UCLA Study: Signs at Tea Party Not Racist
Posted by iusbvision on October 15, 2010
Wait you mean that the Democrats and the elite media lied? Of course the elite media is mostly mum on this story and I am surprised that the Washington Post carried it on their web site. Of course if the study found the opposite it would lead every headline at every elite media newspaper and network.
Graduate student Emily Eakins from UCLA took pictures of signs at the 9/12 event in D.C. Going row by row every hour and photographed every sign.
The results. Described as the ugliest messages were “Obama Bin Lyin” and “Somewhere in Kenya a Village is Missing its Idiot” which is obviously a satirical crack at Hillary Clinton’s quote “it takes a village to raise a child”; hardly controversial:
56.2 percent of signs at the 9/12 march advocated limited government or warned of declining freedom.
Ousting incumbent politicians was the theme of 28.1 percent of the signs.
26.9 percent signs expressing anger at the White House.
11.6 percent of signs directed anger at the ruling elite for betraying the public.
The new health-care law was the subject of 8.7 percent of the signs.
8.3 percent mourned the demise of the U.S. Constitution.
6.2 percent of signs were somewhat ambiguous.
Messages of cultural or religious conservatism were expressed on 5 percent of signs.
Illegal immigration was the big issue for 3.3 percent of sign-waving protesters.
1.2 percent expressed anger at the mainstream media.
“Birther” messages questioning President Obama’s citizenship accounted for 1.2 percent of signs.
Less than one percent of signs addressed generational theft.
