    “So if you’ve got a big government progressive or a big government progressive in Obama, one in Newt Gingrich, one in Obama, ask yourself this Tea Party: Is it about Obama’s race? Because that’s what it appears to be to me. If you’re against him but you’re for this guy, it must be about race. It’s the policies that matter.”

    No he didn't. But please don't let your lack of comprehension get in the way of being informed of your opinion.

    Did you learn a different English than the rest of us?

    BECK: If you have a big government progressive, or a big government progressive in Obama, one in Newt Gingrich, one in Obama, ask yourself this, Tea Party: is it about Obama’s race? Because that’s what it appears to be to me. If you’re against him but you’re for this guy, it must be about race.

    Both Gingrich and Obama are big government proponents. One of the core principles of the TEA Party is small government. So, why would members of the TEA Party (those for SMALL government) support one BIG government candidate (Gingrich) but not another (Obama)? Answer, because Obama is black.

    Do I agree with Beck? Probably not. But what he said seems clear to me. He did not call the TEA Party racist. But please don't let a rational analysis of his words get in the way of your partisan bullshit.

    I'm sure there is a reason why so many people spin facts instead of presenting with honesty and logic. But I really haven't worked it out yet.

    Beck is certifiable, who the hell cares what he said.

    He didn't call them racist, naw. He just said they appear to be racist, to him.

    What worries me is that so few people couldn't see what he meant. We must have some serious problems in our public education system that so many Americans seem to lack even basic comprehension skills.

    No he didn't. He said if they don't support Obama (Big Government, progressive, nanny state policies) but you do support Gingrich (Big Government, progressive, nanny state policies).... then it appears to be about Obama's race.

    I don't support Obama.

    I don't support Gingrich (for the reason that I view him as another Obama/Bush/etc).

    I support the TEA Party principles.

    This is not fucking rocket science.
