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.

Somehow I’m just not surprised. They’re great at parroting stereotypes, but when asked for specifics? Yeah, not so much.

I can’t decide who are more pathetic: the blacks brainwashed into this talking point or the whites suffering from inexplicable guilt, overwhelmed with political correctness, and desperate to be part of a cause that has no basis in fact.

BuckeyeSam on February 16, 2014 at 9:38 AM

Good point, I almost missed that. I guess women are a race now and not a gender. It’s just to hard to keep it all straight anymore. *sigh*

Stragen_AK on February 16, 2014 at 9:38 AM

I admire Webb for having a little fun with them.. we might as well have fun mocking them, cuz we’ll NEVER change their minds, period. That entire group of citizens has a permanent “victim mentality” reinforced 24-7 by 99% of the media, Hollywood, advertisers, etc and future generations of their offspring will (unfortunately) be exactly the same.

It will never change.

Dr.B on February 16, 2014 at 9:44 AM

What these ignorant morons don’t realize is the Tea Party is AMERICA!
The left wingnuts have done a great job of labeling us as extremest, racist, homophobes, ect. These same illiterate morons who positively hate the Tea Party stand with all the dirty scum who occupied city parks across the country. These occupy lovers are the problem and we must change this kind of thinking.

2eagles on February 16, 2014 at 9:44 AM

And in calling Tea Party members “racists” (some of whom are blacks and Hispanics), they reveal their racism and bigotry (not to mention their ignorance). You can’t make this stuff up.

Should’ve also asked them: what are the Tea Party principles? Felonious Bill knows. He used them to win a second term.

RobertMN on February 16, 2014 at 9:45 AM

To be fair, if you asked a bunch of liberal TV pundits or columnists the same two questions, you’d get the exact same mindless reply (though the more nimble ones might throw out the Tea Party members who spit on John Lewis after the passage of ObamaCare, a report debunked four years ago by Andrew Breitbart but which is still taken as evidence-free Gospel on the left of the Tea Party’s racism….)

They cannot answer the question without showing their own racism and stereotypical thinking. They are too weak-minded and simple to take anyone as an individual, they must categorize everyone meet as belonging to a “group”, with all the labels, identities, and characteristics already neatly attached.

Tea Party racism is fully displayed by their protests for “smaller government” and “lower taxes”, which simply means they desire to hurt most minorities and poor urban whites.

A significant number of Americans aren’t fortunate enough to be born with an inherent desire for labor or the natural abilities to control impulses. These people depend on government-provided assistance to live a comfortable life, despite their natural disadvantages.

The Tea Party just wants to further victimize the victims.

JellyToast on February 16, 2014 at 10:00 AM

The roll of establishment Republicans can not be underplayed in all of this. The Republicans have their own war with the tea party so, in effect, they’ve allowed the Democrats and the MSM to slander both the tea party people and their intentions. If you were to take a poll and ask people if they supported elements of the tea party agenda, it would win overwhelming support. The establishment knows this which is why they’ve taken it upon themselves to create this image of prejudiced, unhinged, unthinking, and out of the mainstream people that no one would want to associate with. In the meantime, people know others who are in the tea party and they know they’re none of that. They’ve found out their mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, uncles, neighbors, co-workers, and fellow parishioners. So, when the polls come out, they’re liable to repeat, like these people, that they believe the tea party is racist, but only based on reports about others and not about things they have actually seen or heard.

It’s quite amazing how the propaganda campaign the Democrats started and continued, has become the truth, based on nothing. However, I maintain this campaign would never have been this successful, had it not been for the establishment totally abandoning the tea party and refusing to defend them from this slander. I’m not saying the establishment has to agree with the tea party, but they should be able to agree on more than they disagree unless, of course, the establishment is more concerned with their power than doing what’s right for the country.

What we need, sadly, is someone other than Sean Hannity to be playing this. Why? Everything he touches gets dismissed. I realize that he’s the guy who sent Webb out to do this a la Griff Jenkins for Greta or Jesse Waters for BOR. Whoever commissions it, it out to be interjected into the straight news segments on Fox.

Of course, it will never appear on another network. So maybe a combination of straight news on Fox and on to the social media.

All that said, I wonder at what point young people–who love to see themselves as nonconformists–realize that they’re unwittingly parroting media, academe, and DC “wisdom”. Jonah Goldberg says he makes this point whenever he speaks at a college.

These freaks throwing out the “racism” charge when it doesn’t exist are doing a “boy who cried wolf” type of thing. When anything and everything is “racist” people are just going to tune out. Real, actual cases of racism in our society will be more likely to be ignored.
