Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

In some ways Americans are too polite for their own good.  For instance, I've been waiting for six years now for someone, anyone with political clout to stand up and expose the Tea Party for what it really is. But since I don't see that happening, I'll have to speak the unspeakable, even though my voice may be a bit tinny.  The Tea Party is racist.  There, I've said it.  Of course, these days, the only folks using that distressing term just so happen to be members of the Tea Party, who insist that America's first black president is a racist.  The first time I heard that accusation I was dumbfounded.  But I now see that what they actually mean is that since the man is black, his existence triggers their own obsessions with race.  If he were white, then they wouldn't feel so angry, irritable and well. . . "racist."  So it must be his fault.

Intro

You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

It would be too exhausting to list all the telling evidence of the Tea Party's obsession with getting "that black guy" out of office.  But claiming that the president of the United States spends his days doctoring a birth certificate, or that he's a radical socialist or as I mentioned above, that he's a "racist" or a Muslim terrorist" does not represent rational discourse.  Closing down the government to thwart the President's  health care program, obstructing Congress and driving the nation to the verge of default in order to make the Obama Administration fail are not the actions of patriotic Americans.  They are rather symptoms of a spiritual wound, far too deep to excise with reason or logic.

Not everyone in the Tea Party is a racist.  Some are just dupes. who have become raveled up in the seemingly libertarian tone of the movement.  But what I know and they don't is that the day (or maybe I'll give it a month) after the black man leaves office, when they drop by Tea Party headquarters, the door will be padlocked and an "office space for rent" sign will be hanging in the window. How can I be so sure?  The driving force behind their movement has nothing to do with politics or ideology. It is a movement fueled by the raw sewage of racism.  When the target of their rage leaves the national stage, their destructive energy will fade just as fast. Just wait and see.
