If you did not know The Tea Party is all the rave this season. There is so much to go through that I will only name a few with brief bullet points and then make my comments.
Carl Paladino: This cat may take the cake. First he admits to sending or should I say forwarding emails with bestiality and racist jokes to his boys, for some strange reason I don’t see being Muslim, Black or Hispanic. He is best known for the photo shopped images of President Obama and the First Lady “dressed” for a White House ball as a pimp and bottom bitch. Then there is a December 2008 email showing a video of African tribesmen performing a traditional dance. The video is entitled "Obama Inauguration Rehearsal." I could go on but just in case you want to you can find the emails here. And of Course Paladino states for the record he is not a racist. But what can you expect from a man who looks up to Grover Cleveland - a self proclaimed, staunch racist and supporter of white supremacy.
Sonny Thomas: Thomas is the founder of the Springboro Tea Party. It is obvious that Twitter gave him more balls than he really had., when he tweeted “Illegal’s everywhere today! So many spics makes me feel like a speck. Grrr. Wheres my gun!?” on March 21 of this year. Thomas, is an uncontested candidate for a seat on the Warren County Republican Party’s central committee in Ohio.
Now I don’t really care about these folk. All I do know is that they seem to be both unknowledgeable of American History and civics and intolerant of others. They claim to be patriots and proponents of liberty but likely couldn’t tell you about William Penn – the most tolerant patriot of the new world. The man for whom liberty and especially religious freedom, were lived and observed in his every word and action. But most Tea party folk wouldn’t know about that. And don’t take my word for it – ask Meghan McCain, daughter of John McCain. She said not all but a good portion display various forms of “innate racism.”
