And I think the Tea Party isn't a racist platform; but rather one of pissed off people that was well captured by the Republican arm of the Republocrats and turned into political propaganda.



    You are right. The loud and out part of the tea party is a co-opted mess by palin and her cohorts. But the grass roots anger of folks like me is still there and will be seen this november.

    No evidence of political bias. You have to actually prove those things. And profit bias is a different animal. Sensationalism sells.

    Re: NAACP backs report that ties racist groups to tea party

    Here's who came out with the report for the NAACP.
    No racism against whites on their website. Not much anyway. This from there "About Us"

    I am going to talk briefly about the Tea Party phenomenon and why it is .... The Institute for Research and Education on Human Rights is asking all who can ...
    Institute for Research & Education on Human Rights

    We begin with an optimistic, yet un-blinkered understanding of our situation. The political landscape in the United States has changed considerably since IREHR's founding in 1983. Our long-held dreams for social and economic justice have become imbued with new hope in the future. More, the drive towards a truly multi-racial, multicultural democracy and individual human rights have gained new and powerful adherents.
    Nevertheless, racial discrimination against people of color, and housing and social segregation are facts of daily life. The overwhelming majority of white people continue to take for granted the relative privileges accruing to their skin color. Our government's many broken treaties with Native American Indian nations remain unrepaired, and anti-Indian racism plagues the individual and collective lives of this continent's original people. Bigotry, both the theologically based and the ordinary secular kind, continues against gay men and lesbians. Despite the many strides towards gender equality, women remain underpaid at work, too often mistreated at home and subject to the strictures of a patriarchal society. Reproductive rights remain at risk in many parts of the country. The worse aspects of nativism have become manifest in vigilante action, hate crimes on the streets, and mean-spirited legislation. Anti-Semitism continues to bedevil our society, both in its most overt swastika-emblazoned form as well as in the far more frequent assertion that the United States of America is, or should be, a Christian nation.

    Not sure I'm getting your objection.

    evidently she objects to women being paid equally to men.

    But there is lots of truth behind that charge--the dems have it in their party's self interest to keep blacks addicted to government handouts and the dem politicians. affirmative action also is subtle enslavement. I know a few bigots but they never whine about being seen by an Asian or Jewish doctor in the ER room

    ah more of that white guilt again, that and the mindless attitude that if someone doesn't buy into welfare socialism, they must be clueless about economics. Lets talk about individual economic knowledge. If you are good at it you don't need others paying for your existence

    being black has nothing to do with it.
    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.

    Perhaps, I don't think anything is going to come of it. I think they're mostly just going to vote for the other side of the teeter-totter. Supporting the status quo will not change the status quo.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
