Kill Tea Baggers With Kindness

GLOUCESTER, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A group of protesters are killing sign-wielding tea baggers with kindness.

The Real Boston Tea Party are fighting angry tea baggers in the most polite way possible by staging counter demonstrations at protests where they drink tea, eat cookies, and snack on cucumber sandwiches while dressed in old timey costumes.

They often hold signs, only with much sweeter slogans like “Our tea party has cookies.”

Ringleader Kathleen Toomey believes their style of protesting has more impact on the opposition than just “screaming.”

She says, “What we do just stuns them. It’s nicer than using mean signs to counter their mean signs. Actual tea party members have joined us. Some didn’t agree with us but they said ‘great job,’ took cookies, and left.”

Even with their sweet disposition, some conservatives call the group “liberal elitists” and have threatened to have them shut down by reporting them to the Health Department for serving sandwiches.
