Lloyd Marcus Defends Tea Party on Fox & Friends
LloydMarcus.com ^ | 9/30/2011 | Lloyd Marcus

Posted on 09/30/2011 7:02:54 AM PDT by Lloyd Marcus

Tuesday, I flew up to New York from Florida to appear on a Wednesday 7:15am segment on the Fox News channel's Fox & Friends. Typically, CNN & Fox send a car to drive me to a studio in Orlando. This was the first time I had to fly to New York to be “live” on the set.

Mary booked my hotel in Queens so I would be close to the airport. Fox would send a car to take me to their studio in the morning and back to my hotel afterward.

Remember that old Jack Lemmon and Sandy Dennis movie when his wife accompanied him to New York for a job interview and they became horribly lost? I got horribly lost in Queens trying to get to my hotel. I laughed at myself, after all these years, trying to morph into my old streets of Baltimore “don't-mess-with-me” body language.

It was around 7:30pm and the streets were mobbed with people going in all directions. Seeing me lugging my suitcase and computer bag over my shoulder, one of two urban attired black guys chatting stopped and asked, “Cab?”. Totally frustrated, I said, “Yes”. Insanely, I followed this stranger to a dark parking lot. He had an SUV. He delivered me to my hotel for 10 bucks. I gave him twenty. But, our encounter was divinely inspired. I scheduled him to drive me to the airport the next day after my Fox appearance.

This young black man was smart, a good guy and loaded with potential. We chatted about business, unemployment and other things around the fringes of politics. I never felt lead to tell him, “Obama sucks”.

The young black driver gave me a wonderful compliment. He said he had never driven anyone who talked and made him feel good the way I did. Thus, confirming I was exactly where God wanted me to be, doing what He wanted me to do; encouraging this young man and hopefully assisting in pointing him in the right direction.

When he dropped me off at the airport, I gave him a copy of my CD album, “American Tea Party”. Whenever I go to New York, I will give “my driver” a call.

On Fox & Friends, I was part of a three person panel discussion hosted by Gretchen Carlson, a very nice lady. The program producer emailed me the day before with a list of topics on the agenda for discussion; none of which were the continuing charges that the Tea Party is racist.

With the NAACP, CBC and black actor Morgan Freeman calling the Tea Party racist, I felt God's number one purpose for having me on national TV was to be a “black voice” defending the great people of our divinely inspired Tea Party movement.

During the break before our final segment, I asked Gretchen if she would give me an opportunity to address the racism charges against the Tea Party. Remarkably and graciously, Gretchen said, “yes”. It was a “God Thing”, thanks to all of your prayers.

Here is the link to view the segment.

I realize we are facing challenging times ahead. Obama will probably raise a billion dollars for his re-election campaign. Still, I believe we, the Tea Party, will overthrow his evil regime come November 2012. How? “If God be for us, who can be against us”.

Great job, Lloyd! I had the privilege of being on Fox & Friends a couple of months ago, with Steve, and they were very accommodating. At least somebody is letting us speak some truth!

You took a chance with "your" driver and God protected you and you picked a winner, but be careful in the future.

We need guys like you to continue to explain the TEA party and continue to smack this TEA party is racist meme that is only going to get worse.

I'm a Sarah Palin guy, but if she chooses not to run, I'll happily go with the Herminator, and I've run some real numbers, and his 9,9,9 tax reform will really work.

I've been to a TEA party where Cain spoke and he is a genuine, hard working, smart American and the fact that he is black does not enter into any equation as to his qualifications to lead this Country.

Keep up your good work and God Bless you.

Thanks for testifying we are not racists. You were compelling and convincing.

Not a fan of the hat though, it’s a little distracting. Fine everywhere else, I know it’s your signature.

well done.
I saw Beckel last night and for the first time in my life I had to send FOX e-mail saying how disgusted I was.
The reason being was that Beckel kept bringing up color, how republicans have done nothing for the black community while ignoring the civil rights, KKK, etc

I admire your courage for standing up and calling out these haters and people who keep raising the issue of race.

I’ve found that many shut up when I say this.
When you have no money and in debt at your house do you go and get another loan and keep spending to get out of debt or do you stop going out to eat and do some cuts.

Never do they answer that question.

I hope that Fox at least paid for your airline ticket and hotel room. Ailes has been getting very cheap lately.

Great job.

In my opinion, these charges of racism need to be answered by denigrating their usage as intellectually lazy -

it’s much easier for someone like Morgan Freeman to just drop the race card than it is for him to try to intellectually address the actual issues that political opponents bring to the table.

The charge of “racism” is simply an accusation in lieu of an argument.

Hope to bump into you on a plane, train or cab. Love chatting with ‘strangers’ and sharing stories. We should all leave our TVs, computers and Iphones & make eye-contact with one another.

I expect that is why the TEA party gatherings generate so much enthusiasm; real human contact.

Thanks LM for your good works;)

Lloyd, keep callin it like you see it!

I am a white girl, I am Irish and English by heritage, and I was born in Honolulu Hawaii in 1969 (yea I have my birth certificate long and short forms both! Cost me a total of maybe 25$) and I know racism. I lived it as a haole in Hawaii. When my family moved to Oregon in 1977, I was below first grade academically when I should have been a solid 3rd grader because the teachers didn't give a hoot about the haole kids in their classes. I wasn't the only white kid in the back of the classroom looking at the walls.

I have lived racism, and you know what it taught me? The rea racists in this world use racism as a means to an end. Be it character assassination, or just flat out discrimination.... racists use race as a means to an end. Now we have got to ask ourselves... just who is it that is using race as a means to an end in national politics?

Ummm hummmm Talking heads like Morgan Freeman, Jeannine Garafalo.... leftist democrat shills are using race as a means to an end!!!!!!!!

It is WAY far pas time we start talking about the real history of the GOP! It is the GOP and Lincoln who ended slavery. It was the GOP White House and conservative controlled congress which pushed through the 14th, 15th, and 16th Amendments to the constitution. It is NOT the GOP who had a leader who was also a Grand Kleegal in the KKK! That was the Democrat Party! It is not the GOP who supported Jim Crow laws in the south! It was the Democrat party in the south which wrote and then passed those laws!

We need to start standing up and calling this BS from the left what it is... RACISM. I don't really care on a personal level whether these leftists are racists themselves, or if they are just spouting the party line, either way it is morally WRONG and we need to stand up against this insidious politically correct and immoral tactic!

Thank you for taking a stand and forcing the left to admit that America isn't racist anymore! THEY are! It is the left which throws the accusation because they know that they would quiver with shame and fear if anyone had the stones to call them on this! - to name them as what they are, racists, using race as a means to an end. When THEY stop using race as a means to an end, RACISM WILL END ALSO!

Thanks Lloyd! You fight the good fight my brother!

And Danae don’t forget that it was Woodrow Wilson, a democrat, in the early 1920s that pretty much institutionalized segregation especially in the Federal government and that has been the focus of the democrat party ever since!

The dems want Perry and Romney. Just like they wanted McCain. They can reuse all the same ole arrows they have time and time again. Repubs are racist. Repubs hate the poor. Cain comes from humble beginnings. They can’t use racism or class warefare. But here is the real kicker... Cain CAN solve problems. He transcends politics by presenting COMMON SENSE solutions. America is in a mess. Career partisan politicians GOT US HERE!!! We can NOT let the Republican talking heads or the dems give us the next candidate. Obama will never win a debate with Cain. The man is about as classy as you can get. He DOES NOT NEED OR USE TELEPROMPTERS.
And since Palin and Cain are cut from the same cloth, I honestly believe her supporters will become his.
Cain 2012/2016

LOL Both Hubby and I have been asking that question a lot and you are right liberals look like they are deer in the headlights and usually just walk away.It’s very common sense and truthful to ask just one simple question....I hope I see one of the republican candidate say t just like that in one of the debates.

TY Marcus for speaking out for the rest of us. :)

I’ve found when dealing with la la land frothing at the mouth liberals you have to ask a question to make them think so they get your point of view.

I swear that not one person on the left has answered the question and it really is easy to answer.

If you have no money and in debt do you keep spending to get out of you debt or do you do cuts to your house hold budget like not going out to eat, buy cheaper food, cut down on spending?

It really is a simple question and yet they will not answer it LOL.

There have books written about it! Democrats represent institutionalized racism. They focus on it, they promote it every day. And blacks keep voting for them in droves. I for the life of me cannot understand it.
