Top Dem: Tea Party Wants To Lynch Blacks

From a not particularly outraged Politico:

Carson: Tea party wants blacks ‘hanging on a tree’

By: Jake Sherman

A top lawmaker in the Congressional Black Caucus says tea partiers on Capitol Hill would like to see African Americans hanging from trees and accuses the movement of wishing for a return to the Jim Crow era.

Rep. Andre Carson, a Democrat from Indiana who serves as the CBC’s chief vote counter, said at a CBC event in Miami that some in Congress would “love to see us as second-class citizens” and “some of them in Congress right now of this tea party movement would love to see you and me…hanging on a tree.”

Carson also said the tea party is stopping change in Congress, likening it to “the effort that we’re seeing of Jim Crow.”

The explosive comments, caught on tape, were uploaded on the internet Tuesday, and Carson’s office stood by the remarks. Jason Tomcsi, Carson’s spokesman, said the comment was “in response to frustration voiced by many in Miami and in his home district in Indianapolis regarding Congress’ inability to bolster the economy.” Tomcsi, in an email, wrote that “the congressman used strong language because the Tea Party agenda jeopardizes our most vulnerable and leaves them without the ability to improve their economic standing.

“The Tea Party is protecting its millionaire and oil company friends while gutting critical services that they know protect the livelihood of African-Americans, as well as Latinos and other disadvantaged minorities,” Tomcsi wrote. “We are talking about child nutrition, job creation, job training, housing assistance, and Head Start, and that is just the beginning. A child without basic nutrition, secure housing, and quality education has no real chance at a meaningful and productive life.”

Which of those enumerated services have been cut let alone "gutted"? Granted, they should be cut. But none of them have been. And, unfortunately, they aren’t likely to ever be cut.

Carson is hardly the first lawmaker to use heated rhetoric. Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) yelled “you lie” as President Barack Obama was addressing Congress. Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-Texas) yelled “baby killer” at former Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) as abortion was being discussed during the health care debate.

Oh, those hate mongering Republicans.

Carson, who represents Indianapolis, is the second Muslim to ever serve in Congress

How perfect.

We wonder if Mr. Carson has any idea of the history of Islam and black slavery. Which, of course, continues to this day.

    So this Ind. Rep spewed his panicked propaganda in Miami, eh? There must have been some reason for them to pick this 3rd world city to practice their sloganeering. Andre is merely aping Rep. Frederica Wilson and what she said last week, according to the Miami Herald at a town hall there: “The Tea Party holds the Congress hostage. They have one goal in mind, and that’s to make President Obama a one-term president.”

    We must steel ourselves for the 65 IQ crowd as they embark with their clubs and thumping across America. We were told that they were going to ramp up their rhetoric against the only enemy they can conceive of, the Conservatives (not al-Qaeda, not Hamas, not Hezbollah, or any of the hundreds of Islamic Fundamentalist cults, of course), over a week ago, and it started with the chief imbecile [prudence prevents me from using my first choice of adjective–knuckle-dragger] in Congress, Maxine Waters, when she took time out from her censure hearings to blurt out that “the Tea Party can go straight to hell”.

    We must take pity on these poor, wretched children, and try to give them a better upbringing than they were afforded originally, apparently. Our work is never done. The price of Freedom is eternal vigilance.

    The Congressional Black Caucus is peopled by idiots. Or is that a redundancy?

    Every time I hear one of those dipshits open his/her mouth to speak, I get the distinct feeling that somewhere inside that second-rate mind there is a third-rate mind struggling to the surface.

    And we have to pay them a salary??!! With benefits??!! For the rest of their lives??!!


    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      Of great use these days as regards the left: “Everytime one of them opens their mouth to speak, they withdraw from the sum of human knowledge.”

      Or, “It’s not that they’re wrong; It’s that they just know so much that isn’t so.”

      Honestly, the racist meme is played, tired, run-out, old, useless and categorically incorrect. And to that I also say, “Why is the NFL and NBA populated 99% by blacks?” The whole thing ran off the rails decades ago with affirmative action, quotas, special considerations, etc. The result of which is now sitting on his skinny little ass redistributing the people’s money to his buddies. But they are paid buddies…and just like in Roman times, as with the mafia, when the money stops…so stops the protection. He is living fat right now…having paid off many but when they come looking for more, as they already are, and he can’t provide, the paid-for will turn on him, again, as they already are.

      Obama decided to dance with the devil a long time ago when he signed on to unions’ dance cards. At best, it’s an “arm around the shoulder/knife at your side” kind of relationship. But Barry thinks he’s pretty slick and immune to the impending crescendo that is coming if he doesn’t keep the money flowing. And it’s very likely that this time, he will fail to provide more “stimulus”. That will set the wolves free and they’ll come for him first, or, at least in very short order. The union has as a catch phrase, “We made you, we can break you” and they have demonstrated that numerous times throughout the years.

      Perhaps it’s not the conservatives who will be successful in bringing down this presidency; It’s more likely in my estimation that his own bribed fans will do it. Hell, even Hitlery is probably more deft and attuned to the voices of the masses, not that she’s any virtuoso in the ways of political harmony (emphasis on ‘harm”). She at least would’ve been willing to toss the conservatives a bone now and again, just to shut them up and I’ll bet she can play-act at “bi-partisanship” better than the lying liar who lies.

      On that note, I’ve pretty much decided that Obama doesn’t know how not to lie. He’s been doing it all his life, probably learning how, at first, by his “victim” parents. To him, it’s normal. It’s how things are done. When you get your way, it reinforces that notion. Although there may be hold-outs who think he’s no worse than any other president, but he “deserves to be there because he’s black”….I can’t really believe that they don’t see even some of the glaring lies, unless, of course I ust consider the typical welfare recipient whose lifestyle is so completely and utterly different from my own, then….well….

      I was hoping that there would be a bumper sticker that was put out after Halperin’s statement that said, “He’s kind of a dick”.

      Andre Carson is Obamy without the 24x7x365 make-believe-media praetorian guard.

    Curious isn’t it the eerie parallels between Islam and Marxism?

    “We are talking about child nutrition, job creation, job training, housing assistance, and Head Start, and that is just the beginning. A child without basic nutrition, secure housing, and quality education has no real chance at a meaningful and productive life.”

    We provide all of this for our minorities that can’t find a way to make it on their own but what I find incredible are how terribly unproductive they are with all of these so-called goodies we let them have. How can ANYTHING be meaningful if it’s given to you by the very institution that wants to keep them enslaved, and we’re the racists?

  6. Right of the People says:

    HR quoted that shining light and mistress of civility Frederica Wilson: “The Tea Party holds the Congress hostage. They have one goal in mind, and that’s to make President Obama a one-term president.”

    She is only partially correct, making sure the boy wonder is only a one term president is only a side benefit of taking back our country from the liberal scum who are trying their whackadoodle best to destroy it.

  7. GetBackJack says:

    Until 1999, a communist group, the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) hosted the website of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. DSA members have direct ties to the Communist Party of USA, radicals, terrorists, corrupt unions and crime organizations.

    Because it finally got noticed.

    Marxism, Communists, Progressives, praise from Castro, praise from Chavez, hip-to-hip association with the Communist Party of America, the Progressive Congressional Caucus, the list is long and treasonous.

    Black Liberals Gone Wild…….again.

    No matter how embarrassing, crazy, racist, or untrue the comments are, liberals have TRAINED THEMSELVES to be selectively deaf in such situations. If they do accidentally hear it, they just make excuses,

    “Well, if you had been a slave for 400 years, you would be upset too!” (stock university student answer)
    “You have to understand black hyperbole (idiot!).” (stock social activist answer)
    “I didn’t hear him say that!” (stock talking-head liberal’s answer. Even though the file is played for them on the air, this ridiculous answer is still accepted)
    “I think what he meant to say was……” (stock media spin answer)
    “The Tea Party has a lot to answer for this time!” (stock political-hack answer)
    “I was totally taken out of context, you didn’t hear the whole conversation!” (stock answer given by offender if they are forced to account for their racism)

    Just you wait folks! This is level 1 in the racial hysteria they have in store for 2012. Wait until October 2012, it will surly be much much worse than this.

    To understand the mindset of the average liberal/fool who suffers from some form of collective guilt just listen to Alan Colmes or Bob Beckel for five minutes (if you can) and you WILL understand.

    • JohnMG says:

      I’d have to be in an alcohol-induced stupor to listen to either one of those idiots through one complete sentence, let alone five minutes. I’d rather slide down a 50 foot razor blade into a pool of acid first.

    • proreason says:

      They are the libwits closest to being rational that Fox can find.

      But I like the stunning blonde nitwit who is a professor at some obscure college much better. Hannity has her on as liberal eye candy from time to time. Maybe’s it’s wishful thinking but I think she actually believes in marxism kumbaya.

  11. Melly says:

    “I’m a TEA Party caucus member and have spoken at two tea party rallies. I am also NOT a racist. Maxine & Andre – get a grip,” Rep. Dennis Ross (R-Fla.) tweeted.


  12. Reality Bytes says:

    Actually, we just want to vote the CBC out of office (save Col. West of course).

  13. Natural Born Citizen says:

    All of these “talking points” of the Tea Party being racist comes straight from the top. The first post-racial POTUS, yeah right. Chairman O’bow Mao cannot run on his record so his only chance is to smear the Tea Party and divide the Republican party. He obviously did not learn from a mid-term “shellacking” that the Democrats received in 2010. He will double down again and is willing to destroy race relations along with our country in order to continue with his agenda and to remain in power. He and his minions are playing with fire. But then again that is there trump card. If you can’t win the election on your record create a straw-man villain and call him a racist. If all else fails instigate violence and blame the Tea Party when the crap hits the fan.
