As the election season heats up, will we see the Republican Tea Party Caucus repeatedly “distancing itself” from a motley crew of racists? You betcha:
Mark Williams, the flamethrower leading the battle against the Ground Zero mosque, was kicked out of the National Tea Party Federation Saturday for a racist blog post.
He shrugged off the diss, calling it “grandstanding” from a “minor player on the fringe.”
A California radio host and leader of the Tea Party Express, Williams had labeled the Manhattan borough president a “Jewish Uncle Tom” and President Obama an “Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug.”
But when he posted a satirical letter supposedly from “the Colored People” to President Lincoln praising slavery, that apparently crossed the line.
Racist teabaggers aren’t too bright. A lot of them don’t even know they’re racists. It’s going to be hard for Michele Bachmann to keep a muzzle on all of them.
