IAFF Flirts with a Racist
An earlier post covered Tea-Bagger Ted Cruz’s recent appearance before IAFF leaders in Washington, DC, and resulted in the following reader comment:
“Little hard on the Hispanic guy there Ericâ€¦..hasnâ€™t the left worn out the â€œtea baggersâ€ monikerâ€¦â€¦how about something new?”
The “Tea Party” appropriates, as well they may, a 242-year-old iconic revolutionary event and I have to have something new?
The earlier post referred to a study which indicates that racial animus is a strong reason for Tea-Bagger membership.
In fact, the decision to adopt a “revolutionary” symbol is not casual.
They are rebelling because there is a “knee-grow” in the White House.
Highlighting Ted’s Hispanic lineage is no doubt designed to obfuscate his rascally and racist leanings.
In fact, the same study that indicates the racial hostility inherent in tea-bagger membership also finds that it does not extend to similar feelings towards Hispanics.
Why not you ask?
Because there is a “knee-grow” in the White House.
That’s the whole point.
It’s not about race, per se.
It’s about knee-grows, or rather, the one in the White House.
As far as “Tea-Baggers” being “worn out”, my position is the more tea-bagging the better.
Putting the tea party and its racist adherents at the metaphorical level of a scrotum or making it a surrogate expression for a “low” sexual act seems about right to me.
