University sends email to alumni equating the tea party with the KKK
Daily Caller ^ | 12/06/2013 | Robby Soave

Posted on 12/06/2013 3:15:47 PM PST by Texas Fossil

A public university sent an email to alumni highlighting the esteemed research of one of its professors — research that notes many similarities between the old Ku Klux Klan and its modern-day equivalent, the tea party.

The University of Washington’s email to alumni asked the question four separate times: “Is The Tea Party like the Ku Klux Klan?” Christopher Parker, a UW political science professor, argues in a new book that there are major similarities. The book is titled “Change They Can’t Believe In: The Tea Party and Reactionary Politics in Contemporary America.”

“In this commentary from Professor Christopher Parker he argues that recent research shows racism is a strong indicator of Tea Party support,” said the email, which plugs Parker’s book.

My how public university employees behave.

Instead of being seats of learning, they have become seats of propaganda and misinformation.

Of course he is pimping his book of similar lies.

Liberal radicals of academia just cannot stand the fact that the world knows what they, and their Fraud-in-Chief are all about....they do not know what to do other than this crap. What useless, miserable people.

Does the school have publically elected officials?

I think its an area conservatives should be concentrating on more. I’m lucky that we have tea partier Dr Rob Steele running for a seat on the University of Michigan board of regents.

And that is one of N reasons (where N is a large number) why I no longer want any of my taxes supporting collections of pseudo intellectuals and failed administrators in any public college. You all know that this “survey” comes from one of those marshmallow - get a degree for lots of money and no study - departments.

Science, engineering, mathematics.

That’s it. These can be supported by real companies that make real products.

Anything else is putrid Obamastuff - not worth a plugged nickel.

When they tell us they are going to “fundamentally change” our country, we are “reactionary” if we object.

I’m curious- Exactly how many interviews with Tea Party members and leaders does this book involve? Or is this another one of those books that examines a subject and pronounces it’s verdict from afar?

“Change They Can’t Believe In: The Tea Party and Reactionary Politics in Contemporary America.”

Since I first became politically aware in the late 1960's, I have noticed without exception that the only people who use the word "reactionary" are dyed-in-the-wool Marxists.

Once I hear that word, I know there is no further point listening to anything that follows.

Considering the rise of the Tea Party coincided with the bailouts of the banks and auto manufacturers under GW Bush, I guess they were all prejudiced against the last white president.

Unfortunately, the world does NOT know. The Marxist have ruled education and the MSM for too many years.
How else can you explain the reelection of “The One”...the one true Commie and fraud.

It’s become as predictable as identifying the perp of a sucker-punching incident as `African-Amish’:
Like the book `Arming America’ by Bellasiles, this one is probably .000001% (arguably) factual, and 99.99999% pure, lefty, ideological BS cant.
“Academics” are free to research and publish—as long as they hew to the party line; in truth, they are propagandists.
They would extrapolate racism from the above when in fact the first premise has become conventional wisdom and a fact practically susceptible of judicial notice.

As was famously said before, what difference does it make? If you look hard enough, you can find similarities between any two organizations.

For example, there are probably a dozen similarities between the Roman Empire and the Union Pacific Railroad. By this stupid professor's logic, the Union Pacific Railroad is therefore the successor to the Roman Empire.

The UW is where I a) got my master’s degree and b) started turning away from liberalism.

Can’t say they didn’t end up giving me an education after all.

Step 1: Wipe out the RINOs in the GOP primary.

Step 2: Run the table on the ComDems in November 2014

If the nation is to survive it must happen. Then we have some serious surgery to do in Washington DC. (DC=District of Corruption)

I’ll wouldn’t be suprised if any schools in Washington State are not teaching the federal government’s constitutionally limited powers, particularly Section 8 of Article I.

We could dream. But they are saving the Amnesty Bomb until after the deadline for signing up for the primaries.

They are intent on ending the Republican Party in 2014

How do people this ignorant get professorships? He doesn’t understand the Klan or the Tea Party. I wonder if he even knows that in most states the Klan members were Democrats?

The KKK was the violent radical arm of the Democrat Party, who tortured and murderd blacks, before the democrats learned they could use them for votes, so that government could intrude in everyones lives.

The TEA party is the peaceful, country-loving, typically Republican amercians who want government to stop intruding into everyones lives.

I could see where he got the two confused...

“..the Union Pacific Railroad is therefore the successor to the Roman Empire.”

Off topic, but I got an email once talking about how once a bureaucratic rule is put in, it is VERY hard to get rid of (reference to obabamacare). The long example followed the course of history from Roman Chariot wheel base to modern-day train track width!

No, there won't. Stop blowing hot air. I've heard the same nonsense for years now from conservative. "If you cross this line, there will be war." to "Ok, you've crossed that line, but if you cross THIS line, there there will really be war" to "Now you've gone and done it. Cross THIS line and I guarantee there will be war" to the present.

Civil war should have happened in Obama's first term, if not sooner. The US is hosed.

Except for the many black leaders in the Tea Party movement.

The left are fascists truly worse than the KKK, more like Nazi’s who just realize they can’t get away with doing what the Nazi’s did just yet.
