So what if you threw an event celebrating the diversity of a movement and no diversity actually showed up?
On these here Interwebs we call that #fail.
The Tea Party bowel movement was desperate to show that it really wasn’t the Angry White Man Party by throwing a “Uni-Tea” rally. Shame on the nasty NAACP for calling them racists. They’d show them. An overflowing level of support from people of many different races, colors, and creeds. Right.
Um…no. I hate to hearken back to days of old and bring up another GOP diversity fail – what am I saying you know I love to – but the old Blackwell “White dude, white chick, white chick, white dude” post comes to mind.
Here we go again:
OK, so count along shall we? (from left to right)
Oh hell. You get the picture! Literally.
I’d add that turnout was pretty pathetic. Maybe that’s a clue. Your average Tea Party faithful wants nothing to do with that there thing called diversity dontcha know. Of course not everyone at a TP rally is a racist, but you’re not paying attention if you don’t notice the serious racial undertones of the movement and see it rear it’s ugly head in an undeniable fashion.
