Over the weekend, Tea Party Express chairman and author Mark Williams faced scathing criticism for posting a parody letter supposedly written by African American leaders to Abraham Lincoln. In March, Williams began selling his own book on Amazon.
Entitled Mark Williams: Taking Back America One Tea Party at a Time his book sells for $20 on Amazon. Here’s more from the book’s description: “Why Obama is dangerous and must be stopped > How the media has lined up against the nation > Why “Under God” is important > Who is the real enemy of liberty? > Liberals really ARE mentally ill > Real racism > The Savagry of Islam and how political correctness led to 9/11″
The leader has since been kicked out of the 85-member National Tea Party Federation and has stepped out of his leadership role at the Tea Party Express. In his controversial letter, fictional African Americans urged the Lincoln to reinstate slavery. Even though the original post has been removed, Talking Points Memo recorded some of the highly offensive material at this post.
