I merely related what I personally know of the Tea Party and made the observation that you seem to be fixated upon equating them with all the worst humanity has to offer. The Tea Party has all races, Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians, Independents and others in it's ranks. What brings them together is a common desire to restore sanity to Washington's budget process and make the Constitution more than an inconvenient roadblock to a power mad professional political class. But I find it interesting that race is what you focused on in re to my statement. I believe that it is because as a progressive you practice identity politics and do not see the individual but rather the group. That is one of the main differences between conservatives and progressives.
