The Brilliance of the Crispus Attucks Tea Party

On the evening of January 18th, I had the pleasure of attending the inaugural meeting of the Crispus Attucks Tea Party of Houston, founded by American Majority’s own Anita MonCrief and other local leaders in the city’s black community, such as Reverend Bowie and Earl Johnson. The meeting was held at “This Is It” restaurant in Sheila Jackson Lee’s district, just down the street from her residence. Humorously, the advent of a tea party organization that seeks to reach out to the voters in her community has come on the scene just as the Congresswoman has been castigated nationally for her less-than-logically-sound comments regarding the supposed unconstitutionality of repealing ObamaCare. The Congresswoman was invited to the meeting, but not surprisingly, the organization’s outreach was declined.

On the goals of this new Tea Party:

Our primary objective is to break the cycles of dependency and decay that continue to anesthetize and hold captive too many Black families and neighborhoods. We provide a continuing series of speakers, seminars, training and practical business support services designed to help Blacks fully assimilate into and be competitive in American society. Our objective is to teach all Americans the fullness of the history of Blacks in America and to help Blacks gain control of their lives and the destiny of their children. Only by understanding our full and true history will we all of America be liberated.

The Crispus Attucks Tea Party is part of America’s rapidly growing Tea Party movement. Starting with Houston’s 3rd Ward, it will focus all of the power amassed across America by the Tea Party movement directly into targeted Black neighborhoods across America. Yes !! .. Our army operates .. “Inside The Belly Of The Beast”. The Crispus Attucks Tea Party is a non-partisan, neighborhood movement. It provides a base of operations for the descendants of Black Slavery who realize that welfare checks and government dependency are key elements of their destruction. The corresponding destructive cycles have destroyed lives, families and their neighborhoods. Government dependency holds Blacks hostage. It precludes true liberty and forever blocks full assimilation. Our mission includes building series of strong neighborhood operating bases made of business people, elected officials, Constituents and Voters, living and working in “hostile areas”.

The Crispus Attucks Tea Party promotes and fights for the founding principles originally defined by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Our core principles include personal responsibility, education, a constrained and transparent government, a balanced budget, self sufficiency, full assimilation and the development of viable Black businesses …. that create jobs.
