For years I’ve been mystified by the charge on the left and their media allies that the TEA Party is racist. What the hell is racist about wanting lower taxes, small government and adherence to the Constitution? I figured it was just leftists employing Alinsky’s Rule #12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it” in order to marginalize and demonize those who do not march lockstep with their ideology.
These comments by Karen Lewis’s campaign treasurer caused the scales to fall from my eyes:
“When you talk about making government smaller, that is code…for eliminating black people from jobs…When we look at the overall scope of how the economic base within black communities have survived, it’s been public sector workers, public sector jobs that have made the middle class, and frankly upper middle class jobs possible for black families…This move to eliminate this entire class of people is not just an issue for the people who are impacted, but also for the world around us.”
Obviously I don’t agree with this twaddle, but good lord, how did an entire race of people within the United States become wards of the state and how can the GOP possibly turn that around?
