Bagger Baiting

I've come up with a new game. It's really easy to play, and works best on social media - although newsblogs like Huffington Post or Daily Kos work well too.

The name of the game is "Bagger Baiting". The point of the game is to troll "Tea Party" baggers into mouth-frothing idiocy. While many of them start off in this state - it is seriously fun to poke and prod their fellowbaggers along to join them.

There are a few rules:

1) No cussing. Cussing requires use of the "Swear Jar" - proceeds go to me.
2) You must present totally TRUTHFUL, legitimate arguments, and be prepared to slap down a link to a neutral news site to back yourself up.
3) As soon as one of them plays the "n" word card(nazi), you must be prepared to immediately invoke Godwin's Law.
4) Under no circumstances should you ever allow yourself to be provoked to breaking Godwin's Law.
5) Remember, Free Republic, Foxnews, and other bagger sites are NOT legitimate links, and such needs to be emphasized.
6) The use of foul language, name-calling or causing the invocation of Godwin's Law automatically constitutes a "win" for you. Take a shot - or chug a beer - or just LYFWAO.

A lot of these baggers are actually corporate shills, spewing TeapubliChristofascistEvangeliban talking points for the glorious recompense of $0.05 per post. They're easy targets, as they really don't have much more than their original talking-point as ammuntion, so they will fall for the Godwin gambit - or be forced to contribute to YOUR swear jar.

Enjoy.

    Haha - what they normally hate is the pointing out of the statistics...

    Like in the UK when people go on about us "letting all the asylum seekers in"... so you troop off the EU and come back with figures like 40,000 taken in by Germany, 30,000 by France, 15,000 by Sweden (with a population under 6th that of the UK) and the UK about 13,000. But can't let the mere facts of the situation get in the way of their rants! :-)

    Naw, your asylum seekers just try to kill as many Brits as they can, or at least try to stir up as much shit as possible.

    I don't have time for such nonsense.

    It has been a while since you have farted in our general direction. I hope that you are keeping warm over there.
