|Is the Tea Party Racist?|
I'm too tired this evening to list all the telling evidence. But claiming that the president of the United States spends his days doctoring a birth certificate, or that he's a radical socialist or as I mentioned above, that he's a "racist" or a Muslim terrorist" does not represent rational discourse. Closing down the government to thwart the President's health care program, obstructing Congress and driving the nation to the verge of default in order to make the Obama Administration fail are not the actions of patriotic Americans. They are rather symptoms of a spiritual wound, far too deep to excise with reason or logic.
Not everyone in the Tea Party is a racist. Some are just dupes. who have become raveled up in the seemingly libertarian tone of the movement. But what I know and they don't is that the day (or maybe I'll give it a month) after the black man leaves office, when they drop by Tea Party headquarters, the door will be padlocked and an "office space for rent" sign will be hanging in the window. How can I be so sure? The driving force behind their movement has nothing to do with politics or ideology. It is a movement fueled by the raw sewage of racism. When the target of their rage leaves the national stage, their destructive energy will fade just as fast. Just wait and see.
