Teabaggers get punk’d

Pretty amusing video of an anti-immigration tea party in Minneapolis, where a prankster succeeds in getting the crowd to cheer the deportation of European immigrants. I especially enjoy the enthusiastic changing of “Columbus, go home!”

What a bunch of maroons.

    I can’t hear the audio (no sound card on this computer), but the face on the lady in the background with the “Stop Illegal Immigartion” T-shirt is priceless. She seems to be thinking:

    “Something is wrong here, but I just can’t quite put my finger on it….”

    Troll @ 7,

    If by “teaching” you mean “evoking” and “think” you mean “laugh”, then you are correct.

    “thank you”

    “…the nation getting punked”

    Wait. What? Wouldn’t that be a web site that is getting punked?

    “We report what the recipients submit to us,” said Ed Pound, Communications Director for the Board.

    Pound told ABC News the board receives declarations from the recipients – state governments, federal agencies and universities – of stimulus money about what program is being funded.

    “Some recipients clearly don’t know what congressional district they live in, so they appear to be just throwing in any number.

    Since one of my grandmothers was half native american (altho, I doubt she ever stepped foot on a reservation and at the time of her birth her fathers genotype was a source of family embarrassment) does that mean I get to stay?

    I saw some of the other footage of this rally. It looked like there was about 20 people there and maybe 10 counter protesters.

    Some rally!

    There’s a video of one older tea bagger with an NRA hat shouting “Fuck you. Fuck you. Fuck you” in the face of one of the counter protesters.

    These people are going to come unhinged and one of them will turn into a Timothy McVeigh.
