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'd like to
plus add: TPTB don't want a new party. They don't even want to recognize the ones outside of the Dems/Reps that exist! The Tea Party would be the only party not organized by TPTB and if legitimized, it would cause greater damage to the NWO than guns and rhetoric combined.
To think that there are no racist in any existing party is fantasy. Many should take a very long historical look at their party to see this. The Dems were not on the side of equality when it came to emancipation. The Reps weren't either until industrialization, then all men were useful. They have flipped and flopped for the better part of their party existence. Truth be told, the truth was never truly told to the American People because race is such a poll motivator, that no one wishes to get rid of the tool that makes and breaks elections.
I'd say take a good thing, move within it to clean it up and for once help those with racist views learn to understand that we can agree to disagree if it means we get our country back!

Eventually, the racial blame game will become similar to 'the boy who cried wolf'. After it becomes abused over a period of time, the affects behind blaming someone of being a racist will fade. Rightfully so.

Most of you are missing the point.

Some of the tea party members ARE racist, this is a fact.

But in turn, some of the senators ARE racist, this is a fact.

When I first saw the picture of Obama photoshoped as a bushman from africa, with the sign saying Go back to Kenya, the shock i had was unbelievable.

Then i bagan to think about it, how many people here on ATS saw the posts about Obama's fake birth certificate. I couldn't help but think that maybe, some of our members could be the same ones holding these signs.
It makes me so sad, that all the good that this place does, it could also be doing harm....

Knowledge is power, but only when used approprietly.

Well duhhhhhh. . . . .

Of course you can find some African Americans that support the Tea Party.

You can find black people who support just about any position that exists.

They're not all alike, remember?

And here's another earth-shattering revelation: They don't ALL agree with one another.

Exit polling after the last presidential election showed that MANY African Americans voted Democratic. That doesn't mean they ALL did.

If the Tea Party wants to attract more of the African American vote then they probably need to have more of a case for themselves than a few black conservatives' endorsements. The presence of a dark face here and there is not a persuasive argument in and of itself.

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.


No group is void of Racists. Period. So for any group to play the Race Card is complete and utter Bull. KKK = old Deep South Democrats. Panthers, want to kill Crackers. Progressives, both Black, White or any other color hate Whites (Progressive Whites think they are not White). Some Far Right people are closet Bigots. There are no innocent groups and anyone who plays the Race Card after a Black Man was elected President is either a fool or the worst sort of creep to ever walk the Earth. Right or Left, no matter. Creeps all.

The truth is that most White People are not Racists and most Tea Party People are not Racists. That is just another pack of propaganda to control people. Image being Black, being elected President by a majority White voter base and then the first thing you do is unleash the Race Card? I smell a Rat.

Excuse my ignorance, I'm not American and therefore know very little about the Tea Party.

My question is: Are the Tea Party an actual political party that one could vote for at an election? Or will 99% of their members just vote Republican? If so, what exactly do they (the Tea Party) expect to achieve?

They are all running on the Republican ticket for the most part. I do believe there are a smattering of independents to be found, but by and large we are talking about Republicans. So, most of them will be voting Republican it would seem.

I can't tell you exactly what they want.

Since democrats and republicans have legally crafted a two party system that makes it nearly impossible for third parties to run against them in most states and counties, the Tea Party represents a grass roots movement to usurp the existing republican party by mostly libertarian minded people.

The existing republican establishment has failed to reduce the size of government and a lot of people are pissed about that.

So you have a pretty broad range of people in the tea parties that range from semi-conservative all the way to anarchist - but all of them agree on one thing: the size of government is too big.

What you'll see are establishment republicans doing battle with tea party republicans in the republican primary to see who can get the nomination to run in the general election.

The goal of the MSM has almost been reached. You won't see the video of the guy chasing the idiot with the swastika on his shirt away from the rally on the news, will you?

I'll just say the the Tea Party was a great idea, that started in about 2002. For the people who fall into the Red Vs. Blue propoganda and only argue "Where were you when Bush was in office?", the Tea Party was just getting started. And yes I heard huge outcries over the "Patriot Act" (what an insult to name it that), and I heard complaints over the beginnings of the bailouts. I've pondered if Obama was a thought from TPTB so they could then discredit this growing group and divide the nation in dire times. What brings out the worst of people than a good old race debate, huh?

Folks, I think you can keep fighting for the true ideals of the Tea Party, which is limited government and fiscal responsibility, or you can jump on the Libertarian train with me. Don't listen to the arguments that Libertarians would suddenly allow companies to take over the world. They can only take over the world if they buy off country's governments and military and justice system, which oops that's what we have today.

Get the individual liberties back and you won't have to worry about corporations as much as you would think in this day and age of mass media. If the media focused on the real issues, which they would be forced to do if they weren't owned by our government, then the big bad corporations could be called out. Our votes would actually count because we would vote with our dollar, which is all they care about. Don't like that this company is treating its employees like crap? Don't do business with them.

Instead they are using our taxes to enforce whatever policies the rich elites put in place. And they enforce it through physical violence and murder. I hate to use the drug reference because I know the arguments against them and respect it. But if you're smoking a joint in your house in the middle of the woods, they would be justified in kicking your door in and arresting you. And god forbid you resist arrest for doing nothing, because then you are subject to an old school beatdown. Don't smoke the joint, that can be easily grown, instead you must go pay big pharm money so you can get a lifelong prescription to their ultra-addictive drug of choice!

Obama is a fascist much more than a socialist. Stop worrying about the treatment of the employees during the industrial era. It is my opinion that we wouldn't suddenly revert back to those times if the government's overarching power was nullified. We have the ability to communicate with people all over the world in seconds. We have the technology for more, better entrepreneurs. If you need someone watching over you, go get a babysitter and work it out yourself. Please don't force me to have a babysitter, too.

Does anybody bother to research who the guy speaking in the video is?

His name is Herman Cain AND HE'S TOTALLY PART OF THE CORPORATIST ELITE!!!

Just reading his short biography you can forget thinking of him as an unbiased, uncorrupted everyday common man fighting for your freedoms. The guy is a through and through upper class capitalist, one of a long long line of them who are seizing on pseudo-populism and propaganda in order to save the Republican party and turn it into a free for all of de-regulation and zero taxes on the rich and big business. HE DOES NOT SPEAK FOR THE VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS.

And OF COURSE the tea-party is going to scrounge up what minuscule amount of minorities they have supporting the party in order to save face!!! This is just part of a PR campaign to deny any racism amongst their ranks. When you hear tea-partiers or similar everyday right-wingers talk about things like welfare and illegal immigration, you can usually sense a latent quasi-racism that they let slip out in conversation here and there. I hear it all the time when I hear right-wingers talk in public, it's like they test the waters inching towards a politically-slanted prejudice to see if anybody waves the "I hate illegal aliens and welfare queens" flag with them. It's shameless, unmistakable and undeniable if you ever go out in public.

Lurch, I will tell you.
There is a Tea Party that is just a branch of the Republican establishment, the RNC. Just like any other business, they are out to get customers.
Then, there is the T.E.A. Party that actually has a beef with the establishment, which of course consists almost equally of Democrats and Republicans. Now, I say ESTABLISHMENT for a reason. There are FEW independents in the establishment, but a lot in the "electorate" that decides whether we have a Democrat or Republican "representing" us.
So, the TRUE T.E.A. Party is TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY, and it just so happens that the Democrats are the ones legislating taxes at the moment, so since the T.E.A. Party has to fund candidates against the status quo, and the election laws in the country almost guarantee it HAS to be either a Democrat or Republican, naturally we will see the T.E.A. Party support mostly Republicans.
ANYBODY that feels like they are TAXED ENOUGH ALREADY, is, by definition, a member of the T.E.A. Party. That is reality.
If not, you are more than likely a collectivist progressive Democrat that is hell bent on change. Eat the rich. That sort of thing.

Wonderful. The the OP is incorrect.


So for any group to play the Race Card is complete and utter Bull.


Then why play it? Why bring it up? Since when did the tea party decide to set its sights on the black panthers, the NAACP and how racist are? Since they decided to get attention. The issue with the two black panther individuals at the voting center happened in 2008, it was investigated and dropped. Yet the tea party decided to once again bring it up? And from there this became about how racist the black panthers and NAACP was. This was an attention ploy from the tea party, the race card was taken out by them.


KKK = old Deep South Democrats.


And your point? The KKK was started by southern Democrats, it was the South Democrats that spoke for the slavery apologists down South, there are many Republican voters that are racist that voted for McCain based on race. And? Racism comes from both sides, what more are you trying to argue here? What was the point of the tea party raising their mouths about the black panthers? They are a racist group, and? Whos the one playing the race card here?


Panthers, want to kill Crackers.


KKK members want to kill or forcebly remove all blacks and jews. Your point? Both are racist groups. Who are you trying to convince here? My arguement is the motivation behind the tea party bringing up race once again.


Progressives, both Black, White or any other color hate Whites


What proof do you have that all progressives feel like this? You talk about racism, about stereotypes and yet look exactly what your doing here. Im a progressive, I dont hate whites, it'd be highly contradictory for me to hate whites.

There was no reason for the tea party to start yapping on about the black panthers other than to get right back into the center of the media and to incite anger and violence. The incident between the two black panther members happened a year and half ago, it was debated, and investigation went through and then it was dropped. Yet after all this time, it was tea party members who decided to pull out the race card. So please, stop being a hypocrite.

Southern Guardian,
Do you believe that the black panther incident was handled correctly?
If so, why?
If not, why not?
Should we just let these things go?

One request when you answer. Please don't break down each question and answer it in isolation. I would like your gut feeling.
Thanks.

If President obama was white would the accusations of the tea party being racist even come up? or would it be replaced by say the accustations that it is been co opted by the evil capitalist, who discriminate against the poor. ( does that consitute racism?)
