Tea Partiers take San Francisco
SFGate: City Brights ^ | 4/16/10 | Harmon Leon

Posted on 04/16/2010 12:38:17 PM PDT by SmithL

San Francisco you let me down.

Yesterday was the big, fancy National Tea Party Day. As part of their protest against Obama, health care reform, tax day, and the onslaught of socialism that's virtually pissing in the face of the ghost of Ronald Reagan, the Tea Party Patriots took to Union Square to voice their displeasure of all things unpatriotic.

That's right, the Tea Baggers were on our turf, telling the people of San Francisco (or "San Fransicko" as they referred to it) how we're the symbol of everything wrong in this country.

The protest looked not unlike an American flag that threw up all over Union Square and showered red, white, and blue all over a bunch of old people. The festivities had all the elements we've grown to love about Tea Baggers: accusations that Obama is a racist dictator, misspelled signs, speakers from Russia making astute comparisons to their homeland, quotes from General Patton, and shouts of U.S.A! U.S.A! U.S.A.!

The SF papers ever use this headline for a Gay Pride parade?

Most of the people using the term “teabaggers” are FISTERS.

Fisters as in the communist clenched fist and the 0bama fist bump. No sexual innuendo intended.

I though SF was already over run with tea baggers.

More like doush baggers! I am glad the TEA Party protested SF. A lovely, historic city has been taken over by unAmerican destructive mental dwarfs and needs to be slapped back into awareness.

Not any more, you can call Frisco pretty much anything and refuting it is like refuting that the sun rises in the East.

This is juvenile high school crap. Even DNC press releases aren’t this stupid. San Francisco values, indeed.

It is my limited understanding that the true ‘Teabaggers’, in the most deviant homosexual use of the term, are already residents of San Francisco (an affront to and with apologies to the City’s namesake, St. Francis of Assisi).

God help us...

SF has been full of "Teabaggers" for years. But it's good to hear that participants at the Tea Party rallies have their panties in a bunch!

Even SF Gate has that Tea Bagger thing stuck in their throat.

;-) Perhaps they can clear it and get the Tea Party name right next time.

You've hit one of my hot buttons. This playground of the devil has its capitol in a city named for the Sacraments, and its other major cities named after saints and angels.

Maybe so, but the city's founders had a different set of values.

They dare call the Tea party “tea baggers”? That’s what the locals do out there.

If we’re “teabaggers”, does that make most of the womyn in San Francisco “funbaggers”?

I don’t think he did. The author changed it later. If you go to the article and read the comments, they reference the original “Tea Baggers” title.

Someone at the Chron or perhaps the author has changed the title. However, “tea bagger” is still used in the article.

I’ll bet that virtually no one in the Tea Party movment even knows what the term “teabagging” means. They’re not the kind of people who keep up on such things.
