As if President Barack Obama can do anything right these days, yesterday, Obama made the charge at a ‘youth town hall’ that the economy is creating a ‘tribal attitude’. The town hall was held at John Hopkins University and was hosted by MTV, BET and CMT cable networks. While the president warns about a rise in racism, oddly enough, a new study by a UCLA student on the Tea Party shows that there is no unusually high amount of racism in the Tea Party. In fact, the UCLA study shows that if anything, the Tea Party is more sane and tolerant than the average American!

At the town hall, Obama complains that due to these hard economic times, racism conflict will rise. “Often times misunderstandings and antagonisms surface most strongly when economic times are tough and that’s not surprising” Obama told the audience. “When you’re out of work and you can’t buy a home or you’ve lost your home and can’t pay your bills… sometimes that organizes [people] around kind of a tribal attitude and issues of race become more prominent.”

But it seems that the only ones seeing a rise in racism are Obama and his race-bating friends in the Progressive movement and Liberal media. UCLA student, Emily Ekins surveyed signs at the recent Tea Party rally in Washington DC on September 12th. She photographed 250 signs which were made and carried by Tea Party supporters. Her analysis shows that the Tea Party members are actually less insane and less racist than the average American.

More than half of the signs dealt with limited government. Only 25% of the signs were negative directly against Obama, but mostly for policy reasons. Of those, only 5% mentioned Obama’s race or religion and only 1% questioned Obama’s citizenship. Given that past studies estimate that as many as 10% of Americans suffer from one form of mental illness or another, and contrart to recent statements by Bill Clinton that ‘50% of the nation is insane’, it would appear that Tea Party supporters are among the most sane and tolerant citizens we have in the country.

If anyone is insane, it is Obama and his pals in the Progressive movement and Liberal media. They continue to believe that the same old policies of Woodrow Wilson and FDR are good for the nation. That big government creates jobs and spurs economic growth, whereas the opposite is true. By deny these facts, Obama and his allies are the real fools.

Perhaps what Obama is most worried about when it comes to ‘tribal attitudes’ is that in 18 days, Americans will vote during the November 2010 mid-term elections. Just as we see on the hit TV show, ‘Survivor’, when the tribe has spoken, somebody gets the boot! But as far as ginning up phony claims of an increase in racial tension due to the economy, Obama stands alone. The new UCLA study on the Tea Party movement shows that Tea Party supporters are more sane and more racially tolerant than the average American.
