Here's how they were described in the article:
The Council of Conservative Citizens, a St. Louis-based group that promotes the preservation of the white race, has sponsored its own tea parties in some Southern states.And here's a screenshot of Gateway Pundit linking to them:
The council’s website has referred to blacks as “a retrograde species of humanity” and said non-white immigration would turn the country into a “slimy brown mass of glop.”
He later linked to a video on the White Supremacist website claiming, with no evidence whatsoever, that black children (Hoft called them "thugs") assaulted a white child on a school bus. Furthermore, he kept his link up even after his own commenters complained that it was to a supremacist site.
Keep that in mind as the tea party is whining about the suggestion that there are elements of racism in their group.
