Posted on 07/30/2010 11:01:59 AM PDT by EternalVigilance
What will it take for the media to acknowledge that the Tea Party is not a racist movement, and that liberals have smeared it as such in a naked politicization of race relations? How about a lefty activist admitting just that.
UPenn professor Mary Frances Berry, a leader of the "far-left black political scene," as NB Executive Editor Matt Sheffield wrote, penned this astonishing email to Politico, published on July 20:
Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.

Something I have noticed is the lack of reports on TV about the T Party. Is it me or do you see this.
Dream on, the only ones that care about being called a Racist are the uninformed.
What’s the most effective counter? Ridicule? Ignoring them?
But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks
Well, so far I think the actual count (as I recall) is . . . two.
One took a day or two and the other was shooed off in about 15 minutes, before the end of the rally. None have been detected since and I believe no more REAL ones exist.
and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November.
If their is a candidate that is in opposition to the documented platform of the TEA Party Movement the odds of them being a real Republican are, umm, Zerø.
As far as that helping a communist calling themselves a democrat win this coming November?
They are daydreaming of Ø-bammy land again.
Having ones opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.
Well Mizzz Berry, now that you are on the record as throwing false accusations to divert attention to the wrecked economy that started in 2006 (one more time... what happened in `06?) the republicans have been relieved of that 5 minute chore.
Which will be more than enough time for all of us to listen to EVERY glowing success story of introducing socialism / marxism / communism into an existing thriving economy and watching joblessness vanish.
Woooooo Hoooooo, Mizzz Barrrr-ry!
We are all waiting Mizzz Barry.
You can start telling us about the wild and out of control success stories of introducing socialism / marxism / communism into an existing thriving economy.
We now have plenty of time...
The wild and out of control success stories of introducing socialism / marxism / communism into an existing thriving economy?
Just one Mizzz Barry?
The TEA Party dislikes one man in particular.........who happens to be black. This crap is totally political and means nothing.
Tea Party is not nor has ever been a racist movement.
But the far-left black political scene is a front for Marxism whether the media wants to admit it or not.
Just not as effective as thugs with nightsticks...
I don’t even think it’s effective. It’s an attack on the American people themselves. Only people who already hate America agree with it.

Right out of the Saul Alinsky playbook.
Because we like joblessness and want the party that brought us massive joblessness to keep on doing what they're doing rather than risk electing someone with an R behind their name who might help get the economy back to work???
I hope they call the Tea Party and everyone who opposes 0bama “racist” even more, because the more they do, the more the charge is exposed as transparently political. In 18 months, 0bama has pretty well spent race politics into bankruptcy.
I hope that the NAACP, congressional black caucus, black panthers, National Association of Black Journalists and other similar groups eventually realize that making enemies out of people that are more like them than not is a very big mistake.
should help Democrats win in November
That's right, honey, ya'll just keep working for Massa Cracker on the Democrantation, ya heah! He gones be lookin attaya reals good...
The Brietbart Strategy. Show everyone that they are even more racist using their own words and actions.
Ignore them, and laugh at them. Spend as little time on it as possible because that’s what they want you to do. The more it’s in the air, even as a lie, the more it gains mindshare.
If someone tells you that tea partiers are racists ask them if they’ve ever been to one. and then invite them to the next one so they can see it first hand, and then get on the offensive talking about the real issues.
BOGUS... But EFFECTIVE?,,,............ ROFL...
Exposing their lies. Call it "McCarthyism." Joe McCarthy followed this philosophy: if even one of your friends is a communist, you need to answer a few questions for the House Un-American Activities Committee.
The Democratic Party has embraced essentially the same philosophy: if you have a Tea Party gathering of 2 million people in Washington DC, and just one guy at the back of the crowd has a sign that says "Taxpayer=N---ER," then all 2 million of those people are racists.
Even if that guy with the sign is from MoveOn.org, and voted for Cynthia McKinney for president because Barack Obama wasn't sufficiently left-wing for him.
I say that when they call us racists, it's the new form of McCarthyism.
These race hustlers are going to find out very shortly that the race card isn't a trump anymore. It's soon going to be as effective as "Your mother wears army boots ..."
The shame is that African-Americans are being sold out by the people who claim to represent them. Whether the NAACP likes it or not, civil rights in this country depend on the basic decency and fairness of the vast majority of white Americans. The African-American community is allowing that good will to be squandered for the benefit of Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, Charlie Rangel and their ilk. Obama has set race relations back 20 years ...
The Bible instructs us to turn the other cheek - it doesn't specify that we allow ourselves to have the sh*t slapped out of us.
