Establishment Republican Calls Tea Party Members “Teabaggers” and Refuses to Apologize

Walter HavensteinVideo has emerged that shows establishment Republican Walter Havenstein referring to members of the Tea Party as “teabaggers.”

The “teabagger” epithet is derived from a homosexual act. Yet Havenstein refuses to apologize for his use of the word.

As reported by Freedom Outpost:

Video has surfaced of Walter Havenstein, the GOP establishment’s pick to challenge Maggie Hassan (D-NH) in the upcoming New Hampshire gubernatorial race, dismissing Tea Party conservatives as “teabaggers” while speaking to a group of business students at the University of New Hampshire. The video is from 2010, during the height of the Tea Party’s popularity.

“We got a lot of problems in this country,” said Havenstein. “The teabaggers, or whatever they are, they’ve been telling us that all summer long. Alright?”

“Isn’t that who they are? I’m a little out of touch,” Havenstein continued, smiling.

Establishment Republicans like Havenstein are little different than Democrats. They want higher taxes and big government. The only differences are cosmetic and have to do with what they want to spend taxpayer money on.

Democrats like to spend money on social programs like Obamacare. RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) like to spend money on military and wars. But in the end, they all want more taxes, more government, and more power.

Let’s hope the voters of New Hampshire turn their backs on both Havenstein and Hassan.
