Why I believe in the Tea party by Rob Rosasco (Allen West, Marco Rubio, Pam Bondi and more)

by Rob Rosasco – ROBERTAROSASCO@AOL.COM

America’s oldest political demonstration formed the roots of the tea party today. In 1773 American colonists, furious over a British tax on tea, dumped a shipload of British tea into Boston harbor.

Conservatives of both parties and Republicans in particular are part of the tea party movement because government spending and taxation are out of control. Spending and borrowing have created an unprecedented debt that threatens our nation. These are the driving principles of the tea party.

The tea party message has resonated across the country and in 2010 the election results were dramatic. Republicans took control of congress and most of the new members were tea party activists. In Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Rick Scott, Attorney General Pam Bondi and U.S. Rep. Allen West won with tea party support. And across the country over 700 new conservative legislators were elected. Most were Republican.

The tea party has awakened thousands of citizens to the important issues facing our nation. These new activists are studying, learning about self-government and getting involved in the political process. They attend town hall meetings and are contacting their elected officials.

All this has alarmed the left, which is now using all their old angry rhetoric from the past. The left is angry because they love big government. They believe that government should make more decisions for us and that we are not capable of governing ourselves. Last Wednesday, Leonard Pitts stated the left’s position perfectly. “The new Republicans and tea party people are anti-government, anti-Muslim, anti-gay, anti-science, anti-tax, anti-facts and anti the new demographic represented by a dark skinned president (meaning blacks).”

These are angry, absurd and inflammatory statements. Republican and tea party people are not anti-government. To do away with government is anarchy and they believe in the Constitution and this excellent form of government. But they do believe that government must be reduced in size.

Rep’s Allen West, Tim Scott ,and Repub pres candidate Herman Cain debunking the insulting stereotype

Black Liberals Assault on Herman Cain

 by:  Crystal Wright Columnist, Townhall.com

We live in a democratic country called America where we are given unalienable rights, individual freedoms and liberties to live our lives the way we deem fit. Americans have the freedom to choose what they say, write, their religion and which political party or movement they support: Republican, Democrat, Independent, Tea Party, etc.

But for black Americans the choice of political party appears predestined. It seems liberals but more specifically black liberals have carved in the ten black commandments that “thou shall never be a Republican.” These same black liberals also refuse to submit to the fact that not all blacks think alike.

With black conservatives like Congressman Allen West, Congressman Tim Scott and Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain debunking this insulting stereotype, many black liberals have resorted to racist name calling to protect the myth that Democrat policies help blacks. Cain has been target number one on their list.

Morgan Freeman is a prejudiced man By Selwyn Duke

By Selwyn Duke

When someone insists on making negative judgments about a group, in the face of numerous facts saying otherwise, what do you call it?

As most already know, actor Morgan Freeman recently made headlines by claiming that Republican opposition to Barack Obama was driven by bigotry.  His comments were made recently in an interview with Piers Morgan. Here is the relevant portion:

Freeman: The Tea Partiers, who are controlling the Republican Party…and Mitch McConnell, their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term.  What… underlines that?  Screw the country.  We’re going to do whatever we do to get this black man…outta’ here.

Morgan: But is that necessarily a racist thing?

Freeman: It is a racist thing!

Morgan: Is it not just Republicans….  Wouldn’t they [inaudible] any Democrat President?

Freeman: No, ’cause they would’ve gotten rid of Bill Clinton, if they could have.

Morgan: They tried.

Freeman: They tried, but still….  Ah, uh, they’re not gonna’ get rid of Obama, either; I think they’re shootin’ themselves in the head.

What indicates that Freeman used little logical thought when formulating this opinion is that, not only does it ignore all evidence, he also contradicts his own argument.  Let’s look at the facts.

Republicans not only attacked Bill Clinton – who wasn’t really America’s “first black president” – but also John Kerry (remember the Swiftboaters)?  Now, given that a 2007 study found that Obama had a voting record to the left of Kerry’s – in fact, Obama’s was the most left-wing record in the Senate – why would anyone think that Obama’s ideology alone wouldn’t be enough to make the GOP apoplectic?  Of course, conservatives will object to any liberal holding office, just as liberals will object to any conservative holding office.  Yes, I know all this is obvious.  Apparently, Freeman doesn’t.

Here are a few more obvious facts.  Conservative blacks are very popular within the Tea Party.  Congressman Allen West is considered a star, Lloyd Marcus is a much loved speaker Tea Party Express events, and Herman Cain has long been a favorite of this most right right-wing faction.  In fact, this just in: Herman Cain’s last debate performance has just vaulted him into the lead in the latest Zogby poll of “all likely voters and of likely Republican primary voters.”  That’s ahead of melanin-compromised Rick Perry and blueblood Mitt Romney.  Ah, I guess those “racist” Republicans must need glasses.

Given his immunity to the obvious, what can we say about Freeman?  Well, consider this definition from Dictionary.com, “1.  an unfavorable opinion or feeling formed beforehand or without knowledge, thought, or reason.”

This, of course, is found under the entry “prejudice.”

Freeman, in his denial of the obvious, has clearly formed “an unfavorable opinion or feeling…without knowledge, thought, or reason.”  Freeman is clearly a prejudiced man.

This explains why he descended into irrationality.  Only someone completely driven by emotion would respond to a question about whether the anti-Obama sentiment was ideological by saying it was not “’cause they [Republicans] would’ve gotten rid of Bill Clinton, if they could have.”

Huh?

Something tells me that debate isn’t Freeman’s bag.

Prejudice also explains why, when told that the Republicans did try to get Clinton, Freeman could only answer with, “They tried, but still….”  The sentence ended there because there was no palatable response.  But allow me to finish the statement for the actor, “…but still, I’m a prejudiced man and simply don’t like white people and Republicans.  And that’s all I have to say about that.”

An unprejudiced person would accept what truly drives dislike for Obama: Conservatives don’t like white liberals.  They don’t like black liberals.  They don’t like half-white, half-black liberals.  They don’t like liberals.  This is simply the way conservatives are.

In Freeman’s world, however, ideology cannot be the primary motivator because skin color is.  He naturally assumes that white people who oppose Obama are driven by prejudice.

Because he is.

And people tend to project their own feelings onto others.

CBC says Tea Party racist to Allen West and Herman Cain they’re ‘oreos’ by Joe Newby

, Spokane Conservative Examiner September 25, 2011

Dan Joseph of the Media Research Center went to the Congressional Black Caucus Conference in Washington, D.C., to find out exactly what the Caucus thought of the Tea Party.

Not surprisingly, the Caucus – a group where the sole qualification for entry is race – agreed the Tea Party is racist.

Several told Joseph the Tea Party is racist because it came into existence during the Obama Administration, with one member calling it a response to “having a black man in office.”  That, for them, was proof the group is racist.

“They came about at a time where most of America was relishing in the fact that the country had changed in a symbolic way and an African-American was elected President,” one member said.

“I think the Tea Party should go to hell,” said another, echoing the words of California Democrat Maxine Waters.

“The Tea Party means trouble – you tell them to go to hell,” said a member wearing a military garrison cap.

Hilary O. Shelton, Director of the NAACP Washington, DC bureau, told Joseph he did not believe the Tea Party is racist, but claimed “elements” of the Tea Party was using it to advance what he called a “racist agenda.”  Shelton did not elaborate what that agenda was, however.

For at least two members, the Tea Party is racist because of Michele Bachmann, and one member claimed Sarah Palin is racist.

When asked about Herman Cain and Allen West – two prominent African-Americans who are proud Tea Party members –  several questioned their “blackness,” and at least one called them “oreos” – a slur meaning one who is “black on the outside, but white on the inside.”  The very definition is as racist as one can get, but these members had no problem using it.
