    Yes these mobs of idiots are quite sad. They show up in DC with a few thousand "protesters" and they think the numbers were in the millions.

    One thing is for sure, these people are not pleased to see a person of color in the white house. The message coming from these people over and over again is Obama is a Muslim from Kenya who is a socialist/fascist/communist. These people dont like black people, at least not black people in decision-making positions of power.

    But i do think its good that these narrow minded freaks come together, even if they dont know why their gathering, at least it makes them easier to track.

    And to why they say they protest, Obama's "Big Government" economic policy, Matt Taibbi put it this way,

    "It's amazing, literally amazing to me, that it wasn't until Obama pushed through a package containing a massive public works package and significant homeowner aid that conservatives took to the streets. In other words, it wasn't until taxes turned into construction jobs and mortgage relief that working and middle-class Americans decided to protest. I didn't see anyone on the street when we forked over billions of dollars to help JP Morgan Chase buy Bear Stearns. And I didn't see anyone on the street when Hank Paulson forked over $45 more billion to help Bank of America buy Merrill Lynch, a company run at the time by one of the world's biggest assholes, John Thain. Moreover I didn't see any street protests when the government agreed to soak up hundreds of billions in “troubled assets” from Citigroup, a company that just months later would lend out a jet furnished with pillows upholstered with Hermes scarves to former chief Sandy Weill so that he could vacation in Mexico over Christmas."

    Teabagging Michelle Malkin

    These people care nothing about the government waste, the American jobs shipped overseas, the outrageous spending and outright mistake of goin into Iraq, the needless loss of life, the no-bid Halliburton contracts, the Blackwater murderers who rape and pillage on their tax dollars. Billions of Teabagger tax dollars are missing from The Bush Admin. deadly foreign policy experiments in the Mideast and these racist idiots couldnt care less.

    Teabaggers are as stupid as their name.
     
  3. I'm sure that some of the people at this rally are aware of reality but these people just seem fucking out of touch.... Goddamn... Is this 50% of our country?
     
  4. Well, ain't much of a surprise that it was pretty much a flop. I bet there are indeed millions of Americans who disagree with Obama's policies, but most of us are educated enough to know that Glen Beck is just another media puppet who is misrepresenting our views and only serving to make us look bad... as in white, racist, right wing nutcase goons, etc.

    Glen Beck is a neocon who pretends to be a classic conservative, libertarian because:

    1) the TV watching population is dumb enough to actually reward his ridiculousness with more views

    2) and it serves to invalidate the solid arguments against the Obama administration because, hey, who would even listen to a racist zealot who can't seem to say anything about Obama without comparing him to Hitler?

    Also, most of us are smart enough to know that marching on DC doesn't accomplish anything. Nonviolent protest is not taken seriously and therefore doesn't accomplish anything. People who still think we can work to change things nonviolently and from within the system are basically delusional since on one hand they recognize the monster our government has become, and on the other, they fail to recognize that you can't compromise or reason with a monster.
     
  5. Yes, a large majority of Americans are pretty damn Ignorant. Thats why I felt so great to leave this country for the time that I did, get aay from this ignornance.

    I think the peoples hearts are in the right place, they do wanna try and change the country for the better... but some of them just watch to damn much TV; they're being brainwashed by whatever Glen Beck or someone says.
     
  6. lol uhhh
     
  7. Are you colored, and if so, does that give you the right to accuse anyone of racism?

    Almost everyone in this country is racist, and so are our institutions for the most part. You're no exception, which you succeed in proving almost every time you post.
     
  8. It was the biggest Klan rally since the 20's.

    Racism is alive and well in America...

    oh and im caucasion.
     
  9. So we agree, racism isn't monopolized by a single group of people who just so happen to be in the media spot light at the moment?

    Does accusing people of racism somehow make you feel better about being a member of the 'oppressive' race? Does it make your homies think more of you? Do you know homies? Or just straight oreos? Be honest now.

    By the way, I don't think the black woman and Asian (in the little bit I bothered to watch) got the memo about it being a Klan rally. :laughing:

  11. Hold on, I'm missing something here.

    I don't approve of Obama's presidential policies. I don't approve of this Congress' policies.....that makes me racist?

    I want the federal government to follow the Constitution and not overstep it's boundries....that makes me racist?

    I want to end hurtful economic regulations and end the Federal Reserve, bringing our country to a true laissez-fair capitalistic state....that makes me racist?
     
  12. So this is a compilation of the retards at this Tea Party?

    How does this in any way represent the logical arguments put forth by the majority of attendees? I guess government apologists have to be biased if they want to trick anyone into thinking they have any points.

    "What exactly in the bills do you have a problem with?"
    "Errr... erm... uh"

    The proper answer to this entirely unreasonable question is that first you should tell our politicians to start reading the bills before quizzing me with complicated legal questions that you yourself cannot answer. It doesn't even take a glance at the bills to know that expansion of government has always been accompanied by a loss in rights.
     
  13. not this shit again...

    Im just calling it like it is. And because i see white people showing their racism in an obvoius, blatant way, what else do you do? Pretend its not there?

    And i dont know what "homies" has to do with anything.

    Sure, not every single person there was white or a racist, but id say a strong majority were white and were racist.

    And TLF1088, did you go to that rally? Im guessing not. Im not saying that if you believe in conservative things your a racist, but really, most there who showed they dont like Obama went their because they oppose healthcare?

    Look at what Mark Williams who is a big supporter/organizer of these tea party protest thingys said himself, its not about healthcare.

    From Anderson Cooper 360 last night-

    COOPER: But I mean, Mark, what you're saying makes sense to me here when I'm hearing what you're saying. But then I read on your blog, you say -- you call the president an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug and a racist in chief.
    WILLIAMS: Yes.
    COOPER: Is that the kind of...
    WILLIAMS: That's the way he's behaving.
    COOPER: But I mean...
    WILLIAMS: I mean, if he cares to be...
    (CROSSTALK)
    COOPER: Do you believe he's Indonesian? Do you believe he's a Muslim? Do you really believe he's a welfare thug?
    WILLIAMS: He's certainly acting like it.
    GERGEN: You think he's a racist in chief? Racist in chief? Is that what you called him? That's unbelievable. It's unbelievable,
    WILLIAMS: Until he embraces the whole country -- what else can I conclude? He and guys like James are totally, totally isolating the rest of this country; if you're a working-class American, then you know, that's it.
    CARVILLE: I tell you, if you're an American, and you like what you're hearing from this guy, if you like celebrating a man's death, go over there with these people.

    That's the profile of dissent peddled by the media and various other sources who are intent on apologizing for all of the government's intrusive actions. It is meant to discredit dissent by portraying it as being exactly as you say. How sad that you fell for it. There's a reason MSM only shows white people at tea parties even though they have people of all races there...

    Notice how the vast majority of discontents on this forum never mention any of that stupid personal shit about Obama, yet still have legitimate points about why the government isn't doing a good job? Well you don't, because you're stupid, but that's not the point.
     
  16. Yeah o fucking k. Are you kidding me?

    You think these people with these signs at these protest that say things about him being a muslim, racist pictures of him, pictures of him with terrorist, communism, hitler on and on and on and on...

    You think the media made all that up? Sure i wont disagree that the mainstream media has been pushing it a lot and that in return, it has ended up giving these paranoid, misinformed wingnuts mainstream coverage when the media should be worried about more important things.

    "Homies" has everything to do with it because I'm exhibiting how everyone, including you and me, are a product of a racist society. You don't know homies because you live in a country that segregates people through policies that pretend to do the opposite. You can pretend to not be racist all you want, I'm not in denial. I've been working my whole life to undo the racism that I've been raised into, and I'm still afflicted to a certain extent. Racism, on a personal or institutional level, isn't over, and won't be overcome till our government, media, corporate sector, and educational institutes stop pretending that they make policies in order to overcome it, when the reality has proven that said policies only serve to reinforce and perpetuate racism.
     
  18. "we shouldnt cover these people because theres not enough doctors."

    Are these people nuts. Exactly why i hope theres never a republican in the whitehouse ever again (unless it was a true ron paul type)
     
  19. "and you know this how??" LMFAO
     
  20. Of course, this is like the 20 or 15 dumbest, crazyest people they could find at a rally of thousands of people. You could get the same results at any political rally.

    I just wish they would have included some people who knew what they were talking about, but that clearly does not match the intentions of those who produced this clip.
    If there was juts one person who said "Oh, well, see, my objection with Mr. Obama's health care plan comes from this passage on page 143 of the bill A9387 which is currently being debated in front of the house committee on blahblahblah, wherein it reads...."
