Danville Teabaggers to Burn in Effigy ‘Treasonous Witch Pelosi’ and ‘Turn Coat Traitor’ Rep Perriello

November 13, 2009

(ChattahBox)—The Danville TEA Party group in Virginia is planning a fun family get together this Saturday where it plans to burn Congressional lawmakers in effigy to protest the passage in the House, of the historic health care reform bill H.R. 3962. The teabagger group will hold a “Fired Up for Freedom” rally in Blairs, VA and end it by setting to fire, images of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Rep. Tom Perriello (D-VA).

Danville TEA Party Chairman Nigel Coleman claims that the group does not have a member in Congress who represents their beliefs. “We were outraged to find that Tom Perriello had voted in favor of this bill. I was with dozens of 5th District voters in his office two days before the vote and we pleaded with him to stand with us against the Pelosi plan,” said Coleman. “At this point we feel we have no representation in Congress,” added Coleman.

The Danville TEA Party website is filled with extremism that includes attacks on Speaker Pelosi, as a “treasonous witch,” refers to Rep. Perriello as a “turn coat traitor” and President Obama as Hitler.

Many of the posts on the site are nonsensical rants. Member Patty Dumpling says on the site, “Obama is a Goebbels puppet and the czars are pulling the strings.” Ms. Dumpling also bizarrely accuses president Obama of cancelling the TV show Arrested Development. “One of the most heinous acts ever perpetrated on American soil was done at the behest of PRESIDENT HITLER HIMSELF. I know because my neighbor is related to Jason Bateman,” wrote Dumpling.

The Danville TEA Party supports the “tenther” movement, which falsely believes that health care reform is unconstitutional. A post on the site by member Elmer Woodard entitled, “The crux of it is treason” seems to espouse the group’s beliefs that President Obama has plans to take away their freedom with health care reform. Woodard seems particularly worried that Obama may deprive him of his rights to spend money on anti-Obama signs, Cold Stone Creamery ice cream, and ammunition for his guns:

“Obamacare is NOT about health care. It is about whether Congress can tell an individual what he can spend his money on. If Congress can tell us what we must spend our money on, then they can tell us what we may NOT spend our money on, such as anti-Obama signs, Cold Stone Creamery, and ammunition. Obamacare is at its heart an invidious attempt to overthrow the Constitution by allowing the government, for the first time, to regulate the individual.”

When a few members of the group met with Perriello on Nov. 5 during Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) anti-health care rally on the steps of the Capitol, they frequently talked over their representative.

One woman said she had no health insurance, but when she needs health care she pays for it herself. And she objects to paying for other’s health services. When Perriello tried to explain to the group that they already are paying for other’s health care in higher premiums, they didn’t want to hear it.

    Let me be uncommonly clear:

    * You can file a complaint for TREASON by yourself.

    * You don’t need an attorney. You don’t need anybody.

    * You don’t have to give anyone a dime.

    * You don’t have to buy a book.

    * You can file a criminal complaint for TREASON out of pocket for next to nothing.

    * You don’t have to join a group to file the complaint.

    * You don’t have to leave your office or home. The mail box is out front.

    * You don’t have to sign a meaningless petition.

    * You can file a criminal complaint in addition to anything else you’re doing to fight back.

    * You can then use the word “I” in the sentences that read like this: I filed a criminal complaint naming OBAMA in commission of TREASON. I urge you to do the same!

    * Or this sentence: OBAMA IS MY SWORN ENEMY! MAKE HIM YOURS!

    Top three here:


    May God be with us all,

    Burning people in effigy, is akin to black magic, and is known as Image Magick. These so called Christians, republicans, and revolutionaries are letting us know when they are in charge, that they will not stop violence but encourage it. That they will not seek peace but encourage mob action. Burning a Treasonous Witch is akin to burning the person, and it is only a step away from committing a murder. Did we learn nothing from Salem.

    wow. These people are the most rude and obnoxious bunch I have ever seen. Didn’t they go to kindergarten and learn about speaking in turn? If they didn’t get answers to all their questions, its because they couldn’t shut their pie holes long enough. But they don’t really want answers, or information, or increased knowledge about complicated issues. They are unhappy miserable people and they take every opportunity to scream at others because it makes them feel better.

    I feel the reason behind most of our troubles and the need for TEA Parties is the government’s ability to print up whatever money it wants to manipulate us.

    Maybe this will help make the danger of fiat money clear.

    Imagine you and me are setting across from each other. We create enough money to represent all of the world’s wealth. Each one of us has one SUPER Dollar in front of him.

    You own half of everything and so do I.

    I’m the government though. I get bribed into creating a Central Bank.

    You’re not doing what I want you to be doing so I print up myself eight more SUPER Dollars to manipulate you with.

    All of a sudden your SUPER Dollar only represents one tenth of the wealth of the world!

    That isn’t the only thing though. You need to get busy and get to work because YOU’VE BEEN STIFFED with the bill for the money I PRINTED UP to get YOU TO DO what I WANTED.

    That to me represents what has been happening to the economy, and us, and why so many of our occupations just can’t keep up with the fake money presses.

    They have been beating us with our own stick!!!!1
