If that is the case, you need to take a look at this video from ABC-7 News to hear what Tea Party members say when they let their guard down at a Thursday demonstration in Pleasanton.
When being interviewed by ABC-7 News, the Tea Party protesters claimed the “debate is not about race”, but when the interviews stopped, the racism came pouring out.
A car wreck occurred on the freeway below and the driver appeared to be Latino. That sparked a round of jokes about his immigration status.
"He's looking for his papers," said a man.
Another woman lodged this complaint, "We were right behind 60 Mexicans so they could go first. Really, they needed a translator so we all had to wait. And second of all, I couldn't find one that had a driver's license or insurance or a baby seat."
You can see all these quotes in the video. So you see, they claim their protest “isn’t about race”, yet the moment they see a Latino driver on the side of the road, the racist jokes come out of the woodwork. Gee, I thought you Tea Party members were about “low taxes". Turns out the Tea Party is more of a anti-Latino, anti-Muslim, anti-anything that isn't white or Christian.
