Cracker”?  Sounds like a racist title to me.  Yet, Tennessee Republican Chip Saltzman defends the RNC sending out a CD to its members that include a song titled “Barack the Magic Negro” among several other songs.  Saltzman seems to think that members will recognize this as satire.

From CNN:

“I think most people recognize political satire when they see it,” Tennessee Republican Chip Saltsman told CNN. “I think RNC members understand that.”

The song, set to the tune of “Puff the Magic Dragon,” was first played on conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh’s radio show in 2007.

Its title was drawn from a Los Angeles Times column that suggested President-elect Barack Obama appealed to those who feel guilty about the nation’s history of mistreatment of African-Americans. Saltsman said the song, penned by his longtime friend Paul Shanklin, should be easily recognized as satire directed at the Times.

The CD sent to RNC members, first reported by The Hill on Friday, is titled “We Hate the USA” and also includes songs referencing former presidential candidate John Edwards and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, among other targets.

According to The Hill, other song titles, some of which were in bold font, were: “John Edwards’ Poverty Tour,” “Wright place, wrong pastor,” “Love Client #9,” “Ivory and Ebony” and “The Star Spanglish Banner.”

Saltzman was once the national campaign manager for Mike Huckabee and he once held a position under the “cat killer”, former Senator Bill Frist.

This CD demonstrates the blatant racism and elitism of the Republican Party. It would be interesting to get a reaction from Colin Powell or Condolleza Rice on this. If the Repubicans want to keep marginalizing themselves, they should send this out to all the media. I mean, why hold back, if this is just ‘satire’?

More Hatred from McCain-Palin Supporters

This time the threats were made by the McCain-Palin supporters in Miami, FL.  Two men wearing Obama shirts and carrying Obama signs were surrounded by angry McCain-Palin supporters and one of the men had his life threatened.  Five thirty eight has the complete details.  This is “brown shirt” behavior.  Seems like the McCain-Palin supporters want to dismantle part of the Constitution by taking away Obama supporters freedom of speech.  This is how the Nazis started in Germany.  First, Germans lost their freedom of speech, then Hitler blamed the Jews, then the blacks, then the gays and then anyone that was not German for Germany’s economic problems.  The Nazis built internment camps and approved of torture and killed anyone that disagreed with them.  Now I’m not saying that McCain and Palin are promoting Fascism.  Their supporters certainly appear to be fans of Fascism.

This is a dark time in our nation.  We must come together or else our nation will perish.
