I posted this on some guy’s blog, he was talking about boycotting tea to hurt an already hurting industry in a time of recession to protest against… the other guy getting more votes than their guy.
I was pissed, and wrote:
What a pathetic bunch of wimpering babies.
The boston tea party was a rebellion against taxation without representation, against having a KING who they didn’t vote for.
You are pretending to have the same righteous cause when you’re complaining about exactly the opposite. You’re pissed off that the other guy got elected instead of your republican regime being in power forever. You’re pissed off that the democracy the ACTUAL tea party protesters were fighting for WORKED AS IT SHOULD.
Yes, boo fucking hoo. Go protest taxation WITH representation you bunch of babies with no grasp of history.
