'Racist Tea Party Blogger' Actually a Democratic Donor

The truth just keeps getting in the way of the media's false 'ignorant racist tea party protester' theme.

Video embedded below.

"Luckily Think Progress was somehow able to profile the guys life, well almost at least. They unfortunately left out the part where Majors donated thousands of dollars to the DNC, which the Daily Beast reported:

According to, he’s donated about $15,000 to Democrats since 2000, including a $10,000 donation to the DNC in 2000, a $500 donation to Howard Dean in 2003, and a $1,000 donation to John Kerry in 2004. His only recent contribution to a Republican candidate was $250 in 2002 to retired Rep. Jim Kolbe, then lone openly gay Republican in Congress.

Which would of been good to know. Honest mistake probably. Really, who would ever have thought that a political donation history would be relevant in determining someone’s political leanings? Doubt they needed it anyway. After all, if you’ve ever seen a guest of Countdown, then you know that nobody is more credible than a ‘largely unknown blogger,’ especially the if the name is Ezra Klein.
