T-Bagging Obama

Thats not how you do it

Thats not how you do it

Its ok, its historical….

With all the talk of tea parties in the US as a protest against the porkulous spending orgy about to be embarked upon Im surprised there haven’t been any references to t-bagging “the one”.

Here’s the protests Im talking about http://www.ajc.com/services/content/printedition/2009/02/28/legteaparty0228.html

The rant which started this is a thing of beauty, and should be shown more widely.

For those of a delicate disposition Id recommend not venturing below the fold, the version of tea party Im about to elaborate on is NSFW.

God Really Does Hate Climo-Tards!

A few posts ago, I speculated that God must hate climo-tards, because The Gore Effect manifests whenever they protest global warming “climate change.” Well, right on cue, a blizzard shut down today’s climate protest in Washington. It even kept Nancy Pelosi from appearing.

“(CNSNews.com) – Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) had to cancel an appearance Monday at a global warming rally in Washington, D.C., that was hit by a snowstorm because her flight was delayed, her office told CNSNews.com.

Brianna Cayo-Cotter, the spokesman for the Energy Action Coalition that held the rally, told a group of reporters that she had been in contact with Pelosi and that her flight had been delayed because of inclement weather.

A blizzard Sunday night and early Monday morning blanketed the nation’s capital with snow, causing events to be cancelled and delayed across the city.

House Select Energy Independence and Global Warming Chairman Edward Markey (D-Mass.), who was scheduled to speak at the global warming event, also canceled his appearance because of the inclement weather, a spokesman from his committee’s office told CNSNews.com on Monday.”

Frankly, anything that keeps Pelosi away from D.C. is good by me.

Humorously, this was all predicted by Greg Pollowitz of Planet Gore back in December.

“That’s right, folks: the Left’s day of civil disobedience in D.C. to protest global warming looks to be snowed out — just as I predicted back in December. [Must-read links here – Beef]

Adding insult to injury, Princeton physicist Dr. William Happer compared climo-tards to human-sacrificing Aztecs before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment back on February 25th.

“Happer noted that climate change has long worried humans.

“Sometimes the obsession for control of the climate got a bit out of hand, as in the Aztec [society] where the local scientific/religious establishment of the year 1500 had long since announced that the debate was over and at least 20,000 human sacrifices a year were needed to keep the sun moving, the rain falling; and thus stop climate change. The widespread dissatisfaction of the [neighboring tribes] who were unfortunate enough to be the source of these sacrifices played an important part in the success of the Spanish conquest of Mexico.”…

Happer told the Senators, “I believe that the increase of CO2 is not a cause for alarm and will be good for mankind,” noting that more CO2 helps plants yield more food per acre.”

Epic LULZ!

When are you climo-tards going to learn? God hates you! Why? Because you’re stupid, that’s why.


A dire warning from Tim Blair:

“He’s watching us, people. Remain vigilant.”

Be afraid.  Be very afraid.
