The tea baggers ain't racists. It's all them not white folks who don't come to the tea parties who are the racists.

Oddly, no racist signs or klan members.
Not so odd really...

Just everyday people voicing their disdain for big government.
Yeah... not so much. Just a bunch of fools shaking their fist at socialism while the other hand is wide open taking their own government handout all while crying about higher taxes despite 95% of them having had their taxes reduced this year. Just every day folks who have a transparent agenda...

Infiltrator spotted

Another liberal moron trying to pull shit
:biggrin: Looks like the libs failed bigtime with their little infiltration call FIZZLE!!!.
LOL! Good thing they had some guys pulling security at the Sacramento event.

The fake/or not Nazi is just sick.

I actually felt embarrassed for the lefties as this a-hole was pulled from the Sacramento stage. Is this, and other attempts to infiltrate and misportray, the best response they could come up with to the Tea Party rallies?

The only time I encountered a Tea Party rally myself was at the tail end of the huge one they had in DC last year. It was the most family friendly, hell, overall friendly demonstration I have ever seen in DC. And this is coming from someone who HATES demonstrations in DC for the traffic issues and, usually, the trash they leave behind. I have no complaints about the civility and the good neighborliness of those who come out for Tea Party rallies!

It will be no wonder the lefties will lose big time in the elections later this year. They have lost the respect of all ordinary people in their rush toward a quick overturning of American principles.

SOmething’s weird here. These T-people look very mean. Way to mean just because of taxes and playing the Obama blame game. They look more like people that never got laid, were called stupid by their parents all their life, and got took in one of those get rich scams where u send some guy in Africa $5000, and he promises to send u back twice that. These people are mad, but it goes much deeper than the election of Obama. They probably felt this way starting with the GW Bush era, but calling GW a commie would have been unpatriotic. They have no problem calling Obama a commie. Now THAT is the question to ask them, because Obama has not degraded their life one bit from previous presidents. Nor has Pelosi for that matter. All these people need serious couch time…

In the past they have voted like idiots, gotten what they deserved, and not cannot accept THEY themselves are their own worst enemy.

It seems to me like the Tea Partiers are springing up all over the place. Why don't you just go to a Congressional town hall or a rally and ask them yourself.

The only ones I have met are damn mad about the fiscal irresponsibility of government first and foremost, but you might just meet someone who expresses additional opinions.. unlike anyone you might encounter in forums such as this one.

Is this racist viewpoint that you hold really all that funny?

Perhaps you, too, might actually go to a Tea Party event and see what people are coming to the events for and what they are about?

White NBC Reporter Confronts Black Man at Tea Party Rally: 'Have You Ever Felt Uncomfortable?'

By Brent Baker
Fri, 04/16/2010 - 00:42 ET

“There aren't a lot of African-American men at these events,” NBC News reporter Kelly O'Donnell, a white woman, told Darryl Postell, a black man at a Tea Party rally held Thursday in Washington, DC, pressing him, in an exchange she chose to include in her NBC Nightly News story, to address her prejudiced assumptions: “Have you ever felt uncomfortable?”

Postell rejected her loaded premise that race must divide Americans: “No, no, these are my people, Americans.”

Video

O'Donnell's story noted “skepticism over how the Tea Party is judged and labeled,” letting an attendee assert: “We're not racists, we're not any of the above that people claim us to be. We're ordinary citizens that love our country, and we're fighting for it.”

Over on ABC, Jonathan Karl highlighted how “many of them blamed us, the news media.” A woman demanded: “We want honesty from you. We want fair time from you. We want you, the media, to represent all the people, not just a certain portion of the people.”

Mexicans are busy building things. Asians are working in offices. Africans are breaking into the cars of the teabaggers.


A more accurate guess is probably that Mexicans, Asians, and Africans can't relate to this whole teabagging thing. The tea party uprising happened when the country was all white people. It's hard to feel a connection to the tea party uprising of the past if your family's race wasn't respected at all until very recently.

Really? You didn't look very hard (pics 5, 6, 11, 12, 15, 17, 20, 23, 25).

Why do you separate Americans by color? People are people.

I want that mission accomplished poster!
give me 10x. Love them!

but honestly, most signs are not as bad as I thought they could be. No obama Hitler reference, no obama commits genocide references. no obama will kill all of old people reference (oh wait maybe one). but perhaps I'm just too desensitized now from all the name calling in the last year or so, all those signs don't evoke too much emotions anymore. they feel just bland.

Damn genetic defects:



Bunch of bigots, morons, and racists.
Bigots, morons, and racists because a woman holds up a sign against gay marriage and one against Democratic party leaders?

Many people who have nothing against gays are opposed to gay marriage. The argument for gay marriage is that people who love each other should be able to get married if they want. To deny it is homophobia.

Question: should Mormon and Muslim Americans be allowed legal polygamy? What about hippie families who want group marriage?

I hope you're not a bigoted polyphobe.

By the way, a lot of tea partiers would accept gay marriage if it was passed as a law. Many, apparently including this woman, don't like judges making law.

Exactly. Sure, there are idiots who attend these tea bag protests, but every group has them (need I remind people of the "Obama will buy my gas!" lady?). The mainstream media (and many posters here, it would seem), rather than focusing on the message, tries to paint all of these guys as backwoods, racist hicks.

And before one of the usual suspects pipes in with the usual "Bu...Bu...Bush!" retort, YES -- his spending was insane too and people should have been protesting that as well.

:rolleyes:

FFS, get a grip. How is a sign saying basically "Marriage is between one man and one woman" make this lady a "bigot, racist, and/or moron?!?!" You may disagree with her, but she is entitled to her opinion just as much as you are. Her sign contained no racial slurs nor was it inflammatory. Is that the best you guys can come up with? Seriously? "They disagree with my view, so they MUST be bigots!"
