    Re: Tea Party shows true colors

    After reading the words of Mary Frances Berry, one of the more prominent leaders in the far-left black political scene, one need no longer merely surmise this. In an astonishingly frank email to Politico, Berry declares that the tea-partiers-as-racists meme is “an effective strategy for Democrats” despite the fact that she believes “there is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans.”

    Here’s the full quote:

    “Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.”

    In reality that meme died its natural death several years ago. Except for those, pardon the pun, tardy to the bash the Tea Party, party. It's all "brand new" meme material to them. And apparently the supposedly "different" drummer.

    While the author may be a learned man the article is his viewpoint/opinion. It seems that the gentleman has spent very little if any time in actual research which would include meeting attendance with participation and extensive interviews with different independent Tea Party groups.

    The main misconception promulgated by his op-ed is the error in believing that Obama or social cause is the main impetus for TP existence.

    The TP began before Obama stepped on stage and had original basis with the Bush administration and Congress regarding taxation and expenditures .. period; The cause remains the same to this day. Any policies are based in economics. ( Taxed Enough Already )

    There is no social agenda except that manufactured in the minds of hyperbolic unethical political rivals who throw crap against the wall hoping some of it sticks.

    Every political movement has a very small number of vocal idiots and impersonators; to impugn a vast number of people due to the actions of so few is skullduggery at it's finest; much akin to saying every motorcycle rider is a drug running outlaw or everyone one who does not think as I is the reincarnation of Karl Marx, Lenin, Stalin. Mao, or Pol Pot; or Hitler.

    One can always do better than to chum the waters with rhetoric .... anything written or said without solid basis is reduced to rhetoric ... we all know the value of that.

    The problem with any article of this nature is that it tries to confirm what we want to believe of a rival while doing nothing to spur one on to do independent research to try to prove our own perceptions incorrect ( trying to prove oneself wrong is the fulcrum of investigation and knowledge )

    Thank you. I hope you post the same thing when some right-wing asshole posts the "DURRR TYPICAL OBAMA VOTER" video and it's that dumb black lady talking about how Obama was going to pay her taxes.

    Here's something from TEAparty darlings Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.

    Ted Cruz does it again - Manu Raju and Burgess Everett and John Bresnahan - POLITICO

    By keeping the Senate open this weekend, Cruz has allowed for 20 or so of Obama's choices for the executive and life-long judicial to pass.
    Otherwise, the GOP had them blocked.

    Re: Tea Party shows true colors

    All the DEMs needed was TWO, not two dozen, righTEA Senators named Lee and Cruz to fumble the ball and allow the Senate to stay open this weekend.
    Now NObama gets his 24 executive and judicial nominees.

    4th paragraph especially in this link:

    Deal reached to vote on spending bill - Burgess Everett and Manu Raju - POLITICO

    Thank you Troll-Whore! I bet literally "everybody" at DP hopes you post the same thing when some left-wing asshole (add MORON) posts the "DURR TYPICAL OBAMA SUPPORT CUP" video and it's that dumb black lady talking about how Obama was going to pay her taxes and you were going to be the support cup.

    Now here is the real question.....................

    Was that moron troll-whoring supposed to make some sort of sense? Outside of troll-whoring DURR-ness?
