‘Tea Party Federation’ Expels ‘Tea Party Express’ for Nonexistent Racism

Wingnuts • Views: 2,031

After screaming all week that there is absolutely no racism in Tea Party groups, today the “National Tea Party Federation” expelled Mark Williams and his “Tea Party Express” for … something. Couldn’t be racism, there is none in the Tea Party.

Now, of course, they’ll claim the nonexistent problem is solved.

“We, in the last 24 hours, have expelled Tea Party Express and Mark Williams from the National Tea Party Federation because of the letter that he wrote,” David Webb said of the blog post by Williams that satirized a fictional letter from what he called “Colored People” to President Abraham Lincoln.

I don’t get it. Just a few days ago David Webb was swearing up and down that the NAACP are the real racists, and that their accusation of racist elements in the Tea Party is false, false, completely false.

“A false charge of racism is itself, racist,” New York tea party organizer David Webb said. “This resolution shows they no longer serve the black community’s interests to advance people of color within American culture. Instead, they exert their power to isolate and control people of color.”

And David Webb is still denying today, even as he announces that one of the national spokespeople of the Tea Party movement has been expelled for one of the ugliest racist screeds I’ve ever read.

UPDATE at 7/18/10 10:54:03 am:

The National Tea Party Federation’s press release doesn’t even mention the reason for the expulsion: Effective Immediately, Tea Party Express Is No Longer a Member
of the National Tea Party Federation
