Earlier today we reported on a NH Republican gubernatorial candidate who referred to tea party members as “teabaggers” back in 2010 sending Liberals into a “tolerance” firestorm over the matter. Most recently however, Joe Biden also referred to members of the tea party as “teabaggers” yet the mainstream media has been silent thus far.
I still choose to believe there’s no political bias in the news – it’s just easier that way.
According to CNN’s John Walsh, he had a little sit down with Biden to talk about the stalled gun-control issues on Capitol Hill where Biden (of course) decided to point his finger at those pesky “teabaggers.” According to Walsh:
“I said to Joe Biden, ‘90 percent of Americans are for a responsible background check for a gun, and you know what this Congress has done? Not voted on it, not brought it to the floor, not introduced a bill,’ I said, ‘They’re all scared shitless of the NRA, aren’t they?’”
As candid as Biden seems to always be, given the lack of filter, he relayed a response not even Walsh was expecting to hear saying:
“‘John, every one of them, because the NRA will run a tea-bagger against you. . . . They’ll put 5 million bucks against you.’”
It’s nice to see that the idea of “tolerance” and the persecution that comes to those in violation only applies to those whose agenda matches that of the left. What do you guys think of this – is this becoming of the Vice President of the United States of America? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
