    "Mapp subsequently defended the remark to the San Antonio Express-News, calling use of the slur “as normal as breathing air in South Texas.” He has faced criticism from not only state Democrats, but Cornyn and other state conservatives.

    “That is way out of bounds and I can’t imagine many people in Texas, much less Texas Republicans, voting for that guy,” Bexar County Republican Party chair Robert Stovall told the Express-News. “His views are in no way a reflection of the Republican Party nationally, statewide or in Bexar County.”"

    How much of a reflection is it of the Tea Party?

    We have our local tea party mounting a primary challenge to a US house congress women who is well respected moderate republican. I think I'm going to the next local tea party meeting and see what's up. I've only been a bit involved in tea party activities and most of that was in 2010.

    When I was involved on a pretty limited basis three and four years ago, I don't recall hearing one single racist or antigay comment.

    I see it's pretty much the same people involved, but maybe it's changed so I think I'm going to go find out.

    This is the mission statement for our local tea party. I'll leave the specific city **** out.

    "Our Mission:

    The Mission of the *********** TEA Party is to Unite, Inform, Empower, and Activate Freedom-loving Citizens to peacefully achieve Greater Liberty, Lower Taxes, State Sovereignty, Fiscal Responsibility and Constitutionally limited local, state and federal governments upon which our country was founded.

    The *********** TEA Party is here to connect people in order to make a difference in our community. We provide education opportunities to the community dealing with freedom, government, personal responsibility and more."

    I'm looking at the last few meeting's agendas I see nothing racist or homosexual issues.

    Several of the people I know reasonably well and go in front of them at planning commission, zoning board and city council.

    This is all pretty similar to the Tea Party I was involved with three and four years ago. Where's the hate, racism and homosexual phobia that's claimed to be here. I've never seen or heard any.

    Well what do you expect from Texas, the most virulently xenophobic, homophobic, and racist state in the US. In the overwhelming majority of native Texan minds, hurling vicious racist, homophobic, and xenophobic comments out loud is considered a divine and constitutional right. It is no wonder that Texas is now officially the Giant Tea Party State and no longer the Lone Star State. Go figure.

    None, as a liberal gay man I'd be torn to shreds. Which is why YOU can attend those meetings with impunity. icon_wink.gif

    But I see what the media reports about them, I hear what their political candidates say (like this one), I read what various polls show about Teabagger beliefs.

    Funny, I've never considered you liberal ... leftist yes, but no, not liberal. I'm very liberal, however, and I don't seem to have any trouble in these groups. Maybe it's my approach or maybe our northern Midwest Tea Party groups are very different from what you have in Florida. I was also somewhat active in SoCal Tea Party and I didn't see it there either.

    Could the Bible Belt states be that different? I suppose so if these quotes are accurate and not hugely taken out of context.

    OMFG!!! YOU - LIBERAL??? REALLY???

    That wasn't what you've been telling us for years here. Whereas I'm routinely called a "liberal hen" by you in the RJ conservaposse. I mean, you've just been telling us how you're a proud member of the convervaposse, and now you're a liberal? You possess not a single trait anyone could rationally associate with being a liberal.

    So are we changing our terms now? I get the sense you guys are trying to rebrand yourselves, much like the Republicans said they would after their last election defeat. Well, that lasted about a month, and I give you roughly the same amount of time.

    Prove it ... prove that I ever called you a "liberal hen" .... EVER.

    It was the collective "you" as well you understood. But a nice evasion of the rest of my post.

    Nice evasion, but you said "you" in the Conservaposse. Now, who is the "YOU" you were talking about if not me?

    I care little about the rest of post given that you've posted the same more than 10,000 times
