Tea Party Racism

I really should be working on homework, but when I found this article tonight, I couldn’t resist.

The Tea Party “Patriots” are once again causing more trouble just so they can see their redneck, warmongering faces on television and newspapers.

On Thursday NPR published an article about how the Republican leadership across the country is being encouraged to sever ties with the Tea Party Movement consisting of many right-wing citizens who are being led by former governor of Alaska and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

These “Patriots” (they’re closer to committing treason than being patriotic) openly spitting upon and yelling racially-charged phrases such as “n***er” at multiple African-American members of Congress.

Yes, we live in “the land of the free, and the home of the brave,” where, in theory, anyone can say anything they want, but we are also “created equal.”

One member of this right-wing, racist organization called Atlanta congressman and civil rights leader John Lewis the “n-word.”  That is wrong.  I don’t care about a man’s skin color.  First of all, it’s not like we can pick our skin color.  Second of all, just because a man is different doesn’t mean that he is any less human or less deserving than anyone else.

Another member of the Tea Party spat on Congressman Emanuel Cleaver; he then proceeded to confront the individual who did so, but did not engage him.

Another member of this spittin’ redneck organization called openly-gay Congressman Barney Frank a “f****t.”  While yes, he might fit the definition for that word, that is a very demeaning term, and no one should use it–just like the “n-word.”

I say all this not to slight the entire Tea Party movement, I’m sure there are plenty of people in the Treason Party, er, Tea Party movement that are not racist.  To any civil Tea Partier who does not think less of someone because of their orientation or race, I plead with you to find another party–yes, our government needs reform, but is it any coincidence that all of this protesting and anti-government fear in the United States is because we now don’t have a white President? NO!

Our government needs reform–there is no doubt in most peoples’ minds about that, but stooping to the level of an uneducated, racist bigot is not acceptable and should not represent our nation to the world.
