On Friday, U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) called Tea Party members, “tea baggers” after the cloture vote the includes the full funding of ObamaCare, after Democrats stripped a Republican-backed provision to defund the health law. The final vote was 54-44.
Mikulski’s tea-bagger comments occurred as she was being interviewed by Andrea Mitchell of MSNBC on Andrea’s, “Andrea Mitchell Reports” program from the Senate chambers.
During the interview, Mikulski said, “The reason Ted Cruz stood up and asked for a delay was so that he could have a vote during today where his — the tea baggers in his Tea Party were going to watch.”
After her comments were released to the public by the left-leaning news media, MSNBC, who are known for commentators who insult conservatives, Republicans and conservatives from her state of Maryland and around the country flooded her Facebook page with angry counter comments to her insult.
A conservative responded by saying, “What did you call me? Why would you resort to calling names? Are you 5? Well obviously not, but apparently your mentality never left the kindergarten.”
Another conservative said, “Calling American's filthy names "tea-baggers" is an absolute disgraceful thing to do as a senator and as a person.”
The term “tea-bagger” has been used by many on the left as an insult to Tea Party members and conservatives since the election of President Barack Hussein Obama in 2009.
The definition of “tea-bagger”, too explicit to mention in this news report but is a form of non-penetrative sex and is done for its own enjoyment or as foreplay."
