    Seems like the interviewer was being racist by assuming the old fart (who no longer pays any taxes) was talking about black people.
    What, black people are the only ones who are on social programs?

    I just think they really wanted more of a rainbow organization. That gives more legitimacy to a national organization Have there been any black tea party members complain" Why oh why wouldn't they want black people? They don't like the music?

    Because we know the tea party is no more racist than the boyscouts of america or the democratic party. Saying it is a mostly white group is the same thing as saying it is a racist group. Why else say it?

    I'm sorry, bro. I try to be forthright here, and I would peg your general lean as far right. Maybe we have different definitions, but as far as I have seen you don't disagree with any of the usual far right positions on issues. And I haven't seen you give even a nod to the concerns voiced by the liberals here so that may be where your rep comes from.

    Just sayin.

    The angry veteran who fought for this country and hates communists? Or the man who spoke afterwards?
    I'll stand with either of them before I'd stand with a communist, though the threats were over the top.

    Besides the niggar sign?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    No it isn't racist it is race baiting.
    The democratic party is mostly white, so why point out the tea party is mostly white if it's not race baiting?

    Here is the site I grabbed it from.

    Poverty in America black poverty issues | America's North Shore Journal
    Rates are at near historical lows, but appear to be edging upward, advancing from 37% to 40% in the last eight years. It is the people who are in permanent poverty, the core, that ought to worry Americans. The data appears to suggest that despite some of the best economies of the last several generations, a group of Blacks failed to benefit from the successes. Single family households seem to be at the center of this, accounting for nearly 2/3 of those in core poverty.

This guy wasn't videoed becasue of his opinion, he was videoed becasue of the color of his skin. By definition, when the tea party uses someone in that fashioin they are using them as a token.
    Still didn't watch the video did you? Again, you are insulting the black people who do belong to the tea party. You are more or less saying they are idiots to belong to a group that the left insists on labeling as racist or "mostly white". You sir, are the one who is placing importance on skin color. Your side likes to video the tea party showing only white faces. So if someone wants to go out of their way to interview blacks, I have no problem with it.

Conservatives and Republicans did a masterful job of creating a grass-roots movement to run against Democrats as non-Republican Republicans. Between Republicans reinventing themselves and Democrats failing to manage the economy, Republicans have breathed new life into a flailing party.
    And the supposed hidden religious agenda is...where again?

    The 'Tea Party' as a political entity has been consistent. The message has consistently been for more efficient government and for fiscal responsibility. Frankly...those that hate the Tea party...thats OK...your world...your right...but until you put up ANYTHING by way of an effective message for changing the current financial trainwreck engineered by both parties in congress...you are just as culpable. And maybe worse.
