    1. "The Tea Party movement has an image problem that it is urgently trying to change: It's viewed as a whites-only group.

    "We do need to reach out," says Matt Kibbie, president of FreedomWorks, one of the leading Tea Party organizing groups. To bring in more African-Americans and Hispanics, he said that FreedomWorks has started a new Web site, called "Diverse Tea," where minorities can share their stories of backing Tea Party candidates.

    "The goal is to build a platform for a diverse group of Tea Party leaders from across the country, African-Americans, Jews, Hispanics, others that have come to this movement, because there is this nagging perception that we are not diverse. I disagree with that," he said."

    And....in a related story:

    2. "A photo of Obama’s “army” originally posted on the campaign’s Tumblr site and run in conjunction with a BuzzFeed story on the Obama campaign reveals a stunning lack of diversity among the president’s Chicago staff.

    The Obama campaign’s Chicago headquarters has it all—from Jack Daniels and Ping Pong to bouncy balls and ironic desk mementos.

    Yet the “army of twenty-somethings” campaign manager Jim Messina has assembled in the president’s hometown is almost uniformly white, according to photos contained in a detailed BuzzFeed report Monday.

    Further examination of the Obama’s campaign’s Tumblr site over the past month reveals very few black individuals—apart from the president and his wife, Michelle—in the pictures posted in the feed."

    Yet...where are all the stories about 'racists'?


    Yet one more example of the double standard, and another lesson for the Right:
    Never expect equal treatment.

    Yep, there is still a tea party and it is STILL very influential. Well, it is in some parts of the country. You know, the parts where people get out and work and pay TAXES and are sick and tired of these politicans selling this countries soul for the next entitlement so that they can buy votes and get re-elected over and over again.

    I realize that an organization dedicated to sane economic policies do not fit well into the "cradle to grave" mentality of those on the extreme left. But hey, for those of us who you demand pay for it, we have decided that we don't want to play your game anymore...

    Well, they certainly aren't influential.

    it has been open to all races, religions and sexes.

    Yet tea party oprganizers realized that not enough "non whites" are participating.

    So they want to get the word out there.

    And you find that as a means to insult them?

    And, of course, a complete diversion on your part from the point of the thread.

    But we expect that from you.

    They say that but they are still going to endorse Romney and vote for him. The tea party was nothing but a mid-term republican stunt, at least as far as the republicans are concerned, and the tea party rank and file is going to let them get away with it without complaint. They already abandoned their anti corporate corruption plank, they will eventually abandon the rest that differentiates them in any way from regular everyday republicans.

    Really?

    So many people on the left said the tea party held the nation hostage.

    INCLUDING POLITICIANS on the left side.

    I am glad to see you calling them out as liars.

    But I bet you vote for those liars again.......

    Speaks volumes about you.
