Who's playing the race card?
I have heard over and over again that the law abiding members of the Tea Party movement are racist and hate mongers. The left has done everything it can to discredit this movement within the parameters of Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals," by clothing health care reform "with moral garments." If the Tea Party movement is racist then why can't the left provide audio or video substantiating this claim?
I had given a speech in March at Freedom Fest in front of Independence Hall on March 6, 2010. I was honored to meet Michael Johns, who travels the country speaking on behalf of the Tea Party movement. During his speech racial slurs and epithets were yelled at him.
Mr. Johns spoke of "Mr. Obama" and the harm this administration has done to this country. An unknown individual began screaming "President Obama! President Obama! White Boy! President Obama!" Obviously, this person was enraged that Mr. Johns didn't use Obama's new title.
I wonder where this unknown etiquette scholar was when the left was saying the same about "Mr. Bush?" I remember hearing the main stream media always using the term Mr. instead of President.
I applaud Mr. Johns as he eloquently continued his speech solidifying his point of the increase in taxes and regulatory problems. So when the left actually has evidence of racism within this movement I would love to hear it. Until then let's talk about the issues because I'm tired of feeling like I'm in high school.
