    I don't think that that's true. But I do think that the popular response would be VERY different. Hell, there were more people in the Million Man March than all the tea parties put together, and the Black Panthers used to walk around with assault rifles.

    The "real world"? Is that the name of the planet YOU live on?

    Whether or not it happened doesn't matter. If it did happen, then the guy who did it was an asshole. It doesn't mean that all the tea partiers are racists.

    These arguments are all equally retarded - No one in their right mind could argue that everyone in the tea parties are racist, but no one in their right mind could argue that NONE of the tea partiers are racist.

    I'm sure that some of them are - just like I'm sure that there are a few "welfare queens" in the world. But to claim that EVERYONE at the tea parties are racist is as retarded as claiming EVERYONE on welfare is a welfare queen.

    Only Blacks Protesting being overtaxed, and the Federal Gov't being too large.

    I prefer to imagine them plaid.

    Makes things much more interesting.
