Imagine if the Tea Parties explicitly said, “look how we here are all White. Only White people care about the Constitution.”
They don’t do that, though. They’d welcome anyone who cared about the Constitution.
- only White people care about the Constitution.
One important difference, however, is race. At Tea Party rallies you don’t see faces with dark complexions. Another important distinction is that men and women are drawn to this sprawling movement for a variety of overlapping but possibly different reasons. Both men and women seem to embrace an incoherent “ideology” which calls for freedom from government, no taxes, and an inchoate desire to “take back America,” which means restoring the nation to some moment when the country was white and “safe.
That’s the real story behind the “lilywhite Tea Parties” accusation — far more damning for the idea of “racial equality” than the Leftist, “if it’s white, it’s racist.” James Edwards nailed that one on the head with his book “Racism, Schmacism.”
Only White people create governments that voluntarily restrain themselves. Every other race creates lawless dictatorships.
