https://twitter.com/miaaculpa/status/277960483397574657

Yuk, yuk, yuk! Ah, the wit and wisdom of the Better Than You classy Left! Intolerance and nastiness is totally cool, as long as you are slamming those icky Tea Party rubes, natch. Feast your eyes on more of their “humor.”

Flag?! Oh, the horror!

Err … Tea party is not “tea bagger.” Sweetie, y’all came up with that classy moniker. New tone! Civility!

This Twitter user was swift to hijack the absurd hashtag.

Bingo!

Don’t leave her hanging: Calling all happy warriors! Do we smell a Twitter-wide hijack? Make it happen.

Update: Ask and ye shall receive.

    I like how they always bring up gubmint “building” things like bridges and highways.

    There is not ONE federal agency, similar to a state DOT that actually “builds” anything. Construction is accomplished by the dreaded private sector. That is, when the project is not being stopped by numerous wings of the Democrat Party (greenies, PETA, and the moonbats that can’t be placed into categories.)

    • conservativechick

      The government doesn’t have money. (unless they print more to make ours less valuable) That would be the working tax payers’ money. Quick, someone PLEASE tell them that!

        • Vennoye

          True statement!!! They believe that with a fiat currency, you can raise the debt ceiling to infinity and just print money and everybody be happy…a little thing like no one buying our bonds and us monetizing our debt never enters their little minds!!!!

          I’m with Streetiebird… I can’t believe anyone actually thinks there’s male homosexual sex occurring in San Francisco and that if it is chances are they’re left of center politically. You anti-gay bigot you….
          I also can’t believe the left uses a gay slur to insult the Tea Party, you know, since the left is so pro gay rights and all…

    These undiagnosed Aspbergers sufferers remind me of my friend’s mentally ill son who likes to tell poop jokes and say things like “we should kill all the rich people and give their money to the poor”. I said to him, well if you’re going to be killing anyway, doesn’t it make more sense to kill all the poor people? Pretty sure he is still blinking in confusion.

    #youmightbeateabagger if you believe the States need to hold a Constitutional Convention and ratify a Balanced Budget Amendment.

    • RogueRose

      No need for a Constitutional Convention, let’s just pass a Balanced Budget Amendment…

      • therantinggeek

        As much as I would like to agree with you, with the current gridlock we have in Congress, the only way to get around this is for two-thirds of the State Legislatures to call for a Constitutional Convention. Article V of the U.S. Constitution allows for this type of procedure:

        “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.”

        Once the proposed Amendment has been drafted, three-fourths of the State Legislatures (or State Conventions, depending upon how the bill is written) would then have to ratify (approve) of its passage.

    • walterc

      Holding a convention opens up the entire constitution. Just pass and amendment.

      • therantinggeek

        Possibly? Article V of the U.S. Constitution makes it very clear on the amendment process. I’ve gone into further detail in my response to Rogue Rose.

    Oh, so Liberals have a hashtag making fun of tea party and its classless but somehow all the republican hashtags making fun of liberals is classy? Hypocracy??

    • dkhilly

      It’s classless not for the mockery, but for the vulgar term “tea bagger.” I think vulgarity from either side is classless.

      • R1486

        True, it’s classless, yet I feel twitchy tries to create this idea that the left is the only one that make disrespectful hashtags.

        • conservativechick

          Wait so accusing the left of being classless is not ok?

          • R1486

            Not when you refuse to call out your own political parties classless hashtags.

          • R1486

            Oh yeah, I forgot, the whole point of twitchy is to call out how partisan left everything is all while being partisan right as if either is any better. Partisan politics are a joke and only divide people more. Twitchy is no better than MSN in their partisan propoganda.

          • Army Vet Chic

            Hello! You are on a conservative website run by a conservative. Don’t come here expecting to hear anyone talking about how great liberals are. Liberals have MSNBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, MediaMatters, DailyKOS, BuzzFeed, and many more to cater to their ego. Don’t expect the few sites or stations that lean right or try to be center, if even just a little, to swing to your side. If you don’t like what this site/blog/story has to say about the Left, then go to one of the aforementioned media outlets and congregate there.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            omg i can hear the whiney coming out of your comment. ewwww just shut up.

        • Teresa Davis McCormick

          yes but notice we are on twitchy and not in your house so if you don’t like it..you can go.

  • Jack Deth

    #YouMightBeATeabagger: If you find yourself explaining the three branches of government and how they work to a large group of Other Than Caucasian voters waiting in line at the polling place. Exploding the myth that Obama is king. No matter how fervently others believe it to be true. And connecting with about six out of fifty.

    • R1486

      Wow man, racist much? As if minorities are the only voters who are misinformed..

      • Jack Deth

        They are in Prince George’s County, MD. Which is 61% other than Caucasian, 87% Democrat and 64% state or federal government employed.

        An average representation of the state, which many, including myself consider ‘L.A. East’.

        • R1486

          Again, just because where you live the population is 61% minority, does not mean they are all misinformed. You’re suggestion that minorities don’t know about government is dillusional and disingenuous.

          • Jack Deth

            Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah!

            Is anyone else getting just a bit annoyed at the bed wetting, perpetually offend left and brainless Obama Bot’s continuous, near Pavlovian, knee jerk reaction to any and everything, the instantly drawn and pathetically useless ‘Race Card’?

            Especially when it is used by a naive, still wet behind the ears Troll with delusions of grandeur and Fifteen… Count ’em, FIFTEEN whole comments!

            But then, maybe that’s the only obsolete weapon they have in their inventory?

          • R1486

            Hah! Get a clue man, just because I don’t agree with your view points doesn’t mean I’m an Obama Bot. I never voted for Obama. Just because I don’t suck the teet of the right-wing propoganda machine doesn’t mean I’m some liberal communist socialist Nazi lover.

            I seriously doubt 1 black American out of 100 could name the 3 branches of the federal gov’t. That 95% of them voted for Obama shows without a doubt they are cretins AND racists.

          • Teresa Davis McCormick

            he was actually standing there and talking to the people he’s talking about. Why the heck is he racist just by saying they weren’t white? You are really effed in the head.

        It’s not racist if it actually happened, R1486…

        • R1486

          saying that someone is misinformed on government by itself is not racist, suggesting that it is minorities that are the ones that are misinformed IS racist because the statement is deliberately calling out a specific ethnicity and labeling it as “stupid”.

    Why do liberals insist on trolling with words like “teabagger”? If they are looking for that kind of action–based on the libs that post here, I’d guess they’d have better luck on liberal sites….

  • Army Vet Chic

    Both sides have names for each other. Libs go to their blogs/channels/sites to complain about cons picking on them just like cons do it on their one channel/sparse web sites. Please, libs, don’t come to a conservative site and expect anyone to be sticking up for you. Its just really insulting to anyone’s intelligence to troll a conservative site as a lib saying you are not a lib while spouting lib accusations of intolerance by the right while defending the same behavior from the left. Dummies.

  • Andrew Young

    So a quick check on Twitter and yes the hijacking has begun.

  • iSheeple

    “Teabagger” is not derogatory. Before the Tea Party existed, in 2007, a citizen, outraged by the Bank Bailouts, in the forums of Market-Ticker.org , suggested sending tea bags to congress. It was here, in Karl Denninger’s website, the Tea Party was born. I have to laugh every time I hear a liberal use “Teabagger” as a derogatory term. They are so shallow.
