Fox News Tea Party Guest: Racism Is Over. It’s Socialism We Need To Fear!
Reported by Ellen - March 30, 2010 -
Yesterday (3/29/10), Neil Cavuto interviewed right wing pundit and tea party supporter Lisa Fritsch about the allegations of racism at tea party protests. Fritsch, an African American, announced that it didn’t matter whether or not Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, also African American, had been spit on during the tea party protest the day the House of Representatives passed the health care reform bill. What Americans really need to worry about, according to Fritsch, is the threat of socialism! With video. (H/T Matthew P)
Fritsch dismissed a video showing a protester spitting on Cleaver by saying, “The bottom line is, whether or not (Cleaver) was spit on or not really doesn’t matter. Truly, Americans no longer need to fear racists and racism in this country. That’s secondary. The real threat to the good life in America right now is socialism and everything that’s in this health care bill that is sending us down a path of destruction.”
Later, Fritsch declared, “How can it be that much racism when he’s (Obama) half black? …He’s just as white as Nancy Pelosi. How can it be racist?”
Well, I don’t know, Lisa. Why don’t you explain to us the comments we find regularly on Fox Nation such as a photo of Obama dressed as a pimp, a comparison of him to a gorilla, calling him "Buckwheat," and that's not counting all the death threats.
