The NAACP has released a report which shows the connections between the Tea Party and hate groups, anti-semites and white supremacist groups. Here is the introduction:

tea party

The result of this study contravenes many of the Tea Parties’ self-invented myths, particularly their supposedly sole concentration on budget deficits, taxes and the power of the federal government, Instead, this report found Tea Party ranks to be permeated with concerns about race and national identity and other so-called social issues.

Ben Jealous, the President of the NAACP defended the report on a call with reporters:

We have no problem with the Tea Party expressing its views in the great debates in our great democracy. We do, however, have a problem when prominent Tea Party members who have direct ties to organizations like the Council of Conservative Citizens, are allowed to use Tea Party events to recruit people for those white supremacist groups. … And most importantly, we have a problem when the majority of the Tea Parties stand silent and doesn’t loudly condemn that sort of behavior.

The report also has a section on troubling Tea Partiers, including Clay Douglas, a Tea Party member from Arizona who is an Anti-New World Order conspiracy theorist. who promotes militias and antisemitism, Roan Garcia-Quintana a Tea Party member from South Carolina who is also a member of a white supremacist group and Karen Pack, a Texas Tea Party member who is linked with the Klu Klux Klan.
