Tea Parties: 'Calling All Racists!' - Creators Syndicate – Did you know that only racists turned out for the recent nationwide "tea parties"?! "Let's be very honest about what this is about," actress/comedian Janeane Garofalo said on Keith Olbermann's MSNBC show. "It's not about bashing Democrats. It's not about taxes. They have no idea what the Boston Tea Party was about. They don't know their history at all. This is about hating a black man in the White House. This is racism straight up. That is nothing but a bunch of tea-bagging rednecks." Oh.

"Of course you have to pay more in taxes, Americans have not been paying enough taxes to support their world domination game for decades. Can't be a superpower on credit you know."

---Hey, our $20,000 (roughly) fed. tax bill for 2008 was more than enough - it's not the amount that is paid, it's the piss-poor wasteful decision-making at all levels of government that's part of the problem...

Anyways back to the article - the guy's making a valid point. The so-called tea party protests weren't about race, they were about protesting taxes going up, and protesting what the taxes were going to get spent on.

I can't help but wonder - why didn't all these protesting people get off their ass in 2001 and 2003 and try to prevent two wars?! That's been the ultimate money-pit (not to mention immoral as hell) that's bled us dry.

"And as far as those who were at those "parties" she is right about that you know. Most of those there are totally ignorant of history."

Meaning? What were the demographics/stats on those attending? I was unaware any were published.
