Ohio Tea Party Member Flies Confederate Flag During Racist Rant at School Board Meeting
Yet another local tea party run by white supremacists and Constitution party creeps who want their version of GOD! in your government.
Springboro, Ohio residents are up in arms after a member of the local tea party unfurled a Confederate flag at a meeting of the town’s school board Thursday. According to Huffington Post, Sonny Thomas, who bills himself as the president and founder of the Springboro Tea Party was protesting the removal of a set of religiously-themed and ideologically slanted classes from the district’s summer curriculum.
Thomas, who has a history of racist and inflammatory statements, reportedly gave an impassioned defense of the classes, which were intended for parents and children. The summer courses were sponsored by the Institute of the Constitution, an offshoot group from right-wing think tank The American View and the National Center for Constitutional Studies, a religious-themed nationalist group funded by the Church of Latter Day Saints.
In his speech, Thomas made racist remarks, invoked neo-Confederate group The League of the South and displayed the Confederate flag, saying that African-Americans in the U.S. “should consider themselves lucky since they are treated better in the United States than they would be if they were in ‘Black Countries’ with ‘genocide,’” according to Springboro resident Nimisha Patel.
Patel also noted the school board members showed unusual deference to Thomas, allowing his remarks to run over his allotted time slot. They also allowed him to stay for the rest of the meeting, whereas other speakers who the board deemed problematic were escorted from the premises.
If you are wondering just how far right wing nutty “The American View” is, here are the top ten reasons you should take their constitution
Reason #10: Because we offer it at an affordable price and you want to be a responsible citizen of these united States and our Republic.
Reason #9: To prepare you for what could be the winning question about the Constitution if you go on “Jeopardy.”
Reason #8: Because if you do NOT purchase our course and take it yourself, you will believe the lies you will hear, such as that we are a “democracy” and that “separation of church and state” is in the First Amendment.
Reason #7: To show off at parties how smart you are and be able to explain, in detail, why EVERYTHING Congress does is UN-Constitutional and therefore a crime!
Reason #6: To be able to pick fights and win money, by being able to PROVE that James Madison most certainly DID define the meaning of the “general welfare” clause and it is NOT what most people think this clause means—one example being that this clause does NOT mean that any general in our military is entitled to getting welfare!
Reason #5: So, if Federal agents kidnap you, take you to Guantanamo, torture you, hold you indefinitely without charges, deny you a lawyer AND a trial, you can tell your kidnappers and PROVE the fact that they have, among other things, violated the Constitution of these United States!
Reason #4: To be able go to town hall meetings and explain to your elected officials—patiently, winsomely and with detailed knowledge—that the public treasury is NOT their own personal piggy-bank, but instead money that may be spent ONLY on things authorized by the U.S. Constitution.
Reason #3: And, admittedly, this one is a bit dicey and could end up poorly for you: You need to purchase the U.S. Constitution course and take it so that when you make a citizen’s arrest on Obama for impersonating a President, you are able explain how the Constitution requires that a President be “a natural born citizen,” which he is NOT, and, thus, he is NOT President.
Reason #2: You need to purchase our US Constitution course course for the sake of world peace and for THE KIDS!—two things that do not, of course, relate DIRECTLY to YOU buying our course, but certainly your purchasing our course would not HURT world peace or the kids …
The Number One Reason reason for purchasing our course and taking it is that, after you have done this, you will be able, late at night, alone, in the privacy of your own home, to sit smugly in your most comfortable chair and know, for certain, that YOU know more about our Constitution than all the people in all three branches of our national government combined!—with the possible exception of Ron Paul …
