WWE Demonizes Tea Party With Racist ‘Real American’ Villainous Character, Generates Outrage

racist-tea-party-guy

The WWE has entered the Tea Party mockery game with character Jack Swagger and his villainous “Real American” manager Zeb Colter, generating outcry from conservative fans of the pro-wrestling organization.

Appearing on Monday Night Raw last week, Swagger and Colter were booed by the crowd as they overzealously talked about the Constitution, the scourge of illegal immigration, and “true patriotism.” Other promotional videos of the two show them talking about freeloading immigrants and welfare recipients in front of the Gadsden flag, which has become symbolic of the Tea Party movement.

Swagger is set to battle for the “World Heavyweight Championship” (or whatever it’s called) against Mexican wrestler Alberto Del Rio — clearly a play on the stereotypical tension between anti-immigration types and Mexicans.
