Teabonics: More Reasons to Fear the Teabaggers

In the past, I’ve posted several sets of photos of signs taken at Tea Party protests to show the hateful, racist, and violent rhetoric. Today, I want to return to the subject of Tea Party signs, but from a slightly different perspective. Now, before looking at the signs, it is important to remember that these protesters think our country is on a downhill slide to socialism, communism, fascism, totalitarianism, and who knows what else. In any event, I think that it’s fair to conclude that they are worried about the future of America. Well, as these signs should attest, we should all be worried about America, but not for the reasons these folks are. The idiocy of the teabaggers has led to a whole new dialect: Teabonics! And yes, Sarah Palin was the first person to actually speak this new dialect. You betcha.

You need to look at the following signs very carefully.

Teabonics: Take Back Amercia! by Pargon.

I’m going to keep this simple. If you can’t spell “America” you probably shouldn’t be at the protest in the first place.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Frankly, I don’t know many people who want to drink Socilism, either.

Teabonics by Pargon.

The person wearing this shirt apparently doesn’t want any of that Socilism either.

Teabonics by Pargon.

This lady isn’t worried about Socilism; instead her concern is with “Scholiast Policies”. Do those policies have something to do with scholastics? I “hope” so…

Teabonics by Pargon.

Others apparently worry more about President Obama being a “socialest” and approve of Sen. McCain’s former status as a “mavrik”. And remember: That Confederate flag has nothing to do with racism, either.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Well, at least this person was able to spell “socialism” correctly, even if contractions are a bit of a challenge. Apparently, difficulty with contractions and apostrophes is actually endemic to and a hallmark of teabaggers:

Teabonics by Pargon.

I don’t know Rep. Nancy Pelosi; Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Oklahoma) says that she is a “nice lady”. In any event, I suspect that before you get elected to be the first woman Speaker of the House, you probably learn that “your” does not mean “you are”.

Teabonics by Pargon.

So either he added an apostrophe to “your” or he forget the “e” in “you’re”. In either event, he’s an idiot.

Teabonics by Pargon.

I’m am outraged that you managed to get through school without learning the difference between “your” and “you’re”.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Actually, I suspect that you’ll be fired if you don’t learn to differentiate “your” and “you’re”.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Next up in the Mr./Ms. Teabag America pageant, is Mr./Ms. “Patriotic Resisance”. We’re not sure where that’s located, but it sounds like a nice place for a summer vacation.

Teabonics by Pargon.

So  how does this “Wealth Redistribtion” thing work, anyway? Also, should I be more worried about Red Communism than say, Blue Communism, or maybe Purple Polka Dot Communism?

Teabonics by Pargon.

Oh, I see. Redistribtion of wealth involves deviding. Got it. By the way, with regard to his work ethic, I think standing on the street complaining is a terrific example of work ethic, don’t you?

Teabonics by Pargon.

No, “Feedom Doesn’t Come Free” … but a good public education does. This kid might try it instead of standing around protesting. His teachers must be so proud.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Given that the housing crisis was a large contributing factor to the current economic situation, you’d think that this guy wouldn’t be worried about a “mortage”. But his “childs” future should be great without any pesky apostrophes.

Teabonics by Pargon.

“Your are illegal”? Is that supposed to be “You are illegal” or perhaps “Your our illegal”?

Teabonics by Pargon.

I didn’t know that the US was a ship upon which “boarders” needed to be controlled. Ah, but these folks have American flags and mutton chops, so they must know better.

Teabonics by Pargon.

I’m confused. Are “stimulas” a kind of meat or are they something that you cook with? Maybe he meant spatulas?

Teabonics by Pargon.

Clearly Fox News is doing a great job keeping the teabaggers “infromed”. Way to go Fox! Of course if you actually watch Fox News, then this shouldn’t be a surprise:

I’ve worried about “Palin’s Imapct” since she came on the scene.

Teabonics by Pargon.

What exactly is a “theif”? It could be a military term with which I’m unfamiliar.

Teabonics by Pargon.

How embarrassing must it be to spend money to have a t-shirt printed and not use your spell check first? The word “loses” is supposed to appear three times; he spelled it correctly once. Maybe we should add the following line: Remedial: When you have to go back to school to learn to spell!

Teabonics by Pargon.

I think that I’m against amensty too, just on principle. It sounds too much like something you might catch from hanging around teabaggers for too long.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Do you think that amnety is related to amensty? (And is anybody else offended that a parent would have their very young child attend one of these protests and sit behind that sign? I’m sure that little girl will grow up to be a well-educated, tolerant woman.)

Teabonics by Pargon.

Now I’m confused. Is the word amnety, amensty, or amesty? (And note the bonus error in the use of the wrong indefinite article…)

Teabonics by Pargon.

I presume that she has more than one of these “daugters” about whom she is worried. I make the presumption of plural possessive because I know that teabaggers understand, quite well, the proper use of apostrophes.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Two mistakes for the price of one! (How quickly did you spot ‘em?) I’m not sure about dumping “Polititions”. That sounds like it might be environmentally unfriendly. Shouldn’t we recycle or at least put them in a properly maintained landfill?

Teabonics by Pargon.

(I know this one is hard to read. It says “Stop Waisting My Hard Earned Tax Money”.) I didn’t know that the government had been putting her tax money around people’s waists.

Teabonics by Pargon.

I also hope that President Obama has a “Crisis of Competnce”; if so, it might suggest that he prefers competence, instead.

Teabonics by Pargon.

I’ve never seen people “wroking” hard, have you?

Teabonics by Pargon.

I wish the person who made this sign spent more time “useing” spell check and less time making stupid signs.

Teabonics by Pargon.

The culture of dependency may be a problem, but if dependency on your spell check program helps avoid misspellings like “dependancy”, then perhaps it’s OK.

Teabonics by Pargon.

I love this one. Does this person want us to put the peel back on Congress or take the peel off again? I’m not sure. Cute pig.

Teabonics by Pargon.

This sign is sort of a double. First we get the reference to the racist idiot’s “Forefathes”. That must be a term with religious significance with which I’m not familiar. But just in case that wasn’t enough, the guy goes full bore racist with the Kenya reference and the statement “that explains a lot about you”. Nope, no racism in the tea party movement. Move along, move along.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Yep, one “hugh” mistake to let this guy graduate from high school.

Teabonics by Pargon.

For the record, according to The Free Dictionary, “lier” means “[o]ne who lies down; one who rests or remains, as in concealment.” Did the person who made this sign mean to suggest that President Obama is resting or hiding on the job?

Teabonics by Pargon.

We all know that “lobbyest" payoffs” were the primary reason for passage of the healthcare reform legislation.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Funny. I always thought that dissent — you know, things like criticism and commentary — was the highest form of patriotism, not climbing down from places in silly costumes. (And query whether this guy thought that people who criticized President Bush were patriots or traitors…)

Teabonics by Pargon.

I’ve written before about the calls for President Obama’s impeachment without any reason. Now this lady has gone even further and called for us to “Impeah Obama”!

Teabonics by Pargon.

Ooh, scary! “Illegal alliens”! Cute sailor outfit, though.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Either nobody honked at his sign or nobody driving by was able to spell, either. And does this guy think he’s one of the men in black?

Teabonics by Pargon.

They’re right. There is no “Hussien Obama”, just a “Hussein Obama”. But using that oh so scary middle name really helps to convince me that there isn’t any racism afoot.

Teabonics by Pargon.

I had to read this one carefully before I figured out what a “borror” was.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Forget that ACORN is not involved in the census; forget that ACORN has essentially ceased operations; forget that the whole pimp and whore videotape scandal was essentially a hoax; and forget that banning a group like ACORN would violate both the First Amendment (freedom of association) and the provision against bills of attainder in Article I Section 9 of the Constitution. None of that matters if you can’t even spell ACORN!

Teabonics by Pargon.

We better watch out for this “sociazed health care” because it would restrict a woman’s right to choose! (Oh, did you catch the bonus missing apostrophe?)

Teabonics by Pargon.

I’m not even going to try to make sense of the spelling or grammar on this one.

Teabonics by Pargon.

So what exactly is the “sactity of marriage”? Does that have something to do with the man getting to tell the woman what to do, her being barefoot and pregnant, and the two of them having a bunch of kids that can’t spell? The little N with the arrow is a nice try.

Teabonics by Pargon.

What happened in “Gemany” and I didn’t know that 1930 owned this “Gemany”.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Well, really, now. How many of us “were” slaves? I mean, unless you’ve recently immigrated from one of those rare places where slavery is still practiced, it seems really unlikely that you’d be a slave.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Random apostrophes must keep falling from the sky.

Double stupid apostrophe fail (but he got pimpin’ right, for that extra-special racist touch).

Teabonics by Pargon.

Another one that I had to think about for a minute. “Clunkker care”?

He got a Cambodian temple in his refund? Somehow, I don’t think of Camodian wats as being named Chang, though; that seems more Chinese to me.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Try pronouncing “enoungh”. Come on, I dare you!

Teabonics by Pargon.

More fun with (missing) apostrophes and a spotting of the rare “thinkg”.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Illiterate “plummers” of the world unite! At least those plungers don’t look as dangerous as the guns some teabaggers feel the need to carry to these protests.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Much like contractions, the rule regarding whether to use “a” or “an” seems to bedevil teabaggers. (Note the scooter which was almost certainly paid for by Medicare….)

Another theme running through some of the teabag signs is the anti-immigrant (remember, no racism here…) sentiment expressed by the “English is our official language” movement.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Of course, this “English is the official language” movement might have more success if: (a) it weren’t quite so racist, and (b) those espousing it didn’t offer us gems like “Lanaguage”.

Teabonics by Pargon.

After learning that “Lanaguage” isn’t spelled correctly, the folks of Crestwood might want stop and tell us what “excetions” are.

Teabonics by Pargon.

Then the folks of Crestwood can ask this idiot what exactly an “offical” language would look like.

Teabonics by Pargon.

A bit more racism to go with the poor grammar: “Are-country”?

And, as we’re all well aware, the teabaggers have a real affinity for the Constitution, even if they can’t spell it, let alone tell us what it really says:

Teabonics by Pargon.

And finally…

Teabonics by Pargon.

You know what I think is “Rediculous”? The number of teabaggers who can’t spell correctly and who can’t manage to put a simple apostrophe in the right place.

This is amazing. I am always horrified by the abuse of the English language. And I am always horrified by Republicans.

Absotutely hilaroyous! They sure are scarey! BUT SERIOUSLY THEY ARE! unbelievably idiotic fundamentalists and sensationalists in the midst of a great, great nation and people! And I am a foreigner who can tell the difference - both when my spellings are correct/incorrect and when I see grace/disgrace.
