|Phipps hanging gallows truck in New York|
This incident over two years ago found Patriot Phipps driving around
, without the President, but with other Faison politicians Phipps claims did nothing in the murder of William Henry Phipps. Obama was added when Phipps was unhappy with the way a federal case ended. This is when he decided to take his show to the New York City convention. WBYV in Charlotte covered the story last October with vivid pictures you can see on the link. Charlotte
Phipps claims there is nothing racist in his display, and in all fairness he did have the noose thing before adding Obama. But anyone coming from the South must, or at least should, understand the connections between a noose and Southern racism. I grew up in the 50’s and 60’s South and witnessed first-hand the appalling treatment of blacks. I knew a Ku Klux Klan member and I remember his dedication to this sick cause. To say we have fixed this is simply absurd.

As I write this post I am corresponding by email with VR Phipps about his Tea Party membership which I confirmed on his site you can see here. Not only is he a member of the Tea Party but a part of their
as well, whatever that means. The Phipps I am talking to claims that he is not a member of the Tea Party, although the VR Phipps I originally emailed was an address taken right from the man’s own site, which he actually asked me to explain. Command Center
Maybe CNN brought this up again as a news item to remind Americans what a gang of radicals the Tea Party is, and also that there is still considerable work to be done yet on the equality of the races. Blacks have almost taken a back seat on race issue in the last few years as the state of
persecutes the Hispanics. Between Gov. Jan Brewer, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, plus disgraced State Sen. Russell Pearce, this state is considered the most bigoted. Arizona

By the way, I have not had an answer from my latest email to VR Phipps asking:
“Are you the VR Phipps that drove a trailer with gallows of mannequins hanging in effigy around
New York City and during the Democratic Convention? If not, there are two VR Phipps living in Charlotte, NC .” Faison, NC
Earlier emails from me with answers in chronological order from the first:
“Are you a member of the Tea Party?”
Answer: “No are you.”
“If you aren't, how do you explain this [your Tea Party] site?”
Answer: “What do you mean explain the site.
“Mr. Phipps, this is your page, clearly stating you are "now a member of
." If I have to explain your own site to you we have more than a communications problem.” Tea Party Command Center
Answer: “Are you a member of the Tea Party.”
“Apparently you are refusing to answer my question. I thought Tea Party Patriots were proud of their status. Obviously you are not.”
Answer: “No sir I do not claim to be a tea party member a Republican only.”
