The Tea Party Guide to Thoughtful Political Discussion

Dana Loesch had a post up yesterday bragging about how the tea party "polices" their rallies because they asked a guy to remove a Hitler picture from his sign:

It's pretty funny that Loesch would brag about that, considering that she defended a billboard comparing Obama to Hitler back in July:

It's actually not the first time she forgot her previous ridiculous comments, claiming in August that all Hitler comparisons were from left wing plants.

Still, maybe you could see this as progress. But before the tea party pats themselves on the back too much, it might be worth taking a look at what was on the other side of the sign. Sharp seems to deliberately avoid showing that in his video. Fortunately, I happened to snap a photo of the other side of the sign after the tea party's "policing."

So remember to follow the rules of thoughtful political discourse. Obama can be compared to Hitler on billboards, but not on signs, because doing so on signs is "not helpful." Also, it's totally cool to set fire to pictures of your political opponents and carry coffins to their houses. And finally, making signs that suggest that Obama is secretly a Muslim...highly encouraged!


  1. I saw the video on Dana's site and read that she wrote "Classy, that Adam Sharp." I had to read it several times before I realized she was serious. That word is the last one I'd ever associate with his name. Just another example of Dana's lunacy. She will do or say anything to get attention.

  2. I glimpsed the anti-muslim message on the other side of the sign while watching the original video, and also noted how careful they had been to avoid showing the entire sign. Glad you got the photo.

    By the way, if you go to (Adam Sharp's own site), you'll find comments from other Tea Party faithful saying that Sharp was being too PC by asking the guy to remove the Hitler reference because Obama really is just like Hitler.

  3. Lots of irony in having an expensive tour bus wrapped in an expensive graphic that says "Spending Revolt".

    I mean, it's fucking right there. C'mon, guys.
