    It's a movement that is racially biased as a result of the socioeconomic realities of the group but I don't think it is racist.
    You used the butafter what you really meant instead of before.
    I don't think the tea party is racist, but they are racist, is a regular but monkey. You reversed the order.

    They'll say

    Then they will proceed to paint them as racists. It's called a but monkey (sometimes a however monkey)
    Thanks Laura Ingraham.
    Well, someone did paint them all racist in this poll, someone who prefers to remain hidden, a trait that could only be accomplished by a mod. Let's see, who hasn't voted in this poll?

    Well that's news to me, and that might explain the anonymous vote.

    I should stop wherever I want to stop. By saying, "but they have racist members" explains why some people perceive the entire movement racist (which neither I nor anyone else in the thread seems to believe). The emotional responses to such a statement are nonsensical from my perspective since we all agree that there are racist people in the Tea Party. In a thread about Tea Party racism it makes sense to mention racist tea partiers. Sorry.

    I honestly don't think that is the case HERE in this thread.

    I think everybody is referring to the "Tea Party is racist" "evidence" as NOT indicative of the actual movement.

    Dismissing the racist argument against the movement.

    HERE in this thread.

    I don't think its "code" or anything in this particular thread.

    Huh? I said the group is racially biased because of socioeconomic realities, as in that the group is mostly comprised of white people who are not impoverished. I also said that I didn't think that made them racist.

    Re: Is the Tea Party racist?

    This is a bad question. It cannot be a yes or no question. Is the Tea Party racist as a whole group, and a racist "party"? No... Are there racists in the party and group? Yes.

    Laura Ingraham: But Monkey
    The Laura Ingraham Show - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The segment called "But ... Monkey" takes someone's sound bite and divides the words before "but" (usually something positive or complimentary) from the words that follow (usually something negative or critical) with a screeching monkey sound. Other variations of the monkey cited include the "Having Said That Monkey" and the "Double But ... Monkey."

    The thing is, it shouldn't even be an issue.
    Do we go around asking if the boy scouts are racists? Of course not, but I'm sure we could find some bigots in the boy scouts.
