Bob Parks: ‘In Search of People of Color’

In Tea Party on September 14, 2010 at 8:07 pm

If you believe the left, and their willing accomplices in the media, the Tea Party Movement is led and composed almost entirely of white racists.  Janeane Garofalo probably said it best;

“Let’s be very honest about what this is about. It’s not about bashing Democrats. It’s not about taxes—they have no idea what the Boston Tea Party was about, they don’t know their history. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism, straight up. That is nothing but a bunch of tea-bagging rednecks. And there is no way around that.”

When mass numbers of American citizens gather together, all across the country, calling for constitutionally limited government, tax reform, fiscally responsible government, a balanced budget, an end to runaway government spending, etc., and the only response from the opposition is  “RACIST”, the Tea Party movement has won the argument.  They have won the argument just so long as they do not get sucked into legitimizing the ‘racist’ charge by seriously trying to disprove it.  If they do, then the focus of the debate shifts from ‘should Americans be content with an out of control government’, to, ‘is the Tea Party racist’.

Now, I do understand that the charge of ‘racism’ is serious one, and should be answered, but what’s the best way to do that?  Since the charge is absurd, treat it as absurd. Bob Parks, of Black and Right, has done just that.

This is so true!  To the Jackasses, the only thing worse than peasants with pitchforks, are peasants with pocket Constitutions.

Lookin’ at millions under a circus tent
Watchin’ a jackass chase a dumb pachyderm
Oh what a show!
Tappin’ on any shoulder that I can find
Of anyone on there who might change their mind
It’s time to go.
To the real world outside with those pirate ships
The drunken sailors with dirty lips
That rule the night
Shoutin’ don’t be afraid of those wicked men
There’s more of us than there are of them
Come join the fight! ……
