Prominent Black Activist Admits Branding Tea Party Racist Is Effective Tool For NAACP & Democrats

Prominent black activist Mary Frances Berry admitted today that accusing the tea party activists of being racists is an effective tool for the democrats and far left organizations.

Mary Frances Berry admitted this at the Politico:

Professor of American Social Thought and History, U. Penn. :

Tainting the tea party movement with the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats. There is no evidence that tea party adherents are any more racist than other Republicans, and indeed many other Americans. But getting them to spend their time purging their ranks and having candidates distance themselves should help Democrats win in November. Having one’s opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness.

And, there you have it. Democrats are flinging the r-word as a political maneuver. We all knew it. Now they admit it.

    Yes, we knew it all along. Yet, even now that they are acknowledging it, they will still get away with it.

    Wow. Democrats are so shameless SOB using race to advance themselves.

    I am getting really sick of all these bastards, lying about us. THEY are the ones doing all the racism. Typical lefty tactic, accuse your enemy falsely of what YOU are doing.

    I would like to congradulate Mary Berry on her honesty. Amazing how many conservatives fall and step right into the race lobster traps these baiters place in the water. Too bad more blacks don’t make proper use of this talent and take up a career in fishing.

    Right, Ms. Berry. Playing the race card has been an effective tool for decades. Seventy percent bastardy rate? Play the race card. Pathetic dropout rate? Play the race card. Astronomical crime rate? You get the idea.

    If anyone is smelling bad in all this, it’s the gaggle of grifters masquerading as civil-rights leaders.

    Is not using false accusations to incite racial hatred and possible racial violence a federal crime?
    Only white people are racist, colored people are victims.

    When in doubt, Whip it out ….The Race Card, Don’t leave home without it!

    “There is no evidence that Tea Party adherents are any more racist…
    …than other Republicans.”

    You devious slunt. I see what you did there. See, all us Republicans are racist — no reason to believe that these folks are more willing to burn a cross on a lawn than the rest of us Racist Repubs.

    I stand by my “devious slunt” remark, however inappropriate it might be for just about any other woman on Earth, as I do believe that, here, it is entirely apropos, if not slightly less than *fully* descriptive.

    Her words might make a good 30second ad for a few Tea Party-endorsed candidates.

    WEll, Madam makes a good point, wasting time and energy “purging.” Since by her admission, the Tea Party is innocent, so no time and effort necessary “purging” innocents. Print out her statement, and hand it out in quanities. Any Tea Partier on MSM news has it in his or her pocket and reads it when the “r” word is invoked. Then read off a list of Democratic Party abuses against Blacks for the past 140 years and ask why does the NAACP tolerate the Democratic Party to represent them?

    It’s a very good question and no one has answered it as yet.

    It’s disgraceful idiocy to cooperate with the communist tactic of purging: oppressing people to confess for “sins” they never committed, piblic humilitation, casting out, then groveling back abjectly begging the “authorities” to be restored.

    Berry was the chairwoman of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission during the early Bush (43) term. A member whose term expired was to be replaced by a Bush appointee.

    The rules were interpreted that the the-current member’s term would run for a full six years, instead of serving out the two years of the previous deceased member.

    Rules are for thee and not for me…

    and the MSM is all over it. Did you see Anderson Cooper on CNN? I had to take a peek a wish I hadn’t. This spine has the white house all over it. Let’s gather around and support Obama just like Tucker Carlson said.

    The left forgets that the people in the Tea Party Movement and those who are for and against the same things as the Tea Party Movement, do not like being labelled as racists. The only people this is helping the democrats with are those stuck on stupid and racists themselves. The left are preaching to their own choir, while the Tea Party Movement is reaching out to all people of all colors because they are dealing with the issues important to most Americans. This racist label is going to get old quick, and then what will the left do? I am sure it will be much uglier.
