The Tea Party is racist. There, I said it. The. Tea. Party. Is. Racist. No more dancing around the question. Anyone who could question the birth certificate of someone as vetted as President Obama is coming from a hateful, illogical place. For anyone to say they don’t “know” a man who has written two best selling books on his life experiences and personal philosophies, they are just choosing to remain ignorant. This ignorance is based on fear. Fear that they will never have the false nostalgic 1950s’ outlook on life again. President Obama’s election has forced them out of the closet. They have to stand in the clear light of day and acknowledge that race no longer automatically puts them at the top of the food chain. Their worst nightmares have come true. The slaves finally revolted - not with guns, but with education and determination. It is driving them to the madness that the White House has been smudged with Brown. This mad-Tea Party disease has been very profitable for the Rushes, the Glenns, and unfortunately our main stream media. All are so sworn to the ultimate goal of selling ad time, they have no qualms widening a divide that could do great harm to this country. For millionaires like Rush and Glenn to feed off the fears of these people is disgusting. The only way we can stop these social vampires and bring this country back from the tipping point is to go ahead and acknowledge the elephant (yes, GOP I am looking at you) in the room. The Tea Party is racist. And you know what, in a country built on personal freedom, they are allowed to be who they are. So fine, it’s your right to promote your racist agenda. But, it’s not within your rights to co-opt this country. You cannot let your fear destroy this country. The rest of us cannot stand by like asses (yes, Democrats I am looking at you) and let it happen. We have to acknowledge where this “energy” is coming from and who is manipulating it for ad dollars, before we can overcome it. And it must be overcome. We are wasting our time debating President Obama’s birth certificate while the country is slipping into poverty. We are wasting our time questioning President Obama’s faith while our children are losing the math and science skills they will need to keep our country viable in the future global economy. We are wasting our time condemning the First Lady for taking a vacation while we should be concentrating on strengthening our economic ties to our allies and leveraging them into a new green economy. So, let’s take that first step and acknowledge the racist rantings for what they are. The best way to dispel fear is to bring it out in the open. Tea Party step out into the light. Let your racist flag fly free. You don’t have to wink, wink your racial indictors anymore - Luo tribesman this, Luo tribesman that. It’s okay, the country is mature enough to accept you for what you are, racists. We are also grown enough not to let you destroy us, see you in November!
