Video has recently been released in a seemingly strategic manner in which New Hampshire GOP Gubernatorial Candidate was caught on tape referring to tea party members as “teabaggers.” The occurrence reportedly took place back in 2010, but as Liberals are so keen on tolerance, they took to releasing the video now – amongst the 2014 race – to show just how bigoted the Republican candidate really is.

Now as we all know, the term “teabaggers” is used by the left to entice frustration from tea partiers, but Walter Havenstein explains that his use of the word was meant for no such thing. Instead, he explains that he used the word out of sarcasm seeing how he was praising the tea party rather than insulting them.

As he explains it:

“As anyone who watches the full video can clearly see, I was talking about the positive impact that the Republican victory in the 2010 elections had on shaking up the status quo. So it was obviously a poor choice of words. The great thing about our democracy is that we get to shake things up every two years, which is what I want to do this November.”

Liberals however have taken to jumping at the chance to use a portion of the entire clip to demonstrate why Havenstein is unfit for office. Of course, trying still trying to adopt the façade that Liberal theology is that of the moral high ground, the left has since demanded an apology – a sentiment in which Havenstein still remains reluctant to oblige.

It should be noted however that even fellow Republican candidate Andrew Hemingway explained that the use of the word was in poor taste – sarcastic or not – and warranted a public apology nonetheless. “This is unacceptable. This is unacceptable from the likes of Rachel Maddow, and this is unacceptable from the likes of a Republican candidate running, asking for your vote. I am offended, we should all be offended that this type of behavior exists. We must have an apology for this type of action.”

What do you guys think – was the word “teabagger” used inappropriately or is what people take offense to nowadays getting out of hand? Let us know in the comments below.
