What a Surprise: Racism at Tea Party Rally

Filed under: Uncategorized — ronrosenbaumwriter @ 2:18 pm

Any of you Tea Party types want to defend this? Any of you want to repudiate it?. I’ll be eager to see how many of you oh-so-vocal commenters are suddenly silent in the face of it. Or express some kind of denial. Silence equals complicity.



  1. “Silence equals complicity.”

    So since at most you’ll get only a few commentators does that mean that thousands of other Tea Partiers are guilty because they don’t know about you? Or is it a more representational thing?

    How does guilt by association work?

    On a more tangible note is this how the game is played?

    Can anyone find any vile comment and demand it be repudiated?

    You’ve yet to repudiate the NYT’s cover up of the Holodomor? Can we accuse you of supporting Ukrainian Genocide?

    As another note… get some self awareness. Ron you do this game on nearly all of your posts. You find some offensive incident and then demand people repudiate it.

    Do you really expect people to keep jumping through your hoops?

    I guess you’re happy going after the little fish (commentators), where if you challenged the big fish (your boss and coworkers) you might loose your precious, precious PJM blog.

  2. And here’s something your coworker Zombie reported (gonna scream about him/her using a penname?).

    Yes, how dare those Tea Baggers compare the President to Hitler.

    Clearly the entire Left is guilty of these crimes. I don’t see you repudiating these specific incidents.

    “Silence equals complicity.”

  3. Right. You take at face value the uncorroborated claims of Andre Carson, of all people? Why don’t you ask Jesse and Al while you’re at it?

    Here’s some friendly advice, Ron. I’ve known me for most of my life. All of it, in fact. If I were a racist I’m pretty sure I would have noticed by now. So- and here’s where you need to pay attention, Ron- you telling me I’m a racist isn’t likely to convince me. No matter if you do repeat it over and over and over and over and over…..

  4. “Rep. Andre Carson (D-Ind.) said Saturday that healthcare protesters at the Capitol directed racial epithets at him and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) as they walked outside.”

    Deny or repudiate it? I have no reason to begin to suspect the “deem and passers” were telling the truth in the first place. After all Ron, you seem to think it happened, and I know you’re warped.

  5. Remember that accusing someone without proof is as good as them being guilty of the crime…. at least according to ron…

    Its not like theirs some long history of far leftwing blacks making up fake racism to support theirs goals… nope never happens on college campuses or anyway… never.

  6. “”

    The above link is to video which substantiates my skepticism.

    Will you retract your post, Mr. Rosenbaum?

  7. Yes, the Left gets to call Tea Partiers a sexual epithet, and blatantly so, but one Tea Partier calls a Congressman the N word and the Left gets in a huff. Of course, there’s no proof of the situation and I’m sure that IF the Congressman was a called that he’d probably stop and confront that person there and that many Tea Partiers who are NOT racists would have as well. I know that I would have confronted them, but once again let’s slur an entire group based on the sayings of one person.

    The Left is always trying to paint those on the Right as nothing but bigots. Perhaps you guys should look in the mirror and use a dictionary to look up the definition of prejudice:

    You guys know that the majority of everyone on the Right are NOT racists, but you persist in stating that it is so. So the only ones who are bigots is the party that has always used bigotry to gain advantage. Mr. Rosenbaum, I believe that you are part of that party.
