How about Redistributing common sense and brotherly love?
After a massive kickoff rally in Searchlight, Nevada, the Tea Party Express III is winding its way across America. They are received by large rallies of Tea Party patriots in city after city along the way. The three bus, 43 city tour arrives in Washington DC this week for a mega-rally on tax day April 15th.
The greatest proof the tea parties are not racist is the overwhelmingly positive and enthusiastic response to my signature opening comment. Hello my fellow patriots. I am not an African-American! I am Lloyd Marcus, AMERICAN! The crowds go wild with cheers and even some tears. These patriots flock to me expressing great gratitude for my stand not to be hyphenated. Countless times I have heard, Hyphenating divides us. We wish to be Americans.
Excerpted from The Tea Party Rap:
Theres a Tea Party movement Were not in Boston. Its not a race thing Though you hear that often.
What happened is a sleeping giant chose to wake up Have you ever heard a million people shouting Enough!? The walls of the Congress and Senate are shaking This is the result when you awake a free nation.
Fiscally responsible, thats the Tea Party Promotes free markets, yes, thats the Tea Party Limited governments the only solution Our only foundation should be our Constitution.
From coverage by a CNN television news producer (above, interviewing young rap artist Polatik) who actually bothered to go see in person what Tea Parties are like:
"But heres what you dont often see in the coverage of Tea Party rallies: Patriotic signs professing a love for country; mothers and fathers with their children; African-Americans proudly participating; and senior citizens bopping to a hip-hop rapper.
Being at a Tea Party rally is not quite like seeing it on TV, in newspapers or online."
As long as the TP doesn’t fall into the old reactionary habits of being defensive. When the Left goes off and calls them “racist” (whatever that means?) the proper response is to charge the Left with “hate speech.”
Attempting to incite a riot.
THAT was a bit too flipping quick and I question the timing. I don't know the man, just that he entered the race last week and is already being accused of being a tea party backed candidate AND a racist.
