As I was scanning Pravda on the Potomac, I came across an article about the Teabaggers and the overt racism and proto-fascist behavior they exhibited over the weekend (behavior that has been a consistent Teabagger trait ever since the astro-turf group was first unleashed if you were paying attention). Of note was a quote from a spokesman for Teabagger patron and self-appointed leader, Dick Armey. This made me laugh (emphasis added):
Regardless of who yelled what, the reports themselves could be problematic for the tea party movement, said Adam Brandon, a spokesman for FreedomWorks, the small government group that helped organize tea partiers congressional office visits last week.
“Tattoos last forever,” said Brandon, quoting his boss, FreedomWorks chairman and former House Republican Leader Dick Armey. “If the movement gets tattooed as at all sympathetic to those (racist and homophobic) views, I won’t want to be involved in it anymore. It’s very distracting not only to our side but also to the debate and the country.”
Like Dr. Frankenstein, little Dick Armey is beginning to fear his monster. It is time to make the TeaBagger Tattoo permanent and call out this racist movement for what it is. A Congressional Resolution to condemn the actions of these Teabaggers would be a fun way to drive the point home and a great recorded vote for the GOP.
OTHO, I’m sure this is all good news for John McCain and the Conservative movement. Just as I’m sure that the coming discussion on real Immigration reform will bring out the best of GOP’s astro-turf monster.
