    Teabagger Organizer Mark Williams sends a letter in response to the NAACP's request to purge its ranks of racists and racist remarks
    and this is what we get
    Dear Mr. Lincoln

    We Coloreds 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 coloreds. That means we Coloreds 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 coloreds 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.

    Sincerely

    Precious Ben Jealous, Tom’s Nephew NAACP Head Colored Person

    Pretty danged tacky.

    In other words, just about what one might expect, considering the source.

    They're not even hiding the racism anymore. In the end, I think that'll be a good thing for America. Let's expose them to the light of truth instead of ignoring them.

    The guy who wrote this, Williams, is the SPOKESPERSON for the Tea Party Express. Even if you completely discount all other allegations of racist activity at their events, this is pretty damning.

    I'm sure he'll pull a Limbaugh/Coulter/Malkin/etc. and say he was misunderstood and the letter is being taken out of context.

    It's entertaining to read about the tea party drama.

    Apparently this guy's antics is what prompted the National Tea Party Federation (NTPF) to sever ties with the Tea Party Express (TPE) because the TPE wouldn't fire this guy. Which is good in a way because now Democrat candidates can associate Williams with their political opponents who receive funding from the TPE, including Nevada Senator hopeful Sharonn Angle and Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown.

    Thanks again Tea Party for all that you do.

    The fall-out: Williams has been booted from the National Tea Party Federation, according to spokesperson David Webb this morning on Face the Nation. CNN reports:

    “We, in the last 24 hours, have expelled Tea Party Express and Mark Williams from the National Tea Party Federation because of the letter that he wrote,” Webb said of the blog post by Williams that satirized a fictional letter from what he called “Colored People” to President Abraham Lincoln.

    Webb called the blog post “clearly offensive.”

    That was clearly offensive and yet this WASN'T?????? icon_rolleyes.gif

    his "apology" was... ahem... unacceptable. here is some interesting video of him, and a link discussing all this:





    he wrote that letter and has the gall to talk about demagoguery? i'm not sure i understand the "thought process" used to explain all this. it'd be one issue if i thought the teabaggers were informed and intelligent... this is something else altogether... insane insane insane...

    Most of the stuff you guys post on here attacking the few of us who are not liberal / Democrats is just as or way more offensive.




    "There you go again," ignoring the topic of the thread in order to push your own agenda.
    I take that to mean that you agree with the Republican Teabaggers' racist views.
    And, I'm not the least bit surprised.

    This is too easy. From the guy who gives us the endless stream of faux news stories from extreme right-wing sources attacking President Obama and Democrats, he says: "Most of the stuff you guys post on here attacking the few of us who are not liberal..."

    Echoing in my ear is that old saying: "He can dish it out but he can't take it."

    BTW, right wing groups have a history of expelling guys who go too far in their PUBLIC pronouncements (ie, they get caught at it), while the core right-wingers keep marching to a Fascist drum. I wouldn't be too quick to exonerate the Tea Party because they booted this guy; they just needed the public spotlight off him as quickly as possible. But fear not, many of them still think the same way.

    In the meantime, of course he's spinning, saying it was "satire." Yeah, like slavery was satire. icon_razz.gif

    A lot of us are hearing the same thing, Wilton.

    Pathetic, ain't it?

    Yikes; I forgot that über-douche Glenn Beck and his anti-American minions are planning to befoul that site.

    Well, be aware that this White guy is profoundly sorry & disgusted that will be happening.

    Yet I will be frank & truthful with you, because I admire you very much, as I've said here before, and I think you can understand what I am going to say. I was a teenager when MLK Jr. was all across our American TV screens, giving that famous speech and much more. And I was conflicted, as teenage boys are about nearly everything.

    Was he just a bothersome and uppity Black? Who was this guy disturbing the status quo? I don't need this threat to my comfort zone. And when you're a teen, your comfort zone is remarkably narrow, defined by the remnants of your childhood super-ego.

    But advancing age has brought, I hope, a hint of wisdom, that allows me to understand the landmark importance of MLK that I didn't appreciate in my youth. And for some media megalomanic like Glenn Beck, and his right-wing followers, to distort & pervert that legacy, is revolting in the extreme.

    This will be one of the lowest points in American politics in history. I will be interested to see who among us here endorses it.

    Uh... what does you being white have to do with anything?

    Couldn't you have left out the obvious fact that you are white?

    Or do you practice the politics of race?
    I'm not sure if the apology is needed or Not

    But the fact that These People are using MLK's name to Further Their agenda
    Someone needs to apologize for and it's not Wilton

    One, this story is all over and the letter has been authenticated and this guy has been tossed out of the Tea Party Federation.

    Two, I don't hate SouthBeach or any other teabagger. I feel sorry for their lack of education and insight into what has happened to our country over the past forty odd years.

    Three, liberals are known for questioning each other, the gov't, the press, etc. We do not march in lockstep with our "leaders". That what your side does.
