White Supremacist Group Distances Itself from Tea Party
Calling recent activities by the Tea Party disgusting, the White People’s Brotherhood released a press statement today announcing that it was no longer aligning itself with the Tea Party or any of its candidates, “We have grown increasingly disturbed by the actions of followers of the Tea Party movement. Our group cannot afford to have its name linked to extremists or the actions of a radical fringe. This is not why we began supporting Tea Party candidates. We might be white supremacists, but there are lines even we won’t cross. After the events of last night, I couldn’t even look my children in the eye when I gave them the white power salute this morning,” said White People’s Brotherhood Chancellor Ray Jordan.
Calling recent violence the actions of a few misguided extremists, Jordan never the less said the following incidents has left the organization with no choice, but to renounce the Tea Party:
- The videotaped headstomping of a MoveOn.Org activist last night by Rand Paul’s Bourbon County Coordinator Tim Profitt
- The unlawful handcuffing and restraint of a blogger by Joe Miller’s private unlicensed security guards in Alaska
- Sharron Angle’s repeated calls for violent overthrow of the nation’s government if not elected
“I saw that young white woman get her head stopped by that Rand Paul volunteer and I thought, is this what white power is all about? Is this what we’ve come to. How do I explain it to my daughter?” said Frank Dorman the WPB member who had started a movemement among the membership to ask that campaign contributions be returned and support be withdrawn from the more extremist tea party candidates.
“We still share a lot of the same goals,” said Jordan, “the phrase Obamanation–that was ours. It’s just hard enough getting people to listen when we explain white power, we don’t need this [Expletive Deleted] too. I’ll tell you, the Tea Party was trying to highjack our movement.”
The White People’s Brotherhood is a rather small organization, but they may just be the canary in the coal mine for candidates like Rand Paul who have been counting on larger groups like Stormfront for donations and manpower this election season. If bigger white supremacist groups follow the WPB’s lead, it may be a rough ending to what had seemed like a great election for the GOP and its Tea Party candidates.
