My 16 year old son is interested in current events, but he often asks me for my analysis of what is happening.
Today, he mentioned that he read that some on the left attribute the “Tea Parties” to racism. That is, the “right wingers” are prejudiced, and are protesting just because President Obama is black (actually, he’s bi-racial).
If some people truly believe this, they are ignoring what the mainstream media has, for the most part, avoided reporting. That is, the Tea Parties yesterday were not based on displeasure over the color of the President’s skin, nor were they only made up of “right wingers”.
The fact is, the demonstrations were attended by working class people who are fed up with the spend-and-then-tax politicians who are pissing away our future, as well as that of at least the next 2 upcoming generations. Yes, there are more and more in this country who are finally starting to pay attention; I just hope it’s not too late.
Sure, many of those attending may be classified as conservative, but there were a great many protestors that were previously Obama supporters and voters, and now that they’ve seen his true agenda, they realize their mistake.
So the left-wing media can carry on with their “tea bag” jokes, and their condescension and disgust towards those protesting. But when next year’s general election is finished, I sure hope they don’t have the gall to say they are surprised at the results…
