I thought it was interesting that the big Tea Party Convention was held in Nashville, Tennessee instead of someplace let's say like Boston. So this sparked my interest.
As you know the Tea Party folks claim to be "non racists" and diverse. Hold on now let's take a look at the evidence. Like they say if it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck and has feathers like a duck, it's a duck!
The Tea Party Convention was held during February, African American History Month in the state of Tennessee which is the same state back on December 24th, 1865 that gave birth to a group called The Klu Klux Klan.
I think most of us reading this article will consider the KKK a racist group. But with the Tea Party this is just coincidence. Yeah, right.
Let's move on a bit from 1865 to 1867 and move to the city of Nashville, Tennessee. The KKK needed organization after being formed in 1865, so in 1867 the group met in Nashville, Tennessee for their first ever national gathering.
Who else met in Nashville for their first national gathering in 2010- that's right the Tea Party. I know Tea Party loyalists are going to be in denial that this is their first national gathering so here's proof- The Times on Line. Also here's a reference to the birth of the KKK and their first national convention in 1867 in Nashville. Of course this is just pure coincidence- and I got the some cheap land to sell you. LOL
Let's move on just a little bit to some Tea Party associations; one of the Tea Party support groups is the Council of Conservative Citizens which is a reformation of the White Citizens Councils of the south that fought against desegregation tooth and nail.Â My parents and grand parents used to call them the "Uptown Klan" or "suit and tie KKK". The Council of Conservative Citizens is classified by the renowned Southern Poverty Law Center as a white hate group. And to be specific the Council of Conservative Citizens is classified asÂ "white nationalist"Â in ideology.
Let's continue on a bit, Tea Party movement participation is encouraged by the CCC because the Tea Party movement is full of hate and racism and provides a fertile pool of potential recruits for the Council of Conservative Citizens whom members participate in Tea Party events, pass out cards and literature in hopes of gaining membership.
OK, I see I forgot to mention the John Birch Society and their Tea Party involvement. You got it right, JBS supports the Tea Party and show it on their website right here. And proof of JBS having extremist views is the fact they are listed as one of those radical, paranoid Patriot groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
So when it comes to the Tea Party being de factoÂ racist, if it walks like a duck, has feathers like a duck and quacks like a duck- it's a duck!
