A racial slur-ridden flyer circulated Wednesday morning by a group calling themselves “The Milton County Tea Party Patriots Citizens Council” was denounced by the official Georgia Tea Party Patriots, who claimed the group was not connected with them and is not officially recognized by their organization.
“We are very suspect of this flyer,” states Tea Party spokesperson Julianne Thompson in a prepared statement. “We believe it is either a group of local extremists afraid to use their own names… or it is an attempt at character assassination…Either way, we strongly condemn this type of flyer, its disgusting language and intention…This group is in no way permitted to use the name of the Tea Party Patriots.”
The main context of the hate-filled flyer is opposition to a Fulton County charter school named Amana Academy, which teaches students language classes in Arabic. The flyer refers to the school as a “terrorist training camp” and uses a number of racial slurs, a few of which refer to Muslims as “camel jockeys” and “ragheads.”
