According to Meghan McCain, daughter of John McCain, the Tea Party is chock full of racists. Once again appearing on the View, McCain slammed the Tea Party movement, said young people are “turned off” by its “innate racism,” and attacked Sarah Palin, the washed up former vice presidential candidate who was appointed to lead the hijacked Tea Party movement by the Republicans and the corporate media. Palin has called for attacking Iran and has put her support behind Texas governor Rick Perry.
McCain criticized Tom Tancredo, who called for a literacy test for voters during the $500 admission Tea Party fest in Nashville last week. Tancredo is a dyed-in-the-wool neocon Republican and a former member of the House of Representatives from Colorado’s 6th congressional district. He not only believes in undeclared wars that violate Article One, Section Eight of the Constitution, but also suggested in 2005 that it would be OK to wipe the Muslim holy city of Mecca off the map in response to al-Qaeda.
“People who would not even spell the word vote or say it in English put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House… named Barack Hussein Obama,” Tancredo told the those gathered at the Republican Tea Party convention.
Obama’s version of socialism includes an administration replete with members from the Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg Group, and the Federal Reserve. Meghan McCain’s father was supported by the same cartel of bankers and establishment insiders during his presidential race.
Rhetoric coming from the Republican owned Tea Party “will continue to turn off young voters, and anybody who says different is smoking something,” said McCain’s daughter.
[efoods]McCain neglected to mention that a significant number of young people supported Ron Paul’s run for the presidency. Ron Paul backed the original Tea Party movement before it was hijacked by the Republicans.
On September 10, 2009, McCain went on the View to criticize actor Charlie Sheen after he issued an open letter to president Obama. “Charlie Sheen is the latest celebrity to talk about how he does not believe 9/11,” McCain told Barbara Walters. “I quoted Charlie Sheen yesterday about his experience with prostitutes, so really you’re the one I should be listening to about 9/11?… I am not going to take my political advice from Charlie Sheen.”
McCain’s comments reveal the strategy behind the Republican hijacking of the Tea Party movement. The organization initially founded by libertarians and constitutionalists can now be dismissed as a politically irrelevant clatch supported by warmongering and racist rednecks.
