We’re not suggesting that teabaggers would promote anything to keep brown people down. (Just ask Rep. John Lewis!) We’re just saying that in a time when everyone opposed to the new Arizona law is crying racism and everyone for it is saying it’s not racist and the only people for it are white people…
Anyway, three weeks ago we wrote that teabaggers were missing an opportunity to prove they’re not racist assholes. Consider that opportunity missed. Permanently. From Talking Points Memo:
Tea Party activists are riding to Arizona’s rescue in the state’s time of need.
Conservative activists recently launched a “Buycott”, urging people to support and do business with several Arizona-based companies, including US Airways, Best Western, and U-Haul. And others are planning a rally to “Stand With Arizona.”
Any group that would prop up a shitty corporation such as US Airways may not be a racist, but it certainly is made up of dumb, undiscerning sons of bitches. On the count of three, name a worse airline.
Ha! You can’t do it. Moving on:
Gina Loudon, a St. Louis-based Tea Party leader, who helped get the Buycott off the ground and is tracking its impact, told TPMmuckraker that it likely has generated “hundreds of thousands of dollars,” in spending for the companies involved, but said she hadn’t yet had a chance to count the receipts she’s been sent. “The numbers are probably astounding, as soon as I have time to add them up,” she said.
Loudon recently helped organize similar Buycotts of Ford and Whole Foods, after both companies came under fire from progressive activists. “I can’t imagine right now in this American economy that anybody wants a boycott of anything,” she said. “I think it’s incredibly destructive.”
Sure. Teabaggers: Spend money you claim you don’t have in the effort to prop up companies that…
Oh, forget it. This Arizona story gets more and more retarded every day. But the best part is the following statement from the “Stand With Arizona.”
Arizona is under heavy fire from the left-wing bullies for trying to protect its own citizens from the ravages of illegal immigration. The entire state is being attacked as ‘racist,’ ‘nazi’ and ‘extremist.’ (Sound familiar?) The left-wing bullies believe they can target, isolate and neutralize Arizona, and thereby pressure the people of Arizona to stop enforcing the law.
Yes, it does sound familiar! That’s what teabaggers call Barack Obama each day and twice on Sunday!
But in all honesty, is anyone surprised that a group of people who think the tanning tax is racist can’t see the connection between the Arizona law and race-based discrimination?
If you’re not surprised, you’re thinking. If you answered, “THE TANNING TAX IS RACIST, F.U. COMMIE,” you’re a teabagger.
