“We’ve got some unfinished business on the agenda, with one branch of the Tea Party being nothing but a 2.0 upgrade of a lynch party,” Wright said.
That statement is harsh as it is bold, and although no one likes the truth most of the time, this is one bad-tasting lie.
“We’ve got some unfinished business on the agenda, with some folks doing everything they can to get that Black man out of their White House,” Wright said.
Proclaiming President Obama’s race as the main reason, or any reason for that matter, for the distaste the Tea Party has towards his leadership is not only far-fetched, it is unfair. Whether or not Obama was black, white, or any other race, it would not change the Tea Party’s disagreement with how he handles affairs in his position at The White House.
Moreover, it is not Obama’s physical attributes the Tea Party critiques; it is his policies and leadership. Evan Quietsch, who was involved with the Tea Party during its early beginnings in Delaware, made it clear his party’s motives were far from the aforementioned in the statement he made after hearing Wright’s allegation.
“I have been involved with the Tea Party since its inception here in Delaware, and I have never once heard or seen anything at a Tea Party rally, 9-12 meeting or Patriot group event that was racist or ever even suggested that the president’s race has anything to do with the concerns raised,” Quietsch said.
President Obama used to be a part of Trinity United Church of Christ’s congregation, and Rev. Wright also married him to First Lady Michelle Obama. Although it is no mystery that Wright is a supporter of Obama, the less obvious fact here is the president left Trinity United Church of Christ after Wright blamed the government for using the HIV virus against minorities.
If that does not say something about Rev. Wright, I am not sure what does. The Tea Party and Obama may not agree on policies and leadership tactics, but certainly neither of them aspires to use the race card as a legitimate form of argument, and let us keep it that way.
Although we cannot and should not keep loudmouths, like Wright, out of politics, we can certainly take what they have to say with a grain of salt.
