Citizens Alliance refuses to retract press release alleging ‘Tea Party White Pride activities’

NH Citizens Alliance appears unwilling to retract a press release the organization issued on Sunday that inaccurately attributed a “white pride” rally in Concord to “NH Tea Party members.” The press release appeared to have been picked up only by a leftwing blog with close ties to the New Hampshire Democrat Party.

An investigation by NowHampshire.com revealed that the event was actually hosted by North East White Pride, an organization that predates, and has no affiliation to, the Tea Party movement.

Former state Democrat Party Chairman Kathy Sullivan apologized and retracted her condemnation of the Tea Party movement and Republican political candidates she had earlier accused of condoning the white pride rally through their affiliations with various Tea Party groups.

“Mea culpa for blaming the NH tea party people,” wrote Sullivan on the leftwing blog.

But Sarah Chaisson Warner of NH Citizens Alliance is not backing down.

“Nowhere in the release is there mention that the NH Tea Party Coalition were the hosts of the rally,” Warner told NowHampshire.com

Warner’s press release was titled, “NH Tea Party Members Celebrate White Pride Day at New Hampshire State House.”

Warner did not respond when asked to name a single member of the “NH Tea Party” who attended the “white pride” rally.

    Seems to me they should be concerned with their own racists. Where are they condemning those?

    After all, Chaisson’s group is funded by Soros, a Nazi-enabler who should be in jail for what he did.. Then we have Robert Byrd of the KKK in the Democrat party, and now the Panthers asking to kill white people.

    As one of the five members of North East White Pride that staged the rally on Sunday at the Concord state house, I can assure everyone that we are not in anyway affiliated with the Tea Party Coalition. That movement, like the “Reagan Revolution” and the “Contract with America” before it, will fail, simply because it refuses to acknowledge that the problems facing America are racial. The Powers-That-Be (PTB) hate White America and until White Americans come to understand this, they (the PTB) will continue to denigrate our heritage, rob us of our traditions, and destroy our culture and way of life.

    Although I think the Tea Partiers are headed down the wrong path, I certainly support their right not to be slandered. If the Tea Party Coalition needs an affidavit from me, you can contact me by clicking on my name above.

    I’m not sure what’s worse: that the fool at NHCA won’t retract or that Ms. Sullivan actually *believed* this could be true.
