Debunking The Tea Party Racism Tax Day Tea Party DC.... written and produced by:

On March 27, 2010 writer Frank Rich was quoted in the New York Times Op-Ed section The Tea Party movement is virtually all white. Is this true? He then closed his article with Are these politicians so frightened of offending anyone in the Tea Party-Glenn Beck base that they would rather fall silent than call out its extremist elements and their enablers? Many media outlets, including MSNBC, the Washington Post, CNN, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Huffington Post among others are insinuating that there is racism in the Tea Party movement. Take a look for yourself.

Filmed on April 15, 2010 in Freedom Plaza and at the Washington Monument in Washington D.C.

So to all the posters painting the Tea Party with a Liberal/Progressive approved Racial Paint Brush, please take some advice from the people in the above video and quit the race baiting.


I created this thread as way for people who haven't been to a TEA PARTY to see and hear for themselves what goes on at the these events and what people have to say about their participation at these events.

So they found 5 minority people at the Tea Party protest and that settles it for you???


Like it or not, the Tea Party movement is a white movement. You may find a few blacks or hispanics in the crowd...but you can't deny that overall it is a white movement.


I for one have never really pushed the Tea Party = racist angle...I will however often push the Tea Party = ignorant morons angle. It is supposed to be Taxed Enough Already....right? Did you hear any talk about taxes at the TAX DAY protest??? I did hear socialism a few times...so there you have it....idiots.

Oh please...the people in the video were race baiting just as much.

They all refered to Obama as half white and then said color doesn't matter...irony?

And the one guy was offended by others calling him an Uncle Tom...so to defend himself, he called them Sambos. Yeah...black people can be racist towards black people as well.


And them refering to the Democrats as the party of slavery just shows how uneducated they are...because they fail to realize that the Democrat party back then was the CONSERVATIVE PARTY. Labels change...but ideology does not.

As per your post I wholeheartedly disagree with you. The reason they didn't answer anything regarding tax's because they were specifically answering the questions painting the TEA Party Members as Racists.

Calling names is what you and others like to have resorted too, it hasn't gotten you or your cause any further.

I have to disagree with you there also, Labels do change and so does the ideology. Hence the democrat party has the most defectors from its membership and people who claim to be democrats since the last election.

Did you know that Martin Luther King Sr. was a Republican? He was the leader of the civil rights movement, if you didn't know that.

I can't claim to have been to all of the tea party events everywhere, but I have been to several here in my neck of the woods...

...and to my shock...

...not really...

Hispanics were very well represented...given the population of Hispanics, really not all that surprising...

Whites...well, duh...given the population of SE Washington is predominately white, not too surprising, either.

African Americans... Given that there aren't a vast number of them in this area, they were very well represented.

Samoans...two...husband and wife, and really nice folks.

Racist? Not to my experience... But, as I say, haven't been to all of them, everywhere.

Methinks that some of you might want to actually go to some of these events, rather than buy into what you're told on youtube, or MSM... Really.

There is no arguing with these folks we have been finding on the internet anymore.

They are right and when proof is given to them, they obfuscate and lie.

According to them all the ills in society now is directly linked to the TPM.

There is an all out battle being fought to demonize anyone that does not want a draconian nanny state that controls everything.

As someone posted another thread recently, they think food, health care, housing etc etc etc are rights.

There is no arguing with them. They want everyone to be taxed at 100% of the their wages and the government will decide what they deserve. This is their mentality. They just will not admit it though. I have tried to start threads to ask them their stances on how much the government should take and they obfuscate.

People that cannot put forth their own stances because they are afraid of what people will think of them, are liars and cowards in my book.

Maybe you should go back and rewatch the video...many of them stated why they were out there and what the TEA (TAXED...) Party stands for...none of them said taxes. I heard socialism, take our country back, freedom, american values, etc.

This has been the Tea Party (The Fox News hijacked Tea Party) problem from the start....none of them have a clue what they stand for.

I hear ya mang. But you know the true cause for us is to keep as many people up from now on until we get our way in congress and in POTUS. Last year they called us a fringe movement that could do no damage. They said the energy behind those town hall confrontations will die and people will be back to being sheeple again.

They were wrong, and we will continue to prove them wrong. I do not want my country to go into the night silent while our constitutions is being doused with gasoline by the liberal/progressives only waiting to be torched.

That video message has a few layers of Liberal/Progressive grade Tin foil headgear to get through, I would suggest for you to take the head gear off then try watching it again.

The only thing that has been hijacked is the Democratic Party and that is why I & many others like me had abandoned it last year.

Why do you deny history???

I know that a lot of southern blacks at that time were Republicans because Southern Democrats were an entirely different animal than Northern Democrats. And that is why the souther democrats became the "dixiecrats" and eventually became the GOP.

Just do some research...deny ignorance???

Hijacked by who and in what way??? Obama is doing nothing different than Clinton did...so what has changed to cause you to leave???


And if you are denying that the Tea Party movement was hijacked by Fox, Hannity, Beck, and Palin....then you are living so deep in world Fox News paints for you it is hardly worth talking to you.

Again, stick to the subject at hand quit trying to take talking points of your democratic/liberal/progressive/communist whatever party you like to be called.

This video just goes to show you how wrong you are and how badly you are misguided. If you are not misguided and your posts truly are from your heart, then your pandering is just helping our cause even more. Would you like another dose of your Blue Pill?

People are awakening from the Kool-Aid induced coma. I understand your anger as you are losing every political ground you held since last election. We might not have the strengthening numbers in your view, but you are very wrong. There are plenty more people who side with the tea party that continue to wake up. You might not know it but you are actually helping in that regards.

The only ignorance that has been posted here so far has been yours, hence the denying ignorance drop.

BLACK SAYS TEA PARTIES NOT RACIST
www.newswithviews.com...


FYI for those with allegiance to puppets of Wall Street
(Obama, Clinton, Bush, Carter, Ford, Nixon...etc)

The last President this country had was JFK. Regan stood up to the PTB and was reminded with a bullet that....he was just another puppet of Wall Street.

So you just dodge the question I ask you and move along?

Your lies bleed through what you type. You say you were a democrat up to last year...then you use the "us/them" or "you" labels about the last election...which wouldn't you been included in that group up until a year ago? I don't know why people do this...say that they have been a life long democrat and have left recently...and then the lie exposes itself. It doesn't help anything...you aren't fooling anyone.

The video shows 5...FIVE...minorities in a sea of white...and to you that PROVES there is no racism at all??? I can go find some videos that show the complete uneducation of FIVE tea partiers...does that prove they are all uneducated?

Go back in your hole...if you can't answer my questions or address my arguments...then fine...but don't try to misdirect as I am just "not getting it"...that is a cowards way out.

I think you seemed to have deluded yourself in your posts. I would suggest for you to take the time and review your own previous posts as they seem to be mostly based on the anger and propaganda you have been spoon fed thus far. But hey you have chosen your maker and then stand for it. Good for you.

Yes I use "US" as in the ones who woke up. Maybe I can send you the RED PILL.

Hijacked by Progressives, Communists, etc etc

Some of your more esteemed members:

The Clintons - Progressives
The Agressive Progressives

The Van Jones - Truther, Communist, Marxist, etc, etc
Not only am I a radical, but I drop hate Ryhmes too

Anita Dunn - Communist

George Soros - Communist
Down with Capitalism, I love China

There are more esteemed members but you already know who they are, and the best part is they are all advising the POTUS. Listen your party has been hijacked and you have been brainwashed. I don't know if there is any Grey Matter left to be saved.

Here is a video for you
