Need more proof about Tea Party racism?


Tue Aug 24, 2010 at 07:54:30 AM PDT

Of course, the Tea Party leadership will just chalk this up to another individual, but there you go.

Blogger Andrew Ian Dodge posted a guide to DC on August 22nd:

Many parts of DC are safe beyond the areas I will list here, but why chance it if you don't know where you are?

So, how racist is the guide?

According to Adam Serwer of the American Prospect:

I suppose if you exist in a media atmosphere in which black people spend their time developing plans for racial "payback," then believing its really dangerous to enter a mostly black neighborhood is an entirely rational response. But generally speaking, I'd say a white person walking into a rough neighborhood is probably the safest person there. Most likely, someone's going to care if something happens to you.

For the map, check out below the fold.

According to Dodge, Tea Partiers should avoid:

If you are on the subway stay on the Red line between Union Station and Shady Grove, Maryland. If you are on the Blue or Orange line do not go past Eastern Market (Capitol Hill) toward the Potomac Avenue stop and beyond; stay in NW DC and points in Virginia. Do not use the Green line or the Yellow line. These rules are even more important at night. There is of course nothing wrong with many other areas; but you don't know where you are, so you should not explore them.

If on foot or in a cab or bus, stay in Bethesda, Arlington (preferably north Arlington), Crystal City, Falls Church, Annandale, or Alexandria, or in DC only in northwest DC west (i.e. larger street numbers) of 14th or 16th streets, or if on Capitol Hill only in SE Capitol Hill (zip 20003) between 1st and 8th Streets, not farther out than 8th (e.g. 9th, 10th etc). (Or stay on the Mall and at the various monuments.) Again there are many other lovely places, from the Catholic University of America to Silver Spring, Maryland. But you don't know where you are so you cannot go, especially at night, unless you take me with you.

Don't you love, "unless you take me with you"?  Of course, with all the Special Operations folks hanging at the Restoring Honor event, I'm sure there will be an escort available for any who dare to go beyond the boundaries.

Tea Party Map of DC

Map comes via The Atlantic Wire with this description:

DC blogger Laura Olin helpfully provides this map of the city, with the proscribed "safe" area in blue and the "unsafe" in red.

Here are the Safety and Mores according to Dodge :

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. It's rare to meet anyone who gets really offended, but you can still be aware of the issue.

One of the commenters on the site thinks DC is more dangerous than Baghdad:

While I was there I stayed in a cheap hotel and had the window open. I was on the third floor. I called home and while I was on the phone there was a burst of 9MM automatic weapons fire in the street. My wife said it was pretty loud and was that the TV? I told her it wasn't the TV. It was live in the street in Washington, DC, which is more dangerous than Baghdad.

Guess honoring the military won't be much of a big deal for him then.

Dodge does have a defense.  He recommends Indian and Middle Eastern Restaurants along side traditional American food.  Obviously, he doesn't have a problem with skin color.

Along with his restaurant suggestions, our knowledgable blogger shares the addresses of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Bob Bauer, Anita Dunn, and Tom Daschle with the caveat, "Feel free to protest!".

If you happen to be in the DC area this weekend, you might want to join Rev. Al Sharp instead of hanging with Tea Partiers at the Restore Our Honor Rally.  Especially if you might be mistaken for an Eritrean, Ethopian, or Somalian.

(Just in case you missed it, my personal comments are full of snark; the guide, however, is not snark at all.)

UPDATE - in a comment below, a fellow Kossack points out, "in fairness, that blue/red map is not accurate, since they said anything on the Shady Grove side of the Red Line is ok."  I should have explicitly said that the map maker and the guide maker are not the same people.  Perhaps this is the map makers version of what is safe?  Her actual comment is:

Many parts of DC are safe beyond the areas I will list here, but why chance it if you don't know where you are?

I have provided many articles here at Sodahead and in other media showing the direct evidence of the Tea Party racist agenda but here is a compilation of that evidence and you can visit my news blog to see the original articles: http://teapartyexposed.wordpress.com/

First I want it known that I am not accusing or saying that ALL Tea Party activists are racists.

I am providing evidence that proves the Tea Party organization has a racist agenda and has been infiltrated by racists. I believe the majority of members do not consider themselves racist but if they choose to belong to the Tea Party after seeing this evidence then they are supporting racism.

I also believe most tea Party activists have no idea that the Tea Party has a racist agenda and has been infiltrated by racist hate groups which is why I am providing this evidence so they can see the truth and then choose to either change the Tea Party from inside or dissociate themselves with these racists or end their relationship with the Tea Party.

EVIDENCE 1


The main evidence that the Tea Party has a racist agenda comes directly from its association with David Duke. 

Who is David Duke:

David Ernest Duke (born July 1, 1950) is an American white nationalist, former Grand Wizard of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan,former Louisiana State Representative, and a candidate in the Democratic presidential primaries in 1988 and in the general election for President in 1992 as a member of the Republican Party.

Duke describes himself as a racial realist asserting that “all people have a basic human right to preserve their own heritage”. He speaks in favor of voluntary racial segregation and white separatism.

Duke has also unsuccessfully run for the Louisiana State Senate, U.S. Senate, U.S. House of Representatives, Governor of Louisiana, and twice for President of the United States.- wiki

The following is a direct statement from David Dukes website showing his connection and his claim that he has THOUSANDS of Tea Party supporters:

Dr. David Duke, a former member of the House of Representatives in Louisiana who served from 1989-1992, is shortly embarking on an extended, year-long speaking tour across the United States to gauge support for a possible entry in the next race for President of the United States.

He is seriously considering entering the Republican Party primaries for President of the United States.

Duke also was elected as Chairman of the Republican Executive Committee in the largest populated Republican district of Louisiana, St. Tammany Parish from 1996 to 2000.

David Duke is launching a Duke for President exploratory committee, and will soon start a year long tour across America from his home base in Mandeville, LA. He plans to speak in every state and gauge the political response to his possible entry into the race for the Republican nomination.

Thousands of Tea Party Activists and many others have urged him to run for President!

He believes that he has the support of the rank and file Tea Party Movement just as he had support of both the Republican conservative vote and Democratic hard hat vote in Louisiana. Over the past few weeks, since the release of his, “David Duke Speaks to the Tea Party” video, thousands of Tea Party activists have urged him to run for President.-http://www.davidduke.com/general/will-dr-david-duke-run-for-u...

This is David Dukes video of him speaking to the Tea Party activists




Now David Duke is a self confirmed racist, former grand wizard of the kkk and HE says he has THOUSANDS of Tea Party supporters.

Anyone that denies this statement is claiming David Duke is lying. If David Duke is lying then why is he going to so much effort to lie and encourage the Tea Party to support his racist agenda ?

The only realistic reasonable answer is that David Duke either has the support he claims OR he sees the potential for that support from the Tea Party.

If the Tea Party was not overwhelmingly white and had at least a majority of racist minded members why would David Duke be going on a national tour to get their support ?

There is only one conclusion that any intelligent person can arrive at. The majority of Tea Party activists have demonstrated through their actions and statements that they would be open to accepting David Duke and his racist agenda!

EVIDENCE 2

Stormfront is an infamous white supremacist organization with ties to racial violence, hate crimes and plots to harm or kill government officials.

They have been infiltrating and recruiting at Tea parry rallies and on TPP forums since 2009.

The following are direct quotes from the stormfront website:

The TPAC or The Tea Party Americans Coalition is forming local chapters to work together at local events and at the July 4th Tea Parties. We are actively recruiting members from Stormfront and other sites for this purpose and if you are a White Nationalist who wants to work together with other White Nationalists to further the cause then please contact me for details. There is no time like now to start to take back what is rightfully ours and for aryan men and women to unite behind our common cause.

This coalition of WN's, of all ideologies and beliefs, is ready to get active and to start to build up and unify our movement. If you want to do something to save our race and spread our message then this is the place for you. We have a good core of veteran SF members and representatives from several excellent WN orgs such as The Nationalist Coalition and East Coast White Unity amongst others and we are looking for more people like you who are willing to work hard towards our goal of a all white homeland. If you are a serious devoted and dedicated White Nationalist who wants to do more than talk about our problem then WE WANT YOU.

So why not sign on today. It is free and it is just the start of a series of ideas to propell our movement into the mainstream and work toward the final victory. Get involved and lets take back our nation and save our people. Join today!!! 88!!

http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t609426/

The Tea Party Americans Coalition is a work group of serious White Nationalists. It is meant to be a grand project of the entire WN movement to make use of the opportunities that are presented us.

We hope to get not only individuals to work within our coalition, but entire groups, and organizations.

What we are trying to do is build a transitional organization in order to gain mass following, and also to educate the ordinary Patriots who join us.

We see the situation in America today, and the Tea Party movement as an opportunity to gain potentially millions of followers. (even if this does not pan out fully, we will have gained many many new people, and will have built a stepping stone for future success).

This is the best opportunity we had in a 100 years. If you are serious about securing the future of the White race, and ending the crimes and depredations that afflict us everyday, you should join us, and assist us in grabbing this opportunity with both hands.
http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t604393/

The following are articles from a Blog connected to Stormfront and written by well known Stormfront leaders:

Whites Forward

05-09-2009 01:18 PM

 
If we're going to actually build a real independent pro-White political partywe need tobuild a transitional grassroots White mass movement first...such as TPAC. We must effective create the mass demand for a pro-White political alternative and we must gather the forces from which a pro-White party can organically emerge. TPAC can be the genesis of our new White mass movement and the fertile womb for our pro-White political party.

TPAC can be hugely successful with the upcoming July 4th Tea Party events. Let's reach these folks with the TPAC six point agenda, organize the hell out of the Tea Party crowd, and hold regular grassroots TPAC meetings and events thereafter. You know that if we don't take this seriously and bust our build and spread TPAC, these Tea Party event organizers will drop the ball on the momentum, or they will mislead it. Let's seize the reins, develop the mass agenda, and organize thousands of White Americans into local TPAC groups, and unleash the grassroots power and creativity of these TPAC groups to make an effective fightback.

Anyone at these Tea Parties who agrees with us on all of the TPAC six point agenda should be permitted to join, and we should build close relations with those who agree with significant parts of the TPAC agenda. This is not a 'front group', or a typical 'movement' group. Tea Party attendees don't have to agree with the full message of WN to join or work alongside TPAC, and we shouldn't lead them to think otherwise.

We serious racialists will initiate TPAC in the real-world, and we will lead it. We have to prepare this, get other serious racialists involved, make this coordinated intervention work on July 4th, andbuild a real independent grassroots White mass movement from this July 4th intervention onward.

Some of you are members of racialist organizations and/or have your own pro-White media outlets. They have a place within TPAC, amongst the more receptive minority in TPAC. What this means is that White racialist groups like EAU, CofCC, NCoal, EURO, Patriots Alliance, ANP and so on should work inside TPAC or alongside TPAC, while maintaining their own independent existence, holding their own local meetings and activities that include the more perceptive TPAC minority, and distribute more advanced racialist materials amongst the more perceptive TPAC minority.
But, if you and your group don't get involved with TPAC, don't bring us tears because you remain stagnant and irrelevent while other racialists that got on the ball with TPAC are growing in mass influence and experiencing significant recruitment growth.

There will be no public sectarian in-fighting between racialists within TPAC. Play nice or TPAC will give the offending parties the boot. Keep racialist group rivalries and 'movement' gossip about outside of TPAC.
Zero tolerance for counterproductive BS from racialists within TPAC...we'll have enough anti-White opponents as it is, so we don't need false friends that undercut us. Any racialists who act in a counterproductive unbecoming manner will be expelled from TPAC and I highly recommend that all racialist groups break relations with the offending parties, before they screw you over too.

The current imagery ban policy on Stormfront should be made official policy for all TPAC meetings, events and activities. Save all that banned imagery--- which you can't display on SF--- for your own racialist meetings and events, if you so choose. I'm NS, but you will not see me appearing anything like a typical Hollywood stereotype inside TPAC.

People have been saying they want a real relevant pro-White mass movement for a long time. Well, the opportunity to begin is coming on July 4th and it's practically begging us to seize it.
Let's see who really wants a White mass movement, and who's willing to put in the effort necessary to really make it happen. Let's separate the serious wheat from the unserious, lazy chaff. Let's prepare to seize the day on July 4th and begin to build the new White American racial mass alternative. Join Tea Party Americans Coalition, and let's get busy.-http://cynthiagee.blogspot.com/

Google Tea Parties, as many towns with about 20,000 people had small rallies, and not all of these were announced very far away from where they occurred. But the group is also about Starting Tea Parties. Call, rent, speak for a room at the local community center, or a meeting room that can be rented at the local restaurant/lounge or motel/hotel. A meeting room at a good restaurant can be attractive to some groups as it could provide food and fellowship and help break the ice.

Flyers announcing the event can be casually distributed around town. The very fact that these events are not in every town leaves an immense opportunity for us to provide them.

Enlisting the aide of conservative people in the area, basically any non-liberal who owns property and is willing to help, can aide you the individual if this seems too big a project all by your lonesomes. Hey, many of us are new to this and we will make mistakes, so no one think they have to be perfect in this. Remember, as I often post, 85% of anything is just showing up every day. If wehave the willing spirit and are willing to get out in the community and talk to people, we will individually be able to 'pull this off'. The project will have it's own momentum, trust me. It's time is here.

(As a side note: the reason I say try and attract Conservative property owners and not liberals is that Libs seem to be staying with their party's lines and opposing the Tea Parties. Plus, some libs, ifbrought in, could try and seize leadership of your unit for their own agendas. Liberals are not useful idiots and are only going to oppose our agenda further on down the road. Better to not 'ferment the loaf').

Property/home owners are the main victims of the tax increase but it is also increases in other areas of our lives as well. Definitely enlist help and rope, collar, enlist as many people as you can.

Even if you lose control of the leadership of the group, (and I think at some point here eventuallywe need to discuss how to retain leadership or at least 'voice' in the local tea party groups) the very fact that a tea party group is in your local area subverts the plans of the Marxists, establishes a 'beach head' for us in an area and spreads a bona fide causa bella for popular discontent.

We effectively fan fulmination and discontent against the plans of the Marxists. This discontent will, later, spread from taxes to other things Marxist, as the masses/sheeple actually learn to take those Baby Steps that Whites Forward eloquently mentioned. We have to actually help them to see that 'getting mad' is okay. They are mad and angry now, but it is a fragile anger, a fire able to be snuffed out easily by outsiders.-http://cynthiagee.blogspot.com/
-------------------------------------------------------------...
As you can clearly see from these stormfront articles the white supremacists have been infiltrating the Tea Party since 2009 and have even created their own Tea Party affiliate called TPAC Tea Part American Coalition. If you want to believe that they have been unsuccessful you can but the evidence is clear that they are inside the Tea Party and that means the Tea Party is now tied to racists. It also means the White Supremacists see great opportunities to recruit at Tea Party events and in forums.

EVIDENCE 3

The racist signs at Tea Party rallies are well documented and some TP will say these were planted by other parties trying to make the Tea Party look bad. Do these look like plants to you ?

tea party rallies documented tp planted parties tea party plants

This picture is of an Organizer of a Tea Party

tp planted parties tea party plants picture organizer tea partytp planted parties tea party plants picture organizer tea party

These are average Tea Party activists that you can find attending any Tea Party rally.

While some people may be able to excuse this as just a few radicals and not representative of the Tea Party majority there is NO denying that the Tea Party has racists members and when you consider all the other evidence it is clear to see that these are active members that represent at least a portion of the Tea Party.

EVIDENCE 4

The Te Party has come out in direct support of candidates and two of them are RON and Rand Paul.

Ron Paul claims to be a Libertarian but his ties to white supremacists and stormfront are well documented. Ron Paul has accepted donations from Stormfront and KKK meber Don Black.

"WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul has received a $500 campaign donation from a white supremacist, and the Texas congressman doesn't plan to return it, an aide said Wednesday.

 Don Black, of West Palm Beach, recently made the donation, according to campaign filings. He runs a Web site called Stormfront with the motto, "White Pride World Wide." The site welcomes postings to the "Stormfront White Nationalist Community."-http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22331091/

welcomes postings stormfront white nationalist community -httpwww msnbc msn comid22331091

 

Rand Paul recently won his primary with the huge support of the Tea Party. Here is Rand at a Stormfront sponsored event called Knobcreek shoot out asking for support and donations:


 

uACcUvwK1A0

Here are the Stormfront entries calling for its members to donate to Rand Paul's election campaign:

http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t624677/

Since primary election campaign funds are not released it is impossible to determine how much if any money Paul received from Stormfront but there is no denying he was courting stormfront and they were willing to donate.

EVIDENCE 5


While the Arizona immigration reform may not appear to be a racist agenda the Tea party has supported it and the AZ bill was written by a Tea Part member who also has direct ties to Stormfront and white supremacists:

“Arizona State Senator Russell Pearce, who submitted the bill has, for many years, been associated with local Neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups.

In 2006, he came out speaking enthusiastically about the 1950’s deportation act “Operation Wetback” and for sending email to his supporters reminiscing the greatness of this program. In this email he included an attachment from a white supremacy group and made the conspiratorial claim that journalists pushed the view of: “a world in which every voice proclaims the equality of the races, the inerrant nature of the Jewish ‘Holocaust’ tale, the wickedness of attempting to halt the flood of non-White aliens pouring across our borders…”-http://news.jornal.us/article-5005.NeoNaziAZ-GOP-co...

In 2007, Pierce was photographed with J.T. Ready spokesman for the National Socialist Movement, better known as the Nazi Party. They refer to themselves, “the premier white civil right organization in the world.” The group claims to be true patriots claiming that they are only against non-white immigration. J.T. Ready has said that closing the borders is crucial to preserving the white race. “Let’s face it,” he said. “We’re not being invaded by Swedish nuns here. We’re on a border with a country that is a hostile country.” Pierce is also known for speaking at Neo-Nazi rallies and conferences.”

In 2008, Pierce sponsored Senate Bill 1108, which would make it impossible for students at Universities to join groups based in whole or part because of their ethnicity, claiming it would indoctrinate people with anti-American mentality. As if the relationship could not be any clearer, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer yesterday signed a bill targeting a school district’s ethnic studies program, Arizona law now prohibits classes that promote ethnic solidarity, that are created primarily for students of a particular race or that promote resentment toward a certain ethnic group.”

-------------------------------------------------------------...

SUMMARY

The evidence is now here for anyone that wants to check the sources and links.

While no Tea Party member may admit that they are racist the evidence that the Tea party has been infiltrated by racists is overwhelming. Some Tea Party members may not be supporting David Duke but the evidence shows he has thousands of Tea Party supporters.

Not all Tea Party activists are racists but the pictures of activists at rallies with racist signs proves that some if and probably many members are.

The Tea party has supported candidates Ron and Rand Paul that have direct ties to white supremacists as the evidence proves.

The Tea Party has a member that wrote the Arizona immigration bill and has direct ties to white supremacists as the evidence proves.

While some may say this is circumstantial evidence it should be known that all US courts will convict on overwhelming circumstantial evidence and in this case the evidence that the Tea Party is infiltrated by racists and promoting a racist agenda is overwhelming.

Case closed!

I'll be honest, I did not read all of the articles or all these comments. I just want to state that YES in every group there are racists.

Are there racsits in the Tea party? I'm sure. Does that the entire group is bad? No.

 

Guess what...there are LOTS of racists in The Rainbow Coalition to. Does that make the entire group bad? Nope.
