Another Think Progress "Tea Pary Racist" Debunked

The selective editing and inherent dishonesty from Think Progress just keep getting worse.

At the beginning of the Think Progress video claiming that Tea Party protesters are racists is a man with his bi-racial son and black wife who claims that Barack Obama is "too black to be President."

Kind of an odd statement from the patriarch of a mixed race family, isn't it? I daresay it seems like something must have been taken out of context.

And it was!

Let Coast Rebel has the entire video clip... in context.

Barack Obama's just a bad guy. That's all I can say. He's... He's too black to be President.

And you look at the color of my wife, it's not the color of his skin that troubles me, it's not the blackness of his skin that troubles me.

It's the blackness inside... his heart.

He's a bad guy.

But not bad enough to take the proud father of a handsome bi-racial son and label him to all the world as a racist. For that you need a lower life form.

You need a Think Progress intern.

What else do you expect from a bunch of bought and paid for political hacks? They toe the Podesta line or they get fired, plain and simple.

Nothing Think Progress says can be trusted, nor could it ever, and pretending otherwise is just counter-productive.

We just have to accept that anyone who does not totally and unequivocably heart Obama is ipso facto a racist. It matters not a whit that we objected to Clinton or Carter for the same reasons, or that we have always opposed the statist leftward creep of our bureaucracy, unions and media.

As for myself, when the race card is triumphantly flung onto the table, and is supposed to immediately end the debate and force us to slink from the field, I simply ask "That all you got? That your A game, you wienie?"
