The Lib on the Plane
By: Lloyd Marcus
So, I was flying back home to Florida after performing at the TeaPartyExpress.org fund raiser in Sacramento, CA. I will fly back to Sacramento to begin the national tour, Aug 28th. Please check the website to see when we are coming to your town. I would LOVE to shake your hand, continuing my Million Hand Shake March.
Anyway, a white liberal was seated next to me on the two hour connecting flight to Denver. He insisted on starting a conversation, asking numerous questions. After learning I was a singer associated with the Tea Party movement, he assumed, me being black, I was working against the protesters. This lib was stunned to hear I was one of the protesters. He said, â€œAnd they accept you a black guy and with a braid? And you feel comfortable around those people?â€ Though sounding like a jerk, he was truly not trying to be rude. He genuinely believed conservatives are up tight and the tea party protesters are racists.
For two hours we passionately verbally jousted, Lloyd â€œDark Knight Conservativeâ€ Marcus against Sir Mind Numb Emotion Driven Liberal. We both kept our debate respectful and even laughed a lot. Although, I wanted to rip his heart out when he said our troops were murderers and rapists. By God’s Grace, I remained calm.
I was struck by his underlying desire to think the worse of his country, capitalism and God. This is a common thread I have seen in most liberals.
Still, I believe I got this guy thinking. I gave him my card and told him to call me when his, â€œcome to Jesusâ€ moment happens. My gut, tells me it could be soon. I’ll keep y’all posted. I am so looking forward to meeting many of you on the Tea Party Express Tour.
God bless, Lloyd
