This is a fascinating video because a TEA party member made it to refute claims that the TEA party is racist, but he makes racist comments all throughout the video without being aware that he is doing so.

I guess that is the nature of racism though. If you know you are making an unfair judgment of an individual based on their race, then you aren't racist. You know you are making unfair judgments.

Remember that line from the movie Jerry McGuire? "You had me at 'Hello'"? He lost me right at the start of the video with the mocking affect at the begining ( "Mmmmmm. Mmmmmmm.").

I like how he says Barak Hussein Obama like he's a tasty morsel.

"Negro race pimps?"

Funny how his basic argument is "where not racists because we are trying to protect America from your kind." Um... isn't that racism?

It tells me very quickly where someone comes from if when referring to the President, they use his full name and put emphasis on his middle name.

If the president was a white dude named Bob Smith, there wouldn't even be a Tea Party. Of course it's racist.

But because Barack HOOOOSANE Obama is in the white house, racist pieces of **** like this guy want to "take back their country."

yes that's it, it's all because a half white half black man was elected president, it couldn't possibly have anything at all to do with his policies.

So when President Bush was in office, all of those opposed to him were racist?
Or is it only if you disagree with the ideas of a black man like obama?

I wonder how all those black people that are in the Tea Party can even sleep at night knowing how much they hate themselves for being black.

I would suspect that this is something created by a non Tea Party person that is trying to discredit the Tea Party.

If I showed up at an obama rally and started chanting kill all the white people, would you think I was for real, or that maybe I was trying to cast doubt on the crowds true intentions.

Take it for what it is. The Tea Party is against the policies of the over the top liberal left because of their ideas, not because of their color.
What is going on here is an attempt at painting all Tea Party members as racist in hopes that others will not join for fear of being racist themselves.

Tea Party is not Racist, the racists are those that oppose them.

You mean the people constantly complaining about old white men?

That had nothing to do with age, sex, or race.

Hi Red.

One of the things I always tell my friends that sets me apart from conservatives is that I value truth above all else, whether it lands on my side of the argument or not. If the truth does not land on my side of the argument, I will admit that my viewpoint was wrong and then I will do what is relevant to clean up a problem if that is necessary.

I rarely see those things happen with people on the far right. Sadly, sometimes, with liberals I see the same deer-in-the-headlights stunned response when they are proven wrong.

You have a point.

People who go on about "old white men" really are not in the best position to talk about other people's sexism or racism without looking like hypocrites.

You mean when the nation had an unemployment rate of 5%, and the economy was doing well...... probably working. It wasn't until Democrats had a year and half running congress before the economy tanked and the deficiet doubled.

You mean the wmd's that Kerry, both Clintons and a host of other Democrats were claiming to be in Iraq?

what you have yet to realize is that all presidents, dems and pubes, are pieces of fecal matter. The best recent president was Clinton, who was at least able to balance the national budget during his presidency, which Bush destroyed upon election to office.

actually it wasn't Clinton who balanced the budget even though he gets credit for it, the House of Representatives are charged with that responsibility, so the credit should in reality go to Gingrich for that.

As to destroying the budget; since Nancy Pelosi took office in 2007 the Democratic congress added 5 trillion dollars to the national debt from 2007-2011 when she left office, the Democratic lead congress destroyed the budget.... but if we want to blame the President it is a fact the current President has amassed monthly deficits which equal or surpass Bush's yrly deficits..... those are facts.

oh I almost forgot; I have known politicians in general are pieces of fecel matter, some tend to stink more than others..... such is life.

See, this kind of conversation is pointless and silly because all presidents are douche bags and not looking out for the best interests of the people. If you still believe that either the Republicans or the Democrats have some magic pill for America that we should take and that will fix everything, you are sorely mistaken. Historically the Democrats have been more in tune to the wishes of the people than the Republicans and more willing to favor the poor over the rich. But now a days they are in the same bed with the pubes, so it doesn't really matter does it? Both parties are hopelessly corrupt.

I don't disagree for the most part, there are very few politicians I find useful, Ron Paul for President baby!

Rotoshave, oh dear, you're blowing to bits the presumption of certain elements of the far right that all liberals are starry eyed kool aid drinkers.

But that's O.K., because they'll retreat to their fallback position, that the left is simply disenchanted with Obama.

It's what I love about them - the ability to be concvinced of mutually exclusive things at the same time.

I take my comment back. That guy didn't compare slavery to what the Irish went through so I don't think it's actually you.

Sounds more like you are describing the left...... isn't it the left calling for the down fall of coorperations while at the same time calling for jobs to be created? That's just one example off the top of my head that comes to mind.

compare slavery to what the Irish went through? Oh you mean when the English tried to commit genocide on the Irish population and shipped thousands of Irish men women and children to the new world as slaves?

I can see how that historical record might not sit well with some.

Yep. The pubes are resilient, I'll give them that. They don't let logic stand in the way of getting it done!

A certain segment of the left, not the dems generally (they love corporate money and financing as much as the pubes do). Anyways, how are the two mutually exclusive, especially given that strengthing small business and local economies would create more jobs, better job security and, by the way, would help the environment?
