Well, it looks like some of the Tea Party Movement have decided to take up the NAACP and their spurious accusations of “racism” imbuing pretty much every aspect of the Movement. They’re going to hold a “Uni-Tea” rally in front of Philadelphia’s Independence Hall on July 31. And in a break from the usual agenda (lower taxes, smaller government, less corruption), they’re going to discuss racial matters.
I’m not so certain this is a good idea. The main point of the Tea Party Movement has been apart from racial matters; only those who see anything non-liberal as “racist” (which, sadly, is a large chunk of the left these days) have seen a real racist agenda behind the Movement. To go along and react as if the Tea Party Movement has a racial component is playing along with Alinsky’s Rules 2 and 3: “Never go outside the expertise of your people” and “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy.” By changing the agenda to racial matters, the Tea Party is playing into the hands of their critics and allowing them to set the agenda — and it’s their agenda, where they’re the experts.
On the other hand, it does give the NAACP a chance to repair some of the damage they’ve inflicted upon themselves with their ill-advised attempt to pick a fight with the Tea Party at the behest of their Democratic masters, and that could be a good thing.
Further, it would bring the Tea Party right into the back yard of the New Black Panther Party, with all the potential entertainment value that could entail. How could the NBBP possibly let this opportunity to confront the “crackers” head-on, on their home turf?
Once again, I wanna see this guy show up in Philadelphia. An armed black man attending a Tea Party? It makes liberals’ head explode, in the most amazing colors…
