I saw a partial interview of Morgan Freeman the other day where he was being asked why he called the Tea Party a racist organization. Now, I like Morgan Freeman’s acting but how does he figure this out? When pressed he lamely mumbled something about the Tea Party wanting to cut minority programs but couldn’t give an example. Nor has anyone else and this accusation keeps coming up over and over.
I suppose if you say that the Tea Party wants to end government waste and that a lot of the most wasteful and bloated Federal programs are aimed at minorities then maybe. It seems childish though to have to call an organization racist, just because you might have to go out and get a job, quit having kids or sell your new car because they took away your free housing, welfare, food stamps and beer money.
