Tea Partier's Warning-Filled Guide to D.C.

On scary African people: "DC's population includes refugees from every country, as the families of embassy staffs of third world countries tend to stay in DC whenever a revolution in their homeland means that anyone in their family would be in danger if they went back. Most taxi drivers and many waiters/waitresses (especially in local coffee shops like the Bread and Chocolate chain) are immigrants, frequently from east Africa or Arab countries. As a rule, African immigrants do not like for you to assume they are African Americans and especially do not like for you to guess they are from a neighboring country (e.g. Eritrea, Ethiopia, Somalia) with whom they may have political or military tensions."

    I guess this Tea Party site DID print the guide and it looks authentic. Sorry. If you know how to copy and paste this link, it will show you what they say about DC. It has a few warnings.....

  • I followed the link to their source, it doesn't even appear to be a legitimate tea party website. It looks like an instigator.

  • Lord, I hope they would know to at least call it a Field Guide and not a filled guide. I don't think this is legit. I will be in D. C. on 8/28 for the rally. I was there on 9/11/09, and I will be there 9/11/10. Everyone I saw took the metro. There was too many people to even try to take taxis. We also took coolers with sandwiches instead of going to restaurants. (At least most of us did.)

    a blog is different than an official organization. He's either a person who is intentionally trying to discredit the tea party movement, or he is a rare exception.

  • OP ... then he is a rare exception. I receive updates from our tea party and nothing of this nature was sent out like this.

  • LOL! Did the OP think this was a serious piece?

  • It is a joke and you are doing nothing but spreading propaganda.
