Are Tea Parties Racist?

Juan Williams says no: Tea Party Anger Reflects Mainstream Concerns (

The tea party outrage over health-care reform, deficit spending and entitlements run amok is no fringe concern. And it is insulting to all voters to suggest that criticism of President Obama, even by people who want to throw him out of office, is motivated by racism.

The Democrats want to insult the Tea Partiers and paint them as racists. But there are lots of voters who identify with the Tea Party concerns, or at least understand them. Democrats are tarring them with the same brush, and it won't go over well in November.
