Tea Party Mounts Massive Effort to Support Crazy Neo-Confederate in Mississippi
Here’s a good lengthy article at the Washington Post on the Tea Party’s all-out push in Mississippi to get out the vote for racist, homophobic neo-Confederate candidate Chris McDaniel: In Mississippi, Jenny Beth Martin and Tea Party Patriots Try to Prove Their Worth.
I think this is my favorite part of the article:
“This is about character, honor and integrity that used to be a hallmark of the country,” says Robert Edward Kenney, a man in a wheelchair with a big white beard and a confederate-flag-inspired bandana. “The way we are being portrayed is like we’re domestic terrorists with baby’s veins and guts hanging out of our teeth. They say we are fringe — do I look fringe to you?”
Unfortunately, he’s right. There’s nothing “fringe” at all about people who flaunt the Confederate flag in today’s Republican Party.
