Tea Party Leader Pens Racist Rant on NAACP Lazy Welfare ‘Coloreds’
July 15, 2010
(ChattahBox)—Tea party leaders called out by the NAACP to clean house and repudiate the racists and bigots within their ranks, have responded with a puzzling tactic. Deny tea party racism exists, despite documented evidence to the contrary, hurl counter charges of racism at the oldest civil rights organization in the country and double down on racist and bigoted behavior for good measure. Meet Mark Williams, former chairman and current spokesman of The Tea Party Express, a nationally recognized and corporate-backed tea party group that invited Sarah Palin to speak at one of its rallies. Williams is known for his incendiary and bigoted verbal grenades, such as attacking President Obama, as “an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug and a racist in chief.”
The NAACP’s resolution condemning the bigoted elements within the tea party, has caused Williams to become unhinged. In the past 48-hours, Williams has gone on the attack, by denouncing the NAACP, as “professional race-baiters” who “make more money off of race than any slave trader ever.” And during a testy appearance on CNN last night, Williams, said “Racists have their own movement. It’s called the NAACP.” And the “I’m not a racist” tea party leader was just getting started. He penned an insane bigoted rant in the form of a letter from the “colored” NAACP head Ben Jealous to Abe Lincoln, asking for a return to slavery, so the government as “massa” can continue to dole out welfare to lazy “coloreds.” What a great way to show the world that teapartiers are not racists!
Williams believes that since the NAACP has the word “colored” in its name that means the organization is racist. His racist screed portrays “coloreds” as lazy bums whom don’t want to work for a living. The coloreds prefer to take money from the whites to put a “wide screen TV in every room,” writes Williams.
In response to commenters criticizing his “coloreds” post, Williams responded:
“I am mocking those people who call themselves “Colored People” and who are now fighting to be kept as government owned pets, whilst hurling charges of racism at those who embrace freedom and civil rights.”
And in another comment Williams, wrote: ‘“massa” owned slaves. The group that calls itself “Colored People” want government to be the new massa.”
“NAACP Resolution: Colored People change minds about emancipation
In every one of the dozens of interviews that I have done regarding the anti-Tea Party resolution passed by the NAACP I have brought up the absurdity of a group that calls blacks “Colored People” hurling charges of racism. Whats more, each interviewer has defended that phrase and expressed surprise that I would consider that phrase to be racist!
Apparently Colored People are an entirely new race of people and one to which the title applies. Here NAACP President Precious Ben Jealous explains to President Abraham Lincoln the reasons for the resolution in this newly discovered letter :
Dear Mr. Lincoln
We Colored People have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!
In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the ‘tea party movement’.
The tea party position to “end the bailouts” for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn’t that what we want all Coloreds to strive for? What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.
And the ridiculous idea of “reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government.” What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!
The racist tea parties also demand that the government “stop the out of control spending.” Again, they directly target Colored People. That means we Colored People would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.
Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government “stop raising our taxes.” That is outrageous! How will we Colored People ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?
Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.
