ARKANSAS TEA PARTY MEMBER RESIGNS AFTER TELLING THIS RACIALLY-CHARGED JOKE ABOUT ‘DEMOCRACY’

A member of an Arkansas Tea Party group has resigned her committee seat after she opened an event last week by telling a racially-charged joke.

Inge Marler told the joke as an ice-breaker before a June 9 rally of the Ozark Tea Party. It details a fictitious conversation between a black boy and his mother after the boy asks about democracy:

“A black kid asks his mom, ‘Mama, what’s a democracy?’
“‘Well, son, that be when white folks work every day so us po’ folks can get all our benefits.’
“‘But mama, don’t the white folk get mad about that?’
“‘They sho do, son. They sho do. And that’s called racism.’”
Audio has surfaced of Marler telling the joke, too:
“I was caught off-guard,” the group’s founder, Richard Caster, told the Baxter Bulletin afterwards. “I wish she (Ozark Tea Party board member Inge Marler) hadn’t said it,” Caster said. “I am sorry about Miss Marler’s joke.”

Marler, who was member of the group’s steering committee, has since resigned. Caster announced that move in a statement to the paper, which included a charge to the media to do its due diligence in investigating other matters:

On Saturday, June 9th, the Ozark Tea Party came together to work towards a brighter future for America. Sadly, our vision and message was tainted by an incredibly inappropriate joke told by one of our committee members, Inge Marler.
I was shocked when it was told and as the leader of this organization, I sincerely apologize. Jokes like these have no place in American Politics.

    Too bad the joke is true. All humor has a certain amount of truth in it for it to be universally funny, and that joke is funny as hell.

    Not a real bright move on her part but I fully understand people's frustration with the Liberals constant obsession with manipulating everything a racial issue and purposely creating one when it didn't exist.

    They MUST keep the divide going with not only blacks but anyone with a smidgen of minority status at odds with the conservative side of the issues. They don't want people to see Star Parker's success after gaming the system herself and rising above what she aptly refers to as "Uncle Sam's Plantation" in her book by the same name.
