The voice of Darth Vader claimed that the Tea Party had in fact slipped to the Dark Side and were racists. The Tea Party Patriots are not standing for it. In fact, they are using their ‘force’ to call James Earl Jones’ bluff.
The group’s Facebook page was explicit in decrying Jone’s comments and called him to apologize.
Today, the nation’s largest tea party organization called on actor James Earl Jones to apologize for his divisive and irresponsible comments.
“This is another example of an actor playing the politics of division and deceit,” said Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator of Tea Party Patriots. “It is time to come together as one nation to overcome the economic drag Washington politicians have imposed on all Americans.”
It seems to me that since James Earl Jones has openly declare that he was raised to be a racist, that it would be very difficult for him to fully rid himself of and his comments demonstrate that. He sounded just like Juan Williams calling the Tea Party racists, only in Williams case he had the feisty Michelle Malkin eat his lunch and demand that he name the incidents of racism or retract his comments.
Jones should do the same and in the future he should stick to the script of his movies rather than coming out and claiming the baseless charge of racism in a party that is comprised of various ethnic groups united around a common goal and that is taking America back.
