Southern Democratic congressman sends fundraising email with burning cross representing tea party
The Daily Caller ^ | 10-22-2013 | Jamie Weinstein

Posted on 10/22/2013 9:47:42 AM PDT by markomalley

Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson sent out a fundraising email with a burning cross to compare the tea party to the Klu Klux Klan.

The Florida congressman, who was known for his over-the-top antics in the House during a previous tenure in Congress, also excerpted a transcript of a recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Politics Nation w/ Al Sharpton” in which he declared that, after the government shutdown, “the tea party is no more popular than the Klan.”

In the email, the burning cross is used as a “t” to spell out “tea party.” See part of the email below:

Nutjob. He's a Traficant wannabe, except Traficant had more class (and better hair) than Grayson ever could manage (yes, I know, Traficant went to jail...and has a toupee)

Greyson is one nutjob but there were many nuts who put him into office. Scary when you think of it that way.

Makes you wonder if Greyson and the rest of the libtards would like the Tea Party members to have “Tea Party” sewn into their cloths so they can be more recognizable?

Unfortunately, the blacks of his district are illiterate, stupid, and gullible enough to buy into his racist screed.

Very few blacks know that the Democrats started the KKK, or that they fought the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to free blacks, or that they fought the 1964 civil right acts tooth and nail. All they know is the Democrats promise them free money.

Blacks: Still living on the plantation.

Democrats are vicious with no conscience whatsoever, they are the sociopaths of politics. As far as I am concerned, Alan Grayson and his constituent types are the cause of the destruction of the political process in America.

I smell a pro se lawsuit from someone in his district. I wish I lived there just to do that. Otherwise pleased to live in deep red southern MS. Libel at the least. Unless the tea party is considered a public figure. Still there is the truth argument to be made. Make him prove Klan accusations.

He'll remember this when he's burning in Hell.

“But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile....and all LIARS —they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”
~Revelation 21:8

HE MUST NOT HAVE ANY GOOD QUALITIES THAT WOULD MAKE SOMEONE WANT TO VOTE FOR HIM IF HE HAS TO STOOP THIS LOW!

This is almost as bad as Algore calling people “deniers” because they believe Science over him.

Also from Alinsky: #5 “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

The main Rule of the Left that he is honoring is the one that says, "Blame your enemy for doing bad things that your group does".

The Democrats were by far the most numerous klan members!

"All violence is the result of people tricking themselves into believing that their pain derives from other people and that consequently those people deserve to be punished.” ― Marshall B. Rosenberg,

Nobody with half a brain or any part of a heart, should ever vote for this sub-human.

Don’t go giving the idiots any ideas they are already looking to create an incident that they can bootstrap into an American version of Krystalnacht why do you think they have been trying to demonize & dehumanize Tea party folks for the last several weeks.

I live in his recently gerrymandered district. I got rid of him once, but alas, didn’t drive the stake in far enough. How soon do you wish to swap houses?
