Houston's Black Tea Party: The Tidal Wave Begins

It took a while, but the spirit of Crispus Attucks -- the first casualty of the Boston Massacre, who happened to be black -- has finally worked its way into the Tea Party: Founded by über-conservative pundit and apparent uppercase "C"  fan, Anita MonCrief, Houston's Crispus Attucks Tea Party will host its inaugural meeting Jan. 18.

The group's "primary objective is to break the cycles of dependency and decay that continue to anesthetize and hold captive too many black families and neighborhoods," according to a press release.

Co-founder and spokesman E.L. Johnson elaborated for Hair Balls: "The need that we see is quite apparent when you visit any one of the predominantly black areas -- any of Houston's wards, if you will -- ....the social programs and social justice theories and experiments have been devastating to those communities. Almost every one of them looks like a war zone."

Despite the liberal, government-program "propaganda" being "pumped" into those neighborhoods, the residents are largely conservative, Johnson says.

"So the Crispus Attucks Tea Party is an effort to provide safe harbor for the conservatives living in those areas," he says.

Speaking at the inaugural meeting at This Is It Soul Food will be MonCrief and newly elected State Rep. James Earl White. (The chapter's literature points to White as the perfect Crispus Attucks teabagger, noting that White won in an East Texas district "which was a Ku Klux Klan territory and is a predominantly white House district....Texas and America are entering a period where 'content and character are indeed more important than color.'")

MonCrief, who describes herself as an "ACORN whistleblower," will be moving to Houston from Washington, D.C., to better guide the chapter, Johnson says. He wouldn't say how many members they've rounded up so far, but since it's just getting off the ground, we assume it's going to take a little while to build. For one thing, Johnson says he hasn't had a whole lot of luck with black clergy, although he really wants them to work hand-in-hand with the new chapter.

All we know is, if the group continues to hold meetings at kick-ass restaurants like This Is It, they've got a bright future.

It is great that more people are begining to realize the failures of our social agendas of the last 50 years. The recipients of this welfare have become enslaved by it. This country and the communities effected, need to work together to truly improve the lives of all involved. The growth of the Tea Party is just a beginning. Congratulations and may God bless your activities.

I listened to Ms. Moncrief today on the Hannity show. I was so pleased to hear of this black tea party and what an articulate young lady she is. I was very impressed with her. The tea party people, I am one myself, would like to see more blacks joining hands with the tea party. It doesn't matter what color you are....it's all about truth, honor, and saving our sovereignty....saving our constitution..our country!

I listened to Ms Moncrief (a self described ex-liberal and ACORN employee) talk to Sean Hannity on the way home from work this afternoon. Wow I'm very impressed. And the facts about Acorn and the Obama administration is really amazing, but believable stuff. She is extremely well spoken and presents the facts as she uncovered them while working with ACORN. Extremely happy to see her start a "Black Tea party". She is another carrier of the thruth about the Left. I could see her running for either the Senate or the House some day soon. I'll be the first to back her and give her my vote and I'm not Black!

Being elected as a black Republican is not surprising. White people love it women black people tell them what they want to hear.

And, Just who is it they will be trying to attract????? And, the restaurant choice is questionable as well.

My guess is that they're trying to attract people with the same political agenda, but I personally LOVE the food @ the restaurant you seem to question
