Or at least that is what the lefties would have us believe.
As a member of the local Tea Party movement in the Phoenix east valley region, I can tell you first hand that it is not. Not only is the tea party movement not racist in any way, but race isn't even a topic that the tea party touches on, even tangentially.
The people accusing us of racism are completely disconnected from reality.
It is one thing to have philosophical differences with a group of people. It is quite another to dishonestly paint them as villains, and especially in such a childish and transparent way. Who would actually believe the things that they say about us? The more time goes by and the more outlandish their accusations become, the less convinced I am that anyone believes them.
Racism???? Really? Is that the best they can do? Can’t they at least come up with a canard that isn’t also a cliche? Please, if you’re going to tell hateful lies about me, at least make them interesting.
Why do they do this? Why can’t they debate us on the issues?
Because they would lose. Leftist ideology just doesn’t stand up to the harsh light of truth, logic, and reason. The leftists have long known this, hence the emergence of post-modernist “thought” with its denial of objective reality itself, as best revealed by the Sokal Hoax.
These people are wrong and they know it. But just like any other cultie they are unable to actually turn away from the lies they have swallowed and find the truth. For them the only thing that can be done is to start hurling irrational insults and hope that enough people are distracted by them to lose track of the real issues. But the very fact that they are doing this shows just how desperate and fearful they really are. They’re not even trying to confuse the public with sophistry, they’re going straight to the ad hominem attacks, way down there at the bottom of the barrel.
Keep it up comrades, you’re winning our battles for us.
