…that if conservatives are “Tea Baggers” doesn’t that make liberals the “Tea Baggees“?

Of course it does. But no one ever accused our regressive friends of being logical, did they? I mean, if they were, they wouldn’t be regressives to begin with. Or perhaps a good tea-bagging is all they really wanted all along.  The slur was most prominently promoted by Anderson Cooper after all.

The film was written and directed by David Nussbaum. I hope we see more from him. I enjoy high quality snark.

Liberals didn’t actually choose the phrase themselves, if they did they probably would not have picked being tea baggees. Early tea party silly sounding slogans that provoked the jokes in the first place were ones like “tea bag Obama!”, “tea bag the white house!”, and a sign at a tea party rally that said “tea bag the liberal democrats before they tea bag you”.

Anderson Cooper did make a joke with the words “tea bagging” one evening, although it was only the one incident and he’s never used the words “tea bagger”. That was both phrases had already been used extensively on blogs and MSNBC and popularized. Anderson Cooper didn’t prominently promote it, he made a fairly subtle joke when the joke label was already firmly attached to tea partiers, but because he’s a gay man it became a popular false myth among conservative bloggers that he was the guy who’s to blame.

“Tea bagging” or “Tea Baggers” is a nasty, juvenile sexual epithet that pretty much the entire left, including supposedly professional, unbiased media and even leftist politicians started using to refer to Tea Party protesters in order to demean them, Helen. You can look up the meaning on UrbanDictionary.com.

I’ve witnessed Anderson Cooper using the term Tea Baggers, (not to mention most of the rest of the liberal media, and a great many Democrat politicians) with my own eyes and ears, MB.

I would not be surprized that the epithet started on MSNBC, as you say, but like virtually all Americans I don’t watch that childish, radical, dishonest, disreputable network.

From a movement in the spirit of the Boston
Tea party and “Taxed enough already” to a
double_entendre to discredit the movement.

Now the left is looking for people to
infiltrate the group so as to further
damage the Tea party image.

Think of REAL spitting , and RACIST remarks
being used , captured on tape , and splashed
on the Six o clock news.

We will remember in November !

The Town hall meetings were demonized
by the left also.

“I would not be surprized that the epithet started on MSNBC, as you say, but like virtually all Americans I don’t watch that childish, radical, dishonest, disreputable network.”

Those on the left would say the same thing about Fox and talk radio. I wonder who is correct. It must be the “others” that are wrong and infected with a false conscience. (Kind of like those Jews in pre-Nazi Germany.)

Because liberal teachers unions have had a monopoly on education for the past 40 years, and the quality of American public education has been dropping consistently the entire time.

I’m sure they would. They also laughably claim that the media is RIGHT wing. But the American people are voting with their feet, and FOX News now has more viewers than both MSNBC and CNN combined. And FOX News continues to grow, while CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, and NBC continue to shrink. Other propagandists for the Democrat party, like the NYT and WaPo are bleeding readership while the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today are growing. Most liberal blogs are shrinking, while conservative blogs are rapidly growing, according to Wikio.

Foreign news organizations are also seeing rapid growth as the American people are increasingly learning that the “mainstream” American media is no longer trustworthy, and that they get more honest reporting about Obama from foreign papers.

People are tired of the Orwellian propaganda,and are voting with their feet.

So what liberal viewers think is pretty much irrelevant.
