Liberals and Obamatrons, led by MSNBC’s attack dog Chris Matthews, like to claim people who support the Tea Party are racist. But if the Tea Party was indeed racist why would any self respecting black person join it? Do black people join the Ku Klux Klan and throwback white supremacists?
In fact, as the video above demonstrates, the Tea Party movement is open to all Americans regardless of race. On April 15, Kelly O’Donnell of NBC tried to get a black man at the D.C. Tea Party Tax Day protest to admit he was uncomfortable surrounded by mostly white people.
“These are my people,” the man responded. “They’re Americans.”
NBC and Ms. O’Donnell played the race card and it failed. Kelly O’Donnell and NBC are cognizant of race. But the man in the video is not. The Tea Party does not care about race.
Keep selling your divide and conquer snake oil, Chris Matthews. It really does not matter and it certainly does not work.
From first quarter of 2009 to the first quarter of 2010, Matthews Hardball drew a scant 96,000 viewers. AM talk radio shows in medium-sized cities draw more listeners on an average day.
In fact, MSNBC’s news shows have consistently lost viewership over the last year, which is a good thing because it means that a very small number of people are actually buying into Matthews’ divisive race-baiting.
