Shameless Self-Promotion: Chauncey DeVega on Ring of Fire Radio Discussing Tea Party Racism

I did this interview with Mike P of Ring of Fire a month or so ago and the video is now online. This went pretty well to my ears. But as I joke, I need to institute a quota on my use of "folks" and "connecting the dots." As always thoughts and suggestions are always welcome.

Right on, Mr. Devega. (And shameless self promotion is the American way, so have at it!)

Keep up the fight. We'll do the same here in North Carolina. There are still a few of us screaming in the hurricane of ignorance.

Thanks for enabling me. Be careful with what you may have created!

Oh so true. Race is the classic misdirection play of American politics and it's been working for three centuries.

@Frank. When does a misdirection because THE play? I almost made the sin of drawing the parallel with the great Vince Lombardi but I would never want to slander his name.

Frank said...

The analogy I made was that the right fakes populism up the middle and then makes an end run around the racism end.

Same like Pitchfork Ben Tilman.

It's the most common play in their playbook.
