Tea Partiers Chan-ned

We all know that the tea partiers are a vocal people who attract a lot of attention to themselves, whether positive or negative. Usually when people attract a lot of attention to themselves,the Interwebz attack, often in the form of 4chan.

This week, 4chan decided that the Tea Party movement would be a good target of their teenage angst and took it upon themselves to alter the official party website. How better to affect the tea partiers than with porn and racial slurs?

Hit the break to find out the details of the attack.

The official TeaParty.org site has a link for photos on its main menu. That link goes to a ning site, teapartyorg.ning.com. Obviously, the old people who run the Tea Party have no idea what ning is or how to use the Internet because anyone who is a member of the ning site can post images and anyone can join ning. Needless to say, it has been a fun week over on their site.

From cocaine-loving grizzly bears to legalize pot proposition posters and the required advertisement for Jon Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity" advertisements, the site was filed with humorous photos and user names. At the time of this writing, the site is still online with many of the images still in place but the moderators have removed a good percentage of the porn and racist slurs. You should, however, still hit the link to see what is left. Some of it is still very funny.
