    Since the stated goals of at least some tea partiers was to tea bag others, for whatever reasons, they are essentially taking on the role of teabagger.

    Thus, the term was simply applied to them based on their own claims about the behaviors they were engaging in.

    It is not an insult as long as they do not let it be an insult. If they stayed the course, and embraced the name, saying they are teabagging Washington one liberal mouth at a time, the negative connotations would never have occurred.

    It is not inherently wrong to be a teabagger. It's the best way on the planet to have one's nuts sucked on.

    The tea partiers really do have no one to blame but themselves for the name being used as an insult. The people have to take offense. They cannot be given it. It's an active decision on their part to get insulted over a name was basically accurately applied given their own description of their purported actions.

    If they choose not to embrace it, even after implying that it was accurate to apply it, it is their own fault.









    By this logic, I shall be refering to all liberals from now on as "anti-American troop killers"....



    One sign, do we label entire demographics off the actions of a select few?

    No I wouldn't, the fact that you have no class has no bearing on whether I have class or not.

    Um you called me a libtard and many other names here over the years. Forgive me if I (and the rest of the forum members here) don't believe you.

    I'm for it too, unfortunately no politicians are... not even Sarah Palin.

    Oh I'm not threatend by it, it's just a fad. I'll be surprised if the movement is even around in 2012. The media might get bored and go with something else. Or Obama and Congress might actually succeed with something by then and even the Tea Partiers (notice how I've quit with the slur? awhile ago in fact) will have realized that, despite all the kicking and screaming they did, it all worked out in the end.

    That's disingenuous, the tea party is an offshoot of conservative, not all of conservatism.

    What you are showing is an offshoot of liberalism. If you want to label those within that offshoot as anti-American troop killers, feel free. Those people pictured have purposely associated themselves with that label, and the label is warranted. But labelling all liberals as anti-American troop killers is disingenuous, because not all liberals are associating themselves with those concepts.

    However, since the tea partiers have purposely associated themselves with tea bags from the very start, they have embraced this association. The application of the term teabagger is fully warranted because of this.

    However, calling all conservatives teabaggers is unwarranted, as not all conservatives have associated themselves with these groups.

    Well your can but you have to prove that this was at a liberal rally and the sign was made by a liberal organization.

    Logically, you could only label that specific liberal organization as such, not all liberals.

    And if they have associated themselves with these groups, then they ARE teabaggers. Nice.

    Big deal. I would think that people making a stand wouldn't be such pussies about name-calling and would instead ignore the asinine attempts to insult them.

    This is a lie.

    adding a little PDS to your obnoxious style?
