They continue to be who we thought they were

From Coates:

Here is former head and current spokesperson for the Tea Party Express Mark Williams satirically responding to the NAACP:

Dear Mr. Lincoln

We Coloreds 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 coloreds. That means we Coloreds 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 coloreds 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.

Despite the satirical nature of the response, I still found it startling and disgusting.

L, why are you surprised?

It's obvious that their distain for Obama is personal and his race is a component of their virulent opposition.

If they were against unconstitutional policies where the heck were they when Congress passed the Patriot Act and Bush signed it?

Where were they when it was revealed that Bush was using the NSA to data mine all of America's communications without consent from Congress?

Why weren't these fools out in the streets protesting when Bush passed TARP I?

Then they want to whine about Obama spending us into oblivion while they sat on their hands when Bush started two wars based upon false pretenses and paid for it on the Chinese credit card.

Nor will they mention the fact that Social Security and Medicare liabilities dwarf any spending that Obama has done to save the economy.

The only thing I can thing of that drives such irrational hatred is racism.

As Rikyrah stated: They are who we always thought they were.

There WERE lots of people protesting government spending, etc under Bush. The TEA party started long before Obama. But the truth doesn't matter to Progressives; it interferes with the narrative and the continuation of the class war.
