The claims of racism in the Tea Party movement are so overblown and unsubstantiated that the best Think Progress could do to prove racism was post a video of four supposed racist Tea Partiers. Right Klik has found that of those four, two of them were not even in the Tea Parties.
Here is how Think Progress introduces the video:
ThinkProgress has produced a short video demonstrating the vile racism that has been exhibited at some Tea Party events...
TEA PARTY ACTIVIST1: He’s too black to be President.
TEA PARTY ACTIVIST2: I’m a proud racist, I’m white.
TEA PARTY ACTIVIST3: Afro-Leninism! Coming to you on a silver platter, Barack Hussein Obama!
TEA PARTY ACTIVIST4: Go home wetbacks!.
Below is Think Progress’s supposed footage
Racist #2 was kicked out of the Tea Party and last time I checked, if you are expelled from a group you are not usually considered part of the group. I cannot be an LA Laker just for showing up to a practice.
Racist # 4 was caught in 2006, well before the Tea Party movement was even conceived.
This smoke and mirror show coming out of Think Progress says something for the credibility of claims against the Tea Party movement. If the best the progressives can do to level a charge of racism against the Tea Party requires supplanting non-Tea Party members, then you can be sure there is more to nonsense than to sense in such claims.
If you want some real racism, that is really part of the progressive movement, then I direct you to the very real video below. Unlike Think Progress, I don’t need to manufacture evidence concerning the progressive movement.
Racist #1 aka "Obama is too black" was not referring to Obama's skin color when you watch the video in full context.
You be the judge.
Think Progress made my past link to their video private, I've updated the link so that it can be viewed.
(LCR Addition to update) - Confederate Yankee is hot on the trail of these Think Progress leftist-misfits. On the alleged 'tea party racism' video being scrubbed he writes:
Indeed, I wonder of George Soros thinks this is money-well-spent? Nice work, Think Progress.
Merely blocking that video and replicating it elsewere doesn't do you any favors, or save you any embarrassment. Amusingly, it it indicates that you know you have a problem, but that you simply don't care to correct your lies.
I'd feel sorry for you, if you had souls.
But your offending article is still online. Your video may change locations, but is easily relinked. The more often you do it, the more obvious your panic becomes.
About the only thing you can do at this point to save face is to issue a retraction, but we know that isn't likely to happen either, is it?
That wold require humility and integrity, two character traits that have rarely burdened you.
LCR Update x3: A milestone - Conservative Generation gets his own Memorandum thread! Also read - Blue Collar Todd's video collage.
LCR Update x4: RightKlik screen-caps the scene of the Think Progress crime:
RightKlik writes about the shot above: Screen cap from a libelous ThinkProgress video AFTER the "wetback" comment from 2006 was removed. Think Progress had originally claimed the "wetback" comment was shouted at a tea party, clearly a stupid claim, as the Tea Party did not exist until 2009.
Another screen cap from Think Progress:
LCR Update x5: Racist #2 was kicked out of the Tea Party, now a new photo emerges that clearly shows his' infiltrator' credentials:
Also, I cropped and zoomed for Soros-trolls (read Think Progress) that can't read:
Nice work, Think Progress.
RightKlik notes that if one plays the Think Progress video at the top of this post, frame by frame, one can clearly see the signs behind racist #2 designating his unwelcomed status.
Bonus - Racist #2 reminds me of an idiot that I tagged and bagged recently at the Oceanside Tea Party Tax Day Tea Party.....
Updated x6: Sara in Italy has an awesome post up that expands upon the above, be sure to read it.
