Gawker: Oregon Tea Party Borrows 4chan's Slogan

We've asked whether hacker website 4chan is a cyberbully. We've asked what they have against 11-year-old girls. But has anyone thought to ask about 4chan's political persuasion? Because Oregon's Tea Party just stole their slogan.

4chan's menacing creed has turned up in a most unlikely place. It appears in Oregon Tea Party recruitment material (and in the hands of a middle-aged Oregonian woman, left, who prefaces it with "As a Mom...") If any local Tea Party members have yet to realize where the slogan originated, that should be pretty clear as soon as 4chan finishes taking down the remains of the Oregon Tea Party's Facebook page. [Geekosystem, TNW, via Arken]

According to the page at Geekosystem, Anonymous flooded the Oregon Tea Party's page with "Desus, Heracrosses, and links to sex toy websites, among other things."  The most recent update says that "The Oregon Tea Party will no longer be using the slogan."  Also, the Oregon Tea Party's wall is now blank.

How the hell did the Tea Party even KNOW about that?

Someone in the Oregon party's ranks is a 4chan troll who spends is time on the boards LOLing at the unfortunate.

It's not hard for me to believe.

Oh wow. WOW. They SERIOUSLY took 4chan's slogan? The big, ominous one that perfectly demonstrates why you don't fuck with 4chan? WOW.

I'm in awe. Seriously. This is fantastic.

Either they have ballz or they lack brains. Either way that was really foolish.
evildevil 27th-Jul-2010 07:59 am (UTC)
Oh, the fools. Never mess with them...
very_vogue 27th-Jul-2010 08:00 am (UTC)
...consequences will never be the same.

But seriously, why would they even WANT to use that?

"Legion" is an evil demon in the Bible, who possesses a man whom Jesus heals, by exorcising the demon.

The Gospel of Luke, Luke 8:30

"And Jesus asked him, saying, "What is thy name?" And he said, "Legion": because many devils were entered into him."

Clearly the Tea Party thinks they are doing the Lord's work by being possessed by The Devil so Jesus would heal them... or not.

They did. They flooded the Oregon Tea Party's Facebook page. That page is now blank.

Anonymous already went to war with Scientology...and the Tea Baggers had to go send them an invitation to troll. This is gonna be great.

Which movie is this from? I thought I could ID every Will Smith film since Independence Day and it's bugging me.

I just posted this to my local conservative forum where Tea Party is everything. I await the butthurt and rage filled cries of how dare anyone do that to an organization as good and as wholesome as the Tea Party who only wants to save American citizens from themselves.
homasse 27th-Jul-2010 11:33 am (UTC)
AHAHAHAHA, dumbasses.

Or rather, AHAHAHAHA, dumbasses who didn't realize who they had messed with and ran screaming--the Oregon Teabagger's FB page is completely gone now.

Clearly they didn't learn something. Don't fuck with 4chan. They eat their young.
