Teabaggers Piss Selves, Are Shocked -- Shocked -- To See Selves Revealed As Racists

As could be expected, our publicity campaign outside the recent suburban Virginia healthcare "town hall" generated some wonderful feedback from our local defenders of liberty, many of whom -- despite extensive university education in some cases -- apparently still don't know Democrats from Leftists from Socialism, judging by the reactions to the leafletting of the parking lot outside South Lakes High with this cartoon by DC linester Mike Flugennock:

Let's kick things off with our long-time Special Friends, Freak... uhh, FreeRepublic.com:

This sort of thing is so typical of Moran ~ he, too, suffers from a severe case of brain damage ~

Now, opponents of socialized medicine and the Obama agenda are being depicted as Ku Klux Klan members who want to lynch Barack Obama.

This obviously isn't coming from our side. We're the sane ones in this debate.

The crazier and more insane the left gets, the better we look. Who would want to put these lunatics in charge of their health care?

The other Democrat Representative in this area, Gerry Connolly, has yet to criticize Moran over anything whether it's whoring in the moonlight, harrassing children, beating his wife, or now calling critics of Obama care "KKK" types.

People have this mistaken idea that Connolly (pronounced "cannoli" and he looks like he's had plenty of 'em) is a decent man. He's not if he's going to buy into this stuff.

The racist card is getting old and will cause a backlash.

This is the work of the democrat politicians. I hope they're smart enough (which I doubt) to see what they've done to this country and try to fix it before it gets too late.

We can't fix the racial divide in the U.S., because the racism isn't coming from our side. It's out of our hands.

I believe that the Dems have caused it on purpose.

Yes, folks, you heard right; "Democratic Party member = Leftist"? Or, do they mean "Leftist = Democratic Party member"? Seriously, these people think that people in the Democratic Party are "Leftists" just by being Democrats! Hell, they actually think that this cartoon was paid for by the Democratic Party, specifically Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran! Pardon us while we laugh until we crap our drawers.

That's right, we're talking about a statement of plain raw truth -- about as raw as anyone can stand it -- and the Teabaggers think it was perpetrated by a lame-assed, standard-issue corporate Democrat like Jim Moran, who probably wouldn't even be able to summon up the balls to take his own side in a barfight. Being offended by your own reflection in the mirror is one thing, but to attempt to pin the rap for this cartoon on a butterball outfit like the Democratic Party? Oh, how we laughed around the office here at TTAC.

Anyway, on to what is apparently the original source of this brouhaha, and who all the other Teagging blogs are cribbing their copy from, Marooned in Marin:

A number of people left last night's polite and information-packed "town hall" meeting in Reston to find these stuffed under their car windshields. We've cropped out the URL at the bottom to avoid giving these folks any more attention than they deserve.

Wounded, we are, absolutely wounded, to think they'd crop our URL from our inline image, after all those people probably took copies home and typed in the URL on their own. But, really -- polite? information-packed? We suspect MinM may have accidentally accelerated his Z4 to a South Lakes High in an alternate universe; the healthcare Town Hall we attended featured some long-winded busting of some of the more egregious myths about Obamacare before Jim Moran finally shut his cakehole and brought on Dean so we could get on with the mayhem. But, anyway, on to our favorite comments from the MinM thread:

A typical leftist trope. Right out of отдел агитации и пропаганды, the old Soviet Department for Agitation and Propaganda. William Ayers (who co-wrote Dreams from My Father) has some of this in his Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism.

As we said, some of these people have an actual university education; hell, this guy even knows a snatch of Russian -- learned no doubt under deep cover at a listening post in Kiev back in '62. Never mind that Stephen Hawking here promptly tries to drag Bill Ayers into it -- c'mon, that's so Last October -- and then pin it on a bunch of broken-down old Stalinists, like ANSWER. Thanks for playing; here's a copy of our home game. So, Bob, who's our next contestant...?

Here's the funny thing about this... the URL that was on these flyers is actually for a blog that's critical of the teabaggers, and that has explored, among other things, how they're being cynically manipulated by business interests. It posted the picture presumably to embarrass these folks.

Which begs a question: Did the racist clowns who put these on people's windshields in Reston the other night purposefully add the URL of that blog to discredit it, or were they just too jacked up to notice?

Please, please, please, Mr. Golf Cart Drivin' Guy...if the URL to this blog is there to embarass us, then why the hell did we lead off our first post with it -- and use in our masthead, f'cryinoutloud? Also, it is important to note that we at the offices of TTAC do not get -- as you say -- jacked up. High, buzzed, chillin', mellow, laid-back, feelin' right, perhaps, but never, ever "jacked up".
