  • Bleg for Logo: “Proud to be a Tea Party Son of a Bitch”

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on September 6th, 2011 (All posts by )

    This little episode really does cry out for a t-shirt, bumper sticker, what have you.

    The above phrase may be a good way to embrace the insult and turn it against its originators.

    Other ideas are also possible.

    Anyone got any ideas? I will post any good ones I receive.

    UPDATE: This is just OK. There should be more options.

      It may have been Shannon Love on these pages that said that constant and consistent mockery was one of the best ways to fight these imbeciles and I am beginning to think he was correct.

    2. Lexington Green Says:

      Shannon may have said that. I have said the same or similar things. It really is the best way to deal with stupidity. Treat it like stupidity.

      I was thinking of the opening scene from Patton where George C Scott is giving the speech praising and extolling his men to run roughshod over Hitler.

      “All right now, you sons of bitches”, Go out there! Do you think that’s what Hoffa meant?

    4. Sgt. Mom Says:

      Well then, on behalf of the distaff side, I’d like something that says, “Proud to be a Tea Party B*tch!”

      The Tea Party is ridiculous. A celebration of mediocrity as a purpose. They are amusing and often funny.

      The union reaction to so much abuse from the right is understandable but they join the Tea Party in the stupid race to who knows where.

      This sounds like a job for …!

      To hand in the closet beside last weeks t-shirt “Proud T-Party Terrorist! (thanks Joe Biden!)”. I can’t afford to buy all these shirts, and there;’s not enough time to wear them…

      I tend to make my own custom T-shirts [bless, computer printers!] and my version will have “Proud TEA Party Patriot SOB” above the Gadsden. And below I’ve added the old phrase, “I’m your huckleberry!“. For those who are not familiar with the phrase, from the Urban Dictionary:

      19th century slang which was popularized more recently by the movie Tombstone. Means “I’m the man you’re looking for”. Nowdays it’s usually used as a response to a threat or challenge, as in the movie.
      “Who thinks they can beat me?”
      “I’m your huckleberry.”

      Any attempt by the Unions to kill TEA Party members may have drawbacks that they had not anticipated.

      I imagine the King’s minions thought the original Tea Partiers were SOB’s as well. Personally, I think that puts us in pretty good company.

      OK, let’s try that again.

    13. Lexington Green Says:

      ErisGuy, the links are not working, pal. Try again. I want to see it.
