Tennessee Congressional Candidate Has A Dream To ‘Make America White Again

Rick Tyler, a local businessman running in the heavily Republican district, has drawn sharp criticism for a pair of inflammatory signs near Highway 411 in Polk County: One that says “Make America White Again,” and another that invokes Martin Luther King Jr. and reads “I Have a Dream” over an image of the Capitol surrounded by Confederate flags.   

It was intended to elicit the idea in people’s minds of … what ‘Make America White Again’ could possibly mean. My quick response to that is the ‘Leave It to Beaver,’ ‘Ozzie and Harriet,’ ‘Mayberry’ America that I grew up in was a better America,

Tyler said, claiming that time had no “break-ins” or “Muslim sleeper cells,” had less immigration by people of color — and was so safe you could leave your doors unlocked.

“He wants to go back to the 1950s where whites are in control and blacks ‘know their place. He’s about as racist as you can get, from what I can tell.

Topher Kersting said [running as an independent] 


WTF?! Go back to what else? Jim Crow? The “good old days” when if a black person looked sideways at a white person, they were lynched? Separate but equal? 

If you aren’t offended by this message, you are what’s wrong with this country. #Hate it!

The Democrats have failed in the public schools with the African-Americans, they abort their babies, they’ve done nothing to lift them out of poverty!

… We just showed this movie, ‘Red Tails’ across the state in Jacksonville, you know who showed up? Military families. You know what color they were? They were African-American. You know who they brought? Their kids. Finally Hollywood made a movie with patriotic African-American role models. They don’t have any.

Rick Tyler, Newt Gingrich SuperPAC chair, in one of the most blatant examples of GOP racism in recent memory. Apparently, African-American children had no role models until Red Tails. I could barely believe what I was watching.

Watch the video for yourself:

I thought Al Sharpton was going to lose his shit completely. I wouldn’t blame him.

“More people are on food stamps today because of Barack Obama.. The Democrats have failed in the public schools with the African Americans, they abort their babies. They’ve done nothing to lift them out of poverty and you know what? I hear all the time that the Democrats have these great intentions, but their policies fail. Maybe we have good intentions too, but our policies haven’t been tried. How about we just accept that we both have the right intentions for everybody to rise out of poverty? Newt talked about that before, and that maybe we should try our policies that put people back to work and not give them a handout, tell them to live in public housing, shut up, collect their check and vote for Democrat. I don’t accept that. I don’t buy this race baiting.”

I don’t even have words to address this. Al Sharpton has been elevated to BAMF status.
