Larry Elder Fisks the Tea Party Critics

Larry Elder has a superb rejoinder to those who accuse Tea Partiers of racism.
An MSNBC reporter at another Tea Party rally actually asked a black man whether he "felt uncomfortable." "No," he laughed. "No, these are my people - Americans."
...
I once appeared on a television show where a black pundit accused former President Ronald Reagan of racism. When I asked for proof, he said that Reagan "was uncomfortable around black people." I replied, "I'm uncomfortable around you. What does that make me?"
I guess that doesn't count 'cause, don't you know, Larry Elder, Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Clarence Thomas, and thousands of unknown men of African ancestry are just so many Uncle Toms.

Progressives never let blazingly obvious facts get in the way of a good smear.

I like the way he has decent Libertarian attitudes and also that he seems good on the issues that matter, like security, being pro-business and socially tolerant.

I follow US politics from afar but with a strong interest and I find him a likeable character.
