Glenn Beck vs. the Tea Party

Glenn Beck calling Tea Party members who support Trump racist has created a tsunami of disappointment, hurt, and anger. Beck's accusation is unfair. Conservative friends and political experts have been pulling their hair out, baffled over Trump's popularity even among Christian conservatives.

I get it why Tea Party folks are rallying behind Trump. Frankly, they view Trump, warts and all, as their last chance for real change in Washington. I have been a black member of the Tea Party movement from the “get-go”; a little southern language. Speaking and singing at over 500 Tea Party rallies nationwide over the years, I have stood in the cold, snow and rain -- endured blazing sun and heat with patriots. Though the crowds were mostly white, race was a nonissue. Stopping socialism and Obama lawlessly governing against the Constitution and the will of the American people was our only mission. I proudly stood with my white brother and sister patriots in mutual love for America; fearful of seeing her transformed into the Left's Nirvana; a godless wasteland of government dependency and debauchery.

Patriots spent millions in travel and contributions; promised by the GOP to stop Obama if given the House and Senate. The GOP lied. It is heartbreaking that the GOP,led by new House Speaker Ryan, just approved funding ObamaCare, the arrogantly evil Planned Parenthood, and more of Obama's leftist dreams. 

Even after this latest huge betrayal by the GOP, Beck beats up on patriots for saying, “Screw it, I'm supporting Trump!” The support for Trump is about Americans being fed up with PC, done with kissing the MSM's butt and grateful for someone boldly standing up for America. Pro politicians have stabbed patriots in the back multiple times.

I really take exception with Beck and the MSM relentlessly calling the Tea Party racist. My experiences confirm that many blacks and the Left are racist, not the Tea Party.

For example: In 2008, my black family and practically every black person I knew boldly admitted they were voting for Obama solely because he was black. Well, that is racist. Whenever I advised that they explore who Obama was as a person and his vision for America, blacks looked at me as though I had two heads. Racist pundits called attempts to vet Obama racist. Obama received 96% of the black vote. Outrageously, the Left called whites not voting for Obama racists; blacks like me were called Uncle Toms. The Left has exploited Obama's race from day one, decreeing it racist to oppose Obama leading their radical hostile takeover of America.

Beck calling Tea Party members racist caused me to revisit a few experiences I had on the road with the Tea Party -- 500 rallies across America.

Numerous patriots apologized to me for opposing Obama and even confided that they voted for Obama, but not for socialism.

At a rally in Michigan, a white woman in a wheelchair treated me like her rock star hero. I was extremely moved upon learning what the woman's adult daughter told one of our staff. “My mom is dying. She said all she wanted to do is meet Lloyd Marcus.” How humbling is that? Does that sound like a racist to you, folks?

In Texas at a rally, I was approached by a tall white central casting looking cowboy wearing a cowboy hat. He was pushing a stroller with two black babies. He and his white wife had recently adopted them from Africa. He said they prayed for God to give them kids who truly needed their love. The proud papa was excited about the kids becoming official U.S. citizens. Is this the behavior of a racist?

The atmosphere at the Tea Party rallies were always upbeat, positive, hopeful and patriotic, unlike the Left's rallies (Occupy Wall Street) that were anti-America, profane, hateful, violent and destructive of property. 

It was even reported how clean the Tea Party left the mall in DC after our rally in which over a million attended to stop ObamaCare. 

Occasionally, the MSM would corner me, a black guy, at a rally trying to put me on the defensive. “Where are the blacks?” My answer was I had never seen a sign saying blacks are not welcome. It is not the Tea Party's fault that blacks have chosen to go brain dead in loyalty to skin-color.

I still smile thinking about the white gentlemen I met at a rally in Montana. He invited me to his gazillion acre ranch to shoot guns then sit on his porch smoking cigars and drinking scotch while enjoying the beautiful sunset. I do not indulge in any of the activities he mentioned. However, his kinsmanship and sincerity were genuine.

While I get the enthusiasm for Trump, I still say Sen. Ted Cruz is the man I am confident will give Americans what they truly desire; a real conservative who is rock-solid in his commitment to turn Obama's mess around; making America great again.
