Lloyd Marcus on Racism
For anyone not familiar with Lloyd Marcus, he is a black singer and songwriter, and just happens to be a staunch Conservative. He is also a very well-thought writer and contributor to American Thinker. Mr. Marcus performed as part of the Tea Party Express en route the 9/12 Taxpayer’s March on Washington. Marcus has an article at today’s A/T regarding the hateful, racist commentary directed as him by those on the left that accuse of him of playing “house”, and other vitriol.
I experienced vicious racial verbal attacks, not from the tea party protesters. The racial hate expressed against me all came from the left, people who support President Obama’s radial[sic] socialist agenda.
Unfortunately, my deleted email box is littered with numerous messages expressing the following:“You are the dumbest self hating f****** n***** I have ever seen!”These racists are outraged by my opening lines I boldly proclaimed at each rally. “Hello my fellow patriots! I am NOT an African-American! I am Lloyd Marcus, AMERCIAN[sic]!”
The man is a true Patriot.
We made our way through the crowd to the bed of a pick up truck. National radio talk show host Mark Williams, blue star mom Deborah Johns, singer Diana Nagy, the Rivoli Revue (Ron and Kay) and I climbed on board. Someone handed Mark a bull horn which he used to encourage the extremely enthusiastic crowd. We said the Pledge of Allegiance and Diana lead in the singing of “God Bless America”. Many in the crowd were sobbing. Then they showered us with thanks, hugs, bottled water, bags of shacks and homemade treats. I thought, “How many angry racist mobs bake and bring brownies and overwhelm a black guy with affection and hugs?”Once back on the bus, our team struggled to hold back tears. We felt humbled, honored and blessed. Though extremely well received at each rally, this “whistle stop” drove home the passion, love of country, and importance of our mission to preserve and Take Back America!
The Tea Party protesters are hard working decent people who love their country and want us all united as Americans. I am highly offended that this evil administration seeks to divide us, not just by race, but also by class envy. As I said to many of the audiences along the Tea Party Express bus tour, “I love you. Stay strong. Do not allow their calling you a racist to shut you up! Stand up for America. God bless you. And God bless America!”
Anyone who thinks racism and hate are a Conservative creation should read his article. [Not to mention research the history of the Republican party! It certainly wasn’t the Democrats or “progressives” operating the Underground Railroad or fighting for equality. Those who have found race as a convenient excuse to “level the playing field” by making race an issue are those who have ascribed to the Progressive dogma that somehow a person born of a darker skin color is somehow inferior and discriminated against. -Ed.]
