WTF Statement From Tea Party Diversity Rally

WTF Statement From Tea Party Diversity Rally August 4, 2010

Talking Points Memo has a report on a tea party diversity rally called Uni-Tea in Philadelphia. It includes this WTF moment:

Apparently, Uni-Tea wasn’t only bridging the racial gap. Brendan Kissam and Matt Hissey wandered into the event carrying signs that said “proud gay conservative” and “freedom is fabulous.” They said they were “the Gayborhood’s envoy to the tea party.”

The pair said the tea party is welcoming to their minority group, too. “The Tea Party is accepting of everybody,” said Hissey, adding that “Skin color diversity — that’s not real diversity. Everyone here has a different life experience.” Hissey recognized that the tea party “might be against gay marriage,” but that’s ok, he said, because he is too.

Huh?

"He was probably hoping to dissuade black people from buying."
