5. HAven't the red states always taken more out than they put in - thereby
robbing the blue states? At least the graphic acknowledges it finally

49. Jesus! Can't they get anything right?!
That graphic gets more puzzling the longer you look at it. Who's the good guy? The one with the money or the one with the gun? And how does a man holding a bag of money with another man pointing a gun to his head equals socialism?

And the graphic reminds me of the movie Idiocracy! In the hospital scene where the receptionist has to press a graphic of what's wrong with the guy.

3. Anyone with a bit of education
knows that socialism isn't what is being shown in the graphic. I wonder how many of the teabaggers would be willing to forgo Social Security, Medicare, veteran's benefits, etc?

There is no chance in *ell that I will ever get to collect 26 years and counting worth of double payments. I would love to stop paying right now!

11. It's the same pretzel logic that says...
The world hates Obama, as evidenced by the cheering throng wherever he goes.

And there were WMD in Iraq... and we'd be wetting ourselves if Bush and Cheney hadn't kept the bad guys from hurting us again... and that birth certificate thing is still going...

Weirdness.

sent them the website, and told them to investigate. That graphic is all telling, just like the NY Post with the cartoon depiction of the chimpanzee, can't play these things down. RW hate groups are on the rise.

They are going to have a fucking handful with me. I can guarantee it. I'm going to raise hell about their blatant incitement to commit violence.

If they feel so strongly about it, they can try it with me. they'll be fucking with the wrong hippie. :smoke:

35. That's only one of the two panels
That image is half the original -- here is a link to the original:



It's simply illustrating the stereotype of "socialism" alongside the stereotype of "capitalism."

To read anything more into it is Free-Republic-like.

37. Do you even understand the image?
How is it promoting violence?

Stereotype 1: Socialism = the ones without the money forcibly take from the ones with the money.

Stereotype 2: Capitalism = the ones with the money forcibly take from the ones without the money.

If you're reading something else, you're no better than a freeper -- seriously.

42. ding ding ding! we have a winner
The first person in this thread that gets it. I first saw the capitalism image on a lefty site a while back.

I don't recall any mass outrage by the right thinking it was anything other than symbolism.

I have never seen such knee jerk foolishness since someone was surprised that fire melts steel.

50. Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar
Do you really think the application in this case is that sophisticated?

Look who you are dealing with here; people who do not know what "teabagging" means. Morans. Socialests.

They used half the picture--out of context--the half that 30% probably believe accurately depicts socialism and the Obama administration's imminent implementation thereof. But they couldn't even make the colors right to fit their stereotype.

Pointing a gun at anyone's head, and then using it as some sort of symbolism, is just wrong. I don't give a flying rat's ass who is doing the pointing or the posting... advocating shooting another human being is fucking mentally ill.

41. Curiously, they always seem sure to mention free parking
possibilities for potential attendees at the various sites, which are held in public spaces, maintained by city workers, guarded by city police, connected by federal highways, advertised and coordinated on the public airways and the DARPA developed internet. And they'll arrive in fairly safe cars, wearing their seat-belts I hope. What kind of colonial-radical horseshit is that?
