When the TEA Party arrived on the scene a few years ago the progressives and their media wing made the claim that the Party was all white, a bunch of redneck racists. Chris Matthews of MSNBC made the false accusation that “All of them, every single one of them is white.” when referring to the TEA Party. This, of course, is demonstrably false but Matthews had his marching orders from the Democrats and he had to paint the TEA Party as a non diverse group of racists. Matthews has no obligation to report the truth because he told us that it is his job to make sure Obama succeeds. Keep in mind that he will approach every task with that as his goal. What he says or does is designed to fulfill his job of ensuring Obama succeeds.
Dana Milbank of the Washington Post reported on a question being asked about the Tea Party and an upcoming rally (from September 2010) being another event distinguished by a sea of white faces. This prompted groups to go to efforts to highlight those who attended who were not part of the white sea. I have been to a number of TEA Party events and there is diversity. It does not look like a rainbow and the math suggests that it never could.
The American population is overwhelmingly white. About 70% of the population is white and 12% is black. The rest are other ethnicities. 95% of all blacks are aligned with the Democrat party. The TEA Party is not a political party but it is based on conservative principles. While many blacks are conservative in their lives they are unlikely to attend an event reported to them by the media wing as being a Republican event. They are unlikely to attend something that they perceive as being against the black man they voted for. They are unlikely to attend something their Democrat leaders have told them is bad.
So mathematically, there are not going to be a lot of faces that are not white in any random crowd, much less a TEA Party crowd.
But this does not stop the media wing of the Democrat party from calling the TEA Party racists and suggesting that there is no diversity or that only white people are allowed. Those talking heads in the Democrat media have no clue about the math or what any given crowd would look like.
One only needs to look at the Occupy Wall Street movement to see the math play out. Those groups, all across the country, are awash in a sea of white, to borrow from Milbank’s piece. There are no black faces to be found. The white light failed to hit the prism. If Chris Matthews’ job was not to ensure Obama succeeded he might say; All of them, every single one of them is white.
The left is no more diverse than the right.
The OWS movement has been orchestrated by the left. It is supported by the left and its backers in labor. One would think that with all the diversity the left allegedly has the protests it has organized would contain more colors than white.
You won’t hear about this in the news and you won’t read about it in any of the print papers. You will not hear the very people who bashed the TEA Party say anything about the lack of diversity on the left.
It does not fit the narrative. It does not fit with what they preach. It does not support their claims.
So they have to ignore it. Just like the OWS protesters ignore reality while they demand the rich pay more in taxes and that debt be forgiven. They ignore the truth about taxes while demanding the wealthy give their money away (to the OWS folks, of course).
Dick Morris recently reported:
Here are the facts according to the IRS:
- Those making more than $1 million pay 24% of income in taxes
- Those making $200,000 to $300,000 pay 17.5%
- Those making $100,000 to $125,000 pay 9.9%
- Those making $50,000 to $60,000 pay 6.3%
- Those making $20,000 to $30,000 pay 2.5%
What level of income do you think the OWS (those poor WHITE) folks are in? Many, by their own admission, are not working so they pay no taxes (and will undoubtedly get money back in the IRS redistribution scheme) and they are protesting for the 1% (the wealthy) to pay their fair share.
The numbers do not lie. The wealthy are paying most of the taxes in this country and certainly more than their fair share.
