Joe Biden: Tea Party Not A Racist Organization

From Jake Tapper's ABC page (via Kristinn at FreeRepublic).
“Do you think elements of the Tea Party are racist?” This Week anchor Jake Tapper asked Vice President Joe Biden in an EXCLUSIVE interview. Biden equivocated at first, but then settled on a pretty firm no.

“Well, the truth is that at least elements that were involved in some of the Tea Party folks expressed racist views,” he said.
Then, Biden went on to say:
“I don’t believe, the president doesn’t believe that the Tea Party is -- is a racist organization. I don’t believe that,” Biden said. “Very conservative. Very different views on government and a whole lot of things. But it is not a racist organization.”
Sanest thing he's probably said in his life. Even after all the attempted equivocation, Biden knew the truth--the Tea Party isn't racist. Probably because he knows in his heart that the entire allegations about racial slurs yelled at Black Congressmen was a damn lie.

Wonder how long will it be before he's forced to walk his comments back.

But notice:

"A black Congressman walking up the stairs of the Capitol..."

It's the Big Lie - the False Fact. So big and false that they believe it themselves even as they (in this case, Biden) condescendingly allow that the "racism" in the Tea Party is only on "the fringes."

Gee, thanks, Joe, for all your expertise in racism.

Joe Biden: neither clean, nor articulate, nor even particularly bright.
