Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson, who is known for lobbing over-the-top rhetorical bombs at his political foes, once again is being accused of taking things too far -- after his campaign sent an email that compared the Tea Party to the Ku Klux Klan while depicting a burning cross. The email showed a large image of the flaming cross, with the letters "ea Party" etched in to the right of it. The caption read: "Now You Know What the 'T' Stands For." The email included "pointed analysis" from Grayson in which he said, "The Tea Party is no more popular than the Klan," blasting the conservative organization for its role in the showdown that resulted in the two-week partial government shutdown.

I for one have put Rep Grayson on notice. If, while attending a Tea Party or Overpasses for Impeachment rally I am in any way physically assaulted, and if there is the slightest reason to believe the perpetrator was in any way influenced by this outrageous Tea Party-kkk comparison, I will personally sue Mr. Grayson and his staff for vicarious liability. Ironically, this legal tactic was successfully used by the SLPC and NAACP concerning a racially motivated murder against White supremacist John Metzger. I've made this claim about Tingles Matthews, and many other "progressives" and I'll say the same thing here. Alan Grayson must be a closet racist himself. Instead of dealing with his own bigoted attitudes, he needs to project his personal racism on those who disagree. Why? To score "Brownie points" with the low-info schmucks who put him back in office? Or is he in reality a weak little man? Or both?

Not a lawyer, but somehow I don't think a "vicarious" lawsuit will make it to court.

That said, Grayson is a thug of the first order!

If Zerocare makes anyone “die quickly”, Grayson can be hammered with his own words.

Of course Grayson is way too ignorant and stupid to know the history of the KKK. The KKK was borne out of the anti emancipation movement of southern democrats. These southern democrats couldn't stand thinking that negroes were being granted equal protection under the law. No, the southern democrats liked things the way they used to be before the civil war. They loved it when all a white had to do was accuse a black of any crime and they were punished, even hanged without any due process. That they were losing that power over blacks whom they considered less than human was intolerable to the southern democrats, so they formed the KKK as a way of terrorizing any who would try to give blacks even simple rights to freedom and judicial processes.

Alan Grayson is a disgusting little swine.

No, graya$$ is a deranged, mentally retarded idiot of the first order. He is truly a dangerous individual, masquerading as a "congressman."

This criminal clown, Graybrainthugmatter, is the reason the founders meant for the Senate to be elected by the STATES, AND NOT THE GENERAL PUBLIC!

GDit! REPEAL THE DAMNED 17TH AMMENDMENT, and life might truly get back on an even keel.

As for Grayretard, an alligator is going to jump up and bite his butt off while he's laying in his hammock.

Too bad everyone thought the Bircher's were the "problem." BOOYA!

Sounds like a Freudian thing to me, if you know what I mean.

The Klan? I lived in LowerAlabama for six years and when I asked about the Klan they looked at me like I owed them money.

Do you think Grayson knows that the Klan was the militia arm of the Democratic Party?

Much like Sinn Fein and the IRA.

Does he know that George Wallace and Bull Connor were Democrats?

Yup, and he's really stupid too.

Just a little advice.

You should tell us what you really think. Holding back can cause constipation and even high blood pressure.

Uh, yea, you are correct.

My post got a little twisted.

I know that bung hole is a congressman.

BUT, the point I was trying to get across is that this wackadoodel would never be able to be so prominent IF THE SENATE WAS STILL CONTROLLED BY THE STATES!

Sorry, its an abstract point and I did NOT get it across clearly.

My Bad. Thanks for the upbraid.

LOLSNARFING UP MY NOSE!

I take LOTS of pills for high bp. I CAN HANDLE this!

I take good shots of Geritol for the constipation too!

Maybe I’m having too much fun here.

I don’t think there’s any point getting angry at Grayson. Like the Westboro Baptist Church, he knows very well that the things he says are disgusting and vile. He doesn’t care. His goal is to be disgusting and vile and piss off people who care about honesty and decency. He wants to give his left-wing constituency wet dreams. He wants angry attention. And he is getting it.

Therefore, we should deal with this d-ck the same we deal with the WBC: Ignore him.

Very best point. Ignore an ignorant fool, and the fool disappears.

When I consider the likes of some of the dangerous fools that are elected to office (Grayson, Waters, Pelosi et al) it really says more about the people than the politicians.

The problem in America is the “low information” a.k.a. stupid populace. This is what needs to be “fixed”....you can take that two ways.

Of course the Westboro Baptist Church is also the Westboro Baptist Church of the Democrat Party.

The Westboro Baptist Church, excellent analogy! Many wonder if Fred Phelps is a closet homosexual, because of the legendary gay hatred obsession this “church” is known for. This is why I question the racial attitudes of Grayson, and most other libs who incessantly play the race card.
