    Re: Is the Tea Party racist?

    I'm not saying the party as a group is racist but there are racist people in the party.
    But saying that i found this hilarious: Teabagger uses racism to explain that the Tea Party is not racist. // Current

    I'm really getting this, thanks!

    From now on if anybody doesn't like Donald Trump I am going to argue it is because they are jealous and for no other legitimate reason. That'll shut em up. Who wants to be accused of being jealous?

    Can you really be jealous of a guy who has declared bankruptcy multiple times?

    I know a lot of Tea Party supporters, no one is a racist!

    And so the light finally dawned for you. Congratulations.

    Of course, some of the actions of the left do seem quite racist. Their insistance on continuing to force poor blacks into non-performing schools so they will be denied an education. During slavery, blacks were not allowed to learn to read. For liberals, nothing has changed.

    And then there is the constant whining from the left that there is no class mobility in the U.S. You can't improve you lot either socially or economically if you're black so for god's sake don't try. And if you do try, and succeed, the left will hate you.

    In fact, the left hates most blacks who are successful outside of certain left-approved fields. In business you better not succeed if you're black or you'll be hated.

    And then there's the very public, very vitriolic hatred of blacks by the left. If you're black and not a socialist, you'll be crushed. Lies are fine. Perjury is fine. Anything goes.

    Re: Is the Tea Party racist?

    Are some people who support the Tea Party racist? I'm sure there are, just as there are probably racists in a lot of other groups. However, the Tea Party in and of itself in no way advocates racism, nor is racism a part of their credo. As advertised, the Tea Party is about government accountability. They may be partisan and very agenda driven, but they aren't racist.

    Where are you even getting this from? We hate blacks so much that 90% of them are part of our party? That we elected one as our president? Where do you even get such a bogus idea?

    Every group has racist people. Thanks for the insight.

    But is the movement racist? Absolutely not. But there are crazies out there. Take a look at a post from a professor at UCLA about the Tea Party.

    The Tea Party people are no better than the Klu Klux Klan and the Southerners who lynched black men and attacked the black children trying to enter all white schools.
    Larry Simpson's Thoughts and Musings

    You tell me who the crazy one is.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    Liberals are racists. That's where I get the idea. Why do you want blacks in non-performing schools? Why do you not want to allow blacks to attend private schools, with, gasp, white kids by using vouchers? Why are you opposed to any changes in the school system that might irritate the liberal teachers' unions?

    I never said they didn't lie and hide it well. War is peace, up is down, Democrats will help blacks. Oh, and wasn't it a Democrat who praised President Obama, before the election, for being a well-spoken black man who was clean. I think it was Joe Biden. President Obama didn't frighten white liberals, either.

    Are blacks as a group better off now than they were forty years ago?
