Baggers in Our Midst

It's clear to anyone with a brain that the Tea Party "movement" (it's mostly sponsored by corporations and Republican fundraisers) is racist as hell. At your typical tea-bagging event, you'll see ugly depictions of President Obama and many people have overheard the N-word and other racists remarks at them. But the baggers really, really, really, really, really want you to believe that they aren't racist. They love to point to the two black tea-baggers who come to their events; recently some "federation" of these wackos recently "expelled" some guy who wrote a racist editorial to show just how not racist they are.

Seems to me, if you have to go on overdrive to show how not racist you are, then you are probably pretty racist. After all, this whole "movement" was started when that crazy CNBC "reporter" started ranting about the relief program targeted at people whose mortgages were underwater. He called them LOSERS! Again, it was clear to any honest thinking person that by losers he meant poor people ... meaning black and other swarthy individuals. The bankers on Wall Street who wrecked the economy? They apparently were not losers. Get it?

There's an article in The New York Press this week about the tea bagger movement in NYC. And they're constantly trying to convince you how not racist they are. It's a really funny article because it shows how ridiculous and dishonest these people are. What's most interesting, however, is what's NOT in the article. The tea baggers are all against "excessive" government spending but they are never asked, and they never say, what government spending or programs they want reduced or eliminated. It seems that these people just enjoy being angry at everything for whatever reason, and they really hate our President ... who just happens to be black ... but they're not racist. Really. Get it?

We've seen this act before.

Back in 2000, when Bush was running for president, every time he gave a speech there were always a couple of black people standing behind him. They always looked bewildered, like they had no idea what was going on. I can only imagine Bush's advance people saying to each other "We gotta find some blacks and put them behind Bush to show he's not racist." I'll bet it was someone's job to find blacks and bring them to the speeches. These advance people would probably say the following to one another:

"Can you find us some blacks?"

"Ok, how many blacks do you need?"

"As many as you can find!"

Later on ...

"Are these enough blacks for you?"

"Couldn't you find more blacks?"

"No, these were all the blacks that were available.
Are these blacks black enough for you? Or are they too black?"

"No, they're black enough."

Bush in 2000. The Tea Part in 2010. Never forget: they all really love the blacks!
