We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don't cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!
In fact we held a big meeting and took a vote in Kansas City this week. We voted to condemn a political revival of that old abolitionist spirit called the 'tea party movement'.
The tea party position to "end the bailouts" for example is just silly. Bailouts are just big money welfare and isn't that what we want all Coloreds to strive for? What kind of racist would want to end big money welfare? What they need to do is start handing the bail outs directly to us coloreds! Of course, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People is the only responsible party that should be granted the right to disperse the funds.
And the ridiculous idea of "reduce[ing] the size and intrusiveness of government." What kind of massa would ever not want to control my life? As Coloreds we must have somebody care for us otherwise we would be on our own, have to think for ourselves and make decisions!
The racist tea parties also demand that the government "stop the out of control spending." Again, they directly target coloreds. That means we Coloreds would have to compete for jobs like everybody else and that is just not right.
Perhaps the most racist point of all in the tea parties is their demand that government "stop raising our taxes." That is outrageous! How will we coloreds ever get a wide screen TV in every room if non-coloreds get to keep what they earn? Totally racist! The tea party expects coloreds to be productive members of society?
Mr. Lincoln, you were the greatest racist ever. We had a great gig. Three squares, room and board, all our decisions made by the massa in the house. Please repeal the 13th and 14th Amendments and let us get back to where we belong.

Comment: Here we see a teabagger revealing what teabaggers in general think. "Coloreds" don't want to "work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards." They want government to take care of them, to give them free handouts.
"Coloreds" might as well refer to anyone who's nonwhite. This is what conservatives think about blacks, Latinos, Indians, and anyone else with brown skin. They're all lazy, shiftless bums who are leeching off the hard work of white, Christian Euro-Americans.
If there's any doubt this is what many conservatives believe, here's more evidence:
It's Unanimous! GOP Says No To Unemployment Benefits, Yes To Tax Cuts For The Rich
Republicans To Unemployed: Why Won't You All Just Get Some Jobs Already?
Rep. Dean Heller (R-NV) said in February that he thinks that though "there should be a federal safety net," extending unemployment benefits yet again raises the question: "Is the government now creating hobos?"
And let's not waste a minute on Williams's pathetic "satire" defense. He wasn't satirizing the NAACP, he was "satirizing" blacks. In other words, he was savagely attacking blacks under the guise of satire. He was venting his ugly beliefs and hoping the "satire" label would excuse his blatant racism.
If you need any other evidence, look at his "Indonesian Muslim" and "welfare thug" remarks. Were those "satirical" too, or were they his actual beliefs? The latter, obviously. Whether Williams is saying what he means or pretending to be joking, he's bigoted against blacks. Like New Hampshire's Ryan Murdough, he's a racist.
Again, Williams is a leader of the Tea Party movement. He posted his "satire" precisely because he knew his followers would agree with it. If this wasn't a common belief within the Tea Party, he wouldn't have dared to post it. And other party leaders would've expelled him rather than defend and excuse his racism.
