HEADING TO THE COAST … 

|| By FITSNEWS ||  This website has waxed and waned when it comes to the Tea Party movement … which exploded on the scene in 2009 as a  to the overreach of the administration of U.S. president Barack Obama.  Six years later, though, Obama is still overreaching … and in many cases the Tea Party brand has been co-opted by the “Republican” establishment.

Case in point …

Anyway … it’s impossible to really judge the “Tea Party” because so many politicians of diverse ideological orientation have applied the label to themselves.  For example we chuckle whenever we hear people say “the Tea Party is racist” – because one of the few politicians we would regard as having governed in a manner mostly consistent with the Tea Party ideal is U.S. Sen. Tim Scott.

And he’s twice as black as Obama …

Sure we have differences with Scott on certain issues – and have criticized him harshly when we felt he deserved it – but the fact remains he’s been far more ideologically consistent than most of the GOP politicians swept to office in 2010 on the “Tea Party” wave.

Whatever we – or you- think of the “Tea Party,” though, it remains a definite (if not entirely definable) force in early-voting South Carolina.

Take this weekend’s big event in Myrtle Beach, S.C. sponsored by the S.C. Tea Party Coalition.

The group’s fifth annual “Tea Party Convention” has drawn at least four candidates who are openly flirting with 2016 presidential campaigns: Media mogul Donald Trump, neurosurgeon Ben Carson, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum and perhaps the most credible of the bunch, current U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (news of Cruz’s appearance at the event was first reported here on FITS, incidentally).

The Myrtle Beach event has also drawn several U.S. Congressmen who have been making a splash on the national stage.  Among them? Oklahoma’s Jim Bridenstine (who has been leading an effort to repeal the Sixteenth Amendment) and Texas’ Louie Gohmert (who challenged fiscally liberal U.S. Speaker John Boehner earlier this month).

Half of South Carolina’s “Republican” congressional delegation will be there – as will S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson.

In addition to all these candidates and elected officials, numerous other operatives, activists and policy analysts will show up … and of course a gaggle of local, state and national media will be reporting, opining and tweeting on the proceedings (including our very own Will Folks).

That’s right … they’re letting our founding editor out of his man cave (just this once).

The convention is kind of a big deal, in other words, sort of an early spring training game in the still percolating 2016 “First in the South” presidential primary.

While we’re still not exactly sure what to expect from this event, so far its organizers have been incredibly well-organized and accommodating.  We’ve also been promised some face time with several of the big-name speakers … so be on the lookout for a flurry of articles related to those conversations.

And yes, if you’re not already following us on Twitter … now would be a good time to do so.

“Black Irishman” in an antiquated term that refers to an Irishman with black or dark brown hair. My Irish side qualifies, apart from the (predominant) native/Indian side and the wee touch of the African, maybe. Hybrid by NDA, native by spirit. White people do not exist.

Limbaughsaphatkhunt January 15, 2015 at 9:35 pm

Of course they do…have you ever seen a Shag dance contest in Myrtle Beach? You can’t get more white than that.

Buz Martin January 15, 2015 at 10:57 pm

Yeah. But that’s hybrids who may think of themselves as white. “White” is a construct. A convenience. It was invented in the late 18th Century, in Virgina, to deal with “the Indian problem.” Decreed that all who were of darker skin were “negro” or “mullatto”, and all others were “white.” That included lighter-skinned mixed bloods. By this time, due to intermarriage that began in the 16th Century over here, virtually everybody was a hybrid, a half-breed, a mutt or a mongrel. In “white” families, the daddy sometimes had one or more Indian “country wives” downriver, and was doing the black slave women or indentured servants on the DL back home.

The degree establishing “white people” was convenient too, in that most of the ruling class of VA at the time were descendents of Pocohonatas and what’s-his-hame (it’s late, gettin’ fuzzy), and were of a lighter hue. So they got to hold on the prestige of their lineage, since Pocohonas was still revered, but be classified “white.”

This spread to the other states, particularly the Southeastern ones. It was convenient for the gubmint, because they could declare all lands East of the Mississipi free of Indians. It was convenient for the slave owners, because they got to keep their darker Indian and Indian-mixed slaves, by just counting them as Mulatto or Negro. It forced free mixed race families such as those of my ancestors here in SC to assimilate. Some did so by marrying the whitest looking blue eyed blond girls they could. Pug-ugly, didn’t matter, marry her ass and start making light-skinned babies. Otherwise, risk enslavement — or later, after Emancipation, risk being branded “colored” and being on the shit end of every stick, economically and socially.

This is all real history, it’s just that we never learned it in school.

Just because society has it in firmly fixed in the collective mind that an amazingly diverse range of lighter skin types and tones are “white” (when none but albinos’ truly are) does not mean this is reality. Oh, “consensus reality” maybe. But still bullshit.

FastEddy23 January 16, 2015 at 12:10 am

Flip is right. You are a brown eye cowboy.

FastEddy23 January 15, 2015 at 11:42 pm

A couple of thousand years ago Black Irish were dark skinned, then the Romans invaded the British Iles, bringing whiter genes, enslavement to build roads and walls, and government and taxes to pay that and for their own engrandizement

Buz Martin January 16, 2015 at 12:43 am

My Irish forebears actually arrived with the Norman Invasion. They were Christianized Jews from the Middle East who had migrated all over Europe for many generations before the invasion brought them to the Isles, where they settled in Galway, as one of the “13 Tribes.” Speaking of the Irish in America, when the Spanish arrived on the coast of SC, to be greeted by some of my ancestors in the 16th Century, they were soon to discover a large tribe of wild Irish folk, who went mostly naked and grew their dark hair down to their knees. They had thick, course beards, which they plucked out, hair by hair, with clamshell tweezers. TOUGH bastids, they wuz. This is according to Peter Martyr, who chronicled the explorations of the tribal lands in land they came to call Chicora. These were not my Irish people, though. Or were they? If we can believe this story, which has been somewhat verified by stones covered with Celtic runes and such dug up from that era, these people may possibly at some point have intermarried with the Indians and became part of the local DNA stew.

Some researchers say that the Irish tribesmen’s ancestors had originally been transported to the “New World” by Vikings,who declined to stick around for some reason. There was umpty gazillion Indians then, pre-plague, so they may have decided it was not a good place to try to conquer. Just as the way many natives in North America carry DNA from South American tribes that derived from Pacific Islanders originally, then got mixed with Mayan, then Creek and Cherokee, etc., it’s all far more complicated than was ever previously believed.

Now, on the issue of white people. Yeah, white people exist. If only because they believe they do. I never completely bought into being that, though, even though it was how I was raised. The native blood always called to me, and fascinated me. Had to claim it eventually. But I don’t hate “the white man”, because people who thought they were white were my ancestors, too. Hating your ancestors, no matter what they were or what they did, is stupid. Without them, we would not be here. Hate them, and we hate part of ourselves. Fuck that.

Buz Martin January 16, 2015 at 4:12 am

Summation: It may have taken years for one trip, but our ancestors travelled all over the damned place, and fucked like bunnies on Viagra every place they went, with whatever gave ’em a stiff one. Christian or not, the boner don’t got no church.

Buz Martin January 16, 2015 at 11:04 am

No, they pretty much gave the wild Micks a wide berth. The Indians? Oh hell yeah, them they enslaved and/or slaughtered.

Yes to that comment on the Spanish. Including the Italian dude that led a bunch of ’em. Columbus wantonly raped, tortured and murdered an ungodly number of the Tainto. The “lucky” ones only got inslaved, raped, beaten and tortured.

But mention any connection with the “Black Irish” and you get an oral history of the metaphysical and myth re: the Irish and Scottish fishermen of Ethiopian (or Phoenician) origin in the distant past being stuck in the Irish Sea, trapped there by weather and “climate change”.

FastEddy23 January 18, 2015 at 11:49 pm

That story is entirely about the race wars between the Mexican native tribes and the Spanish interlopers. The hero, Zorro, and his Indian friends trying to throw the invaders out.

Speaking as a Black Irish champion of the underdogs … (Whenever I’m in Mexico …)

Buz Martin January 19, 2015 at 3:02 am

Yes, that’s exactly what Zorro was all about. Which made the Disney version of the story an interesting anomaly for its time. It went against the grain of the “cowboys and Indians” TV and movie fare of that era, in rooting for the poor, indigenous people over the conquerors. But then, it was another country. Disney had already established that Mexico was evil, through the (not entirely honest and accurate) story of Davey Crockett at the Alamo. Besides which, nobody paid much attention to such aspects of adventure stories. Another studio had made a hit of Robin Hood, and Zorro (which in an earlier serial form from different producers had influenced the creation of Batman) and the adventures of Don Diego hit many of the same notes. I loved that series, which has held up much better than Davey Crockett, in my opinion.

FastEddy23 January 19, 2015 at 2:16 pm

Very good! You are moving up in our eyes. The sad truth is that all of the American Native Tribes were treated very badly, but the Spanish Conquestidors and the Spanish Church were the most evil to the core. The best guess from historians who are not PC, the Spanish invaders of North and South America killed by sword, gun and disease about 90%, a very real genocide, a decimation of the indigenous population.

Lest we never forget: Speedy Gonzales!

Buz Martin January 19, 2015 at 5:14 pm

In all seriousness Colonel – you might enjoy this story. So when I was finishing grad school at USC I had to test out in a language. I grew up speaking French as a little kid because I stayed with my French grand parents during the day. So I go sign up to take the test. Professor is like, you’ll never pass it, you should take the $400 class. I was like “Well, I’ll take the test, if I fail I’ll take your class.” Sign up with the secretary and I’m walking out the door and she says “Don’t forget your reference materials.” I said “what?” She says “Yeah, you know, dictionary, verb book.” So I go home, and my roommate had spent years in boarding schools in France. So I spent some evenings translating comic books. I go to take this test, they give me a 300 word article from Time in French. Takes all of 15 minutes to translate. Weeks go by, I don’t get any word so I go to Professor. “Did I pass?” “Yes, goodbye.” Never heard from him again.

That isn’t some joke, either. Dead serious. Everything is overreach to these guys. These are the people who throughout history would bitch and moan anytime gubmint did anything new, different, or hell, even shit it has done since its inception.

These guys never consider the cost of not fixing shit. Externalities don’t real, only Free Market feels. It is why so many people from other first world countries are flabbergasted at what Murikans put up with. Read a thread about Obama suggesting mandated sick leave, European posters were amazed we don’t have this, absolutely shocked. Same with posts where Americans discuss medical costs, or unemployment rights, or college tuition, or, well, just about anything. We must look to them like China looks to us.

Careful, suggesting an improvement is dangerous overreach, creeping socialism, and freedom-hating fascist statism if you even so much as think government should have any involvement. Red scare! The pinkos are coming! Taxation is theft! Bootstraps! Benghazi!

So, you have seen the light! … Me? I can easily govern myself without any help from the “progressive” taxsuckers.

How about a cultural revolution? The latest one in China is almost totally anti-communist … and it worked.

So, let the purges begin!

… but the Chinese Freedom Marchers got exactly what the were wanting: a complete and total change of local government, back to a more free market and open society with freedom of speech without fear of arrest or persecution … Them Beijing commies are now “hands off” of Hong Kong.

Everything is an overreach…unless it is a reach around.

Given that they average age is around 70, everything is overreach and all gov is bad – except for proposals to raise social security payments.

Astro turfed movement planned a decade ago co-opted by establishment goons. Doesn’t really matter how you paint it, just a bunch of gullible nuts who think they are more important than they really are.

Describes a ton of voters in SC though.

Says the guy who invokes “Hitler” on an hourly basis. This TBag event is the perfect time to get that “blog” started again. U can give the attendees another lame excuse as to why you took a break from it. If not the convention, your first article could be to register your horror that Carey Rich is now on 107.5

Louis Gohmert has wormed his way back into Boehner’s good graces and was just named chairman of an oversight subcommittee.

At this very moment Boehner’s staff is probably writing the speech that Gohmert will give at the South Carolina convention.

which exploded on the scene in 2009 as a to the overreach of the administration of U.S. president Barack Obama. No! It exploded on the scene in 2009 in February, before Obama did anything. It was because his skin was bold and dark, like these words.

The Tea Party is the heart and soul of what used to be the Republican Party. The people who work hard and believe others should as well. We believe in honesty, decency and freedom. These attributes have been decried as racist, homophobic, and anti every screwball idea that the left can dream up. We respect each human being for his or her character not color. We respect the flag, the Constitution, as well as our military both past and present. Right is still right and wrong is still wrong to the Tea Party, Bold colors with very few pastels . I like to call myself a TeaPartyRepublicanRightWingNut.
