I am exhausted. I returned home after performing at tea parties in 42
cities from Searchlight, NV to Washington DC in 19 days while on Tea
Party Express III tour. I'm black conservative singer/songwriter,
entertainer, author and spokesperson Lloyd Marcus.
I wish to share with you how the liberal mainstream media has dealt with my participation on the Tea Party Express III tour.
Liberal mainstream media all but call me an Uncle Tom. Their reports imply that I am a token black too stupid to
realize I am being used by the tea party movement. In typical liberal
mainstream media arrogance, they are totally blind to the blatant
racism of their reporting.
Because I do not fit the liberal mainstream media's "all blacks must vote Democrat and believe America is
racist and unjust" template, I must be an idiot. As a matter of
fact, because I am a black man who loves his country and proclaims
America is the greatest land of opportunity on the planet for all who
choose to go for it, much of liberal media considers me dangerous and
even wishes me harm.
The liberal mainstream media is relentless in their quest to portray the tea
party patriots as racist. And yet, I have performed my song,
"American Tea Party Anthem" at over 150 tea parties, been
treated like a rock star and have even seen signs which read, "Lloyd
Marcus for President!" Not one tea party attendee has ever
called me the N-word.
Meanwhile, a Google search will reveal numerous liberal websites and blogs which freely and excessively call
me an f-ing stupid N-word. The reason for their over-the-top anger
and outrage against me, I express love for my country and refuse to
be a hyphenated American.
The same liberals who accuse white conservative Republicans of being mean-spirited, racist and
intolerant are the hate-filled black and white Democrats who use the
N-word every other word when writing about me and have even threaten
me with physical harm.
After my performance at a tea party in Traverse City, Michigan, a white reporter approached me for an
interview. The mostly white upbeat audience loved me and my patriotic
performance. Smiles were everywhere. With a stone face, the snooty
female reporter asked me a series of annoying questions straight out
of the liberal play book.
But, what really got my blood boiling was when she asked me the following question with the trademark liberal
condescending edge, "Mr. Marcus
don't you think by calling yourself an unhyphenated American you are
encouraging white people to feel comfortable with their racism?"
I wanted to say, "Lady, what the heck are you talking about? You are obviously one miserable,
bitter and unhappy human being. Get away from me".
Instead, I replied, "With all
due respect, I strongly disagree".
I turned and walked away from her abruptly ending the interview.
Perhaps, I should have stayed and argued my point of view with her. But, I have lost patience with arrogant
liberal reporters who think they are so much smarter than us. This
negative-spirited reporter had decided the spin of her story before
interviewing me. My answers to her questions would not have made a
At our Tea Party Express III tour rally in Buffalo NY. four TV channels covering the rally had cameras in front
of the stage. In the finale of each rally, we sing "God
Bless The USA". Emotions were
high in Buffalo as the audience waved U.S. flags, sang along, and
many wept. All four camera techs had looks on their faces as if they
were vampires who had just been shown a cross. They were not happy
campers. What is with these folks in the media? Why such disdain for
At the April 15thTea Party in Washington DC, A reporter for Ebony,
a prominent national black magazine approached me for an interview
after my performance. The reporter asked me the same two questions
every other reporter has asked. Are the tea parties racist? Why are
blacks not attending?
Without going into great detail in this article, I explained to the reporter the tea party movement is not
about race, but about stopping an out of control administration from
pushing our country towards socialism.
Frustratingly, the Ebony magazine reporter replied, "So, why do you hate Barack Obama?" Then,
outrageously his asked me again, "Are these rallies racist?"
It was as if he did not hear a word I said.
The liberal mainstream media obviously has an agenda and a paradigm to maintain. They say the tea party movement
is racist and the facts will not change their reporting.
At the Traverse City, Michigan rally on the Tea Party Express III tour, a white woman approached me in a
wheelchair. Extremely excited she said, "Oh
my gosh, it's Lloyd Marcus. May I have a picture with you? Thank you
so much for all you are doing for our country. I love you!"
After a picture and hugs, I chatted with other fans.
Later with tears in his eyes, Don, a Tea Party Express staff member told me more about the woman in the
wheelchair. The woman's daughter told Don her mom was dying. The
daughter said her mom told her, "All she wanted to do before
dying was to meet Lloyd Marcus".
Wow! I was blown away and humbled. Then, I became extremely angry at the liberal mainstream media's and
Democrats' viscous shameful attempts to portray the tea party
patriots as racist.
Just the other day, after my performance at a tea party in St Augustine, FL, an elderly white veteran thanked me
and broke down in tears for our country. We embraced for several
The liberal mainstream media and democrats are attempting to racially divide and conquer our country. They are
evil. As long as God gives me strength I will continue to defend my
fellow patriots who are white and fight to take back America.
