Appearing on television recently, comedian , had this to say about the “Tea Party” demonstrations:
“Let’s be very honest about what this is about. It’s not about bashing Democrats, it’s not about taxes, they have no idea what the Boston tea party was about, they don’t know their history at all. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up”.
She went on to call the people who attend such protests, “a bunch of teabagging rednecks”.
Former President Jimmy Carter has also added to the accusations of racism by saying:
“I think an overwhelming portion of the intensely demonstrated animosity toward President Barack Obama is based on the fact that he is a black man, that he’s African-American”.
On Oct 25th The Tea Party Express made the second stop in it’s cross-country tour of the United States, at Griffith Park, in Los Angeles.
So I went down to have a look for myself.
