The Dayton Tea Party Founder & President Rob Scott released a statement today about today’s vote from The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Convention in Kansas City claiming the Tea Party Movement has racist undertones: “The actions of the NAACP are purely false, inflammatory and outrageous. The NAACP going down this road shows their organization is but a mere political tool for the current catastrophic government policies occurring throughout the United States.
The Dayton Tea Party’s mission is one that benefits all races. The organization supports the free market, smaller government, fiscal responsibility and respect for the U.S. Constitution. We call on the NAACP to repudiate their claims that the Tea Party movement is racist or has racist undertones,” said Rob Scott, President & Founder of the Dayton Tea Party.
The NAACP resolution makes reference to an incident in March when Tea Party protesters allegedly hurled racial epithets at black lawmakers on Capitol Hill ahead of the government run health care vote. Since then, no evidence
was produced to show any racist attacks despite a reward of $100,000 being offered to prove the matter.
The Dayton Tea Party is a nonprofit corporation that is a grassroots and nonpartisan group opposed to wasteful government spending.
The Tea Party is made up of students, homemakers, working people, and professionals from all political spectrums.
