Skip to comments.Alan Grayson: Tea Party ‘Largest Suicide Pact in History,’ ‘No More Popular Than the Klan’
Posted on 10/17/2013 7:48:15 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
Democratic congressman Alan Grayson is a very colorful man, and in keeping with that reputation, during an appearance on Al Sharptons MSNBC show Thursday, he said the tea party is just about as popular as the KKK and compared John Boehner to Dr. Jekyll, among other things.
Grayson joined Sharpton in bashing the tea party, saying Americans want them out of their lives and at this point, the tea partys no more popular than the Klan.
This is not the first time Grayson had made this comparison, saying in 2010 that the attendees of Glenn Becks big rally were wearing sheets over their heads 25 years ago.
Grayson predicted that the GOP is a dying party, on its way out like the Whigs were. He told Sharpton they want to bring about the end of days and cause utter destruction like the largest suicide pact in history. Grayson said its time to vote out tea partiers theyre not doing anything useful for the benefit of the country.
But its not just the tea partiers who need to go in Graysons mind, John Boehner needs to join them. He called the House Speaker a short-order cook for the far-right wing, and saying that the useless Boehner used to be Dr. Jekyll and now hes morphed into Mr. Hyde.
And this nutcase says it to Sharpton of all people
Good thing this was on MSNBC, no one was watching.
Colorful is too kind. Alan Grayson illustrates the Democrats’ commitment to hiring the psychotic.
The PR machine needs much improvement so that the Democrats and RINOs have absolutely NO wiggle room to come attacking without looking like idiots and anti-freedom dictators.
The TEA Party has no “PR machine” it isn’t even an organized movement
The liberals watch this channel then bring these talking points to CNN and other networks or to the office the next day.
America demands Justice for the Fallen of Benghazi!
And this is a guy who was elected through massive voter fraud. Nobody in Florida likes him, either liberals, conservatives or libertarians. Everybody knows he’s a flake and has no right to be in Congress.
I have to ask: Is there even a PR battle be won anymore? Should our energies really be devoted to ensuring the mainstream public gets the “right” message?
They really want the tea party, to be like the currently-larger GOP.
Sorry. Not gonna happen.
Their intent is to marginalize conservatives. This is all part of their plan...and yes, it is just like germany pre WWII.
That is true what you say but Democrats have redefined the Tea Party as right winged Conservatives within the Republican party led by Ted Cruz.
Keep it up, knuckleheads.
Look I’m all for Ted Cruz being in charge at the moment, except he’s against healthcare expansion.
Otherwise he’s completely on the right track.
Ted Cruz is long overdue. Keep talking Ted.
Absolutely, if you want the movement to grow.
Be what they fear. They fear us. Be what they fear.
When they holler.....do it again....make them holler louder.
It is not we who have changed, mutated, deformed, decayed. It is them.
They are liars. Freaks. Reprobates. Deal with them as you would a shrieking fish wife. Smile and stare them down.
We are many. They few. They are organized and focused. We need to become so. We are beginning to become so.
18 GOP Senators (40% of the party there) stood! 144 House Members (60% of the party there) stood. Including 7 of the 11 GOP reps in my own Ohio....63%!!!
Much more than supported independence in the big one, 1775/1776.
Now, question is, what do we do about those who did not.
Support ANY and all primary challengers to these weasels. Support candidates, not parties.
We can’t promise anyone victory. But we can promise to fight. Fight.
Who let this nut out of the mental hospital..they really need to get padlocks on the doors
I just don,t understand the liberal hysteria about the tea party.
