Tea Party Values, the Civil War and Race in Raleigh, NC

by Eric Byler

 

Annabel Park recently spoke to Diane Rufino, leader of the Eastern North Carolina Tea Party, at the "Honor the Oath" rally at the State Capitol in Raleigh.
 

Diane had drawn applause during her speech when she praised North Carolina's role during the Civil War, yet, she said that Rev. Dr. William Barber is wrong to remind us of historic struggles for racial equality in order to counter the TEA Party, and address modern day injustices. "Time to move on," she said.

Diane is eager to change the perception that the TEA Party and Republican party are dominated by white men. In her interview, she explained that catch phrases like "take our country back" do not imply going back to a time before the Civil Rights movement. Instead, she argued, TEA Party members and other conservatives want to go back to a time when there were "parameters." 

"When was that?" Annabel asked. Diane's fascinating answer provides a window into the complexity and agony of TEA Party conservatives struggling to respond to demographic changes in America. [MORE]

This is a great interview of someone with a Tea Party point of view.

I have to admit, after viewing the video I was a bit taken. Most Tea Party members I encounter have a very different vernacular to their speech. She did bring me back to my early years, doors unlocked, everyone knew each other, they were comfortable times. I though have seen the change. From a time when we helped each other, got over our different ethnic differences ( West Side Story), and lived in a society where opportunity was the mantra of the well and very well off. We were schooled from age 12 to be understanding, empathetic, productive and self supporting. Part time jobs were always available for lower income, people like myself. My employers were always encouraging my work and provided traning from adults with experience. We understood and respected law even when we didn't agree. As the years pasted I severed in the military, got married, and had 2 Kids. Then things changed, around 1973. An oil shortage caused be Opec, stagnation and encomium problems. But work was good, not much in raises but you made out. In the 1980"s laws changed, tax structure was set at fixed amount with deductions only for home owners. Jobs were still available but a little harder to get. Government work seemed the safest bet so I got one. Things got better, regular raises, health coverage, pension and representation. Like the kind we as citizens have. Never thought much of unions, until then. The 1990's proved the best until 1999. I remeber hearing that congressional reps were screaming that eliminating Glass Segal would destroy the country. I figured if Clinton signed it, banking and investors could be trusted. A very big mistake. Along the way I started looking back, when I grew up homeowners lived in homes 20 to 30 tears and that developed communities. From the 1990's on people bought homes and moved to better ones every 3-5 years. By the millennium Salaries were stagnant and hong people didn't want to have kids. I could go on but I'll sum up briefly. We did this to our selves, Diane probably lived in a different part of the country but like the rest of us a system stopped working. Today, there is to mush of every man for himself, with outside interests playing it for profit. Maybe I can't stop it but like Diane I can try. The Coffee party was my breath of fresh air: so here we go.

Angela Merkel says Germany can no longer rely on America under Donald Trump

Angela Merkel says Germany can no longer rely on America under Donald Trump | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Angela Merkel has suggested Germany and Europe can no longer rely on the US under Donald Trump. Speaking at a campaign event held in a Bavarian beer tent, the German Chancellor emphasised the need for friendly relations with the US, Britain and Russia, but added: “We Europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands.” 
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Trump First leaves our poor and the rest of the world last.... As we abandon the other western countries they can no longer trust the USA. Syria counts and others count on Russia to help the leaders suppress the will of their people and that is so far Russia's strong hand... So what does Trump want from Russia?

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
I really don't get it. It appears that GOP supporters can forgive groping women that don't want to be groped, body slamming reporters that ask perfectly regular questions, slandering and outright lies and hate talk. And those very people they are forgiving will soon treat many of their supporters the same way or worse through policy that will offer the rich the world and the working person the crumbs...  if that.
