Racist Tea Baggers Going down, Down, DOWN!!!

Stolen from a post on Democratic Underground.  I think this demonstrates the true nature of the disease called the tea party.

Nothing works better to force a radical out of office than using their own words against them. The right wing is very organized in this area and it has shifted politics in America. I think the left finally has had some wins lately with using public opinion to sway politics. Quite a few Teabaggers have had to resign recently because the general population has demanded they step down. I offer these examples:

Rep. Martin Harty NH said the disabled should be sent to Siberia to freeze and die. RESIGNED after public outrage prompted massive calls, letters and emails.

Carlos Lam, a deputy prosecutor in Ind., sent email encouraging Gov. Scott Walker to fake an attack against himself. RESIGNED

State prosecutor, Jeffrey Cox, tweeted they should use live ammunition on Wisconsin protesters. RESIGNED

Joyce Kaufman, Allen West’s named Chief of Staff, RESIGNED after the backlash to her calls of violence.


I think we should make sure that letters, emails and phone calls continue to be sent to Tea Baggers when they go too far. If you have some suggestions of others who need to hear from us then add their contact info and we can drop them a message. How about this for a start: (google their names and their stories pop right up so you can fact check)

    Some of this is racism, and some of it’s just contempt for working people brought on by a bad case of right-wing ideological overreach.

    Maybe we needed more open expression of bigoted ideas. The super-rich and those who serve them usually say this stuff behind closed doors. They have an inverted sense of victimhood, and really seem to believe it’s the middle class who are overreaching. Now the Koch brothers are in the Weekly Standard whining about how this country is so unfair to billionaires.

    The delusion is complete. It is about time to come out of your caves and see what is really going on.

    Cliff the racist Jew, fixated on race and pointing to everyone but himself. It is sooo hilarious!!

    If all your letters mattered, would be on your way out?

    17% of people consider Obama to be a strong and decisive leader.

    17% sounds a lot like the Bush 20% . 20% er’s unite.

    Must read: Bob Herbert’s last column for The New York Times.

    The U.S. has not just misplaced its priorities. When the most powerful country ever to inhabit the earth finds it so easy to plunge into the horror of warfare but almost impossible to find adequate work for its people or to properly educate its young, it has lost its way entirely.

    Joe Bagent had died.

    Meanwhile, even as capitalism shows every sign of collapsing upon them under the weight of its sheer non-sustainability, Norteamericanos wait like patient, not-too-bright children for its “recovery.” Recovery, of course, is that time when they can once again run through the malls and outlet stores, the car lots and the fried chicken palaces eating, grabbing and consuming. No doubt, something resembling a recovery will be staged for their benefit, thereby goosing their pocketbooks at least one more time before the rest of the world forecloses on the country./june, 2010

    Shouldn’t you be worrying about more important things, like outsourcing jobs and poisoning children, and other things you are expert at?

    AP’s testing, conducted by ToyTestingLab of Rhode Island, found that the enamel used to color the Tin Man had the highest lead levels, at 1,006 times the federal limit for children’s products. Every Oz and superhero glass tested exceeded the government limit: The Lion by 827 times and Dorothy by 770 times; Wonder Woman by 533 times, Superman by 617 times, Batman by 750 times and the Green Lantern by 677 times.

    Federal regulators will decide whether the superhero and Oz glasses are “children’s products” and thus subject to strict lead limits; if U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission staffers conclude the glasses to fall outside that definition, the lead levels would be legal.

    Judging by the agency’s own analysis, obtained by the AP under the Freedom of Information Act, the Oz and superhero glasses appeal to kids.

    “Licensed characters based on action superhero themes or friendship themes are very popular” with children ages 6 to 8, CPSC staff wrote when explaining why the “Shrek” glasses, which featured the cartoon ogre and his friends, would end up in children’s hands.

    Warner Brothers said, “It is generally understood that the primary consumer for these products is an adult, usually a collector.”

    However, on Warner Brothers’ website, the superhero glasses are sold alongside kids’ T-shirts with similar images and a school lunch box. An online retailer, , describes the 10-ounce glasses as “a perfect way to serve cold drinks to your children or guests.” http://www.retroplanet.com

    The importer, Utah-based Vandor LLC, said it “markets its products to adult collectors.” The company said less than 10,000 of each set had been sold and that the products were made under contract in China.
    The company said that superhero and “Oz” glasses both passed testing done for Vandor by a CPSC-accredited lab, including the same lead content test that ToyTestingLab did for AP – a test only required of children’s products. Spokeswoman Meryl Rader did not answer when asked why a test specific to children’s products would be performed on glasses the company said were not intended for kids.

    Cliff, don’t you think you have more important things to do when you have your own immoral acts to atone for?

  9. #9 by Rico on March 27, 2011 - 10:06 pm

    Don’t look now brew, but your selective moral outrage is showing.

  10. #10 by brewski on March 28, 2011 - 8:58 am

    Please tell me how I am being selective.

  11. #11 by JWC on March 28, 2011 - 6:15 pm

    Rico is assuming that you are not outraged by the list of republican misdeeds and only outraged that Cliff is engaged in a capitalist enterprise that endagers children while using the big tobacco defense (that they only market to adults so if it hurts kids they are not liable).

    If so, then yes your moral outrage is selective.

    I do find it rather amusing that Rico had to look right past Cliff’s selective moral outrage to find yours though.

  12. #12 by james farmer on March 28, 2011 - 6:48 pm

    brew: Are you criticizing a company for testing at a level more stringent than otherwise required? Sure sounds like selective moral outrage to me.

  13. #13 by on March 28, 2011 - 7:31 pm

    Can’t you read Jim? The charge is quite specific brew makes, in detail, whether or not it rises to being beyond the letter of the law is irrelevant, what is relevant is this is the nature of scumbags and scallywags.

    What are you morally outraged about these days Jim? Have anything new?

  14. #14 by james farmer on March 28, 2011 - 7:50 pm

    glenn: When you have something new or positive to contribute, other than sitting in your lazy boy armchair rocker spewing bitter vitriol while waiting for your bi-weekly entitlement check, please let us know. We will all collectively applaud you. Until then, your gobbledygook merely contributes to the ever increasing entropy in the control volume surrounding the Internet.

  15. #15 by on March 28, 2011 - 8:00 pm

    haha, if anyone sits with an entitlement given the vapid offerings of Jim it would be Jim Are you sure you graduated from an ivy league school? You don’t come off as remotely intelligent in what you write or offer. Are you sure you weren’t a token from Vermont to go to what is that place Princeton?

    I don’t own L-Z boy Jim, but gathering what I can surmise from your transparent writings, I’m pretty sure your ass is shining one right now.

    Someday Jim actually make a point, quit relying on the one on the top of your head.

    The fake grass roots people got, or stole, enough votes last time and are using their “political capital” to hang themselves. Their disregard for fellow American workers is stunning, but the swift move to rid themselves of ANY opposition is telling.

    The scary thing is that their efforts to misinform us have placed all of us in a very dangerous situation. Cliff, tries to give all of us a place to sort things out and is attacked by trolls.

    Again: telling!

  17. #17 by Larry Bergan on March 28, 2011 - 10:12 pm

    Maybe when the rest of us are dead, the Koch brothers can commission a movie about their great suffering. Sort of an unimaginative “Gone With The Wind”.

    They can wipe their tears with Brawny.

  18. #18 by shane on March 28, 2011 - 10:28 pm

    I give you credit James, I thought everyone had stopped reading his namelessness by now. Actually reading and responding to him is a bit like watching Glenn Beck on purpose: Not only painful, dull and uninformative, but it most likely lowers the IQ.

  19. #19 by Larry Bergan on March 28, 2011 - 11:38 pm

    Here’s a question:

    I just finished my taxes and I’m counting on the refund to help pay for my property taxes in November.

    If the Teabaggers shut down the Government and the IRS loses my forms, do I still have to pay my property taxes?

  20. #20 by on March 29, 2011 - 4:28 am

    Shane you are responding, and reading. For the record, Glenn Beck has eaten progressives lunch. If you can’t combat him that reflects stupid directly onto you. Have fun on the progressive raft that is washing out to sea. Little late for sunblock, bring some though so you won’t be roasted any further.

    State vs, Federal Larry, of course they will want their pound of flesh in Utah or whatever municipality you claim.

  21. #21 by on March 29, 2011 - 4:31 am

    Larry, Cliff is a troll, you have to know his ways before this blog, he was a troll before the internet. Dupes unite, Larry as leader, we’ll go far..

    The February 2011 budget deficit was a one month record, 222 billion, more than the entire deficit for fiscal year 2007. Geeezus, no wonder we have to steal Libya.

    Washington (CNN) – Americans are far more likely to self identify as conservatives rather than as a liberals or moderate, according to a new Gallup poll released Friday…..

    According to Gallup, “The top 10 rankings make clear that conservative identification is much more common than liberal identification.” Each of the top 10 conservative states came in at over 45 percent, however, only the District of Columbia surpassed the 31 percent mark for liberals. And in every state, conservatives outnumbered liberals.

    Who is going down Down DOWN?

  28. #28 by James Farmer on March 30, 2011 - 9:27 am

    brew: Tell that to the good folks of Wisconsin and see what reaction you get.

  29. #29 by brewski on March 30, 2011 - 9:32 am

    The good folks in Wisconsin who live outside of Madison are pretty conservative.

    These are the same voters who voted for Paul Ryan, Scott Walker, etc.

  30. #30 by Richard Warnick on March 30, 2011 - 9:58 am

    Walker ran as a moderate, then swung hard right after the election.

    If the election between Walker and Milwaukee mayor Tom Barrett were held today, Barrett would win 52-45 percent.

  31. #31 by shane on March 30, 2011 - 10:12 am

    I read a great study about two years ago, where the majority of people self identified as conservative, but when the platforms of both groups where listed as bullet points, with no party identifiers, the vast majority preferred the liberal positions to the conservative positions.

    Marketing, bringing you what you don’t want or need…

  32. #32 by brewski on March 30, 2011 - 12:19 pm

    Shane, have a source?

    I have heard these studies before and as one can imagine, it depends hugely on how each question is worded. The same meaning can be framed differently and you can get wildly different answers.

    For example, you could ask a question such as “do you believe the government should ensure that everyone is treated fairly in the workplace” and most people would say yes. I mean, who is going to say they are against fairness, right? But with the same level of technical accuracy you could ask the question “do you think the Federal government in Washington should enforce laws on private employers which create protected classes of employees based on race and gender?” Most people might say no to that even though it is technically accurate. You could criticize the second question as being invalid since it contains some loaded words, which it does. However, I would argue that the first question is equally unfair since it uses intentionally benign words like “fair” while not mentioning the practical reality of attempting to enforce alleged “fairness”.

    This idea that conervatives are only better at marketing is baloney. I was at a town hall event in 1993 with Dick Armey. Recall that in 1993 that the Dems had controlled Congress continually for 40 years, including during the Reagan era. When asked why Republicans can’t win elections, his answer was “Democrats are better at marketing”. So, this is the cheap answer from people who lose in the marketplace of ideas. “Gee it isn’t that we have lousy ideas that no one agrees with, it’s just we aren’t good at marketing”. I don’t recall Obama claiming he wasn’t good at marketing when he steamrolled McCain.

  33. #33 by brewski on March 30, 2011 - 12:24 pm

    Per CNN:
    Wisconsin self identified:
    Conservative 41.5%
    Moderate 35.9%
    Liberal 19.7%

    Man it must be frustrating when facts get in the way of a good preconceived conclusion.

  34. #34 by brewski on March 30, 2011 - 12:25 pm

    Per Gallup

    Wisconsin self identified:
    Conservative 41.5%
    Moderate 35.9%
    Liberal 19.7%

    Man it must be frustrating when facts get in the way of a good preconceived conclusion.

  35. #35 by Richard Warnick on March 30, 2011 - 12:41 pm

    Right-wingers are good at marketing themselves as “moderate” and “compassionate.” They bring on the lousy ideas that no one agrees with after the election. This is what President Bush did, keeping quiet about his plan to destroy Social Security until he got a second term. The people of Wisconsin are now suffering buyer’s remorse.

    What shane was saying is that a lot of self-identified “conservatives” actually support progressive policies, when these are presented objectively — without the Rush Limbaugh propaganda.

  36. #36 by brewski on March 30, 2011 - 12:53 pm

    Yes, a lot of conservatives do support progressive policies. Including me.

    Also, a lot of liberals support “right winger” policies.

    To paraphrase Cokie Roberts “the center of America is to the right of Pat Buchanan when it comes to illegal immigration”.

    I saw it with my next door neighbor I have mentioned before. She considers herself very liberal. Had a Obama yard sign, wants to legalize gay marriage, legalize pot, etc etc.

    But when she sent her kid to school and his class was 80% non-English speaking she flipped out. On that issue alone, she is what you would call right winger even though that position is the center of America.

  37. #37 by James Farmer on March 30, 2011 - 12:55 pm


    Actually, the results you present suggest the AP is incorrect in its assertion. Indeed, the results you present evidence that Americans are more likely to identify themselves as liberal or moderate than conservatives. Your facts may be correct, but your conclusion is way off.

  38. #38 by on March 30, 2011 - 1:22 pm

    The good people of Wisconsin are not Madison.

    Very good chance the debt ceiling will not be raised and that will mean hundreds of billions in cuts out of mandatory necessity. We’ll see, though it is looking very much like the debt ceiling will not be raised. Game over. We can only hope.

  39. #39 by brewski on March 30, 2011 - 1:53 pm

    Umm, and under the same logic the results I present evidence that Americans are more likely to identify themselves as conservative or moderate than liberal, so what’s your point other than needing to claim the self-identified moderates for your own?

  40. #40 by shane on March 30, 2011 - 1:59 pm

    It sure is amazing that Richard can read what is said, whether he agrees with it or not, and repeat it in different words, yet you brewski seem unable to comprehend what is said, and react to things not there.

    Then you tell us we are stupid and have poor comprehension.

    As James points out, you are creating facts that your data doesn’t support.

    Plus, as the poll says, self identified. That is the point.

    Read it again. We will wait for you…

  41. #41 by Richard Warnick on March 30, 2011 - 2:00 pm


    The Republican wrecking crew in Washington and elsewhere is going to do plenty of damage, no need to cheer them on. We’re not out of the Bush Great Recession, and already they want a Boehner Worldwide Depression. Anything to finish off the middle class.

  42. #42 by James Farmer on March 30, 2011 - 2:06 pm

    brew: That may very well be the case, but that is also not what you originally represented the AP article to state. I am just keeping you on your toes as far as Boolean logic is concerned. 😉 Peace out.

  43. #43 by brewski on March 30, 2011 - 4:52 pm

    As I reread the CNN item, it is a matter of grammar. To be more precise CNN should have said people are more likely to self identify as conservative than they are either to moderate or liberal. You are inferring what CNN said is to mean that people are more likely to self identify as conservative than collectively as moderate and liberal. I didn’t read it to mean that so perhaps it is in your eye. But I can see the confusion.

    As my mother would say “Edinburgh Castle is a beautiful sight riding on the top of a tram car”.
