Skip to comments.Obama Uses Crude Gay-Baiting Sexual Slur to Attack Tea Party Protesters
Posted on 11/08/2009 8:09:38 AM PST by kristinn
Barack Hussein Obama II, used a crude gay-baiting sexual slur to denigrate Tea Party patriots in a talk with House Democrats yesterday on Capitol Hill, reported the New York Times:
According to Representative Earl Blumenauer of Oregon, who supports the health care bill, the president asked, Does anybody think that the teabag, anti-government people are going to support them if they bring down health care? All it will do is confuse and dispirit Democratic voters and it will encourage the extremists.
The word 'teabag' is used to describe a sexual practice popular in the homosexual community. Earlier this year as the anti-big government protest movement exploded across the country, liberals in the media first started calling conservative and libertarian protesters organizing under the Tea Party banner, "teabaggers," in a juvenile effort to gay-bait the protesters. Democrats, including now the president of the United States, have also used the slur.
The gay-baiting slur was used with gusto on MSNBC in April by anchors David Shuster and rachel Maddow. Newsbusters quoted Shuster:
For most Americans, Wednesday, April 15th will be Tax Day. But in our fourth story tonight: It's going to be teabagging day for the right-wing and they're going nuts for it. Thousands of them whipped out the festivities early this past weekend, and while the parties are officially toothless, the teabaggers are full-throated about their goals.
"They want to give President Obama a strong tongue-lashing and lick government spending - spending they did not oppose when they were under presidents Bush and Reagan. They oppose Mr. Obama's tax rates - which will be lower for most of them -- and they oppose the tax increases Mr. Obama is imposing on the rich, whose taxes will skyrocket to a rate about 10 percent less than it was under Reagan. That's teabagging in a nut shell."
Newsbusters also reported the term was used 51 times in one segment on the Rachel Maddow show.
CNN's Anderson Cooper piled on the same week with his own gay-baiting 'teabagging' slurs.
Hat tip Kathyrn Jean Lopez at NRO.
So to Obama, we are the ‘extremists’, but we are not to call the Fort Hood Islamist barbarian an extremist terrorist...gotcha.
Pray For Our Country!
It CAN be heterosexual. Women can, and do, do this, for their men.
Stay vigilant, America.
Democrats use filthy street language so often that they don’t even realize how crude and disgusting they are. It’s like living in a swamp to have to listen to them talk. They pollute music, awards shows, talk shows, films and even the White House now.
Wow. What a Statesman.
The association with a sexual act of any kind by a sitting president and his opposition is not only beneath the office.........but it is crude vile and immature at the least.
The head of the free world, resorts to gutter behavior, sickening.
I never thought I'd see a president that made slick Willie look good.
I reckon he would know.
I still don't have a clue!
I do not participate in the sexual activities your constituents do. Please refrain from insulting my fellow Patriots. You go to far on all fronts and we will kick your bony arse out of office come November 2012. We will kick your fellow thieves out of Congress come November 2010. We will undo ALL the damage you have inflicted upon this country. We are just gearing up for you and your Black Panthers, ACORN activists and Environmental Terrorists who are the bane of our society. We will NOT BE Tread uoon and you will hear our battle cry come election day
Well, so who is the extremist and don’t we all have a right to make a definition of how we see it, Barry?
“It CAN be heterosexual. Women can, and do, do this, for their men.”
Right. I don’t get the “gay-baiting” claim. I mean... even conservative heterosexuals do things other than the missionary position.
Frankly, I've found few women who have sufficient interest in using the buttons on the joystick console to have their characters do this.
Liberals. Including Obama. You have to stop, and focus. The tea reference has to do with the Boston Tea Party where large quantities of tea was thrown into the Boston Harbor in the 1770’s, a symbolic event demonstrating fierce resistance of the American colonies to British rule.
Tea is a type of leaf used for brewing a hot drink, often taken with sugar and milk or with ice down south.
Now, liberals, you might be able to clear up your confusion.
What I would like to post is this:
Obama agrees those who protests against his policies are Teabaggers.
Obama identified us with those who: [Insert definition here]
But I might be banned :-)
With Barry getting Tea-bagged regularly by this guy...who is he to talk.....
with that kind of immature reporting then no wonder why they have hardly any vie wers
Thanks so much for your yes vote on Affordable Health Care for All Americans - or whatever ridiculous name you guys gave to this monstrosity. I'm sure the trial lawyers are amused and grateful that "Affordable" didn't involve taking away their gravy train
I'll be looking forward to you signing up yourself and your family for the health care plan that you're shoving down our throats.
Or....are all you so called representatives snickering LET THEM EAT CAKE.
What an understanding unifier is he not!? He’s throwing fuel on the flames, and from his lack of leadership, it’s going to get worse before it gets better.
True story or not that sickens me......
Maybe we should ask Michelle what does this mean?
Agreed... what’s with ‘gay-baiting’ in the title.. makes FR look stupid, IMHO.
Although your statment is true it is a deflection away from the fact that the term originated in the Gay community and those who use the term to describe the Tea Party attendees are using it in the Gay context so as to poke fun of those atendees.
Yes, it IS crude, and tasteless. But, not NECESSARILLY gay.
That is what O-hole does. Shoot the bird, snark off like a “homie” - while protected with bodyguards - that is just what he does and who he is.
We have had weak presidents, corrupt presidents, and stupid presidents. But this is our first punk president. Truly transformative, as Parlor Marshal Colin Powell gushed.
The practice is common with homosexuals and uncommon with heterosexuals.
Think about it, what's the fun in that for the libs?
I guess this means the two black athletes that held their arms up during the national anthem at the ‘68 olympics were ‘fisters’.
I am in the dark about what tea bagging is...
This guy wouldn’t dare say the things he does if he didn’t have his back completely secured. Watch for an astounding announcemtnt very soon, folks. GOD BOLESS AMERICA!
As Kakaze correctly points out, that distinction is immaterial. Outside of the Starr, report, when’s the last time we heard a living president talking about a specific sex act?
I’m pretty sure the answer is “never.”
You’re comparing apples and oranges. But I bet you knew that already and are just trying to stir the pot.
Its not a gay thing, its just a sexual thing. And it wasn’t a slur until the Dems started using it as such against the Tea Party protesters. In other news I recently had to explain to my Dad what “teabagging” meant. Thanks MSNBC.
But on the bright side after the recent election I did write some of the more disgusting left wing media types with this message: “If we’re the teabaggers then you just got teabagged!”
“I never thought I’d see a president that made slick Willie look good.”
No kidding. Who knows? Maybe Bubba is behind the obscenity that is Barack Obama, and just for that reason.
So presidential! *O* is a pig.
Well said, Kakaze. This man exposes his true character more and more these days.
There's another clever bending of the truth by our Congenital Liar in Chief.
The tea-parties are not trying to bring down health care. Quite the contrary...they are trying to protect it from being taken over by a corrupt government!
