On Thursday, April 15, Tea Partiers from around the country gathered in the nation's capital to protest what they percieved to be egregious increases in taxation under the Obama administration, despite taxes having actually been lowered for 98% of working Americans.

The usual anti-science and nativist rhetoric, and praise of Fox News personalities, ensued.

This NEW LEFT MEDIA film was produced and edited by Chase Whiteside (interviewer) and Erick Stoll (camera operator) with additional camera work from Kasey Hosp.

We apologize for the poor sound quality and shortage of sunlight, the event was held late and music --this was something of a Tea Party Woodstock--was playing throughout.

President Obama Cut Taxes for 98 Percent of Working Americans in 2009, from the non-partisan Citizens for Tax Justice: http://bit.ly/cyWy8T

2. If you don't see this..
..you are going to miss the lady claiming that Obama will outlaw fishing.

Might be good for forehead and table to skip that though.

6. From the youtube comments:
An idiot, dolt, or dullard is a mentally deficient person, or someone who acts in a self-defeating or significantly counterproductive way. More humorous synonyms of the term include addlehead, blockhead, bonehead, deadhead, dimwit, dodo, dope, dummy, dunderhead, nincompoop, ninny, nitwit, numbskull, stupidhead, thickhead, and twit, among many others

8. How do have a reasoned argument with people when their arguments are based on emotion and fear, not
reason and facts?

11. He forgot to ask them if they would be in favor of getting rid of the Dept. of Defense.
They would probably react the same way as a crack addict having their pipe taken away.

14. Those Teabaggers are looking for a king or a dictator. They
want to do away with our Constitutional government, get rid of all agencies, EPA, IRS, Medicare, Dept.of Education and all the rest that this country has set up to better our lives. That leaves room only for a king or a dictator. SOBs are really clueless and above all ignorant. Really the government should make education manditory with a good dose of history.
By the way what is that guy from the British aristocracy doing at the big meet?

13. Glenn Beck is educational!
Gee wiz! If you want to learn about Czars be sure to tune in to Glenn Beck. He is an expert in Czars.

:sarcasm:

CNN are a bunch of pigs? Well, I know Eric Erickson is but I wasn't aware that the rest were. Liars maybe, pigs, I don't know.

Did you ever see such a bunch of misinformed people in your life? It is as if their heads had been unscrewed and their brains dipped out. Horrible. They are so ignorant that they don't even suspect their own deep state of ignorance.

17. Do you think these morons are capable of filling out a voter registration form . . .
Or finding a polling place on election day?

Their unimpaired handlers are going to have to provide buses and guides across the entire country.

19. Thank Jeebus the wealthiest Americans have useful idiots like these folks
to stick up for them. Otherwise they would have NO voice in the government! How do people expect the wealthy to buy a congress critter and a judge or two if they have to pay their share of taxes???

Wow. The ignorance was astounding. Obama is going to outlaw fishing????

:hurts:

21. Chase Whiteside is the shit.
You should have seen him in a Sarah Palin book signing video . . . He doesn't even do "gotcha" questions, he just lets these brain surgeons hang themselves with their own comments. The stuttering, the idiot fact-void answers, the amazingly apocalyptic predictions, the awkward pauses . . . it's just astonishing these people can walk erect. Really.

And Victoria Jackson is SUCH an ass-dumb fucking nutbar. God DAMN, lady, please get a fucking brain or something. The Cold War ended 21 years ago and you're still trudging the Red Menace chestnuts out. I'm SO glad they give her a microphone, though. How does that saying go . . . "better to be silent and thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt"?

23. One word: SCARY
I have to say that this video is disturbing on so many levels. The ignorance is upsetting. I could not have held a straight face or bit my lip like this guy did. My head was spinning as I watched this. The fact that these people really believe the stuff they are saying is INSANE. The simple fact that they really don't know what they believe is even worse. None of them could put a sane thought together at all. They didn't really know what they were doing or why they were really there. Things like "lower taxes" or "no taxes" or "commie in the white house" or "do away with department of education" are just some of the most INSANE things I have ever heard and more so that they really don't even believe that...once challenged they couldn't give an actual reason why we shouldn't have these things. Again, SCARY.
