Mr. Marcus is pulling no punches on this editorial…
I am a black man alerting my fellow Americans about a tremendous evil which is going on in our great country. Despite the wonderful racial gains we have made in terms of coming together, not as hyphenated Americans, but as Americans, black civil rights dinosaurs and their liberal white guilt ridden sycophants campaign to “Keep Hate Alive”.
The Black Civil Rights Mafia has long ago abandoned MLK’s dream of a day when all Americans would be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin. America’s “Black Mob” makes everything about skin color to “get paid” and gain political power.
What is so evil about the Black Mob is their willingness to sacrifice national race relations and the best interest of their fellow blacks for personal gain and to further a socialist agenda.
Here is a prime example of the Black Mob’s modus operandi. Glenn Beck held his “Restoring Honor” rally on the same day as MLK’s famous speech. Al Sharpton, during his speech at his counter rally, despicably misrepresented the purpose of Beck’s rally. Sharpton proclaimed, “They want to disgrace this day!” Sharpton’s lie was designed to inspire hate for Beck and the mostly white conservatives in attendance at Beck’s rally. http://www.thefoxnation.com/rev-al-sharpton/2010/08/30/beck-and-sharpton-enter-no-spin-zone
AYFKM? Enough Already! I had to stop watching MSNBC when they went over to the dark side during the primaries, but the imbecility and bias of Chris Matthews continues to amaze me. Has this guy never heard of Lloyd Marcus, Ken Gladney, or Katrina Pierson, and when is he going to drop the campaign to incite a race war?
Chris Matthews just can’t stop implying some sort of racist motives behind tea-partiers as on Tuesday’s Hardball, the MSNBC host – in a segment about which candidate they would gravitate towards – asked his guests why the protestors were all “monochromatic,” and to add insult to injury repeatedly called them “teabaggers.”
The following exchanges were aired on the January 5 edition of Hardball:
CHRIS MATTHEWS: So who will lead the tea-baggers? Will it be Rick Perry down in Texas? Will it be Michele Bachman out in Minnesota? Will it be Sarah Palin? You first Mark [McKinnon] it’s your idea. The tea-baggers are an interesting group to watch. They’re not far right. They’re probably center-right, in fact some centrists. But they’re generally, I think, Republican voters. Right? Is that fair to say? They vote Republican?
MATTHEWS: And they’re monochromatic right?
MARK MCKINNON, THE DAILY BEAST: Well I don’t know that they’re monochromatic?
MATTHEWS: They’re not? Every picture I see shows them to be.
MCKINNON: Well there’s a lot of people out there that cuts across a lot of demographics who feel disenfranchised.
MATTHEWS: But not that other demographic.
MCKINNON: The other demographic?
MATTHEWS: Meaning they’re all white. All of them, every single one of them is white.
MCKINNON: I think that’s, I think that’s a fair characterization, predominately.
MATTHEWS: Yeah well what’s that about?
So I dragged this video, from Katrina Pierson at the Dallas Tea Party on 4.15.09, out of the vault as a reminder to one and all what we are all about. I do believe we should stuff Mr. Matthews email box with this video, and start boycotting his sponsors because of the above mentioned campaign. What say you?
A few thoughts about racism from Lloyd Marcus, the singer/songwriter for the Tea Party Express Theme:
I traveled on the Tea Party Express tour bus as a singer/songwriter, entertainer and spokesperson; 16 states, 34 rallies in two weeks. I experienced vicious racial verbal attacks, not from the tea party protesters. The racial hate expressed against me all came from the left, people who support president Obama’s radial socialist agenda.
Unfortunately, my deleted email box is littered with numerous messages expressing the following, “You are the dumbest self hating f****** n***** I have ever seen!” These racists are outraged by my opening lines I boldly proclaimed at each rally. “Hello my fellow patriots! I am NOT an African-American! I am Lloyd Marcus, AMERCIAN!” At every rally, my proclamation inspired great applause and cheers of joy and approval from the audiences. After each rally many came to me with tears in their eyes. They said, “I thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you said. I am Irish (or Italian, or Asian) American. And yet, I would never hyphenate. I feel hyphening divides us. While it is fine to honor one’s origin, let’s all be American first”.
The tea party audience’s passionate response to my proclamation was a surprise to me. I did not know so many Americans disapproved of hyphenating pushed on us via political correctness.
I rejected hyphenating years ago. One day I woke up and heard I was no longer black, I was African American. Anyone rejecting the new term was called ignorant, insensitive and an Uncle Tom if you are black. Not intending to be provocative or controversial, I casually stated that I am not a hyphenated American, but simply an American at a tea party. The audience’s cheers of approval was surprising and heartwarming.
As I said, I am a singer, songwriter, entertainer and columnist using my gifts to spread the message that conservatism is best for all Americans. Liberal’s response to my YouTube videos, columns and performances on the Tea Party Express have been extremely racist, vicious and hate filled. In their incredible arrogance, they vilify me for loving my country and not viewing myself as a victim of white America. In the sick minds of liberals, as a black man in America, I must support president Obama regardless of his policies. I must resent white America. I must feel entitled to the earnings of other Americans. My belief that my success or failure is totally in the hands of myself and my God is an anathema to them.
As to the claim that the tea party protesters are racist, they are not. Quite the opposite. At every rally with thousands in attendance, I was overwhelmingly showered with affection and thanks for standing up for America. At one rally, a sign read, “Lloyd Marcus for President”. These protesters are not racist. They are decent hard working oridinary Americans who love their country and disapprove of the radial changes planned by the Obama administration. Race is not an issue with them. They have deep concerns for their country.
Disgustingly, Obama-ites use race to silence the protesters. They know it is an effective weapon to use against decent people. Ironically, the people the Obam-ites call racist are the same people who hate hyphenating. They want to be united as Americans.
The grand finale of the Tea Party Express Tour took place Saturday, September 12 in Washington DC at the U.S. Capitol. I performed my song, Twenty Ten. The crowd of over a million loved it. C-Span posted my performance on YouTube. Shamefully, C-Span had to delete the hate-filled racist comments posted by Obama supporters in response to my performance. Why do so-called tolerant and compassionate liberals think it is OK to freely use the “N” word when referring to blacks who escape the “liberal plantation”?
Despite Obama-ite’s hideous charges of racism, this amazing tea party movement is driven by passion, concern and love of country by the American people. A Tea Party Express “whistle stop” in Mt. Vernon, Texas epitomized the mood of the movement.
We were late leaving our Dallas, Texas rally. We would arrive late at our rally in Memphis, Tennessee. The decision was made to cancel the road side “whistle stop” in Mt. Vernon, Texas. Besides, it was only suppose to be a brief stop for a few folks to tour the bus, take pictures and give us homemade treats. Then, we received the call, “You MUST stop. There are a lot of people here!” The State Police lead our Tea Party Express Tour bus into a crowd of 500 to 800 cheering excited people. They treated us like rock stars. Totally unprepared, the truck with our sound system was on it’s way to Memphis. We did not have a sound system or a stage.
We made our way through the crowd to the bed of a pick up truck. National radio talk show host Mark Williams, blue star mom Deborah Johns, singer Diana Nagy, the Rivoli Revue (Ron and Kay) and myself climbed on board. Someone handed Mark a bull horn which he used to encourage the extremely enthusiastic crowd. We said the Pledge of Allegiance and Diana lead in the singing of “God Bless America”. Many in the crowd were sobbing. Then they showered us with thanks, hugs, bottled water, bags of shacks and homemade treats. I thought, “How many angry racist mobs bake and bring brownies and overwhelm a black guy with affection and hugs?”
Once back on the bus, our team struggled to hold back tears. We felt humbled, honored and blessed. Though extremely well received at each rally, this “whistle stop” drove home the passion, love of country, and importance of our mission to preserve and Take Back America!
The Tea Party protesters are hard working decent people who love their country and want us all united as Americans. I am highly offended that this evil administration seeks to divide us, not just by race, but also by class envy. As I said to many of the audiences along the Tea Party Express bus tour, “I love you. Stay strong. Do not allow their calling you a racist to shut you up! Stand up for America. God bless you. And God bless America!”
