Teabaggers to ‘Storm Senate’ and Drop Dead for Liberty

December 10, 2009

(ChattahBox)—Dick Armey’s Tea Party Patriots are planning a crazy Randall-Terryesque stunt on December 15, to storm Senate offices to protest the “government takeover of health care.” The so called, Patriots created by Armey’s astroturf organization FreedomWorks, plan to act out skits depicting patients dropping dead from waiting in line “for treatment in government controlled medical facilities.” The deluded teabaggers must be protesting government run Medicare. Perhaps they haven’t heard: the public option is dead.

The group’s website displays the headline: “Tea Party Patriots to Storm Senate Offices.” “It is time, once again, to flex our muscle and exert that influence to hold the line in our fight against the government takeover of healthcare,” says the announcement.

The Tea Party Patriots urged supporters to make the sacrifice to travel to Washington, DC “right before Christmas,” to “protect our liberty” from being snatched away by “a government run health care bill.” It’s not clear how the reform of our broken health care system, that leads to the death of nearly 50,000 Americans every year from the lack of health insurance, would deprive the teabaggers of their liberty.

The Tea Party Patriots named their protest “Government Waiting Rooms” and the aspiring thespians in the group are asked to drop dead for liberty:

“So here’s the plan. On Tuesday, December 15 at 8:45 AM thousands of us will meet in Washington, DC at the fountain in Upper Senate Park. From there we will march to the Senate offices, go inside, and demonstrate our opposition to the government takeover of health care. We call this plan “Government Waiting Rooms”. The intention is to go inside the Senate offices and hallways, and play out the role of patients waiting for treatment in government controlled medical facilities. As the day goes on some of us will pretend to die from our untreated illnesses and collapse on the floor. Many of us plan to stay there until they force us to leave. A backup location for this demonstration will be announced if they block us from entering the offices.”

This should be interesting. Let’s hope these teabaggers on Medicare don’t break a hip when they are dropping dead for liberty.

    Will they really drop dead? That would be good.
