I found this both funny and hypocritical seeing that this country was founded via “theft by Taking” and that they do not seem to remember this. Not to mention, if anyone is “illegal” by their standards, whatever they buy, they pay taxes on.
For some reason history is lacking by many who proclaim affiliation with the tea party and display some historical resemblance to others like minded organizations of this country in the past. Their positions are equal to those of the Christian identity movement of Jack Van Impe, individuals who believe the second amendment existed during the time of Paul Revere and more specific, George Rockwell – founder of the American Nazi Party.
Now I am not call every member of the tea party a Nazi, or any for that matter, but suggesting that their ideology is quite similar. Rockwell was a member of the US Navy and served in both WW II and the Korea war.
He founded and ran the American Nazi Party from its inception in 1959 until his assassination in 1967. He invented the phrase "White Power" while in 1966 during a debate with Black Panther Stokely Carmichael.
Like the Tea Party, the ANP used similar charged language to promote their political agenda. His party advocated that most Jews were communist and therefore worthy of death and those African-Americans who wish to stay in the United States should be placed on reserves like the Native Americans. His desire was to see white people (he called the master race), take back America. He was against forced integration, but stranger not against Islam as most tea party supporters today.
Case in fact, in the summer of 1961, he started an alliance with Elijah Muhammad. For Rockwell, Nazis and Black Muslims could be allies, since they both sought the same goal—separation of the races. He even called Elijah Muhammad as the "Black people's Hitler."
Stranger is that the Black Muslim cooperated with Rockwell and the Ku Klux Klan. Elijah Muhammad even sent Malcolm X to Atlanta to a secret meeting with members of the Klan, where they discussed race relations. It resulted in a nonaggression pact. According to Claude A. Cleg’s An Original (If the Muslims did not aid the civil rights movement in the South, the mosques would be undisturbed).
The picture in this post is of Rockwell, during a Nation of Islam meeting, either in 1961 or 1962. If it was in 1961, it was when he attended a Black Muslim rally at Uline Arena in Washington, where Malcolm X gave a speech called “Separation or Death.”
Now the Tea Party supporters may not be exactly in line with the aforementioned Mr. Rockwell, but by golly, with the exception of embracing Muslims, they sure do have a lot of the same ideas.
