We all know that the Teabagging movement, in general, is not all that bright. We also know that they’re less of a “movement” and more of a repurposed rebranding of the same old wingnut rage-gasm that has been the base of the modern Republican party for several decades now. Sometimes they say horribly offensive things, but more and more, I’m dumbstruck by how utterly disconnected from reality they are. Consider this quote from Tea Party Nation CEO Judson Phillips, one of the most racist ones they have:
I will tell you ladies and gentlemen, I detest and despise everything the left stands for. How anybody can endorse and embrace an ideology that has killed a billion people in the last century is beyond me.
Uh. Like I said: too stupid, can’t get mad.
What the hell are they even talking about?
