Althouse: "Are tea parties racist?"

Althouse: "Are tea parties racist?"

"Welch attended a rally:

But if there was anything “overwhelming” about the protest it was the percentage—which I would place well above 90—of signage and conversation specifically referring to government spending, economic policy, and creeping federal interference into various areas of life.

I saw nothing about affirmative action, nothing about welfare, nothing about illegal immigration, almost nothing about hot-button social conservative issues, and very little on foreign policy.

If race played a central role, 100,000 people did a good job of hiding it."
