The “Tea Parties Are Racist” Lie

After being interviewed as a guest on two radio programs back-to-back, I was angry and frustrated. I had to endure radio talk show hosts and callers who have never attended a tea party, tell me how racist the rallies are. Not only will this false accusation of racism not go away, it appears to be growing stronger.


The tea party attendees are moms, dads, kids, grandparents and yes, mostly white, but they are not racist. Many even voted for Obama. They are decent hard working Americans who love their country and do not want it “transformed” into Europe. For the ga-zillionth time, I will state this truth, the tea parties are not about race!

So how has the “tea parties are racist” lie become so solidly branded into the minds of many? Then, it hit me. “It’s the media, stupid.” Last year I appeared on CNN fielding accusations that the tea parties are racist gatherings. During my interview, CNN showed the same sign of Obama as a witch doctor several times. Meanwhile, 99.9% of the signs on display at the rallies expressed opposition to Obama’s policies only.

The liberal mainstream media attempts to put and keep us tea party patriots on the defensive. They scream, “You should denounce those people carrying racist signs”. Well, who died and made the “agenda driven” liberal mainstream media the final authority on what is racist? According to them, anything short of fawning approval of Obama is racist.

Lloyd Marcus: It’s The Media, Stupid!


  1. I'm liberal, I've been to 3 Tea Party events, and I think I've never heard more racist things than I have at Tea Party events.

  2. I'm moderately liberal, but in Atlanta, and I've heard dozens of people defending TEA party activities with a clearly racist attack on Obama or anyone who disagrees with them.

  3. America: Don't change. If you do you'll be left with milky white politics like up here in Canada.

    Liberals? They still exist?

    Anyway is it me or did the anchorman dude come off as an amateur? I say hire Lloyd.

  4. Get over it: some people at Tea Party events are racist. No liberal is saying the whole movement is about racism, only that there is clearly a racist contingent. It's also not Christian, but there's plenty of Christians, it's also not Libertarian but there are plenty of Libertarians. People are excited about it because some are so fed up with what we have, they'll take anything.

    Me, I'm not sold on the idea of a "political outsider." I wouldn't have surgery done by a doctor who calls himself a "medical rogue," or have my taxes performed by an accountant who says he "completely redefines numbers." In fact, the only professionals we seem to value for having no experience are politicians and prostitutes. Coincidence?
