If you’re gonna call Tea Party activists RAAAACISTS…
…you better come prepared with ammunition.
Tonight on Hannity, Juan Williams tried to deflect attention from the endemic violence and anarchy of the Occupy movement by talking about the “racism in some parts of the Tea Party” and “jokes about monkeys and the president.”
I asked him to name names.
His response? 1) You find it for me and 2) I don’t have any evidence.
Williams then deflected again by talking about Tea Party activists who were “rude” to members of Congress…as if this was in any way comparable to the window-smashing, arson, rape, property destruction, railroad sabotage, thematic calls for violent revolution, murder, overthrow and anarchy, Molotov cocktail-throwing, and bridge bomb-plotting perpetrated by Occupy members and leaders from coast to coast.
Desperate to help Williams out after he failed to bring the goods, a few liberal Twitter users scrounged up this (from an elderly Orange County Republican Party official who is only described as a “Tea Party leader” by the left-wing alternative publication that broke the story) and this (from a loser Ron Paul nut who called himself a “Tea Party candidate” but had zero constituency).
Hard-working, rule of law-respecting, tax-paying, job-generating Tea Party activists are sick and tired of the smears and false equivalency between their movement and the organized, poo-flinging pawns of Occupy Wall Street.
But we knew long ago it was the only card they had to play…
