tea party

Liberal stereotypes are falling left and right. Last week we had the specter of conservative black men revealing that they saw no discrimination in the Tea Party. This week was have conservative gay men revealing that they felt more welcome at the Philadelphia’s Tea Party than at gay bars.

There may be hope for Barney Frank yet.

Republican Congressman Mike Pence defends the Tea Party by doing something Democrats are loathe to do – he quotes the Founding Fathers. (Of course, libs think Franklin Roosevelt was the Founding Father, so it’s not surprising that they don’t quote Thomas Jefferson).

“Yesterday we learned of a new effort by Democrats in Washington to attack American citizens who speak their mind and peaceably assemble as ‘extremists or radicals.’ Demeaning tea party citizens, or other Americans who are simply saying ‘no’ to runaway spending, takeovers and bailouts, is beneath the dignity of a great political party and it smacks of desperation.”

And Pence was just getting warmed up.

What’s that? They weren’t undercover? They were real members of the Tea Party? And they didn’t discover any vile racism?

Well, crap, we probably won’t be seeing this on the evening news.

Why, slap us naked if Nate Whigham and Herman Cain aren’t black. What the hell are they doing supporting the Tea Party?

We have two choices:

Either they’re self-loathing blacks or they’re good American citizens who care about what’s happening to their country.

We know which one we believe.

UPDATE: Was Shirley Sherrod railroaded? Was the tape unfairly edited? She’s now been fired and is lashing out at the White House, the USDA, Fox News and Andrew Breitbart. We’ve added some information to the bottom of the story, and Breitbart’s response as well.

The NAACP calls the Tea Party racist. Then they turn around and have a black racist speak at their 20th Annual Freedom Fund banquet. Definitely a case of the pot calling the kettle black, as it were.

“He had to come to me for help,” said Shirley Sherrod, George State Director of Rural Development for the USDA. “What he didn’t know while he was taking all that time trying to show me he was superior to me was I was trying to decide just how much help I was going to give him,” she said. “I was struggling with the fact that so many black people have lost their farmland and here I was faced with having to help a white person save their land — so I didn’t give him the full force of what I could do. I did enough.”

Got that? She discriminated against farmers because they were white.


The statement itself is shocking enough. But what’s even worse is that the audience – members of an organization that’s raison d’etre is supposedly to support equal rights – didn’t object. Didn’t react. Didn’t boo. Didn’t hiss. Didn’t seem to object at all.

Of course, a firestorm erupted after BigGovernment.com made the video public and Sherrod has now been forced to “resign.”

But the once proud NAACP, which warmly greeted anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan and put out the welcome mat for America-hating Marxist Jeremiah Wright, has lost the ability to call itself an equal rights organization.

(Read all of our Shirley Sherrod stories, and we have a lot of them.)

Hilary Shelton, Senior Vice President for Advocacy for the NAACP, seems to have a little trouble with the truth. Especially when he’s discussing that raaaaacist Tea Party.

On July 13, he said he’s never been to a Tea Party because he was “afraid to go”.



On July 16, he said he attended the ObamaCare Tea Party rally, you know, just to monitor things.

Liiiiiiiiiar.

What we have here is a basic contradiction between what NAACP President Ben Jealous said on Thursday and what he said earlier in the week. Damn inconvenient videos.

Politico reports his Thursday comments:

NAACP President Ben Jealous said Thursday that the resolution passed by the group on Wednesday does not call the tea party “racist.”

No?

A portion of the resolution does indeed characterize the behavior as “racist,” but Jealous said Thursday during an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that the resolution was not intended to condemn the entire movement as such.

“We aren’t saying that the tea party is racist,” Jealous said. “What we’re saying is that with their increasing power comes an increasing responsibility to act responsibly…and to call out when they see those things on those signs.”

And furthermore:

Asked if he thought members of the tea party are racially insensitive, Jealous responded: “No, not at all.”

Of course, this is a little hard to square with the video clip above in which Jealous says the Tea Party is a direct descendent of white supremacist groups.

But never let it be said that Jealous let truth get in the way of a good line of bullshit.

One of these videos shows the violent rhetoric so feared and reviled by the Obama administration. The other just shows some people expressing their views.

Have fun figuring out which is which.

carrie fisher-princess leia

We suspect that Princess Leia can't think straight because her buns are a little too tight.

Carrie Fisher, the manic-depressive actress who played Princess Leia in Star Wars and then got into drugs, alcohol and electro-shock therapy, loves her President and hates you evil, racist Tea Partiers.

PopEater.com reports the manic-depressive details of a recent Fisher interview:

Is there anyone you haven’t met that you’ve always wanted to?

Obama.

I’m surprised you haven’t met him.

I know. I love him. Hopefully I’ll meet him sometime. I’m just happy he exists.

Do you think Tea Party is just people who are pissed that there is an African American president?

Yup, and the fact that they chose to call themselves “teabaggers,” which is slang for a certain act involving b***s. It sort of says a lot. I would say a mouthful. Looks like it’s very upsetting for them, but he’s brilliant. The thing is, he’s half white but that’s still not enough — for them it’s all white or f**k off. I think we don’t deserve him and certainly teabaggers don’t deserve him.

Well, there you have it. Whatever it is, if Carrie Fisher is against it, we’re for it.

Our post-partisan President used the vile term “teabaggers” in reference to anti-tax, anti-big government protesters. You know, the ones who –- according to numerous polls — enjoy the support of a majority of the American people.

The term is apparently so embarrassing that White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs can’t imagine himself asking the President why he used it.

If embarrassment is the new standard by which subjects are discussed in the oval office, we would imagine that the two men are unable to discuss most of what this President has done since he took office.

Luke Russert is amazed – absolutely amazed – that black Republican candidates want to be endorsed by the Tea Party people. ‘Cause they’re racists, you know.

“These folks are actually soliciting support from the Tea Party,” Russert said, “a group that a lot of folks have claimed to be racist against African Americans. These folks actually see them as the ones they want in their tent as a path to victory.”

Far as we’re concerned, there’s only one thing worse than young Mr. Russert being shocked by the thought of a black Republican. And that would be his remarkably mangled syntax.

This is not the original video we had up; it was “removed by user.” We’ve replaced it with one that is on the same subject, but sadly, not as good.

Immediately after the Times Square bombing, left wing pundits quickly tried and convicted some unknown, unnamed group of right wing domestic terrorists.

But when it was discovered that the crime was committed by yet another Muslim terrorist, the story immediately flipped to “The poor terrorists will become victims of rightwing racism.”

So which group do you fall into? Right wing domestic terrorist? Right wing racist? Or both?

Consider this story to be an object lesson in media bias. Bias against conservative tea parties and in favor of liberal coffee parties.

This is a typical photo of the handful of “coffee parties” that popped up in opposition to the success of the massive “tea parties” that were held from coast to coast. Nine people. Not what you’d call a big success.

coffee party

Yet here’s how Newsweek reported the story:

When Annabel Park imagined what it would be like to head a new national political movement, here is what she had in mind: a coming together of engaged, intelligent citizens who had tired of the angry rhetoric and accusations of the Tea Partiers; Americans of all political persuasions joining in a spirit of equanimity to discuss the nation’s problems, and maybe even share a laugh. It was this beautiful vision that danced in Park’s head on a recent Saturday as she made her way to Busboys and Poets, a cafe in Washington, D.C., for one of nearly 500 Coffee Party meetings taking place nationwide that day.

…All of a sudden Park was a political leader—of what, she didn’t quite know—and the target of right-wing fury. Conservative bloggers unearthed—scandal!—that she had once briefly worked for The New York Times and supported Sen. Jim Webb, a moderate Democrat from Virginia. One online commenter accused her of being a “Chinese agent.” The notoriety didn’t really hurt: the group now has more than 200,000 members, and every status update Park posts gets about a million views.

Got that? A handful of people at a handful of coffee parties is somehow extrapolated into a movement of 200,000.

And just for comparison purposes, here’s the CNN report that turned a tea party crowd of 20,000 people in Searchlight, Nevada into a mere “dozens or hundreds.”

Liberal media bias?

What do you think?

MSNBC reporter Kelly O’Donnell, the whitest woman alive, was convinced that racism must run rampant at tea party events. The result is the following conversation with Darryl Postell, a black tea party protester:

O’Donnell: There aren’t a lot of African-American men at these events.
Postell: (laughing) Right.
O’Donnell: Have you ever felt uncomfortable?
Postell: No, no, these are my people, Americans.

That’s a great answer. No doubt about it. But here are 18 other answers we’d love to have heard:

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time Joe Biden speaks.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time I see the way Chris Matthews looks at Barack Obama

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time Nancy Pelosi walks through Washington clutching a ganormous gavel.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time a Congressman discusses a tickle party

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time a bunch of Democrats talk about how low taxes are.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time Barack Obama says he wants to be clear.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time a climatologist announces a “stunning finding.”

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time Harry Reid smiles, although I’ve yet to see that happen.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time someone says I should be saying “thank you” for raising taxes while calling it a “tax cut”.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time I hear the words “windfall” and “profits” used together.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time Barack Obama goes off teleprompter.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time Maddow and Olbie say “tea bag” with a knowing smirk.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time Nancy Pelosi gives a “gift to the American People”.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time Joe Biden says “but seriously” or “mark my words”

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time Nancy Pelosi says “We have to pass the bill so we can tell you what’s in it.”

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time reporters start pushing “advocacy journalism”.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time the leader of the free world bows to dictators and snubs allies.

– Yes, I feel uncomfortable every time socialists tell me that taking my money is fair.

Is ACORN corrupt? Undoubtedly.

Socialist? Absolutely.

Classy? Not so much.

Bertha Lewis pretty much proves all three in this short video clip.

irvine tea party crasher

This report just in from our Orange County, California correspondent:

A couple of infiltrators showed up towards the end of a Non-Partisan Tax Day Tea Party rally in Irvine, California. It was pretty obvious they were hoping to make the rest of the attendees look bad by displaying their lack of taste for media cameras (Associated Press, LA Times and CBS were in attendance).

The “bebe” girl had an innocuous Palin-esque “hopey changey” sign, but her preppily-dressed escort looked particularly out of place with his huge vulgarism mounted on a stick.

After the picture was snapped, the two were quickly confronted by some members of the audience, then called out from the stage by the speaker, who called them “party crashers” and said they represented the face of the “left”.

They then beat a hasty retreat, exiting stage left.

Keith Olbermann said the tea partiers are racist. Frank Rich said the tea partiers are racist. The Huffington Post said the tea partiers are racist. Jon Stewart said the tea partiers are racist.

Oh, hell, it would be quicker to list the libs who haven’t said the tea partiers are racist. It’s just become part of their mantra.

But black tea partiers beg to differ.

tea party not racist

We didn’t see this photo on the nightly news. Did you? Of course not. It wouldn’t have matched up with the approved liberal narrative.

Tammy Bruce, our favorite lesbian liberal-turned-conservative talk show host, has a great way to show your support for the tea parties. And it costs about ten cents.

Just imagine millions of cars crisscrossing America’s highways and byways adorned thusly. And then imagine how it will drive Olbermann, Maddow and Matthews crazy.

CNN, the same network that sent the leftist wacko Susan Roesgen out to report on the original tea parties (see video clip), has actually offered up a positive report on the latest tax protests.

It embedded producer/reporter Shannon Travis with the Tea Party Express as it barreled one thousand mils down the highway toward toward D.C. It took a couple days for Roesgen to be taken off the air for her biased tea party report. Let’s see how long Travis survives after posting this positive story:

[H]ere’s what you don’t often see in the coverage of Tea Party rallies: Patriotic signs professing a love for country; mothers and fathers with their children; African-Americans proudly participating; and senior citizens bopping to a hip-hop rapper. … It is important to show the colorful anger Americans might have against elected leaders and Washington. But people should also see the orange-vested Tea Party hospitality handlers who welcome you with colorful smiles.

There were a few signs that could be seen as offensive to African-Americans. But by and large, no one I spoke with or I heard from on stage said anything that was approaching racist.

Almost everyone I met was welcoming to this African-American television news producer.

Who knows? Maybe this is a sign that CNN has finally figured out that fair and balanced is more than just a slogan and it’s the reason people watch Fox.

Nah. Who do we think we’re kidding?

The lovely and effervescent Maxine Waters hates those violent tea partiers. And the language that they use? Shocking, absolutely shocking, to a sweet innocent old lady like Maxine. Why, she would never approve such violence nor language.

Hypocrisy, thy name is Maxine.

A few years back, some wit asked the question, “What’s the world coming to when the biggest golfer in the world is black, the biggest rapper in the world is white, and the biggest guy in the NBA is Chinese?”

Tiger Woods, Eminem and Yao Ming have all hit on hard times since that observation was first made, but worry not because nature abhors a vacuum and the Democrats have come up with a couple equally unlikely occurrences:

Story #1: Christian militia member is a Democrat

“Most of the indicted militia members accused of being anti-government extremists have active voting records, a check with area voter registration offices showed yesterday. One is a registered Democrat, and the party affiliations of the rest could not be determined. Jacob J. Ward, 33, of Huron, Ohio, voted as a Democrat in the 2004 and 2008 primary elections.”

Story #2: 40% of Tea Partiers are Democrats or Independents

The national breakdown of the Tea Party composition is 57 percent Republican, 28 percent Independent and 13 percent Democratic, according to three national polls by the Winston Group, a Republican-leaning firm that conducted the surveys on behalf of an education advocacy group. Two-thirds of the group call themselves conservative, 26 are moderate and 8 percent say they are liberal.

You know those dangerous, violent Tea Partiers that the democrats keep talking about? We think we’ve figured out who they are – other Democrats.

There are two very important lessons to be learned from this video clip.

One, the media is so busy making up phony conservative-on-liberal violence that they completely overlook authentic liberal-on-conservative violence. Consider this convincing evidence of liberal media bias.

Two, if the liberal perpetrator of this crime had been smart, he would have bitten off the finger of someone who actually needed a finger bitten off (see photo). Consider this convincing evidence that liberal central planning always results in misallocation of resources.
