Marc Lamont Hill uses picture of known ACORN agitator as “proof” Tea Party is “racist”
Posted by iusbvision on September 27, 2010
Marc Lamont Hill is a far left academic who told Bill O’Reilly that he would “prove” that the Tea Party is “racist”. O’Reilly tore Hill’s weak case to shreds. I noticed that Hill used this picture which is most prominently featured on THIS very web log as a picture of an ACORN agitator. It is highly unlikely that Hill saw this picture without seeing on Google the blogs that outed the joker pictured below as an ACORN agitator.
For those who saw the segment on O’Reilly, please examine the Real Clear Politics analysis of the “survey” that was done by a radicalized academic named Chris Parker who of course took his “findings” to Salon.com. [Editor's Note - this is not the first time that Salon.com posted completely manufactured racism allegations - see this video HERE] O’Reilly was correct that Parker’s work was not scientific. Parker’s “survey” did not have a neutral control to compare the “pro Tea Party” vs “anti Tea Party” test groups to. So Hill’s claim that Parker’s work as scientific is nonsense. Without a neutral control this work would not be excepted as an 8th grade science fair project….and Hill is a professor! Hill has obviously forgotten the basic scientific method taught in every grade school science class. When compared to a large group as a control such as “all Americans” or “all whites” people who support the Tea Party have views that are right in line with those large groups. According to the “survey” only 49% of Tea Party supporters considered “whites” as “hard working”… so are they bigoted against whites as well?
Now check this out:
On “trustworthy,” the gap is smaller in the pro-Tea Party group (41% vs. 49%) than in the anti-Tea Party group (57% vs. 72%). One could write headlines about the “racial paranoia” of white liberals who consider blacks less trustworthy than whites! - It is also worth noting that, as in many other surveys, Asian-Americans in the UW poll are rated much more positively than whites. [IUSB Vision Editor asks...Ok so where is the racism there...]
Tea Party members are average Americans, 41% are Democrats, independents.
A new Gallup Poll out this morning of 1,033 finds nothing fringe about self-proclaimed Tea Party adherents; they are slightly more likely to be employed, male and definitely more conservative. But otherwise Gallup’s Lydia Saad writes, “their age, educational background, employment status, and race — Tea Partiers are quite representative of the public at large.”
Justin Graber has a nice post about elite media created Tea Party myths HERE.
The Daily Caller has a series of stories where a cabal of elite media journalists conspired using an internet message board to accuse Republicans of being racist – HERE.
ACORN agitators frequently are bused to events to agitate or put on “staged” phony “grass roots” protests (click the link immediately above for details). Of course far left blogs promised that ACORN and other agitators would be showing up to agitate, hold racist signs, etc. Just as the agitator from the Jack Conway campaign is doing in this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4bpgnkNN7Q.
Democrats lie about protestors being paid fakes is starting to crack Heh remember when Pelosi and company said that yea Party people were paid fakes? They stopped saying that after the big rallies at DC.
