Tea Party Express Leader Mark Williams Booted For Racist ‘Satire’

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.

Sincerely

Precious Ben Jealous, Tom’s Nephew NAACP Head Colored Person

Ben Jealous is the real President of the NAACP.

The Tea Party’s Reaction:

“We, in the last 24 hours, have expelled Tea Party Express and Mark Williams from the National Tea Party Federation because of the letter that he wrote,” Webb said of the blog post by Williams that satirized a fictional letter from what he called “Colored People” to President Abraham Lincoln. ”

Bravo.

Mark Williams reaction went a little something like this. “Uhh. We have no leader and if something goes wrong, it’s because the Democrats are just trying to make us look bad!”

This is what he really said, “I am mocking those people who call themselves “Colored People” and who are now fighting to be kept as government owned pets, whilst hurling charges of racism at those who embrace freedom and civil rights.”

I won’t go as far as applying the racially charged satirical failure of a rant to the whole of the Tea Party. It would be entirely unfair and incorrect to do so. What we have here is an underlying issue of stereotypical race baiting. As such, the message, whatever its intent, is inconsistent, incoherent and completely out of line with reality or social appropriatness. The movement has become a channel for its “leaders”, members, and sympathizers to harbor ill will toward the government without having to project a sensible counter approach on how to fix the ills they’ve taken issue with. It’s more like a mindset; an angry collective and the whirling skirmishes being whipped up are bringing about greater resentment and discontent all around. How long can one remain committed to a cause that is both single and group minded, yet wholly unfocused with no actual direction, no leadership and no idea how politics works in a country they love? All I’m left with is the sentiment that a leader of any group is indicative of the nature and aspirations of that group. Is the Tea Party any different?

We shall see.

    I want to take this opportunity to thank the Tea Party for electing Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown since he voted for the Financial Reform Bill and help the President of the United States with another legislative victory, thank you Tea Party. Have you heard of “Unintended Consequences” or “Blowback”? Was he working for the Tea Party, himself or our Country, hmmm only you can answer this one?

    The problem is this. Tea Party candidates will win a number of these congressional races because local districts are often safely partisan in nature. They can make their wild, unfounded claims, crazy accusations, etc., and win. That means not only are we likely to see an increase in Republican seats in both houses, we’re likely to see more antics, more insanity, more stupidity. At the same time they’re going to do everything they can to derail Obama’s policies which will likely mean high unemployment, a moribund economy, and more compromises on policy positions that make no one happy.

    That could literally mean that if the Republicans put up a legitimate candidate in 2012, they could win. Such a result is bad enough, but the likely response for the Democrats is to move further to the “middle” to placate voters. As we’ve seen over the last decade, the “middle” in American politics is basically on the verge of being an 80s Republican. Increasingly that means we’ll have a political landscape of a conservative party and ratfuck insane parties. The former, given it’s track record, slowly moving to the right, the latter, given it’s track record, loudly screaming “socialism, communism, fascism!!!”

    If we continue on this course, privatization will be socialism.

    Thanks for stopping by, Dogmeat.

    I’m quite happy with Scott Brown.

    He voted for the fake financial reform bill, which is fine. While there’s no financial reform in it, it’s generally harmless. So Scotty gets to look like a bipartisan compromiser to his leftist Massachusetts electorate by voting for a meaningless bill.

    As for “helping the President,” go ask your friends and neighbors, “Hey, what do think about that awesome financial reform? What a win, huh?” As if a complete farce of a bill written by the corrupt Dodd and Frank is going to swing any moderates or turn out any base.

    Go Scotty B!!!

    As for the overall Tea Party, sure there are some nuts. But mainstream Republicans (Boehner et. al.) are the ones who drove this country into a ditch along with Bush and the Democrats. We need reform so desperately that I’ll take a few kooks along with the wave of reformers.
