Tea Party Moves Against GOP. So Where Is The Racism?

From Politico:

Tea party activists from across the nation are rallying around the House special election in upstate New York, viewing it as the first electoral test of the nascent conservative movement’s political muscle.
Organizers up and down the East Coast report that activists are making their way into the campaign offices ofConservative Party nominee Doug Hoffman, with the volunteers focusing their efforts in Oswego, Madison and Jefferson counties. While tea party organizers say the election is a unique opportunity to hold the Democratic and Republican parties to account, much of their energy is being directed against Dede Scozzafava, the GOP establishment-backed nominee whom they view as a squishy moderate who represents all that is wrong with the Republican Party.

Well, well, well,  the Tea Party movement is now venting its rage against a very WHITE GOP candidate. Does this not contradict the insane ramblings of the Raaaaacism Industrial Complex? Where is Jeanane Garofalo to say  "this is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up."?  Funny, I don't see any black men in the NY-23 race.  What about Jimmy Carter, where is he to say that the "overwhelming portion of opposition" is based on racism? So Jimmy, where is the overwhelming number of racists here?

Perhaps the answer to these questions is what it always has been, that the Tea Party protest isn't about racism, Democrats or Republicans, but is about bringing an out of control Federal government to heel. Perhaps the answer is also that members of the Raaaaacism Industrial Complex are all about making up charges of racism against the Tea Party movement for the sake of shielding Obama and the Democrats from the strong criticism they deserve.

If it is against Obama or the democartic party it is automatic Rasist. That is just how it is! This country used to beleive in free speach, but now we have a black president...............just give him a Nobel Prize!

Thanks for the linkage. You are so right, the race issue, when not applicable, skews everything.

I am sure the left can scrape together an appropriate collection of grievance groups to paint the tea partiers in a negative light.

So true, if it doesn't support their narratives, then ignore, ignore, ignore.

I know what you mean, the charge "racist" is starting to become a joke.
