Tea Party

No joke. There is currently one in the works right now as you are reading this. It's going to be called Black Tea, but I think it should be called The Descendants of Stephen.

So in case you missed it, there was something of a media storm yesterday, almost exclusively among conservatives, due to Chris Matthews' MSNBC show Hardball, when he did a segment about the Tea Party and its relationship, or really lack of one, with black folks.

Of course, it's hard to form any friendly relationship between black people and a group that is basically a KKK rally when everyone's hoods are at the cleaners; But a guests on the segment, filmmaker Kevin Dotson, was on because he is currently making that documentary about black people who are Tea Partiers. Both of them...

Try as I might, I couldn't find any more info about the doc, except that it's being produced by Katy Jordan for MediaBoss Television, which is based in Framingham, MA.

Hopefully Mr Dotson will get in touch with us and tell us more about his film and when it's scheduled to come out, because I'm sure your'e as curious about it as I am.

In the meantime here's that Hardball segment I referred to:

    Black leftists are against Obama too! I don't agree with his warmongering, Africa policy, and his total caving in to Wall Street. It's a shame the focus on blacks against Obama is only of cartoonish TP members. There's more to it than that.

    yall know that racism is ok long as its aginst white ppl. get overr it!

  • T-Bag McQueen | March 22, 2013 7:02 PMReply

    Pssh. Yeah right. We want to take away benefits for minorities because WE HATE THEM AND WANT TO KEEP THERM DOWN. The founding fathers owned slaves. We're just trying to follow in their footsteps ;D

  • t-bag mcqueen | March 22, 2013 7:11 PM

    Whatever. I've got some races to oppress. Later days!

  • The Real T-Bag McQueen | March 22, 2013 7:09 PM

    You're starting to get really offensive. You're giving a bad name to t-baggers everywhere. Cut it out!

  • T-Bag Mcqueen | March 22, 2013 7:07 PM

    Haha! Yeah. Adoption. I just need someone to do the yard work.

  • The Real T-bag mcqueen | March 22, 2013 7:04 PM

    Come on! If that were really the Tea Party's motivation do you think we would be so undiplomatic about it? I'm the real T-Bag McQueen. I love black people I'm going to adopt a black child just to prove it! You'll be sorry when I post our happy family photos.

  • T-bag McQueen | March 22, 2013 6:50 PMReply

    As a current Tea Party member in good standing I can confirm that yes we do indeed believe that whites are the superior race and all others should be subjugated to us. For all time. Amen.

  • The Real T-Bag McQueen | March 22, 2013 6:59 PM

    No way! I'm real! He's a liberal impostor trying to sabotage our cause! The Tea Party basically just believes in constitutional government. The fact that our stand involves reducing the welfare state is often unfairly misconstrued as racist because of the impoverished minorities that depend on welfare. We're just trying to do right by the founding fathers.

  • T-Bag McQueen | March 22, 2013 6:56 PM

    That other guy pretending to be me is probably a Republican who is afraid that the Tea Party is going to make them look bad. But seriously, you guys. I meant what I said.

  • The real t-bag McQueen | March 22, 2013 6:54 PM

    NOOOO! Don believe that guy! I'm the real T-Bag McQueen and I'm not a racist at all. I enjoy hip hop and I have a cousin who married a black man. We hang out! That guy does not represent the Tea Party!! Please believe me.

  • The real t-bag McQueen | March 22, 2013 6:53 PM

    NOOOO! Don believe that guy! I'm the real T-Bag McQueen and I'm not a racist at all. I enjoy hip hop and I have a cousin who married a black man. We hang out! That guy does not represent the Tea Party!! Please believe me.

    era of using Blacks as window dressing for both major parties is over

    the new minority to court/exploit is the Latino American


    the Catholic Church sees that also....so you have a(white Italian) pope with ties to Argentina.


    this doc. is about 2 years too late.

  • J | March 22, 2013 8:20 AMReply

    Another propaganda film piece to be used to evoke rejection (black democrats, liberals) or enslave (black republicans, conservatives). Used by both political parties to keep black people stuck on the fact neither party cares about them, and that these parties agendas at the end doesn't benefit us, the parties just benefit keeping us separated and stupid. That goes for all races truly. Just my opinion, which I know everyone has one.

  • OMAR | March 22, 2013 8:21 PM

    @BLUTOPAZ

    1) I apologize for my assumption that you were a man. That was baseless and inappropriate.

    2) I apologize for my inaccurate inferences about your statements. I am not a Tea Party member and I did some research on things that have been said by some of their members. As a whole, I gave them too much credit.

    3) I hold my government representatives responsible for their unprincipled spending, regardless of their political affiliation.

    4) I do preach tolerance and understanding to people I interact with who have incorrect ideas about our president. I believe that he is a very accomplished man, deserving of our respect.

    Again, I'm sorry for the things I said that offended you. I was careless and emotional with my words. I found your response to be well thought out and edifying, and for that I thank you.

  • BluTopaz | March 22, 2013 7:59 PM

    @ Omar

    1) Did I say that "anyone who doesn't agree with Obama is a racist?" I specifically mentioned all the names he has been called by these "free gatherings of white people", everything BUT nigger (at least in public). False equivalency fail on your part. Try again.

    2) It's very suspicious that there have been so many cries of "government spending" since January 2009; almost like you all have amnesia.

    3) I'm not a man.

    4) Are you preaching tolerance and understanding to the birthers, who find a muslim nazi easier to believe than an Ivy league educated Black man? That's when they are not demanding to see the man's academic transcripts, or claiming he only got into Harvard because of affirmative action.

    GTFOOH with your noise.

  • Omar | March 22, 2013 6:47 PM

    @BLUTOPAZ - so anyone who doesn't agree with Obama is a racist? And any free gathering of white people is a klan meeting? How about a little tolerance and understanding, my man. I don't think Obama is trying to destroy America. I think he's going about it the wrong way and spending the country into the ground. I wouldn't give two shits if we had a mixed race transgender individual in the white house as long as they understood principles of good government.

  • BluTopaz | March 22, 2013 5:16 PM

    The ONLY difference between t-bags and the kkk; the former are too chickenshit to admit they hate everyone.

    This is the new racism, to pretend you hate President Obama because he's a socialist nazi kenyan muslim plotting to destroy God's country. And any grinning lawn jockey (like that one in the photo above) needs to have their eyes stretched open, Clockwork Orange style, and forced to look at lynching post cards.

  • Marie | March 22, 2013 10:43 AM

    J, I understand your criticism of both parties. But I think there's a clear difference between the two when it comes to black people. The Republican party doesn't like us, has no respect for us and wants to have nothing to do with us. That is not the same as the Democratic party which at it worst is indifferent. With a few exceptions, it was the Republican party that worked tirelessly to prevent black people (and young people) from voting in this last election. What I see is one party hating us and the other not. The same can be said for the parties's attitudes toward gays and Latino immigrants, too. For me, that's an important distinction.

  • C. Fox | March 22, 2013 2:44 AMReply

    KKK? That's a pretty fucked up, ignorant thing to say. Get your head out of your ass, bro.

  • CC | March 22, 2013 11:47 PM

    @C. Fox - Yeah man, we cool. I was just trying to make a case that Sergio's comparison i.e., KKK/Tea Party was valid from many standpoints. But I do understand that my transitional phrasing can be ( at times) a bit wacked. So I differently understand the confusion.

    To add to my problem, I'm watching the NCAA's. My teams are taking a beating so my brain is on strain.

  • C. Fox | March 22, 2013 11:28 PM

    @CC - You got me bro. My bad. I like your style and I think your okay.

  • CC | March 22, 2013 8:28 PM

    @ FOX - Dude, so this is a serious matter--> "KKK? That's a pretty fucked up, ignorant thing to say. Get your head out of your ass, bro."

    Yelp... Dude, Bro, my brother man, that was about as serious as a bag of frog spit. And Bro, a word to the wise, it's too late to play the nut-role. Surely you've heard the idiom "A fox smells his own hole OR A fox smells its own lair first, OR A fox smells its own stink first.

    Well, in case you've lived up someone's ass or in a cave on the moon, they're used to mean that if a person is accusing another of say, stanking like fish booty or "are pretty fked up"... or, "you're making no sense" it's most likely because they've experienced a similar fate. So dude, bro, huggy bear, continue with your grown up talk. But remember, everyone knows that a C. Fox smells his own hole, first.

  • C. Fox | March 22, 2013 3:10 PM

    @CC - Dude, your response doesn't make any sense. This is a serious matter. Let the grown ups talk.

  • CC | March 22, 2013 11:09 AM

    "Get your head out of your ass, bro."... "IndieWire made the mistake [...] low caliber like you"... "That's an immature way to respond"

    And listen who's talking. A Fox smells his on hole. But try this on for size: Blow it out your ass.

    As Marie implied above, Sergio presented a valid comparison. But you, on the other hand, your comparisons only focused on the extremes. So who's really being immature, short-sighted and an extreme knucklehead?

  • C. Fox | March 22, 2013 10:11 AM

    That's an immature way to respond, Sergio. It's too bad that IndieWire made the mistake of hiring a writer of such low caliber. Come on, man. We all make mistakes. I don't support the Tea Party, but you said something pretty damn racist and demeaning to the suffering caused by the KKK.

  • Aaron | March 22, 2013 9:21 AM

    By comparing the Tea Party to the KKK you are diminishing the evil of the KKK. It is the same when people on the right compare Obama to Hitler. Neither does any good, but diminish actual evil in this world.
