Tea Party Express Press Conference

Fights Back Against Attempts to Discredit the Tea Party Movement

National Black Conservatives Rally to Take Back America

The Tea Party Express, (website: http://www.TeaPartyExpress.org) one of the nation’s largest tea party organizations with over 400,000 members, is conducting a press conference regarding the unrelenting attacks on the tea party movement in an effort to dissuade Americans from rebelling at the ballot box in the November 2010 elections.

“From the very beginning when Rick Santelli’s famous on-air rant helped rally millions of Americans to the tea party movement, the establishment media and liberals across the country have tried to head off the growing citizen involvement in opposing the reckless spending in Washington and the growing intrusiveness of the federal government,” said Lloyd Marcus, Tea Party Express spokesperson and leader.

“First, they called us all Astro-turf and not real, but the crowds kept getting bigger.  Then they said we were being paid by the Republican Party, which became obviously false as we took on establishment Republicans as well as Democrats.  Then they tried to say we were all a bunch of nuts, but when millions of people kept coming, they couldn’t claim everyone was a nut.  Now, they are trying to say that we are racist, which is yet another desperate fabrication.  We are going to stand up and call on the Left to start sticking to the issues, and stop the name calling,” added Marcus.

“In light of the NAACP resolution accusing the millions of Americans who attend Tea Parties of embracing racists, the Tea Party Express is hosting a National Black Conservative Press Conference to speak out against all of the bogus, false and malicious charges leveled against the American people who have rallied to take their country back from the big spending and irresponsible and unconstitutional growth of the federal government. Apparently the NAACP and other groups are afraid to acknowledge the fact that the tea party welcomes people of all races, and is a much bigger and more diverse group than they’re willing to admit,” stated Marcus. 

Black conservative leaders, organization spokespersons, authors, entertainers and activists from across America will gather in Washington DC to introduce themselves and their individual roles in fighting the good fight promoting conservative principles, values and patriotism within the tea party movement.

As a black singer/songwriter performing my “America Tea Party Anthem” and traveling with Tea Party Express, I have attended over 200 tea parties across the U.S. The attendees are not racists. They are decent hard working Americans who love their country. Tea Party patriots oppose President Obama's policies, not his skin color.”

Lloyd Marcus, Black Conservative, Tea Party Express Spokesperson, Entertainer & Press Conference Organizer

Stick to:

Uncontrolled government spending (by both parties)
Unconstitutional government enlargment
Congress not listening to the people it represents

Leave aside (for now) social issues, religious issues.

You’ll get more members and you’ll alienate fewer people who would like to join the Tea Party based on the 1st 3 issues listed.

Is America uniting despite Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the rest of the socialist commies?

Anyone think those who attempt to discredit the Tea Party are worthy of a second thought? Anyone who would gravitate toward the Tea Party shouldn’t give a hoot about those who lean to the left.

I am waiting for a written report, but in Edison, NJ today, right in front of the sub shop where 0bama spoke, a Tea Party person was accosted by 8 to 10 people, called a racist, shoved, screamed at, all for being white.

I did not see it, I heard it first hand from the guy who it happened to.

He had to be yanked out from the crowd that surrounded him, he could not get away. State Troopers were running to his aide when his friends saved him first.

“Uncontrolled government spending (by both parties)

I agree those should be the issues. And instead of accepting the “racist” tag, the MSM should be asking why more minorities aren’t interested in those issues.

What a joke. The Tea Party is making itself irrelevant as it continues to tap dance for its masters.

Will the “Tea Party Express” voluntarily disclose the amounts of compensation and per diem travel/lodging costs it is providing each of these speakers?
