They're not even worth the time it takes to type a vitriolic response.

i will add that this guy isn't a Tea Party leader, he isn't going on TV acting as a pundit for the Tea Party, he isn't a spokesman, he isn't anyone of any actual importance.

however, it's very important to continue to point out that the Tea Party hits on every single racist, populist, sexist, homophobic, white identity panic button that the GOP has played since at least the 1990s, and when you do that, the crazies are going to come out of the woodwork and stand right alongside you. you can say you're not racist all you want, but clearly, you've provided a warm, safe space for someone to come and be a big racist and flex those white cultural panic muscles.

you can claim it's all about taxes and spending, but for many, many people, "tax and spend" means "tax the whites, spend on the blacks."

True, but he exemplifies a big portion of the Tea Party.

He exemplifies those that don't recognize bigotry unless it's aimed towards them, that long for the WASP society that exist in Leave it to Beaver reruns, that don't preach love but preach "god" and Amerika, those that fear their "status" may change.

Just like the Koch employee was reported to have said, "let's get the rednecks to the dirty work for us".

Telemprompter Inventor "Hub" Schlafly Dies; Device Changed Public Address in America
April 26, 2011

ABC's Z. Byron Wolf and Brian Canova report:

You’ve never heard of Hubert J. “Hub” Schlafly Jr., but if you’ve seen a major political speech in the past generation, you know his work. Schlafly invented the TelePrompTer and changed public address in America. He died April 20th in Connecticut.

President Barack Obama, is hailed by supporters as a gifted orator. But he has been lambasted by critics for his reliance on the teleprompter. In truth, every President since Dwight D. Eisenhower, excepting Nixon, has used one for major speeches in Congress.

Schlafly, a TV engineer, developed the device in the 1950’s to help soap opera actors remember their lines, according to the Washington Post.

There is nothing else to it.

When will some of you put your crayons back in the box?

I don't like President Obama's policies.

So that makes me a racists?


I didn't like President Bush.

Does that make me a racists?

Oh
I guess it doesn't with people who keep checking things
with crayons.

Not one person in here has ever stated that you're a racist if you don't like Obama's policies.

NOT ONE!

Why is it soooooo hard for you to address the actual topics? Surely you're informed enough to do so, right?

Drop the crayons talk, drop the s and be adult enough to engage, if not do not waste our time.

At first I was like, "Oh, I think he's just saying 'negros' like a redneck", then I was like "Oh, wait, he just listed 'blacks' and 'nigras' separately".

Good times.

You're not a racist. Bigot? Maybe. One thing's for sure, you may dislike many current Republicans, but you revel in the same art of taking offense to things and making sure people know about it, goshdarnit!

well, someone's certainly playing the race card. the conservative's always play this "don't call me a racist!" card whenever the subject comes up, because it's far worse to be accused of racism than actually being racist.

The 2000s have been the decade where we've refined "being offended by something* to an art.

I blame cable news and conservative talk radio.
