The 99.9% white teabagger rallies aren't exactly friendly to Latinos-which happens to be the fastest growing voting bloc.

We look at those rallies and it's pretty clear what is going on to us. If progressives show up there, it will only serve to push us away from progressives as well as away from dipshit conservatives.
