The Left love to use the race card — for everything, especially against the TEA Parties.
Since the TaxedEnoughAlready Party movement is opposed to the ever-expanding Obese Government that has burdened us and future generations with a national debt that now exceeds $14 TRILLION, and since the Democratic Party champions big government, welfare entitlements, and ever more taxes — and since the vast majority of blacks vote Democratic (82% in 1964; 95% voted for Obama in 2008) – there are not many blacks among the ranks of the TEA Party movement.
None of which however means that the movement is racist. But that simple logic is way too much of a mental stretch for the Left. Using the stupid illogic of the Left, one would have to call the NBA a racist organization because there are so many black basketball players.
Happily and at long last, a black TEA Party has been founded! I applaud these fine Americans. Imagine the courage and integrity of conviction to be a conservative black American. They do Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. proud!

Named after the first person to die in the Revolutionary War, the Crispus Attucks Tea Party was founded January 18th, 2011, at “This Is It” soul food restaurant in the heart of Houston, Texas’ 3rd district. (Read the interesting original court documents about the “Boston Massacre,” including a dramatic description of Attucks’ slaying, here.)
The 3rd district is Represented by Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, and was the focal point of rampant ACORN-style vote fraud and widespread voter intimidation this past November. It is thus fitting that this tea party had its inaugural meeting right down the street from Lee’s residence.
With the typical politesse and considerate attitude of conservatives — always left unreported by the press (do ya think?) – Rep. Lee was extended an invitation to the event. And with typical leftist rudeness, Lee snubbed it. Wonder why? These are her constituents, after all.
Surprisingly, the local Fox News channel reporting on the event hastened to observe that many attendees at this founding meeting were white. Simply unbelievable. Is it not even possible to attend an event in support of the group without the information being somehow skewed by the media to suggest that it wasn’t “authentic” because white people were there???
One blogger put up a hilarious parody of liberal hypocrisy, observing that if they could get away with it, liberals would report the event as: White Tea Party Racists Attend Black Tea Party.
Well, never mind. The times they are a changin’! Yes they are, and the media is getting the message, whether they want to hear it or not. We are not going away.
