TeaCon 2011, a large Tea Party conference outside Chicago, is turning into a chamber of horrors. Last night, right-wing media mogul Andrew Breitbart (who dreams of civil war) took to the stage in a hotel ballroom and exhorted his largely geriatric audience to run naked through the streets.
"I want you to screw with them the way in the 1960s, the left screwed with the system," Breitbart said. "I want you to run naked. I want you to screw these people. Because this is the end – in my humble estimation – of the American oppressive movement."
He also said that left-wing actress Janeane Garofalo is "Hollywood's sympathy f***" and called Nancy Pelosi a "bitch." Breitbart himself is publicizing those remarks on his own website.
Separately, alleged comedian and Fox News pundit Steven Crowder joked that America is the world's quarterback and Canada its "special-needs cheerleader." A liveblogger at the conference called his stand-up routine "indescribably bad."
There's more. Yesterday, my partner, Brandon K. Thorp, and I reported that one of TeaCon's organizers – the head of the Chicago Tea Party – is a john. For good measure, Tea Party congressman Joe Walsh, who owes $100,000 in child support, is scheduled to grace the event today, joined by Glenn Beck and Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain – plus Bachmann and Perry, who are addressing the conference via video.
So that's family values for you.
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP…
