Chris Rock Says Tea Party Is "Racist".

Here we go again. Another Hollywood "elite" letting people know what they think and because they think it and have said it, it must be true. bullshit. I'd be nice if for once most of these guys would keep their mouth shut. If I said something like that, in a place of work or anything, I'd be fired or sued because of the statement or because it offended someone. But with Hollywood, they say whatever they want, rarely any consequences to their careers and if they get in trouble with the law, slap on the wrist.

Politico: In the March issue of Esquire, comedian Chris Rock takes a swing at the tea party.

Rock is interviewed by writer Scott Raab.

"Like many nice Caucasians, I cried the night Barack Obama was elected," said Raab. "It was one of the high points in American history. And all that’s happened since the election is just a sh—storm of hatred. You want to weigh in on that?"

"I actually like it, in the sense that—you got kids?" asked Rock. "Kids always act up the most before they go to sleep. And when I see the Tea Party and all this stuff, it actually feels like racism’s almost over. Because this is the last—this is the act up before the sleep. They’re going crazy. They’re insane. You want to get rid of them—and the next thing you know, they’re f—-ing knocked out. And that’s what’s going on in the country right now."

The issue hits newsstands on Feb. 22.

As always, folks like Raab who forward the tea-parties are “racist and hateful” talking point wouldn’t’ have “cried” if Allen West or Herman Cain were elected POTUS in 2008.

And as for racism, I volunteered on reservations for years in Arizona and I’ll bet the good folks I worked with wouldn’t be too happy with his big ass racist Chief Wahoo tattoo. You know, the mascot that is opposed by the US Commission on Civil Rights, all Native Americans AND the NAACP.

So….see, Scott Raab is a walking, talking racist himself.
