I guess no one read the full article nor can anyone grasp the irony of this image when compared to the rhetoric that came out of Obama's own mouth and the mouths of his followers regarding the tea party and "patriots"

Consider the following.. Was Obama displaying his "disturbing nationalist impulse" back in 1997


It didn't work, though. The NAACP still saw the costumes as part of a disturbing, nationalist impulse:

The Revolutionary War-era costumes, the yellow “Don’t tread on me” Gadsden flags from the same era, the earnest recitals of the pledge of allegiance, the over-stated veneration of the Constitution, and the defense of “American exceptionalism” in a world turned towards transnational economies and global institutions: all are signs of the over-arching nationalism that helps define the Tea Party movement.

So, by the NAACP's logic, it would appear that Barack Obama is an over-arching nationalist, and perhaps a racist, antisemitic nativist as well.

That, or the left has been engaged in three years of juvenile character assassination to protect a guy who never got the memo about the worrisome deeper meaning of regimental coats and tricorner hats.

A sign of the times, I dont think they do.
I would wager a bet they do not even understand the constitution,
or even know where the symbolism comes from on the Gadsden flag.

Really was this the only time he dressed patriotic, back in 1997? When was the last time he dressed patriotic Halloween?

There is a difference between playing the part, and being the part. So is he just playing the part? Or is he actually being the part of a true patriot?

He looks good in the uniform. He is most certainly a Chameleon who changes colors at the drop of a hat. Or should I say a typical politician.

I wonder if he still has the scars from the rash it must have given him....

I really have to stay away from Obama threads, because they are making me nastier than usual.

Good catch though.

I thought the "TEA Party" was about ideas and values.
All you have to do is put on a historical costume and you are part of the TEA Party?
Really?

What was the point of this article?

The NAACP speaks for all of the left and Obama?
Obama needs to defend or apologize to or for the NAACP and the left?
The NAACP said something. So?
Take it up with them. Why are you trying to take it up with Obama and the left?

Now Ron Paul started the Tea Party too?

Who's holier Ron or Barack??

This is nuts.


On February 19, 2009,[55] in a broadcast from the floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, CNBC Business News editor Rick Santelli criticized the government plan to refinance mortgages, which had just been announced the day before. He said that those plans were "promoting bad behavior"[56] by "subsidizing losers' mortgages". He suggested holding a tea party for traders to gather and dump the derivatives in the Chicago River on July 1.[57][58][59] A number of the floor traders around him cheered on his proposal, to the amusement of the hosts in the studio. Santelli's "rant" became a viral video after being featured on the Drudge Report.[60] Overnight, websites such as ChicagoTeaParty.com (registered in August 2008 by Chicagoan Zack Christenson, radio producer for conservative talk show host Milt Rosenberg,) were live within 12 hours.[61] About 10 hours after Santelli's remarks, reTeaParty.com was bought to coordinate Tea Parties scheduled for Independence Day and, as of March 4, was reported to be receiving 11,000 visitors a day.[61] According to The New Yorker writer Ben McGrath[55] and New York Times reporter Kate Zernike,[45] this is where the movement was first inspired to coalesce under the collective banner of "Tea Party". By the next day, guests on Fox News had already begun to mention this new "Tea Party".[62] As reported by The Huffington Post, a Facebook page was developed on February 20 calling for Tea Party protests across the country.[63] Soon, the "Nationwide Chicago Tea Party" protest was coordinated across over 40 different cities for February 27, 2009, thus establishing the first national modern Tea Party protest.[64][65] The movement has been supported nationally by at least 12 prominent individuals and their associated organizations.[66]

he Tea Party is a grassroots movement that calls awareness to any issue that challenges the security, sovereignty, or domestic tranquility of our beloved nation, the United States of America. From our founding, the Tea Party represents the voice of the true owners of the United States: WE THE PEOPLE. Many are credited to be the founders of this movement; however, it was the brave souls of the men and women in 1773, known today as the Boston Tea Party, who dared to defy the greatest military might on earth. We are the beneficiaries of their courage. The Tea Party includes those who possess a strong belief in the foundational Judeo-Christian values embedded in our great founding documents. We believe that the responsibility of our beloved nation is entrenched within the hearts of true American Patriots from every race, religion, national origin, and walk of life who share a common belief in the values which made and keep our beloved nation great. This belief led to the creation of the modern-day Tea Party. Many Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, and Independents alike identify with the premises set forth by the Tea Party Movement, which is striking a chord and ringing true with the American Spirit. We stand by the Constitution as inherently conservative. We serve as a beacon to the masses that have lost their way, a light illuminating the path to the original intentions of our Founding Fathers. We must raise a choir of voices declaring that America must stand on the values that made us great. Only then will the politically blind see and deaf hear! By joining the Tea Party, you are taking a stand for our nation. You will be upholding the grand principles set forth in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights



1. Illegal aliens are here illegally.

2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable.

3. A strong military is essential.

4. Special interests must be eliminated.

5. Gun ownership is sacred.

6. Government must be downsized.

7. The national budget must be balanced.

8. Deficit spending must end.

9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal.

10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must.

11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory.

12. Political offices must be available to average citizens.

13. Intrusive government must be stopped.

14. English as our core language is required.

15. Traditional family values are encouraged.

So wearing clothes from the 18th century while participating in a parade makes you a #snip#?? oops I meant tea partier

Seriously the original people that participated in the boston tea party must be rolling in their graves.

The current tea #snip# are a complete opposite of what the original tea party movement stood for.
