Wingnut Warning! ACORN’s Coming to Getcha

Wingnut Warning! (Pay attention, Sheapenny). Hot rumor on the right: members of the Association of Community Organizations for Reform (ACORN) will be stalking next week’s Tea Party protests, collecting intel on the people who show up. One e-mail that’s been making the rounds:

TEA PARTY CAUTION! DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING – FROM ANYONE – AT ANY TEA PARTY ANYWHERE IN THE USA —- NO EXCEPTIONS! Federally-funded ACORN operators will be at all Tea Parties to get signatures which they will give to Obama stating that the signatures are in support of his policies or to get the names of people who oppose his policies and report dissention.

NO MATTER WHAT, DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING! IF YOU HAVE FRIENDS WHO PLAN TO ATTEND, WHO DO NOT HAVE EMAIL, GET ON THE PHONE TO WARN THEM.  TRY TO CALL OR EMAIL RADIO TALK SHOWS AND LET THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG.

   PASS IT ON!

As David Waldman at Daily Kos (h/t for the graphic too) said:

Yes, wingnut paranoia has jumped itself as it was already preparing to jump the shark. In their rush to outsmart the nonexistent, double-secret double agents (also!), the teabagging nutters are now warning one another not to fall for any dirty tricks like sharing basic contact information with one another, lest they be unwittingly included in petitions supporting administration positions, or (in their fevered dreams) be reported as dissidents!

Let me just state here and now that I wish I had thought of this myself. What could be better than watching wingnuts deny themselves the most basic of organizing tools purely out of their own paranoia?

This will doubtless be a crushing blow to actual organizers who were planning to mine these teabagging parties for signatures on petitions that actual teabaggers would actually support. But hey, you can't be too careful these days!

NB: There will be no "acorns" at the Tea Party; the only "nuts" in attendance will be of the "wingnut" variety.

    President Obama just gave 95% of American taxpayers the largest middle-class tax cut in history. The only people who will be paying more in taxes are in the uber-rich top 5% of income earners, those who shield their income from taxes in off-shore tax-dodger havens like UBS bank in Switzerland or the Caymen Islands. It’s a safe bet that you are not in the top 5% of income earners, Sheapenny, you ungrateful wretch.

    And my distant relatives fought for American independence from Britain – their motivation was not about not wanting to pay taxes, it was about liberty and independence you moron – so f#@k off!

  2. Glad you were not around for the Boston Tea Party because we would still be a over taxed English Colony!

    Why not ask our President of Kenyan decent if he wants us to all be prirates like his fathers Kenyan brothers are?

    Seems like Pirates get more respect with you guys than the American OVER TAXED taxpayer??

  3. We’re sending ACORN? Really?

    I thought the plan was to send Fred Phelps & the Westboro Baptist Church protesters.

    I guess I got the wrong memo.

  4. I am going to the teaparty where I am at. My only question is whether my sign is going to be in support of usury or offshore tax havens. I am conflicted as to which would get me more high-fives from the hardcore ‘baggers.

  5. I received a robocall yesterday. A couple of incomplete sentences about having a Tea Party. There seemed no real message either pro or con. Unless they were talking in code.
