Resentment And Bitterness

The Tea Party. Not just about politics anymore. As if it ever was. WISER, via Think Progress:
"(E)ven as we account for conservatism and partisanship, support for the Tea Party remains a valid predictor of racial resentment."

Multi-state survey of Race & Politics

"(S)upport for the Tea Party makes one 25 percent more likely to be racially resentful than those who don't support the Tea Party."

Just ask Rush.

Still screaming race? What's amazing about the left is their inability to attack the core beliefs of TEA Partiers. Instead, the tactic seems to be to try to marginalize the movement by discrediting it with accusations of racism. Saul Alinsky would be proud.

Rule 5: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It’s hard to counterattack ridicule, and it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage.

Seems the left picks and chooses which rules of Alinsky's they like, just like they do with the Bible and Constitution.

No one's buying the racism crap anymore, except people that would vote Democrap anyway.

Rule 7: A tactic that drags on for too long becomes a drag. Commitment may become ritualistic as people turn to other issues.

Your survey means dick to me, as do all surveys. I'm just pointing out the left's tactics, which they wouldn't need if they had a good argument to begin with.

It seems to me the Dems are the one's who can't look past race. Dr. King's dream didn't involve quotas based on the color of your skin.

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Survey's don't mean dick to you eh?

So you're saying the folks out at UWash are just making this shit up?

Well ok then. Up to you.

Stop putting words in my mouth. I didn't accuse anyone of "making shit up." Surveys and polls can be slanted quite easily. It's not the question you ask, it's how you ask it.
