Where Is The Racism
We have all heard it, “The Tea Party is racist!”, it is nothing more than attempt to marginalize the movement of the people.
Today a post at a far left blog in Madison went off again on the Tea Party and the blogger again labels the whole movement as racist. This time his post referenced an incident with the Big Sky Tea Party Association, the president was ousted by his board of directors over the weekend for appearing to condone violence. Reading his post made me stop and think, is the left correct about this.
We have watched the mainstream media for nearly two years now say this over and over again, with no proof that racism is a mainstream of the Tea Party. The facts show the vast majority of the Tea Party movement has rebuked such offensive rhetoric. Even the $100,000 that Andrew Breitbart has offered as a reward for tangible proof that a racist act was committed by Tea Party members is still unclaimed.
Yes there are fringe elements within the Tea Party movement who have displayed racist tendencies, but that is what they are – fringe elements.
The use of the racism argument is done because those who hate the movement are unable to argue against the ideas, logic and facts of the movement. Nearly 1/3 of Americans now identify themselves with the movement, this is a scary statistic for both the MSM and liberals around America, they for too long have been given a free ride and now that people are standing up to their values and idealism they don’t have a logical way to defend themselves so they had to resort to the race card.
