Why don't you STAY ON TOPIC for once?

It's absolutely pathetic when the tea party defenders can't stay on topic. They probably don't have anything of substance to contribute either.

This is a thread about hate, bias, bigotry, inept reasoning, poor judgement.
(and that's just from the liberal posters
)


What not to stay on topic about? We are reasoned, smart, and won't play by your silly biased generalizations and narritive.

That really is the entire problem. If the TP could be honest and admit that there are some racists in the group but they do not approve, that would be spectacular.

What this thread has shown is that instead they just blatantly lie and claim there is NO racism in the TP. Well if they were honest, I would then also believe their intentions and not want to label a whole group. But since they lie and pretend they just happen to be the only group of people in the country with not a single racist among them, it is not a stretch to also assume they lie when they claim they themselves are not racist.

They cannot have it both way. I have no problem admitting there are Democrats that are racist and they are a problem that needs to be fixed. If only the teabaggers could be so honest about themselves.


WAIT one minute!

The TITLE of the thread is The Tea Party claims that they're not racist

That is the SAME as saying The Klu Klux Klan claims that they're not racist or The Democratic Party claims that they're not racist.


No group can claim they do not have murders, rapists, thieves.... within their ranks when they have thousands of members in fifty states.

The fact that the Catholic Church has members who are convicted murders does NOT mean the Catholic Church is a church of murders.

That fuzzy type of logic is what the people on this thread are defending against.

The media has labeled the WHOLE Tea Party as Racist not just certain members.

Really?....hmmmm? You can't handle the truth! Sound familar?

Reality is a harsh mistress and you can never appease her. You attack, but cannot stand being defended against? So...your way of thinking is the only way and the rest of us are uneducated , racist masses?

Really? What are you? A Berkley student?

Actually what's pathetic is when dems/libs and so-called progressives have to resort to posts like yours when they so quickly run out of intelligent arguments.

Personal attacks coming next?

What is really pathetic is we end up wasting time defending agains idiotic attacks instead of looking at what TPTB has up their sleeves and what we can do to counter it.

Talk about useful idiots...

The beauty of the 1st amendment is that people have the right to be racist if they so choose. It doesnt mean you need to agree with what someone says but you do need to respect their right to say it.

If you havent noticed there is no official form to fill out to become a tea party member. Anyone can support the tea party. It has a founder but no leader. Are there racists in the tea party? Yes, just the same as there are racists in the mainstream republican and democrat party. There are racists everywhere and even though I dont support their views I respect their right to have an oppinion.

Welcome to America.

Your speaking of very few individuals. Yet you have congressmen/women from the Deomocrat side saying that the tea party needs to go to hell? Because that isnt offensive.

I'm sorry you had to experience that, I hope that the criminal was caught and jailed. I have no tolerance for thieves, killers, and rapists.

And see, we hate the same people....and I agree with your last statement. All of this is a divide and conquer strategy.

BUT I will point out what I see, the TP has been hijacked by destructive people that have taken it into a territory that I cannot respect.


OK I can agree with most of that.

I also think Sara Palin was turned lose and shoved at the Tea Party specifically to side line Ron Paul.

I view most of this political stuff with suspicion, but we are stuck with reality.

Obama appointed Mike Taylor (Monsanto) to the FDA and General Electric CEO Jeffery Immelt as Czar of the newly created Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. GE and JP Morgan have been in bed together since Morgan lent the money to start the company.

I do not care what color Obama is, those two appointments alone are enough to make me see red.

The Democrats and the Reboobs are exactly the same so that leaves the Tea Party as the only other decent sized political force.

Instead of trying to tear it down isn't it about time we grab it and yanked it back out of the hands of TPTB???

Calling the Tea Party "Racists" is NOT the way to make it the party that can challenge TPTB. What we want is for the Hispanics and Blacks to see it is also THEIR party.

Getting the Government out of the way so we can start our own business or earn a decent wage should be everyone's goal. It is the only way to get our economy back on track. At least the Tea Party can see that and has some knowledge of Fractional Reserve Banking and the role of the Fed.


See, I agree with most of this, but where I disagree with you is that the Tea Party imo is no longer a seperate force because it has been infiltrated and assimilated into the political mainstream(as you pointed out by mentioning that idiot Palin), and then you have your white nationalists sprinkled in with good measure to ensure that people of other ethnicities will be wary of them.

The legitimate members of the Tea Party movement, the folks that support Ron Paul's message and believe that all Americans deserve to be free and should be able to work to earn an honest living at a decent wage, need to break away from the garbage that is being touted around the country right now. It doesn't do any of you any good to be associated with it now since the GOP mainstream and klan members got their hands on it.

Question.

Are you saying this because you actually believe it, or are you hoping that some sort split in obama's opposition will help him get re-elected?

Just asking ...

If Barack Obama was on fire and begged for my help, I wouldn't even piss on that man to put the flames out. That's how much I hate that lying, corporate lap dog.

So to answer your question, I actually believe what I said.

My disgust for Dems/Reps is equal.

What about that is racist? It's just changing his name to reflect his commie dictatorship stance, it's meant to be funny and says nothing about him being half black half white. OOOHHH are you saying it's racist cause it's calling Chinese evil dictator Mao a president that has accomplished nothing?

I didn't know that being a corporatist makes you a communist, that's one thing that makes me lol.

Even Ron Paul calls Obama a corporatist, and he's right.




Socialism is a system where the government directly owns and manages businesses. Corporatism is a system where businesses are nominally in private hands, but are in fact controlled by the government. In a corporatist state, government officials often act in collusion with their favored business interests to design polices that give those interests a monopoly position, to the detriment of both competitors and consumers.

While I will not deny that their are racists in the "Tea Party", the reality is there are racist everywhere; white racist, black racist, brown racists and the more Obama appears to represent the Big Brother Welfare State that mostly the minorities feed at, the more it is going to appear he is the enemy of the working class that is expected to pay for it but to say the Tea Party is anti-black, anti-mexican etc is bull and those calling us who support the Tea Party and Ron Paul shills and other slurs really should relax and not worry about our being racist, we don't care what race you are if you are enemies of and/or supporters of the enemies of our country and as it happens, we don't care what race you are if you are a supporter of Obama, we are against you regardless of whether black, white or pokadot.

leave the hateful language at the door.


Bravo!! I commend you for trying to establish rational political discourse.



I've just never liked the Tea Party and it's obviously mutual.



uuummmm.....I think I may have to take back my last statement.



I could post some of the interesting signs that teabaggers have made but I'm sure that you've already seen them on some other site.
edit on 24-8-2011 by The Sword because: (no reason given)


LOL, it took you all of 1 1/2 hours to forget what you wrote in your opening post, well played!



I guess the Tea Partiers in this thread are no better since when faced with a discussion like this, they choose to use it to bash the DNC.

Stay on topic, folks.



That's right people this isn't a thread to bash the DNC, this thread is only to bash the Tea Party and anyone who feels the government is spending more than they make, STAY ON TOPIC!!!

Let this president continue down the road to insolvency because of his skin color. With a few more people like you we'll get there in no time!

I used to refer to obama on ATS as "obowma" until one of his supporters complained and a mod told me to "knock it off".

It wasn't racist by any means, it was because he was looking weak by bowing down to all those foreign leaders.

Interesting that no mod is telling people (like kitilani) using the derogatory gay slur "teabagger" to refer to a tea party members to also knock it off ...
