Video – liberal examples of Tea Party racism

posted at 9:31 am on February 16, 2014 by Jazz Shaw

Our colleagues over at Town Hall have an enlightening video up this weekend which provides a look inside the inner workings of some progressive protesters. A reporter asks a number of them whether or not the Tea Party is racist. The answers are a rapid series of unanimous nods and enthusiastic answers in the affirmative. One in particular really expands on the subject.

“I think they’re racist against blacks, Hispanics… I think they’re racist against women.

In the interest of due diligence, the reporter asks them to provide a few examples of these terrible, racist tendencies. At that point, the responses become a bit more… vague.

“Ummm…. no, because I’m not thinking about them right now. Uh… let’s see…”

“It’s their reaction to us having a black president that makes them racist.”

“I suppose the thing that makes them, uh… I actually can’t talk right now.”

Here’s the video to pass the time on your Sunday morning. Enjoy.

I love that a black guy interviewed these morons. That probably threw them right there, and they didn’t know how to react. If it were a white guy interviewer, after they figured out that they couldn’t think of one example, they would have just started yelling at him at how racist he is.

You really can’t fix left-wingersstupid, can you?!

Why does being called racist get people so upset? It has as much impact on me as being called a weenie.

It is an attempt to demonize and dehumanize you by claiming you are dehumanizing other people by classifying them as ‘less’ just because of the color of their skin. It is an attempt to link you to all of the horrifying race related crimes down through history, from slavery to the Holocaust.

It is an extreme insult. Anyone who throws it around casually and without substantiation is a repulsive toad who deserves to be beaten.

If you’re for small government you’re racist. You know like Bill Clinton./

We will meet these challenges, not through big government. The era of big government is over, but we can’t go back to a time when our citizens were just left to fend for themselves.Bill Clinton-1996

Remember all you lousy, knuckle dragging racists what a racist is. It’s anyone who looks like he might say something even vaguely related to race/ethnicity or gender (even) that some self-righteous liberal doesn’t approve of.

Stop taking that meaningless political word-tool seriously!

I like to point out that saying minority X is, on average, less intelligent than the mean is derogatory only for those who believe that the less intelligent are their inferiors. Which, of course, is Holy Writ to the very moderately intelligent who populate the Left.

Claiming superiority based on group intelligence is pretty much of a losing game except for Ashkenazim racists, anyway.

You’ll have to forgive them. They get their scientific information from posers like Bill Nye.

Holmes, who said he’s had news reporters call him from across the country, clarified his comments for the Advertiser.

“I said that Clarence Thomas was an Uncle Tom because he went to college on an affirmative action program,” Holmes said. “I said since he’s been on the U.S. Supreme Court, he has voted against every affirmative action program to help poor people get an education. That’s the reason I called him an Uncle Tom.”

Holmes called Thomas an “Uncle Tom,” and listeners heard him appear to say that he didn’t like Thomas because he was married to a white woman.

See, if you don’t think every minority should be forced to have the same thoughts, beliefs, and ideas… you’re RACIST. Oh, and we should attack minorities for not conforming to the stereotypes we have.

Think blacks deserve equality and freedom even in thought/belief? Racist.

Think like the KKK did/does that blacks must be limited and controlled? Not racist.

If those are the definitions; call me racist again.

As I pointed out, President Lyndon Johnson, the Father of the modern-day Liberal Progressive Democratic Party, was the 1st to declare White Democrats had to manipulate and ‘enslave’ these ‘uppity ni&&ers’ by getting them hooked on handouts designed to ‘quiet them down, to prevent them from using their newly-gained political power to become a major force, and to keep them voting Democratic (party)”for the next 200 years”.

If THAT is not ‘RACIST’ then nothing is!

easyt65 on February 17, 2014 at 12:23 PM

Many blacks claim they are ‘victims’ and that WHITES owe them.

1. Yes, they are victims…of THEIR OWN design…

2. No, WHITES do not owe them anything — THEY OWE THEMSELVES!

Lyndon Johnson recognized after the Civil Rights Act became law that minorities – blacks – finally had ‘something they never had before’ – POLITICAL POWER, & he recognized what a threat they could be. He said NOW ‘WE’ HAVE TO DO SOMETHING OR WE’ WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO STOP THEM.

He proposed giving them something (to appease and pacify them), but ‘not enough to make a difference’. Just like American Indians sold Manhattan for something like $24 worth of beads, blacks sold their newly acquired freedom/POWER for welfare, food stamps, free cheese, Obama-phones, Medicare, Medicaid, unemployment, etc! They worked so hard to get their freedom from off the ‘rural’ plantations and actual chains only to exchange them for ‘urban’ plantations, white Democratic Party ‘massahs’, & the virtual chains of dependency on government hand-outs from the devious and manipulating white Democrats, Johnson and those who have followed.

easyt65 on February 17, 2014 at 12:36 PM

Now, every time blacks go to the voting both and vote for the politicians who promise to keep the ‘freebies’ coming they are really voting to keep this political form of slavery going. Since Johnson came up with this scheme, since he created the initial plan to build and perpetuate this form of slavery, has the plight – the fortunes – of blacks improved? NO…and that is by design! Yet black continue to vote for them again and again while holding on to the liberal LIE that it is the GOP/Conservatives who are racist and want to use them!

There is an old saying – Doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results is he definition of ‘INSANITY’!

Minorities still have that political power and the potential to be that thread to Democrats Johnson feared…they just have to realize they Ave been used, stop the cycle, and act to seize / use that power to finally control their own successes / future!

(…be that THREAT to Democrats…)

For a more scholarly discussion of the phenomenon, read Professor Horowitz’s text, Hating Whitey and Other Progressive Causes.”

HA! Love the Billy Madison clip. In all honesty, the current Republican leadership is not equipped to handle outreach in minority communities. They have NO message to deliver there, we have completely ceded the high ground of the civil rights movement in this country to the party that fought the hardest to suppress it. Alfonzo Rachael (PJTV) does a GREAT job of explaining this FREQUENTLY. He’s right in that we need to focus more effort (as individuals and as a movement) to impact the culture, and deliver the messages we want through cultural means. Until that happens we will continue to suffer at the ballot box. We espouse the theory that government can’t be the solution, that it is in reality the problem. so why in the hell do we spend so much time trying to ‘win’ the government? Conservative politicians need stop the slide leftward, and do what they can to reverse it… sure, and we shouldn’t give up. But the TRUE victory will come when we reach audiences outside the political junkies that are listening already.

FrostyTheDMan on February 17, 2014 at 2:26 PM

What do you mean the GOP has no message for minorities?! How about the TRUTH, of Johnson’s words & schemes & 50 years of Democratic party lies, deceit, & ‘slavery’?! And study your history – the Democrats fought hardest against the civil rights movement while creating the KKK, a group that burnt crosses and intimidated and hung blacks. Know your history – Johnson ended the focus of trying to stop the civil rights movement and even the efforts of the KKK with his plan to make blacks believe they were suddenly standing with them when what Democrats were doing was ‘enslaving’ them all over again. Know your history – it was a Republican who started the NAACP, not a Democrat.

A bigger question than ‘why are we trying to win government’ is why do blacks keep voting for continued Democratic party ‘enslavement’ every election? Part of that is 50 years of brainwashing and lies – they need to be enlightened…educated…’freed’. As the saying goes, “Free your mind & your @$$ will follow!”

Agreed, the GOP needs to stop the slide to the left & reverse it…but that is impossible. The current GOP leaders either can’t or won’t do so, so it is up to us to get the ‘Washington Establishment’ Republican ‘leaders’ like Boehner, McCain, & Ryan out of office & put TRUE CONSERVATIVES who have not betrayed Conservatives in their places!
