Depending upon whose numbers one choses to use, the number of Americans who self-identify as being T.E.A. Party affiliated is around 15 million on the low end, 36 million on the high. How can a movement of 20, 25, 30 million people be “racist?” Really. How is that even possible? Did a mass email go out one day to 90 or 100 million Americans saying some variation of, “If you’re just upset over having a black man in the Oval Office, come join us this April 15th for a protest rally”? And then 15 or 20% or so of those people responded, “Good idea! I’ll be there.”? If so, where is that email? I’ve never seen it. Who has a copy? Why hasn’t it ever been produced and trumpeted on MSNBC or any other media outlet? Were robocalls done, promoting the same message and encouraging people to “Join a local T.E.A. Party and let your white pride be known”? Surely someone must have a recording of one somewhere – where is it?
