Up in the glorious state of Minnesota and in the fabulous city of Minneapolis (but St. Paul and the rest, like Falcon Heights, are great to) tea baggers were played for the fools they are.

Meeting to protest against immigration. At the start a young man jumped up to rally the crowd. Unbeknownst to them, he was mocking them, getting some to even join in a "Columbus Go Home!" But most came to realize that he was criticizing the rotten immigrants that have come from Europe over the past few hundred years, ruining everything (by taking jobs, bringing diseases, etc.).

Video at Crooks and Liars.

As well... They note the violence met out to some of those that protested the teabaggers.
...I've been warning for awhile that there is a violent element already involved in the immigration debate, and when they become empowered by the "tea party" types, it's going to get ugly. ...

As I noted in the previous post. The way the Republicans, the media strongmen, and these rally organizers are acting is just stirring up, motivating, and justifying some of the worse sensibilities and inclinations of people. Not good.
