Maddow: Tea Party group will use whites to question black voters | The Raw Story

Maddow: Tea Party group will use whites to question black voters | The Raw Story.

Ok, I’ve always been aware that there was a subtle undercurrent of racism in the United States. But this just takes the cake! It’s moved from being subtle to screaming so loudly that it is now blatant.

I have to wonder – the district I live in is abotu 60% minority. I wonder if they’ll be pulling that shit even here in RI? If they are I will be the one asking exactly what they are doing in the poll on election day.

I’ve long understood that the core motivation of the Tea Baggers (Don’t get your underwear in a bunch, they called themselves that at the beginning and so I am just honoring their founding by using the name they called themselves!), anyhow the core motivation is racism, plain and simple.

That the TrueTheVote pukes get their sponsorship from the Tea Baggers is no surprise. And we have to continue to ask where the Tea Baggers get their money. It’s corporate interests. That corporations are supporting racism is no surprise either.

What is the Federal Government going to do to make sure these practices are discouraged? Sending observers is one thing, but perhaps troops with weapons may be needed too.

And with regard to Voter ID – it has the EXPRESS purpose of vote suppression. In fact here in RI our Voter ID law actually opens avenues of fraud that our ‘genius’ legislators never thought about. Anyone with an ounce of technical savvy can now commit election fraud.

And thinking back on this, when President Obama was elected I had said that it would drive the racists out of the woodwork. Sure enough – they think just because a black man is President they can say and do such horribly racists things. I hate it when I’m right with things like that. It means I understand the population of the U.S. a bit better than the next guy.

A strategy to restore sanity – Updated

Some of you probably won’t like what I’m about to say, but think about the consequences.

In an article titled “If Boehner Got Everything He Wanted the Bottom 99% Would Be Out in Food Lines Now”

I have a few comments on this. I’ve seen the little tent cities, and the increase in homeless here in my own city. I’ve watched as governments move to cover it all up lest people get irked by a society that cannot take care of ALL its citizens.

But the Lamestream (An appropriate reference to the mainstream corporate media!) media doesn’t report it, most of us never know about it lest we see it with our own eyes. The reason I call them lame is because the ‘news’ they report is really nothing of the sort.

But it’s true that if we don’t increase revenue this country is headed down an unsure path. I also love how the S&P report calls out the Republican obstinacy in their report on downgrading the U.S. debt rating.

The article does make an interesting observation though. It’s the Tea Baggers that are causing Boehner to tack to the extreme right.

Note my use of the term “Tea Bagger”. I mean it. In fact they meant it too, as evidence:

Tea Bagger and tea bags

I refuse to call them anything but Tea Bagger. And in doing so I’ve been accused of using sexual innuendo when referring to those of that persuasion.

We need to ridicule and denigrate the Tea Baggers. That’s the best way to deal with their bovine effluent. Call them out on their crap on a regular basis. Make it so they cannot hide, they cannot run.

And apparently, their song is playing off tune to most Americans too. Even Tea Party darling Christine O’Donnell only got FIVE people at her book signing. Five!

Tea Party/Tea Baggers are really Republican Fringe

So we all know about the Tea Baggers taking over and modifying the Maine Republican Platform.

But it gets better. Apparently while they were in town some public school classrooms were made available to them.

What 8th grade English teach Paul Clifford found when he returned to his classroom on Monday tells it all when it comes to the Tea Baggers.

E.g.

– For seven years, Clifford has had “a collage-type poster depicting the history of the U.S. labor movement” on his classroom door. He uses it “to teach his students how to incorporate collages into their annual project on Norman Rockwell’s historic ‘Four Freedoms’ illustrations.” When Clifford returned to his classroom on Monday, after the GOP caucuses, the poster was gone; in its place was a sticker reading, “Working People Vote Republican.”

– Republicans opened a “closed cardboard box they found near Clifford’s desk” and later objected to the fact that it contained copies of the U.S. Constitution donated to the school by the American Civil Liberties Union.

– After the caucuses, “rank-and-file Republicans who were upset by what they said they had seen in Clifford’s classroom” began calling the school, objecting to student art they had seen and a sticker on a filing cabinet reading “People for the American Way — Fight the Right.”

So apparently Tea Baggers don’t like labor movements. I suppose the 1,000 plus nurses that marched on Washington recently wouldn’t fit in with their twisted and demented world view.

Better yet, I’m curious what they find more objectionable, that there were copies of the Constitution in the room, or that they were compliments of the American Civil Liberties Union. I’d bet it’s the latter since the ACLU is a target of Tea Baggers and their ilk.

The only semi-legitimate claim to offense that they have is the PFAW Fight the Right sticker and even that is stretching it quite a bit.

It’s funny, I saw the Tea Party/Bagger official head in a clip from The View the other day. As I’ve gotten older I’ve developed the ability to discern when people are lying. That bitch was lying from the start, claiming there wasn’t a racist element to the Tea Baggers. Yeah right, and I’ve got bridge I want to sell you.

Maine GOP Forced To Apologize After Convention-Goers Vandalize An Eighth-Grade Classroom

A forced apology isn’t sincere at all. You’re bigoted assholes, the lunatic fringe. I guess that’s what happens when you embrace a movement rooted in racism.
