"Fleabagger” (flea + “teabagger”) has been used since at least April 16, 2009 as an alternative term for “teabagger.” “Fleabagger” is a derogatory term. A “fleabag” hotel is an inferior hotel, seemingly containing fleas. In gay slang, “fleabag” means an old whore and “flea bagger” means an elderly male homosexual.
By October 2010, “fleabagger” began to be used as an opposite of “teabagger,” with “fleabagger” an epithet applied to the left and “teabagger” and epithet applied to the right. This meaning of “fleabagger,” however, was relatively little-used until October 2011, when the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters were called a “Flea Party/Fleabagger.”
“Fleabagger” should not be confused with “fleebagger”—a politician who flees a state to prevent a quorum.

I’m pointing out that the Fleabaggers’ original gripe was supposed to be high taxes.

When Democrats say “teabagger”, they mean “American”. They came up with the term so they can surreptitiously rant against Americans

When the paid fake supporters of SEIU saw the Fleabagger rally had ended, they dropped their signs and said “I’m outta here”. What a bunch of haters.

I think we should all consider the left ‘Fleabaggers” from now on… I believe it is only fitting for such trash!

With all the junk and trash these ‘people’ left behind, they are now dubbed FLEABAGGERS. Wish I could take credit for making that up, but I can’t.
Why is everyone calling libs fleabaggers now?

Adding insult to injury, both teabaggers (Right) and fleabaggers (Left) flooded the comments section in empty headed tail-chasing exercises, albeit some entertaining.
