Tea Party Racism-Part 1
Tea Party Racism -the Ugly Truth about the White Party.
The Tea Party can be described in a plethora of adjectives to determine exactly what their platforms might be which are assortments of conflicting ideology and out an dated belief system.
This rag tag party being used as a front by Republicans to detract, delay and disturb while creating a circus atmosphere which initiated during the initial health care reform bill town halls. The strategy is to have you believe the Tea Party is a third party grass roots movement that accepts all people, but lets dissect what they really stand for here and who they represent.
Tea Party Racism against Blacks
The Party Racism is evident although now muffled by the GOP, are extreme racists carrying signs depicting President Obama their own President as a witch doctor with a bone through his nose. The tea party signs were often peppered with the N word, a hangman’s noose around an Obama effigy and many examples of sheer racism. This all culminated along with the spitting and N word calling to black legislators walking into the Capital to sign the HCR bill. This was enough to turn Americans away from the these demonstrations egged on by lawmakers on the balconies who incited the crowds to make more noise. You would have thought you stepped back into the 1960’s when a black man dared go into a restaurant who was met with the same disdainful and arrogant white welcome.
Tea Party racism is proven by their demographics which is:
white, male, conservatives , anti birthers, anti-health care, and of course the well known anti- I don’t want to pay my taxes people. This presents a mirage of a viable third party which is actually a blend of GOP activists calling themselves the Tea Party.
The Tea Party faithful are also old with the major mean age group being 45 and up and there are not attracting many young voters because they have no platform and no solutions. The Tea Party is an angry old fart party that has no direction except to be led by the GOP in some nasty campaigns to derail the democrats. The Tea Party is being used but is hardly effective as a voice other than anger at every aspect of life.
The tea party of 2010 – 2011 does not resemble the initial Tea party of Boston other than they wore masks to hide their agenda.
It reminds us of one of John McCain’s supporters a white woman who stood up and called Obama a Muslim and today McCain supports the expulsion of any non-white immigrants legal or not in his state of Arizona. Pretty scary stuff for 2010 where regression is taking place and fear mongering GOP activists wish to revert us back to the good old days of the noose and the KKK.
In a University of Washington study of ethnicity and race the results showed that the Tea Party is a white dominant force with racial attitudes that see blacks as lazy, unintelligent and distrustful. The hysterics of the The GOP’s Tea Party racism make it more of a white right wing band of dissenters who wish to suppress and target blacks, women, gays, taxpayers and the poor which is most of the demographics of the Democrats. The Wiser survey of 2010 examined many states about race after the first black history was elected in history.
Quote: ” For instance, the Tea Party, the grassroots movement committed to reining in what they perceive as big government, and fiscal irresponsibility, also appear predisposed to intolerance. Approximately 45% of Whites either strongly or somewhat approve of the movement. Of those, only 35% believe Blacks to be hardworking, only 45 % believe Blacks are intelligent, and only 41% think that Blacks are trustworthy.
Perceptions of Latinos aren’t much different. While 54% of White Tea Party supporters believe Latinos to be hardworking, only 44% think them intelligent, and even fewer, 42% of Tea Party supporters believe Latinos to be trustworthy. When it comes to gays and lesbians, White Tea Party supporters also hold negative attitudes. Only 36% think gay and lesbian couples should be allowed to adopt children, and just 17% are in favor of same-sex marriage.” See: University of Washington Survey 2010. on Race and Politics.
Tea Party Racism against Jews
A post on Sarah Palin’s Facebook page which has since been “comment sanitized” is this example before it was removed:
Racial or ethnic slurs. “America’s greatest threat is Marxism and International Jewry/Zionism! We will never regain our Liberty and Freedom until we expel every Jew from America!” This was in response to Sarah Palin’s shot that the Tea Party was not racists on her page.

“Just so we’re clear, Conspiracy theories about Obama’s refusal to release his college records—lunacy. Conspiracy theories about Trig Palin—journalism.”

Tea Party Racism against Healthcare for Americans
Iraq has a universal health care system but Americans are not allowed to have health according to the Tea Party racial objections to those who are too poor to pay for health care. Most of the poor have died without the care or medicine that they deserved and a chance to live but it all boiled down to money.
To be a member of the Tea Party faithful you have to have a ” racism attitude” on anything that detracts wealth from the white, upper middle class of conservatives and banks that feel they are entitled to a tax free state and to enslave others to work for them. The Tea Party that seems to be a hate group on any health care reform presented by Democrats reared an ugly truth about themselves and the priorities of keeping the wealthy rich and to obtain more riches. The racism extends to preventing the poor and the jobless to have any health care at all. Universal health care seems to be only for Iraq citizens but not for non-white Americans.
Tea Party Racism against Paying Taxes
This racism includes the so called self professed “Independents” who believe they don’t have to pay taxes which is the group that Sarah Palin belonged to in Alaska. These people are independent such as the Joe the Plumbers praised by John McCain who is the guy who didn’t pay his state taxes, didn’t pay child support to his own child, and had worked as a plumber under the table. In short Joe the Plumber is a no good bum who does not contribute to society at all. The independent voter refuses to pay their share of taxes and yes we all do not like paying taxes but that is how society works. If they choose to be independent of the US system of benefits for taxes then they should move to Mexico. In fact they can move completely off the planet to be independent
Tea Party Racism against Serving the President’s Army
Lt Colonel Terry Lakin birthers face court martial for refusing to serve in the military until the President produces a birth certificate.
This is Terry Lakin’s Video for refusing to follow his orders in the military, and he wraps himself around the constitution. However members of the Tea Party racism groups are all for funding billions into Iraq and Afghanistan wars putting the US into bankruptcy. Like Sarah Palin Lt Colonel Lakin believes that is is fine for President Obama to fund the two wars but he’s just not taking orders from a black President and this is very clearly a court martial offense.
It is also offensive to the US soldiers who gave their lives and is a danger to those who are currently serving the President’s military on the front lines while Lakin takes a vacation from the war on his flimsy yet disgraceful political stunt.
