Default Dr. Donald May, black minister speaks at Lubbock, TX Tea party

The speech below was delivered at a Tea Party in Lubbock , Tx . It is a great speech
and one that every freedom loving citizen should read.

Sent: Mon, Jul 13, 2009 6:31 am
Subject: TEA PARTY

At the TEA PARTY, a black man, Dr. Donald May, delivered this message from
the courthouse steps in Lubbock TX . He electrified the audience like I
haven't seen in a long time. His delivery was masterful. I am sorry you
could not see him in action. Anyway, I thought you might enjoy his words.
The news media was there, but not one word of this man's appearance ever
appeared on TV or in print, even though he completely dominated the scene.

This is A Time For Courage April 15, 2009 - 11:49 am

Ladies and gentlemen, This is a Time For Courage.
We are gathered here today on the Plains of West Texas in common purpose. We
are here to remind our government that this is our country. We the People
are still in charge, and our government is still our servant and not our
master.
Our Nation's founding document is The Declaration of Independence. It tells
us that our rights come from God and not from.....Mod cut-please do not post entire script from links

Here is the link for all those who would like to see this speech in it's entirety!

The 'socialist' bailout was Bush's doing. So he must be talking about healthcare and you'll find few Canadian or Europeans calling gov't healthcare a mistake.

Wow. A black man agreeing with right wing Republicans is so special that it demands it's own thread.

So you get a misguided black man that makes the following incorrect statements:

Our Nation's founding document is The Declaration of Independence. It tells
us that our rights come from God and not from a small group of Elite men and
women.


Our Constitution was
written for ordinary Americans like you and me.

Our President has complained that our Constitution gives ordinary people too
much protection.

He has ridiculed us for the high value we place on our
Bibles,our personal property, and our Liberty .

He tells us we do
not deserve to keep the money we have earned.

..by a Radical President and his eager accomplices.
What has taken generations to build is systematically destroyed and replaced
with the same Socialist Evil that brought poverty, destruction, and despair
to untold hundreds of millions..

Our European and Canadian friends beg us to not make the same Socialist
mistakes they did..

then you put him front and center because he's black and expect what..?

He's spewing the same incorrect inflamatory ignorance as any other white "patriot" and deserves the same amount of attention...none!

Maybe May is educated enough to know the government should have to promise blacks, whites, Hispanics, etc anything special.
