Tea Party, Racism and the NAACP



I haven't posted about the NAACP's 'resolution' because it makes me too upset. Not feigned, good post upset...but truly too pissed off to write coherently and succinctly about it--so excuse me in advance if this is a bit disjointed...

The easiest thing to do is scream 'racist' when you have no rebuttal. It's been done for ages. The other day Al Sharpton kept saying, "What's so hard about Tea Party leaders saying they condemn the racist elements of the Tea Party?"

I'll tell you what's so hard about that 'Reverend' (OMG, did I really forget to tell you all I am now an ordained minister?!) is that mean the Tea Party leaders giving in to your insanity and validating the idea that there are 'racist elements' within the Tea Party movement.

I spent quite a few hours over the weekend scouring the web for offensive Tea Party signs. I looked through PAGES and PAGES (some of you people out there are so witty and delightfully sarcastic!) of signs in any search combination I could think of and the two posted above are the 'raciest' I could find. Now, I don't think the one on the right is racist at all, but it does mention the word 'slavery' and the one on the left I wouldn't carry and furthermore I don't really get it...

Two signs does not an 'element' make in my opinion.

Now, on the news NAACP reps keep saying there were signs that say "Lynch the President." If that sign existed, it would be all over the NYT, NPR, KOS, and the DU. It's not. It's nowhere. It doesn't exist. So, I decided to go over and look at the Tea Party resolution on the NAACP's site...surely they would have the Lynch sign. Nope. Though, they did come up with four signs that offended them as opposed to my two:



I didn't get the Mac Daddy one, so I did something the NAACP obviously didn't do and I researched it. It seems a BLACK PASTOR in Harlem dubbed Obama the long legged Mac Daddy. And, I'm not quite sure if quoting the late Gary Coleman constitutes as racism...

So, we've come up with 4 "iffy" signs out of how many hundreds of thousands have attended tea parties over the past two years?

(If you're bored today you can read the whining and crying in this Democratic Underground thread about Biden saying he and Obama didn't view the Tea Party as racist...)

So, sorry Reverend Sharpton, we're not going to pacify you by condemning an "element" that doesn't exist so you can turn around and pull a quote that says Tea Party leaders admit to racism. FOUR SIGNS OUT OF THOUSANDS (and those signs were probably Kos Kids). Most likely there are some racists that are in the Tea Party...I'm sure there are. Just like there are racists in LaRaza, the New Black Panthers , in Islam and yes, even in the NAACP. But until you acknowledge that this movement is not about Obama's half Blackness and about smaller government and self governance and that Tea Party members were almost as frustrated with Bush as they are with Obama...you will have to continue to pull the tired, old racist card...

Where is your TEA PARTY (RACIST WHITE CHRISTIANS) during George W. Bush Jr. and Dick Cheney PRESIDENCY from 2001 to 2009? TEA PARTY (<--- RACIST WHITE CHRISTIANS with their SELF-HATING TOKEN MINORITIES) is formed during 2009! Those USA DEFICIT exploded in 2005 under George W. Bush Jr. and Dick Cheney PRESIDENCY! Of course, TEA PARTY is RACIST because Barack Obama (being BLACK) inspired your TEA PARTY to be FORMED in the first place for GOP GREED, CORRUPTION, and BENEFITS of your TOP 1% JEW-CHRISTIAN CLOSET GAY-As-Hell PLUTOCRATS!! =/

MURDER ENOUGH INNOCENT PEOPLE in USA with your FALSE FLAG ATTACK (9/11 INSIDE JOB with many VICTIMS, ATHEIST Pat Tillman DEAD, and more) and KILL ENOUGH INNOCENT PEOPLE in MIDDLE EAST for other people's NATURAL RESOURCES such as OIL! Your TEA PARTY (GOP WAR-MONGERS) started those IRAQ and AFGHAN WARS, yet your RICH WHITE JEW-CHRISTIAN RACISTS like your TEA PARTY won't pay a cent for any of those WAR EXPENSES at all! Instead, YOU want Middle-Income Class and Low-Income Class to foot those ENTIRE BILLS and send more of their SONS and DAUGHTERS (Mostly BLUE COLLAR WORKERS) to die over there and goes in harm's way for your GOP and TEA PARTY GREED! That's WHILE your WHITE JEW-CHRISTIAN RACISTS (Vietnam Draft Dodgers from mostly BABY BOOMERS like Ted Nugent, Rush Limbaugh, George W. Bush Jr. and more won't even send their KIDS to Iraq and Afghan Wars or even go there themselves during Vietnam War) waving your RACIST-As-Hell YELLOW RIBBON, flashing your RACIST-As-Hell CHRISTIAN CROSS, yelling RACIST-As-Hell GOD BLESS AMERICA to our FACE daily especially to MINORITIES like ME, and hide cowardly behind AMERICAN FLAGS as if YOU are some kind of BS AMERICAN PATRIOTS!! >=(
