Ignorance And Hate On Parade At Donald Trump/Ted Cruz Tea Party Rally (VIDEO)

The Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) attended Wednesday’s Tea Party rally in Washington DC, which was sponsored by right-wing presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. As you might expect, the crowd was dominated by racists, religious bigots and really dumb people.

The rally, a typical right-wing attention-getting temper tantrum of the same kind that we’ve seen regularly over the past six years, featured more than 50 conservative personalities. Apart from Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, half-term governor and losing vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, and conservative hate radio host Mark Levin were both on scene to loudly and stupidly criticize the president. No surprise there.

The subject of the rally was the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), otherwise known as the “Iran Deal.” The purpose of the rally, as usual, was to spread misinformation and work up the already unstable right-wing voting block, by serving up plenty of fear and hatemongering.

Representatives of CAIR used the event to survey the level of Islamophobia that characterizes the Tea Party. The results of their survey aren’t at all surprising.

Nearly every person interviewed claimed that President Obama is a Muslim, that he hates Israel, that he’s “anti-American,” even that “he lived in Kenya with his father near Muslims.”

When asked if they had any advice for American-Muslims, most said “Go home.”

One man, wearing an Oath Keepers uniform, said he works with Muslims, and he has Muslim customers. He said he doesn’t hate Muslims. At the same time, the message he said that he wants to send to the American-Muslim community is:

“Islam and Christianity cannot go together. There’s absolutely no way we can live together.”

Another man offered this advice:

“Just uh, become one of us.”

Not to be outdone by Sarah Palin, who recently said that immigrants should learn to “speak American,” one woman advised American-Muslims to:

“Just embrace Americanism.”

This is the same hate and ignorance we have seen from the Tea Party time and time again.

Conservative personalities like Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin, just to name a few, work hard to keep their supporters ignorant. They also work hard to keep emotions like fear and hate at extreme levels. The reason for that is simple. When you are controlled by very strong emotions, like fear and hate, your ability to think rationally and evaluate critically is seriously diminished.

By keeping them dumb and keeping them emotionally worked up over the threat of the “other guy” the right can get their base to vote against their own interests every single time.
