When racism is exhibited at Tea Parties, it is promptly chased away. But if you're stupid enough to rely on liberal propaganda machines like ThinkProgress for information, you'll come to the opposite conclusion.
ThinkProgress has produced a heavily edited and flagrantly deceptive video that is designed to support a libelous fabrication. ThinkProgress introduces their disgustingly misleading video with this:
ThinkProgress has produced a short video demonstrating the vile racism that has been exhibited at some Tea Party events...TEA PARTY ACTIVIST1: He’s too black to be President.TEA PARTY ACTIVIST2: I’m a proud racist, I’m white.TEA PARTY ACTIVIST3: Afro-Leninism! Coming to you on a silver platter, Barack Hussein Obama!
TEA PARTY ACTIVIST4: Go home wetbacks!.
Now here's their disgusting video (this is the censored version, see Update II below):

I don't have additional video context for all of the clips ThinkProgress unscrupulously stitched together, but I know with certainty that "ACTIVIST2" was chased away from the tea party gathering by a persistent Tea Partier who was unwilling to tolerate a racist intruder.
Here's the video of the racist Tea Party crasher, in context (h/t YouTube user dmcindc):
"You don't represent the Tea Party, sir!"
In the comments section of the ThinkProgress post in question, one commenter (#13) pointed out that the complete video featuring "ACTIVIST2" has been featured on ThinkProgress in the past, but that comment is not readily seen, because it has been "voted down" by Think Progress (or cowardly ThinkProgress fans).
UPDATE I: "ACTIVIST4" was filmed in 2006, long before the Tea Party movement was born (h/t DMC in DC):
Video uploaded to YouTube on September 4, 2006.
Update II: ThinkProgress cuts out the "Wetback" portion of the clip (Before, After). ThinkProgress: "We regret the error..."
But there's a lot more to regret...
Update III: "ACTIVIST1" video in context. Inarticulate? Maybe. Racist or bigoted? Judge for yourself:
(Big hat tip to Conservative Generation at Left Coast Rebel)
We need to rip ThinkProgress to shreds over this indefensible attempt to defame. If you know where they got the other clips, please let me know.
Liberals are clearly getting desperate. They are the ones who tolerate and defend vile racism and other forms of criminally malignant psychopathology, but they're projecting their own disgusting tendencies onto Tea Partiers because they know the Democrats are likely to be decimated in the November elections.
The economy is a shambles, unemployment is still two points higher than their trillion dollar stimulus was supposed to allow, national debt is exploding, and the Gulf of Mexico is turning into a toxic hydrocarbon soup... it's no wonder liberals want to talk about imaginary racist boogeymen.
Left Coast Rebel: Last time I checked, if you are expelled from a group you are not usually considered part of the group.

If Libs want to investigate racially motivated violent hatred at Tea Parties, perhaps they should look into this. Bonus points for looking into this.
