The left calls the tea party racists because it mostly consists of white people. What kind of an argument is that? That itself is a racist argument. We need a good definition for racism which I provided here. Judging the people in the tea parties by their race to determine if they are racist or not is self-defeating, it is racist itself.
Besides the left commits the correlation-causation fallacy. The tea parties mostly consist of white people, therefore there is a corellation between white people and being a tea party member. Now does this imply that there is racism? No. Of course not. That is a ridiculous argument to make. I can make a similar argument with regard to black people. I can say that the real reason why more black people do not join the tea party movements is because the president is black and they do not want to oppose him. That is another correlation-causation fallacy, see how ridiculous it is?
If you want to call the tea party racists then you need to provide evidence of their racism not simply correlate between the white members in the tea parties. I am sure you can kind find racists in the tea parties, but that is in the minority, most people in the tea parties do not show themselves to be racists. If you cannot provide evidence here that all what the tea party is about is being opposed to the president since he is black then you have a ridiculous argument not worthy or any respect.
I want to again bring to attention the strategy of the liberal left. I have written about this before on my other posts. Racism is a tool used by the left to silence opposition. Whenever someone is opposed to some law or their party they will try to find a way to claim him to be a racist. The left does not like the tea parties so now they invent excuses to why they must be a racist party. The fact that most of them are white is a good place to start for the left. And this is precisely why I never listen to the news. I cannot listen to the news. Every single day you can know with certainty that one issue regarding racism will be discussed. Even if there is no sign of racism these people are masters of inventing it and then discussing it to silence their opponents. The left wants to create an imagine of themselves that they are the progressive enlightened party and any opposition to their party must come from greedy racists who only think about themselves. Which is precisely why I have no respect for the liberal party for the tactics that they use.
