Skip to comments.NBC Reporter To Black Republican: Are You Aligning Yourself With The "Racism" In The Tea Party?
Posted on 05/07/2010 12:44:08 PM PDT by ianschwartz
MSNBC HOST: Lt. Col., our time is limited, but my last question to you. The Tea Party has raised concerns that it may have, I guess, racism build in it. We have seen some racist signs at past events. People have said that is not apart of the Tea Party movement, but are African-American candidates aligning themselves with the Tea Party?
LT. COL. ALLEN WEST (RET.): Well, I don't think they're so much aligning themselves with the Tea Party. The principles and values I espouse: limited government, lower taxes, individual responsibility, accountability, liberty and honoring the traditions of our Constitutional Republic are connecting me with those grassroots Americans that attend Tea Party rallies. And I've spoken to four or five of those rallies and I've not seen any racist type of signs.
Lt. Col. Allen West, retired, is a Republican Florida Congressional candidate.

The so-called "racist" signs equate to any sign that criticizes The One...
Paraphrase: Sir we see racists all the time in the Tea Party. The Tea Party is racist. You are black. Are you a black racist?
NBC Reporter and others like you guys have race issues on the brain. It makes you the racist.
“We have seen some racist signs at past events”
On one hand I’d like to see some examples of this but on the other, isn’t diversity good?
Translation: Everybody’s a racist but me.
Pray for America
MSNBC. Nobody saw it.
Next narrative: how blacks owned slaves.
NBC reporters are communists.....
It was a standard issue off the cuff reply, you could read between the lines of Col. West’s commentary.
He’s too polite to tell this moron to shut up.
The media and guys like the principal in Ann Arbor who organized a field trip for black elementary students (no whites allowed) to meet and hear a speech by a black rocket scientist won’t let racism die. Anytime someone separates the races in their talk, racism lives on. I have always thought that the person who brings up racism (either to discuss it or to call someone a racist) is the real racist and projects his/her opinion on others.
Next question: I have heard you have stopped beating your wife, is that true?
Show us the “racist” signs of which you speak.
Produce the signs or STFU!!!
You got it! bttt
Like I’ve said before, can we trade out Obama for West?
MSM translation.... Limited government and lower taxes are Racist attitudes. Fork it over you Capitalist Pig!
