|Tea Party invokes slavery again!|
Some Black extremist claims that "US BLACK FOLK" are still whining about how we're not getting our fair shake. So it's fair for Black Republicans to use the term "slavery" when it comes to their freedoms being violated. But for the rest of "US BLACK FOLK" who are a little bit more rational, we're not allowed to say it!
Like it's our fault that the economic gap between races is still unequal.
To the Black Republicans, they believe that it's President Barack Obama's fault for the high unemployment in the Black community. Despite over 70 years of achievements and failures, "US BLACK FOLK" are still living in a country where we're the bottom and those who aren't Black are at the top.
Black Republicans don't want to hear about their party being "RACIST". It drives them nuts. White conservatives are the same. They want to say condescending things without being called "RACIST".
The point of the matter is that in one breathe, Black Republicans want to blame the Democratic Party for the economic woes of "US BLACK FOLK". They believe they are SOLELY responsible for the Civil Rights Act. They keep forgetting that those damn Democrats were the ones who integrated the military. They passed the Civil Rights Act. They elected twice the first Black president.
The Huffington Post reports that a New Mexico county tea party leader has sparked controversy by tweeting a meme Wednesday that strongly suggests blacks use the dark legacy of slavery in America for "bitching and moaning about how the world owes them a living."
On the 148th anniversary of the end of slavery, Glynis Racine of the Lincoln County Tea Party Patriots tweeted the following and deleted it shortly thereafter:
|Black conservative tweets a negative comparison.|
"In an apparent attempt to contribute to our modern understanding of American history, the tea party leader reminds followers that early American slavery included African and non-African people alike," wrote the group. "But her quest for 'facts' includes her own assertion that all African-Americans are 'bitching and moaning' about how the world owes them a living.”
“Glynis is exactly the type of fear mongering leader Fox News and the conservative movement push to the front of their movement," said Patrick Davis of Progress Now New Mexico. "They shouldn’t be surprised they are having a hard time recruiting blacks, Hispanics or reasonable people of any color to their side.”
Though she deleted the tweet, Racine defended herself, saying it was time to "move on" from slavery.
The Lincoln County Tea Party Patriots and representatives for TeaParty.org, a national tea party site, did not immediately return requests for comment from The Huffington Post.
The tweet comes at a particularly bad time for conservative groups, which were thrust into the unflattering national spotlight during last week's budget deal negotiations.
In a press conference about the budget deal, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) slammed the Republican Party's more conservative sects, calling their unwillingness to compromise with Democrats "ridiculous," and accusing them of "misleading their followers."
As Boehner said, "Frankly, I just think they've lost all credibility."
Boehner, you can't control your own party! Why do you have an opinion?
