So, let me see if I understand...a member of the Tea Party asks fellow Tea Party members if there are any racists present, no one raises their hand, and this is viable proof to you that there are no racists in the Tea Party?

And yet, when Obama is asked if he or those immediately surrounding him are socialist (and they aren't...it insults me and many of my former-Soviet friends that any of you think what Obama is doing si socialist) and he says no, but he's lying?

Why is it proof in one instance, but a lie in the other? Because you have a personal beef with Obama? Because you can "tell" he's lying? Because you trust the Tea Party members in the video, despite not knowing any of them any better than you know Obama?

As a few others have pointed out, where were you and the Tea Party when these EXACT SAME POLICIES were being trotted out during the last eight years? For a group of people who have such a bloodlust for anyone taking away "freedoms", you certainly didn't bat an eye at the Patriot Act, or the warrantless wiretapping, or the corporatization of the election process, or the privatization of your military, or the sending of your jobs overseas, or the lack of protection along your border, or the selling of your defense system technology to MY nation (Russia).

Why is is bad when Obama does it, but you ignore it when Bush did it? Is it because you liked him more? Is it because he was a harder target, ethnically, to deride?

They aren't mad at the federal government, they are mad at this federal government.


As well they should be. What is wrong with that, praytell?


These people would just as easily unleash the power of the federal government against others for their own agenda.


Bullcrap. There is no evidence of that.


Where were these fascists when we were invading other countries illegally?


Fascists now, huh?
When/where have they exhibited fascist tendencies?


Where were they when the bubble was in its largest state, and Austrian Economics foretold of impending doom?


Which bubble specifically? The one created by Frank, Dodd, et al, or some other one?

Let me see if I understand you. If any federal govt. does something you disagree with and someone does not speak out that person is a fascist. Is that about it? I'm not being sarcastic just asking?

I wish the race card thing would end, but one race keeps on having its own favoritism towards its own kind. I want all people to realize and think that we are basically human. Reagan was right that the only thing that will bring us all together is some alien race coming to invade us and about to destroy humanity. Then we would wake up. Racism is even in the professional world. I personally thought racism ended somewhat. Pfftt it just swept under the rug.

all racial groups need to go. NAACP is a good thing, but they take things too far sometimes.

It doesn't matter who they expel or call out, the media will continue to pretend like it never happened.

Okay...im not a person who buys into the whole "All tea party members are racist" bull crap

just like i don't buy into the other crap about Obama, Ron Paul, etc etc


BUT! I do call it like i see it, and having a tea party member who is black get up there and say "SEE? None of us are racist, because IM BLACK" is just pathetically stupid.

It's much akin to the GOP hiring Michael Steele after Obama got elected.

It's filthy rich white people playing a game of poker with race cards.

Only the odds are stacked against us average joes 2 to 1...and none of us seem to be smart enough to count cards, so the most of us go off and play into the games.

Sad, really...

How can anyone legitimately defend this bogus party? The tea party is nothing but a group of far right bigots waving a false flag of political Impartiality. A true impartial party would be composed of conservatives, liberals, independents and libertarians. If people in this country continue to support either of these two corrupt and self-serving parties, our government will continue to conduct business as usual. All these parties should be eliminated and candidates should run on their own platforms. Let's be realistic, there will always be people in organized groups that don't represent "the true mission" of a particular group. The difference with the "tea party" is these racial views are publicly flaunted. You will always have "bad apples" but if you're sincere and true to your cause, you would call them out.

What are you basing this on? Left wing propaganda? I'd argue the Democrat party is nothing but a bunch of far left bigots.

According to what? Three clips the left wing MSM endlessly loops?

i do not believe everyone in the tea-party is racist, i do believe there are a lot of bad apples just as in every organization. the tea party does it self no good whatsoever by passing around emails like the one written in "slave talk" and the people defending stuff like that as not being racist?
i mean come on if a member of the naacp wrote an email talkin like a "redneck hillbilly" satiricalty advocating the glory of the tea party, you know it would be offensive and deemed racist. even if someone from the naacp did write an email like that, 2 wrongs dont make a right!!!!!

i'm sick of people using double standards to defend percieved injustices, and it happens on all sides of the fence. we need to grow up and stop acting like little kids, he said this, she said that, they called me names first so its ok for he to hurl racist and hurtful stuff back. possibly the best solution would be to ignore racism all together, then again we all see where that led to 7 yrs ago...

stop the hate!

Oh, so they sent in a black man convince the rest of us that the tea party is not racist? Im sorry, but I still do not buy that the tea party is void of racists or racism. The fact of the matter was, the black panther incident happened a year and a half ago. There was an investigation carried through by the Bush administration, the case was put down. No voters reported that they were intimidated by voting. This was in a majority black part of town that Republicans didn't have a stone's throw chance in.

So why after the investigations, after the fact that nothing changed or happened did the tea party once again, a year and a half after, bring up the issue of these two black panther members? Because of attention. Because they want to incite more violence, anger and motivation among their members and because they was to haggle the black panthers to respond. The tea party has not gotten the amount of attention it wanted so like clockwork they go right back to old issues and revive it to incite anger. It is pathetic, but then again an organisation as weak minded as the black panthers will respond right back to the weak minded tea party groups.

When this settles among the rightwing media what next? Are tea party folks going to go right back to being birthers? Or revolutionaries? Or secessionists? Where will the wheel stop?


You know I agree that Hate feeds Hate and I think that is what you are saying, however do you have a clear understanding of the control mechanisms that are operating in this nation? The "New Black Panthers" were convicted, period. The charges were dropped AFTER the conviction which is akin to punching someones teeth out and then UNpunching there teeth back in. In any case, what does this mean>>>>>>>>>>?

"When this settles among the rightwing media what next? Are tea party folks going to go right back to being birthers? Or revolutionaries? Or secessionists? Where will the wheel stop? " (From your above post)

You should be ashamed that you would post such a deceptive video. We know that the tea party is racist because we saw it on TV.

You should be ashamed of yourself for participating in the organized effort to portray the Tea Party as rascist.

Propaganda pushers, infiltrators, paid bloggers and violence inciting crowd agitators are more dispicable
Than the KKK.

However contemptable and pathetic the KKK is, at least open about their feelings.

Open you eyes to the BS such as the "racism" of the Tea Party. As soon as it became apparent that a ground swell of disgust was gaining power, the Republicrats started a campaign to portray the Tea Party as homophobic and rascist.

DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE. ITS DIVIDE AND CONQUER POLITICS - AS USUAL.

ATS HAS BEEN TARGETTED BY HATERS. SPREAD PEACE, LOVE AND UNDERSTANDING.

Yeah, because ignoring civil rights violations and equality for all people is the new "hope and love". Does it occur to you at all that you're trying to bury and ignore modern racism? What exactly is loving about that? What do you hope to accomplish by ignoring such a large problem?

I'm glad you posted that first video. The msm only showed a very small clip of that saying that here's proof that tea partiers are racists, they failed to show the confrontation of one of the members that caused the guy to eventually leave. I love that sign that they kept following him with, because I believe that sign was true. I believe they are trying their hardest to show these people are all racists and would do anything to stop the movement. Why do people ignore these complete distortions of the truth? I remember when msnbc ran a cropped clip of a man at a tea party rally that had an automatic weapon on his shoulder and said that this was proof that the Tea partiers were violent racists, but the actual footage showed a black man was toting the weapon. Lies, lies and more lies.
Think for yourselves people!! Use common sense for pete's sake!!!
Read history!!!!!!!! Look up people like margret sanger that the left glorify, look at who she REALLY was. Look up the real history on Senator Byrd (D) who the press, congress, and clinton along with your president glorifies.



"He will join the United States Senate as the youngest senator serving,: Manchin said in announcing the appointment. "And it's only befitting that he is replacing the most beloved, the most historic figure that the Senate has ever known and who happened to be the oldest when the good Lord took him."

news.yahoo.com...;_ylt=AjM5kIpk5iDv3LpOyqY69vB0fNdF

HE FREAKIN FILIBUSTERED AGAINST CIVIL RIGHTS, HE WAS A MEMBER OF THE KKK, yet he is seen as " most beloved" are you guys for real? It should have read "most racist"

Wake up folks, see the real racists for who they are.

The MSM are trying to portray "Tea Party" people as universally ignorant, uninformed, racist and intolerant. Clearly Mr. Cain is brave enough to call that bluff, and I applaud him for that.

It is not a surprise that left-wing organizations such as MoveOn.org and some right-wing organizations both seek to marginalize a genuine grassroots movement: it threatens them that ordinary Americans can mobilize without them, gaining a political voice separate from all the old-school talking heads.

While I am not a Tea-Party member, I applaud whenever my fellow citizens stand up and speak for themselves on any issue. MSM and detractors, it's called FREEDOM when the citizens take matters into their own hands, and you do a disservice when you attempt to paint them with a broad brush, and discredit them with the race card.

I'm sorry but I must ask if you understand what you just said. Race hate is not a card to be torn up. Americans, each and every one of us (white and black) needs the couch on this one! Validation of blind hatred is what needs to be stopped. Hiding your head in the sand and saying catchy phrases has never ever made this problem go away. We all need to realize it is THIS issue alone that the elite exploited and made us what we are today - fearful people afraid of everything! We all need to face this head on like the festering wound it is, dig out the rot, treat the remaining flesh, clean and purify it and let it finally heal! Nothing comes from hiding from the problem - which is why we are in it up to our necks now! America can not be one if we remain divided. All we can be is ignorant slaves to the NWO PTB.

The most disturbing part is when the people show their true colors when asked if there are any patriots in attendance. Nationalist pride and jingoism in full gear.

The tea parties are philosophically dead, just they continue to move in the minds of yet another type of statist.

Nationalist and statist are two totally different things my friend. Patriotism - to me - signifies a pride in what ones forefathers achieved. It has nothing to do with the glorification of government or authority.

I'm just a little sick of being told that patriotism is a relic we should rather forget, when in fact it is the only thing reminding us of how we can achieve a more free existence. Putting pride in ones country behind us and opting for something new and untested is precisely how we will forget what liberty is all about.

So politics in this country has devolved into:

"You are a racist"
"No, You are a racist".

Ok, and people wonder why I think politics is generally nothing but BS. None of you are concerned with doing anything productive. You just want to scream at each other.

Have at it Hoss.

"I'm not racist! I have black friends"...

I'm just going to point out to the OP that this video really says nothing. After being accused of being racist; when under no pressure at all, nobody admits to being racist... I'm not saying that they tea party is made up of racists. However, do you really expect this video to somehow prove that the tea party doesn't have racist members?

We all know that some racists will be attracted to a group with morals such as the tea party. We also know that racist people might be attracted to the NAACP, to keep things fair. That does not mean the all members of the tea party are racist or that it is a prerequisite for the group. The most we can ask, is that the tea parties leadership recognizes this tenancy and takes steps to keep racism out of their political message. For example, racist slurs towards congressmen or racist signs during demonstrations.
