Look everybody, it's....Facebook?

This morning, wile paying a visit to Facebook, I came across this article from the Huffington Post. This image may look photoshopped, but I assure you, it's quite real (link here).

I'm not sure if the ripoff is blatant or not, but as someone who knows a lot about html, css, javascript and jquery coding, creating a page like this is actually quite simple to create a page just like this. Hell, these days you don't even need to know that much about code.

In any case, it seems that Tea Partiers are feeling 'persecuted', so they're more or less shutting down and protecting their own. If nothing else, you could call this the online version of small-town mentality. That, and I suppose they didn't already have a loud enough bull-horn to scream their tired diatribes.

I know I usually write diaries about coping with Asperger's Syndrome, but considering I've been beating myself up lately, I figured I'd post something that made me laugh out loud.

P.S., speaking of which, I'd also like to apologize for being standoffish with fellow kossacks lately.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    I write a series called 'My Life as an Aspie', documenting my experiences before and after my A.S. diagnosis as a way to help fellow Aspies and parents of Aspies and spread awareness. If I help just one person by doing this, then I've served a purpose.

    Conservapedia, since apparently Wikipedia was "too liberal," and generally unfair to conservative and religious nut jobs. It really fits nicely with the GOP "divide and conquer" as voiced my Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

    I've linked to the Wikipedia page on Conservapedia since the WOT shows the actual Conservapedia site as red, i.e., dangerous.

    I, for one, need no apology.  My nephew has Aspergers, and I have worked w/ differently abled people for years.  It's a tough row to hoe.  I hope you feel supported here.  I enjoy all of your posts.

    I'm pretty sure it's an autism spectrum trait to take everything far too seriously. We need regular scheduled lighten-up-and-laugh breaks.

    The "Tea Party Community" shows early promise, but it will still  be quite a feat to make a wingnut site with as much stupidity as Conservapedia. There is an entire wiki called Rational Wiki mostly devoted to mocking it (although it's more broadly addressed at the "bad conservative science" ideas Conservapedia perpetuates).
