    Frances Fox Piven has fired another shot across the Tea Party bow in her latest attempt to make the movement look barbarically racist.

    Piven, professor of Sociology at City University Of New York, made some startling accusations about her views on race while speaking on a panel in Stony Brook, N.Y. Ms. Piven discussed her views about how detrimental the Tea Party is for race relations in America in rather frank terms.

    She began by asking the audience and fellow panelists if anyone had been to a Tea Party rally before.


    “Well I have,” Piven announces, continuing, “And you know what they yell? Take It Back! Take It Back! Take It Back!”


    Kenneth Gladney, Tea Party activist

    The scholar Piven, went on to explain the dark, racist, xenophobic implications of the popular chant:


    “And you know what they’er talking about? They’re talking about taking the country back from those dark skinned foreign-looking people who threaten to become a demographic majority.”

    Piven goes on to justify her position by saying the states controlled by the “organized Right” are taking away the voting rights of minorities because they don’t want “those newcomers to have the vote.”

    Piven has been a longtime, ardent defender of the Occupy and Labor movements.

    Well the left has certainly succeeded in dividing the country and stirring racial hatred. Wonder what they're going to do with that? They certainly can't expect the Republicans to join hands with them now and sing kum by ya now can they? oh wait just a moment. :D

    "Take it Back" is code for removing the left wing loons from any level of power in this country. If some happen to be of color, so be it.
    The left is looking quite foolish now with their endless charges of racism. It has been obvious for some time. Without spoken or written word to prove it, they have now advanced to mind reading.
