Norman Lear: Archie Bunker Was Not Racist Hater Like Tea Party

On MSNBC’s “The Cycle,” television writer and producer Norman Lear, who created the iconic 70’s TV sitcoms, “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons,” “One Day at a Time” and Maude, said his legendary conservative, blue-collar character Archie Bunker would have “denied” Tea Party because he was not a “hater.”

When asked if Archie Bunker would be a member of the Tea Party today Lear said, “Archie would have denied the Tea Party. He would started the coffee party. He was not a hater and that was the secret of Archie Bunker,  he was not a hater. He was much more afraid of progress then he was um of a bigotry. Black people moving into the neighborhood, wait a minute that never happened before.”
