Tea Party Goes Racist

In a tea party-led protest of the health care bill outside the US Capitol yesterday, protesters started chanting the N-word at John Lewis, a black congressman from Georgia and a giant of the civil rights movement. I understand (although don’t agree with) fighting against the health care bill, but yelling racial epithets at anyone, let alone 70-year old men, is another clue that, as I’ve discussed before, parts of the tea party are crazy.

  1. Absolutely ridiculous. And it discredits those who might actually have reasonable points to make.

    It is evidence of a lingering illness that we haven’t cured yet. John Lewis has been around long enough to have experienced racism in some of the most ugly manifestations too. How very sad.
