The NAACP condemns the Tea Party for being racist. The Tea Party says, “Hey, we’re not racist.” Then they turn around and put up a racist sign comparing Obama to Hitler and Lenin. Suuuuuuure, you’re not racist.
Of course it makes perfect sense to compare President Obama to Adolf Hitler. The Führer was well-known for establishing progressive racial policies in Nazi Germany. Here’s one such enlightened remark:
I don’t see much future for the Americans … it’s a decayed country. And they have their racial problem, and the problem of social inequalities … my feelings against Americanism are feelings of hatred and deep repugnance … everything about the behaviour of American society reveals that it’s half Judaised, and the other half negrified. How can one expect a State like that to hold together?
It hard it to believe anyone could be so disingenuous as to suggest comparisons to the worst proponent of White supremacy and racial purity the world has ever known and the nation’s first African-American president isn’t a deliberate and terrible insult.
It’s SO precious to see Black conservatives rush to proclaim the Tea Party isn’t racist. Of course it means denying the evidence of the Tea Bagger’s signs, t-shirts that proclaim “Yep, I’m a racist,” cursing and spitting on Black Congressmen and defaming the president by comparing him to Hitler, the worst White Supremacist and racist the world has ever known.
The depths of dishonesty the Tea Party apologists are willing to stoop to despite the evidence of the signs, protests, billboards, bumper stickers, t-shirts proclaiming “Yup, I’m a racist” and the undeniable presence of racists within the Tea Party speaks volumes of how they will nod and wink at bigotry.
The NAACP was absolutely right issuing a resolution condemning the extremist elements that have latched onto the Tea Party protests to advance a White supremacist agenda. What is a civil rights organization supposed to do when a political movement advocates a return to traditional values, but since it seems unable or unwilling to purge the racist extremist element from their ranks, one of those values appears ominously to be rolling back racial progress. A survey by the University of Washington found respondents who believe the U.S. government has done too much to support blacks are 36 percent more likely to support the tea-party movement than those who are not.
“We felt the time had come to stand up and say, ‘It’s time for the tea party to be responsible members of this democracy and make sure they don’t tolerate bigots or bigotry among their members,'” NAACP President Ben Jealous said. “We don’t have a problem with the tea party’s existence. We have an issue with their acceptance and welcoming of white supremacists into their organizations.”
America’s most renown racist, David Duke (rhymes with “puke”) has defended the Tea Party from those charges. I watched his video just to see what a complete mess this broken down loser is now. The botched plastic surgery is one thing but what’s up with that hair, Davey?
Being a Tea Party member or supporter means never saying you’re sorry about racism. Not only do they do tolerate racism, it seems they support it as long as their sensibilities aren’t offended.
A friend of mine wisely described the Tea Baggers as follows: Teabaggers = a group of white people who decided to get involved into politics once a black person became president.
If the Tea Partiers don’t like the racist label hung around their necks there’s a real easy to get rid of it. STOP HANGING OUT WITH RACISTS, YOU IDIOTS!
Sleep with dogs. Wake up with fleas. It’s kind of simple when you think about it.
