This represents a perfect example demonstrating a progressive member of a news paper letting it fly while being absolutely what the tea party movement is all about.
If guys like Kevin Foley took the time to talk to others with different point of view, or even crawl out from beneath his desk to attend a tea party meeting he would see it has nothing to do with race, origin, religion.
It is however made up of people unlike him willing to take the system on to protect the United States Constitution, a document the current administration shreds on a daily basis.
That’s my Story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
Does Nancy Pelosi have a twin brother separated at birth?
The Marietta Daily Journal
For those of you who haven’t had the dubious pleasure of reading the goop that Democrat hack Kevin Foley of Kennesaw Georgia writes in newspaper columns and blogs at the Marietta Daily Journal, let this serve as an introduction to his typical mindless, liberal race-baiting.
In April, Kevin Foley, a self-described “Progressive” felt the need to take a swing at the Tea Party and Republican congressman Allen West in a newspaper column by explaining to the reader that “Tea partiers like West are failing because they see modern America in monochrome. The country has changed since the Constitution was written, yet tea partiers long for the days of when a man — and only a white man — could do as he pleased, however he pleased.”
Setting aside for a moment that Tea Party members come in all descriptions and colors, what Foley didn’t know (this guy should get out more) – and what he failed to even research – is that Congressman Allen West happens to be a proud black American.
While reading this little gem here, it took this humble writer a couple of minutes to stop chuckling at Progressive-Kevin-Foley-of Kennesaw-Georgia and his obvious play-the race-card, ask- questions-never style of smearing. Apparently, research is for the less gifted.
It gets better. And more insightful.
The MDJ ran a well written letter to the editor in response to Foley’s silly race-baiting from a local Tea Party leader named Jan Barton with an observation on the above that was to the point in asking someone to explain Allen West’s race to Foley (race, skin color and ethnicity are all very important to liberals).
Mrs. Barton’s letter went like this:
(Complete article below)
I am a proud member and leader of a local tea party group. I recently read an MDJ guest column written by Kevin Foley (“West plays ‘Red’ card to hide record” ) in which he attacks U.S. Rep. Allen West as a tea partyer and curiously quotes Benjamin Franklin — wildly unrelated to his diatribe and completely out of context (“We must hang together, gentlemen, else we shall most assuredly hang separately”…what?)
More from Foley in the MDJ: “Tea partyers like West are failing because they see modern America in monochrome. The country has changed since the Constitution was written, yet tea partyers long for the days of when a man — and only a white man — could do as he pleased, however he pleased.”
Race-baiting aside, I don’t think Foley realizes that West is a black American. Could somebody at the newspaper please inform him of that? Neither do I think it would matter to Foley once he gets himself going at painting concerned Americans who do not subscribe to his liberal agenda as intolerant racists. This is a timeless example of the arrogant and facts-matter-not liberal attitude.
Foley’s posted comment on the online version of the LTE gives us all yet another look into the mind of an Obama voter.
Mr or MS Barton,
“I just think you’re unused to reading well-reasoned and supported arguments…”
Then he had to comment yet again after he gathered himself . You can read both replies from Foley in full online below Jan Barton’s letter.
When Foley attempts to impress us concerning illegal immigration, it gets even more entertaining.
More education on – and for – “I wanna be famous” Kevin Foley as we find the time.
