Tea Party Denies Claims Of Racism And Then Writes A Letter

Filed in National by on July 15, 2010

Mark Williams, Tea Party Express Chairman, puts pen to paper to prove the Tea Party isn’t racist, and ends up proving they are.  Simply stunning.

Dear Mr. Lincoln

We Colored People have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!

In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the ‘tea party movement’.

The tea party position to “end the bailouts” for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn’t that what we want all Coloreds to strive for? What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.

And the ridiculous idea of “reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government.” What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!

The racist tea parties also demand that the government “stop the out of control spending.” Again, they directly target Colored People. That means we Colored People would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.

Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government “stop raising our taxes.” That is outrageous! How will we Colored People ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?

Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.

Have at it.  I’m speechless.

    No, the teabaggers aren’t racist at all. Old fossils trying to make a buck off of skin color? Why didn’t Williams just use the N-word. I could see it on the tip of his tongue.

  2. All I can say is O….M….G…. He really wrote that? Wow.

  3. Bill Humphrey says:

    Whoa. That is all. Whoa.

  4. Actually, that is not all. I felt compelled to write a whole post on it my own site. (Although that’s partly because a commenter once told me the tea parties weren’t racist, but rather that people think that because NPR, the Washington Post, and Newsweek lie and tell them that.)

    I’d comment it here, but it got longer than I’d expected… http://www.starboardbroadside.com/2010/07/clearly-fault-of-mainstream-media.html

    is it april 1? Wow… i bet HE wont suffer and consequences for that.

    sad part is, those people will probably be in full control of all 3 branches of government in 2014. too bad Obama supporters gave up as soon as their every demand wasnt met instantly.

    and here we have it – over on Delawarepolitics.net – they are defending this rube, his comments and the Tea Party.

    I tried posting links to websites where racist “patriots” post on but the post was not allowed by delawarepolitics site monitor

    wonder if it will work here:


    look for Russ Murphy leader of the Delaware 912 patriots

    Bill Colley – right wing talk show host who espouses hatred

    Andrew Jackson – web hoster of the 912 partriots, WGMD and intircally involved in when pigs fy schwartzkopf and member of the tea party

    Duane Bass – AKA dwight mann who posted death threats – BTW – they are all “friends” on the site

    and there is plenty more as well – Tim Pancoast poster for Delawarepolitics is also a 912er

    Robert Cuncic

    Lynn Brannon

    Christian Hudson

    Lynette Johnson

    Alex Garcia

    not to mention the Oathkeepers –

    go look folks – read the posts and the posts of their friends – there is NO DOUBT – the TEA PARTY, THE 912ers are avowed racists – They are all memebers of the DELAWARE RESISTANCE – they can try to remove the posts but now they have been there so long screen shots have long ago been taken – even when they were SCCOR members – a precursor to 912

    see when the light comes on the cockroaches scurry away – wonder how the Representatives and Senators that have alligned themselves with these hate-mongers wil last as their online buddies…

    Found linkage for these two, mentioned in this News Journal article, who perhaps should get tagged with an “honorable mention” as well……?

    thought I would share this post from RICK on delawarepolitics.net

    Who cares what the NAACP says?

    They’re still on the plantation, serving ‘Ol Massa up in the big house- and they don’t even know it.

    “Where would You be Without Us, Black Man?”…’Ol Massa Socialist-Democrat

    and they defend the TEA PARTY LOL!!

    Oh my, Aoine. That’s really, really awful, but not surprising. The Tea Party is full of this crap – and everybody knows it.

    I read about the Tea Party Federation expulsion of Tea Party Express. It reminded me of The Judean People’s Front had a falling out with the People’s Front of Judeah.
