Derived from "Squillionaire," "squill" is a dereogatory term for anyone who accumulates, flaunts, hoardes, or otherwise posseses wealth beyond reason.
Uugh, look at that squill parking his Lambo in the bike lane.

This fucking squill bought herself a Gucci handbag last week and gave $5 to my GoFundMe for insulin.

My landlord raised the rent again but they still wont fix the leaky roof. What a squill!

In 1773, a group of rebels in Boston harbor angry at a foreign king for forcing taxes on tea imports that the rebels were forced to buy, so they prentended to be dark-skinned natives and dumped the imports into the sea.

Today, a wing of the Republican party dedicated to getting Obama out of office, while conveniently living in denial about the abuses of the Bush years and the Wall Street origins of the Great Recession (2007-present). For instance, the tea party has no problem w/ the glut of cheap imports flooding Walmarts across the fruited plain or the debasement of wages globally that result from it. The tea party actually opposes living wages and organized labor, while having no problems w/ white collar fraud.
The Boston Tea Party was as American as apple pie.

The modern tea party twerps piss me off. Do they even know what the Boston Tea Party was about? It was a foreign country taxing us on imported tea. Who wanted NAFTA and WTO in the 1st place? Who voted for total banking deregulation? Did the Founding Fathers come to America to have the church tell them what to do? I know the desire to tease gays must be irresistable, but THINK!

A group that originally supported Ron Paul but was subsequently taken over by Republican Fundietards, Corporatists, and generally uneducated white blue collar rednecks who don't know what's best for them.

These people think they are mirroring the Boston Tea Party, but in reality are doing no such thing as the original Boston Tea Party was meant to stand against the corporatism practiced by the East India Company with the passing of the Tea Act of 1773. In short, this act gave the EIC permission to import tea into the colonies TAX FREE. This was done to screw over American tea businesses. Sound familiar?

They are also using this as an excuse to push a far-right christian fundietard agenda by gutting social programs, education, regulatory agencies and women's health services.

The end goal of their master is a stupid, destitute populace that is subservient to them and ONLY them.

These folks also love to project their own failures onto anything they perceive as 'the Left', or 'Liberals', or 'Libtards'. Examples of this include throwing around the words 'Indoctrination', 'Socialism', and 'Communism'. It seems all we can do now is prevent them from becoming another Liberty League.
Person 1: What's with the Tea Party? Don't they realize that the people they put in office want to hurt them, not help them?

Person 2: I'm sure people were asking the same thing about the Liberty League during FDR's presidency..sad how history repeats itself.

In order to seize power, the Republican elite, with lies and propaganda, have created the Tea Party, a right-wing political ploy cleverly disguised as a grass-roots organization. This group includes all the racist rednecks in the south (not everyone in the Tea Party is racist - it's just that all of the racists are in the Tea Party). Some followers of the movement are not stupid, but are unknowing victims of propaganda, and many others are often blindly satisfied by "news" that only presents one political viewpoint (often a deliberate pack of lies designed to anger the viewers into rallying against the supposed wrongdoings of Obama). Such "news" has the political advantage of providing the viewer with only what he wants to see and with only what he wants to hear.
Deceived Tea Party Member: "Hey, I looked up some of the accusations they were making about Obama on TV. They were playing brief clips of him saying things, accompanied with descriptions of what he really meant. So I looked up all of what he said and it turns out everything was taken TOTALLY out of context."

Informed American: "They did that on purpose, dude."
