Race or Prejudice- Right vs Left

Lets, for a moment, take a look at the attacks from the left on the Tea Party Patriots.
First off, I will not post any pictures, regardless if the left says it has proof of racism from the TPP.
We just don't know whether the pictures we see on the web are for real, or infiltrators posing at Tea Party Patriots.
The internet is full of pictures back and forth and doctoring is quite easy these days.

Lets look at the definitions of racial bias imposed by the left on TPP. (Highlights are the subject definitions)

  1. of, relating to, or based on a race 
  2. existing or occurring between races 
  1. a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
  2. racial prejudice 
  1. Injury or damage resulting from some judgment or action of another in disregard of one's rights; especially : detriment to one's legal rights or claims
  2. (1) : preconceived judgment or opinion (2) : an adverse opinion or leaning formed without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge 
  3. An instance of such judgment or opinion
  4. An irrational attitude of hostility directed against an individual, a group, a race, or their supposed characteristics

The left in America think that if you, regardless of your race, say anything even remotely negative of Obama then there exists a gap between races. And therefore you are Racial.

They also believe if you are racial, because of your indifference with Obama, YOU are producing an inherent superiority of a particular race.  And that creates racial prejudice. Or in other words, you are a Racist. 

However, if you look at it from the other end, the left is Prejudice of the Tea Party Patriot, because the left have an adverse opinion without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge
They clearly have an instance of such judgment or opinion  and their attitude is irrational and their hostility is directed against an individual, a group, a race, of their supposed characteristics.

Makes you think a little, doesn't it?

By the way...
The Tea Party Patriots Mission Statement
The impetus for the Tea Party movement is excessive government spending and taxation. Our mission is to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets

Core Values:
  • Fiscal Responsibility
  • Constitutionally Limited Government
  • Free Markets
Their Philosophy (And mine):
·         Tea Party Patriots, Inc. as an organization believes in the Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets. Tea Party Patriots, Inc. is a non-partisan grassroots organization of individuals united by our core values derived from the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution of the United States of America, the Bill Of Rights as explained in the Federalist Papers. We recognize and support the strength of grassroots organization powered by activism and civic responsibility at a local level. We hold that the United States is a republic conceived by its architects as a nation whose people were granted "unalienable rights" by our Creator. Chiefly among these are the rights to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." The Tea Party Patriots stand with our founders, as heirs to the republic, to claim our rights and duties which preserve their legacy and our own. We hold, as did the founders, that there exists an inherent benefit to our country when private property and prosperity are secured by natural law and the rights of the individual.

D    Doesn't sound Racial, Racist or Prejudice to me, now does it?

The only reason they think the Tea Party is racist is because they know they would be too if there was a black conservative leader. We will see racism when blacks and Hispanics choose to leave the Democratic Party. We have seen union members beating up a black man and calling him the N word at a Tea Party. I have been to Tea Parties with my black friends when someone screamed out the car window the N word at them. I've seen the NAACP leaders call black Tea Partiers "uncle toms". Democrats act like they own the blacks and Hispanics for their vote. They look down on these minorities as being less then them and that they need government assisstance to survive. The Democratic Party look at wellfair as a means to lift up the lesser instead of the disabled. The sad thing is I think most blacks and Hispanics believe the Democratic Party because they vote lock and step with the Democratic Party. If they only trusted in themselves instead of the government for a change.

Actually it is the left's usual M.O.(Modus Operandi for those in Rio Linda) but it is simply not working anymore due mostly to a black man being elected president.

They are trying to keep it alive with the Rangel/Waters ethics hearings, but again it is a democrat-controlled situation so just who is doing the 'persecution' here.

Then of course the political line; 'Blame Bush' which to has worn out it's lifespan, finally.

This is why the left media being they broadcast or print are incomprehensible even moreso than before, the standard talking points and arguements from the left are gone and the correct narrative now is belongs solely on the right and the left knows it.

YouTube will be a blast in the coming months!

I just tell people I believe in their (TP)principles and support their cause but I don't belong to any party ever again. Never did the dems, but I threw plenty of time and money into the RNC black hole and never again. Straight to the candidate now.

That way these people can't call the Tea Party racists because I hate GhettObama with the passion I do although it's a political one, not a physical one...however, the Black Panthers wish to kill us and our babies, thus our entire race, which last I checked was genocide.

And they're not the only AA's with that view rest assured.

Chris- Wonder how many hispanics will vote Republican now that Harry 'Ass' Reid opened his mouth.

Christopher- I am now hearing that 76% of the country are saying 'The time for blaming Bush is over and O needs to take responsibility'. They have been using race for Obama well before he got in the the Presidential race of 08.

Ray- "Straight to the candidate now." Good point.
I am registered over on the GOP website (the new one) up loaded a pic I made of the peace sign (two finger V) with a caption of 'Freedom From Obama' and a few 'GOPers' said "This sends a wrong message" I said wait and see, this will speak volumes very soon."
All about ideology, not about skin

Love the GhettObama too. LOL

Obama is a racist. It is pure and simple that actions speak louder than words, and Obama's actions far outweigh his words.

Mark, i don't believe that anything you say is racial even about Obama. I do believe when you (tea party and other cons) attack him using his muslim based middle name you are showing a predjudice. I also think that people who used the term kenyan or african to describe him are shwoing their predjudice.

I do think that the rampant fear that Obama is going to do for only black people is based on a distrust of minorities and shows a predjudice along with a lack of intelligence.

And having read a bunch of CR's posts i am beginning to wonder about his character.

I am alittle suprised at you though. You write a seemingly well-thought out post (aside from some anti-liberal bs) and then you jump on board Ray-rays racist Obama name. I should have seen that coming. I mean come on Son, Ghetto Bama. Really, i mean really? Damn

Real Joe, I am prejudice?
"an adverse opinion without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge"
-Fact, Obama was raised by a muslim.
-Fact, Was raised, until his mother and his father split up, in the muslim faith.
-Fact, He bows to leaders with in the muslim faith.
-Fact, He apologize to Muslims for Americas war against the radical arm of their faith, when the past President clearly stated it was not a war against Islam, but the Radical Ideology Arm.
-Fact, He approves the building of the mosque in NY based on religious freedom, WHEN the debate is respect for OUR fellow Americans who died that day by the hands of the Radicals of their faith.
-Fact, give foreign terrorist US Constitutional rights.
I think there is enough "just'ifiable grounds"

Joe, African? Most black American would rather be referred to as "African"-Americans.
"Obama is going to do for only black people is based on a distrust of minorities and shows a predjudice along with a lack of intelligence."
No Tea Party member that I have ever seen/heard/witnessed ever makes that kind of remark about why they are against Obama.
THATS why I call Liberals "prejudice" as the left have an adverse opinion without just grounds or before sufficient knowledge.
They clearly have an instance of such judgment or opinion and their attitude is irrational and their hostility is directed against an individual, a group, a race, of their supposed characteristics"
And have proven nothing to back up the claim you and the rest of the left have made. = prejudice

GhettoBama... So you think 'ghetto' is a black thing?
Got news from you, IT IS NOT.
Man, Joe, you need to stop for a moment as you set yourself up for that one.

Now as far as your compliment of my posts, I thank you sir.
You are a formidable foe.

Mark, I understand that most of what you said is true and that in the hands a well-thought out individual who's making a serious case in a discussion that its not racist or even prejudice. The problem comes in when it is used in a detractory manner.

Thats the issue. When race or ethnicity is constantly used in that manner it speaks to a dislike deeper than just partisan. The Tea Party and those on the right not associated with the Tea Party have all said and used the terms, Kenyan, Black, African etc. in a manner thats not thoughtful nor interested in a debate.

The "African" statement comes from a sign i saw from a Tea Party gathering discussing Obama. It wasn't you or I but some white Tea Party person holding the sign. I'll try to find the link.

Mark, i'm not going to accept that a term that during my lifetime has a strong African American connotation and has been used heavily to describe poor black neighborhoods is not related to his race.

Your welcome. Your blogs are written well, even if i don't agree with your points.

Joe the Ghetto thing is your interpretation that it is referring to blacks. You know what Ghetto means to me?
Not Black, not White, but poverty. And that’s where I think Obama is taking all of us, in to poverty... Get it now???

And, Joe, I see where you are getting confused on the “African” thing.
You’re under the impression that some calling him African is a sign of racism.
However Joe, it has nothing to do with the color of his skin.
Let me let you in on what they are referring to.

Now I am sure you have heard about the Birther controversy.
I have been a skeptic about this… Until April of this year.
1st: This came out with regards to an official from the Kenyan Parliament, who proclaimed in an open parliament session, this.
“If America was living in a situation where they feared ethnicity and did not see itself as a multiparty state or nation, how could a young man born here in Kenya, who is not even a native American, become the President of America?”
At that moment, coming from an official member of the Kenyon government, stated openly… I began to follow this more closely.

2nd : This dropped in to my lap.
What is to be the official wording of “certification of nomination” in all 50 states (however was only filled in Hawaii):
“This is to certify that at the National Convention of the Democratic Party of the United States of America, held in Denver Colorado on August 25 though 28, 2008 the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively and that the following candidates for President and Vice President of the United States are legally qualified to serve under the provisions of the United States Constitution:”

However this is what the language filed by the DNC in the other 49 states”
“This is to certify that at the National Convention of the Democratic Party of the United States of American, held in Denver, Colorado on August 25 though 28, 2008, the following were duly nominated as candidates of said Party for President and Vice President of the United States respectively:”

And 3rd: Then there was this that has been filed and sworn in to US Court as authentic

So basically Joe, when you see or hear someone refer to Obama as an African, Kenyon… it’s because they believe he was really born in Kenya, Africa. NOT because he is black.
