ACORN Whistleblower Co-founds 1st Black Tea Party in Sheila Jackson Lee’s Backyard

By: MataHarley
January 20, 2011

Yet another tea party movement forms, and this group will provide more than the usual pride in citizens, standing up against a government they demand be reined in.   Why? This tea party movement is made up of those supposed non-existent black Americans. And what gives me yet another smile is that this group is formed right under the nose of Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, [D-TX]  who made news in the past two days demonstrating her lack of Constitutional knowledge when she proclaimed any repeal of O’healthcare was unConstitutional.

Grab the Orville Redenbachers, folks…. this is going to be sheer entertainment.

Co-founder of the newest Texas tea party in Houston is a now familiar name, Anita Moncrief.    Ms. Moncrief sprang to the forefront back in late March, 2009, when I posted about her exposé of ACORN, and the deliberate attempts by the NYTs to conceal the Obama-ACORN ties. Curt followed up with his May 18th post and additional updates. If Ms. Moncrief were a liberal Democrat, as she stated she was, during her ACORN working days, she is one no more.

As their mission statement reads, in part:

“To build a strong base of conservative Black entrepreneurs, elected officials and constituents that provide Black conservatives a viable way to express and implement their conservative values politically.”

Co-founder Anita Moncrief says the party is also looking to overcome stereotypes.

“We’re trying to break the stereotype that the tea party is racist,” said Moncrief.

Per the above Fox local affiliate report, they observed “at least half” of the 75 who attended the newly formed Crispus Attucks Tea Party were white. While this is apt to be some sort of sticky point for the predictable naysayers who will be appalled at black Americans, daring to question Democrat policies and it’s effect on the black community, the healthier observation is that the Crispus Attucks Tea Party will not be demonstrating any racism, and welcome the community at large.


UPDATED: Per Ms. Moncrief, replying on a Free Republic thread, the notion that it’s a “black tea party” is the headline picked by the media, (and perpetuated, in part, by me). It’s likely it was labeled such because of both the founders, and the majority of citizens in that particular urban neighborhood. Also, the choice of christening their movement after the historic former slave, Crispus Attucks, may have added to the perception that it was a “black tea party”.   However, as I mentioned above, and Ms. Moncrief states in her own words below, they welcome the community at large, and this is not an exclusive “black caucus” type meeting of the minds.

Ms. Moncrief says:

To: SpaceBar
I think you are missing the point. When I worked for ACORN, they used blacks to hide their illegal activity. What we are trying to do is break that cycle. Last night’s meeting was about unity. If we are true Conservatives, we care about ALL of America and want to take it back. Tea Parties are set up where people live and there is not one in 3rd ward.

The media is calling us a “black Tea Party” but we are simply a Tea Party set up in a urban minority area. All are welcome. We are also a party of the Texas Tea Party Federation.

This detracts from their tea party formation in no way. They do every tea party movement in the nation proud, and great service, when Moncrief and her neighbors demonstrate that citizens’ disfavor for an out of control government and the decades of increased control has no racial boundary.

You may also wish to check out Ms. Moncrief’s website, Emerging Corruption. She is in some illustrious company on the editorial board. END UPDATE


Equally impressive is their press release, which should cause a few lib/prog heads to spin exorcist style.

This inaugural meeting will be a celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday and his leadership. It will also be a celebration of all of those who blazed trails for other Americans and especially for those who have advanced the full assimilation and liberty of the descendants of America’s Black slaves. America is entering a period in time where “Content and Character are indeed more important than Color” for those who prepare themselves to be competitive. That too is worth celebrating.


Neither political party has been intellectually honest with itself or Blacks. The Crispus Attucks Tea Party unleashes the anesthetized political giant rendered helpless by an unending stream of government programs funded by tax dollars. Programs, welfare checks and the demise of pride and the work ethic have robbed Blacks of their identities and their dignity. They have devastated Black neighborhoods and rendered them politically and economically impotent. The Crispus Attucks Tea Party will shift political power away from race bating politicians, games of ‘Three Card Monty” played by highly skilled political operators and race hustlers who base all political activities and campaigns on race. Operating within Black districts these charlatans have proven incapable of acting in the best interest of those they claim to represent.

Ms. Jackson Lee? According to Big Government’s James Simpson, she was graciously invited to attend. The Congresswoman did not accept… whether with, or without grace, is not documented or sourced. But I will note this…. James Simpson is one of the editorial board on Ms. Moncrief’s news website, Emerging Corruption. Simpson described la femme Jackson Lee’s response to the invitation as a “snub”.    Simpson may have some inside knowledge… that I do not know. But the Congresswoman is not known for her social graces… i.e. her abuse of flight attendants, throwing cell phones at staffers, and making absurd statements about christening hurricanes with “lily white” names.   (Mata Musing: it’s an interesting cyber trail, looking for these stories… most of which seem to have been expunged from the internet. Why is that, I wonder?)

Newly elected Texas State Representative James Early White, however did attend… and expressed no qualms about the expected heat he’ll be likely to take as a black elected “in” with tea party ties.

The newest tea partiers named their group after Crispus Attucks, a runaway slave turned sailor/dockworker who was the first to die in the Boston Massacre March 5th, 1770, three and a half years before the Boston Tea Party.   Per the library at Thinkquest, he lay in state in Fanueil Hall until, along with three other victims of the Boston Massacre, he was entombed in a common sepulcher.

Crispus Attucks    1723? – 1770

"His death has forever linked his name with the cause of freedom."

In 1888, a monument was constructed on Boston Common facing Tremont St. During the dedication, poet John Boyle O’Reilly read a poem called Crispus Attucks:

“Honor to Crispus Attucks, who was leader and voice that day;  The first to defy, and the first to die, with Maverick, Carr, and Gray.  Call it riot or revolution, his hand first clenched at the crown:  His feet were the first in perilous place to pull the King’s flag down:  His breast was the first one rent apart that liberty’s stream might flow;  For our freedom now and forever, his head was the first laid low.  Call it riot or revolution, or mob or crowd, as you may, such deaths have been seed of nations, such lives shall be honored for aye.”

As with all the tea parties, I wish these folks great success in capturing the ear of their elected officials. But I suspect that their road may be made even more difficult than what we’ve already seen to date.

    • Good, good, good. You go, girl! I love that woman and I love the name of that Tea Party. I wonder how many school children were taught about that patriot Crispus Attucks? I was. Were you? I wonder if he’s been expunged? I saw that monument in Boston once. Very moving to walk where they walked. To see where the “shot heard round the world” was fired, too.

      Here’s a story in today’s WSJ about Walter Williams. Another great American. Like Anita MonCrief. God bless them. These are the people who truly will usher in the post-racial America.

  1. Obama Acorn and Stealth Socialism – Dire Domestic Threat
    by Anita
    “As an ex-ACORN insider and ex-radical who used Democrat donor lists to raise money for ACORN alter-ego Project Vote and designed the ACORN 2005, 2006 and 2007 Political Operations Year End PowerPoint presentations, I know that President Obama (for whom I now regretfully admit I proudly voted) was an ACORN guy for many years and realize that he became the instrument for the implementation of its stealth socialism agenda.”

    “Stealth socialism allowed ACORN to set the stage for Obama’s ‘regime’ as they called it internally. Wade Rathke was willing to fall on his sword in 2008 to protect Obama, and to attain what nearly 40 years organizing the country towards socialism promised. After the embezzlement scandal, ACORN board members and staff assembled at meetings across the country and as insiders revealed, and I testified about, ‘fighting Capitalism’ was listed as one of the things ‘great about ACORN.’

    “Obama has shown himself to be unrelenting in his quest to pass healthcare, take over American industries and weaken our national security. America can’t afford to be fooled by increasingly obvious tactics of the Far Left. It’s time for the great majority of Americans to turn the tables back on the Far Left by getting involved and organized and voting out incumbents who vote against the traditional American way. We need a morning in America, but it’s always darkest before the dawn.”

      hummmm…Rathke..Greasy hotdogs again Bridgette ? That Routh-Rath-Roth name keeps popping up no ?

  2. Former Acorn Employee Anita Moncrief with Megyn Kelly

    Acorn Facing Serious Charges of Voter Registration Fraud
    There is a Quota Voter System in play
    Training Manuals stating there is a quota for registering voters.

  3. Anita MonCrief is the National Spokesperson for American Majority and the Editor-in-Chief of a new website, Emerging Corruption. She is also known as the ACORN/Project Vote Whistleblower.

    MonCrief attended the University of Alabama where she majored in political science and history. She has worked with the American Bar Association’s Central European and Eurasian Law Initiative; (ABA CEELI), the International Crisis Group, the Grameen Foundation and American Rights at Work. She also partnered with the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe on their mission to Macedonia as an election observer.

    In 2008, MonCrief came forward, first as a confidential source of The New York Times and, after The New York Times backed away, publicly, to expose the damage that ACORN has done to the impoverished and marginalized communities, as well as its rampant voter fraud. She also began to blog and write about corruption within the ACORN/Project Vote network of corporations.

    In June 2009, Project Vote/ACORN filed a lawsuit against MonCrief in an attempt to silence her. In March 2010, the ACORN/Project Vote lawsuit was dismissed.

      after The New York Times backed away

    • I wonder why the New York Times “backed away” from Anita’s story. 🙂

      • That was a huge story…I can’t remember who Anita was confiding in, a woman, but it was before the election. The NY Times knew that her story would affect Obama’s campaign, so they didn’t back away, they refused to print the person’s article that she was writing. In effect, they influenced the election by not revealing pertinent information that could have changed the perception of Obama.

        I thought someone was suing the NY Times for this, or maybe it was in Anita’s blog where she revealed all of the details.

  4. Maybe the Tea Party w/black and white banners should co-opt “Together We Thrive”. With a black standard bearer on one end a white standard bearer on the other? I like it!

    • Oh, that’s a great idea, skeeter. With a photo of Crispus Attucks on it, too!
      I dared to venture back to Google and they show only the Fox stories about this. No other lamestream media outlet is reporting on it; what a surprise! Here’s a story from Houston:
      And another:

      That’s about it. Interesting. Oooh, Bridgette. I searched on Google Blogs option and guess whose story is a the top? Bridgette!

      • Gosh, it should be Flopping Aces that gets the credit! I saw the one article from Houston and it led me to Flopping’s Blog. There was nothing else it was a given that it wouldn’t make news unless we make it news. Blacks in the Tea Party would screw up the progressives’s meme and show them as Liars once again..and so close to the lies spread during the Arizona tragedy, and now the ones trying to cover for Abercrombie!

        Those bloggers and JournOlist members aren’t getting much sleep these days! Needless to say, neither are the guys sitting in their undies in the bowels of their basements! They are being slayed* by patriots on blogs now. I do see patriots are trying to give them concrete facts to deal with, and they are wasting lots of time doing so, when just a couple words will do. “We Won!” followed by “slimebag” or whatever noun you’d like to use. “Get used to it” and “Ha Ha” works well to! Those few words are “back at ya” comments.

        *intentional use of the word! The Political Correctness freaks are only trying to silence the patriots now! Freedom of speech says I can use any word I want to, and I will. The Left doesn’t want us using their tactics on all of a sudden they are going to change their despicable ways? They don’t have another way. So have at it. Let’em have it with both barrels! They are now the targets and deserve all the shots they get from their opponents!
        (Pretty good, huh!..and without trying!)

  5. This will be fun when the various incarnations of ACORN start their shenanigans for 2012. There will be Anita and the Crispus Attucks Tea Party to provide counterpoint. She’ll be there any time the lamestream start their meme that the Tea Party is a bunch of middle-aged, white men. Who will know better than Anita what type of antics the ACORNers will pull?

  6. “Backed by hundreds of thousands of dollars in union donations, New York Communities for Change — a rebranded version of the controversial organization that closed up shop amid several scandals — is acting again as labor’s attack dog on controversial issues.

    NYCC took over ACORN’s office on Nevins Street in Brooklyn, shares some of the same board members and uses its membership lists and other resources.”
