The opening speaker at the first National Tea Party Convention called President Obama a "committed Socialist ideologue" who was elected because "we do not have a civics, literacy test before people can vote."
"You have launched the counter-revolution," the speaker, former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Colo.), told 600 or so delegates of the grassroots movement assembled at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville Wednesday night. "It is our nation.
Tancredo also insisted on using Obama's middle name, Hussein, and said he was thankful Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona lost the 2008 presidential election because Obama has mobilized an uprising.
"People who could not even spell the word 'vote' or say it in English put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House," he said.
To make it simple, he wants THE LITERACY TEST BACK AT THE POLLS.
This ' test' was done to totally DISENFRANCHISE Black folks, because BLACK FOLK were the ONLY ONES given the Literacy Test during Jim Crow.
You can put this under the THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE news.
Nobody has come out from the GOP to condemn Tancredo...
Michael Steele, are you a mute on his comments?
