If The Tea Party is Racist Someone Better tell Black Tea Partiers

Updated on June 30, 2010

I Hate The Media

Tea Party Racist? Don’t tell that to the Black Tea Partiers

As someone familiar with the Bible, I’ve said and have heard others who know the Good Book say, “Satan isn’t very original.”

No, Satan isn’t. Which brings me to the oft repeated lie the left uses to demonize. Anyone who doesn’t think like them is automatically a racist.

Liberals aren’t very original.

For some examples of a Political party and their hidden racism, read "The Politician" and my review of it - highlighting the TRUE racists in American Politics:

The left uses a target-and-demonize strategy for their “enemies.” If anyone on the left disagrees with a political figure, they instantly become stupid. If they can’t make them stupid enough, they have to be silenced. They did it with George Bush, they’re doing it now with Sarah Palin for example.

The laugh a minute with this group is – whenever I have the opportunity to have any type of back-and-forth with a liberal, I’ve usually tried to ask, “If George Bush is so stupid, who did you vote for, George Bush or John Kerry?” If I have the time and patience, I also ask them about the brilliance of Mr. Joe Biden – who had to plagiarize his papers to graduate from college. We won’t go into the things that comes out of this guy’s mouth.

Anyone with a fourth grade reading level or above knows Kerry’s college grades were worse than George W. Bush’s grades at Yale. Who’s the dummy here? John Kerry or those who voted for him?

Of course our current President Obama is supposed to be such a genius. Yet upon closer examination, one still doesn’t know his grades and actually what his collegiate academic record really is. Add to that what the lost stream media will not report regarding the constant and frequent gaffes, remarkably uneducated remarks and just plain senseless things Mr. Obama says and does.

Visiting one fact -- Mr. Obama is only a great speaker when he has a teleprompter, even needing to use one at a grammar school. At least George Bush managed to speak at grade schools without using one of those – yet the rant is still how “dumb” George Bush was and they still say, is. Well, after checking out the countless Obama gaffes, any thinking person would know, this whole-Bush-is dumb thing should be a very a dead argument:

 If George Bush did even one thing depicted in the Obama videos, where Mr. Obama looks in many cases disgracefully foolish and sorry to say, very stupid -- it would have been the lead off for CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC and all of the lost stream media outlets for months. Then they'd show it for months more on Letterman and their ilk. If the President Obama videos (and that Hub link doesn’t even have a comprehensive list) doesn’t convince even the worst Kool-aid drinker that this man not only isn't all that brilliant, but he also has few social graces, then I just hope and pray they forget to go to the polls the next time they vote for President. 

The left – Pelosi and Reid et al – immediately attempted to demonize the Tea Party movement, from its very first public inception with name-calling. What were some of those lovely names? Nazis (even though the left frequently held rallies with signs calling Mr. Bush worse than Hitler), “astro turf” supporters, red neck dummies and of course the ever present “racists.” Mr. Genius Obama even said he'd "never heard of them" recently.

Yet – there have been studies showing the demographics of the Tea Party movement and it's really, really bad news for the left.

Turns out, the Tea Party movement is made up of a good cross section of Americans:

Turns out that Tea Partiers tend to be smarter than your average bear:

And turns out, they make more money than most Americans. Yeah, according to the Left, they're the EVIL TAXPAYERS of the country.

Also very troubling for the Left: if the Tea Party is racist – then somebody better tell black Tea Partiers because according to Bill Maher, they’re in the middle of a KKK rally and don’t know it! Quick, give me my cell phone, I have to call 911!! These poor souls are in grave danger!

      I'm trying to figure out what "article" you're talking about because I did a search and I can't find anything at all to support what you're talking about. Here's one article to actually refute what you're saying specifically:

      Here's the Bing search I did:

      My search was: Black Tea Party Candidates Complain.

      Sorry. Zero evidence for what you're attempting to falsely claim.But thanks for giving it a try and leaving your comments. It actually afforded me another opportunity to discredit this liberal lie.

      A with a dozen black tea partiers you get eggrolls, but not a racially diverse party. Today alone in the newspaper was an article about Black Tea Party Candidates complaining because the GOP and Tea Party will not support them financially. So,now who's calling the Tea Pot black.

      MFB III - point - however - look to the Democratic Party. Seriously, George W. Bush was the first President to ever appoint Blacks to other than "token" posts in an administration. At the time - under the first 4 years of the Bush Presidency - blacks bought more houses than at any time in our history.

      John Kerry had ALL white men on his staff when he ran. How many blacks were on John Edwards staff? Read the book "The Politician." It's all smoke and mirrors by the Democrats and it's a lie that the Republicans are KKK rally organizers. Senator Bird is a Democrat. Al Gore's father was one of the Senators who voted AGAINST segregation. George Wallace almost lost his life because he fought so hard against segregation - he was a Democrat. The list goes on.

      NOW - having said that - the Republican Party is HARDLY the "Savior" of this country. I'm registered Republican because I HAVE to be registered either as a Republican or a Democrat in order to vote in primaries. The Republican Party is hardly perfect. In fact - I'm totally disillusioned with the Republican Party - BUT I think right now they are a far sight better than who took over the Democratic Party. I don't always think the Democratic Party was as corrupt as it is today.

      And there IS corruption on BOTH sides - no question.

      As to your comments about how many Blacks were at this rally depicted here - it's not just the numbers. Watch the video again. These people who were interviewed are intelligent - well-spoken - they're not idiots. Don't you think if they thought that these people - obviously outnumbering them - were SO racist - that as Bill Maher tried to proclaim was a KKK rally - they'd know it? This video also sheds light on the fact that the movement isn't made up of racists as you and other claim. That's the other underlining point to this entire thing.

      I want to come to a place where lies are put to rest. I want to come to a point where there can and SHOULD be disagreements - but lies need to be STOPPED. It's the differences that makes this country strong. Right now - this administration wants ANYONE who disagrees with them to be silenced and left out of any legislation. That's not American.

      MFB, what kind of ratio are you looking for??? 1:1? More? If a minority group of people make up a minority of the people at the rally, does this bother you? Do you want to see an all-black display? Would you then feel it represented more accurately the overall demographics of America? The logic seems to be that so long as there are any white middle-aged men at these things there is no way we could possibly be looking at a cross-section of American sentiment, which is mostly white, and has a heck of a lot of middle-aged men in it. Unless you are willing to assign racial attitudes to lifeless, thoughtless numbers and statistics, I fail to see the racism.

      O.K. I saw hundreds not thousands of white folks milling around, and no blacks, except for the handful which I could count on one hand, of 4 0r 5 blacks being interviewed. And not one of the black folks were holding signs or wearing tea party garb??

      One was probably the hubby of the first lady who spoke and maybe the second or third one was their son, so hey you got five blacks to step...up. I would hardly call that the black tea party movement, it is more like selective servitude to make a point, bought and paid for by Fox network. We are not that blind or stupid...sorry. Nice try!!~~MFB III

      Got any more black folks in your videos??? let's post em. convince me!

      You are absolutely right - sadly -- goldstandard!

      Great Hub! The media must stick to their narrative that the Tea Party Movement is only about racism. The media is incapable of debating the issues, so they resort to race-baiting and demagoguery, unfortunately.

      Tony thanks for stopping by. I wanted to make a "one stop shopping" experience for those of us who are sick to death of liberals constantly repeating the lie - "Bush is stupid." I honestly never really knew how to answer to that because he was President for eight years and Bill Clinton was a lot of things, he wasn't stupid though. SO - now that we finally have a new President, I was stunned to find how many blunders the media has literally covered up! I shouldn't be shocked, but I was! Some I knew - but some were new to me! I knew President Obama has embarrassed the U.S. many times, but I was actually shocked to find out the "60 States" comment. I mean that PROVES he's an idiot. I'm so sorry to have to say that, but HOLY COW! No Conservative or Republican would ever, ever get away with such a brainless comment without getting hammered out of politics altogether. And that's just ONE - I found SO MANY! So I wanted to expose it here. I hope this gets read and passed on. Not because I think I'm so great - but we Conservatives/Christians/Constitutionalists need to have some ammunition when we always get that "Bush is stupid" thrown in our faces! Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment!

      cjv thanks for laying out the facts. I get so tired of the tripe the MSM tries to lay out to us. Anybody with a brain knows that the tea party is not some fringe group , but is actually becoming a real force for change on Capitol Hill. And that is a place that definitely needs some change !

      Hey SheriSapp - I am SO with you! Can the liberals say anything else? "Bush's fault, Bush is stupid." I sure wish their cult leaders would come up with other mantras because I'm getting so, so sick and tired of the same LIES. As I wrote, Satan isn't very original!

      Thanks for taking the time to stop by!

      Maven - you're right - I hadn't thought of it. Somehow the truth is making it through despite the efforts of the left! We all must keep beating the drum!

      Nicomp - very insightful - Liberals are held to a much lower standard. Everyone makes mistakes but the media - corrupt and I believe now it has become so corrupt it is evil - will only hammer conservatives or Republicans or Tea Partiers. Soon they'll go after Independants because they won't toe the liberal party line.

      You are absolutely right, when the left protest, even when three people show up - the media painted them as patriotic. Thousands show up all over the country, month after month and the mass media tried everything they could to demonize, trivialize but only after trying desperately to ignore their very existence! Thanks for your comments!

      Thanks Pop - You said it perfectly. The left are lemmings - "inept at critical thinking." Show them a fact, they resort to personal destruction and personal slurs.

      I know I'm probably on some government watch dog list by now with my outspokenness -but if we ALL stand against this tyranny - we can peacefully remove these dangerous fools from office in Nov!

      Whats really astounding to me is that this clip was not left on the cutting room floor...It's the usual practice for the MSM to edit out whatever doesn't conform or comes into conflict with whatever their agenda is that week...which is usually left of center anything...

      Great observations we need to keep in front of us going into Nov...Thank you for this...Larry

      Spot on here. I am also sick of hearing just how dumb W. was/is. At least there is not doubt about his citizenship or his love for America. If Gore had been prez on 9-11, we would have probably responded by crying and begging those mean people to just leave us alone...please, and we hope our pleas don't offend you.

      Liberals are held to a lower standard by the media and the public. Democrats get a free pass when they mispronounce, misidentify, and misunderstand. It's all good when you mean well.

      We knew that death threats and insipid labels were applied to Bush by immature morons unable to make cogent points. No one had to tell us that. We were grown ups and we could deal with it. We know now that the Democratic leadership panders to their support base by denigrating the Tea Parties. Dissent was patriotic in the 1960's when they executed it. Dissent was patriotic when Gold Star mom Cindy Sheehan and hundreds of her sycophants camped out in Crawford, Texas.

      We are smart enough to recognize that conservatives have to work harder that liberals. We don't get a free pass when we screw up.

      Brilliant hub. The rhetoric coming from the main stream media (ha) and the left is based upon the same ignorance as racism. These people are truly inept at critical thinking. They are very adept at calling those that oppose them offensive and brainless names. As far as Obama is concerned, this brilliant orator can't speak coherently without a script. That's why he avoids press conferences. He's afraid. I love the way you write.
