NPR attacks us... "Learn To Speak Tea Bag”
Political Lore ^

Posted on 01/04/2010 8:08:54 AM PST by DecoyJames

Ridicule of Americans who participated in Tea Party rallies is not just for MSNBC and CNN anymore. National Public Radio (NPR) has gone all Alinksy on Tea Partiers, and your tax dollars are helping to pick up the tab.

A prime example of radical socialist Saul Alinksy’s Rule #5 (Ridicule) is featured prominently on NPR’s website — in the form of a flash animation titled “Learn To Speak Tea Bag” — which ridicules tea partiers, pro-lifers, opponents of the Democrat Party’s health care reform, and more specifically, three Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives (John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Michele Bachmann).

They, with their miniscule audience size, are to be ignored. Nobody of note cares about NPR.

This sort of thing only serves to strengthen the resolve of patriots. This is nothing more than fodder for liberals.

Wasn’t it that bunny eyed albino fegala Anderson Cooper that reminded us that in his experience you can’t talk when teabagging? I hate it that now, because of these degenerate bstrds, that I now know what it is, let alone that kids are wondering and the snarky perverted liberals smirk their slimy smiles at “the hicks” who have yet to discover their perversions...

NPR is guilty of “journalistic” malpractice. Since they run on my money it's time my money stops supporting a propaganda arm of the democrat party. Defund NPR now!

Do you suppose that they would post a video “Learn to Speak FudgePack?” about the leftists’ propensity to stick regular taxpayers up the wazzoo—”screwing the taxpayer” so to speak—at every opportunity?

Do you suppose that they’d even allow a comment on their site suggesting a video with that title on their site?

Personally, I don’t know why not—both “tea bagger” and “fudgepacker” are slang terms for homosexual sex acts, and it would seem to me that they are equally offensive. If they allow the one, why not allow the other?

I found this little tidbit awhile back. G Edward Griffin interviewing a Soviet defector back in 1985 who breaks down the four steps in the subversion and takeover of the US. It’s only a segment of the whole interview but I found it quite remarkable. http://www.youtube.com/libertytreeradio#p/a/f/2/zeMZGGQ0ERk

Yeah, I just learned about a month or two ago (here on FR) what that disgusting phrase meant and I was outraged too.

I DETEST these leftwing filth-ridden degenerates and their slang, and their proclivity to use this slang on national television.

The 2010 elections can't come fast enough.

Thanks, but we live in the sticks. I mean THE sticks, with only dial up available. Videos can take half the day, and more to load up if at all, so we don’t bother.

I sincerely thank you for your effort.

I’m looking for the pol, Repub or Dem, who has the grit to call for the defunding of NPR.

Sarah? Senator DeMint? Senator Inhofe? Anyone?

They need to be defunded.

NPR is public, but they don’t act like it. They are left-ideologues who live on the public dime, and its time they get a real job.

Didn't Newt promise to defund government endowments like NPR, CPB, NEA, etc. in the Contract for America? Yes, he did and, despite many years of a Republican president and Republican majorities in House and Senate, the Republicans accomplished nothing in limiting the scope of government. Instead, we got vast expansions in Medicare, NCLB, a bloated and ineffective Homeland Security Department, bridges to nowhere, and numerous other expansions of national government.

The Republican party elite despise the tea party movement just as much as the Dems. The only difference is that the Republican elite think they can exploit the tea partiers for political advantage.

The sad thing is that they will probably succeed. As contemptuous as the Dems are in their ridicule of the tea party movement, at least they don't pretend to identify with its proclamation of individual liberty, free markets, and limited government.

Perfect to send to your local NPR station to explain why you won’t financially support them. I enjoy some of their music programming, but as long as they see fit to insult ?50% of their potential donors, screw them. I’ll just be a freeloader.

I feel your pain about the dial up. Anyway, the four steps he breaks down are DEMORALIZATION; done deal through 3 generations of Marxist BS in the education system. DESTABILIZATION; through the military, foriegn relations and the economy ie spend enourmous amounts of money, promise the people whatever they want especially if it produces crushing debt, and overlay it with an gargantuan Big Brother government. CRISIS, notice nothing works right any more, every level of society is going broke ond becoming dysfunctional. The last was NORMALIZATION; at that point the takeover is complete. There was one amusing part to this scenario. The leftist professors,ACLU, and Southern Perversion Law types will be dissapointed because instead of them rolling into power with the Marxists “they will be lined up against a wall and shot” I had to chuckle at that

I listen on occasion, but the extreme liberal bias is annoying to put it mildly. Getting many perspectives is useful in forming opinions, but the smug self righteous tone and the liberal whining sometimes threatens to drown out the broadcast. The other day someone asked me what that shrill whining noise coming from my radio was and I had to say it was just NPR.>

The only thing that irritates me more than the liberal media sticking us with a name that means a particularly disgusting homosexual sex act, are good folks in Tea Parties sporting teabags to reinforce the image.

Yes, the goal of the Left is to destroy that which is America, and rebuild a new World order with what was once The United States of America as simply another of many Global States in a New World Order governed by a centralized Socialist government entity.

The steps you have relayed are most important to the enemy plan to achieve their goal.

Thanks for your response.

No matter what we “sport,” the left will find a way to equate it to some disgusting act. It is what they do, and what they do is who they are.

good folks in Tea Parties sporting teabags to reinforce the image.

The homosexual culture that uses the disgusting definition of that term is a very small percentage of the whole American population. We are aware of it only now because of the use of it by the leftist media who knows of it because they champion the causes of the activist homosexual community.

The vast majority of Americans, probably 96+%,have never heard the disgusting definition of that phrase. All it means to them is a way to make tea or as a reference to the Boston Tea Party, one of our most important historical stories.

I continue to use the tea bag symbolically because I refuse to concede the tea bag's obvious use as a reminder for the Boston Tea Party which started the whole American Revolution. Kill the Tea Bag and next you'll be backing away from using Tea Party then the whole history and symbolism is lost.

This is a war of ideas. War is hell. If we can't hold on the the predominant definitons of an ordinary object then we lose that battle. Again, most people have never heard the disgusting definition of "tea bagging" including myself who grew up and worked most of my adult life in "hollywood" and am quite familiar with the activist gay community.

The more we use it the more they have to back off.

Don't let them re-define the concept of tea bag or tea party. Please.

How many NPR listeners does it take to change a light bulb?

One to demand change regardless of the cost. Another to swap a perfectly functioning 60-cent bulb for a $15 florescent while loudly demanding that the Federal government subsidize alternative energy. And a third to pledge his support in exchange for an autographed copy of "Earth in the Balance" and an NPR bumper sticker for his Prius.
