Michelle Obama attacks "racist" elements in Tea Party

Here are some of Michelle Obama's remarks to the NAACP.

First Lady Michelle Obama brought renewed energy to the NAACP today, delivering the keynote speech at the annual convention one day before the nation's largest civil rights group is expected to condemn what it calls racist elements in the Tea Party movement. . . .

Tea Party members have used "racial epithets," have verbally abused black members of Congress and threatened them, and protestors have engaged in "explicitly racist behavior" and "displayed signs and posters intended to degrade people of color generally and President Barack Obama specifically," according to the proposed resolution.

"We're deeply concerned about elements that are trying to move the country back, trying to reverse progress that we've made," NAACP spokeswoman Leila McDowell told ABC News. "We are asking that the law-abiding members of the Tea Party repudiate those racist elements, that they recognize the historic and present racist elements that are within the Tea Party movement." . . .

Intelligent individuals who admire and respect the truth present valid arguments with valid data to back up one's argument.

Those whom wish to con people into surrendering their power do so by relying on fear mongering and outright lies.

If, in fact, there has been racial epithets, verbal abuse of congress members, then Mrs. Obama should provide truths to support her argument, and not foster her own brand of racisim by way of untruths.
