    There were 3 keynote speakers who are black/ african-american at the DC TEA party 9/12/09. How does that make the TEA party rasists? I also counted a little over 100 black participants in the crowd. I don’t see any keynote speakers who are white for the panthers or black congress or NAACP.

    What’s the problem? Didn’t Clinton say that Senator Byrd’s KKK memebership was just to get the votes necessary to get him elected? So it may NOT be a bad thing after all.

    Methinks you doth protest too much. Let’s take an example, shall we? Mark Williams, a spokesman for Tea Party Express Inc., commenting on the NAACP’s asking for condemnation of the racists IN the Tea Party (important point: they did not say the Tea Party was racist): “You’re dealing with people who are professional race baiters, who make a very good living off of this kind of thing. They make more money off of race than any slave trader ever.” And, in a mock letter to President Lincoln: “Colored People have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!… Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government “stop raising our taxes.” That is outrageous! How will we Colored People ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?” Previously, he claimed African-Americans were too stupid to get out of the way of Hurricane Katrina: “They didn’t have the necessary brains and common sense to get out of the way of a Cat 5 Hurricane and then when it hit them- stood on the side of the convention Center expiring while reporters were coming and going.”

    Is this the political arm of the anti-federalist patriot movement, sometimes known as the Militia of the Republic of [pick a State], as Sinn Féin is to the IRA? In some areas the militia is KKK, but around here they’re mostly former military of all races. Many were discharged for drugs, alcohol, or just being to violent to be a Marine, but they swore by God to defend the Constitution, & if the parole officer says they can’t have a gun, they’ll get a crossbow. The militia envisioned in the 2nd Amendment was the armed store owners on the roof during the riots. (Unless the time has come to overthrow our oppressors? Are they bad enough to deserve what Ceauşescu & Mussolini got?)

    ALL priests are pedophiles? ALL Muslims are terrorists? ALL dogs hate cats? ALL American workers are union members out to destroy capitalism? (Well, only 8% of workers are even IN unions, so that would be tough.)

    When people join “radical” movements however, they do tend to be more “birds of a feather”. The more radical the group, the more singular the membership.

    The degree of “radical” in the TEA Party does fluctuate around the country- so it might be best to pay attention to the individual groups, not necessarily the “whole”.

    I think this more shows the state of those that hang on the coat tails of popular movements. mr. kkk at the back with his hands in his pockets. ultimately there still is alot of racial tension that is being taken advantage of in the run up to this election, the same old game, goin on since I can remember. sad.
