Skip to comments.University sends email to alumni equating the tea party with the KKK
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 Washingtons 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 Cant 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 Parkers book.

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.
More a shade of Blood Commie Red.
Not sure. I have no direct knowledge of the university.
When they tell us they are going to “fundamentally change” our country, we are “reactionary” if we object.
Even hard science fields have been infiltrated with it. Like climate science etc.
We’ve got to stop retreating from all of it.
Red Diaper Dopers.
Another D-bagger egghead. Surprise, surprise. All the requests I receive from the University of Iowa for dough go straight to the shredder.
Hiding behind cloaks of tenure.. termites eating away at the very foundation of this republic.. well. what’s left of it.
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?
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.
tax funded institution no doubt
I hope alumni don’t send them money
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.
“the world knows what they, and their Fraud-in-Chief are all about.”
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.
Professor Parker, could you tell me why the leftists line the intelligencia up against the wall when they take over? Think Stalin, Mao, Castro, Chavez
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.
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.
I don’t trust anyone who poses with his hand under his chin.
Exactly. They cannot believe that it is their agenda that we oppose since they see themselves as saviors.
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?
Jake Locker feels right at home in conservative Tennessee.
Lies do not bother ComDems, it is part of their method.
But it indicates his contemplative nature.
There will be a hot war before that happens.
If that is what they really want, they had best be careful what they wish for.
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...
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!
One big difference: the Klu Klux Klan was the militia arm of the Democratic Party.
standard gauge. But I should have known - the email is just a fictional story after searching about it just now!
Yup. No further explanation necessary.
Another racist Mother Humper.
Huck the Fuskies.
STUPID WHITE PEOPLE,
IF YOU DON’T KNOW THAT YOU ARE THE “TARGET!”
YOU ARE IN FACT AND INDEED STUPID WHITE PEOPLE, AND YOU NEED TO BE STREET CLEANED.
I wear BLACK BOOTS WITH WHITE SHOE TIES.
Civil war should have happened in Obama's first term, if not sooner. The US is hosed.
I want to ask a question. I hear pundits, media, educates . all. They disparage the Tea Party name calling,.. I never hear an enumeration of what the Tea Party members have done to deserve this attachment. Could anyone enlighten me?
Can you get more reactionary than longing for an emperor/ strongman who “camst among us?” Or is that so primitive a trophism that it predates civilization altogether?
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.
