Beware the tea party, Jesse Jackson, Frederica Wilson and black Democrats say at jobs meeting
The Miami Herald (political blog) ^ | 8/22/11 | Patricia Mazzei

Posted on 08/22/2011 8:00:52 PM PDT by ruralvoter

Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus are in Miami Tuesday to host a jobs fair, part of their five-city tour to draw attention to high unemployment, particularly in the black community.

But at a town-hall style meeting the members held Monday night, some of the most heated talk centered not on jobs but on the tea party.

"The real enemy is the tea party –- let's remember that," said Rep. Frederica Wilson of Miami Gardens, host of the meeting and jobs fair. "The tea party holds Congress hostage…They have one goal in mind, and that's to make President Obama a one-term president."

Did they also tell their of age kids not to have premarital sex because it had consequences? How did that work out? Well the largest segment of unwed/single mothers are black.

"The tea party is a new name on an old game," he said. "Dr. King fought a 'tea party' in Alabama...He had no weapons, but he confronted the tea party."

Wrong. Dr. King fought Gov. Wallace in Alabama - a Democrat.

Dr. King he fought the White Citizens Councils - all Democrats.

Bull Conner was a lifelong Democrat.

The only KKK member of the Senate in modern history was a Democrat...

The Rev. Jesse Jackson needs to spend more time telling black teenagers that flash mobbing is criminal.

He can explain to Black Panthers that voter intimidation is against the law - since Holder doesn’t seem to care...

Jesse can tell Maxine this is a free country - - Tea Party members have as much right to free speech as the NAACP.

There’s so much good he could do - but I suspect he’ll do the usual...

This is beginning to sound like an orchestrated declaration of war on ordinary Americans - especially if they are not “eric holder’s people”.

"This is beginning to sound like an orchestrated declaration of war on ordinary Americans..." I shortened your sentence and just have to say that I couldn't agree more! Before we know it success will be a felony and fiscal responsibility a capital crime.

“This is beginning to sound like an orchestrated declaration of war on ordinary Americans...”

More precisely, conservative Americans who are horrified at how far we’ve sunk after decades of “progressive” policies, and are now motivated to correct our country’s course to something the founders might actually recognize.

If that makes us “the enemy”, then this is a declaration of war upon us, our ideals, and everything we hold dear.

They STILL do not understand that the “tea party” has no leaders, no orchestrated events, nor any platform. It’s comprised of concerned Americans from all walks of life who are now motivated to recover what we’ve lost, and are only joined by our mutual sense of purpose and a growing frustration with “business as usual.”

And ever growing anger.

Maxine Waters said the (old White) Tea Party (people) can go straight to hell.

Waters and other Black democrats have been saying all along the Tea Party are just a bunch of old White people. Now we know how she and they really feel about old White people, they can just go straight to hell.

“There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs, partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”… Booker T. Washington …1904 quote

Too late, blacks are already joining the Tea Party.

Well, I'll be dipped! As far as the TEA party folks I hang with, this is completely correct, although most of us would like to see him quit/resign/be impeached even sooner.

No, because we want all the followers of the professional race-baiters to get themselves off the Gubmint Plantation. Just because the chains seem prettier doesn't mean they don't bind.

If they wish to talk about jobs, perhaps African-Americans should ask why the Dems support illegal immigration which has negatively affected blacks in the job market.

Blacks are upset at the illegals yet continue to back the Dems.

They are REALLY trying to build themselves a boogey-man for the next election.

Race-baiting Democrats can ALWAYS depend on the crypto-massa boogeyman angle to be lapped up by the "black community" in the run-up to any election. It is their most well-worn canard. Socially and economically self-defeating or not, Democrats really don't care as it serves their purpose of staying power. Think pimp assuring the girls how much he loves them and will always protect them.

True enough. That was by no means intended to be a comprehensive list. It does walk hand in hand with fiscal responsibility, however.

Most I know want government back inside its Constitutional limits.

You’re right. I was blessed with being able to hear Dr. King give his “I have a Dream’ speech in Chicago several months after he had given it in DC. The Chicago speech was better - he took the one section - the Dream section - and expanded it to the whole speech. At one point I realized I was tearing - then looked around and saw that most of the other people there were crying too. It was the most amazing speech I’ve ever heard. He would later start falling for more of the liberal stuff, but hadn’t gone totally over at that time. Dr. King was a Republican ...
