Then explain exactly what you think this means:

Tea Bag the Fools in D.C.
OK, I can sort of understand this one... they were going to send tea bags to the white house...

Quote:
Tea Bag the Liberal Dems Before They Tea Bag You.

but this one? I don't really think they expected to send tea bags to all the liberal dems, nor do I think they expected the liberal dems to send them one. Therefore this sign must have a different meaning.

This was the sign the author referred to in the article I posted:



Note the freerepublic.com on the sign. The sign was displayed at a protest *before* Anderson Cooper used the term. What exactly do you think this sign was intended to mean? I mean, here's the sign again in an article dated 02/27/09.

Coopers comment was made on 04/15/09.

Here's are some comments made on freerepublic.com before the protest, and before Cooper's comment (remember what was on the sign?):

Barney Fwand would probably enjoy getting teabagged.

He's referring to Barney Frank, the gay Democratic senator. Similar comment, same page, different author.

The private part of the official Barney “banking queen” Frank teabagging hosted by B Hussein Obama will take place at a place to be determined by Mr Frank when he can find a suitable place....preferably in a rented space of his home

You can't say they weren't warned:

Note that his aired after the sign displayed at the protest, but before Cooper's comment.
