Tea Party PAC FreedomWorks Produced Fake Panda-Hillary Clinton Sex Video, Because That’s How Freedom Works

Tea Party PAC FreedomWorks Produced Fake Panda-Hillary Clinton Sex Video, Because That’s How Freedom Works

The Tea Party very, very rarely lets us down in demonstrating just how tone-deaf and/or frighteningly absurd it can be. Whether it’s resident moonbat Michele Bachmann maintaining that “There isn’t even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas” on the House floor, Marco Rubio’s hide-and-seek with the camera during his rebuttal to the State of the Union this week, or the self-explanatory Sarah Palin, this group wants us all to take it seriously while it continues to fumble its way into late-night monologues.

Now yet more reassuring efforts at proving just how capable they’d be if they ever managed to seize real power have come to light: According to Mother Jones, prominent conservative advocacy group and super-PAC, FreedomWorks, produced a video featuring someone dressed like a panda simulating performing oral sex on someone dressed like Hillary Clinton, in an attempt at making some political point that would probably be obscure to Salvador Dali.

Frustratingly, the video itself hasn’t surfaced, though I’m constantly hitting “refresh” on YouTube’s home page in the hopes that it will. In the meantime, we’ll have to make do with the Mother Jones description.

In one sequence of the video, FreedomWorks executive VP Adam Brandon is seen waking from a nap at his desk — in what presumably is not meant to be symbolic of how unconscious the group seems to be. “In what appears to be a dream or a nightmare,” the story says, “he wanders down a hallway and spots a giant panda on its knees with its head in the lap of a seated Hillary Clinton and apparently performing oral sex on the then-secretary of state. Two female interns at FreedomWorks were recruited to play the panda and Clinton. One intern wore a Hillary Clinton mask. The other wore a giant panda suit that FreedomWorks had used at protests to denounce progressives as panderers …. Placing the panda in the video, a former FreedomWorks staffer says, was ‘an inside joke’.”

It also would appear to be a nod to that weird scene in Kubrick’s The Shining . At least they didn’t try to recreate the “old hag in the bathtub makes out with Nicholson” scene, I suppose.

Mother Jones continues: “Another FreedomWorks staffer who worked there at the time confirms that ‘Yes, this video was created’ …. ‘My mouth was wide open,’ a former official recalls. ‘”‘What the hell is this?’” Several FreedomWorks staffers were outraged and stunned that Brandon, the group’s second-in-command … had overseen the video’s production, appeared in it, and intended to show this film at [a July 2012] conference, which would be attended by many social-conservative activists.”

Apparently that didn’t happen, but FreedomWorks is currently under investigation for various possible financial and ethical misdeeds, with the video probably destined to end up as Exhibit A. (Unless there’s something even more surreal in the group’s closet?)

At any rate, I look forward to reading more about this group’s misadventures. And hitting refresh on YouTube.
