article imageMeghan McCain calls the Tea Party movement innate racism

By Andrew Moran     Feb 10, 2010 in Politics
Meghan McCain, daughter of former 2008 Presidential candidate John McCain, recently sat down with "The View" and explained that the recent Tea Party movement is filled with "innate racism."
Making an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Monday, Meghan McCain, daughter of long time Republican Arizona Senator and former 2008 Presidential candidate John McCain, accused the Tea Party movement of being racist and has turned off many young people because of its racist undertones, according to CBS News
McCain is also not pleased with many statements made from Sarah Palin, who is a possible 2012 Presidential candidate and fervent Tea Party supporter, when she defended Rush Limbaugh’s use of the word “retard” and advising President Barack Obama to declare war on Iran in order to win a second term, reports the Raw Story.
However, according to Fox News, Palin called for Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel to resign due to his use of the word “retard” in a strategy session in 2009.
McCain also wasn’t pleased with former 2008 Presidential candidate Tom Tancredo’s call for the creation of a literacy test in an opening speech at a Tea Party convention last week. McCain believes Tancredo’s remarks were racist, “People who would not even spell the word vote or say it in English put a committed socialist ideologue in the White House... named Barack Hussein Obama," said the Republican Congressman.
McCain went on to describe herself as a progressive Republican and the innate racism is turning the young people off of the political movement and will continue to do so, “I'm sorry, but revolutions start with young people, not 65 year old people talking about literacy tests and people who can't say the word 'vote' in English. You should never go to war unless it’s the absolute last circumstance. We can't placate and say Democrats can say one thing and Republicans can say another thing.”
