Tea Party Express Leader Mark Williams Kicked Out of Movement

Mark Williams, the leader of The Tea Party Express, who railed against accusations of racism within The Tea Party while referring to President Obama as "an Indonesian Muslim turned welfare thug" has been kicked out of the National Tea Party Federation after he posted a blatantly racist blog entry in rebuttal to the request of the NAACP to oust fringe racist groups from their organization.

Williams, who in the past has referred to Obama, former President Jimmy Carter, and the Democrat Party as "enemies of America" on his website, called the Manhattan boro president a "Jewish Uncle Tom who would have turned fink on Anne Frank", and led a recent fight to ban the building of a mosque near Ground Zero, posted a "satirical" piece on his blog in which he wrote a letter to President Lincoln on the behalf of "colored people". Below an excerpt, as reproduced by The Daily News.

"We Coloreds have taken a vote and decided that we don't cotton to that whole emancipation thing. Freedom means having to work for real, think for ourselves, and take consequences along with the rewards. That is just far too much to ask of us Colored People and we demand that it stop!"

Yesterday on CBS's Face The Nation, Tea Party Federation spokesman David Webb said the following.....

"We have expelled Tea Party Express and Mark Williams from the National Tea Party Federation because of the letter that he wrote"

Williams' response to his expulsion appears on his website's July 18th entry.

Mark Williams is no stranger to this blog. In the past we have referred to his words and actions, and included two entries when he mixed it up a bit with MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan and CNN's Anderson Cooper.
