Teabaggers Show How Not To Be Racist

Non-racist teabaggers? They're like unicorns and compassionate conservatives. They do exist. But only in the realm of fantasy inhabited by little kids, stoners and people who take Fox News at their word.

However much those angry white folks who hop on the 'bagging bandwagon may protest their MLK-like lack of racism, it's hard not to look like a racist c*nt when you attack pretty much everyone who isn't a white heterosexual conservative Christian like yourself.

The 'baggers love hating Muslims, for example, because it's the bigot's twofer: You get to be a racist and a religious chauvinist. Take the Teaparty flyer drumming up attendees for an anti-mosque protest in Temecula, California:

An e-mail alert sent to area newspapers last week announced that a one-hour "singing – praying – patriotic rally" will begin at 12:30 p.m. July 30 at the Islamic Center’s existing facility. The advisory – sent by a leader of a conservative coalition that has been active with Republican and Tea Party functions – recommended participants "bring your Bibles, flags, signs, dogs and singing voices."

Apparently, someone once told the teabagger Obersturmf├╝hrers that Muslims aren't keen on dogs so they think Bibles and dogs will be like bringing garlic and crucifixes to an anti-vampire rally. With dogs in mind, here's a good line from Proverbs that 'baggers should consider next time they protest the existence of a minority group while also trying to claim they're not racists:

"Like a dog that returns to his vomit is a fool who repeats his folly."

And there's more...

Ron Ramsey, Tennessee’s lieutenant governor and Teaparty-approved gubernatorial hopeful, is suggesting that Islam could be reclassified as a cult so those pesky Constitutional rights about religious freedom will no longer apply. Then 'baggers could just go round closing mosques and partying like it's 1930s Berlin. Ramsey sums up the bigot's twofer perfectly:

"You could even argue whether being a Muslim is actually a religion or is it a nationality, way of life or cult, whatever you want to call it."

Sure. You could argue that "Muslim" is a nationality. But you'd be as dumb a hick as Ramsey if you did.
