Some questioned the motives of Tea Party protestors during a Tax Day rally in Paris, Texas.
Paris, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – Some in Paris are questioning whether a Tea Party protest in the town on Tax Day was really just about tax issues and government spending, as many in the movement have proclaimed. One party protester displayed a sign stating, “Diversity Killed 13 in Fort Hood” while other signs included writings such as, “Obama World: Tough on Capitalists Soft on Terrorists,” and “Liberal Logic: Terrorists Have Rights Christians Don’t.” The signs along with statements made by speakers at the event, which included assertions that the president was trying to take the words “In God We Trust” off of the dollar bill made some question the motives of those who attended the rally.
A spectator at the event, who requested they remain anonymous, commented to Wired PR News, “they just feel like they’re entitled.” Another white spectator remarked about the crowd, which included only one black attendee, “This may as well be a KKK rally. They’re not worried about taxes, they just hate everybody else. They hate blacks, they hate gays in the military, they just hate.”
In attendance was also Bill Harris, the city’s assistant district attorney, who along with other officials, such as Lamar County Judge Chuck Superville, whose decision to send a black 14 year-old to TYC for up to seven years for allegedly shoving a school hall monitor, while giving a white teen who committed a more serious offense probation, gained national media attention, served as speakers in past Tea Party rallies.
