The Tea Party Has Always Been Against Racism

As many of you know, the NAACP recently passed a resolution criticizing the Tea Party for tolerating racism in its movement. Top Tea Party leaders insist the charge is bogus. They are loud and vociferous in condemning racist organizations in America. Look at how they reacted to one of the most notorious racist organizations in America, the, um, NAACP:
[MARK] WILLIAMS: You’re dealing with people who are professional race baiters, who make a very good living off this kind of thing. They make more money off of race than any slave trader ever. It’s time groups like the NAACP went to the trash heap of history where they belong with all the other vile racist groups that emerged in our history.

Would a racist organization have said something like that? I don't think so! They don't pull any punches when it comes to opposing racism.

Mr. Williams, who is perhaps best known for saying Muslims worship a "monkey god" (then apologizing to Hindus for the slight), also declared that he was "disinclined to take lectures on racial sensitivity from a group that insists on calling black people, 'Colored,'" once again showing the deep, sophisticated grasp of racism and prejudice possessed by the American right.
