Bags Full of Tea

Yes, Mark William's letter has been posted everywhere as has his confusing "banishment" from, uh, whom? First, just in case the reader somehow missed it, here is the letter Williams posted at his blog in response to the NAACP's official call for the tea baggers to renounce racism.

Dear Mr. Lincoln,

We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don’t cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!

In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the ‘tea party movement’.

The tea party position to “end the bailouts” for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn’t that what we want all Coloreds to strive for? What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.

And the ridiculous idea of “reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government.” What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!

The racist tea parties also demand that the government "stop the out of control spending." Again, they directly target coloreds. That means we Coloreds would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.

Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government "stop raising our taxes." That is outrageous! How will we coloreds ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?

Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.

No racism here. Well, as a result, The National Tea Party Federation, an organization that seeks to represent the Tea Party political movement around the country, expelled Williams and his Tea Party Express organization from, uh, the Federation.

As a result, the Tea Party Express now says:

The Tea Party Express with over 400,000 members is by far larger than the Tea Party Federation’s entire membership. Most rank-and-file tea party activists think we’re talking about Star Trek when we try to explain who the “Federation” is. Given the absurdity of the actions by the "Federation," this is quite fitting, since their conduct is alien to our membership.

Groups trying to say who can or can't be "expelled" from the tea party movement is arrogant and preposterous. Perhaps this explains why so many tea party groups have left the "Federation" during the past few months. Whatever the reason, most tea party activists are focused on taking back their country and the upcoming 2010 elections and not silly power games being played by individuals such as those in the "Federation."

To add to the absurdity of the "Federation" they have also informed us that our members can't participate in something called their "basecamp" communication network, which makes us think that the individuals involved in the "Federation" spend a bit too much time watching science fiction movies and cartoons. We here at the Tea Party Express prefer a focus that is more grounded in the Constitution and electing tea party conservatives to offices of import in these 2010 elections.

The "Federation" has enabled and empowered the NAACP's racist attacks on the tea party movement, and they should be ashamed of themselves.

Circular firing squads of groups within the tea party movement attacking one another accomplish nothing, and on this issue the Tea Party Federation is wrong, and has both enabled and empowered the NAACP’s racist attacks on the tea party movement. Which is something they'll realize when they beam themselves back from basecamp.

Unbelievable. Williams published his own book, Taking Back America. It's chapters consist of (my remarks in italics):

1. Why Obama is dangerous and must be stopped
Yes, let's return to an imbecile like GWB.

2. How the media has lined up against the nation
Does he mean Rush Limbaugh or Fox News?

3. Why "Under God" is important
The founding fathers didn't think so.

4. Who is the real enemy of liberty?

5. Liberals really ARE mentally ill
He's in such a position to offer a prognosis.

6. Real racism
Yes, from a seasoned expert leading by example.

7. The Savagry of Islam and how political correctness led to 9/11
So THAT'S why Osama Bin Laden hates us!

8. Are Tea Parties radical?
Are cross burnings?

9. What is the "Tea Party" and who are the "Tea Partiers"?
Uh, this hasn't been slammed on the front pages for months?

10. How the author cured his own liberalism
This can't possibly be serious.

11. Why the Tea Party movement is a Human Rights movement
I think I'm going to throw up.

Sickening, and it's not like he just blurted something out by accident in the middle of a conversation or was caught on tape when he didn't think anyone could hear.

This was deliberately written for publication and published.
