    That I confined my statement to the past does not reveal anything about my view of the present.

The TP was largely libertarian in origin.
    Absolutely false, RWA's have by definition high tendency towards racism.

    Is there a point to pointing me to a group of images largely created by right wingers?

    The concept of "Right Wing Authoritarians" having a tendency towards racism is completely ignored, even though you and I have discussed Altemeyer before.

    An update to Altemeyer's "The Authoritarians" about the baggers:

    12. Prejudice. Studies have found that authoritarian followers are among the most prejudiced
    people in society. It is the nastiest aspect of their ethnocentrism, and one they insistently deny—to
    others and to themselves. And they really do not realize how prejudiced they are, compared with
    others, because they associate so much with other prejudiced people. So their prejudices seem
    normal and perfectly justified to them.

    Racial prejudice appeared at many of the Tea Party demonstrations, in the form of signs,
    banners, and tee-shirts—just as it did during the 2008 campaign after Sarah Palin energized the
    social conservatives. Tea Party spokespersons attributed these racist attacks to outsiders, “a few bad
    apples,” or fringe members of the group. However Carl Paladino, the Republican candidate for
    governor of New York who was enthusiastically supported by the Tea Party as a “100%
    conservative,” was discovered on April 12, 2010 to have emailed racist photos (and also a picture of
    a woman having sex with a horse) to a long list of friends. One doctored photo depicted the
    president and Michelle Obama as a stereotyped black pimp and prostitute. Another described an
    African tribal dance as the Obama inauguration rehearsal. A third picture showed an airplane
    landing behind a group of black men, with the caption, “Holy ****, run niggers, run!"
    Paladino quickly disassociated himself from the emails he sent, saying “That activity is not
    Carl Paladino.” He didn‟t however say who it was instead, but still insisted he is not a racist. You
    can be pretty sure that the rank-and-file of the Tea Party doesn‟t think he is either. But the point
    here is, he sent these pictures to so many associates, some influential people in the movement had to
    know what he thought. And it was apparently all right with them too, for he got a rousing Tea Party
    endorsement.
    The vitriol directed at Barack Obama seems unprecedented to many observers. It may be
    that most Americans now see him as the President of the United States who happens to be African
    American. But to many Tea Partiers he is a black man/N-word first, who has no right to be
    president. Instead, he is a Muslim, a foreigner, a gangster, a fascist, a communist, even the anti
    Christ. And they will probably never see him as anything else.

    It is beyond your capabilities to explain this in a detailed, non-superficial manner, so I won't even demand it.

    Too bad. Your initial statement was true. The Tea Party WAS founded in libertarian principles. It is no more.
