I do not disagree. There are obnoxious and racist members in every political demographic.

The entire teaparty did that? I think you know better than that. Within any group there can be radicals but it is typical of the left to demonize the entire group for the words of one or two. I go by their mission statement and what they stand for not by what a few stupid infiltrators say.

Post a link where many teapartiers made racist statements towards Obama and not from some biased leftist site either. I'll wait.

Let me give you an example of this by the Hispanics who marched in our streets for illegal immigration. There were Hispanics who carried signs that said "whites are here illegally and they should go back to Europe" or other nasty signs about white Americans. Some of them claimed their land was stolen and stomped on the U.S. flag. Should I assume that these reconquistas represented the views of the entire pro-illegal movement? I don't recall anyone from within their group appologizing for that behavior or disagreeing with them publicly. See how that works? Pot, kettle, black.

If anyone plays the victim card it is those on the left. Poor me, poor me. It's a so-called war on women, war on gays, war on minorities, war on the poor, war on illegals, etc. The list goes on and on.

Actually those hispanics saying that would be correct if they are from mexico because WE DID steal land from mexico and not only did we steal land from them we killed a lot of them as well. Also we stole land and killed native americans as well.

Not surprisingly, the tea partier who hates Hispanics also made racist statements about Obama.
