Lloyd Marcus Under Attack

Last week I posted a video of American Lloyd Marcus singing an anthem I agreed with wholeheartedly. He traveled on the Tea Party Bus which wound its way across America ending in Washington, D.C. on September 12th to join millions of Americans (Source: Washington D.C. Police) marching on the U.S. Capitol to see if Obama, his minions and the 111th Congress could "hear them now".

Of course, Barack Obama turned tail and ran out of town. The 111th Congress largely stuck their fingers in their ears and chanted, "La, la, la...I can't hear you." But there are millions of American energized in the efforts to restore America as a Republic and the U.S. Constitution as the rule of law. And for our troubles, the Democrats can't do anything but spout the pathetic response of "racism".

I give you Lloyd Marcus:


IN HIS OWN WORDS

The racial trashing of entertainment Lloyd Marcus
September 19, 2009

My name is Lloyd Marcus. I traveled on the Tea Party Express bus tour as an entertainer and spokesman; 16 states, 34 rallies in two weeks. Unfortunately, I was the object of vicious racial animus along the way, but not from the tea party protesters. All of the racial hatred expressed against me came from the left, from people who support President Obama.

My delete-emails box is littered with numerous messages such as this one: "You are the dumbest self-hating f****** n***** I have ever seen!" The liberal racists who verbally attacked me are outraged by the opening lines that I boldly proclaim at each tea party rally. "Hello, fellow patriots! I am NOT an African-American! I am Lloyd Marcus, AMERICAN!"

I rejected hyphenating years ago when one day I woke up and heard I was no longer black, but African-American. Any black person rejecting the new politically-correct term was called an Uncle Tom. I believe that hyphenating divides us, and I will have no part of it.

I am a singer, songwriter, entertainer and columnist using my talents to spread the message that conservatism is best for all Americans. The left's response to my independent thinking has been racist, venomous and hate-filled. With unbelievable arrogance, they vilify me for loving my country and not viewing myself as a victim of white America. As a black man, they tell me I must support President Obama regardless of his policies. I must resent white America. I must feel entitled to the earnings of others. My belief that my success -- or failure -- is totally in the hands of myself and my God is an anathema to them.

As for the claim that tea party protesters are racist, I assure you they are not. At every rally the black man whose words you are reading was showered with respect and affection for standing up for America. No, the protesters in this incredible tea party movement are not racists. They are decent, hard-working people who strongly disapprove of what President Obama is doing to the country they love. Even though skin color is a non-issue with them, the president's supporters attempt to silence them by calling them racists.

As a black American, I'm offended that the man who said he would be a post-racial president looks the other way as his supporters seek to divide us by race. But, as I said to audiences along the Tea Party Express bus tour, "I love you. Stay strong. Do not allow their calling you a racist to shut you up! Stand for America. God bless you. And God bless America!"

I find being called a racist to be absolutely ridiculous wrapped in startlingly strong irony. The left has reduced themselves to name-calling because they have no solid ground to stand on. Americans across the nation are reading the legislation they, including Obama and the 11th Congress, refuse to read. Americans across the nation have studied the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights and KNOW that they are being violated at every level. Americans across the nation understand the simple mechanics of a budget, the basic rules of which cannot be violated, and yet are watching Obama and his 111th Congress, dominated by Democrats, plunging this country into a debt that cannot be paid back in one, two or possibly three generations. Americans across the nation know the inherent and insidious dangers of socialism, which according to former Secretary of Agriculture - Ezra Taft Benson, is the physical practice of communism. I stand by the definition, regardless of what education's elitists feel it may be.

When liberals are faced with these indisputable facts they respond, not with facts, figures or historical proof, but with name-calling and all they have besides profanity is "racist".

It is laughable in the extreme. Bravo Lloyd Marcus...an American patriot.
