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.
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.
Frankly, I don’t know many people who want to drink Socilism, either.
The person wearing this shirt apparently doesn’t want any of that Socilism either.
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…
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.
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:
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”.
So either he added an apostrophe to “your” or he forget the “e” in “you’re”. In either event, he’s an idiot.
I’m am outraged that you managed to get through school without learning the difference between “your” and “you’re”.
Actually, I suspect that you’ll be fired if you don’t learn to differentiate “your” and “you’re”.
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.
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?
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?
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.
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.
“Your are illegal”? Is that supposed to be “You are illegal” or perhaps “Your our illegal”?
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.
I’m confused. Are “stimulas” a kind of meat or are they something that you cook with? Maybe he meant spatulas?
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.
What exactly is a “theif”? It could be a military term with which I’m unfamiliar.
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!
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.
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.)
Now I’m confused. Is the word amnety, amensty, or amesty? (And note the bonus error in the use of the wrong indefinite article…)
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.
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?
(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.
I also hope that President Obama has a “Crisis of Competnce”; if so, it might suggest that he prefers competence, instead.
I’ve never seen people “wroking” hard, have you?
I wish the person who made this sign spent more time “useing” spell check and less time making stupid signs.
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.
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.
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.
Yep, one “hugh” mistake to let this guy graduate from high school.
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?
We all know that “lobbyest" payoffs” were the primary reason for passage of the healthcare reform legislation.
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…)
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”!
Ooh, scary! “Illegal alliens”! Cute sailor outfit, though.
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?
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.
I had to read this one carefully before I figured out what a “borror” was.
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!
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?)
I’m not even going to try to make sense of the spelling or grammar on this one.
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.
What happened in “Gemany” and I didn’t know that 1930 owned this “Gemany”.
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.
Random apostrophes must keep falling from the sky.
Double stupid apostrophe fail (but he got pimpin’ right, for that extra-special racist touch).
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.
Try pronouncing “enoungh”. Come on, I dare you!
More fun with (missing) apostrophes and a spotting of the rare “thinkg”.
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.
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.
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”.
After learning that “Lanaguage” isn’t spelled correctly, the folks of Crestwood might want stop and tell us what “excetions” are.
Then the folks of Crestwood can ask this idiot what exactly an “offical” language would look like.
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:
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.
