    Funny...

    Here's pictures from the Tea Party in Chicago:

    BREAKING! Chicago Tax Day Tea Party Pictures! : Founding Bloggers

    I think I saw the back of one head that appeared to be non-white.

    And I saw a lot of signs about Socialism; and depicting Obama in less than respectful ways.

    So, what's not accurate about Marvel's depiction?

    But to counter that we have Nightcrawler and the Archangel representing the Religious Right.

    Actually, Nightcrawler is German, so he's probably a Christian Democrat, while Archangel is called so only because he has wings. He's actually the son of a wealthy industrialist, so he's probably more of a fiscal conservative than a religious conservative.

    1. Marvel did not not depict any teabaggers wearing wolf t-shirts.

    2. The protesters in Marvel's depiction are much too thin.

    "Issue 602 of the comic features Captain America investigating a right-wing anti-government militia group called "the Watchdogs". Hoping to infiltrate the group, Captain America and his African-American sidekick The Falcon observe an anti-tax protest from a rooftop. The protestors depicted are all white and carry signs adorned with slogans almost identical to those seen today in Tea Party rallies like "tea bag libs before they tea bag you" and "stop the socialists."

    I don't think Marvel should apologize. The Tea-Baggers are a tough bunch right? They can take it. Oh wait, they can't? Figures.
    I don't think Marvel should HAVE to apologize, and I think its ridiculous anyone in any movement feels like they should. Not because I think the Tea Parties should be "tougher", but because its their right to depict it however they want. They're an entertainment venue that is a private company and its not depicting anyone in particular. However I think its probably a smart business move to do so, since unlike depicting Nazi's as big giant villians, depicting an entire movement common in the US as extremist lunatics is likely not good for sales.

    I think that if your stupid enough to call yourself a 'Tea-Bagger', you deserve it.
    I will ask you as I have asked others, all of which unable to produce something yet.

    Can you find an example of official Tea Party documentation (A website, news letter, etc) or significant tea party organizer or even a large group of Tea Parties that have called themselves "Tea-Baggers".

    Every bit of research I've done on the subject has found the only people actually LABELING them as such started with liberal commentators doing so.

    You made the accusation, please, back it up.

    Well, your use of a ridiculous childish school yard term like "libtard" when attempting to engage in legitimate discussion on what attempts to be an actually adult, civil, reasonable board certainly brings the second point into question for you in this thread at the very least.
