Andrew Breitbart spoke before a crowd of approximately 300 Tea Partiers rallying on Independence Mall Saturday afternoon.
At the rally attended by about 300 people, mostly black and Hispanic as well as some white speakers sounded the groups’ themes of limited government and spending restraint — as well as mistrust of mainstream news organizations. Breitbart told the crowd to hold up their cameras to demonstrate that members were watching news organizations “because we don’t trust you.”
Breitbart said he thought the national principle E Pluribus Unum (Out of the Many One) had been lost in the last generation.
“We have to be one,” he said. “We can be many, we can be the sum of our parts, but we cannot abide by this dividing people into every different race and every different sexual orientation and poke and prod these people … every electoral cycle in order to get them to vote for the Democratic party. It’s cynical politics.”

Apparently, TPM is suggesting that this is a “reparations stunt.” BigFurHat at iOWNTHEWORLD went wading through some nasty bull in TPM’s comment section, and brought back some choice quotes from lily-white liberals who think conservative blacks are self-loathing race-traitors. It seems lefties are seething with anger that some minorities would deign to leave the Dem-Socialist reservation.
But we’re the racist ones.
