MTP Village President David DeGroot self-identifies as Tea Party, so should it be a concern to MTP Residents that a potentially racially motivated incident was recorded at Pudgy's Pub just a short distance from Village Hall? Not to mention a former MTP Village Administrator, who shall remain unnamed, having been involved in numerous lawsuits as a Defendant in what appear to be racially motivated hate crimes. What's going on in MTP?
‘The Longer You are in the Tea Party, the More Racist You Become’
"Zeskind said the goals of the session included discussing the structure and strategies of the Tea Party, how to defeat it, and the relationship of the Tea Party to racism. He drew multiple comparisons between the Tea Party and White Nationalists and highlighted a study that shows Tea Party members are racist.
“There’s been a recent academic study, and I say academic because people here are, most of you are academic something-or-the-others, and there has been a longitudinal study that finds the longer you are in the Tea Party, the more racist you become,” he told the group.
Soon after, an attendee asked, “In your judgment would you say the Tea Party is a ‘hate group’?” Zeskind said that he doesn’t use the term, but argued the group is racist".
