AP Notices Black TEA Partiers Called Racist Names, But, It’s Not Racism, Cause They’re Conservatives

Finally, the MSM is waking up to the fact that not all TEA Partiers are whites and right wing extremists. In fact, there are actually Black TEA Partiers

They’ve been called Oreos, traitors and Uncle Toms, and are used to having to defend their values. Now black conservatives are really taking heat for their involvement in the mostly white tea party movement–and for having the audacity to oppose the policies of the nation’s first black president.

“I’ve been told I hate myself. I’ve been called an Uncle Tom. I’ve been told I’m a spook at the door,” said Timothy F. Johnson, chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, a group of black conservatives who support free market principles and limited government.

Searching, searching, searching…..nope, cannot find anywhere in this article where the AP, or any liberal, decries this real racism. Sorry, my bad, I forgot that only those on the Right can be racists.

Just imagine had liberals claimed they were called bad names, and there was no proof of it. The MSM wouldn’t run wild with that, would they?

Racist protest signs at some tea party rallies and recent reports by U.S. Reps. John Lewis, D-Ga., and Barney Frank, D-Mass., that tea partyers shouted racial and anti-gay slurs at them have raised allegations of racism in the tea party movement.

Black members of the movement say it is not inherently racist, and some question the reported slurs. “You would think–something that offensive–you would think someone got video of it,” Bazar, the conservative blogger, said.

“Just because you have one nut case, it doesn’t automatically equate that you’ve got an organization that espouses (racism) as a sane belief,” Johnson said.

The AP just can’t help themselves in taking little shots to try and paint the TEA Party as inherently racist. Still waiting for them to come out against the way Black Conservatives are treated.
