The Unauthorized 9.12 Teabagger Tour

Brought to you by Max Blumenthal and Alternet.org

Max Blumenthal covers the 9.12 anti-Obama rally on the National Mall, where teabaggers demonstrated their opposition to healthcare reform by calling Obama the biggest Nazi in the world, claiming he wants to put “real” Americans in concentration camps, and was born in Kenya.

But how many of them have health insurance, and do they know they’re pawns in the game of healthcare industry front man Dick Armey? Of course not.

In his article, 9/12 Protest: Here’s What Fox News Didn’t Broadcast, Max explains what he witnessed in Washington:

My video tour of the 9.12 Project is yet another exhibit of how the Republican Party’s big tent became a one-ring circus that operates according to the rules of P.T. Barnum: “There’s a sucker born every minute.”

For the inside story of how the radical right took over the GOP and drove it to the margins, check out Max’s new book, “Republican Gomorrah: Inside The Movement That Shattered The Party

    Is this America, or Springerville? Those people are embarrassing to normal Americans. It’s one thing to protest, that’s all well and good, but to be so obviously ignorant–I shudder to think how the rest of the world sees us, not for the protests, but for the words coming out of the protesters mouths.

      So true PCL, I remember how the other countries praised America in November for turning our backs against racial politics by electing this countries first African-American President.

      Now, they must be thinking, meh….not so much

      Its a shame how the media focuses on the right-wing fringe elements, when the majority of the country is not like that.
