Now, everyone will admit that this is racist, and so does the National Tea Party Federation.

Yes! They're starting to get it. Just because someone uses racially-offensive language or writes racially-offensive material later followed by the excuse, "it's just satire," doesn't mean that it is less racially offensive. Good for them!

<<"What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us Coloreds!">>

Thank goodness. That blog post was unbelievably racist, satire or not.

I've only heard things on the fringe of this controversy.

throwing out Williams takes out at least 25% of the Tea Party's base- I'm sure he'll somehow find his way back into the fold....

If this guy called Williams' statements "racist", he would become the enemy within.





Well, given the fact that he was speaking for the party, I'm sure he had his statements all approved and planned out, so there was no chance of tagging him as an enemy.


IMO...it would have been a perfect time to cleanse the party so to speak. They could have used the issue of Williams statements to say, "We do not tolerate such racists remarks. We are not a racist party."
