It’s Official! The Tea Party Hates Us LGBT Folk! (Now Is That REALLY A Shock?)

What? An uneducated, ignorant far right fringe group of nutjobs with badly spelled signs hates gays, minorities, and anybody else who isn’t white and protestant?

Well. Stop the presses because the whole lie that the Tea Party are really only upset with massive spending has been proven to be a smoke screen for what really irks them. You guessed it, “the gays.” Well, of course, they are also furious at other minorities, as well….

The latest data on the Tea Party reveals that the anger coming from the movement isn’t unilaterally directed at government spending — one of the group’s core issues.

According to University of Washington professor Matt Barreto, who directed the poll, the Tea Party’s frustration with Washington “is going hand in hand with a frustration and opposition to racial and ethnic minorities and gays and lesbians.”

Other noteworthy findings from the University of Washington poll include:

-88% of Tea Party supporters approve of the controversial immigration law recently enacted in Arizona.
-Only 18% of those surveyed say gay and lesbian couples should have the legal right to marry.
-73% of Tea Party backers disapprove of President Obama’s policy of engaging with Muslim countries

So, don’t let a “Tea Bagger,” who were stupid enough to refer to themselves as “Tea Baggers” before they realized it was “dirty,” tell you they don’t hate you. Because they do. They can’t run from polling data.
