Jack SwaggerPaul Joseph Watson of InfoWars.com has written an article taking a look at outraged fans on Twitter who are criticizing WWE of demonizing the tea party with its current Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger angle, and the specific reference by the WWE announcers to Swagger and Colter getting "fan mail" from the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and Alex Jones.

The following is an excerpt from the article:

World Wrestling Entertainment has jumped on the bandwagon of demonizing Tea Party Americans as racists by creating a xenophobic character who espouses anti-immigrant rhetoric, as WWE commentators quip that he receives “fan mail” from Alex Jones, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

During Swagger’s match, commentators Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler joked that Swagger and Colter had received “fan mail” from conservative radio talk show hosts Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and Alex Jones.

Twitter users reacted with outrage, slamming the WWE for “crapping all over the Tea Party” by “promoting a Racist, immigrant hating Tea Party character vs a Mexican wrestler.”

“What the fuck are you doing with this Zeb Colter guy? A heel with a Tea Party stereotype angle? Do you still want my money?” asked Mark Scudder.
