No Racism Here


Tea Party Rally

Ah, there's nothing like a mid summer gathering of the tea party to bring out their best. And on Capitol Hill, July 15th, it was no exception. People gathered, they picnicked, socialized (oops, perhaps poor choice of words) they had social intercourse (oops,wrong again), they jaw-boned with one another. It was a joyous day and to cap it off, there were a few guest speakers. Real live senators like Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions spoke; and the House was represented to, by none other than Steve King. It doesn't get much more star-filled in the right-wingnut world than that.

What these elected officials had to say was simply we won't allow for "illegal  immigrants" to become legal. We don't want them as part of the patchwork quilt that makes up America. Simply put, "Aliens go home."

Now those bigoted, inflammatory orations actually paled to the keynote speaker for the festivities. That honor belonged to Ken Crow -- a co-founder of the Tea Party Community. He stepped up to the microphone, to address the assembled on the "breeding" and tarnished racial purity that has resulted and must be cleansed. Maybe you should hear it for yourself.

Now what you didn't see, but was reported by George Zornick of  The Nation was this: Ken Crow arguing for eugenics and calling African-Americans a "retrograde species."

Flip now 1000 years into the future. Earth's most advanced species will be baboons who will look back to 2013 and tell their off-spring that this primitive creature (Ken Crow) is what they descended from when evolution kicked in, and Crow, Cruz, and King were among the earliest and lowest forms of the ape species. And those young gorillas will laugh in amazement to think they evolved from such primitive, simpleton creatures. And they'll be right.

Do we just stand by and say and do nothing? Or do we "saner" folks get out our vote and silence ignorance and give tolerance and brotherhood a chance -- not a white hood.


VIDEO: Ear plug alert! Once again, Sharron Angle sings– yes, sings– at a tea party event.


I admit it. Back in April I subjected you to this, via the Maddow Blog:

Now my buddy and Blunt video contributor @jazzcattrio is adding to our pain. The tea baggers invaded Napa Valley here in California yesterday, thanks to the Tea Party Express documented it:

And though some promised GOP presidential candidates didn't materialize (they'll hit the tour later, we're told), 50's crooner Pat Boone was a no-show, and even rapper Polatik took a pass, we were able to capture former U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle hitting the stage with an capella version of "God Bless America'' -- uh, before while hawking her latest book.

Ready? Get those ear plugs out, hide the kids, and spare your pets by opening the doggie door, here she comes again:

Now hop over to to check out the other two videos. You ain't seen nothin' yet.

Hint: "I think Rick [Perry] looks great... I think people have to really put aside ideology..."

Right. Put aside ideology and support a tea party candidate like Rick Perry. That isn't contradictory at all.

How to get the best of a Teabagger Fundie


Just had to share this from a wonderful DKos diary (pics too) about a silent protest at a "Tea Party Express" stop outside Milwaukee yesterday-

  •  * [new] Dave's sign says "Blessed are the Rich." 

    That throws people off. One guy, a minister, confronted him for sacrilege. Dave asked him, "what does it say in the Bible?"

    The Minister replied, "Blessed are the poor..."

    Dave said, "Exactly!"

    Dave knows how to talk to these people.


The Tea Party Express getting jittery about Wisconsin recalls, resorts to talking points about Soros


Look who has their hand out to try to douse the colossal backfire caused by Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's anti-American union busting bills:

Hey tea baggers, guess why MoveOn has raised so much money. Go ahead, I'll wait.

Here's a clue.

And seriously, they're still using Soros as a talking point? Did they forget about this?
