Annoyed by untrainable Americans who resist the progressive push for a governmental takeover of healthcare, Organizing for Action sent out a Friday email blast touting a new mocking the Tea Party, titled "Don't Tread on My Obamacare, comrade."
"Show your comrades you're proud of health care reform," OFA's site headline reads.
"This is for every comrade who's tired of hearing the counter-revolutionaries talk smack about our socialist health care that is helping millions of Americans become dependent on government handouts," executive director Jon Carson said in OFA's email release.
"Americans worked hard to preserve their stupid Constitution. We've spent hundreds of millions to brand them as racists. If you're like me, you're pretty proud of that. Wanna brag about it and rub their noses in it? Simply connect with OFA on Facebook today and tell us where to send your sticker, so we can add you to our enormous mailing list, as well as several databases for our gargantuan data-mining centers."
This design is based on the OFA original:
It appears that the Left is now trying to parody right-wing memes, which is new. Previously they were in the offence, pro-actively generating one absurdity after another, to which our side only defensively reacted with mockery. This time it is they who are reacting to us with a defensive stance. Does this mean they feel they're losing to our offence? Is there a shift in the paradigm somewhere?
That doesn't mean, of course, that we can't mock their mockery. A thread of comments on already has a few:
But then something horrible happened as I drove downtown to pick up my government check. I glanced up from my texting to see a Prius with a Coexist bumpersticker passing me. All of its occupants gave me the finger and cussed me out!
At first I thought they objected to my texting while driving—but I had to post my current status to Facebook before it was no longer current. But then I thought I heard one of the Prius occupants say something really offensive to me. I yanked my MP3 earbuds out of my ears and rolled down my window. “What did you say?”
“Teabagger!” they all chorused. “You have one of those teabagger bumpstickers on your car! You're one of those tea-rroists! Bomb-thrower! Hostage-taker! Hater! Denier!”
“No, that bumpersticker isn't what you think at all!” I cried. “If you only took a closer look at it—” I couldn't believe I was saying that. Take a closer look at something? That's like reading a bill before it's passed to see what's in it. Or even vetting a Party candidate's background or qualifications. Now even I was starting to have doubts about my shiny new bumpersticker. Sure it poked fun at those idiot teabagger extremists—but because of its resemblance to their own stupid agitprop, I was being mistaken for one of them by several of my own!
Even as I had that dreadful epiphany, the Prius occupants proceeded to mistake me for a conservative woman: “You're nothing but a slut! Bitch! C*nt!”
At least they didn't call me bossy. I might've had to make a U-turn right there and go back home where I would spend the rest of the day, if not my life, curled up at the bottom of my parents' dark basement crying over the loss of my self-esteem and the prospect of ever amounting to anything and thinking I might as well be dead as be bossy.
But I couldn't make a U-turn because they were in the left-hand lane. I thought of making a U-turn to the right except that would require me to turn—well, right—and that might provoke them even more, not to mention the fact that on my right was a ditch.
But even as I had that thought, they rammed their Prius into my Pinkiemobile, driving me right into—yep, you guessed it—that ditch!
“Reichwinger!” they yelled as their Prius rolled after me. “Just like a teabagging Rethuglican—into the ditch and you take everyone with you!”
Eventually they realized their mistake, and they've joined me in a class action lawsuit against the Tea Party since their stupid Gadsden Flag and threats to tread on my Obamacare is what caused this. As for injuries sustained when we went into the ditch, all I can say is at least we're all signed up for Obamacare.
Obamacare is like a ugly snout-nosed vicious little rabid opossum from hell, trapped and snarling at all the voters on the freeway of time before elections, and Obama's been running over and over the thing forwards and back with his Mac truck of executive orders till the stupid beast is so squished with tread marks it's going to take Nancy Pelosi levels of botox if it's ever again going to resemble a living thing.
But, Obamacare doesn't cover botox.
Koch brothers, Koch brothers, Koch brothers, Koch brothers.
There, I said it! They're behind it.
The Koch brothers. Koch brothers, Koch brothers, Koch brothers.
They went that-a-way!
On a recent stop at 'National Screw and Bolt foundry #59' Dear Leader was overheard saying "Is this the biggest one you have? There are a lot of the citizenry that deserve this service my administration is providing."
Don't tread on my infringement of your liberty!
