Will you be tea bagging today?

When I read about left wing extremists in the news, I don't identify with them nor do I lump all liberals and democrats in with them. When we protested the war in DC, we weren't wishing that Bush was dead nor did anyone want to kill him. Of course we would like to see him tried for war crimes and thrown in jail.

But when the DHS released a warning about right wing extremists and the danger they pose, Michelle Malkin and Newsbusters went up in arms saying that the DHS was targeting all conservatives. Duh. If I were a conservative, I'd give her a piece of my mind. After all, in all fairness not all conservatives are anti-government, pro-gun bigots who'd like to see Obama dead. I'm sure that many of you know wingnuts who would like to see bad things happen to the president but you don't automatically lump them together with everyone who voted for McCain. More on this

Today the anti-government crowd will be teabagging each other across the land. The teabagging was organized and funded by Dick Armey, Newt Gingrich, corporate lobbyists, Fox News and billionaires. They are touting this as a "grassroots" event. ha! They are comparing their display of civil disobedience to a Move On event. Of course we all know that Move On is not funded by corporate lobbyists, the news media or billionaires. More on this

David Shuster who filled in on Countdown said about the teabagging party
The people who came up with it are a familiar circle of Republicans, including former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, both of whom have firm support from right wing financiers and lobbyists. … We can only speculate why widespread tea bagging made [Neil] Cavuto think of the Million Man march, unless he got them confused with Dick Armey. And in Cavuto’s defense, if you are planning simultaneous tea bagging all around the country, you’re going to need a Dick Armey.
