Dick Armey Defends Tea Party From Charges of Racism, Citing Group’s Obvious Diversity

Oh yes he did. Though he did add: “depend[ing] on your definition of diversity.”

He’s not the racist. PEOPLE OF COLOR ARE THE RACISTS. Against… themselves. That’s his argument. To wit:

“And I would say if you would spend any time talking to any person from what the establishment calls the ‘minority identification,’ the difficulties, the harassment, the intolerance, the abuse that they suffer comes from within their own community — if for example you’re a black person coming to our rally — your own relatives, your own family.”

…””The first thing you ought to do is marvel that anybody of color dares to have the courage to show up in the company of this grassroots movement.”

Truer words have never been spoken, Dick.
