Teabaggers Subliminal Death Message

Sep 12, 2009 - Washington, District of Columbia, USA - Activists with the conservative advocacy group The Tea Party Express marched to the U.S. Capitol Saturday to protest health care reform, higher taxes and what they see as out-of-control government spending.  The group began its tour in Sacramento, California, making its way across the country, hosting rallies in about 30 cities. Washington is the final destination (Newscom TagID: zumawireworldphotostwo556035)     [Photo via Newscom]

The wingnuts don’t consistently merge health care reform with Obama’s name just because it’s catchy.

The most chilling and sickest thing about the Teabaggers strategy is the way their exploitation of death symbolism, merged with their hatred of the President, cross-fertilizing a “death to/of Obama” suggestion.
