Still Think the Tea Party is not Racist?

This letter was posted to a blog by Mark Williams, official spokesperson for the Tea Party Express. It's his response to the NAACP making a statement that the Tea Party is a racist organization. Good job Mr. Williams, there's no doubt about it now.




Dear Mr. Lincoln

We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!

In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the ‘tea party movement’.

The tea party position to “end the bailouts” for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn’t that what we want all Coloreds to strive for? What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.

And the ridiculous idea of “reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government.” What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!

The racist tea parties also demand that the government “stop the out of control spending.” Again, they directly target coloreds. That means we Coloreds would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.

Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government “stop raising our taxes.” That is outrageous! How will we coloreds ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?

Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.

Sincerely

Precious Ben Jealous, Tom’s Nephew NAACP Head Colored Person

Other gems from Mr. Williams.



And Williams, who not surprisingly is also a right wing talk jock, has distinguished himself in many ways…

Calling President Obama an “Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug and a racist in chief”:

Saying Muslims worship a “monkey god” and calling Islam a “7th Century Death Cult Coughed Up By A Psychotic Pedophile” …

And saying this at a tea party rally at which Sarah Palin also spoke, shortly after Scott Brown’s election in Massachusetts:

“Political correctness is going to kill us. Political correctness led to 9/11, political correctness led to Barack Hussein Obama — political correctness is a societal HIV. (America has) a full-blown case of AIDS and we’re the cure,” Williams said.

This is just Williams’ latest go-round. He has a long history, including…

…calling former president Jimmy Carter a “creepy f*ggot,” and has stated that Obama was born in Kenya, according to Media Matters for America

There are MANY people of color that are in the Tea party movement!

The MSM will not show them or speak with them.

There are also Democrats,Libertarians and Republicans united to a common goal in the movement.

It maybe possible that certain local movements(it is not organized nationally)whose members are racist.

There are racists in the NAACP and La Raza too.

Why do they get a free pass from you?

This is how racism and prejudice begin. The OP is no better than any racist or anyone who holds unreasonable prejudice against a group of people. One man's actions do not represent the group. Just like because 20000 white people owned slaves in America 150 years ago doesn't mean all white people are racist. Just because one black guy in a gang sold crack and shot a 12 year old doesn't mean all blacks are criminals. All muslims aren't evil.

YOu are stereotyping. What's even worse is the logic you are using. If more than 50% of a group believes something or does something I can see making a generalization and a stereotype. Your basing your opinion off 1 man. I've been to many tea party meetings in Louisiana. Blacks, whites, latinos, gay, straight, everyone is there.... I've seen no racisim.

The Tea Party doesn't have a platform per se. Most of the people there I would call constitutional conservatives or libertarians. Just for reference I attended one meeting in New Orleans and out of the 400 or so people there less than 50% were white.

You sound like you have an agenda. Have you ever been to a ea party rally? You haven't, and if you have you are lying when you say it's a racist group. Learn for yourself what it is. Just because you disagree with the conservative nature of the group doesn't mean you have to label them racist. You support your marxist agenda and let the rest of us attend a group that supports our value system. We don't have to agree, that's the beauty of America. We elect who the public wants. And if more people want Marxists like Obama in office then thats what we'll have. If more people want small government, states rights, secured borders, lower taxes, the ability to choose our own healthcare, the right to own a gun, the right to free speech and the ability to be free and to choose, to make our own decisions and let us fend for ourselves rather than being wards of the federal government, then we'll have a conservative candidate.

The tea party exists. Because our 2 parties have gone away from their core values. A typical republican today is more liberal than a democrat was 60 years ago. A democrat today isn't a democrat, they supoort socialism, facism, communism and marxism. The Tea Party exists because our 2 party system has failed the people of the US. Well the people in those parties have failed us.

Many politicians start off as idealists. They want to serve the people and do the right thing. Eventually they understand that in Washington that you have to sacrifice your integrity to keep your cush job and you have to go along for the ride with your party's big whigs. Then they think they are elite and superior to the masses and they know whats best.

They are public servants. They are supposed to serve the will of the public. ANd they don't. They believe they know better than me, you and everyone else and that what the public wants doesn't matter because they are smarter than you and I. So they do what they want. And most of it is designed to keep themselves in office and increase our dependence on them. They think they are the ruling class not public servants. That's the problem. Obama isn't a ruler, he's a manager serving at the behest of the public. He honestly sees himself as our ruler. He's not a king, he has no crown. Neither do any other of these elitists pieces of lobby dollar taking trash politicians in DC.

Racism. Hardly.

Racism-

a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3. hatred or intolerance of another race or other races

1-I see no evidence of #1 in the tea party. Now I've seen racism against whites from Obama and his wife. The Tea Party supports numerous black and latino candidates. So #1 proves your a liar.

2-The Tea Party has no racist policies or doctorines. And they don't discriminate against anyone based on race as evidenced by their support of minority candidates. Now we do have many government policies that are discriminatory against whites and men. #2 proves you are still a liar.

3-The Tea Party as a group doesn't hate any race. They support conservative candidates of any race. They thrash liberal candidates regardless of race, most of their ire is actually directed(if you go by bodycount) at white politicians. They allow all races to attend meetings. #3 proves you are still lying.

Every large group has someone who is racist or prejudiced against someone. And guess what, thats ok. It's America. They are free to believe anything they want no matter how stupid it is, refer to your post if you don't understand. But the beliefs of a few don't represent the mass.

Did you know that Lincoln said, in an 1858 debate with Stephen Douglas "I shall endeavor to re-unite the negro with his native clime no matter how great the expense."
Of course you didn't. You're too busy accusing everybody who disagrees with you of racism. And by racism, I mean the marketing ploy liberals use to scam money from those of us who are employed. Grow up.

Still Think the Tea Party is not Racist?


I call for a Resolution for the NAACP to Repudiate 'Racist Elements' in their Movement.

The NAACP is racist by definition. What if I started a National Association for the Advancement of White people?
But we just overlook the Black associations and the things they say.
Guess what, there are Africans that are white too!!
People are stupid.

You Americans think you’s have it bad, you should have a look over the pond at our BNP and EDL, they make the tea party look like Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks love child.

The T-Party is not a registered political party, it's a movement in defiance of over spending, over reaching, intrusive, socialist government. It had nothing to do with race at all. But the frightened democrats and all their cohorts in the NAACP, big unions, left leaning extremist groups are all up in a tizzy because November is coming and the movement is going to wash over them like a Tsunami on steroids. When all is aid and done, the badly beaten democrats will take Obama to the woodshed where he will be blamed for all their woes.

What the T-Party represents is a cross section of every day Americans of all kinds and all colors and all ethnic groups.

What the NAACP, and the Obama administration represent is true unbridled racism in true form.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

You guys need to read the letter in context with the argument. It's ok for the NAACP to use the word 'colored' but God forbid anyone else should. Furthermore the letter was meant to prove a point that left wing media seems to be ignoring.

Perspective people. Perspective.

Im mad! I want you all to be mad too!! Lets be mad together!! We can spout lies, weave webs ,and pander to peoples most base emotions.There is no doubt if we cloud issues and bring up false talking points often enough the tea party people will be put on the defensive and have no choice but to argue what there not for instead of thier true intent. We dont need them spreading thier scary message of basic government and economic oversight. So lets continue our campaign against fiscal responsability , and free speach, we must continue to insinuate that they are militant racist crazies, its all we have left.

Join me in making sure my children and yours have to work into there late 70's to retire with government aid ! I mean who are these tea party people to not agree with our view that we should all be wards of the state! left wing radicals like us all know its true that the more government gets involved the better off we are, its not our fault we cant choose to eat healthy! We want our government to spend countless dollers making sure we dont have to think for ourselves about any issue lets face it, people like Albert Einstien, and Steven Hawkings, who dared to think out side the box are angry crazy people too ! There should not be any idea floating around that might spark a change that will affect our welfare checks. Im happy living in a government assisted living fascility and i think everyone else would be too! Thats why i am a left wing radical socialist !

That news reporter is a b****. she interupted him and wouldn't let him interupt her and she didn't GET it. He's trying to say there's another group that crashes Tea Parties. He's trying to say that the Tea Party wants to uphold the Constitution and that the gov't is becoming too overbearing and remorseless. The Tea Party stand for the people but the NAACP thinks because the Tea Party doesn't have enough black people its racist. Are you ****** kidding me? Then what's the NAACP composed of? A balance of black people and white people? SHE'S the racist.

Lol, people who bash the tea party are completely brainwashed, but so are the fake conservatives who hijacked it. I support the tea party, not the fox news garbage or MSN's fabrication, but the anti-war and anti-federal reserve and general good libertarian values that it was founded on. The tea party movement has nothing to do with race, anybody who makes it sound like it has to do wit race, is dishonestly pushing their own agenda, or really is completely brainwashed.

this is what happens when a racist comes to a tea party, they are outed as a infiltrator
