In my latest piece for Aol News, I gave the Tea Party the benefit of the doubt.
For well over a year now members of the group have denied accusations that they are a racist organization. Sure enough, founders of the group are more tied to libertarian ideology than classic American klansman philosophy, but that doesn’t negate they’ve allowed the buffoons of the country to hijack their movement because there is strength in numbers.
I really, really tried to be fair to the group despite wishing to send the whole lot of them to some deserted island. Those interested can let me know if I did a decent job. I’m pretty certain I’ll be seeing “you’re racist you black bastard” emails by mid-afternoon, though.
