Alan Grayson Warns: Tea Party Could Use Violence

From the Daily Caller:

Alan Grayson doubles down, warns tea party could use violence like KKK

By Jeff Poor | October 23, 2013

Florida Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson doubled down his extremely provocative rhetoric on Wednesday, in the days after his campaign sent out a fundraising email with an image likening the tea party to the Klan that showed two Klansmen in the background with a burning cross used as the “t” in “tea party.”

However, Grayson took his tea party-KKK comparison another step further and said the tea party engaged in hate speech, racism, discrimination, bigotry and in some case even threats of violence.

“I think the tea party should expel those members who engage in hate speech,” Grayson said to an unidentified reporter with Orlando ABC affiliate WFTV.

Given that the tea party is not an official organization, how can they expel anyone? Unlike, say the Democrat Party, who should have expelled this vile miscreant years ago.

“So many members of the tea party have engaged in hate speech against the president, against the first lady, against numerous members of the Congress and against me. And we could give you examples of that.” …

But we won’t. Because they don’t exist.

WFTV asked Grayson if perhaps this was a step too far, to use the extreme imagery, but the Florida Democrat pushed back.

“No, it doesn’t go too far because the essence of both unfortunately is an undue openness to racism, to bigotry, to prejudice,” he continued. “In fact generations ago, the KKK was the home of that sentiment and all too often today we see the tea party being the home of that sentiment.”

In fact, generations ago the KKK was the ‘militant arm’ of the Democrat Party. And their primary target was the Republican Party. It’s funny how little things have changed.

Grayson was also asked if the comparison was unfair since the KKK would use violence and that the tea party has shown signs of using violent measures…

Unlike Mr. Grayson’s side, who actually beat people up. They walk the walk. While the Tea Party doesn’t even talk the talk.

Overheard on MSNBC: Grayson burning cross email ‘opens the door’ for discussion on race

By Jeff Poor | October 23, 2013

On Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Martin Bashir,” two guests suggested there was some merit to Rep. Alan Grayson’s Ku Klux Klan email…

MSNBC’s commentators backed up Grayson. Angela Rye, a Democratic strategist, told host Martin Bashir there was no need for Grayson to apologize for that email and noted that it draws attention to race issues.

“I don’t think Alan Grayson should apologize,” Rye said. “I do understand the commentary around, you know, maybe he went too far. What I cannot accept, though, is why we can’t really have an honest conversation about tea party and bigotry…"

The last thing people like Grayson or MSNBC or their bosses in the Obama administration want is an honest conversation about bigotry. They are soaking in it.

  1. As Rush says, Democrats always let you know who they’re afraid of. Go Tea Party!

  2. BannedbytheTaliban

    No surprise here. The Democrat party has been using burning crosses and the KKK to promote their message since reconstruction. Mr. Grayson is just passing the torch so to speak.

  3. I’m sure Grayson will get to enjoy all the flames he can stand, and have an eternity to contemplate the cross.

  4. The Redneck

    To see who the Left is attacking most fiercely, look at who they claim to be afraid of.

  5. canary

    Steve, the Unions played a large part in promoting the KKK too.

    ” sent out a fundraising email …”

    you have to give the little SOB some credit,

    he is just deploying time proven methods used by another ” democracy”.

    How democracy produced a monster
    By Ian Kershaw New York Times

    Hitler came to power in a democracy with a highly liberal constitution, and in part by using democratic freedoms to undermine and then destroy democracy itself. That democracy, established in 1919, was a product of defeat in war and revolution and was never accepted by most of the German elites, notably the military, large landholders and big industry.
    Troubled by irreconcilable political, social and cultural divisions from the beginning, the new democracy survived serious threats in the early postwar years and found a semblance of stability from 1924 to 1928, only to be submerged by the collapse of the economy after the Wall Street crash of 1929.
    The Nazis’ surge in popular support (2.6 percent of the vote in the 1928 legislative elections, 18.3 percent in 1930, 37.4 percent in July 1932) reflected the anger, frustration and resentment – but also hope – that Hitler was able to tap among millions of Germans. Democracy had failed them, they felt. Their country was divided, impoverished and humiliated. Scapegoats were needed.

    “It would not have been possible for us to take power or to use it in the ways we have without the radio….”
    Certainly the Nazis recognised the importance of radio in disseminating their message and to that end Goebbels approved a scheme whereby millions of cheap radio sets (the Volksempfänger) were subsidised by the government. Goebbels claimed the radio was the “eighth great power”

    Mein Kampf contains the blueprint of later Nazi propaganda efforts. Assessing his audience, Hitler writes in chapter VI:

    “Propaganda must always address itself to the broad masses of the people. (…) All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the least intellectual of those to whom it is directed. (…) The art of propaganda consists precisely in being able to awaken the imagination of the public through an appeal to their feelings, in finding the appropriate psychological form that will arrest the attention and appeal to the hearts of the national masses. The broad masses of the people are not made up of diplomats or professors of public jurisprudence nor simply of persons who are able to form reasoned judgment in given cases, but a vacillating crowd of human children who are constantly wavering between one idea and another. (…) The great majority of a nation is so feminine in its character and outlook that its thought and conduct are ruled by sentiment rather than by sober reasoning. This sentiment, however, is not complex, but simple and consistent. It is not highly differentiated, but has only the negative and positive notions of love and hatred, right and wrong, truth and falsehood.”

    As to the methods to be employed, he explains:

    “Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favourable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favourable to its own side. (…) The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward. (…) Every change that is made in the subject of a propagandist message must always emphasize the same conclusion. The leading slogan must of course be illustrated in many ways and from several angles, but in the end one must always return to the assertion of the same formula.”

    For months prior to the beginning of World War II in 1939, German newspapers and leaders had carried out a national and international propaganda campaign accusing Polish authorities of organizing or tolerating violent ethnic cleansing of ethnic Germans living in Poland. On 22 August, Adolf Hitler told his generals:

    “I will provide a propagandistic casus belli. Its credibility doesn’t matter. The victor will not be asked whether he told the truth.”

    The main part of this propaganda campaign was the false flag project, Operation Himmler, which was designed to create the appearance of Polish aggression against Germany, which was subsequently used to justify the invasion of Poland.

    Liberals have been “warning” of Tea Party violence for years now, yet, just like global warming, the reality is that it just never happens.
