American Spectator Defends the Term “Tea Bagging” as Innocent Outrage

J. Peter Freire’s had enough of the criticisms amounting against the movement. After all, a lot of meanies from the left have been bashing Tea Bagging because of what it really means. Luckily, a small group of blokes are apparently ready to redefine it to mean “a hate of taxation without representation” or “standing up against pork spending.”

You see, the protesters are idiots for referring to a historically recognizable protest, because it could easily be mistaken for the Urban Dictionary no-no word describing a lewd sexual act. But when Shuster and his chums at HuffPo gurgle the word themselves, it’s because they’re being meta.In a race to the bottom, Shuster and Co are tunneling.

Later in his post, Freire goes after claims that Tea Baggers are receiving financial help:

Well, as the lead organizer of the February 27th Washington tea party event, I’ll happily tell you that I got no such support. None. Nada. Zilch. The support we got from Fox News? Does that mean coverage?

Clearly one man’s statement  on American Spectator completely rebukes all arguments to the contrary. The Tea Bagging movement is not only a brand new term, but it is completely grass roots.
