Henry Champ Doesn't Get The Tea Party

For many years, Henry Champ was the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's (CBC) man in Washington, D.C. He retired in 2008 but still occasionally writes columns for

Like most members of the liberal media he is not fond of The Tea Party. But Champ takes it to a new level:

Don't believe the nonsense that the offenders are a minority who have attached themselves to well-meaning protesters.

On this day they were clearly the majority and everyone cheered them on when they performed these miserable acts.

It's interesting that free assembly and protest now constitute "miserable acts." How dare those cretins protest Obama who knows what is best for us. Champ is basically buying into the Janeane Garofalo school of American politics. If you disagree with Obama you are therefore a racist.

Indeed, Champ goes on to compare the Tea Party protesters to crowds he had seen in the American South in the 1960s. Hmmn, could Mr. Champ tell me how many African Americans would have been invited to speak at Ku Klux Klan rallies in Selma in 1960? Somehow I don't think Champ would have witnessed this sight in the American South in the 1960s. Or this sight for that matter. Frankly, Henry Champ doesn't get The Tea Party and I suspect he never will.
