The Teabusters: The humble beginning of an anti-teaparty movement
Although Facebook is rarely, if ever, an instrument of social change, what may be the humble beginnings of a grassroots Anti-teaparty movement has sprung up on Facebook. The group, which calls themselves "The Teabusters" (click here for facebook page) describes itself in the following way:
Are you tired of the "Tea Party" protesters?
Are you tired of President Obama being called a Nazi, a Socialist, a Communist, or even an illegal Kenyan alien because he wants to fix the economy and provide all Americans with adequate health care?
Are you tired of suggestions that President Obama wants to euthanize your grandparents, bureaucratize your health care, and ruin your life?
If so, join the anti-teaparty movement: The Teabusters!
Furthermore, the Teabusters compare the Tea Party protesters to the Mad Hatter and March Hare from Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland. The Teabusters also have the beginnings of an as of yet undeveloped website: www.teabusters.com
