They will proudly boast of how they have galvanised ordinary Americans against runaway government spending, but a dark underbelly of xenophobia has been exposed at the first national gathering of the Tea Party movement...
The anti-Government, anti-Establishment movement, which has splintered in the past week with many boycotting this gathering, has billed itself as a revolution born of the widespread disgust at Washington and the way that the nations politicians are bankrupting Americas future.
Yet the speech that opened the Nashville event yesterday, an address greeted with whoops and cheers from the mainly white audience, reflects a movement that also appears to have a less attractive side to it.
Tom Tancredo, a former Republican congressman who ran for president in 2008 on an anti-illegal immigration platform, said of the voters who elected Mr Obama: They could not even spell the word vote or say it in English and they put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House Barack Hussein Obama!
Decrying Americas multiculturalism, Mr Tancredo said that Republicans and Democrats had voted for a black man because they felt they had to. To a standing ovation, he shouted: We really do have a culture to pass on to our children: its based on Judaeo-Christian values.
This is our country, he declared. Lets take it back! He added, to applause: Cultures are not the same. Some are better. Ours is best! The crowd, some wearing recently purchased T-shirts saying Keep the change Ill keep my FREEDOM my GUNS and my MONEY, loved it...
One featured speaker, a Patriot Pastor named Rick Scarborough, told The Times that he was not against legal immigrants but God has ordained that you are not a nation if you dont have borders...

King George probably felt the same way.
OK so where’s the nasty part?
London Times stays nasty.
Tim Reid, the author, is still blind to his nation’s open borders policy that is bringing the most radical enemies of freedom inside their nation.
I hope so and all I can say is it's about time. Our nation is being undermined and destroyed.
Ordinary Americans are only supposed to care about American Idol and Sports.
Judaeo-Christian values are the bedrock of our guaranteed inalienable rights.
Some nancy boy in London upset by our patriotism is fine by me. After all look what multiculturalism has brought the U.K. a county overrun with Muslims demanding and getting Sharia law. Now that’s nasty!
They could not even spell the word vote or say it in English and they put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House”

No one ever said the NEA was intelligent.
not seeing a problem with any of the above, I guess that makes me a racist sexist homophobic xenophobe.
the dark underbelly of xenophobia!
Of course. They have to call us names because they can’t argue with the facts.
But at least he said “anti-illegal immigration” instead of the usual “anti-immigrant” label. Must have been a typo/slip up.
We are a massive glacier moving slowly to forever change the landscape. Little snowstorms don't amount to anything. The mass and gravity of the movement is the true power, not some small group trying to pull us in one direction or another. That approach leads to failure.
Why change what works which is distributed, massive political power and voting clout?
Answer: We'll stick with what works. We are winning, they are losing.
Let us see. London Times is a mouthpiece for socialsism and multi-culturism and UK. Hms. What would anyone expect from them?
If Mexicans were any good at operating a country, they wouldn’t need or want to relocate.
It's so xenophobic that it's even inspired the British parties to propose vastly scaling back on immigration. I guess that xenophobia is just fine when it's their own culture that is being wiped out.
The propagandist are at it again.
So now nationalism=xenophobia?
The “Times” should be careful about printing articles like this . . . it might give Britons ideas.
Only if you can't spell, are trying to form a socialist government or have not entered this country legally. Personally I think the left screaming idiots elected Obama because they really didn't understand the true nature of their own politics.....THEY LIE!!!!
Thanks for your concern, Timmy; but I would be more concerned about the radical Muslims that are busy shoveling the remnants of the ‘British Empire’ into the dustbin of history.
