    From the report cited in your reference.

    This is just some of what is said when you read the report without the biased spin of an Obama hating web site. Note, it does not say they are not racially motivated. It says they are sensitive to how non-PC such comments would be, and so avoid them.

    That's an opinion of an equally biased reporter who wants to explain away the surprise of not finding racism in the GOP. They have no statistical support for any of these statements. They just want to explain away their inability to confirm their preconceived notions.

    In other words, CTB, they're as bad as you are about whining from being a socialist in a free enterprise world.

    The Democrat Party relies on ignorance to retain power. Actually, Obama is so irrelevant that it is Pelosi and Reid who are running the show. Pelosi is filthy rich and an insane abortion advocate denied communion by an out-of-touch Catholicism. Reid, a genuine nasty person, is an old-fashioned Mormon out to undermine the USA much like Brigham Young and Joseph Smith, Jr., who wanted to be king of America. Democrats are not the kind of people who make good neighbors.

    You seem to fail to realize this is from the report that the OP used in trying to prove the Tea Party/Republicans do not use race. The article cited in the OP puts a spin on it supporting the neutrality of the Tea Party on trace. But the report they lift the information from actually shows that the Tea Party and the Republicans do use race and that some are racist. They have simply become more sophisticated in the use of language, but racist they still are and probably will remain. This will change as my generation passes from the scene.

    The article cited in the OP lifted a sentence out of context to prove its point. I suppose they figured their readers would be convinced by their article and would not check the original article. The sentence was:
    But this is a complete misrepresentation of what was said in context ... proof texting you know?

    Here is the full quote:

    The poster of the OP inadvertently proved the opposite of what he/she hoped to prove.

    Completely off topic and should be deleted from the thread.

    The topic is the Tea Party/Republicans and racism.

    A sentence was lifted out of context attempting to prove there is no racism. However, left in the paragraph, giving context it proves the opposite;

    And that doesn't change the fact that the writing in the report is nothing more than opinion, expressed by the polltakers. Nothing in any poll matters beyond the numbers. The opinions written by the pollsters are irrelevant, and are nothing more than an attempt to codify -- or in some cases, provide outright spin -- of the actual numbers, which tell the real story.

    So spare me your efforts to defend this nonsense opinion expressed by the writer. It means absolutely nothing. The numbers are what matters, and they prove that there is no racism in the Tea Party or the GOP. So take that, stuff it in your pipe, and smoke. "No spin zone" here. You can't pull that crap off, CTB. You're audience isn't stupid like your fellow socialists are.

    But it also says they could find no evidence of racism, even in private correspondance. It says that the evidence is not there to support the racism that they (the media) still believe is there. They will not be persuaded by evidence or facts, they have been told that tea parties are racist so it must be true.

    It is analogous to a policeman searching your car and not finding any drugs so he comes to the conclusion that you must be really good at hiding your drugs instead of the more logical conclusion that you don't have any drugs.

    The left needs us to be racists. Whether they have to lie about it makes no difference.

    Your analogy couldn't be more accurate.
