DC Trawler

‘Thanks, Tea-Tards’: Why does Organizing For Action hate the mentally challenged?

(OFA Update: An OFA spokesman has asked the Daily Caller to change this headline. Duly noted.)

(OFA Update 2: A statement from OFA: “We neither support nor approve of the inappropriate language used in a sign on the mall today. OFA believes that John Boehner should stand up to the extreme wing in his party, pay their bills and end this now.” Whereas I believe that Obama could end this shutdown with the stroke of a pen. Only one of us is right, and it ain’t the flack for King Barry the First. Also, see Rules for Radicals #4, #5, #8, and #13. Not nearly as much fun when they get turned around on you, huh?)

If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the past week, it’s that the behavior of one guy at a protest reflects the group as a whole. For example, one guy was carrying around a Confederate flag at the Million Vet March in DC this weekend, which means all veterans are racists or something. (Or Uncle Toms, I guess, depending.)

Okay, okay, not all veterans. Just the ones who want to visit the war memorials that Obama has barricaded because he’s not getting his way.

Anyway, based on that standard, the following young fellow represents all OFA volunteers. Courtesy of Charlie Spiering at the Washington Examiner, here’s a look at OFA’s “Budget Shutdown Day of Action Event” in front of the Capitol Building today:


And Politico’s Reid J. Epstein also spotted the clever youngster:


Here’s a wider shot of the protest:


Clearly, America is fed up with those damn Republicans.

Hmmmm, I don’t see the “THANKS TEA-TARDS” guy anywhere, though. Perhaps he ducked out to touch up his antiperspirant. Does Obamacare cover that? If not, why not?

Update: This fellow is claiming to be the one with the sign.


Ooooh, a false flag operation? Or just an OFA idiot covering his tracks? Stay tuned!

Update: Dang it, Burge…


Update: Question, and answer.




Update: I don’t think I can do that, Mr. Searcy, but that’s pretty much my opinion as well.
