Why is the Tea Party considered Bigots and Racists?



I'm not sure, I may have asked this before. A black guy posted something on social media and labeled Ted Cruz an idiot. He didn't hear anything other than seeing a headline speaking of the news that Cruz read Green Eggs and Ham on the senate floor.

I go on to tell him that it was more about the message and a movement to show the American people what kind of politicians are in the US. Old, tired professional politicians that do not care about anyone outside of DC.

He goes on to say that Cruz is a racist and a bigot and I can only assume that he's saying that because Cruz is a member of the "Tea Party Republicans" who are trying to ruin the world.

What history am I missing here for Cruz to be labeled as such?

Because liberals have little to no rational argument against them.

In our society, it is the easiest negative label or connotation one person or group can give to another person or group because it requires zero proof, yet is incumbent on that person or entity accused to disprove.

Yeah, i get that.

I'm just curious if there's some sort of reason there is this label on the Tea Party and why.

I don't think there is anything inherently racist or bigoted about the Tea PArty Movement, it just attracts racists.

It's a label used by Democrats. It's not based on reality.

Small government isn't a racist stance.

They used to claim they wanted to "Take back their country" at the rallies.

This was intentionally misconstrued to mean take it back from a Black President.

Parroted from the prograganda media. It's an Alinsky tactic to marginalize one/those they deem dangerous to their progressive movement. The average idiot laps it up.

nice to see the real bigots show up and declare it with ignorant remarks like this. Makes them much easier to spot.

I'm not affiliated with the tea party in any way, and I'm sure there are some that are truly racist in their various forms...

but

Liberals like to feel morally superior. They wear an invisible badge of tolerance when they're one of the most intolerant people in our society.

The Tea Party movement is focused solely on fiscal policy. But our government's fiscal policies have been formed to achieve certain social policy objectives. Since changes to the fiscal policies would have effects on the social policies the Tea Party members are open to criticism for the effects the changes in fiscal policies would have on the social policy objectives of the critics.

The critics of the Tea Party movement can't win an argument when the argument is limited to fiscal issues only. Thus the opponents have to change the argument to one they think they can win.

Everyone does.

Some liberals just attempt to brand their opponents as racist to silence any criticism of their own policy. I think some republicans have done this as well, seeing the TEA party as a threat.

The TEA Party has nothing to do with race. It's based on fiscal policy.

Should have heard Harry Reids comments after Cruz's fauxbuster this afternoon.
