NAACP Wishing the Tea Party Dead?


Ben Jealous, president of the NAACP, is looking forward to Tea Party's demise. No ― it's actually worse than that. Apparently, Jealous is eagerly anticipating the death of the entire Tea Party demographic.

Here's your daily dose of hateful disdain, courtesy of Mr. Jealous:

"Whenever you see major progress in this country, you see massive backlash right behind it, and we are in one of those moments like the 1960s," he said during a phone interview ahead of the convention. "We are seeing massive progress and we are seeing massive backlash. The only way to deal with that type of push-back is to fight back.

"The reality is that the tea party represents a small and dying demographic in this country, but they are as empowered as they are privileged," he added.

[emphasis added]

Who is this "small and dying demographic" represented by the tea party?

CBS/NYT sets up the cherished leftist narrative:

They're white. They're older. And they're angry...

Eighteen percent of Americans identify as Tea Party supporters. The vast majority of them -- 89 percent -- are white. Just one percent is black.

They tend to skew older: Three in four are 45 years old or older, including 29 percent who are 65 plus. They are also more likely to be men (59 percent) than women (41 percent).

The angry white tea partier... may his days be few; may another take his place of leadership!

Ben Jealous is a bit more restrained and articulate than Samir Shabaz, but is his sentiment really much different?


By the way, if the "tea party demographic" represents 18 percent of the country, that's 55 million dying people.

RK - Libtards are noting that the Tea Party movement is up to 18% of America. Bonus question for your readers - what percentage of the population (that resides in the White House, Congress) is self-identified liberal?

LCR: Good question. I bet the 18% represents a very large portion of the HillBuzz and PumaPAC crowd.

For every person that is a part of the Tea party movement 2 more have similar feelings.
