Meet Timothy L. Davis, a bottom-feeder fringe nutter in the world of teabaggers.
Yet another in a long line of fame-minded opportunists who are convinced that society is on the cusp of another southern secession, he fancies himself at the vanguard of a murky, ill-defined populist uprising.
Like other political opportunists who have come before him, he too has a poorly defined plan to overthrow the evil commie/nazi dictatorship– but his master plan to take over the world will succeed where one hundred percent of all previous attempts have crashed and burned!
You see, his master plan is–wait for it– to lay siege to federal offices!
He and his cohorts plan to stage a rally in DC on January 21st where they will announce their intention to besiege the offices of their representatives until “Obamacare is repealed, the federal reserve is audited and ended and our rights are recognized by every government agency.”
That probably sounded better than the original slogan of “We’re angry teabaggers who missed our chance at the limelight last year when people wanted to listen to our racist bullshit.” To be honest, the latter was a lot less nebulous than the one you decided on, man.
It’s quite clear Timothy is an amateur at this game. He plasters his name all over the whole operation, he links to the two teabagger sites he writes for (WashingtonRebel and Teaparty Editor), as well as his personal site, which he registered with his full name, address and telephone number. If you’re so worried about being crushed by the imaginary “iron fist of communism”, maybe you shouldn’t link your master plan to your real name and the site where you advertise the novels you wrote wherein you romanticize the defeated South.
The teabagger movement is not only dead in the water, it’s starting to smell.
Really, teabaggers, this the best you could come up with– a fantastically unpublished old-west writer who is desperately trying to convince the world that he’s not ripping off the hippie tactic of sit-ins (it’s not a sit-in! Hippies have sit-ins! It’s a SIEGE! MEN have SIEGES!) with the notion that this will be what gets health care reform wholly repealed? THIS is IT? To be honest, we wouldn’t have even noticed this if it wasn’t given a nod of endorsement by our other favorite would-be revolutionaries (and FBI honeypots), Restore The Constitution. When the militia psychos start talking about laying siege to federal buildings, a wildly entertaining spectacle is sure to follow.
