Proof that the Tea Party is just the Ku Klux Klan

The leader of the KKK had the following to say about its message.

"In our rallies our messages are about immigration, same-sex marriages, and many major other topics that are killing our society today. If you want to call me racist for I love my white race and my country, then go ahead, but don't just shut out the world. You can't just look past all of our country's downfalls," Knight said.

4. sorry, you don't see it, it's that

the KKK is anti gay marriage and anti immigration. The same themes of the Tea Party. Or am I wrong about the Tea Party's beliefs? I don't think so.

5. I don't see it either

and I don't think making these kinds of associations without backing it up is helpful. It's equivalent to when they call us socialists or commies.

3. To their credit, the KKK do not mince words about how they feel;

they don't use inaccurate euphemisms to describe why they don't like someone/something. The Teabaggers' specialty is clouding the message in crazy.

6. aside from the blatant bit about "my white race" ...

I would think that this came straight from a Newt Gingrich (or, for that matter, any other Repug) speech ...

7. Actually, that is not true

True Teapartiers believe in austere fiscal conservatism. The original platform does not care about social issues and is quite libertarian. I have one in my family and I can tell you they are not anti gay or anti immigrant or racist. He just thinks the government WASTES too much money on stupid stuff and does not spend enough money on important stuff.

8. Every teabagger I know is an outspoken racist. I know many of them. (I associate with a lot of

seniors and many are teabaggers)

11. I hope those pictures were photoshopped and not real.

If they are real, that's a bit troubling.

12. Very real

Just do a google search for 'Tea Party racist signs', and see what you come up with.

9. I tried to explain this to the father in law, and of course

he wasn't going to listen.
