edit: 5 bucks says some conservatives come in here operating under the assumption that this guy is making the argument that there really were only 5 black people at the event.

I made that joke once. It was not well received.

Tends to happen when ya strike a nerve.
The fact I was joking was missed by some too. See, I have been to a Tea party rally(in Grand Rapids, just to see what it was like), and I know that while there are not alot of blacks there, there definitely are some. I also don't think that is the Tea Parties fault, since blacks tend to, for whatever reason, be more liberal, and the Tea Party is conservative, it's not surprising blacks don't make up much of it.

I chuckle every time I hear one of them deny the racist element that pervades the Tea Party. I have walked among them at a few Crazy Lady Michelle Bachmann "rallies." Since I look like them, they don't hide their actual agenda. I've heard what they say when the cameras and microphones aren't there, and it would fit right in at a 1950's KKK rally. That they can fool a few Uncle Toms to hang out with them, doesn't change their real motivations, at least from those willing to take an honest look.

Pervades is way too strong a word. Are there racists in the Tea Party? Sure. Are they a large part of it? Not really. Are there racists in any large organization? Yes.

You should have thought to get that on tape. That sure would've been better proof than all the hearsay that goes around.

Is there some portion of "what they say when the cameras and microphones aren't there," that isn't clear?

There are racists in the NAACP. That doesn't make the TEA party or NAACP racist organizations.

When I would walk through the anti-war rallies in Washington Square Park, I often heard liberals discussing their plot to destroy america and execute all conservatives. This is clearly true because I just said it.

Does having their picture taken here say anything about them?

That photo is wrong in so many ways -- not the least of which is the fact that no one in the photo seems to understand that.
I could be wrong, but it seems to me that a person who would want to be in such a photo, is trying to hide something.

edit add: And again look at the preprinted signs "Do we look racist?" There is something definitely wrong with going to a restoring honor rally with such signs.

I can't believe they actually made those signs.

How convenient. So many people get caught these days saying things they are sorry for later because they didn't know they were on camera or mic. It never seems to happen at tea parties.

Obvious the three came together and made up their signs before arriving. Do you think they paid the gentleman in the middle to do the photo ops?

Thank you. Yes they did come together. They are good friends. I read some of their comments somewhere.

Wadda quandry.
