Congressman Alan Grayson Suggests a Burning Cross for Tea Party Logo
New York Magazine ^

Posted on 10/22/2013 1:35:32 PM PDT by nickcarraway

In an e-mail to supporters yesterday (and on his Tumblr), filter-deficient Florida congressman Alan Grayson, as is his wont, suggested that the t in tea party stands for a burning cross. As to his assertion that the tea party is actually "no more popular than the Klan," 26 percent of Americans support the tea party according to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, and we couldn't find any polls measuring support for the KKK but ... it's probably lower than that.

Grayson does not offer a source for the claim in his e-mail. Instead, it was hyperlinked to a campaign-donations page.

Who were the FReepers who called Grayson a “national treasure?” I can’t remember.

Tea partiers had our own ‘logo’.

We don’t need no stinking outsiders dictate logos for us.

Wrong party. Maybe it should go to the party of the KKK, or the party that interned many American Japanese in camps.

He knows that history and he knows what he's doing. He's as psychopathic as his mentor, Joseph Goebbels. These sickos are smart. They will win any war of words.

Congressman Alan Grayson Suggests a Burning Cross for Tea Party Logo

Funny how these cockroaches are coming out of the woodwork to use innuendo and accusations because they can't win using logic. This is one of Hussein 0bama's tactics, so I guess this SOB is a "Junior 0bama".

I’ve heard people ask why does the left so hate the Tea Party?

The answer is simple: the Tea Party movement has forced a conversation that no leftist wants; what is the role of government in our lives and what has happened to individual freedom and liberty in this country?

This is a discussion that the left does not want...they know they lose when the Tea Party points out that today’s democrat party has more in common with Karl Marx than with Ronald Reagan.

By bringing this up, the Tea Party forces the left into a position that they will lose every time and for this reason the left must do everything they can to destroy the movement.

Rebroadast this as “Alan Grayson supports KKK on his campaign literature.”

That message would go over real well with any black people in his district, who likely would not fact check it.

I've called Grayson many things, but never a national treasure -- unless poop is treasure worthy. Grayson, at one time, wanted to litigate the banks out of existence and there were a few FReepers who sided with him. One even went so far as to pronounce him a national treasure. I don't think you'll find that guy on the forum any longer.

In addition to being a lawyer who will sue anyone for any reason, Grayson also claims to be an economist. Grayson is nuts. Almost as nuts as the morons who voted for him.

I tried to contact him on his website, but, surprise, surprise, it wasn’t accepting emails from outside his district. Must be his fellow haters are congratulating him.

Its all fun and games for these degenerate socialist crooks until the right puts a stop to the parasite class and their enablers in DC stealing cash from us working stiffs via the legislative process.

Then these scumbags will have to try and take our money the old fashioned way, via armed robbery.
