CNN, Aug. 31
Quote:
A spokesman for Democratic Rep. Andre Carson said the Indiana representative and member of the Congressional Black Caucus is not backing down from comments he made previously, when he said members of the Tea Party movement on Capitol Hill would like to see African Americans "hanging on a tree." Jason Tomsci, Carson's aide, confirmed the comments and reaffirmed the sentiment. "He used strong language because the Tea Party agenda jeopardizes the most vulnerable," Tomasci told CNN Wednesday.

...Video surfaced Tuesday on TheBlaze.com, a website run by conservative host Glenn Beck, which shows Carson, who holds a leadership role in the CBC, at an Aug. 22 event in Florida. "Some of these folks in Congress would love to see us as second class citizens. Some of them in Congress right now of this Tea Party movement would love to see you and me...hanging on a tree," Carson said according to the audio. He also equated the efforts of those in the Tea Party movement to Jim Crow laws that historically kept African Americans from voting.

It pisses me off when people say shit like that. There are so many well reasoned critiques you can make about the Tea Party as a whole. Why shoot for the fringe? You're just going to make an ass of yourself and confirm what the majority of the Tea Party thinks about Democrats.

Memo to Rep. Carson. Tea Party as lynchin' racists is out. Tea Party as hostage-taking terrorists is in.

This hack has a legacy seat in a gerrymandered safe district. Embarrassing that he represents the great state of Indiana in the Congress.

Indeed they are. In my state, the GOP has had a stranglehold on the state because of it. My hometown is one of the most gerrymandered areas in the country.

But yes, it is a problem that both parties share blame for.

Glenn Beck's Tea Party rally on the Mall. Organization, civility and an uplifting message are looking better with each passing day.



Watching the Occupy movement spiral out of control isn't even funny anymore. It was too tempting to make fun of the ridiculous of it. But I'm done now. The country faces monumental problems. People truly are hurting, mad and apprehensive. The last thing we need is division, rancor, agitation and envy.

Conservatives and moderates were hurting, mad and apprehensive in 2009 as well. But we did something about it. The picture above is also "what democracy looks like." Were they beyond criticism? No. Did you have to agree with them? No. But really, shame on those that dismissed, mocked or falsely charged the Tea Party with racism.

And shame on those stirring discontent among the populace today.

Pretty entertaining that you have fallen for Beck's faux message. He's only in it for the Benjamin's, Indy. I'm sorry.

Indeed, division and debate are really even worse than thought crime.

And shame on you, Beck, Hannity, and all the others who dismissed and swept the racism under the rug.

EVERY single time we pointed out specific moments of racism you ignore it, or worse yet defended it.

Honestly you have NO right shaming anyone.

I'm much less offended by the occasional Tea Party racist than I am by the overwhelming stupidity of their ideas for public policy. Stupidity is the most offensive thing in the world, to me.

Yesterday on air Beck said that these people want to kill you. So much for your non-divisive bullshit story.

The fact that you posted that with absolutely no sense of irony shows how buried under his bullshit you really are.

I take it you haven't seen the signs or heard the rants of people literally saying to hunt down the rich, kill them and eat them.

And when Bill Maher and Rachel Maddow share a good laugh over the idea of throwing rocks through Fox News' and Rupert Murdoch's windows, isn't violence the next step?
