    Sorry, I heard it was a waiter. Still its the same situation. Guy made a sarcastic comment, got called a smartass. Nothing wrong with that at all.

    They all apologized, but we're still waiting for the Tea Party movement to even admit that there's racism in their crowd.
    They did admit it and said they dont approve of it. It was on that little debate video posted a few pages back. But as they pointed out in the same video, the Tea Party is NOT an organization.

    Not after it was known this was said, but after it was publicized.

    well, it DID take them a year to do it.
    cuz she spoke in July 2009 and it wasn't until it got airplay that everyone found a little righteous indignation.
    cuz I sure heard some chuckling and laughing on the video

    Funny, says on this site they are a non-profit organization.
    https://www.jointheteaparty.us/

    And on this site they have a mission statement.
    http://www.teapartypatriots.org/

    And if they aren't an organization, who are they sending money to in California and Texas?
    http://teaparty.org/donate.html

    How are they not a political organization? If you really want to use the debate shown earlier, then the obvious counter to the "there is no leader of the Tea Party - we are all leaders," is that since everyone in the movement is the leader, everyone is responsible for decrying the racism in it. Since I haven't heard that either, then they are still racist.

    I dont know. Good question. I will email them.

    But you have three different websites claiming to be the official Teaparty website. As said in the video I referred to "The Tea Party is not an organization, but many small groups coming together". Each of those sites could be a completely different group. But I will email all three and if/when they email me back I will post it. Also they said in the video that the vast majority of the Tea Party disapproves of those protesters and the main speakers ask them to leave. I believe that the NAACP would agree that judging an entire group by a few bad apples is wrong.


    I just emailed https://www.jointheteaparty.us/ and this is what they sent me:



    I asked them if they could explain why Mark Williams went on CNN claiming that Tea Party is in no way an organization, when their website says they are a non-profit organization...Well site #1 is a bunch of fuck heads.


    Part of the mission statement for site #2
    Tea Party Patriots, Inc. as an organization believes in the Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets. Tea Party Patriots, Inc.
    Arj, thank you for this. I want to know WTF is going on.

    Site #3. I emailed every single contact they have listed and everyone came back as a fake email.

    After going through the websites I was quite confused. So I thought I should email Mark Williams site as well. I informed them of my findings and of how all three sites claim to be the official site and all three claim the Tea Party is an organization. I then asked if they knew the true Tea Party official site.




    P.S. This might be premature, but I am calling bullshit on site # 1 and Site #3. Their entire site is about selling shit and becoming an official member. Its like eco credits. These morons are selling stuff to dumber morons just so they san feel better about themselves. As I stated in the Prius thread, I hate douchebag bumper stickers, political views irrelevant.

    And then of course it came out that the video was edited to fuck and back.

    I guess people didn't learn from Acorn.

    Oh wait, you thought that was a true story?
    I'm here a week now... waiting for a mission... getting softer. Every minute I sit in front of this computer, I get weaker, and every minute Charlie squats in the gym, he gets stronger

    A coalition? I wonder if this is the main "head" of the Tea Party.

    Yeah, referencing the above, I actually posted the CNN story of the libel on my facebook. It appears the Tea Party released a heavily edited video of that woman's statement to conservative outlets who then broadcast it without vetting the source. She lost her job as a result.

    That was some incredibly dirty shit right there.

    When you have to lie to make a point, you don't have a point to begin with. These are the caliber of people who want to put politicians in office.

    CNN has been known to edit videos. Like when they edited an interview with prowrestler John Cena to make it look like he admitted to using steroids and WWE allowed it. Then TMZ showed the uncut version and CNN claimed it was for time reasons...Bullshit.

    jointheteaparty.us answered with this:

    thank you for your inquiry.

    Great question by the way. The tea party is a movement not a single
    organization. It is made up of hundreds of organizations and millions of
    Americans supporting it. Our non profit organization JoinTheTeaParty.us is
    the national recruiting engine for the tea party movement. Mark Williams is
    part of the tea party express which is a separate organization. Together we
    all make up the "Tea Party" movement. It is grass roots in nature therefore
    there is not just one organization or just one leader.

    Hope that cleared it up for you.

    Have a great day and week and thanks again for your inquiry.

    Sincerely,

    Todd Cefaratti
    Executive Director
    JoinTheTeaParty.us
    Has made some good points, but didnt really answer the question. I still dont like his site, seems like some crap to me.



    I also think that the NAACP should distance themselves from groups like the New Black Panthers. The New Black Panther Party is identified by the ADL and the SPLC as a hate group. Even the former members of the original Black Panther Party (Founded in 1966, the New Black Panther Party was founded in 1989) do NOT approve of the NBPP. Among these was Robert F. Williams former President of the NAACP North Carolina chapter. NAACP has lost a lot of its integrity over the years. You cant talk of Dr. King and then approve of voter intimidation. If you dont think that the NAACP has gone astray from their cause, listen to Martin Luther King's Drum Major speech. Also if you can find it, read Negroes With Guns.

    Absolutely agree with both statements, and I would add both reverends to the first statement, but they have a celebrity following the NAACP won't give up any time soon.
