Yes, I'm linking up to another Another Black Conservative post and YES, I'm ANGRY!!!!!
This is a post from The Jawa Report at Infowars posted yesterday:
On April 15th thousands of right-wingers will attend rallies in cities and towns across the United States. The organizers of this nationwide day of protest call it a tea party. This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers. If the tea party movement continues to grow in size and strength there is a big chance they will dominate this country in the near future. If the tea party movement takes over this country they will really hurt poor people by getting rid of social programs like food stamps, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, student aid, free health care, etc. The tea party movement will say these programs must be gotten rid of because hard-working taxpayers cannot afford to pay for these things especially when the economy is in a depression. There are three options we have with the tea party movement:
1. Organize counter-protests against the tea party demonstrations, same time, same place. This is probably the best option. We need to get in the streets on April 15th and show the tea party movement that there are lots of people out there who oppose their agenda.
2. Get individual tea party protesters to leave the right-wing and move to the left politically. That would involve passing out stuff like this at the tea party demonstrations: http://www.anarchist-studies.org/node/299
3. Ignore the tea party movement. This is the worst option because without anyone opposing them they could easily gain power.

I'm beyond pissed at THIS statement:
This tea party movement that emerged only a year ago is a coalition of conservatives, anti-Semites, fascists, libertarians, racists, constitutionalists, militia men, gun freaks, homophobes, Ron Paul supporters, Alex Jones conspiracy types and American flag wavers.
FIRST, WHEN did it become a bad thing to be an American flag waver!??!?!!??!?! Umm, we ARE AMERICANS!!! And I, for one, AM VERY PROUD OF THAT FACT!!!!
Secondly (but NO less important) ANTI-SEMITIC!??!?!?! REALLY!?!?!?!? Oh my Heavens, these people have seriously got to do more research before they open their mouths and make complete idiots of themselves. Do the research people: Most conservatives are BEGGING the government to stand behind Israel and the Jewish people. Obama is barely tolerating our alliance with Israel and has been threatening to to end our support of them in favor of supporting militant Muslims...not only that, but here's several photos from a liberal protest. (Scroll down to photos of liberal protest in LA 3/20/10) Need I say more about which side of the fence is anti-Semitic?
And racist????? Oh yeah, because I didn't vote for Obama, I'm a racist. I forgot. Let's forget for a minute that I absolutely would have voted for Condi Rice in a heartbeat..she doesn't count. She's a woman and a conservative..that must cancel out her racial heritage. Oh yeah, and I guess all the photos out there (just google 'minorities at Tea Parties') of minorities at Tea Parties don't count either. And what about all the strong conservative black leaders out there that are garnering huge amounts of support from *GASP* Caucasians???? Can the left STOP playing the race card for a MOMENT please!
And fascists? Let's just define that for a moment please. "A political theory advocating an authoritarian hierarchical government (as opposed to democracy or liberalism)"....Most Tea Partiers are for less government last time I checked and no, we don't want absolute rule..we want democracy..and the government to listen to the majority. The majority (libs and cons) didn't want government ran health care. And sorry, again, Tea Partiers are not for a class system. Check out your facts there, again, bub. But we are absolutely not for a redistribution of wealth. You work hard, you move forward or you don't..but you are responsible for where you are in life.
At this point I'm just getting exhausted responding to this ludicrous piece of garbage. But I will say this. Conservatives don't believe in gay marriage (or most of us don't) but that doesn't mean we are homophobes. We just believe that God authorizes marriage and it's between a man and a woman...certainly gay couples deserve any and all benefits from a legal union..but don't call it marriage. Gun Freaks?? Since when is believing in the Second Amendment make you a gun freak? Oh wait, we're also not supposed to believe in the Constitution apparently.
What liberals really want is America not to BE America. But I refuse to give up my country.
