By now, you probably have all seen the video where a crazy man rips a Rosa Parks sign out of Maxine Johnson's hands, crumples it up, and throws it on the floor. The other right-wing tea party people in the audience applaud the man and jeer Johnson as she is escorted out of the building:
And guess what the reaction was of other teabaggers who were outside the event? Well, to blame the victim of course:
Of course, they didn't seem to care about all the other tea party members who brought in signs:
I think this is pretty symbolic of the tea party movement as a whole (note to word parsers, I am not implying that all Republicans or all people opposed to health care are this ridiculous, but a large percentage of the audience clearly was).
