More Pictures from 9/12 Teabagger’s who insist this is only about healthcare & deficits and has nothing to do with race….
Enjoy the pictures. I’m not sure which is funnier, the signs, the costumes, or the post rally hi-jinx. The teabaggers are trying to inflate the number in attendance from the true number (DC Police estimate a crowd of 70K) to one or two million. They even sent the right-wing bloggers pictures of todays crowds, with only one small problem, their picture is sunny and bright, and today’s weather in DC is clowdy and raining. More info on the crowd scam here.
Demonstrators take photos of an Obama sign placed under droppings from a police horse.
The final product.
Sign referencing Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), a leader of the 1960s civil rights movement.
We came unarmed...this time
Where's my gun?
Another We came unarmed...this time
Ok, this one is a toss-up. I can’t decide which is more disgusting. Is it the picture of poor deceased Terri Schiavo, the actual picture of someone’s grandmother in their coffin, or using a graphic photo of the Twin Towers in flames. Maybe its the fact that they had the nerve have an American flag and a quote from the Bible on this entire piece of crap.
So now Nancy Pelosi is a Nazi too?
The sign was held by a 16 year old kid.
According to Andrew Sullivan the protestor is comparing an attempt to privately ensure millions of people currently uninsured is the equivalent of this:
Action T4 (German: Aktion T4) was a program, also called Euthanasia Program, in Nazi Germany spanning October 1939 until August 1941, during which physicians killed 70,273 people specified in Hitler’s secret memo of September 1, 1939 as suffering patients “judged incurably sick, by critical medical examination”, but described in a denunciation of the program by Cardinal Galen as long-term inmates of mental asylums “who may appear incurable”.
Wouldn't be a teabag party with out a birther sign
more birther fun
Just in time for Halloween, it's the hearse from the Munsters
Shout-out to Dick Cheney
Just had to give this sign an honorable mention...
Anybody stupid enough to carry a “Wilson for President”…..
ThinkProgress’ Victor Zapanta produced a video from the rally today, and ThinkProgress reader Vikrum Aiyer submitted several photographs.
The following quote from Democratic Tribune’s diary “Unprincipled Dissent” sums up the day.
I have no problem with principled, respectful conservative ideology. This nation wasn’t meant to operate under one line of thought – and regardless of how we may feel about various viewpoints, spirited debate featuring pluralism makes for a more robust polity.
That being said, the level of classlessness on display at the conservative D.C protest, while not entirely unsurprising, continues to be appalling and completely useless to the process of formulating and implementing public policy solutions – particularly where the health care reform debate is concerned.
Now for a little sanity…
Obama Takes On “Socialism Label” At Health Rally In Minnesota Today
One pro-healthcare reform man braves the crowd, it was a good thing the police were protecting him, because the crowd was ready to mob him.
