    Which has what to do with whether the Tea Party is racist or Chris Matthiews claimed it was?

    It's a sizeable movement. That many people, there's bound to be a few racists.

    Not everybody who doesn't like Obama for any reason is a TP member, but there are plenty of people there who oppose Obama for any reason, it became the catch all. "I dislike Obama, therefore I am in the Tea Party." Sad as it is to say, there are still racists in this country. Sad as it is to say, those people don't like Obama because he's black.

    I didn't say all TPistas were racist, or that it was a racist organization. In fact, I said it wasn't. Maybe you should back up that there are NO racists whatsoever in the TP, since that seems to be your position.

    I am generally pro-tea party, but why ask a rigged question? Just to remind everyone of the media bias?

    Their local networks are going strong; candidates they supported - from Rand Paul to Justin Amash, from Ted Cruz to Chris Christie - are rising stars nationally; the various bachmanns that attempted to hijack their momentum had succeeded only partially, and appear to be in a full retreat mode now....So yeah, I would say the tea parties are quite relevant.

    Seems an easy enough question to answer. Is the tea party racist? No, not explicitly. Does it have its share of racist individuals? Without a doubt.

    Proportionately, not nearly as many as the Democrat Party.

    I am not a partisan hack, so do not invest any ego in defending turf.

    If you wish to inhabit such political territory where everything is simplified to the extreme and you view the world as a game of cowboys and indians, be my guest.

    I'm not sure that others here have yet recognized your elitist superiority. For the time being you may have to accept that when you post self serving, unsubstantiated nonsense, there will be rebuttal. Oddly, that is why the forum is entitled "Political Debate."

    The bolded also applies to the demorat party (or any sizable group), thus it is simply a general purpose BS assumpton. You ceratainly implied that the TP has more than the average number of racists, it is not my contention that absolutely no racists exist in the TP, simply that it is not, in general, a racist organization. I dislike most of Obama's polices yet I am neither in the TP nor a racist.
